Review: In Flight by R. K. Lilley

16134782“Bianca is accustomed to dealing with supermodels and movie stars in her job as a first class flight attendant, but James Cavendish puts them all to shame in the looks department. If only it were just his looks that she found so irresistible about the intimidating man, Bianca could have ignored his attentions. But what tempts her like never before is the dominant pull he seems to have over her from the moment they meet, and the promise of pleasure, and pain, that she reads in his eyes.”

The Good: The love interest is hot and I really like the setting of the book. I don’t think I’ve read anything involving flight attendants and first class travelers before, so I decided to give this book a chance to show me a fast pace romance could happen. I was also very curious about the different settings that would be portrayed in the book. I thought the narration was consistent and I don’t recall seeing any grammatical errors.

The Bad: The character development was very poor. The plot had potential but the writer didn’t even try. The description of their love scenes were complicated and hard to picture. The relationship between the main characters was forced and unnatural. Even if the relationship made sense in the author’s head, the description in the book was vague and I was not able to connect with the characters actions and motives.

The Ugly: That ending was horrible. I don’t have a problem with cliffhanger endings that will be resolved in a sequel but there is an art to writing, and part of that is to write a book that can be a stand-alone. I know it says book one on the cover and that’s enough for the reader to know that the story will continue, but this book ends at the climax of the story.
