I have been tearing through the romance novels lately. I can't seem to buy them fast enough and so I picked In Flight because it was high up on the New Adult list on Amazon.
In Flight tells the story of Bianca, a first class flight attendant who has an extreme rags to riches story. Growing up with an abusive father and later becoming homeless, Bianca now treasures everything she has. She's got a great house, a great friend and a job that allows her to travel all over the country. One day on a routine flight, she meets James Cavendish. This gorgeous and enigmatic billionaire won't take no for an answer when he pursues Bianca. While it seems like a fun and romantic ride, their troubled pasts may just ruin their futures.
Now, this was not one of my favorite romance novels. It's another one of those stories on the heels of Fifty Shades of Grey and it just didn't do the theme justice. I'm all for stories that follow the similar structure of Fifty Shades... if they're done well. There are not to many out there. I ended up enjoying Bared to You as I got further in the series, but most of the books following the Christian and Ana route are just poor attempts.
I did really like Bianca's character. She had a bad past which lead her to be very protective of her future. She valued that which she had and she guarded her heart. I loved her independence and her defiance in the face of a very domineering and controlling man.
As I said earlier, the writing wasn't stellar and the story was fairly predictable. The one thing that caught really caught my interest was Bianca as a character and finding out about her past. I will be gong on to read book two because I feel like I owe this one the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully it gets be excited about the series!
