So, I didn't hate it

In Flight (Up In The Air, #1) - R.K. Lilley

Status updates

@17%: A very sensible friend Stephan is letting Bianca be taken back to her hotel room drunk with a man they'd met only once before, who in fact has made it very clear that he wants to have sex with her.

 

@21%: "I'm going to tie you to my bed and take your hymen."

Good grief! Now that's sexy talk for ya! Jeez man, you just stuck two of your fat fingers up there - I really doubt she has a hymen left.

 

@30%: I do love that she paints.

 

Overall

Very 'Fifty Shades' - yes, I probably liked Bianca better than Ana since she seemed to at least try to keep the controlling to the bedroom - but the similarities are glaring -

  • the naive virgin
  • the "mercurial" traumatised-by-childhood billionaire
  • the "preposition"
  • the playroom in his penthouse
  • taking the photos portraits of her
  • etc.

I wouldn't be surprised if in the next book, he plays the piano or something.

 

So, I didn't hate it. I know a lot of people have said this but I did love Bianca and Stephan's friendship. Maybe though I just don't like reading about BDSM since it always seems so dangerous when the person is "fucked up" (quote Christian and Bianca). Apparently no "normal" person with a happy childhood can be into it. Depending on the price I might read the next one but if it's just 'Fifty Shades #2' then I doubt I'll keep going.
