BOOK REVIEW: Mr. Beautiful (Up in the Air #4) by R.K. Lilley

mr-beautiful-by-r-k-lilley

SYNOPSIS

I’ve been remade four times in my life.

It is a distinct feeling. Impossible to mistake. The very marked sensation of being unraveled and reknit into a new thing, a new person. It can be good or bad, helpful or harmful, but above all, it is unstoppable.

I was remade when my parents died, went from a happy childhood, into navigating a very dark world, with endless responsibilities, surrounded by enemies, and despairingly alone.

It happened again at the hands of a cowardly predator. I’d become angrier with that one, more cynical, and it undoubtedly turned me into the kinky f**k I was today.

The third happened swiftly. One day I looked up into a pair of pale blue eyes and saw the other half of my soul. Checkmate. I went from a completely controlled existence, a life where I made every decision with cold calculation, to a man overcome with feelings and emotions that were foreign but somehow wonderful.

And all too soon after that cataclysmic change was this fourth one, this one where I begged a God I’d never entertained to spare the life of a woman that I could not live without.

Follow all of the characters from the Up in the Air universe in the years after the trilogy, with POVs from James, Stephan, Frankie, Tristan, and Akira.

This book is intended for readers 18 and up

REVIEW

Ashley’s book review: 5 kinky Stars!!

Utterly captivating. Delectably sexy.  Absolutely. Completely. Loved this book!

Mr.Beautiful is a companion novel to the Up in the Air series from James’ POV. The book shifts from past to present and is in multiple POV’s throughout (James’ POV being the Dominate one… see what I did there… Dominate 😉 ). This book follows along with the first 3 books in the Up in the Air series, but also continues James and Bianca’s story.

James is by far my favorite Dom!

“Please, Mr.Cavendish.”  -Bianca

R.K. Lilley also treats us with Stephen’s POV (Bianca’s best friend) several times (both past and present POV). This is refreshing because we get to see Bianca and Stephen’s past in a different light and also learn what it was truly like for him growing up gay in a not so welcoming household. My understanding of Bianca and Stephen’s relationship is solidified. The bond between Bianca and Stephen is unbreakable! They are a “package deal”.

“We’re different flowers, but we were nurtured from the same damaged root.” –Stephen

There is PLENTY of ahem… hawt and steamy sex… in this book. There is no lacking in that department 😉

“And I loved touching her, in any way at all—sexually, chastely. Possessively. Covetously, tenderly, wonderingly. Reverently.”

Follow all of the characters from the Up in the Air universe in the years after the trilogy, with POVs from James, Stephan, Frankie, Tristan, and Akira.

Everything about this book met my every expectation and then some!

**Note: I personally would read the Tristan & Danika trilogy before reading Mr.Beautiful. There are parts in Mr.Beautiful that can give away some of their story and there are also bonus scenes at the end of Mr.Beautiful that, as a reader, you will not understand, unless you read Tristan & Danika’s story first.
