Description

Grounded, Book 3 in the Up In The Air Trilogy. James and Bianca's story draws to a close in the explosive conclusion to the Up In The Air Trilogy. After a short but earnest courtship, Bianca can no longer deny her feelings for James, and though she's tried her hardest, she can't help but see that he cares deeply for her, as well. In a completely uncharacteristic move, she has put aside her misgivings and agreed to live with the enigmatic billionaire.

Is her leap of faith the beginning of something wonderful, or is it too much, too fast? As James and Bianca feel a growing need for each other that neither can deny, circumstances beyond their control intervene, trying to tear them apart. Amid the ever mounting threat of a monster who wants Bianca dead, and the constant pitfalls of an indiscreet past that James can't seem to escape, can these two passionate lovers manage to find their happily ever after?

Amazing ending to a wonderful series!

If you could sum up Grounded in three words, what would they be?

James "Beautiful" Cavendish

What was one of the most memorable moments of Grounded?

If I told you that, I'd be giving things away. You must read this book and series, I absolutely LOVED it!!

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Powers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to her during this whole series, she is the best narrator I've listened to on Audible! Hands down!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Come fly the friendly skies!

Any additional comments?

Kicking myself for waiting so long to listen to this series, MUST READ/LISTEN!

IT'S OFFICIAL! I LOVED THIS MEMORABLE SERIES!!!

I finished this book yesterday and I just can't stop thinking about it. R.K. Lilley used a familiar theme (the DOM Billionaire tamed by love) and made it something unique, something memorable, and something touching. This book really compliments the first book well. In that, if you start reading the first book again, after this one, it's evident that James's pursuit of Bianca was singular, and he pretty much loved her from the moment he laid eyes on her.

As James and Bianca settle into their relationship, James is the one who doesn't change much from the beginning of the series. He continues to work toward a goal that puts Bianca in his life forever. OMG, how do I love that kind of romance!!!!

Part of the drama that ensues is from the worst kind of women, from his past, who start coming out of the wood work, but this book really settled the fact of how they were nothing to him. By the way, I LOVED how Bianca dealt with all the women who tried to ruin her relationship with James…I loved Bianca's spunk & well, she's just awesome…haha

James and Bianca have given me the best perspective of how a BDSM relationship works for two people who really desire that pain/pleasure aspect of intercourse. Yet, their relationship is far from defined by this preference in the bedroom, these two people adore each other, love deeply and share an effortless calm and serenity when in each other's company that feels real and beautiful. I was never disappointed with James…from the tender lover to the stark DOM, to the ravishing kindness and love he showered Bianca with during their everyday lives…he was simply perfection (even when he was mad). And, Bianca, well, you just can't get a more beautiful heroine, inside and out.

In terms of major themes in this series, Lilley did something very original. Her focus was on relationships, of course the one between James and Bianca was centerfold, but she also did an incredible job in developing the beautiful relationship between Bianca and Stephan and the rest of the friends in this book. During the most turbulent parts, my heart was racing and I felt on edge, but the ending was very true to the characters and gave them all a life they all deserved. I don't want to spill ANY details, because this book has to be experienced. I do want more though…..I felt like it finished and I want, well, at least a little more……


10 STARS FOR AN EXCELLENT SERIES THAT HAD ME CAPTIVATED AND ENTHRALLED!!!

Narrator- Elizabeth Powers was excellent and enhanced this audiobook experience as well as the author's writing talent. Excellent pairing---Lilley and Powers…fabulous!

WoW I'm Grounded - this was an AWESOME End

Any additional comments?

Wow - all i can say is I LOVED this 3rd and final book in this Amazingly Heart Pulling Story. It has absolutely everything once could desire - depth, angst, love, growth, acceptance, intrigue, horror, damage, blood, chaos, pain, suffering and almost death. Plus.... Devilishly yummy BDSM & even M/M. This was the perfect conclusion to this fabulous trilogy and i am sad the story is over. Elizabeth Powers done an immaculate job bringing all the wonderful characters to life threw-out and i give high praise to her magical voice changing skills.... :)

CAPTIVATING SERIES......LISTEN WORTHY!!!

I must applaud R.L. Lilley for wrting such an amazing series that had me on the edge of my seat for days.....I literally did not sleep between reading this series. I was captivated by the story and loved the narrator Elizabeth Powers - she brought the book to life and did a superb joy. She pulled me in with her voice and held me throughour the entire book. I was laughing and crying throughout the book. The ending had me literally in tears! I was hollering and couldn't finish the book fast enough to find out what happened. It has been a long time since a series held me so captivated. The book had so many cliffhangers that grabbed me and had my emotions fluctuating. There was so many things I loved about the book that it is hard to say here. It is a mixture of BDSM, friendships, hatred, living through the past, survival, action and most of all love. The author wrapped so many things in one and the level of research done for this book showed in the different scenarios written about. This is my first book by R.L. Lilley and I am not disappointed. I borrowed them on Audible escape but didnt hesitate to purchase every single book for my collection. Thank you for this.

Grounded ended

This author cracked me up with "took deep breaths" she was always taking deep breaths, it became comical. As well as saying "you're insatiable ". But the story kept me reading and rolling my eyes.

GREAT CONCLUSION!

This was a great ending to this series; it was emotional, and heart-wrenching. R.K. Lilley can do no wrong in my eyes! I love her writing style, and the characters she's created. All I want when I think of this series and the books/trilogies connected to this one, is MORE, MORE, MORE! Definitely credit worthy, and highly recommended.

The dialogue was torturous to listen to once James lost his balls

Story went from bad in book 2 to downright stupid in book 3. Big mistake to buy all three books at the same time as I did. Although book one was not original, it was at least entertaining. Starting book 2 and now extensively in book 3, the hero's character goes from a man to the person who's lines are much better suited to a woman. He CRIES as she accepts his proposal and she was just happy? Huh? And the feud between two friends now turned bitter enemies is resolved in 2.5 seconds?????? The story was painful to listen to. With his tears and need for constant reassurance I wondered if somewhere in the book he lost his balls and turned into a woman without any of us knowing. R. K. Likely seemed to want to try hard to have James say what she thought any woman would like to hear and be treated except it was so much that it was completely sappy and uninteresting and unbelievable. Nothing real about the interactions even for a romance novel. I'm just so relieved that in this book he finally earned his "red wings" NOT
Take your credit and run

James & Bianca

Audible Escapes review. Multiple POV (Bianca, Stefan & James). Book 3 of 4. No cliffhanger. Trigger warnings: 5 murders, BDSM scenes, MM, anal, child abuse, nipple piercing, and menstrual cunnilingus. Bianca (23 years old, aka Buttercup/Love) is a flight attendant whose airline is going bankrupt and furloughing employees but her art career is beginning. James (30 years old, aka Mr Cavendish/Master) is a billionaire orphaned hotelier dom. His obsessive pursuit of Bianca lasts through the release of his sex tape recorded 3 years prior to their relationship, his angry response to her visit with her half brother, him binding her and leaving her alone in a dark room then piercing her nipples, his proposal on Mt. Fuji, her shooting, their wedding and five years into their marriage to the birth of their son. Stefan, Bianca's gay best friend and "adopted brother", finds his own HEA with Javier after saving Bianca over the last 9 years of their friendship and killing her father. This is by far the best of the three books but still mirrors the Fifty Shades trilogy. JP
