Publisher's Summary

James
She was my sin and my temple. I both worshipped and defiled there. Gloried and desecrated. Revered and debased.
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.
Mr. Beautiful is a continuation of the Up in the Air series, told from the male point of view, with POVs from James, Stephan, Tristan, Frankie, and Akira.
This book is intended for readers 18 and up.

Like having all of the Disney characters together

This book is a bit of a hodgepodge of blended memories past-present and it got confusing at times with the way the stories were told (Mostly through James' perspective), but I would take it that way and another other way R.K. Lilley would choose to write it. Mainly, because this is a book written for the fans and, as a fan, it was not too difficult to keep up. I LOVE how James fell for Bianca…so thoroughly, so deeply, and so--yes--well, sexually. Their love affair was beautiful and let me say they have A LOT of sex…like A LOT…LOL. This book also shares their most tender moments. I didn't care for the flashbacks of James with other women in the sex club (Before Bianca), but hey, that's part of the story too (his sordid past). But, I adored the epilogue portion that also contained Tristan & Danika (that's all I will say so as to not give anything away).

It's kind of funny, but the way other characters from the "Up In the Air" series are combined in this story and it reminded me something like having all of the Disney characters together….

Even though Bianca and James' love story was compelling…HANDS DOWN--my favorite part of this book was the parts about Tristan and Danika. I can't even begin to describe how mesmerized Tristan and Danika's story has been for me personally. That couple's story has made an indelible mark on my heart--more than any other couple I have read in novels. Their love is full of heart ache, but in this book R.K. LIlley gives fans sheer pleasure (BUT NOT ENOUGH) with the added epilogue (through Tristan's perspective) and a taste of their GOLDEN YEARS. All I can say, is that I NEED more Tristan and Danika's golden year moments….PLEASE R.K. Lilley….write more about Tristan and Danika's golden year-moments in the books that follow…

Also, Heath and Lourdes book is going to be smokin' hot!!! When I think about Lourdes, I think about Sofia Vergara. I can't wait till their book is released in audio version.

Lastly, Jason Clarke's narration was sexy as hell. Beautiful narrator….perfect for the voice of Mr. Beautiful. The only note on my part is that Stephan is officially STEVEN…because the narrators from the books that followed the "Up in the Air" series--none of them pronounce his name they way it was originally introduced. Oh well…sorry Stephan…I mean Steven….LOL

The POV of the men in Bianca's life

Any additional comments?

Mr. Beautiful is a continuation of the Up in the Air series with POVs from James, Stephan & Tristan. It was fun and interesting to get into the heads of these three men. The book helped to get an overall picture of the series and helps nicely finish it off. I really enjoyed it and the narrator was great. Not a must read because it just goes over stuff you pretty much already read but if you really liked the series and like getting a different POV then you will like this book.
