Who is Iris? Where did she come from? Where has she gone? 

Alasdair Masters has more questions than answers about his new, too young obsession, and when he finds out she’s been lying to him, from their first meeting to their last one, he’s more confused than ever about her feelings, her intentions. 

And what’s just as confusing are his own feelings. Has he turned something purely physical into something emotional in his own head? Is any of it mutual? 

The only thing he doesn’t question is whether he’ll keep going back for more. 

Me, I was simple. I was order. A very neat, efficient machine that ran on nothing but air. 

Me plus anyone else, well, that was another matter. And me plus Iris, that was a monster of a machine, with all gears going at different speeds, some spinning off their hinges, just going mad, but it was a wonderful madness, at full throttle, misfiring in all directions. 

It felt wonderful and dreadful. 
I was breaking down, and it felt amazing. 
And terrifying. 

Liezel’s Thoughts:

“Iris” occurs  two months after The Wild Side with Iris having disappeared from Dair’s life. Because of the physical nature of their relationship and the fact that it was also based of a numerous secrets and lies you would never think that Dair would  be so broken up about it but surprisingly he is. Even with his means without Iris his existence seems  so dull and monotonous.

He attempts to move on and somewhat reenters the social scene yet dating remains out of the question for him. Even with multiple opportunities presented  he can’t seem to even imagine sleeping with anyone else. Then, without rhyme or reason Iris  reappears and while he should be more guarded when letting her back in he just can’t do it.

She is a force of nature. We find them continuing exactly right where they left off – hot and extremely heavy. They both know that whatever they have isn’t permanent  but that that doesn’t stop them from taking advantage of every single moment.

“In a world full of lies, you were my truth. You were my light and my compass.”

In this installment I thought that their relationship evolved beyond the physical. What’s crazy  is with their age difference (among other things) you would never think that Iris and Dair would have anything in common but for some odd reason they somehow fit -physically (oh my!) and intellectually.

Whatever Iris’s age may be she is way mature for her age. She gets him as he does her. And I found it  quite impressive how the author manages to make them work.

Despite the cliffhanger (and  I so  dislike cliffhangers) I found the second book  just as interesting as the first.  Don’t get me wrong I am  frustrated with where  things were left off but in my mind R.K. Lilley can never do wrong.

The entire series is intense and immensely intriguing  and  even with the wait I know that R.K. Lilley will make  it so worth our while like she always does with any book that she’s written.

The Verdict:




About R.K. Lilley

R.K. Lilley has been a writer since she can remember, but has held down some interesting jobs to pay the bills. For several years she was a first class flight attendant, and she always swore that she just had to write a book about it. Mixing her love of romance and all things BDSM, the Up In the Air Trilogy is her debut into the world of contempary romance and erotica. She is currently working on the final installment in the series.

    I never really thought about it…. I knew what too young or maybe too old would be for me.

    I had an age limit, my boyfriend broke it… 😀 It was 6 years older…he is 10 years older than me.

  3. Amanda Vinson

    I never had an age limit. I am 37 and my hubby is 54. We have been together for 16 years and married almost 15. If it works for you, go with it!!

  4. Kim Perry

    I really don’t have an age limit, but I don’t think I could date someone significantly younger than me or was the age of my parents.

  5. Juli Huber Hall

    I haven’t really thought about it, my hubby is 4 yrs older than me and we’ve been together 25 yrs and married 23. I don’t think I could be with someone too old or too young so prob 10 yrs age difference

  6. Julie K

    I did have an age limit for dating…..
    When I was younger I didn’t like to date anyone over 5yrs older than myself.
