Because of You is an emotional flight of love, loss, growth and discovery.
Growing up, Jimmy had his life mapped out. He knew exactly who he was, where he was going and who he wanted to be. As he approaches adulthood, Jimmy learns quickly that life doesn’t always turn out as you planned.
Through the course of the book, we see Jimmy grow from a child full of hope, to a young man with a broken heart and finally we see him become James. A man who discovers what he wants from life and goes after it. This is the story of James’ lifelong journey to make his Dreams come true and Unleash his hidden Desires. As C.S. Lewis said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
While Because of You is the third book in the Loft Series, it is not a continuation of the two previous books. This book is a little different from the Desires Unleashed and Dreams in that it is centered more around the character of James and his life, rather than the happenings of Mitch and Molly (the leads from the previous books). Let me just say that Because of You is a wonderful addition to the series. It shows Miles Hightower’s ability to change things up and deliver a new story while still remaining true to the theme of the series. Well done Mr. Hightower!
I very much enjoyed reading about the lesser known and somewhat mysterious James. His dreams became mine and his heartbreaks caused my tears to flow. There were some really emotionally charged moments, quite a few surprises and Miles Hightower’s trademark erotic scenes. Let me just say that while reading (sometimes one handed), my tissues were useful for more than just drying tears. Once again Miles Hightower has written a captivating and sexy story that kept me wanting to read just one more chapter.
Weather you’ve read Desires Unleashed and Dreams already, I urge you to oneclick Because of You and learn why James is my new BBF. I happily give Because of You 5 stars and can’t wait to see what else Miles Hightower has up his sleeve for the members of The Loft.

For some reason I can’t give Sheila, just a kiss. What I meant as a simple, sweet, thank you gesture for a wonderful meal, doesn’t happen. When my lips touch hers and our breaths exchange, I don’t want just a kiss from her anymore. I crave more. One of my hands reaches around to Sheila’s lower back and pulls her body in close. My other hand runs up her cheek, dives into the hair behind her ear and clenches it tight, so she can’t pull away. I feel her body relax into my arms as our kiss deepens. My hand slides down and cups her ass for a moment before it lifts her bare thigh up alongside my hip. I fuel my desire for her by running my hand along the underside of her leg, until I get to her knee, soaking up her soft skin. Pulling her hips close, I can feel her pushing her hips into mine as she leans into me. Running back up the bottom of her thigh, I reach under her shorts and follow the curve of her ass until my fingers find their way to the crack in the middle. To my surprise, I can’t feel any type of panties covering her. I give a muffled moan of pleasure at the discovery and feel Sheila smiling as we continue kissing. Sheila breaks our kiss, then watches her hands as she runs them down over my chest and stomach. Looking down at her, I can see her chest expanding and contracting from her heavy breathing. Grabbing the bottom of my shirt she pulls it up until it’s high enough to expose my chest.
