Maya Banks--Fever (Bk 2 The Breathless Trilogy)

Adult Contemporary Romance

Jace, Ash, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Jace, it’s a woman whose allure takes him completely by surprise...

Jace Crestwell, Ash McIntyre, and Gabe Hamilton have been best friends and successful business partners for years. They’re powerful, they’re imposing, they’re irresistibly sexy, and Jace and Ash share everything—including their women.

When they meet Bethany, Jace begins to feel things he’s never experienced before: jealousy, and a powerful obsession that threatens him, overwhelms him—and excites him beyond control.

Jace isn’t sharing Bethany—with anyone. He’s determined to be the only man in her life, and it’s jeopardizing a lifelong friendship with Ash. Bethany will be his and his alone. Even if it means turning his back on his best friend.

Fairy tales do come true.....

Well, I should have taken a break between books, because this one is at least 75 pages to long. BUT, I really wanted to know what happened to Jace and was compelled to rush into book 2. Jace and Bethany's story is not like any I have read. She has a backstory that doesn't usually get told, but it really did work out for the whole fairytale love story. Think "pretty woman" without the prostitution and add in a dominant alpha with a BDSM personality and voila! You have a story. Mistakes, trust issues, a destructive friend (on Bethany's side), and you have a mix that was compelling, and even romantic at times. Who wouldn't want to be swept off their feet and pampered like a princess? Too long for my taste, but a great story anyway. Going to move on to Ash after a "break" to clean my brain....
