Maya Banks--Rush (Book 1 of the Breathless Trilogy)

Adult Contemporary Romance

Gabe, Jace, and Ash: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Gabe, it’s making one particular fantasy come true with a woman who was forbidden fruit. Now she’s ripe for the picking...

When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.

Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s fourteen years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

As Gabe pulls her into his provocative world, she realizes there’s a lot she doesn’t know about him or how exacting his demands can be. Their relationship is intense and obsessive, but as they cross the line from secret sexual odyssey to something deeper, their affair runs the risk of being exposed—and vulnerable to a betrayal far more intimate than either expected.

{4 stars}
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, honestly I wasn't expecting to like it. It kind of fell somewhere in between Fifty Shades and Crossfire in plot line and sometimes MB gets lost in the sex and forgets the story. But, even though I did skim a lot of it (it was kind of long winded), I really did enjoy Mia and Gabe. Gabe has known Mia almost her entire life, she is his best friends little sister after all. But the "always in control" Gabe doesn't know what hit him when he realizes how much power Mia has over him. He is in love with her, probably always has been. But falling in love brings him outside of his comfort zone and he makes mistakes. Big, big mistakes and pushes her away. But how can he live without her? Mia and Gabe are great characters, and I am looking forward to reading Jace and Ash's stories. Don't let your mind make to many comparisons to Fifty Shades or Crossfire, and you will enjoy this trilogy.
