When Gabe offers her an outrageous proposition Mia may be shocked but she is unable to deny the excitement that bubbles within her at the chance to be Gabe Hamilton’s woman. even if it’s only temporary.
While Gabe and Mia go into this thinking of it as temporary what will happen when feelings begin to go deeper and they start thinking in the long term? Can Mia fit into Gabe’s kinky lifestyle and can Gabe be a forever type of guy? What will happen when the world discovers their secret; more importantly what will Mia’s brother and Gabe’s best friend have to say about it? Will they survive the odds stacked against them?
Maya Banks Rush is packed with explosive passion and scandalous sex that will leave the reader breathless! Gabe and Mia absolutely pour out their souls in Rush. I thoroughly enjoyed this book but it bothered me a little bit at how much it is like other erotic books that I have read lately. I think the trend of the hot dominant New York man and the tough but submissive female is going strong because of the erotic novels surge in popularity right now. There is nothing wrong with it but I think the elements in these types of stories need to mix it up a little.
One thing that excites me about Rush is the fact that the story wraps up in one book. Rush gives the reader tons of passionate angst and hot sex and it gives us an ultra-satisfying ending. I must say Ms. Banks gives her reader one top-notch ending in Rush, it’s definitely goosebump worthy. Another thing that stands out about Rush are the other men in the story. Mia’s brother, Jace and his and Gabe’s other best friend, Ash, make a good impression on this reader and makes me very excited to see what happens next in Fever, book two in the Breathless Trilogy.
