[Audiobook Review] Rush by Maya Banks

Rush (Breathless, #1)Rush
Maya Banks
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.

“Some crushes just never went away. They built, instead, into something permanent, obsessive and all consuming.”
Gabe wanted Mia for years just as she wanted him. When he finally decides to take that step, he makes her sign a contract to ensure that his public figure will not be compromised. Things between them heat up fast and as soon as Mia signs it, she’s expected to be in his will. But what scares her the most is that she loves it. and she might not ever recover after a man like Gabe Hamilton. 

“He kissed her as though he were starved for her. Like he'd been held away from her and had finally broken free. It was the kind of kiss that lived only in her fantasies. No one had ever made her feel so..consumed.”

The story was a little much for me since I’m not very big on erotica. But since there was a lot of story to it, I still enjoyed reading about Gabe and Mia and how their relationship progressed. I wish I could have seen more emotions throughout the book and not just dirty, rough sex scenes that were getting boring very fast. 

“You can't control everything. You can't control how someone feels about you. Or what makes them tick. You can only control how you react, how you act, how you think and feel.”

Best part of the book was definitely the ending. It was emotional, beautiful, and sweet. Something that the rest of the story lacked. I hope that second book in Breathless Trilogy will be better.
