Review: Rush by Maya Banks

Rush (Breathless, #1)

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.

I love Maya Banks style and this new series sounds more like erotica than a contemporary, but I actually liked Mia, even if she’s young and had no idea about dominant man in the first few chapters, we can see her trying things for Gabe and discovering a different side of a sex life that is really fitting for her.

I was not a fan of Gabe during some parts and he had some reasons for his reactions and his plans. Another woman hurt him and he’s also trying to understand his parents divorce. He’s controlling and very sure if his needs but I liked how attracted he became during the sex and how much he lots control.

This couple was a nice fit, because they learned together about real love and discovered a nice relationship can be created with some plans and rules.
