Slightly Better Than 50 Shades..

Rush: Book One of the Breathless Trilogy – Maya Banks

Romance, erotica, fiction.

Rating 7/10

Gabe saw Mia throughout his life and had always wanted her for a long time. He had waited until the right moment to make a move but afraid of her brother, his coworker and best friend. Mia expressed to him that she fantasized him also and this intensifies their hidden affair. As their affair intensifies, they deeply fall in love with each other. When Mia’s brother finds out, all hell is loose, and it takes everything to get Mia back into Gabe’s life.

This book was realistic and hardcore erotic from page one to the last page. However, I don’t like the BDSM parts which is contradictory because those scenes are the erotic hot scenes. I preferred to ignore the BDSM aspect and read this as a romance novel. I did enjoy the plot and the author really was able to fit a lot into the three hundred and ninety-six pages. I would recommend this novel over reading Fifty Shades series as this novel carries more romance and more plot.
