I love Audible!
Adam Paul is my FAVORITE narrator! I wish he had more books he has done. He is so very talented. Yeah, Adam Paul is all that...
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Before purchasing a book i like to read the reviews of others. I found quite a few that are to busy comparing this book to 50 Shades and I think that it is narrow minded of some. After listing to this wonderful book i can't wait to listen to the next. Maya Banks has done a great job with the story and i also enjoyed Adam Paul's narration. With so many of these sexy sort of books out there these day's it is a listening feast for me. I love all the authors as individuals. It is plain to see by the description one reads before buying a book what sort of story it is going to be. If you can't handle the Heat - Stay away from the fire...
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
After reading so many reviews i was a bit hesitant to buy it. But i took a chance and it turned out.... hmmm okay. I already knew what i was in for i think that's why i just went with it. No disappointment, cause i didn't expect anything more than what it had to offer.
if you're looking for 50 shades material? Maybe it resembles some.. with all the billionaire dom and mild bdsm plays.. but if you're looking for christian grey material, i don't think this fit the bill so much. Whatever incorporated in 50, it turned out to be a bit too extreme and debased here. The hero was just a f*cked up character. There was no dramatic childhood or explanation to how he became the way he was either... in plain writing he was just naturally f*cked up and selfish. Not really likable.
It wasn't a bad read though... just readable.
Yes. This story is intense and yes it does have moments that are quite disturbing but it is revealing.
When Gabe realized the depth of love he actually has for Mia, and Mia's determination to love him through himself.
He did a great job portraying the characters and events.
Anything worth having is worth fighting for.
This is not a romance. It was just erotic sadistic sex. There is absolutely no story whatsoever. I have never been so very disappointed in a book. It made me sick! It is a display of abuse and dysfunction. I so wish I would have listened to the other reviews and not wasted my time and money on this.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
i liked the story ok....
.the ending for the couple
worst narration i have heard...
it will make you appreciate christian grey
The audio performance is most certainly better than the print version. It is commanding, suspenseful, erotic and almost unreal in its journey to self fulfillment.
There are so many memorable moments of Rush, but one which stands out to me, is the fact that Mia chose to sign the contract knowing full well the consequences of her signature.
The character of Mia, the innocent looking slut, the vulnerable heroine, the ice queen who loves to have sex all the time.
Sex is a natural addiction and the story of Rush - trilogy book 1 illustrates the power of sex and its all consuming desires in the minds of both men and women.
I wonder which character is Maya Bank in the Trilogy book 1.
I'm a fantasy book hoarder!! :-) I am a mother of two small beautful childeren and my books are my way of getting away for a little break!!!
OK THIS WAS MY FRIST MAYA BANKS BOOK. I LIKED IT BUT IT WAS A LITTLE WORDY AND I HATED THE NARRATER I THINK IF IT WASNT FOR HIM THE BOOK WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT BUT HE JUST WASNT THE PERSON FOR THE JOB!!! I HAVE READ THE REVIEWS FOR HER OTHER BOOKS AND THEY SOUND GREAT. I'M NOT GIVE UP ON HER BOOKS I JUST HOPE SHE DOESNT USE THIS ADAM GUY AGAIN B/C I DONT KNOW IF I CAN LISTEN TO A SEX SCENE WITH HIS VOICE AGAIN!!!
OFF MY SAOP BOX ABOUT THAT!!
THE BOOK WAS GREAT! IT WAS STEAMY AND SWEET AND VERY WELL WRITEN A LITTLE WORDY BUT IF U CAN GET PAST THE VOICE IN YOUR EAR IT WORTH IT TO TRY THIS BOOK! WILL RECOMMAND BUT TO READ NOT TO LISTEN!!!
I would find another narrator I don't know if it's the fact that a man is trying to do a book which is mostly a female character but it didn't work for me.
Liked the story and the ending was great.
