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.
If you like a steamy romance with a dominant male at the helm (and frankly, who wouldn't?) then you will love this book by Maya Banks. I am sure I was blushing in the office breakroom listening to the splendid narration on my lunch break!
Loved the characters and the way the storyline swept me away.
Unlike some listeners, I love a male voice reading these types of stories. Adam Paul's melodic tones lead to many of the aforementioned blushes.
I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
I love the new trilogy from Maya Banks. the people she creates make you feel thier desire, thier pain, and longing. this book was great with S&M and a love story, with the promise of more in this world I can't wait.

I loved the story, loved Mia and her strength, hated Gabe (and don't we love to hate the villain!!)
That Mia trusted Gabe even though it was tough to do and he misused it sometimes.
No I haven't
