Well it's actually not Dan. It's his wife who can't figure out how to change that on the profile. But I love to read and listen to books.
Yes, I have enjoyed the trilogy. I liked how you continued to learn about the characters from the previous books.
I liked the unexpected conflict in this book.
I have listened to Adam Paul in all three books. He did a great job with each character's voice.
No crying or laughing. There were parts that were intense.
I felt this was a good ending to all three books and I liked how they were all tied together.
I could not get in to this book. First, it was tending toward a Shades of Gray type book. I also could not buy the story line. I was figuratively rolling my eyes before the third chapter. I'm sure many will probably like the book. It just wasn't appealing to me. I don't think I will buy this author's books again.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Yet again Maya Bank's crafts another well-written awesome book that has passion, hot hot sex, danger, romance, tension, comedy and fills it with the main characters having both sexual and sensual chemistry by the bucket full and the story just seamlessly flowed into an intense action-packed listen. You can't help but become emotionally invested in her characters and the trials and tribulations they inevitably become involved in as their love story slowly and deliciously unfolds.
Ash, an alpha male whose complex, handsome, dominant, filthy rich, controlling, very charismatic and tortured by his past but he feels something's missing from his life - then he sees Josie across the Park and finally all the pieces suddenly fit together and, as their eyes meet, it was lust, and maybe love, at first sight. He was a tender, thoughtful, protective but a dominant lover and that's just how Josie wanted it. That is until secrets and betrayal threatened everything but worse was yet to come as a previous enemy seeks revenge and launches an attack that was shocking and nearly ruined all three men's perfect lives.
Very plot invested secondary characters who brought a lot of fun, drama and depth to the storyline without drowning it. Not really a stand-alone listen.
Worth a credit? Yes it would've been but my 'under $10' rule applied so I just bought it and very glad I did as Ash is both my Forbidden Fantasy and my Knight in Shining Armour and it's been a great series.
This series is full of alpha males, steamy sex, suspense and laughter, and this book is the best of the three. Each of the female lead characters have different personalities, but have one thing in common-- attraction to dominant men. It makes for a great listen. The ending was one that I didn't anticipate, and I liked that too. Adam Paul is a good narrator. Well worth the credit, but start at the beginning of the trilogy and listen to them all-- you won't be disappointed.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
This is the third installment in the Breathless Series-A Series that isn't more than it claims to be. These are not complex, challenging books to listen to. The characters are not super deep...if you are looking for an easy read with straight forward plot that is mostly about sex-this is it.
Ash, Jace, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They're accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Ash, it's the woman who changes everything he’s ever known about dominance and desire....
When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side - extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Even the ones he's shared with his best friend, Jace.
But Jace is involved with a woman he has no intention of sharing. And now even Gabe has settled into a relationship with someone who gives him everything he needs, leaving Ash feeling restless and unfulfilled.
Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

You really should read these in order or much of this book will not make sense.
Strong, solid, steady.
I am always impressed with male narrators who can portray female characters without making them sound like effeminate men-he does a good job.
NOTE: Strong language and explicit sex
Like I've said many times, in my opinion, nobody writes a romance novel like Maya!! Adam Paul does a wonderful job with the narration and has a very sexy voice. My only problem is....SHE CAN'T WRITE THEM FAST ENOUGH FOR ME!!
Say something about yourself!
As for the entire trilogy I have to give it overall a 4.0. Not a lot of surprises, the world of these books is rich in detail, mostly plausible scenarios (except book 2), and for the most part imparts the age old knowledge that men really are thick headed...and us women have to keep forgiving them or the earth would no longer be populated.
This book followed the same formula as books 1 and 2....man meets woman, man is oddly attracted to woman...on a primal level of course...man is obsessed with woman...woman is overtaken by mans desire and then man screws up and woman must forgive him...or once again we have the population issue!
Sometimes I really don't like Maya Banks stuff...she is for sure off in her own world and writes to please herself, not her readers...but at least she gets the hot scenes HOT! This book is no exception...and to the person out there who gives a below three star rating because they feel it's pornography with barely a plot...I encourage you to READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU BUY!!!! Maya writes hot...if you don't like reading graphic scenes of submission, Dominance, and pure hot sex...then don't get the book, and stay away from Shayla Black while you are at it too!
The book is under $10, so just buy it.
Maya Banks knocks it out with these 3 books Gabe Jace Ash Mia Bethany Josie all great characters
