Burn: Breathless, Book 3 | [Maya Banks]

Burn: Breathless, Book 3

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. 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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "I LOVE ME SOME ASHE!!!!"
    Where does Burn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    NUMBER 4 FOR SURE!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ashe, he is so ALPHA MALE!!! I love his personality and his no non-sense attitude. But, he is also sweet and caring. A man that has no issues with who he is. I love his "take me or not mentality. Ashe is so cooooolll... Yeah, A man's man.... Love it.


    Which character – as performed by Adam Paul – was your favorite?

    Ashe! Adam Paul is a wonderful narrator...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    WORK and Play HARD!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED the breathless trilogy. But, I think we need a book about Brittney and her new love!!

    "So sad Breathless is over but its a Perfect end"
    Any additional comments?

    Breathless is one of my favourite book addictions. I'm So happy Ash has found the love of his life with Artist Josie. It was an exciting ride to the very end. As always there is lot's of Hot wild sex with heaps of emotions and Love thrown in. We have all our favourites from book one and two entwined into this wonderful story perfectly. Sadly Breathless is over but i will be re-visiting this trilogy over and over again. I have really enjoyed every single minute.

    Story
    "WONDERFUL COMPELLING ENDING TO AN INTENSE TRILOGY"

    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.

    "Not MB's Best"

    I love MB but this book fell short for me. It had been a while since listening to the first two books and I listened to them when I first started with audio books. Having listened to other books I now know I don't particularly like this narrator. Maybe that is what throws me off this book. He cannot make his voice different for the male characters and his female voice sucks. This irritated me throughout the entire listen. He often reads very quickly trying to invoke emotion into his voice that just falls short. On top of that I felt the connection between Ash and Josie was just rushed. It happened too fast for my taste and therefore hard to buy into the connection. I need to feel the tension between characters to understand how they are connected. I understand love at first sight but I think this pushed the envelope a bit. I liked that the other characters were included in this book but felt like it repeated itself with the "girls night out" scenes. Although I have to say those parts are funny and I enjoyed them. There was a lot of sappy romantic banter from Ash that just did not jive with his character bring dominant. I sometimes felt he was not dominant but overbearing to a fault. I did like the plot twist at the end but it could have happened earlier and been developed further. Don't want to give any spoilers so will not say more. Overall I just felt that things were rushed throughout and it did not meet my expectations. It was not terrible but nothing great. If you started this series the it is worth getting this book to see how it all comes together.

    "ANOTHER GREAT READ FROM MAYA"
    Any additional comments?

    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!!

    "Leaves You Burning"

    You want sexy? You want sex? You want heat? This book has it. Now , the story line is a bit shallow but I just might forgive the author and just enjoy it for what it is... a delicious indulgence.

    "Best of the series"

    This was the best of the series. Ashe was the most impressive of the three men. Glad the ending was not just sexy, itwas heart warming as well.

    "Very, very disappointing"
    What did you like best about Burn? What did you like least?

    I honestly didn't like very much about this book at all. There were pockets of good moments but even those were painfully predictable. After reading book one of the trilogy, RUSH (which I thoroughly enjoyed) I was expecting the next two to be equally as enjoyable but they were not. They were just remakes of the first but neither was as good.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Maya Banks? Why or why not?

    I'm not sure if I'll read another of Maya's books. Perhaps my mistake was reading this entire trilogy back to back as I did. Maybe I'll give her another chance. We'll see. It definitely won't be anytime soon though!


    What aspect of Adam Paul’s performance would you have changed?

    His voice became very annoying after a while. It just wasn't believable. He wasn't speaking naturally the way people normally speak.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I would definitely go see RUSH, and I might go see FEVER but I would most definitely not go see BURN.

    "Just as good as the first two in the trilogy!"
    Any additional comments?

    As it's previous two following up to this installment, it does not disappoint. Ties up some loose ends from the first two books. Good story, although short listen, still worth the credit. Maya Banks succeeds again! Oh so sexy is Ash McIntyre, yum yum!
