    "Painful listen"

    Preface: I normally truly enjoy Maya Banks' books. I loved "Rush," the first book in this series. I was looking forward to this sequel, and was already intrigued by the male lead and the potential for another GREAT read. I am generally empathetic and sympathetic to characters with emotional baggage, and I do NOT enjoy writing negative feedback. That said...

    I found both the wildly exaggerated, stereotypical depictions of the poor innocent little destitute "victimized-by-the-big-mean-evil-rich-greedy society" female lead ("Bethany"), to be PAINFULLY, *stupidly/immaturely* gullible, irresponsible waif literally PAINFUL to endure. I repeatedly found myself exclaiming, "Oh, for F's sake!" and PRAYING that Jace would just WALK AWAY from Bethany. I don't want to believe that there is a significant target market of readers naive enough to find this melodramatically pathetic female lead or the plot appealing. It was nauseating. Gah. Maya can do SO MUCH BETTER than this.

    Story
    "Can't wait for the next one!"
    Would you listen to Fever again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen again. Although its definitely like Cinderella and there are moments when it really stretches the realm of possibility, I don't read/listen to books to be reminded of reality, so because of that, I enjoyed delving further into these main characters from this series. It smoldered with some of the sexy scenes, the interactions between the friends was always a bit comical to me, and it kept me on the edge a bit because the whole time I was a bit like, "how is this all going to unfold??"


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love all of the guys equally--I love their friendship, loyalty, honesty, and maybe I'm kinkier than I thought because I like how dominant they all are. The dominance does border on a little crazy, but, I think it's the power that comes across that is so delicious with these three. I'm really looking forward to the next book that tells Ash's story.


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

    Hard to make the call on this one. He does all the male lead characters really well, but if I had to choose I enjoyed Gabe from the first book and equally enjoyed Jase in this one. His narration was better in Fever than in Rush.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Toward the end I wanted to cry because of what happened to Betheny and Jase's reaction it was heartwrenching.


    Any additional comments?

    Buyt it! Great book, and I am enjoying the series!

    "SEEDY"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fever to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because I can have it read for extended periods of time rather than sitting down to read. The content was about the same. I like the unabridged much better in general.


    If you’ve listened to books by Maya Banks before, how does this one compare?

    I would say that her books are generally the same--love, sex, problem, problem solved, then marriage at the end. This one had a twist at the end, which kind of took my breath away.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Do not want to divulge because that might ruin it for others.


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

    Romance in the wild.

    Story
    "It's FICTION, people!"
    Would you listen to Fever: The Breathless Trilogy, Book 2 again? Why?

    Yes, and have done so many, many times along with the other two books in this series.


    What other book might you compare Fever: The Breathless Trilogy, Book 2 to and why?

    I love 99% of Ms Banks books, and this series does remind me of the "Colter's Legacy" series. The story include larger than life alpha males who were very protective, yet had a gentler softer side.


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

    Ash! Love his humor and laid back personality. I've known guys like Ash and they have always been a lot of fun to be with.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Luckily for me this book was only 12 hours long, so I was able to listen to the bulk while I was at work at my desk, then finished once I got home for the evening.


    Any additional comments?

    Many of the reviews I've read about this book was that premise was not believable. But, isn't that why we read/listen to fiction? Many male characters in Maya Banks' books and for that matter, many of the romance novels, are not about your every day fair. I don't read or listen to these books expecting to find the every day Joe. I want the fantasy that many of us have. This series stories are crazy, intense and sexy beyond what many of us will ever experience. So, yea, the story lines may seem impossible, but that's the beauty of the stories in the first place.

    "Jace and Bethany"
    Which character – as performed by Adam Paul – was your favorite?

    Jace is a dominant bordering on domineering. Personally I'm more a fan of Gabe but they're all pretty domineering.


    Any additional comments?

    The stories are good don't get me wrong I'm just tired of dominants being portrayed as domineering.

    "Rags to Riches, Again!"

    There is nothing new or spectacular about this story line, the characters, their situations and relationships. It is a solid effort by Maya Banks and what you would expect from this author in writing style, plot line and conclusion. If you like Banks, you'll like the book.

    Story
    "Sad and Sick."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Respect for humanity. Violence and abuse is a crime and not a sexual turn on. The author getting a jolt of conscience wight improve the work.


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Prostitution is a more honorable profession than writing sick pornography of violent abuse and degradation and implying that such behavior is sexy.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Paul?

    The narrator did a good job.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Revulsion and deeply saddened.


    Any additional comments?

    Uhh!
