Publisher's Summary

When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.

Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s 14 years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires. As Gabe pulls her into his provocative world, she realizes there’s a lot she doesn’t know about him or how exacting his demands can be. Their relationship is intense and obsessive, but as they cross the line from secret sexual odyssey to something deeper, their affair runs the risk of being exposed - and is vulnerable to a betrayal far more intimate than either expected.

    "Hot millionaires with a hero complex"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rush to be better than the print version?

    I love a good audio book.


    Any additional comments?

    Gabe rescues Mia from her own life. Why is it every good story is around someone - preferably rich and hot - rescuing a girl from her life? Believe me the story is good that is just a personal pet peeve. The story and series are worth a read just not a fan of that premise.

    "GRAPHIC EROTICA - BE READY..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but make sure I give disclaimer


    What other book might you compare Rush to and why?

    NONE.
    I felt like I was manipulated into participating in soft porn with how explicit sex scenes were explicitly explained.
    Dominate Powerful MEN and vulnerable YOUNG WOMEN


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

    No
    i was in shock with all the explicit sex scene and exploitation of young women...i


    Any additional comments?

    This book reminded me of when women will do to get/keep the man they choose.
    Because the book was a love story, I enjoyed it. However, I do not believe men like these DO NOT CHANGE BEING DOMINATE AND ABUSIVE TOWARD WOMEN....
    Because the book was a trilogy, i PURCHASED "FEVER", book 2.

    "Rinse and repeat of 50 Shades of Grey"
    What did you like best about Rush? What did you like least?

    Just ok.


    What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

    It is ridiculously similar to 50 Shades of Grey.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The female voices were too fake and forced from the male reader.


    Was Rush worth the listening time?

    It had its moments, but I'd look elsewhere.

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

    This book was sick and I couldn't do it. I got to the BJ in front of the room full of guys and about died. I hated the narrator too.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes, he made it MORE creepy - if possible


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.

    This type of book is degrading in my opinion! I prefer the female character to be stronger. I am afraid I did not finish the book.

    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Adam Paul?

    I have read other books by Maya Banks and enjoyed them. But not this one. It's disgusting!

    Cut out the outrageous sex scenes.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    This book has me wishing I hadn't wasted my money.

    Couldn't even make it through the first hour. The narrator was horrible and the storyline is like a cheap rip off of 50 Shades of Grey. Like really?!?!?!

    "This could have been so much better"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It started off really rough since the guy was just so rude. I think the author could have elaborated so much more on the "enchantment" between the characters for all these years before jumping into BDSM. that connection was missing.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was speaking so fast, like reading a text book as fast as possible. I think the main character came out so nasty instead of "alpha" male due to the performance.

    "I never write reveiws but now I will."
    What did you like best about Rush? What did you like least?

    Book two in the series is the only one worth listening to. You don't need to read these in order. She wrote this one in a hurry it seems like, and not worth using a credit.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Maya Banks again?

    Yes


    Have you listened to any of Adam Paul’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. He's a great narrator even though he had six or more characters to narrate for; he was believable.


    Did Rush inspire you to do anything?

    Find more books by her or similar authors.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen alone. It's XXX
