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.

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

Listen alone. It's XXX
This is one of the worst books I have ever purchased. The narration was horrible, there was no story line, I felt cheap listening to it, I could not finish reading. Do not waste your credit or time.
I have other books by Maya Banks but this is my first time with Adam Paul. He is not a bad narrator but he seems miscast for this type of series.
Story was ok. Nothing super original or that hasn't already been done in this genre already. Lots of similarities to FSoG and overall it is better written than the Crossfire series.
His voice is too mature for a 38 year old man. If the main character was an older gentlemen then he would have been a good fit here.
I am going to give the second book a go even if it does sound like David Rossi from Criminal Minds is talking dirty to me!
I've listened to several Maya Banks stories and typically love them. This book however was a complete disappointment. It seemed that the story was actually secondary to the sex. The way the female character was portrayed was degrading and pathetic. On top of all of that it was completely predictable.
So far this series is a poorly rewrite of Fifty Shades of Grey, down to the contract, spanking, rich guy and his dominating tendencies. Narration was good, but story is written better in the original book Fifty Shades...
Tell us about yourself!I have been reading constantly threw audio books sense a verry small age and have never lost the love of them.
this is okay but there a million like it out there. it has a lot of sex that sounds like every other sex seen. there is a bad porno like plot that you do not really need to follow to know what is going on. if you just want sex with not much brain power needed than read it. narration is average.
I would have given it zero, but you need a least one to write a review.
This book is just thinly disguised porn.
After reading reviews on this I was skeptical, but, as a Maya Banks fan I thought I'd give it a try. I'm really happy I did, although I completely understand why many reviewers had some negative comments. I too felt a little dirty initially--the whole May/December relationship, accompanied by Gabe's (male lead) aggressive demands of Mia (female lead)--but, by the end I was loving both of them and rooting for their relationship. This is a sexy listen, with interesting characters. If you like 50 Shades or anything along those lines, you'll likely enjoy Rush. The narrator is average, but, he does a better job in the second book.
I preferred Adam Paul's performance in Rush to his performance in the KGI series because I was used to Harry's voices.
The story was entertaining. I am not a fan of kinky sex. However, the delivery was not too severe in this case. Not a spectacular story - I much prefer the KGI series. But, worth a listen. Maya Banks is an extraordinary talent. Her range is phenominal!
This book is just a detailed pornographic how to be a submissive woman and her master. When it comes to romance books with adult themes, I listen and read female authors because I believe that women know what women like. This author proved me wrong. In the Breathless trilogy, as well as with the Sweet series, this author treat women as submissive, slaves to rough sex and being manhandled. I feel that these books are an insult to abused women and women in general. Also the language used by the characters, is a good example of how men speak in a trashy bar or by uneducated, crude men. I like lots of Ms. Banks other books, but Rush, Fever and Sweet Surrender are the worst books I have listened. They read like porno books written by a man. So if you like books that treat women as weak, idiots who cannot survive without a man spanking, insulting and physically and emotionally abusing them, then these books are for you.
