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.

The audio performance is most certainly better than the print version. It is commanding, suspenseful, erotic and almost unreal in its journey to self fulfillment.
There are so many memorable moments of Rush, but one which stands out to me, is the fact that Mia chose to sign the contract knowing full well the consequences of her signature.
The character of Mia, the innocent looking slut, the vulnerable heroine, the ice queen who loves to have sex all the time.
Sex is a natural addiction and the story of Rush - trilogy book 1 illustrates the power of sex and its all consuming desires in the minds of both men and women.
I wonder which character is Maya Bank in the Trilogy book 1.
I'm a fantasy book hoarder!! :-) I am a mother of two small beautful childeren and my books are my way of getting away for a little break!!!
OK THIS WAS MY FRIST MAYA BANKS BOOK. I LIKED IT BUT IT WAS A LITTLE WORDY AND I HATED THE NARRATER I THINK IF IT WASNT FOR HIM THE BOOK WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT BUT HE JUST WASNT THE PERSON FOR THE JOB!!! I HAVE READ THE REVIEWS FOR HER OTHER BOOKS AND THEY SOUND GREAT. I'M NOT GIVE UP ON HER BOOKS I JUST HOPE SHE DOESNT USE THIS ADAM GUY AGAIN B/C I DONT KNOW IF I CAN LISTEN TO A SEX SCENE WITH HIS VOICE AGAIN!!!
OFF MY SAOP BOX ABOUT THAT!!
THE BOOK WAS GREAT! IT WAS STEAMY AND SWEET AND VERY WELL WRITEN A LITTLE WORDY BUT IF U CAN GET PAST THE VOICE IN YOUR EAR IT WORTH IT TO TRY THIS BOOK! WILL RECOMMAND BUT TO READ NOT TO LISTEN!!!
I would find another narrator I don't know if it's the fact that a man is trying to do a book which is mostly a female character but it didn't work for me.
Liked the story and the ending was great.
If you like a steamy romance with a dominant male at the helm (and frankly, who wouldn't?) then you will love this book by Maya Banks. I am sure I was blushing in the office breakroom listening to the splendid narration on my lunch break!
Loved the characters and the way the storyline swept me away.
Unlike some listeners, I love a male voice reading these types of stories. Adam Paul's melodic tones lead to many of the aforementioned blushes.
I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
I love the new trilogy from Maya Banks. the people she creates make you feel thier desire, thier pain, and longing. this book was great with S&M and a love story, with the promise of more in this world I can't wait.

I loved the story, loved Mia and her strength, hated Gabe (and don't we love to hate the villain!!)
That Mia trusted Gabe even though it was tough to do and he misused it sometimes.
No I haven't
To be honest I could only tolerate about 10 minutes of this book. The narrator monotone and unemotional voice did me in immediately. There are way too many other great books available than to waste my time on this one. I have listen to several other Maya Banks book that were outstanding and very very enjoyable, however this one did not captivate at all.
I love Maya Banks, but didn't feel Adam Paul did the story justice. It sounded rushed and cheesy at times. Not sexy at all.
Hot, passion, sexy!,
50 shades, but this goes deeper then even 50 shades did
I have seen review were others didn't like him but I think he does a wonderful job!,
Loved the whole book! From page one to the end! Can not wait for the next books!
I love Maya Banks, don't get me wrong, however, I would like to see a series where the beautiful, hunky, stacked, sexy men who are the leads in her books are something other than brooding (although that has its own sex appeal) and determined not to have relationships men.
I loved the ending. I always love Ms. Banks' endings.
I would. However, it took a ways through the "listen" to get used to him. I think there are other men who could have done a much better job with the romance/sex inflections than Mr. Paul. I love Dick Hill's voice - don't know why he doesn't do more romance, but there are others as well. Maybe Mr. Paul could work on his "sexy" man voice.
