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.

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.
I was not a fan of the narration. I liked the story and look forward to the rest of the trilogy, but will be reading it on my Kindle instead of listening to the audiobook.
Absolutely loved it. My immediate thoughts after the first chapter was “great..... another attempt to re-write Fifty Shades of Gray.” In the end, I was totally wrong, I laughed, got angry, was repulsed, cried and talked to the characters as if they were real people. The hero (Gabe) and heroine (Mia) have known each other for years. Gabe is scarred by his ex-wife and vows he would never get involved in a relationship without protecting himself. Mia has always had a girlish crush on Gabe, never knowing his special likeness for her. Now Mia is all grown up, and plans to make a surprise appearance to her brother’s hotel grand opening ....... and there it begins. Very happy ending, I only wish there was an epilogue to follow.
I enjoyed 50 shades of Grey, however this book I found to be too crude and not my style. The main character was self centered and came accross as a jerk. Did not enjoy the main male character, Gabe. I actually began to dislike him as the story went on.
Someone whom hasn't read Fifty Shades might enjoy this book. There are a lot of character (and contract) similarities.
If each time I pick up a smutty romance novel there are contracts, and the women don't eat, then YeP, quite possibly. I don't get the references; if you get naughty you never eat? Hmmm.
I think I'm switching to something by Steven King ;o
It's a female telling the story with a female author, but Adam Paul narrating. It doesn't add to experience.
I won't finish it so I couldn't tell if there were any redeeming qualities.
No, it was good but once was enough. I want to listen to the others in the series.
Eva - A woman who had been babied all of her life who found her voice and strength.
His range with the different characters.
Cry a little at the end.
It would be interesting to know which came first - this or 50 Shades. VERY similar on a lot of levels. But still an enjoyable listen. Just be careful listening at work *wink.
My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
WOW!!!!! I loved this book! The characters were strong and fierce! The story was great and kept moving at a good pace. Kept me interested in the book from start to finish. The narrator (Adam Paul) was wonderful!!!! He brought the characters to life.
Gabe's character is smart, good looking, powerful and rich. He doesn't apologize for who or what he is. Mia is his best friend Jace's little sister. He helped Jace raise her after the death of her parents when she was young. Mia has wanted him for a long time and he's wanted her too, but the 14 year age difference was standing in Gabe's way. Until now!
Hot, Hot, Hot! I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
