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 Audible!
Adam Paul is my FAVORITE narrator! I wish he had more books he has done. He is so very talented. Yeah, Adam Paul is all that...
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Before purchasing a book i like to read the reviews of others. I found quite a few that are to busy comparing this book to 50 Shades and I think that it is narrow minded of some. After listing to this wonderful book i can't wait to listen to the next. Maya Banks has done a great job with the story and i also enjoyed Adam Paul's narration. With so many of these sexy sort of books out there these day's it is a listening feast for me. I love all the authors as individuals. It is plain to see by the description one reads before buying a book what sort of story it is going to be. If you can't handle the Heat - Stay away from the fire...
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
After reading so many reviews i was a bit hesitant to buy it. But i took a chance and it turned out.... hmmm okay. I already knew what i was in for i think that's why i just went with it. No disappointment, cause i didn't expect anything more than what it had to offer.
if you're looking for 50 shades material? Maybe it resembles some.. with all the billionaire dom and mild bdsm plays.. but if you're looking for christian grey material, i don't think this fit the bill so much. Whatever incorporated in 50, it turned out to be a bit too extreme and debased here. The hero was just a f*cked up character. There was no dramatic childhood or explanation to how he became the way he was either... in plain writing he was just naturally f*cked up and selfish. Not really likable.
It wasn't a bad read though... just readable.
Yes. This story is intense and yes it does have moments that are quite disturbing but it is revealing.
When Gabe realized the depth of love he actually has for Mia, and Mia's determination to love him through himself.
He did a great job portraying the characters and events.
Anything worth having is worth fighting for.
This is not a romance. It was just erotic sadistic sex. There is absolutely no story whatsoever. I have never been so very disappointed in a book. It made me sick! It is a display of abuse and dysfunction. I so wish I would have listened to the other reviews and not wasted my time and money on this.
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
