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.

    "LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!!"

    I really enjoyed this book. Finished it in 1 day! I loved that both characters didn't have crazy traumatized pasts and they just like what they like and it's not because of something that happened to them. It was a sweet story with very little drama like the rest of the books in this genre lately. Adam Paul did a good job. Can't wait to listen to Ash & Jace's stories!! Maya Banks is awesome as always!!!

    "A domineering male story"
    Was Rush worth the listening time?

    I managed to get a quarter of the way through before I relented and gave up. There wasn't even a good romantic lead up to the affair, very sterile indeed. I don't know if it was trying to be a fifty shades of grey or not, but it was more robotic than fluent. Even the sex scenes were part of a job description. I didn't finish it so can't comment on the rest of the story

    "Disgusting! Won't read this author again."
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Adam Paul?

    Not under any circumstances


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Get rid of the disgusting depraved slave sex descriptions and male character that was truly not likeable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Paul?

    No change of narrator would make this book any better


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

    No, not that I could find. The more I listened, the worse it got.

    "Appalling Story"

    I'm always looking for a good erotic romance but this was not it. There was NO romance. It made my skin crawl to listen to him telling her when to wear undies and when she forgot, he beat her. He claimed that he cared about her but treated her like a piece of crap. A little dom/sub activity is great when it is for the enjoyment but he controlled every aspect of her life. What was worse, was that she allowed him to treat her that way. I believe that she was a college grad, she was beautiful. it was just sickening that her self esteem could be that bad. At least when Christian beat Ana to punish her, she walked away. Sorry, but it was just awful for me to listen to. Not wasting my money on the next 2 books in this series.

    Story
    "Don't like book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    the author could have gotten her own idea of a story, this was too much like 50 Shades of Grey


    What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

    That is was exactly like 50 Shades of Grey but different people and different situation


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not make it so alike


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Copy cat!


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back for this.

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

    Needs a better story line, as well as it was incredibly awkward hearing someone else read the strange erotic lines.


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not include the near rape scene and have less awkward vocabulary during erotic scenes.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Adam Paul?

    Unsure

    "Loved this book"

    I love Maya Banks and she didn't disappoint in this first book of a new series. She writes books that grab you from the first page and keep you hooked till the end. I didn't want this book to end and can't wait to start the next one. You will fall in love with Gabe and Mia will definitely be reading this book again in the future.
    Warning this is for mature audiences 18 and older
