How steamy is it? Sizzling

Publisher's Summary

Number-one USA Today and New York Times best-selling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and sizzling Slow Burn series with this fourth book - a mesmerizingly sexy tale of a strong, brilliant woman who encounters the one man who makes her lose all control.

Eliza Cummings fought free of a monster who terrorized her when she was an innocent teenager and helped put him away for good. She took a job with Devereaux Security Services and devoted every hour to taking down the very thing she'd nearly become. No one, not even those closest to her, know her darkest shameful secrets. But now the killer has been set free on a legal loophole, and it's only a matter of time before he comes for her. Eliza's only choice is to run and lead the monster away from the people she loves.

Wade Sterling has always lived by his own rules, a law unto himself who answers to no one. He's never professed to be a good man, and he's definitely not hero material. Wade never allows anyone close enough to see the man behind the impenetrable mask - but one woman threatens his carefully leashed control. He took a bullet for her, and the result was more than a piece of metal entrenched in his skin. She was under his skin, and nothing he did rid himself of the woman with the courage of a warrior and who thinks nothing of putting her life before others'.

But when Wade sees a panicked and haunted Eliza, he knows something is very wrong, because the fool woman has never been afraid of anything. And when she tries to run, the primal beast barely lurking beneath his deceptively polished façade erupts in a rage. She may not know it, but she belongs to him. This time Eliza isn't going to play the protector. She is damn well going to be the protected. And as long as Wade breathes, no one will ever hurt what is his.

disappointing

I struggled to finish this book. The premise had me expecting a strong woman, but she ended up turning into a damsel in distress, with too much guilt and self pity. I did a lot of skipping forward to get past all her self pitying thoughts, just so I could get to the actual storyline moving forward. The author's KGI series is much better.

Cheesy but love it

The narrator makes the book. I imagine he laughs after every cheesy, lovey-dovey, kissy- kissy craziness. I find it entertaining. I expect because that is the type of book in the series. Maya has other books that are different, more gritty and she is versatile that way which makes me enjoy all her books.

read every book she writes.

Maya Banks combines suspense, thrills and hot sex in everyone of her books. Wade and Eliza are steamy, once they get together.

Perfection!

I enjoyed this audiobook so much that I stayed up quite a few nights listening to this series. The narrator, Jeffrey Kafer did a wonderful job of bringing the story and characters to life.

I tried to listen twice, but couldn't!

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

1st the narrator, 2nd the story it' kept moving back to the past and I have most of the collection. It's as if it was reaping what I've already heard it was boring.

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

Honestly don't know . Maya was great on the series.

How could the performance have been better?

no clue, just couldn't finish it. It didn't capture me at all

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from With Every Breath?

none

Any additional comments?

Martyrdom on Steroids....

This book really annoyed me. I generally enjoy Maya Banks books, but this one was just one long, boring martyr-fest. The majority of the book was Eliza repeating over and over and over how what a worthless monster and undeserving of love, friends and life in general because of something that happened to her as a naive 16 year old. And the love story...well you went from snark, snide, sniping at one another to "your it for me, the love of my life." Like, literally from almost one moment to the next. And don't even get me started on the caveman, chest beating, your my woman and you'll do as I say crap. Yikes. Best advice, give this one a pass and save your credit.

Repeat of Emotion


Good narrator but weak story - the same emotions felt by the characters kept getting repeated over and over again.

Disappointed

It saddens me that I had to rate a Maya Banks novel so low, but unfortunately, this just didn't do it for me.

First, the narration was too face paced. It felt rushed and like every moment was intense. Life has it's slow and thoughtful moments too, and I didn't get that at all. Especially speaking as the male character - it was always forceful and domineering when there should be moments of softness and tenderness. Not to mention the rushed and almost clinical way the intimate moments were narrated.

Then there was the inner monologues that felt like they just dragged on. Not only that, but the repetitiveness of both characters. They kept saying the same things, over and over and over again. In all honesty, the first half of the book - nothing happened. What could have taken two, maybe three chapters took half the book. It wasn't until the second half where things actually started moving along.

Touching on repetitiveness - the mutual profession of how much they love the other was super cheesy and I'm pretty sure the word 'love' was said every third word for a solid five minutes. I rolled my eyes pretty hard, I thought they'd get stuck.

I hadn't read the previous novels before this one, and to be honest, it's not piqued my interest to continue. I won't continue this series, but I do hope my next Maya Banks novel is a bigger improvement.
