Rush & Fever (The Breathless Trilogy) by Maya Banks

This scintillating and deliciously evocative trilogy is centered around three wealthy, successful best friends and business partners: Gabe Hamilton, Jace Crestwell, and Ash McIntyre. They work hard, play harder, and are used to getting everything they want, when they want it.

Book One: Rush
For Gabe Hamilton getting what he wants is complicated, because what he wants more than anything is Mia. The problem? Mia is Jace's little sister. Gabe has watched Mia from afar as she grew up and now that she is all grown up, he is determined to have her. Gabe has starred in Mia's fantasies for years and when she sees him at an opening for his latest hotel, Mia is instantly intrigued by Gabe and what he has to offer.

Gabe, having suffered a public and messy divorce, begins all of his relationships with a contract. A contract that gives him complete and utter control and Mia finds herself being sucked into Gabe's provocative world. Their secret relationship is consuming and obsessive, but as obsession begins to turn into something more, Gabe will have to face and overcome his demons in order to keep Mia, risking not only his friendships, his business, but also his heart.

Loved this book from beginning to end! If you are a fan of Fifty Shades you will love this series. Gabe is deliciously hot and there are plenty of steamy scenes. He is everything you want in a fantasy guy - rich, powerful, domineering and beautifully broken. I liked the character of Mia as well. Although she was supposed to be submissive, she wasn't afraid to speak her mind and set her own limits. I will warn you that a few of the scenes are a bit much, so if you have issues with bondage and the like, you might want to skip this one. For me this ranks up there with 50 and has earned the title of Guilty Pleasure.

Book Two: Fever
Jace and Ash have shared everything for years, including their women. However when Jace meets Bethany, he finds himself wanting her all to himself. Bethany is down on her luck and has been living on the streets for the past 4 years. She works odd jobs and often doesn't know where her next meal is coming from. When Ash offers her the opportunity to spend the night with himself and Jace, she jumps at the chance to escape reality, even if it is only temporary. From the beginning, there is an instant attraction and pull between Jace and Bethany. When Bethany disappears after spending a steamy night with Jace and Ash, Jace becomes determined to find her and make her his. Despite the love they feel for each other, they both have issues that threaten to unravel their relationship.

I loved Rush, but Fever was even more amazing. It was sexier, steamier, and I love the characters even more. So far this is a series that is only getting better and I have high expectations for book three. Jace is my favorite so far out of the three guys and I feel like the characters in this book had a lot more depth. The story was better developed and this was definitely a "full throttle" book from start to finish. I even found myself blushing while reading some of the scenes, as the raunchiness factor is definitely amped up in book. Another must read guilty pleasure!
