I guess I should have known not to go there with this book because I was bothered by the first book. But I wanted to give the author and the series the benefit of the doubt, especially since there were so many positive reviews. But this was not a "love" story I could get into. I was actually disgusted and put it down as soon as the threesome started. I honestly thought Jace was going to stop it because he had feelings for her and had reservations about sharing her with his best friend, Ash. But apparently, one can suck off one's best friend and then fall in love....? Sorry, but my imagination just cannot stretch that far and then snap back to happily ever after. Once the threesome started and I realized where this was going, I shut off my e-reader and promptly returned it for a refund. Don't get me wrong, I love to read, I love sex, a love a good love story with great sex scenes...but I guess I am not as "evolved" as some to think of this as a good premise for a "love" story. I honestly cannot offer much as far as an opinion goes for the rest of the book. As you can see, I didn't get far at all. Mia's story (in Rush, Book 1) with the 3 business men was disturbing enough but I muddled through and finished the book. And though I found that scene and her forgiveness of it all disturbing, I still finished it. But I guess I am ending it there with Ms. Banks. This is nothing against the writer. It seems there are plenty of people who like this kind of story, but I am definitely not one of them. At the end of the day, I prefer a love story that doesn't start off with 'shy beautiful girl' sucking off her future love interest's best friend while he watches and partakes in the "fun". And then what? They all sit around the dinner table for a family gathering?? Next!

First of all, let me start with my biggest complaint about the book....WHAT MEN OUT OF A COLLEGE DORM TALK THE WAY THESE 3 GUYS DO? Seriously, I felt like this author went to a college dorm and listened to the lingo and then put that as the dialogue. It is completely ridiculous. And more so, once you consider that they are supposed to be billionaires and are 38 yrs old!! Completely ridiculous. I dont even know normal 25yr old who speak like that. The dialogue was complete garbage.

Second, if I ever read the word "baby" one more time, I will cheerfully burn this book. Surely, Maya Banks, you must be familiar with Thesaurus to atleast find other similar endearments. The total abuse of certain words or phrases over and over again was galling, to say the least.

Third, can there be a more UNBELIEVABLE plot? Seriously!! I'm willing to buy a lot of stories (even unorthodox romance types), but this storyline was a complete joke. In what world would these two meet and have anything in common? How does someone who has lived on the streets not question the motives of all these good things coming out of nowhere? How do you not even at least have a wayward thought that it could be a pimp? How does someone who has lived in the streets of NYC for 4 YEARS not have an ounce of a backbone....or is so trusting??

Ugh, my complaints about this book are too many. I bought most of the storyline until chapter 5 and then it just became an absurd joke. The plot is underdeveloped, the story line is extremely far-fetched, the writing is lackluster, the emotional connection to the characters is missing and the ridiculous repetetiveness over & over again should be considered cruel & unusual punishment.

This book deserves to be pulled from the shelves. BDSM & sex scenes does not a novel make. This is a prime example of that.

Let me start out by saying that I love Maya Banks. I automatically preordered all three books in the series. I enjoyed the 1st book and was looking forward to reading this one. I've been trying to get through it for over a week but, it's so awful I can't make myself finish it. Why Maya? Why would you think we want to read Another
her version of 50 Shades of Grey? And this is even worse- putting a homeless women in this story, what we're you thinking? This book is disturbing, not exciting, or believable for that matter. Unfortunately, Maya Banks is no longer on my "automatic buy" list.

It's now Sept 2, 5 months later, and I still read everyday but I still haven't finished this book. It bothers me that it's there on my kindle 1/2 read, but I still can't bring myself to finish it.

This book is so beyond belief, its truly ridiculous (and i dont mean in a good way). Mr Gorgeous Billionaire instantly falls head over heels for a starving, homeless ex drug addict who has had threesomes and indiscriminate sex with strangers and numerous partners, for money. And the Author expects us to believe (despite all the kinky sex and drugs and possible prostitution in her past) that this heroine is actually sweet and innocent, and that nothing in her dark past is actually her fault or her responsibility. She's just endlessly a victim. (Although the Author also tells us this girl is supposedly very intelligent. What!? yeah, right. A homeless hooker junkie). The hero rescues her and places her in a palatial environment in the lap of luxury- yet she's constantly threatening to leave him and go back to starving in the streets. Yeah right! Never in a million years (or a billion years!) would a couple like this ever get together in the first place. They have absolutely nothing in common, and there is no effort by the Author to develop their relationship. On top of being ridiculously, absurdly, laughably unrealistic- it was also quite boring and repetitive. I regret the money l wasted buying this rubbish, and the time l wasted reading it.
