The title certainly doesn’t fit this drawn out tale. I’m all for character development but the sub-plots in this tale distracted rather than added to the storyline. A mother who calls her son every other day to complain about his father is out of order. I guess Gabe’s selfishness was bred into him by his parents. Mia’s friends were nothing short of annoying. Their banter and behaviors were too high school. We gotta go to the club where I can not spend time with you since I miss you so much. Caroline was so out of order. Let me tell my good news to our friends.
This story would have read better if characters did not repeat themselves so often and the fat (sub-plots) from trimmed. However, I found the sex screens scorching. I loved that Gabe was not a minute man. He was an alpha with a soft side. I didn’t appreciate the author’s choice for Jace and Ash to walk in on such a private moment; but, fiction is fiction. At his age, it was unbelievable that Gabe would have allowed Jace such power. Hence, it was disappointing that the ending was more disturbing than climatic. Hell, I would have rather that Charles kidnapped Mia and Gabe had to rescue her. Jace could have found out about their relationship when he witnessed Gabe and Mia’s reunion as they kissed and professed their love to each other. All in all, I am most disappointed that I had already purchased the remaining books in the trilogy, prior to reading “Rush”.
As the story goes on, I couldn't understand how Mia could so easily accept some of the things Gabe did to her. The incident in Paris, for example. I mean WTF, how could she forgive him for that.
I forged on because I liked the other characters. Specifically Ash and Jace. I want to see where the story goes from here. Not the best romance series out there, but it's up to you.
Mia is shocked that Gabe wants to pursue her. She has had a crush on Gabe for as long as she can remember. He had definitely played some very hot roles in her dreams. Mia risks it all to capture Gabe. With Gabe she feels as if she is the only women in the world, he seduces her, arouses her, dominants her, commands her, and captivates her. Can Mia when his heart? Or will she get hers broken in the process.
Maya Banks is a literary master. The descriptions, the abundance of adjectives, makes for some HOT reading. The characters that she creates fascinates the reader with their duality. One moment Mia and be snarky, aggressive, stubborn as a mule, and daring. But when she is in Gabe's arms she transforms into submissive creature that lives and breathes to pleasure him. The challenges, transformations, and intensity in this story will leave you panting, squirming, moaning, and desperate. Once you start reading you too will be under Gabe's control. This is a book you will devour in one sitting!
I liked Gabe and Mia you could tell he truly wanted her all along (not just in a contract) but he had to get their own his own. There are things he does during the story that made me want to smack him. There relationship was also complicated by the fact that Gabe worked with Mia's brother they are best friends. There is some drama of course and things he should have done differently but I liked the book.
