In the second novel in the Breathless trilogy, a woman's undeniable allure takes a dominant man completely by surprise...
Jace Crestwell, Ash McIntyre, and Gabe Hamilton have been best friends and successful business partners for years. They’re powerful, they’re imposing, they’re irresistibly sexy, and Jace and Ash share everything—including their women.
When they meet Bethany, Jace begins to feel things he’s never experienced before: jealousy, and a powerful obsession that threatens him, overwhelms him—and excites him beyond control.
Jace isn’t sharing Bethany—with anyone. He’s determined to be the only man in her life, and it’s jeopardizing a lifelong friendship with Ash. Bethany will be his and his alone. Even if it means turning his back on his best friend.
Seriously? Is this what people like? I preferred the first book honestly this was too much in all ways. Menages are not for me definitely but Bethany was just sooooooooo submissive and naive and stupid i just couldnt. No way.15
I enjoyed Gabes story better. I just couldn’t with Bethany, she was too submissive and too naive for me.25
Bethany got on my nerves a little bit. I felt like majority of the time she was crying. I understand she had a difficult life and maybe had a little low self esteem, but I felt like the crying was so necessary. I like the plot though I thought it was really good and jace was sweet at times. The sex scenes were pretty hot better than the first book. I think it’s worth the price to read. Hopefully the last book is good.35
Was looking forward to this book after Rush, but it was so boring. The dialogue made me want to pull my hair out. The story line seemed to drag on and I couldn’t even finish the book.25
I enjoyed the first book in this series quite a bit so I was looking forward to continuing on. Unfortunately this hugely disappointed. I only finished it because I paid for it. I just could not get into these characters. They both lacked substance and the storyline was really weak. Jace is the typical dominant gozillionaire male, and despite the author's efforts to romanticize him, she fails to create enough depth to his character and he just comes across as selfish and ignorant. As for Bethany, she is supposed to be so strong and tough from surviving on the streets, but ultimately she struck me as a weakling. Her inability to chin up and have a little pride made her almost pathetic. Both characters were just too flat and one dimensional for my taste. And the steamy stuff didn't make up for it either. The scenes were redundant and seemingly formulaic. So disappointed. Seemed like this was written by someone else altogether versus the first book in the series.15
The storyline does vary from the "rich control freak/doe eyed beauty" routine. That being said, it's a bit of a stretch. I mean seriously. Doesn't the homeless girl need a shower before hoping into bed with two rich and handsome hunks? The lack of pronoun usage gets really irritating and the constant repetition of how close the guys were. We get it!35
Not so good, sorry.....I read about two books a week, only felt the need to finish it because I paid for it. Ms. Banks needs to get a stronger story line, add some humor. Some of her other novels are better reads. Not sure if I'm gonna read the next one in the series.DW25
the first book was acceptable... (3 stars) barely.... I just find it annoying that there isn't much dialogue. she's mainly retelling every single OBVIOUS thing after every person speaks. like shut up!! let them talk. it's obvious we know what they're thinking, how they're feeling. it's written on every single page how they feel, and it's never a different feeling!! I've heard Maya is a very good author... maybe I just grabbed the wrong series, and she rushed it or something. but I honestly only continue to read this book because I wasted my money on it.... and because I'm curious. even though it's pretty flat out stupid, I'm still so curious lol. don't get me wrong, I'm a SUCKER for love stories (all I read actually). Jace and Bethany's story is nice, just could've been told better. more dialogue, less explaining.25
