Rush Summary

In the first novel in the Breathless trilogy, a man is about to have his fantasies come true with a woman who was once forbidden fruit, and is now ripe for the picking...

When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.

Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once. So what if he’s fourteen years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

As Gabe pulls her into his provocative world, she realizes there’s a lot she doesn’t know about him or how exacting his demands can be. Their relationship is intense and obsessive, but as they cross the line from secret sexual odyssey to something deeper, their affair runs the risk of being exposed—and vulnerable to a betrayal far more intimate than either expected.

Ive read better romance books3 star

I thought this was going to be more romantic, less dominant. The dominance in the bedroom went over the top sometimes (but im not one to like a lot of bdsm) it just seemed odd for a woman seems shy to want to sign her life over to a very dominate man. If hes dominant he doesnt want a shy women. He has to make her feel brave first, then he’ll dominate her in the bedroom. it doesnt make sense. The dymamic seemed off. I did read all of it, but the beginning did not intrigue me, i was going to stop reading it because it was just her describing what everybody was thinking and feeling, not a lot of dialogue. It didnt pull at my heart strings after I finished reading it. There were no surprises, meaning that there was no anticipation, building up to find out this one secret(s). All the plots were all mundane. The author described the things as average. Such as she did not go in depth in a lot of parts of the book, instead she just explained it like any average person would. I dont think its worth the price they are selling it for. Sorry but this book was not executed well.35

Idk why a lot of people hated this book. I thought it was pretty good. It wasn’t anything similar to 50 shades. I think it was worth 2.9945


Could’ve been so much better3 star

I was excited when I first bought this book (at $.99, thank goodness), but now that I’ve finished it, I have mixed feelings about it. As exciting as the sex scenes were, I felt like there was so much lacking in character development and the story as a whole. I did not like the male lead, Gabe, at all. He was too entitled, controlling, and abusive for it not to raise any red flags big enough for Mia to just run out the door when everything began. I feel like it’s a good premise that could’ve been done so much better. As long as you’re into sexy stories that you know from the start are not to be taken too seriously, go ahead.35

Enjoyed reading Mia and Gabe’s story. Worth the the three dollars I payed. Really looking forward to reading the next two sequels. I saw a lot of reviews saying it was sad and heartbreaking—and that it was a copy of 50 shades of Grey. Those are total lies. This is not one bit remotely close it. I totally recommend reading this beautiful, fun and steamy story.45
