Title: Rush
Series: Breathless, #1
Author: Maya Banks
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

Gabe, Jace, and Ash: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Gabe, it’s making one particular fantasy come true with a woman who was forbidden fruit. Now she’s 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, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’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.

When I first started reading Rush, I thought I was reading a Fifty Shades Of Grey remake. But as I continued the story, I realized how wrong I was, this book was SO much better than Fifty Shades, not that that's saying a whole lot in my opinion. Anyways, I really enjoyed this book. 

Mia, was a wonderful character. She has always had a crush on Gabe, and when she finally got the opportunity to be with him she took it. She KNEW that there were things that she had done before but she wanted to try them with him. She didn't make a huge fuss about him being a control freak or try to change who he was, she embraced it and trusted him completely. It was very refreshing to see a heroine like this, and I truly think Mia is now one of my favorite heroine's of all time. 
She also knew the score when it came to Gabe. She knew that he wasn't into a long term relationship and she also knew that if she fell in love with him that he probably wouldn't love her. So she wasn't a whiny female who was constantly thinking they would have more. She was awesome. 

Gabe was a really awesome hero as well. I think he screwed up a lot when it came to Mia, but he also did his best to make it up to her. He was a control freak that wasn't afraid to be a control freak. And it wasn't because he had some messed up child hood it was just something he liked, so to me that made the book that much better. 

Overall the story was very good, and I love the way this author writes. I highly recommend this book!
