Series: Breathless Trilogy (Book 2)
Author: Maya Banks
Genre: Erotic Romance
Jace, Ash, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Jace, it’s a woman whose allure takes him 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.
I really enjoyed the first book, Rush, but I loved this book even more.
Maya Banks writes very explicit, very graphic sexuality and She writes it very well. I love how authors that include a lot of sex scenes yet somehow manage to keep them fresh. Maya is one of those writers. The sex stays sexy while she crafts a story that is also engaging, emotionally captivating, and worth reading.
Jace is a force to be reckoned with. He’s good-looking to the extreme, he’s wealthy…as in filthy rich, and he likes control in all aspects of his life. He doesn’t just want control…he craves it needs it. For years most of his sexual proclivities have included Ménage à Trois with his best friend and business partner Ash. No MM…they’re all about sharing the woman…fulfilling her pleasure. That is until Bethany. I loved Jace…he can be broody, and go off without thinking but he’s a good guy and sexy as hell.
Bethany is unlike any woman who Jace has ever encountered. She brings out feelings in him that he didn’t think he was capable of…jealousy, protectiveness, possessiveness, and the desire for something more. She also comes with a past and circumstances that make her feel unworthy of Jace. The relationship between Jace and Bethany threatens the deep seated and wonderful friendship between Jace and Ash. Not for the reasons you might guess though. Y’all know that it’s not the chick in a story that rocks my world. It is important tho for me to like the female lead. I liked Bethany a lot. I was frustrated with her on several occasions, but bottom line…I wanted her and Jace together as a couple, and I wanted it badly.
Fever is a complex story that I didn’t want to put down. It’s a story that combines romance, sex, family, friendship and so much more. It has angst sprinkled throughout, but it’s short-lived which is something I personally prefer. It’s a story about characters who discover things about themselves they didn’t know, and who finally let go of things about themselves they should never have held onto.
It’s a book that I highly recommend if you love a great romance, and well written erotica.
