    1. Oh.God.I don't get it. I absolutely don't.I mean correct me if I'm wrong.Let's forget for a moment all the possessive crap that seems to come natural even before you've gotten to know someone. If you so much as like said someone, would you be jumping into a threesome with your best friend?And let as just say that ok, said best friend proposed it.The threesome has several stages.You can stop any moment now, pal.And yet, no. Guilt and jealousy don't seem to be enough.Ok, so here's another clue. Th [...]

    2. 4 to 4 1/2 starsI enjoyed this story much more than I did Rush, the first book in the series. Jace and Bethany, the hero and heroine, were strong, well developed and likable characters. The plot is what romance novels are made of–more fairytale than reality and highly addictive. I was completely riveted while reading this highly erotic, passionate, and engaging story.Crista's review captured my thoughts and feeling about this book perfectly. I couldn't have said it better. *ARC provided to Swe [...]

    3. DNFFever is the second book in the “Fifty-shades-esque” Breathless series by Maya Banks. The first book, Rush introduced us to three best friends, Gabe, Jace and Ash who are billionaires and the founders of HCM Global Resorts and Hotels. Jace’s character was portrayed as a kind, sensitive, fun/flirty man with a great love and protective nature to his sister, Mia. That Jace no longer exists in Fever, or at least in the first half of the book. Jace is now a controlling, dominant, hot-headed [...]

    4. Review posted at: Swept Away By Romance4 stars!I read this book during a flight, and I must say, between the man sitting next to me looking over my shoulder at what I was reading to the tingles this book gave my girly parts, I’m not sure it was the best decision I’ve ever made! This book is best read in private, preferably near a cold shower!My favorite movie in the whole world is Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. I don’t know what it is, but the Cinderella factor alway [...]

    5. 2.5 stars *Warning this is going to be ranty and spoilery. I’m too disappointed to censor right now.*Please don’t let me put you off reading this – I’m guessing I’m going to be in the minority with this one.I like Rush a lot. It wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read, but it was entertaining, and engaging. I LOVED Jace in Rush. After reading the teaser chapter for Fever, I was beyond excited to get my hands on it. I was SURE I was going to love the story.Nope. Not even a little.First, [...]

    6. DNF (last page 258): My general thought process while reading this book: grrrr, meh, should I just quit? Yeah, I need to quit. No! What if things finally turn around?!? Grrr…" It got to a point where even the dirty sex wasn't worth sticking around for. It REALLY irks me when authors try to piggyback off a genre/author that's blowing up and then add nothing more to it. Billionaire dom + meek heroine, who turns out to be a sub + penthouse setting + a group of close buddies = generic. It wouldn't [...]

    7. Review posted at: Swept Away By RomanceJoint Review: Steffi, Crista & Elizabeth- What worked -Elizabeth: I loved the depth of the characters, in particular Bethany and her background. I loved that she was quiet and out of her element, yet had a backbone and a delicate strength and dignity. Jace was dominant, no doubt, but most enjoyable for me was the way Bethany stripped away a lot of the artifice and melted his heart. I'm fascinated by the character of Jack, Bethany's stepbrother. I hope w [...]

    8. I loved Jace in Rush but now I'm IN love with him!After reading Rush, the first book in this Breathless trilogy, I wasn't all too impressed. I wasn't that big of a fan of Gabe and his relationship with Mia just was not my cup of tea. I guess all I was missing was the perfect man because I absolutely loved Jace's story!This book has absolutely nothing to do with RushWhere Rush was all about dominance and since-forever-crush and total obsession, this one comes a bit more intense and highlights the [...]

    9. This is one of those reads that kept me awake until 1:30am in order to finish it. I'm suffering the consequences today and yet, I regret nothing.I really enjoyed this novel. It was hot (incredibly so), it was steamy, and I liked the romance. Don't get me wrong, if this was real life I'd probably look at this couple in horror surrounding the rapid evolution and healthiness of their relationship. Luckily for me, this is not real life--this is fiction. Therefore, I have no qualms enjoying the story [...]

    10. WellI'm sorry to say but I just didn't enjoy this one as much as the first one in the series (Rush). I don't know exactly what it was, but I think it had to do with the heroine (Bethany), or should I say the hero's obsession with her--I just didn't get it. Here's this uber-successful alpha-male businessman, with a wild and kinky sex-life (into threesomes with his best friend/business partner Ash), and he becomes obsessed with this uneducated homeless waif. They have nothing in common, he's about [...]

    11. 3.5 StarsMeh. That is what I feel. Meh. After reading Rush, I actually pre-ordered this. I had high hopes. I was really excited. Could that be the issue? Honestly, I did love maybe 40% of this book. If Gabe was there, I was loving it. I didn't realize how much I liked Gabe until reading this. Bethany is a young girl, in her twenties, living on the streets. She doesn't have a home. She hasn't had a home in over four years. She is a beautiful girl, and has love for her brother, Jack. Jack is not g [...]

    12. 2.5 or 2.9999999I dont know why I ended up rating this book so low :/ I LOVED RUSHlet's first get that straightThis isn't a story that would match Gabe & Mia as a couple and yet I found myself constantly comparing and wanting "FEVER" to be a bit more romantic and emotional like the first instead of it being wholly BDSM based.The first half of the story was just a DRAG with him going on and on about how"I want to own you but don't ask me why " while she stuck to one phase THE WHOLE FREAKING B [...]

    13. 2* STARS!Plus:+ ???Minus:- NO TRUST- Insta-love/lust- Over posssive with jealousy- Super stalker- JASE IS SUPER CONTROL FREAK (Worse than G***)- BETHANY FRUSTRATED ME in so many ways. Independent isn't same with stupidity, woman!- Slow dragging ass pace. It keeps moving in circles.Overall: Such a disappointment. This book has power over me for my gloomy mood -_- so much negativity! 2 stars because I BARELY MADE IT ALIVE!

    14. Maya Banks gives a highly erotic ‘fairy tale’ in this second installment of her Breathless series which centers around the lives of three beautiful, sexy as sin men; Jace Crestwell, Ash McIntyre, and Gabe Hamilton. They’ve been best friends and very successful business partners for many years making their relationship more like family. This group of delicious testosterone are all easily lovable alpha males and the draw to the series. I haven’t read the first book, Rush, which featured Ga [...]

    15. 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 [...]

    16. Fever is the second book in the Breathless trilogy by Maya Banks. When I met Jace and Ash in the first book, Rush, I was highly curious about the woman who would break up this double duo in the bedroom. These two best friends find it highly erotic to be with the same woman at the same time. But now Jace has finally found a woman, who he has formed strong amorous feelings for, and he isn’t willing to share. From the moment Jace sees Bethany serving at his sister's engagement party, he was drawn [...]

    17. Phew! What an explosive last 6% of a book!! I might just add that there is not cliffie though!! (Thank goodness for that!) I am giving Fever 4.5 stars; but definitely that half a mark got added due to the major emotional scene towards the end of this at times emotional book. I will start off in saying that I loved this book way better than the first in the series, even though the heroine tended to annoy me at times. I loved Jace, but I knew I would from when I read book one.Out of Gabe,Jace, and [...]

    18. 2.5, maybe 3 starsFrom the other reviews, I'm in the minority here. I'm not gushing over this book. Yeah I really wanted to like this book, and it was a decent read. But it didn't GRAB me like Maya's and Gabe's story did in book 1. It's not a bad book it probably deserves a 3 star rating, because I *did* read it, and I *generally* liked it. I just didn't feel the chemistry between Bethany and Jace, despite his obsession with her. It really did seem too much like a cross between Pretty Woman and [...]

    19. This review & others also found on Red Hot BooksLet me preface my review by saying that I loved Ms. Banks' Sweet series. I think she's a talented writer and I have always enjoyed reading the relationships she creates. That being said, this book was hard to get through.This is the second book in the Breathless series, the story of Jace Crestwell and Bethany Willis. Jace is a self made millionaire who sees Bethany at his sister's engagement party from across the room and wants her immediately. [...]

    20. ********** 3 - 3.5 STARS **********The second book in Banks' Breathless trilogy was good, though not as good as the first one IMO. This time around we're given the story of Jace and Bethany, a down on her luck homeless woman swept up in an instant and electrifying romance with the billionnaire.I liked the pacing of this book and have to say that although it didn't wow me as much as the first, Maya Banks writes romance extremely well. It was easy to be caught up in it and I found myself finishing [...]

    21. Jace's story started out with a big BANG. Literally in every sense of the word, which I loved!PlotUber rich hotel developer, 38-year old Jace Crestwell, meets Bethany Willis at his sister's engagement party held inside his hotel. Bethany is one of the hired helpers. Jace and his best friend Ash have always shared their women, and when Ash propositions Bethany as their latest conquest, she agrees. But deep down Jace isn't comfortable with sharing. After the one night, Bethany bails, and Jace come [...]

    22. Haven't given anything a 1 star in a while. There were more things that annoyed me in this rather than entertain me. 1. Bethany is a 23 year old homeless girl who's been living on the streets for 4 years yet there is no mention whatsoever of her hygiene. How in the world does she keep herself clean? Showers? Grooming? Clothes? Considering the fact that she agrees to have sex with 2 men 2 hours after meeting them, yeah it was an issue for me. 2. Jace performs oral sex and has vaginal & anal s [...]

    23. This was an odd marriage of a controlling, bdsm and menage enthusiast billionaire tale with umCinderella. Some of the smut was hot as fuck, some started to get a bit repetitive, but for the most part the smut held it together. She's homeless and down on her luck but she catches the billionaire' s eye and within moments of poking around in her lady closet he's obsessed with her. He moves her in and buys her stuff and she's all wide eyed yet apparently unaffected by materialism because all she wan [...]

    24. RATING AROUND 3 - 3.5 STARS I'm feeling 50/50 about this one. I don't hate it, I don't love it either.Me while reading the book:Yep. That pretty much sums it up. First few pages were really interesting. But then as you go along, the story kinda drags you. The good thing about it is that our hero, Jace Crestwell, is one sexy beast!!! I love him. He's my favorite out of the 3 musketeers. He's sexy, uber alpha, domineering, possessive, sweet, loving, tender, passionate, a very crazy SOB but he is s [...]

    25. Ella acepta hacer un trío a cambio de comida y una cama para pasar la noche. El protagonista decide que aunque hasta el momento sólo hacía tríos con su amigo del alma y otra mujer random, a partir de esa noche sólo quiere estar él en exclusividad con esa mujer.Period.Esta novela esa basura.

    26. Fuck it. Five stars. This was amazing. Bethany is so cute! She had a horrible life :( until she met Jace :)It’s the first time I could understand the real meaning of this kind of relationship. They made me understand everything!“The kind of power you’re talking about isn’t about control. It isn’t about your submission. It isn’t about my dominance. It’s about emotional power. But baby, you have exactly that same power over me. When it comes to our relationship, you have far more pow [...]

    27. I enjoyed this book but not nearly as much as Rush. I didn't feel the chemistry between Jace and Bethany that I did with Gabe and Mia.When Jace meets Bethany it's love at first sight. They have a one-night stand (one night three-way?) with his friend Ash, with whom he has always shared women. Jace realizes immediately that he wants Bethany to himself. When he wakes up the next morning she's gone.Jace tracks Bethany down, but finds that she's homeless. He immediately rescues her, providing her wi [...]

    28. 3 1/2 starsI really liked that this was a character driven plot. Early on I thought things would go one way, but they didn't and it's a nice change to have a story go a different way than how I expected.Starting out I really liked the storyokay aside from the incredibly uncomfortable threesome, that is. And maybe it's my psych class that had me psychoanalyzing everything (especially b/c we're studying masochism and fetishism currently) but it was different in a not fun way. I don't really know h [...]

    29. 3.5 Intense, emotional and smutty stars!Book two in the Breathless series, this book features Jace, the second of three gorgeous, controlling Alphas who are best friends, millionaire business partners and who have always lived by the motto “play hard and live free”.Gabe has fallen in love but that doesn’t mean Jace and Ash are ready to follow him into a life of monogamy. But then everything changes for Jace when he first lays eyes on Bethany and he is drawn to her like he never has before. [...]
