Book Review: Fever By Maya Banks

Breathless #2

By: Maya Banks

Published: April 2, 2013

Attention: This book may not appeal to all readers.

FEVER is the 2nd in Maya Bank's Breathless Trilogy telling the stories of three powerful, rich, and demanding businessmen in New York City.  Gabe, Jace and Ash are used to getting what they want in business and in relationships. The first in the series, RUSH tells the story of Gabe and his relationship with Jace's sister, Mia.  For my review of RUSH, click HERE.

In FEVER, the story focuses on Jace.  Jace, like Gabe and Ash, thrives on power and control.  He is used to sharing everything with his business partner and best friend, Ash, including the women they meet.  Until he meets Bethany.  Bethany changes everything for Jace and becomes his new obsession.  But, Bethany has a past and is afraid if Jace finds out, everything between them will be changed forever.

Even though this genre isn't my favorite type of book to read, I was quickly wrapped up in the story. Bethany's past and current struggles make her a very likable character and one you want to root for. Her story with Jace is very much a Pretty Woman/Cinderella story.  The author's descriptions of Bethany's appearance and demeanor allowed the reader to capture the true essence of Bethany and how this whirlwind romance affected her. The twist at the end of the novel was a nice surprise and only reinforced how much you were hoping that Bethany would wind up with her very own fairy tale.

If you are wrapped up in the erotic romance genre, this series will not disappoint.  The third, BURN, comes out Tuesday, August 6th and focuses on Ash.  Stay tuned to a review on the final in the Breathless series coming up soon.

Thanks to Penguin for sending me a copy of this novel for review.  This review is my honest opinion.  I was not compensated in any other way for this review.

I love this trilogy. Each book can stand alone but fit together perfectly. Well written. I laughed , cried and cheered a must read.
I even spent the extra to get them in paper back so I would have them if my ereader broke.
