Finally Burn and completely Breathless

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 Ash, it’s the woman who changes everything he’s ever known about dominance and desire…


When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side—extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Even the women he’s shared with his best friend, Jace. But Jace is involved with a woman he has no intention of sharing. And now even Gabe has settled into a relationship with a woman who gives him everything he needs, leaving Ash feeling restless and unfulfilled. Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

BurnAfter a long time of sharing women with Jace, and both of his friends settle down, Ash gets to fly solo, he meets Josie at a park, she is an artist and a free spirit, she works and lives on her own, for her art.

Like Gabe and Jace, Ash is dominant, controlling and over protector, but when everybody thinks him as a laid back kind of guy he is actually a tough guy, because of his crazy and awful family.

I think this relationship is the most mature of the three, first because Josie is older and she has more experience than the other girls and she also used to be in a BDSM relationship before Ash, so is the known factor. He has his dark side and will do anything to protect the people he loves and he consider his family.

Josie stands for herself, and she likes to feel that she can take care of her life, so when Ash hides from her a secret, she is willing to leave him; when she thinks she is on her own without friends, Mia and Bethany show her wrong, and they come to support their frieng. Girls Power!

Finally Maya, who is a great writer tied the three stories at the last part of Burn, a turn of event rise the tension and we could see that Gabe’s acts may affect the life of the six of them.

 Hope you like the books and enjoy them.

With Fever and Breathless

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 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.

FeverSo Jace is a totally Alpha male, obsessive over this girl (Bethany) from the first time he sees her at Mia and Gabe’s engagement party, she was working there; Jace always has shared his women with Ash, every time they wanted, they where into BDSM completely, but this time he didn’t want to share Bethany, and when he did, he was possessive of her, and in charge of every move, after a night with her and Ash he gets totally crazy looking for her all over the town. Bethany is homeless and she lives in shelters, finally after two weeks Jace found her and took her to his home, she is a complete submissive from beginning, he looks after her, he introduce her to his world of luxury and BDSM; she on the other hand has lived on the streets of New York for four years, and she has done many things to survive, she felt (all ways) for Jace too, there’s a lot of chemistry between them, the sex is mind blowing.

Jace starts controlling every step she takes, but he also introduces her to his family Mia, Gabe and Ash; and Mia invite her to a girls night out, well when that happened, she lets lose herself and gets to be more her, that night is the night when we get to know how the girls night out always ends, with some mini dress and fuck me shoes! And off course kinkier and mind blowing sex.

With Jace and Bethany we can see two completely different worlds come together and become one, with their ups and downs they get to know and understand each other. And finally Jace understands Gabe and his ways with his sister Mia, the need of protection, the need of more, the need of ownership, he gets in love at first sight and is forever.

Hope you like the books and enjoy.

A Rush that left me Breathless!

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.


This is my favorite story of the trilogy, I guess Gabe is the Alpha male, dominant, possessive, passionate and also with a lot of fears; Mia and Gabe start their relationship behind Jace back (Mia’s big brother and Gabe’s best friend and business partner), with a contract in between (You know, like the one in FSOG), who dictated the rules of their commitment and basically he does it to protect himself. He is handsome, has a turbulent past and he always has been secret in love with Mia, or at least he has desired her since she is all grown up, he has a pretty extreme tastes, at the first half of the book he is cold, emotionally close, powerful, but helpless when it comes to Mia; thanks to his fail marriage he has a lot of fears like betray, he feels a lot of things for Mia that he never had before and that scare him, he wanted a short term relationship with her, but all that change when he gets to know her, and see firsthand who she really is, she puts his world upside down, but thanks to his ex-wife and to prove her wrong he makes a mistake a huge one and painful, more for Mia than for him.

After that he gets more protective of her and when they decided that is time for everybody to know about them, happens the unexpected… Just going to tell is really uncomfortable, (you know like when your brother walks in a room, where you are all tied up, in your hands and knees, being spank… Awkward!) That jeopardy his relationship with Jace.

And for Mia, well Gabe was her crush since she remembers, so she accepted the contract to be with him, she likes him, they are fourteen years age difference, thing that they don’t really care. She was under the guidance of her brother Jace all her life, after their parents died, she is to mature for her age, and despite of her brother she works on her own and lives her life, until Gabe gets in it.

The focal point in the book is the Dom-Sub relationship; there is intense and kinky sex all the way… and I think you will enjoy it J I also like that you get to see both POV: Gabe’s and Mia’s.

Hope you like the books and enjoy.

When I started reading this trilogy I had a lot of expectation, cause a friend of mine recommended it, she was so enthusiastic about it, crazy-ish too, she keep talking and talking about these three amazing guys, so I said , “mmm let me try it”

Let me tell you that from page one I got caught…

But, who is Maya Banks? MayaBanks02_bioShe is an American bestselling author of erotic romance, romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and Scottish historical romance. She now lives in Texas with her husband and three children.

The trilogy follows three best friends: Gabe Hamilton (Rush), Jace Crestwell (Fever) and Ash McIntyre (Burn) who are billionaires, business partners, and like to dominate in the boardroom and in the bedroom.
