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.

“God, you have a beautiful laugh, and your smile. Jesus, it knocks the breath out of me.” 

The title of the second book is equally as appropriate as the first one. This book is hot right from the very first chapter. The story focuses on Jace, Mia’s brother, this time. He and their other friend Ash are notorious for ‘sharing’ women. In fact those are pretty much the only relationships they have with women. Enter Bethany, a beautiful yet very timid woman. Jace is instantly drawn to her. Of course Ash is there so….. I’ll let you read that part for yourself. However Jace feels much differently about Bethany than their usual conquests. He wants her. All of her. All to himself. But it’s not that simple. Bethany has a past and she certainly does not fit into Jace’s world of wealth and high class living. And then there is the problem of Ash. He doesn’t want Bethany for himself but can’t understand why Jace does. 

“Words are just words. The evidence is in how you act, how you react.” 

This is really a typical Cinderella story just with a lot of sex added. A lot. Jace wants to rescue Bethany. Not because he feels sorry for her, just because he wants her. Is this story unrealistic? Of course it is. That’s why it’s great. If I want reality I’ll watch the evening news. What girl wouldn’t want some smoking hot, extremely wealthy man to come and save her? The only thing I have found a little hard to get into with this series is Ms. Banks fascination with a certain sex act that really is not my cup of tea. (No spoilers here, you will know exactly what I’m talking about)

“ “You have more power, more control than you could possibly imagine. My heart is in your hands. That’s not bullshit. I’m not saying stuff I think you want to hear in order to manipulate you. I can’t be any more honest than this. I’m yours, baby. I’m putting it out there. My heart, my soul, it all belongs to you.” 

There are also some tidbits of Gabe and Mias story mixed in with this story. This is a trilogy and I am hoping that everything gets tied together in the third book. I can’t say that I liked this one more or less than Rush because it really is its own story. 

This is a great book to read on a cold or rainy day to heat things up. I recommend some kind of cinnamon alcohol to go with. Perhaps Goldschlager or cinnamon vodka mixed with your choice of mixer. 

4 stars and my choice is always vodka! Enjoy!
