Synopsis

Ash, Jace, and Gabe: 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.

I absolutely ADORED Burn! I knew that Ash’s would be my favorite...I just knew that there was more beneath the surface. God, I love it when I’m right!! Even though he and Josie’s relationship developed quickly, it worked. I loved them together.

As Ash and Josie continue to work on their very fragile relationship, old ghosts come back to haunt the guys and their women. I did not see this one coming. And what happens to rectify the situation…WOW! I can say no more! Read the book!

These three are the sexiest billionaires in romanceland for me. I like their loyalty to one another and how they welcome each other’s mate as they come along.

This book was a great conclusion to the trilogy and it neatly tied up any loose ends. I’m sad that there won’t be any more because I loved all three books and the characters, but Maya did a great job of leaving you satisfied.

The emotional journey these two embark on is one of the best ones I think she has ever written. It fully engages the reader in the journey Ash and Josie take, from the moment they meet to the last page of the book.

Ash is very a intense, demanding, protective and very sweet man. And Josie is the perfect mix of submissive yet witty and fiery enough to keep Ash on his toes.

Ash has more layers than an Alaskan winter, ladies, and it was a pleasure watching his story unfold.

The Breathless trilogy certainly leaves readers gasping for air… with the slow Burn of things heating up, Ms. Banks surely is a master in the art of erotic romance. Can’t wait to see what new things she has up her sleeve!

What I liked so much about this book is that yes Ash goes overboard with Josie but he still treats her like an adult and a smart person who can make her own decisions. He never treats her like a child and he only does things because he loves her...

I liked the way Ash had a dark side and used it when he needed to protect the ones he loves. I also enjoyed that Ash’s sister Brittany was written into the story.

I recommend this book and series to anyone who likes billionaire dominant men who take over a woman’s world. They take control and love deeply, but completely expect you to give them the world.

I was also really happy to see a much more emotionally stable relationship in this one. Things weren’t high-drama, like in Fever, but instead it had the right amount of conflict and suspense.
