Synopsis

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.

I couldn't get enough of this book. The story line was organized and well written. Banks kept me wanting to read more. I can't remember if there were any mistakes and that was astonishing. I hate reading books filled with errors. It takes my attention away from the story and I begin feeling like a teacher correcting the students mistakes. So many great stories with many errors. Not this one. I absolutely loved the characters. This was a great read. Can't wait to read the next two books.

Maya Banks has done it again, another steaming hot, sexy read. Maya Banks has started this series with a bang, Gabe is the sexy best friend to Mia's brother, Jace. Since Mia was a teenager she has lusted after Gabe, but to Gabe she was just his best friend's little sister, she was forbidden fruit. This read was addicting, Gabe and Mia stuck it all out, their realtionship lasted through disapproval from Jace, whose betrayal was far more unexpected than ther realised. Maya once again wrote a masterpiece.

A well written story. This is the first installment of the trilogy. Can be read alone, but would recommend reading the whole series. Gabe's story is truly beautiful. Mrs Banks has caught the readers attention in not degrading the BDSM community. Gabe being a Dom, is written as an emotional character who feels for another. There are many books out there containing BDSM and can be tacky. This is a well thought out book and the continuing trilogy is just as well written. I personally recommend this series and any other ebook written by Maya Banks.

The first book in the series. If you enjoyed 50 Shades of Grey, you should enjoy this book and the following books. Dominant rich man falls for innocent young lady and all the problems they face before love conquers all. Characters somewhat believable however the coldness of Gabel does not always make him endearing to the reader. Overall, give the book a read, you should enjoy it and want to read the follow on books.

Gabe & Mia's story was something else. Talk about someone making a mistake, Gabe's made a few. Mia has loved him for yrs & he had feelings for her too but he went about his the wrong way. A contract to work for him & be his toy is what he offers, she accepts thinking that she can bring him around to see her more than Jace's little sister. Things go wrong she gets hurt & they're both miserable. I love Maya Banks's stories they are amazing.

SM is a personality disorder. Psychiatric prob. However, the characte being SM isnot being SM ENOUGH. It has to the dark, twisted, gut wrenching psychotic behaviour.. Its either being SM or ROMANTIC. But in thiis case its just GROSS!!! Plus, being a succesful bussinessman you dont mess withur bussiness partner. How ridiculous.. The girl potrayed as strong but never fought for herself..
