Terrible book. Poor character development and absolutely no romantic build between the characters. Both characters were weak and truly annoying. Sadly, this is a goldmine of a premise that was squandered by the writer. I've never read Maya Bank books before and I'm wary of reading her again.
There's a fine line between titillating and sexual and demeaning. The book tipped way over to demeaning.
Gabe wanted Mia for years just as she wanted him. When he finally decides to take that step, he makes her sign a contract to ensure that his public figure will not be compromised. Things between them heat up fast and as soon as Mia signs it, shes expected to be in his will. But what scares her the most is that she loves it. and she might not ever recover after a man like Gabe Hamilton.
He kissed her as though he were starved for her. Like he'd been held away from her and had finally broken free. It was the kind of kiss that lived only in her fantasies. No one had ever made her feel so..consumed.
The story was a little much for me since Im not very big on erotica. But since there was a lot of story to it, I still enjoyed reading about Gabe and Mia and how their relationship progressed. I wish I could have seen more emotions throughout the book and not just dirty, rough sex scenes that were getting boring very fast.
You can't control everything. You can't control how someone feels about you. Or what makes them tick. You can only control how you react, how you act, how you think and feel.
Best part of the book was definitely the ending. It was emotional, beautiful, and sweet. Something that the rest of the story lacked. I hope that second book in Breathless Trilogy will be better.
