Review: Fever (Breathless #2) by Maya Banks


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.


5 star review!

This is the sequel to Rush and it is just as incredible. I love the way each book portrays a different character from the trio of best friends. First we had Gabe and now it is Jace’s turn. I have to admit that I think Jace is my favourite of the three. He’s just so dark and dangerous; it’s sexy!

“Be warned. I’m fighting for you and I have no intention of losing.”

This book begins during Gabe and Mia’s engagement party and I am so excited that they are together. During the engagement party, Jace keeps noticing Bethany from across the room as she cleans up after the guests. He instantly knows that she is special and he wants her but if you’ve read Rush then you’ll know of Jace and Ash’s ‘extra-curicular’ activities, this isn’t exactly the way he wants to approach Bethany. Ash catches on to the female that has grabbed Jace’s attention and propositions her to spend the night with them.

Bethany is homeless. The only person she has in her life is her foster brother Jack, who she has great loyalty towards. Hen she is propositioned by Ash, she immediately agrees because of the connection with Jace. She has nowhere to sleep for the night and no food. She knows that if she says yes then she will have a warm bed and food for the night. It breaks my heart to think that she is all alone in the world at 23 years old and is just trying to get by.

“She had nothing except the hope of the next day being better than the last.”

Jace doesn’t know that Bethany is homeless, and is irritated when he wakes up in the morning and she is gone. He searches the city for her and is directed to a women’s shelter where he asks to be contacted if she shows up. Though when she does seek shelter there, she is not in good shape at all as her foster brother puts her in danger by owing money to the wrong people. When Jace gets to her he immediately takes her under his wing and tries to provide her with a better live then the one she has been handed.

“She wasn’t sure she’d ever feel warm again.”

Throughout their relationship, they deal with Bethany’s past and insecurities, Jace’s trust issues towards Bethany and a traumatic incident that makes Jace question what is more important in life. This book will make you happy, sad and it’ll make your heart swoon with Jace’s affection towards Bethany. It is definitely a worthy sequel in a fantastic series.

“The truth is I’m not letting you go.”
