Rush is a romance novel with a difference, a little bit more spanky with your hanky panky than your average Mills and Boon, but there is also more of a plot and real character development than you get with a lot of the BDSM books that are being published by the dozen at the moment. This is not the first Maya Banks novel I have read, and once again I was impressed by the fact that she doesn't let her readers down, she takes the time to lay out a story and develop her characters - essentially it is a romance with some sex thrown in rather than a book about sex with some characters thrown in. Rush is relatively "tame" compared to the other books I have read, and it is more likely to appeal to the "mummy porn" readers who have enjoyed Fifty shades of Grey than fans of more hardcore BDSM novels, but it was an extremely satisfying read.
These novels are not to everyone's tastes, but if you have a little bit of curiosity and want to read a good BDSM romance then give Rush a try - it is what Fifty shades could have been in the trilogy had been refined and polished. Rush is the first book in the breathless trilogy and is followed by Fever and Burn.
