Breathless Trilogy, Book 1

Because of the bad review I gave Dirty Little Secret, I decided to read another book in that genre just to see if it was me, my mindset, or the book. I’m happy (sort of) to report it was the book. Rush is a fun read.

Another 50 Shades of Grey readalike, this book has main characters that are fairly well defined and feel like actual people more than just stereotypes. No sirs, no pets, but still BDSM in all of its sexy glory. If you like that sort of thing, and I do when it is done well.

Gabe Hamilton has had a major crush on Mia for years, but she’s his best friend’s baby sister, fourteen years his junior. When she was 16, that was a problem but now that she’s 24, it doesn’t seem so insurmountable anymore. When Mia arrives at a work party looking for her brother, he is nowhere to be found but Gabe dances with her and gets her home safely – after ordering her to be in his office the following Monday morning.

He offers her a job as his personal assistant, but there is a catch – he has her sign a contract basically making her his sex slave. She has a major crush on him, so she goes for it but they both decide her brother can’t know anything about that part of their relationship. Of course, all good ideas go asunder, or what would be the point.

This is an erotic romance with the requisite happily ever after and it was a good read. My faith in erotica is now restored.

    hi stacy–linda stasi (pronounced stacy) here. thank you so much for including BOOK OF JUDAS in your wondrous You know my books are kind of fed to me by the ethers with “coincidences” that can’t be real but are. so just last night i was thinking about and missing my favorite aunt who passed away a few years ago and wishing i’d get a sign from her. and today i found out that you’d be featuring BOJ and having a book giveaway. oh what’s that you say? what does my aunt have to do with you? my aunt’s name was phyllis stasi alesi. xo linda

      Hi Linda,
      Thanks so much for writing! That is a very funny coincidence. I (well, my husband) must be related to your aunt somehow, Alesi is not a common name (like Alessi is) and they are all related. Best of luck with the new book!
