Maya Banks – The Breathless Trilogy Reading Order

in Reading Order Guide:

In honor of the latest book release by Maya Banks I thought I’d create the reading order guide, and find out when the next releases in the series will be. I hear it’s got that “Fifty” feel, so it’s right up our alley! It’s already going strong, having made the NYT Best Sellers list and our own fellow readers are already recommending it!

Ivannie: Just finished Rush by Maya Banks!! It was really good! (Something similar to fifty shades, but not so hardcore!)

Nikole: Hey guys! So yesterday I started and finished at 1am Rush by Maya Banks. I really enjoyed the book, there is a 50 Shades feel to it…but I think a little better in the fact that the heroine Mia isn’t SUPER naive and she has a backbone, she doesn’t just bend to his every whim. I would give the book a 4-4.5 stars.

Pamela: This book was incredible and it is hurting to wait for the next one…I want the story to pick up where this one left off…but hoping the other friends will share snipets of story that is going on…so good!!! it is a 5 star read!

Sarai: The Maya Banks Breathless series (Rush, Fever and Burn comes out 8/6) totally love!… Three wealthy best friends that have dominant personalities. Fell in love with them. I think you would enjoy :)

Kathy: Can’t wait to read Burn by Maya Banks which just came out today! !! If you haven’t read the first two books in the series, you definitely should!! They are a little pricey but worth the read for sure!! A nice guilty pleasure. :)

About book #1:

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 just finished reading this book last week, and it was good! IMO it’s so much better than 50 which I DNF. Maya’s writing is stellar in comparison.

Victoria February 13, 2013 at 7:34 PM

I love love LOVE this book!

Melody February 13, 2013 at 8:05 PM

I read this book in a day. Really great read and I was so bummed because I did not realize book 2 was not out yet!! Ugh! So excited Maya will be at book bash in Orlando!

Kim Brown February 13, 2013 at 8:13 PM

wow, expensive for this crowd. lol

Jen February 13, 2013 at 9:31 PM

Hi, is this a cliffhanger book? Does anyone know if the story will be about the same characters in the 2nd book? Or different characters? Thanks!

Karen February 13, 2013 at 9:51 PM

Great book; can’t wait for the next one either. I just about read all of Maya Banks books & they were excellent – loved the writing:)

Melody February 13, 2013 at 9:55 PM

It’s not a cliff hanger. Book 2 picks up the story of other characters. There is a sneak peek of book 2 at the end of book 1 and it is good!!

Jackie February 14, 2013 at 9:03 AM

Just finished “Rush” last night and really liked it a lot. Looking forward to book 2! Course, I like pretty much anything Maya Banks writes. Her Highlander historical novel series is wonderful too, and I’m not usually into historicals that much! And I love her KGI series.

I am definitely the odd man out on this book. I hated it. I didn’t feel there was any connection between the two main characters. She may as well have been a blow up doll for the way he treated her and her reactions to what he did to her. I actually was angry at the author while reading this because I have read many of her books and this was not even close to being her best and it could have been so good.

i’ve read this book and loved it! definitely steamy! STEAMY! lol i think this definitely belongs in your “what to read after 50 list” maryse. i’m excited for jace’s story!

sandy sciacca February 14, 2013 at 12:44 PM

I read this one already as well and am looking forward to the next 2,, really great:),, love her books, i’m reading the KGI series now:)

carol mindte February 14, 2013 at 4:02 PM

i love jillian dodd books!

m.bonham February 14, 2013 at 4:22 PM

Oh yes, aren’t these great ?! I like Highlander so much plus many others. Can’t get enough.

Lisa M February 18, 2013 at 5:54 PM

I also read this book in a day!! Loved it! Can’t wait for the sequel!! It totally reminded me of Fifty Shades of Grey. **Spoiler*** I was hoping the sequel would have been a continuation of the same characters. After reading the little snippet to the second book I’m hooked and will be reading it anyway!!

Tesca February 19, 2013 at 10:23 AM

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. It is definitely a must read if you are a Fifty shades of grey fan!

Richmond February 20, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Loved it!! Can’t wait for the next one.

Jamie June 21, 2013 at 7:46 PM

I feel that Maya Banks writes a lot better than the author of Fifty Shades of grey. Her books hold my interest better.

Christina August 10, 2013 at 3:03 AM

Loved the trilogy would love another book added to the series talking about the weddings and children. Such an awesome story!!!
Thank you for sharing your talents and keeping us glued to the books. Can’t wait for the next trilogy to come out.

lynn morgan August 24, 2013 at 7:12 PM

Loved all the books would love to read more is there going to be a fourth book?

Alissa August 31, 2013 at 8:03 PM

I hope she’ll write a fourth book, I would really like to see what happens with the rest of their lives after marriage and of coarse Brittany and Kai.

SP May 1, 2014 at 2:09 PM

heather June 6, 2014 at 8:54 AM
