Fever (The Breathless Trilogy, #2) - Maya Banks I really enjoyed this story. I think I like the hero Jace more than I liked Gabe in Rush. Yes, Jace had his moments where he was a jerk to Bethany but he mostly said stupid things in anger where Gabe put Mia into bad situations. Bethany was sweet but was strong in the sense that she overcame her past living situation. I won't go into details and spoil it for anyone else. The only thing that really frustrated me about her was how she gave up everything she could to protect Jack. I understand why she felt obligated to help him but at some point she should have realized she can't help someone who doesn't want to help themself. Overall, I'd give this a 4 out of 5 stars. The love scenes were steamy, I thought Jace and Bethany were perfect together (when he wasn't being a jerk), and I loved reading about Mia, Gabe, and Ash too. I really can't wait for Ash's story Burn :)
