All marriages change over time but no one wants to take second place to work. So, starts this the third book in Ms. Banks’ Breathless Trilogy. This story will have emotions flowing and take you on a roller coaster ride as Chessy and Tate work on their marriage. Or, at least Chessy is. Priorities need to change and trust issues arise as this couple takes on their marital issues. These characters feel real and their problems become ones that even those not in BDSM relationships can relate to. Characters from previous books are in this one. However, each book in this series can stand alone. I really looked forward to this story and Ms. Banks definitely fulfilled my expectations. There are so many aspects of this story that had me that I wouldn’t have the space to name them all. All I can say is if you love books that show married couples trying to reignite that spark that was there at the beginning, read this story. It is awesome.
Chessy has been unhappy in her marriage for a while. It seems Tate is more interested in his work and clients than her. She knows something has to change. Tate loves his wife and wants nothing more than to take care of her. When Tate seems to forget Chessy once again, and on their anniversary, Chessy has had enough. Can Tate change or will their marriage be doomed?
In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them. And for a married couple taking steps to renew their marriage, the consequences of one single moment of inattention may come at a price the husband never expects?
Chessy and Tate have been married for several years. In the beginning, their relationship was everything she wanted. Passionate. All-consuming. She offered her submission freely and Tate cherished her gift with a tenderness that made her feel safe. Content. Wanted. Loved beyond all measure. But as the years have gone by, Tate has become more immersed in making his business a success, and Chessy has taken a back seat to his business obligations. Growing unhappy with the status of their once blissful marriage, Chessy knows that something has to give, or they stand to lose it all.
Tate loves his wife. Has always loved her. Providing for her has always been his number-one priority. But lately she’s seemed unhappy, and he’s worried. Worried enough that he arranges for a night together that he hopes will reignite the fire that once burned like an inferno between them.
But a business call at the wrong time threatens everything. Chessy’s safety, his concentration, his wife’s faith in him as her husband?a man sworn to love and protect her above all else. Gutted with the realization that he’s going to lose her?has already lost her?he readies for the fight of his life. Whatever it takes, he’ll get her back, show her that nothing is more important than her love. And that if she’ll allow him to prove himself one more time, he’ll take it all. Everything. But he’ll give back far more: Himself. His undying love.
