I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Becoming a goaltender in the NHL is the only thing I ever wanted for myself.
Two years ago, I was the best goalie in the league, for the third time. With our Stanley Cup win, the Austin Arrows were on top of the world. Nothing could possibly bring us down.
Turns out, even when youÔÇÖre at the top, you can find yourself back at rock bottom.
But it gets worse.
Not only did the team fall from grace, then I did too. I was accused of something I didnÔÇÖt do. And now IÔÇÖm being forced to repair my tarnished reputation.
Only I donÔÇÖt know how to do that.
When the suggestion is made for me to pull off this ruse for the media, I know what IÔÇÖm getting into. I also know thereÔÇÖs only one right answer.
But itÔÇÖs complicated, and IÔÇÖm not the only one who could get hurt.
ThereÔÇÖs only one major problem.
I canÔÇÖt say no.
Rush was one of the most refreshing books I have read in a while. It has all the elements of a great story. Sexy hockey player, spunky single mom, and adorable kid. I love children in books, but only if they enhance the story, and it definitely did with Rush. It also holds all the hotness we have come to expect from a Nicole Edwards book.
Kingston Rush has been falsely accused of being a bad guy and player in the media, distracting him effectively from his game. Yet, heÔÇÖs determined to turn things around this season and ignore the gossip, until management proposes a solution to his PR problem. A solution he cannot ignore because it presents him with the perfect opportunity to go after what he always wanted.
Ellie Kaufman is a successful single mother. But between her bar and her daughter, she doesnÔÇÖt have much spare time on her hands, especially to date. Until her brother and his best friend, Kingston, need a favor. A favor that might very well break her heart and blur the lines of friendship she is so careful to maintain with Kingston.
Will they be able to overcome their insecurities and preconceived notions? Will they be able to take the leap or maybe let the best thing that happened slip through their fingers?
I loved Ellie and Kingston. They were hot as hell, especially in the bedroom. But what else do you expect from Nicole Edwards. She truly knows how to heat it up between the sheets. Rush is a sexy, funny, charming, and refreshing hockey book. I loved both characters and their attitude. Ellie is a strong and independent heroine, while Kingston is the perfect gentleman, at least outside the bedroom. However, I did get annoyed with them both at times. The back and forth was a little much. But then, I also understood where each of them is coming from.
Rush was nevertheless a delight to read. And IÔÇÖm sure Nicole Edwards fans will definitely love this one though, I know I did. ItÔÇÖs a fun read I canÔÇÖt recommend enough. I canÔÇÖt wait for the next one!
