In Rush we get to know Spencer and Noelle on a very surface level…Spencer is kind of serious and a man-whore, Noelle is chipper and nosy. There is so much more to these characters than first meets the eye. I love how snarky and sarcastic Noelle is while still being upbeat and optimistic. And Spencer is pretty serious, but with his role as team captain and various other things going on around him it’s not a surprise. He’s also passionate and caring.
The sexual tension between Noelle and Spencer is amazing. Everything else slips away when they’re together including her inhibitions. In truth, Noelle only has inhibitions because she’s small and it seems everyone else thinks she should be treated with kid-gloves. Once Spencer realizes she can take what he has to offer he doesn’t hold back. And it’s HOT!
Although Noelle’s fears about what she wants in life and what she’s doing in life fall away when she’s with Spencer, she’s a bit neurotic when their play time is over. She tells him they can’t let anyone know what they’re doing yet is miffed when he acts like nothing happened when they’re in public. It seems cliché but it also seems realistic to me. Women (me included) think way too much!
The friendship that slowly takes form between Spencer and his ex-girlfriend Amber is a treat; showing that men and women CAN be friends even if there is a history. They’re both different people now and learn to talk and interact in a way that is comfortable for them. It helped me to like Amber who I was not crazy about in Rush. I look forward to reading her story now.
I felt that the friendship between Noelle and Ellie was a bit one-sided in Rush and this story really cemented that first impression. I get that Ellie was going through a lot and she did notice things, but she never asked Noelle about any of those things. Noelle did keep a lot of secrets from her, but since Ellie could sense something happening (not always in a positive way either) I would think she would at least had tried to probe a bit deeper. It seems Noelle forgives her so who am I to judge?
By the way, you may have noticed that I skipped Jared in my quest to read all of Nicole Edwards’ works. Well, I have an ARC of Harmless waiting for me (squee!!!) and decided I’ll have to skip around a bit to get it done properly. I figured the characters from Jared wouldn’t necessarily figure into the Harmless story. At this point I’ll only be reading the stories that seem like they’re directly related to Harmless; those that have to do with the Austin Arrows or Pier 70. Then I’ll circle back to Jared.
Standalone though part of a larger series
Told from both POVs (Also a few chapters from a third POV)
No major editing issues
Having read Rush I couldn't wait for this book to come out. While it isn't necessary since they are actually playing out at the same time you have the benefit of some of the story overlapping to help give you context as to when certain things are taking place.
Spencer is the captain of the Austin Arrows. He is also Ellie's big brother. You get to know him a bit in the first book. He can be a harda** when he wants to be. He feels protective over his sister and often puts his foot in his mouth where she is concerned.
Noelle is Ellie's best friend. She has know Ellie and Spencer for most of her life. She is free spirited, believes that if you put good vibes out into the universe it will reward you and is basically just an all around loon.
For years these two have know each other and never thought twice about what could be, but then fate ( or maybe the universe) steps in and hilarity and holy smokes hotness ensues.
This book has some very hot and heavy scenes in it which I really enjoyed, but it also dealt with some very real situations like domestic abuse.
As always this author has a way of drawing you in and making you fall in love with the characters. I couldn't put this book down and thought it was even better than the first in the series.
A must read!
Spencer has not made it a secret that he has a revolving bed, one night stands only. For that reason, Noelle has never looked at him in any kind of romantic way in all the years she has known him having grown up best friends with his sister, Ellie.
But one night things start to change, they both find themselves inexplicably drawn to the other. With an undeniable connection that can't be ignored, they give in to one night together. Of course that isn't enough, especially for Spencer.
But between an ex coming back, holding back on both their parts, and a pig headed attitude, their 'relationship' is brittle at best.
I really liked Noelle. I liked her in Ellie's story, and I like her more now. She is quirky, quick witted, and not afraid to speak her mind.
Spencer was a breath of fresh air. Yes he had his time of questionable behavior but he knew what he wanted and he wasn't going to let anything come between him and getting it, well other than his pig headedness.
I look forward to Julie's story, Noelle did warn her!
