Kingston "Mount Rushmore" Rush, the very "large”, hot, super delicious goalie for the Austin Arrows, has had some pretty crappy press and is in need of a PR makeover. Enter his friend and teammate Spencer's sister Ellie who is also his friend. Ellie is a single mom of a 12-year-old daughter and is part owner of the Penalty Box, the bar the players hang out at. It is actually Spencer's idea to have them pretend to be a couple to give him some positive press. And act like a couple they do, but it is only pretend for so long. The raw lust and heat between these two is enough to melt your Kindle.
Kingston Rush has definitely earned a place on my top 10 book boyfriends list. He is funny, sweet, kinky, sexy, strong, dirty and yet oh so vulnerable and I just fell in love with him. Definitely a Goalie god!! Ellie is such a strong female lead owning her own bar and raising her daughter as a single mom and yet she too was so vulnerable. They are so right for each other even if they both needed a little prodding to realize that. Besides the steamy hot sex, I adored their playfulness and witty banter, their "climb Mount Rushmore" twitter conversation was great! I would imagine Kingston is well worth the climb. Kingston was certainly the right man for the job to "kinkify" Ellie.
One of the other elements of this book that I enjoyed was how Ellie's daughter Bianca has her own chapters. Bianca wants to find her father and let me just say that it adds an interesting dynamic to Ellie and Kingston's budding relationship.
Fantastic book! I highly recommend it! I look forward to more in this series.
I was gifted an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
There were times I liked Kingston and Ellie, and there were times I didn't. My favourite parts of the entire story are when Kingston and Ellie text each other. It was cute, flirty, a little sexy, and most of all, no overthinking. Just simple conversation. I think what got me frustrated the most was that they were so afraid to tell the other how they really felt. Ellie never believed any of the nice things Kingston said about her and thought he was just sleeping with her to kill time. No way would he risk his friendship with her or her brother just to get some action, but she never thought of it that way. In regards to Kingston, I thought it was a little creepy that he kept calling Ellie a little girl, especially when they were having sex. There's also a good portion of the story dedicated to Ellie's twelve year old daughter, Bianca, as she searches for her father. As with Kingston and Ellie, there were times I liked her and times I didn't.
RUSH is told mostly in Kingston and Ellie's POV, with a few chapters being told in other characters POVs. It is a series, but I'm assuming each book could be read as a stand-alone. Sadly, this one didn't win me over enough to give the rest of the series a try.
The idea that Kinsgton Rush and Ellie have both harbored feelings for each other for about 16 years but kept them to themselves out of respect for his best friend/her brother…I loved that. Right that we get that this isn’t an insta-romance (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I like a different approach now and then.) There is not only a deep connection between Kingston and Ellie, but also between Kingston and Bianca, Ellie’s daughter. It helps to have a reason a super protective single mom has no problem with her daughter hanging out with her brand new boyfriend…even if he is supposed to be a fake boyfriend.
The fake fiancé, fake girlfriend, fake wife thing is a weakness for me. I don’t know why I enjoy that scenario so much but I do. So this book is right up my alley. You throw in a really great representation of a young teenage girl and the over protective brother and all should be golden.
Bianca is a really good kid but like most kids her age she wants what she wants and doesn’t think through all of the ramifications. It is so true that no matter how hard parents try to monitor their kids’ activities in this age of technology the kids usually can find a way to sneak one past us. And that’s a super scary thing. Plus, the author uses Bianca’s best friend Gabby to show us how insecure kids can be at that age. All the questions Abby had about how the relationship between Kingston and Ellie could possibly spoil Bianca’s childhood dreams really show the up and down emotions of a pre-teen.
I love the chemistry between Kingston and Ellie. I love that Ellie isn’t as sexually bland as she seems to think she is and that Kingston is so great at bringing out that side of her without pushing or making her feel awkward. There is a huge event that occurs that has both of them doubting what the other feels. After all, this is supposed to be pretend. The feelings each go through are totally realistic and appropriate…until those feelings stay bottled up for too long and start to get annoying. Truly, the event that starts the pulling away that they both do is not to be taken lightly. There are a lot of people involved including a child. But it gets to be a bit ridiculous that they’re not only not talking about it to each other but they’re also not talking about it with their closest friends.
I enjoyed meeting some of the players of the Austin Arrows. I know we’ll be seeing a bit more of at least a couple of them and that makes me happy. I love hockey and Nicole Edwards did a great job of portraying that world.
