Another amazing story. I was drawn in and couldn't stop until I found out how they would work things out.
This is a good friends to lovers story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Jayla is a strong lead female and Rush is as likable as he was in the earlier books.
The two have known each other for over 15 years. They’ve shared their deepest hopes and fears, comforted each other, celebrated victories and grown up together. She watched as he earned his relationship-phobic reputation as a player, calling him on his “Use, forget, replace, repeat.” pattern. He knows that competing is in her blood, her DNA, and nothing will stop her from going for the win. They know each other better than anyone else on the planet and through it all Jayla has loved Rush. She refuses to be one of his playthings, so she knows he’ll never be hers.
Rush, however, has a secret; one he wants to share with Jayla, but fears it will force them to choose between the sport that is ingrained into their lives and a life built around each other. Is he willing to risk telling her how he feels if it causes him to lose her entirely?
Jayla also has a secret; one that could end her career. She’ll risk anything to keep competing, including her health. But what will she do when she learns that one of the things she may have to risk is the love she’s waited a lifetime for?
Foster shines as she brings the Remington, Stone and Braden families into the story of Rush and Jayla in a series of supporting characters that provide advice, insight and perspective. The dialogue between Jayla and Rush is perceptive and realistic. It not only demonstrates the deep and meaningful friendship they share, but also the fears they both have that trying to move beyond friendship could end their relationship forever. The pace and development of the story is well thought out and lets readers feel joys and frustration along with the characters. The buildup and eventual ignition of the passion between Rush and Jayla is hot and reminds readers that friends can definitely become lovers.
Rush’s struggle between being Jayla’s friend and her boyfriend does knock him down a few notches on the ‘alpha male’ scale, but he finds his way eventually without appearing overly weak. Jayla’s anxieties over the pending changes in her life, both good and bad, bring out her melodramatic side, but her inner strength shows up once she learns to trust both herself and Rush’s feeling for her.
Fans of the series will be ‘updated’ on the life status of couples and family members from previous books. New readers will fall in love with Rush and Jayla as they struggle to find a place where the love of a sport and the love of the heart will complement each other, not complete against one another.

Get it. Read it. Love it.
One of my misgivings with the last book was how the author tried shoving every character from the long series into one book and it got confusing. Of course Rush 's family was mentioned and some even made an appearance, but it was handled much better this time. Possibly because Rush doesn't live right by the rest of them on a regular basis. In fact, it seemed like there was more info on Jayla's family than the Remingtons which makes me wonder if the Stone family will be next in line for these books.
I respected how Ms Foster handled those feelings of "what an I without my sport" as I've found these to be very true to life whether in sports, business or the arts. What I was a bit disappointed in was the way the relationship between Jayla and Marcus at the beginning of the book was handled. I understand Rush's inaction, that was realistic since many friends/family members will often think they're reading too much into these situations. I also like the inner thoughts of Jayla during this time. Men who abuse somehow make even the strongest women feel as though it's their own fault. It was how easily that relationship ended that I didn't like. It's the same thing I didn't like about "Destined for Love". I would hate for a naive woman to think creeps like Marcus just walk away from these situations. What could have been used as a PSA of sorts ended up really lacking.
Other than that blip, this was another great story and I can't wait to read the final Remington saga.
Jayla had been in love with Rush for a very, very long time. She was good at hiding her feelings because Rush never looked at her any differently then he always hide. Now that he was though she had to keep her feelings to herself because she needed Rush around more than anything so she didn't want to leave the friend zone or does she?
I wasn't a fan of Jayla at first she was too bitchy in my eyes. Rush though I loved from the get go. It wasn't until they left the just friend zone and start opening up to each other that I started likely Jayla and even then, I sometimes wanted slap the crap out of her.
This is another great book by Melissa Foster, I can't wait to read the next Remington story featuring Kurt who's the writer.
