This new adult, male/male romance will capture the audience who fell in love with Nyrae Dawn’s Games Trilogy.
For the love of the game.
Brandon Chase has always defined himself by one thing: football. Tough and athletic, he is a great college player who enjoys the hard hits and the sweaty grind of the gridiron. But when Brandon is injured, only one person can help him get back on track-a forbidden love he’s desperately tried to put behind him.
Alec Andrews has never quite forgiven Brandon for walking away when their friendship turned into something more. But he can’t deny help to one of his closest friends. As the two spend the long, hot summer working together, their old attraction comes flooding back.
Now as Alec thinks about coming out to his conservative family and Brandon considers revealing he’s a gay football player, the two men must be strong to fight for a love that could be the greatest rush of their lives.
So I know, this basically goes against the principle of this blog but I didn’t finish this book. I did try though. I read until the cursor on my Kindle indicated 59%, and then I gave up.
Rush isn’t my first M/M romance and once in a while, I do enjoy some boy on boy action in my books. But here I got bored. I went into this book because I knew the author and like what I read from her before and I though this one was promising. But in the end I found it to be very repetitive and I often found myself thinking about anything else but the story I was reading. Or rolling my eyes.
After a certain number of chapters, I felt like the characters were always saying the same things over and over again. I get that there is one or two main issues here for our characters but all you hear how they want to be with each other but know they can’t, and such. So when you read the same argument time and time again, at some point you just want them to, you know move on or something. So that was one thing that didn’t work for me.
The second was that the steamy bit weren’t that steamy after all. There is plenty of sexual tension and eye fucking going on but actual fucking left me thinking “was that it?” . To be honest, I didn’t even read until they actually did the deed because I got frustrated with their fooling around phase.
Basically, this book didn’t do it for me. I felt like, even though the characters were different, they still felt like they were the same. Their voices were very similar to me. And then there was the redondance that just kept happening.
Now I didn’t like this book but it seems like a certain number of people do like it, so you should probably look for more reviews if you want to try and read this one. Sorry there’s no quotes for this one, but I really wasn’t inspired.
