Blackhawk Boys #2; Standalone
The favor seemed simple: Keep my new stepsister out of trouble for one summer.
I’ve never met Grace Lee, but Mom tells me she’s a quiet and artsy college student with a troubled past. When I agreed to let her stay with me, I thought it was no big deal. I expected to share my apartment with a sullen girl who’d spend hours locked in her room.
I didn’t expect a walking fantasy determined to make me lose my cool.
I didn’t expect a woman with secrets so dark, so deep, I’d throw away everything if it would save her from the past.
Rushing in to do this favor is turning my life upside down—and not just because Grace needs her ass spanked. Keep her out of trouble? Grace is the trouble. And I want in.
RUSHING IN is a standalone novel and the second in The Blackhawk Boys series.
Football. Secrets. Lies. Passion. These boys don’t play fair. Which Blackhawk Boy will steal your heart?
RUSHING IN was an addictive read with massive amounts of sexual tension and incredible realness of both character and story. It’s less a sports romance (though that is a component) and more a forbidden romance between two people who should not find the other irresistible. Ryan kept me on edge throughout and I loved it.
I won’t say too much but I loved the lesson and moral of this story. It had such depth and emotional thought put toward each element that it lead to it feeling real and poignant without it feeling cheesy or falsely portrayed. Grace was a fabulous heroine that will really stand out for readers because of her continuous forward movement despite all of the walls in her way and how different she is than most. Her humor (both self-deprecating at times and dirty) and lack of brain-to-mouth filter added a fun playfulness between her and the hero that had me laughing out loud and relating to her in so many ways. And the hero in the story? Probably one of the best I’ve read this year. His thoughtfulness and understanding nature made me fall in love and want him so much for her. He was the beacon of lightness she needed to find her way out of her repressive past.
While steamy and filled with tension, RUSHING IN carries many emotional elements that will have you quickly turning the pages. Ryan’s storytelling does such justice to Grace and her love story. And while I haven’t read the first book, this book made me love the Blackhawk Boys (and other supporting characters) so much that I’m going to put it on my TBR list (both are standalones) straight away, and you best believe the next book in the series is going on that list too. Such a hot, fun story that I know everyone will love.
