San Francisco is heating up for Aspen Adams this summer.
With grad school under my belt I’m ready to start the next chapter of my life. San Francisco is a brand new city. I have an amazing apartment, a new job, family, and friends to keep me occupied. Life in the city will be easy.
Keep my head down, don’t break any of the ridiculous rules in my lease agreement, get my best friend through her nasty relationship drama, and stick to my five year plan. I’ve got this. Or at least I would if I could figure out why my heart skips a beat every time I see my hot neighbor.
Handsome, funny, and always around right when I need him, Finnegan McRyan is my own personal knight in shining armor. The tousled hair and sexy glasses don’t hurt his appeal either. Finn acts like the perfect man, but there’s something about him that has me questioning if it’s too good to be true.
Can I count on him when it really matters or is Finn using his good guy image to hide the truth?
Rush is a first in a new exciting contemporary romantic comedy series with a HEA.
Blurb doesn’t represent story
The blurb didn’t really match the story and there was so much drama it became a MAJOR turn off, I almost stopped reading a couple of times there were just too many stupid decisions made. Aspen came off as easy to manipulate and a bit naive (especially considering her background, her brother’s occupation, her friends drama and her schooling), what rational person would go back to a guy who called her a liar and then was all “whoa is me” afterwards. Because one minute she’s all smart and savvy, then next she doing something NO ONE would do. She seemed emotionally and chemically unbalanced not “new girl trying to make her way”.
And then there was Finn… I mean I know there’s gamer guy stereotype but this was just a slight left turn from that trope. But what it basically boils down to is, I’ve read characters (exactly) like him before (billionaire nerds) and they’ve been done a million (billion) times better and with a more than 2-dimensional personality or character arc. He came off as generic and half-baked, like the writer had a concept but didn’t develop him further than the bare bones. Like they gave up halfway and said: “yeah, that’ll do.”
There was just too much assumption made in this book. This was not a healthy relationship, or at least one I could have imagined myself or anyone I know staying in.
Also nothing really comes of the “Rules” thing, you never even really find out what they are or how many there are. And you don’t find out it’s about a gaming company until a bit in too.
