Lexi Ryan continues The Blackhawk Boys Series with another amazing and emotionally compelling story, RUSHING IN. Quarterback, Chris Montgomery agrees to let his new step sister Grace Lee live with him over the summer and to keep her out of trouble. What he didn’t expect was the undeniable chemistry between them. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Blackhawk Valley, Indiana, and in Champagne, Texas. It is suitable for new adult audiences.
I loved this story! The characters are extremely well-developed and show tremendous growth throughout this story. Chris is a great guy. He was raised by his single mother, Becky Dupree. He is a really good son who appreciates everything she did for him. He understandably has issues with his father who wanted nothing to do with him. He does what he believes is right and will stand up for those that need help.
Becky Dupree is an amazing woman. She was a terrific mother for Dash and is the perfect step-mother for Grace. I love that she believes in Grace.
Grace is a likeable character. She was bullied as a kid for having a stutter. She wanted to fit in and made mistakes in her youth who are still haunting her. She had to deal with some awful people. My heart went out to her and the things she endured. I can understand why she had a crush on Chris. I would have too. I love the internship she gets over the summer.
I Was glad that Grace had Willow for support in Champagne. I love that Mia and Bailey from book one, SPINNING OUT, befriend Grace in Blackhawk Valley. She deserves to have good girl friends.
The plot was believable and expressive. The characters had a lot of obstacles to overcome. There are so many things that happen in this story. Lexi Ryan is truly a gifted author. RUSHING IN had me mesmerized from start to finish. I cannot wait for Sebastian’s story, Going Under, expected to be released December 6, 2016.
