Product Description

Product Description

When post-grad Rachael Hamilton accidentally gate-crashes a pro-athlete party, she ends up face-to-face with Ryan Carter, the NFL's most beloved quarterback.

While most girls would be thrilled to meet the attractive young millionaire, Rachael would rather spend time with books than at sporting events, and she has more important things to worry about than romance. Like her parents pressuring her to leave her unpaid publishing internship for law school.

But when Ryan's rookie teammate attaches himself to Rachael, she ends up cohosting Friday-night dinners for half a dozen football players.

Over pancake brunches, charity galas and Alexander the Great, Rachael realizes all the judgments she'd made about Ryan are wrong. But how can a Midwestern Irish-Catholic jock with commitment problems and an artsy, gun-shy Jewish New Englander ever forge a partnership? Rachael must let down her barriers if she wants real love—even if that opens her up to pain that could send her back into her emotional shell forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous read 15 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I don’t know what it is about books and movies centred on American football (or as Americans call but it is like catnip for me! The Blind Side, Friday Night Lights, Remember the Titans I cannot get enough! So when I heard of Allison Parr’s series I knew I was in for a treat and RUSH ME is definitely a favourite book to add to my football obsession!

Rachel Hamilton is a publishing graduate currently holding down an unpaid internship while her savings pay for her Brooklyn rental and groceries. When her roommate invites her to a swanky party in Manhattan Rachel accidentally wanders into the wrong apartment and comes face to face with a world far removed from anything she could imagine – professional football. Trading barbs with NFL quarterback Ryan Carter only serves to remind her that this is not her scene however when Ryan’s teammates take a shine to the only girl who hasn’t fallen head over heels for their cocky football star Rachel finds herself constantly thrown together with Ryan. As the months pass, Rachel and Ryan bicker constantly, challenge each other’s preconceptions and prejudices and realise that perhaps first impressions aren’t always reliable and opposites really do attract...

There is one reason above all others that I adored this book; the main characters COMMUNICATE! Yes they talk! They don’t give mixed signals, they don’t say “I’m fine” while secretly simmering with anger, they lay it all out there and damn the consequences. It was so refreshing to read and interesting to see it all play out.

I adored both characters, Rachel was a fresh and funny heroine, eager to give her opinion despite an underlying feeling of inadequacy present at all times as she feels she’s floundering while everyone else’s careers seem to be on track.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible!! 17 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
really sorry but the lead in the story Rachel has to be one of the most judgemental, idiotic, opinionated characters i have ever read about- to the point that i could only read 3/4 of the book- she was utterly unlikeable and had a critisicm and judgemental view on everything.

awful story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather Boring 25 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I expected more from this story. What I got was a boring hero and heroine, a lot of football talk, religious discussions and a feeble plot.

Millionaire pro football player Ryan can have any girl he wants but along comes Rachel who is less than impressed with him (because of how she first meets him) and turns down his advances. The love story is slow going. They bicker, then they are friends, then lovers but then I found it a bit unbelievable that Ryan would be so insecure about being good enough for Rachel. Rachel is 23, Ryan 26...when the standard fall out came, I thought it was a bit childish for someone of their ages.

It didn't really feel like a love story to me and I was disappointed in the dialogue and lack of romance. Not my cup of tea.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic read 19 April 2013
By jane
Format:Kindle Edition
Rachael Hamilton accidentally gatecrashes a party and walks in on Ryan Carter in an compromising situation then clashes with him, Rachael has to return the next day to pick up her scarf that she left behind. She ends up getting along with Ryan's friends really well and starts spending time with them.

NFL quarterback Ryan Carter and Rachael don't hit it off very well, he is used to females throwing themselves at him and know who he is. Rachael doesn't know and she isn't falling at his feet but there is a spark there.

They have great chemistry and great sex too but the relationship has its ups and downs.
Funny one liners and a Rachael is a refreshing personalty from the normal female leads.

RUSH ME is another novel that had me hooked by the time I had finished reading the first page, I had a really warm and fuzzy feeling reading it and I swear that my heart jumped at parts too. I think the main cause of this was Ryan, he is a great lead male that had me falling for him too.

I really loved this story, a fantastic first novel from Allison. I will be looking forward to reading more from her in the future.

5 stars from me

3.0 out of 5 stars decent NA 14 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
When Rachael accidentally gatecrashes the wrong party, she ends up face to face with Ryan Carter. She has no idea who he is, and he is unwilling to believe her stumbling on the party is a harmless accident.

Chance brings them back together and before she knows it, Rachael has befriended half a dozen famous football players. For the most part, Rachael knows and adores them all. Except Ryan, who pushes all of her buttons yet is there whenever she turns around.

Pretty soon Rachael and Ryan realise their bickering is mutual attraction and flirty banter. Both have big, strong personalities that do clash. Jealousy and passion keep things lively with doubt and uncertainty clouding their potential happiness.

Rush Me is both a hit and a miss for me. In a lot of ways I loved it - loved how the football players were like a big, dysfunctional family who are loyal and fierce. I loved Rachael and Ryan's bickering and their gradual attraction. But, there were far too many cliches and fakeness that just made the story fall flat at times.

It's a good, easy read that fills the time but doesn't really satisfy in the way I wish it could.
