Whereas Jag was a total mess with his drug habit, Rush was more responsible with his drugs, if that makes sense! He had a handle on it and used more for recreational reasons. He controlled the drugs, they didn’t control him. The difference between the two of them was that I think Rush was more likeable and more dimensional.
Jules was a strange character. I swear her character changed half way through the book making me go from really liking her to thinking what a bitch towards the middle of the book!
Once again, I enjoyed reading Ms Cole’s depiction of the life of a rockstar. It all seemed very plausible to me. I felt this was a better written book. The plot was set out early on and kept true throughout the book. I felt the story moved forwards and flowed much better than the first book.
It’s no secret that Jag ripped me to shreds, the content of that book was mind blowing, so I was really excited for Rush. I didn’t expect it to be as heavy as Jag and it wasn’t to be fair. It deals with an addiction all the same, but a very different one. I think in all honesty Stevie J Cole’s Pandemic Sorrow series is my favourite rocker books. I enjoy this sub-genre for the most part but it doesn’t come at the top of my list so I tend to read less of them. This series is good.
Anyway, onto Rush. It didn’t impact me like Jag did, maybe because of the addiction subject who knows? I liked the storyline, although it wasn’t really anything I hadn’t read before. What makes it good is how Stevie writes it, her words get under your skin and there’s plenty feeling when reading it. I got to say though that at times this book had me feeling dirty, some of the things left my skin crawling a little. Not so much in a disgusting way but in a dirty way if that makes sense. There were some tough issues broached in this book and I think Stevie managed them well enough.
I wasn’t overly impressed with Rush as a character, took me a little while to warm up to him and I wasn’t a fan of his actions, even where Jules was concerned. My feelings were about the same for Jules. I couldn’t quite jump on that rollercoaster with them. I liked that it tied in with Jag’s book and I got yet another side to what was going on. There wasn’t very much romance going on, but then again Rush wasn’t really a romantic guy so I guess I get why it was lacking. Obviously the sex is smoking hot and filthy in here; you might wanna have a change handy whilst reading.
A little disappointed that it wasn’t on par with Jag but it is definitely worth a read, especially if you like Stevie J Cole and books about sex, drugs and rock n roll.
Rush is the embodiment of a manwhore, never have I ever seen a character quite like this. But be sure he'll get's a MAJOR wake up call at some point that not only involves him but others around him as well.
Now putting his manwhore manners aside he does have a certain soft spot for the bands assistant manager Jules who has been with them from pretty much the get-go.
These two have shared a connection from day one but never actually acted on it, until one steamy night that is. Now you don't think it'll be a fairy tale after this would you? ;)
Fast forward one year...
Will it finally be their time? Will they finally be able to put all these "issues" behind them? Or is this just one of these relationships that are just not meant to be? Will she be his game changer?
It will be a very long and very bumpy ride to get to the end... and when they get there will Rush be a reformed manwhore who's gotten his HEA with the girl of his dreams?
Stay tuned and as usual read read read people!
Rush is the typical manwhore rock star, sleeps with all the fans, loses himself in sex because he is living the life he is expected to but is filling a gap for what or who he really wants. He has liked Jules for the last six years and after finally one night together he realises the strong feelings he has for her. Only problem being, Jules finds him disgusting and doesn't want to lose her job so does her best to ignore him and her feelings for him.
I loved this book, had me hooked apart from stupid RL getting in the way! lol It was great having more of the other band mates in it and it also showed how Jag's problem affected Rush and how him and Jules tried to help him and deal with his addiction.
This is by no means a fairy tale read, it is real with lots of emotions, lots of sex and lots of swearing! There are many bumps in the road but it does show a softer side to Rush too! I loved the whole book!! Oh and the extra scene at the end... HOT HOT HOT!!!
Another brilliant book from Stevie and I can't wait for the next!!
