After the first book and the journey that Jag took, I was looking forward to this book I thought that Rush would be everything I expected…well I was only half right.
He was everything I thought he would be but that was the bad bits, the good bits and they did come, so bear with him were what I hadn’t anticipated.
I think it is safe to say that he made no bones about the fact that he enjoyed the company of women, he was a walking embodiment of what a m****ore really is but everyone has their day of reckoning and for Rush his was spectacular! And for him and everyone around him his s**t finally got real.
I liked that he had a thing for the bands assistant manager that had so far be thwarted, I could feel myself rooting for her, but I also wondered how his antics would have left a mark on her attitude towards him, well let’s just say that she doesn’t suffer him for long really, they have one steamy night together and then it was as if nothing had happened, I was chomping at the bit for more but the author made them wait it out and the story picked up a whole year later!
I knew then that they had to find a way to not only work together but if there is ever the chance of something coming from what they both feel then they have to find a way of leaving it in the past, the question was could they?
Would Jules be his turning point? His forever? Well it was a far from smooth road and I was more than a little concerned for the along the way but I kept my fingers crossed…. did it work, well you need to read it find out!
I found Rush a lot easier to like and connect with compared to the other characters. Even though he's a whore, rude and at times disgusting, I still loved him. Once you get past his rockstar persona and see how he really feels about Jules, he's surprisingly easy to like.
Assistant manager of the group Jules has her work cut out trying to control the boys. Fighting her attraction towards Rush, she knows deep down that anything between them won't end well. I loved Jules. I completely got where she was coming from.
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.
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.
