In Rush it's another brother of the same family this time Ares who meet Arianna or Ari who is the daughter of the head coach at the football team Ares plays for. Ari has a problem with alcohol and her first meeting with Ares doesn't go too well as his father is also a recovering alcoholic and he has a problem with trusting another one.
The story is ok if a bit predictable. More silly names for goodness sake (what's with that), and at the end which again ends abruptly we catch up with the characters from the previous book Zeus and Cam! Possibly this will happen again in the next book and we may find out how Ares and Ari are getting on. There's another brother and a sister so I guess there will be more books.
On the whole an ok read.
After loosing her much loved job at the Art gallery, Ari takes a job working for her father who’s the coach for the New York Giants, It doesn’t get off to a good start curtesy of Ares Kincaid who’s the quarterback ... it was ok initially but as soon as Ares realises who Ari is the cheeky flirty banter that was there is no more it becomes a painful interaction while we watch Ares pass judgment, he knows nothing about Ari’s personal life but yet here he is being so hateful, he may have his reasons of course we already know about his father but it doesn’t make it right.
It’s only the third chapter and you realise how lonely Ari is while she comes to terms with leaving her previous life behind and work towards a better future you have a pretty good idea it’s not going to be easy especially when it comes to the likes of Ares. She has no friends apart from Luke who is her sponsor but you feel extremely grateful he’s around for Ari.
It takes an altercation between Ari and her Ex before we see a change in Ares character, it’s an improvement and Ari hangs onto hope but as the storyline continues although their relationship of sorts improves there is still doubt and trust issues for various reasons.
Rush pulls at your heartstrings all the way through whether it’s because of Ari’s situation alone, Ari and Ares relationship struggles or Ari and her father... it’s all there and very emotional.
Ari and Ares relationship takes a turn for the better Ari’s dads on board and all is good what could go wrong?
Leo... I had my suspicions but I didn’t think he would go that far. It’s a terrible time and it sabotages Ari and Ares relationship and again we witness Ares doing his worst and you have to wonder if their relationship can come back from this.
It’s a painful and sad time even more so when Ari takes her painting’s to the gallery... especially the one that holds so much meaning but there’s hope in sight, Ari’s not only got a job at the gallery but she will be show casing her work too... can things get any better... you will soon find out.!!
I hope there’s more from the Kincaid’s??
She’s insightful enough to realise the position has been created by way of means for her father to keep a close eye on her. But after hitting rock bottom with a DUI arrest, a stint in rehab and the loss of her dream job Ari is seizing the opportunity to get her life back on track.
Her first day on the job veers dramatically off course when she finds herself one on one with star quarterback Ares Kincaid. They have an easy back and forth which comes to a screeching halt when he discovers who she is, or more specifically, what she has done. She’s used to the looks of disgust she garners from her arrest, but admittedly his rejection stings more than most.
What Ari doesn’t know is that Ares hostility is borne from his own experiences with his alcoholic father. He thinks her callous and selfish and isn’t afraid to tell her so. It isn’t until Ares is forced to step in between an incident with her and her ex-boyfriend does he begin to see the real Ari. If he’s honest with himself even with his preconceived notions about her, he’s frustrated by how much he can’t stop thinking about her.
I loved that Ari had no hesitations in accepting accountability. She strove to maintain her sobriety and was focused on the betterment of herself, and because of this I was struck by how quickly I become emotionally attached to her.
The fiery beginning of their nemeses evolved into an intense and heartfelt relationship that I quickly became obsessed with. On par with the story it had depth and sentiment making it a highly enjoyable read.
Addictive, emotional and passionate, Rush is Samantha Towle at her best.
