Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I’ve enjoyed a few of Lexi's novels now and though I hadn’t read book one this is one of those series where each book is a stand alone, just having a connection by way of the characters and place to the others.
Poor Grace, what a horrific few teen years she’s had, I was so sad for her. Kids can be cruel and to be 13 with a bad stutter and big boobs – well, of course she took the way where she thought people liked her. Its not till later she finds how she’s being used and the consequences are still chasing her years later.
Her dad is overprotective to the extreme, I get he wants to protect her but c’mon she’s 20 now!! It does seem to me as a UK reader though that US teens/early twenties are far slower to be independent. I can’t imagine either myself back then, my own kids, or any of the teens I know now sticking to being told what to do and where she can live at that age....
So Grace does as she’s told, and to be honest its a respite away from the bit -chiness of living in her home town. She’s learning you can’t outrun your past, it comes with you, and though she’s spent years away the locals still think of her as easy gee gee :-(
She’s agreed to spend the summer with her new stepbrother, who she’s not yet met. Then when they do – wow, she finds out he’s the guy she had a “moment” with at her friends house the previous day....She doesn’t want him to know her as easy gee gee, she’s tried hard to leave that girl in the past but as the summer goes on and they finally give on to their feelings that past comes rushing back.
I liked Chris, he’s a good lad, very focussed on his career, and so far done everything to keep that running smoothly, and then he meets Grace and is head over heels in lust, and later love. Can her secrets pull them apart when they come out though? Will his past come up to bite them? Can they make it through or are they doomed to fail because of all the secrets? Its interesting when she brings up the “if a boy/man did that would he still be regarded as a slut or patted on the back” line, its something that so often irritates me. A boy is just “being a lad/sowing his oats/enjoying his freedom” whereas a girl doing the same thing gets the slut/easy/tart etc. label – grrr...
Its a fun read, though I felt I was reading about 14-16 year olds rather than young adults, but maybe as I said its that US/UK divide thing that I’ve noticed before.
I didn’t feel really pulled in to the story, didn’t really feel the issues were huge, more storm in teacup thing mainly. I felt for them both at the end where there seemed to be one thing after another heaped on them, but it all felt a little light ands superficial in a way, not the way I usually feel when reading one of Lexi’s stories.
As serious as the issues were that Chris was facing it just didn’t feel real enough to actually matter, I knew somehow there would be a way out, after all the HEA is why many of us love these stories. Usually the fun is in guessing how the author will do iot but here I just couldn’t really set my mind to working it out. One of those where I enjoyed it but not enough to reread, and I know in a couple of days I’ll have forgotten about them.
Stars: Three, maybe a four? Its a good story but just felt not really deep enough for me.

Rushing in was enchanting, had me hooked from beginning to hea.
Characters, I loved them. Grace is one of those girls who has made mistakes, bad decisions and no matter how hard she may have tried to leave them behind, the cruel reminders of others won't allow her to forget but she is also a woman with backbone.
Chris is the type of good boy, loves his mum,sensible makes good decisions and to top it off is a hot soccer star.
Chris falling for Grace not only brought new complications to Graces life, she then has to deal with her past.
Yes Grace and Chris become step siblings but the plot doesn’t focus on this so no sighs or groans this isn't just another stepbrother romance.
Lexi Ryan cleverly draws you into the lives of Chris and Grace and the turmoils they face, it's balanced with moments of humour with great extended characters and hot moments.
Told in dual pov's you're transported into the thoughts and feelings of each character.
I loved it, I felt the anguish of Grace her lack of self worth and Chris with his swoon worthy moments and the love that he needed her to see and Lexi Ryan with writing brilliance allowed me to feel apart of that.
Rushing in is a great read, great characters, a romantics ideal pasture.
Looking forward to reading more from this series
Straight from the beginning the way Grace described her first crush to how she finally got him is every girls dream and Lexi described it beautifully although there was a heartbreaking story behind Grace she had the strength to get through it especially with the girls who are now her best friends (just shows you can meet best friends later on in life)
This is another great book by Lexi and I can't wait for Sebastian's story.........
My heart broke for Grace, completely. She fought hard against not letting her past define herself and although she was constantly over analysing and over thinking, it didn't get repetitive or have me pulling my hair out in frustration. She's kinda kick ass too!
I loved how Chris finally took the plunge, (grew some balls) and went for what he wanted rather than pushing his own feelings aside and doing what was expected of him as the good guy. Not without making mistakes along the way, of course.
I (stupidly) thought that there was no chance this could top Mia or Arrow's story, which was hauntingly raw and emotional, boy was I wrong!
You know every so often there's a book that just grabs you, pulls you under and consumes every part of you, down to the very last word?
Well for me this is one of them. It will forever remain a part of me. This is so much more than a story of the good guy falling for the girl with a past. Their story is everything!!
Impending book hangover has well and truly set in and it was worth every letter!
