Launch Day Blitz - Rush by Nyrae Dawn

 Title: Rush
Author: Nyrae Dawn
Release Date: May 6, 2014


Brandon Chase has always defined himself by one thing: football. Tough and athletic, he is a great college player who enjoys the hard hits and the sweaty grind of the gridiron. But when Brandon is injured, only one person can help him get back on track-a forbidden love he's desperately tried to put behind him.

Alec Andrews has never quite forgiven Brandon for walking away when their friendship turned into something more. But he can't deny help to one of his closest friends. As the two spend the long, hot summer working together, their old attraction comes flooding back.

Now as Alec thinks about coming out to his conservative family and Brandon considers revealing he's a gay football player, the two men must be strong to fight for a love that could be the greatest rush of their lives.

Rush is your typical coming out book. I have read a lot of these books and they all have the same gist. But Nyrae created characters that I adored. Brandon stole my heart with his coming out and his love for Alec. Rush isn’t full of hot sex scenes but the love these men have for each other is touching. It was a very real book with a homophobic dad, a set of supporting parents and a best friend.

I think all in all this book is 4 stars.
 ~ Review by Jordan
There were so many times when we were teenagers where we snuck to places just like this. We’d slip off into the woods to find a spot and we’d talk and then kiss and it was so different than the girl’s I’d done the same thing with. Our shirts would come off and our bodies matched in so many ways and felt so right against each other.
He’d touch me and I’d touch him though we were too stupid and scared to try without clothes between us. I don’t want to be stupid anymore.
“You’re fucking killing me here. You just told me last night you’re still pissed at me. I don’t want to screw-up with you. Not anymore. I’m scared as hell to do the wrong thing.”
I take a step toward him. Then another. It’s all Brandon needs and then he’s coming toward me and backing me against the car. The metal is hot on my back but the sting doesn’t touch the need rushing through me.

Writing has always been Nyrae Dawn's passion. Nyrae gravitates toward character-driven stories. She loves going on emotional journeys with characters whether it be reading or writing. And yes, she's a total romantic at heart and proud.

Nyrae resides in sunny Southern California with her husband (who still makes her swoon) and her two awesome kids.

When she's not with her family, you can be pretty sure you'll find her with a book in her hand or her laptop and an open document in front of her. Nyrae also writes adult romance under the name Kelley Vitollo.
