Blog Tour with Giveaway: Christie's review: Rush by Gina Gordon


Series: Standalone
Author: Gina Gordon
Release Date: May 12, 2015
Rating:4 stars
Cliffhanger: No
Publication: Loveswept

In this edgy, sizzling romance for fans of Monica Murphy and Abbi Glines, a bad boy shows a straitlaced law student how to slow down and savor the good things.

Everly Parker is about to graduate from law school, always busy, and can’t stop rushing through life. Her late grandmother left her a bucket list of meaningful, can’t-miss experiences, but she hasn’t completed a single one. Then searing-hot Max Levin bursts into her world. As a casting director for a porn production company, Max is loaded, cocky, and all wrong for Everly. Still, she’s tempted enough to cross the first item off her list: Go out with someone you’d never give the time of day.

Inheriting a porn empire isn’t every guy’s dream (well, actually, it probably is), but Max isn’t complaining. It’s just that until he meets Everly, he has no idea what he’s been missing. As the pressure mounts to take over the family business, Max can’t help wondering what would happen if he chose Everly instead. So far, his life has been a wild ride, but only Everly promises the greatest rush of all: love.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

What made me pick up this book? Well, look at that synopsis. How could you not be intrigued? A book where the hero has ties to the porn industry is not your average read. I was really interested to see how the author would handle this subject matter.

Max comes from a legacy of pornography.

His mother: Porn star.

His father: Owner of White Lace Productions

His parents had one of the most unconventional relationships you can imagine. They met through his production company, married, and she continued to happily work in the industry for years. Sex was not something to be ashamed of or embarrassed by, it was...just sex. Is it any wonder that Max would be expected to follow in his father's footsteps and not only take over the company when it was time, but take part in filming scenes if that was what his heart desired? Laid-back doesn't even cover these two's parenting style. Their "Accomplishment room"? That is just bizarre and so outlandish you have to laugh.

When Max and Everly meet, they're both immediately attracted, but they both know they're too different to do anything about it.

She had a plan and worked hard to achieve it. I, on the other hand, had been handed everything with a gold-plated dildo.

Then he sees her bucket list on the table given to her by her grandmother who recently passed away. It's a list encouraging her to loosen up, enjoy life, and experience new and exciting things. For too long, she's been suppressed by her parents' cold expectations and push to become a lawyer like them. But Max is determined to show her a side of life she's been avoiding all of these years. It will be a purely platonic gesture-too bad his recent lack of interest in sex ended the minute he set eyes on her. His little head has other plans.

I've seen thousands of women naked. I've had more than my fair share of them in my bed, but never anyone like Everly Parker. The decision to keep my dick in check for once wasn't going to be an easy feat.

Everly is struggling just as much. She knows he's not boyfriend material, or even Mr. Right Now material. He's arrogant, too sexy for his own good, and experienced where she's not. He's everything she needs to be staying away from.

What she didn't expect was to find out that he's also sweet and feeling just as lost as she is. How could she ever hope to hold a man like that? But her traitorous body isn't giving up easily. It isn't long before he's all she can think about, fantasize about, and wish that she could be enough for a man like him.

Being with Everly was refreshing in a way that he never thought he could experience. She sees through his surface bull-shit to the man who's been wanting to be more than the superficial porn prince with a trust fund. He wants to make his own way, to earn a good and clean life filled with respect from others and for himself. She was opening his eyes to all the possibilities that he could have, if he would just reach for it. If she could see beneath the porn, does that mean that he could be more?

I was not disappointed in the steam department. These two were completely combustible and had some very satisfying dirty times.

Everything about her was so modest, so unassuming and innocent. It never failed to suck me in, to take me to a place where I wanted to rip apart that sweetness and carry her over to the dark side with me. And right now I was feeling pretty dark.

Max's experience in every side of the sexual spectrum helped her let go of her inhibitions and fears. And she brought a whole new experience to sex that brought his pleasure to towering heights: emotion.

This story had more depth than the good girl-bad boy-let's teach you how to loosen up trope. I was happily surprised at what was underneath the in-your-face lust and exploration. It was about two people from very opposite backgrounds who bonded through an understanding of similar feelings of inadequacy and hopelessness. They were like a mirror to each other's lives and help one another realize the true important things in life. Pursuing your true passion and finding happiness. I really enjoyed this overall. It was passionate, surprisingly sweet, and a refreshingly unconventional story. If you're looking for something different than the norm, this one could be for you.
