THIS WICKED RUSH (Wild Rush Book 1)

“You know what I like, Caitlin. You know I want you to beg for it.”


I’ve never been the kind of person to give up on something I want. Now, I refuse to take no for an answer. I want this girl. I want to help her, and sleep with her, and steal things with her, and make her laugh the way she did right that night in her friend's car. We’re going to have a summer neither of us will ever forget, and by the time we go our separate ways, she’ll have enough money to go to college, and I will have had her…every way I want her.


I’m starting to forget why it’s a bad idea to get in any deeper with a boy who is a walking, talking contradiction. A boy who has a taste for breaking the law, a wicked way with words, and a confident touch that leaves no doubt he’s way more experienced than I am. I’ve spent my life putting aside my own needs and cleaning up after other people’s mistakes. Now, I want to make a mistake of my own. 

I know I’m playing with fire, but for Gabe I'm willing to beg to be burned. 

THIS WICKED RUSH is an edgy, sexy, boundary-pushing read intended for readers over the age of seventeen. The book features graphic love scenes, violence, strong language, and thieves in love. Read at your own risk.

"A steamy, high-octane love story that will have you wondering how far you'd go if you stopped playing by the rules. And may even make you want to step over the lines.” –New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely

I received This Wicked Rush in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by AToMR Promotions. Caitlin hasn’t had an easy life raising her three younger brothers as well as her sisters daughter hasn’t been easy. Her drunken father doesn’t help out forcing her to work two jobs just to be able to feed the kids. When earlier this year she was stuck with an unexpected bill that almost lost her the house a handsome stranger came up with a plane that helped her out.  The boys will be out of school for the summer, costing more money for daycare than she can afford but having dropped out of high school the best she can do is a waitress job as well as working at the theater.

When Gabe  who helped her out before shows up Caitlin isn’t willing to risk going to join because it will her the kids. Gabe is sure that he can keep her from getting caught willing to take the blame, risking going to jail to help her out. Neither of them can deny the attraction between the two of them, and they haven’t stopped thinking about each other since the last time they met. When Caitlin decides to risk it all and trust Gabe she didn’t expect to give him her heart either. What should be an easy way to get money turns deadly quickly, and Gabe’s secret may just risk them both.

I loved Caitlin she felt real, exactly how I would expect a girl forced into her situation to ask. While she may have had to grow up fast putting her dreams on the line she does what matters most taking care of her brothers and niece. I found her character refreshing because she was so honest. Gabe I wasn’t sure about him but as the book progressed I started to like him. They bring out the good in each other, and I liked that he helped her with her father. She needs someone to look after her because she’s used to being walked on.

This Wicked Rush is a captivating story that deals with tough real life issues. It’s an emotional story that takes the reader on a roller coaster ride with Caitlin. I honestly really liked the characters they are easy to connect with. There is a decent amount of smut in the story so mature teens. I like that even though the story did have smut it also had a great story. Caitlin and Gabe remind me a lot of Robin Hood taking from the bad to help out Caitlin. It’s a fast paced story that I had a hard time reading I finished it within just a few short hours. Talk about cliffhanger I can’t wait for the next installment to see what’s going to happen next. This is my first book by the author but I like that her writing style flows smoothly it was easy to get lost in the book. 
 4 out of 5 stars
