Rush Me by Allison Parr

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review at NetGalley

This book was pretty funny.  There were a few spots that left me shaking my head wondering why the main characters needed to do what they were doing to each other. Get your mind out of the gutter, I didn’t mean it that way.  They just did a good job of hurting each other.

Rachael was an interesting character.  A bookish girl with zero sports knowledge stumbles accidentally into a NFL players party and meets Ryan Carter, one of the most popular NFL quarterback’s.  It was not love at first sight.  It wasn’t love at second site either 🙂 It is cute how she forms a friendship with the rest of the team though.

I laughed my way through the book and read it in the same day – so I’d recommend it.  It’s available for pre-order at  It doesn’t release until April 8th but definitely pick it up.


When post-grad Rachael Hamilton accidentally gate-crashes a pro-athlete party, she ends up face-to-face with Ryan Carter, the NFL’s most beloved quarterback.

While most girls would be thrilled to meet the attractive young millionaire, Rachael would rather spend time with books than at sporting events, and she has more important things to worry about than romance. Like her parents pressuring her to leave her unpaid publishing internship for law school.

But when Ryan’s rookie teammate attaches himself to Rachael, she ends up cohosting Friday-night dinners for half a dozen football players.

Over pancake brunches, charity galas and Alexander the Great, Rachael realizes all the judgments she’d made about Ryan are wrong. But how can a Midwestern Irish-Catholic jock with commitment problems and an artsy, gun-shy Jewish New Englander ever forge a partnership? Rachael must let down her barriers if she wants real love—even if that opens her up to pain that could send her back into her emotional shell forever.
