"A steamy, high-octane love story that will have you wondering how far you'd go if you stopped playing by the rules." -New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely


If loving him is bad, I don’t want to be good.
I would die for any one of my little brothers or my baby niece, but I don’t know how I can live without Gabe.
Every moment with Gabe is hotter, better, sweeter than the last.
I know I’m playing with fire, but for him I’m willing to beg to be burned.


We’re going too far, too fast.
This is more than a summer fling. More than just stealing from the rich to feed the poor.
If I really love her, I’ll walk away and stay the hell out of her life. But I can’t.
Even though I know that if we're not careful, our next rush might be our last.

Meet the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessie Evans, gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sexy, contemporary romances she loves to read.

She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a cottage in the jungle. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.

When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and drifting in and out on the waves, feeling thankful for sun, surf, and lovely people to share them with.

    This is a great read.  Gave and Caitlyn have a connection they can't deny.  Evans makes us fall in love with all the characters.  There is a story for everyone.  I can't wait for the next book.

    Thank you Self Taught Ninja Press and NetGalley for ARC.

    i  was skeptical starting this book. Goes against the grain, based on being thieves. I was surprised I got so into it. I fell in love with Gabe and Caitlin. I fell in love with the kids and rooting for everyone. The story is not finished. If book 3 wasn't available I'd be cussing I'm that invested.
    Jessie Evans has a wonderful skill with written words that has you hanging onto anything she writes.

    4.5 Sexy and Twisty Stars!!

    After reading One Wild Night, the prequel to This Wicked Rush I knew that this was going to be unlike any of the books I had read
     from Jessie Evans before (and if you haven’t read it I urge you to go get it for FREE and see how Gabe and Caitlin’s adventures begin)!
     This is not your ordinary romance, but man does it keep your attention. I will tell you up front that there is a cliffhanger and that Jessie
     will be continuing Gabe and Caitlin’s story in the upcoming One Perfect Love. I’m not going to reveal any spoilers either, but I will say
     that this story took me by surprise and there was laughter, suspense and tears.

    “Anything can be done with people who love you by your side.”

    Caitlin Cooney is a fighter, a survivor and a nurturer. She has taken on the responsibility of raising not only her three younger brothers
     but her young niece, leaving a scholarship to an exclusive prep school during her junior year to work two jobs to support the family. She
     doesn’t date, she rarely does anything for herself and most of the time she is more stressed out than someone twice her age trying to
     figure out how to keep a roof over their heads, food in their bellies and the young kids out of the system. But despite all these hardships
     and the support of a couple of really good friends, Caitlin is a bit scared and a bit lonely even if she won’t completely admit it. So when
     Gabe, who she knew in high school, and she share one wild night and he offers one crazy proposition things in Caitlin’s world change
     in unseen ways.

    Gabe Alexander is an ass. He is a player. He is everything rich, spoiled and a total contradiction of it all behind that façade. Gabe has
     had it all handed to him all his life, everything but feeling wanted and loved. Though that is not how Gabe presents himself and not
    what he thinks he wants he knows he wants Caitlin. What starts as him trying to exact some justice on some scumbags his defense
     attorney father has gotten off, it becomes oh so much more as Caitlin becomes first his partner in crime and then “his everything”.

    “…none of us truly know what we’re capable of until we’re put in an impossible situation, until we step over the line and realize things
    aren’t so very different on the other side after all…”

    Caitlin and Gabe are sizzling together. They feed off each other and while Gabe brings out the fierceness in Caitlin, being with Caitlin
     brings out the caring and wanting for more that Gabe professes he never wants. They are supposed to only be together for the
    summer and by the end of it go their separate ways, Gabe back to school and Caitlin with enough financial security to stop killing
     herself and be able to go to college. However the best laid plans and all that. As much as Caitlin wants to resist Gabe she can’t and
     hasn’t been able to since that first night, and maybe just maybe Gabe wants more from Caitlin than just a “fake girlfriend or a partner
     in crime”. What they find together is exhilarating, thrilling and scary as hell but it just might be the best love that either of them never
     knew they needed. Can’t wait to see what Jessie does to me in the follow up to this one because TWR was just that a complete and
     total rush of emotions!!
