Lust. Temptation. Deception.

Technology capitalist, Lars Elliott, lives on the edge, savoring the adventure of flirting with death. After rescuing a stranger from a hail of bullets, he resists attraction to the dangerous beauty. Determined to learn her secrets, he draws her into his seductive world of risk taking, pushing her sexual limits. As he unravels the mystery surrounding the lovely doctor, he questions the integrity of those close to him.

Caught in a web of lies, marine biologist, Dr. Braelynn Rollins never expected to face off with the tempting CEO who’s haunted her dreams. Deep undercover, she’s committed to revealing clandestine adversaries of the nation and recovering stolen research. Exposed, she’s forced to trust the man who has the power to both destroy and save her. Within his arms, she surrenders control to Lars, submitting to desire and exploring her forbidden cravings.

Lars and Braelynn heat up southern California as they discover who is friend and who is foe. Spiraling down a journey of lust and revenge, their carnal hunger escalates. As danger and corporate espionage surround them at every turn, Lars must decide if she is as innocent as she claims and if she is worth the rush.

Another great book by Kym Grosso!

Kym Grosso is one of my top 5 authors that I love to read. She never fails to enthrall her readers and with Wicked Rush she has continued on the same track. This book is full of action, suspense, intrigue, and Hot Sex. This book for me was better than the first one, Carnal Risk. Now if you have not read Carnal Risk you will want to read it before you read Wicked Rush so you understand what has happened and can follow this story line of this book. Wicked Rush had me on the edge of my seat and I just could not put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen next. The only thing I have to say that is slightly negative is we are left on a cliffhanger, literally. You will understand what I mean by that when you read this Fabulous book. I Highly Recommend this most anticipated book. Thank you Kym and keep up the awesome work. I can't wait for the next book in this tantalizing, engaging series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

First off, I want to thank Jase Dean. Why am I thanking him? He’s the cover model on the book, and, made the book oh so much hotter for me imagining him as Lars. I’m going to let you in on a little secret, I usually put myself in place of the heroine. I’m sure you’re all saying, “Silly Knotty Sandie, we ALL do that.” Just thought I’d put it out there. I even have sets and locations going on. But I’ve always liked Jase, so…yeah. (I’m sure a few people will remember my RP days when I played a certain character and Jase was my characters Dom and…ahem.) Anywho, on with the review. My biggest thanks, of course, go out to Kym Grosso. What an Awesome book! Probably one of the more anticipated books in my collection to date, and so very worth the wait. I wanted to see Lars get his very own HEA and this is it! Lars is surfing in the ocean when gunfire erupts. He ends up rescuing a woman who calls out his name as he shelters her while waiting for help. He sees her again, 2 months later, but it seems she’s in some kind of trouble. Lars is bound and determined to find out exactly what that is, and he has some innovative ways of teaching her the meaning of trust. Hot is too tame a word for this book. combustible, on fire, that works sure! It’s simply a book you need to pick up and read for yourself. You’ll be so glad you did! I give this 5 Super Kinky Orgasms

The title of Kym Grosso’s latest installment of the Club Altura Series perfectly describes the book. Wicked Rush is pure adrenaline from the onset. Greedy titans of industry using violence to get what they want. Corporate espionage by someone for uncertain reasons!?! A beautiful woman in danger. Hot, daring, intelligent man overcome with the need to protect and find answers. What more could you ask for? Wicked Rush is a fast-paced, action-packed adventure. Whether on the beach, in the lab or in the bedroom, there is never a dull moment in this book. Ms. Grosso punctuates her tale of dangerous corporate espionage with sizzling hot M/F/M love scenes, but the action-adventure storyline was the real draw to the story for me. Being a native Californian, I really appreciated the detailed, accurate description of the greater San Diego area. The author’s attention to a solid plot, accurate details, and good writing, made the book more enjoyable. Lars Elliott was introduced in a prior book, and his relationship with the other men in the book was developed in that first book (Solstice Burn) as well. It is not really necessary to read the books in order, but I think it adds to the understanding and ultimate enjoyment of the book. While a no-nonsense confident male, Lars has a soft side. He showed quite a bit of caring, understanding and forgiveness to Braelynn, the story’s heroine. One aspect of this character that I didn’t appreciate was that while he so readily forgave Braelynn of everything and anything, he would not afford his long-term, good buddy, Garrett the same grace. His grudge with Garrett (from book 1) continues to fester, and the incivility felt mutual. It made me question the foundation of their friendship. At first, Braelynn comes off as a weak, melodramatic, damsel-in-distress, but readers soon get to see her as an intelligent, strong woman. Some might question her ethics. Is doing something unscrupulous in order to correct an injustice corrupt and improper? Do the means justify the end? Read Wicked Rush and judge for yourself! Seth, who is a Club Altura member, is a fabulous character that you can’t help but love. He is not judgmental. He is calm and strong. He is a loyal friend. Seth is featured in both the zenith of the Wicked Rush storyline as well as the tantalizing epilogue. The epilogue is a gigantic cliff-hanger segue for Ms. Grosso’s next installment. Overall, a fun quick read that is filled with action and peppered with Ms. Grosso’s signature, scintillating love scenes.

The Ultimate Risk........Lars is dominant, sexy and protective! When he saves the beautiful Braelynn from harm, he sets off a chain of events that could ruin everything and put them in more danger. What is Braelynn hiding? Why is Lars friends telling him to stay away from her? What will happen and who will survive when the truth is uncovered? Braelynn had no choice in the situation she finds herself in and is trying to protect herself and Lars. Will Lars be able to break down her defenses and get her to trust him? This book was full of action, danger, mystery and sexy hot chemistry! Loved it!

Are you ready for the rush? 5 GOLD KEYS HOLY SMOKES! What a Wicked Rush indeed!! A Wicked Rush and threesome... I mean, and then some! wink I am ABSO-CARNAL-LUTELY blown away by just how WICKEDELICIOUS and deeply enriched this book - and series - are!!! If you think that this series would be light, fluffy even, with empty characters and all about the naughty only... YOU WOULD BE OH SO VERY WRONG!!! I was swept away with the tide by Kym's storytelling, completely enthralled & hanging onto every word! I love, Love, LOVE how every story is different, but in a comfortable way. These guys may work, play & stay hard, but they are all different in how they do… everything! The complex characters had me wrapped around their little finger, trusting them, believing in them and beyond thrilled & honored even, to not only share this part of their lives with them, but to actually become them, experience it all, live it all AS them! I fell in love with Lars in Carnal Risk and was hanging on to his every word with Braelynn! I would happily stay in his bed and wait for him – no handcuffs needed! and Brae? WOW! Everything she has gone through is horrible! And the other people all involved in this deception and blackmail and thievery… It kept ME guessing until all was revealed! Or at least for this book! Somehow I think that Lars could convince most any female to do his bidding – behind closed doors, in his pool, “their” beach and in public! He had me all wet & ready! *dreamily naughty sigh* Kym is one phenomenally talented & exceptionally gifted author!! It shocks me to say this about a non-paranormal book & series but I am consumed - mind, body, heart & soul! Having the chance to read all 3 books in this series back-to-back-to-back wasn't an opportunity I was going to pass on... even if it isn't my much-preferred paranormal and WOW!! Am I ever glad I took the plunge!! Kim is definitely one SWIMTASTIC author and I am ready to dive right in to the next book! SIGN ME UP! I WANT TO JOIN THE CLUB!! Well, except for the skydiving part. Even though I do have a couple of Kym's Vampire books, this series is actually my first of hers that I have had the immense pleasure of reading, and I GUARAN-DAMN-TEE it will NOT be the last! If she can hook me so deep into a "contemporary" story - erotic or not - I can only imagine how VAMPTACULAR & FANGASMIC her Vamps will be!! wink A tragic ending to a story that should never have been written… or is it? *sly smile*

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Lars Elliott is one of those men that lives for the rush, living his life on the edge. Weather it is surfing the big waves to climbing Mt. Everest, to skydiving, Lars has done it all. While he and Seth, his best friend are out surfing one day, shots ring out and a woman is hit. Lars runs to save her, taking her into a cave in the cliffs. When she is taken to the hospital, Lars stays with her, he is drawn to her because he thinks she knows him and he wants to know how. Because he should remember her if they have met before. When she finally wakes up, she doesn't know him and hospital security will not let him near her. Dr. Braelynn Rollins is in way over her head. She is a marine biologist who has been thrown into the deep end and is undercover to steal back secrets that were stolen but not by her. A rival company is where she has gone to work but the owner is not who he seems and she just wants to get the research, be done and leave the country. While Lars and Braelynn are getting closer, trust is hard for her. But can Lars make her see that he is going to protect her no matter what? Will she tell him all her secrets? When Lars offers a weekend with Braelynn, can they both move on when the time is up? Will Lars share his sexual secrets with her without scaring her off? I loved the first book, Carnal Risk but I think I love this one more. It has a more suspenseful aspect to the story that makes it a little more exciting and that ending is, wow. I can't wait to see what the next book has in store. **Wicked Reads Review Team**

OH MY!!!!! What a wickedly fantastic book!!!!! I don't know how she does it but Kym Grosso's books just keep getting better!!! I have been a fan of this author for several years now and each book is better than the last!!! Whether it’s her paranormal series or the Club Altura series she pushes every good button there is!!! Lars Elliott is strong and even though he seems to think he’s a hard-a**, he’s really not as tough as he might want to be, at least with Brae. When he sees Dr. Braelynn Rollins get shot he is the first one there to rescue her and he stays with her in the hospital until she wakes up. And later he just can’t get her out of his mind so he tracks her down. Even though he’s well known for being an intrepid adventurer, he’s definitely in for one heck of a ride with the sexy marine biologist. Dr. Braelynn Rollins is in way over her head and trying very hard to do what she has to do without getting anyone else hurt, including herself. But when Lars Elliot won't leave her alone she may just have to give in to their attraction until she can accomplish what she promised she would. This story will keep you guessing all the way to the very end. And you might just need a couple of cold showers along the way, as well. CAN NOT WAIT for more of this series!!!

WOW…..What a book. Kym Grosso you never cease to amaze me. This book right here just might be one of my favorite books written by Kym. The talent this author has is amazing and everything she writes is perfection. Once I started reading I knew I wouldn’t stop till I was done. Lars and Brae’s chemistry is spot on. I love when I can actually feel the emotions and passion building between two charters as if I’m feeling it firsthand. Lars is pure alpha male, straight up drop your panties on the spot sexy do me right here and now. Brae what can I say I loved her. Brae’s a strong alpha female a perfect match for Lars never backing down form any situation she’s in. Holy smoke you could feel the flames igniting between these two and when they finally couldn’t fight it anymore it was an explosion of passion and hot sweaty sex. What an awesome read. What a story. The flow was spot on perfect pace kept you wanting more. One of these reads you wanted to get to the ending but didn’t want it to end. Loved it and can’t wait to see read the next book in this series.

Wicked Rush, Book 2, Club Altura Series. What a great follow up, prepare yourself to be set on fire by Lars Elliott OMG! Set in southern California, Lars is a live on the edge man, very dominating in all things work and personnel. He finds himself at the end of Carnal Risk, caught in a hail of gunfire rescuing a woman he doesn't know but seems to know him. Dr. Braelynn Rollins is a marine biologist, her life takes a deadly turn and she ends up mixed up in a world of danger and no way to escape from it. When Lars and Braelynn's path cross it's a steamy ride. Lars wants to know the truth what is Brae hiding and he's determined to find out at any cost. When he discovers that friends whom he trust may be in on what Brae is hiding, and putting her life in danger he will do anything to keep her safe. Lars isn't supposed to fall hard for a woman, it's not in his plans, there is something about Brae, he wants to draw her in to see what she is hiding and bring her into his world of fast living and pleasure. Brae has been attracted to Lars for some time and has desires that she's never been able to play out. Lars introduces Brae to his friend Seth and Club Altura ,which opens up a world she never knew existed. With danger surrounding them at every turn and passion that is off the charts, Wicked Rush is the perfect title for this book. The rush and fast paced of the secrets unfolding that Brae has been keeping with a lot of wickedness you don't want to miss out on this book .
