Ares and Alanna, I loved that I got to see characters from Ruin and Rush together, I think the story has way more than what I expected, it got to me. Ari trying to rebuild her life, and Ares is a jerk but he finds himself trying to overcome his issues. Their romance got me reading through the pages until I finish it. I love sport romance stories but this one went deeper.

After Ruin, I wanted more of the Kincaid family and now my wish has been granted in the very best way! Ares Kincaid is much like his brother Zeus, doesn't say much but has that brooding thing down perfectly. His first encounter with Ari Petrelli has him seeing red, not giving the recovering alcoholic the time of day. But as they have to now work together since he is the starting quarterback for the football team her father coaches and she is an assistant, let's just say sparks between them fly nonetheless, even if at first they are filled with a bit of distaste for the other. The chemistry is undeniable between Mr. Perfect and his Jailbird. I loved the way they both gave it as good as they got and Ari never backed down, determined to make her life her own no matter how attracted she was to Ares. Finding some semblance of respect for the other took time and in between all the snarky comments, a friendship is formed that was truly sweet. Ari has made so many mistakes in her life, but it took a man like Ares to truly understand the whys. All the fighting, the hurt they throw at each other more than once as their feelings become more than just a casual thing, often led to some incredibly sexy trysts that had a layer of tenderness neither one was prepared to handle. That push and pull was extremely enticing and I was hoping they could work their differences out. Samantha Towle is clearly on her game with Rush and I am completely enamored by the Kincaid family and the way they try to find their bit of happy despite their less than stellar upbringing. I honestly could not put this book down and am thrilled we will be getting more with Missy's story next. The characters in both books are genuine and thoughtful and full of fire. Each is finding their match in the most unexpected ways and it is true treat to get to be there with them. 5 solid stars!

Soooo you are probably aware I have issues with characters who have an addiction to alcohol, due to my own experience with an alcoholic ex. To say Samantha Towle took me by surprise with her portrayal of Arianna would be an understatement. For the first time, I actually felt empathy toward an alcoholic character, something I thought would never happen as I have a tendency to project my own issues. Arianna’s introduction to alcohol at an early age as a way to cope with the loss of her mother (in a way no child should have to encounter) followed by the emotional abandonment of the only other person in her life, her father. The thing that always astounds me is the lack of understanding where the addictive nature of alcohol is concerned. It is equally as addictive as other drugs but is socially acceptable. Why is that? It is this addictive quality accompanied by the emotional numbness Arianna was able to achieve which created the addiction. Although it takes a dramatic incident to open Ari’s eyes to her condition she is to be commended for recognising the problem and finding a way to live with the disease. Remember it isn’t curable, like all mental health conditions it can only be managed and most importantly you have to want to manage it. Ares reminded me a lot of myself where his attitude to alcohol was concerned and especially his view of alcoholics. It would seem Ari taught us both a lesson in empathy and not to put everyone into the same box. The chemistry between the pair is undeniable and unavoidable, even though Ares tries his best to deny it in the beginning. Although there are still hurdles to overcome before Ares and Arianna are able to move onto the path of happily ever after. Trust is a fundamental part of any relationship, although it is a precarious commodity especially when you have to battle your previous experiences in order to allow yourself to be vulnerable to another person. Rush is more than the relationship developing between Arianna and Ares; it shows there is a chance to reclaim your life from the demons on your back in the form of alcohol if you truly want to and are willing to undertake the demanding work in which to achieve it

Arianna Petrelli’s life is at a low. Coming out of rehab and trying to get her life back together her father who is the head coach for the Giants gives her a job. Ares Kincaid is the star quarterback for the Giants and no stranger to dealing with a recovering parent. Meeting Ari was the one thing Ares was not expecting nor was she like anyone he ever met. Ares is just the man to show Ari that she is than she sees but can Ares learn to trust in return. Started this book and couldn’t put it down.

4.5 Stars in my Sky! Arianna's had a really flipping terrible time of it recently. It's Rachel Green (from Friends) bad: "today, it's like there's rock bottom, then 50 feet of crap, then me!" She went to rehab and lost her dream job, so when her Dad offers her a position she of course says yes. Arianna's Dad is the coach for American football team, the New York Giants. To say her first day doesn't entirely go as planned is a HUGE understatement... Ares Kincaid is the Giants' star Quarterback and all round hottie (well he is Zeus's younger brother so what would you expect?)! He's infuriating and cocky, but loyal and full of all the usual Sam Towle BBF goodness. Ares has some pretty firm rules when it comes to certain issues, so Arianna's past may be tough for him to move past. I loved their chemistry. They are hot and heavy but also sweet and romantic. I REALLY wanted them to find a HEA. I love the Kincaid's. It was great to see more of the siblings in RUSH. Missy is all kinds of awesome!! Sam Towle really knows how to give good woo! She tugs at the heartstrings by making her readers smile, swoon and rant. More than anything she creates complicated and lovable characters. I received a review copy
