Ryan Harper used to love a girl named Jade Forsyth, until she chose someone else.
Walking away from the only woman he’s ever loved and clawing his way up from the bottom, he’s on the cusp of making it in the world of professional MMA. He’s spent his life being put down because of his working class roots, but now he’s made something out of himself. Something he can be proud of.
When a chance meeting on a Melbourne street sends his unrequited love spiralling into his life once more, he’ll do anything to show her there’s more to her—and life—than how much money is in her bank account, the clothes she wears, and how much overtime she puts in at work. Life is for living…and loving.
But when the rush wears off, will Jade see his feelings are real? Or is history destined to repeat itself?
From Amity Cross comes Rush, a sizzling new instalment in the Internationally best selling MMA fighter romance series, The Beat and The Pulse.
Jade Forsyth is a workaholic but today her boss has told her go home. Take a break -- have some fun. She doesn't even remember that word or how to. In fact her whole life she has been working. Working to pay for college, working to go flying up the corporate ladder. Her finance expects it. He has a certain type of woman he wants on his arm. Wanting to please him she is the perfect woman or at least is trying to be ... so why did she just find him in their bed with another woman? Shattered .. nowhere to go and no one to turn to -- her high society friends as they call themselves are not really her friends .. what now.
Ryan Harper can't believe his eyes -- Jade standing alone on the sidewalk and looking lost? Where in the world did she come from. He was the bad boy who was always in the friend zone. Not good enough -- no enough money -- never going to happen back in the day and not likely now but leaving an old friend in need is not what Ryan is about. He just won't fall back into the Jade trap. He has too much on his plate waiting for his shot at the PROs.
I LOVED this book -- This was not the fall head over heels in love and thank you hot dude and sassy girl who is put in her place. NOPE ... this is a fall from high society what you think is important and getting slapped into reality story and I LOVE IT. I wanted to beat the hell out of Jade myself. I don't belong on her side of the tracks so reading a character like her just keeps me turning the pages waiting for the fall and the I'm so stupid I should have seen then what I see now. YUP!
Ryan is the most genuine and glorious character. He heart is huge -- his will is strong and yet he doesn't let the woman he can't forget use him. I also love that we get to hear from old friends .... yes ... yes we do! WHOOP WHOOP! If you can't tell I'm a huge fan of this series. I couldn't be more thrilled with this release. Great story line and exceptional read.
Thank you for the ARC
