book blurb

Kingston Rush

Becoming a goaltender in the NHL is the only thing I ever wanted for myself.

Goal accomplished.

Two years ago, I was the best goalie in the league, for the third time. With our Stanley Cup win, the Austin Arrows were on top of the world. Nothing could possibly bring us down.


Turns out, even when you’re at the top, you can find yourself back at rock bottom.

But it gets worse.

Not only did the team fall from grace, then I did too. I was accused of something I didn’t do. And now I’m being forced to repair my tarnished reputation.

Only I don’t know how to do that.

When the suggestion is made for me to pull off this ruse for the media, I know what I’m getting into. I also know there’s only one right answer.

But it’s complicated, and I’m not the only one who could get hurt.

There’s only one major problem.

I can’t say no.


“… And watching as we lost six of the seven preseason games gave me a bit of heartburn, as well, but I’m holding out hope for this year. We’re skating well, have solid puck handling, the team looks strong. Much stronger than last year, but we’ve still got a long way to go.

Admittedly, I couldn’t let go of some of my key players, no matter how much of a disgrace they’ve been to the team. But I’ve got my eye on one of them in particular right now. Kingston Rush, a.k.a. Mount Rushmore.

Here’s a guy who was the league’s top goalie two years ago, with three Vezina Trophies under his belt. Quite frankly, he’s a beast and a huge asset to this team—when he’s on his game, that is—so I’m hoping a little extra attention might go a long way.

I have an idea of what got his jock strap in a twist; I simply need to dig deeper to get to the root of it. Something, or rather someone, turned him from the easygoing, mysterious badass to an instigator who started picking fights with everyone.” – Phoenix Pierce, Owner – Austin Arrows

my review

 5 Stars

I’m standing on my blog soap box and telling all of you romance junkies that you absolutely must read Rush.  Get it right now.  You’ll love this book.  I PROMISE!! I seriously want to hand out copies of this book to everyone I know or see.

Because Nicole Edwards knocked it out of the park with her latest release.  Wait, you do that with baseball – so she scored a hat trick?!?  Won the Stanley Cup?!  Whatever the saying mght be, this book freaking rocks – it was so amazing that I couldn’t put it down and I’ll definitely re-visit Rush and Ellie. Holy freaking hotness!!

Here’s the deal.  If you’ve read One Million Tiny Pieces (and if you haven’t you should) then you know all about Phoenix’s hockey team the Austin Arrows. What you don’t know until Rush, is that they went from kicking some serious ass to being the worst team in the NHL.  The Austin Arrows Series is going to focus on the teams various players, the drama in their lives and their romances.

I don’t want to spoil anything about Rush and Ellie but in my opinion, everything about the first book was AWESOME.  Their romance is hella hot and I’m now addicted to hockey players on the Arrows.  I want to get to know them all – I cannot wait to read more!!

The bottom line is this.  I can never decide which of Nicole’s books I love more, her erotic romances or her contemporary. She excels at both and either way as a reader, I win.  Rush was a fun, sexy romance between two appealing and lovable characters. Their storyline was realistic and captivating. Plus everyone that I was introduced in this book was engaging which left me craving more.  It’s a win all around.  Definitely start this series today!
