Synopsis:Priscilla Winslow has a mouth that spits fiery sarcasm faster than I can throw a touchdown. But I’ve wanted her ever since I saw her in that Bo Peep outfit on Halloween. Yep, I’m a sheep who will follow that little hottie anywhere. There’s one problem…she hates me. Just because we ended up in jail and quite possibly ruined both our futures...
They’re changing the rules…
College Quarterback Preston Rush is living the dream. He’s leading his team to the National Championship and days away from earning a ‘first round draft pick’ label. When he meets Little Bo Peep at a Halloween party, he thinks he’s scored big. Instead, he wakes up in a jail cell with the corseted beauty. Because of him, she’s in trouble and when he discovers her true identity, he realizes, his nightmare is just beginning.
The always shooting-for-perfection Priscilla Winslow can’t believe her good deed has cost her a soccer career. Even though she knows it isn’t Preston’s fault, she can’t forgive him for the disaster that is her life. She just wishes her damn body would get the message. Every time she sees him, it’s all she can do not to kiss him.
When everything crashes down around him, Preston will have to decide if doing the right thing is worth losing it all.

  I received a review copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I do love that body...oh I mean the cover silly me. I can imagine that being Preston which I always love when I can picture something. The colours are very eye catching and very much dramatic which is what this story involves a lot of.

From the very first chapter I knew I was going to love this book as it already had me laughing out loud but it also had me hooked and throughout the book I just couldn't get enough of it. What I really enjoyed about Rush is that it's different to any of the other sport romance novels that I have ever read before which was quite refreshing. The romance side of the story was a slow builder which I actually liked as it made it feel more real as they kind of started as friends before they where in a relationship, but once they got it together the sparks flew. There was a few surprises thrown in this story which kept me intrigued. What interested me the most was the whole booster side of the story as it's something that's completely new to me plus it made the book all the more entertaining. The ending was what pulled the rating down a bit as it felt like it wasn't the end and just a bit rushed.

The two main characters are two of my favourite characters ever. Priscilla has to be one of the most strongest female character that I have had the pleasure of reading about as she doesn't take any crap and will fight (literally) for what she believes in. She was also an athlete which was nice to see as usually it's the guy that's the athlete but this time it was both so for me she came across as the perfect role model for girls. As for Preston I loved him also. He was pretty much the male version of Priscilla plus what really made him stand out was he was willing to give up his dreams to do the right thing which made him all the more endearing.

Overall, this was my first Shae Ross book but after reading this amazing book I know it won't be my last.
