*Blog Tour and Review* The Season: Rush by Nicole Edwards


“…it’s a perfect mix of sport and sexiness the chemistry between the two main characters is off the chain it’s like the first half of the book is foreplay then BOOM seriously is there nothing this woman can’t do and do well.” ~Lisa W.

“…it was everything I ever wanted in a sports romance and it was hot. …I have a new goalie that I’m in love with” ~Jackie W.

“I devoured this book yesterday…… RUSH by Nicole Edwards is a MUST read !!!!! You are going to LOVE Kingston and Ellie !!!!!!” ~H.P. Davenport
“Well, Nicole you did it again. Loved Rush and Ellie that women is amazing. I cannot wait for more.” ~Kathy A.




“…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

Coming August 16, 2016
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.

WOW! I could almost start and end the review right there. This book was like everything ive come to expect from Nicole Edwards and nothing ive seen from her before. Makes no sense… yeah, yeah. *rolls eyes* When I think NE, my mind goes to cowboys, private investigators and sex clubs. Not so much hockey players and single mothers with 12 yo daughters. But I think this goes to show just what a strong author Nicole really is – the woman could write the nutrition facts on a box of cereal and make it a bestseller, IMO. Now… on with the review. 😉

Characters – Kingston (Mount Rushmore) Rush was on top of the world, winning the Stanley Cup championship as the “Goalie God” of the Austin Arrows. Lately though, the team has been having a rough couple of years – landing ALL the way down at number 30… dead last. Add to that some random chick spouting lies to the media about him and his life is just looking worse all the time.
Ellie – co owner of The Penalty Box bar and sister of Spencer “Optimus” Kaufman, the beloved Captain of the Austin Arrows and best friend of one Kingston Rush. (Can you see where this is headed?)

Story – the story begins after the fall from grace of the mighty Austin Arrows, Stanley Cup champions. They have now had two horrible seasons coming in last place and the owner, Phoenix (from A Million Tiny Pieces) is ready to bust some heads. He and the the coach, PR person and legal counsel have devised a plan to get the team back on track but it involves working on each individual member of the team – starting with Kingston. I wont give away any spoilers but its complicated and wonderful and written as only Nicole Edwards can write it from here on out. I loved it!

Absolutely 5***** WickedGoodStars for Rush: The Season by Nicole Edwards!

Side note: Nothing says you must read A Million Tiny Pieces before you read this book, but I really think you would enjoy Rush more (no pun intended) if you did. You would understand the relationship with Phoenix, Tarik and Mia and how they came to be. If you dont and go back to read it later, it will be spoiled for you.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nicole Edwards lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, their three kids, and four rambunctious dogs. When she’s not writing about sexy alpha males, Nicole can often be found with her Kindle in hand or making an attempt to keep the dogs happy. You can find her hanging out on Facebook and interacting with her readers – even when she’s supposed to be writing.
Nicole also writes contemporary/new adult romance as Timberlyn Scott.
Nicole would love to hear from you!
