Review: Rush by Lane Hart


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Booksprout.

Rush is my second read from Lane Hart, but the first one where she's the sole author. This new adult (NA) reverse harem romance is set in college and involves three football-playing college students and one adorably dorky tutor who finds herself living with them for the summer as she tutors the guy she crushed on in high school in order to help save his spot on the team. Home in Miami for the summer while waitressing at her father's pizzeria has Skyler Sutton wishing she were back in her small dorm room in New York. When she gets a text message from Graham Lawson inviting her to North Carolina to tutor him, she readily agrees for as long as he actually puts in the work and doesn't expect her to do it for him like in high school. Living with Graham and his equally hot roommates and teammates--Charlie Ross and Tyson Pratt--proves to be far more interesting than any of them could've imagined!

This wasn't my first read featuring a reverse harem romance, and if it were just in terms of entertainment value, then this was entertaining to a degree. I know this has received a number of glowing reviews from other readers, so I'm finding myself in the minority. This required me having to suspend my disbelief with how all the relationships here developed as well as Skyler's transformation from cute and nerdy to hot and horny. Considering she didn't really have any sort of existing or ongoing connection with Graham, it was pretty difficult for me to comprehend what would drive her to drop everything--including time with her father--to tutor a guy she hasn't seen in years but actively stalks online. The connection between them was lacking, and all the other connections were based more on lust than actual love. Sadly, I didn't get a rush reading Rush. Instead, it felt rushed. Three stars. ♥
