When post-grad Rachael Hamilton accidentally gate-crashes a pro-athlete party, she ends up face-to-face with Ryan Carter, the NFL's most beloved quarterback.
While most girls would be thrilled to meet the attractive young millionaire, Rachael would rather spend time with books than at sporting events, and she has more important things to worry about than romance—like her parents pressuring her to leave her unpaid publishing internship for law school. But when Ryan's rookie teammate attaches himself to Rachael, she ends up cohosting Friday-night dinners for half a dozen football players.
Over pancake brunches, charity galas, and Alexander the Great, Rachael realizes all the judgments she'd made about Ryan are wrong. But how can a Midwestern Irish-Catholic jock with commitment problems and an artsy, gun-shy Jewish New Englander ever forge a partnership? Rachael must let down her barriers if she wants real love—even if that opens her up to pain that could send her back into her emotional shell forever.

Rush Me is a sweet love story about an unlikely couple. There is nothing too deep or surprising in the story line. I almost turned it off after the first chapter because of the overly perky reading but Allison Parr’s story was entertaining enough to look past the horrible narration.
12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!
Among those books that fall under contemporary romance this listen is at the top. I totally got sucked into this book and this story of the hot NFL player Ryan and equally hot, loud mouthed, nerdy girl Rachel. I liked both characters and found the development of "them" to be funny, interesting and hot. Their sexual build up was slow and steady and when they finally hook up, I was relieved. This is up there with Rachel Gibson. This was a totally absorbing read and I'm so glad I downloaded this!
When the sexy womanizing NFL star starts to fall for Rachel. I think he falls for her first but is so intimidated by this young, sassy, independent girl . Unlike so many adoring fans, she is not impressed by his NFL status and she calls him on his crap and tells him like it is. And while Rachel was called bitchy a couple of times in this audio, I have to say - her character was refreshing and real. While there is much bravado behind her banter - that is what I liked most - she is young and trying to make it on her own. She is proud, intelligent, stubborn and scared. She felt very real.
No but I really liked her. She gave a lot to this recording. I think she was great as Ryan and Rachel. I would gladly listen to her again.
Yes and I pretty much did! I lost sleep but it was worth it. I hope this author writes more books. I am a fan!
Absolutely worth the download!
