Publisher's Summary

She’s the one girl he can’t have. 

With his dimpled grin and devilish charm, firefighter Gavin Bailey is hot as a five-alarm fire and twice as dangerous. The youngest of five brothers, he’s the daredevil of the family. Until the unexpected strikes and he finds himself sidelined. 

Skylar Stanley’s life didn’t just fall apart. It exploded. Spectacularly. Dropped by her publisher and her agent, and dumped by her boyfriend, she suddenly has no place to live and a career circling the drain. She comes home to the quirky, feuding small town she hasn’t lived in since kindergarten to pick up the pieces. And hopefully find her mojo. 

Gavin would happily help Skylar get her groove back - in and out of the bedroom - except for one big problem. Her dad is Gavin’s boss, mentor, and the closest thing he’s ever had to a father. 

As much as Gavin loves racing headlong into danger, Skylar is a risk of a different kind. One that he’s determined to avoid. 

But the line between friends and lovers gets awfully blurry, and Gavin just might find the one thing that truly scares him.  

Losing her. 

Author’s note: The wild child of the Bailey clan meets his match in a shy writer who’s braver than she thinks. A sexy, feel-good story with pranks and shenanigans, Bailey-style brotherly love, a rescue kitten, plus delightfully dirty fantasies come true and a happily-ever-after that will make your heart burst with sunshine and rainbows. 

The Bailey Brothers series is meant to be heard in order. Start with book one, Protecting You.

When You Know, You Know

Overall 4 stars
Performance 4.5 stars
Story 3.5 stars

The Bailey Brothers is such a fun series. I have loved getting to know each brother and also get more clues to the origins of the whole Bailey/Haven feud. The cameos from all the previous couples and characters is the best and I love seeing further into their happily ever afters. It's not necessary to read the previous books to enjoy this one, but readers/listeners will have more backstory if they do.

This friends with benefits/forbidden romance is sexy with a capital S. It's instalust from the very memorable meet cute and keeps building until things deliciously boil over. Gavin and Skylar are opposites, but they complement each other well. There isn't too much angst in this one and even though I'm not generally a fan of the reformed manwhore hero, I thought Rushing In was an enjoyable and sexy read. The narration by Stephen Dexter and Savannah Peachwood was great and I especially loved Savannah Peachwood's performance as Skylar. I enjoyed both performances and love the varied and unique voices they give to each character. I'm really looking forward to Logan's story next (especially after that epilogue!), but it's Levi's book that I'm really dying for.

Beautiful, steamy story with sexy voices to narrate

Gavin Bailey is the stuff dreams are made of. Gavin’s smiley, happy go lucky attitude is so endearing and Stephen Dexter does an excellent job bringing him to life, all with a sexy voice. Skylar is adorable, sweet and so quirky that you just fall in love with her. And Savannah Peachwood does an amazing job at voicing Skylar. This book hits you in all the feels, love, happiness, sadness and suspense. It is full of humor, wisdom and love. Reading the story was wonderful and I fell in love immediately but listening to it, to Gavin and Skylar come alive, was awesome and made the book come alive.

Excellent story of Gavin and Sky

Stephen Dexter and Savannah Peachwood do a great job of bringing the characters of Gavin and Sky to life. Stephen captures the fun side of Gavin while Savannah represents the shy nature of Sky but also her building confidence throughout the book. They put emotions into the characters and didn't miss a beat throughout the entire narrative.

This story has everything you've come to expect from the Baileys and company - More clues to the Eliza mystery, pranks, new Logan bro-isms, Gram wisdom, love, friendship, and our favorite characters. Also, the three brothers spoiling and loving Princess Squeaker - Swoon!

We get a more in-depth look at the youngest, fearless Bailey - what drives him and what he's thinking. It also introduces the very intriguing Skylar with her anxious, shy nature. Friends-to-lovers, it was great to watch Sky come out of her shell and become braver while hanging out with Gavin.

"Now? I wasn’t afraid. He’d pushed me out of my comfort zone in so many ways. He hadn’t set out to show me I was brave, but he had. Because that was the thing, when I was with him, I did feel brave. It was like he sucked all the fear out of the room and made it disappear."

I didn't want to put this book down until I got the very last page. Another stellar book by Claire Kingsley - and that epilogue!

Greatness

This is such a great friends to lovers story. We have our imaginative writer and our daredevil baby brother finding their way together. Throw in some suspense from our running background mystery and the hilarity of townies and pranks, it’s a perfect listen.

Both narrators were perfect for these characters. They did great jobs conveying the little things that made these characters unique. The accents and tones were on point. Everything from the print edition was magnified here.

Great Addition to the Series!

Rushing In is a great addition to the Bailey Brothers series! Youngest brother Gavin meets his true match in his boss’ daughter…but this isn’t your typical boss’ daughter trope! Skylar is a successful suspense author, and her chemistry with Gavin is off the charts! Their “meet awkward” is definitely unique, and in Kingsley style their HEA is delightful! Antics abound as they grow closer…and I believe we’re getting closer to finding out what’s behind the Bailey-Haven feud…more clues were revealed.

Narration was very good, and I highly recommend Rushing In!

Sweet Small Town Romance

Skylar and Gavin’s story is my new favorite of the Bailey brothers! Skylar and Gavin were perfect for each other. I loved how they met and how their friendship progressed into so much more. This book had me laughing with their latest prank on the Havens, crying and swooning. I love Gram and her heart to heart conversations.

Savannah Peachwood was a perfect voice for Skylar and Stephen Dexter did a great job as our daredevil Gavin. They brought these characters to life in a different way from when I originally read the book. Highly recommend this book and the rest of the Bailey Brother series.

Gavin and skylar

I loved their story, only thing is I didn’t feel that the narrator for Gavin matched what I felt he should have sounded like. But overall I loved their story and I was so excited for Gavin’s story!

A perfect picture of opposites attract

Gavin & Skylar were so much more than I was expecting. Skylar’s shy, quiet, & reserved demeanor was a perfect combination for Gavin’s outgoing, loud, & extravagant self. They were the perfect balance. He brought her out of her shell & she helped him slow down & enjoy the little things. Like I said, a perfect picture of opposites attract.

I loved the voices picked for this book. Stephen Dexter & Savannah Peachwood did excellent

absolutely amazing story

5+*
Gavin (otter) is the risk taker of the baileys a firefighter dedicated to his job.
Skylar has decided her dad's place is the best place to go after the break up with her boyfriend.
Two opposites that are drawn together.
This book was amazing I've loved Gavin's personality since the start of the series and his book didn't disappoint.
I loved the antics of him be prepared to laugh out loud and not been able to put the book down.
