Feel the Rush
A Hard Feelings Novel
The New York Times bestselling author of The Valentine’s Arrangement continues her sizzling series with a new novel of a plan that goes awry—in the arms of a soldier….
Picking the wrong men is a talent Meagan Mitchell has perfected. She’s sweet, confident, beautiful—and single. With her thirtieth birthday sneaking up on her, she needs a new plan. No more Mr. Wrongs or Mr. Bads. It’s time to find Mr. Safe….
Army captain Reed Porter lives for the thrill—an Airborne Jumpmaster with a rush addiction. He’s sexy and playful, and he quickly tempts Meagan with his rich Southern drawl and sinful looks. But slowing down and settling down are not on his agenda, making him exactly the type of man Meagan wants to avoid.…
As their undeniable attraction heats up, Meagan has to decide if she’s willing to risk everything on a chance at love with a reckless charmer. Is she brave enough to bet her future—and her heart—on Mr. Thrill? Or will Reed finally learn that the feeling of a safe landing is just as addicting as the rush of the fall?
Plot: 5. I love a hot military romance. What was really interesting about this one was that Meagan and Reed have a past—a hot one. Years before, they had a one night stand and fate/luck whatever you want to call it, brings them together again. When Meagen’s best friend gets transferred to a different base, Meagan decides that a change of scenery will do her some good and maybe she’ll be able to find a “safe” man. Guess who her new neighbor is. Yes, the ridiculously sexy, thrill-seeking hottie, Reed Porter. While Meagan remembers him, but he doesn’t remember her. The feeling of watching lovers reconnect was amazing.
Sex: 4. I was able to quickly connect with the characters, I was able to really “feel” the build up to the inevitable. (It’s a romance novel. Of course there is sex in it!) I loved the well-paced the story was and how the sex got progressively hotter and hotter. The scenes were believable and intimate and had me blushing at times.
Overall: 5. Mrs. Leverich really knows how to weave a believable and well written story. The story had me laughing in places, holding my breath at times and wanting to throw my Kindle across the room once or twice. Meagan and Reed seemed so familiar to me, like old friends or neighbors and I was rooting for them, despite the twists and turns that they had to deal with. Several new characters are introduced and I can’t wait to see who the next book is going to be about.
