Rush by Nyrae Dawn



This new adult, male/male romance will capture the audience who fell in love with Nyrae Dawn's Games Trilogy.

For the love of the game.

Brandon Chase has always defined himself by one thing: football. Tough and athletic, he is a great college player who enjoys the hard hits and the sweaty grind of the gridiron. But when Brandon is injured, only one person can help him get back on track-a forbidden love he's desperately tried to put behind him. 

Alec Andrews has never quite forgiven Brandon for walking away when their friendship turned into something more. But he can't deny help to one of his closest friends. As the two spend the long, hot summer working together, their old attraction comes flooding back.

Now as Alec thinks about coming out to his conservative family and Brandon considers revealing he's a gay football player, the two men must be strong to fight for a love that could be the greatest rush of their lives.

Right off the bat this book feels angsty. You have 2 high-school/college kids who meet each other around 15 years old. Together, they discover their feelings, feelings of being "more than friends", only Brandon feels it will never work and that he will never be accepted in the football world. Brandon's head is a mess, so he pushes Alec away. 

Years later, tragedy befalls Brandon and he reaches out to Alec. Still having some of the same issues as when they were younger, but realizing life is too short to not live and love how they want, they work through their struggles. 


Brandon and Alec


What started out as angsty definitely turns sweet. This has become one of my favorite young m/m love stories.
