The favor seemed simple: Keep my new stepsister out of trouble for one summer.
I've never met Grace Lee, but Mom tells me she's a quiet and artsy college student with a troubled past. When I agreed to let her stay with me, I thought it was no big deal. I expected to share my apartment with a sullen girl who'd spend hours locked in her room.
I didn't expect a walking fantasy determined to make me lose my cool.
I didn't expect a woman with secrets so dark, so deep, I'd throw away everything if it would save her from the past.
Rushing in to do this favor is turning my life upside down - and not just because Grace is temptation personified. Keep her out of trouble? Grace is the trouble. And I want in.
Rushing In is a standalone novel and the second in The Blackhawk Boys series.
Football. Secrets. Lies. Passion. These boys don't play fair. Which Blackhawk Boy will steal your heart?

This audiobook was well done, it just seemed to be a little drawn out in my opinion. Also, I had a little trouble connecting with the characters. The heroine seemed to be kind of a whiner at times. I think perhaps it is that I'm from a different generation than the characters that made the characters a little off putting.
"4.5 'I'm So Thirsty' Stars!"
I loved this second book in the Blackhawk Boys series! This opposites attract/forbidden love was funny, angsty, heartbreaking, hopeful, and sexy. Grace has a past she is not proud of and is trying to put it behind her. She is working hard to be the woman she wants to be, but unfortunately her past keeps following her. Her father is overly concerned and protective of Grace. He arranges for her to stay with his new wifes' son while they are on their honeymoon. The surprise is when they meet, Grace remembers Chris from High School but he doesn't remember her. Grace has changed her appearance and has left that embarrassing time behind her, and when the chemistry sparks between them, she doesn't want to lose it by reminding him of who she really is. Chris is the ultimate thoughtful, kind, and sexy man. He has a reputation for always being in control, that is until he meets Grace. He is so attracted to her, but is trying to be the responsible caretaker that Grace's father asked him to be, and it's driving him crazy. Grace is so different than the kind of woman he usually goes for, but she is bringing out the passion he didn't know he had. There are running story lines from the first book that add drama along with Graces past that is following her. The issues Ms Ryan tackled have no easy answers or solutions. She did a fabulous job showing empathy for each character and their struggles. I loved both Chris and Grace as they grew into the strong, confident, passionate people who were perfect for each other. I really loved Summer Roberts narration. I thought her delivery was spot on and passionate. Tyler Donne did a good job as well but I needed a bit more inflection at times especially when Grace was driving Chris crazy. Overall I really enjoyed the performance of both narrators, and thought they really complimented this story. The epilogue had me in tears and was the perfect ending, for now, to this story. I definitely recommend this book!
"Not worth the credit"
I was very disappointed with this purchase. The whole book was from a negative view. The characters were depressing
"I have never been so emotionally invested"
I have never been so emotionally invested in a book!
Wow!! This book absolutely floored me. I was so emotionally invested that I could feel Grace’s feelings: the innate fear, the yearning to be accepted, the smart a$$ mouth to make her seem like she doesn’t care, the fragile child locked away, the woman who wanted nothing more than to make her father proud. I loved every bit of Grace’s story.
And then there was Chris… I am always drawn to the “bad boys” in romance novels. The “alpha males”. Chris is the inherent “good guy”. The boy next door. The all star athlete. The hero. The panty melter!! He swept me off my feet early on, and that never changed.
I’m looking forward to reading the next chapter of Grace’s story! (*hint, hint, wink, wink Lexi!!!)
"Great taboo romance"
Rushing In is another great addition to the Blackhawk Boys series by Lexi Ryan
I usually avoid the step-brother troupe, but with this audiobook that was only a small component to the story overall
This one ticked all the boxes for me: well written, great characters, lots of sass, plenty of angst and a swoon-worthy hero and most importantly the story is told from dual POV
The narration by Tyler Donne and Summer Roberts was excellent and they sounded age-appropriate for their characters.
Overall an enjoyable addition to the series and I can't wait for the next book!
"Totally Disappointing !"
It was too long, too dragged out and I was so annoyed with Grace (GiGi) I wanted to slap her by the middle of the listening.
I won't even purchase the 3rd installment. The first book "Spinning Out" was a great listen,and it had me interested. "Rushing In" was just a waste. Grace has a past she would have liked to forget. She has had therapy, and still she wrapped herself in a negative bubble. Everyone around her gave her positive influences and still she lived in her past and kept in her negative bubble. She had such a low self esteem.
Not good, I wasn't impressed with Graces narrator. Chris's either they were stale and no emotions.
Narrators could help this listen. It was the book that was the drag along
Don't waste you money or credit on the book
I loved reading the book, and it was so cool to listen to it!
Definitely going to pick up the other Blackhawk Boys and give them a listen.
