Olympic gold medalist skiers Jayla Stone and Rush Remington have been best friends for years. They’ve seen each other at their best and worst and have kept each other’s secrets without fail. Only there’s one secret Rush has kept close to his chest. After months of introspection, Rush realizes he’s been filling his bed but not tending to his heart. He’s changed his womanizing ways, and the only woman who can fill his heart has been right by his side all this time.
Years of intimate conversations and the sharing of hopes and dreams collide when Rush reveals his secret, and one toe-curling kiss changes everything between Rush and Jayla. They’re no match for the passion that kiss ignites, or the pull of true love. But being Rush’s best friend means knowing all about his revolving bedroom door—and Jayla has a secret of her own that could jeopardize her career and her relationship with Rush. Even their love may not be enough to overcome Rush’s past or secure Jayla’s future.
Thank you to Shaz for letting me take part in this tour. Anyone who regularly reads this blog must know by now that I am quite the fan of Melissa’s Love in Bloom Series.
Rush is very similar to Blake, from the first Love in Bloom book. He lives fast and hard. He has a different woman every night. Then one morning after another sleepless night something snapped and he realised he didn’t want to be like that. He realised he was looking to fill a void that could only be filled by one person. I really enjoyed seeing the other side of Rush and watching him grow throughout the book.
Rush and Jayla have been best friends since she was 13 and Jayla has been in love with him pretty much ever since. She is stubborn, determined and hard working. She is also very clever. All she’s ever wanted is to ski so when something threatens to wreck that she panics. Jayla worked extremely hard to get to where she is and she won’t let anything ruin that. She can only see her self as a competitive skier she can’t imagine what she will do if she can’t do that or who she will be.
This book has a bit of everything love, romance humour and drama. The ending was also super sweet. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
