One More Day…

I can't believe it's only one day until RUSH releases. It feels like I've been waiting forever for this book to be released and now it's almost here. I've said it a million times so I know you guys know how much this book means to me. It's full of more heart than probably any book I've written. Want, and longing, and boys who just want to live their lives and love each other. I'll stop there for today because I'm sure I'll be rambling enough in my post for tomorrow. I have some fun things to share with you today that you're welcome use, if you'd like.

Also, here's another one of the songs from my RUSH playlist, Outlaws of Love by Adam Lambert. Love the words to this song. It's so powerful.



RUSH is getting some really great early reviews. Here's a snippet of one that made me cry. It's so gorgeous.

"This might be Nyrae Dawn's most perfect story. Perfect in it's realness. Perfect in the way it reaches inside the reader and never lets go. Perfect in the way she crafted these characters, and brings you inside their pain, their joy, their struggles, their victories, their strength and their fear. I was wrong to look at this story as a M/M love story. Perhaps for classification purposes, this story has to be labeled, but if the reader takes anything away from this story, it should be that we don't need those labels. Books might, but people do not. It's just a love story. It's a love story about two people just trying to figure it all out."

Read the full review at Angie and Jessica's Dreamy Reads.


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.

"Devastatingly relevant, engaging, sexy, and ultimately heroic. Rush is the kind of book that will keep you reading late into the night." -J.H. Trumble, author of Don't Let Me Go

"Every word was packed with so much emotion that at times I felt like my heart couldn't take it anymore. I want my kids to read it, my students to read it, everyone to read it."--Julie Prestsater author of Without You

"Alec and Brandon's story is touching, heartfelt, and real. Nyrae Dawn had me riveted by page one, and the hopeful ache in my chest didn't leave until I finished the book. You will laugh, cry, and cheer for these boys."--Ellis Carrington
