RUSH will always hold a special place in my heart. When I wrote the book, we had no out college football players. It was after the fact that players like Conner Mertens and Michael Sam came out--Sam coming out not long before Rush was released. We've come so far for equality, but there is still so much father to go.
If you haven't read Alec and Brandon's story, now is the perfect time to give it a shot. I hope you enjoy Alec and Brandon's journey as much I as did.
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
