A girl who has everything. A guy who has everything to lose.
Some things can’t be…
Like there has ever been any doubt which sorority my family expects me to pledge. I’m a third-generation legacy. On the first day of rush, I realize I’m in trouble. I’m not like the other girls in the house. But as long as my parents control my college funds, resisting is futile. Until Zach, the live-in houseboy, who’s quite possibly the hottest guy I will ever meet, serves me a cupcake and flashes me a sympathetic look. With one enigmatic smile, he flips my heart and my world upside down. My parents will cut me off if they even suspect I’m interested in a house guy. But I can’t stay away from him. And so I pledge the house for all the wrong reasons.
Living in a sorority? I get flipped a load of crap about being a live-in servant, the help. Easy access to the hottest girls on campus? Not with the unbreakable rule—get caught with one of the girls and you’re fired. Immediately. Lose this job and I can’t afford college. I sure as hell can’t ask my parents for help. They wish I’d never been born. Considering what I did, I don’t blame them. I’ve learned to think of the girls like sisters. Until Alexis pledges the house. Now sister is the last thing on my mind.
*** Standalone novel. No cliffhanger. ***
This is a contemporary romance with mature themes, language, and situations. Readers should be over 17!
If you enjoyed Gina Robinson’s Reckless Series, you’ll love Rushed. Rushed takes place at the same university during the same academic year. Just on the other side of campus, the Greek side. You’ll recognize some of the campus events and a favorite Reckless character makes a cameo appearance.
I received a digital copy of this book free from the author and netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
It took me a while to actually finish this book. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Maybe this book doesn’t appeal much to me. The writing style of the author is hands on superb, but maybe it’s the plotline that didn’t entirely convince me to rate it higher.
Rushed is a typical contemporary book that mainly centers on two college characters living in a sorority house. I have nothing against sorority boys that work to serve the sorority house, but Zach isn’t a boy character that make me swoon. Alright, he’s incredibly hot and all but his character lacks something that I can’t figure out.
Alexis, on the other hand, is an okay character. But sometimes she’s too pushy and a little bit of flirt that she basically doesn’t care about anything other than to be with Zach all the time.
I think the setting and the way the sorority life was emphasized here is also not realistic. I mean, I haven’t been in a sorority but the rules and their way of doing things inside the sorority house seems a bit exaggerated.
The romance is good but I don’t think it really made me swoon. It didn’t pull out any emotion in me all throughout. The only thing that makes me like this book is the writing style of the author which is no doubt really good.
My Rating for this Book: 3 Stars
