 Feel the Rush banner



The New York Times bestselling author of The Valentine’s Arrangement continues her sizzling series with a new novel of a plan that goes awry—in the arms of a soldier…

Picking the wrong men is a talent Meagan Mitchell has perfected. She’s sweet, confident, beautiful—and single. With her thirtieth birthday sneaking up on her, she needs a new plan. No more Mr. Wrongs or Mr. Bads, it’s time to find Mr. Safe…

Army Captain, Reed Porter, lives for the thrill—he’s an Airborne Jumpmaster with a rush addiction. He’s sexy and playful, and he quickly tempts Meagan with his rich Southern drawl and sinful looks. But slowing down and settling down are not in his agenda, making him exactly the type of man Meagan wants to avoid…

As their undeniable attraction heats up, Meagan has to decide if she’s willing to risk everything on a chance at love with a reckless charmer. Is she brave enough to bet her future—and her heart—on Mr. Thrill? Or will Reed finally learn that the feeling of a safe landing is just as addicting as the rush of the fall?

He lifted the T-shirt over her head and tossed it to the ground. Then he took a moment to just look at her. The woman who had taken up residence in his mind—in his dreams—for the last week was right in front of him, and he wanted to make sure to embed the real image of her in his mind, because the memory of her from that night long ago did nothing to exemplify what was in front of him now.

“You’re staring,” she whispered shyly.

“I know.”

She slid her legs behind her and raised to her knees in front of him. Her tits were right in his reach, her nipples pink and taut, and he wanted to lean down and pull one into his mouth and roll it between his lips—but he didn’t. He was more interested to see what Meagan had planned now that she was on her knees in front of him.

She inched her body closer to him, but even then she still wasn’t close enough—not as close as Reed needed her to be. Reaching out, she grabbed his hands in hers then slowly brought one  to her mouth and pulled his thumb between her lips, sucking it gently. His eyes were fixated on her plump lips as she swirled her tongue around his thumb then released it from her warm mouth. She moved his hands down, splaying his palms over her collarbone, down over her tits—barely giving him time to enjoy the soft mounds before she skimmed them over her stomach. Just as he thought she was leading him to her sweet spot, to where he was itching to touch—to feel her warm and wet, coating his fingers—she wrapped his hands around her waist and pressed her body against him.

The closeness he was craving seeped into him as her soft, bare skin fluttered over his.

“Isn’t it more fun to touch than to look?”

Oh, hell, he was in for it with this woman.


 I absolutely LOVED Feel the Rush by Kelsie Leverich!!!  I have had The Valentines Arrangement (the first book in this series) on my Kindle since it’s release day and I have never had a chance to read it.  I will make time now! After reading Feel the Rush, I am a huge fan of Kelsie’s!! The writing style was effortless. The story line was smoking hot (need to fan yourself to cool down) one minute to rip your heart out, stomp on it a few times then put it back the next minute.  I love those kind of stories!!  Even though Feel the Rush is in a series, it can definitely be read as a stand alone.

Megan is an awesome female character!  I loved the strength and sassiness she shows.  There were a few times that I wanted to slap some sense into her but I understood her apprehension.  Overcoming a previous heart-break is never easy.  Even though she had her doubts and questioned her feelings, she never came across as weak or wishy-washy which really was a nice change.  I feel like lately so many female leads are just kind of wishy-washy.  They appear weak and this was not the case with Megan.

Reed……Holy F*ing Hotness!!! He has become one of my favorite book boyfriends.  I loved the alpha male, adrenaline junkie, hot man that he is!! But you could also see that he had his own demons to face and I was totally intrigued by what made him tick.  I loved all the emotion he had waiting under the surface.

I was hooked from the very first page until the very last.  I laughed and I cried and I really enjoyed every minute of it!  Oh and the Epilogue……heart wrenching! I can not wait to read more in this series!!
