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?
Meagan Mitchell has been looking for love in all the wrong places, or rather, in all the wrong men. There’s been Mr. Wrong, Mr. Bad, Mr. Sexy, and even Mr. Unavailable. Now she’s just looking for Mr. Safe. If he’s safe he can’t possibly break her heart. All Meagan wants is a husband to make a beautiful family with. Is that too much to ask?
Feeling that a change of scenery is in order, Meagan follows her best friend, Eva to Fort Benning, Georgia, where she will be stationed for the next few years. (Eva made this book for me. She’s feisty and outspoken. She’s my kinda girl.) The last thing Meagan expects is to meet Reed, Mr. Thrill. He jumps out of airplanes for a living, for God’s sake. He is most definitely NOT Mr. Safe, but does that mean he can’t be Mr. Right?
Feel the Rush could have probably been just as good, if not better, in half the words. It was a touch long for me.
Reed is your typical thrill seeking alpha male type. He’ll do just about anything. Jumping off cliffs, hang gliding, you name it and he’s up for giving it a try. He’s just not really looking to fall in love. Settling down has never really crossed his mind. Especially since he feels unworthy to do so. He’s harboring a deep dark secret. Surprise, surprise. I liked Reed – a lot. He puts himself all out there. He’s a ‘you get what you see’ kind of man. Straight forward and to the point. A commanding officer who looks out for him men like they’re family. I don’t know about you, but I find that to be incredibly sexy.
Meagan being Meagan, doesn’t want to give into Reed’s charms. She’s been burned waaaaay to many times. At nearly 30 and feels like she should have settled down already. Obviously this doesn’t fit in well with Reed’s life goals, so Meagan makes it her goal to keep Reed in the friend zone. Especially since he can’t remember the one night stand they had 8 years ago. Who does that? Not the one night stand, I know people do that but the forgetting about it. Who does that? Lucky for him he’s a good guy or I would have been livid. That’s just icky.
Meagan and I just did not click. She’s very stubborn yet whiney. She can’t see what’s right in front of her face and spent so much time doubting Reed that it made me a little batty. I know that deep down she wanted Reed to WANT to change for her. How many of us women wish the same thing day in and day out? Raise your hand if you do. Is your hand still down? Yup, you’re a liar. Everyone wants to feel like they’re reason enough for someone to change. That the love they have for you is so great that it can overcome anything.
Feel the Rush was a sweet, sweet story. I found myself rooting for Meagan to find true love from the very first page. I just wish that the pages that followed moved at a faster pace. The story was fairly predictable, but that’s what you’re looking for when you pick up this type of book. You want a happy ending, and that’s exactly what you’ll get.
