That one fateful night changed everything.

Now everyone hates me—everyone.
They stay far away.
It’s safer.

Drugs numb the pain, and sex pays for the drugs.

MY RATING: ☆☆☆☆ "RUSH INTO YOU" by Brianna Lee

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Complimentary copy provided by the author "Brianna Lee" in exchange for an honest review.

The beginning of this story threw me, I found it really hard to get into, it wasn't until about the third chapter that for me (and this is only my opinion) it started picking up and I could not put it down!! Plus it's not until the end when you are privy to Gabby's full story but you are thrown little pieces that you have to put together..

I loved this debut book, I loved the plot, it felt very original and I was hooked throughout.

The story is about Gabby. Gabby used to have it all she was popular in school had a good life. Then one night changed everything for Gabby. Gabby use drugs to numb the pain and sex to pay for the drugs. Then she meets Ryker is a tattooed hot motorcycle who Gabby notices actually sees ‘her’ and treats her with respect.

This debut novel by Brianna Lee had my adrenaline rushing at the prologue. I had to read more. My emotions were all over the place with the ups and the downs of Gabby and Rykers story. I could not put it down and it left me thinking about it for hours after finishing.

Rush Into You has a compelling synopsis and amazing cover that made me want to read it badly, but sad to say, I was greatly disappointed by this book.

Gabby used to have it all. Being a cheerleader and part of the debate team, she was popular in their town. That is, until everything changed that night. She used drugs and alcohol to numb away the pain. Everyone hates her now, that's why she was so surprised when Ryker, the bartender in the bar that night talked to her.

Rush Into You has been on my most anticipated novel list for the last few months. When I had the chance to read it prior to it's release, I jumped all over it. I wasn't disappointed. The first chapter made me say wow and I was hook from that point on.
I loved the idea of the story and the way Brianna Lee laid it out kept my attention. It was an emotional reading experience.
Gabby was a complex character and her predicaments seemed extreme, but still believable.

I really didn't know what I was getting into when I started Rush Into You, however, I was blown away with the intensity of this book. There was so much emotion that I just couldn't put it down once I started. The characters were phenomenal my heart really went out to Gabby and the struggles of her life. I just have to say I really love reading a book that I can relate to or connect with characters on so many levels and Brianna Lee did that for me. Then we have Ryker who is so HOT!!!

It's the honesty and rawness in a book that I look for. I long for. I need to see that poignant moment - that moment with so much intensity I might get burnt from reading...

Reading this book for me was like a whirlwind. I never knew where it was going or how the moments would play out. After the prologue, I was in tears. Tears I tell you! I felt as broken as Gabriella Carter was. I saw the ho

The life I lived was my purgatory, and I was only alive so that I could suffer for all of my sins.

Do you ever find those books that from the minute you read the blurb and see the cover you just KNOW they are going to be something special? It doesn’t happen too often for me, but from the minute I saw the cover reveal, I knew this was going to be one of those books. I am a lover of good writing and broken characters; the more damaged the better! Finding this combination from a debut author is rare

I really enjoyed this book. I liked that the main character started the book at the lowest point of her life and it's at the point that she meets the man who is going to change her life.

Gabby made a horrible decision after her high school graduation that took her from being popular to being a outcast. She doesn't deal with the downfall well, turning to drugs and alcohol to numb the guilt and hate she receives from everyone in her small town. Gabby gets her wake up and I applaud her

This is a story like no other I have read. Sad yet promising, reading about Gabby and her past was emotional and uplifting at the same time. Ryker seemed to come along just at the right time and I found myself rooting for their relationship. There's a rawness to the story and a realness that something that happened to Gabby could happen to anyone. I am so flattered to have been able to read this great story before the rest of the world has a chance. As a writer, Brianna Lee also taught me a lot ...more

What a ride! I was honored to beta read for Brianna and I'm sure glad she gave me the opportunity! I enjoyed this story from start to finish! Gabby is a character full of internal turmoil and a raging battle with herself and her addiction. She fights the mistakes of her past in an attempt to move on with her life, but at what cost? She was a complex character that left me with the feels. Ryker was a tattooed biker with a lot of heart and a lot of love for Gabby as their relationship grew.

Gabby had it all until she was left with nothing. She lost everything in her life, and it had caused her to spiral down into oblivion – lost and broken.

The poor judgment on that one fateful night had changed everything. Everyone hated her, judged her, and treated her like she was the worst person in town. Even a leper would have treated nicer. She was shunned.

Rush Into You is the debut novel from Brianna Lee, so I wasn't sure what to expect. This book was really good though and I really enjoyed it. The characters were great, and I really liked Brianna's writing style. This book had a great flow to it and I thought the pacing was perfect. I was hooked right away and didn't put this one down until I had finished. I was really surprised with how great of a book this was for being a debut novel, but af

I just started writing reviews for Red Cheek Reds, and had been a little disappointed by a few books I reviewed. I really get frustrated with grammatical and spelling errors, or anything regarding medicine that is incorrect (I’m a doctor). BUT then I read “Rush Into You” by Brianna Lee and I absolutely LOVED IT!!!

First and foremost, it totally passed my grammatical and spelling test, but then all the medical jargon and medication information was accurate and used in a great way. But most importa

You meet Gabby who had it all until one mistake turns her life upside down. She finds herself dealing with her problems by using drugs. Heroin was her drug of choice.

“Even though I didn’t get addicted by choice, this drug had turned into my escape, and the idea of leaving it behind scared the h*** out of me. If I couldn’t numb myself, I knew my memories and nightmares would be even worse.”

From the very first words, to the very last ones Rush Into You had me reading like there was no tomorrow. It is not to often that a book captivates the negative side and the growth that can come from admitting you have a problem by Brianna did it. It was powerful in it’s relentless effort to show all the sides of such a strong issue like drug abuse.

RUSH INTO YOU by Brianna Lee is a story of raw emotions and consequences for choices made. I just need to tell you that I enjoyed this story very much but the story deals with subject matter that some may find hard to read, even though it concerns a very real and prevalent problem of today.

From the very moment Gabby is introduced, I felt her agony and pain over one bad decision. This one decision destroys her life, comp

Rush into You is a story of phases of self-forgiveness and moving on. At the start Gabby cannot bare to do either, using drugs as her escape of her guilt-ridden nightmares and judgmental people. Her life is haunted by an error she made six years earlier on her eighteenth birthday, an error that ripped her away from her two best friends, and her parents. One night, one bad decision that spirals her out of control until she meets Ryker, a tender and unassuming Harley riding bartender. He shows her ...more

Let me just say that a Rush into You starts off with a bang. What a prologue! The prologue is three quarters of a page long. That's it. And I've never read a more intriguing yet powerful prologue. It took hold of me and I just kept going. And the rest of the book didn't disappoint.

When I started Rush into You and the further I got into it, I never would have thought it was from a first time author. This book had so much involved in it. Gabby was such a sad but powerful character and had so much

Brutally & highly emotional novel.

Rush Into You is the story of Gabby and Ryker. Gabby's world shattered in one night. It was a night that no one in her town allowed her to forget. To numb herself just to survive each day, she lost herself to drugs & sex.

Gabby's world changed the night she met Ryker. He is scorching hot, tattooed and drives a motorcycle, yet he's also the first person who doesn't know her history which allows him to truly see her beyond the pain and treats her as a perso

I give this book 4 full moons and recommend it to new adult readers out there. I do warn you…certain scenes may be graphic and very emotional. You may feel angry at times and at other times happy. But…be prepared for a ride inside a young woman’s head who has been through hell and is trying to better her life and still deal with her demons. Her guardian angel/knight helps her though. ****Oh…before I forget another thing about Ryker…involving the bedroom…one

Just okay. Interesting, but not great.

A unique plot, not too well executed. Would definitely have benefited from more research and better editing. The author has potential, but this outing is not stellar.

A good book with a great story. I just missed Gabby telling more about what happened during her time in jail and after up ultil she met Ryker. It gave me the felling of a hole in the story.
