Rush is something of a surprise. With a porn industry setting, I was expecting a fun, light-hearted romp, but what we have is a meaningful insight into the lives of two young people struggling to live the lives that have been mapped out for them.

As the son of a parents working in the adult entertainment industry, Max Levin has always known that his destiny is to take over the running of White Lace Productions, the empire his father has built up over the past thirty years. Along with his film director best friend Ben Lockwood, whom he's known since he was an eight year old boy, the pair have increased the profits of the company making it a market leader. When Max meets a young woman whilst scouting for new talent, he begins to question his career path. Is it time to branch out and follow his heart in more ways than one?

Everly Parker is just one semester away from graduating from law school. As the daughter of high flying lawyers, her parents have micro-managed her schooling to ensure she is a credit to themselves. Spending most of her time studying, Everly's had little time to date over the years but as she gets nearer to graduation, with a distraction called Max she begins to realise there is more to life than fulfilling her parents dreams.

Max Levin and Everly Parker appear to be as different as chalk and cheese, at opposite ends of the spectrum! It doesn't take long to realise, through the sparks of sexual chemistry that their lives are more similar than you think - a common bond, which isn't instantly recognisable to either of themselves. Both see in each other very different characteristics they want to emulate in themselves, but wires get crossed when both mis-understand what they want and expect from each other.

The author has created a fabulous, sexy reading experience and I'll admit I had to consult a few unfamiliar terms via the Urban Dictionary! The protagonists show depth of character and the supporting ensemble add to the overall fun of this highly entertaining book. This is my first book by Gina Gordon but will look out for more books from her in the future.
