Unexpected Rush by Jaci Burton – Amy’s Review

As a fan of Jaci Burton’s Wild Rider’s Series it seemed like a no brainer to try another of her series.


3 stars


For Barrett Cassidy, playing defense for the Tampa Hawks is a dream come true. And now he may have discovered his dream woman. Harmony Evans, once the sweet, gawky teenage sister of his best friend and teammate has grown into a smart, gorgeous woman with moves he finds hard to resist. But he knows he can’t get involved with his best friend’s sister—it’s guy code.

Harmony has always gone after what she wants with single-minded determination, from her independence to her education to her career in interior design. She never expected her youthful crush on Barrett to develop into something deeper. And she’s not about to let some ridiculous man rules or her brother stand in her way.

When the chemistry is this combustible, lines tend to get crossed. And when Barrett and Harmony’s secret gets out, it just might be game over…

I love a good brother’s best friend and his little sister story.  The tabooish nature of the relationship plus it’s very cloak and dagger.  It can make for an extremely entertaining story.

While Unexpected Rush was written flawlessly I didn’t see anything new in the storyline.  It was the same book I’ve read over and over with no real originality.

Barrett wasn’t the over the top alpha I’ve come to expect in a Jaci book.  I had a hard time connecting with him.  Though his loyalty to family and his team was inspiring.

Harmony was an awesome character.  She was sweet and sassy.  She was devoted to those she loved and would do anything for them. She was her own woman and I really felt connected to her.

Overall a good book just lacked that extra something that would have made it amazing.
