Title: Rush Me
Author: Allison Parr
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

When post-grad Rachael Hamilton accidentally gatecrashes a pro-athlete party, she ends up face-to-face with Ryan Carter, the NFL’s most beloved quarterback.

While most girls would be thrilled to meet the attractive young millionaire, Rachael would rather spend time with books than at sporting events, and she has more important things to worry about than romance. Like her parents pressuring her to leave her unpaid publishing internship for law school. Or her brother, who’s obliviously dating Rachael’s high school bully. Or that same high school’s upcoming reunion. 

Still, when Ryan’s rookie teammate attaches himself to Rachael, she ends up cohosting Friday night dinners for half a dozen football players.

Over pancake brunches, charity galas, and Alexander the Great Rachael realizes all the judgments she’d made about Ryan are wrong. But how can a Midwestern Irish-Catholic jock with commitment problems and an artsy, gun-shy Jewish New Englander ever forge a partnership? Rachael must let down her barriers if she wants real love–even if that opens her up to pain that could send her back into her emotional shell forever.

Rush Me has extremely nutty characters. It was super funny, fun, and had lots of drama with romance. 

It's about this girl Rachael accidentally going into the wrong party. But while she's there she ends up meeting some pro football players, and one of them is a beautiful man that she has an instant attraction to. But he doesn't seem to like her, and she realizes that once he speaks she doesn't really like him either. But the next day she goes back to get her scarf, and low and behold she ends up making friends with some other football players that are friends of Ryan, the beautiful man.

From that point on, Ryan and Rachael are thrown together when she starts to meet up with the others players to hang out. And things start to progress with Ryan from a hate relationship to an actual relationship.  

I really liked this book, but I felt like parts of it where slightly boring, and made not a whole lot of sense in the book. So that's why overall it was okay. It's something that made me have a nice laugh for a while, and it didn't have a whole lot of angst or anything. And it does have an happily ever after!
