All the Right Moves

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 social work. 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…

We get Barrett and Harmony’s story in Unexpected Rush. Barrett is one of the Cassidy brothers, a professional football player and Tucker’s twin (from a previous installment). Barrett and Harmony’s brother, Drake, have been best friends for years. So Harmony’s want and desire for Barrett is not a “new thing”. The cat and mouse game between the two of them is sweet, especially having both of their POVs and knowing how they both want the other. Barrett is adamant about his reasons, but he succumbs to an agreement of sorts. My rating is a 2.5 because the plot became predictable and I didn’t experience any over the top “feels”. There was no angst and I could anticipate what was to happen next. I loved the family gatherings and how their families mesh together so well. I also liked the “behind the scenes” to the interior design of Barrett’s house. I enjoyed the rush their interactions gave me, but I didn’t experience any overwhelmingly exciting, sad, or angsty emotions and I love to feel while reading a book. Give this a try and maybe you’ll find your next book crush. Rating: 2.5 stars
