Feel the Rush by Kelsie Leverich Blog Tour Review and Giveaway



The New York Times bestselling author of The Valentine’s Arrangement continues her sizzling series with a new novel of a plan that goes awry—in the arms of a soldier…

Picking the wrong men is a talent Meagan Mitchell has perfected. She’s sweet, confident, beautiful—and single. With her thirtieth birthday sneaking up on her, she needs a new plan. No more Mr. Wrongs or Mr. Bads, it’s time to find Mr. Safe…

Army Captain, Reed Porter, lives for the thrill—he’s an Airborne Jumpmaster with a rush addiction. He’s sexy and playful, and he quickly tempts Meagan with his rich Southern drawl and sinful looks. But slowing down and settling down are not in his agenda, making him exactly the type of man Meagan wants to avoid…

As their undeniable attraction heats up, Meagan has to decide if she’s willing to risk everything on a chance at love with a reckless charmer. Is she brave enough to bet her future—and her heart—on Mr. Thrill? Or will Reed finally learn that the feeling of a safe landing is just as addicting as the rush of the fall?

Feel the Rush

  Releases August 20, 2013


The sound of her heels echoed quickly through the quiet surrounding her as she walked down the walkway to her apartment. She felt her heart pick up the pace and fall into rhythm with the soft click of her steps.

Reed leaned away from the door as she got closer. She was nervous, her chest felt like it was constricting around her lungs, making it nearly impossible for her to breathe.

She soaked him up as she stepped in front of him. His light blue T-shirt pulled against his chest and hung just below the waist of his worn, tattered jeans. She loved the way he looked in jeans and his brown flip-flops. She smiled.

“Does that smile on your face mean you’re happy to see me?” he asked, his eyes raking over her appraisingly. He had never been ashamed to look at her. Never once.

She sighed. “I’m always happy to see you, Reed.” No matter how mad she was at him, she couldn’t help it.

His face contorted in confusion.

“You shouldn’t have come to the restaurant and you—”

“I’m not sorry, Meg,” he interrupted. “I’ll never be sorry for any moment that I get you pressed against me. Do you know how hard it was for me to leave that restaurant without dragging your ass along next to me? It took every single ounce of restraint I had not to pick you up in my arms and carry you away from him.” The muscles of his jaw started working beneath his scruffy face. “Especially with you in that damn dress.” His stare grazed her skin, physically heating the path it took, and regardless of the fire that had set flames to her skin, she shivered.

“You told me to go, so I went. But I will never walk away from you willingly.” His feet took one step toward her and her pulse picked up. His chest lingered near her beasts and she instantly craved the feeling of it pressed against her.

His fingers slipped through her hair and his palm rested on the side of her cheek. “Never again,” he said, his voice low.

She held his eyes, waiting for something to pass through them that would bring her back to solid ground, because she was sinking fast. She was anchored to him, and she was sinking. But nothing in his eyes told her anything other than the words he just spoke.

She sighed and leaned her face into his hand. She was done fighting it. She might hate herself for this down the road, hell, she might hate herself for this in the morning, but she didn’t care anymore.

His lips pulled up ever so slightly as she molded her check to his palm. Before she could even register what had happened, he had his hand wrapped around hers and was pulling her toward his apartment.

A slight thrill washed over her from the intensity of his movements. Urgent, determined. No more words were spoken between them—and the silence alone spoke volumes. What was there to be said that wasn’t being told in the way his fingers curled around her hand, the way he led her up the walkway, making sure to keep little distance between their bodies, or the way he looked at her from the side, as if her very presence was rocking him.

When Reed stepped up to his door, she leaned against his back, her hand still held firmly in his. She waited patiently behind him as he fumbled for his keys and turned the lock. He stepped inside and Meagan’s feet helplessly followed—a marionette to her puppeteer.

My 5 Star Review
 Meagan Mitchell is playing it safe; she has already dated the bad boy, the wrong guy, the cheating guy now she wants Mr. Safe, the man who wants what she wants. She had a 5-year plan but the clock ticking and her time has just about run out.
ticking clock photo life_clock___animated___by_akillove_zps4b2e4797.gif Reed
Porter, Mr. Thrill seeker his life plan is to live life as if every day was his last. He thrives on adrenaline; he needs to feel the rush and the excitement that comes with it. jump off cliff photo fond7-1372266725_zps11b55974.jpg
“I’m addicted to the feel of the rush. I need it”
Megan decides a fresh start is in order and to travel the safe road only there’s a bump in the road and his name is Reed Porter! What happens when these two meet, she wants safe, he wants the rush… Sparks, beautiful and spine tingling sparks, the kind that leave you breathless and wanton, the kind that sets your body on fire, the kind that makes your head spin, the kind that makes you…scared.
“Sometimes, the things we’re afraid of-the things that scare us the most, Are the things that give us the biggest rush”
Meagan was strong, sweet, funny and she got under my skin the way a best friend does. She was compassionate and genuinely cared about the people around her. I laughed with her and at her and I cried when she cried. Reed is all alpha male; tall, muscular, drop dead gorgeous and sweet, he’s so sweet I have to ask…Can I have one and yes please take me against the wall too!

Army’s Airborne division and devoted to his men

and his southern accent will send a shiver all over your body! He consumed me…the way says sugar and draws it out made me feel like he was saying it to me! He stays with you long after you close the book, sugar...
Delicious and steamy scenes will have you turning the pages wanting more,

“That’s  it, let me find all your sweet spots, sugar.”

just like Megan and Reed did. It was never enough, their bodies couldn’t get close enough or deep
 enough or fast enough…
 photo hot-kiss-with-angelina_4767863_GIFSoupcom_zps279311a9.gif

“I’m going to bring you so close that you will feel like your body won’t possibly

survive without release.”

Afraid of feeling too much, too soon Megan tries to be “friends “ with Reed but with the

intense sexual attraction they share she soon learns that’s not an option.

“We can be friends, only because you’re too sweet and funny to not want to be

around you all the time, and we won’t fuck again-not is you don’t want to,
but that doesn’t mean I won’t want to.”

But, is mind blowing sex enough… Megan wants more and she doesn’t see Reed wanting the same thing and her clock is still ticking and Reed well let’s just say he’s carrying around pain and doesn’t feel deserving. ( no spoiler, read to find out)

Something Megan wanted has her dreaming of happy endings, but
when it’s taken away her world comes crashing down, and so does Reed’s.

 “He fell to his knees. Not only was he no longer whole- he was empty.”

I can’t tell you how much I loved this story. It was told in both POV’s, more like he said, she said, a style I really like.
I was surprised when Kale and Ronnie from The Valentine’s Arrangement were brought into the story, a connection I didn’t expect but happy to hear they’re doing well and planning their life.
OMG...I absolutely loved Feel The Rush, a beautiful love story with just enough Angst to make your heart beat faster and Reed, well what can I say, he is my Mc Steamy.
The author Kelsie Leverich has another hit under her belt.
The characters were well developed and the secondary ones played a major role in the story.
