Blog Tour & Review - THE SEASON: RUSH by Nicole Edwards


"'s a perfect mix of sport and sexiness the chemistry between the two main characters is off the chain it's like the first half of the book is foreplay then BOOM seriously is there nothing this woman can't do and do well." ~Lisa W.

" was everything I ever wanted in a sports romance and it was hot. ...I have a new goalie that I'm in love with" ~Jackie W.

"I devoured this book yesterday...... RUSH by Nicole Edwards is a MUST read !!!!! You are going to LOVE Kingston and Ellie !!!!!!" ~H.P. Davenport

"Well, Nicole you did it again. Loved Rush and Ellie that women is amazing. I cannot wait for more." ~Kathy A.


“...And watching as we lost six of the seven preseason games gave me a bit of heartburn, as well, but I’m holding out hope for this year. We’re skating well, have solid puck handling, the team looks strong. Much stronger than last year, but we’ve still got a long way to go.

Admittedly, I couldn’t let go of some of my key players, no matter how much of a disgrace they’ve been to the team. But I’ve got my eye on one of them in particular right now. Kingston Rush, a.k.a. Mount Rushmore.

Here’s a guy who was the league’s top goalie two years ago, with three Vezina Trophies under his belt. Quite frankly, he’s a beast and a huge asset to this team—when he’s on his game, that is—so I’m hoping a little extra attention might go a long way.

I have an idea of what got his jock strap in a twist; I simply need to dig deeper to get to the root of it. Something, or rather someone, turned him from the easygoing, mysterious badass to an instigator who started picking fights with everyone.” - Phoenix Pierce, Owner - Austin Arrows

4 of 5 Stars

This book is not just another hockey story, it is the foundation for another great hockey series.
For the non hockey lovers, please note you will be able to read this book and not feel that it is all about hockey. In fact there are many different stories melded into one. You will find the forbidden love of a girl and her brothers best friend, a daughter of a single mom who is looking for answers and a behind the scenes look of what it is like to being famous.

Kingston Rush has the body of a temple, I mean really you have to be to Stanley Cup winning goalie. But unfortunately the press has beaten him down pretty badly with false accusations. This has hurt Kingston both personally, but also his image with the fans and the world of hockey. Affecting his game and it is time to do something about it.

Ellie is a single mom and her family means everything to her. Bianca is her world, and a close second is the Penalty Box Bar that she owns with her best friend. It is clear that Ellie has put everything else first in line when it comes to her love life. Being the sister to the Captain of the Austin Arrow, Ellie is no stranger to the world of hockey.

When Ellie is approached to be the "pretend girlfriend" to Kingston to help bring his image back to where it was before that horrible accusation, she doesn't struggle too long. She has secretly crushed on him for so many years, she figures this might be her only opportunity to get a little bit of Kingston. Funny how everyone around them can see the chemistry they have with each other while they fight it every step of the way. Is there any possibility to them becoming more than pretend? How would everyone react to that? Would it be worth the risk to the friendship they currently have?

I always seem to fall in love with Nicole's characters. I think it is because she has a way of making me feel like I am there and part of the story, not just watching in. I see great stories to come with the secondary characters of the Austin Arrow. Can't wait for more.

Coming August 16, 2016
Kingston Rush

Becoming a goaltender in the NHL is the only thing I ever wanted for myself.

Goal accomplished.

Two years ago, I was the best goalie in the league, for the third time. With our Stanley Cup win, the Austin Arrows were on top of the world. Nothing could possibly bring us down.


Turns out, even when you’re at the top, you can find yourself back at rock bottom.

But it gets worse.

Not only did the team fall from grace, then I did too. I was accused of something I didn’t do. And now I’m being forced to repair my tarnished reputation.

Only I don’t know how to do that.

When the suggestion is made for me to pull off this ruse for the media, I know what I’m getting into. I also know there’s only one right answer.

But it’s complicated, and I’m not the only one who could get hurt.

There’s only one major problem.

I can’t say no.
