“You know what I like, Caitlin. You know I want you to beg for it.”
I was only half alive before I met Gabe. I know that now. I was a shadow of my true self, going through the motions, spending my life responding instead of acting.
Think...Bonnie and Clyde, with a twist...and maybe some Shameless lol!
This Wicked Rush is the first book in the, Wild Rush series, but there is a prequel, One Wild Night, which is a freebie, it's best to read it before this one. So Gabe and Caitlin had one wild night together and Caitlin hasn't been able to forget about it. The money she got that night has removed the threat of the bank foreclosing on her family's home and for another year she can breath relatively easy. But every now and again she remembers the thrill of that night. The thrill of doing something dangerous and the thrill of Gabe's hand between her legs in her friends car...
Gabe hasn't forgotten about her either, that night he was looking for a thrill too and a summer fling, looks as if Caitlin is the girl for him.
Caitlin is going to agree to this job, and the next and the next. We're going to have a summer neither of us will ever forget, and do the world some good while we're at it.
Gabe is rich, he grew up with money and parents who gave him whatever his heart desired besides the obvious, love. Caitlin, is a twenty year old who should be out enjoying her life but instead she has to take care of her three younger brothers and her baby niece. Gabe is intent on helping Caitlin take care of her family, he's also intent on avenging all the people who have been wronged in their town an exacting vengeance on the people who've wronged them. Together, Caitlin and Gabe become a vigilante duo of sorts.
And while they take on more and more jobs, the thrill starts becoming dangerous even deadly. Caitlin becomes more than a fling to Gabe, and Caitlin stops being people pleaser. Her growing feelings for Gabe, make her realise what she's been missing. But then there's a secret, but I can't tell you what it is, but it left me feeling really feely and all over the place.
"Why?" I ask,y voice deeper, huskier. "Why do you want to help me?"
"Because I like you." He meets my gaze, a vulnerable look in his eyes that makes me think he's telling the truth.
"I think you're smart and kind and hard-working and the sort of persion who deserves better than the hand you've been dealt." His lips lift on one side in a lopsided smile.
"And you've got a delicious naughty side, and I like stealing things with you."
A quick break down of why I have it 3.5 instead of 5 Stars
The story was way too short, lacked some character developement, some unanswered question and even though there is a book 3 they could have been answered in this book. In overall the book was good, kept me engaged so I'll definitely be reading the next one.
