Welcome to the release day blitz for Rush by Nyrae Dawn! Make sure you enter the giveaway before you leave. And leave the author some comment love!!
Alec Andrews has never quite forgiven Brandon for walking away when their friendship turned into something more. But he can’t deny help to one of his closest friends. As the two spend the long, hot summer working together, their old attraction comes flooding back.
Now as Alec thinks about coming out to his conservative family and Brandon considers revealing he’s a gay football player, the two men must be strong to fight for a love that could be the greatest rush of their lives.
Nyrae resides in sunny Southern California with her husband (who still makes her swoon) and her two awesome kids.
When she’s not with her family, you can be pretty sure you’ll find her with a book in her hand or her laptop and an open document in front of her. Nyrae also writes adult romance under the name Kelley Vitollo.
Wanna know some more about the thoughts going into this book? Read what Nyrae had to say in response to these questions!
Which of your characters has been the most fun to write so far? This is a really hard one for me because I really love both of these boys. They’re both very special to me. I don’t know that Brandon was more fun to write than Alec, but I do feel a special closeness to Brandon and has struggle
What is the secret to staying in love with your characters to see your story through to the end? Wow. Great question. I’m not sure there is a secret. I just think it’s important to make sure your characters are real and as layered as possible. To make them the kind of people you feel for, and pull for. People you continue to discover new things about.
What would be the soundtrack to RUSH? This Years Love by David Gray, New York by Snow Patrol, Outlaws of Love by Adam Lambert, Please Forgive me by Bryan Adams, to name a few.
Tell us about your writing process. Do you start with an idea or a character? Do you know what’s going to happen from the beginning or do you figure it out as you write? It’s different for each book. I never do it the exact same. Most of my books start with the characters though. I usually have some ideas in my head and know where I need to get the story, then I just starting writing. After I have a quarter or so written I feel more comfortable in the story and then I start to plot a little more.
