REVIEW: “Rush Around the Clock” by Silvia Violet


Finn McMurphy convinces himself his spoiled dogs are all the company he needs. Then he meets Crawford, his sexy new neighbour, and everything changes.

Patient soul Finn McMurphy teaches music and drama to middle schoolers. By the time he’s finished with after-school rehearsals and the private lessons he teaches to make ends meet, he’s too exhausted to think about dating or even hanging out with friends. He’s resigned to life with his music, his students, and his ludicrously spoiled Yorkies.

Then he meets Crawford Bixby. Crawford may be the most perfect man Finn has ever met—kind, good with kids, gorgeous, and completely unconcerned with Finn’s lack of ability to be coherent around him. Finn falls hard for him, but he’s terrified of what he feels. Will he be able to step out of the controlled world he’s created for himself and take a chance on love, or will he keep making excuses—rehearsals, papers to grade, dogs to walk—and push Crawford away?

I am a sucker for dork and dude romances and this hit that spot perfectly.

Ok, so we have Finn, a jittery, middle school teacher that cares for two cRaZy Yorkie dogs and a smooth hunk of spunk called Crawford.

Really, Finn is a honest-to-goodness sweetheart and watching him metaphorically flail his way through this romance was adorable to watch. I did, in fact squeak at the cuteness of it all ’cause gah!, I just love it when dorks splutter their one word answers while the hot dude smiles lasciviously.

“Do you ever sit still or do your feet keep moving even if someone picks you up just like one of your crazy dogs?”

Yeah, it’s super cheesy (especially towards the end) and there’s one sided insta-love, but hey, we’re not looking for a life changing experience here, right?

Bottom line:  it’s a mere 48 pages and has a heat rating of “burning“, so I’ll let you decide if that’s a good thing or not. ;)
