Our Review

‘I wasn’t ready to lose my grip on the dream I’d had since I was a girl.’

Dash: Rushing the Play is the second book in this sports romance series of standalones by Kayley Loring and Connor Crais. We enjoyed the first book Decker but have to say Dash and Charlie’s book is our favourite in this series so far. We loved it! It’s got the opposites attract element when footballer Dash, who’s built like a brick shithouse, falls for Charlie, the tiny ballet dancer. Dash has enough self-confidence and arrogance to launch a pocket rocket, which by the descriptions of him, he could do with his little finger, such is the size of…well literally all of him. We were often reminded of this and feared for Charlie on several occasions. Spanning a few years, you can tell that the big lad fell hard for his tiny dancer, so much so he begins walking a different path, which he brings onto the field with him. We fell in love with Dash, and he charmed the tutu’s off of us!

‘- there was no way this guy could break my heart because I wouldn’t let him in there. Although, there was the distinct possibility that he could do some serious damage to some other very important parts of me.’

When the Coach sends Dash for dancing lessons by the strong ballet dancer, Charlie Bardot, he is not impressed. Dude is a powerhouse and the only dancing he does is the pec-dance with his moobs. Whether you find this hot or not, it always gets a giggle. The banter between this unlikely pairing was fabulous. Instead of a high five, we give it a high jazz hand. They definitely had a strong connection and an attraction that set our kindles on fire.

‘We were barely even the same species. I mean, he was a Honey Badger, for crying out loud. But he was so raw, straightforward, and simple that I guess I found it refreshing.’

Charlie may be little, but she is definitely fierce. Strong-willed, dedicated, confident, and one of the most hilarious characters whilst pregnant. That’s right, this book also has the surprise pregnancy element. Normally we’re not overly keen on those but the way these Authors wrote it was fabulous. There was no unnecessary drama or ‘let’s make one of them the bad guy,’ rather – it was super emotional, funny, and heart-melting and both Dash and Charlie had us in stitches with their interactions. This is definitely another winner from the saucy twosome!

“Oh Charlie, Charlie, Charlie. What are you doing? Is that a challenge? Big mistake. I’m going to boyfriend material the fuck out of you.”
Okay, that was cute. “That doesn’t even make sense.”
He smirked. “Oh yes, it does.”


#99 Dash Taylor. Rookie defensive end for the Boston Tomcats. 285 pounds of fast-twitch muscle. Nickname: Big D.

I’ve been sacking quarterbacks since junior high and causing trouble since I was born.

My college coach thinks I have a bad attitude, so he makes me take ballet lessons as punishment. If I don’t turn things around on the field next season, he’ll bench me. I have no idea what ballet has to do with football, but it turns out the real punishment is that the beautiful dance teacher refuses to get involved with me.

Two years later, we cross paths again, and it’s not the other team’s offensive line who brings me to my knees—it’s a hundred-pound ballerina.

She doesn’t think I’m boyfriend material, and I used to think that too.

I’ve been a beast on the field and in the bedroom, but now I’m going to prove that I can be a man for her…and for our surprise baby.

I thought I was all about the smash and dash.
But getting Charlie Bardot pregnant changed everything.

***This is a 93,000 word novel. It is the second standalone in the Boston Tomcats football romance series. You do not have to read DECKER: Changing the Play in order to enjoy or understand DASH. But you’d probably like DECKER—so maybe read that one too when you’re in the mood for more dreamy-cocky-football-hero-who-falls-for-a-strong-heroine goodness.***

Why can’t you? He’d thrown that bomb into her world. Why can’t you have what you want? Why can’t you be who you want to be? Why can’t you? With them she finally could. And she was going to be so very good at it.’

‘Heartache and sorrow hung over her so deep it bled through every vein.’


“Princess, when I love someone, it’s with my soul. It’s a full commitment. It’s a relationship that will grow, evolve, and change to fit us. I won’t ever stop trying to be the best man I can be. I won’t give up on us, through thick and thin.”
