As a college junior, Mindy Stanton has no interest in dating a freshman.

That is until Ben Whitmore shows up and serenades his way into her heart at the dorm social she’s running. And after hearing him sing, even Mindy can’t deny that he has a deep, sexy voice that makes her melt.

Even though Mindy makes it clear that she doesn’t date younger guys, Ben pursues her anyway. After all, he doesn’t seem like the typical college freshman, who is only interested in hooking up, partying until he can’t remember his name, or joining a frat. He’s a gentleman, a romantic, and definitely knows all the right things to say to sweep a girl off her feet.

So Mindy drops her guard. She allows herself to fall for him. Before she knows it, Ben is all she can think about. To her, he’s perfect.

But it doesn’t take Mindy long to discover that even the most perfect guys…

Have secrets.

My Thoughts:

All three of these novels sounded good, so it was hard for me to pick just one. This one intrigued me the most, maybe because of how Ben sounds in the synopsis. In any case, this was a very enjoyable story.

While the whole point of this story is very much instalove, I couldn't help but be drawn in to Mindy's life and how she views Ben. He's kind of undeniable when it comes to his sweetness and charm, I can see why it was hard for her to resist him. Especially the whole being serenaded thing. *swoon* Then she's given a smack to the face by Ben's secret, which, to be completely honest, I knew long before she knew. But there is more to the secret than anyone knows.

Rushing Into Love is a cute read. While I did pretty much predict how things would turn out, I still had fun enjoying the ride that led to the end. The reason why, I think, is because it is a shorter story, so the plot had to move faster. I might be checking out more of Ashelyn Drake's books in the near future because of this one.
