REVIEW ➼ Brazen Rush by Ali Dean


Jordan Slattery is a skateboarding phenom, but no one’s heard of her. That is, until she starts college in California, and heads begin to turn each time she hits the skateparks. She tries to avoid the attention, waking at the crack of dawn to ride before anyone else arrives. That plan backfires when none other than Beckett Steele, skateboarding world champion, shows up at the same park with the same plan to avoid the crowds. Too bad his initial interest in her disappears when he realizes she’s only seventeen to his twenty-five. When Beckett’s best friend discovers Jordan on his own and wants to offer her the opportunity of a lifetime, Jordan finds herself considering a future she never imagined. She never wanted to get pulled into the world of sponsorships, competitions, and social media frenzy. But is she willing to sacrifice her obscurity if it means having Beckett Steele in her life?

After today, she’s definitely not a mystery girl anymore. She’s not my secret, our secret. Pretty soon, everyone’s going to know about Jordan Slattery.


Brazen Rush is the first book in an all new series by Ali Dean. I love Ali’s sport romances, mainly because she writes about sports that aren’t common when it comes to romance novels.

Jordan is a skateboarder and a pretty amazing one. She is someone that other women and young girls can look up to in the skating world. She may be young, but her maturity level is beyond her age. She just loves skating, she doesn’t care about the fame and fortune that can come with it. Beck, well its hard not to love him. He is the guy all the girls want when it comes to the skating world. He is drawn to Jordan, he is fascinated by her, but he is conflicted about his feelings for her, especially when it comes to the difference in their ages. I loved the chemistry the had throughout the story.

The dynamic between Beck, Griffin and Jordan is interesting and I can’t wait to see where it goes as this series progresses. With this being the first book in the series it does end on a little cliffhanger. Brazen Rush is another great book by Ali Dean!
