A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.
High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.
But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.
You know those books that leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside from how much you loved them? Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols was one of those books. There really are no words to describe my love for Such a Rush but that it was one of the best books I’ve ever read. Jennifer Echols is basically the goddess of contemporary.
I simply love Jennifer Echols writing. She has such talent for story telling. I always fall head over heels for her books within the first chapters and in Such a Rush, I really fell hard. I love her gorgeous prose.
I fell in love with the story. I loved the flying and everything that surrounded it. It was something new. There are some downright sexy scenes in this book. I loved the slow building relationship between Grayson and Leah. It was so real. There were so many different relationships between characters that really spiced up the story. I loved following the plot and seeing what would happen next.
The characters are just as wonderful as they are in every Jennifer Echols books. I loved Leah – she was spunky, strong, and independent. Life hasn’t dealt her the best hand of cards, but she doesn’t let that stop her. I fell for Grayson right away. I loved how complex of characters both he and Leah were.
This is my new Jennifer Echols favorite and already I am counting down until her next book will be released. The minute I finished Such a Rush, I already wanted to go back and reread it. The story was magical and intoxicating – I loved every minute of it.
