In a sentence or so: Leah's absent mother and dilapidated trailer inspire her to search for purpose in her life. She finds that drive and passion she's been searching for at the airport by her trailer park. So there just happen to be sexy boys there and, of course, there are secret plots and mysterious schemes and a whole lot of kissing (and more!) going down.

The reason I love Jennifer Echols is this - that woman writes AMAZING characters. Do I love the coming-of-age pieces? Friend, you KNOW I do. Echols writes relationships that are so authentic I'm completely absorbed in everything each person says, picking it apart, and analyzing all of it. Basically, I love to read Jennifer Echols because she is so damn readable.

Oh, okay yeah the story is really fun too! The whole airport situation was really interesting to read about as I had no clues about that walk of life. Leah's commitment and passion for flying stuck with me as a reader, as did her relationships with her friends, her boss, and obviously her love interest.

Is Such A Rush a life changing book? No. Not everything we read has to be life changing, okay?! But does this book still matter? Yeah, it totally does. It showcases a girl who pulls herself up by her bootstraps, does things because SHE wants to, and still has sexytimes with boys. Her romantic relationships are NOT a means to an end which makes me fist pump all the fist pumps for Jennifer Echols because to me that is what being an independent woman is all about! Live your life! Be strong and smart and awesome and THEN move on to boys!

You should read this book if...
You like sexytimes books with great characters, a beachy setting, and a healthy dose of drama all wrapped up in an addictive package. So basically if you have a heart beating in your chest.

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. Yesssss. I loved this book. Leah was such a kick-ass girl and I admired her for rising above her less than desirable life. Also, boys! I loved the mess of relationship drama that went on. SO MUCH TENSION. In the best way possible, of course :)

  2. This was the first Jennifer Echols book I ever read and I loved it. I loved it so much that all of her other books I've read, which I've still liked, have kind of been a bit of a letdown. This one was so good though, I love a strong lady story!

  3. I loooooooooooved this one!

  4. I think this might be my FAVORITE of hers!!! But that's a hard call since they're all so good :)

  5. This was my first book by her. Really liked it. I have since purchased some of her earlier works, but I have yet to get to them. I will someday though!!! #goals

  6. This was the first book I ever read from her, and I absolutely loved it! I thought the way she wrote Leah was stunning, because she just felt so REAL. Glad to hear that you really liked this one too!


Hey you! What do you have to say?
