Review - RUSH by Emma Scott

Charlotte Conroy, Juilliard-trained violinist, was on the cusp of greatness when tragedy swooped down on dark wings, crushing her hopes and breaking her heart. The music that used to sing in her soul has grown quiet, and she feels on the verge of setting down her violin for good. To pay the bills, she accepts a job as a personal assistant to a bitter, angry young man who’s been disabled by a horrific accident…

Noah Lake was an extreme sport athlete, journalist and photographer. He roamed the world in search of his next adrenaline high, until a cliff-dive left him in a coma. He awakes to find his career gone, his dreams shattered to pieces, his world an endless blackness that will never lift.

Charlotte begins to see that beneath Noah’s angry, brittle exterior is a young man in a pain. She is determined to show him that his life isn’t over, that he has so much to live for, never dreaming that she would become the only light in his darkness, or that he would help her find the music in hers.

The life he knew is over. The life she wants is just out of reach.
Together, they must face their fears and rediscover what it means to really live.

Rush (City Lights Book III: New York City)Rush by Emma Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. Where do I even start? This was my first time reading a book by Emma Scott so I wasn't sure what to expect. The synopsis definitely intrigued me, so when I was given the opportunity to read & review it I jumped at the chance.

When I think of RUSH and how I ultimately feel about it, only one word comes to mind. Beautiful. Emma's ability to weave words together and paint such a clear picture of events, people, and emotions is just mesmorizing. The character development is on point, the story flows seamlessly from one scene to the next, and the execution of it all was just perfection.

Within the first couple of pages it became strikingly clear that RUSH was by far in a league of it's own. Emma's attention to detail and incredible writing style is what kept me invested in the story of Charlotte and Noah, our broken protagonists struggling to overcome their own personal tragedies, and readapt to life.

Their story is unique and utterly heartwarming. I found myself experiencing the highs and lows of their journey as if they were my own, and completely losing track of time as I dove further and further into their story.

Without a doubt, I would HIGHLY recommend this one. If you're in the mood for an emotional, uplifting HEA romance then look no further! RUSH is definitely a story that will stick with you long after you've finished reading.

Author bio: Emma Scott is a writer, marathon runner, and caffeine addict, who lives and writes in the California Bay Area. She has two smart, feisty little girls, a super-supportive husband, and is a demonstrated fan of the Oxford comma. She is also an unabashed Star Wars geek and comic book enthusiast who fell into romance writing when a writing contest prompt turned a 1000-word flash story into a full-blown novel. She also writes epic fantasy that suffers an epic word count.

She hopes you enjoy her work, encourages readers to leave feedback, and thinks it's amusing to write about herself in the third person. 

My third novel in the City Lights series (set in New York City) is called Rush, and will be released June 30th, 2015. 

Happy reading!
