Leah Jones has always lived near airports and been
fascinated by planes. When she is finally able to afford
flying lessons, she goes to the owner of Hall Aviation, a
small banner advertising business, to teach her. But when
Mr. Hall dies suddenly, Leah fears her flying days are over.
Luckily for her, Mr. Hall's two sons decide to restart his
flying business, and they want to hire Leah. The only
problem is that Mr. Hall's one son, impulsive Grayson,
decides to blackmail Leah into dating his brother, and Leah
finds herself stuck between the two of them.
I have never
read a book by Jennifer Echols, and after reading Such a
Rush, I think she is a terrific author. Such a Rush was a
lot different than any other book I've read, especially
since it involved flying planes. Everything about the planes
was well-researched, and reading about Leah up in the air
made me want to learn how to fly a plane, too. All the
characters were interesting, and throughout the whole book I
wanted to know their motivations. The mystery with Grayson
and why he's blackmailing Leah was particularly engaging.
Speaking of the protagonist, Leah grew up poor with an
absent mother, but she was able to overcome her upbringing
by the end of the book. Overall, I thought that Such a Rush
was a fun read about a very interesting topic.
