The wildly popular author of Going Too Far, Forget You, and Love Story returns with 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.
Engrossing and intense, Such a Rush is a captivating story from an author with a rising star.

Potentially a new favorite? Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols is right up there with Going Too Far and Forget You and Endless Summer for me — it’s got swoon, tension, drama, mistakes, lessons learned…ALL THE THINGS.
Poor Leah. My heart broke for this main character, forced to pick up the slack for her neglectful mother, who makes her pay all the bills and hop from trailer park to trailer park. Determined to make something of herself, Leah takes a job at the local airport, where Mr. Hall teaches her to fly and becomes the surrogate parent she so badly needs.
But when Mr. Hall dies, Leah’s trapped in grief, her hopes of becoming a pilot shattered. Plus, she’s forced to deal with Mr. Hall’s jerky son. OR IS HE REALLY AS JERKY AS HE SEEMS?! You know how J. Echols plays it, y’all. SO GOOD.
I read it almost too quickly to savor all the good bits…I wanted to turn back to page one and reread as soon as I finished! Such a Rush is just further proof why Jennifer Echols is one of my absolute favorites.
Read it. The end.
