BOOK REVIEW: The Rush by Rachel Higginson

Goodreads description:

A life not her own—A future already decided.

Every facet of Ivy Pierce’s life is meticulously planned out and plotted. Cynical and jaded by sixteen, Ivy’s only hope is to escape the legacy she was born into. 

She has a plan, a carefully thought out, feasible plan. She just has to play by the rules until everything falls into place. Unfortunately as predictable as her life can be, she never sees Ryder Sutton coming. He tumbles into her life unimpressed and untouched by her and the life she lives. He’s an enigma to her. A gorgeous, frustrating, sincere mystery and a complete phenomenon in the ugly world she lives in. 

What blooms between them is a fiercely intense attraction that cannot be ignored. Even though they would both be better off without each other—Even if both their lives depend on staying apart.


Anyone who is has even read any of the many posts I have done about Rachel and her books knows that I love her, her writings/stories and her characters.  With her announcement of this book, I was just excited as all her others.

Best part of the book:  I love the concept of the story.  It was not a normal Rachel story, but still different and unique.  I enjoyed the characters in the book.  Rachel always has the ability to make each character stand out on their own and that is wonderful.

Not so great about the book:  There were a couple things that I thought were "not that great".  I did not find Ryder "swoon-worthy".  It is just me, others may find him perfect. It probably because my heart belongs to another character of Rachel's other series.  Also, I thought the book was a little slow, but it does pick up.

However, if you have read Rachel's other books, I recommend that you read this one too!
