***NO BIG SPOILERS, JUST SOME REFERENCES TO THE PLOT***

Leah comes across as a strong, passionate female lead, who loves to fly. I was excited to read a book about a girl who knows what she wants to do and pursues a field that is dominated by men generally. She also comes from poverty, her mother not present and it seems like she really had to grow up quickly, and grow up on her own. I also liked this aspect of the story because there are not many books out there at all that accurately portrays what is it like to be poor in America.

The story was wonderfully written and the author did a great job in creating and writing this story.

The ONE thing that I absolutely hate about this story is how rude and hypocritical Grayson is. He is supposed to come across as this Bad Boy gone Prince Charming after the death of his father. But Leah and Grayson's relationship was unrealistic and pretty pathetic. They went from never talking and not really knowing or liking each other much to having sex after a week of working together at the airport. The time in between these two relational extremes involved Grayson interrogating and bullying her about her sexual history. Every single conversation they have in the novel involves what she has done sexually. He assumes she has had sex with his father, with other pilots coming and going at the airport, and with her classmates. She has only had sex ONCE! And even IF she was a little bit promiscuous, no girl deserves this kind of bullying and harassment. It is HER sexuality and past, not his. Then as they start to have sex, Grayson casually mentions he has had sex many times, and was sexually active with a girlfriend a few weeks before getting with Leah. He is such a hypocrite!

Seventeen year-old Leah has always lived by airports growing up. Living next to one in a trailer park is the cheapest rent and thanks to Leah's loser mom, that's all they can afford. Leah actually doesn't mind being close, she loves planes and longs to fly. Determined to make the best of a situation and not follow in her mother's footsteps, Leah gets a job with Hall Aviation at the airport next door. Mr. Hall takes her under his wing and is like the father she never had. Despite her close relationship with Mr. Hall Leah feels like an outsider every summer and school vacation, when his sons come to visit. They help fly the banner planes that make up the majority of Mr. Hall's business. His sons are gorgeous and complete opposites, even though they're twins. Leah stays back as a silent observer, secretly crushing on Grayson. It's a shock and a blow when Mr. Hall dies unexpectedly, and Leah makes arrangements to work elsewhere figuring the business will be sold. When Grayson and Alec show up to run the business, she's surprised but doesn't think it'll last for long, and Leah has no intention of staying. However, Grayson digs something up in Leah's past and blackmails her to stay on to help fly the banners. In addition to forcing her to stay, Grayson also wants Leah to persuade Alec to date her. Grayson threatens Leah's future hopes of flying so she has no choice but to cooperate with his scheme. She can't figure out why Grayson wants her to attract Alec, and he refuses to tell her.

One of Jennifer Echols great strengths as a writer is her ability to write perfectly flawed but relatable characters, so I connected with Leah instantly. I felt protective of her and rooted for her to triumph and rise above her situation.

I can't quit Jennifer Echols. Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with SUCH A RUSH. I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that SUCH A RUSH is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way too late finishing Leah's story.

Leah Jones has lived her entire life in an endless series of trailer parks, all of them situated next door to an airbase or small town airport. She and her shiftless mother moved to their most recent abode at Heaven Beach when Leah was 14 years old. Shortly thereafter she bullies the owner of nearby Hall Aviation to give her a job in the front office, fielding calls and basically doing anything that needs doing around the private airport. From afar, she watches Mr. Hall's twin sons Alec and Grayson follow in their father's footsteps, first learning to fly and then taking on jobs flying advertising banners around the North Carolina coastline.
