***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!

Format: Hardcover
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.

The main character, Leah, actually says military people are treated like dogs. She goes on and on about it. Then, they act as if joining is an automatic death sentence. I have been a military wife for 13 years. My husband has been Navy EOD for 26 years. He was enlisted before the Navy sent him to AU for his bachelor's. Now, he has two Master's degrees, including an MBA. He has been to war, but he has also been treated well. We own 3 properties. I drive a Volvo SUV. Our daughter was born in Italy, medevacted to Germany, spent a month in the NICU, and it was all free. My dad was enlisted in the AF for 22 years. He never made a lot of money, but he loved it. We had housing, food, clothes and medical. We never had to live in squalor like this book implies.
It's really too bad this author has such ignorant views. I loved her first book, but that was a long time ago.
This book could have been better. It was hard to get into the characters.

I really like Echols writing. This story was interesting due to the circumstances she lived in and her desire to fly. Love story in the end but good story about 'surrogate' family love too. There is brief teen sex that is not described in detail, I wish that wasn't in there so the book would be appropriate for teens to read,because it is a good story, but I don't believe in condoning teen sex. As an adult I liked the book.

I have read this book many times, always with tears and smiles. I somewhat identify with Leah, having to have mostly raised myself. Although I didn't have it as badly as she did.
I love seeing a strong female character, and Ms. Echols is a wonderful story teller. For me that is the highest praise possible. I e joy all of her books, but as I stated before, this is my favorite. Do yourself a favor and try "Such a Rush". You will not be sorry.
