The life he knew is over. The life she wants is just out of reach… Rush by Emma Scott #Romance #BookReview @EmmaS_Writes

To be blind is not miserable; not to be able to bear blindness, that is miserable. –John Milton

Charlotte Conroy, Juilliard-trained violinist, was on the cusp of greatness when tragedy swooped down on dark wings, crushing her hopes and breaking her heart. The music that used to sing in her soul has grown quiet, and she feels on the verge of setting down her violin for good. To pay the bills, she accepts a job as a personal assistant to a bitter, angry young man who’s been disabled by a horrific accident… 

Noah Lake was an extreme sport athlete, journalist and photographer. He roamed the world in search of his next adrenaline high, until a cliff-dive left him in a coma. He awakes to find his career gone, his dreams shattered to pieces, his world an endless blackness that will never lift. 

Charlotte begins to see that beneath Noah’s angry, brittle exterior is a young man in pain. She is determined to show him that his life isn’t over, that he has so much to live for, never dreaming that she would become the only light in his darkness, or that he would help her find the music in hers. 

The life he knew is over. The life she wants is just out of reach. 
Together, they must face their fears and rediscover what it means to really live.

RUSH is a STANDALONE new adult romance intended for readers eighteen and up.

My Review

The story touched me on so many levels!

Extreme sport journalist Noah Lake suffers a horrible injury that leaves him blind. He spends months learning to walk and talk again in the hope that his sight will return, but of course, it does not. This leaves him angry, bitter, and alone in a world he cannot see.

Juilliard graduate Charlotte Conroy is locked in mourning from the sudden death of her brother, the betrayal of her boyfriend, and the loss of her muse. The violin that once brought her such pleasure, is now a reminder of what she has lost.

These two are brought together by circumstance, and soon learn to count on each other for comfort. There are many blocks in the road to their recovery. Noah goes through black moods and suffers debilitating migraines, while Charlotte feels pressured from her well-meaning friends to audition for upcoming musical tours.

This is a story of the power of love and the enduring strength of the human spirit.

I give Rush 5 lovely kisses- An Inspiring Read!
