Publisher's Summary

“A fun mixture of magic, sensuality, and iconic pin-up girl style. The romance in New Orleans Rush will leave you smiling and filled with optimism.” (Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient)

Falling for your surly boss is a rotten idea.
Letting him saw you in half is even worse....  

Beatrice Baker may be a struggling artist, but she believes all hardships have silver linings...until she follows her boyfriend to New Orleans and finds him with another woman. Instead of turning those lemons into lemonade, she drinks lemon drop martinis and keys the wrong man's car.  

Now she works for Huxley Marlow of the Marvelous Marlow Boys, getting shoved in boxes as an on-stage magician's assistant. A cool job for some, but Bea's been coerced into the role to cover her debt. She also maybe fantasizes about her boss' adept hands and what else they can do.  

She absolutely will not fall for him, or kiss him senseless. Until she does. The scarred, enigmatic Huxley has unwittingly become her muse, unlocking her artistic dry spell, but his vague nightly activities are highly suspect. The last time Beatrice trusted a man, her bank account got drained and she almost got arrested. Surely this can't end that badly...right?

Magical!

I really enjoyed this as a whole. I loved the characters (especially Huxley 🤤) and the entire plot and premise of the story.

My only issue was with the narration. It wasn’t terrible but there were just small parts that annoyed me about the narrator when voicing Beatrice. I found she made her whiney and immature sounding. I think had I read this as a printed book I would’ve been mesmerized by it. Other than that, it was sparkling with magic & beauty.

A very fun and sweet read!

Quirky wonderful characters, fun special book

Using a third person point of view, Kelly Siskind tells the story of Bea and Huxley. Bea is so adorable- she is down on her luck and just moved to New Orleans with her boyfriend, who became her ex boyfriend 4 days after moving. She meetings Huxley at a bar. Her thoughts, her dialogue and the banter between Bea and Huxley were so much fun and the amusement began from pretty much the beginning of the book. Both characters were so likable, which made listening to this book a true pleasure. A great quote that showcases Bea’s wonderful personality is, “If music played, she danced.” There is also an amazing supporting cast with the brothers, Fox, Axel and Della. There is humor, a bit of danger but resolution is a fun way that totally fits in with the wonder of this book. I plan to read more of this author’s books because she obviously spends a lot of time writing lovable, quirky characters.

Holly Fielding, the narrator, did a great job. Generally calm, especially when she plays the “narrator”, she does a great job introducing emotion for each character at the perfect times. She does a good job differentiating between her as a narrator and playing each of the characters.

What a Rush

New Orleans rush was a really interesting book. Beatrice ends up in New Orleans in a very unexpected way, she has loan sharks chasing her, and finds an interesting new job and romance. The story was told in the very magical city of New Orleans, which was a perfect back drop for this story. The romance does get very hot, heavy, and graphic. (A very personal preference but wanted to let others know.) The overall story was engaging, there were parts that were a tad slow for me.

I enjoyed Holly Fieldings voice a lot, but I could have done with more animation and inflection throughout parts of the book.

I received a copy of this book at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

Sweet and magical ;New Orleans Romance

So fun! We have our heroine, Bea, who is and artistic whirlwind, full of bright colors and big ideas. We have our hero, Huxley aka ‘grumpy smurf’, who is a magician being crushed under his father’s legacy. And we have magic happening! I can’t wait to read more from this family of magicians. A fantastic story with even better narration.

Fun Magical romance

Beatrice is a free spirited , artistic, eccentric, passionate young lady. She looks at the world with rosy colored glasses. Her philosophy is, a smile always makes it a great day. She went to New Orleans with a boyfriend only to be dumped by him ,the 2nd day they arrived. She got drunk and decided to key his car. But it wasn't his. It belonged to Huxley Marlow!
Huxley Marlow is a down and out magician along with his two brothers , Fox and Axel. Huxley is the oldest trying to keep their magic act and their fathers theater going.
Beatrice brings, laughter, fun ,sunshine ,love, and unicorns to his boring life.
Their connection between them is magical! She brings the joy to him he never had. He brings out her inner muse and she starts painting again.
Her quirkiness and his magic are a Wonderful combination. It is a standalone, but I would love, if there were stories about the other brothers, too! This was a fun, amusing story to listen to! Holly Fielding's narration is just a quirky and fun to listen to. She gave each character their own voice and personality! 🎧 #audioobessionreviewer

Light fluffy read

This book was cute.. a tad bit nauseating with all the “my zig zag girl” and “ my magic man” talk. But it was cute. I went into this book blind. I love the cover and that’s enough for me. I am glad that I took a chance on it. It’s not my favorite book but it was absolutely entertaining.

I feel like you have to have an open mind when reading this book. The FMC is very whimsical and light headed. She forgives everything and smiles to hide any hurts. Which sounds nice in theory but just isn’t practical and it made her seem kind of dumb when I don’t think she was. So go into this one knowing it’s going to be a little weird and roll with it.

Sweet and endearing

This started a little slow, but turned out to be a great listen. Each character was interesting and you get invested in them.

Narration was good.
