He’s a stranger.
An unexpected surprise.
A risk I have no choice but to take, thanks to this blizzard.

I shouldn’t want him.
But his touch and his kisses…
They’re the perfect distraction.
Until this passes, anyway.

My instincts said I’d be fine, but I should have listened to my head.
Things that are so easy…so comfortable…so perfect…
Are usually too good to be true.

No matter how po

New to me author 3.5 stars

This was my first book that I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it. Sweet and safe with just a smidge of angst (perfect amount for me). Two strangers, two nights and a perfect dog who couldn't bark... more steam and a better epilogue would have skyrocketed my rating!

HERO~ RJ was a good hero that I wanted to throttle a time or two. He was caring when he helped Julianna after she wrecked her car during a blizzard, but he ran cold a couple of times. I was prett

Rush is a quick, sexy, read that packs a lot of emotion into the pages. Juliana meets RJ, a sexy stranger and the two are snowbound together.

A whirlwind romance sparks between the two, and I could just feel the chemistry. I had so much fun getting stuck in the snow with RJ and Juliana. It’s quickly paced, well written, perfect for the reader looking for a steamy treat.

** ARC provided by the author for an honest review **

Two strangers and a snowstorm make for the perfect escape from reality in Molly McLain’s novella Rush.

Julianna is heading back to her hometown for the biggest interview of her career with the reclusive Rushton Cole. When a snowstorm puts her in a ditch, she ends up the guest at the nearest inhabited cabin.

RJ Scott is trying to have a quiet getaway at his cabin in the woods, but when Julianna shows up on his doorstep his plans quickly change.

I received a copy and voluntarily left an honest review

Molly McLain has impressed me with her storytelling skills from the moment I picked up Fly and met her gorgeous “Country Boy” and my admiration has grew with every book I have read. So I was more than willing to throw caution to the wind and meet up with her two newest characters on a snowy stranded night and experience the uncontrollable heat that sparks between these two strangers in the middle of nowhere. It wasn't long into Rush that Mo

As a huge fan of Molly McLain, Rush was a must read for me. From the moment I opened this book my mind devoured the words on the page. RJ and Julianna’s story will have you captivated and intrigued right to the very end. This book is about life sometimes causing you to take a detour literally on the road less travelled to bring you crashing into the one person’s path you were meant to cross. Rush is full of so much emotion and passion that you will at times find yourself holding your breath. The ...more

Molly has done it again. Amazing story. You won't wanna put this book down

OMG, MOLLY MCLAIN HAS DONE IT YET AGAIN!!!!
The first book I ever read by Molly McLain was Can’t Walk Away, the 3rd book in her River Bend Series back in February of 2015. I have been a fan of Molly McLain ever since and have grown to love her writing more and more by every book I have read since. She has grown brighter and stronger as an author in my opinion. The River Bend series is “small town” romance, her Vegas Heat series is “big town” romance, and in her latest book, Rush, is a combination

She made me cry…again.

I love a good forced proximity love story and Rush is a great one. Julianna is on her way to interview famous, but reclusive, author Rushton Cole. This is the opportunity of a lifetime and could really launch her career. She gets stranded in a snowstorm and has to accept the hospitality of a handsome stranger, RJ Scott.

Rush is a novella length standalone story and was a pretty quick read for me. I've been a fan of Molly McLain's writing since her very first book. She is bra

Julianna has been sent to interview an author from the same town she was raised in Minnesota at the request of the author. Finding herself in the midst of a snowbank is the icing on the cake.


RJ finds himself hosting a stranded motorist while on vacation in his isolated cabin. He can't help himself where she's concerned.


This story is a little different for this author though no less intriguing. She spins the story very well. Though I was disappointed in its length, I felt like she wrapped it up n

I give Rush by Molly McLain five Stars. This book was very well written and a quick read. I absolutely loved the main characters and had a very hard time putting the book down. Julianna is from a small town in Minnesota who has made her life as a writer/interviewer for a company in Chicago. Her boss finds out that she is from the same small town as the famous book author Rushton Cole and is then specifically asked to interview him from his publicist she can not say no.

Hot, sexy, steamy & oh that cover made me fall in love!!! I loved RJ & was him as my own!!! Juliana is a wonderful character, she is written as a strong sassy & very independent young woman. I fell in love with her heart & mouth. RJ is a strong, alpha & needs an equally strong if not stronger companion. Molly writes her so perfectly sassy that she is a great h to the H. It was a quicker read, but the story was not lacking at all. It was a full fall in love with the characters ...more

I live in Ohio and I hate snow! As much as Julianna hates the snow and driving in it. I dread mornings where I know it’s going to be a long drive to work because of snow. And snowstorms? Yes no thank you!! But wait...... after reading Rush I might just reconsider that!! Holy crap!!!

I could not put this book down! I just got the chance to pick this up and now I’m thinking why the heck did you not make the time?!? I adore Julianna and RJ!! So much! They’re electrical, fire, sweet, sassy, and just

Rush is a sexy, insta-love story that will suck you in from the start. RJ and Juliana have immediate chemistry from the moment she shows up at his door during a snowstorm. Stranded because her car ran into a ditch, Juliana is forced to spend time with the brooding, mysterious stranger. The two embark on a steamy affair but RJ is keeping a big secret that, when it comes out blows up their budding relationship. Have no fear though, there's a happy ending that is satisfying and sweet.

Oh RJ how I love you! From the minute you meet RJ you fall in love with him just like Julianna does. Julianna crashes her car in a ditch while driving through a snowstorm in Minnesota on her way to interview a reclusive author. Even though Julianna is only in RJ’s cabin for 2 days that is all the time needed to fall for him. After you meet RJ you will understand why it was so easy. From the way he talks, acts and flirts how could she not fall for him. This book was fabulous from page one to the ...more

This novella was freaking amazing. It was a complete surprise release by Molly McLain - unknown characters, unknown story line - AMAZING!

Julianna is on her way to Minneapolis to do an interview with an author that has totally shut himself away from the world. Life happens and chaos ensues thanks to a mid-western winter.

It was a fast read but I didn't feel as though this book lacked anything. Of course I wanted more, but who doesn't want more of a good book??

Crash!

Wow, what a book. This was a fast read, as Molly's books usually are for me. So hard to put down!. I love the spin to the normal 'Christmas Cottage' theme. This had nothing to do with the holidays but we still got the horrible Winter weather and being stranded. The only reason this isn't a 5 star is due to editing. Maybe I catch too much but there were missing words. Easy enough to know what it was supposed to say though. Doesn't take away from the story at all.

Crash

Perfect short and sweet read with enough steam to keep you warmed up on a snowy day. RJ and his lumber jack looks was a hunky hunk of a man's man, I loved him and his instant feelings for Julianne, Crash, made me all mushy inside. It had just enough of a twist to keep me turning the pages.

5 RUSH STARS!! This story was addicting I could not get enough of RJ and Julianna, I needed more, more and more. The story hit all the emotion buttons and the bantering was perfect. Molly McLain has her own style of storytelling and it is perfection to keep you devouring every word. This is one book you will want to read it is quick and perfect for evening to unwind.

Chance meeting

Unpredictable circumstances bring the characters together. A lie by omission, 2 unforgettable days, and the hard truth about the past could bring the characters together or keep them apart. I enjoyed the book however it was a little predictable.

Very Cute!

This story was short and sweet and quite enjoyable! I love RJ and Jules’ relationship and how it’s not overly angsty and also super hot! This was my first Molly McLain book and I thought it was great!

Molly McLain is a favourite author and I have been eagerly awaiting any new book from her for ages - and Rush does not disappoint. It was perfect - it didn't feel like a novella, it actually felt like a good solid book.

Loved it - want more now please!

Another great Molly Mclain story

One of my favorite authors. Great story with great characters. A little too short, but her books always feel that way because I don’t want them to end!

I’ve read all if not most of Molly’s book. Gotta say there isn’t one I don’t like and Rush is the same. Julianna while on her way to an interview, crashes her car in a ditch, gets snowed in with RJ. Cute short story with a little angst. Defiantly worth a read

I loved this! Rush and Crash (aka Julianna) were just perfect and so sweet. I did feel as though the story could have been a little longer (and it couldn't have hurt to have at least one more sexy scene) but overall, it was very enjoyable.

I have never read anything from this author: this was a pleasant surprise. I like quick reads - specially those that are good and a well developed story. I will definitely read other books from this author.
