Review: RUSH

RUSH by Emma Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every now and then someone just appears out of the clear blue sky and shakes you to your core. Recently I came across Emma Scott…or rather she came to me via Nicky Crawford. RUSH and the companion novella Endless Possibility have it me right where it hurts.

I play the violin, or rather, I used to. Sure, I still have my violin. I still love music. I’m still a snob about it. However, it’s now just a thing I used to do. That I can do, but suck at doing. Unlike the character of Charlotte Conroy, my passion for performance faded long ago and never came back. A lot has happened and a lot never happened. I could play the blame game. I could say that my college professor was terrible (she was denied tenure.) I could say that life just got in the way (it did.) But it really doesn’t matter anymore. It’s a failed endeavor. Every time I look at my violin, or even listen to my favorite pieces of music, I can’t help but feel a twang of pain for what might have been. I have a million regrets in my life, and this is unequivocally one of the biggest.

Which brings me to RUSH. Clearly I identify with Charlotte the most, only I was never as gifted a musician. Noah is harsh, but Charlotte is smart enough to realize it’s all a facade. Sure, that’s rather trope-y, but who really cares?! It makes a fabulous story. I found the journey of her and Noah Lake to be absolutely beautiful. Emma’s talent is undeniable and both RUSH and Endless Possibility are well worth your time and money.
