Overview

“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’s 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?

Oh my gawd, I heard such great things about this book and couldn't wait to start reading but as I began I started to doubt that I was going to like it..... because I LOVED IT!!!! This book is not your typical read, not by a long shot, it's quirky, sweet, fun with a side of sexy. Bea was an eccentric woman full of fun, witty banter and peculiar putdowns. Huxley is the oldest Marlow brother who carries the family troubles on his shoulders never truly living his life. That is until he meets the one woman who puts the "MAGIC" back into his life. Huxley and Bea together are delightful, adorable and enchanting, that you won't be able tear yourself away fron their story. A story that will suck you in and captivate you till the very end!

Love, love, love! Although Chasing Crazy will probably always be my favorite book of Kelly Siskind’s, New Orleans Rush came *this close* to knocking it out of the top spot. Bea and Huxley’s story was so charming, quirky, heartfelt, refreshing, and fun. I loved that neither Bea nor Huxley quite had their acts together, pun not intended! It’s a nice change of pace to read a book about 2 characters who aren’t perfect, who have flaws, who don’t know what’s going to happen day to day, who take what life throws at them and do their best to survive. And somehow, some way, even manage to thrive. I really adored these characters and their love story. The romance was sweet and swoony and did all kinds of things to my heart. Ms. Siskind balanced the more emotional aspects of New Orleans Rush with funny, light-hearted moments, and it made for such an engaging, entertaining read. I'm really hoping we'll get to see more of the other Marlow boys in the future!

GREAT READ FULL OF MAGIC! Craving something a bit different in a romance novel? Give this FUN Romance set in NOLA a place on your shelf or on your Kindle. Bright COVER ART along with amazing characters will not disappoint. Beatrice Baker puts the Buzz in Huxley Marlow's CAPE. Marlow has brothers and I can see them being spot lighted in future works. "A copy of this book was provided by EverAfter Romance via NetGalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." ILLUSION HUMOR!

4.5 stars — This is going to be one of those books that I struggle to review, because it’s so hard to convey all the things I loved about the book. It was just so…REFRESHING. From the characters, to the plot line, it just fit me so perfectly and surprised me in the best ways. Beatrice is…she’s everything I want to be. I saw so much of myself—or rather who I want to be—in her. She was vibrant, and whimsical, and quirky, and her childlike sense of wonder had me smiling from ear to ear. As someone who professes her favourite colour to be *rainbow*, I could totally vibe with Bea’s craving for colour in all aspects of her life. She was also kind and aware of the people around her, from strangers to friends. I was unsurprised to find she was a Hufflepuff (Puffs unite). She wasn’t without her flaws. She was definitely messed up from her odd childhood, and the roles that were thrust upon her at a young age. But I really felt her grow throughout the book, and I was confident that she would continue to grow in her new family. Huxley was his own unique brand of quirky. He had all these seemingly contradictory traits, but they worked in him. He had this kind of hard shell around him, coming across gruff and “surly smurf”. But inside he was just this romantic marshmallow looking for a unique soul to understand and embrace all of him. I LOVED his unconfirmed love of romance novels. I love how he immediately saw the uniqueness of Bea and allowed her light into his life. And again, just like Bea, he was flawed. It took him forever to understand that going it alone was a mistake. He was carrying around a stupendous amount of guilt, shouldering the burden of an almost fatherly role. I loved seeing him grow as well, with some help from his family. And Bea and Huxley together were delightful. They made me laugh and smile and swoon. I truly felt their connection and chemistry, and desperately wanted them to find their way together. I LOVED Huxley’s brothers, Axel and Fox. They were truly one of a kind characters. I honestly thought we might get their books, but with the ending I’m less sure on that now. I would love to see their own stories. I LOVED the magic that this book showcased. I loved the wonder of it. I LOVED that this wasn’t a book about billionaires, but actually of two characters truly struggling financially. I feel like we don’t see that enough. I think the only thing I was so so on was the Oliphant stuff and the Big Eddie stuff. I enjoyed it, but I don’t know if I feel like I got enough closure with the wrap up. But in the end, I was here for the romance…I mean, let’s be real. So yeah. This was a Lenore book. It’s making me want to put on my rainbow leggings, and dance around the house…and I think I just might.

This was cute and I liked the magic element (the guy is a magician this isn't fantasy), but Beatrice did not seem to be a well developed character? I liked her friendship with Della and wish that had been explored more. My favorite part was the New Orleans setting and the Marlow brother's relationship. This was a cute romance novel that I had a fun time reading (hence the three stars), but the main characters were lacking. The cover is also the cutest thing ever! *Thank to NetGalley for the eARC in exchange for an honest review*

Beatrice ran to New Orleans to have an adventure with her boyfriend and to escape the loan sharks who were after her and her gambler dad. However, as soon as she gets to New Orleans her boyfriend dumps her and kicks her out of their apartment. While drinking away her sorrows she meets an alluring magician, Huxley, and coyly asks if she can cuddle up in his cape. Intrigued by her, Huxley uses her dire circumstances to convince her to become his magician's assistant and finds himself wanting a lot more from her. Beatrice and Huxley are really adorable together and I loved that they took the time to court one another rather than jumping right into bed. The intrigue around the loan shark who was after Beatrice and the rival magician who was out to destroy Huxley gave the story just enough action without making the story too serious. Overall, this was a light-hearted fun love story and would make a great summer read. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me an advanced reading copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

She was done. She had nothing left and no options. She had given everything up and now she had nothing. He was the son in charge. It was always up to him to keep it all together. He was the one that failed. He carried that burden alone along with everything else. These two are a perfect match. Each of them more worried about the people around them and making poor decisions because of it. It's a story with a bunch of sub plots which means lots going on and a few characters to keep track of which isn't always easy but it was fun. The banter between brothers and the bubbly sunshine of Bea keep lots of chuckles flowing. It's a cute read if you let yourself just go with it. This is my first read by this author and it was just what I needed.

beatrice "bee" baker is having *a day* when she encounters a man in a velvet cape she just wants to nuzzle. he turns out to be one of the marvelous marlow boys, a down-on-their-luck magical act working the crowd in new orleans. when a mix-up results in bee keying huxley's car, he blackmails her into becoming his new stage assistant. from the moment they meet, the chemistry is off the charts. but they've both got baggage and money-related problems about to crash on their heads. new orleans rush is a satisfying contemporary romance, with a strong cast of secondary characters and two leads who are flawed but loveable. **new orleans rush will publish on april 23, 2019. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/everafter romance in exchange with an honest review.

I really loved New Orleans Rush, partially because the quirky dynamic between Bea and Huxley gave me some major The Hating Game vibes. Maybe it's the quirky pin-up girl thing? Only Bea is a watermelon woman as opposed to the strawberry shortcake goodness that is Lucy in THG. Either way, if you loved Sally Thorne's The Hating Game, I HIGHLY recommend you read Kelly Siskind's New Orleans Rush. Bea is the Huffliest of puffs and I adore her sweet little manic pixie dream girl, thigh-high wearing, unicorn self. She's got some pretty traumatic baggage, but still manages to be a smiling ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. And OHHHH my gosh, Huxley's reaction to Bea is just... *swoon*. OK, yes, it did get a little bit sickening having him call her a unicorn over and over and over again, but keep in mind this is a dark grouchy man and he's just getting a double dose of sunshine in his life -and LOVING IT. I don't normally care for romantic suspense, and while there is an element of suspense in this novel and it very much a rom-com, NOT a romantic suspense novel (which I appreciate!). I really love Huxley's brothers - at least, the two I met in this book, Axel and Fox - and was hoping that this would be a series with each book focusing on a brother and their love story. There was plenty of set-up for a next book with Fox and Della, but the way this wraps up it's clear this is a stand-alone. It's a bummer, but it's also nice to see some stand-alone romances in a market where interconnected series seems to be the norm.

4.6 magical stars My love of romance started at a very young age and has ranged from historical to paranormal but one always had a soft spot for me and that being chick-lit. This book is very reminiscent of that. It has the magic (in this case literally), the humor, the cuteness, and the feel-good feelings. I wasn't expecting that when I started this book. I have been a fan of this author for years after discovering her with the Wild Wish series and have always enjoyed her quick wit and sexy contemporary romance. This book, however, had a different vibe to it than her previous work. From the beginning, I found myself smiling. this book made me feel good. There was no over the top angsty moments. It was just a story that was enriched in a city that I love with(New Orleans) something that always makes me light up--magic. Basically, in a nutshell, this story is pure unadulterated magic. Take the chance on Bea and Huxley. Bea, and her funny name calling and quirky yet optimistic personality and Huxley the magician who is in need of some magic in his own life are both pure joy.
