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 so easy...so comfortable...so perfect...
Are usually too good to be true.
No matter how potent the rush.

Another great story! 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 nicely (I always want more of her words). The story is mostly told from the heroine's POV however there are a few times when we get to appreciate the story from his viewpoint. I liked that the heroine was aware of herself and her shortcomings and was resilient. I admired the hero's ability to pull her out of her comfort zone. A bit moody, he was very aware of himself even if he was reluctant to pursue due to his past. This was a quick read. I would happily recommend this to a friend and I'm anxiously looking forward to the author's next story.
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 branching out a bit with her writing and trying new things. Rush really grabbed me from the beginning and I didn't put it down until I finished it. While it's no surprise who RJ turns out to be it wasn't material that I figured out his true identity right away. What's important is to keep reading Rush to find out how RJ and Julianna resolve all of the misunderstandings and the hurt that she feels when she finds out who he really is. Molly has written a story that kept my attention right from the get-go. It may be a trope that has been done many times before, maybe even in a similar fashion, but that doesn't take away from the fact that her take on the trope is fresh and compelling reading. Way to go Molly!
