SUCH A RUSH by Jennifer Echols

Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to Jennifer Echols and her newest release, SUCH A RUSH. I mean, look at that beautiful cover!

First a bit about the book.

The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less:
Such a Rush is a sexy, romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot drawn into a battle between brothers--and the consequences could be deadly.

High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.

But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business--until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers--and the consequences could be deadly.

And now a little bit about Jennifer:

Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Yes, always, but when I was younger I also wanted to be an artist and a musician. I majored in music in college before I switched into English.

What made you decide to go that “extra step” and seek publication?
That really was my plan from the beginning. My grandmother was an unpublished writer, and I thought she gave up on publication too soon, after only a few rejections. From the outset I knew that submitting work and having it rejected was part of the writing business.

Quick! You’ve been chosen to go on Survivor. What luxury item do you take?
My Alphasmart, which is basically a small, light, battery-operated typewriter. I can store 200 pages in it and upload it to my computer back home after I get voted off the island. (Ha! I love how you don't think you're going to win.)

And the most important of all: bacon or chocolate?
Dude, chocolate. (I'm not sure of the count, but I think it's chocolate: 10,000 and bacon: 4.)

Praise for Jennifer's writing:
“Echols is a tremendously talented writer with a real gift for developing relationships between her characters.” —Romantic Times Magazine on GOING TOO FAR

"Emotional and expressive, Forget You is another intricately weaved romance from Jennifer Echols… a breathtaking ride into the world of teenage love and a perfect summer romance." –A Good Addiction on FORGET YOU

“Love Story is just as sexy as Echols’ other MTV books with the same level of intensity." –Books By Their Cover on LOVE STORY

I just finished SUCH A RUSH! It was my favorite of Jennifer's books (I'm such a fan girl). The romantic tension (which she excels at) had me turning pages at lightening speed and the airport setting? AWESOME!!

Was happy to have you on my blog yesterday, thanks for the shout-out!

Love this interview! I'm also beginning to learn that rejection is part of the process. If we give up too early, who knows what we might have accomplished? This sounds like a great book, congrats to Jennifer!

Read the other review and interview and I'm so intrigued by this book! Thanks for sharing!

It seems that "hair all over the place" is trending in book covers in the last year, but that doesn't take away from how awesome this book sounds. Thanks for the highlight, Elana! :)
