Harmful Rush is a standalone, full-length novel set in the Remedy world. You do not have to read the first two books to read this book.
Skylark Samuels has a secret.
She’s not a normal teenager, although she plays one in real life. Pretending to be something you’re not isn’t easy, especially in high school where gossip is gold. For years, Sky manages to hide her uniqueness, until one fateful day when she exposes her gift, her curse, and all her fears come to pass. Now instead of going to college near home like she planned, she has to leave town and go someplace where the rumors can’t follow. The plan when she gets there: keep to herself and stay under the radar.
But blending into the background is impossible when local heartthrob Dylan Parks notices her. Even though Sky keeps her distance and doesn’t act like one of Dylan’s adoring fans, he goes out of his way to talk to her. Her. The girl who wants to be invisible.
Sky isn’t immune to Dylan’s charm, but getting close to him is a bad idea. It goes against the promise she made to herself. Besides, if Dylan knew the truth, he wouldn’t want her. If he discovered her secret, he’d treat her differently and possibly fear her. It’s happened before. But the more Sky gets to know Dylan, the harder it is to resist him, until fate intervenes.
A tragic event forces Sky to reveal herself to the one person she’s come to care for, and his reaction is unexpected. For the first time, she doesn’t feel so alone. But what she doesn’t realize is that she’s never been alone. When she finally lets her guard down, someone comes along who threatens to unravel everything, because being normal was never Sky’s destiny.
I generously received this ARC from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review…
This book is my first Debra Doxer read, but I will happily admit that it certainly won’t be my last! I haven’t read many paranormal books in last few years since I binge read this genre when it was in its most “popular phase.” However, after reading Harmful Rush I think I may have to start one-clicking this genre once again!
There is just so much that I want to tell you about this story, but it is nearly impossibly to do so without spoiling something major in the storyline. I loved how the author chose to write this book and it’s amazing how it instantly captured my attention. Although this book is part of the Remedy series, it is considered a STANDALONE and can certainly be read and enjoyed as one. Since I enjoyed this book so much I plan to check out the rest of this series soon!
