Steamy, sexy with a dash of danger Robin Covington’s Rush was a pleasure to read from start to finish. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures
From Liliana Hart’s New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by USA Today bestselling author Robin Covington…
Atticus Rush doesn’t really like people. Years in Special Ops and law enforcement showed him the worst of humanity, making his mountain hideaway the ideal place to live. But when his colleagues at MacKenzie Security need him to save the kidnapped young daughter of a U.S. Senator, he’ll do it, even if it means working with the woman who broke his heart …his ex-wife.
Lady Olivia Rutledge-Cairn likes to steal things. Raised with a silver spoon and the glass slipper she spent years cultivating a cadre of acquaintances in the highest places. She parlayed her natural gift for theft into a career of locating and illegally retrieving hard-to-find items of value for the ridiculously wealthy. Rush was the one man who tempted her to change her ways…until he caught her and threatened to turn her in.
MacKenzie Security has vowed to save the girl. Olivia can find anything or anyone. Rush can get anyone out. As the clock winds down on the girl’s life, can they fight the past, a ruthless madman and their explosive passion to get the job done?
Review copy provided for an honest review
Whew! Robin Covington turns up the heat with her latest book Rush, part of Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie Family saga. I’m not a huge fan of romantic suspense so I was a wee bit leery of reading this novella, but alas my worries were unfounded. Yes, it was suspenseful and yes there was some romance in it but this book was much more. Rush is about two people trying to make sense of the relationship they let go as they are reunited to save the life of a young girl who melted both their hearts.
I don’t even know where to begin with Atticus Rush although I will say I love his name and his very complex nature. Atticus spent years in Special Ops and now works for people who need someone when things go bad and as they say things have gone really, really bad. A dirty senator’s young daughter has been kidnapped, a girl whose crush on Atticus was legendary and a girl who he knows he will save at any cost including involving his ex-wife into the case. I wanted to not like Lady Olivia (Livvy) Rutledge-Cairn, I kind of wanted to scratch her eyes out and I don’t know why but even I could see how much she loved Atticus and how much he loved her despite everything that went down between them. Their relationship and marriage was far from normal, but it worked for them and it made them whole.
I loved the interplay between these two, the complexities of their relationship and the fact that despite years apart neither one can forget how the other one makes them feel. While their love was different, it was real and it was absolutely what made them both realize how much they needed each other in their lives (well that and a good stern talking to by a teenage girl).
