To escape the superficial life she leads. No love no feeling just a sea of men answering to a call she cannot control and women who can't help but strongly dislike her. The curse is who she is... no-one can ignore it. That is until she meets him... Ryder

This book has such a different feel than any of Rachel Higginson's other works... different even from a lot of the other YA that's out there.

Ivy lives a fairy tale life. She's beautiful, has all the best clothes, and can get any guy she wants... Too bad she's doesn't really want any. She is born into a society of sirens, sirens that have adapted to the modern world quite well. No more ship-wrecked sailors for these women, and Ivy is groomed from a young age to be able to attract men. She knows how to talk, walk, and look seductive. She knows how to manipulate men to get what she wants, overkill considering they fall in love with her immediately... it doesn't matter that she's only 16, and it certainly doesn't matter the she is wracked with guilt because of her very existence, hating her effect on the people around her but unable to break away from her family and the role she was born to play.

This book is significantly darker than most others... the heroine isn't some happy-go-lucky girl at the beginning of the book. She's damaged, and exhausted from acting the part. The situations she gets into in this book aren't the 'big battle, good vs. evil'... is the kind of evil that happens in real life. Lusty eyes from an older man that has complete control over her, near-rape, being pimped out by her own mother... It's kind of shattering because this type of thing does happen, though without the Siren part of it. It might be in smaller degrees, but tons of mothers groom their daughters for catching a man (yes, it still happens), encourage flirtations and promiscuity, look the other way at blatant emotional abuse... at blatant emotional damage.

I would NOT recommend this for the very young YA reader. Nothing too 'adult' happens, there is no sex, no drugs, though there is some alcohol... but it is still too mature for the youngest YA readers.

I would give it a four and a half stars for this, why the half you ask? Simply put the introduction of "siren's" in an almost too casual manner actually had me doubting how this story would go after this snippet of information was released by the main character. All through the story your hooked on Ivy and this "pull" that she had over those around her and you start to question that there is an almost supernatural/ witchy quality to her. Admittedly I did not entertain the idea of it having a Greek Mythological feel as most books these days are falling into the stereotypical vampire/werewolf/witch drama. I suppose this was the reason for my pause and the small doubt I had. But surprisingly enough once you read on you find that the story remains true to its beginnings and doesn't go off on a wild supernatural tangent but instead continues to focus on the turmoil around Ivy and her struggle not to lose herself in the midst of it all. Leaves you with the burning need to read the second!

I think this book may just become my new favourite series, I have no idea how I did not come across this series yet!

OHGOD! RYDER is dreamy I could just...*faints*

Ryder and Ivy are just made for each other, how did it take so long for them to see that? The DAMN KISS!!!! Why did it take so long for them to finally do it? And oh what a kiss it was!

Nix is a right baddie, I hate the way he controls Ivy's and the rest of the societies life. You do everything according to his standards, and you are 'owned' by him. That's what he wants, he wants to own 'Ivy', why that is not made clear yet. I was shocked to find out there was more than one siren, I am not sure what I expected really since I have not read many siren's books.

I love reading about Greek Mythology, I am not sure what I specifically love about it but they always seem to spark my interest, this book was no different. I loved every minute of it. The writing was very well written I ended up reading this in one sitting!

Ryder and Ivy go well together, they are both determined; strong headed and love fiercely. Ivy is shown to drastically change from being confident and so sure of herself to self doubt, insecure person who doesn't stand up for herself. Everything changes after Sam's accident. It kind of annoyed me how throughout the book she thought she was weak whereas before she would stand up for herself. I get that she is grief stricken but the least she could do is stand up for herself when girls are bullying her? She does not need a knight in shining armour to protect her, she is strong enough to do that herself being a siren. Ryder on the other hand, despite having a girlfriend stuck up for Ivy throughout the book, I was there along cheering him on "Go Ryder go!!" especially the bitch scene in the cafeteria was epic! :D

Oh my goodness I adored this book! Seriously The Rush is one of the best paranormal romance books that I have read this year. I loved it so much I can only think of one thing that I don’t like about it – and that’s not even to do with the book but the release date of the final book in the series!

Before I begin the full review I wanted to mention that I personally feel that this book should come with a bit of a warning – I don’t think this is a book for anyone under the age of 16. It essentially deals with sex slavery (with a supernatural twist) and themes of rape and abuse throughout. Although, to be clear rape does not happen in the book! Actually, there is extremely limited sexual content in The Rush altogether, just one kiss which really surprised me. But because of the themes in the book I personally don’t think that it is suitable for younger readers.

Okay onto the review. . . The main reason that I loved The Rush was because of Rachel’s amazing ability to write characters that evoked real feelings in me. I loathed Nix, like I really wanted to throw-up every single time his name was mentioned. I also had a healthy amount of hate for Ivy’s mother, along with all the other women in the group. But mostly, I absolutely loved Ryder, he is amazing! And do you know what makes me feel this more than anything else? Ivy and Ryder only kiss once (once!) in the whole book and I still feel that the connection they share is one of the best that I have read! The feelings and emotions that the characters elicited in me really are a tribute to Rachel’s writing.

Oh Ryder, how I love you! #No1BookBoyfriedOfAllTime (and he’s not even her boyfriend!!) That’s all I have to say on the matter of The Guy. . .
