    From the very beginning I was completely enchanted with this story, which featured one of the most unique, hilarious and adorable meet-cutes I have read in a long time. And that set the stage for the entire book. I can't decide who I was drawn to more. Beatrice with her broken heart and penchant for endearingly unorthodox insults? Or the mysterious, scarred, down-on-his-luck Huxley; the illusionist who can't seem to help being charmed by Beatrice's eccentricities.

    I’ve loved every book I’ve read from Kelly Siskind but truth be told, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started

    . In all honesty, magicians and “magic” in general have never really been my jam, but I consider myself an open minded kinda gal and I knew if anyone could make it work for me, Ms. Siskind could. Little did I know the Marlow Brothers and their new hastily acquired magician’s assistant, Bea, would prove to be so entertaining.

    Beatrice “Bea” Baker is having what most would deem a craptastic kind of day. Her boyfriend deciding he’d like to date other people makes him a jerk. Kicking her out of the apartment they share after only 4 (count ‘em 4) days in a new city makes him a complete and total douchebag. Especially considering her prince of a father cleaned out her bank account and gambled away her future. Needless to say, our girl Bea is down on her luck and alone. Enter a New Orleans bar, a vat of lemon drop martinis and an intriguing cape worn by an even more intriguing magician and things may be looking up. Of course, nothing ever seems to run smoothly for Bea and soon a case of mistaken car identity has her dealing with one pissed off magician.

    Huxley Marlow’s life seems to have lost its magic. Yeah yeah, I know the cheese factor is strong with that statement, considering Huxley’s professional magician, but it just so happens to be true. Family problems, money problems and a magic act that brings in less and less paying customers every day means Huxley has a lot on his plate. When he encounters the brightest, shiniest (albeit drunk off her ass) woman he’s ever met, he thinks his luck’s about to change. When he catches that same woman keying his car a short time later, he’s pretty sure his life still sucks. Little does he know the always smiling Bea is about to rock his entire world.

    was more than just an entertaining read for me. With its offbeat characters and untraditional setting, it took me back to a time when I was first discovering authors like Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Jennifer Crusie and I simply loved it. If you’ve read my reviews before, you might’ve picked up on the fact that I’m a wee bit snarky and NOT the biggest fan of saccharine-sweet characters. Bea, with her relatable flaws and hint of snark, made it work for her. Her quirky personality and positive attitude had me loving her from the beginning. Huxley, his brothers and the world they inhabited all managed to add to the charm quotient.

    I love the world Kelly Siskind created in this book and I was sad to see it end. I can only cross my fingers and hope all of the Marlow Boys, including the ones we haven’t met yet, get their own awesome stories told.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! What an adorable, sweet story. The hero is PERFECTION. A lovely mix of alpha and beta. Loveable characters all around and I can't wait to read about the other characters' love stories, too! I could not put this book down.

    I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    This is one of the most delightfully unique stories I've read in a long time. New Orleans Rush reminded me so much of Jennifer Crusie’s books, with bizarrely quirky characters that immediately make you wonder, “How am I possibly gonna fall in love with this weirdo?” but then you do. I adored Huxley and Bea, as well as Axel, Fox, and Della. I really, really hope this is the first in a series and we get to meet the two missing Marlow boys.

    This is one of the most delightfully unique stories I've read in a long time. New Orleans Rush reminded me so much of Jennifer Crusie’s books, with bizarrely quirky characters that immediately make you wonder, “How am I possibly gonna fall in love with this weirdo?” but then you do. I adored Huxley and Bea, as well as Axel, Fox, and Della. I really, really hope this is the first in a series and we get to meet the two missing Marlow boys. I must admit that I was skeptical about how much I would like this one, which just feels silly in hindsight. In the oversaturated realm of romance novels, this one is a standout. I have no doubt that I will remember this story, and these lovable characters, in a week, a month, a year, two years--you get the picture.

    A heartfelt thanks to NetGalley, EverAfter Romance, and the author for providing an ARC for review.

    I love this trend of illustrated covers, especially when they represent the mood of a book so perfectly as the one for New Orleans Rush does. In this sweet novel we meet Beatrice, an artist who moved to NOLA with her boyfriend only to be left by him a couple of days later. Alone, broke and sad and after drinking a little too much she keys a car she thought belonged to her ex.

    Huxley Marlow is a magician, owns a theater with his two brothers in which they perform almost daily. His assistant just quit his job and when he sees this beautiful girl keying insults into the paint of his vintage car, a car he inherited along with the theater from his father, he blackmails her into becoming his new assistant.

    Huxley doesn't get mad (although he was a little irritated), and I really loved that, he even feels bad for forcing Bea to work for him without payment, not knowing that she doesn't have any money. And he doesn't even know half of it. Bea's father, an alcoholic with a lethal gaming addiction cleaned her of her savings and because his daughter isn't the only person he "borrowed" money from, a loan shark is now after her. So can you imagine how bad he is going to feel after learning that little treasure?

    Huxley is a broody one. He's carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. Additionally to his guilt for their father's death, their theater is in such a state that it needs urgent repair. The visitor numbers are low and those who visit his show are uninspired and unenthused so he plays poker frequently to polish up his income. He has taken it upon himself to care for not only the theater but also his brothers, never letting them into the fact how deep their theater is in trouble.

    Huxley is selfless, caring, protective, a real gentleman with an old-fashioned chivalry that you can't help but swoon over. He is so open about his feelings for his Honeybee that it was hard not to fall in love with him. I didn't even try. The moment he met her his whole attitude changed. And I dare you not to grin like a lunatic when Huxley crunches on Bea's breakfast eggs.

    Bea is the sparkle, the rainbow that Huxley needed. Her quirky, sweet composition, the way she faces life with sass and optimism, is the salt in the Marlow brothers' soup and I think every brother fell a little in love with her.

    The only thing that annoyed me a tiny bit was that she kept repeating in her mind that she didn't like that Huxley was playing poker, that she didn't trust he would stop after that last game. I know the author did it to remind us how much Bea hated gamblers but after the third time I think everyone knew the extent of her disgust for them.

    I loved Huxley's brothers so I hope that they'll get a story. Especially Fox, the silent type, intrigues me.

    NEW ORLEANS RUSH is on the lighter side of the spectrum and was a complete delight to read. It's sparkly, romantic, cute, with endearing characters and a lot of laugh-out-loud and sweet moments that will have you smile from ear to ear.
