    FIVE HIGH FLYING STARS!!! This book is unique, quirky, lovely, and oh so swoony. It made my heart soar like The Greatest Showman but with some sizzling chemistry and humor between the characters like in The Hating Game. If you're looking for something fresh in romance, THIS IS THE BOOK!

    The setting is so cool, being set in New Orleans. The characters' jobs are unique, I mean when is the last time you read a romance between a magician and his assistant? It's got the cool vibe of the magic heist

    The setting is so cool, being set in New Orleans. The characters' jobs are unique, I mean when is the last time you read a romance between a magician and his assistant? It's got the cool vibe of the magic heist movie NOW YOU SEE ME and the heart of The Kiss Quotient. The romance world NEEDS THIS BOOK.

    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.

    Nah, y'all, forget Huxley. *

    * was so thoroughly charmed by Beatrice's eccentricities and, really, this entire story. It's so original, and so smartly written, with a sort of affectionately humorous tone that made me smile

    and let loose the occasional out-loud giggle. The characters are so wonderfully offbeat and genuine, and I loved them so fiercely. Beatrice is the type of heroine I want to carry around in my pocket forever. I wholeheartedly

    her indomitable spirit, sassy personality, and heart as big as the world. And Huxley was her perfect opposite - serious, surly, and stiff. As a couple they were perfection, their chemistry evident from the very first meeting, and their sweet slow burn warmed my heart. No lie, my heart attached itself to them almost immediately and it never once let go.

    I also adored the dynamic between the

    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. I must admit that I was skeptical about how much I would

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.

    5 magical stars under a magician's cape.

    Before I write anything, seriously, go pre-order this book, like now.

    This was my first Kelly Siskind book, and she was kind enough to let me read an advanced copy, even if I didn't know what to expect. And I'm so glad she did. I had been in some kind of reading slump lately, and I didn't really like any of the books I've been reading (with a couple of exceptions), but this book...

    This was my first Kelly Siskind book, and she was kind enough to let me read an advanced copy, even if I didn't know what to expect. And I'm so glad she did. I had been in some kind of reading slump lately, and I didn't really like any of the books I've been reading (with a couple of exceptions), but this book...

    This book trapped me since the first pages. New Orleans, Bea's misfortunes, Huxley's cozy cape, an unfortunate incident with the wrong Mustang, friendship, polka dots, family, off-the-charts-sexual tension, bad guys, vampires?, good guys, guilt, naughty guys, scars, promises, a magical show, bees, a beetle, ANGST!, a badly drawn unicorn, a phone that never works, and lots of love. SO. MANY. FEELS. I. DON'T KNOW. WHAT. TO. DO. WITH. THEM.

    This book is sweet, and funny, and angsty, and sad, and happy. I smiled, I laughed, I felt for them, I cried, my heart shrinked a couple of sizes at some point but, unilke other stories, the main characters actually talk when they recognize the danger of reacting rushly.

    I've fallen in love with Bea and Huxley, but also with Fox, Axel and Della. I'd love to read more about them!

    As soon as my physical copy arrives, it'll go directly to the pile of my favourite books, and I'll re-read it more than once. I also hope they can turn it into an audiobook because I need it. Seriously.

    I'm always drawn to books about NOLA and this one was no exception, however, I was a little disappointed and I had a hard time at first engaging with the story and characters.

    Huxley is a magician and comes from a magic family. They even have their own theater and all that is fine. What I had a hard time with is that he walks around with his cape and top hat on and Bea was entranced by that! Well, different strokes and all that.

    I'm always drawn to books about NOLA and this one was no exception, however, I was a little disappointed and I had a hard time at first engaging with the story and characters.

    Huxley is a magician and comes from a magic family. They even have their own theater and all that is fine. What I had a hard time with is that he walks around with his cape and top hat on and Bea was entranced by that! Well, different strokes and all that.

    Huxley and Bea meet in a bar...she's had the worse luck so she's getting a bit drunk. When she leaves the bar, she sees her ex on a date and then sees his prized possession which is his car. She decides to key it only it's not her ex's car, it's Huxley's. He decides to have her work off the damages by being his assistant.

    Bea is as different as Huxley is so they really are a good match. She's a painter and quite "expressive" in her actions and clothing. Huxley doesn't know she's homeless and sneaking into the theater after closing.

    Things evolve between the two of them but then something comes to light that Bea just cannot deal with so they remain friends...and roommates. 😉

    There's some drama on both sides...her with her father and him with trying to keep the theater afloat.

    I quite enjoyed Huxley's two brothers that we got to know, Fox and Axel. Unfortunately, the author does not have any plans for writing books for them at this time.

    I was happy with the way things ended and if you want even more, sign up for the author's newsletter and you will get an epilogue. (I never understand why they don't just include one...seems like a must have nowadays!)

    I'm abandoning this at about 25%. I like lots of the parts of this, but the background is kind of killing it for me. Or maybe it's the worldbuilding? Sigh. I like the characters, mostly. Bea's caring and upbeat personality really appeal and her courage in facing setbacks is engaging. Huxley is pretty cool, too, as a (actually, physically) damaged guy with lots of responsibility based on his desire to take care of those he cares about and to be good at the legacy of his father that he is

Bea's caring and upbeat personality really appeal and her courage in facing setbacks is engaging. Huxley is pretty cool, too, as a (actually, physically) damaged guy with lots of responsibility based on his desire to take care of those he cares about and to be good at the legacy of his father that he is shepherding.

    But I hate every time Bea's stupid "loan" taken on behalf of her father comes up. It's with a cartoon loanshark imported from really bad detective fiction from the 60s with his "now it's going to cost a

    " threats. I mean, I hate that she derived the "obligation" from her irresponsible father in the first place—the father who

    stole the money she was saving for her education. That she took on the debt to save her father is stupid. That the loanshark is so oozing is ridiculous. Combined they break my engagement with Bea's sense of urgency and fear.

    And I hate every time Hux considers his situation, too. The obligation he feels to support his father's legacy in exactly the same way his father operated is similarly dumb. Being attached to the outdated music breaks any kind of sense, for example. This isn't a museum (or, if it is, it should be handled

    differently). And if your building is falling down around your ears and you're already losing money on your shows and you don't already have a stash of capital to apply to the problem, then your dream is essentially done. There is literally no way in this reality to pull off the "save the theater!" plot at the heart of his story arc. And that's breaking my engagement with Huxley.

    It's a shame, really. I like New Orleans and the story of a stage magician working things out in the Big Easy sounds like something that should have lots of intriguing details to sink my teeth into. But Siskind created such paper-thin backgrounds for these characters that it sucked all of that interest right out of me. Which makes me sad.

    I'm going to add a pity-star to this and justify it based on liking both characters and having a background that

    worked with a little more care. I'm sad it didn't work out, but will be willing to give the author another try in the hopes that the weaknesses of this story aren't present in other works.

    I've been trying to read this for almost two months, when the typical romance novel of this length would only take me a day or two, once I get into it. That's the problem, though, or one of many:

    No matter how intriguing the plot sounded, nothing about these characters or their situations has been able to drag me into the storyline.

    On top of that, I just don't like Bea at all — maybe she improves later on, but at this point, she's entitled and rude. The

    I've been trying to read this for almost two months, when the typical romance novel of this length would only take me a day or two, once I get into it. That's the problem, though, or one of many:

    No matter how intriguing the plot sounded, nothing about these characters or their situations has been able to drag me into the storyline.

    On top of that, I just don't like Bea at all — maybe she improves later on, but at this point, she's entitled and rude. The conflict between her and Huxley literally begins with her getting so smashed that she keys swear words into his car (when he has no money at all to fix it, and his car is sentimentally valuable to him), and then acting

    at the thought of having to work for him to pay it off, when he could easily and justifiably report her to the police and be done with it. Even at this point, while I'm seeing tiny moments of progress in her development, she's still acting bratty and is taking advantage of Huxley's mercy, and it's just... gross.

    If I could power through enough of this book to justify giving it a star rating, it'd probably be 1 or 2 stars. As it is, I'm cutting myself enough slack to drop this one now.
