Publisher's Summary

“A fun mixture of magic, sensuality, and iconic pin-up girl style. The romance in New Orleans Rush will leave you smiling and filled with optimism.” (Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient)

Falling for your surly boss is a rotten idea.
Letting him saw you in half is even worse....  

Beatrice Baker may be a struggling artist, but she believes all hardships have silver linings...until she follows her boyfriend to New Orleans and finds him with another woman. Instead of turning those lemons into lemonade, she drinks lemon drop martinis and keys the wrong man's car.  

Now she works for Huxley Marlow of the Marvelous Marlow Boys, getting shoved in boxes as an on-stage magician's assistant. A cool job for some, but Bea's been coerced into the role to cover her debt. She also maybe fantasizes about her boss' adept hands and what else they can do.  

She absolutely will not fall for him, or kiss him senseless. Until she does. The scarred, enigmatic Huxley has unwittingly become her muse, unlocking her artistic dry spell, but his vague nightly activities are highly suspect. The last time Beatrice trusted a man, her bank account got drained and she almost got arrested. Surely this can't end that badly...right?

Light fluffy read

This book was cute.. a tad bit nauseating with all the “my zig zag girl” and “ my magic man” talk. But it was cute. I went into this book blind. I love the cover and that’s enough for me. I am glad that I took a chance on it. It’s not my favorite book but it was absolutely entertaining. I feel like you have to have an open mind when reading this book. The FMC is very whimsical and light headed. She forgives everything and smiles to hide any hurts. Which sounds nice in theory but just isn’t practical and it made her seem kind of dumb when I don’t think she was. So go into this one knowing it’s going to be a little weird and roll with it. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Fluffy, sexy, magical story. reminder to smile

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Here's my tip to the reader. Do not go into this book looking for an epic story. This book was a wonderful escape. A light hearted romp through a sweet romance with minimal danger and risk to the reader. That being said, some of the sexual tension in this story definitely gave me my own butterflies.

Unique storyline, with pretty good narration

The setting here is refreshing and modern, without a billionnaire or a duke in sight, thankfully! Just regular folks. The narrator (Holly Fielding) was pretty good -- she did good male voices, with a variety so that you can distinguish between different male characters. I was a little disappointed that she didn't really do New Orleans accents for the supposedly "native born and bred" brothers (although she did a sort of southern one for Della). Overall, though, very enjoyable.

Okay story - wrong narrator

The narrator spoke took slowly and nearly every sentence sounded like she was asking a question. atowards the later half, she was better. But in the end, she went back to her mono-toned full speech. Her voice is nice, just no inflections. I may have given the story a better rating if it was read more enthusiastically. As for the story, there are two many coincidences to be believable. I did enjoy the story even if my rating doesn't reflect it. I love a happy ending. Slight spoiler: wish the ex boyfriend had a come uppance scene. He deserved some karma.

Fierce and Fabulous! Five Solid Gold Stars

My heart is always pining to fall in love with a new-to-me author, but the falling is are too few and far between. As I listened to New Orleans Rush, my toes began to tingle and sure enough, a new literary crush was born. I adore the strong prose writing with memorable quirky turns of phrase, kneaded together with serious happiness, swoon worthy love, a few dashes of intrigue, and a very very satisfying end. Pair Siskind’s writing with Holly Fielding’s delicious narration and this book become a rare treasure. I just flat-out adore this read. ❤️

Quirky wonderful characters, fun special book

Using a third person point of view, Kelly Siskind tells the story of Bea and Huxley. Bea is so adorable- she is down on her luck and just moved to New Orleans with her boyfriend, who became her ex boyfriend 4 days after moving. She meetings Huxley at a bar. Her thoughts, her dialogue and the banter between Bea and Huxley were so much fun and the amusement began from pretty much the beginning of the book. Both characters were so likable, which made listening to this book a true pleasure. A great quote that showcases Bea’s wonderful personality is, “If music played, she danced.” There is also an amazing supporting cast with the brothers, Fox, Axel and Della. There is humor, a bit of danger but resolution is a fun way that totally fits in with the wonder of this book. I plan to read more of this author’s books because she obviously spends a lot of time writing lovable, quirky characters. Holly Fielding, the narrator, did a great job. Generally calm, especially when she plays the “narrator”, she does a great job introducing emotion for each character at the perfect times. She does a good job differentiating between her as a narrator and playing each of the characters. I received this book from #AudioBookObsessionReviewer.

What a Rush

New Orleans rush was a really interesting book. Beatrice ends up in New Orleans in a very unexpected way, she has loan sharks chasing her, and finds an interesting new job and romance. The story was told in the very magical city of New Orleans, which was a perfect back drop for this story. The romance does get very hot, heavy, and graphic. (A very personal preference but wanted to let others know.) The overall story was engaging, there were parts that were a tad slow for me. I enjoyed Holly Fieldings voice a lot, but I could have done with more animation and inflection throughout parts of the book. I received a copy of this book at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

I'd like to see more books about the brothers!

The story was cute. I had a little bit of issue with the third person way it was written, but that’s more a personal thing than any reflection on the story itself. I also ended up speeding up the audiobook to 1.25 speed. I prefer to listen at regular speed unless the narrator is slow, so this one required the speeding up. I was clued into a treat I had not discovered in the three times I’ve been to New Orleans, and that is beignets with cream filling. Something I’ll just have to go back to try. There were some of the things that frustrate me, her not reading all the messages at the end, him letting someone else put doubts in his head, but I do have to say that the whole death scene at the end was a big surprise that I didn’t see coming! Now I don’t see that it is a series, but I would definitely be interested in reading about Huxley’s brothers finding their own romance!

Interesting story

I really enjoyed this story. It definitely kept my interest the entire time. I loved all the characters. Beatrice and Huxley are both going through a hard time and they can help each other. I feel bad for their struggles but I love the friends and family dynamic and their always sticking together. The narration is great, I definitely recommend this book. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

"Funny, Enjoyable, Magical, Romantic, Comedy"

I have to admit when I looked at the title, read the blurbs on it, I was expecting something different. Kelly Siskind didn't disappoint me with this story. You have Beatrice, a young lady down on her luck, got kicked out of her place by a cheating bf, so no place to live. Then there's Huxley, a magician 🎩 who performs with two of his brothers, in a building that requires a crap load of maintenance; in and outside, A.S.A.P. on a limited timetable. So, after Bea made a VERY bad mistaken of identity of a car, she is now an magician 🎩 assistant to Huxley on stage; one problem, she has stage fright (😱). How do they make it all work?Well, I recommend you get the book for yourself and listen. I did enjoy the final storyline and the narrator Holly Fielding does a wonderful job expressing each character. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

Magically charming and Spell-boundingly cute!

This book was quirky and different in all the best ways! The characters were fun, insightful, and relateable. I feel like there were many things about Bea and Huxley that everyone can connect with. The connection and chemistry between the characters was off the charts and their quirky personalities made it all the better! I felt this was a great light-hearted listen that I will definitely be revisiting when I need a good laugh! The narration was great! This was the first time listening to Holly Fielding and was not disappointed. Her tone, speed, and infliction was perfect and pleasant to listen to. 🎧AudiobookObsession🎧

Magical

This was book was funny and light, really easy to listen to. I  liked my the way they meet and how she ends up being his assistant which help her  to overcome her fear. Huxley brothers are really cool, both of them and I hope they get a book of their own. After finishing the book, I really want to have some beignets . . . The narration of Holly Fielding was so good, It's my first time listening to her narration and she did a pretty good job with it, I will definitely be listening more of her narrations.

New Orleans Rush

Beatrice finds herself in another bad predicament, which leads to a bad choice. Now she will be working for Huxley and the Marvelous Marlow brothers. The thing is they are all struggling and perhaps this is going to be the perfect arrangement for them all. Huxley needs to get out of his funk and Beatrice is the one to show him the way. The book is full of quirky happenings and life. Its a sweet story with a great HEA. Holly Fielding does a nice job on the narration Thanks for the recommendation Audiobook Addiction.

love and magic

this story took a bit to get into. It.started out slow and almost didn't keep my interest. However I kept on. This story is about a magician and a girl. Two very unlikely characters who meet up in a bar. she is homeless due to Bf breakup. He is a scared magician. she helps him through his troubles. the narrator was good. Great voice and sound 🎧audiobookobsession
