Harmful Rush is a standalone, full-length novel set in the Remedy world. You do not have to read the first two books to read this book.
Skylark Samuels has a secret.
She’s not a normal teenager, although she plays one in real life. Pretending to be something you’re not isn’t easy, especially in high school where gossip is gold. For years, Sky manages to hide her uniqueness, until one fateful day when she exposes her gift, her curse, and all her fears come to pass. Now instead of going to college near home like she planned, she has to leave town and go someplace where the rumors can’t follow. The plan when she gets there: keep to herself and stay under the radar.
But blending into the background is impossible when local heartthrob Dylan Parks notices her. Even though Sky keeps her distance and doesn’t act like one of Dylan’s adoring fans, he goes out of his way to talk to her. Her. The girl who wants to be invisible.
Sky isn’t immune to Dylan’s charm, but getting close to him is a bad idea. It goes against the promise she made to herself. Besides, if Dylan knew the truth, he wouldn’t want her. If he discovered her secret, he’d treat her differently and possibly fear her. It’s happened before. But the more Sky gets to know Dylan, the harder it is to resist him, until fate intervenes.
A tragic event forces Sky to reveal herself to the one person she’s come to care for, and his reaction is unexpected. For the first time, she doesn’t feel so alone. But what she doesn’t realize is that she’s never been alone. When she finally lets her guard down, someone comes along who threatens to unravel everything, because being normal was never Sky’s destiny.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ My Review ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️
This book gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!!! I adored this story. It was different and unique. Unlike so many paranormal Romance stories.
I was clueless this was part of a series. This is a standalone novel and I never felt like I was missing any information. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this story, this is the first book I've read by this author.
I immediately felt connected to the main character Sky and fell in love with her story. With the paranormal world most stories have been just slightly retold hundreds of times, and I was expecting the "been there, read that" story. This book was compelling and I devoured it! Lest to say, I will be reading the first two books of this series and looking to see what else Debra Doxer has written. This was perfectly balanced with fast-paced, action, funny, romantic, and breath taking moments.
This is one of those books I feel the need to thank the author for creating it. Thank you Debra Doxer for sharing this beautiful story! ? ? ?
