Summary

Rush: Montgomery Men Series, Book 1

I was running from my husband, a man I thought I’d known.

Running from the hell he had put me through.

He’d nearly destroyed the woman I had once been and

I would do whatever it took to regain my freedom.

I would lie, and cheat.

I would steal if it meant that I never had to go back there.

I’d run and keep running....

But there was one problem. I hadn’t planned for Ashton Montgomery.

He was a distraction I couldn’t allow. Not if I wanted to stay safe. I had to remain

distant, but he was relentless and had other ideas.

I caved because I hadn’t thought it all through, not in detail.

 If I had I would’ve realized that you can only live in a fantasy world for so long before everything came crashing in around you.

And those lives you’ve destroyed along the way, make you no better than the monster you were trying to break free from.

How could I have been so careless?

It wasn’t meant to turn out this way.

But the rush of my freedom took control and I forgot how important it was to keep the secret of who I had once been.

And now I had nothing.

Only the fear that the man I’d run from would find me again, and finish what he started.

A great listen!

Rush by C. A. Harms was a well written story I enjoyed very much. I liked the characters, their love was heartwarming. What I liked most about Ashton's character was that he managed to be a through and through alpha male but still was considerate of Kensley. He did everything to help her overcome the abuse she suffered by her husband. Kensley was a sweet loving woman, her true spirit never broke despite all she had to endure. Telling the story in dual POVs was the perfect choice. I'm definintely interested in the next books.

I loved Sarah Puckett's narration. She managed the chapters with male POV beautifully. The quality of the recording was also top-notch.

Rush to Listen!

Rush by C.A. Harms is an excellent listen that addresses domestic violence and is a compelling listen. The author is fantastic in how she weaves it in this book of Kensley/Kira and Ashton and Jace. The emotions that are brought out were so realistic. I loved how Kensley had the determination to get away and start over as Kira. Ashton's pursuit of her was so refreshing, and his reactions were realistic of her being hard to get. Sarah Puckett was outstanding narrating this book. She gave distinguishable voices for the characters POV, and the emotions were tangible. I love how she brings the characters to life. Thank you Audiobook Obsession for this fantastic listen. I loved it!!!

ROLLERCOASTER OF EMOTIONS

Gosh! Talk about angst... This book had me completely crazy with all the suspense and angst, but it's really well written that it was so worthy at the end.

I was completely hooked from the begging, I couldn't stop listening and it was just a rollercoaster of emotions.
Both characters were great and the chemistry between them so so amazing and tangible. They are perfect together.

The narration by Sarah Puckett was utterly perfect! I wasn't expecting anything less from her, and of course she did terrific. You were able to hear all the emotions in her voice, her tone and pace so so perfect, which made the book so much perfect and enjoyable.

Instantly was looking for the next book

Sarah Puckett does amazing as both Kiera and Ashton. I really enjoyed Sarah’s performance on all the characters. Such feeling is expressed when I hear her narration of any book. She is excellent❣️

I loved this story and instantly looked for the next book in the series and I’m excited because CA Harms is a newish author for me. I’m excited to hear more about Ashton Montgomery’s brothers and maybe even Lex because all of her characters were amazing and made me want to know them more.

Any book that deals with domestic abuse and helps any woman to try and get out of their situation and shows that there are folks out there who want to help is wonderful to me. It takes a lot of strength to get out and a lot of believing that life can be better. This author does an awesome job at expressing all the emotions involved for Kiera/Kinsley and Ashton and makes it realistic.

Finding true love

Kiera was running away from one powerful man that was abusive and cruel. Then found an other rich powerful man that really loved her. Ashton had to break down her walls and give her hope to love while he protected her from her past. This was a beautiful story of over coming evil. Sarah Puckett is always a pleasure to listen to.

This book had lot of feels. From the first chapter it was good and the twists were interesting. The heroine showed strength against such horrible things and her hero was just that. Overall a great listen but there are so light triggers for people so be warned.

Ashton Montgomery!!! He’s a hero!

Kira Masterson, formerly Kensley Hilman, has been beaten down by her husband Jase for years and she allowed it to happen because Jase could afford to take care of her I’ll father... he is mean and controlling and feeds off of her fear and tears.

She finds out, completely by accident that her father has died... Jase never told her. The woman who tells her about her dad figures out she is abused and helps her get away. The woman’s nephew hides her and keeps her moving for 6 months until she settles in New York...

Ashton Montgomery meets Kira when she serves paperwork from the law office she works at.... He’s smitten by her immediately! She fights the attraction.... but eventually she gives in .... and they fall in love.

There are many more twists and turns to this story ... and they are good ones! I enjoyed this very much and it’s one I will listen to again!

Sarah Puckett has one of THE most expressive voices in the industry. She does SUCH a great job with these characters and their emotions! Should read the phone book and I’d listen to it!!!

Strong

I absolutely love the strength the heroine shown from page one. To stay in a relationship like that because you believed your father was benefiting takes a lot of courage and strength but to leave when the opportunity rises takes even more. I’m so happy that she finds her HEA in the end. If you enjoy storylines that have strong characters that overcome a horrific past, you’ll enjoy this book. As always Sarah did an excellent job with the narrative.

New hair, new man, new lease on life

Kiera finds herself escaping hell, taking on a new identity and starting over. She stumbles into the love and protection she needs in Ashton while dropping off legal documents. He’s a sexy alpha billionaire, you’ve fallen in love with the type before. Their chemistry is instant, the pair could set water on fire.

Lex the fiery best friend may be a little over the top but I want to be his bosom buddy and confidant. Also if anyone stumbles across a set of brother like the Montgomery brothers please slide them my card.

This is definitely a romance with hints of underlying suspense.

I would recommend this to fans of Sleeping With The Enemy(Julia Roberts 1991)

Good emotional book about becoming strong again

The story starts out with a look at the horrors Kinsley had to suffer from and it’s awful. And immediately I felt so bad for her and drawn into her life, hoping for better for her. (I cheered when Kinsley met Adeline. if only all abused women received the help they needed.)

Ashton was mean in the beginning and I wasn’t sure that I would like him. Even emotionally damaged, he was a level of arrogance that I didn’t like. But of course, first impressions could be wrong and he showed strength and emotions that made me eventually really like him.

Kinsley, now Keira, her name in hiding, met Ashton while she was delivering papers for work. Ashton chased Kinsley and eventually, they fell in love. Of course, the lies had to continue because Kinsley had to protect herself. Her history caused issues but eventually, they achieved their HEA. The supporting cast is great, especially Lex, who provides some comic relief. I’m looking forward to revisiting some of these characters in the future books of this series.

Sarah Puckett was fantastic, as expected. As this book was a dual POV, it would have been great to have both a male and female narrator. However, Sarah did a great job playing Ashton (and the other male cast) too.

I received this book from #AudioBookObsessionReviewer.

A terrific start to a series

A story that packs an emotional punch. The story was beautifully written and you feel everything that Kinsley is going through. Ashton is a perfect fit for Kinsley and the narrator did a superb job of capturing their emotions and story. Your past does not have to define your future and the author drives this home throughout Rush. Highly recommended and once you start listening you will not want the story to end. Cannot wait to listen to more.

Kinsley personified

I love audiobooks because they give life to a story. I used to solely a reader but I've found that it's fun to listen to the audiobooks of books I've already had the pleasure of reading. Rush is one of those books I wanted to "revisit".

I found it's almost like taking the adventure for the first time. while it's been years since I read the book, I still remembered the story. I found it refreshing though to listen to it through Sarah Puckett's narration of Kinsley and Ash's thoughts/words.

Rush is brought to life through the narration and given a new breath to my version of Kinsley and even gave Ash his own "voice". Whether you've read Rush before or not, I expect you will fall just as hard for Kins and Ash as I did.

Got to love when someone one is a bad situation gets a second chance for a good life. Ash and Keira nave lots of chemistry. He is so good for her. What Ash and his brothers do to make her safe is heart warming.

New Start

Kiera has to start over to get away and basically runs into Ashton! I loved the story and I loved the other characters in the story as well. A lot of stories don't spend much time on those things. I really enjoyed Lex. I really loved this story didn't want it to end kinda wished there was more when it ended!

Sarah Puckett did a awesome job with the story and really made it enjoyable all the way through.

Poignant and Moving Romance!

Wow, what a raw and powerful story. Kinsley was desperate to help her father and that made her too vulnerable. Now she is on the run from her abusive and controlling husband. Thanks to the kindness of strangers, she has a new look, and a new life. She can never reveal her secrets if she wants to stay alive. But she didn't expect to find a wonderful life with good friends and a sexy, determined lover in Ashton Montgomery. Ashton always gets what he wants but doesn't do relationships. That is until this bold, sweet and sexy woman barged into his office, only to stride out just as quickly. He can't figure out why she intrigues him so. As they get to know each other, their attraction explodes. But Ashton feels that Kinsley has secrets she won't reveal and he doesn't think he can be patient enough to wait for answers. These secrets are tearing Kinsley apart as well and could end up breaking both their hearts. This is a poignant and moving story that is so hard to read at times but Harms tackles this sensitive subject matter with empathy and honesty. Narrator Sarah Puckett has the perfect voice for this story. She makes each character come alive, allowing me to feel all their complex emotions like fear, anticipation, passion and love. This is a great start to the Montgomery Men series. I really liked Ashton's brothers who were so supportive and intriguing. I can't wait to listen to their stories next!

Full package

This book had everything you want in a book. All the feels. Love Ash and K very much. Sarah’s voice is amazing. The only thing that would have made this better would have been adding in a male voice.
