Product Description

Product Description

A life not her own—A future already decided.

Every facet of Ivy Pierce’s life is meticulously planned out and plotted. Cynical and jaded by sixteen, Ivy’s only hope is to escape the legacy she was born into.

She has a plan, a carefully thought out, feasible plan. She just has to play by the rules until everything falls into place. Unfortunately as predictable as her life can be, she never sees Ryder Sutton coming. He tumbles into her life unimpressed and untouched by her and the life she lives. He’s an enigma to her. A gorgeous, frustrating, sincere mystery and a complete phenomenon in the ugly world she lives in.

What blooms between them is a fiercely intense attraction that cannot be ignored. Even though they would both be better off without each other—Even if both their lives depend on staying apart.

HASH(0xa44b8558) out of 5 stars another one of those half books, not a real series April 12 2013
By Mr. Thomas A. Mckewen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got conned again buying this. It is another one of those half books being sold as a series. It ends without any real conclusion and without any lead in to another book. It is simply a book stopped at a random page so you have to buy the rest of the story. On principal I will not be buying anything more from this author as I felt ripped off in the way this is being marketed.

I could not believe it the same day as I purchased this I purchased one called Collide and it was the same story, half a book not a real book at all.

Not recommended to anyone who wants to get value for money. Wait till the put it all in a box set (one real book) and if it is priced as a single book then try it.

HASH(0xa4c9fc18) out of 5 stars Unique and addicting - But not a complete story/series June 12 2013
By hollieanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying, I normally try to steer clear of the YA genre, and anytime I read a synopsis that involves teenagers or high school I stop there, and move on. It seems like most books in that genre tend to follow a similar plot of numerous books previously written. After a while, they all just started to feel the same, ya know?
I started out just reading the sample of this book, because my curiosity got the best of me. It pulled me in, so I decided to continue. The next thing I knew I'd completed the whole first book. It just pulls you in. The character depth was amazing. The story line was beyond original. This is the first book I had ever read about a siren. I loved the Greek mythology references as well. I cannot wait to read more in this series!

***Update after original post***
I just went to the writers blog, and see book 2 isn't due to be released until October 2013. I enjoyed book 1 and all, but I read a lot, and in 4 months, I doubt my interest in this series will be as strong, so most likely, even though I enjoyed book 1, I won't be reading more in this series. Long gaps in between book releases just personally don't work for me.

***2nd update***
I originally rated this book a 5 star read..........while I did enjoy this book, It was a not a complete story therefore I feel the need to drop my rating. This was not a complete story, and will only leave you frustrated while waiting for book 2, that still has not been released. I tried to wait for a book 2, but as we see, it's now January 2014 (I read book 1 in June 2013) and I see no book 2 available. At this point, it has simply been so long since reading book 1, and I read so often, I've lost all interest in continuing this series. I would not read book 2 now if given to me for free. Far too much time has passed, and I have whole heartedly lost interest in this "series". I wish I had not wasted my money on book 1 since it was only a partial part of a story. I also find it annoying that this publication date has been changed on Amazon to November 29, 2013 when I purchased this on June 11, 2013?

HASH(0xa61a0e70) out of 5 stars Nothing to offer here June 8 2013
By Diana Vincent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Trying to find a new aspect to paranormal young adult fiction by drawing on Greek mythology and especially sirens, absolutely did not work for me. Not only did I find Ivy, the female protagonist obnoxiously whiny and un-likeable, but could not sympathize with her lot in life; it was never clear why she didn't rebel or even run away. And the male protagonist - interesting how he always turns up wherever Ivy happens to be, even though he's supposedly in love and going out with another girl. The only reason I finished the book was a morbid curiosity to see just where the author was going with her theme, and I can't say I was too surprised that I found the answer to be 'nowhere'.

HASH(0xa4d157d4) out of 5 stars Another fantastic book! March 24 2013
By Savannah - Published on Amazon.com

Once again, Rachel Higginson has proven why she has quickly become on of my favorite authors very fast. This is another great book, that I'm positive only shows that she is creating another amazing series that will take her readers on an exciting journey. This book was a bit different from the star-crossed series, in that it was a bit more grittier and deeper on emotional levels (if that makes sense, lol). Ivy is the type of girl who seems like she has everything; she's beautiful, has money, and is the person all the girls envy and all the guys want. The problem with all this is Ivy is emotionally and mentally broken. She has no help because of the secret world she's been forced to live in, and let me tell you, her world is dark and extremely twisted. As she's forced back to public school half way through her Junior year, she gets the things she never thought she would ever truly have.... friends. Real, true friends who actual care about her. Oh yeah, and she gets Ryder. As her black world begins to darken even more, Ryder is the only one who gives her the only things she has ever asked for in life. Hope and possibly love.

HASH(0xa7625804) out of 5 stars Little slow to start, but worth the read! Dec 1 2013
By Mandy @ I Read Indie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
THE RUSH is not my most favorites of Higginson's. But it was good. It is definitely a different take on Sirens. Of course, I haven't read too many books about Sirens to compare it to. And I think the only ones I have read were mainly about Mermaids. So for a story solely about Sirens, I think is different and unique. And all in all this was a good read.

My problem? Gosh, it sounds so weird saying that because I have never had a problem before with her work per se, but with this one I did. I did however have problems with infuriating characters *cough* Kiran *cough* (From another series of hers) The whole book I felt like there was something I had overlooked from the beginning. Like the answer to all life's problems was dangling before me at arm's reach and I couldn't quite grasp it. I disliked that I had to go nearly the entire book before we were let in on Ivy's secret even though it was practically spelled out for us the whole time. Sure hints were thrown out at us, but we didn't have all the info we needed, so it all came off as confusing. I just couldn't enjoy the book like I had hoped to.

*Waits for Rachel to wipe clean any evidence of our friendship*

I did however enjoy the characters...all of them! From Ivy to Ryder to Chase to Phoenix. Heck I even liked Nix to a certain extent. He definitely added the creep factor to the story and made things very interesting. But Ivy and Ryder were spectacular characters. I loved how they interacted and my feelings were instant for them both. I just adored them.

This wasn't a kiss. This was an epiphany. My moment of clarity.
My salvation.

A good story that starts out rather slow but picks up speed half way in. It is a book that keeps your interest and eager to find its secrets. Secrets that are well worth the wait. I am absolutely anticipating book 2. I have to know what becomes of Ivy. Will she be able to find the freedom she so desperately seeks and escape the madness she calls life? Guess we will just have to see.
