I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I have loved Noah Lake from the very moment I started RUSH. My heart soared over his story. When I heard we were getting a novella, I am not sure how to truly put into words how excited I was. Because Noah? His story inspires. Gives hope. And this novella? It was everything I never knew I needed, but so glad it came to be.
“The light in my darkness. The reason I live instead of exist. You are the dawn of my every new day.”
If you’ve read Rush you know that Noah makes a huge sacrifice to be the man he believes Charlotte deserves. But what we don’t know are the details of this journey. In Endless Possibility, we are placed in the most vulnerable time in Noah’s life. As he waded through the darkness, he found his light in Charlotte. Noah puts his pride aside and truly embraces the truth of his blindness. He wants to live, no longer exist. He wants to love. Wholeheartedly. Unconditionally. And the only way to do this is to let go.
“Because the idea of failure, of living without her in my life, was a nightmare worse than blindness.”
Nothing is held back in Endless Possibility. You understand Noah’s inner battles. You FEEL his struggle. His struggle to live even with his circumstances. The author brings you inside Noah’s darkness. This journey breaks him. But there is one thing that allows him to not break completely. To persevere. And that is Charlotte. She is literally his sunshine on his darkest days. You truly do not understand the profoundness of his love for Charlotte. Until now. His love endures. His love is never ending. His love is breathtaking. He loves relentlessly. Unashamed. His love triumphs.
“Everything. Every breath. Every beat of my heart was for her.”
The writing is flawless. We the readers are effortlessly placed inside the pages of Noah’s story. Inside his heart. And most importantly inside his soul. The words are magical. Powerful. Moving. Inspiring. The author brilliantly executes a heart stopping beautiful story where a man does the most self less thing to earn the love of his life. But he soon learns that he never had to earn her. Charlotte was embedded in his soul the moment she became his.
“Charlotte owned that particular piece of me. Hell, she owned all of me, heart and soul...”
I am vague on the plot as this is HIS story. And what an honor to truly see inside of his heart. Is there a man that loves as fiercely as Noah Lake? I am not so sure. Noah loves Charlotte with a love that makes you want to weep. He loves from the very depths of his soul. His heart is beautiful. Brave. Intoxicating. To say I loved Endless Possibility is an understatement. The love between Charlotte and Noah challenges all thoughts on love and all it is capable of overcoming.

To be blind is not miserable; not to be able to bear blindness, that is miserable. --John Milton
Charlotte Conroy, Juilliard-trained violinist, was on the cusp of greatness when tragedy swooped down on dark wings, crushing her hopes and breaking her heart. The music that used to sing in her soul has grown quiet, and she feels on the verge of setting down her violin for good. To pay the bills, she accepts a job as a personal assistant to a bitter, angry young man who’s been disabled by a horrific accident …
Noah Lake was an extreme sport athlete, journalist and photographer. He roamed the world in search of his next adrenaline high, until a cliff-dive left him in a coma. He awakes to find his career gone, his dreams shattered to pieces, his world an endless blackness that will never lift.
Charlotte begins to see that beneath Noah’s angry, brittle exterior is a young man in a pain. She is determined to show him that his life isn’t over, that he has so much to live for, never dreaming that she would become the only light in his darkness, or that he would help her find the music in hers.
The life he knew is over. The life she wants is just out of reach.
Together, they must face their fears and rediscover what it means to really live.
RUSH is Book III in the City Lights Series, and each can be read as a standalone.
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
My heart continues to beat over this story. WEEKS later as I write this review. This book simply gave me LIFE. From the moment I started until the very last page, Rush breathed air into my literary self that I never knew I needed. This book? It was EVERYTHING.
“Noah and I were like planets orbiting the same star: on similar trajectories, but only crossing paths once in a great while.”
Charlotte Conroy is a talented violinist that trained at Julliard. Music simply lives in her heart. When tragedy strikes, she is left broken. A shattered version for what she once was. Music has lost it’s meaning as her life has completely changed. Noah Lake is a renowned sport athlete, journalist, and photographer. He lives life on the edge at all times. This life style takes a turn for the worst and Noah is left angry, bitter, and in the dark. Circumstances cause Noah and Charlotte to cross paths. Charlotte becomes his caretaker. Little do they know that this unlikely pairing would be the spark to change everything in their lives.
“It’s amazing how you can feel so lonely without ever being alone.”
Noah is against Charlotte being his caretaker. He has scared off every single nurse and knows he can do it with her. But Charlotte needs this job. To survive. And she is determined to see this through. Noah’s words and actions hurt. But Charlotte has been through pain. What Noah throws at her is nothing compared to the heartache she deals with everyday. But she is no fool. Charlotte sees Noah. She recognizes his internal battles as she tries to battle her own. Noah doesn’t like that she sees through him. He wants nothing to do with her. Until he realizes that he must learn to live through the darkness rather than live within it. And he realizes that perhaps Charlotte is learning to do the same.
“Maybe. Maybe is gradations of darkness. The sweetest torture. Maybe is hope.”
My heart soared over this story. SOARED. You immediately become emotionally invested in Noah and Charlotte’s story. You feel their pain. You understand their grief. Without realizing it at first, Noah and Charlotte connect as they both are mourning a life they have lost. They gradually find themselves slowly falling. It’s truly the most beautiful love story. I won’t give details, but this is seriously the epitome of true romance. I cried. I laughed. I lived. I left my heart with Noah and Charlotte.
“How do you do that?” he breathed. “How do you know what to do and say so that I feel...?”
“So that you feel what?”
“Whole. You make me feel like I have a shot at something more than this misery.”
Let’s talk about the writing. It is brilliant, captivating, and if love could speak, it would echo the words of this book. The love in this story knows NO boundaries. Their love prevails. Overcomes. Their love is powerful, overwhelming. Their love triumphs. It endures. Their love simply shatters the norm. How can two broken people find their wholeness in the other? Noah and Charlotte are unlike any hero and heroine I have ever read. I’m in awe of their strength. Amazed in the resilience of their spirits. They both have faced adversity on a level that many people could never even imagine. This is not your average broken people love story. It goes so much deeper. You are in the darkness with both characters and you will FEEL when their light comes. When their souls awake. You as the reader are fully immersed in the lives of the characters and every obstacle they must overcome.
“Noah’s kiss seeped into my cracks, filled all my broken places. I felt it in the marrow of my bones.”
Rush is a beautiful, heartfelt, thought provoking romance about love, loss, and learning to LIVE. To live beyond existing. It was real. While their love was never easy, their story is inspirational. Emotions are high in this book. It MOVED me. The author breathes life into her characters and I enjoyed every moment. Rush attests to love and all it encompasses. Love always wins.
“You steal my breath away, Noah, and what you’re feeling is me, trying to catch it back, but I never can. Not when you’re this close to me.”
