REVIEW ➞ Rushed by Aurora Rose Reynolds


Cybil is the queen of bad timing. First, her fiancé breaks up with her days before their wedding. Next, she’s stuck going on a couples retreat in the Montana wilderness alone. And worst of all, now she’s fighting a growing attraction to the wilderness retreat’s rugged owner, Tanner.

Tanner has built his wilderness adventure service on a few key principles: never take unnecessary risks, never put anyone’s life in danger—and never, ever sleep with a client. The arrival of a beautiful new visitor, however, might mean bending the rules.

Two people looking for anything but romance may have just bumped into their soul mates. In the Montana wilds, any misstep can spell danger. Cybil and Tanner just have to decide if they’re brave enough to face their next adventure.

I have no idea how the hell I’m going to survive the next few days without doing something stupid, like asking him to kiss me.


From page one of this book I was HOOKED. I  couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it in one sitting.

Tanner is the perfect mixture of alpha male and sweet. Seriously, the man is perfect. It is impossible not to instantly fall in love with his character. He came from a rough background, but has spent his entire life working hard to make sure the future is better than his past. Cybil has had some bad luck in her life, but she is still going. I love that she isn’t afraid to go on an outdoor couples retreat alone, sure it was nonrefundable but she could have just taken the loss.

The moment Tanner and Cybil meet they don’t get off on the right foot, however, the second meeting there is a change. I love the instant connection between the two of them. Tanner became instantly protective over Cybil, but not in an overbearing way. There were so many sweet moments between them as the both go to know each other and they learned that they work pretty well together, too.

There is some drama in the book, however, I appreciated the fact that there wasn’t unnecessary drama that created a rift between Tanner and Cybil. I loved seeing them work through it all together versus apart and making themselves miserable in the process.

I am already DYING for book two in this series and can’t wait to go on another adventure!
