Rescued by Felice Stevens is a previously released title that was re-edited and had about ten thousand words added to it. I read the original version about a year ago and I thought this version was much smoother.
I’m a sucker for any book with pit bulls, honestly. Of course, Ryder and Jason would have won me over anyway with how sweet and sexy they were. But the dogs helped.
The familial relationships in this book are some of my favorites. Ryder and Landon are amazing together, but Jason’s relationships with everyone in his family are great too. The different dynamics were so interesting.
I need to know more about John the Barkeep! I adore him and want him to be happy. He seems like he has so much hidden beneath the surface.
There is a lot of steam in this book and I loved it. Jason and Ryder have a palpable chemistry that explodes off the page.
Felice Stevens always delivers and Rescued is no different. Ryder, Jason, and the whole gang are a joy to hang out with and I can’t wait for their next book.
Copy provided in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Ryder Daniels is all too familiar with rejection. His parents cut off contact because he’s gay and his boyfriend left him, choosing drugs over love. Aside from his rescued pit bull, his only joy is hanging out with his younger brother. Then his mother does the unthinkable and forbids them to see each other, leaving Ryder devastated and alone. His friends urge him to date, but Ryder would rather throw himself into working at the dog rescue and figuring out a way to see his brother again.
When Jason Mallory’s girlfriend gives him an ultimatum to get married, he shocks everyone by breaking up with her instead. He believes he’s too busy for a relationship now that the construction company he started with his brother is taking off. When he discovers a group of abandoned pit bulls and calls the local dog rescue group to pick them up, an uncomfortable encounter with Ryder causes Jason to question feelings he’s hidden deep inside for years.
Jason and Ryder build a friendship, until an unexpected kiss sparks the attraction they’ve been fighting. Jason gives Ryder unconditional love and helps him reconnect with his brother while Ryder shows Jason the passion he’s always missed in relationships. Together they must battle through their family differences and ugly prejudices. Only then can they prove that once you find the right person to love, there’s no turning back.
