Writing this review proved a difficult task. Why? After reading Chased by Love, which I loved, I was looking forward to reading Rescued by Love so much so, that I chose to read on the weekend when I would have little or no interruptions. I wanted to
savour every moment, but unfortunately, things did not go as planned.
I had a difficult time getting into the story, which is a first for me where the author is concerned. The story was slow to the point that it felt like it was not going anywhere. It was not until about the last 30% that the story picked up.
Developing a connection with the main characters was difficult. Addison had an unhappy childhood even though she lived a privileged life. As an adult, she was determined to prove that she was able to survive without her trust fund. She considered love to be over-rated and denied that she needed it in her life. To prove her theory, she never slept with the same man more than once. Personally, I believed her actions reeked of self-loathing. Initially, I understood her need to be independent, but after some time her actions became frustrating. She refused to accept help when offered for fear it may rob her of her independence. Seriously! That only highlighted her insecurities and her selfishness.
I was not sure what to make of Jake. It was evident that he was a hot, sexy, alpha male with a stubborn streak a mile long, but that was as far as it went. His backstory was severely lacking, which made him an
The romance did nothing for me. Addison spent most of the time that they were together, denying her feelings. They got involved with each other without knowing much about one another. Their connection was more sexual than emotional.
I enjoyed the connection between family and friends, which was the author’s trademark. I never tire of reading about the bonds of family and friendships.
Did I enjoy this installment? : Somewhat.
Would I continue the series? : Most definitely.
Would I recommend this title? Yes! Not every reader has the same taste, and what I find to be mediocre, may be top notch for someone else.
This story was my least
favourite of the series.
