Holly learned the hard way to never depend on a man for anything. Now, of all men, it’s the last one she wants to see, and the only one she needs. Her father has gone missing in the Bitterroot Mountains and she could use someone with tracking skills to help find him.
For Holly and Adam, each with their ghosts, a trek this desperate, this unpredictable, and this intimate, will have its share of risks—including opening their hearts one more time.
"Let's switch," she said after a while. "I'll drive, you keep a watch out." He shook his head and kept driving. "Why?" she asked. "Because I'm a girl?" "No, because you drive like a girl. No, scratch that. That's insulting." "Yes," she said. "Thank you. It is insulting." "Because you drive like a granny." "What? I drive perfectly fine." "Yes, for an eighty-year-old granny," he said. She choked. "And how do you know that?" "I've been behind you on the highway with an entire lineup of other people all stuck because you were going like fifty-five." "Which is the speed limit!" "Sixty-five on state highways," he said. "Seventy-five on interstate highways, which is where you were." He paused. "Driving like a granny." "I do not drive like a... Oh, forget it." She went back to the binoculars, but she found she couldn't let it go. "I'll have you know, I actually got a speeding ticket last year." "For driving under the speed limit?" he asked. "No!" She might have smacked him, but she saw the twitch around his mouth. She was amusing him. She hated being amusing. At least in this context. "I want to drive, Adam." He grimaced. And kept driving. "I've been driving since I was fourteen," she said. "That's how old I was when I stole my dad's Bronco and took it for a joy ride." "Yeah, I've head this story from Griffin." He slid her a glance. "You had it in low instead of drive, and you dropped the engine out on Highway 47." "One tiny little mistake," she said.
My only real complaint was that neither of the secondary storylines were fully explored. They added a touch of drama here and there but either didn't go anywhere and were forgotten or wrapped up way too easily and felt anticlimactic. Holly and Adam, though, definitely make up for that!
If you're a Jill Shalvis fan or just love a good contemporary romance you won't want to miss Rescue My Heart. It's full of laugh out loud moments and ones that will seriously touch your heart as you watch these two work through their pasts, their fears and figure out what they really need in life. All together it was a fantastic read that kept me thoroughly entertained and has me excited for the next book in the series!
**Alright so I gotta say something about the cover real quick. It's cute as hell. I'm loving it. But what were they thinking? Other than the font I'd never put it as an Animal Magnetism series book. And no way whoever put it together read the actual book. Because, hello, it takes place in the winter. And it's snowing the entire time. Gah! Seriously though am I the only one that annoys the heck out of? It's like having a bald hero and on the cover the guy has a full head of hair. Just makes me twitch. lol.**
