Addison Dahl is excited to return to Elpitha Island for her best friend Gabriella's wedding. A weekend of sun and fun is just what she needs before setting out on her newest adventure--roughing it in the wilderness. Addison is tough, she's independent, and she doesn't "do" feelings toward men. But lately her friend--and Gabriella's brother-in-law--sinfully sexy and ornery-as-hell Jake Ryder has been the star of her late-night fantasies, and she can't get him out of her mind. It doesn't help that the chemistry between them is scorching hot. With any luck, a few days in the wilderness will snap that craziness out of her head.

As a top search and rescue professional, Jake Ryder spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. But there's only one woman he wants, and he's spent the last several months trying to get beautiful, smart, and sassy Addison to give him one sinful night. He's sure one night will lead to more.

The night of the wedding the heat between Jake and Addy ignites, and they're powerless to resist their explosive passion. Wild kisses, sensual touches, and heartfelt conversations brings them closer together, and when the weekend ends, Jake is determined to keep Addy close and make her his. But Addy has other plans...

I need a boy friend and someone to lend me books. I want to read this book
libriamorimiei More than 1 year ago
I loved this book, it's full of humor and passion, the chemistry between the two protagonists is really strong and the setting is amazing, Addison is the daughter of a famous fashion designer, a possessive father that left no freedom of choice to her and her mother. She is very independent and doesn't want to get married for fear of repeating the mistakes of her parents. She needs a very intriguing and intelligent man but she can't find anyone able to arouse her interest. The only able to succeed seems to be Jake but manages to defeat the desire to Addison's independence? The characters are adorable and well developed. Jake is sexy and charming, he loves to protect and defend women and her family. He's very romantic even if doesn't like challenging stories but his feelings towards Addy are so overwhelming as to make him change his mind. It was great to see grow and chnge their love story. It 's a very engaging story, I read the whole book in one sitting, I could not put it down.

Jake must find a lost woman. BUT Addison is NOT lost. She has lived quite the grandiose life and she has decided to change.... to change her pampered facade and show her Father and herself that she can make it on her own. Both, Jake and Addison are... shall we say a little headstrong! The interactions between them is entertaining. One thing for sure, Melissa is persistant in developing interesting and lovable characters. She is in the know on how to keep her readers entertained.

If you like contemporary romance then this is a book you are going to like! This is the fourth book in the Love in Bloom series, but it is also a great stand alone read. I love all Melissa Foster’s books. Jake and Addison who are loners which makes their falling in love quite a battle. Although it was a battle that I absolutely loved and felt it was what brought the book together. Another thing I really enjoyed in this book was the chemistry between Jake and Addison. My goodness were they hot together! I mean mega steam coming right off the pages HOT! I loved every single bit.

Addy and Jake seemed to be the perfect pair, with the same wants and needs and neither one of them being all that shy about expressing those needs and wants. But while Jake is ready for more than one night, Addy thinks differently, trying to convince herself that she doesn't want what Jake wants. I liked that she was independent and wasn't afraid to be a single woman with a healthy appetite for sex. Not every woman, after all, is looking for a white picket fence and one man to spend the rest of her life with. It did get to a point, however, that Addy became more of a stubborn heroine, someone who was overly insistent on sticking to something that, had she been honest with herself and with Jake, she had already begun to change her mind about. On the other hand, I really liked Jake. He was persistent but not overbearingly so, and I adored how he was with his family, especially since one the consistent overall themes of the series is love for family. While this may not have been my favorite book in the series, Rescued by Love was a good romance read, with tamer sex scenes than I would have anticipated. Four stars. ♥

Addison and Jake are one night stand pros, no feelings involved, no worries about the next day. That is until they hook up together. After circling each other with innuendos for months it finally happens and it is more than they ever expect. The “rules” are broken and everything changes for them. I am not big on one night stands but it seems to work for them. I enjoyed the circling of these two and it was impossible not to feel the sparks between the two of them well before they hooked up. The heat and attraction was amazing, maybe one of the hottest that Melissa Foster has ever written. Once again, the family and friendships are amazing. They are still my favorite parts of the Love in Bloom series. They are real and true. They support, love, and accept each other without question.

I’m deeply in love with all the Ryders! I mean it! Every single one! Jake Ryder is a SAR professional, he’s committed to his job because there’s nothing more he loves than being outdoors, he’s also, like all the Ryders brothers, a gorgeous alpha male who has been lusting after Addy, his sister in law’s best friend, for months. Even though, he’s been relentless pursuing and charming her, Addy’s still resisting the chemistry between them and that’s driving him crazy. Addy is a stubborn independent woman, she’s the queen of one night stands and she’s perfectly happy in her skin. But then she meets Jake, she knows she can’t give in to their mutual attraction because Jake is her best friend’s brother in law and they keep running into each other. Jake is off limits, even if he’s trying so damn hard to drive her crazy. At Duke and Gabriella’s wedding, hot steamy looks, tequila and a little bit if jealousy finally tear down Addy’s resistance but after one night, Addy can’t keep Jake out of her mind. And Jake, after finally having Addy where he wants her, realizes that he’s in for the fight of his life. Jake and Addy are two of a kind, really perfect to each other and I couldn’t stop reading their story. It was so intense that I just couldn’t put my e-reader down! The banter, the flirting, the chemistry between them was absolutely incredible. I loved Jake so much, he’s the perfect mix of sweet, alpha, protective, romantic and sexy. I also loved all the Ryder family moments (especially Cash & Sienna and Trish & Boone because they are still my 2 top favorite couples in this series). Rescued by Love can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the complete series. Melissa Foster delivered another perfectly balanced hot, steamy, emotional romance. I literally can’t wait for Gage’s book!

**I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.** This book is about Jake Ryder. His brother is Duke and his sister is Trish from previous boooks and the story starts at Duke's wedding to Gabriela. Gabriela is also the heroine's best friend, Addison/Addy. Both Addy and Jake have the major hots for each other. They have been flirty and atrracted to each other for months, in fact neither can stop thnking about each other and have not been involved with anyone else, even if they have not actually gotten together yet. So whats stopping them? Addy loves Gabriela and she loves Duke's family and so she doesn't want a fling with Jake if it will affect her relationship with Gabriela. Jake proposes they do a one night stand to get it out of their system. Do they do it? If they do will it work? Well whatever they decide, they spend a whole weekend together because after Duke's wedding the Ryders also decide its the perfect time for Trish and Boone to get hitched too. So most of this book are a big party with family events with the whole Ryder family and not one but two weddings. Amongst the family events is the strong attraction Addy and Jake face and what they decide to do with it. Image may contain: 3 people, people sitting and text Once Jake and Addy face their attraction, he is worried about this 10 day adventure/hike she is planning on going all alone as a first time hiker. Jake is this Search and Rescue guy and so he knows the dangers and he is terrified for Addy to do it all alone. But she insists on doing it alone. So that is a big conflict in the story and while the adventure is a big part of the story, 70% of the book are the weddings and only the last 30% is when she goes hiking and her adventure while hiking. At times I did not like Addy. She is very honest about her sexuality and One night stands are very common in her life. She fears commitment and marriage because her parents have a very bad relationship. I don't tend to like heroines who are so slutty, I guess and she owns her sluttiness. Despite that I ended up liking her by the books end and I could understand what she was trying to do with her 10 day adventure. At times she seemed silly and stubborn because who goes alone hiking/camping for ten days as a newbie? Usually they end up hurt or worse. But I also undertood that she had this strong need to test herself. As to Jake I LOVED him!!! He made this book. He is an alpha. He is sexy, sweet and a total romantic and when he decides he wants Addy, OMG he really goes for it. I really fell in love with both Jake and Addy as a couple in this book and I totally felt they were made for each other.

“Rescued by Love” is full of sizzling chemistry and tension, flirting, good friends, and family. Something that I love about Foster’s books are that although there are main characters that may have some seriously hot moments, there is also a huge presence of family morals and love. Moreover, even if you don’t read every book in a series, she provides enough back story so that there is no confusion about what is going on with the various family members. I must say that I almost always fall in love with her leading men, but the women are always just as strong and likable characters as the men. Jake and Addy’s story was absolutely fantastic from the first page and I never got up from my chair until I finished the last word. This book is a smart, funny, and heart-warming contemporary romance with just the right amount of hot, steamy scenes. I have absolutely nothing to say that is negative about this fabulous story! *Thanks to Beck Valley Book Tours for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Melissa Foster has delivered yet another fantastic story with Rescued by Love. I honestly don't know how she can do it time and time again - out of the books I have read no two are the same and that I think is a feat in itself considering how deep her characters and books go. Addison or Addy is such a strong, fiercely independent woman who is not looking for anything or someone for that matter to hold her back from doing what she wants on her terms, and she has been doing everything in her power to put off Jake not only because they have grown to become friends but the fact that her best friend has just married Jake's brother and she doesn't want things to get awkward or for anyone to find out. After they hook up at the wedding Jake cant get Addy out of his head and he knows deep down that she feels the same way but she is intent on refusing to believe that they could be anything more than a one-night-get-it-out-of-their-system hook up. "We are a thing, Addy. Even if you say we're not, you can't escape us any more than I can." Jake is also treading on new territory as he has never wanted a relationship until he met Addy and he will stop at nothing to convince her of that fact. The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts and the strong willed Addy pitted against the determined Jake just makes for an explosively hot and steamy relationship, that will have you smiling at the banter between them and getting all hot an bothered a the sex scenes. I couldn't wait to return to Elpitha Island and hope it is not the last we see of it, as will all Melissa's books you can read this is a stand alone very easily but it will suck you in and you will read them all... trust me!

The attraction between Jake and Addie cannot be denied, no matter how much she tries to ignore it. He's been propositioning her for months, but she refuses, thinking it could damage the relationship between her and Jake's family. She finally gives in thinking it will be just like all her other one night stands, but Jake wants more than one night, and so does she. It was interesting to see Jake change his playboy ways so easily while Addie struggles with losing her independence if she is in a relationship. I loved the way she slowly realizes that loving someone, being with them and sometimes needing their help does not take away from who she is or what she wants. My only negative is that she was a bit too stubborn for me and it was frustrating the way she kept pushing Jake away. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

Jake Ryder is a known player, that is until his latest mission is to get his new sister-in-law's best friend into bed!! Addy and Jake have this amazing chemistry and back and fourth banter that will have you laughing and enjoying this spicy hot read. These two have been flirting with each other for months now and the lead up to when they come together will have you on the edge of your seat as it is seriously explosive. Both have their own issues to over come and the path they take isn't always an easy one but is definitely needed so they can both learn from it. This was an excellent read and 100% worth a go for any Melissa Foster fans, it's not all about the sex, Jake and Addy have a deep connection and they seem to get each other more than anyone else!! At times it was emotional and there were plenty of jaw dropping moments, but best of all the characters were captivating and very relatable. An excellent addition to the Ryder stories, can't wait for more!!!

I love Melissa Foster's books and her Love in Bloom series. Each book is a read alone book or read in series. You can start anywhere in the series and still know what is going on. Her books are written so well that you feel like you're in the book. You can see and feel what's going on. This time I read Rescued by Love and was captured immediately. I couldn't put it down. Jake and Addy was a fun couple to read about. Melissa Foster is a amazing writer and I have fallen in love with her series. Every story is it's own story but the next one in the series has to do with other characters in the last story. I love that! Jake is a sweet and cocky man who is used to getting what he wants without much of a fight until Addy. He is determined to have her and can't get her off his mind. He is a hot search and rescue guy who loves adventure and control. He is so hot! He would be my ideal dream man I would design if I could design my man. He is hot, arrogant, outdoorsy, fun, dirty minded, loving, strong, caring, a wee bit dangerous, and great at fulfilling all my wants and desires. Addy is a feisty woman who does everything on her own and doesn't let anyone tell her want she can or can't do. She has no time for relationships and love. Jake irritates her but he is so hot and intriguing to her but she can't let go of control. She finally throws caution into the wind and agrees to a one night stand that happens to be her forever after. Addy reminds me a lot of myself. She wasn't store b e known as strong, can do it herself, doesn't need anyone to do anything for her, and very determined but sometimes forgets it's okay to have help and want someone to share everything with. Such a fun and hot book. I couldn't put it down. It has a amazing happy ever after ending which makes me happy. Definitely recommend this book!

The Rescued By Love is a great addition for the Ryder series. The settings are described vividly and the characters are amusing and well thought out. Jake and Addison have great chemistry. I absolutely love Jake in this story. He's the perfect book boyfriend. Seriously, can I get one of him? He's loyal to his family and friends, playful and flirty, and protective. Jake goes for what he wants and doesn't give up. The story behind the superman tattoo had me tearing up. He has a ton of patients too to deal with Addison's stubbornness. Addison is a very independent and stubborn woman. She goes after what she think she wants and doesn't let anyone get in the way. There are times she frustrates me with how she pushes Jake away, but sometimes us stubborn women have to live and learn the hard way. I love the secondary and minor characters as well. This book made me want to go back and reread Cash and Siena's story. It also has made me really hopeful that Boone's brothers get stories of their own because they both seem very amusing and interesting. I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Oh me, oh my. Unlike any other Melissa Foster book I have read; I loved this one too! It was definitely an interesting change to have the female not want the relationship and the man to want more in the start, but dang! This book was hot. I loved the bantering and the flirting. The chemistry was hot. The relations were… wow. Addison and Jake clearly were made for each other. They are both quite similar with their big heads (and egos) but together – they really were something else. I loves that every book Melissa does, allows us to catch up with past characters while we fall in love with the main characters (characters we briefly hear about in past books.) While they all can technically be read as stand alone books; you won’t want to read just one. They are far too hot to stop at one!

Addy Dahl was so happy for her best friend/employer, Gabriella, who was marrying Duke Ryder. It was a beautiful wedding on Elpitha Island. The only problem was, that on the island, there was no escaping Duke’s brother, Jake. Ever since Addy and Jake had met several months ago, there had been plenty of flirtation. Jake had the reputation of love them, leave them, never look back. But so did Addy. This time though, Jake is relentless. With Addy leaving for a solo camping trip in two days, she decides to go ahead and hook up, and get Jake out of her system once and for all. But, wouldn’t you know it, it has the opposite effect. Now, will Addy be able to leave as intended, or will she give in, and have her future turn into the one she has always feared? Jake and Addy were two of a kind. It’s no wonder they were drawn to each other. I loved their competitiveness from the start. I think weddings are so much fun, and with not one, but two going on, there was plenty of entertainment to be had. I have enjoyed each of the Ryder stories, and this one was equally enchanting. I can’t wait for the next one.

WOW!!! Jake & Addy! We knew they'd be hot!! Two fierce and independent individuals are bound to do that. But WOW, can we also say STUBBORN! :-) Addy has a stubborn streak that she KNOWS causes issues in some aspects of her life. But how can you blame her. After living 18 years with her father taking care of EVERYTHING for her and her mother, she didn't want to have to depend on a man to get her through life. She wanted to do it on her own. She didn't think even falling in love was in the cards, because she feared that menat giving up herself and everything she wanted. Enter Jake Ryder and all her independence is in jeopardy, or so she thinks! Jake has had a thing for Addy the minute he met her with her smart mouth and fierce independence! The one thing he absolutely he cant get enough of is the one thing that could pull them apart. He tries, with everything he has, to be patient and show Addy she can be with him and still be herself. She doesn't have to give anything up. But Addy's past and her family have proven two times over how much the thinks she will give up surrendering to the desire that has built between her and Jake. Her solo trip into the mountains causes anxiety and Jake to realize that he loves her! He is bound and determined to show her that she can be the woman he fell in love with and not change one thing about herself, except letting him in!

Whew . . . What a ride is this new novel, Rescued by Love, from Melissa Foster! It is probably one of the hottest books to date in the Love in Bloom series. It is the tale of Jake Ryder and Addy Dahl . . . two headstrong people who have tip-toed around their attraction to each other since they met several months earlier. Addy is the assistant to Gabriella, Duke Ryder’s love. Jake has hopes of really connecting when they all travel to Elpitha Island for Duke’s and Gabriella’s wedding. As they flirt and squirm around each other on the island, their attraction finally brings them together and leads them to agree to a one-night hookup. What happens after that when they find one night is just not enough is anyone’s guess. But Addy is determined to follow through with her plans to take a solo 10-night camping trip in the wilderness to prove to herself that she is perfectly capable of meeting challenges head on. Addy’s insistence hits a nerve with Jake’s because of his experience and life as a search and rescue professional. What happens on the island beach before the trip? How do Jake’s family members feel about Addy? What happens during Addy’s camping trip? You’ll have to reach into Rescued by Love to find the answers.

Addy and Jake are a mass of contradictions. On the surface you have people who are self assured and thrive on independence, yet the deeper you dig the bigger the mess. From trust issues to control issues, insecurities and a chasm of painful truths, falling in love is an uphill battle for these loners. Addy was a work in progress. Sort of a switch of roles. Addy was the objectifier and Jake the aggressor. She saw sex as a means to an end. Jake from the start seemed to be all in. Rescued by Love sets about breaking down barriers, which Ms. Foster is well versed in doing but the prize at the end of the journey is a narrative that is hard to forget.
