Submerging myself into the world that is created by the fabulous writing duo Melanie Shawn, is the best kind of escape reading to me. I could even call it therapy, in the form you get when you hang out with you dear friends. I have experienced this with each new series they have written, and Valentine Bay is no exception to that. Genevieve Rollins and Gavin Valentine's love story has a unique handle to it, with their casual, secret sexy benefits they have been serving each other with for over a decade. They know each other, in bed and out of it, but as Gavin's life is changing forever, they have to figure out the new frame to their relations with each other, as soon as Gavin is ready to confess what is happening and why his life is changing. Because Genevieve and Gavin have the intimate knowledge of each other, the love scenes between them take the heat level to a completely new dial of smoking hot. It is through those most vulnerable and delicate private moments, where the development of the characters and the relationship is so cleverly underlined and advanced. Oh, it is not all just sizzling hot encounters that heat up the pages of this tale. There is also the banter and repartee of the brothers and friends, the Grandma Valentine that knows all and sees all, and the curious townfolks who are not afraid to meddle into people's affairs, no matter how hard they work to keep things secret. The health issues Gavin is facing, his struggle to accept it, and most of all, his scramble to tell his loved ones of the matter, not only bring depth and a dash of seriousness to the story, so skillfully and delicately delivers some of the best situational comics that made me give a laugh. From scorching hot love scenes to the family dynamics and small-town quirks, Rescuing His Heart delivers smiles, laughter, and swooning sighs in one vastly entertaining tale that was easy to get lost in, and forget that the rest of the world even exist as it smoothly flew off the pages. A delightfully ravishing, ever so sexy tale of love and new chapters in life. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Hot Hot Hot Genevieve and Gavin have known each other for years. They have been hooking up since high school except no one, not even their closest friends and family, know. When Gavin is diagnosed with a medical condition ending his air force career he comes home to figure out what to do with his life now that everything has changed. Genevieve has a busy job, great friends and is overall very content in her life, epically with her secret sexy time with Gavin when he blows into town. When she discovers that he will be around permanently Genevieve is faced with trying to figure out if her feelings for Gavin go deeper than the bead room or not. This book is the second installment in Valentine Bay series; a super cute small town that has great characters and a cute town that you wish was a real place you could visit. Genevieve and Gavin have a lot of sexy time in this book so if that is your thing than buckle up. If you love the romance just as much then you too will have your heart satisfied. This is a super quick read because you will not want to put the book down! One click this baby right now you won’t be sorry.

WOW!!! Oh WOW!! I don’t know how the amazing duo of Melanie Shawn is able to keep writing better, improved, and a sexier story than their last book, but they did it with the second book in their Valentine Bay series, Rescuing His Heart, which I just loved. Genevieve and Gavin have been hooking up since high school. It’s always been a casual, no-strings attached fling since they were only together when Gavin was home on leave. Now that Gavin was home for good, Genevieve did not know what to do. She enjoyed being with him but she didn’t think she had any deep feelings for him. Gavin wasn’t sure what to make of his future. He was diagnosed with a medical condition that meant he could no longer fly; they the reason he was home and out of the service. Being a loner, Gavin struggled to open himself up to his family and Genevieve, explaining why he was home. Genevieve finds that deep down she truly has feelings for Gavin, wants to be there for him, and help him find a future he can live with. These two were amazing and perfect for each other. They had off the charts chemistry and everyone could see the electric sparks they shared. How Genevieve and Gavin could think no one in their small town knew about their fling was crazy. I enjoyed following Genevieve’s journey to discovering her true feelings along with her stalking Gavin, trying to find out what was wrong. Grandmother Valentine made an appearance, with her Adonis-like caretaker, and added layers of humor and love to this story. Melanie Shawn wrote a wonderfully emotional and moving story filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I highly recommend this book to other readers and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Valentine Bay series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Melanie Shawn delivers EVERY TIME!!! Every time I open one of their books I know I’m going to get a great story that grabs my heart and won’t let go. Rescuing His Heart did that and so much more! Gen and Gavin were the perfect friends to lovers story, although theirs was a tad different. You’ll see!!! Their road to their happily ever after was full of love, sexiness, friendship, laughter, swooning and a little drama....just the way I love it! You’ll definitely want to read this one! Happy reading!

**I received an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Melanie Shawn has taken us on another great trip to Valentine Bay! Genevieve Rollins is an event planner, who not only enjoys her job, but is insanely good at it. For the past 15 years, she's lived in her hometown of Valentine Bay and when her friend, Gavin Valentine, would come home on leave from his job as a fighter pilot they engaged in a friends with benefits relationship. One that they kept well under wraps at Gen's request. Gavin has recently returned to Valentine Bay with the intention to stay this time, but not because it is his first choice. He's recently been given a diagnosis that will ground him from here on out and he's still processing this newest development. Being a very private person who keeps his emotions close to the vest, Gavin is struggling with letting anyone in on his diagnosis, including his family and Gen. When Gen and Gavin reconnect once he's back home, it's clear to both of them that they have stronger feelings than either of them anticipated, or have allowed themselves to recognize in the past, but will Gavin's secret end up causing them to walk away from the arrangement they've had for so long, or will he realize he needs to lean on those who love him most? I enjoyed this story, but I will say that it wore on me a bit how close to the vest both Gavin and Gen played things. His need to keep his diagnosis to himself and her need to keep their relationship a secret felt like it was never going to end, but once it finally did, I felt like their family and friends - elated they finally came clean with everyone. Another great addition to the Valentine Bay series. Looking forward to the next one!

A friends with benefits is all Gen and Gavin wanted, until Gavin has returned home after being discharged from the military. They have kept their relationship a secret for many years, now they need to decide if there is more to their relationship than the casual hook ups. I really enjoyed this sexy read, great chemistry between Gavin and Gen. Loved the relationship that Gavin has with his brothers, they are all very close. They were not afraid of calling Gavin out on his secret of why he was discharged from the military. Looking forward to the next Valentine brother story.

I really liked this book!!! :) Gavin and Genevieve bring a whole new dynamic that is fun to watch unfold. I love having the rest of the family and friends involved and getting to know all these characters with their fun, quirky personalities!! With all new series, sometimes it takes a while to get to know these characters and become invested, but it is really easy to do that with this! With all of Melanie Shawn's other series being as amazing as they are, this one has a lot to live up to but I am super excited to keep reading, meeting all these characters and see where this goes!!

This was a great read! Gavin and Gen were perfect for each other. They both knew what they wanted, and when those wants changed, it seemed to be the perfect transition. I loved the type of relationship Gavin has with his brothers, and how they don’t mind calling him out when he needs to open up or be set straight about something. This was a low drama, sexy must read that I would definitely recommend!

Rescuing His Heart was a great book. It was emotional at times yet still funny and sexy. Gavin’s discharge leaves him coming home to deal with his medical diagnoses. Feeling like everything he’s ever wanted gone, he seeks comfort in the one person that has always had his heart. Problem is, their “thing” is to sleep together while he’s in town then not think about each other the rest of the time. Can Gavin make Genevieve (Gen) see that there are feelings between them that neither has ever wanted to admit to? Can he show Gen that they are the perfect couple? And more importantly, can he live happily knowing he can never fly again? Gen has been sleeping with Gavin for many years now without her friends or anyone else knowing about it. It was a hook up while he was in town kind of thing, so she never wanted to let anyone else know about them. What happens when Gavin is home to stay and Gen must confront her feelings for Gavin? Will Gen finally be ready to tell the world that her and Gavin are a couple, or will she want to forever keep their relationship a secret? Fall in love with Gavin and Genevieve. I did!

Honest review for ARC. Gavin Valentine has returned to Valentine Bay for good. His “flyboy” days are over. His family and friends know something is wrong, but Gavin isn’t ready to share yet. Genevieve Rollins is THE event planner in Valentine Bay and also Gavin’s long term “hookup”. Although Gen feels more for Gavin than she will admit, the feels are overcoming her. The fact that Gavin is home for good and keeping a dark secret just makes the yearning that much stronger. Gavin and Gen heat up the pages of this book. As always, it’s great to catch up with “old friends” and delve into new ones.

Rescuing His Heart is a great book that deals with a struggle that so many individuals grapple with daily. A medical issue, no matter how big or how small, is hardest to discuss with family members. Gavin eventually realizes what most people do, the more you hide it, the more the imagination of those around you runs rampant and the panic starts building. It is only after Gavin comes clean, to Gen and the rest of his family, that their relationship finally finds the foundation of trust and the two of them are able to have their happily ever after.

We return to Valentine Bay, for the second instalment. Genevieve is a strong independent woman and she loves her job as an event planner. She's know Gavin her whole life and loves her time with him when he comes back to Valentine Bay while on leave, it works for then. But she's not sure how things will work, when she finds out he is back for good. Gavin is a strong, hot fighter pilot, but he returns home when his health prevents him from doing what he loves. Now he has to find a way to carry on, without doing the one thing he loves. He also has to tell the people he loves, why he's home, including Genevieve. Another great series from the amazing sister duo, Melanie Shawn.

Heartwarming, engaging, emotional and sexy friends with benefits to so much ....... romance filled with hard choices, secrets, self-reflection and thrilling passion.... Genevieve Rollins and Gavin Valentine have been a no strings attached casual hookup since high school and thought they kept it all a big secret (in Valentine Bay.... Haha) .... Now that Gavin is back for good (due to a medical issue he is trying to hide) their relationship becomes rocky. Really enjoyed their entertaining banter and chemistry.

Though for me, book one in the series was better, this one is still an entertaining story about two strong individuals in the form of Genevieve Rollins and Gavin Valentine. She is the “need to be in control” gal , he the fighter pilot. Their casual encounters started in HS and have continue for over 10 years whenever Gavin is in town. But life changes in Gavin have him back in Valentine permanently. Will this change , change their relationship? Will his reason for returning make him rethink his life? And will they have a chance to realize that the best thing that has happened to them has been in front of them for most of their lives? Looking forward to what the authors have in store for us in the next Valentine Bay story. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
