The Paramedic's Rescue by Patty Blount

When a surly paramedic finds Kara Larsen's lost toddler, only to berate her for failing to mind her child, Kara is embarrassed and relieved she'll never have to deal with that jerk again. Doesn't he know being a single mom is a lot harder than it looks?! But when baby Nadia has trouble breathing one night, Kara's frantic 911 call brings that same jerk right to her door...

NYFD paramedic Reid Bennett has a compulsion to help frantic parents. But after the way he over-reacted to the beautiful woman in the department store that day, she wants nothing to do with him. But it's not his fault he keeps running into her all over the city...

When Kara bumps into Reid for the third time in a week, she can't help but wonder if the mom she lost in 2001 is playing matchmaker. As Kara and Reid form a cautious friendship, he quickly becomes baby Nadia's favorite person. But Reid has no interest in long-term commitment, or so he thought. So when Nadia's father calls out of the blue and Kara agrees to see him, Reid realizes he has some triage to do if he hopes to keep his girls...

Great Story, Wonderful Characters1 A wonderful beginning to the Summer in New York series that has ties to the earlier Christmas in New York series by Tule Publishing, but is also a strong stand alone. This was a truly enjoyable read with real and likeable characters. Kara Larsen has had her share of tough times. She lost her mother in the attacks of 9/11. Then her boyfriend high-tailed it out the door when she told him she was pregnant, so she has worked hard to raise her daughter and maintain her career to support them. She feels she will never measure up as a mother, and feels even more inadequate when her daughter's Houdini stunt brings her face-to-face with Paramedic Reid Bennett and his lecture about being an attentive mother. Reid also lost someone in the attacks of 9/11, but that isn't his only tragedy. No matter how hard he resists, he can't help getting involved with the precocious toddler and her beautiful mother. Can they learn to trust another enough to lean on each other and grow their love? The characters are extremely well-developed and enjoyable to read. The story kept me involved, and I adored Nadia's antics. Kara and Reid are complex characters that have faced tragedy and also have their every day problems. I enjoyed the story and happily read it through without putting it down. With such a fun beginning to the series, I can't wait to see who we visit next in the series. *I received an Advanced Copy from the Publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

Single mother Kara Larsen didn’t have time for dating. She worked hard to raise her daughter on her own after the father ran when Kara told him that she was pregnant. She did everything she felt was necessary to raise Nadia the best way possible, right down to going to child CPR classes. That’s where she met Reid Bennett, the paramedic who was giving the class. Little did she know she would be seeing much more of him. Kara’s deceased mother has been known to send signs. She sent signs for Kara’s sister to meet the perfect man. Where was Kara’s sign? Surely her mom wasn’t ignoring her. Little did she know she was about to get the biggest sign of all in the form of Reid Bennett. Reid lost his daughter and then his wife divorced him shortly afterwards. He has a hard time moving on from the tragic death of his child. When he first sees Nadia, his mind flashed to his daughter Erin. This sets him in a bad mood. First off children are not allowed in his CPR classes. Second when he sees Nadia again running loose in a store, he goes off in a rage on Kara for not keeping an eye on her daughter at all times. When he keeps running into Kara and Nadia in different places, he starts wondering why it’s happening. Could there be a reason they keep crossing the same paths? This is a wonderful story. I loved everything about it.

This is a great story with well developed characters, building on previous events but still robust enough to be read as a stand alone. I’ve enjoyed all the books I’ve read in this series and in the earlier series 'Christmas in New York' which included many of the same characters, each with an additional different focus. In this book that focus explores how childhood medical issues can impact on the child throughout their life and on how they interact with others. Bree, Elena, Kara, Jade and Cassandra are best friends and relate to each other as though they are sisters. Their mothers had been sorority sisters in college and had remained best friends afterwards. Their children had grown up sharing holidays and key family events together. They do have real siblings too and this book is one in a series by different authors about the girls and their relationships. Single Mum, Kara, has an eighteen month old daughter, Nadia. She’d been in a long term relationship with Nadia’s father even moving to New York with him but he’d run off as soon as they confirmed she was pregnant. Kara is an independent lady, with a great ob and support network of family and friends but she really misses her Mum, who was tragically killed in the 7/11 Twin Towers attack. She particularly misses her when she’d like help or advice about Nadia. Read is a NYFD paramedic who lost his brother in the same disaster. He later also lost his daughter in a tragic accident, her loss impacting negatively on his relationship with his now ex-wife leaving him divorced and alone. The three first meet when Nadia runs off whilst her Mum is shopping in a store. He shouts at Kara, suggesting that she’s an inadequate mother and should pay more attention to her daughter and less to her mobile. He does regret this, especially as they keep meeting unexpectedly and attraction flares but both are extremely wary. Can they put the tragic events of the past behind them and build a future together? Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this sweet story and being able to see the girls and their other halves again. Kara and Nadia are quite a pair who seem to be settling into a rhythm when one day Reid comes into their lives and changes it, for all their sakes. Reid is trying to forget his painful past, memories, and lose himself in work but cannot once he meets Kara and Nadia. A beautiful story of second chances.

I felt this story, His Touch wrapped up the Christmas in New York series by sharing Kara's story. Kara is struggling on her own as a single mother and trying to juggle it all, and questioning every decision she makes, carrying the guilt of not being able to do it all... and the slightest mishap making you feel like a major disappointment. Reid who's heart is rock hard after going through the worst imaginable nightmare a parent could possible have to go through and locking those memories up. Kara who is in his CPR class makes all of those explode when her daughter is brought into the middle of class because her Nanny has an emergency and Nadia is a splitting image of his daughter Erin. As fate moves forward Kara and Reid are constantly running into each other, as they know each other now. The spirits of the ones they lost during 911 help them to overcome their hiccups and come together. This was my first Patty Blount story and am looking forward to future stories. I received an ARC for an honest and fair review.

Summer in New York series seems to continue where the winter in New York ended, where we were introduced Kara, and her friends. His Touch can be read as a stand alone novel, the previous history is well shared and explained in this story. Kara is struggling with her single mom life. She is doing the balancing act with a baby and job and life. She feels insecure as a mother, she misses her own mother who dies at 9/11 attacks, she is tired, overwhelmed, and weary. And then she starts to run into Reid constantly. Reid is still in recovery from the loss of his daughter. He is not ready for a relationship, and even seeing a baby gives him a panic. But there's a connection between Reid and Kara, an attraction they can't deny. Nor can't they deny the signs they keep seeing, that makes them to believe they are meant to be together. I loved how they were always there for each other, reading each others needs. The way Reid run into them every time Kara needed it, like serendipity. All the signs they are seeing and experiencing are endearing, who hasn't looked for a sign at an important moment in their lives. The raw pain and mourning both Reid and Kara feel for the lost family members is palpable. The mourning, they are going through, so painful, yearning for their loved ones constantly. The story goes deep, it touches emotions, the insecurity and faulty all parents must feel at times, is real and evident. The romance and feelings built slowly between Reid and Kara, they are so perfect together, for each other. The connection this little family makes within each other is genuine and true, the connection to 9/11 is gripping, the support and love from their friends and family admirable. A poignant story, also filled with hope, joy, faith in the future, and love ~ Five Spoons!
