Publisher's Summary

As the daughter of a world-renowned fashion designer, Addison Dahl enjoyed a privileged life attending the most sought-after parties, traveling around the world, and having anything she wanted. Until she broke free and went against her father's wishes, needing to prove to herself - and to him - that she could make it on her own. Now she's ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father's footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He 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. Just the way he likes it.

When Jake's sister-in-law calls and reports her best friend missing, it's up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn't lost, and she sure as hell isn't going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she'd spent one torrid weekend after her best friend's wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind - will Addison be his first failed rescue?

Sigh... Jake Ryder

What an amazing narrator… BJ Harrison is wonderful. He has a great cadence in his voice, a perfect tone, and wonderful feelings with his words. He tells that story of Addison and Jake perfectly. He takes Melissa Foster’s words and makes them come to life. While listening to the story I feel the characters come to life, their stories become realistic, and leave me wanting for so much more.

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.

One tough chick!

Addy is one tough chick!

Jake and Addy have been flirting for months but will the romance of Elpitha Island and the wedding they are attending (her best friend and his brother) cause them to finally act on their fantasies? In Rescued by Love, Jake and Addy both battle their minds while they determine if this relationship can be taken any further. Additionally, Jake has to learn how to handle the awesomely independent and fierce Addy. Watch as Jake learns that the one thing he wants to do, take care of Addy as she prepares for her 10 day camping trip and go with her, is the one thing he cannot. Jake and Addy learn to break down each others walls and possibly figure out they are better together then separate. You will love when Addy "yells" at Jake on the mountain - it is perfect Addy and such a great way to showcase their relationship.

Love the narration by BJ Harrison, he breathes life into the words on the page and I felt like I was on the mountain with Addy. Awesome work!

This is a great addition to the Ryder brothers and an opportunity to hear updates on some of your other favorite Love in Bloom family members.

Two Independent, Fierce, & Stubborn Souls Collide

Another great narration by BJ Harrison...and, of course, more great writing from Melissa.

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!

Great Read

Rescued by Love by Melissa Foster was a great read. This is the fourth book in The Ryder’s series. Addison has returned to Elpitha Island for Gabriella’s wedding. Jake and Addison decide to give into their urges and spend the weekend together. I absolutely loved reading Addison and Jakes story. I can’t wait to read more Ryder’s stories.

I’m addicted to this series!

Rescued by Love is book 4 in the Ryders Series. All of these books can be read as standalones. I’ve read some of them out of order, and they do give some hints of previous books but not enough to spoil it for me.

Addy was raised with every advantage and had everything done for her. She now seems to want to do everything in her power to assert and prove her independence. This means never relying on a man for anything including her happiness.

“She needed to be loved and cherished and shown that how he felt had nothing to do with controlling her decisions and everything to do with keeping her safe.”

Jake Ryder is completely blindsided by his feelings for Addy. He has never had time for or been interested in anything more than a superficial relationship with a woman. Jake ends up coming on a bit too strong, causing Addy to label him a “Neanderthal”!

“We’re passionate people, and passion has two sides. The side that burns so deep you can’t escape it, and the side that claws away the skin and leaves you raw.”

I love listening to this series on audiobook. The narrator is a really good storyteller and his narration definitely adds to my enjoyment.
4.5 Stars!

Melissa Foster did an amazing job with this book. BJ Harrison did another amazing job with the narration.
What can I say about Jake and Addy......one word stubborn!! The heat and bickering between these two is awesome. They have to work extra hard to get their happily ever after. Highly recommend this story.

Hot, Really Hot!

Jake Ryder was at his brother's wedding and he saw Addison Dahl there. He had wanted Addie for a long time. Addie was a paralegal and Jake volunteered in a search and rescue team. Addie was a very stubborn independent person and not only that, she had a sexy attitude. Jake loved that. They connected the whole weekend that they were there, even though she demanded it be a one night stand. He dreamed of having her every night of the week. The one night stand demand went out the window. After Boone and Trish Ryder had their wedding, Addie went on a hiking trip alone in the Silver Mountains. Then things got real for Addie as the dangers were evident. I love the sex and humor in this one. The narrator did a super job transforming my mind right into the characters.

good book!

This was another great story by Ms. Foster. The characters Addy and Jake have to work toward their HEA as they battle trust issues, control issues, insecurities, their lust for each other as well as their pasts. The plot of this story was fast moving but not too fast making this book hard to put down. I enjoyed the return of some of the characters of the previous books as the start of this book was at Duke and Gabriella's wedding with Boone and Trish's wedding to follow. I also enjoyed how family centered it was as with all of Ms. Foster's other books. As usual, I loved that despite the epic hot sex the characters were having the moment when they realize that despite not trying, they fell in love with the other. Addy fought this the hardest but I enjoyed watching her eye opening moment. I like how the characters reflected inside themselves to get to their HEA. Overall, this was a great story with a lot of self discovery for Jake and Addy as Jake learned that he could not charge in all of the time and Addy learned to trust. The narration from Mr. Harrison was performed well. He was an enthusiastic reader making the book just come to life for me. I enjoyed his narration as I have with all of the narration that he has done with Ms. Foster's other books. I, like the other books in this series would recommend it to others!

Disappointed

I love adventure romance. This was billed as such but the girl didn’t even get to the mountains until about 90 minutes left in the story. This is more self discovery than adventure. Feels like false advertising in the description.

Jake, Wow!

Jake and Addy's story starts at Duke and Gabriella's wedding, which also gives us the opportunity to catch up with the Ryders and their families.

Jake and Addy meet again at the wedding of Jakes brother Duke, and they struggle to resit the fire between them. They have both been players in the past, but like his brothers and sister Jake falls hard and fast for Addy, however she is a strong, independent lady and does not want a relationship like her mother and grandmother, so has build some rather large walls around her heart.
After their connection at the wedding, Jake is keen to see more of Addy but she is set for a 10 day solo trip up the mountain to find herself, only she discovers she has a rather large piece missing.

As usual, Melissa has written a beautiful story, and B J Harrison narrates wonderfully, and it has you completely involved from the first page to the last. I was eagerly waiting for this book having had a glimpse of them in Dukes book, and listening to the story was just as wonderful as reading it. It also meant I could enjoy it again, while on the daily commute :) Now to listen to Gage and Sally's story.
