Publisher's Summary

Kai

I’ve been dreaming of him for about a year, but I don’t know why. I have no clue who he is. But when a crazed shifter captures me and starts torturing me for information about the blond-haired stranger, I start to realize that he might be the only one that can save me...and I have no clue how to reach him from the prison I’m trapped in.

Patty

I can’t get that green-eyed stranger out of my head. I’m drawn to him.... I know what he is to me...but he works for the enemy, for the Ministry, so he’s off-limits. Or at least he was until my worst nightmare started using him as bait. But what can I do? I can’t let him die just because he’s connected to me. I can’t let him die just because that bastard Edward has gotten his claws into him...but what can I do to protect him?

Will Patty be able to save Kai from Edward’s clutches? Will they be able to move past their differences and come together to save not only themselves, but their loved ones as well?

Rescuing His Heart is the second book in the Reclaiming Hope series. Each book in the series will feature a different couple, but it is recommended that you listen to the books in order because you will get more enjoyment out of the story. It’s a paranormal shifter romance between two men and is intended for adults only.

Good but...

This was a good story but had a few annoying parts. I am looking forward to the next book to come out in audio to see where this is all going.

The narration was fine, not my fav but not bad.

Last half worth the listen

I am including the novella that follows book 2, because it’s really sweet and you should absolutely read it if you’re a fan of the series. It gives some more back story and helps move the series along, though it’s not required I do think it helps.
I gotta be honest with you. I skimmed the entire first 50% of book 2 – it was just too dark/depressing/much for me right now. I had not been keeping track of this series and when the audio for book 1 came out it reminded me about how much I enjoyed it and I found 2 more full stories and 2 novellas I had missed! It was like Christmas in May! LOL
But… I’ve never been a fan of dystopian romances and this is that in spades. I simply could not read about all the dark times, the being separate, the evil bad guys doing evil bad things and so on. It was too much. But… I love these characters and I really wanted to make it to book 3 which was really calling to me – so I skimmed. It wasn’t that bad and when I got to (about) the 50% mark our MCs are finally back with one another and working together to solve their problems. Phew. That – at least – wasn’t too bad and I enjoyed reading it from there forward.
You have to be tenacious. These guys keep getting hit – over and over – by really bad things and it affects everything.
However, the author has done a really nice job of giving us a lot of happy to balance that. I will say that I super love the rumbling chests, the super over zealous “mine” possessiveness and the scenting, hugging, and other Wolfy type behavior. I could do with a bit less smexy times – they seem to happen a lot once our guys get together – but – like I said – it’s to balance the ugly so…
The little novella is a nice touch and helps to round out Felix a bit and I can’t wait for his story!
Highly enjoyable and recommended – with the caveat of “be warned – it’s dark and angsty as F.”

Audio
Kenneth Obi does a nice job with this. There are a lot of characters and he helps to keep them separated. This is a good way to enjoy this story.

Loved it

The beginning had too much back and forth with Kai being captured and released then Patty being captured and released. Other than that it was a very loving and patient true mates story. I can’t wait for the next one.

enjoyed it

Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Were there any parts I found annoying: (minor) inconsistency in character's voice's from book 1 (but if you don't listen to books 1 & 2 back to back it won't matter).
Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: yes
Would I listen to it again: yes

I’m enjoying this series and the different take on the shifter world. Rescuing His Heart has a good pace, is action packed with lots of great characters (I'm loving the bad guys!). Patty and Kai are complex characters and I enjoyed their story.

Kenneth Obi does a fantastic job at bringing everyone to life and adds to the audio experience.

... so much going on ... the epilogue teases for book 3

Loved it so much!

Kai and Patty are perfect together. They have so much to overcome, yet with love and pack.

fantastic

Rescuing His Heart is the second book in the Reclaiming Hope series by Michele Notaro. Danger, magic, suspense, violence, drama, steam, sweetness... and shifters. I love the story. Kai and Patty are fantastic characters and so are the rest of the pack. I can not wait to read more of the series.

Narration by Kenneth Ob is fantastic. The voicework is beings out the personality and feelings of the characters and story. . The recording is smooth and clean. Great job!

I'm so disappointed

the story is great but I'm so disappointed in the narration. I fell in love with the first one and I absolutely adored Patty's voice. I waited for thos book for so long!

but even though some of the voices are consistent from the last book to this one, Patrick's is not and that's pretty disappointing and honestly distracting. this voice is not as good as the last one for him and the inconsistency of the voice from book to book doesn't allow me to fully sink into the story. It kinda gets better toward the middle of the book, but then the other characters voices become inconsistent a from other moments in the same book.

I'm really disappointed because I was so looking forward to this and this change makes it such a let down. it's exactly what I was afraid what happened. I just had faith that Kenneth Obi would do it justice and was crushed when he didn't.

The storyline is good but not as good as the first one. it does a good job kinda setting up for the 3rd book so I can't wait for that one now but it's still just disappointing as an overall audiobook in this series and I'm hoping this 3rd one will be better.

Another Good Listen

This was another a good listen, but I have to say, not as captivating as the first.
The storyline as a whole was good, but it just lacked ‘that something’ that the first book had.
Whether it was because of such a gap between release of the audiobook (9 months!), I can’t say for definite, but it took me a lot longer to listen to than the first audiobook, (9 days, wheareas I finished the first audiobook in 3 days).
The character of Paddy was good, because of his history with the villain Edward, but Kai, his character came across as vapid and not quite the sharpest knife in the drawer, if you catch my drift and probably why I didn’t enjoy this story so much.

I just found it really difficult to keep my attention in the story. If it wasn’t for the characters ‘Chris & Spence’ with their humour throughout the audiobook keeping my attention, I think I would have lost I the plot (literally!)

Overall I’d give it 5🌟, but it was the storyline in the end that dropped it to 4🌟

Here’s hoping that book 3 isn’t going to take another 9 months and the storyline/characters improve. I hope book 3 is about Chris and his vampire - that will definitely be more interesting!

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
