Rescue Meby Rachel Gibson
Synopses & Reviews
She's 33, unmarried, and stuffed into a Bubble Yum pink bridesmaid dress. And the whole town wants to fix her up with anyone with a dental plan . . .
Who's going to rescue Sadie Hollowell now?
Everyone in Lovett, Texas, knows Sadie has always been a "notional" kind of gal. She got a notion to leave town ASAP and never visit her daddy (bless his heart) again. Now she's back and got the notion to invite a good-looking, hard-muscled, total stranger to her cousin's wedding. Better a stranger than some of the losers she's dated.
Vince Haven got his muscles the hard way—as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan. He's staying in Lovett to visit his crazy aunt—the proprietor of the local Gas and Go. Before he can get the heck back out of the small town, his aunt makes him an offer he can't refuse. Maybe he'll stick around Lovett for a while. Maybe he'll make a "go" of the Gas and Go. Maybe he'll rescue Sadie out of that pink dress!
"Gibson (Any Man of Mine) pairs up two damaged souls desperately in need of rescue in this distant and dark contemporary. Sadie Jo Hollowell reluctantly goes home to dusty cowtown Lovett, Tex., after a 15-year absence. Intending to be in and out for a family wedding, Sadie is surprised to fall hard for Navy SEAL Vince Haven, a sexy, silent man with a broken-down truck. Vince is fleeing his Afghanistan-related PTSD demons; searching for roots, he decides to take over his aunt's convenience store/gas station in Lovett. Meeting Sadie and discovering their sexual fireworks momentarily soothes his restless soul. The emotionally closed duo fight their deeper feelings even as their bodies steam up the pages, leaving them surprisingly closed off to readers. The first five chapters of backstory and scene-setting fail to enliven the plot, which doesn't begin to entice until present-day action takes over. Agent: Claudia Cross, Sterling Lord Literistic.
