Review: Rescue Me


Synopsis:

Lane Austin would do almost anything for his local firehouse, even model for a sexy calendar. But now he’s allowed himself to be talked into auctioning himself off. What was he thinking?

Abby has just walked away from a terrible relationship that should have ended years ago. What better way to celebrate than having her cousin take her to watch a bunch of firemen be auctioned off to horny housewives? But when Jenna secretly buys Mr. September for her, her entire world and all of her preconceptions about hunky men will change forever.

Rating: 3 stars

Review:

Rescue Me by Jill Sanders is a difficult book to review, because I wanted to like it so much. I just couldn’t get myself to. There was a huge disconnect. It is written in third person and it doesn’t connect well with the main characters. The male lead – Lane – is connected really well, but when it switches to Abby, I feel like it’s really forced. Also…what is the point of the whole car buying scene? I honestly found no point to it and could have easily been taken out of the book without affecting the plot at all. 

However, I want to like the book because the story line had a LOT of potential, and it’s really rare for me to read an eBook that doesn’t have a lot of errors in it. I didn’t see any while reading, so I REALLY wanted to enjoy this book. I give it a 3 out of 5 for the formatting and grammar. I want the score to be higher, but I can’t ignore how disconnected things feel and some of the really random scenes (such as the car buying one) that seem to have no meaning whatsoever. Still, if you’re a romance fan, you’ll still really enjoy Rescue Me by Jill Sanders.
