Publisher's Summary

Ryder Daniels is all too familiar with rejection. His parents cut off contact because he's gay and his boyfriend left him, choosing drugs over love. Aside from his rescued pit bull, his only joy is hanging out with his younger brother. Then his mother does the unthinkable and forbids them from seeing each other, leaving Ryder devastated and alone. His friends urge him to date, but Ryder would rather throw himself into working at the dog rescue and figuring out a way to see his brother again.
When Jason Mallory's girlfriend gives him an ultimatum to get married, he shocks everyone by breaking up with her instead. He believes he's too busy for a relationship now that the construction company he started with his brother is taking off. When he discovers a group of abandoned pit bulls and calls the local dog rescue group to pick them up, an uncomfortable encounter with Ryder causes Jason to question feelings he's hidden deep inside for years.
Jason and Ryder build a friendship - until an unexpected kiss sparks the attraction they've been fighting. Jason gives Ryder unconditional love and helps him reconnect with his brother, while Ryder shows Jason the passion he's always missed in relationships. Together, they must battle through their family differences and ugly prejudices. Only then can they prove that once you find the right person to love, there's no turning back.

Sweet, sexy & a wonderful HEA!

Any additional comments?

This was a low-angst, fluffy, sweet confection. With really, really hot sex scenes. In fact, I was surprised by how, ahem, hot they were. What can I say? This story just made me happy.

Ryder and Jason are two relatable characters, and Stevens does well engaging the reader with POV from both. I loved the juxtaposition of Jason’s supportive family with Ryder’s truly cold-ass-bitch mother. I’m telling you now Ryder’s mother is definitely a character that you’ll love to hate.

The narration for the story is enjoyable, with Charlie David making sure to highlight the more emotional moments well. He has good timing and his tone is good overall, I just wish he’d chosen to do more character voices…all the male voices are really, really similar.

If you’re in the mood for a truly sweet, romantic read with a great cast of characters, steamy sex, and a wonderful HEA, you should check this out.

He rescues him right back! Pretty Women quote :)

Would you listen to Rescued again? Why?

Heck yes, it was fantastic! The story had so much meat to it, well paced and Charlie David really brought the characters to life.


What did you like best about this story?

The way Ryder and Jason connect, become friends first and then move over to the romance.


Have you listened to any of Charlie David’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I buy audiobooks simply because Charlie David narrates them. He's amazing and this book was no different, absolutely loved it.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both. I laughed so hard at times, but my heart broke for Riley, the way his mother was, what she did to him that you don't even realize the full extent of until the last few chapters of the book.


Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed every little thing about this book. Well written, perfect marriage of action, suspense and romance. And the narration was fanfriggintastic! Definitely, highly recommend you listen to this one and I hope Charlie is getting Reunited ready for my ears as I type!
