I really hate writing poor reviews, especially for an author that I will forever be a fangirl for! This series may not be for me. I enjoyed the first book, but right from the start of RESCUE I wasn't drawn in; the narration was not working for me, nor the main character's personalities. Some of the humor was predictable and slap stick, the sexy scenes were lukewarm at best, and the overall storyline just--lacked. She's definitely produced better. All that said, I am going in for book 3 because of course, Kristen Ashley is still one of my favorite authors hands down!

Though this lacks some of the spark of the first book the story is a little stronger. The writer writes in the first person and has changed the style for the heroine, Jet. I have serious issues with a grown woman constantly letting out "eek!" In her internal dialogue and referring to her nether regions as her "dooda", but if you can get past that it's a fun read. This narrator is very good and apart from the odd line, does a good job of bringing the story to life.
I really had high hopes for this book after so enjoying the first. However disappointment ensued after realising that this is an almost replica of the first book; the focus relationship is nearly identical along with the sequence of events. The sex scenes are superfluous and awkward, and I could not get to grips with the main character referring to her lady part as a 'doo dah' (a term normally reserved for the package your pet dog deposits while out on a walk).
The performance is wonderful and I really enjoy Susannah's voice (maybe not so much whilst uttering the term doo dah!) but I am left wondering I want to continue with this series. *spoiler alert* Will they all be the same formulaic 'boy meets girl, girl needs help, boy protects girl from bad guys, freakishly hot guy falls for low self esteem girl and pursues in controlling manner'.
