This book was very quick to read. The storyline was very simple, and I didn't feel that it or the character development went very deep. That didn't bother me, but it was difficult to find the hero likeable. He was just bad natured in general, prone to losing his temper and yelling, and that isn't my favorite type of hero. I enjoyed reading the book, but after finishing it didn't feel that it was really anything special.

A good quick read. Steamy. Romantic. Sexy cowboys. No surprises.
3.5⭐ it was a cute story. Made me smile. But I wouldn’t say there was anything special about this book. ...more
Jaci Burton does not disappoint in this book. Standalone. Sabrina Daniels is a divorcee who was treated like trophy wife. She on a journey to find herself by investing a ranch owned by the Morgan Clan. Story line flowed and hope to read more by her.

OK so where do I start? I almost DNF but believe it or not I kept on because I hoped that it would get better but it didn't. The hero (Kyle the sexy rancher), OMG is horrible and I'm still shaking my head.
Now bear with me as I figure this out......okay?

They say never judge a book by its cover. But I definitely do. Jaci had the cover to this book redone (not the cover shown on Goodreads), which is why I decided to read it. Glad I did!

Kyle seriously the most stubborn and most prideful man I've ever witnessed. Sheesh. He pissed me off more than once with his attitude and behavior towards Sabrina. I kept waiting for the turn in the book where he actually allowed hisself to feel and act in regards to his heart, NOPE! He always allowed his head, pr

It's apparent that Sabrina affects Kyle, "his co** went rock hard in an instant, his balls aching for release. Sh**. This he didn't need right now." Kyle is an a** everyone knows that but he's more a**y toward Sabrina than anyone else, "if you'll excuse me, I'm a bit tired from the long drive today," Sabrina said quietly. As she rose from the table, Kyle saw tears glistening in her eyes. He felt a momentary twinge of guilt but quickly pushed it aside." Kyle doesn't appreciate others naming his a ...more

Love can rescue a lonely heart. Kyle Morgan doesn't want to be rescued, especially not by former beauty queen Sabrina Daniels. Sabrina fires up Kyle's long dormant libido, and it's like a match struck on dry tinder-an explosion of heat whenever she's around. His cheating ex-wife left a bad taste in his mouth about the entire female gender and he doesn't want to get involved again, despite Sabrina's untapped sensuality. Sabrina Daniels, newly divorced from her controlling millionaire husband, is ...more

Unpredictable and a great read/listen. What a fantastic book. I wish this was a series but nonetheless it had a great plot and an even better story line. First time listening/reading of this author's books and clearly I picked a good one. They're definitely on my to-read list now!

A nice romantic story!! Sabrina and Kyle are both stubborn and both lonely in different ways. It was good to see them realize the other's worth.

Thank goodness this wasn't the 1st book I read of this author... if so, I won't be on book 4 of the "Play by Play" series. This book only gets a 2 star because of the how they dealt with the ex issue...and the heroine character. I enjoyed her for the most part.

I’m not sure where the bad reviews came from but everyone is welcome to their opinion.
I loved it, thought is was a romantic and funny at times story. Just sorry not to see a story on Brady and Emma.

Kyle Morgan is a rancher who is losing his ranch. Sabrina is a rich, pampered rancher wannabe who recently left a verbally abusive husband. There were parts that I really liked but there many times when I shook my head at the verbal sparring, deceit, and stupid choices.

Same characters as Hope series. Sweet. Cowboy story. Not too many scenes.

I don't typically write reviews but this book had to be one of the most disappointing books I have read recently. Kyle is a jerk and Sabrina is an idiot for putting up with him. There was no romance to this book. For me it was a total disappointment I just wanted to yell at both the main characters the entire book.

Sabrina Daniels has spent her entire life being a prize doll. First, her mother entered her in every beauty pageant she could, just to get the prize money. Then at 18 she married Mark, who spent 8 years abusing her emotionally, telling her how to behave, how to dress, how to everything. Until Sabrina had enough and divorced him. Now she has lots of money and wants to make her dream of owning a ranch come true, only she doesn't know how to, so she invests on a ranch in exchange for ranch knowledg ...more

It says something about Jaci Burton's writing that despite two tropes that I have grown tired of (SPOILER: the rancher at risk of losing everything and oops, I'm pregnant) this book definitely held my attention. I mean I picked it up knowing the rancher at risk part already because I figured Burton's writing would overcome it. Even though it is the rancher at risk trope Burton did a good job of giving it a new twist on the solution. Sabrina and Kyle are both strong people who have had less than ...more

So I picked this up after having read, and enjoyed, a few of the books in Ms. Burton's "Play by Play" series. This one didn't resonate with me as well as those had. Even though those are all based on sports dudes, and I'm totally not into sports, I very much enjoyed the stories and characters. So, I figured much would be the same with Rescue Me, about a rancher dude. Not so much. I think I just didn't grow to care much about the characters, thus, I kind of didn't care what happened to them. And, ...more

3.5 stars. I love everything that I've read by Jaci Burton and will continue to read whatever she writes. This one was written a few years ago and I can definitely see how her style has emerged and grown. Liked the story. Kyle is a brooding rancher. Sabrina comes to the ranch having invested some money to help the ranch get out of their financial woes and sparks, predictably, fly. Sabrina is a very likable girl as well as the rest of Kyle's family, his brother, sister and brother in law. Kyle is ...more

damn it was hot, erotic, emotional, pleasurable and hell frustrating!!!! I liked Sabrina, i loved her story, her thing with Mark and how she changed.. I loved Kyle. perfectly moody, lovable, deep, hot, sexy, rough,HOT!!!!! *sigh*

Loved all the characters, even Pam the lawyer who's in the book for like 2 pages... they're all witty and funny and sweet but wayy different. Kyle's voice was the one i liked most... you could see that he was ACTUALLY troubled and not 'i know i love her

Loved this story! Sabrina was a great heroine even though, she could have found a little more back-bone. Even the secondary characters were charming and very real, but our hero Kyle, was a bit of a JERK. He had a little too much male pride and could say some really unbelievable things to Sabrina when he was angry. This is the person saving your butt and who you had no problem sleeping with, couldn't understand why he was so vile! I wish the author had given Sabrina a moment to get her Ex-husband ...more
