Rescued by Love is the fourth book in the Ryder series and the forty second book in the Love in Bloom series by Melissa Foster.

Rescued by Love picked up during the wedding reception of Duke and Gabriella, where Trish and Boone's book, Chased by Love, ended. It then went straight into Trish and Boone's short notice wedding.

Jake Ryder was insanely gorgeous, a thrill seeker, strong, sexy, fun loving, laid back, a natural heart breaker, confident and possessive.

Addison "Addy" Dahl was independent, s

It should be noted that I HATE that I have not been able to go back to the beginning of the entire Love in Bloom series and catch up! Because I really REALLY enjoy Melissa Foster's style. There really should be more hours in the day!!

Okay, so these kids thought that a one and done was gonna cut it ... bwaaahahahahhahahha :) Let the games begin :)

Addison Dahl has something to prove, but only to herself. She is all consumed with it. She thinks going off into the wilderness all on her own on a

Writing this review proved a difficult task. Why? After reading Chased by Love, which I loved, I was looking forward to reading Rescued by Love so much so, that I chose to read on the weekend when I would have little or no interruptions. I wanted to savour every moment, but unfortunately, things did not go as planned.
I had a difficult time getting into the story, which is a first for me where the author is concerned. The story was slow to the point that it felt like it was not going anywhere. I

This was another great story by Ms. Foster. The characters Addy and Jake have to work toward their HEA as they battle trust issues, control issues, insecurities, their lust for each other as well as their pasts. The plot of this story was fast moving but not too fast making this book hard to put down. I enjoyed the return of some of the characters of the previous books as the start of this book was at Duke and Gabriella's wedding with Boone and Trish's wedding to follow. I also enjoyed how famil ...more

I listened to the audio version of this book. I have listened to MANY of Melissa Foster's books. I found myself having a surprisingly difficult time getting into this book. I'm still not sure why. Addy was a pretty strong character who was determined to do things on her own, in her business and when she took off on a hiking trip by herself. Jake was definitely an alpha who wanted to protect her, but was smart enough to step back when her independence came to light. He is a rescue professional, s ...more

Wow. Just blown away by this book. Melissa Foster is one of my favourite contemporary adult romance writers and this book did not disappoint. One of my favourite in the series and can be read as a standalone.
The passion and raw emotion shown by Jake is off the scale! Nice to read about a vulnerable male unafraid to show his feelings. The relationship between Addy and Jake is intense and amazing.
The only reason I give it 4.5 stars out of 5 is that,whilst I loved reading this, it is not a memora

Melissa Foster is just a fantastic writer! I don’t think she has written a story that I haven’t loved yet. Rescued by Love (Book 4 in The Ryders series). Foster writes in a way that even though these books are a part of a series, they can be read as a standalone, without any confusion.

It seemed as if there was more self discovery in this book than others. And I just loved that. I enjoyed watching their “Aha moments” and seeing them reflect upon their lives/relationship more. I loved reading abo

Jake and Addie have been flirting ever since they met at a get together with his siblings. His brother was getting married to Addie's best friend. He had tried to serve himself up on a silver platter for her, but she would not give in. That is until the night of his brother's wedding.

This is not my first rodeo with Melissa Foster, and it’s not my second either. Every time I read one of her books, one question keeps popping up in my head.

How does Melissa Foster’s head look like, from the inside?

I have a couple of suggestions to that question.

In her head, there’s the most beautiful field filled with flowers of all different kind of colors.

Or, her head is filled with characters. She has several villages filled with all sorts of characters.

I actually like both scenarios a lot.

Rescued by Love is Foster’s 4th book in her Ryders series, the 42nd book in her Love in Bloom universe which now exceeds 100 books and novellas. This book is the story of Jake Ryder and Addison (Addy) Dahl. Maybe it’s a generation thing but I struggle early on to warm to characters whenever a lead character male of female treat sex as if it’s nothing more significant than scratching an itch. In this story both Jake and Addy are practitioners of the “hit it and quit it” school of casual

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

4.5* of sexy fun romance.

This is the fourth in this particular series - although there are characters that cross over from most of Ms Foster's wonderful stories. Do read the Ryder books in order, as they keep us up to date with previous romances, weddings et al.

The Ryder children have all been falling in love and giving us wonderful stories each time - but Jake has been very resistant to any such thing. He felt he had f

Addison Dahl is a talented fashion designer that has been feeling a bit lost lately, so she's searching for a new path to pursue. At this point in her life, her best friend, Gabriella's wedding on Elpitha Island couldn't have come at a better time. Addy's going to have a weekend of fun in the sun, before she goes off by herself into the wilderness to find herself, while roughing it. And while she's not in the market for a relationship, Gabriella's brother-in-law, Jake, leave her thoughts, or lat ...more

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Jake has been the Ryder family playboy but with his siblings getting married and having babies he might almost be grown up enough for a relationship of his own. When an ongoing flirtation with Addy becomes more intense than he anticipated, he doesn’t know what to do. And while Addy loves sex and enjoys hook-ups, she might be even more afraid of relationships than Jake is.

I appreciated a romance where the heroine is unabashedl

I'm deeply in love with all the Ryders! I mean it! Every single one!

Jake Ryder is a SAR professional, he's committed to his job because there's nothing more he loves than being outdoors, he's also, like all the Ryders brothers, a gorgeous alpha male who has been lusting after Addy, his sister in law's best friend, for months. Even though, he's been relentless pursuing and charming her, Addy's still resisting the chemistry between them and that's driving him crazy.

Let me just say that Jake and Addy are one of the hottest couples Melissa has ever written. These two are super charged, magnetic, frickin' hot hot hot!

Both Jake and Addy are of the adage... One and Done. Neither of them has a need or want for a relationship and after months of flirting and teasing the two hook up at Jake's sister's wedding. The only thing is that they never expected it to feel so different from the rest. Jake is immediately taken by Addy, but Addy is on a mission to prove that

Well as usual Melissa Foster has stuffed so much goodness into one book it makes you just want to squeeze the stuffing right out of it! I loved this book and I adored Jake & Addy!!
They may just be one of her hottest couples yet and believe me that is saying a lot, because all of her couples are seriously hot together! Speaking of hot, is there a Ryder brother who isn't hot? I think not.
Jake Ryder is extremely protective and a shameless flirt. He is as gorgeous as he is alpha and Addy is as beau

I may be a bit bias. . .

I love these books. I love the Ryders. And I have come to love the overall series Love in Bloom. I get myself a family of those that embrace love and live life to the fullest in some form or fashion. Whether it be love of life, friends, family, having a good time. This family knows how to do it right. This time around I get to see how Jake takes on falling in love. He was determined to get Addy. Once he had her, one night was not enough for him. How was he to convince th

I loved this book, it's full of humor and passion, the chemistry between the two protagonists is really strong and the setting is amazing,
Addison is the daughter of a famous fashion designer, a possessive father that left no freedom of choice to her and her mother. She is very independent and doesn't want to get married for fear of repeating the mistakes of her parents. She needs a very intriguing and intelligent man but she can't find anyone able to arouse her interest. The only able to succeed

Melissa Foster has done it again! This book is fantastic, funny and emotional. Both Jake and Addy are strong and stubborn. He just wants her and she just wants to show her independence and that she is strong enough to do things on her own and for herself. When they do come together Addy realizes that maybe it is not so bad to have someone like Jake there to be your partner in crime so to speak and to work as a team. The love scenes are so hot that they melt the pages and leave you yearning for m ...more

The teasing and flirting will have you all excited. The sex and kisses are toe curling and ho

Jake Ryder has always come across as a cocky, arrogant player...and maybe he was...until he met Addison 'Addy' Dahl. Then, all bets were off!
This is a sexy fun read, and it's great to see Jake turning himself inside out for a woman, as he's never been more than a love 'em and leave 'em type of guy. But Addy is also strong willed, and having a famous, controlling father, she is determined to make her own way in the world.

Addy and Jake are a mass of contradictions. On the surface you have people who are self assured and thrive on independence, yet the deeper you dig the bigger the mess. From trust issues to control issues, insecurities and a chasm of painful truths, falling in love is an uphill battle for these loners. Addy was a work in progress. Sort of a switch of roles. Addy was the objectifier and Jake the aggressor. She saw sex as a means to an end. Jake from the start seemed to be all in. Rescued by Love s ...more

Another favourite!

How does Melissa do it? Every book I love more than the last, actually that's only partly true as all her books are incredible.

The way she writes pulls you in to the characters lives from the start and makes you see not what is just on the surface of the character but deep down too.

I love this series so much for many reasons but reading about the characters we have already read about and seeing more of their story unfold is amazing.

This is another great book by Melissa Foster. Of course, I'll be 100% honest and say that there hasn't been a book by her that I haven't enjoyed! The banter, arguing and stuff going on between Addison and Jake was what made the book, I think! Along with their chemistry. Addison is a stubborn woman, and Jake is equally as stubborn, but will do almost anything for his "sexy girl". The sex scenes in this book are uber hot, as are Addison and Jake. He's super protective over her, even before they of ...more

If you like contemporary romance then this is a book you are going to like! This is the fourth book in the Love in Bloom series, but it is also a great stand alone read. I love all Melissa Foster’s books. Jake and Addison who are loners which makes their falling in love quite a battle. Although it was a battle that I absolutely loved and felt it was what brought the book together. Another thing I really enjoyed in this book was the chemistry between Jake and Addison.

Rescued by Love is the fourth Ryders book in the much larger Love in Bloom series by Melissa Foster. Each book is a standalone story, so though the characters are connected you won't have any problems jumping in at any time. If you follow my reviews at all, you will know of my love for Melissa's books! I highly recommend absolutely anything with her name on it, and her newest, Rescued by Love is no exception.
