This was a good read. Olivia and Weston both really liked each other in high school. The problem was not neither one had said something. They both graduated yet never got over each other. After an accident they get to start spending time together. There is some drama of course but thankfully in the end it all gets worked out.

Oh My Gosh!! Where do I begin? First, this is a new author to me. Then, the sexy beast of a fireman. Yes, you got it ladies and he knows he is hot. I was melting into a puddle of goo. I liked the hero and the heroine and their back stories. Though I think that Weston back story was heartbreaking. The story has some flashback passages f so we get to know what happened to make Weston do what he does.

This was my first book by this author and the blurb alone had me hooked!

I fell in love with this book in the first few chapters! I thought the characters were well written and extremely likable. Their past and the depths of their demons made it easy to feel compassion for them. I fell head over heels for Weston and his back story!

Somewhere around the middle of the book things started to sputter out for me. The story line was moving along at a great pace until the hero and heroine's "second chan

Kara Liane and her writing are new to me, but as soon as I began to read Rescue She I quickly fell in love with her small town romance storyline and wonderful characters. Kara Liane perfectly combines a sweet second-chance romance, secrets, and scorching hot chemistry to deliver a book you’ll love getting lost in.

Weston and Olivia met when they were in high school and fell for each other. Despite their feelings and Olivia pursuing Weston their romance never takes off. Weston believes his abusiv

This is a totally new to me author, but one that I'm sure I'll be following in the future. I've always enjoyed books about those in the emergency services finding their HEA. There is just something about the ones that give so much to their community finally finding love that makes me happy. This story is all of that, and so much more!

Olivia had a wonderful life, amazing parents, until her mother got sick and died when she was a teenager. She lost her way for a bit, until a new guy started at her

I have read everything Kara Liane has written, from her debut book, until now, and all I can say is WOW.

This book is well thought out, well written and well executed.

Wes is deep, troubled and all tangled up inside (why do I love that so much?) Wes has a bit of an issue with emotions, and rightfully so. So much, that he has pushed his love of Olivia to the side in an effort to save her from him. (Seriously, why do I love troubled heroes SO much?)

Olivia is just wonderful. As much as I love me a g

Kara Liane is a new to me author, and I found myself falling in love with her writing very quickly into this story. Weston & Olivia fell in love when they were in High School, but despite those strong teenage feelings, they never quite made it to relationship status because of Weston's hangups, so they end up going their separate ways. Now 16 years later, they come face to face when Olivia is in an accident, and Weston is a first responder at the scene. Fate has given them a second chance so wil ...more

Olivia had a major crush on Weston back in high school. She even went as far as to ask him to prom! However, things did not turn out the way she wanted and they ended up not having the relationship they both so badly wanted. Fast-forward sixteen years and they are now both established in their careers and still carry that torch for each other.

Rescue She is a second chance romance filled with angst, romance, smut and all the

Sweet, sexy second-chance romance

Wes and Olivia clicked instantly in high school, but his family life prevented him from pursuing anything more than friendship. Separated after high school, it's not until many years later that their paths cross again and give them a second chance. There are quite a few obstacles that they have to overcome before they get their HEA, but their devotion to each other never wanes, even when they're not able to express it.

This was a bit of a slow burn love story, wi

This is my first read by this author. The blurb hooked me in and I'm a sucker for a good firefighter hero too. This was a second chance romance which can be hit or miss for me...

The main characters went to both school together and liked each other but never made a move and things went no where. The story picks up again 16 years later when unexpected circumstances bring them back into each other's lives. Be prepared for back and forth between the past and present - not my fave writing tactic but.

This is the first book from this author that I have read. I chose it as I adore reading romances with first responders. This one didn't disappoint either. I absolutely fell in love with Weston and Olivia. The secondary characters were quite wonderful as well.

The book was written in my favorite dual POV format. It was very necessary here especially regarding Weston's side. I have never had anything like

3.5 Stars-Not Much of a Connection for Me

Loved the cover and the blurb for Rescue She! I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into the handsome fireman, Weston Thorpe and see what kind of damaged good guy we were dealing with here.

Weston and Olivia knew each other in high school and have lost touch over the years. They are in their early thirties now and haven't really gotten over that high school crush. Which is what I had a hard time connecting with. I could see it if they were high school sweethear

In real life how many people lose out on the love of their life just because they think they are not worthy of the other person. Doubt is something everyone feels and it is wonderful when doubt can be sent out the door. This sweet romance has two people who have known each other since school both are attracted to each other now the only question can they get their act together. Love the characters Wes a firefighter and Liv are two great people and as you read you will want them to have that HEA. ...more

Realizing high school crushes
Olivia and Weston had high school crushes on each other, but neither one knew. They spent 16 years in the “dark”. They meet again after sixteen years when he, now a firefighter, saves her life. Feelings come alive! Likeable characters, sensitive story, and talented writing make this an emotional ride.

Time After Time...

"If love is like fire, then I'll get burned"
Sixteen years is a long time to have an "infatuation" with someone. That's how long Olivia and Weston have pined for the other. While I really liked this story, the start was a little slow and I had a hard time getting into the story-line. I'm glad I stuck with it.

This is a new author to me, and I will certainly be looking out for her work in the future. Weston and Olivia met in high school and did not confess their feelings for each other. Now 16 years later Olivia is in an accident, and Wes is a first responder. Can these two have a second chance at love? No spoilers; this is a definite must read, you will not be disappointed. This is a good story which has me intrigued and hooked throughout, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

This is the first Kara Liane's book I've read and it won't be the last. This book is about second chances between Olivia and Weston who fell in love in high school. But Weston was dealing with issues at home and pushed her away and now he's back. The characters and storyline was well written. This is a sweet and heartwarming story, a must read.
