I am so happy that I managed to get a copy of this book. Hopefully it will be available on amazon soon. It was a quick and very safe steamy read.

Zara has been a part of the system since being a young child and has been moved from family to family never really having anywhere to call home or feel that she has ever belonged, that is until she gets to Camp Hardwood and everything within her settles. After hearing a rumour Zara decides to go exploring in the woods and soon finds herself lost, alone

I really enjoyed this book. It was short and drama free. It's cute with a hot alpha man, what else do you need? ...more

"Rescued by the Ranger" is the story of Zara and Moose.

Oh I absolutely loved it!

Maybe it was my utter withdrawal from AR, maybe it was the stress I was facing at work, or maybe it was my recent reading history..THIS smut was exactly what I needed! A grumpy wild but sweet hero, an innocent heroine, insta love, loads of mountain sex, cute milky bred HEA.

Tots kinky!

Just when I think our Queens of smut can't top their previous Alphas and they bring this dirty talking ranger.

Moose is content living on his little part of paradise. He ventures out when needed but mostly keeps to himself. When a call comes in that there is a missing camper he sets out to find her. What he doesn't expect is to find the missing part of his soul. The one that completes him.

Zara has bounced from foster home all her life. She has never fit in ever. She's never been welcomed. Having

Yeeeeaaaassss!!😈 Loved it.
This was a quickie Alexa Riley story. It featured Zara and Moose who were briefly mentioned in the previous book.

Zara barely turned 18 and no idea how old Moose is. I’m assuming there’s a larger age gap but I can’t be certain. He’s the Ranger at Camp Hardwood and is asked to help find Zara after she wanders out into the woods and gets lost. He finds her and he’s immediately lusting after her. Coincidentally, she’s been watching him too.

There’s a storm so they end up back at Moose’s cabin. Not fi
I Will Make a Playlist for that Book
I’ve read a lot of Alexa Riley books in my time and while ALL of them follow the same equation (alpha male + virgin = instalove and trapping her via means of pregnancy), this one was by far the worst one I’ve read...and that’s coming from a big Alexa Riley fan!

Do I expect Austen level romantic notions and Hemingway writing? No! That’s why I read Alexa Riley every once in a while! Sometimes, you just want something quick, dirty and won’t take up space in your mind afterwards.

However, this book w

Just before a storm hits he gets a call that a young woman, Zara, has gone missing from tge camp. Littke does he knowns that when he goes to find her...he will find everything he ever wanted. Highly recommended 🔥 👌 👍 👏 💯 🙌 🔥

It's a hot short book. You can easily squeeze it in, between work and life who prevents you from reading.
A Alpha Male who is very possessive and just claims his woman. The story between Zara and Moose is great. It can be read as a standalone. Even if I think it's best to read in order. Especially because parts are in the first book.

Be warned this is a insta-love story, but I loved every second of it. Alexa Riley is really great a packing a lot into a small page count without making the reader feel like they are missing something. Moose is an alpha male through and through and I loved every second of it.

Zara’s an orphan who’s been bounced around the system. She’s been watching Moose the Camp Harwood Ranger. Zara finally decides to see where he lives and boy does she get the full tour. Great quick read. Getting lost in the wilderness can lead to all sorts of things. Loved the HEA and look forward to more adventures at Camp Harwood.

Rescued by the Ranger (Camp Hardwood, #2) by Alexa Riley ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hero - Moose. Ranger for Camp Hardwood. Former military. Tall enough that he has to duck to enter most buildings (Zara also says he’s 3x bigger than her). Strong and solid, but not chiseled or cut. Dark hair, a beard he shaves down in the summer and grows out in the winter, and dark green eyes.

Heroine - Zara. Camper at Camp Hardwood. 5’5 with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Overall Thoughts - I really liked it, but this story definitely fo
