A steamy medical first responder romance...

Ryan Reynolds never imagined she'd be taking a job as a sex-free escort when she started nursing school, but with bills piling up and rent looming over, she's forced to take matters in her own hands-even if that means agreeing to the oldest profession.

So, what if she's a nursing student by day and an escort by night? She is an in

This book features a sexy, steamy romance between two strong-willed, vibrant and ambitious people. It takes us through their first meeting, their first hookup, their commitment to each other and then their realization that that something is lacking in their lives. Settle in for fun, flirty banter, some very steamy encounters and some angsty relationship woes.

Chris is a hot, sexy fireman with loads of self confidence and a huge protective streak. He first meets Ryan at a swanky restaurant where

Okay, so I have read all of Syd’s books in this series. And this was by FAR my favorite. My biggest complaint with some romance books is that I don’t feel the tension. I want the tension! I want the angst! Relationships aren’t rainbows and butterflies and happiness all the time, and I think the relationship between Ryan and Chris shows this. It starts off with external conflict, which they overcome because with a new and exciting love it’s easier to tackle problems together. But the second half ...more

This is the 4th book in this series and is Chris and Ryan’s story. Ryan is a nursing student who work hard and struggles financially, which leads her to finding another means to support herself. Chris is a sext firefighter, and when these two meets it is in a restaurant where he has just been placed firmly into the friend zone, and Ryan is struggling with her handsy date, which brings a protective Chris to her aid. Fast forward a tad and their relationship is struggling as they are kept busy wit ...more

Chris and Ry’s story wasn’t what I expected, and it saddened me. This is not, the Chris I had come to know, and love, in the other stories. He’s great at the beginning of the story, being the guy who has just been dumped, by our lovable, Jamie. Yet, still finds it in himself to be, Ry’s knight in shining armor. For me, it is the eight-year jump, that sours me.

Not only does the feel of the story change, but the character of Chris for a good portion of the book seems to change. It does, however,

I really love how the first bit of this book is a sweet and easy read. Ryan is struggling and deciding how she wants to save herself in the most unconventional way. That way leading her to Chris who was struggling with wanting more but with the wrong person. I love how their relationship is an equal balance of love and respect for one another. No matter how much he wants to rush in and save her day, he allows her t

Who doesn’t love a hot sexy fireman lead because I sure as hell do! Chris and Ryan meet at a fancy restaurant where he feels the need to step in, and save her from a handsy date. After being her knight in shining armor he ends up with Ryan’s phone number. Their instant attraction just spills off the pages making this an absolute must read on my list for 2020. This was actually my first Syd Ryan book, and I can’t wait to read more. Be sure to add this to your GoodReads list.

I read Ryan & Chris’s short story when it was it a part of Risk Everything anthology. If you haven’t read the short story then the first 17 chapters is how long the short story was. My review is going to be the second part of the book.

It was good to catch up with these characters six years later. Ryan & Chris were both still trying to balance their work life and their relationship. Ryan & Chris’s journey was not easy, but worth it in the end.

I voluntarily reviewed this book.

Ryan is a hardworking nursing student when she meets Chris the firefighter. Their attraction is immediate but Ryan is driven to be the best she can be at her job. Can Chris convince her that she can have everything she wants?
Nov 27, 2020 rated it it was amazing
This book can be read as a standalone and it's my first from this author, but definitely not my last, I'll probably check out the previous books of this series when I have time. It's a romance that's a little like love at first sight, but it does take its time to develop and grow instead of being perfect instantly. The book lasts a lot longer than I expected and the story goes way beyond what a romance book would normally go, but it's entertaining.

Ryan was put in a terrible position when her ro

In this book we meet Miss Ryan Reynolds... Yes that's correct Ryan Reynolds lol and this book I think is fabulously written! I loved Chris's character he was dedicated to his lady, but their story I think highlights realistic components of relationships! Definitely recommend well worth your time! ❤❤

I enjoyed reading Rescuing Ryan a good addition to the series. The storyline is enjoyable with small town charm,friends, gossip and love. I believe a story is only as powerful as its characters and Chris and Ryan leaped from the page. I love stories where the hero and heroine are immediately drawn to each other, but have to overcome their own fears in addition to external obstacles. If you enjoy romances that are sizzling and heartfelt, I highly recommend this book.

There was so much truth to this story. Love is great and the books I've read til now show only happy. I love hearing people going thru true troubles of life and being with the one you love. Not everything is rosy and I love the way they met. Thank you for writing this as I just felt right.

Cute story about a girl doing what it takes to be successful in life even if it means an adage old profession. Ryan meets a sexy firefighter and suddenly it’s harder than she thought to struggle through. The book takes us through the meeting and getting together of Ryan and Chris but later shifts the story seven years later. A big skip for the most part but still a good story.

Rescuing Ryan is apart of the Forever series and it's my favorite one yet! I originally read this story when it was part of an anthology and it's even better now!
Ryan is a tenacious woman who is trying to better herself. When she finds herself in a bad financial situation, she goes outside of her comfort zone to survive.
We've met Chris before and I was so happy to know he was getting his own story. He's a firefighter who wants a partner in life and he keeps choosing the wrong women.

This short story that tells Chris and Ryan's relationship was in my opinion, the best one so far in this series. Ryan is such a hard working nursing student and despite the struggles that she faces financially, she seems to have a strong personality and is a fighter. When Chris, the extremely sexy firefighter, meets her at the restaurant, it starts something different in their relationship than just friendship. They just have to work on communicating and it becomes pretty obvious as the story pr ...more

I loved this book!! Chris is so sweet and romantic and Ryan is a beautiful soul. Together they are just the best!! They have some tough times to go through but nothing too overly dramatic and no cheating. The writing of this book is so good and bring you into the world that Syd has created. I need to go back and read more in this series because they are so good! I’m hoping the next story is about Iris and Harrison!

Ryan is in nursing school with bills to pay.. but her roommate bailed and left her in a bind. When her bestie suggests taking a job as an escort, Ryan takes the chance!

Sometimes things don't work out the way you think they will though.. and Ryan finds out real quick when she meets Chris.

Chris doesn't like it when he finds out Ryan's current job ... but she doesn't let his negativity stop her from living her life.

Ups, downs, laughter and angst..this story has it all and I enjoyed every page!

Just remember when you were in school and would do anything to finish on time and you were doing it all on your own? Ryan was doing just that. In her last year of nursing school she needed money bad and didn't have time for a full-time job. She does what any college student would do in a pinch, find a quick paying occupation. Chris swoops in and rescues Ryan when she needed him the most. This is a sweet short story. ...more

This is the fourth book in the Finding My Forever series and so good!! Ryan is in nursing school and in some financial trouble, which leads her to working as an escort. Chris saves Ryan when her date gets handsy and their attraction is immediate. They decide to be just friends, but over time their friendship becomes so much more. Such a wonderful story and one I enjoyed immensely. Highly recommend.

Ryan needed to get her head out of her butt. Chris needed to remember communication is key. They both needed to do a better job communicating. I actual like that Doctor Hattie had a thing for her friend Iris the snarky one. Good story, LOTS of details.
