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 involve ...more

Anna's Herding Cats
Rescue Me was...something. lol

The Gist: One family owned ranch in desperate need of a funding boost and one city girl starting over in life and desperate to learn about ranching so she can fulfill her lifelong dream of buying a ranch of her own and investing short term in a ranch in exchange for them teaching her how everything works. Match made in heaven. Maybe.

Sabrina and Kyle. Sabrina was wonderful. This girl has gone through hell with her mother and her ex-husband who have micromanaged and

To begin with I will always give a separate rating on my romances for their level of steaminess...that way if this is something that makes or breaks your potential to read a book you are not wasting your time.
💖very mild. Either no sex at all or just eluded to.
💖💖 sex scenes are described in this book
💖💖💖little left to the imagination. The author is really painting you a picture
💖💖💖💖 wowzers! this could be the amount of sex, detail, dirty talk, etc.
I gave this book 2 stars and 💖💖.
Im really shock
3 1/2 star read. A prideful Kyle is trying to save his family ranch left to him, his brother and sister after their parents are killed in a auto accident. Sabrina, an heiress, wants to buy a ranch of her own and offers to pay Kyle and his family to teach her the ropes of ranching. Kyle resents Sabrina interference, but agrees to her help.

A typical sexy, naive, and innocent girl meets a strong and proud rancher, he treats her poorly because he wants her and she falls quickly for him. If you like

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.

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?

Oh Mel
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.

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 loved it, thought is was a romantic and funny at times story. Just sorry not to see a story on Brady and Emma.

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 comes to the Rocking M ranch to invest some cash in exchange for learning how to operate her own ranch. one of the owners of the ranch Kyle had a bad go with an ex wife and decides it is pretty much every woman's fault. he relentlessly rips into Sabrina even though they both want to just tumble into bed. they do just that. they snipe some more. everyone loves Sabrina and yells at Kyle no matter what happens. they fight some more. tantrums are thrown. she ...more

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

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

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

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

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

One of Burton's earlier books but so very contemporary in its thrust. The characters are so realistic and the context of the story true to life. As always she writes erotic romance that keeps the reader engaged and interested from page one. As a Burton fan, I was not disappointed and am delighted to have the opportunity to read some of her books that are not in the "hot off the presses" category.

Sabrina shoes up on the ranch that she has invested in little does Kyle know she is the ones that is coming to his rescue. He takes on look and hates the fact she is pretty. He really doesn't want her around but knows he needs her. Sabrina worms her way into his heart and the love begins but can he keep it all together and trust again? A great read and I look forward to more books by this author.
