Review: Rescued by Stephanie St. Klaire

by Elisa Hordon


So I had been looking for a new romance to sink my teeth into and nothing had really grabbed me lately, I mean I've read some good romances but I was searching for AWESOME, book boyfriend worthy, swoon worthy romance and something a little different as well would be good.

So with my wish list in mind, I was surfing Amazon as I do most days, but I still didn't find anything that grabbed my eye, but then I got a friend request through from a Stephanie St. Klaire, I noticed she was an author and friends with other author friends of mine so I clicked on confirm friend request and OMG I am so glad I did because this is where I found my next new LOVE, yes that’s right LOVE and I'm not just talking about the gorgeous Dawson who stars in Rescued.

I am totally fan girling about Stephanie, seriously what a writer and this one is only her first book now I am just hanging out for book 2. I figure it can only get better from here, but back to the book, Rescued.

Dawson Tayler, EMT, superhero, sparkly fairy and all round gorgeous hunk, you will so get the sparkly fairy reference when you read the book and I highly recommend you go get the book NOW.

Sam Taylor, nurse, mum, best friend, super sweet and super cute with a gentle sassyness about her that comes from a hard upbringing and being fiercely independent.

Neither Dawson nor Sam do relationships, or so they keep telling themselves. Everyone around them in the small town of McKenzie Ridge can see they are perfect for each other, but Sam and Dawson prefer their little world of denial and friendship. So they just keep hanging out together and breakfast after their shifts turns into breakfast every morning, which turns into lunch which then turns into one hot steamy kiss at the park which is all around town in a flash and everyone is still waiting for Sam and Dawson to bite the bullet and admit they are in a relationship.

McKenzie Ridge is a small town where everyone knows everyone's business and when tragedy strikes it hits the whole town hard. With Sam being a nurse and Dawson an EMT they are both on the front line when anything bad happens. But what if one night you were called out and it was someone you loved in a mangled mess of a car, what would you do? How would you handle it? And what if it turns out that the accident wasn't really an accident at all? What if something more sinister was happening and this was only a small part of the puzzle? But no way; this is McKenzie Ridge, small town USA, nothing sinister ever happens, that’s just all for tv and movies, isn't it?

This is one story you need to really read to pick up the subtle hints to something more going on. Stephanie St.Klaire, is such an awesome writer, the way she describes the small town atmosphere and comradery make you want to move right in, The way she describes the people and their feelings makes you feel everything right along with them and when it comes to creating memorable characters who will stay with you long after you have finished reading, well let's just say Stephanie writes exceptional characters, believable characters and characters who feel more like family, you just want to keep reading.

Dawson and Sam's romance is one for the books, I told Stephanie it needed a warning label 'Frequent Cold Showers Required While Reading' and I was not kidding Sam and Dawson sizzle on the pages in a sexy, sweet and endearing way, that just makes you want their happily ever after to come true but will outside forces set to cause harm stop Sam and Dawson's happiness........

Keep an eye out for book 2 in the McKenzie Ridge series out soon.

  1. Really great book. It was a love story but yet a suspense filled story that I didn't want to put down. Finished it in just over 1 day (even with a full-time job) Can't wait until the next book comes out!!
