Addison Dahl is excited to return to Elpitha Island for her best friend Gabriella’s wedding. A weekend of sun and fun is just what she needs before setting out on her newest adventure—roughing it in the wilderness. Addison is tough, she’s independent, and she doesn’t “do” feelings toward men. But lately her friend—and Gabriella’s brother-in-law—sinfully sexy and ornery-as-hell Jake Ryder has been the star of her late-night fantasies, and she can’t get him out of her mind. It doesn’t help that the chemistry between them is scorching hot. With any luck, a few days in the wilderness will snap that craziness out of her head.

As a top search and rescue professional, Jake Ryder spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. But there’s only one woman he wants, and he’s spent the last several months trying to get beautiful, smart, and sassy Addison to give him one sinful night. He’s sure one night will lead to more.

The night of the wedding the heat between Jake and Addy ignites, and they’re powerless to resist their explosive passion. Wild kisses, sensual touches, and heartfelt conversations brings them closer together, and when the weekend ends, Jake is determined to keep Addy close and make her his. But Addy has other plans...

  • Great Book

    By AshleyHedden
    Rescued by Love by Melissa Foster was a great read. This is the fourth book in The Ryder’s series. Addison has returned to Elpitha Island for Gabriella’s wedding. Jake and Addison decide to give into their urges and spend the weekend together. I absolutely loved reading Addison and Jakes story. I listened to the audiobook and thought it was absolute perfection. The narrator did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life and giving them much more depth. I can’t wait to read more Ryder’s stories.

  • Jake and Addison.

    By Diva Princess1
    I am in love with Jake. He was just that guy who found love and wasn't afraid to embrace it. Addison was funny, and playful and stubborn. Jake had been eyeing Addy since they met, but played hard to get. But he was determined to change her mind. So when his brother and her best friend got married he took advantage of an opportunity. Great reading love this story.
  • Another great Ryder!

    4 1/2 STARS! Melissa Foster has quite a way with words when she creates a sexy bad boy! He might be slightly arrogant and a total player, but he’s adorably endearing and we have to fall for him anyway! These Ryders are quite the bunch … a great, close-knit family that is always there to love and support each other. I enjoy them so much … and can’t wait for more! Jake Ryder has been lusting after Addison Dahl for months now, but she’s been playing hard to get. He knows he gets to her, but she refuses to give in and have a fling with him. He works hard as a Search and Rescue guy, but when he has some down time, he lives to enjoy life … and preferably a sexy woman! Addy isn’t as immune to Jake’s charms as she tries to pretend. She honestly hasn’t been able to get him off her mind in the months since they first met and he turned on the heated charm. She doesn’t do feelings for a man … she just has a good time and lives for herself, so she’s NOT happy that this guy will not get out of her head! She’s looking forward to getting away for a few days in the mountains and hopes that will give her a fresh perspective. When temptation gets to be too much and they share a night together, will they be able to walk away?
  • Sexy and sweet

    By jensreadingo
    The attraction between Jake and Addie cannot be denied, no matter how much she tries to ignore it. He's been propositioning her for months, but she refuses, thinking it could damage the relationship between her and Jake's family. She finally gives in thinking it will be just like all her other one night stands, but Jake wants more than one night, and so does she. It was interesting to see Jake change his playboy ways so easily while Addie struggles with losing her independence if she is in a relationship. I loved the way she slowly realizes that loving someone, being with them and sometimes needing their help does not take away from who she is or what she wants. My only negative is that she was a bit too stubborn for me and it was frustrating the way she kept pushing Jake away. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

    By GmaLeena
    Addy's wanted to get down and dirty with Jake ever since he started flirting with her. She doesn't want to rock the boat or cause any issues with her best friend since Gabriella is making into Jake's family, do and just flirts back, walks away, compares him to every guy, and then dreams about him. Jake has wanted Addy since the first time he seen her, but she turns his advances down every time. By the time they're at his brother Duke and Gabriella's wedding on Elpitha Island, he's gotta find away to break through her stubbornness. He's just got to have her. They agree to one night, but it's one night enough? Addy doesn't have the best role models when it comes to relationships, one night stands are easier. But can she only do one night with Jake? You'll have to read RESCUED BY LOVE to find out, I cannot wait for the next story! This is another amazing love story by Melissa Foster! Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 17 and older! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest blog tour review.
