Saying the book is predictable isnt a downpoint, we all know whats going to happen, it's just how we get to that point which makes us read these books but I wished I hadnt wasted my money on this one.
Throughout the entire book I'm waiting for the romance, those little 'moments' between the characters, parts that make you laugh. This book had nothing, the defining moment when she realized she loved him was because he bought her doritos and soda and earlier in the book she said that she liked doritos and soda, wow so romantic, he clearly knows her well.
The love scenes were also rushed and not on par with her earlier books. There was just no passion, everything seemed forced. In fact the entire relationship seemed forced.
Having also read a few other of her new ones (which also lack in quality and depth) I'm left wondering if the author has run out of steam or is under pressure from publishers to churn out 'mummy porn'.
Having read all her books, the characters in this one seemed recycled from her previous novels and I think she needs to move on from the small towns and the quirky characters that live there.
The trouble with Sadie and Vince was that I never really believed they fell in love and that has been the trouble in her last few books.
I usally download books to my kindle nowadays but I had this on pre-order as a paperback. The layout of the book with the wide margins was annoying and it seemed a good way to pad the book out and make it seem longer than it actually is. It is in essence quite a short story and only took me a couple of hours to read.
Rescue Me is the story of Sadie Jo and Vince and is set in Lovell, Texas .. I was looking forward to this book and wanted to see how it linked with the other books - Daisy's back in town and the novella Crazy on you are both set in Lovell, and Vince's sister Autumn is one of the main characters in the book Any man of Mine and also makes a brief appearance in this book !!
The thing about Rachel Gibson's books that are starting to get a bit repetitive is the over all plot .. Girl meets Boy - Girl and Boy become involved - Boy and Girl separate - Boy and Girl get back together for the big HAE and will likely briefly appear in future books.
Now I know that this is generally what her writing is aimed at and I can handle this, apart from the fact that I have found her characters starting to annoy me, or the background parts unneeded and too fast paced.
What I would like to see is perhaps more of the characters that have already featured in her books previously as side characters such as Deeann Gunderson, or The young twins .. Featuring twins as the main characters could be a nice change. Or how about a story with Nathan Parrish from Daisy's back in town? Or Lexie from Simply Irresistible? or Adam Taber and Wally from True Confessions ??
Just an idea x
I look forward to reading Rachel's next book, although I can already guess the outcome I still enjoy the read =)
Sadie Hollowell,is forced by gulit into a bridesmaid dress for her cousin Tally Lynn's wedding. as she is driving into town, (Lovett, Texas ) she sees a truck on the side of the road so she stops to help, Vince Haven is visiting his crazy Aunt Luraleen. when his truck breaks down after getting a lift from a pretty stranger she ask's him to be her date at a wedding she has to attend, he turns her down and after feels like he owes her a favour for helping him so he shows up at the reception. Vince has issues from the serving in the Navy Seals and his best friend dying in his arms and doesnt want a relationship and Sadie just wants to attend the wedding and leave town, but when Sadies dad is taken ill and Vince's aunt makes him an offer he can't refuse, they both could be hanging around town for a while, they decided to have a friends with benefits relationship but will it work when both of them start to devolp feelings for each other!
This was basicly the whole book, not much new or not been done before and I found it boring Sadie is a bit of a moaner and Vince is sometimes just blah couldnt put my finger on it I liked him when he was in his sisters book but maybe he is better in small doses! this was just not for me
