Description

In this heartfelt romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks, a daring volunteer fireman rescues a single mom--only to discover that falling in love might be the greatest risk of all.

When confronted by raging fires or deadly accidents, volunteer fireman Taylor McAden feels compelled to take terrifying risks to save lives. But there is one leap of faith Taylor can't bring himself to make: he can't fall in love. For all his adult years, Taylor has sought out women who need to be rescued, women he leaves as soon as their crisis is over and the relationship starts to become truly intimate.

When a raging storm hits his small Southern town, single mother Denise Holton's car skids off the road. The young mom is with her four-year-old son Kyle, a boy with severe learning disabilities and for whom she has sacrificed everything. Taylor McAden finds her unconscious and bleeding, but does not find Kyle. When Denise wakes, the chilling truth becomes clear to both of them. Kyle is gone. During the search for Kyle, a connection between Taylor and Denise takes root. Taylor doesn't know that this rescue will be different from all the others.

    I was skeptical about reading this book because multiple reviews said that it was boring. This book is NOT boring. I thoroughly enjoyed every character (my favorite being Kyle). After reading, you will feel as if you are so close to the characters that you know them in your real life. You will go through a roller-coaster of emotions. I love a happy ending. Definitely worth reading.

    Who ever says this is a bad and boring book had no taste whatsoever because one I read the first page to this I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN!!! It's wonderful how Taylor and Denise fall in love and name their child after Mitch, Taylor's best friend who died in a fire while Taylor tried to save him, and how Taylor legally adopted Kyle after him and Denise hit married. Like seriously who wouldn't like this book

    One of Nicholas Sparks best books. Truly captured by not only the love between a man and a woman but by the love and dedication a mother has for her son.
  • Best book I've ever read

    Nicholas sparks is my favorite author and i've read almost all of his books, but the rescue was honestly the best one. It is defiantly a page turner and I read the whole thing in 2 days. It's great so if your going to get a Nicholas Sparks book get this one!
