The Rescue – Nicholas Sparks
Contemporary, romance, fiction.
A single mother and her child are traveling through a storm when disaster hits. When she comes to and is rescued, she wonders where her son is. A search party to look for her son. She introduces herself as Denise and her son’s name is Kyle. The search wasn’t easy since her son was not fully capable of speaking. The firefighter that saved her tells her he will do all that he can to find her child. Taylor, the firefighter, always rescues women and once they want more from him, such as a committed relationship, he ghosts them. However, something about Denise makes him rethink that maybe he can fall in love. He grew close with Denise and her son. A romance slowly blossoms between them.
I saw this on the shelf of many bookstores and always read the back but never added it to my cart. I have read only so few of Sparks books and I’m glad I decided to read this one. I needed a slow burn romance read that is uplifting and light. This novel brought just that with this narrative between Denise and Taylor. Sparks always finds a way to make these characters feel so alive and real with their interactions and dialogues. The writing was phenomenal and I actually was able to read this novel in one sitting. Overall this novel made me cry and laugh because of how these two characters interacted along with her son. As soon as Taylor began playing baseball with Kyle I knew that Taylor was going to be even more involved in Denise’s life. I definitely recommend this novel because it does melt hearts in good ways.
