Ryder Daniels is all too familiar with rejection. His parents cut off contact because he’s gay and his boyfriend left him, choosing drugs over love. Aside from his rescued pit bull, his only joy is hanging out with his younger brother. Then his mother does the unthinkable and forbids them to see each other, leaving Ryder devastated and alone. His friends urge him to date, but Ryder would rather throw himself into working at the dog rescue and figuring out a way to see his brother again.
When Jason Mallory’s girlfriend gives him an ultimatum to get married, he shocks everyone by breaking up with her instead. He believes he’s too busy for a relationship now that the construction company he started with his brother is taking off. When he discovers a group of abandoned pit bulls and calls the local dog rescue group to pick them up, an uncomfortable encounter with Ryder causes Jason to question feelings he’s hidden deep inside for years.
Jason and Ryder build a friendship, until an unexpected kiss sparks the attraction they’ve been fighting. Jason gives Ryder unconditional love and helps him reconnect with his brother while Ryder shows Jason the passion he’s always missed in relationships. Together they must battle through their family differences and ugly prejudices. Only then can they prove that once you find the right person to love, there’s no turning back.
This is a re-release of the original edition published in 2014. It has brand new content as well as the entire book being revised.
Cute boys and puppies! Hand to the bible, I am known as The Crazy Dog Lady to friends and family and irritated neighbors, so I’m just a bit of a pit bull fan. A story about a pit bull rescue organization run by a sweet but lonely gay attorney and his two best friends and the sexually confused construction foreman he falls in love with would have to pretty much suck ass for me not to like it. Luckily, Felice Stevens knows her shit and killed it with Rescued. This book had everything. Drop dead gorgeous men. Kind, understanding family members who support these boys no matter what. An evil, cold hearted mother you’ll love to hate. Screen melting, retina scorching man-on-man sex action. And, OMG, the epilogue brought me TO MY FUCKING KNEES PEOPLE. MY KNEES!!!! KNEES!
So. Happy puppies. Hot men. Hotter sex. HEA to the 10th power. Fuck YEAH I recommend this book!
