Review Rescue My Heart by Jill Shalvis
After a tragic stint in the National Guards, Adam Connelly returns to Idaho and to Belle Haven, the animal shelter he owns with his brothers. All Adam wants is to be alone. Then he opens the door to the pastâ€”the woman whose heart he once broke. Still gorgeous, still tough-as-nails, but this time, unusually vulnerable.
Holly learned the hard way to never depend on a man for anything. Now, of all men, Adam is the last one she wants to see, and the only one she needs. Her father has gone missing in the Bitterroot Mountains and she could use someone with tracking skills to help find him.
For Holly and Adam, each with their ghosts, a trek this desperate, this unpredictable, and this intimate, will have its share of risksâ€”including opening their hearts one more time.
This may be the darkest and the simplest Â and most complex of the Animal Magnetism novels. Here’s why. Adam is such a deeply tragic, tormented interesting character. He literally wants nothing to do with Holly, or any person really, simply because of his difficult experiences in the Guard, and Afghanistan, and yet, he is the most caring person ever and those he lets in are in for good, but he doesn’t want to let anyone else in, lest they end up not disappointing him, but making him care then dying or getting hurt where he can’t protect them or keep them from harm. Holly is the epitome of a woman who has been scorned but is trying to keep it from her family. Her pride is the most important thing to her at these moments but when she and Adam finally open up to each other, its explosive and its amazing.
There is nothing better than a hot former military man who is struggling who is able to be healed with the love and caring of a good woman. That is what Rescue My Heart is all about. Its beautiful and its amazing and its fantastic and I love every second of it. Then you add in the cute little pictures we get of Jade and the others from the previous Animal Magnetism novels, and its like coming home again.
