Book Club

Okay, so I'm not actually in a book club, but I do enjoy reading a good book. I just finished reading The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks, and it was awesome! I definitely recommend this book to any gal.. not really a book guys would like though, it's for chicks.

Anyways, here's the description from Nicholas' website, http://www.nicholassparks.com/books/the-rescue

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, the connection between Taylor and Denise takes root. Taylor doesn’t know that this rescue will be different from all the others, demanding far more than raw physical courage. It will lead him to the possibility of his own rescue from a life lived without love and will require him to open doors to his past that were slammed shut by pain. This rescue will dare him to live life to the fullest by daring to love.

It was a really great book, I was a little uneasy about how it would end at first but it was perfect. And for whatever reason I kept referring to Taylor as Tyler.. I think because Taylor can also be a girls name it kinda threw me off. But, if you're looking for a good book, this is an easy read. I give it an A-.


  1. The only Nicholas Sparks I've ever read was 'The Lucky One,' but man, oh man, did that have an amazing, can't-put-it-down ending.

    1. The Lucky One is on my to-read list, especially with the movie out! Another great Sparks book is 'A Walk to Remember' I loooved that one!


Thanks for stopping by! :)
