Title: Rescue My Heart (Animal Magnetism, Book Three)
Author: Jill Shalvis
Expected Release Date: November 6, 2012

ARC provided by NetGalley

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 past—the woman whose heart he once broke. Still gorgeous, still tough-as-nails, but this time, unusually vulnerable.

Holly Reid learned the hard way to never depend on a man for anything. Now, of all men, it’s 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 risks—including opening their hearts one more time.

Shalvis is the go-to author for sweet romance with a hint of spice and a dollop of humor. Her characters are always the kind you wish truly existed and wish could be your bffs.

Adam Connelly is the last to fall in love in Belle Haven and the Alpha male isn't going down without a matter how madly attracted he is to Holly Reid. He left her once, thinking she was better off without him, and joins the National Guard. When an injury returns him his old hometown, Adam finds himself face to face with the woman who still holds his heart.

This is a sweet and endearing story of first love rekindled after years of separation. It has the humorous dialog and quirky characters that is Shalvis's trademark.

There was nothing more dick shriveling than lusting after a woman and being caught at it by her father.
And yet another little teaser that captures Shalvis's talent with words...

She blew out a breath. "I'm really going to need you to speak."
"Can't. You took your clothes off and my brain shut down."
There is a strong sense of family, loyalty and the occasional cute, cuddly animals--and then there's the highly-charged chemistry between Adam and Holly. There are no real surprises with this story, but it gives you the warm fuzzies and makes you smile.


  1. Great review. Love how he got caught lusting over her by her father. Thanks for sharing the teaser "Can't. You took your clothes off and my brain shut down." Love how she makes not able to think. Hope you are feeling better.

    1. WD--Shalvis is my go-to gal when I need a humorous romantic read.
      And the shoulder thingy has its moments, thanks for asking.
      Hopefully going to PT next week-we shall see :)
