    1. 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, newcomer Felice Stevens knows her shit and killed it with Rescued. This book had everything. Air [...]


    2. 3.5 starsIf you're having a sugar craving, skip the cheesecake, do not pass Go, and head straight to Rescued. You may need to floss extra hard, because holy shit, Harry and Louis have nothing on this one.When love hit these slightly jaded, jilted boys, it burst into FLAMES. There were major declarations of soul-baring, love-you-forever-and-always kind of love on every page. Also included: the VERY best of best friends; the most evil of all mothers AND ex-girlfriends (but fuck 'em because love co [...]


    3. GFY by a new author.For me the real test for reading an author, new or even just new to me, is how the dialogue reads. Choppy unrealistic dialogue just throws me out of story. Happily this wasn't the case here and I found this had a great flow both the dialogue and the storyline that kept me engaged. There was a sweetness to the characters but also a nice balance with heavier issues. I found it more on the angst light scale with the drama not overwhelming the chemistry between the MCs, Ryder and [...]


    4. What a great surprise this book was! I went into this book not have any expectations. I knew it had good feedback but since this is the author's first book- I didn't know if her style of writing would work for me. I'm happy that it was. This was me after I finished:What I loved about it:*Friends to lovers story*Dual POV*Great chemistry between the two main characters*Steamy*Although angsty, it wasn't too much*Great story flow*Great side charactersAnd to be honest- there wasn't anything about the [...]


    5. The pre-order for Rescued is available at the special release week price of $3.99. mybook/RyderandJasoniTunes: bit/RyderandJasonARe: bit/2bDrIS3The newly expanded and revised edition of Rescued will be re-released on September 5th. The book contains many new scenes, as well as a sneak peek at the next book in Ryder and Jason's story—Reunited. It will be offered at a lower price for a limited time.


    6. This was a low-angst, fluffy, sweet confection. With really, really hot sex scenes. In fact, I was surprised by how, ahem, hot they were. What can I say? This story just made me happy.Ryder and Jason are two relatable characters, and Stevens does well engaging the reader with POV from both. I loved the juxtaposition of Jason's supportive family with Ryder's truly cold-ass-bitch mother. I'm telling you now Ryder's mother is definitely a character that you'll love to hate. The narration for the st [...]


    7. This one is getting rave reviews and top of the best selling gay romance list in . There are dogs so of course I can't resist. However I am disappointed as it did not work for me. This is the writer’s debut but I have read better writing from first releases. As for the characters and plot, maybe I could like it if I am new to the MM genre. But after so many MM romances later, this one is just meh. Nothing memorable about it. Both plot line and all the characters are very formulaic, just a mixt [...]



    8. *** It isn't just the sex for Jason - it's Ryder - the man himself. No one else has ever made him feel like this ! *** Ryder, a lawyer, is alone in the world, except for his dog, Pearl, and best friends, Emily and Connor.They run an animal rescue charity. Ryder's folks shunned him and he tries to secretly see his brother, Landon. Jason owns a construction company with his brother Liam. They are successful, hard working, and he calls the rescue for help when they find sick animals in a vacant bui [...]


    9. This book was so good. From the time Ryder and Jason met the chemistry was great and I loved them together. They were extra hot also. Add in the dogs and the dog rescue it was a hit! I also loved a lot of the secondary characters. They really added to the book. Ryder's mom was a piece of work and I'm being nice with my words ;-) It really was a great readI'm a fan of Felice Stevens great first book*****Update 9/6/16I read the revised edition and loved it just like the first edition. Love catchin [...]


    10. This was so cute. One of those I'll pick up again when I need a pick-me-up. I was already sold from the blurb. this was that perfect laid back kind of story that didn't make me feel like my teeth were gonna fall out from all the sweet.


    11. “There comes a point where you become tired of the loneliness and need a human touch, a caress to make you realize you still exist as a person.”Ryder is a lawyer. He used to work on his father firm until he confessed he's gay. Rejected by his family who thinks he just experiments with his sexuality and humiliated by another men who used him, he needs a fresh start. Ryder works now at "Rescue Me", a pit bull rescue organization with his friends Emily and Cooper. Jason has a construction site [...]


    12. CUDDLY CUTE and SWEET OMGPearl was so sweet and so faithful! AndRyder and Jason We're simply sexy and romantic! I ABSOLUTLEY fell in love with the concept of this book. I fell in love with both MCs as well as the side charactersd, that does include the pups. Gosh, those Pups .They ALL Were Totally ADORABLE!They won me over, and I am not really a dog-lover. I am a horse-lover.rtheless, I fell in love with those pups!The Book~I lovedat there was~No angstNo staggering flowNo cheating.I loved that I [...]


    13. Stand-alone HEA: (view spoiler)[ Yes(hide spoiler)]Cheating: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Trigger: (view spoiler)[ No (hide spoiler)]Felice Stevens is an author I discovered a few months ago withThe Arrangement.When I learnt she was re-releasing her first novel Rescued with a brand new cover, I was excited to read more of her characters.Ryder is a lawyer who's working with his two best friends at Rescue Me, a pit bull rescue association.Being gay only brought him disregard from his family, h [...]


    14. 3.5 stars. Good book, I'm a sucker for dog lovers especially Pit Bulls (I'm a Pitty owner and lover) but star off for the random cheesy, purple prose especially when it occurred during the sexy times. Completely ruined the de-virginization of the first time booty lovin. I liked that Jason didn't just fall into his first relationship with a man without taking the time to question or truly think about it which felt more realistic than most GFY books although I didn't like his way of doing it. Also [...]


    15. I liked the characters in this story, though I have to admit to rolling my eyes a few times with the plotting. When things were bad for Ryder and Jason, they were REALLY bad and some supporting characters seemed to be nasty out of proportion to me. Then in the last quarter of the book, all the nasties were handled one by one, tick, tick, tick in a REALLY sweet fashion, except for one who could not be redeemed.I guess what I'm saying is that the authors on my fan list write stories that I never n [...]


    16. This one was pretty good, even with the flowery prose and the insta-love. I really enjoyed the parts with the dogs and kinda wish the story had focused a bit more on the animal rescue aspect of the story. But overall, it was an enjoyable way to spend a couple hours.


    17. I'm really surprised by all the 5 stars. The story itself had a great setup and could've been executed well. I especially love the animal rights attorney angle. But then the MCs had to open their mouths during intimate times (and sometimes out of them) and this turned into one big cheesy, love fest. Spoilers aheadRyder and Jason were likeable. And there's nothing wrong with talk during smexy times. Dirty talk is usually hot. Cheesy heartfelt declarations during EVERY intimate time was just off p [...]


    18. This review is posted on Way Too Hot Books.I didn't realize how being with the right person could change your world and your outlook on everything, but you have to know you rescued me from myself. You've made everything in my life so much better from the moment I saw you.Adorable puppies, GFY mm romance, raving reviews of friends- I should have loved it, I know, but unfortunately, my feelings about this book are rather mixed. I had trouble even getting into the story at the beginning, mostly bec [...]


    19. This was so sugary sweet, my teeth hurt.I know I said I wanted something fluffy, but OMG this was a bit much, even for me.The guys get together around halfway through the book. There is also a lot of I love you going on. Fine by me, but it was a bit too much at times.There was unnecessary angst, which I hate, for all of 2 pages! And it didn’t contribute anything, so I would have been fiiiiine if it had been left out completely.This book has a nice GFY and centers a lot around the family and fr [...]


    20. ***3.5 Stars***Maybe not the smartest thing in the world to write a review about a book that you finished on a planeon the way to a vacationwhere you didn't read anythingr an entire weekd now don't remember much. Oops.Here's what my mind can put together. This story was sweet and very hot. However, it was a little too "insta" for me once the MC's got together. They moved at lightening speed with their relationship, especially Jason's coming out.I would have liked a little bit more meat to the st [...]


    21. 3.5 starsThis is my second book by Felice Stevens and I really enjoyed this sweet, feel good romance. I thought Jason and Ryder had great chemistry and I really felt for Ryder's situation. Plenty of family drama, loving friends, bad exes and, for you dog lovers, cute rescued pups, kept the story moving along to a HEA for all involved. The only minor issues I had with the story were the time jumps early on when the men were getting to know each other as friends and Jason's almost too easy accepta [...]


    22. Wow, this one was steamy. I mean, I expected the fluff (it's a novel about rescue and dogs) but the extremeley descriptive sexy times, not so much. I had a lot of highlights for this book, which usually means it was really good and cute and poetic, or it was really, painfully bad. This has to be the cutest, fluffiest book I've read in a long time.Ryder was this passionate, caring person who just wanted to rescue dogs and share his life with someone he loved. His history in choosing the wrong peo [...]


    23. There is, in my mind, nothing better than reading an author's debut novel. Getting the opportunity to hear a new voice is a very exciting thing. I'm thrilled to be able to say that Felice Stevens caught my attention within just a few pages. I'm not talking about the story arc, I'm talking about the writing, the ebb and flow of her words, the syntax, and the dialogue. It was immediately apparent, to me, that I was going to enjoy this maiden voyage.I absolutely adored Ryder from the moment he appe [...]


    24. I needed something light in my life right now, so I read this. I loved it. So sweet. There were a couple of things I didn't buy, but it didn't take away from the overall enjoyment of the story. What? Well, it's here in the spoiler: (view spoiler)[So, Ryder didn't try and talk to his dad just his mom? Why not confront his dad like Jason did. Liam's breakdown in the bar. While nice to see, I didn't see him as the type to fall down crying in the middle of the bar baring his soul.(hide spoiler)]Ther [...]


    25. My 2nd edition read.This was better because of some additional scenes into the storyWell I'm really into sweet fluffy story this time. And Ryder and Jason were just fulfilled my needs for some sweets.I loved how they're met, and I loved how protective Jason when it comes to Ry. Their relationship is almost perfect. The story is about Ry's issues with his family and Jason with his coming out to his family after so many years dating a horrible woman.After he met Ry, everything went to one directio [...]


    26. I liked this story a lot and it's my first read by this author. I'll definitely be reading more. The MC's were great together and I loved what the dogs brought to the story. The author did a great job of showing, so I really didn't need to be 'told' so much. It made it seem like some of the conversations were trying too hard and they didn't need to because the setups were done really well and I would have completely understood where they guys were coming from without them.


    27. What a lovely story, well, apart from the mother from hell it was just perfect.Any sequels? Because I would love to read more about the Bar owner. He really needs a happy ending that poor guy.



    28. I was lucky enough to have this book as reading material on a lengthy flight home, and boy did it keep me entertained! I was hooked from the very first paragraph, which actually made me laugh out loud. Loved both the MCs - Ryder and Jason are sexy, bright and fun. I loved all the other characters (friends and family, pit bulls). Like any m/m love story, you get the sex scenes and because you do have a character that is newly gay, you do get some of the first time sex/love talk, which is fun, sli [...]
