    Submerging myself into the world that is created by the fabulous writing duo Melanie Shawn, is the best kind of escape reading to me. I could even call it therapy, in the form you get when you hang out with you dear friends. I have experienced this with each new series they have written, and Valentine Bay is no exception to that. Genevieve Rollins and Gavin Valentine's love story has a unique handle to it, with their casual, secret sexy benefits they have been serving each other with for over a decade. They know each other, in bed and out of it, but as Gavin's life is changing forever, they have to figure out the new frame to their relations with each other, as soon as Gavin is ready to confess what is happening and why his life is changing. Because Genevieve and Gavin have the intimate knowledge of each other, the love scenes between them take the heat level to a completely new dial of smoking hot. It is through those most vulnerable and delicate private moments, where the development of the characters and the relationship is so cleverly underlined and advanced. Oh, it is not all just sizzling hot encounters that heat up the pages of this tale. There is also the banter and repartee of the brothers and friends, the Grandma Valentine that knows all and sees all, and the curious townfolks who are not afraid to meddle into people's affairs, no matter how hard they work to keep things secret. The health issues Gavin is facing, his struggle to accept it, and most of all, his scramble to tell his loved ones of the matter, not only bring depth and a dash of seriousness to the story, so skillfully and delicately delivers some of the best situational comics that made me give a laugh. From scorching hot love scenes to the family dynamics and small-town quirks, Rescuing His Heart delivers smiles, laughter, and swooning sighs in one vastly entertaining tale that was easy to get lost in, and forget that the rest of the world even exist as it smoothly flew off the pages. A delightfully ravishing, ever so sexy tale of love and new chapters in life. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

    Friends With Benefits

    A friends with benefits is all Gen and Gavin wanted, until Gavin has returned home after being discharged from the military. They have kept their relationship a secret for many years, now they need to decide if there is more to their relationship than the casual hook ups. I really enjoyed this sexy read, great chemistry between Gavin and Gen. Loved the relationship that Gavin has with his brothers, they are all very close. They were not afraid of calling Gavin out on his secret of why he was discharged from the military. Looking forward to the next Valentine brother story.

    A great addition to the Valentine Bay series!

    **I received an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Melanie Shawn has taken us on another great trip to Valentine Bay! Genevieve Rollins is an event planner, who not only enjoys her job, but is insanely good at it. For the past 15 years, she's lived in her hometown of Valentine Bay and when her friend, Gavin Valentine, would come home on leave from his job as a fighter pilot they engaged in a friends with benefits relationship. One that they kept well under wraps at Gen's request. Gavin has recently returned to Valentine Bay with the intention to stay this time, but not because it is his first choice. He's recently been given a diagnosis that will ground him from here on out and he's still processing this newest development. Being a very private person who keeps his emotions close to the vest, Gavin is struggling with letting anyone in on his diagnosis, including his family and Gen. When Gen and Gavin reconnect once he's back home, it's clear to both of them that they have stronger feelings than either of them anticipated, or have allowed themselves to recognize in the past, but will Gavin's secret end up causing them to walk away from the arrangement they've had for so long, or will he realize he needs to lean on those who love him most? I enjoyed this story, but I will say that it wore on me a bit how close to the vest both Gavin and Gen played things. His need to keep his diagnosis to himself and her need to keep their relationship a secret felt like it was never going to end, but once it finally did, I felt like their family and friends - elated they finally came clean with everyone. Another great addition to the Valentine Bay series. Looking forward to the next one!

    Wonderful Story

    WOW!!! Oh WOW!! I don’t know how the amazing duo of Melanie Shawn is able to keep writing better, improved, and a sexier story than their last book, but they did it with the second book in their Valentine Bay series, Rescuing His Heart, which I just loved. Genevieve and Gavin have been hooking up since high school. It’s always been a casual, no-strings attached fling since they were only together when Gavin was home on leave. Now that Gavin was home for good, Genevieve did not know what to do. She enjoyed being with him but she didn’t think she had any deep feelings for him. Gavin wasn’t sure what to make of his future. He was diagnosed with a medical condition that meant he could no longer fly; they the reason he was home and out of the service. Being a loner, Gavin struggled to open himself up to his family and Genevieve, explaining why he was home. Genevieve finds that deep down she truly has feelings for Gavin, wants to be there for him, and help him find a future he can live with. These two were amazing and perfect for each other. They had off the charts chemistry and everyone could see the electric sparks they shared. How Genevieve and Gavin could think no one in their small town knew about their fling was crazy. I enjoyed following Genevieve’s journey to discovering her true feelings along with her stalking Gavin, trying to find out what was wrong. Grandmother Valentine made an appearance, with her Adonis-like caretaker, and added layers of humor and love to this story. Melanie Shawn wrote a wonderfully emotional and moving story filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I highly recommend this book to other readers and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Valentine Bay series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Love Gavin and Gen

    Rescuing His Heart was a great book. It was emotional at times yet still funny and sexy. Gavin’s discharge leaves him coming home to deal with his medical diagnoses. Feeling like everything he’s ever wanted gone, he seeks comfort in the one person that has always had his heart. Problem is, their “thing” is to sleep together while he’s in town then not think about each other the rest of the time. Can Gavin make Genevieve (Gen) see that there are feelings between them that neither has ever wanted to admit to? Can he show Gen that they are the perfect couple? And more importantly, can he live happily knowing he can never fly again? Gen has been sleeping with Gavin for many years now without her friends or anyone else knowing about it. It was a hook up while he was in town kind of thing, so she never wanted to let anyone else know about them. What happens when Gavin is home to stay and Gen must confront her feelings for Gavin? Will Gen finally be ready to tell the world that her and Gavin are a couple, or will she want to forever keep their relationship a secret? Fall in love with Gavin and Genevieve. I did!
