I am falling in love with Teri Fowler’s writing style. Even though Rescue Me was short, she has a talent for world building and pacing a story so that it feels like a complete picture.
Seth was an absolute dream man on paper. He is funny, charming, humble, and brave. He is also too perfectly drawn, too simple. I did feel the consummate Texas gentleman in the face of the condescending shrew from California dynamic was over played. I wish that Seth put the Texas gentleman away just once and told Maya off.
I am on the fence about Maya. I loved how independent and driven she was. There were no frills to her and she was upfront with Seth about his chances of winning the game and her heart. My issue with Maya was her ever present wishy-washy attitude toward Seth. There was a lack of respect for his feelings that I found to be unnerving. I completely understand her reticence to get involved with a contestant on a show that she is working on, but she continuously sought him out and initiated conversations that led her to contradict herself.
Overall, Rescue Me is a good short story, not her best, but it is still well written and has fantastic sex scenes. I suggest you read this story asap. I am looking forward to more by this author.
Part-time firefighter and full-time rancher Seth Coulter will do anything to save the family ranch. He applies to take part in a TV reality show featuring emergency service personnel in the hopes of winning the grand prize.
TV producer Maya Franklin is so jaded by years of living in LA that she can't quite believe Seth is as decent as he seems during his audition, so she rejects his application. The insane sexual chemistry between them leads her to his hotel room that night but a call from the studio, telling her they want Seth for the show, forces her to leave before anything can happen.
Seth and Maya are reunited on location and, this time, she's his boss. Despite her intention to keep him at arm's length, she underestimates Seth's determination to get what he wants, and what he wants is her!
