‘Rescue me’ is one of those books that you start reading and after a couple of chapters you realise that it’s an engaging plot with credible characters all in a well written package. So all you have to do is find a cozy place, sit back and enjoy it. I was glad I started it on a Friday and had the whole weekend to read it as I didn’t want to put it down.
This is a fantastic book, definitely one of the best lesbian mystery/thriller that I’ve read this year. For me, it is so good because it achieves a perfect balance in different aspects. For example, it has an equal amount of romance and action, both well developed in skillfully crafted plot and subplots. The thriller aspect of the book is action-packed, fast paced with twists and surprises that keeps you guessing and turning pages. On the other hand, there is a slow-burn romance building up slowly but progressively, heating up as the characters get more and more involved with each other. The love scenes are seriously hot but can also be tender and romantic. I found that Ms. Teichman has a great talent in describing a kiss, making it highly erotic and almost cinematographic in its depiction. As good as Melissa Brayden, my favourite lesbian romance author.
Overall, I couldn’t recommend this book more if you like a combination of thriller and romance in a story. Just a word of warning, some of the action scenes are a bit violent though it didn’t affect me much and I’m quite a sensitive person. Now go and read it!
