In this steamy, intensely erotic debut, Megan Clark delivers a novel that is as thought-provoking as it is sexy and proves herself a talent to watch.

Format: Paperback
When I first read this book, I felt the frustration of the protagonist, Danielle, towards Natasha, another significant character and main love interest. I didn't understand how Natasha could be so free and openly sexual with a complete stanger, and then trip out over an encounter with Danielle.

I thought about it for days, then it occurred to me that Danielle never quite understood Natasha either. In the novel, she struggles to understand, but it is impossible because one day Natasha is cold, the next day warm. Natasha is the epitome of mixed messages.

Although I wanted Danielle to have an epiphany, I realize that real life isn't always that way. Sometimes it takes years to understand a person or situation. Sometimes we never understand, but we have to move on anyways. That is how this novel is true to life.

Overall, the novel was very entertaining, and Megan's style of writing is simple and refreshing. I read it in one night. I am anxiously awaiting her next novel.

Rescue Me by Meagan Clark is simply amazing! So full of incredible, life lessons that involves the heart, the body, and the soul and the lengths we as humans will try to go through to rid the emptiness we feel inside. Danielle is a rich, thought provoking character you really get to taste and love. And although she's lost her way in life, crossing over the line of society's views of conventional love by falling for another woman, she YEARNS to be rescued, NEEDS to be rescued, and DESERVES to be rescued. No matter the cost. Of course, Danielle realizes, as all great characters do, that only she has the ability to rescue herself and that life is about exposing one's heart, body and soul not only to the world, but also to one's self.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rescue Me is a poetic, provocative and richly woven travelogue of a young woman's journey toward self-discovery. The author Megan Clark dares to be dangerously honest in her protagonist Danielle's simultaneous innocence and sophistication, which utterly captivates. There is something in Clark's heroine that all women can identify as a part of themselves. Literary eroticism rarely reaches this level of consciousness.

I felt like I was with Danielle on her journey. Kudos to Danielle for coming out of her shell and exploring what life has to offer her. Once I started I couldn't put it down. Read it in one evening. Megan Clark draws you in and you never want to come out! Can hardly wait for her next book!!

Format: Paperback
I was captivated with the entertaining story line, and I especially enjoyed the vivid descriptions of cities in Europe throughout the entire manuscript. It was obvious that Megan was able to describe these areas in Europe so vividly and accurately because of her own experience visiting these places herself. It was refreshing to read a novel with such attention to detail. I couldn't put this book down, and finished it in 2 days. Very steamy and a good read.

I found myself completely engrossed in Megan Clark's first novel, Rescue Me. She is truly an author to add to your "Favorite Author" list. Danielle, a young woman seeking her true identity through sexual fulfilment and new experiences, is someone with whom all women can relate -- someone we might have wished we ourselves had been at Danielle's young age. I look forward to Megan Clark's next book!

Format: Paperback
As a man reading an erotic novel one would think that this man should just pick up a Penthouse letters, He must be a pervert, etc... Classifying this book as an erotic novel wouldn't do the book justice. Since it was written in a woman's point of view I can delve into a woman's mind as she travels across Europe and meets various men and women. The author paints a good picture of a real complex individual and her struggles to find herself. As a man I see what one woman thinks about a certain sexual escapade... what she thinks about a boring relationship.... lustful one... and a lasting one. Through the character one woman's point of view about sexual relationsips is truly exposed. Being erotic is definitely not just the lustful escapades you might find in something like Penthouse letters. This book helps illustrate that being erotic is something complex and sexual.

The descriptions of travels through Europe and sexual escapades make it an interesting read. However, the book is not limited to just that it makes you think and analyze your own relationships. For a man in his young 20s I think it speaks to me and my life and current relationships. To me sometimes having a lasting relationship isn't what is meant to be, the person you're with isn't the one. Is there such a thing? I may be naive but I think you know when you meet the one. I've fallen in love and got my heart broken and I've broken hearts.... and a relationship when I feel a girl isn't the one I push them away. Despite how good things are in the relationship.... the person's qualites, sex, etc.. As you can see it is a thought provoking novel in many ways- woman's perspective about certain sexual relationsips, womans thoughts, done in a new style which makes me eager to read the next book.

Format: Paperback
Some artists hate to categorize their work into a little box, because to label things is to limit them. Megan Clark's book is original. You can call it erotic, if you like, but personally, I just have to say it's an interesting book. It's not like cotton candy that dissolves in your mouth once you eat it. This book is the type that leaves you anxious to read more of her work. After reading "Rescue Me", I'm hooked on Megan Clark's writing. I'm looking forward to reading her next novel.

I think the "Rescue Me" starts off a little too quickly, There are a couple places where it felt to me like a movie with quick edits that place characters in places where I'm not quite sure how they got there or why. But soon I felt myself settling in with the journey, and once I did, I couldn't put the book down. I'm sure Megan will continue to develop her talent as a writer. She's got style! If I had to categorize Megan Clark's book, I wouldn't call it "An Erotic Novel". I would instead call it a "Work of Art that's Also Erotic", or maybe I'd categorize it as a novel about "Philosophy, Travel,Poetry and Sensual Relationships". (Does Amazon.com have a radio button for that selection?)
