This was a great addition to the Second Chance series with Donovan finding his happily ever after with Sofie. Seven years previously he had taken her virginity then panicked and left town. After being abused by his father all his life he did not know how to act when someone showed him love. He never forgot her and even got a matching infinity tattoo to hers to remember her by. He also decided he could not have sex with anyone but her so he abstained for seven years. As soon as he saw her again he wants her and she cannot resist her feelings for him. When his Aunt Gertrude dies and leaves him Evergreen Cove mansion and cash inheritance he has to come back to fix it up to sell it to his friend Allessandre. He is going to make it a bed and breakfast after it is cleaned up and emptied out. This is where he grew up and was beaten and burned by his father until the day he left at eighteen after the incident with Sofie in the mansions library couch. After conferring with the lawyer about his aunt's will she signed a contract with an event planner to hold a fund raiser for a house for abused children at the mansion. Donovan goes to talk to the event planner to see if he can break this contract and the event planner is Sofie Martin. The very same girl that showed him love seven years ago that terrified him because no one had ever shown him any love before and he ran away from her. That event damaged Sofie also seven years ago because he was so mean to her and she slapped him for insulting her. How will they ever be able to work together and make this event a success for these kids. This story shows you that anything is possible when you are given a redo to make things right.Read more ›

Jessica Lemmon has quickly become a favorite author of mine. Sitting down with one of her titles is like soothing away any worries. You're able to escape in the richness of her prose consumed by the beauty of her story. Rescuing the Bad Boy is a feel good contemporary romance told from the third person POV. It's the kind of love story that makes readers feel everything for the characters. Her recipe of hot, brooding, alpha male coupled with a strong, fiery female thrust together after seven years of not seeing each other forced to work together for a charity that touches both of them well let's just say the story will make you smile, laugh, and just feel really good - romance perfection.

As the second book in the Second Chance series it can definitely be read as a stand alone since the two main characters are different. I wouldn't personally recommend it because book one is equally as awesome and on my must read list. The star of this show this bad boy, Donovan Pate, has been gone from Evergreen Cove for 7 years after a tumultuous and tragic upbringing. His escape meant from the Cove his only refuge in a bleak life no matter the cost. Sofie Martin has been living with his ghost in a sense for those same 7 years. His sacrifice of departure was Sofie whose proverbial scars never fully healed. When Donovan returns to the cove these old hurts are unwrapped from their tightly sealed bandaging as the two navigate the still present, extremely fiery passion between them. Lemmon writes their banter, their chemistry, and their vulnerabilities with such precision you feel all of their emotions.

This author excels at romance story telling. Her story structure remained solid throughout the book never lingering on unnecessary details.

Rescuing the Bad Boy is a wonderful love story of forgiveness and healing. Donovan has been through hell and thinks he doesn't deserve love from anyone not even friends. He's caring and a protective alpha hottie mctottie, an amazing leading man that's a little broken. Sofie is his complete opposite and despite Donovan breaking her heart years before she never lets it get her down. She's independent and a business woman that knows what she wants. It was very easy to get emotionally attached to both leading characters to the point of being on the edge of my seat til the last page. Rescuing the Bad Boy is a sweet, emotional story of love and redemption.

I really really loved and enjoyed this one. I thought everything about this book was great and I just found nothing wrong with the characters or the story line. I really loved the character of Donovan and his story. I just thought he was an incredible character and his story just touched my heart. This is a really great series. One that you can definitly not go wrong with. Really can't wait for Connors story!

Loved! This! Book! The story is incredible and the writing is spectacular! Rarely can an author make me loathe a character so quickly and have me love him so deeply at the end. Donovan who appears to be the baddest of bad boys turns out to be one of the most loving and caring men around. Now Sofie just needs him to believe it. This is a great read and everyone needs it on the must read list. I highly recommend it.
