About the Book

Paula Reynolds is looking for a new job, a new home, a new everything—except for love. Determined not to repeat old mistakes, she’s staying away from romance. She never counted on falling for handsome firefighter Clint Donatelli. Clint is used to saving lives, but with the beautiful Paula, he faces a challenge. Getting to know her is a daunting task, especially since he’s just as wary of relationships. When he learns a stunning secret from her past, he must choose—to live the way he’s always lived, or trust in a new love.

My Review

Paula Reynolds and Clint Donatelli meet at the wedding of mutual friends. Paula is new in town and they feel a mutual attraction which leads to a friendship but they’re both wary of a new relationship because of their pasts. Paula has a terrible past and Clint has been burned by an ex, but when they fall for each other, can they work through their pasts to have a life together?

Gail Gaymer Martin’s writing flows well and is easy to read. I read this book pretty quickly.

This is a sweet love story but for some reason I couldn’t get into the characters or get invested in their story. The characters are believable. Paula’s back and forth emotions were a bit annoying but so are mine sometimes. This is one of those books that was a good enough read but it won’t stick with me like some do.

I do think if you like sweet, run-of-the-mill inspirational romances, you should like Rescued by the Firefighter.
