    "Nicholas Sparks should always be an instant buy. The Rescue is a classic tale about a firefighter that falls in love. This is that same classic that probably inspired so many other novels and movies that run on the same premise as this book."

    "The book itself is well written enough to be entertaining, yet there are tons of even better and more entertaining books with main characters as police men or firefighters that I can highly recommend. When it comes to choosing which are the best, this book maybe subpar, but still this is definitely worth looking in to."

    "Reading this mystery fiction was simply laborious. I don't think I should honestly give it a review if I stopped a third of the way through reading it. The characters are paper-thin, the plot is rehashed. I looked up the end of the book right after and saw my prediction - my OBVIOUS prediction - of the finale was exactly what happened. If I can figure out what happens so easily, why is the author getting paid?"

    "This summer, I'd planned to celebrate my eighteenth birthday in Europe with my fellow Manhattanites--Taddy Brill, Blake Morgan, and Vive Farnworth--until I caught my boyfriend screwing my mother. According to the police report, this vomit-inducing incident happened around the same time I'd supposedly blown-up my mother's penthouse. Like I'm walking around Soho with a stick of dynamite in my Louis Vuitton purse--not! Now, my besties and I are in jail. Officer Ford Gotti, the Harley-wheelin' biker cop who arrested us, keeps sticking his perfectly-sculpted nose into my case. His inked body is jacked like a superhero, and he says I can trust him. He wants me to fess up. I won't. Not again. Why should I? My friends and I had a previous stint in juvie that nearly destroyed us. I gotta protect them and keep my mouth shut. Right? --Lex Easton, women's studies major, motorcycle enthusiast, and virgin."
