Alexander Holmes is the last of the Holmes brothers that
has yet to meet and marry the woman of his dreams.
Correction: he's already done that, and it turned out to
be his worst nightmare. The best thing to come out of his
failed marriage was his daughter, Jasmine. She is his
life and he's content to pore all of his love into her.
When a construction site accident forces Alex to take a
break from his business, around the same time that Jasmine
begins acting out at school, he decides to volunteer his
time and get more involved in his daughter's education
during his recuperation. He doesn't count on meeting
Renee Moore, the school's Special Projects Coordinator.
Sparks begin flying between Alex and Renee from their
first encounter over an uncooperative school copy
machine. Renee, carrying her own relationship battle
scars, isn't sure whether she can—or should—trust Alex.
Farrah Rochon's RESCUE ME is the third book in the Holmes
family trilogy, and for my money, the best of the three.
Even if this is your first book in the series, you'll come
away with a feel for a post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans
that the author clearly loves, and a whole new group of
friends in Alex, Eli, Toby, Mama Holmes and the rest of
the cast of characters. RESCUE ME brings the reader more
of Ms. Rochon's deft storytelling skills, including
another look at Margo Holmes, family matriarch who has
secrets of her own, while wrapping up the remaining
brother in a captivating story of love that goes beyond
past pain or blood ties.
His two younger brothers have both taken the plunge, and now
the entire Holmes clan has their sights set on him. But
Alexander Holmes is no fool for love. He’s been there, done
that, and all he has to show for it is a whole lot of scars
and one beautiful little girl. Unfortunately, his precious
angel has become a terror in the classroom, so Alex has no
choice but to trade in his tool belt for a text book.
And sometimes it needs a big shove…
When Renee Moore sees the new parent volunteer waging war
against the school copy machine, she can’t help admiring his
obvious…assets. After all, there’s nothing sexier than a
parent who’s involved—especially when he has a rock-solid
body and a voice that makes her weak in the knees. Even more
important, underneath that hot exterior is a man she knows
she can trust and respect. All she has to do is convince him
to give love a second chance.
