Dangerous Rescue (TAKEBACK) Paperback – October 26, 2021
Enhance your purchase
I’d repeated the lie so many times I’d almost convinced myself it was the truth.
Our friendship was accidental. A lost phone, a string of text messages that led to a once-a-year birthday text. The real trouble started when we upped the game and called each other. Those phone calls strengthened our connection and solidified our bond. Fourteen years later I was in love with a man who knew me down to the deepest depths of my soul—but I’d never seen him, not even a picture. That was our deal; no last names, no pictures, and the promise to never internet search the other.
I upheld that promise.
River did not.
I was not prepared for the man who showed up at my bookstore. River Kent was tall—so damn tall, good-looking, so damn hot he took my breath, crystal blue eyes, so damn captivating I couldn’t look away. But mostly he was a bossy, straightforward, tell-no-lies type of man. Which didn’t work for me since I’d been lying through my teeth for years denying my true feelings.
More than that, I was not prepared to face River months after my sister had been murdered. I wasn’t ready to deal with the knowledge that she was gone and in the weeks leading up to her death I’d turned my back on her. The guilt was eating at me.
River wasn’t prepared to take no for an answer.
Chaos and confusion had taken over my life. And to make matters worse, I found myself in the middle of a horrific child trafficking case. Okay, to be fair, I didn’t find myself there, I’d purposefully inserted myself into the TAKEBACK investigation. And since I’d volunteered to go undercover, River did more than insert himself—he took over and declared himself my protector.
Did I mention I was madly, deeply in love with him? Did I mention he was the man of my dreams? Did I mention River thought going undercover was dangerous, crazy, and not a good idea? Turns out River was right and just when all of my wildest dreams had come true they were torn away and I was left in shambles.

An AMAZING read with steam, some suspense, humour, tissues needed moments, and great characters. I LOVED these two, River’s commitment, no shying away from his feelings and intentions and his protective alpha ways. Letty was sassy, smart, and emotionally broken until River gets through to her. The story flowed beautifully and I couldn’t stop once I started. Heartbreaking and heartfelt moments that needed tissues, banter that made you smile and laugh, and protective growly alpha men all around and in a bit of suspense…YES PLEASE!!!
What follows is a little different from your usual Edwards romance in the sense that these two knew one another on a cellular level aside from seeing each other face to face. There wasn't any of the push and pull that you sometimes get in these books because they both loved each other full stop without question. Now that isn't to say that they didn't have issues.
Letty has been having a hard time dealing with the aftermath of her sister's actions and has pulled away from everyone because of her mixed feelings surrounding Kiki. Which you get, then you get the fact that there is the story of children being sold as a side story that she can't help but get involved. River is loving and suportive while giving Letty some hard truths that she needs to hear and she acknowledge that. I adored these two, and the fact that River is pulled into the fold because everyone already "knew" him even though he was never physically with them.
One thing that I LOVE about this book is the fact that both of these characters were it for each other. Yes they had past relationships, but once their feelings changed (at different moments) they were all in even in the distance. There is the natural teaser into the next Takeback book with Reese and Sadie and I can't wait to see what Riley Edwards has in store for these two!

I love the Kent family and like 99.9% of Riley’s readers I’m counting down the days till Echo gets his story (and the little of Echo I saw in this book totally didn’t change my mind at all) but am more than happy to meander through the stories of the rest of the extended family (TC!) on the journey and meet the strong, independent women who will knock them on their behinds along the way.
Letty is no slacker in this regard with a flair for drama (that River handles wonderfully) a strong sense of self and so much love for all her family, extended and otherwise. River quite rightly recognises she is one of a kind and locks her down early in the story, with little in the way of angst to come once the initial meet cute passes.
I liked how the story linked the family in at the beginning and end, and the brothers pretty much bullied River into making his move, though he stayed true and didn’t even look at a photo of her.
This storyline totally captured my imagination when it was mistakenly/originally mooted as the trope for Dangerous Love and it totally delivered. The anticipation, the build up, the “knowing” of each other despite having never met was so well portrayed in this story. I adored how they didn’t have to do the learning of each other’s quirks and instead the story focused on them adjusting to each other as a couple, the back story with Kiki and how Letty recovered and dealt with her feelings on this and also the child endangerment storyline (mild trigger warming here I think!)
Altogether this was pulled out of the bag and Riley delivered again a superb unputdownable book that I was thrilled to start and gutted to finish.
Also…Is Mrs S anyone else’s kind of favourite side character EVER!!!
This is a typical Riley Edwards story with lots of action, romance and great characterisation, I loved it.
In this one, River and Letty rule the pages, and I swear River sounds delicious (even more than usual). It really does help if you’ve read the first in the series to understand Letry’s pain.
Letty is an absolute star - both Whitty and sassy
They never met....
6 years of foreplay......
Over the phone.
....and then they meet!
