Saviour (Saviour #1) by Lesley Jones


Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Book 1 of 2
Heat Level: HOT

Lauren has decided her marriage is over, but has yet to tell Jay, her abusive husband of the past twenty five years. On a night out with girlfriends, she has a few drinks and musters the courage to shamefully come clean over the abuse she has suffered over the years.
Gabriel joins his brothers for a friday night drink at a local bar, thirty five, good looking and single after a very brief, failed marriage, all he is ever on the lookout for is a hook up….Even names aren’t important to him…Straight sex, no complications.
Watch as their worlds collide, neither of them prepared for the effect each will have on the other. The chemistry is instant and overwhelming and has the possibility to destroy them but will the mind blowing sex be enough to keep them together and overcome each of their pasts?
Their story is sometimes harrowing and heartbreaking and touches on subjects all too often avoided. Don’t expect a hearts and flowers romance read, although that is there too, along with some very funny moments.

♦♦♦ My Thoughts ♦♦♦

I have loved this author since I read The Story of Us. She did not disappoint with Saviour. This book was very fast paced, just the right amount of angst and sexy times. A few people have commented that they have found Lauren’s character annoying because she has so much self doubt and insecurities. Well hello! She is a middle aged woman coming out of 26 year marriage to an abusive man with hardly a dime to her name and she is now dating a young, sexy, wealthy man. Of course she is insecure! I think the book would have been unrealistic otherwise.

What I adored was how much Gabe loved her and he was constantly reassuring her of how much he loved her and allowing her to gain confidence. As always I loved the signature sarcastic brit humor that this author infuses into her stories. Very excited to read book 2.
