Saviour By Lesley Jones Review @LesleyKJones

Synopsis

BOOK 1 SAVIOUR…
Lauren has decided that her marriage is over, she has had enough of her husband’s abusive and unreasonable behaviour. After making this decision and resigning herself to the fact that she will now be middle aged and single, she embarks on a girl’s night out and spills her guts to her girlfriends about what she has endured, in secret all these years.
Gabriel joins his brothers for a drink at a local bar. He’s thirty five and very single. Good looks and a good job mean the ladies are generally lining up every night, which is just the way he likes it, straight sex, no complications.
Then their worlds collide, neither of them looking or thinking that what they need is each other but the chemistry is instant and overwhelming and has the possibility to consume and destroy them both. Despite her husband’s behaviour, Lauren is not a cheater and refuses to get involved with Gabe until she has moved out of her marital home and ended her marriage once and for all but events take a catastrophic turn and Gabe ends up coming to her rescue, becoming her Saviour and a relationship forms at lightning speed. Can they overcome both their pasts to survive the future, together? Is the amazing, mind blowing sex enough? Join Lauren and Gabriel on their emotional, funny, sexy and traumatic journey as they try to conquer the demons from their past and build a future together. Their story will make you laugh and it will make you cry and sometimes do both at the same time! This isn’t a hearts and flowers romance, it follows the story of two broken people, trying to find a way forward together after being let down in the worst possible ways. Saviour approaches a serious subject with realism, heart felt emotion and even humour.
Lauren has issues that will drive you insane and Gabe is lost, unsure of how to express what exactly it is that he’s feeling, making them both behave in ways that you will find somewhat frustrating…
BOOK 2 RESOLUTION…
Resolution picks up exactly where Saviour left us all hanging! Having left an abusive marriage at 45, Lauren can hardly believe that she has found Gabe, a 35 year old blonde buff sex god, their instant chemistry has convinced him that that he wants to change his serial shagging ways and to make what they have found permanent, he knows that he loves Lauren but relationships are a whole new concept to him and he doesn’t always get it right.
Lauren, still reeling from the abuse she has suffered at the hands of her ex-husband is not convinced that jumping straight into another marriage is the right thing for her, despite how much she loves Gabe, the sex is amazing, they have no problems there. With Gabe she is growing in confidence and trying things in the bedroom…and everywhere else… that she never even considered during her marriage but they have known each other for just 10 short weeks and already they have been through enough drama to last a lifetime.
Will Lauren listen to taunts from jealous exes and her own self-doubt; or will the love (and lust) Lauren has found in Gabe’s arms be enough for her to let go of her painful past to build a future with Gabe. Resolution is the conclusion of Gabe and Laurens story, it will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, with some steamy and erotic sex scenes, just to keep your pulse racing, like Saviour, some scenes are gut wrenching, it will have you laughing, crying and wanting to not only hug Gabe and Lauren but also wanting to shake some sense into them. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
Resolution is the final book in the Saviour Series

Review( I own this book, but have yet to get to book 2)

Saviour (Saviour, #1)Saviour by Lesley Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first saw this cover I just loved the image and one-clicked as I was going to IADU2014 in the Gold Coast – 8 months later and I have finally read it.

I enjoy Lesley Jone’s writing style, being a brit I get the humour and language.

This book is a story about two people who are an unlikely match, but find that they have a connection, and are willing to make it work even though they both have issues from their past relationships… its is often harrowing and heartbreaking and touches on subjects such as wife abuse, although there are some very funny moments.

Oh and don’t forget a cliff hanger! Oh how I hate those, but at least book 2 is available, I sure hope that Gabe and Lauren have their HEA.

I enjoy Lesley’s stories, they are quite real and often leave you in a mess on the floor hugging your e-reader, but I still often think of these stories months later, and that is a sign of a good Author, as her story has struck a cord within me.

PS if you haven’t read Carnage #1 and #2 yet – what are you waiting for!!! They are the reason I will be reading everything Lesley has written.

Author Bio

I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne, Australia. It’s a whole new way of life for us down here, we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.
As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football…The round ball version.  I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work. I am also rather partial to a glass… or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.
