Saving AlexanderSaving Alexander by Susan Mac Nicol

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

Punishing himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.

Famous author though he may be, Alexander Montgomery is not someone you take home to meet Mother. Seriously flawed, damaged by a horrific past, he’s trying hard to claw his way back to normality. But how can anyone respect what he truly is? His therapy involves regular sessions at Study in Scarlet, an exclusive S&M club.

Then comes Sage. Tall, with black hair and blue eyes, an up-and-coming actor with impossible charm and boy-next-door good looks, he’s the perfect choice to play the leading man in a TV adaptation of Alex’s last best-seller. Even more, he is a man you introduce to your family. Which Alex would do—if he weren’t taken by another man who offers the punishments Alex prays will wipe away the past and make him the person he wants to be. Yet, perhaps there is another path to redemption. If only the solution would reach out and touch him.

So what did I think?

It feels a little strange to be saying how much I loved a book about a man punishing himself for the sins of others but I so much enjoyed this story! Susan Mac Nicol tells a wonderful tale as she pairs a very broken man with the one man who can deliver him a future.

It was heartbreaking to read of Alexander’s torment, of his traumatic past and the way he viewed himself due to the actions of others.“I’m so scared I’ll never be able to have a proper relationship, that I’ll always be on my own because no one wants damaged goods.” As well as seeing a professional psychologist, he chooses to punish himself physically during regular S&M sessions with Eric. These ‘therapy’ sessions are violent and savage and provide a direct contrast to the physical relationship with Alex shares with Sage.

Sage is gorgeous. He is also caring and very compassionate. He is so accepting of Alex’s situation, seeing the man behind the emotional and physical scars. He does make the perfect saviour.

Jealousy does play a role in the story as Sage battles with Alex’s dependency on Eric and there are ramifications as a result of Alex’s changing needs.

The plot is unique with the romance between Alex and Sage paralleling Alex’s involvement with Eric, while events occur putting lives at risk, all set against a backdrop of a TV series film set.

From my heartbreak for Alex, my pure hatred of Eric and my admiration and respect for Sage, this was an emotional journey. Highly recommended!

The Blurb…

After two years, Matthew Langer is still getting over the death of a loved one. He’s steered clear of serious relationships, but when he meets the irascible, dirty mouthed and tempestuous Shane Templar that decision has never been harder. Shane is sexy, warm and funny, and Matthew finds himself trying like hell not to care about him. Especially when Shane, with his quick wit and hacking skills, is quick to stand up for justice and avenge wrongs. Then Shane strikes at the wrong target, and Matthew realises just how far gone he already is. At the threat of losing for good yet another man who’s broken through his armour, Matthew finds his heart stripped bare. He must face the demons of his soul or a future without love.

So what did I think?

This is a story that perfectly blends drama and romance and keeps the action going at a fairly rapid pace! The relationship is full of ups and downs – immense passion interspersed with arguments and fall-outs – and the drama keeps on coming – assaults, computer hacking, threats, computer hacking…

We are introduced to Shane while he is providing an escort service to David. They have met a couple of times before but only for an escort service without any sex (Shane is picky with who he gets involved with). But this changes and they end up in a hotel room together. After their encounter, David receives a phone call from his father and is obviously very fearful and upset. David is the son of a wealthy business man who is a homophobic jerk and threatens David.

After David leaves, Shane is concerned for him and tries to contact him without success, eventually finding out he is in the hospital. My question is why Shane was so concerned about David after what had happened between them. I don’t think this was fully explained or else Shane must be a very accepting/forgiving man! He visits the hospital and meets Matthew, David’s father’s lawyer. This is the start of a relationship between Shane and Matthew.

Shane is a little bit wild and gets up to some mischief that gets him into some trouble. But his heart is really in the right place and he falls hard for Matthew. Matthew is more controlled with tragedy in his past. He finds it hard to put himself out there and open his heart.

Together these men are wonderful and they certainly heat things up between the sheets (and everywhere else!). The sex scenes threatened to be a little too many but then I decided I enjoyed them so much that they suited the story perfectly!

There is much to be resolved in the story – David’s father’ actions and treats, Shane’s problems with his family, Matthew coming to terms with his own personal tragedy and finally Shane and Matthew trusting each other enough to love. It is an emotional journey with some really sweet and tender moments.

“Babe, you call me all upset and say you need me. I would have run twice the distance just to get here for you, to hear you say that.” Shane to Matthew.

“You drive me crazy. You’re bloody cheeky, you’re a maverick, and you never bloody listen to anyone. You do what you think is best, all the time. You also care so much about people – it’s what I love about you. I love the way you smell, the way you look, the way you make me feel.” Matthew to Shane

Of course I loved to see Matthew finally proclaiming his love but I think my other favourite part was Shane’s father’s response to seeing him with Matthew. “God, you two are incredible together,” he whispered, his face pale. “How could I ever think this wasn’t right?”

So all in all, a great story with emotional warmth, wonderful leading men and lots of interesting drama!
