himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander
Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.
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
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.
Saving Alexander is a very sexy, very raw, and very emotional m/m love story with a thriller thrown in for good measure. As a fan of the m/m genre, I found the story to be very gripping and very satisfying in terms of the heat factor. I read a fair amount of m/m books and I generally find female authors to be a bit less gritty, but I will say the sex scenes in Saving Alexander did not disappoint! The heartbreaking description of Alex’s background, from which he tries to find some sort of healing through BDSM sessions, is balanced out nicely by the loving relationship he finds with Sage. There is a suspenseful storyline here along with the very erotic romance between Sage and Alex. The only minor drawback for me was that these two talked A LOT about their relationship and their feelings. But overall I really liked this book and found it to be incredibly well written and enjoyable! Definitely a must-read for any fan of m/m books.
