This book had been on my Kindle since its release earlier in the year so I jumped at the chance to read it for the blog tour. And what a ride! This book is fast-paced, deals with a very serious storyline but is very funny and very dirty all at the same time. I absolutely loved the slightly-older-woman/younger man story. It was very refreshing to have a heroine who wasn’t a 21 year old virgin. Lauren has been in a long-term marriage and has children. She is faced with a very tough choice but ultimately must make some tough decisions in order to save herself from further harm. Some of the violence in Saviour was a little disturbing and graphic, but it does form an essential part of this story.
The sex scenes between Gabriel and Lauren are SCORCHING hot and the author has a real talent for writing an erotic story. The writing style is a little different from other books I have read, it is very fast paced and almost forms a stream-of-consciouness. But I loved the steamy chemistry between Gabriel and Lauren and the fact that Lauren becomes stronger and more self-assured over the course of this story. Overall a good, steamy, funny and rowdy story from Lesley Jones.
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.
