This series is a must read if you want a hot, romantic book boyfriend and a spicy read ...
Resolution starts off where Saviour ended and completes this series of books. To say that you feel emotion and love for the characters is undeniable. The author takes you on a roller coaster ride and has you falling in love with the strong, yet damaged Lauren and the hot, sex on legs Gabriel. He really is her Saviour and he is hers. This book is a great read in that you feel like you are right there and part of it, which is how a master story teller is able to grab you and drag you right into the pages of the book. I laughed, cried and felt every emotion whilst reading this story.
I really fell more in love with Gabe during this book, he loves Lauren so much and with his damaged past its hard for him to accept that she loves him. With Lauren’s damaged past she feels the same way, she finds it hard to believe that Gabe could possibly want to be with her due to her age etc. They both have quite the temper and they both fire off often. Lauren doesn’t always make the best decisions and you tend to want to smack her, but at the same time you understand why she makes these mistakes.
I loved the side characters in this book also, Ava, Gabriel’s daughter plays quite a roll in this book and I really loved that interaction between her and Lauren. I also raised my eyebrows and laughed out loud at the toilet scenes, you have to read it to know what I am talking about.
Another thing I loved was that this was set in Australia and being from Australia I just loved the use of our expressions and language. Well done Lesley Jones for sticking with the Australian way of life.
Right, so what did I think? Well once again 5 golden stars for this book. The only criticism I could give would be that it ended and now I have a book hangover again .. thanks Lesley Jones, as if it wasn’t enough for me to have a giant hangover after Carnage, now I have two in the space of a weekend. Carnage is due out on 14th February 2014 - do yourself a favour and grab it immediately along with this series of books.
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. Lauren has once again been beaten and humiliated by her soon to be ex-Husband, Gabe has revealed he was sexually abused by his Step-Mother as a teenager, and Gabe’s ex is threatening to stop him seeing his daughter.
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.
