Lesley Jones does it again with Resolution, book 2 of her Saviour Series

Title: Resolution
Author: Lesley Jones
Genre: Erotica

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 every where 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.

I read Saviour, Lesley Jones' first installment of her two part series last month.  I hadn't heard of Lesley or this book so I didn't really have any expectations other than my usual hopes for a good story-with just the right amount of romance, strong characters and the possibility of a scrumptious new book boyfriend to add to my long list of fictional, swoon-worthy men.

Fortunately for me Resolution, the sequel to Saviour was waiting for me in my inbox.  I was so anxious to start reading; I had my Kindle app opened to page one as I dried my hair and got ready for work that morning.

As I said, I really didn't have too many expectations when I got started with Saviour; curious whether Lesley would she be able to captivate me in Resolution as she previously had.  I've found so many times before the anticipation for a sequel to a series can be spot on or so, so very wrong!  I read on my lunch break, when I got home from work, as dinner was cooking, before bed and between Saturday afternoon errands.

Lesley has this ability to develop characters with such dimension; I clung to every word I read.  Gabriel secured his rank on my previously mentioned list- not only for his gorgeous body in a three piece designer suit or in his board shorts or even when he was out of them.  He was sensitive, smart, sexy, loving, hard-working and made his family and their needs his priority.  Lauren immediately had a place in my heart for her ability to show confidence on the outside; while on the inside feelings of uncertainty, insecurity, shame and guilt were in constant battle with her need to love and be loved, provide stability for her children and mend her broken husband- or at the very least, find the man she thought he once was.  Both Gabriel and Lauren found their lives intertwined with years of secrets that both had presumably tucked away.

 At no point in this book did the story drag on.  I wasn’t left with more questions than answers at any point either.  I was sad, excited, and anxious, in love, devastated, ecstatic, furious, surprised and content as I turned from page to page right up to the beautiful end of this beautiful story.  I highly recommend this series.  Do yourself a favor and purchase both books at the same time so you don't have any delay.  Both Saviour and Resolution will become favorites on your bookshelf, as they are now in my own collection.  I look forward to reading more of Lesley Jones' work.  Well done, Lesley!                    -MK

I am a born and raised Essex girl now living on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, just outside of Melbourne Australia, I moved here with my husband and three sons in 2006.

Not only do I love to write but I also love to read and can devour a book overnight if the story grabs me.

I love watching my sons play football and am very partial to a glass of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favourite
