Title: Resolution (Book 2 of The Saviour Series)
Author: Lesley Jones
Publication Date: October 4, 2013

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 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.

Short Recap ~ Seventeen-year-old Eva is a chosen one. Chosen to live, while others meet a swift and painful death from an incurable virus so lethal, a person is dead within days of symptoms emerging. In the POD system, a series of underground habitats built by the government, she waits with the other chosen for the deadly virus to claim those above. Separated from family and friends, it’s in the PODs she meets David. And while true love might not conquer all, it’s a balm for the broken soul.

After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That’s the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating… monsters.

Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life–a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure. (recap courtesy of goodreads.com)

 

 

 

 

This is only one of a handful of novels in this genre (dystopian) that I have ever read, so I went into reading this basically blind and without any preconceived notions of what a novel in this genre is really about. I have read YA novels off and on for years. This novel was a wonderful surprise.

 

First off, I received a paperback from the author (thank you) and I was able to dive right in and fall into the world she created. I could picture myself living as the characters did, trying to make the most out of a bad situation, decorating the walls, etc. They tried to make it less of a tomb and a bunker and more of a real ‘home’ if you could call it that. After a year of what they had been told was the incubation and dying off process, I cannot imagine their terrifying surprise.

 

I felt for Eva and David as they emerged from their POD and had to make their way into the unknown. They hide and try to evade those they once knew, yet those people are no longer ‘human.’

 

Take one part “I AM LEGEND”, one part “OMEGA MAN”, stir in “YA Adult Romance” and bake for a year, you get “PODs”.

 

“PODs” is one novel that you will read and it will make you think twice about calling ‘preppers’ nuts, lol. It did scare me or should I say, it gave me pause as far as looking at the world at it is and how is might be on the near future. Michelle brings her own view of this not to distant future to life and keeps the reader going and pulling them further into her world.

 

I am excited to read the next one!!!

PROMO~ “Wild Hyacinth”

Synopsis – A deadly lover. His perfect mate. Asher is everything Aria’s never dared to imagine: sexy, confident, and rich. But if she convinces him to take her to his bed . . . her first time may be her last.
Incubus Asher Chain seduces every woman he meets whether he wants to or not, and refuses to let anyone grow close to him. Until the alluring, tattooed waitress Aria Hyacinthe admits she’s been living in her car. Enthralled by her unusual beauty – and terrified he’ll succumb to his deadly, incubus needs – Asher offers her a place to stay.

Living in Asher’s loft above his gym, Aria’s desire for his body is growing more urgent with every touch. Used to being the backward, shy one, in his presence she becomes fierce, captivating, and breaks down Asher’s walls against all his attempts to keep his distance. She has no clue that if he gives in to her passionate pleas, she won’t survive the night, just like all the other women who have fallen victim to his charms.

But the deeper Asher and Aria fall in love, the harder he must fight the incubus in his soul, demanding her life.
