Blog Tour and Review: Resolution by Lesley Jones
This is one of those books where if it can go wrong it will. Even I couldn’t guess at some of the ways it could go wrong.
Lauren and Gabe both have pasts that leave them feeling undeserving of love. They both have fiery tempers, and naturally this leads to fireworks, not little backyard bangers but huge public display fireworks, these guys don’t do anything by halves.
I remember putting off reading the first book because the synopsis hadn’t appealed to me, I was so wrong.
The speed at which this relationship moves is beyond supersonic, everything seems to be firing ahead full steam and without pause, but somehow it works. That could partly be down to the huge amount of hot and dirty sex they have, but there’s a story in here as well,
It’s one of those books where you’re cheering on Lauren at the same time you’re shouting at her not to be so bloody stupid, she’s not always making the best decisions bless her.
I have a huge soft spot for this transplanted Brit, and love the banter between her and her Aussie bloke.
Yes there are a lot of sad moments in this book, or bits that just make you tear up, but there are some really funny moments too.
There’s also a little too much information for a mother of an eleven year old girl to read, the insights into Gabe’s fourteen year old daughter are enlightening and scary and I’m so not ready to go there!
I think for me the over riding message from this book is that there is light at the end of the tunnel. No matter how dark and long the journey has been, that light shines brightly at the end.
(5 Stars – Helen)
This book was received from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.
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 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
