RATING 4,5 out of 5 stars
No more running from love…
Nearly a year after being rejected for another man, Seattle paramedic Peter Morse is still pining, so when the one that got away asks him for a favor, he agrees. His mission: track down Sean Reid, the runaway brother of a mutual friend. Peter isn’t thrilled about it—until he finds Sean injured by the side of the road.
Everything about Sean stirs Peter’s protective instincts—saving people is what he lives for—but he never anticipated falling for someone so hell-bent on running from him. On top of his physical wounds, Sean struggles with grief and guilt, and the mess his estranged father left when he died threatens to overwhelm him.
Saving Sean means Peter must let go of his pride and turn to friends and family. Asking for help is a bitter pill for Peter to swallow, but if he can’t, how can he expect Sean to accept his help—and his love—in turn?
After Ben, the first installment in the Settle Stories series by Con Riley is one of my all time favorite books in the mm genre, I have no clue how many times I read it. Still I don’t know why I never went ahead and continued with the series, so the release of the second edition was the perfect chance to finally having Saving Sean on my kindle.
I was surprised, I never read a story like this one, I have to say it took me almost the whole book to fully understand Sean, his daddy, and Peter too. I had a hard time with Sean, him being so unwelcoming and close off and stubborn, sometimes I thought he was selfish, others that he was taking advantage of Peter, I truly couldn’t see him being ready to seriously be with Peter. Then I started to feel who Sean really was, he flourished in front of my eyes and it was pretty clear how gone he was for the other young man. I remembered the Peter I met in After Ben and he is still the same, but for the reasons I said earlier, the way he wanted to save and help Sean, unnerved me, he fell so quickly I was a little taken back.
The novel was engaging, maybe just a tiny little slow in some moments but there were some adventures to solve, a lovely ending, plus there were a lot of the characters from the first title in the series nad it was a joy to see them again, to know them better and from another POV. I can’t wait for the next book, Aiden’s Luck. I feel to recommend the whole series, you wont be disappointed.
The cover art by Natasha Snow is gorgeous, I love it!
