Review & Blog Tour: Saving Alexander by Susan Mac Nichol

 
 
 
 

Synopsis
 
Punishing himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.

Famous author though he may be, Alexander Montgomery is not someone you take home to meet Mother. Seriously flawed, damaged by a horrific past, he’s trying hard to claw his way back to normality. But how can anyone respect what he truly is? His therapy involves regular sessions at Study in Scarlet, an exclusive S&M club.

Then comes Sage. Tall, with black hair and blue eyes, an up-and-coming actor with impossible charm and boy-next-door good looks, he’s the perfect choice to play the leading man in a TV adaptation of Alex’s last best-seller. Even more, he is a man you introduce to your family. Which Alex would do—if he weren’t taken by another man who offers the punishments Alex prays will wipe away the past and make him the person he wants to be. Yet, perhaps there is another path to redemption. If only the solution would reach out and touch him.

“Alexander Montgomery was in a lot of pain.  Pain of his own choosing but pain nonetheless.”
When this is the first sentence you read, how can you not dive head first into the world that Susan Mac Nichol created?  Between the beautiful characters and the who-dun-it mystery, this book contained every element needed for a masterpiece.  Love, heartache, struggle, and redemption.
Alexander Montgomery was a product of his past.  Lured into a cult and abused by a man, his soul was battered and despite his conventional therapy Alexander needed more.  Sessions at the hands of a sadist, he coped with the world the best way he knew how.  His life as a successful author was skyrocketing as his words were coming to life on the big screen with man he mentally sculpted the role around leading the cast. 
Christopher Sage was the epitome of good looks and sex appeal. So when his eyes locked on the mismatched ones of the best-selling author, he was smitten.  Unexplained accidents begin to mimic the book and no one feels safe.  Sage and Alexander begin spending time together and the air begins to sizzle around them until jealousy rears its ugly head almost destroying it all.
I fell in love with Sage and Alexander.  Sage’s love and patience with Alexander go beyond explanation.  Alexander has never had anyone who made him feel the way that Sage does and it scares him…A LOT, but with the support of a wonderful man he fights for his happiness.  This story is riddled with heartache and sadness.  Love finds its way and gives them strength. 
Susan Mac Nichol creates theses amazing worlds of strong gay men,  throws in some action and suspense, and BAM…a masterpiece!  She has concocted her own recipe for success and it hasn’t let her down yet.
5 out of 5
