Twinsie Talk Book Reviews Presents Saving Alexander by Susan Mac Nicol Blog Tour Stop


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.


My Review

5 of 5 Saving Alexander/Evan


Okay now that I got that out of the way I have to say a huge THANK YOU to Dee and Kindle Alexander for suggesting this book and the authors other books to me because HOLY FREAKING MOTHER LOVER I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book and Stripped Bare from Susan. She has this knack for slowing letting you in and grabbing you and before you know it you are invested in these characters and you feel what they feel and you find yourself yelling at your kindle wondering what in the hell just happened. 

Saving Alexander is one of the best M/M books I have read so far this year. Man Alexander AKA Alex is a lost and tortured soul. He has come from a dark and abused path and has made a name for himself writing novels. His series is now becoming a TV series and he is holding casting calls to choose who will play the leading characters. Alex has in mind who the main male character should be and he gets his wishes when the actor he finds intriguing and gorgeous auditions for the part and actually wants it.

Christopher Sage is gorgeous and smart and talented and he is gay. Yes folks I said it he is gay and he is one fine specimen and Alex has a crush on him. So when Sage agrees to take the part of the main character Alex is thrilled but at the same time he is nervous because Alex wants Sage but he has a past that won't allow him to give himself to another in a normal relationship. See Alex was held as a sex slave in a cult and he goes to a BDSM club to get his therapy in the form of rough sex and beatings. With this knowledge Alex knows Sage would never go for him being with another man as well as being with him. But soon Sage can't stay away from Alex and Alex can't stay away from Sage.

As they navigate through their relationship Sage never let's go Alex and as they get closer they find that they love each other and need each other but someone or more than one person is determined to have Alex all to themselves and starts to sabotage the set they are filming and they try and hurt Sage but together the two are determined to fight for what feels so right. Sage loves Alex and proves it everyday when he does not walk out on him. But will it be to much when someone tries to hurt Alex and they make Sage choose between Alex or his life. Which will Sage choose?

This is a MUST READ for everyone! Lord I need more from Susan because I sat in my room and read all night until I was done reading and I laughed and I cried and I will never look at the words Tallulah & Chrysippus the same again! Thank you Susan for this wonderful story of love and trust and friendship and overcoming abuse!
