In Saving Sean, unlucky-in-love paramedic Peter is sent on a mercy mission to save the younger brother of Maggie (a friend of Peter's 'ex' Theo, with whom he is still infatuated). Peter can't refuse and spends his vacation helping idealistic young conservationist Sean go through his deceased father's cabin. A lot of pressure is on Sean to finalise the estate and sell the cabin and land to a big consortium but he is not coping with the memories that it brings back of his cruel father and lost mother. Sean's vulnerability and wild beauty becomes increasingly important to Peter as he learns the difference between infatuation and true love.

I just want to share some of the things I really like about this author's style. Firstly the realism. Our MC's are not isolated. They are part of a group of fully fleshed out secondary characters that have significant roles to play in helping our heroes reach their HEA. The issues surrounding the loss of a parent, sibling relationships, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder are all incorporated into the plot in a way that just increases the reader's enjoyment and knowledge of the characters. The fact that Sean starts to exhibit some of his father's symptoms as the pressure mounts up is an extra touch that cemented my belief in the story.

Other things like the sex scenes which are among the best I've read in this genre. There are only one or two that progress to full anal sex, most are mutual BJ's or frotting, but they are so incredibly sensual and FUNNY! I found myself laughing as the guys joke around during the act. I like that it's not always serious because that's what it's like IRL.

I LOVED the ongoing joke about Peter who blurts out everything that comes into his mind without realising that he has spoken.

As I said with my review on After Ben, I really have fallen in love with this author, she writes beautifully. I find myself gliding through the pages as if I'm there witnessing it all for myself. And as I normally skim through the sex scenes(as I've so many they seem all a like) I actually read through those, they were jusr written that well. I'm a sucker for strong characters saving the weaker/damaged ones, helping them to become strong themselves, and finding love at the same time. So I just had to read about Peter and Sean. I really enjoyed it.

Some other reviewer had mentioned intsa-love and I strongly agree with that, its just not that believable when characters claim their love after meeting a few times. Where a lot of books out there have that, I didn't have that feeling with this one. It felt well developed.

And as I said with my review with After Ben, Part of me wanted to read Seans side of things, although there was a lot that Peter learned about Sean even without Seans pov, so I didnt find myself craving his side of the story as I did with Morgans in the first book. Morgans just a mystery. The same reviewer mentioned the lack of sense with Sean, I felt that with both Sean and Morgan, and I think it has to do with not hearing their side of things. The reader grows to love characters from reading their pov's.... it makes them complete. I wanted so badly to fall in love with Sean and Morgan, and I did in a way, but it was incomplete in my eyes... they didnt feel real.

Theres so many good characters in both books, I really can't wait to see who shows up in the next one. I really loved Peter's dad in this one, found myself getting teary eyed with their encounters. Jack the librarian popped up and I really liked him in his brief showing.

I'll agree that "Saving Sean" feels more impulsive and less "slow burn" than "After Ben," but Riley's gift with words and emotions makes this a marvelously satisfying book nonetheless. It is a different sort of a love story than her first novel - this is "bolt from the blue" love. Not everyone buys into it, but some of us are willing to embrace the possibility.

Once again we are treated to beautifully complex characters - not always likable immediately, but ultimately revealed to be lovable and admirable. We meet Peter Morse again - the paramedic who started to fall for Theo in "After Ben" but ended up in second place. Still mooning over his lost almost-love, the ever-helpful Peter gets caught up in a friend's family trauma, which leads him to an isolated cabin in the Oregon woods. There he meets Sean, flighty, slight, and sporting a long red braid.

Peter's ingrained training to assist wounded people kicks in, as he tries to figure how this skittish young man ended up in the mess he's in - shunned by the people in the town where he lives, harrassed by mysterious men in black cars, and obsessed with finding the secret locked inside his late father's hoarding mania.

Sean is not Peter's type at all - but we all know from the start that love doesn't work that way. Riley's complex tapestry of relationships, entangling Peter's growing network of Seattle friends as well as his lonely father in the narrative, is masterfully woven. These people become our friends, too, which makes the reading all the more pleasurable.

Oddly, I could have done with a little less sex in this. Riley writes this very well - and lovingly - but I'm always an advocate of restraint. The key moments are important for the emotional heft of the story - but unless the primary purpose of a novel is to be erotic, a lighter hand with the random nooky wouldn't have hurt.

Can't wait for book number three. Next on my Kindle.
