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?

About The Author

Copy of con riley avi.jpg

CON RILEY lives on the wild and rugged Devonshire coast, with her head in the clouds and her feet in the Atlantic Ocean. Injury curtailed her enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, so writing fiction now fills her free time instead.

Love, loss, and redemption shape her romance stories, and her characters are flawed in ways that make them live and breathe. When not people-watching or wrangling her own boy band of teen sons, she spends time staring at the sea from her kitchen window.

If you see her, don’t disturb her—she’s probably thinking up new plots.

Con Riley delivers a glorious romance in Saving Sean

41sj2Yd0++LSaving Sean by Con Riley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not sure what happened to my original reviews of Con’s books, only Must Like Spinach seems to have survived.

Anyways, Saving Sean is being re-released shortly with a new cover and a bit of a re-work but it’s not changed enough to take away from this glorious romance which is one of my favourites from Con.

Saving Sean is as much about Peter finding a new direction as it is about the titular character. But it’s so much more than just a romance. It’s about finding acceptance, it’s about learning how to move on, it’s about putting the past to bed and looking to the future.

It deals with the mental illness of a character who has died at the time the book starts and it examines how just one small thing can push someone over the edge (don’t worry there’s no trigger warnings necessary imho – it deals with OCD rather than suicidal impulses).

And, while this book takes place over a super short time period, it never feels it. To me, it’s like time stretches out across infinite days while Peter and Sean fall in love at the same time as they fix up Sean’s cabin and work out both of their complex feelings for their families’ past lives.

Peter and Sean connect on hundreds of levels, but I think one of the main ones is that they both understand how the other became disconnected and they’re both determined to move beyond and try to make a difference.

I loved how Con’s other interconnected couples get involved here as well, I’m a big fan of Joel and Ethan, although Aiden’s a bit of a pratt at first in this one. We do see the genus of his own story and his relationship with Marco begin in this book though and it’s lovely to know what’s coming next if, like me, you’ve already read Aiden’s Luck

If you read Saving Sean before, then I’ll just say Con’s tidied it up, made it more linear and with less jumping around, and it’s had another edit, but the same beautiful love story is still at its heart.

I had the privilege of proofing this new edition for Con. The review is my own honest and unbiased opinion.
