Abel Gunner, the lead singer of the band Lethal Abel, is what beautiful nightmares are made of. His gritty, melodic rasp threatens to rip your heart out of your chest and leave you gasping for the very breath he robbed you of. His kisses, detonating on impact, leave you ruined. Abel is also a Dom, and his appetite for seduction is legendary and intense. After a chance encounter with Gia, his need to dominate this woman increases tenfold. He wants to consume her, merge with her, and never leave her body.
Abel's emerald eyes touch the deepest part of Gia's soul in a way that terrifies her. She fears he can see her secret. Lies, guilt, and betrayal lay beneath her skin, and she's terrified of being exposed. How will Gia ever begin to explain? She doesn't believe she's worthy of him, and her greatest fear is that her carefully guarded heart will be shattered. However, she finds herself unable to deny this rogue tattooed rocker whose kisses just might ruin her.
Saving Abel is the first book in the Rocker series and it is not a stand alone story. Let me start by saying this story is off the charts HOT. Abel is not only a rock god but a sex god who is also a Dom, is there a better combination? Well there is actually something more, something that makes me personally melt into a puddle but you'll have to find that out on your own by reading this book!
When I first started this book I thought it was just some super hot erotica but then the characters and the plot started to really develop and I was hooked! Abel is a sexy, brooding, extreme Alpha male and he is definitely hiding something pretty major. He could definitely be described as sex on a stick and he will definitely get your panties in a bunch! He can be a real jerk sometimes but it seems to me that is because he isn't used to having feelings for anyone. In fact, he is also a womanizer until he meets Gia who awakens something inside of him and gets him hopelessly addicted to her. I have mixed feelings on Gia, I can't really say why without spoiling some plot points. I mostly felt sorry for her because of her history and how Abel's loving treatment affected her because she had never experienced anything like that before. I was torn between wanting to hug her and wanting to slap her throughout the entire story. I think she is going to redeem herself for some of her bad decisions but we'll see! However the relationship between the two was great, the scorching hot chemistry made for some incredible sex scenes and the way that both of them were discovering what love was really like was endearing.
This novel is full of secrets, each main character is hiding something huge. Also, there is something majorly shady going on throughout this novel and it involves at least one secondary character but my gut is telling me that the secrets run deeper than it seems. Some things are revealed by the end of this novel but there is definitely more to come and I can't wait to read more! The only reason this book didn't get 5 stars from me is that some of the dialogue seemed awkward, not enough to really affect the book but it did bother me a little bit in the beginning, it did improve by the end though.
The ending was explosive and while I was sort of expecting something like that to happen it was still intense. I am definitely counting the minutes to the next book to find out what is in store for our characters and to learn the rest of the secrets!

I grew up reading Judy Blume, and Nancy Drew books. I was raised in the town of North Valley Stream, New York(Long Island), and attended community college for fashion design. At 19 years old I opened a boutique. Recently, I published my second novel Beautiful Lies(erotica). Saving Abel(Erotic-Rock-Romance) will be my third and will be published June 30th. When I'm not writing, you can find me with friends and family. I live in Massapequa, NY with my two beautiful boys PJ and Drew, and our Mastiff Hercules. Reading has always been a passion and obsession. You can usually find me typing furiously while shouting obscenities over my latest WIP. My guilty pleasures are: a good laugh, being snarky, espresso, Pistachio ice-cream, alternative music, sunflower seeds, I.P.A's, Twizzlers, and above all steamy swooning angst filled novels. I'm pathologically obsessed with True Blood(Eric ;), Games of Thrones, White Queen, Vampire Diaries, Resurrection, and The Originals. If you'd like to chat. Hit me up on Facebook or twitter.
