Resolution by Lesley jones BLOG TOUR + MY 5* REVIEW + GIVEAWAY

Title: Resolution
Author: Lesley Jones
Genre: Erotica

Resolution picks up exactly where Saviour left us all hanging! Having left an abusive marriage at 45, Lauren can hardly believe that she has found Gabe, a 35 year old blonde buff sex god, their instant chemistry has convinced him that that he wants to change his serial shagging ways and to make what they have found permanent, he knows that he loves Lauren but relationships are a whole new concept to him and he doesn't always get it right.

Lauren, still reeling from the abuse she has suffered at the hands of her ex husband is not convinced that jumping straight into another marriage is the right thing for her, despite how much she loves Gabe, the sex is amazing, they have no problems there, with Gabe she is growing in confidence and trying things in the bedroom (and every where else) that she never even considered during her marriage but they have known each other for just 10 short weeks and already they have been through enough drama to last a lifetime. Lauren has once again been beaten and humiliated by her soon to be ex-Husband, Gabe has revealed he was sexually abused by his Step-Mother as a teenager, and Gabe’s ex is threatening to stop him seeing his daughter.

Will Lauren listen to taunts from jealous exes and her own self doubt; or will the love (and lust) Lauren has found in Gabe’s arms be enough for her to let go of her painful past to build a future with Gabe. Resolution is the conclusion of Gabe and Laurens story, it will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, with some steamy and erotic sex scenes, just to keep your pulse racing, like Saviour, some scenes are gut wrenching, it will have you laughing, crying and wanting to not only hug Gabe and Lauren but also wanting to shake some sense into them. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

My Views:
I thought that Saviour (book 1) was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and so I was more than a little excited to get my hands on Resolution! Was I disappointed... HELL NO...IT'S FREAKING AWESOME!! I could honestly read about Lauren, Gabe and their stories all day long, this has definitely become one of my go to series that I will read again and again without getting bored. 

This book also left me with one MAHOOSIVE book hangover and you can call me a book whore, a nerd, a geek or whatever but I'm telling you now I actually miss these characters like they are real people Yes that's right, I'm having not so fictional feelings about fictional characters and I don't care who knows it!

One of the things that makes this book stand out for me is that Lauren and Gabe are just so relate-able and so unlike your everyday  characters. Lauren is a middle aged women with a middle- aged body to match and sometimes she opens her mouth and shit comes out that shouldn't, but hey we've all been there! And Gabe, well ok Gabe is pretty much perfect and I may be in love with him... but he does have his own troubled past (which made me cry by the way!) that causes him to make a few decisions that will have you shouting at your e-reader in complete frustration

I loved how many times this book made me laugh and if you are not from the UK then some of it may of gone over your head a couple of times, but without doubt my favourite line from the whole book is
 "you say the funniest words sometimes. Whats a div?" "It means I love you. Drink your water" It so doesn't mean that, but he won't even remember in the morning so I think I'm safe.
Cue me laughing like a crazy lady and getting odd looks from people around me. The witty banter between the two is brilliant though and continues the whole way through the book.

There is just so much to take away from Resolution than just a love story. Yes it has romance and of course sex scenes that pretty much melt the pages they are so damn hot, but it's also about a domestic abuse survivor. Resolution sends out a positive message that I just know will touch the heart of many.

Without question Resolution earns 5 BIG BOOK LOVE STARS from me and I will be buying any book I come across with Lesley Jones name on it.

I am a born and raised Essex girl now living on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, just outside of Melbourne Australia, I moved here with my husband and three sons in 2006.

Not only do I love to write but I also love to read and can devour a book overnight if the story grabs me.

I love watching my sons play football and am very partial to a glass of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favourite
