Blurb : Letting go never felt so good. Carlisle Queen is dying and no one knows it.Burying the pain of losing her friends and her professional swimming career in a terrorist attack, Americaâs former sweetheart dulls her pain with drugs, pills and parties. The bomb left her with more than nightmares; shrapnel is lodged in her back and inching closer to her spinal cord. When the doctors tell her paralysis is inevitable, she decides to take her own life rather than face a lifetime in a wheelchair. Mateo Butler isnât anyoneâs hero. Reeling from the death of his little sister and his own cowardice, he spends his nights partying and his days ignoring the medical school acceptance letters and his parentsâ concerned phone calls. Just a couple of months from graduation, heâs facing a future filled with shame and regret. The last thing he needs is to meet the woman who compels him to be a better man. Can they save each other? When Carlisle and Mateo meet, the chemistry between them is combustible. They play, party and hide their true selves until one night turns their lust into something moreâ¦something real. As secrets are revealed and walls collapse, what they were and what they might become doesnât matter as much as who they are together. When the choice comes down to life or death, can love be their salvation?
Review : Salvation by Robin Covington was my first book of this author. It is the second book in a series but I felt comfortable to read it as a standalone. The storyline is intriguing and Carlisle is very well developed.
But thatâs already where my problems start with the book. Mateo is sweet and loving but one-dimensional. He is only thinking about her and I cannot âdiveâ into his character.
My other issue is the way the book is written. I need a timeline to feel comfortable with a story or I need a good explanation when there is non . But in this book the story is jumpy and only in one occasion there was a hint about the time that has actually past.
Due to this timeline problem I could not fully understand the development in their relationship – It felt like it was suddenly rushed.
