Dancing, loud music, drinking and sex…
Who wouldn’t love a job that entailed all these things?
After giving up on school and being cast aside by an unsupportive family, Soren Matheson figured he’d landed every young man’s dream job.
But… there is a catch.
Not everything is as it seems and at the end of the day…
Maybe even dream jobs don’t exist.
Remy Moretti lives in a world of precision and order. When a chance run-in with a sassy, sarcastic blond one evening upsets his structured world, Remy needs to find out who he is.
What he discovers makes his hair stand on end.
The defeat and fear hidden behind the young man’s eyes gives him nightmares.
Someone needs to get to the bottom of this.
Until then, Remy will need to do whatever it takes to keep Soren safe.
Oh Good Lord, how I love these amazingly strong characters that love so hard, so completely, and absolutely unconditionally. Stories like these just make you believe in absolute true love. Nicky James’s characters always touch my heart. Every single one of them are so incredibly strong and unbelievably flawed but so real and so remarkable. I love this author. She is an amazing storyteller as I’ve probably said in all my reviews and her stories will gut punch you at time. They make such an impact, they’re painful sometimes painful but the characters…formidable…unwavering…amazing.
The Escape: Soren’s Saga is no exception to any of what I said above. This book is amazing. I was always curious about Soren. In Abel’s book he really seemed to love his job but there was always something niggling the back of my mind. In this book it’s all laid out in painful detail and it’s worse than what I could have imagined.
Soren is soft, quiet, kind, and lost. After being kicked out of his house at a young age Soren took the only avenue available to him and never imagined what it would lead to. Years, later he’s still obligated to do a job he can’t stand just to survive day to day. He considers himself unlovable so dating is totally out of the question.
Remy Moretti is captivated by Soren from the very first encounter. Not easily deterred Remy seeks him out and shows Soren that he’s different from the men that only want sex from him. Remy is persistent and eventually is able to break through Soren’s walls.
Remy and Soren have a bumpy start to things. Remy, with all his eagerness, and strong spirit battles his own demons daily. But I have to admit Remy may be one of my most favorite characters Nicky’s ever written. He is just the most amazing person. What he does for Soren and how he shows his love was remarkable.
This book was fantastic. Great addition to the series and I really can’t wait for more…there were lots of little bait hints towards the end…we will see. And it was nice to see Abel happy, really happy….loved that.
