Publisher's Summary

"I lifted my gaze to tell Seth no but then I saw it. The thing I'd feared I'd lost. It wasn't hero worship or the wayward emotions of an innocent child. And it wasn't some distorted reflection of a man who no longer existed. All I saw was me...the way he saw me." (Ronan)
Trauma surgeon Ronan Grisham lost everything the day the man he loved was stolen from him in a brutal attack. Driven by a thirst for vengeance, he turns his hatred into building an underground group that can do what he couldn't that fateful day...take the lives of the guilty to save the lives of the innocent. But years later, he's forced to confront the one link to his past that he can't sever.
Seven years after the loss of his parents in a violent home invasion that left him permanently scarred both inside and out, 21-year-old Seth Nichols is trying to put his life back together so he can take over the reins of his father's global shipping empire. But the last person he expects to come back into his life is the man he drove away with one innocent, stolen kiss.
With one brush of his lips, Seth managed to do to Ronan what no other had since the day Ronan watched the light in his fiancé's eyes go out forever. He made him need again. But Ronan can't need anyone, least of all his dead fiancé's younger brother. Because even one touch from Seth could shatter Ronan's carefully constructed world and Ronan knows there's no coming back from that a second time.
But when a series of escalating attacks against Seth forces Ronan back into his life, Seth knows it's his last chance to show Ronan he can be the man the broken surgeon needs. Only the Ronan who returns isn't the Ronan Seth fell in love with so long ago....
Can Seth be Ronan's salvation or will he end up destroying them both?

Better Than Reading The Book!!

I am going to be totally honest here, and say I loved the book, and I wasn't sure that the audio version would hold me as much as the ebook I have - boy was I wrong about that ! I have actually listened to this about three or four times now, and for some reason it just gets better each time I listen. All the raw emotion that was within the book, is also right here on the audio. Hats off to you Joel Leslie, you were incredible on this audio. This is one audio that I will continue to listen to again and again.

Seth is slowly getting his life back together, since the horrifying event of his parents deaths. However, it seems just as he is beginning to live a more normal life, it seems like someone doesn't want him to do so. Now enter Ronan, who doesn't seem to like being anywhere near Seth - or does he??

Ronan is a total conundrum really. You have met him before, but I have to say I wasn't sure about him. He comes across as a total loner, only interacting when he has to.... but this seems to be just a facade to puts up to keep people away. Is it possible for Seth to break through this façade?

Both Ronan and Seth don't realise how much they need each other, but both have to overcome their fears to get anywhere, but that is not as easy as it seems. To me, Ronan seems to crave what Seth is offering, but is held back in painful memories.

I am not going to give away the plot of the book, but rest assured you will be gripped by this story, complete with twists and turns. You will also be drawn right into the audio with Joel Leslie, he has a way of holding you in the story – so much so that you really won’t want to stop listening!!

If you love Sloane Kennedys books and also like audio I would highly recommend this audio to add to your collection – you will not be disappointed.

Amazing and much better to be heard via read.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I had never heard a book read before ever. this was hot. I loved it and would recommend for all to listen, you get the gist of it better by the feeling of a voice it puts you in the moment, helps puts the pieces together in your mind much much easier.
I tried reading it while listening and swapping between the two just to see how the difference was, and it was just such an amazing difference, whilst Ronan's voice didnt match the thought it was in my mind it gave my mind something to work with.
Seth too didnt seem to be who my mind had expected him to be, but brought the whole book to life much better,
Ronan losing his cool "Seth so exasperated with him when he couldnt touch him, brought tears to my eyes, and then Ronan losing it in his own room before he has to explain to the man he now loved more than His previous lover, Seth's brother, What had happened to him and his brother had tears and tears down my face I felt and heard rather than made them up in my own mind, it was my most favorite part, to listen as he was broken while the light of Seth pulled his pieces back together was by far better than my own mind could imagine, so please do if you get the chance it's worth it..

What was one of the most memorable moments of Salvation?

When I realised that listening to this book has cracked the moment reading in my mind will not be the same esp in the garage when Ronan got to Seth as Seth thought he was about to be shot and brought Ronan's face into his mind.

Have you listened to any of Joel Leslie’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Never have this was a first for a honest review.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book being heard rather than read brought tears to my eyes as my mind couldnt comprehend the differences being read to rather than me reading them myself.

Any additional comments?

Totally totally addicted now..
