I received this book for free from Gay Romance Reviews in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Saxon’s Savior had everything I was looking for in a gay romance story. There was chemistry for sure. There was also drama in the form of a natural disaster. Lately, there was a slow heat meaning their feelings were built and not instant.
Dallas Haynes’ life has never been easy or simple. Losing his mother to a drug overdose, made him want to help people and prevent the same fate from happening to other kids. Saxon James has a similar childhood which helps both of them bond.
Dallas does not want to like Saxon, he is replacing a friend on the medical team. But then things begin to change slowly. Then bam, Saxon becomes a step in parent for his sister’s kids after her death. But Dallas does not think he is ready to be in a child’s life.
There is no doubt that Saxon and Dallas have incredible chemistry. No one has ever been able to calm Dallas down from an incident like Saxon. But that does not stop Dallas from trying to deny it. But, in the end, it only draws them closer together.
In Saxon’s Savior, there were not really dull points. Each page and chapter helped to keep the plot moving. I was able to read the book in one day which shows that it really kept my attention. Overall I really enjoyed the book.
The characters were all three dimensional and believable. The setting all made sense and seemed like the story could take place in the real world. Nothing in the book really stood out as being unbelievable. Like I mentioned before I really enjoyed Saxon’s Savior and look forward to going back and reading the other books in the series.

Paramedic Dallas Haynes is between a rock and a hard place. Needing to replace a fallen paramedic, but not wanting anyone else to fill his shoes, he procrastinates until the decision is taken out of his hands. Dallas is less than thrilled when the new medic turns up for his first shift.
Saxon James hopes his first day at Gloucester’s Firehouse Three will be a turning point in his life. Sent packing from his previous job, and branded a troublemaker, this new position is his last chance to get it right. When he receives a frosty reception from his new boss, Dallas, he’s even more upset to find himself attracted to the taciturn man.
The new coworkers are like oil and water from the moment they meet. But the burning desire between them inevitably begins to draw them closer and soften the animosity between the two men.
Finally surrendering to the fiery passion between them, Saxon and Dallas are doused by approaching Hurricane Tess, who has her sights set on Gloucester. Can they band together to save lives in the height of the storm, or will their budding relationship sink in the rising tide?
