Shaun's Salvation by KC Wells

Shaun's Salvation is unlike any K.C. Wells book that I've ever read and I love that!

From the blurb:

Romance is the last thing Shaun wants, but what if it’s exactly what he needs – and deserves?

A selfless son barely holding on

Shaun doesn’t have much of a life. When he’s not working in the restaurant in Portland, Maine, he’s home looking after his dad, who has dementia. The only people he sees on a regular basis are his coworkers, and Nathan, his dad’s in-home nurse, except he and Shaun are like ships that pass in the night. And on those dark nights when Shaun feels so alone, thoughts of Nathan are all he has to cling to.

A caring nurse

It didn’t take Nathan five minutes to know Shaun is a special guy. He’s dealt with enough indifferent families to recognize Shaun has and will always put his dad first. That’s why Nathan is willing to go above and beyond – Shaun is worth it. Nathan’s attraction to him has to go on the back burner, not that Shaun has noticed: Shaun’s focus is all on his dad.

Maybe it’s time for Nathan to convince Shaun he can keep that focus and still have a life – a life that includes love.

Heather's Review:

I absolutely love how K.C. Wells gets into her characters minds and lets them drive the story... you see Shaun and Nathan's personalities and responses grow with each chapter and because of the place that this book starts, you know it's going to be an emotional roller coaster...

I usually talk about heat,  pacing and character development when I give a review, but this time I'll just give a warning: I read this book sitting at the kitchen table yesterday and had to explain to multiple family members why I was crying my eyes out and sobbing uncontrollably...

I am still an emotional mess a full day after I've finished Shaun's Salvation... I'm not going to spoil the story for you, but I will suggest that this is not a book to read at work, on your commute or at an event where people will start asking in the privacy of your home and pack lots of tissues....

Shaun's Salvation can be read standalone, however it's better when you start at the beginning of the Maine Men Series and work your way through...
