By: Angel Payne. Format: eBook. To Be Read.
Being a member in the Special Forces can change a guy, but losing his fiancée in a medical helicopter crash can destroy a man. Unfortunately for Garrett Hawkins, he is a completely changed and emotionally damaged man, since he learned the news of her death, one year ago. Thankfully his job keeps his body going and his mind occupied, therefore he is only haunted in his dreams. While in Thailand, his team was called to rescue kidnapped women from human traffickers and it is there that he discovers his lovely Sage is alive. Sage and her friend have been battling the extremes and living off vegetation, trying to survive. When Sage is reunited with Garrett she hopes they can return back to their previous life of happiness. However Garrett is worried she will be repelled by the man he has become and it is up to Sage to decide their future.
Saved by his Submissive is filled with various levels entwined in the plot. The race against time to save the women from being sold, will leave readers on the edge of their seats. Readers will both love and hate Garrett at times, as he struggles with trying to accept himself. Angel Payne does an excellent job of telling the darker side of self-doubt and fear through the eyes of the leading man, which is reversed from the average romantic roles. This book is chocked full of details, which could make some readers squeamish during the more brutal scenes. This book is definitely not for the faint-hearted, but for fans of military/BDSM romances.
This was the first book that I have read by Angel Payne and of this type of nature. While, I don’t find the whole Dominant-Submissive relationship enjoyable, I can appreciate a well written story line. This book is well written and it has a thrilling plot line, with complicated characters. I feel like this story is like an onion, filled with many layers, sometimes bitter and it will definitely bring tears to your eyes…but in the end it helps pull the meal together.
