Publisher's Summary

A 20-something paramedic suffering from PTSD and a failing relationship with his high school sweetheart becomes embroiled in the tragic life of a young, gay man brutally beaten, raped, and left for dead.
Kane Abel can't help falling for his caregiver, the handsome paramedic who saves his life, but he's resistant. The one time Kane threw caution to the wind, he was left with a wired jaw and a tracheostomy. He can't take much more hurt. But with his attacker's promise to return, Kane lives in a constant state of fear, and with the ever-present paramedic, arousal.
Garrett Young struggles with the question of his sexuality, unable to get Kane out of his mind even as he fights against the demise of his long-time engagement with his girlfriend Amanda. Every day is complicated by his ongoing battle with PTSD and alcoholism, compounded by his fear for Kane's life.

Good book but dark and heavy.

Trigger warnings - non consensual sex and some pretty brutal violence take place in this book and not just in the "off stage" kind of suggested way. It is pretty graphic.

That said, I really loved this book. It is full of some intensely damaged main characters and addresses some pretty heavy stuff. Love the supporting characters and the journey that the two main characters go through to get to their HEA. Not sure I could stomach listening to it over and over due to what Kane goes through - but I probably will listen again because I loved the characters.

Some will need to bypass this due to the trigger issue's but if you can get past them, this book was lovely and well worth both the time and the credit.

Breathless! At times, simply breathless!

Any additional comments?

Thank you Michele for Saving Ryan! This book made me aware of every heart beat...one beat ripping the heart with frightening moments of pure terror leaving one breathless and the next beat on the wings of vivid rousing sensual experiences leaving one breathless again...every moment, every beat mixed perfectly with the next. This is not a book for the faint of heart ..be prepared to live the pain, the joy, the anger, the violence, the intensity of love discovered, shared and lost...every single moment. I remain breathless...
