Publisher's Summary

Haunted by his years at war, Boston paramedic Gael Dominic spends his time saving other people's lives. An empty house, a single friend, and living at work, Gael is not content with his existence, but he's close. Gael was expecting his overnight shift on Thanksgiving to be the same as always - manic crowds, heart attacks...until catastrophe strikes, and Boston's streets run with blood.
On the run from an abusive and politically powerful father, Silas has been on the cold, mean streets of Boston for days, injured, hungry and alone. When he wakes up in the middle of a nightmare, he expects to die in the same alley he was calling home.
Brought together by tragedy, Silas and Gael can't resist their attraction. Gael may have saved Silas, but it's his alleyway angel who brings Gael back to life.
As Christmas approaches, Silas and Gael learn how to love, despite their pasts. And as Silas' past closes in, Gael learns the greatest gift he could ever give isn't something bought in a store, but freely given from the heart.
Warning: Mature content. Violence. Male/Male sexual contact.

Such a sweet story - great narration!

Gael (pronounced Guy – el) is an amazingly sappy and sweet soul who finds a broken and beaten, half-dead Silas in an alley and immediately falls under his spell. His normal hands-off approach to dating falls away as he can’t help but dive into the messy life that is Silas.

Silas has a lot of story for only being 19 years old. When he sees “G” he also immediately falls for the (much) older man.

There is a bit of drama with Silas’ family and a bit of worry about their ages, but really, the love story itself is almost completely without angst.

The sensual times are pretty smokin’ and the romance is ooey and gooey enough even for my sappy soul!

Audio

Derrick McClain does a tremendous job with this! I loved the accents he used – G’s partner has a mix of Irish and South Boston… awesome! Silas and Gael are both as I’d “picture” them in my head and as always he’s great with the emotion and pacing as well.

Highly Recommended

Angst-filled Holiday story

Would you consider the audio edition of Saving Silas to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version.

Would you be willing to try another book from SJ Himes? Why or why not?

Oh yes, I like her stories!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not necessarily.

Any additional comments?

*I was provided with a copy of this audiobook by the author in exchange for a fair review*Gael is an Iraqi war veteran suffering from PTSD. He now works as an EMT in Boston. Following a mass shooting event he finds a wounded young man, Silas, who is the son of a local, powerful District Attorney. Silas’ father is abusive, and doesn’t approve of his son being gay. Gael instantly feels very protective of Silas, and Silas feels very protected by Gael. I’m not a huge fan of insta-love, but it wasn’t really overdone in this story. Gael and his friend Jim work together to protect Silas from his influential father. Much of this book was kind of unbelievable and over the top, along the lines of a Die Hard movie. There is a lot of angst in this story, but it’s all wrapped up in a neat, happy ending. The narrator, Derrick McClain, is among my favorites, and once again I enjoyed listening to him narrate this story. I did have an issue with his pronunciation of Gael’s name – early in the reading I heard both Gile (one syllable, hard G, rhymes with smile) and Guy-El (two syllables). By the end of the story (and after the pronunciation had been clarified in the book) he was consistently saying it the correct way.
