SYNOPSIS

Mae had taught me many things; the ability to smile, that hope was a real ideal and most of all that I was worthy of love. Annie also showed me that. She showed me how to see the good things in life. How to sing with the birds every morning, how to laugh when flour and egg decorated the kitchen walls and how to feel the warmth of the sun every day. 
She also proved that I could love with an engulfing force. And I did. I loved my daughter with every fibre of me and every raw nerve that had once only felt pain. My heart swelled with each of her cheeky smiles and every single sweet echo of her voice. 

My daughter was very much her mother’s child. From the lustre of her ebony hair to her twinkling sky blue eyes and from the way her smile lifted my heart, to the way her stubborn side exasperated me. 

I was strong in my beliefs. Determined to raise her the way her mother had wanted me to. But Annie, like Mae, found the funny side to life so effortlessly. She laughed easily and frequently, she delighted in simple things and braved each daily troubles optimistically. 
And I followed her. She taught me how to live as I taught her how to grow. 

And just as I relaxed into life as a father, my father found his way back into mine. 
As did Connie, Mae’s dead sister. 

Goodbyes can’t be taken back. 
The past refuses to be varied. 
And death cannot be reversed… 

Or can it? 

MY REVIEW

THE SALVATION OF DANIEL by DH Sidebottom

I was so worried that book two in this series was going to fall short after finishing the first one. And…I needn’t have worried.  

I think I may be just a shell of my former self after these two works of art.

I will be honest here (ha! When am I not?) It wasn’t quite as good as the first, but by God, it wasn’t far off!.

I am still absolutely broken-hearted over the death of Mae, but LOVED meeting their daughter.

And Connie! WTF??? She is one kick-ass throat punching tough as nails bitch!  

Yeah, this series is awesome sauce and it keeps taking me places I had no idea I even wanted to go. And plot twists? Holy crap, D.H. Sidebottom is great at ripping the rug right out from under you.

  • CONNIE – Well, what can I say about this little bad-ass? She has been to hell and back and lived to tell the tale.

No one knew she was alive and that’s the way she meant it to be. She’s been moulded into something spectacular and she did it all to save her sister.

After learning that her sister had a man and child before her death, Connie looks into him more and does not like what she finds out about our Daniel.

Connie’s story is again one of strength and heart-ache. 

But now, she has a new mission. To save the life of her twin sister’s daughter and get rid of the cruel man who fathered her in such a terrible fashion.

But not all is as it seems and just when she thinks she has it all figured out…shit gets real y’all.

The Phantom inside me was battling with need to play the game. I wanted to break this fucker’s neck, rip his throat out with my fingers but I knew to get the final prize I had to succumb to what came in-between.

  • DANIEL – Daniel has changed his life around. Why?

Because Mae saw a side to him that he didn’t even know existed. And for the tiny little human that he would sacrifice everything for. His daughter.

But he’s been locking away the darker side of him for too long and when he meets with Connie, she triggers him in ways she really shouldn’t.

She is everything he hates in a woman and not only does she know it, but taunts him with it.  

They have a very temporary truce as they have to work together to save little Annie but after that? Well, one of them isn’t going to be walking away.

“You have no idea what you’re goading.” She pursed her lips, her eyes hooded and teasing. “Don’t make excuses for your inability to get a hard on. Just tell me, we can simply talk if you’re having trouble.” Her mocking laugh caused the air in my lungs to solidify, making it difficult to breathe. Fucking bitch. She wanted the darkness, then I’d make sure she never saw light ever again.

  • SEX SCENES – The sex in this book was hot and heavy. It was passion-filled and rough. Both fighting for dominance and both needing release. Wow, new knickers were needed! Need I say more?

“When my cock is pleasuring you, your body is mine, swan.” Pulling out of her slowly, smirking at the way her hips followed me, I tore back into her hard, knocking her forwards up the bed. “Mine to control and mine to rule.” Wrapping her hair around my hand, I tugged her backwards onto me, my cock feeding her pleasure. “I will give you what you want.”

Call me sick and twisted but after being adapted to enjoy pain, there was no greater pleasure than being fucked so hard and brutally that you could feel the flow of blood race around your body, adrenaline and lust driving your heart beat higher and higher as pleasure and pain poured into every nerve of your stimulated body.

FINAL THOUGHTS on THE SALVATION OF DANIEL by DH Sidebottom T

This was another beautifully dark and erotic  book that once again had me sobbing. I DON’T cry! Like, ever!
