Abel Gunner is a rock-star with legendary skills both in and out of the bedroom. He swore he wouldn’t fall for another woman after being schemed and manipulated by an ex-lover. He kept that vow until he met Gia Mastro. The Dom inside of him awoke the moment he set eyes upon the submissive beauty. His dark soul hungered for her submission and affection. The deep connection they share leaves him desperate for something he never expected – her love. Her pain brings him the pleasure he craves. Her smile calms the beast that rages within him. Gia loves Abel more than life itself, but Abel is disillusioned by love and wrecks Gia in the process. Her life hangs in the balance. His life depends on forgiving her. This couple must face many truths. Is love enough to overcome the damage that dwells within? Gia’s experiences with love have been nil until meeting the infamous bad-boy rocker, Abel Gunner. Swept up in a mind-bending, Dom/submissive love affair, she’s forced to make decisions that both help and hurt their relationship. They both have to face their demons before they can embrace a future together. In the end, they’re faced with two choices: Fight for their love, or die with their demons.


The long awaited sequel to Saving Abel had finally landed; in my Kindle! How excited I was to receive the honour of yet again, reviewing a book written by Gina Whitney.

The story continues exactly where it had left off. Abel had flown half way around the world to go on tour with his band feeling betrayed by Gia. And Gia? Well, the gal in question was left standing all alone feeling completely devastated, totally suicidal. Gina feeling fragile, is a lost soul without her soul mate, completely shuts off from the world. In steps; the most unlikely saviour; Abel’s dad. He gathers her up, takes her half way around the world, and reunites her with her loved one; his son.

Abel sits alone feeling desolate and in pain, drowning his sorrows to get through the hours and days, missing his beloved Gia. After being confronted by his dad, Abel is devastated to learn how leaving Gia had affected her so much. After many hours of talking and sharing details; traumas of times gone by, they both come to the conclusion that their love would overcome any obstacles.

One such obstacle is Abel’s hard faced ex-girlfriend, Morgana. I really disliked this bitchy woman who very conveniently continued to haunt their lives and cause as much chaos and pain as she possibly could. The story follows the couple on a self-discovery of themselves and of each other. The intimate moments still steamed up my glasses; however, their story also filled me with such warmth as they were ‘that’ couple for me! So much in love— me? I turned me into a soppy mess!

I loved that he called her his beauty. The name just seemed to fit her to a tee. I felt quite envious of the love and tenderness Abel showed towards Gia. But there’s someone that troubles you in the storyline, that someone who kept popping up and irritated me no end. The twists and turns of this story filled the pages up quite nicely and held my attention throughout. Abel and Gia were just meant to be and nothing or no-one was going to get in the way!

My thanks to the author for allowing me to review this great book. A well-deserved five glorious shiny stars for an impeccably written book which I couldn’t fault.










I grew up reading Judy Blume, and Nancy Drew books. I was raised in the town of North Valley Stream, New York(Long Island), and attended community college for fashion design. At 19 years old I opened a boutique. Recently, I published my second and third novel Beautiful Lies and Saving Abel. Forgiving Gia, which is the follow to Saving Abel, will be out early fall. When I’m not writing, you can find me with friends and family. I live in Massapequa, NY with my two beautiful boys PJ and Drew, and our Mastiff Hercules. Reading has always been a passion and obsession. You can usually find me typing furiously while shouting obscenities over my latest WIP. My guilty pleasures are: a good laugh, being snarky, espresso, Pistachio ice-cream, alternative music, sunflower seeds, I.P.A’s, twizzlers, and above all steamy swooning angst filled novels. I’m pathologically obsessed with True Blood(Eric ;), Games of Thrones, White Queen, Vampire Diaries, Resurrection, and The Originals. If you’d like to chat. Hit me up on Facebook or twitter.
