S.E.X. Review~ Save Me by Penny Brandon

From the first moment Steve sees Nathan, he knows he’s in trouble. First, Nathan looked just like the doll he’d found on his bed, and second, Steve couldn’t stop thinking how it would feel having Nathan in his arms and under his body. He’s never desired anyone so strongly before, and he’s reluctant to show it, but then Nathan gives him something he hadn’t been conscious of wanting. Stunned, he craves more, but starts to worry what he feels might not be real.

Alone and vulnerable after being dumped by his ex, Nathan longs for the security of being in a relationship. With no money, no job, and now a Voodoo Doll out to kill him, Nathan doesn’t think things could get any worse, but then he starts falling for Steve. Problem is, it doesn’t look like Steve feels the same way. Even after Steve finally lets Nathan in, Steve unexpectedly withdraws, refusing to explain why.

Unable to cope with another rejection, Nathan succumbs to the evil of the doll. Steve realizes he needs to own up to his feelings, but are they enough to save Nathan?

Steve inadvertently sets the wheels in motion as he curses his neighbor Nathan and the roller coaster of Save Me begins.

Penny Brandon created an interesting story involving voodoo, curses, and a killer doll. Interestingly, the force behind the curse was the despair emanating from one of the main characters. Each MC needed to come to terms with his own life and subsequently their lives together in order to break the curse and set Nathan free.

Developmentally Steve grew as a person and reconciled his feelings for Nathan, aiding in breaking the curse. Although Nathan also helped to break the curse I felt his personal growth was not as swift moving or monumental as it should have been. At times I found him whiny and superficial. 

Overall an enjoyable read with an interesting theme. I look forward to the next book in the series.
