Salvation by Robin Covington

Title: Salvation – Nashville Nights #29780990543237

A successful Olympic swimmer, Carlisle Queen was seriously injured in a terrorist attack at an Olympic village which killed other athletes, including her fiancé. Though she is now walking again, she knows that shrapnel is still lodged in her back near her spinal column – and moving closer – so that paralysis or death is forecast for her in the near future. She’s determined to live life to the full but not to make any close relationships ever again, they are too risky and it hurts too much when fate tears you apart from those you love. She’s partying hard, having one night stands and avoiding any commitments, planning to commit suicide rather than face life in a wheelchair.

Mateo Butler lost his sister to cancer. After she refused to continue treatment he fought with her and never had chance to make up with her again as she died whilst he partied to forget what was happening to her. He’s still partying to forget.

The two were instantly attracted when they met at the beginning go the school year. Now, almost a year later, Carlisle decides to have a one night stand with Mateo. Will that be enough for them? Will they reveal their secrets to each other? Will their love stand a chance?

This is a really dramatic story, full of teenage angst, medical drama and conflicting emotions. Decisions are made that impact on potential relationships, you’re never quite sure what will go wrong next! A real roller coaster ride filled with unexpected twists, turns, steep hills and sudden drops. A great story but I admit to being old fashioned and there was a little too much graphic description of sexual action for my tastes, otherwise it could so easily have been a 5* review from me. As the blurb for the book says, “When the choice comes down to life of death, can love be their salvation?” You’ll just have to read the book to find out!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
