Review of book:
Saving Sam is the second book in the Zero, Ohio series by author Megan Slayer. This book is my first in the Zero, Ohio series and I was not lost at all. It is a complete stand alone story.
Sam is a bartender who lives life on his own terms. He has piercings, funky hair, and body art to prove it. He has a huge heart and wants to help GLBT youth, so they will never have the pain he had growing up.
I really adored Sam. I love a bad boy with a soft heart. He has had kicks in life but they never keep him down. That spirit really made me cheer for him. He also has an adorable Rottie named Ziggy that had me at hello in this book.
When Josh takes a friend to the Eight Ball Bar he doesn’t expect to run into the man who plagued him with wet dreams when he was growing up. Sam used to be his best friend but somewhere along the way Josh went from tattooed pierced, and colorful hair to the conservative man he is now. Seeing Sam brings back all the memories of how he should have never let him go.
Problem is, Sam doesn’t think he is good enough. Don’t worry Josh is very convincing in the most creative of ways.
The character connection and love between these two make this book a very memorable read. I didn’t want this book to end. I like how Ms. Slayer makes me fall in love with her characters and cheer for them to have their happy ending. Saving Sam is the book you pick up when you want to believe that sometimes the good guys really do finish first after all.
