Serve your purpose. It’s the code by which Elijah McMillan lives and breathes. There is no alternative. He was born to service other men, and he does so with pride.
At least until his irresistible brainiac of a counselor Silas Rutledge comes along and tells him he can’t.
That it’s wrong.
That he’s “worth more.”
Only the more Silas talks, the more Elijah starts to think that it might be true—that he’s someone of value instead of a toy made for better men.
That maybe he can be saved.
Elijah McMillan doesn’t want to be fixed, but his case is one Silas Rutledge refuses to give up. With his sharp mind, quick wit, and stunning good looks, he has the potential to do anything.
If only he’d let Silas help.
For every step forward, Elijah bounds three paces back, and one of these days when he jumps, Silas is sure he’ll come tumbling into his arms. All he can do is hope that when it happens, he’ll have the strength to turn him down.
He can’t fall for his patient.
Not now. Not ever.
No matter how badly he wants to.
(Rutledge Brothers #2)
Silas and Elijah
MMy Thoughts and Review:
In the second Rutledge Brothers novella, Save Me, we meet Silas and Elijah. Silas Rutledge is an Alpha and also a certified counselor who helps omegas who have suffered emotional trauma.
After the raid on an illegal brothel (book one), the counseling center took in all the omegas that needed the most help. One omega in particular believed everything that had happened to the brothel was wrong. He did not believe he needed any help. He just wanted to go back to work at the brothel. He felt he was only good for one thing and he planned to use his counselor to escape. After all, Alphas were easy to tempt.
While I enjoyed the story, I felt the end was rushed. I would have loved to see the romantic relationship between Elijah and Silas. Instead we meet them, see the seeds plant, watch as Elijah begins to come into himself and then we have an epilogue that takes place two years later. In the epilogue we get commitments, “I Love Yous,” and a minor coming together scene.
***sigh… This one didn’t do it for me the way most P. Scott books do. That being said, Scott’s commitment to characterization and writing style are top notch.
I am looking forward to meeting the third Rutledge triplet. Next book please!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.💋
