More About this Book


Book Description

Reporter Kevin Price has a knack for tripping over his own feet. And everyone else’s. He’s in over his head undercover at the Haven, a swanky gay sex club, determined to find out why members of the club keep vanishing. Five minutes inside and he can no longer deny the truth about his sexuality. He turns to the one man he can’t get out of his head, the sexy ex-cop handling security. Too bad Kevin doesn’t trust cops. Not since the only night he let himself be with another man.

Walter Simon doesn’t do the club scene anymore. Not since he found love and lost it. That doesn’t mean he’ll let anyone hurt more innocent gay men. Even if that means going head-to-head with the klutzy, closeted, much-younger reporter. Kevin has information about the disappearances. Better to keep him close. And safe.

Neither is at the club to hook up or fall in love. Now they must work together amid their growing passion in order to uncover the truth before more men disappear.

Note: How to Save a Life features Walter Simon, a secondary character from MORE, but can be read as a stand-alone story.

Trish at Mrs. Condit Reads Books

"Of all the stories Sloan Parker has written, I believe that 'How to Save a Life' is her best to date. Sloan has woven excitement, intensity and lots of angst, with interesting characters, deep emotions, into an ardent love story... I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy a cryptic, well told love story, with a good twist or two to keep you guessing, and, of course, a happy ending. Thanks, Sloan, for the great read."

"Sloan Parker strikes again with a suspenseful, sexy M/M read ... I can't wait for the next book in The Haven series. Highly recommended reading."

Kazza K at On Top Down Under Book Reviews

"Another outstanding read by one of my favorite authors. I can't wait to see where she goes from here in the series as I have already fallen in love with quite a few of the secondaries in this one."

Cindi at Goodreads

"I found How to Save a Life really enjoyable and a great balance between romance and suspense. Often in books with a mystery or thriller plot, we tend to get either a lot of suspense or a lot of romance and the other side gets shortchanged. But here Parker does a great job giving us both a really nice romance between Walter and Kevin, as well as an exciting and fast-paced story with a great mystery component."

Joyfully Jay

"The engaging main characters are not to be missed ...Sloan Parker has created a stunning saga that I enjoyed immensely."

Chocolate Minx at Literary Nymphs

Golden Blush Award

"I can safely say, without a doubt, that I have loved every one of Sloan Parker’s books and this one is no different... I found this book exciting, suspenseful and most importantly, romantic. The love story between Walter and Kevin is so sweet and real. They have a connection that can’t be denied by either one of them."
