Product Description

How do you save someone’s life?

There’s the obvious way of physically saving them from a tragic end.

Then there’s the more subtle way of saving someone who doesn’t know they need to be saved. Someone who is drowning emotionally and has no idea that they are slowly dying.

Ezra Whitmore is one of those people. After tragically losing his wife, he’s still going through the motions, but not really living. All he has now is his son, Spencer, and his career as a dentist. The life he thought he was going to have has been torn apart. The things he had once enjoyed no longer feel the same without the person he had shared everything with.

That is, until Ferris Jenkins crashes into his life. Not only does the lifeguard save his son from literally drowning in the ocean, but he also slowly starts to bring Ezra back to life.

As soon as Ferris lays eyes on Ezra, he can’t get the gorgeous dentist out of his head. He knows nothing will ever happen between them because…well, Ezra is straight and he’s gay. You can imagine Ferris’ surprise when Ezra gets drunk one night, kisses him, and admits that he’s always been attracted to guys. This gives Ferris hope that maybe, just maybe, he can land the man of his dreams.

***Warning: You know the drill! For mature audiences only. Contains some graphic m/m sex scenes. Please remember that this is a work of fiction and comes from my own imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot and yummy 5-star must read!!! 24 May 2016
By M, The book reviewer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was really excited about this book. It's not often I read the blurb of a book and audibly sigh with hearts in my eyes, but How To Save A Life is just that kind of book. It makes you sigh, and laugh, and cry, and get mad (trust me, it's warranted and needed and it makes the story!) and it fills you with this happiness inside your heart that makes you feel completely satisfied. Andria's writing takes on a whole different level of amazing as we get to live through the eyes of Ezra and Ferris, two people who I feel are opposites but fit into each other's lives like two perfectly placed puzzle pieces.

Ezra Whitmore makes me smile one of those smiles that just completely takes over your face. Not only is he this young, hot dentist, but the kind of dad he is to Spencer (who in his own right is this phenomenal and pivotal character) is just unbelievably profound. He loves his son, accepts his son, and is everything a father and friend should be. There is nothing hotter than a man being a dad and Ezra is the epitome of fatherly perfection. Le sigh, right??? Unfortunately, at the same time, he's a grieving husband who has lost his spark after his wife dies. It's not until an accident on the shores of Jersey that you start to see a glimmer of light in Ezra's eyes in the form of lifeguard Ferris Jenkins.

Ferris just amazes me. With his family torn apart the way it is, you'd never think that a guy like him would be a survivor. He's genuine, sweet, a confidant, a safe haven and a real live superhero. Sure, during the day he saves Spencer from drowning, but it's his night job as a counselor for LGBT youth that really impacts who he is. He helps kids accept who they are with no strings and helps them find a safer environment when their own families reject them, much like his own family did to him. Legit. Superhero! After Spencer comes out to his dad, Ferris takes him under his wing and ultimately opens Ezra up to the feelings he's kept buried for years.

Watching Ezra finally light up and love again, and seeing Ferris finally getting to make amends with his past is completely breathtaking when you add in their undeniable chemistry that had me swooning and panting. It's insta-love mixed with that soul binding love nestled deep within that's so rare for people to find but these two just have it. One that helps bring back Ferris to his family and helps Ezra be his true self for the first time in a long time. Sure, this book has its obstacles, but it's about getting through them together, being happy, and ultimately, acceptance.

"Then Ferris came along and changed everything. He saved me when I didn't even know I needed saving. He pulled all of the pieces of my life back together and stitched them up, adding his own patch to it"

If you have yet to read anything by Andria Large, How To Save A Life is the perfect place to start, and if you're reading her again, then you get to experience another outstanding work of art. It's amazing, worthy of that happy one-click finger, and it will open you up to a happier kind of an HEA. #TeamFEZRA FTW!

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, sweet story.... 18 October 2016

***3.75 stars***

If you are in the mood for a feel good book, this is it. This is such a beautiful and sweet story of loss, finding oneself and second chances. I have truly fallen for these characters and my heart went out to Ezra and Ferris. It was nice to read how Ezra finally lets his true self shine. Not to mention, how his friendship with Ferris grows and blossoms into something much, much more.

Not only does Farris help Spencer, Ezra's son with his coming out, but also gives Ezra his second chance with love. My only wish is that the author make this a series and continue on with Spencer and Jesse's story.

This is a new author for me and I cannot wait to read other books by her. Thanks for the find Bookbub!

I discovered AL with Christian Beck's story, which I enjoyed a lot, then I fell in love with the War trilogy. This book is a sweet fairy tale of a story and it made me feel good reading it. Angst is minimal and pretty quickly resolved, the characters are pretty like-able (I hope Spencer's story is in the works??), and the man-on-man action is pretty hot. I don't mean fairy tale in the literal sense. I just mean that there is an HEA in every aspect of the story, and I think it felt 'shallower' than the War books, but I totally dug it. It fit my mood, and I wish everyone could have the same joy that these MCs have in their lives. I really like AL's m/m stories and I hope she has many more on her roster. (I am not a fan of the tense used, but once I got into the rhythm of the story, it became less annoying).

By Stacy Mitchell - Published on

If you've read the other reviews, you'll learn that Ezra spends most of the book denying who he is. While I found it frustrating, I gave it five stars because he continuously keep showing strength of character when it mattered the most. Most of the teens who live on the street are there because they are gay and have been rejected by their parents. When Ezra's son told him that he was gay, Ezra both supported him and stood up for him eve though he was afraid to stand up for himself.

I read this book after I read How to Save Love. I loved reading about the beginning of Ferris and Ezra's relationship. Both had a lot to overcome in regards to the familial relationships and in their relationship with each other. Ferris' interactions with Spencer were so touching and possibly my favorite part of this book. I definitely enjoyed this book very much.
