This short story is a mindless entertainment – and I mean that statement in a POSITIVE way. Look, sometimes, I need a story that is not too heavy, not too serious ... a story that’s just cheeky & fun, that can make me chuckle or giggle along the way. Saving Sam is exactly that.

The plot is exactly what is written in the book summary – but the idea of God being a Hippie, and Lucifer is in female form called Lucy, as well as quite a number of wonderful one-liners and banter exchanged between Zeke a

Yeah I guess this is sort of cute story of the upper and holy beings.
Thank you for recommending this, Ami! :)

I enjoyed the hell out of this book. (I swear – that’ll be the only pun I use.)

To begin with, I drooled over the cover. A smoking hot dude and an adorably sweet looking guy with wings? Yes, please. Judging a book by it’s cover – come on – we all do it - I assumed which one was Sam and which one needed saving. I couldn’t have been more wrong about the characters or the storyline. The moment God appeared as a hippy (“Just call me Steve.”), I realized: this is why they say not to do that judgy-thin

I think I may have mentioned in previous posts about Nikka Michael’s books how much I love her words. Her imagination never ceases to amaze me. She creates a world for her characters and plants me slap bang in the middle of it as soon as I’ve read the first few opening paragraphs. The sensation of being transported to a different realm was a bit stronger in Saving Sam than it has been in Michael’s contemporary stories. Purgatory was a real place within moments after I started this book and the s ...more

Maybe it's just me but this one ended up on the "Meh" list ... not *quite* a wall banger but close. Yes, there was some interesting world building and moments of cuteness -- bit of an original take on zombies, too -- but just not enough to bring it up another star. Oh sure, there was plenty of hot sex but I don't think I'd go so far as to call it a romance between the MCs, more like a lust-fest with a bit of a "crush" thrown in. Certainly not love, I don't think that was even mentioned by either ...more

I did like the characters. Sam and Ezekiel had great chemistry together. The action was good but there were a lot of holes in the plot.

This is such an adorable little story. I needed a break from my "serious" reading, and this was perfect. It was lighthearted and campy, which was just what I needed.

A very cute story with an interesting take on God, the Devil, and angels and demons. I really enjoyed it.

Saving Sam was a great little novella. I liked the world building that I saw here and the overall premise. Sam and Zeke are both interesting. I'm looking forward to the other stories in this series.
