Took me a while to figure out that Jason was the Jason from the Kingwood Duet. He was so different from the guy in that series. Sure, there were hints of "Eric" that were there, but I never connected the dots until Jason had a visitor and a job offer. Call me surprised when I put all the pieces together.

This was a sweet second-chance romance. Jason heads home trying to figure out what he does next with his life. His intent may have been to hide out at his mom's until he knew what he wanted to d

4 sweet and swoony second-chance stars

This is a super sweet, feel-good read with a swoony second-chance-romance and very little angst. A perfect guilty pleasure read if you’re after something light and easy with lots of emotion, and I really enjoyed it.

There is no comfort to be given from one who knows no comfort.
Can I be a man who provides solace when I can’t find my own?

Jason is man who has lost his way. He left his small-town home three years previously after having his heart broken, and f

This book was everything. And by everything, I mean EVERYTHING. I didn't think I could love S.L. Scott anymore but I was wrong. After reading the Kingwood Duet I didn't think I could love characters more than Alexander and Sarah Jane. I was wrong. I LOVED Jason and Delilah.

We first met Jason in the Kingwood Duet. He was mysterious. He kept things close to his heart and appeared cold. You only saw the fragmented pieces of him. In Solace he isn't cold. He is delightful. He is

"I did more than break my heart. I broke yours, and that's harder to live with."

I met Jason in the author's Kingwood series. I knew he was running from something, but I didn't know what. I knew he had a heart, even though he didn't show it often. I also knew he liked Oreos. Everything else was a mystery that I couldn't wait to solve. Solace couldn't come soon enough for me, I was chomping at the bit to spend some more time with Jason. And let me tell you, now that I have, I admit he surprise

SOLACE is a very beautifully written second chance romance between two high school sweethearts. Jason "SWOON" Koster is so SEXY, BAD A** GENTLEMAN. I first meet Jason in SL's Kindwood duet Savage and Savior as a bad a** take no s*i* from anyone who sat in the background.
In SOLACE we get to see Jason in the world he once fit in. Delilah is a sweet beautiful small town girl.

Jason melted my heart and body in all the best ways possible! I loved this second chance, super swoony romance from SL Scott! Jason had me smiling and moaning throughout the whole book! I couldn't get enough of him. My heart and body ached for these characters. At times I wanted to throw my kindle. That's the great thing about SL Scott's writing. She makes you feel all of the feels!

Solace by S.L Scott was a beautifully written second chance romance and I loved it.

The storyline was emotional, sweet, romantic and brought out all the feels. The drama was well done, it keep my attention and kept me turning the pages.
Jason and Delilah were likable, endearing, passionate characters and captured my heart with their story.


Overall, Solace is an emotional and heartfelt read by S.L Scott and I highly recommend it.

We first met Jason in Savage and saw quite a bit more of him in Savior. He was mysterious and I wasn’t sure if he was a good guy or not. I wasn’t sure if I really liked him. All that changed with Solace. When he goes home we get to see who he truly is. He puts his past and all the bad things he did to rest and opens himself up. We see a whole new side to Jason. He is sweet, romantic, helpful, funny and kind to most everyone around him.

Besides Solace, Jason just needed Faith and a reason to stay!

I love when this happens: when I finish a book and find myself speechless, in awe, still swooning and having a hard time to write a review and start a new book. It's when I can't seem to say goodbye!

That's exactly how I'm feeling right now! Jason and Delilah were everything! They were so in synk, so connected, their chemistry was amazing and their feelings were raw, pungent, real and so so real!

My curiosity about Jason Koster was piqued when I met him in the Kingwood duet so I was more than a little excited to dive into his story. Combining my curiosity about this character and the second chance romance trope I was more than all in.

After being gone from his hometown for years, Jason finds himself drawn back. And that draw is more than just a visit with his mother even though he doesn't understand it at first. I loved watching his interactions with his mom and see flashbacks from his p

SL Scott veered off course in a new direction from Savage and Savior. Jason’s bike went to a place I wasn’t expecting. Her previous two books were suspenseful and darker. Solace shows you the other side of how someone gets to that place. It reveals how human nature and premature thoughts and ideas can be misconstrued and send you off course. Fortunately, that bike can be bring you back to where you belong. Solace is what each one of us is looking for in life at one time or another. This book doe ...more

First off I have to say how much I absolutely loved the Kingwood Duet series by S.L. Scott. It was an incredible story that just drew you in and gutted you. This is where we first meet Jason. I have to say I didn't like Jason at all in this series. There was just something about him that rub me the wrong way. I have to say I have changed my mind. Solace is Jason's story and what a story it is. I fell in love with Jason in the first chapter. He was so heart broken over losing the love of his life ...more

I went into this story blind all I knew was that it was a second chance love story ( which I love ). It took me awhile but once I realised who the male bbf was I did a happy dance.
As I was surprised I know others will want to be too so I’m not going to mention specifics of the storyline trust me it’s better that way.
Jason and Delilah were high school sweethearts they were the couple that everyone in their small town thought would make it together but they don’t —-> uh uh not telling why.

I didn't believe it was possible to make me like, let alone care about, Jason Koster. We first meet Jason in the Kingwood Duet but there, he's a mystery. He's just a man who passes through lives never really connecting. There's a story there. A story as to who the man is, the man he was, and the man he's meant to be.

Solace is a journey of not only a man searching for his destiny, but a woman searching for her forever. Jason and Delilah are epic romance. Their love is pure, it is all encompass

Jason Koster is a swoon worthy bad boy who I first met in the Kingwood Duet. He is a man that made me want to know more about him. Solace is a second chance romance and Jason is so worth getting his second chance.

Delilah Noelle is a woman who doesn't know what to think when Jason comes back to their hometown. She is conflicted with what has happened in the past and even the present.

Will they find their way back to each other? Can love truly overcome all things? Solace is a thing they both dese

Oh my goodness. I was so happy to know that Jason was getting his own book after reading about him in Savage and Savior. I was curious about him and wasn't ready to say goodbye to him just yet. This story was so beautifully written by Suzy. It was perfect with tiny parts where you see his past come to play and make you smile knowing it worls so well with the story. He found his reason to stay. 💙

This second chance romance is phenomenal. I love Jason! He's such a bad boy with a heart of gold. He's caring and loyal. Betrayal and lies ruin his first chance at happiness, but he's back for his second chance. He isn't walking away without a fight this time. The story is full of surprises. It's beautiful and entertaining. I loved it!

OMG 💕. I love Jason. He was so different from the Kingwood series and it made you understand more or why he was the way he was, if that makes sense. In this book Jason was/is such a sweetheart and he tells it how it is and how he is feeling.

This is one of the sweetest second chance romance I've ever read. It gave me all the feels. I loved it so much!

Jason Koster was royalty in his small town. He was the hometown hero, football star, homecoming king, and over all good guy. He thought he had it all. That is until the girl he was so madly in love with, the girl he thought was his forever breaks up with him. He leaves for college and later finds out he's lost the girl for good, so what's the point of coming back. A series of odd jobs l

5 "Honeysuckle" Stars!!!

Ever since Jason was introduced in 'Savage' I fell hard. I needed to know EVERYTHING about him. He was so mysterious and intriguing. He had this aura about him that was addicting. I was spellbound by Jason, and I didn't want the spell to dissipate.

Jason is plagued by demons. There's so much darkness deeply embedded inside himself. Ghosts from his past surround him. No matter how far and wide, there is no amount of dis

This story was a fantastic second-chance romance. The author's words were beautiful and moving. It was interesting to see a totally different side to the mysterious Jason Koster, who featured in the Kingwood Duet.

"My home was never a place, but a person."

Jason has rolled back into his hometown on his sexy Harley, with his life complicated and his soul troubled. He doesn't plan on making his visit a long one. However, when he finds out that his high school sweetheart is no longer married

This was not just a love story. It is a tale about fate, destiny, the mystery of the heart and emotions in which it is wrapped, and about how our heart is designed and shaped like two mirrored halves because we are only a half until the other part of our most precious organ is found. That what is Delilah and Jason's beautiful story is about. Their youthful budding romance, just on the cusp of something remarkable, is pierced by the dark, scheming selfish evil of a supposed best friend, Cole, who ...more

I've been waiting for this book since I finished Savage and Savior. And it did not disappoint. If I could give it more stars I would. I was sucked in from the beginning and I really hated the adult moments that popped up during the day. Solace had my heart the whole way through. You feel it all in this book and hang onto those emotions all the way through. Such a beautiful journey. Solace is an amazing second chance romance.

This book exceeded all my expectations plus more. I was hooked on the very first page. I sat down and read this unforgettable book all the way through.

Have you read the Kingwood duet yet? Then STOP! Read them first, I implore you! Okay, don’t want to listen to me? Whatever, you can certainly read Solace as a standalone, but trust me, you’ll get so much more out of this book if you read the Kingwood duet first. It will really give you a chance to meet Jason and Let you understand a little better why he is the way he is.

SOLACE by S.L. Scott is a wonderful Second-Chance Romance that takes place in a small town. Although it can be quite readily read as a standalone novel, we have met the character Jason in her Kingwood Duet Series. In that series I don't even think I liked the character Jason/Eric. But in Solace I loved the character Jason. In the Duet I really liked the couple Alexander and Sarah Jane. In Solace I love the couple Jason and Delilah.
