I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Lyric Hayes has run away from her life in Manhattan. Away from her overbearing family and ex-boyfriend. Away from a past she wants to avoid. She is determined to make a new life for herself in Nashville. The moment Lyric meets David Pearson, sparks fly. But, Lyric has a past. And David has secrets too. Falling in love is easy, but learning to love and be loved is the hard part. Lyric and Davids story was such a refreshing read. I loved that character development was such a huge part of this story. The story is real. It is genuine. I found it easy to read as it is so true to real life. As an avid, reader I look for books to grab me from the first page. You become so engrossed in this story. Your heart goes out to Lyric, with a broken past. You feel for David who's past has made him the person he is today. Two people that did not know they needed saving until they met each other.
Oh. David. You captured my heart the moment we met. I swooned. I loved. David is just the epitome of a good book boyfriend. He is charming, intelligent and loves with every fiber of his being. In this world of bad boys this and that, David proves that the good guy wins, in every way possible. He is a southern gentleman that will forever stay in my heart.
“Lyric I know that you are scared, but baby, you have absolutely no reason to be. I Love you darlin'. More than you possibly imagine.”
Save Me From Myself is a fantastic debut. It's about love and loss. Knowing when to let go and move on. But, also knowing when love comes at the most unexpected times, you don't run from it-you run towards it as fast as you can. The author has the ability to allow you to feel the connection to her characters. You will laugh, swoon, and cry over this story. Such a strong debut for this author. I cannot wait to see what else is in store for this series!
I am a 32 year old wife and working mom to 3 boys, ages 15, 13, and 8! After spending the first half of my life in a small town outside of Philadelphia, PA, my parents moved my brother and I to another small town outside of Greensboro, NC. I moved to Hickory, NC after marrying my husband. We dated a total of three months before getting married, and we’d known each other for a total of six! People thought we were crazy, but 2014 marks our 10 year anniversary, so it obviously worked out!
I’ve always been a huge book lover, even though I hated doing book reports in school! I could never figure out the main idea, but I could quote the book word for word. Back in 2012, I found Fifty Shades, and after staying up all night one Friday to read all three books, I was hooked! I started a book blog, and kept reading everything I could. Then, I found Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines, and couldn’t stop reading. My husband told me that I should write my own book since I was spending so much on Kindle books – by June, I’d read over 500! – and after blowing him off for a few months, I decided to try to write the story I kept seeing in my head.
I had an idea for a story about a girl who’d been raised by her brother, but when I started writing, the brother of the main female kept taking over, to the point I was writing things in his POV instead of hers, so I shelved it, and started writing Save Me From Myself instead. I finally told a few fellow book bloggers about my story, and they started encouraging me to finish it, so here we are! It’s been an absolutely insane ride, and I can’t wait to share these characters with everyone!
