This book is amazing and left me with a book hangover for sure! I fell in love with the main characters almost immediately, and kept wanting more!
Lyric Hayes reminded me a lot of myself. She was deceived by her fiance and decided to run when she broke it off with him. Deciding she needed a new start, she runs off to Nashville to live with a close friend. She starts a new job and a new life relationship free. With a controlling mother and an ex fiance who cannot take "NO" for an answer, they prove to make that difficult.
David Pearson is everything women want in a man, unfortunately this is a book and he is unrealistic. Needless to say he makes a wonderful book boyfriend! He owns a successful bar, raises his sister after a tragic loss, and loses so much in the process when he chooses his sister over anything else in his life. He is smart, sexy, and puts his family fist and that right there ladies is attractive if you ask me!
When David first lays eyes on Lyric, he cannot get her out of his head. Neither of them were looking for a relationship and when they met they both fell hard. David broke down her walls and was everything she needed. When Lyric keeps a secret from David in order to protect him and their relationship, it backfires on her and he is scared to trust her ever again. Can David forgive Lyric and find his way back to her? Is Lyric so broken by her ex that she will refuse to forgive him as well, or will she do what she does best and run again?
I enjoyed David and Lyric's story and hope there is more to come in the future with them as well as some of the other character's stories. I feel like there is more to be said from Lyric's mother and ex fiance. I feel like some of that was unfinished and would like to hear more from David's best friend and sister as well. There is so much that left me wondering what next?...and I hope I get more very soon!!
About the AuthorI 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!
