RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in SAVE ME, it’s time for Seamus, the family’s most notorious bachelor, to find true love.
Three weddings. No date. What’s a hot stud to do when all the women on his speed dial are either serving dinner to their families or serving time?
Out of all the O’Briens, Seamus is the best-looking, most creative, and, did I mention, best-looking? Single at almost forty wasn’t a big deal until every sibling in his large and loud Irish family found “the one.” Now, he’s desperate for a wedding date, one he doesn’t have to worry will make out with the limo driver or rob the bride and groom blind.
Allie Mendes is the good daughter, who’s spent her life living in her perfect sister’s shadow. But when her sister steals the man Allie was supposed to marry, that shadow she’s lived in threatens to swallow her whole. Allie wants to believe a bright future awaits. But when she begs God to save her from this disastrous twist of fate, the last person she expects Him to send her is Seamus O’Brien.
Allie needs a stand-in boyfriend to avoid appearing as lonely as she feels. Seamus needs a decent woman without an ankle bracelet or a rap sheet as long as his muscular arms. The two make a deal to pose as each other’s perfect date. But weddings mean romance and a chance at forever neither had planned.
Save Me was really good read. It was a perfect blend of fun and emotions together. It was funny in some parts, that I was laughing out loud and in some others parts it was really sad that I wished to cry out.
Allie and Seamus…. They were just too good. Seamus was such a funny man, his remarks and dialogues made me laugh a lot. Allie was a sweet girl, shy and reserved in parts but she was also the woman who was successful with a booming real estate business. I was able to connect to her character really well. I could feel her emotions as if I am the one experiencing them.
I loved how Allie and Seamus story progressed through fun, heartfelt talks and family gatherings. I also loved O’Brien family, they were one crazy family who made me laugh out loud, but O’Briens loved each other a lot and always had each other’s back.
I had a few problems with this book. The first was Seamus asking Allie to change her appearance. Though Allie liked her new appearance and it gave her more confidence, also he said that she was cute and beautiful even before she changed her appearance. But still I am not in favour of Seamus wanting her to change her appearance. Another thing, Seamus told Allie that maybe because she can’t make a fuck face, that is why the man in front of her can’t unleash himself completely. Though the thing that he did near the end was completely different from what he said, but he still he had said it, and it was something I thought harmed Allie’s self confidence. Though these problems were there but still the good points about this book outweighs whatever bad I felt about it, hence Save Me turned out to be really nice read.
If you are looking for an heartwarming and funny love story, then Save Me would be a really nice choice.
