* JMAC'S REVIEW *
 
 
I really enjoyed Save Me from Myself.
I loved Lyric's character.  After finding out that her fiancĂ© has been lying to her, she does the only thing she knows, RUNS. 
Lyric winds up moving in with her best friend, and former college roommate.  While she's in a new city, she makes a vow to herself that she will not bother with relationships, or men for that matter. 
She is content with working, and hanging out with friends.  After all the tragedy and heartbreak Lyric had to deal with, she's over feeling that way, and won't let another man close enough to even try to make her feel any type of way. 
Well, that is until David. 
Before I talk about David, let me say, I'm obsessed with southern guy characters!!!! I just love it!
Back to the sexy, delicious, southern David. 
Yeah, he's perfect.
Lyric met David at a bar, the bar that David happens to own.
While he's the sexiest man on the planet, that doesn't phase Lyric because she's done with falling for guys.
It turns out fate just wants these two together. 
I love love loved Lyric and David's story. 
They went through their ups and downs, hurt each other, made up.
I don't want to give anything away, but Stacey you left me wanting so much more girl!
I finished the book NEEDING more of David and Lyric.
What I loved most about this book was the characters.  Lyric and David's friendships were just an awesome addition to the book.  I felt such a connection to not only David and Lyric, but everyone else too.
It goes without saying that I really enjoyed this book. 
Stacey I can't wait to read more from you!

About The Author

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!
