Title: Saving Her
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 17, 2015 

 

My heart was crushed by a man who promised me everything and then took it all away. He proved to me that you never really know someone. People lie. Love is meant for fairy tales, not real life. He makes me want to throw caution to the wind. I don’t want love, but I do want Mason Brooks.


Love is a fantasy. Something that people convince themselves is real, but it isn’t. I was taught at a very young age that love is toxic. Since then I have learned to not need anyone. I have a small group of friends but they are given my loyalty. I have no use for love. She is dangerous to me. She makes me wonder what her touch would feel like. Lacey Hunt is toxic to me.

When two people are irreparably broken can they rise from the ashes?
Can love exist in two black hearts?

~ 3.5 I Don’t Know What to Think Stars ~

It pains me to write this, but Saving Her was not my favorite Alexis Noelle book. I have LOVED every book I have read by her but there was just one aspect that I couldn’t wrap my head around. I come to expect certain things from my favorite authors, so when they switch it up…I am completely thrown for a loop. And this book did that to me.

With that said, I did really like this book, up until a certain part. I am not one to spoil major plot twists and turns, just know this one didn’t make me happy. As always I thought the writing was great and I really liked the characters of this story, even Mason, even though he was a supreme jerk in the beginning. I loved the storyline, except for that one part. This book is told primarily from Lacey’s POV but we got a short snippet at the end from Mason’s. This is a short book, so it was a quick read. I will warn you that you will be put through an emotional wringer with this book. Have tissues handy.

I truly believe this book should’ve been titled Saving Him, because I truly felt that this book was more about Lacey Saving Mason, then the other way around. Lacey was married before to a total jerk, ( I totally wanted to junk punch him when he made appearances in this story. ) Scott not only cheated on her but had another family in a town close by…not to mention, this was going on the whole time Lacey and Scott were married. Scott take the word douchebag to a whole other level!!!! Mason has some serious demons from the past which totally messed him up. He doesn’t believe in love, or relationships, and is only up for a one night stand…..that is until he meets Lacey and she shines a light on his darkness. Lacey and Mason were an explosive couple and I truly believed in their connection. It was great watching Lacey bring Mason back into the land of the living and loving.

Just like Protecting Her, Saving Her is a stand-alone book. Even though this isn’t listed as being a part of a series, this book follows along with a group of friends, who are each getting a book. I don’t feel that you need to read the other books of this grouping, but we do see the couple from Keeping Her a lot in this book, because Jules and Lacey are BFF’s.

So if you are a fan of a quick but emotional love story, then this is the book for you. Even though this book didn’t exactly work out for me, don’t hesitate in giving it a try…It might be a 5 star read for you. Even with the curve ball from Alexis with this book, I will still read anything she writes.
