~ 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.
