Lyric Hayes spent the first 22 years of her life trying to be the perfect daughter and the perfect girlfriend. After a tragedy and her fiance’s betrayal, she's running. Starting over far away from the person she used to be.
She's made herself a vow - no relationships. She's trying to heal, not complicate her life further. David Pearson has it all. Confidence, awesome friends, successful business. But, David's dealt with loss too. He knows better than anyone not to judge by what's on the surface. Drawn to Lyric despite her inability to trust, he'll do anything to own her heart. Will secrets and misunderstandings send Lyric running again? Or will David finally save her from herself?  

I love when I read a book by a new author and it’s a well-written and well told story.  As a reviewer I read my fair share of books that are great and some that are terrible and a lot of “meh” in between, but I’m convinced that 2014 is going to be a very good year for fiction, because I have been lucky enough to read so many great books this year, and it’s only February!  I’m happy to include this book in that sentiment, because I enjoyed it quite a bit!
Lyric has been beat down by past relationships, and she’s never been able to fully appreciate the wonderful things about herself and chose roads that will lead to her happiness.  She moves from Manhattan to Nashville in order to escape her past and this is where she meets hunky bartender David (SWOON!).  David has had his own share of heartbreak, but something about Lyric draws him in.  He wants to get her to trust him, and sets about trying to do just that.  But a series of misunderstandings and a few secrets prove to be a roadblock to their happily ever after.  Can they make it work and embrace the future instead of letting the past continue to dictate their lives?
First, the absolute best part of this book is David.  I mean, he is everything that book boyfriend should be.  He makes you lament the fact that if there is a man on this earth that actually exists like him, you should be devastated that you haven’t met him yet!  He is great. A gentleman with an ease about himself that screams “confidence!” and man has he got swagger!  He’s sweet and gentle, but he has limits and Lyric manages to test those limits! He’s a great character.
The sex in this book is also a big plus.  If you’re looking for a panty-melting read, then this is your book.  The chemistry between Lyric and David is awesome, and now considered yourself warned that there are some very sexually explicit scenes in this book…oh yes.  Yes, there are. 
This book is apparently the first in a series about a group of friends, and I will definitely be picking up the next book.  This is an engaging read with great characters and great writing.  It’s not the most original storyline in the world, but sometimes it’s nice to just pick up a book that is well done and not too challenging.  You know what you’re getting into with this one, and I enjoyed it for its simplicity and solid story!  4 stars.

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!
