Publication date: 13th December 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis: Dani refuses to lose another parent due to her absence from their life. After pulling herself back together following the death of her father, she moves back to her childhood town to live with her mom. She’s slowly pulled back into the lifestyle she worked so hard to get away from ten years ago. She accepts that this is the life she has always been destined to live. Getting a job at the store down the road and hooking back up with her first love Gage, seems to be the logical way to go…that is until she meets Holden Reynolds.

Now that Holden is finally back home from the Navy he plans on following in his father’s footsteps. Still trying to move on from the one woman who had his heart, he busies himself in work and returning to the country boy lifestyle he’s always loved. The best way to get over someone is to get under someone, right? That’s his mindset as he travels town to town with his job perfectly content with being a rambling man…that is until he meets Danielle Brooks.

When Dani isn't leaving and Holden isn't staying will they be able to keep themselves from getting too attached? Or will they be just what each other needs to cut all the strings that have them bound?

“You can’t save me from me, Holden.” -Dani

I was really looking forward to reading this book when I first found out about it, as it sounded like the sort of book I was going to love! And love it I did! This book was so beautiful! I will admit that it took me two attempts to really get into it when I first started reading, but I'm so happy I didn't put it down! It just got better and better as I read on! The characters, the plot, everything about this book just made me fall completely in love with it! The plot of this book was so emotional! I cried like a baby at the end, I smiled at the little things and I got mad as secrets unfolded! The plot was written brilliantly and I just couldn't stop reading it! It did take me a few chapters to get into it, but once I did, I couldn't get through it fast enough! It was amazing and had me hooked! The characters were amazing! Dani was the main female character and I just adored her! I loved that she wasn't afraid to speak her mind and she told people straight how she felt! My heart went out to Dani in this book as she went through so much and yet she tried so hard to stay strong! I admired her so much for that! Dani put other peoples feelings before her own, which meant that she rarely did what she really wanted to! I loved that her love interest showed her that she had to put herself first and other people second! Holden was the love interest of Dani and he was deliciously hot! He had also been through a lot and then he went through quite a lot in this book! I don't think he went through as much as Dani, but his story tugged at my heartstrings just as much! Holden showed Dani what it was like to live again, but he also showed her just how much love could hurt! My heart fluttered and broke as I read Dani and Holden's story, but it was so beautiful and full of real love! I loved that this book was written from both Dani and Holden's point of views as it made it more interesting and I loved getting to go inside both of their heads! There was a love triangle in this book between Dani, Holden and Gage! I was definitely Team Holden, but I did like Gage! Well, until I discovered his secret! The love triangle played a big part in the story, but it wasn't that big a part that makes you roll your eyes! It was perfect and added a lot to the story! I normally enjoy like triangles, but I've read a few recently that have let me down, so I'm really happy that I enjoyed the one in this book! I can completely understand why this book is a standalone! The ending was absolutely beautiful and had me crying like a baby! I do have to see that I could see a novella for Dani and Holden, but it's definitely not necessary! The cover for this book is beyond stunning! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! I'm definitely going to have to get it in paperback! Big thank you to Erika for an ARC of Save Me From Me and to Enticing Journey Book Promotions for having me on the Blog Tour!
