Book Review
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

We start out the story with Lyric Hayes finding out her college sweetheart/fiance is cheating on her. And the worst part? It's six months after she lost their baby, so it's the deepest betrayal and it's what sends Lyric to Nashville in hopes of finding a better life than what she was dealt. With a new job and new friends, Lyric isn't looking for love. She's sworn against it, but then she meets local bar owner and bartender David Pearson who basically comes out and swoops Lyric up.

I thought this book was really sweet. Lyric is a girl who feels like she's lost so much from life, so she's hesitant to start with something so raw, so new, so fast. David brings he security and safety. He's had a struggle or two in his life. They both have lost and now they both can love whole heartedly, but of course exes come into the mix and miscommunication becomes a strong focal point.

Overall, I'm giving this book 4 STARS out of 5 STARS because it shows us that emotional pain can sear us deep, but it can also help bring us forward. I think this is a light, nice read to curl up with on a rainy day by the fire. I like Stacey Mosteller and I cannot wait to see what more she will bring to the literary world.

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!
