Three weddings. No date. What’s a hot stud to do when all the women on his speed dial are either serving dinner to their families or serving time?
Out of all the O’Briens, Seamus is the best-looking, most creative, and, did I mention, best-looking? Single at almost forty wasn’t a big deal until every sibling in his large and loud Irish family found “the one.” Now, he’s desperate for a wedding date, one he doesn’t have to worry will make out with the limo driver or rob the bride and groom blind.
Allie Mendes is the good daughter, who’s spent her life living in her perfect sister’s shadow. But when her sister steals the man Allie was supposed to marry, that shadow she’s lived in threatens to swallow her whole. Allie wants to believe a bright future awaits. But when she begs God to save her from this disastrous twist of fate, the last person she expects Him to send her is Seamus O’Brien.
Allie needs a stand-in boyfriend to avoid appearing as lonely as she feels. Seamus needs a decent woman without an ankle bracelet or a rap sheet as long as his muscular arms. The two make a deal to pose as each other’s perfect date. But weddings mean romance and a chance at forever neither had planned.

I must confess this is my first Cecy Robson book and I can say without a doubt, it will not be my last. I can’t believe I waited this long to pick up one of her books and only to find myself at the end of a series. Oh well, better late than never. I have a lot of catching up to do.
I fell completely and irrevocably in love with Seamus O’Brien. He cracked me up throughout the story. Every time he opens his mouth, I cannot help but laugh. One would not likely classify him as a gentleman due to his lack of filter and his womanizing ways. However, with Allie he was the gentleman he needed to be. Allie is the opposite of the women he dates. She is compassionate, hardworking businesswoman and most importantly she did not have a criminal record. She was a refreshing change.
I loved how he came to her rescue when she needed it most. This unexpected rescue would prove to be life changing not just for Allie but also for Seamus. I enjoyed their interaction from the moment they met. It was funny and heart-warming. Despite them being opposites, they were the perfect match. They brought out the best in each other. Seamus helped Allie realise that she was so much more than her family led her to believe and she helped him to recognise that he was worthy of the love of a good woman.
I loved how Allie stood up to her family after years of being treated like the unworthy daughter and insignificant sister. It was fun watching her discard the plain and meek persona to become a beautiful, sexy and confident woman. Seamus burdened by the pain from his past found the courage to overcome it and in the process opened up his heart to the love of a wonderful woman.
I loved spending time with the O’Brien family. They demonstrated the qualities of a loving family. Allie’s family on the other hand was of the undesirable kind. They hateful, spiteful and selfish. Her sister, Valentina is the worst of the lot. I cannot believe someone as nice as Allie is related to her. Wow, talk about narcissistic.
Save Me is a well-written story, which features a diverse range of characters. Written in alternate POVs it demonstrates that love can be found in the most unlikely of places and at the unexpected of times.
I loved this story and I highly recommend it to fans of funny and heart-warming contemporary romance. I plan to go back and read the other books in the series.
