“You can’t save me from me, Holden.” –Dani
Save Me From Me is the latest novel from author Erika Ashby. This story follows Dani Brooks and Holden Reynolds. Fans of Erika’s Timing is Everything Series will remember Holden as Jake Reynold’s cousin.
As the female lead, Dani Brooks is anything but timid and weak. Her family is anything but functional, but she does everything she can to adapt and remain unaffected. This gal is one badass chick. She lives life with little apology and isn’t afraid to (literally) kick some ass. I’m not ashamed to admit I wish she were real so I could be Dani’s friend.
Then there’s Holden. He’s constantly on the road and changes women like he changes towns --- frequently. Like Dani, he speaks his mind and isn’t afraid to go after what he wants. He dreams of getting out from under his father’s rule, and pursuing a career and life based on his wants.
The plot is full of shock, drama, and tons of chemistry. Dani and Holden’s introduction is anything but conventional and left my mouth wide open. It was one of my favorite parts in the novel. Both characters must face the challenges presented by their pasts and families. This story is one of growth, acceptance, and learning to make your happiness top priority. Start to finish, this novel is a quick read that kept me hooked and thoroughly entertained.
If you’re a fan of Erika Ashby’s you’re going to love Save Me From Me. If you haven’t been introduced to her books, do yourself a favor and become familiar with Holden, Dani, and her Timing is Everything Series. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
