Oh, David…. Dreamy sigh….

I guess I can’t just review David so I’d better start about the actual book!

The book starts with Lyric. Firstly, what an awesome name! She is running away from her troubled past in Manhattan – away from her sleazy ex and her controlling mother, to make a new life in Nashville. I love Lyric. She’s been through so much and is trying her very best to come out the other side. She’s cute, shy and at first a little timid. Sometimes I wanted to yell at her to believe in herself

From the time that I opened the book on my kindle, I was engrossed by Lyric's story. A tale of heartbreak, picking up the pieces, new romance, as well as huge arguments is what Save Me From Myself consists of. And where do I begin with David? David is what a woman envisions every southern gentleman to be. Charming, funny, and down to earth makes a perfect combination for a woman to fall head over heels in love. Lyric does not go looking for love, but love went looking for her.

I loved this book!
David Pearson is one of the best book boyfriends ever! He's handsome, a gentlemen, sexy as hell, with a southern drawl that will have you quivering "darlin'"
Lyric is so sweet and loyal and scorned by a man!

When their paths cross, Lyric is taken back by his sweet southern charm, but has decided that a relationship just isn't what she needs after the long hell she just ran away from. But she's unable to resist David and all his gentlemanly ways! Lyric gets put in the middle of

Who said nice guys finish last? Well, whoever they were..they were idiots. From the starters, you meet Lyric, a woman who has never fully embraced how amazing she is, I find that completely identifiable. She has been brow beaten into accepting less than she deserves. Her last relationship brutalized her, it left something broken that I would have believed could not be fixed. Well, I was wrong. Enter stage left, David. Oh man. This delicious man is exactly what Lyric needs to heal those wounds. D ...more

Summarized Review:

A light, entertaining read. Swoony male lead. A heart/broken, insecure girl in need of healing.
Combined: Totally right for each other.

If you are looking for sexy romance, with a light amount of angst a sexy male lead and cool supporting characters, this is it. The book is a great debut, and an awesome start to the series!


Writing: 4 stars. Minor mistakes here and there, specially punctuation and common grammar errors.

Save Me From Myself is book 1 of 4 in the "Nashville Nights" series by Stacey Mosteller. This is also Stacey Mosteller's debut book and what an excellent book it is!

This is a story of love, loss, angst, starting over and second chances. Lyric and David had each endured a tragic event in their past lives which helped shape their views on love and trust.
Lyric had been to hell and back with a past relationship that once she finished her college degree, she moved to Nashville to escape her life in

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 Pea

The book begins with Lyric; such a great name- and her sister is Aria. I am thinking her family loves music! She is getting away from her past in Manhattan – away from her crazy cheating ex and her controlling mother, to make a new life in Nashville.

She is a great heroine, strong, sweet, and sassy! She’s been through so much and is trying her very best to stay positive and not let the negative things in her life take it over. At first, she seems a little introverted, but then I feel li

Save Me From Myself (SMFM) is book 1 of 4 in the "Nashville Nights" series. It is also Stacey Mosteller's debut book.

My thoughts: This is a wonderfully down-to-earth story about starting over & getting a second chance at love despite past baggage. Lyric & David are very smart, lovable & relatable characters, qualities, insecurities and faults alike (yes, David has faults too!). The secondary characters are also wonderful and I look forward to reading about their own lives in the oth

I absolutely loved this book right from the very beginning.

Lyric found herself re-starting her life in Nashville after she experienced a horrible, heart-sharttering accident and betrayal. Lyric was privileged and had a relatively easy life and had an amazing best friend; however, she had very low self-esteem.

David fell into Lyric's life and had her intrigued from the very first impression. David, who was a bar owner, was fun, caring, and sexy who like all good guys had a protective nature about

Save Me From Myself is the story of Lyric, a New York transplant who finds herself in Nashville starting a new life after dumping her ridiculously douchy fiancé. Of course, because she is not looking for love, it finds her in the form of sexy southern bartender David.

I really enjoyed this story. David, oh David why do I have to be married? Anyways, Lyric has had a very rotten time in the romance department. Her ex is truly a one of a kind a**hole and her mother has problems dealing with their break up. I have to tell you while reading this book I was actually talking to the book as well lol... like a friggin sailor! Lyric deserves a good man and enters David *sigh* This man does not exist on our realm ladies or I would have found him ;) Kind, Considerate,

Save Me From Myself is a debut book by Stacey Mosteller and it is book 1 of a 4 book series, which I have marked all to be read. For a first time author, this book HIT IT!!!

So you know when a book is good right from the prologue, and this had it. I love a book that has loss, love, angst, jealous ex-lovers ending and a do-over. We start off with Lyric walking in on her finance, Matt having sex with his co-worker Kimberly. Lyric has suffered terrible loss, and catching

Lyric opens her eyes to her lowlife boyfriend Matt. She leaves NYC, grows stronger, falls in love with..David! David, tho is older than Lyric, he falls for her. He is dealing with the death of his parent, 5 years before, raising his younger sister. Drama happens with the sister, causing Lyric to put her feelings for David on the back burner.

I did truly like this story.

Good start to a series. Lots of hot scenes. David and Lyric heat up this book. I loved the way that David treated her. He did make me mad near the end, but he did tell her that he didn't like secrets. We get most of the book from Lyric's point of view. However, there are a few scenes where we get David's point of view. No cliffhanger.
Why did it have to end????
I absolutely loved this book and I can't wait for next book!
Even though I liked SB, I knew that was happening and I was already a bit suspicious about her being a closet little bitch haha I hope she gets redemption...
David is definetly book boyfriend material!!

After reviewing book 4, I had to start at the beginning.
Fell hard for the two main characters.
Both of them looking for a new part to their lives, but carrying with

them suitcases full of emotional baggage.
'Darlin' sends a shiver down my spine, David is so hot and Lyric falls for him hard.
The question is will they be able to save each other ?

- I received an ARC for an honest review -

Wonderful start to a new series set in Nashville! Stacey introduces her readers to a group of friends that will hopefully all get books. SMFM focuses on Lyric and David. Lyric's been burned by a bad relationship, amongst other things, and leaves NYC in hopes of a fresh start. I don't want to give away too much from the book, but she meets David, a sweet and swoon worthy bartender.

This was a fun, engaging read, and I'd definitely recommend it! Can't wait

This book grips you from the beginning with the depth of Lyric and David’s characters. Right at the beginning we read about the betrayal Lyric’s fiancé bestows upon her….carrying on an affair. The reader gets a glimpse into Lyric’s character by the next line:

I was sucked right in from page one! The perfect story about being in the right place at the right time.

Lyric- oh girl, she has been through so much in such a short period of time. I can clearly see her fleeing the state of New York like a fugitive! Even had the Mission Impossible music in my head. It was frustrating that her first reaction was to run- never to confront or even stand up for herself. To live her life as she wants to she is going to have to get better at this- or be run o

Save Me from Myself was a sweet story about insecure Lyric and one drop dead gorgeous, uber sexy David.

When life becomes unbearable in New York Lyric decides to flee and head south to Nashville. Having just gotten out of a toxic relationship Lyric is set on not looking for love, but to start her life over. To do something that makes her happy and to focus on herself.

Lyric Hayes reminded me a lot of myself. She was deceived by her fiance and decided to run when she broke it off with him. Deciding she needed a new start, she runs off to Nashville to live with a close friend. She starts a new job and a new life relationship free.

I went in to this story totally blind, without any expectations and right from the beginning I absolutely loved it! It was a refreshing change to read a book about two genuinely nice people with no hidden agendas or bad traits.

Lyric found herself re-starting her life in Nashville after suffering a heart-breaking accident and a shocking betrayal, not expecting or even wanting to fall in love. Although she had led a privileged life she was easy going and a fantastic friend to have but

“Please don't leave," she whispers. Her voice is barely audible and when I hesitate she hurriedly says, "Never mind, I'll be okay. You don't have to stay."

Her softly spoken words make the decision for me, and as I slip my shoes and socks off, I grin at her. "Darlin', if you want me here, I'm not going anywhere.”
