It was nice to see a May-December romance with the woman being the older of the two. Yes, older women have a lot to offer even if the number age is more than her partner’s. In the same vain it was refreshing to see that a sexy, good looking younger man could see what his older partner could offer him. They both were able to teach the other that there is always growing that personally needs to be and can be done at any age.

Brandon came into Kimberly’s life when she needed him most. Brandon had kn

I have yet to read a Jade C. Jamison book that I didn't love and this one is certainly no exception.

In this May-December romance Kimberly is the older one in the relationship. She's endured a divorce and the death of her oldest son. When Brandon knocks on the door claiming to be a friend of her late son she's eager to help him out. Soon enough she finds herself attracted to him. She can't help but be concerned about the age difference and what her two kids will think.

When she and Brandon finally

Jade takes a story about a May-December romance and knocks it out of the park with her beautiful writing style, the intricate storyline, and the amazing characters she pens to life that she not only has you read about them, but she always makes you feel like you are present in the story, right in the room with them... Well done again and again!

In this amazing story, not only does she deliver in the Hot Hot Hotness factor as usual, but she gives us a very very deep story with

In a huge step away from her rockers, Ms Jamison bring us this beautiful May to December romance.

And what a way to move away from her norm.

To Save Him is a beautiful, poignant story about love, loss and finding yourself again.

A big plus for me with Kimberly and Brandon's story is that for once, finally, it is an older woman with a younger man. Sure, we get it occasionally but most of the time it is an older guy chasing the younger woman.

I was lucky enough to get to read an advanced copy of this book and having read almost all of this author's library of work, I have to say it was very different but with some flashes of herself still in there. Usually when I read a May-December romance the man is always the older one with some innocent young woman as his obsession...not so here as we are given not only a younger man, but one who happens to be someone who knew the woman's son in combat and who was left scarred and broken.

The story line is so different than anything Jade has written before. I really enjoyed reading.
I got to the point where I didn't know what was going to happen and I was doubting everything! I had to keep reading. I didn't want to put the book down.
It took me out of my comfort zone a little with the little bit with the BDSM, but who doesn't like being taken out of their comfort zone? I couldn't stop reading. Put this one on your TBR list and make sure you read it!

5 Sexy and Emotional Stars for To Save Him

Wow! I don't even know where to start this review. As usual, anything by Ms. Jamison is worth a read. This one is a bit different for her, but completely compelling. Brandon shows up at Kimberly's door, to deliver a last message from her son who had died in the Marines. He seems lost, and, at first, her motherly instincts kick in, and she insists, with the approval of her other children, that he stay while he figures out where he wants to go and what he

I have read a few of Jade's books in the past and when I was given the opportunity to read and review her latest book, a book that is not her normal rocker style, I jumped at the chance. To Save Him is a mix of genre's in my opinion. I had elements of BDSM, suspense and the military all wrapped up in this refreshingly sexy romance. I love the fact that the leading lady was older. It is not often that we see the leading female character portrayed as the older one in the friendship/relationship. I ...more

Author: Jade Jamison Date Finished: 6/12/16

Wow, wow, wow.
What an all-encompassing emotional read.
Your foreword makes total sense, first off you think it’s just an older woman having improper thoughts about her deceased son’s friend, but he is certainly not giving those vibes.
Kimberley, (Kim) mum to three children, in her late 40’s, is getting on with her life as an Author, after a humiliating break up and divorce.

Oh my goodness this is one of the best books I have read this year. Jade C Jamison has outdone herself with this amazing offering.

At times I wasn't sure what genre of book I was reading and whilst this sounds like the story would be disjointed and not work, it most certainly wasn't and it did. The twists and turns, the suspense, the hot sex scenes and the amazingly written characters all add up to a riveting and captivating read.

Jade's books really don't fit into any specific genre so sometimes I have difficulty. She has a knack of putting you directly into the characters' heads. This December/May romance has nothing to do with rock stars and everything to do with a divorced mother raising her children the best she can after receiving blow after blow by life. Kimberly was just merely existing and doing her best while trying to live and raise 2 children when Brandon appears on her doorstep. Brandon was in the Marines wit ...more

I have read a few books by Jade C. Jamison and “To Save Him” was different from the other books she has written.

To Save Him is unlike anything else that Jade C. Jamison has written. I really enjoyed reading this book. There is a HEA at the ending of this book and it is a Standalone.

It is classified as a dark romance but, for me it isn’t too dark. I think it is because some of the content. There is nothing too graphic as to the element of torture and it just adds to this story line. I can’t go

Rating: 4.5 Stars

To Save Him is a great romance story about family and friendship. This is a unique take on a May- December romance. I loved that the heroine was older and yet was still sexy and fun.

Kimberly is a single mom and romance author, who experienced more than her fair share of grief in her life. Her husband left her for a younger Barbie type. Her son was killed in a mission while serving in the Marines. She was not living, she was simply going through the motions for her other child

This was an amazing book that had me guessing what would happen next. When Brandon showed up at Kimberly's house he brought memories of her son killed in service. Feeling a connection and realizing Brandon needed her help, she invited the man so much younger than her to stay with her and her two other kids. What transpired between them was unexpected but the attraction so strong. Could anything become of them as a couple when they both had baggage from a painful past and she was so much older? E ...more

I love Jade's writing but for some reason I couldn't get into this one! I think the beginning could have been much shorter as I found my mind wandering at times.

Having said that, I loved the story and the issues involved. This was totally plausible in every respect...the pain of PTSD, government's treatment, and a hot May to December romance. While "the program" would seem to be extreme, I have no doubt in my mind these tortures exist somewhere...maybe not Canada or America but definitely in som

So …. Im not sure really how to review this one because it was not my normal read. For some reason some of the incidents I found not settling with me. I don’t know if it was because it involved a man who claims he served with Kimberly’s son and what occurred after … I just don’t know. It was a whirlwind of things I think. The younger man older woman thing did not bother me at all … again I think it was the preface of who Brandon was and that he appears at her doo

Jade is and always will be my rock and roll Queen, so when I got this story in my hands, it was quite the surprise. She completely stepped out of her norm, and created a story that was completely unique, sexy and sometimes tearful.

Kimberly is a single mother and romance novelist. She spends her days according to plan, which has become somewhat of a boring routine. So when a stranger by the

I love reading anything by Jade C Jamison, she is a fantastic author and having fun with her writing shows in all of her books. Her newest book, To Save Him, only made me more excited to read her newest book. Just reading the title you can see Jade decided to branch out of her comfort zone. And let me tell you she didn't disappoint, she did an amazing job!!!

The star of this story is JR, Kimberley's son. He is adorable,especially when it comes to "what's for dinner,Mum". Brandon has been through a lot,serving his country and coming home with PTSD,handling it by himself and without a place to call home to. Enters Kimberley, her son was Brandon's teammate. Kimberley was unselfish, taking Brandon in and filled in the missing pieces in his life. ...more

This is something completely new and different from Jade C. Jamison, and it just goes to show how versatile she is as a writer. She can tackle so many different sub-genres and tropes, and they’re always enjoyable reads.

To Save Him was my first May-December romance and I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. I’ve read some “forbidden” romance novels before, and sometimes they can come off as a little awkward or uncomfortable, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I dove into this

Jade has done it again! I will admit, I am a hard core Jade fan and have loved every book she’s written, and ‘To Save Him’ is definitely another addition to my list of favorites. This is such a different read than her other titles, yet there is still that very familiar Jade feel to the words and writing.

Jade tackles several difficult subjects including a single mother learning to move forward in life after the loss of her oldest child and PTSD. She does so with finesse and tenderness, yet doesn

This is a different kind of story from Jade that I was used to. This put the May-June plot in a new light. I was not sure about this one when I first started it but the end I did find there were parts I really enjoyed.

Jade C. Jamison is a steamy romance author, heavy metal fangirl, wife and mom, coffee connoisseur, cat lover, and vegan foodie--not necessarily in that order. She loves life and believes we learn our wisest lessons when reading, especially fiction. Her heroines are fierce, her heroes all but broken, both seeking redemption together
