Bianca Easton is the perfect senator’s daughter.

Law school? Check.

Camera-ready smile? Check.

A dull and boring existence? Double check.

But that was before. Before she lost her best and only friend in a tragic accident. Before she found that friend's unfinished bucket list. Definitely before she turned her life upside-down by deciding to stay in New York for six months to fi

4.5 stars. Enjoyed this story very much. Bianca is used to towing the line where her parents are concerned. She is obedient and predictable. Then, her life is forever changed when her best friend dies and leaves behind her unfinished bucket list. The story follows Bianca as she works through the items on the list along with Ian, the handsome man who she met at a coffee shop. He is hella sexy and they're good together. However, there's something holding him back from putting himself out there for ...more

Bianca just graduated college when her best friend suddenly dies. She finds a (kind of) bucket list her best friend once made and the list isn’t complete yet. Her friend always wanted Bianca to live more and Bianca hopes to do that by finishing the list. One of the things on the list is buying a stranger behind you coffee. That’s how Bianca will meet Ian. Ian doesn’t understand what’s happening and he wants to return the kind gesture. When Bianca tells Ian about the list, Ian wants to help her.

My life had always been laid out before me like stepping stones – Columbia Law, pass the bar, get married, make partner, be the perfect politician's wife, have children, live happily ever after. It had been set out that way for so long that I couldn't even imagine what another path might look like.

Bianca is the perfect daughter.

Piano. Check.
Law school. Check.
Reputation. Check.

She tries her best not to be a disappointment. As her parents treat her like an accessory, all she wants to feel is their affection. But when her best friend dies, Bianca promises herself to complete her unfinished bucket list.

Ian is a shell. His past involves a lot of pain and loss. Each day is meaningless... until a random girl buys him a coffee.

All The Ways You Saved Me was an emotional and entertaining read.

I found myself staying up way into the early hours reading as I couldn't put it down.
I loved Bianca, she was passionate, she had a beautiful big heart and I really connected with her.
Ian was a good guy who has not allowed himself to love after losing his high school love.
Together they were fun and I enjoyed watching them interact, it warmed my heart when Ian finally opened his eyes and saw what we all knew and coul

Ohhhhhh....this book. You guys. It’s been nearly twenty-four hours since I turned the last page on this book and it’s still sitting smack in the middle of my heart. So. Freaking. Good.

I read most of All the Ways You Saved Me with this lump in my throat. I completely enjoyed every moment - but I was afraid to keep reading. At first because I knew that my emotions weren't going to get out of this book unscathed. Even when I wasn't entirely sure what the "other shoe" was, I kept waiting for it to

This is my first book by author Jamie Howard. It won’t be my last!

The blurb does a grand job of hooking a reader’s attention. There are enough details to push readers toward reading the rest of the story. My review is spoiler-free, and I won’t be retelling the story. All the Ways You Saved Me is a standalone story and the beginning of the Love Unplugged Series. You won’t have to wait to continue the series because the other two books, The Feeling of Forever and The Way Back to Us are available

**ARC Provided in exchange for an honest review**

With that said, I'm going to be quite honest. I have no expectations when I receive an ARC, especially from an author that I've never read before. When I received this one, I checked out the blurb and was intrigued. It sounded like a nice contemporary romance, good deal. Wow, I got way more than I bargained for.

Be warned All The Ways You Saved Me is very, very, very emotional!!!!

Her life has been mapped out for her, without the slightest consideration to her own choices. When her best friend dies tragically just after graduation, Bianca's life is turned upside down.

An emotionally beautiful story.

This story was so beautifully written. Told from two point of views, one present, one past. We follow the story of Bianca and Ian's present, watching their story play out together all the while getting Ian's story told from his past. You know their is going to be heartache in his story, he is so broken in the present, a shell of his former self. Witnessing his downfall and out of control spiraling breaks your heart.

I can't tell you how excited I am for this new author! Well, maybe I can...I'll try, anyway. I've already read two books by Ms. Howard, and I really enjoyed them both, but "All the Ways You Saved Me" has really upped her game!

Who knew one book could draw such strong and powerful emotions out of you?!?! This book can and did. All The Ways You Saved Me was nothing short of an emotional ride that I have no regrets getting on.

I fell in love with Jamie's writing from her debut book and she has never let me down since. If anything, she's only surprised me with each book since and this one is my favorite by her so far.

Oh, I loved this book so much. It's completely engrossing from the very first page. Howard has created complex characters with real problems - and real baggage, but all you want is for these two very different characters to overcome their issues and find a way to be together.

I wasn't sure about the dual POV starting so far into the book, but it completely worked. I loved everything about this book. I kept putting it down because I didn't want it to end. Then I was afraid to pick it up until I k

“All the ways you saved me” is a sweet heartfelt read- it starts off with emotions and feels. Bianca has had it rough, treated as a pawn rather than the daughter to her parents.- through heart breaking tragedy she is able to escape it all and be on her own- Not without a struggle... through her journey she meets Ian and oh my lord do we want an Ian in our lives . lol Together with Bianca’s

I realise that this story holds an undertone of grief that entire way through which doesn't really disappear - even in the intended light-hearted parts.

I will even admit that I felt emotionally invested towards the characters.

Ian is a flake. He is a flake to her. He didn't treat her the way she deserved to be treated because he wasn't in the right state of mind- emotionally overwrought is what comes to mind.

The story alternates from Ian's POV in the past ranging from '8 years earlier' to '15

The first book in a new series, Love Unplugged, All The Ways You Saved Me was an emotionally charged read for sure. It was unexpected but so very much welcomed tale of lost love and new chances.

4 love can always save a person stars. The overview piqued my interest and once I began reading, I was hooked. The story flowed well and the characters were easy to like. Bianca is a product of a stuffy, upperclass family with very rigid expectations. She finally rebels after her best friend's death, going off to New York City and completing her list of things to do. This list brings Bianca face-to-face with Ian, the very man who is going to change her life forever.

How often do we read a book and figure out what will happen? You know in your heart but you beg your mind and eyes to tell you that you are wrong. You know you are going to be crushed but you can't stop. Of course I cried, I may have done a leaky faucet impression. ( I said may have.)

Bianca has just learned how fragile life is. She's fighting with her sense of duty to her parents and a promise made to the one person who has proven they loved her- her best friend.

Bianca Easton has been living her life according to the plan. Who's plan it is she wasn't sure of anymore but there were expectations on her since she is a senator's daughter. Doing what's expect of her doesn't hold much appeal after she loses her best friend in an accident.

OMG the feels!!!! I was so emotionally invested in this book that it's almost scary.
I love the characters and how imperfect they are. So humans, so lovable.
It was so heart wrenching to read about all the losses and the painful road one had to take to find redemption, then love, and finally happiness.

Solid 3.5 stars. Graduating law school for Bianca meant moving home and following the life set up for her by her parents. When tragedy strikes and her best friend dies Bianca chooses to honor her memory by finishing her list. The list is sort of like a bucket list but more about the everyday and making those days special. Buying coffee for a stranger is what gets the ball moving on Bianca finding out what and whom she wants out of life. The list also brings Ian into Bianca’s life. Ian has essent ...more

Two tortured hearts find each other and forge a new path in life.

All The Ways You Saved Me by Jamie Howard is an emotional story that will tug your heartstrings and give you so many feels! It was a fantastic read jam-packed with complex, well-developed characters and the type of angsty, dramatic romance that I'm a sucker for!

Bianca has lived under her parents controlling ways for far too long. When her best friend dies, she takes it upon herself to finish her "bucket list of sorts" and thus beg
