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 des

There are a few grays on my temples, too, but for some reason the chest hair seems to bother him more… “It’s what the ladies call dignified.” They really don’t. More to the point, they say things like, “Ride me, cowboy” or “faster, my probation officer will be here soon.” The latter only happened once, okay twice, but in my defense, it was with the same broad.

The fighting Irish? I think they had the O’Briens in mind when they came up with that saying.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
SAVE ME by Cecy Robson is book 5 in the O'Brien Family series. This is the story of Allie Mendes and Seamus O’Brien. I have read the previous book but feel this can be a standalone book.
This was really a sweet romance that was hard to put down for me. Allie is the good girl and is overlooked a lot by her family and has to accept her sister taking her boyfriend. Now they are getting married and Allie has to participate in it. Seamus seems to attract the women that aren't to stable and now he is

A smidge of Catholic guilt, a series of family weddings, and Seamus finds himself desperately in need of a 'girl I can bring home to my mother' type of date. Too bad, Seamus' contact list is full of quite the opposite, but then a sweet woman desperately whispers, 'Save Me' and he's all in. The final book in the O'Brien Family series was irreverent fun, tender, sensual, and a whole lot of the feels.

Save Me is book five in the O'Brien Family and works as a romance for the last single O'Brien and a
Save Me is the final book in Cecy Robson's O'Brien Family series and it was a fitting ending that gave us a chance to catch up with the previous couples as well as see Seamus finally get his own happily ever after. I have to admit Seamus took a while to grow on me, he has a very high opinion of himself and that makes him come across as rather cocky and arrogant in the beginning of the story but luckily there is more to him than that and he can actually be really sweet when you get to know him.

Bittersweet ending…

What a sweet, funny, snarky, romantic ending to this series! I’ve loved the O’Briens from the beginning, cherishing each sibling’s story, squirreling away all the feels and laughter to take out and hug when needed. I started Seamus’ story knowing this was the last one so I read very, very slowly….

I laughed so much with the antics of Allie and Seamus! Seamus is hot, wicked, with a wonderful, raunchy sense of humour and a protective streak that embraces Allie from the start. He

Seamus and Allie's story is my favorite in the O'Brien series. I read it in one sitting. I simply couldn't put it down!

Seamus is the last of the O'Brien family to find his HEA and Allie perfect for him. Their "relationship" starts where she needs saving from her mother and sister and Seamus being the nice guy he that he is, acts like they are together. He doesn't miss the opportunity to grab her butt in the process, he might be sweet but he still a horn dog and Allie is super cute. LOL

So blessed to have been able to beta read Seamus' s story. I laughed and cried. A terrific final book. ...more

The O'Brien Family series by Cecy Robson has been a very enjoyable read.
I've enjoyed watching the O'Brien siblings find their soul mates and couldn't wait to read Seamus's book.
Now having read Save Me I'm struggling with my feelings.
The things I loved were getting to spend time with all the O'Brien's again. They continued to make me laugh and swoon and they reminded me why I've enjoyed this series so much.

Then I think of Seamus and I feel a little let down, I wanted to love him as much a
This is a funny story of fake to real romance with a notorious Irish/American Catholic family, the O'Briens, at its heart. In this story it is the oldest son, Seamus, who is being pressured by his younger siblings finding the loves of their lives and planning to get married. He wants to bring his own date to their weddings but most of his recent dates have really not been the kind you bring to your family - not if you want their possessions to be safe, anyway!

So... This story. It was okay. At times. Other times, it was overwhelming. The characters were, to be precise.

Seamus is not my ideal hero. He's crass, brash, conceited, and arrogant. His age, experience, and wealth might be reason enough to be the way he is but it was cringe-worthy reading about him. Two qualities I did like: his age and his persistence. But even those things didn't sway me towards me him anymore by the time I reached the end.

Allie was a perfect opposite to Seamus. She is the ep

Cecy Robson is an author that hit the mark with her Weird Girls series. "Save Me" is the fifth in the O'Brien Family collection. Seamus O'Brien is the oldest in a family whose sibling are all paired up with the loves of their lives. Allie Mendes is a successful business women who resides in the shadow of her sister Valentina who is marrying her previous boyfriend Andres. This is a stand alone novel but it spent a great deal of time revisiting the prior O'Brien couples. Characters just fell short ...more

A sweet goodbye to a wonderful series. I will miss the O’Briens greatly.

Saying goodbye to the O’Briens is like finding out your favorite cousin is moving across the country. I am going to miss them so much. The romances were sweet, the characters were delightful and the stories of their crazy childhood always made me laugh out loud.

In this final story, Seamus is taking some slack from his siblings for being thirty-seven and still spending his time with non-virtuous ladies of questionable upbring

This series is just epic and awesome – I’ve loved each of the books a little more than the last! Seamus and Allie are probably my favorite couple so far, they’re just such a perfect balance for one another and their camaraderie had me in stitches.

Seamus is always being bugged by his 6 siblings and his mother about the fact that he’s not settled down yet, Seamus is just happy being a playboy. Until his families comments start to break through his thick exterior and Seamus starts to think that may
I didn't realize when I clicked on this that it was book #5 in a series. I read the description and I thought it would be interesting, and it certainly was. OMG Seamus is one of 7 in a big Irish family. Since I didn't read the other 4, I totally need to read the others because the O'Brien's are something else. So many shenanigans between the brothers. I was cracking up at Seamus. I just couldn't get over some of the things that would come out of his mouth. Now, he has horrible taste in women and ...more

Shamelessly sexy. Utterly clueless. Hard to resist. Seamus O'Brien feels like the last man standing in a family that's dropping like flies. Love is reeking havoc in his family and he seems to keep missing the blow. That is until the girl he never saw, becomes the woman he can't forget. A chance encounter and a desperate favor have Allie Mendes and Seamus O'Brien rethinking everything they thought they knew about love. Cecy Robson is an emotional writer. She targets the heart with humorous dialog ...more
I think this is a love-it or hate-it book. I veered between three and a half and four stars but in the end I decided on four stars.

Seamus O'Brien is (I think) the third oldest of the seven O'Brien siblings. This is the fifth book in the series and I have only read one previously, Feel Me which features Seamus' older brother Declan, the DA.

Seamus is a big contrast to Declan. He's loud, opinionated, attracted to crazy women and has a VERY high opinion of himself. His little sister Wren is getting

Wow let me tell you why I love this book! Seamus and his family are SO FUNNY. They all are full of sarcastic whit and no filter. Allie is such a sweet soul who is trying to live through the hurts of the past that she now is reliving due to her thoughtless, selfish family. I spent the majority of this book wanting to harm them (eekk). Seamus and Allie together take us on a magical journey, full of emotion, crazy conversations, and wild events. Love the very different family weddings they attend. ...more

This book!!! It was so incredibly good. Seamus has to be the best male lead character I have read this year. He is just so gloriously inappropriate. From the thoughts in his head, to the times he actually voices them, he had me chuckling along page after page. He is very confident in not only his looks, but how he is as a person. And deservedly so. When Allie and Seamus meet in the bakery it was absolutely hilarious.
But with all the laughter,

It’s finally Seamus’ turn to present his story and as for all the novels in the series, I was really looking forward to immerse myself in this new story! It must be said that Cecy Robson rarely disappoints!

We discover this O’Brien brother and Allie, two characters that everything seems to oppose! While all his siblings have found their half and are about to get married, the oldest of all seems irretrievably alone. But now, the marriage is approaching, he is s

I wanted to like this title. I have read other books by this author and I have enjoyed them, so I was looking forward to it.

And, there were parts of this title that I enjoyed. However, the way the dialog was written, I was not ever able to feel fully connected to the characters. I know it seems small, but they always felt like carictares and like they were not real, but the stereotypical character.

I don't know, they could be based on real people,

4.5 stars but I only took that 1/2 star off b/c there wasn’t more of the “good, sexy sex stuff”, if you know what I mean 😉 Great happily ever after for the O’Briens (and maybe a few other characters you might know from a certain other series - yay!!). This really cheered me up!

Save Me by Cecy Robson is the fifth book in the O’Brien Family series, which incidentally, is an offshoot of the Shattered Pasts series (just a bit of trivia!). In its most basic form, the story revolves around two lonely people, in need of saving, who save each other.

Save Me revolves around the third eldest O’Brien child Seamus, who, let’s face it, is a carefree womaniser. His family adore him but think that as he’s getting older, and they are all settling down themselves, he needs to find a go
Save Me is the fifth book in Cecy Robeson’s O’Brien Family series and was a marvel to read.

Seamus O’Brien is almost forty years old and has abysmal taste in women. This fact has never bothered him before; quite at easy with a string of one-night stands or short-term relationships, he never put much effort into finding ‘the one’. But now with all his siblings in loving relationships and three upcoming weddings, Seamus is desperate for respectable women to introduce to his rowdy ‘If you cut us, we

This was a hilarious romantic comedy that I blew through in just one afternoon! If you can only read one book on a vacation, pick this one up and at least read to Chapter 6. That chapter is one of the funniest pieces of writing I have read in quite some time. I generally pick up romances not thinking it's going to be very funny - a lot of books just seem to lean more on the heavy side these days, with lots of angst and drama. While this book did have those things as well, the comic relief brough ...more
