Save Me From Myself
I tried to be the perfect daughter and fiancee, but after the people who are supposed to love me the most betrayed me, those days are done.
I’m ready for a fresh start - and this time a relationship won’t define who I am.
No turning back.
At least, that was the plan before I met him.
He wants me…
And he’s not about to take no for an answer.

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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
David has a complicated past of his own, but he knows a good woman when he sees one. Lyric and David take a chance and find something good with each other. Dealing with each others pasts and complications together as a team, they w ...more
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, ...more
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 ...more
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 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!!
Complete review to come!
This book is about second chances at love and life itself.
Lyric runs from her life and runs into David. They both have their own insecurities dealing with love. But their biggest insecurity they must both overcome is how to trust again.
Can't wait to see what's in the future for Lyric, by the way I love her name, and David.
Lyric moves from New York to Nashville to start over after finding her fiance cheating on her. Never did she think she would meet Mr Right in Nashville. This was such a sweet love story. Can't wait to read more of this author's books.

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 don’t know how to explain my reaction to her. I know the normal response to finding your fiancé in bed with another woman is not to calmly walk out and leave, bu ...more

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 was in a relationship with a man of great social standing, they were even engaged, but things took a turn for the worse after a sudden loss and unexpected discovery. Anyone would think that family would be the first place ...more

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.”
