Save Me From Myself

(Nashville Secrets #1)

really liked it 4.00  ·  Rating details ·  687 ratings  ·  115 reviews

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.

That means:

No men.
No complications.
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

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. ...more

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.

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'"

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

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 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

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

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

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,

- 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
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!!

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. ...more

Donna Purcell Zappone
This is book 1 in the Nashville series .
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 and David's story

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:

Lyric and David each have deep scars from their pasts. Trust no longer comes easy but the attraction they have for one another is immediate. Slowly they build a relationship and the emotions run deep until an impossible situation appears and leaves them spinning out of control.

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
Monsterella Reviews
The essence behind this sorry is overcoming tragedy and finding true love.

Lyric may be from a wealthy family but she's endured so much. Her mother is more concerned about social standing and the impression others have about her than her own daughter's feelings and heart. 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

With Save Me From Myself, Stacey Mosteller gives her readers a nice, solid romance at just the right length. The book kept my interest until the end and had great main and supporting character development as well.

Lyric is looking for something new. She needs to get away from her parents, her ex and her past to find herself again. She has been somebody else for others too long, so she packs up and leaves Manhattan for Nashville. With a name like Lyric I figured she was a musician, however I was w
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Lyric Hayes has run away from her life in Manhattan. Away from her overbearing family and ex-boyfriend. Away from a past she wants to avoid. She is determined to make a new life for herself in Nashville. The moment Lyric meets David Pearson, sparks fly. But, Lyric has a past. And David has secrets too. Falling in love is easy, but learning to love and be loved is the hard part. Lyric and Davids story was such a refreshing read. I loved that char

This book is amazing and left me with a book hangover for sure! I fell in love with the main characters almost immediately, and kept wanting more!

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. With a controlling mother and an ex fiance who cannot take "NO" for an answer, they prov

“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.”
