** TRIGGER WARNING: This story contains mention of physical and emotional abuse. Although no abuse takes place during the story it is described, at times, in detail. ** <- That's a lie. For 1/3 of the book, Isabel leaves with her abusive husband who threatens her with no food for her and her daughter if he doesn't get the pills he wanted. Not to mention some other things of sexual nature. And it takes Sophie getting physically abused and ending up with a broken arm in order for Isabel to ...more blog~

This book was so intense and emotional. The characters were amazing, and I just adored Sophie!

Recently, I read my first Andi Jaxon novel and loved it. So much so that I will be adding some of her books to my summer reading list. With the exception of holiday romance, summer reading is my favorite time of the year. It's the one time I promise myself to knock off books from my TBR, and read for pure pleasure. Not that I don't do that already, but being a blogger/reviewer, I read many ARCs. Oh,

Survival takes many forms

Adam, Isabel and Sophies story was hard to read at times but the emotional overload was worth it. Take warning of the triggers though

Isabel was living a nightmare that she didnt see a way out of. When she met Adam, he saw in her shades of his past but also everything he secretly yearned for. Love, family and a chance at redemption Isabel and her daughter tugged every feeling he had, enough to break him of his workaholic tendencies. As they both battled their demons, from

Then there is Isabel and her beautiful little girl Sophie. After falling for and marrying her husband Jason (also in the Navy), he turned abusive, controlling, and terrifying.

There are no words to begin to describe the emotional ride Save Me will take you on. This story broke my heart, but it also put it back together. Save Me is a beautiful story of strength, of surviving and realizing that you are not broken.

Isabels strength is everything. She is a fighter, she is a survivor, she is not weak, she is not broken. Her love for her daughter is beautiful. Adam is also a survivor. He knows exactly what Isabel and Sophie have dealt with, he knows the feeling, he still is

Save Me may be a hard read for some as it contains some emotional & physical abuse, but overall it's a sweet story about a man and woman saving each other from the dark parts of their lives.

There were a few jumps and backtracks in the story that sometimes made it hard to follow, I had to go back and reread a few things to see what I'd missed due to the jumps.

Overall a good story & sweet characters, but I felt it needed a little more depth.

*I was given an ARC of this book in exchange

Aj and Andi have done it again! Save Me is a work of art. It does contain a warning on it and I do recommend that you read that warning. Adam has a dark past of his own, his mother was abused when he was a child and he has made it a mission to save others. Until he meets Isabel, she is a fighter she just doesnt know it yet. Sometimes you need the broken pieces of someone to be whole again. ...more

I can never get enough of this duo! AJ Alexander and Andi Jaxon definitely have some major magic when they write together. Save Me is a super emotional and super sweet read that brought me to tears more than once. I was instantly in love with Adam the second I met him. This doctor is not just a sexy man with a stethoscope, hes got a heart that is simply too good for this world and so much love and sweetness for Isabel and her daughter.
I truly did enjoy their story for the most part, and honestly

Wow not even sure where to begin

This book is an emotional roller coaster dealing with domestic violence and trying to find yourself again.

Isabel loved Jason but when he became violent she did everything she could to protect herself and her daughter she never imagined life like this and when she meets Adam, the caring doctor she knows he is someone she can trust

Adam grew up in an abusive home and he feels such a connection to Isabel he vows he will do whatever he has to to protect her and

A very emotional read that hit very deeply. The troubles Isabel faced are unfortunately ones many face. Being in an abusive relationship tears a person down to the point that they no longer have any self worth. Fortunately Adam is there to help her get out of the relationship she is in and helps her to become the woman she really is. At the same time, Isabel is able to save Adam as well from what he went through as a child and the guilt he carries. Make sure you have tissues ready, because you ...more

Well written story that does deal with a very hard subject. Adam and Isabel were wonderful characters. The journey to their HEA was hard and touching to watch. Highly recommend this story.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Emotionally, intense story that you wanna just go into the book and help. Adam is a sexy, sweet doctor that when he loves or cares he does hard and is willing to do anything. Isabel hasnt had a good life at all and is just wanting to keep her daughter Sophia safe. This is one of the stories that hit home for me because I was Sophia but just like her Im a survivor. I will say parts of the story I was very confused and had to reread many parts but otherwise it was a great book! 4/5 stars ...more

This was a beautiful story about a man who has a hero complex and always trys to fix and save everyone, but with his past it was so understandable. I really liked Adam. This was a hard book to read at times because of the subject matter. When I was a child I went thing something like this and the author did a good job at expressing things. Thats the best way to describe it.

I did find my self a little annoyed with the internal dialogue from Sophie. Im not sure why. In her head she seemed more

Heartbreaking, emotional read

From the very first chapter this story broke my heart and took me on an emotional ride. Adam and Isobel's story had me gripped with every word. AJ Alexander and Andi Jaxon certainly know how to capture their readers with their amazing characters and intriguing story line.

Adam Patterson is a Navy doctor. A man who suffered untold abuse as a child, a man who grew up with a fierce protective nature. Isobel Alexander is a woman living with constant abuse, both physically

I enjoyed this book, I did like the way the story unfolded and its subject matter was very interesting. The underlying message that is in this story is a very prevalent one that affects both women and men every day.

I did connect with the characters but the whole relationship occurred at a breakneck speed which really didn't give me enough time to get to know them well enough. Adams personality was sweet and caring, I would have liked him to be a little more alpha male; if anything, for me, he

WOW!! SPEECHLESS!! JUST SPEECHLESS!! Andi Jaxon and A.J. Alexander BLEW ME AWAY with this One!! The moment I read the Blurb- SAVE ME, I was intrigued and wanted to know More! Bonus since I'm a HUGE Fan of their Writing!!
Gotta warn you though, it does deal with emotional and physical domestic abuse but so worth the read. Isabel and Sophie's story is So Beautifully Written but has All The FEELS you can ask for in a book & More! Adam has you swooning over his chivalry and melts your heart

Rating: 4.5*

This was an emotional roller coaster of a read, with highly distressing subject matter.

Adam and his mother are survivors of domestic abuse. His life goal is protect and save anyone who is in the same situation. When he meets Isabel for the first time, he recognises something in her that needs his help with, if she will let him. Her husband is vile, violent and abusive. He controls her and their daughter and has them living in fear.

My heart broke from reading this book for Isabel and

Save Me is an amazing read. There may be some triggers when it comes to abuse for some. I really enjoyed this emotional, some what intense ride that you are taken on while reading Save Me. There is a lot of strength, love and surviving when it comes down to Adam, Isabel and Sofie. I love the strength in Adam as he embraces full on Isabel and her daughter Sofie. Sofie is such a delight you will just want to hug her close and not let go. Isabel you feel for her decisions at first and then you ...more

When I saw these two were teaming up again I jumped at the chance to get this book! This story was emotionally draining and it sucks you in from the first chapter, but I loved every aspect of it. Isabel is in a lose lose situation with her abusive husband and daughter that she desperately tries to protect. Fortunately Adam, who is a doctor of the hospital, has personal experience with women living with abusive husbands because his mother lived with her abusive ex for years. Adam desperately ...more

This book had me all up in my emotions and they were all over the place. Adam has his on set of demons and when he meets Isabel it triggers them. Isabel is living in hell with her daughter and it sucks when her daughter gets hurt she finally wakes up! Adam is super sweet and supportive through it all even when Isabel is jumpy and snappy. Sophie was the highlight of this book she is so adorable and sweet and a breath of fresh hair. She knows whats going on but she never misses a beat. I really ...more
Isabel is living a horrible life with her young daughter. They live in fear every day and it seems like she's content to deal with her husband until it all changes drastically one day.
Adam lived Isabel's life when he was a child and he's declaiming to help her get out of get situation at any cost.
This was not the book for me. I'm not normally a fan of the subject matter, but wanted to give it a chance.

This book was so emotional and intense! The characters had depth and dimension. There are a few scenes that may not be for everyone, but they are so well written. While there are a lot of tragic and sad undertones, ultimately this story is about a man and woman who had rough lives, and then saving each other from the darkness bound to taken them down. Andi and AJ did it again with another amazing book!

Adam and Isabels love story is not one out of a fairytale, nor is it an easy time to get there for either of them. Adam, whose mom was abused as a child, swears to do his best to save people and other families in the same position his mom and he dealt with. Isabel is in an abusive marriage, and once Adam sees her, he knows he must help. Neither of them realize just how difficult their road will be, though. ...more

Save Me, is about abuse. Emotional and physical abuse. It's a sweet story between the characters, but I thought the storyline went a bit too fast. Which made the story lack depth.
The story also jumped a few times, back and forth, and that pulled me out an made me go back to check if I missed something.

From Dyslexic kid with a love of Algebra to a published author, no one is more surprised to find me here, than I am. I love to write about tortured pasts and hot sex, a happily ever after that has to be worked for. My stories tend to be a little dark but with some comic relief, typically in the form of sarcasm.
