Book Review for Save Me by Samantha Chase



Save Me by Samantha Chase is now live!


Pretending to date the town's bad boy seemed like a good idea.
But who knew that being bad could feel so good...

A small town, fake dating, opposites attract standalone romance from NY Times Bestselling Author Samantha Chase

Ryleigh Donovan has been unsuccessfully dodging her mother's matchmaking attempts for far too long. In an act of desperation, she finds the one guy in her small town who is guaranteed to shock everyone to be her fake boyfriend. It doesn't need to be for long, she just needs to buy herself enough time to recover from her mother's last disastrous fix-up. It's really a fool-proof plan. But when a few staged kisses lead to some very real feelings, she realizes she might be in over her head.
Ryker Masella has been patiently waiting for the perfect opportunity to get Ryleigh to take him—and his numerous attempts at asking her out—seriously. When she grabs him and kisses him in front of her family to prove a point, he's more than on board. But when she proposes a fake—and temporary—relationship, he's 100% on board. After all, she might be all about pretending, but he sees it as a way for Ryleigh to truly see the real him.
Fake flirting and orchestrated dates quickly bring on real feelings. For Ryker, they've always been there and he'll be as patient as he needs to be. She might have asked him to save her from her family, but what he wants is to save her from herself.

*Each book in the Donovans series can be read as a standalone*

My Thoughts:  Ryleigh Donavon does not want her mom to set her up with any more boring men.  Ryker has his sights set on Ryleigh but she will not give him the time of day but he is the answer to get her mom off her back.   It was obvious from the very first parking lot kiss that there was going to be more to these fake dates then Ryleigh expected.  I really enjoyed watching Ryleigh and Ryker become a couple.  She did not even realize that it was happening, and Ryker was enjoying showing her how wonderful they could be together. 


The Donavon family and friends play a huge part in this book.  I enjoy watching them all come around Ryleigh, support her and want to protect her from heartbreak.  Most of all I enjoy watching them stand up to their mom, showing her how hurtful her actions and words are.   Then the twist of what she was hoping to happen and how it all came together made me smile and shake my head.    You cannot teach an old dog new tricks.


The Donavon Series is a fun, sweet, and sexy series of romance stories.   I look forward to more from this series.
