Review: Save Me by Kristyn Kusek Lewis

Save Me
by Kristyn Kusek Lewis

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Pages: 288
Format: ARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Daphne Mitchell has always believed in cause and effect, right and wrong, good and bad. The good: her dream job as a doctor; Owen, her childhood sweetheart and now husband; the beautiful farmhouse they're restoring together. In fact, most of her life has been good--until the day Owen comes home early from work to tell her he's fallen head over heels for someone else.

Unable to hate him, but also equally incapable of moving forward, Daphne's life hangs in limbo until the day Owen's new girlfriend sustains near-fatal injuries in a car accident. As Daphne becomes a pillar of support for the devastated Owen, and realizes that reconciliation may lie within her grasp, she has to find out whether forgiveness is possible and decide which path is the right one for her.

Kritters Thoughts:  A couple that has been together since childhood and may have lost a little bit of that loving feeling and Daphne may not want to admit it.  Owen decides to spend time with a co worker instead of confronting his feelings about their relationship and the roller coaster begins.

Although there were quite a few ups and downs in the book, it felt sort of real and I liked hearing Daphne's internal debate.  I absolutely appreciated that she had friends and family who would challenge her thoughts and feelings - I liked their honesty.  Without their honest feelings, I probably wouldn't have loved this story as much.  

I don't normally love books with relationships that are going south, but I absolutely adore this author so wanted to see how she would write it.  I still don't love this type of story, but Kristyn Kusek Lewis did it as right as it could have been done.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from BookSparks PR.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
