Review by Brenda’s Book Beat
Save me from me by Erika Ashby
I enjoyed this book immensely. There is great depth in the characters. Some of the situations are so real it feels like you need a break from the action. The author Erika Ashby is wonderful and will be on my TBR list from now on.
Dani comes home after 10 years of trying to find herself. Life with her mother isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, but she feels that maybe she is stuck. That is until the handsome Holden catches her attention and teaches her that life doesn’t have to be that way.
Holden feels stuck in his father’s footsteps until he meets Dani and she helps him see he wants more and can get it with her.
This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
