Blog Tour-Review: Saving Me by Alannah Lynne (Heat Wave #1)

Adult Contemporary Romance
(Heat Wave Novel #1)

“A hidden gem in contemporary romance” ~~ Café Bibliophile
In SAVING ME (Previously released as SAVIN’ ME), Erik Monteague has spent the past thirteen months trapped by the memories of his scorching-hot one-night stand with Kat Owens. When she takes over his advertising account, he’s more than happy to discuss positioning… but not the kind to increase his business… the kind that will put her back in his bed and in his life. While his perfectly executed seduction gets Kat back into his bed, their emotional connection rips open old wounds and Erik is forced to either face his tragic past, or spend the rest of his life running.
Advertising executive Kat Owens has one last chance to prove to her aging grandfather she can be a success. She can’t afford to be distracted by a charming, bad-boy client she knows from personal experience delivers high-voltage sex but nothing more. After succumbing to his advances and spending a weekend in Erik’s arms, she realizes there’s more to life than a successful career and she sets out to prove to him love can be good and lasting.
But Erik’s scars run deep and love may not be enough to save him.
Each book in the Heat Wave series stands alone and can be read out of order.

My Review

Saving Me is a great, quick romance with some added bits of tension from the main characters' individual and shared pasts.  Not to mention a not-so-nice co-worker and a lot of friends who care for each other in a small-town type setting.

Erik comes across a your typical playboy type, when in reality he's keeping real relationships as far away as possible.  Kat has had her share of past problems with so-called friends, and while the two of them sizzle when together, neither wants to be tied into a relationship and Kat doesn't want anything getting in the way of her career.

But when sparks fly like they do with Kat and Erik, something's got to give and that's where the drama and tension come into play to give this story an extra kick.  And the whole while, you're hoping that their personal issues will resolve because you know that the two of them absolutely belong to each other...even if it seems like they really haven't known each other for long.

A variation on the second chance romance theme, Saving Me was a 4-star read for me, and I'd recommend for romance readers 18+.
