Overview

Harlequin Junkie declares, “[Cecy Robson] is on my auto buy list…her heroes might be powerful, handsome and irresistible, but her heroines are, too…”

Three weddings. No date. What’s a hot stud to do when all the women on his speed dial are either serving dinner to their families or serving time?

Out of all the O’Briens, Seamus is the best-looking, most creative, and, did I mention, best-looking? Single at almost forty wasn’t a big deal until every sibling in his large and loud Irish family found “the one.” Now, he’s desperate for a wedding date, one he doesn’t have to worry will make out with the limo driver or rob the bride and groom blind.

Allie Mendes is the good daughter, who’s spent her life living in her perfect sister’s shadow. But when her sister steals the man Allie was supposed to marry, that shadow she’s lived in threatens to swallow her whole. Allie wants to believe a bright future awaits. But when she begs God to save her from this disastrous twist of fate, the last person she expects Him to send her is Seamus O’Brien.

Allie needs a stand-in boyfriend to avoid appearing as lonely as she feels. Seamus needs a decent woman without an ankle bracelet or a rap sheet as long as his muscular arms. The two make a deal to pose as each other’s perfect date. But weddings mean romance and a chance at forever neither had planned.

I loved this book. I had a hard time deciding who my favorite O'Brien was until I met Seamus. He is every woman's realdream and Alli is what every girl wants to be

This is the first of this series that I’ve read and I have to admit that I didn’t think I was going to like Seamus. He’s brash, cocky, mouthy, and more often than not inappropriate. But he’s also caring and fun and he does everything he can to bring Allie out of her shell. I easily found myself falling under his spell right along with her. Allie’s family is pretty much awful, especially her sister and she really needed to find a champion in Seamus. It helps, of course, that he’s sexy is all get out. His confidence (and, surprisingly, his lack of filter) helps her find her own mojo and the confidence to stand up for herself. I liked that, while these two definitely needed to work on sharing their feelings, things were pretty much drama-free. At least between the two of them – Allie’s sister brought more than enough drama for everyone. Even when they finally reach the point that they have to come clean about falling in love, Robson handles it with care. It’s a sweet ending and definitely in line with the couple we’d gotten to know. **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a review copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not coerced in any way.**

Entertaining, albeit a little frustrating…but it gets there I come from a big family, so I could totally relate to the pressure and all that comes with having a big family. There is no business that they don’t think they are entitled to. Seamus will frustrate you – he’s everything that I love as an alpha male! He’s conceited…he’s cocky (can I still use that word ;-) ha!) and Allie is, at first, no match for him. I thought he was going to chew her up and spit her out! But Ms. Robson got them there. This is a good read of hate to love that I think most will enjoy. If you don’t like an overly confident man then Seamus will make you really not like it. Give it time – it will be worth it.

This is a funny story of fake to real romance with a notorious Irish/American Catholic family, the O'Briens, at its heart. In this story it is the oldest son, Seamus, who is being pressured by his younger siblings finding the loves of their lives and planning to get married. He wants to bring his own date to their weddings but most of his recent dates have really not been the kind you bring to your family - not if you want their possessions to be safe, anyway! When tasting potential cakes for his sister's wedding Allie Mendes greets him. He initially assumes she's someone he's had a one night stand with but she reminds him of their shared school days and how she's helped him and his brothers buy real estate. That's when her sister and her fiancé, who was actually the man who Allie was supposed to marry, arrive. Seamus hears Allie whisper "Save me!" and steps in to do just that. That's the start of their fake relationship. Both need dates for their sibling's weddings. The only problem is, the more time they spend together the more the attraction between the two grows. Can this fake romance develop into real love? A hilarious story, this definitely has laugh out loud moments but it also has some heartwarming relationships and emotive events. The interpersonal relationships in the two families are so different! I was particularly impressed with how Seamus gave Allie the support and strength to stand up for herself and show her family how badly they were treating her. The weddings were each very moving for very different reasons . . . two you'll probably need tissues handy for whilst the third is so funny! Save Me is a steamy romance during which past aspirations are explored and found wanting whilst new opportunities develop to show love can arrive when and how you least expect it. I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

So... This story. It was okay. At times. Other times, it was overwhelming. The characters were, to be precise. Seamus is not my ideal hero. He's crass, brash, conceited, and arrogant. His age, experience, and wealth might be reason enough to be the way he is but it was cringe-worthy reading about him. Two qualities I did like: his age and his persistence. But even those things didn't sway me towards me him anymore by the time I reached the end. Allie was a perfect opposite to Seamus. She is the epitome good girl/daughter. She played by the rules and ended up being left behind by a rotten man and horrible family. There was nothing, absolutely nothing, nice about her family. She should have disowned them long ago, consequences be damned. She deserved happiness; I wasn't all that confident Seamus could show her what that was. I'm not sure if the portrayal of characters is accurate of people in Philly, men and women, but, aside from Allie, I had a hard time connecting to everyone, and even my connection with Allie was marginal. She was lovely in a downcast woe-is-me way, but she was too much wallflower and not enough fire regardless of Seamus's tutoring her into being the woman he seemed to know was hiding behind the frumpy clothes and hairdo. I read this a few times, wondering if my opinion would change after reading, hoping it would. It didn't. It is a friends-to-lovers story, a nerdy-girl-falls-for-popular-boy story, an ugly-duckling-to-beautiful swan story, all tropes I enjoy reading from time to time. But it also left a lot to be desired. Received from publisher for an honest review

Oh Seamus! Seamus was a shock at first with his philandering ways but as the story continued, I found Seamus to be a genuine, caring man that would do anything for those that he loves. Allie, oh wow, her family is just miserable to her. She has grown up in the shadow of her sister being belittled which shapes how she sees herself within the world. She struggles to realize she is worthy of love and success. When Allie and Seamus cross paths at a local bakery, they are both in need of an ally to attend family weddings so an alliance is born. The beauty of this story is how they help each other face family pressures. Seamus seems to be the first person to truly see Allie and show her what she is worth, that she doesn’t deserve to be treated the way her family does. I love how he helps her find that inner confidence that she has but wouldn’t use with her family. Allie helps Seamus realize that love won’t diminish his tough guy exterior. Truly a fun, flirty romance that kept me guessing.

I have long been a fan of Cecy Robson, and this book is a perfect example of why! I love this series, and this was a perfect farewell to them! I was finally happy to get Seamus’s story. I love the fact that he is older, 37. He proves that older men are just as sexy as younger men which is ironic because he needs a date to take to his siblings’ weddings. He has found himself wanting to settle down, but he hasn’t dated or hooked up with the best girls around. Some even have rap sheets. He tells his family he has a “nice” girl he has been seeing, but he didn’t want to tell them right away. He needs to find “his girlfiend” quickly. Fate steps in when he meets Allie Mendes in a bakery. Allie is a real estate agent, and she is good at it. She doesn’t keep promises she can’t keep to her clients, an overwhelming amount of senior citizens. She feels like she will never measure to her sister who has beauty and brains, and now she is marrying the man who Allie was supposed to marry before they betrayed her years before. She doesn’t necessarily get along with her mother. Seriously, this woman doesn’t think there is anything wrong with this!!! OMG! I loved their meeting in the bakery. It was hysterical. When Allie tries to tell him who she is, he thinks she is someone he slept with…that was priceless. He also stuck his foot so far in his throat, he may need a surgeon to remove it!!!! However, they enjoy themselves catching up, and when her sister appears with her fiancé, Seamus steps up as her boyfriend after she pleads with him under her breath to “save me.” This is the beginning of a wonderful friendship and an even more special relationship. There is plenty of chemistry, but there is a deep respect for one another as well! What is wonderful about this book is their friendship despite them having feelings for one another. He helps Allie see her own beauty despite how much her mother and sister have put her down. He also gave her hope which she didn’t have before. She is a woman he can depend on. The title of the book says it all…they were saving each other at a time when they needed someone, not knowing it was going to lead to something extraordinary. I loved catching up with others in the family, and their small mother steals the scene every time she appears. She might be little, but she can put the fear in God in her SEVEN children. My only regret is saying good-bye to this most wonderful family! I felt like I became a part of their clan! Thank you, Cecy Robson, for making me feel that way. I have shed tears, I have been overjoyed, and I have fallen in love with the O’Brien’s!!! Thanks for the memories!!! ***READ AND REVIEWED FOR DEVILISHLY DELICIOUS BOOK REVIEWS***

Save Me by Cecy Robson is the fifth book in a series of standalone romances about the loud, Irish O’Brien siblings from Philly. It is an acquaintance-to-friends-to-lovers story that is based on the fake date premise (with a little twist). I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, and there was no problem jumping into Save Me. It truly can be read as a standalone novel. This book is pure escapism. Both Allie Mendes and Seamus O’Brien are a bit over-the-top in their stereotypical characterization; however, they bring out the best in each other, and I couldn’t help but love them for it. Allie blossoms into a more confident woman and Seamus grows a conscience and learns there is more to love than immediate gratification. I loved the slow burn of their relationship. It was so much more realistic than the standard insta-love stories. It was the first time I truly appreciated the “I don’t want to lose this friend by making a romantic advance” play. The characters’ background and prior relationship made that feel more realistic. The secondary characters on the O’Brien side have been featured in prior books by the Ms. Robson, however, there is enough sibling banter and Seamus backstory to get an ample feel for this rowdy, boisterous family that is led by their diminutive yet stalwart mother. I don’t think I could take that crowd for more than a 30 minutes at a time, but their love and loyalty got to me. On the other hand, the Mendes family is the worst kind of dysfunctional there is. The self-centered diva sister and pretentious mother who worships her are straight out of a reality-television program (or a Disneyfied fairytale). While her family might have driven her to become a successful business woman, Allie would have been better off to estrange herself from her immediate family. Ms. Robson’s sweet romance has plenty of sentimentality and humor and very little angst. The story is well paced, making it a quick read. The karmic ending is entertaining. Save Me is a clean, fun, feel-good book.

Favorite Quotes: There are a few grays on my temples, too, but for some reason the chest hair seems to bother him more… “It’s what the ladies call dignified.” They really don’t. More to the point, they say things like, “Ride me, cowboy” or “faster, my probation officer will be here soon.” The latter only happened once, okay twice, but in my defense, it was with the same broad. I wanted to get married on the beach with just us. But no. Ma insists I get married in a church or risk God releasing a plague that will have flying monkeys shooting out of my lady bits. No one needs that… We just don’t want you to be alone, you know? You hear about those spinster women found dead, their faces half-eaten by their twenty cats. We don’t want that to be you. We don’t want to find you dead, alone, surrounded by @hole cats licking their whiskers. We’re going to need to drop a few bills on new clothes. The hair, I know someone who can fix it… You look like a Mormon and not the good kind. I mean the cult kind. The one with multiple wives and three hundred kids. The kind that make us Irish look infertile. Seriously, Allie. You’re sexy and everything. But if you told me you’re number four of six sister wives, I’d believe you based on what you’re wearing. I try to tone down my smirk. It doesn’t work. Smirks are like wolves. You have to let them loose to run free. She thought the guy was a manager at CBS. Turns out he’s a manager at CVS. She’s freaking out, trying to get it annulled, even though they spent the night banging like grizzlies in the woods with cymbals. My Review: I haven’t had this much fun in ages. Save Me was outrageously witty and highly amusing. I smirked and barked aloud more than a few times as I read. This is only my second time reading the delightfully clever words of Cecy Robson, but I am now a devoted and rabid fangirl. I adore and admire her to such a massive degree she could hit me up for a kidney if she were in need of a spare. I gleefully inhaled this engaging tale that not only had me howling with mirthful laughter but also found me choking up with sweet tears during a tenderly written and emotionally moving wedding scene. I am greedy to read all the previous books in this series as well as every other book this talented scribe has produced. I gluttonously covet all her clever words.

Seamus O'Brien tends to like women who have no shame, are a little on the loud and on the obnoxious side, and his family is growing tired of them, so with his sisters impending nuptials just around the corner, his sister asks him to do something out of the norm and bring home a nice, well behaved women for a change. Problem is Seamus doesn't seem to run into those kinds of women too often, then he happens upon Allie in a bakery and begins to realize she might just fit the "part". When a gorgeous, brooding, man comes to her rescue Allie can't help but get a little caught up in it all, it's not very often that someone can come along and rattle her overbearing mother, and shut-up her posh princess of a sister. They are berating her and also informing her that her ex-boyfriend is now going to be her brother-in-law and that in itself stings more than a little, just once Allie would love to be the center of attention for a good reason...not because of her family wanting to point out her faults in public. Seamus couldn't have come along at a more perfect time... not only does he save the day but he also brings along of unexpected things with him!! Save Me is a dramatic, funny, and sexy tale that showcases two opposite attract characters that prove that love can be found in the place you least expect it! These characters couldn't have been more opposite if they tried, but they found common ground when it came to their pasts, and somewhere along the way it wound up pulling them together. Seamus is a boisterous playboy who goes through women like most go through underpants, while Allie is more reserved and not at all the one night kind of girl, but fate put these two together, and little by little they changed, and eventually grew into the people they always wanted to be, people that were suited perfectly for one another. This was a first time read for me and I have to say I enjoyed what I found, it was a well rounded tale, with bits of everything I look for in a read, and it held my attention throughout. If you like opposite attract stories then I highly recommend you give this one a try, it's sure to satisfy! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and voluntarily read and reviewed.

I can't remember a series that I enjoyed reading as much as this one. Each book had me laughing out loud as well as tears in my eyes. Cecy's writing ability and style made you feel as you were part of the O'Brian family with each novel.

I think this is a love-it or hate-it book. I veered between three and a half and four stars but in the end I decided on four stars. Seamus O'Brien is (I think) the third oldest of the seven O'Brien siblings. This is the fifth book in the series and I have only read one previously, Feel Me which features Seamus' older brother Declan, the DA. Seamus is a big contrast to Declan. He's loud, opinionated, attracted to crazy women and has a VERY high opinion of himself. His little sister Wren is getting married and she (and his mother) are badgering him about bringing a 'nice' date to the wedding. One who isn't already married, or on parole, or will set the church on fire, literally. When cornered Seamus can't stop talking and so he makes up a fake girlfriend, someone 'nice'. Forced to assist in Wren's wedding plans by choosing various pastries for one of the events he is queueing at a local bakery when he runs into Allie Mendes. Although he doesn't recognise or remember Allie they grew up together, she taught his younger siblings at Sunday School, they went to the same school etc. Allie too has a wedding-related problem. Her sister Valentina is getting married, to Allie's high school sweetheart, the man Allie thought she was going to marry. So Seamus and Allie agree to help each other out. Seamus will help make Allie look and feel more attractive and in return Allie will be Seamus' date to three weddings due to take place. Seamus was a problem character for me. At first he was just a bit blunt, a 'say it as I see it' kind of guy. Then around the halfway mark he and his family became that obnoxious group of loud mouthed people who make offensive comments - you know the ones that you ALWAYS get sat next to in a family restaurant. None of them seemed to have filters and all of them felt it was appropriate to say whatever the hell they wanted. Maybe that's what people are like in Philly? Anyway I started to get that Elle Casey feel about the book but I persevered. And what do you know? Under that uber-confident exterior is a man who thinks all he deserves are skanks and crazies, that nice women only want one or two 'dates' before they leave him for a real man with prospects, like a doctor or a lawyer. Despite my mid-book misgivings about Seamus I really enjoyed this book, I liked the way that Seamus and Allie fell in love quietly and almost unnoticed. I liked the way their fake relationship went on, not a two week insta-lurve thing but weeks of texts and calls and dinner with Seamus' family and wedding rehearsals and dress shopping - yeah they were dating and they didn't even realise! I think Cecy Robson may have a tendency to draw her characters a little too broad - you know the baddies have no redeeming qualities and everyone is a Character with a big C - but this was still a charming and thoughtful romance where I really felt they way that Allie and Seamus got to know each other slowly, supported each other and most of all made each other laugh. I am definitely going to go back and find the first three books to see how Seamus' other siblings found love. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

4.5 Stars! Save Me by Cecy Robson is not your typical relationship of convenience romance. The characters are tangible in every way and being part of their world is emotional, uplifting and affecting. The two main personalities, real estate guru Allie Mendes, and carpenter extraordinaire Seamus O'Brien, develop a quick friendship in order to not be lonely and dateless for the many wedding festivities they have to attend. Allie is an extremely successful workaholic. She treats her employees well and is very kind to everyone she meets. Her mother, sister, and aunts have taunted her for years about every little thing, and as a result, Allie's self-esteem when it comes to anything but business is very poor. Her sister, an international model with a certifiable mean streak, is marrying Allie's ex-boyfriend. The situation is a nightmare. Seamus is one of seven siblings. He is talented, good-looking and loves his family with a vengeance. He is also a womanizer, and his dates tend to be bizarre, crazy, and even dangerous. Dating Allie, a "good" girl, is completely new to him, yet he knows that she may be just what he needs in his life. This is an compelling story and the plot developments are emotional at times. I liked all the characters and I loved getting to know the distinct personalities of the seven O'Brien siblings for a second time. My heart ached for Allie as she dealt with her family's blatant cruelty and her sister's betrayal. Seamus's ability to draw Allie out from her insecurities was inspiring. When Allie and Seamus finally get together, their sexy times are hot, and Ms. Robson does a great job of combining emotion and passion. This is the fifth book from the author's O'Brien Family series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

Cecy Robson is an author that hit the mark with her Weird Girls series. "Save Me" is the fifth in the O'Brien Family collection. Seamus O'Brien is the oldest in a family whose sibling are all paired up with the loves of their lives. Allie Mendes is a successful business women who resides in the shadow of her sister Valentina who is marrying her previous boyfriend Andres. This is a stand alone novel but it spent a great deal of time revisiting the prior O'Brien couples. Characters just fell short for me as did some of the over the top unrealistic events. This was an easy read but one of the books you wish would have been shorter. "A copy of this book was provided by Crushstar Media, LLC via Netgalley with no requirement for a review.

This O'Brien family is a loud and loving family and Seamus is the last of them to find someone to love. He tends to find those who are not suitable and he knows it and his family has deemed he has to find someone suitable to bring to all the wedding functions, and there are a lot of them, in the coming months. A chance meeting in the bakery with Allie Mendez who he doesn't immediately remember, oh he remembers her sister because everyone remembers her sister, but after talking for a few minutes he remembers her as the kind person of his youth who was always there taking care of his siblings and others. When her sister and mother walk into the bakery and she utters, "Save me" he takes that to heart and draws her to him and their charade begins. They are going to be each others boyfriend/girlfriend for the coming months to get through all the family drama but first Seamus is going to transform Allie. "Do you trust me?" he asks her and off they go to find the beautiful, sexy, confident Allie who has been lurking under all that hair and drab clothing. Will all the pretending lead to more? This was so much fun to watch these two find their way and to watch the O'Brien clan in all their loud and brash glory. I am truly sorry to see this series end. It has been a lot of fun! This one, as can all the others, can be read as a standalone. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

***5 Stars*** I did it again. Not only did I pick to read a book in series out of order, but it just so happened to be the LAST book in the series, one I’ve wanted to dive into, but never had the time and now that I did, it was the finale. And before you can think it, Yes, I’m Gibbs smacking myself HARD because I ADORED everything about Save Me. From Seamus and Allie, to the O’Brien clan as a whole. I ADORED everything about this book. I laughed out loud, snorted in amused disbelief and even shed tears because no amount of blinking and willing them to not fall worked. This book had it all and so much more! I adored Seamus. The things that come out of this mans mouth had me either blinking in disbelief or cracking up, sometimes both, or swooning because the honesty and sincerity that went along with it was undeniable. He’s simply a good man, who loves his family and the life that he’s living. Allie, I loved upon meeting her, but there were moments when I wanted so desperately to yell at her to stand up for herself. I understood why she reacted to certain things and people in the way she did, but the frustration was real because the woman I saw was strong, hard working and had such a good heart that I wanted to gut anyone who’d thought it was in their right to bruise and batter it ~ even unintentionally. I loved and thoroughly enjoyed how Seamus and Allie’s relationship evolved from acquaintances to friends and then more.. It was funny, heartwarming and had a lot of heart. Their bantering had me cracking up and the chemistry between them was a slow burn, but a hot one. What made it all work for me was that they just somehow got each other. They were opposites in a lot of ways, and yet they saw beyond all that and really respected each other for who they were at their very souls. Even though I did things half @$& backwards...well, simply backwards really..Save Me can be read as a standalone, but after meeting all of the O’Brien’s and experiencing their special brand of familial love, I will definitely be going back and reading about each of their HEA’s. And though this is my first O’Brien Family read, it isn’t the first of the author’s books I’ve read and as with those, I really enjoyed the writing, pacing and how everything played out with all the characters in the story. There were a couple of twists that I didn’t see coming, but loved the direction it took the story. So, if you’re looking for a well written romance with a cast of crazy, but lovable characters (at least most of them) then this is a definite must read! ~ Copy provided via NetGalley & voluntarily reviewed ~

Shamelessly sexy. Utterly clueless. Hard to resist. Seamus O'Brien feels like the last man standing in a family that's dropping like flies. Love is reeking havoc in his family and he seems to keep missing the blow. That is until the girl he never saw, becomes the woman he can't forget. A chance encounter and a desperate favor have Allie Mendes and Seamus O'Brien rethinking everything they thought they knew about love. Cecy Robson is an emotional writer. She targets the heart with humorous dialogue, tempting romance and a heaping level of sex appeal. Save Me is a saucy tale of lost dreams and second chances that proves happiness is usually where you least expect.
