Alexandra Page truly entrances her readers in her newest book Save Me (Magnolia Series Book I). Save Me follows the beginning stages of love as well as the journey towards healing after tragedy strikes Ellie Cochran. Elle is new to Savannah when she first meets Nikolas Jensen in a local Starbucks. Ellie fiercely believes she is beyond saving but when a robbery goes bad Nik puts his life on the line to save Elle, giving her hope that perhaps she was wrong.
What I love most about this book is that you see every step to their love story and you feel every moment, every emotion, with the characters as Ellie slowly allows herself to open her heart to Nik. Along with their passionate attraction for one another their personalities balance each other in a believable and vivid romance. What is unexpected are the secrets and tragedies that lie in Ellie’s past causing her deeply felt doubt and fears as her budding relationship continues to grow.
Although the characters are loveable and personable I had a difficult time relating to the character of Ellie because of my personality clashing with hers. I am not a crier by any stretch of the imagination but Ellie expresses her loss, love, hope, and anger all with tears. So if you are a crier yourself this will be endearing, but if you are not this book might feel a little overdone in the waterworks area. That being said Save Me is a wondrous read that brings a reader on a roller coaster of emotions, a journey towards love and self-growth, and inspires the reader to a personal strength of heart.
