Save Me by Amanda Heath Blog Tour with review and giveaway

SaveMe_TourBanner (1)
Save Me can be read as a standalone.
“I don’t care! Do you hear me? I don’t care Pierce!” She screams at me. She is pissed and breathing fire. She has never looked so beautiful to me. Well when I can see her face and she isn’t turning away from me.
“You care. You can pretend you don’t, but you do. You came all the way out here.” I pause grabbing her hand and swinging her around to face me. “You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t care.” I’m breathing fire now myself, but I don’t care. I pull her closer, until her chest touches mine. I cup my hands around her jaw and lean down to whisper against her lips, “You made me, you broke me, now you’re going to freaking save me.”
Courtney Pierce never thought he would love anyone but Annabella Gage. She was his entire world for eleven years. Even though she was dating his older brother, he couldn’t seem to let her go. Then things shifted and lines became blurred. Pierce wasn’t sure whose bed Annabella should be in anymore.
But Annabella has secrets. Dark secrets she will do anything to protect. So like the crazy witch that she is, she rips Pierce’s heart to shreds and devastates his soul. He’s left with the emotional wreckage and no way out in sight.
Then Rachel Sanders drop kicks into his life. The beautiful brunette is utterly hard to resist and one night of intense passion leads to an unexpected surprise. A surprise that has all their friends shocked, because Rachel and Pierce couldn’t be more different.
Now he’s left with one option and it doesn’t include Annabella. Rachel, though, is full of surprises and Pierce finds their relationship so incredibly easy. Way easier than what he had with Annabella. So easy he finds he didn’t even know what love was before Rachel.
But like any twisted love story, Pierce is hiding dark secrets, too. Secrets that he feels will rip he and Rachel apart. When push comes to shove will Pierce spill those secrets? And if he does, will they separate the new lovers before they even have a chance to begin?
Much like Pierce and Annabella, someone else has something to hide. Let’s hope Rachel sticks around because when this secret comes out. , she’ll be the only one who can save Pierce.

My Review
Save Me is book 3 in the Make or Break series. While it can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading the first two books because all of the characters from the previous books play a part in Save Me. The first chapter can be kind of confusing if you dont have previous knowledge of the characters. With that being said, Save Me is Rachel and Pierce's (Courtney) story.

Since finishing Break Me, I have been anxiously awaiting Pierce's story and let me tell you...Amanda did not disappoint. I knew it was going to be good but i wasn't prepared for the wave of emotions that rolled through me while reading this.

Courtney Pierce has been in love with Annabella for most of his life. We would do anything for her, and proved that point over and over again with his actions. In Save Me we get a deeper look into why Pierce is the way is his with Annabella...what happened between them that led to their relationship being what it was from Pierce's eyes. But she turned out to be a psycho with who broke his heart.

When Rachel found out that she was cheated on by her boyfriend Kellan, they broke up and she showed up at Pierce's house seeking comfort in someone who was hurting like she was. That comfort turned into something physical instead of emotional.

""I don’t think I've ever seen anything this beautiful. Rachel Sanders is lying on my bed, mostly naked,
and looking at me like I’m a fucking god." 

And this is how Annabella ends up pregnant. This all comes as a shock to their friends considering that Rachel and Pierce weren't even friends. I loved that Pierce stepped up to the plate and did what was right, something that you don't often see right a way in books . I enjoyed watching Rachel and Pierce come to terms with their situation and decide how to handle it like mature adults.

This story is told from Pierce's POV which really adds to the emotional element of the story. He really is quite the softy, but he has experienced too much heartache for his young age. My heart broke for him over and over. I wanted, no needed for him to get the HEA that he deserved. And he found it with Rachel, who is the perfect girl for him. 

"Annabella never had the power to destroy me because I never had the real, whole, Annabella. I only had the fake bitch one. Rachel though, if we really truly go anywhere in this relationship, she could destroy me" 

She is a spitfire with a take no sh*t kinda attitude. I would have liked to see a little more of them "falling in love" though. The supporting characters add a lot to the story as well. The author has the ability to make you feel as if the characters are real, and you are right there with them on their journey. This book was both sweet and sexy, with the perfect amount of angst and drama thrown in the mix. I love all of these characters and I am anxious to see what Amanda has in store for us next!

So when life couldn’t seem to get more complicated, life threw Rachel Sanders at me. Before that night seven weeks ago, I didn’t think much about Rachel. I just knew her twin brother was best friends with Channing Southerland.
When I say I didn’t think much, I mean I didn’t give any thought as to talk to Rachel or be around Rachel. I’ve always thought the chick was hot. Long brown hair, red and blonde highlights shining in the sun. Amazing brown eyes with flecks of gold and green. They look like they hold all her secrets, but you have no hope of finding out any of them. Then you have that body. Great tits that are followed by a flat stomach and wide hips. Plus her incredible ass, which I admit, I have checked out a million times. Then you have those legs, legs that go on for miles. I can’t help but think of those legs wrapped around me. When I say me, I mean around my hips, or around my face. It doesn’t matter, I’m not a picky guy.
I even find the way she dresses sexy. Annabella dresses like an uptight rich bitch. Her fashion choices are the most expensive and up to date. Rachel, you can tell, dresses like she has money, but it’s not in your face. Plus, she adds in a lot of skulls and pink. I find this a weird combination but it works for her.
Rachel’s voice….mmmm. The way her soft words flow through my ears and around my head, it’s like talking to an angel. Wes says she can sing, and I don’t doubt that for a minute. I also like the way Rachel’s voice sounds when she’s getting off. Mews, moans, whimpers, it doesn’t matter. I’ve never taken someone like her to my bed. Someone who knows what they want and isn’t afraid to ask for it. Everyone else is a cold bitch or way too submissive. They don’t even compare.
“Court…” Rachel would whisper against my neck. No one has ever called me by my first name with me liking it. Rachel, I’ve found, could do and say a lot of things around me I don’t usually like and BAM! I like everything that comes out of her mouth. She’s fucking funny and dorky. She talked the whole night except when I was inside her or until she finally fell asleep. And then I did something else I never do; I let her sleep there.
I’m not stupid. I knew Rachel wouldn’t stay.

I live in southern Arkansas with my husband and young daughter. There is also an insane Boston Terrier running around. I've always been a lone wolf and find my friends in books. I started writing at a young age and I haven't stopped since. Most days you can find me either glued to my laptop or my kindle. My first novel, This Beautiful Thing was an Amazon best seller for 11 weeks and a year later I'm still tickled to see people enjoy it. I may not be a huge seller but I have the best fans ever and I thank God everyday for every single one of them.
