Book Length (Est.): 189 Pages
Psychotherapist Maggie Collins has always been a little off the proverbial wall, but now she’s also knee deep in a delayed quarter-life crisis. With her meager paychecks devoured by student loan debt, a car payment, and rent for office space, living at home with a flighty, folk-singing mother seemed like a good idea . . . at first. Now Maggie’s not so sure. She wants space to sort things out and launch a life of her own, but she needs a cushion of cash to get there. When an unexpected phone call brings an offer Maggie can’t refuse, she’s one deal with the devil away from moving out of her mother’s house.
The devil of contract negotiations, baseball agent Jordon Kemmons, has a problem the usual experts can’t fix . . . his star pitcher is too depressed to throw strikes. Even worse, Jordon’s post-divorce grudge against women is turning him into a raging mess. If desperate times call for desperate measures, then cynical Jordon has made the most desperate move of all. He’s hoping sexy psychotherapist Maggie Collins is the answer to all his rusty prayers.
Soon Maggie and Jordon are fighting an attraction that threatens everything they’ve ever believed. If it’s not just physical attraction . . . if it’s something more, maybe two wrongs can make a right.
*I received this book free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review*
Maggie is quite the unique person. On the surface she seems kinds of flakey, but she’s sweet and caring and she knows how to love like no one else…even if she doesn’t realize it. Jordon, on the other hand, is like her polar opposite. He’s intimidating and sometimes cold, but she’ll call him on it every time.
When Jordan offers Maggie just the job she needs to get out of her financial problems and away from her wishy-washy mom she takes it, but her first day there has her wishing she hadn’t. Jordan drives her insane, which says a lot considering her profession, but she’s there to help Carlos, and she’ll put his well-being above her own discomfort.
Jordan has a secret. He’s wanted Maggie since the first time he saw her. She’s his balance and he has never felt for anyone the way he feels for her. Now all he has to do is convince her of that.
Save My Soul had me hooked from the first page. The first chapter had me laughing hysterically and I couldn’t put it down until I hit the last page. The emotional ride is bumpy, but the passion between them is intense.
My Favorite Laughable Moments: The first conversation between Maggie and Jordon and the…spider. OMG! The way they spoke to each other and the way the spider kept interrupting had me laughing so hard I was in tears.
Between that and the conversation that took place in the grocery story – poor toothpaste woman – I was dying. Literally, tears were rolling down my cheeks.
My Favorite Moment: The pier. The moment thoughts get pushed aside and actions take over.
