Saved by You
by Kimberly Daniels


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Cole Stevens thought he was finally given a second chance in life.
With the woman he always loved now by his side, an adopted son who felt like his own since the day
he met him, and a baby on the way, Cole could finally see his forever.
And then his past showed up on his doorstep, threatening to take it all away.

Now forced to relive painful memories and bring dark secrets to light,
Cole begins a downward spiral that leads him back to the place he spent years trying to escape.
As the pain of his past collides with the present, he finds himself lost again,
fighting for his family's future. How can he find the way back in time for his forever to be saved?

EXCERPT
I let go of him and he falters back. Dusty wraps his arms around me to pull me back and Camryn
is begging me to stop. Her voice registers, sinking through the fury that just consumed me,
and my head snaps up realizing where I am. Camryn’s hands are over her mouth and I can see her
fighting back tears. And that’s when I see him, my little superhero, crying and shaking at Camryn’s
side. My sweet little boy, my Gavin—how could I let myself get to this point? 

I reach out to him and he shudders back, sinking into Camryn even more.
At that moment, my heart shatters, seeing that my son, the one I vowed to protect,
is afraid of the menace I just became. My gaze travels to Camryn and I see the pain in her eyes,
which I am sure I put there. “Take him home, away from me.” 

She reaches her hand and grasps my wrist, pulling me with her. “Come home with us.” 

I pull my hand away and begin to back away from them. “Take him home without me.
Right now, he’s afraid…of me.” I can’t bear to stay here and look at what I did to Gav and Camryn,
to see that the old Cole has never really left. I rush off the beach, away from my family,
the ones I disappointed again with my thoughtless actions. I try to grasp the realization that I’m no
longer the superhero Gavin once thought I was. Today, I became the villain.

My Review
Saved By You is the second book in the Finding You series.
Having not known that, nor having read the first book, I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to follow
along. But, thankfully, Saved By You is a relatively easy book to read as a standalone,
although I do think reading book one first might make it even better.
I found the characters in the story to be realistic and well-written.
You can easily imagine them as people you may know, or people you've seen before on the street
or in a restaurant or somewhere like that. Cole definitely has his ups and downs,
and there were a couple of times where I wanted to shake him and tell him to stop acting like a jerk
and be the bigger man.
Camryn is a saint, putting up with Cole's nonsense at times, but also for being the person who does,
in fact, save more than one person from their past.
The plot itself is engaging and keeps readers immersed in the lives of the characters.
From dealing with dark moments from the past, working through the issues that pop up in the present,
and everything in between, these characters tackle them in their own way.
If you're looking for a romance novel with a happy ending and characters who will resonate with
readers, or if you're a fan of book one, definitely give Saved By You a chance.
4 stars!
