Review: Save Me - Cecy Robson
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.

Save Me is the final book in Cecy Robson's O'Brien Family series and it was a fitting ending that gave us a chance to catch up with the previous couples as well as see Seamus finally get his own happily ever after. I have to admit Seamus took a while to grow on me, he has a very high opinion of himself and that makes him come across as rather cocky and arrogant in the beginning of the story but luckily there is more to him than that and he can actually be really sweet when you get to know him.
Seamus always wanted to get married and have a family but the women he's usually attracted to are more likely to steal from him than settle down. With a whole bunch of family wedding's coming up he's sick of his family meddling in his love life so he needs a fake girlfriend to keep them all off his back. Allie is the perfect woman for the job, a successful business woman who takes time out of her life to volunteer at church and help others she's nothing like the normal girls he's brought home to meet his family. She's also in her own sticky situation having to watch her sister marry her own ex-fiance so she could use some back up herself.
Allie was the sweetest girl, she spends all her time and energy helping others but has very little confidence in herself so it was wonderful to see her come out of her shell with Seamus' help. They got on really well and made a perfect couple but he was worried about not being good enough for her so was worried about telling her how he really felt. I love the whole O'Brien family and how welcoming they were towards Allie, the banter has been amusing throughout the whole series and the three family weddings we got to witness were all very heartwarming and fitting for the different couples. Allie's family on the other hand were absolutely awful and I was so glad to see her finally stand up to them. I'm kind of sad that we're not getting a book about the oldest brother Angus, he obviously put a lot of his life on hold to care for his mother and younger siblings and I'd have loved to see him get a happy ending with his finance of 20 years Molly. It did seem like the two of them were happier now but I still feel like that's a bit of an unfinished thread in the series.
I've still enjoyed all of these stories though and I'm looking forward to seeing what Cecy Robson comes up with next.
