Saving You, Saving Me by Kailin Gow

Friday, May 4, 2012

Sam never thought she would fall for the one mysterious guy she has been speaking to over the phone for months, the boy the counselors called Daggers. She wasn't supposed to talk to him outside of their sessions. But as she began to peel the layers of Daggers and learn who he is, the one boy she is supposed to be saving, might just be the one who is saving her.

Goodreads Summary

Sam is a smart high school girl with an awful lot on her plate.  She takes care of her younger sister while her sometimes drunk mother stumbles around and her pastor father ignores her.  When she meets Collins, she finally believes in love at first sight.  The reader will literally feel her falling for him and vice versa.  Collins is not the ideal partner for a pastor's daughter; he has a rough past, millionaire or not, but the heart is blind.  Sam and Collins tentatively begin to develop a relationship over the course of the book, one full of trials and travails, drama and blessed silence.

The reader will probably be rooting for Collins and Sam.  Sam is hard not to like.  At times, the reader may want to shake her.  For the most part, however, she comes off as an intelligent young woman.  Collins has a past that would have some women leaving him in the dust.  Charismatic and darkly handsome, he is hard to resist, but Sam should still guard her heart.  The other characters really do add to the story.  The reader will enjoy getting to know Sam's friends and co-workers...even some family members. 

The author develops the characters very well.  The reader will feel as if he/she knows them very well and form sort of friendships with them while reading the book.  The plot is constantly changing in a very subtle sense, but enough so as to have the characters dynamically change and grow as well.  Overall, this book is recommended to young adult/adult readers.
