Blog Tour: Saving You Saving Me by Kailin Gow

Hey!  Thanks for stopping by the blog for our tour stop for
Saving You Saving Me by Kailin Gow,
hosted by AToMR Tours!

18 year old high school senior and aspiring psychologist Samantha Sullivan (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.

I have no idea where to start with this review… I suppose that I can start it just by saying “amazing”.  Everything about Saving You Saving Me was both adorable, deep and innovative.  From the addictive start to the ending that had me dying for more, Saving You Saving Me definitely one of those novels that leaves readers thinking long after the story ends. For those of you who don’t know, the novel is about eighteen year old main character Sam Sullivan who is the perfect daughter. She’s a preacher’s daughter who is trying to balance her new career and family and is trying to forget her dark past. But as the story progresses, we learn that Sam’s life is far from perfect and that she will have to help Daggers, a boy she doesn’t know who has serious issues. And as the cute title says: She’s saving him, but he might be saving her in the process.

Come on! If you don’t think that that has at least some serious cuteness then… why so serious? From the start of the novel, we are introduced not only to an awesome-sauce prologue, but also get introduced to Collins the perfect, sexy and attractive male lead character who manages to snag Sam’s heart from the awkward/cute moment that they meet. Personally, I found that as the story progresses it took nearly half of the novel for the story to include and introduce us to Daggers. I don’t want to say too much because this review is spoiler free so I will simply say that: Daggers has a past that some readers may or may not be able to connect with, but readers will have emotions stirring regardless.

Something that I feel I should add into this review is that, while the novel is cute as heck and is romantic as ever. Lucky for all of us Saving You Saving Me is going to be a trilogy—and personally I cannot wait to read the sequel which will hopefully have more Collins, Sam, Daggers and romance. The one thing that some readers may be sensitive to and that is the slight (and I mean slight because it is pretty miniscule) mature content that was used in the story, most of the mature content being included in Daggers and Sam’s dark pasts. I would recommend this story to fans of YA contemporary and YA romance. Saving You Saving Me is a quick read that is definitely worth a try.



Collins McGregor stood still for a while, his grin gone. “You have quite a low opinion of me, don’t you?”

I shrugged. “I think you’re arrogant and smug. You probably grew up with a silver spoon in your mouth and don’t even know the value of a dollar.”

Collins McGregor’s face went from serious to hurt, and I immediately regretted what I had said. “I’m sorry,” I said. “I shouldn’t have…”

“You said what was on your mind, Miss Sullivan,” Collins McGregor said, his voice tinged with sadness and anger. “But, you have no idea what you’re talking about,” his eyes flashed.

I swallowed. I knew I went too far, but he was such an arrogant good-looking golden boy with his millions, perhaps billions, heck gazillions, I don’t know and I couldn’t care less, that I had to let him have it. My mouth went dry, and I had to lick my lips again.

Collins McGregor’s gaze went to my lips, and I felt a rush go through me as I saw him fixate on my mouth. I have heard of people having one-night stands, and although I could not understand it before, I now understood how people can end up having sex with each other only after meeting them within minutes. The way Collins McGregor was looking at me, and the way my entire body felt while he was looking at me, I knew why people could jump to “hi” to “bed” in an instant. I licked my lips again because of the nervous heat I was feeling.  That was the kind of chemistry that flew between us.

    This sounds awesome! I saw the book before – I think I had it in my Fresh Batch – but never really looked much into it. Collins sounds full of awesome and it’s actually great that it’s a series! I don’t see that as often in contemps! Great review!
