RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in SAVE ME, it’s time for Seamus, the family’s most notorious bachelor, to find true love.
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.

If you’re a fan of this series, the Acknowledgement will make you sad. But like any family, you can visit them again and again. If have a time where you need a book with a sense of family or just need a good laugh, this series will do that for you.
Seamus O’Brien shows the reader what we love about this series. You may have the words “rude” and “crude” come to mind as we get to know him but he will always get you to laugh. Alegria “Allie” Mendes doesn’t want to deal with family right now.
There are some nationalities where food brings a family together. And I get that sense here – I can almost smell the food that the O’Brien’s love to cook already. You feel as if you are a part of family gatherings watching all the back and forth banter that siblings have. Some get very emotional and you will see the emotions play out throughout this story – especially as you get toward the end. As you get to that very last word you’ll have a smile but it will be bittersweet. But unless something happens to my library, I can revisit anytime.
Some characters don’t catch you in the right way when you’re first introduced to them but I hope you’ll give Seamus a chance. He’s rough around the edges but that’s part of who he is. And if you like the other members of the O’Brien family, what’s not to love. Allie is a great complement to Seamus – they are total opposites. It was fun to watch her blossom.
This is a series that you could read out of order since they all seem to be a standalone but if you want to really get to know the family at some point you’ll want to make sure and read all the books. It’s also a great introduction to the author if you’ve never read her work before. And once you finish with the O’Brien’s make sure to check out what else Ms. Robson has to offer.
I walk into the bakery and wave to Cara, the young women at the counter. She doesn’t notice me, appearing preoccupied with the man leaning over the counter. His stance appears relaxed there is a coiled energy and alertness lurking beneath, appearing ready for anyone and anything.
As I venture further in, the display of cannolis and fresh baked goods catch my attention albeit briefly. Something about the man flirting with Cara is familiar.
My attention travels away from the display and fixes like glue on him, lingering longer than it politely should. Dark jeans gather around rather long and impressive legs, skimming the top of what appear to be expensive running shoes. He must be one of those men who run all the time, through snow and rain to maintain his strong, bordering on immense stature.
His musculature isn’t that of a weight-lifter or someone I’m certain at one point religiously played football, but it is one that proclaims his athleticism and a take-no-nonsense attitude. Broad muscles fill out the tight, dark blue T-shirt, warning those who would dare to start a fight that this man who wouldn’t go down without taking someone already bleeding with him.
I know him, I think to myself, and it’s not from the cover of some sports magazine. Familiarity and curiosity keep my interest. I can’t see his face, but it must be some spectacle of beauty for Cara to be so engrossed by it and not everything else this man has to offer.
