Saving You, Saving Me By: Kailin Gow

 This is an overdue Review, but here you go :)


First, here's a Book Description Via Goodreads

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.

Saving You Saving Me inspired the Saving You Saving Me Project found at: 
http://www.SavingYouSavingMe.com


The Saving YOU Saving ME Project was inspired by the book, which tells the story of Samantha (Sam) Sullivan, who becomes a peer counselor at a teen and young adult crisis center called Sawyer House. The Saving YOU Saving ME Project tries to replicate the atmosphere of Sawyer House by allowing a place for teens through adults a place to share their issues anonymously and in doing so, might be able to help others learn from it or might receive feedback from people about what to do.




My Review

This was, all in all, a very good story. Some of it though, even though it's a sort of a different age group and does not involve many sex scenes, it just reminds me of a certain erotica trilogy; just some though, I mean the plot is essentially different and I did like, that it was authentic, in a few ways. 

There were some scenes, where I wish, there was more closure to, where there was more showing than telling. It seems like there was not that much of descriptive transitions between scenes, or chapters; this is what I thought personally. I think the characters were written all right. I think it was great that this whole story was from Sam's POV, but again, I just wish that certain scenes had more to add on, instead of abrupt closures. I also believe, there could have been more depth in the characters' feelings, to just really feel what they feel, because, it sometimes didn't seem believable; like the scene just moved too fast without really feeling anything toward the character(s). I felt like this in the beginning towards the middle of the story; I just didn't feel any sort of connection, but I do feel there was more story and more feeling, toward the end. 

I felt there was a flow, at times, but not always. I did like that Sam was interested in the psychology field and genuinely wanted to help others with their problems and there are a few scenes where you will see this. I do look forward to reading the next story, as I'm interested to see what happens next. 

My Rating: 3/5
I say a Strong PG-13 Rating (Sexual Situations & Some Language)
