One phone call can change your whole life. 

Emma Taylor thought she left Cedar Lake behind and the boy who broke her heart along with it but…

Fate had other ideas.

Tragedy has brought me back to this small Texas town where everything and nothing has changed. The nothing being I still find myself attracted to the boy, now man, who ruined me all those years ago. 

I shouldn’t want him. I know what it’s like to be burned by him, but… I can’t deny the pull of Braz Huntswell, especially now that I’m his daughter’s teacher. 

Brazos Huntswell’s life didn’t turn out how he planned in high school. He was supposed to leave Cedar Lake and chase his college baseball dreams before coming home to take over his family’s cattle ranch. 

Two pink lines on a piece of plastic was the fly ball out of nowhere.

Being a single dad is tough. Being a single dad to a hormonal teenage daughter should qualify me for sainthood. Not only that, I’m trying to keep my family’s legacy alive. 

I gave up on love after my ex-wife left me to shoulder everything on my own. But that all changed when I hear her voice on the other end of the phone… The one who got away, well, the one I pushed away—Emma Taylor, my Red. 

Cedar Lake isn’t the town they once knew, and people are turning up dead. Someone doesn’t want Braz and Emma together, and they’d do anything to keep them apart… permanently.

What Others Are Saying...

 "Deeply raw and devastatingly beautiful, Saving Me shattered my heart from the start and then slowly put the pieces back together again. This story is so ACHINGLY HONEST, REFRESHINGLY REAL, and BREATHLESSLY HEARTBREAKING!!! 

- Karen McVino, Bookalicious Babes Blog- Saving Me

Wow, I love this book! A beautifully uplifting coming-of-age story with a vulnerable yet strong heroine that you cannot help but love, and an absolutely gorgeous YA romance that had my heart pounding, and a huge smile on my face. 


Ally’s story captivated me from start to finish. I loved her as a character, and I thought this was a beautifully written story of family, friendship and love, of learning who you are and fighting for what you truly want.


Absolutely beautiful – 5 stars!

You know that you have found the perfect book when you find that you can relate to the story and characters in such a way that it feels like the author could be retelling your own story. We are allowed access to the very soul of Ally, and we can feel her emotional despair, her hopes, desires and what will ultimately be life changing moments. I wept for her, felt anger for her, but I also felt moments of extreme happiness for her. The reflective message contained within the pages of this book will stay with readers of all ages.

Laura Hernandez, YA Book Divas - Saving Me


"This book was hella melodramatic “to the nth degree”—the amount of drama in this book could have kept a teenage soap/drama from The CW spoon-fed for a complete season."

Goodreads Reviewer- Maybe Never


SAVING ME by Sadie Allen is a beautiful story of finding strength, trusting in others and learning what love truly is, whether it is romantic or familial. Prepare to have your emotions twisted, to become angry, to smile and to have hope for the future of these characters.

Dianne, Tome Tender Book Blog


This is a gorgeously written mature YA book - an emotional, dramatic and romantic story that deals with some pretty heavy themes, but that is also sweet, funny and uplifting. This book captivated me from start to finish, and I loved it!
