Read Save Me by Ella Col Online


I like drinking. I find that drinking makes me feel less alone. It also numbs the pain. Alcohol is an “old friend”…a trusted friend. However, the alcohol is taking a toll on my relationship with Bree. I’m beginning to notice a pattern. For years, I used alcohol, sex, and music to overcome the “bad feelings”. With the first few sips of alcohol comes an immediate sense of reI like drinking. I find that drinking makes me feel less alone. It also numbs the pain. Alcohol is an “old friend”…a trusted friend. However, the alcohol is taking a toll on my relationship with Bree. I’m beginning to notice a pattern. For years, I used alcohol, sex, and music to overcome the “bad feelings”. With the first few sips of alcohol comes an immediate sense of relief. It’s the only cure. There are times when the first few drinks to take the edge off feel so good. Instead of drinking a few, I drink way too much. When I drink too much, I become a different person…a person Bree does not recognize. In fact, I don’t want her to know that side of me. Keeping up with the drinking is terribly draining. It’s making Bree and me miserable. How can something that makes me feel so good make me feel so bad at the same time? To protect her, I have to do the unimaginable. She’s been through enough. She deserves better. Bree deserves a “Happily Ever After” even if I’m not part of it. I hate myself for what I’m about to do. I’m a failure. I’m a jerk. I’m a loser....

    Bree never expected to trust a man as much as she trusts Josh. She didn’t anticipating falling in love with him. But she did. In an instant, she saw him and she saw hope. For Josh he knew there was something different about her the moment he saw her across the street. But his demons are threatening to escape and destroy everything. Now that they have a chance to breathe again, Josh can’t help but fall back into old patterns. Places where he goes into self-destruct mode – a place where Bree or Eric can’t reach him. It’s a place only he can crawl out of himself. Both of these two are broken from their pasts and only they have the power to change the outcome of their future. Surviving their past is not enough to give them a future – they have to fight to overcome it. Fight to save themselves so they can save each other.The first half of this story had me bawling like a baby. The story wasn’t overly dramatic or complex, it was simple and yet in those moments my heart broke alongside these two. There was just something in the way Ella Col told this story that allowed me to feel every moment of it. I felt like I was fighting alongside these two as they overcame their pasts and although I had no doubts about where they’d end up, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey to get there. I loved the dynamic of Bree gaining strength from finding love with Josh, but Josh seeing just how much loving Bree could destroy him. Not because her love would destroy him, but because losing it would ruin him. It was the perfect mix of emotion, but running parallel to each other – the flip side of the coin but resulting in the same impact.Storylines that touch on abuse can be hit or miss for readers. Some have had the misfortune to experience their own stories and I can understand how some might find it difficult to read someone else’s interpretation of such a relationship. However, no story is the same and I loved that the image that Ella Col painted was not that of a victim but a survivor. Bree was not simply cured of her insecurities and pain, but she was willing to fight for something better. She knew rock bottom and with Josh she knew what it felt like to have everything she ever wanted. She made a choice to take what she wanted and to escape the darkness that could have overtaken her. Seeing Bree’s strength in this story was beautiful. Save Me was like an extended epilogue to Save, it gave me the ending I needed for these two. It gave me the struggle and the imperfections of a love story. It healed fractures of the past, leaving behind scars that gave their journey the perfect story.

    Save Me is the continuation of Josh and Bree's story. It picks up not long after the couple have suffered a horrible, devastating loss. Both are attempting to deal with it in their own ways. Bree is trying to do it the healthy way; Josh isn't. He is drowning his sorrows in the bottom of a bottle which is not helping his relationship with Bree at all. In fact, it appears that it is going to tear them apart forever. This isn't an easy love story to read in the least. In fact, it was hard to read at times. I just loved Josh in the first book, and there were times I hated him in this one. But, in Ella's capable hands, she turns a book of devastating loss into a beautiful book about healing. The road to happiness for these two will be long, painful, and arduous. The pacing of the book was perfect. It wasn't a quick fix, and it was very realistic. Josh and Bree had to deal with their own painful pasts in addition to their loss in order to even attempt to find their way back to each other. I loved the support system they had to help them too. Again, very realistic. You have to have a good support system to fight your demons and live a healthy life. I cannot say how much I loved this book. It deals with some very real issues, and it is my wish that someone who is dealing with the same issues can find some hope and courage in this book and that it could help make a difference in their lives. It has been an awesome experience to see how much Ella has grown as a writer. She just keeps getting better with every book she writes!

    This is a beautiful continuation of Josh and Bree from "Save". It's always a little scary when an author revisits a beloved couple but this is a worthy sequel to their story. You have to have read "Save" to get the most out of this book, but it's no hardship because it was a beautiful story as well.Josh and Bree have been through so much both separately and together, their love is never in doubt, it's true and deep. But they aren't doing so well when it comes to handling it when old fears and feelings rear their heads. Josh deals by drinking and Bree by keeping it inside in her desire to protect Josh, but it's just not working. They have to work through their own issues so they can make their way back to one another. The story flows really well and it's emotional and uplifting as well. I love these two characters together. Along with the angst there are still light humorous moments to. The secondary characters are endearing as well. The story doesn't have an "epilogue" the author wrote the story through to the most satisfying conclusion.No cheating, the separation is not pro-longed and they are working on their relationship during.

    When I read Save and Broken, I couldn't help but think that there wasn't possibly anything else that Josh and Bree could go through. I thought they had conquered all and nothing else could threaten or stand in the way of their happiness together after all that they had already been through. But in Save Me, I was once again pulled in to experience the intensity of their relationship. And I must say, it is just as emotional and captivating as the first. Josh and Bree face more challenges as they struggle to move on from the past. The emotions of each character, whether it be happy or sad or anything in between, seem to pour off of the pages. This is one of those stories that I had to read in one sitting because I couldn't stand to not know what was going to happen to Josh and Bree. I'm looking forward to Eric and Lena's next installment as well, can't wait to see what Ella has in store for us next!

    OMG this book had my emotions all over the place. One minute I was laughing and then the next I was crying. I just can't get enough of Josh and Bree.After suffering a devastating loss both Josh and Bree try to deal with it the best they can but in different ways. Josh keeps turning to the bottle which in return is driving him and Bree apart. I love Josh but let me just tell you there are times in this book I just wanted to beat him!! Will Josh realize what is going on before its to late? Will Josh and Bree find their way back to each other and get the HEA they both deserve?I can't express enough how much I loved this book!! Once I started it I was hooked and couldn't put it down till I got to the end to see how things would play out. I can't wait for Eric and Lena's book to see what Mrs. Col comes up with next!! :)

    I have been in love with Josh ever since I read the first book in this series. This book certainly did not disappoint in any way. I love how strong Josh and Bree both are. They have both overcome so many struggles and have gotten so much stronger in their journey. Josh is not your typical book boyfriend but he is definitely one of my favorites. I love how this book brings all of the characters that we have come to know and love in this series back again. The amount of emotion that Ella Col has packed into this book is beyond breathtaking. I found myself laughing, crying, and completely unable to put my kindle down while I was reading this book. I can’t wait to see what Ella Col has in store for us next with the continuation of Lena and Eric’s story.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the first two instalments if the series, but was truly invested in this one. By the time you start reading Save Me, Josh & Bree are like members of your family. It hurts to see the lengths that they must go through to overcome their pasts. I loved this book. There were times where I was crying, and many when I was literally laughing out loud. (Josh should really leave the jokes to Eric. He is hilarious!)Josh is a tatted and pierced knight in armour. Don't miss out on this excellent read!

    This is the story after the story. What happens after you find your other half? It's not all rainbows and's work, but it's so worth it. Both Bree and Josh have issues they are still working on. Josh is losing his battle and pushes Bree away. But when you're meant to be, love finds a way. This is a great story about facing life's challenges and coming out on top. I absolutely loved the dates.

    This is an excellent story and definitely a book that you NEED to read! Ella Col puts you through an emotional roller coaster with this one! She broke my heart and put me through agony but she slowly glued the pieces back together and kept me hopeful!! I cried multiple times. Josh has a drinking problem and Bree has emotional insecurities from her abusive past. Things become unbearable and Josh thinks Bree deserves better. He believes ending it will make Bree's life easier. Josh hates himself for it. When it seems like they can't endure much more, they get help and get through it! Their family is getting closer, Josh is forgiving his mother for his not so normal childhood and things are finally looking up! Josh and Bree's lives are going better than they ever thought possible, until they get a huge surprise that changes it all. Does it change everything for the better or for the worse? I'm not going to spoil the ending so I recommend you read it to see how they handle the situations life throws at them. Praise to Ella Col for "Save Me", an incredible story that keeps you flipping the pages until the very end. She is remarkably gifted in tapping into your emotions!
