Saving Each Other - #SavingEachOther Book Review and Giveaway


Saving Each Other (Saving Series, Book 1) by Stacy Mitchell 
ISBN: 9781974591718 (paperback)
ASIN: B07CLDKKQG (Kindle edition)
Publication Date: May 15, 2018 (re-release date)

Two hearts, two souls. Devastated by loss, united through destiny. 

The rules: Communicate only through text messages and never reveal our real names or other personal details.

My name is Ean Montgomery. After the drunk-driving accident that killed my wife, son, and unborn daughter, I was forced to see a grief counselor. In an unconventional move, she gave me a private cell phone and the first initial of the name of a woman who had been widowed by the same accident. I had no intention of ever texting her but with all hope and the will to live gone, I found myself quickly slipping down the rabbit hole. Desperate, lonely, and unbelievably sad, I reached out to her and she became my everything.

Everything is excruciating! Everything is broken!

My name is Dani Adams. I was married to my college sweetheart, the love of my life. Together we were raising our four-year-old daughter and running a successful business. Then the accident happened and life as I knew it ended in the blink of an eye. I didn't want to answer his text but I was barely hanging on by a thread and he was in tremendous pain, so I replied. And once again, my world was forever changed.
I can't lose you, I won't survive…

Over the course of a year, through texting alone, we bond. Friendship blossoms into something deeper. We were never supposed to meet, but fate had other plans, and into this world of loss and despair, something amazing began to grow… But can the passion we've found sustain itself with the deep, soul-twisting pain that never seems to fade?  

My Review:

This is the first book that's supposed to be part of a series and, after reading Saving Each Other, I'm excited to see what author, Stacy Mitchell, comes up with in her next books.  Saving Each Other is the first novel for the author but her writing skill and character development is on par with that of seasoned writers.

Saving Each Other is a novel that is told in point-of-view perspective.  Ean and Danielle had near-perfect lives with their own families and were quite content.  Then their worlds came tumbling down and they realized that life can turn at the drop of a dime.  Their grief is insurmountable and both start a form of therapy that entails communicating over phone.  The pair are not to exchange overly personal information, and are there only to provide grief comfort to each other.  That works for a while but, as time passes, they find that they are developing a bond.  Ean and Danielle have life situations that come to pass and, oddly enough, some of them involve each other without them even knowing it.

I've read several books in my time and I couldn't count how many of them I've enjoyed.  But there's very few books that absolutely pull at my emotions and leave me so affected.  There were a couple parts in Saving Each Other where I was actually crying.  I was so sucked in to what the characters were going through.

The ending was a cliffhanger, which I'm not a big fan of.  I don't like being left not knowing the full outcome.  The author needs to hurry up and write the second novel in the series!
