You Saved Me by Rosyln Faulk

"You are love and light. You deserve that in return." You Saved Me.

From the blurb:


In one day, Tristan, an aspiring author, lost his job, his man and his home. With no other options, his

best friend offers him a getaway at her family’s cabin for him to write and heal. What he gets instead is so much more. Starting with his best friend's brother pulling a gun on him. To say he doesn’t like the guy is an understatement.


An FBI agent placed on administrative leave after a very tough case. What better way to unwind than visit his secluded family cabin in the mountains of Georgia? While he expects to be alone, he finds a strange man in his home. One that doesn’t like him and the feeling is mutual.

With forced proximity, sparks may fly. But a darkness in Lucas’s past may end things before they start.

You Saved Me is an 83k enemies-to-lovers, romantic thriller with a hot FBI agent, a seriously broken author and his strong willed best friend that has a problem following directions. No cliffhanger and guaranteed HEA.

Miki.J's Review:

This story is bit of a mixed bag – romance trope with the one cabin, stranded storyline with a bit of hate to love thrown in….. and then there is the mystery/suspense aspect which came in after.  

When I started reading this book, I thought it was going to be a romantic contemporary story, and then the suspense/mystery aspect popped up. Threw me a bit but it was a pleasant surprise that added another layer to the story. And I also loved characters - Tristan trying to sort out his life after a really bad horrible day, I mean, that was a truly epic bad day!! Then we meet Lucas - FBI agent in a burnout spiral and is suffering ....and the initial meeting between them, yikes....... but that obviously changes.  

The book is really good - the world building, intense storyline, well paced with surprises and twists.  

The characters are well written and I like that they aren't "perfect" - they each have their own issues to work through, which made them so relatable.

Lesetiger's Review:

This was my first book by the author and I would love to read more. Tristan has had a very bad day when he gets fired. At home much earlier than planned, he catches his partner in bed with someone else and takes the consequences. I could sympathize with Tristan very well and I loved that he has such a great girlfriend in Cass. She sends Tristan to her family's cabin, where he can lick his wounds. 

Cass' brother Lucas has been working on a intense case at the FBI that is now giving him nightmares. To get some distance, the cabin is his intended destination. Of course, he meets Tristan there and their first encounter is not very pleasant. 

The story is written alternately from the first-person perspective of Tristan and Lucas. I liked both characters a lot, but for different reasons. What I found very positive was the interaction between Tristan and Lucas, because it was very honest from the beginning. That was probably also the reason why they both quickly fell in love with each other. However, due to the drama that Tristan had before, it was almost a tad too fast for me, but that is of course a matter of taste. 

The story was very dark in between, because Lucas' case is against all expectations not yet closed and it gets really exciting again. I was well entertained, there was plenty of drama and tears, serious issues, but also a wonderful friendship and of course romance. 

I enjoyed the book, it was entertaining and diverting.
