Book Description

Psychotherapist Maggie Collins has always been a little off the proverbial wall, but now she’s also knee deep in a delayed quarter-life crisis. With her meager paychecks devoured by student loan debt, a car payment, and rent for office space, living at home with a flighty, folk-singing mother seemed like a good idea . . . at first. Now Maggie’s not so sure. She wants space to sort things out and launch a life of her own, but she needs a cushion of cash to get there. When an unexpected phone call brings an offer Maggie can’t refuse, she’s one deal with the devil away from moving out of her mother’s house.

The devil of contract negotiations, baseball agent Jordon Kemmons, has a problem the usual experts can’t fix . . . his star pitcher is too depressed to throw strikes. Even worse, Jordon's post-divorce grudge against women is turning him into a raging mess. If desperate times call for desperate measures, then cynical Jordon has made the most desperate move of all. He's hoping sexy psychotherapist Maggie Collins is the answer to all his rusty prayers.

Soon Maggie and Jordon are fighting an attraction that threatens everything they’ve ever believed. If it’s not just physical attraction . . . if it’s something more, maybe two wrongs can make a right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast and sexy May 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The strong points of this book were the well developed characters and the well written story. This reader could certainly identify with Maggie Collins. When first love happens, how does one distinguish between true love and lust? Maggie travels to North Carolina to help a distressed baseball player and finds herself lost in a soul searching struggle with his she sexually attracted? Has the agent, Jordan, displaced feelings of love for her as a therapist? Has she made a terrible mistake by giving in to her own sexual desires?

The first chapter had me laughing out loud. Maggie and Jordan were at odds and Maggie's sarcasm and sharp wit were evident. The remaining chapters centered around helping Carlos, the ball player, come to grips with his own reality and the sexual tension between free spirited Maggie and not sexually active, Jordan. It wasn't my favorite love story of all time--Maggie seemed to over think things too much. I did enjoy the ending and the changes in the characters as they found their resolutions to the problems at hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Baseball Romance March 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Save My Soul opens with heroine, Maggie, on a date from hell. She's immediately sympathetic, relatable, smart, and considerate. She struggles to combine her years of schooling in psychology with the alternative, "natural" lifestyle her mother raised her in. The result is charming and funny. When she gets the opportunity to counsel a star pitcher, she butts heads with his agent. Jordon Kemmons is "spiritually retarded" but challenging and charismatic.

The supporting characters are just as awesome. Maggie's mother, Crystal, is hilarious. A peace, love, and talisman kind of lady, Crystal goes with the flow and complicates Maggie's already stressful life. Beyond being an amusing minor character, Crystal has her own history and reason for being the way she is, and the home life she created for Maggie is responsible for a lot of Maggie's inner turmoil.

Watching the developing relationship between Maggie and Jordon is enthralling. They're both so complex and try to figure themselves out while they figure each other out. Their connection is so strong, and they really do save each other just by being a mirror. Jordon helps Maggie realize things about herself, and she does the same for him. It's such a fulfilling story, and the character growth is awesome. The ending is a home run!

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable quick read May 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Unorthodox is the word that comes to mind when I think of this original story. It describes the characters, the situations, the treatments, everything. Elley Arden has dared to go where no author has gone before -- well, at least from my experience anyway.

Maggie is an unusual heroine. Raised by a free-spirited crack-pot of a mom, she craves and rejects anything that resembles normal. Even though she seems lost herself, she's a psychotherapist, giving hope and help to others from an oddly jaded vantage point.

Then there's Jordan. He's experienced enough betrayal and emotional pain to fill the Hudson and yet, for all his take-no-prisoners negotiations for the athletes he represents, he's warm and compassionate under his gorgeous tailored suit. It's hard to say who needs this relationship more. I do like a man that knows what he wants and pursues it.

Now the set-up. Jordan's star client, a pitcher in the pros, is having an emotional breakdown and no one can reach him. His arm is off and he's lost his focus. Enter Maggie, in Jordan's house, along with his sobbing guest (her new client). See what I mean? Unorthodox.

Even though the pretense to get Maggie under Jordan's roof was to help the pitcher, Maggie's hands-off approach to her patient -- no organized sessions, etc., struck me as odd. Talking to him through his door when he's hiding out doesn't exactly count as therapy. There was very little going on in that quarter. However, barring that, this was an enjoyable story. Maggie's mother was a colorful and zany character with an odd view of life.

There was plenty to smile about in this quick read.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Home Run May 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
"Save My Soul" is a quick trip around the bases touching on an opposites-attract romance, an athlete with a personal challenge, a mother-daughter relationship that provides much of the book's humor and a happy ending at home plate.

Maggie Collins is a PHD psychologist who's consulted by baseball super agent Jordan Kemmons. His star pitcher has fallen into the slump from hell and needs help. Maggie, who has been living with her hippy-dippy mother Crystal, is almost relieved to have an excuse to go to North Carolina to see what she can do although she has her doubts about Jordan's confidence in her. The banter between Jordan and Maggie is fun to read and even more interesting to follow as their attraction grows.

There are a few twists and turns in the plot but in the end, author Arden does a good job of bringing her characters along in a believable way to the reader's--and the characters'--satisfaction. Fun read.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm telling all my friends! April 1, 2013
By Annie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is too fun to keep to myself.i will be sharing it with my friends. this author hits a "home run " with this first book of The Kemmon Brothers baseball series. Although I found the main characters Maggie and Jordan intriguing, it was the character development of Jordon that surprised me the most. This book kept me hooked with the budding relationship and a few surprising twists. Will be fun for next months book club!!

More About the Author

Elley Arden is a born and bred Pennsylvanian who has lived as far west as Utah and as far north as Wisconsin. She drinks wine like it's water (a slight exaggeration), prefers a night at the ballpark to a night on the town, and believes almond English toffee is the key to happiness.

Elley has been reading romance novels since she was a sixteen-year-old babysitter, sneaking Judith McNaught and Danielle Steele novels off the bookshelves of the women who employed her. To say she'd been sheltered up to that point is an understatement. No one had ever told her women could live bold, love freely, and have sex lives that were exciting and fulfilling. (They don't teach these things in Catholic school!) Now that she knows, she's happy to spread the world. The women she writes about may be fictional, but the success, respect, and love they find on the page is a universal right for women everywhere.

Elley writes books with charming characters, emotional stories, and sexy romance.
