Avery Mason had it all: the nice house, the fancy clothes, the expensive cars and the perfect husband. On the outside looking in, her life appears to be perfect. But inside, Avery knows her life is far from perfection as her husband's carefully constructed façade slowly starts to crumble.
Forced to fake a happy marriage while enduring physical and mental abuse from the man who had once been her whole world is taking its toll. And ever so slowly, Avery finds herself slipping into an existence where she is gradually becoming a shell of her former self.
When Dr. Max Harrison transfers from Chicago to North Carolina, his world is flipped upside down the moment he sees Avery. With one glimpse into her blue-gray eyes, he can see the pain she is so desperately hiding from the rest of the world. As Avery attempts to push him away, he becomes convinced that there is more to her than meets the eye. And when he finally uncovers her darkest secret, the pieces of the puzzle slowly start to click into place.
Max and Avery want to be together, but nothing in life is ever that simple. It's not going to be easy to get her away from the powerful Mason family, but Max will risk everything to protect her. His only concern is Saving Avery.

Saving Avery is one of these books I knew I would love, just by reading the blurb. I already read two books Angela Snyder wrote and each time, it was a real pleasure. I enjoyed the writing and the story so much. And today, I am glad to talk to you about Saving Avery. As you can see, this is not an easy story to read, meaning the topics are sensitive. Domestic violence is an awful and monstruous thing, one of the worst a human can do to another. So I really wanted to read a story where it was about saving. And here it is, thanks to Angela !
For the third time, I'm impressed by Angela's writing. I think it must have been really hard to tell the story of Avery and Max, but she did very well. There was no cliché, it was balanced, the romance felt realistic and so beautiful. Right after I started this novel, I cared deeply for the characters and that's thanks to the way Angela wrote her book.
There were moments when I wanted to skip a few pages cause I hated feeling Avery's pain and fear. As Max said it, she only deserved the best, and he gave her that. What a great, beautiful and loving person he is ! You will fall for him too, not just becaue he was the exact opposit of Avery's abusive husband. He was a true hero, no need of a shining armor and a white horse.
Beside the parts where Avery wasn't happy, the whole book really was about saving Avery and for her, to find back who she was before she met Nathan. It was fun, lighthearted and hot too. I could get into Avery's skin and I was truly delighted to watch her discovering love and pleasure. It was a long way to get home, to get to Max, but in the end, the story and characters were well developped and interesting.
What can I say besides you have to read Saving Avery ! I was given an Arc in exchange of an honest review and I'm happy I didn't miss this excellent book. I think it was, even if there were dark moments, a positive, intense and moving story. Angela Snyder became one of my favorite authors right after I read Vampire Next Door, and every time I read a new story be her, it confirms that. Saving Avery's publication is on the 21st of July and right now you can preorder for only 2.99$ !
Happy reading !
