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.

I had an absolute ball reading "Save My Soul" – a book about way more than baseball. Here are the details: Maggie has been barely hanging on, living with her hippy-trippy-mom and jumps at the chance to work with a star baseball pitcher in a slump. She's not so keen on the player's agent, Jordan Kemmons who may have more faith in Maggie than she does. Between her complicated relationship with her mom, the issues facing the player and the growing attraction to a man who shouldn't be the right guy for her, Maggie is thrown completely out of her comfort zone. I loved the relationship aspect between Maggie and her mom. And the sparks between Maggie and Jordan were as bright as summer fireworks.  I really enjoyed Elley Arden's debut book and can't wait to read more!

Save my Soul was an inspiring story about a feisty psychologist, Maggie who is offered a job by sports agent Jordan Kemmons. Jordan has a dilemma, his star pitcher is depressed and Jordan needs him back on his game. Maggie and Jordan have an intense attraction to one another that is hard to ignore. This story has some great moments, outstanding supporting characters, and a truly wonderful storyline. Between laughing at or with Crystal, Maggie’s hippie mom, to wanting to hit a few baseball players upside the head this story is always entertaining and never boring. Elley Arden is a dynamic writer that really helps the reader to understand the characters and how they are feeling. Save my Soul is a novel about the power of hope and love. A beautiful start to a new series! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Elley pens"Save My Soul" in an unique and original plot that is full of hardships and romance with a touch of humor. With strong, well developed characters that had some great chemistry throughout, I fell in love with this book from the very first chapter. A really enjoyable read that will captivate you from the start and should be on everyone's TBR list. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

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.

Gosh, I loved Save My Soul. It was such a fun, warm, insightful read. I myself am a vegetarian who doesn't kill spiders, so maybe that's why I found myself instantly identifying with Maggie. She's much more enlightened than me, but I loved going on her journey with her. She's convinced that romantic love is a myth and she avoids attachment. I knew she'd need help changing her mind about that, and I relished watching Jordon help ease her out of her faulty thinking. Jordon was the kind of guy I wouldn't like, but with a deft hand Ms. Arden managed to give him a steady, believable course of change throughout the story. I've got a towering stack of books in my TBR pile, so any time one doesn't grab me and keep me I just toss it aside. Save My Soul kept me up past my bedtime so I could spend more time with the characters. Very well done!

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!
