Saving Brad 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.
BookDragonGirl 8 months ago
I love the Kennedy Boys series. Most people who follow my reviews, tweets, blog posts, Facebook posts, etc, probably know this of me by now. BUT I had a hard time with starting this book. Going in I knew it wouldn’t be a favorite, because I’ve never been a fan of Brad. I even questioned why he was getting his own book if he was not a Kennedy! A novella ok, but a book? BUT I am a very big fan of Siobhan’s writing and I trusted her and tried to have an open mind. But, the first 30% of the book had me questioning my judgement!!! Ugh!! But then there was a shift in the story and things started to change, and I became very involved!! I love Rachel!! She is a very strong person and throughout the book I came to like her even more!!! Whereas with Brad....I didn’t like him, not really at all!! But I came to like him. Rachel is good for him. They were good for each other. Oh....I have to insert this here....I think Faye would be the coolest chic to have as a friend!! She’s an AWESOME, LOYAL, CARING friend and the girl is SOOO FUNNY!!! Anyway, it was nice to see the old Brad....the one from book 1 of the Kennedy Boys series (Finding Kyler)....when he was such a sweetheart. If you haven’t read that book....holy crap! You. Are. Missing. Out. So...if you asked me at 30% if I recommend it...well......BUT NOW IF YOU ASK ME, I’M LIKE HECK YEAH!!! READ THIS BOOK!!!

4.5 Stars Although this title can be read as a standalone, I would highly recommend reading the previous titles particularly The Irish Getaway, that is alluded to several times within this story line. Siobhan Davis has an uncanny ability to create stories that are raw, intense and emotional. Brad and Rachel are a complex, troubled pair of characters with self destructive tendencies, but epitomize both vulnerability and strength, whilst trying to outrun the pain of their past. Their story is unique and dark, full of twists and turns, drama, angst and intrigue that kept me completely captivated. Rachel and Brad have an interesting start to their relationship they were lovers, who became enemies, to then become friends before they realize the depth of their bond and connection. I found their relationship to be intense yet realistic. Their banter ranged from fun, and flirty to downright angst fueled and hurtful. They have a tendency to both bring out the best and worst in each other. At times Brad's character is as much as you can perceive his pain and suffering, it doesn't justify the way in which he treats those closest to him. This is not an easy story to read, Rachel's past is full of pain and suffering, and as details are revealed it's highly emotional and in my case had me in tears. Brad's redemption as a character for me came in the way he grew, developed and matured, throughout the course of this book and I loved how he stepped up when those around him needed him the most. I was completely captivated by this book, and read it in one sitting. I've found each book in the Kennedy Boys to be intriguing, engaging and entertaining and I cannot wait to read the next title in this series.

I was very much looking forward to Brad's story in this series. I wanted to see how things turned out for him after the events in the first three books. If you haven't read the Kyler books, please do before reading Brad's story! Brad had a lot happen to him when he was too young to really have to face those types of situations. He had to grow up fast and become responsible for himself in ways that no high school teenager should. The situations that happened after with Ky, with Faye, they just added to his stress and emotional turmoil. Rachel had her own tragic history and though her situation was far worse in most ways than Brad's, they both were forced into adulthood far before their time. Rachel had to learn to take care of herself in different ways than Brad, but still had to learn early. I think the fact that they had these similarities caused them to be similar in personality too and maybe that's why they rubbed each other the wrong way when they met. The dynamic was very entertaining to read. If you like the Kennedy Boys books, if you enjoy New Adult Romance, if you like an enemies to lovers type story, you are going to love Saving Brad. I would again encourage reading the Kyler books first and I would even suggest reading Kalvin's book too, just because I think the series will flow more smoothly for you if you do. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Oooh gurl. This series. So many hot guys. Fierce women. All the drama. This story hit me in all the feels, and I loved every minute of it. We were introduced to Rachel in some of the earlier books in the series. She had a chip on her shoulder, and her life seemed to revolve around drinking too much and hooking up with guys. Brad has been with us since the beginning and had spiraled as the series progressed. I was so ready for these two to take each other on. Oh Rachel. I feel for the girl. Her story breaks my heart, but I love how she works through it in this book. Also how she makes it her mission to knock Brad down a peg or five every time she is around him. Things get so ugly, but I lived for it. The big bad in this book has to be one of the most despicable characters ever. I wanted to reach through the book and strangle this person with my bare hands. I had rage. I love this series so much and am looking forward to the next book! ***I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary ARC of this book.***

Saving Brad is the fifth book in the Kennedy Boys series, and the second book to work as a standalone novel. As with the prior book, Loving Kalvin, I do believe it works best if you read the Kyler books prior to reading this one. In fact, I’m of the belief each and every book in this series needs to be read for the best experience. Whilst each relationship arc is wonderful alone, there are snippets seen throughout all the books. We get ideas of what is to come for the relationships in future books, we get to see how relationships from the prior books have developed, and these things work to make the standalone books all the stronger. That being said, the Kyler books will not be for everyone. I completely understand why some people will enter on one of the standalone novels. However, for those to be following the series, this book will work to make a lot of fans happy. As my starting line stated – I’m now a Brad fan. Brad is one of the favourite characters in the series, and I believe the high demand for his story worked towards it being published early into the series, yet I was never a fan. It’s probably one of the most unpopular opinions surround Siobhan Davis, and yet I could never bring myself to like him all that much. His story intrigued me, I cannot deny that, but I never really liked him. As you can see, things changed in this one. I went in tentative about it being Brad’s story, yet the snapshot we were given at the end of Loving Kalvin had me eager. It was a complex mix of emotions. So much excitement, yet it was somewhat reserved compared to my excitement for the other books. The more negative emotions, however, were quickly pushed away. Siobhan Davis pulled her usual trick – she hooked me early, and I found myself unable to put the book down. The characters, the events, the drama – the entire story – managed to dig deep into my very being and I could not put the book down. Loving Kalvin was an emotional read on a number of levels, yet it pales in comparison to Saving Brad. They’re both deeply emotional in many ways, yet the situations dealt with in Saving Brad are much heavier. From the moment we were introduced to Racheal I had a few ideas about how her story would play out – things she said, things she had done, had me believing certain secrets would one day come to the forefront. When I found out she was to be the leading lady in Brad’s story, I wasn’t at all surprised when the synopsis pretty much confirmed my belief. Nevertheless, I was waiting on the specifics of the situation. Very quickly, we get to see how Racheal has a dark past and secrets that will rip anyone apart. I worked out the specifics of the situation quite early, but that failed to lessen the impact when the reveal came about – it was dark, it was emotional, and it worked so well in this story. There have been hints of darkness throughout all the books in this series, but I believe this one to deal with the darkest of issues. In other words, it is not a story for the faint of hearts. It will be a trigger for some, and it will leave emotional scars. Whilst Racheal’s story is the darker element, Brad’s story is also highly emotional. As I’ve stated, his story has interested me throughout the series. I’m so glad we finally got to see how everything came together in that regard. It was emotional in completely different ways, working to pull your emotions in so many directions as each element of the story was presented.

Love Siobhan Davis' writing! She knows how to write stories that draw you in, and keep you interested till the very end. Saving Brad is part of the Kennedy Boys series, and I'd recommend reading the previous books, but it isn't absolutely necessary. Brad has been on my bad side for quite awhile in this series because of his manwhore ways, and his lack of maturity, but I still had hope for him going into this book. He did grow on me, but I still don't like his excuses for his behavior. He needed to do a lot of growing up in this book, and it was good to see him realize that his attitude and actions aren't doing him any favors. I wasn't a huge fan of Rachel's either from the previous books, but this book did help me understand her more. Brad and her are cute together; they don't have the Faye and Kyler connection, but they have their moments. These 2 had a long way to go with me, and it's really hard not to root for them with how Siobhan Davis writes their story, so in the end, I liked them both. Rachel is dealing with some heavy stuff in this book, and it's great to see her realize her worth and stick up for herself. I liked the suspense element in the story, and of course, it's super great to see more of Ky and Faye! I'm not too sure about the premise for the next book in this series, but Siobhan Davis is one of my favorite writers, so I'll definitely check it out!

I’m fascinated with this series. Every book is hooking from start to finish, each couple’s story is a wonderful blend of angst and drama, sexiness and heart. I’ve devoured every book and I can’t wait for more, and just when I think the previous couple was my favorite, along comes Siobhan and delivers this darker, more vulnerable story with an unexpected yet perfect for each other couple. Theirs is a love story is full of the torment Brad has for loving his best friend’s girlfriend and abounding fear from Rachel’s past and the reluctant attraction between them. We met Brad McConaughey from the beginning. The guy with more family baggage than any teen should ever have. The guy who broke his best friend’s trust. The same guy who helped out said best friend by pretending to be the real boyfriend but falling in love with the wrong girl in the process and then trying to erase the girl from his heart with meaningless hookups. Until Rachel moves into town and turns his world upside-down. Rachel wanted to escape the demons from her past. She needed a fresh start, control her life, start over. It’s hard to do though when she’s constantly in contact with the irritatingly handsome man whore who can’t get over her best friend. And to make matters worse, Brad makes her long ago blocked off heart feel again with the undeniable desire that burns between them. Brad and Rachel are both trying to work through their issues, so when something sparks between them it catches them off guard and both struggle to process it. Will he ever get over his best friend’s girl? Can she ever let go of her past and will her past let go of her? Wasn’t their frenetic coupling supposed to be a one time thing? Making matters worse, there are outside forces conspiring against them. These two hesitant lovers fall slowly for each other in a deliciously drama filled story that kept me up all night. I loved the incredible chemistry, past characters helping out, shocking twists I never saw coming, I just couldn’t put it down. Saving Brad in a wonderful addition to the Kennedy Boys series and I can’t wait for more. Saving Brad is book #5 in the Kennedy Boys series by Siobhan Davis. This is a standalone new adult romance, perfect for The Kennedy Brothers fans. Told from both points of view, with a happy ending.

This book follows Brad and Rachel and I loved every second of it. I wasn't sure how I would like it due to the behavior of the main characters in previous books, but this one was just as amazing as all the others. I love how much Faye and Ky you get to experience in this book as well! The book is set in dual point of views, so you are able to experience both sides as you go along. I loved that about the book. This book was written in typical Siobhan style of having no fingernails by the last page because you bit them all off in suspense! I wasn't able to put the book down once I started and found myself walking around my house with the book to my face. I can't tell you much about the story of this book due to spoilers of not only this book but previous books as well, but I can tell you it is worth every minute you put into reading it. You will experience fear, love, anger, sadness, pretty much an overall emotional rollercoaster from beginning to finishing. The suspense in this book is off the charts in more ways than one! Get ready for a night with no sleep and be able to end this book with a smile on your face!

There are not enough praises for The Kennedy Boys saga by Siobhan Davis. I feel like every book that is published in this series gets better and better, with that, it will be a sad day when this series ends. Saving Brad was absolutely 100% mesmerizing! I couldn’t get enough of this raw, passionate enemies to lovers romance. The push and pull magnitude between Brad and Rachel was superb and of course, I wanted more. We have seen Brad grow and come to life in Kyler and Faye’s trilogy. Now, it’s his time to shine and finally find his happiness. I will admit, he was a whole different Brad, one that I didn’t care for with the different persona that he began with. But with every flip of the page, the sweet Brad came back to life. The arrogant, douche-canoe falls to the waste and the caring, passionate man is before us. As well, in the tail end of the Kyler trilogy, we see Faye’s best friend, Rachel’s feisty/ spirited personality come to shine and with Brad, it’s shines ever so bright, but we finally see why and who she really is behind closed doors. With Saving Brad you are unbelievably hooked from the beginning and throughout it’s an emotional turmoil of twists. Not just for Brad and moving on from his feeling of Faye, but for Rachel and her past. Within this fifth book, these two characters lay it all out to bare. Sometimes I thought it would have been better if they had a knock out drag out fight… but hey, it worked out in the end. “I’m still in love with my best friend’s girl. His one true love. The girl who will always be by his side.” “There is only so much a guy can take before he cracks.” This was a darker story than the other books so far. Elements that might trigger negative reactions for some readers be warned, but overall, Siobhan is a captivating, thrilling, well written story teller and I simply can’t get enough.
