    "I know you would," he said. "But that's not me. You know that. I'm on my train, you're on yours. And I'm really happy that I get to rattle along and look out the window see you. But we're on different tracks. We can't change that." I wanted to love this one. It starts out with Nikk...

    Exactly what I needed right now. A Jessica Jones type of character kicking the crap out of men who deserve it, and a twisty turny corporate espionage tale winding through it all. Nothing really new, but it?s a fun ride. Already waiting for #2. ...

    I got suckered in because the hero works at a bookstore. I read to chapter 8 and then stopped. Thrillers aren't really my thing. Also, I'm tired of the description of women that men seem to think we have when looking at a mirror. Sorry Lelchuck, we don't think "I'm not ski...

    Move over Jack Reacher, Nikki Griffin is on the job. Like Reacher, Nikki doesn?t go looking for trouble. She owns a bookstore and loves to help customers find just the right book and loves to banter about book trivia with the groups that meet at her store. However, she has a dark pas...

    We don't talk about it. But things we don't talk about still happen. I loved this. Great cast of colorful characters, intricate plot with sub-plots that held my attention, great story. Feminist af. In a way it reminded me a little bit of the Mindf*ck Series - kickass female ch...

    Yay! A really great new female character that totally kicks butt! I am hoping Nikki Griffin has the staying power to show up in many more novels. She is a great character with a very dark past who is living her best life but also dealing with that dark past in very dark ways. Condonabl...

    Save Me from Dangerous Men is S.A. Lelchuck's debut novel, and while I had a couple of quibbles with it, for the most part we got along very well. Nikki Griffin, our heroine, is cool, edgy, and in the tradition of all the best detectives, deeply, deeply troubled. She's got a penchan...

    I was so set to love Nikki and her double life... bookseller by day, badass PI and righter of wrongs by night, but this book was just OK for me. Sometimes it's so obvious (and not in a good way) when a male author tries to write a female character... this was definitely one of those ti...

    Intriguing female detective and an interesting, relatively credible backstory. Yet, this modern detective thriller suspense novel, with its early promise, ultimately faces the dreadful predicament of predictability as well as what seemed to me a few too many implausible jumps and gaps ...

    Nicki Griffith has a lot going for her in Lelchuk' s introduction to the character. She owns a bookstore. She enjoys literary banter. She helps women who need help. She is a bad ass. A strong, vigilante type female investigator when she's not managing her bookstore, you can't help but ...

    Thank you NetGalley and Flatiron Books for this arc. Please buckle your seat belts and make sure your tray tables are in their upright position... "Cause this is one wild ride! Other reviewers have compared Nikki Griffin to Jack Reacher and/or Lisbeth Salander. She is also described...

    Opening chapter has Nikki being a pool shark and I was loving EVERY SINGLE BIT OF IT. As a woman who has competed in pool and has gone through that gambit of men being dicks until they realize you can play... well, let's just say that this scene was very realistic and I loved seeing it...

    Save Me from Dangerous Men was an outstanding read with an excellent main character and an engrossing mystery. Nikki Griffin doesn?t usually take normal PI jobs, but instead focuses on tracking dangerous men who hurt the women they love and teaching them what it?s like to be hur...

    So- I love the title. And the concept- used bookseller also goes after violent men that hurt women. I did finish. I put it down several times because of some things I did not like. Nikki was perfect 10 motorcycle riding gin drinking, knows every mystery writer & old movies. Whi...

    I only made it two pages before checking to confirm my suspicions that the author is a man. For starters, "stone washed hip hugger jeans". That was the first thing that distracted me. Stone washing is a very common technique and doesn't need to be clarified to that level. Second, no...

    Nikki Griffin is one tough chick. A Berkeley grad and a local book store owner...she is not what you?d expect. She moonlights as a do-good vigilante, and a private investigator just outside San Francisco, California. Her work definitely speaks for itself...and her next job is unlike ...

    A vigilante heroine who loves books? Heck yeah. This was as suspenseful as it was thrilling, with a badass heroine who did what needed to be done to get the bad guys. If you love thrillers but have yet to read this book, then you?re in for a great time. ...

    Well Nikki might be my favorite new badass! Quite the well rounded woman between her love for books, people, her brother and struggling women! This is going to be an excellent series that will have women cheering Nikki on! ...

    I am not sure if I love the title of SA Lelchuk's all action debut thriller, but I found it a pulse pounding, tense and thrilling read. For a start, the central character of Nikki Griffin is so compelling with her heartbreaking personal history. It is this background that has made her ...

    This was so so very good! I seriously could NOT put this one down. And I fell in love with Nikki Griffin from page one. I've never read many Thrillers because I always worried there wouldn't be any likable characters and I need likable characters in books. S. A. Lelchuk showed me that ...

    This book is, more or less, an illogical mess. The character is like some sort of amazingly talented spy/Sherlock/ninja who never gets caught or hurt somehow. There are like two weird, nonsensical plots throughout the entire book and then a dumb romantic one that is utterly unnecessary...

    Wildest ride ever! Female PI Nikki Griffin is a hardboiled, kick-ass, take-no-prisoners woman who has been compared to Jack Reacher and Lisbeth Salander. From the first page, we see her lure in an unsuspecting abuser whom she then teaches a valuable lesson after putting him in the emer...

    Rating 3.54 out of 5 stars Honestly I have conflicting feeling on this book. It had a lot of action which I loved and a strong female main character who protected those who needed protecting. It was a nice change of pace in that sense, however the story itself was slow paced and had ...

    I listened to the audio for this book and I have to say, the narrator was fantastic. Nikki Griffin is a really fun kind of mystery/thriller heroine: she's got a chip on her shoulder, she's got violent tendencies, she's got a murky past, she lives a double life. We get to see her str...

    1.5 stars. Great idea, but the writing is weak and ultimately ? this is a man writing a woman, and you can tell. Parts are silly and ridiculous, and the writing can?t save it. This is literally how the main character thinks, starting on p1: ?The bartender was a big, paunchy guy...

    What a cool book! I received an advance reading copy from the publisher. The back cover likens the protagonist to Jessica Jones and Lisbeth Salander, and it's a fair comparison. What I loved, though, is that this book was not quite as dark as either of those stories. It's got some heav...
