Offside - Shay Savage

 

Hey 3.5 star rating is not that bad.

 

“ 3.5 star” in my rating means “IT’S GOOD/ I ENJOYED IT”

 

The very reason why I decided to read this book was because I really enjoyed “Kulti” by Mariana Zapata. It’s a book about soccer and I love how the author wrote it.  Sadly, I didn’t love this as much as “Kulti”. Despite that, I still enjoyed this book. So I’m going to breakdown the things that I liked and didn’t like much from this book.

 

I like:

 

It’s a male POV. It’s very seldom for me to encounter a book with a male narrator by a female author. I mean, of course I read some but an entire book with a male narrator from a female author? Not much.

 

  • It’s a sport/soccer story. I haven’t read much about this sort of story.
  • The male character has a soft heart. I mean, he easily forgives his father/s (yeah I’m not going to explain because I don’t want to spoil). He has positive traits in him despite some (bad) circumstances. He’s not really that bad deep inside.
  • Greg Skye (Nicole’s father). I like his personality. I found him to be a “cool dad”.
  • I like how it ends in every chapter with questions and references from famous people/poets/writers.
  • The ending. I think the ending is cute.

I DIDN’T LIKE MUCH:

 

  • His abusive father and almost everything about him and what he did.
  • The opening scene.
  • I’m getting sick of reading rich/bad boy/play boy/man whore character suddenly turning into a one woman guy. Maybe it’s just me but that’s how I feel about this.
  • The flirt group of girls who let guys treats them like sluts because they act like one.
  • A bit too much of drama for my liking.  

 

Well, I enjoyed this one, really, but there’s something about it (maybe the “dramas”) that bothers me. I read positive and great reviews regarding this book and its author, so I would definitely read another book from this author.  

 

If you are into books with sports, romance and drama this book is for you.

 

 #Nice book cover by the way

 

#I really like the quotes though I must admit I don’t know much about Shakespeare…sorry

 

 

#One of the advantages of reading books about sports is that I’m learning a lot about soccer in a fun way

Specimen
Specimen - Shay Savage
At some point in the future, a comet passed by Earth too closely, which devastated the ecosystem. Crops failed. Water became scarce. Companies fought for control. Two sides emerged as leaders. Now there is a war between them for ultimate control. Specimen is about a super soldier, designed by one of the sides, and his handler.

The reader is constantly questioning. What is the truth? Who's good or bad? Is this part real? Everything is told from his POV. His memory has been swiped. He's a science experiment undergoing treatments and simulations. He's on testosterone and drug overload with side effects of fight or fuck always trying to break through. His doctor is his trainer and lover. His whole world revolves around her, which makes everything a complicated struggle between brain, heart, hormone and environment.

This story was an adrenaline ride. I haven't come down yet. If you have been waiting for something different, this is for you. It feels a bit post-apocalyptic and dystopian but it's mostly sci-fi and erotic romance. You'll just have to read it and decide for yourself. ;) I found this pic and consider it a perfect message from the author.
