No cheating and inspiration for other authors.
Transcendence - Shay Savage

Update 09-01-2017 A famous author whose name I won't mention because her fans are scary ;) borrowed heavily from this SELF-PUBLISHED book. Anyone who loves the words "my mate" repeated endlessly should read this book

Update October 11th. I wish more people knew about this book because I found no cheating and no slut shaming. Books that don't promote violence on women like Transcendence and are still steamy and compelling deserve more love.

ORIGINAL REVIEW

description


Before I write my review of Surviving Raine it's fair that I review one of my 2015 favorites. I re-read Trascendence because I wanted to have a feel of the author's style before I dived into Survaiving Raine. My conclusion? I'm a huge fan Of Mrs. Savage. (Update Oct 10th, Not anymore after I tried her scifi books and read the spoilers for Surviving Raine sequels , but this book is fantastic)

We meet Ehd, a caveman who lives in the Ice-Age. He's also the loneliest man on the planet. He lost his tribe to a fire, all his family. He has struggled to survive these rough times. He doesn't have much of a life. He's SURVIVING. He hadn't seen another human being for a long time and Ehd's starting to think that he'll be alone forever.

A modern-day girl named Elizabeth appears magically. It's never clear how that happens but you can imagine the 20000 years age of cultural differences that separte these soon-to-be-couple. Ehd is determined to mate with her and surely you understand all the sexy implications of that decision.

Or should I say instict? Because Ehd is a very primitive man whose actions are driven by instict and eventually by LOVE.

He'll provide for her, he'll protect her from harm and he'll put a baby on her. A baby! That's cute and sexy at the same time.

description


What I love about this book is that we are all the time on Ehd's mind and his train of thought is amazing. He's naive, but strong, and he falls in love hard for his mate. He's extremely repetitive. My mate, I have to provide for my mate, she is my mate my mate is weird, I want my mate with me, I have to protect my mate . It's really primitive, cute and charming at the same time.

description

I love how this couple falls for each other slowly, how they solve their cultural differences and how, what started as a very instictive desire (I have to put a baby on her) ended up in a love that TRASCENDS THE TIME. Love trascends everything. I think just the title was so full of promise and the book delivered.

The steamy scenes are full of that longing, cuteness and awkwardness of two virgin people who are learning to love. That's the reason I read New Adult and Classic romance. This kind of storyline is always so romantic because it's like inexperience is another burden for a couple to overcome and when they do it correctly is always so romantic. Beh and Ehd journey to survive the harsh times they live in and at the same time discover love is one of the best I've read. It's beautiful.

My only minor complain about the book is that perhaps just a little less sex would have worked better for me, and a I wish there had beem a little bit of Beh's perspective. That would have made a huge difference in an already-awesome-book, but at the end I don't care. I just started to try to put bookmarks on my favorite lines and without meaning it, I ended up re-reading the whole book. FOR THE THIRD TIME. I have a lot of homework and tons of books to read, but couldn't stop. That's how much I love this book and why is one of 2015 favorites.

I have to appreciate how cute this story was and I can't describe it in words properly. I just love how original this is. No billionaires, no tattoed boys, no clones of Anastasia steele or aby abernathy OR bELLA Swan. The two characters feel real and refreshing. You have to suspend disbelief a lot, because some times Ehd is just too perfect and the traveling from one age to the other is not explained, but who cares? The book is an incredibly, fast-paced journey.

If you haven't read this book, what are you waiting for? Even if you don't like fantasy book and prefer a contemporary setting perhaps you will enjoy Shay Savage's contemporary romances. I know I did.

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.
