Amie's Review of Salvaged by Jay Crownover


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover continues her delightfully sexy Saints of Denver series with the next thrilling standalone, SALVAGED! Order your copy today!


Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.

Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.
The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.

I loved this book !! Having read this series I was hoping Poppy would get an HEA of some sort - what she had gone through was horrific and she really deserved to find some happiness. Wheeler also struggled with some issues , not as bad as Poppy but still enough that it left him hopeless and alone. They knew of each other's situations due to mutual friends/family and they had run ins due to where they lived and Wheeler was the one to sell Poppy her car. Intrigued by each other and wanting to help they both find ways to work themselves into each others lives. It is sweet and endearing. I loved their honesty and ease of things because it helped them to know how right they were for each other. Wheeler helped Poppy become comfortable with her surroundings and she helped him open his heart again not just to the puppy but to her as well. There was still some struggles with Poppy's family and Wheeler's ex BUT those were real life things a lot of couples have to deal with so it had an easy flow and not too much drama. I think  Poppy's father was the biggest shock to me , I knew he was a piece of work but didn't really expect his presence to be a factor. I always enjoy catching up with the couples from previous books and other series and of course JC knows how to write the heat - WOW I needed a fan for some of those scenes !!
