Publisher's Summary

The New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of the Marked Men books continues her delightfully sexy Saints of Denver series.

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 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 by 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.

    "Just great"

    A great end to a series. Poppy is stringer then she thinks and deserves all the happiness and orgasms she can get . Wheeler where can I find one of him for myself always had a thing for Gingers. he's sweet and great fit for Poppy.

    "Ok but not exceptional IMO"
    Any additional comments?

    <br/>The narration was good but I did not particularly like the book all that much. Here is my review from Amazon.<br/><br/>** CONTAINS SPOILERS **<br/><br/>I have to say that I don't really agree with the 5 stars on Amazon. It is not terrible but it is not 5 star material IMO but others may feel differently. Jay used to use more angst in her books but all the angst from this is from their past before the book started. To me everything is just too overly sweet in this. The H falls for the h immediately. Even the ex who treated him in the past badly (before the book starts) is overly sweet in this book. She gets along with the H and now the h. They become like besties. I mean why not have her be a raging witch that fights them all along to give something interesting to the storyline?<br/><br/>Yes I do like the H and h and they have a sweetness to them but is that really all readers want? Do we really just want this sweet almost instant love that lasts from beginning to end with no real angst - no fighting, no breakups - nothing?<br/><br/>Yes the H is worried the h will go off the deep end if he pushes too hard but she never does and all is pretty much smooth sailing.<br/><br/>I loved a few of Jay Crownover's books (like Rule, Asa, and Nash) but none as of late. They have just been too uninteresting lately IMO. I was somewhat bored through most of this book even though I did like the two main characters. I listen to a few books a week so it takes more than just a sweet story to interest me and this was not it.<br/><br/>I know it is obvious some don't agree, by the 5 stars I see, and that is ok because all are entitled to their opinions. I just think it seems that if a book is sweet and tolerable, it automatically gets a 5 stars. I think books should be exceptional to get 5 stars and IMO, this book had sweet characters but was not exceptional. As I said, that was part of the problem to me, all were sweet from beginning to end, including the ex. Again, they tell you the ex was terrible but that was from the past, before the book started. She is even nice in the book as I said.<br/><br/>For the reasons above, I had to give it 3 stars. I liked the characters but not how the storyline went in the book to the point I would give it 5 stars.

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    "Epic ending"

    What an amazing ending to an epic series. First of all, I have to say that I didn't know I wanted to know more about Wheeler. He never really appealed to me much. Jay Crownover took Wheeler from a secondary character into a leading role. I love him, his dedication and his heart are beautiful and the way he loves Poppy is magical.

    I often get tired of relationship problems in books. It always is the same thing, boy and girl get together, something happens, they break up and then get back together. Jay Crownover stomped all over this pattern and reinvented a romance. It was so refreshing for the drama to be against them and not against each other. I loved that about this book.

    The negative is the narration. I feel Jay Crownover has ALWAYS had awesome narrators but this did not meet her standards. The male narrator, to me, didn't sound like the proper age range or voice for what Wheelers character was. The female narrator, albeit much better than the male, still didn't have that timid and meek quality I would think Poppy's character would have.

    "Salvage is a great story!!!"

    I love reading books by Jay Crownover. This is the last book of the Saints of Denver series and even if it difficult to let such a good series go, I must say that this is the perfect book to end it. Both this characters deserve their HEA.

    if you like stories about woman that learn how to survive and confront their demons, and hard working men that get the best reward of their lives (love), this is the perfect book for you!

    Story
    "Wheeler's voice in two words: Bob's Burgers"

    I really enjoy Jay Crownover's books and believe she knocked this one out of the park. I also think both narrators are very talented in their own right. HOWEVER the male lead spent a majority of this book sounding like Bob Belcher, from Bob's Burgers.
    The reason this bugs me so much is because when the male narrator did any other man's voice in the book, he did a freaking awesome job! Then he'd go back to the main character he was playing and it would take me a few minutes to lose myself in the story and try and forget that Hudson sounded like an animated TV dad.
    Maybe it's just me, but if I had the choice over again I probably would have waited until I had time to sit down and read Salvaged, before getting so hooked on the story that I didn't wanna wait to find out what happened. Like I said might just be a personal issue, but the guy had serious range in other characters and fell SO flat on the most important one.

    "Another winner"

    I can't explain just how much I love Jay Crownover's books. This book is just another example of her stellar writing. I love the characters and I love the story. Marked Men and The Saints of Denver have forever etched a place in my heart.

    "She may have saved the best for last."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Salvaged to be better than the print version?

    I began by reading the print version, and decided to begin listening to it because I kept getting distracted. I got sucked in quicker while listening to the book and I binged pretty much the whole thing. I loved it!


    What other book might you compare Salvaged to and why?

    Compared to the rest of the series, I do believe this might be the best one. I've always been a Rule lover, and no one else has been able to steal his top spot (though Rome gave some solid competition), but I think Wheeler has my heart now, for good. I connected with him the most, and I think it's fantastic that his series ended on the same high note that it began on.


    Any additional comments?

    The Saints of Denver series, a spin-off of the Marked Men series, ends with two marked souls. Wheeler and Poppy's story is sweetly emotional and engaging. Jay Crownover gave them both the story I wanted them to have and one that they definitely deserved. I loved their connection and journey, and I'll miss this world she created that stars vibrantly compelling characters that I'll never forget.

    "5 Salvaged Stars!!"


    Wheeler & Poppy

    I am in awe of this book; I knew it was going to be good. No I knew it was going to be freaking fantastic and I was NOT wrong.

    If you followed the Marked Men Series, Poppy is Salem’s Sister. And Salem is Rowdy’s girl. So right from that series your heart is bleeding for Poppy.

    She has so much in her that she is trapped. It’s trapped inside her and she is desperate to let it out. But she is also so very afraid all the time.

    Wheeler is struggling with responsibility and inadequacy from the break-up of a long time relationship.

    These two souls find each other and it was like they knew they were meant for each other, it was the rest of them that had to catch up.

    The love and support and the growth these characters go through will break your heart and mend it. I can’t even tell you how perfect this story is for them. It has all the ups and all the downs and everything in-between.

    It might just be my all-time favorite of Jay’s books I have read. And that is saying something because Nash and Church have taken up huge chucks of this girl’s heart.

    You won’t find a better man than Wheeler and you won’t find a gentler soul than Poppy and their story is a reflection of everything they have been though and their determination to move forward and have the best possible life, because it is precious and should be cherished.

    I very much enjoyed the female narrator she bring that sound of Poppy I had in my head from reading the book. I liked the male narration, but I sometimes felt like he was just saying the words and not really feeling them. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great addition to the audio versions of this series. I just wanted a little more from him. But I have to say his female voices were pretty freaking great.

    I will re-listen and it’s very much worth the credit.

    *You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
