Blog Tour- 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.

Okay, first of all, can we just appreciate the gorgeousness that is this cover of Salvaged by Jay Crownover. It is beautiful and it is perfect for the book. Salvaged is the fourth and the final book in the Saints of Denver series. I have to admit that Poppy and Wheeler's book was the one I was most excited for. I was waiting and waiting for them to get the happy ending they deserved and that finally happens in Salvaged. 

Let's start off with Hudson Wheeler, our hero. Wheeler is a nice guy. He isn't your typical bad boy with a chip on his shoulders. He has worked hard to get where he is today with his garage and car restoration business. All Wheeler has wanted is his life is to be loved by someone unconditionally and whole heartedly. But what he got was a cheating ex girlfriend who is now pregnant with his baby. I liked Wheeler. He was genuinely a good soul and though he knows his life is complicated, he wants to be with Poppy.

Poppy on the other hand has been abused by the men who were supposed to love her. Though she has recovered to a great extent now she still finds it hard to trust men. I really liked Poppy. She was a strong woman and even though she couldn't see it herself Wheeler could. But Poppy knows instinctively that she is safe with Wheeler and slowly but surely she begins trusting him.

I really enjoyed both Poppy and Wheeler as protagonists. They were both people who had faced so many hardships in life. At the core, they needed someone to treasure them for who they were. I loved Wheeler's patience with Poppy. Poppy may look timid but she definitely stood up when needed. The book is paced a bit slowly with Poppy and Wheeler being friends first then lovers. But it was the perfect progression for them.

I also loved how we got to see some of the previous couples from both the Marked Men series and the Saints of Denver series. I thought Poppy and Wheeler would be my favourite couple but now that I think of it, it's a toss up between Avett and Quaid and Dixie and Church. Jay Crownover's writing is amazing as usual and I can't wait to read more from her. Salvaged was a good read.

“Poppy.” I whispered her name and she tilted her head back and blinked up at me.
“Wheeler.” I was astounded that there was a hint of amusement in her voice. How she could find anything to laugh about after what she just told me was unfathomable. Her father had handed her off to a monster like it was nothing. She made her way out of hell with one of the purest hearts I had ever seen.
“I really want to give you a hug, probably more for me than for you, but I told you not to let anyone touch you without permission.” I knew I sounded a little desperate but I didn’t care. “So, can you put me out of my misery and give me permission to hold you, just for a second, please?”
Her eyes widened and then her obscenely long lashes dropped as she nodded timidly. “Okay, since you asked so nicely.” The humor was now thick around every word and she was laughing for real as I carefully wrapped my arms around her.
I sighed into the top of her head as I pulled her to my chest. Her hair smelled like flowers and felt like silk as I rested my cheek against the soft strands. WE stood like that for a long time, me with my arms curled around her as she stood stock-still. I could feel her heart beat and I wanted to think it was racing like it was because she was affected by my touch rather than because she was terrified of being so close to a man she didn’t know all that well.
I told myself not to breathe, not to move a single muscle, as her hands slowly lifted and gently touched my sides above the tops of my jeans. It felt like her palms were burning their imprint into my skin as they slowly, achingly started to inch their way around my back so that she was lightly holding me back. I heard her make a sound that may have been one of pleasure, but just in case it was one of fear, I leaned away from her so I could see her face.
Her gaze was centered on the tattooed candle that was burning bright and surrounded by light and smoke right on the center of my throat. She watched the movement as I swallowed hard and her gaze drifted up to mine.
“No one ever has ever asked me for permission for anything before. No one has ever cared what I wanted before.” The murmur of her words brushed across the base of my throat and my cock went instantly hard. I knew she felt it because her eyes popped wide and her breath hitched as she looked up at me and ordered quietly, “Ask me what I want right now, Wheeler.”
