WARNING This author is deceiving! I will not pay my money for an author that betrays her readers!

WARNING: Hero is a big cheater, sex scenes with multiple women!


Author so carelessly killed the heroine Lia aka send her away like disposed garbage? and replaced her with a hooker?

I ask myself a question WHY then Lia was introduced as a main heroine in the first place? Its not only that this author robs the reader from "HEA" that she gave us for "a short period of time" leading the reader to believe

I am utterly stupefied right now. I loved the entire Evan Arden series up until this point. I really enjoyed Isolated. I didn't blame Lia one bit for leaving...but I naively assumed Evan would go after her. He lets her go with a shrug and a 'she's better off without me' explanation. I just feel so cheated.

VERY DISAPPOINTED!

This review is from: Irrevocable (Evan Arden Book 5) (Kindle Edition)
After everything they went through, especially to Lia for sticking by his side and on top of everything, saving his life! I'm so disappointed by the turn this story had taken. HE SHOULD HAVE PUT HIMSELF DOWN AS HE REPEATED SO MANY TIMES IF LIA EVER LEAVE HIM OR IF SOMETHING HAPPEND TO HER.

LIA SEARCHED FOR HIM FOR MONTHS, NEVER LEFT HIS SIDE THROUGHOUT THE MESS, AND HE COULDN'T EVEN DO THE SAME AND TRIED TO GO

Okay, so I am a fan of the Evan Arden Series and I admit that after reading Isolated I was scared to jump into Irrevocable. For those that have not yet read single book in this series, stop reading reviews of the final books! You’re ruining all the fun and suspense.

I will not be reading. Yesterday after sorting through all the " street team five star reviews " I found one honest one with spoilers. Bottom line is the HEA with Lia is destroyed. Why anyone would want to read it and five star that is beyond me. I have no idea why a romance author would do that. Because it results in people NOT buying her book. Sad. I truly am.

I have seriously ate up followed along the Evan Arden Series from it's conception a couple years ago. Shay Savage first hooked me with Surviving Raine and her imperfect, brooding anti-hero Bastian Stark. From there, I met the elusive Evan Arden. A very psychologically flawed mafia hitman, he's no Cassanova. He's dark, and he will take a life in the bat of an eye without an iota of remorse. The only time I'd really seen this m

Bitterly disappointed doesn't even begin to describe how I feel. I think Shay Savage and I are going to have some trust issues going forward. I didn't think I would ever be in the position to rate one of her books lower than a 4-5 star, but, unbelievably for me, that day has come.

I don't guess I was owed a HEA (this ending just doesn't look like that to me), but I definitely expected...something different. I get that this is Evan's story, but part of who Evan is as a character (to me

Evan Arden is now back in Chicago and working for Rinaldo the only man that Evan thinks is family and the only man to call him son.

This time there is a traitor amongst the firm and Evan needs to find out quickly to protect the ones he loves.

Still having the nightmares, he can go days without sleeping and that is going to cause him problems as he needs to keep a clear head.

I had totally forgotten how broken and damaged Evan Arden was, but this book was a huge reminder of that! Poor Evan! Even though he was a dangerous and sometimes (usually) violent person, I couldn't help but feel for him and my heart broke. He still suffers from nightmares and sleeping is always an issue for him. And then there's Ralph....you may remember this small boy from Evan's time overseas in the military. Well, he still haunts him and it was so believable.

Wow, I'm amazed at how quickly an author can go from being one of my top 5, to one I don't know I'd ever read again. The Evan Arden series and the Surviving Raine series were two of my ultimate favorites. When will authors learn that HEAs are a deal-breaker for us romance readers? Two thumbs down, Shay.

I never thought I'd actually do this (and especially to a book in a series that I enjoyed very much), but I have to. I really have to do this.

So... 1.5 stars for the final Evan Arden book.



Actually, scratch that. I am angry at how this book turned out to be.

After reading the previous novella (it was too short to be called an actual novel), I had hoped for a legit continuation of the story that was developed in the previous books, but what I actually got felt sort of like a reboot. To my eyes, it

The last installment of the Evan Arden saga is everything I didn't even know I wanted. This story is precise and tight, there are no fillers, no wasted time everything happens exactly when it should.

I have to say that Evan is one of those characters that works his way into your heart and stays with you. I love Evan, and I feel like I know him intimately, he is like a friend to me now, that is how good the writing is.

The supporting characters are also fully fleshed out and real. Alina is my fa

It's been a little over a year since I’ve been in the crazy world that is Evan Arden. I was happy with how Otherwise Unharmed had finished and always thought that was the end of Evan and the series. Well Shay surprised me when I found out there was going to be another book and for sure the last one. So I hurried up and read Isolated, which I didn’t realize was even out. I do recommend reading Isolated before reading Irrevocable. It will fill in a few details that are needed between books Otherwi ...more

Evan Arden

I don’t really know what to say.

I’m speechless.

I’m floored. Incensed. Relieved. Overwhelmed.


I finished the series late last night and spent the rest of my sleep with jumbled up dreams of the book. I have very mixed feelings about Evan Arden and there is no way I can talk about this book to just anyone. Argh! Everything I want to say would only be understood by someone who read it because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone.

This is the kind of series you really need to have a buddy to

For Shay Savage fans looking for the quality of story telling, writing and character intrigue as found in Otherwise Occupied, look elsewhere. Unfortunately I have to stick by reviews for the first three books in the Evan Arden Series that cite this series as a failure with the anomaly of the second installation peaking with quality.

My perspective is that Savage tried to do too much with Irrevocable - appease fans that love Evan, appease fans that want t

Irrevocable is the last book in the Evan Arden Series. I've read them all: Otherwise Alone, Otherwise Occupied, Uncockblockable (Optional), Otherwise Unharmed, Isolated, & now Irrevocable. Ideally, you should read Surviving Raine and Bastian's Storm between Otherwise Unharmed and Isolated. Following Evan through all these it is bittersweet to finish his last book.

Evan suffers from extreme PTSD since his time in the Marines as a prisoner of war. Irrevocable starts out with Evan being very muc

The ending of the Evan Arden series is here. *Tears* Evan Arden has been one of my favorite male characters over the last year. He's raw, unforgiving, resilient, impassioned, and loyal. He's a bad-assed motherfucker who will get the job done and pretty much has nine lives. We have seen Evan kill, fall in love, fight for his "family", and fall down. But in Irrevocable we finally see him heal.

Evan is poised to take over the Moretti family (mob family) even if he likes it or not. The is a lot goin

If I said I wasn't a little bit worried about the direction the author was taking this story after finishing Isolated then I'd be lying. It's just that I have never read a series where one of the main characters gets the boot. Like, for real. Gone. Will the series still flourish without that character? The answer is yes because this is Evan's story. These books center around him, his demons, his constant struggle with PTSD, his life.
