"Sometimes it takes a nudge to get the knight in shining armor to drop that shield he's using to protect you."

I end every Jay Crownover with tears streaming down my face. Sometimes those tears start early and stay etched in my eyes the whole time reading. Some move in ebbs and flows like the tide. All of my tears hit me like a hurricane: powerful, with a force I never quite see coming. That's what Jay's books are: heart-hitting hurricanes. Salvaged is a heartwarming and heart-wrenchi

This is the book that Jay Crownover has had me craving for what feels like an eternity. Poppy and Wheeler stole the show more than a few times throughout this series and I just knew their story was going to be amazing. And I wasn't wrong!

Both Poppy and Wheeler had been dragged through the worst that life could throw at them and came out barely surviving. Fresh wounds haunted them both and kept them isolated from the rest of the world. But when they start putting their
A blazing hot, irresistible romance jampacked with feels. It’s the kind of book that puts your heart and soul through the emotional wringer and leaves you with the most happy and satisfied feeling at the end.

I fell in love with Jay Crownover’s writing from the moment I picked up Rule and was unable to put it down. It was sizzling hot, with exceptionally well layered characters that I would no soon forget and an addicting plot written with edginess, almost painfully gritty about two peop

I’m starting this review off by letting readers know that this is my first book I’ve read in the Saints of Denver series. Salvaged is book 4 and even though these characters had backstories in the previous books I had no problem following along with their current love story.

Wheeler has been dealt a crap hand. His fiancee has dumped him and she’s carrying his child. To find out he’ll be a dad and not be together with the mom isn’t how he saw his future. He was ready to be the family guy into a

When I pick up a book by Jay Crownover, I know a few things. Her men are hard and gritty. Her girls are women with a sense of self and know what they want. I know her books are filled with an abrasive kind of love. The kind that leaves scars on me, the reader, with a lingering fascination into a darker kind of world where love will remain even if it comes with a few scuff marks.

Salvaged is such a departure from all the books preceding it. It took me by surprise. When an author goes over a percei

I was really really dying for this book since Rowdy. Poppy is broken girl life as,just been pure mean to her. She as had to deal with every man in her life hurt her really bad the only guy that was ever nice to her was Rowdy.

It's official—Jay Crownover just saved the sweetest, most heart melting and BEST book in this series for last. This author's books just never fail to shake me up inside. Ever since Rowdy's book, I've always yearned to get Hudson Wheeler and Poppy Cruz's story—especially Poppy. If you've read Rowdy and got that glimpse of a hell—complete understatement—this woman went through, you'd most likely feel the same. Probably out of all the Marked Men and Saints of Denver, THIS woman deserved to get her ...more

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.

Jay Crownover brings the feels with Salvaged and I mean THE FEELS. Poppy and Wheeler’s histories are far from roses and rainbows, but with Jay’s deft writing, all of the injustices of the past are skillfully explored. She takes you on a journey of two lost souls who need salvation more than anything in the world that will make you feel for and root for these characters until the very end.

If there were ever two people (albeit fictional) who deserve a chance at happiness and a happily ever after i

This book didn't quite live up to its potential or my expectations.

Things I really liked:
Hudson Wheeler, he was a man of almost unreal caring proportions. I could help but be won over by him, I loved his patience with Poppy. Poppy was another win, she was like a rose bud opening up and eventually flowering. I liked where the story was in the first half of the book.

Things I struggled with:
The dialogue from Wheeler after time became a little cheesy and disingenuous in my opinion, if it was toned d

Love these two and their story is amazing. So sexy and romantic and sweet. True to a Crownover story, the female is strong but Poppy is unique in her fierceness. She is quiet and unassuming (her backstory breaks my heart and hits home for me and so many women), that she doesn't even realize how strong she is. And also like any Crownover novel, the women are loyal and love with all that they have-- some might say to a fault. This is what I love about the women in these stories, they have so much ...more

Salvaged was my most anticipated book of 2017. I have been wanting Poppy's book since we met her back in the Marked Men series. She was so broken I cried for her. I couldn't imagine who Crownover would bring into her life in order to heal her, but Wheeler is the man for the job! Salvaged is the salvation of two people who have been hurt; two souls who need and deserve each other! This book was everything I anticipated and more.

Hudson Wheeler and Poppy Cruz are both deserving of some happiness after the things they have been through. We have seen them in other books: Poppy is Salem's sister and Wheeler is best friends with both Dixie and Zeb. Wheeler did not have a stable childhood, and he just cancelled his wedding with this longtime fiancee' because she cheated on him. But he is now dealing with the fact that she is having his baby. Poppy's home life was even more challenging and her relationships with men nearly des ...more

I honestly don’t know where to start when it comes to this review. I mean, how does one even go about reviewing a book they’ve been waiting two years for?! How does one go about reviewing the final book in one of their favorite series ever?! How does one go about discussing all their feelings for a book that left them emotionally dead?!

I was really happy when Jay finally gave us a book about Poppy and Wheeler. I was really hoping that they could have their happily ever after.

From the moment Poppy was introduced in the Marked Men series, you just want to hold her close and protect her at all cost. Most books that followed in this world (Marked Men, Saints of Denver), we always catch a glimpse of where Poppy is at but you never get the whole picture. In this book, you fin

3.5-3.75 stars. I liked this book but I didn't love it. I was slightly disappointed because I really loved the previous book, Riveted, and was looking forward to Poppy and Wheeler's story. I was looking forward to Poppy getting the HEA she deserved, but too many things bothered me to totally love it. I had to reread this book immediately after I finished so that I could clarify my feelings.

This is Poppy and Wheeler's story. Poppy has had a hard time. She recently moved to Denver after being kid
Not for me right now. Heroine's backstory was just too angsty with good reason, and the H is all over the place. One minute he's sleeping his way through Denver to get over his idiot ex, and the next he wants to be everything to the h and polish her nice and shiny like one of his cars or something like that.

This book had me addicted from the Introduction. Warning this book does go over the abuse that Poppy went through. This author uses words so wisely and descriptive. I've been waiting for this story where Poppy and Wheeler get there happy ending. Wow close

And so the Saints of Denver series comes to an end - sad panda.

But this book. This book is everything about the the SoD.

If you have read the earlier Saints books or the Marked Men, you will have met Poppy before - she is Rowdy's girl Salem's sister, and she has has a sh!tty time.

Since I first read her, I wanted - no, I needed more. And what Ms Crownover has given us was so much more.

Buyer beware - do not go into this story without tissues handy. Neither Poppy nor
I had been waiting for this book since the day Hudson Wheeler graced the pages of these books. I just knew that I was gonna fall for him. Not since Rowdy have I swooned so hard for a Crownover boy.

Hudson Wheeler hasn't had it easy pretty much his entire life. Abandoned by his mom when he was four, shuffled through the system, finding a girl he loves only to watch that fall apart in the worst way...he really never catches a break. The fact that he's about to be a father is just added stress. And

A solid finale for this series. It was a bittersweet read, because although I was excited to see Poppy heal, I was sad to be leaving the Marked world. Crownover definitely gave us fans some treats, by including almost every important player of the Marked family and giving us updates on them. I love how this family grew over the years, and will miss them very much.

I was onboard since this connection began. Both Wheeler and Poppy have so much baggage to deal with, and it was lovely that they had

Uhmmm wow.

This book was just so pure and just so phenomenal. I loved everything about it from the beginning until this couple's HEA. I honestly loved Poppy. She was someone who went through things that would kill anyone else but instead she was slowly suffering but still alive and in fact fighting for her own slice of happiness. And then there's the wonderfully wonderful Wheeler who had my heart. He was just what Poppy needed and then some. His love was something I felt through the pages

Salvaged was like a hurricane of emotions! I laughed, I cried, my heart fluttered and it broke...

Salvaged was such a beautiful story, because no characters I've gotten to know in past deserved happiness more than Poppy and Wheeler. They had both been through hell, with no one to help them, and feeling both left behind and unloved. Seeing them open up and receive acceptance and love made me so happy. Even it there was still hearta

I loved this. Hudson could not be more perfect for Poppy. They were both lost but they both had so much inside them that wanted to love and be loved and they both needed someone who would protect their hearts. After events that could have broken them they found each other and they were absolutely what the other needed more than anything.

But the standout here for me was Hudson Wheeler. He couldn't have been more caring, protective, and open and nobody else could have been exactly what Poppy want
