"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-wrenching hurri

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 t
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 people w

Jay Crownover's foreword said it all. Hudson Wheeler and Poppy Cruz were genuinely good people, Poppy deserved to be wooed and Wheeler deserved to finally find the right woman. Both were at points in their lives when it could only get better. And meeting again was just the beginning.

Both Wheeler and Poppy deserved more. They deserved the HEA that many of their friends already found. And both deserved a break of all the shitty stuff that has happened lately.

And they definitely deserved each other

" Te prometo que si me dejas te dare solo cosas buenas con las que soñar de aqui en adelante Poppy. Una vez me dejes entrar voy a cazar a todos tus demonios. "

Aun no puedo creer que al fin haya tenido la oportunidad de leer esta novela, tengo la sensacion de que espere leerla durante mucho tiempo, quizas por eso apenas me duro un dia y medio.

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 b

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. Poppy hasnt felt anything for a man in a really long time since what she had gone through. The only people she was close to was her sister Salem Rowdy Sawyer and Dixie. Until

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

“Amore senza ombre” è il quarto e ultimo capitolo della serie Saint Of Denver di Jay Crownover, la serie spin-off della Marked Men series. I personaggi che abbiamo conosciuto tra le pagine che la compongono ci tengono compagnia da diverso tempo e solo un avido lettore può comprendere quanto sia penoso dover salutare e dire addio a protagonisti che hanno fatto emozionare, sospirare e anche innamorare con le loro storie.
È triste.

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.

"I'm not interested in visiting your heart. I want to move in, stake my claim, and plant roots so deep nothing will ever be able to move me out."

"The last of my demons were dead, crushed under the weight of my very full and overflowing heart."

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
