New Review: Outnumbered by Shay Savage (5 ++ Stars)




I’m not exactly the social type.  After spending most of my formative years in prison, I prefer an isolated existence in the wilderness of Canada’s Northwest Territories, making what little cash I need guiding tourists to the best hunting grounds.  I have no desire for company; I crave solitude instead, especially during the subarctic winter months, but what am I supposed to do when I come across a woman in distress? I can’t just leave her to die in the cold, and a storm is on the way.So now we are confined to my secluded cabin, and I quickly realize there’s something not quite right about Seri—or is her name Netti?  She switches moods faster than a snowshoe hare changes direction. In fact, I’m starting to think there’s more than one person behind the mystifying woman’s intense, green eyes.Physically, only two of us are trapped inside the rustic cabin, but I still feel outnumbered.

5 ++ STARS

The only thing to say about Outnumbered by Shay Savage is buckle up, you are in for quite a ride! I knew from reading the synopsis it would be a different romance, and I was right! Shay Savage had me under her spell from the beginning. My mind is still reeling somewhat!

Bishop isn’t the social type. He has found some peace living in solitude in Canada’s Northwest Territories. He lives off the land, and he is fine with that, especially after spending many years in prison. He has a few people in town he talks with but never developing any kind of deep relationship. One woman will turn the idea of a relationship on its head. When Bishop returns home after a day of hunting, he finds a woman, Seri, in major distress. Before he can get any answers, she passes out. When she awakens, he will do what he can to help her move on, but as he spends more time with her, she begins breaking down the walls of his heart. Yet, there is something strange going on with her, her moods switch very quickly…almost as if there is another person inhabiting her body. When you discover Seri’s story, your mind will be blown!!!

Speaking of characters…Bishop and Siri are possibly the most diverse and complicated characters I’ve ever met. Bishop is really a good man deep in his soul, but because of his past, he believes he is quite the opposite. His solitary existence is because he feels as if he needs to protects other. He thinks he is a danger to anyone around him. However, Seri, gives him some peace, and he finds himself slowly trusting her and loving her. She will definitely test how deep his love runs for her.

Now to Seri…there are so many sides to her. She, like Bishop, has not had the best life. She has experienced pain in her past which directly influenced the adult she would become. My heart went out to her, and I, like Bishop, found myself falling in love with her. If two people deserve happiness and peace, it’s definitely Bishop and Seri!

I know when I pick up a Shay Savage book to read, I don’t judge it by the synopsis. She always has some twists in store for me, and this book is no different. It is her unique way of writing and her characterization that pulls me into each and every word she writes. For instance, I felt like I was right there in the harsh Canadian Northwest Territories with them. I could clearly see each thing in my mind, and she does it in a way that doesn’t bog me down. It just adds even more depth to the book. Her writing also tugs at my emotions, whether it’s happy or sad. She makes me feel what the character is feeling, and that makes me feel a deep connection with the book and the characters. Her endings are always fit who her characters are!
