Review: Alarm By: Shay Savage

Title: Alarm
by: Shay Savage
Publication Date: December 8, 2014
Cover Designer: Mayhem Cover Creations


Chloe’s life is safe and comfortable. Meeting a tall, dark stranger covered in tattoos is not in her plans. Bad boys just aren’t her type, even if they gorgeous and built like a brick wall. The alarms in her head warn that Aiden Hunter is definitely on the list of men her mother told her to avoid, but she doesn’t listen.
Still, she finds herself drawn to Aiden and the excitement she is missing in her own life. He fills her days with thrills and danger, and her nights with passion she’s never experienced before. Even though she knows he’s hiding something from her, Chloe pushes away her concerns and dives into this new way of living. Near the beach in Miami, Aiden teaches her to live life to the fullest as Chloe battles the internal warning bells that tell her to be wary. By the time she realizes her fears may be justified, it’s too late. Aiden’s past is catching up to him, but is he the hunter or the hunted?

I received an ARC for an Honest Review

Where to start with Alarm.... WOAH!! This is the first book that Shay has written in female POV and can I just say that Shay has knocked it out of the park! Shay has a way with her characters. It's almost as if they are real life people in the real world and not a work of fiction. One thing that isn't fiction in this book, The Bar Chloe frequents. Thirsty’s Oasis. In fact, I've been to Thirsty's myself and it is a really nice establishment. Now on with my thoughts of Alarm.

Chloe- Your average everyday working girl with a pretty much set routine. Work, home, work, home. Unless it's a Saturday, you will then find her at the local grocery store. She reminds me a lot of myself in a sense because I am a person that lives by simplest of means.

Aiden- Mysterious nice, warm brick wall that Chloe cannot seem to resist.

I loved Alarm! There were times that I wanted to scream and yell at both Chloe and Aiden like what the heck! Get with the program. But other times I just said and cried for the anguish Aiden has went through. My emotions while reading this book were all over the place. I laughed, I got scared, I shouted, I cried. But never once was it enough for me to put Alarm down and walk away. The mood swings these characters go through are crazy at times but mellow at others. My favorite part of Alarm. BAKON. If you want to know what I'm referencing to you'll just have to read Alarm to find out.

Savage- You've done it again. It’s almost as if you write these books with enough mood swings to drive us all to drink but we love it so we keep coming back for more. I'm looking forward to your future work. Aiden and Chloe's story will stick with me for quite some time.
