While the story was incredibly well-crafted, as all Savage's work is, with this book Savage committed what I consider to be an unforgivable writing sin - she created an ending that might have satisfied her, but was profoundly unsatisfying for the reader. From the characterizations of the hero and heroine, the world-building, fast-paced plot and scorching love scenes, everything else about this book was as exceptional as I expect from Savage.
I felt deeply betrayed by the ending of this story. If you always need an HEA ending, this isn't the book for you. I actually can live with, and even love, a book that doesn't give the characters their HEA, if it makes sense within the story. This ending did not. Throughout the book, Savage makes you believe Galen and Riley will get their HEA ... and then she rips it away from them. The ending was so painfully not right for this book and these characters that I just couldn't believe that's where it was all heading.
Even when my Kindle e-reader was showing me that there was only about 10 percent more of the book to go, I kept believing Savage would salvage the story with some amazing twist. Or at least leave it open-ended to continue in a second book that would lead to the HEA I craved.Read more ›
A soldier wakes up in a lab with absolutely no memory and finds himself instantly attracted to the beautiful doctor studying him. He might be just numbers to her, but there is something about the captivating Dr. Riley Grace that boils his blood and makes his body scream with intense lust. All it takes is a touch from the good doctor and he is in his happy place. There is so much more to this story that meets the eye and if you’re a fan of science fiction and even if you’re not, you should give SPECIMEN a try. Savage is a great romantic suspense write. She lures you in with her words and her storyline and then just punches you in the stomach with an ending like this one.
After reading the epilogue, I wanted to experience it all over again. Did I want a different ending? I’m not sure, but I sure as hell wanted to absorb myself in Savage’s world again.
Now, I’m not a total fan of post-apocalyptic romances. I think that’s because there aren’t a lot of choices out there with the genre, but Shay took this to another level. She gave us an epic romance between two unlikely people, and poured some feels into the sucker! I LOVED it! I ENJOYED it immensely.
Oh and did I mention the male POV in SPECIMEN? Oh yeah baby! It was SOOOO good! If you are looking for a romantic suspense with some sci-fi elements and with an ending you will not be able to shake…SPECIMEN is your next read.

The Mills Conglomerate have managed to get their project off the ground and now Project Mindstorm is up and running, all we can ask is...Is the end result going to be worth the pain and hostility that is being waged! Because make no mistake, this is war, and Sten is caught up in the middle of it all.
I felt for him, he hadn’t a clue who the heck he was, never mind what was going on.
His pacifier, the balm to his rage was Riley Grace, she was the only thing that soothed his soul and i ws thankful that he had her, she was his godsend because not only was he easily riled, but when his power was unleashed, it was absolutely boundless!
He really possessed a strength that was beyond imagination.
But was everything as it seemed or were his emotions being as chemically warped as his physicality? The experiments were relentless but the results who knows where they were leading.
This was nothing like I had expected, it was more detailed and more exacting than I could have possibly ever got my head around.
Sten was an amazing character and it was impossible for me not fall hopelessly in love with him. He had a mask of mystery that intrigued me. And as for Riley, well I couldn’t have picked a better partner for him, she was everything that he wasn’t and that meant that together they made the perfect combination.
I liked the fact that their relationship made me want more for them, made me care and had me rooting for them all the way, despite the angst that the situation heaped upon them.
This is one of my favourite Shay Savage books, and I say that because it was unique, it isn’t trying to compete in a field that is loaded with similar storylines, this one stands head and shoulders above the rest.
