Book Review – Deklan by Shay Savage


WOWZER!!!! Intense and steamy!!



My father owes a debt.

I am his currency.

I’m supposed to marry the recently crowned mafia king of the Foley family as repayment for my father’s transgressions. I don’t understand why the Foleys would want me, but I’ve grown up in a crime family, and I know the ugly consequences of not doing what you’re told.

But as the wedding date approaches, the deal changes, and I’m about to be wed to a man I know nothing about. In fact, I don’t even know his last name.
Instead of becoming a mafia princess, I’m marrying the henchman.


After one look at him, I’m not sure I’ll survive the wedding night.


Expected publication: June 20th 2017





This book was exactly what I needed!!!

From the very beginning the tension was high. Shay Savage certainly knows how to keep the tension up. I was sitting on the edge of my chair throughout the entire book.

Deklan was a highly emotional, sexy and steamy read but also insanely gripping and fascinating. It was no wonder that I was invested in the plot and characters from the very first page. But that’s not unusual. Whenever I read a book by Shay Savage I’m all in – there is NO MIDDLE GROUND. She has an amazing talent when it comes to writing unique plot lines about dominant and dangerous heroes. Deklan was no exception.

The hero of this book Deklan, was the executer of a mafia family. Ever sine the head of the family gave him work as a teenager and than later on treated him like a son, Deklan was loyal to the Foley Family and did everything that was asked of him. In return he felt like he belonged.

When he was asked to marry Kera his life was about to change drastically.

Kera, a pawn in a bigger game was her father’s payment for his debt to the head of the Foley family. But instead of marrying the mafia prince she was  supposed to marry their killer Deklan. Both men were strangers to her and made her weary in their own way, but only one man would be her future.

I adored Deklan. He was dangerous but also had a conscience when it came to killing. His size alone evoked fear in his victims. His brooding and cold demeanor did the rest. But surprisingly, he was the very opposite with Kera. Utterly devoted and doting. With his help she started to come out of her shell and blossom into a strong female that had a strong man to lean on.

And OMG they certainly turned up the HEAT!!! WOWZER!!! The sex was HOT!!!

This novel had everything I was expecting. It had stellar characters, a thrilling and suspenseful plot, an awesome cameo(!!!!) and a beautiful and satisfying ending. Deklan was another proof that I dig Shay Savage‘s writing. She gets me. 😀 Her books have always been one-clicks for me and many have found their way on my keeper shelf. The one thing that stands out again and again – her books are always UNIQUE!!!!
