Book Review - Salvage by Tiffany Aleman

My Thoughts

Salvage is an emotional roller coaster ride that I couldn't put down until the very last page. It's a story about a woman whose life was forever changed by a group of kids who went way beyond bullying her years ago. It all comes back to Karmen when Braydon comes into her life again. She left everything behind when she moved away, but came back when her father was dying. It broke my heart not only to read what she had gone through at the hands of the mean kids, but also what her home life was like at the same time. She came out of it so strong. When Braydon pursues her, it brings up all the bad memories of that time when he stood by and watched it all happen. Braydon has his own demons that he struggles with, but wants more with Karmen. I wanted to smack him a time or two throughout their story, but so wanted them to be able to overcome everything to be together. There is quite the cliffhanger and I can't wait to read what happens next.

I give Salvage 5 hearts!

About the Book

Stereotypical trailer trash. That’s how people saw me. I’m Karmen Butler, the girl everyone teased, tortured, pranked—bullied.

After graduating high school, I left my shithole of a town behind with no intentions of ever returning. My dreams were within my grasp. Or so I thought…

Luck. That’s what was on his side. Brayden Stephens was on top of the world and the biggest prick of all. At least that’s how I remember him. Then he lost it all. His vices took over and now he’s a washed-up has-been with a cocky smirk and arrogant attitude.

Valued. That was how he made me feel. One night changed everything for us. In an instant I was lost to his touch, his voice. Everything about him captivated me.

Against my better judgment, I let him in. I let him see the real me. Since he’d walked into my office, he’d been trying to redeem himself of his past mistakes.

Glimpses of a love and life I’d never known before were all he had given me. Now he’s done it, the one thing he said he wouldn’t. He’s broken me. AGAIN.

Excuses are what I was fed. The truth restrained him, bound him to his past, and now, I’m left to deal with the aftermath.

Is there anything left to SALVAGE?

I don’t know…

You tell me.

About the Author

I am a wife and mother with an obsession for the written word. Since I was a child, I've always dabbled in writing. One day I decided to put pen to paper and never looked back. Writing isn't something I do just for fun. It's something I live and breathe. Smoldering was a book I wrote in 13 days. Everyone thought I was crazy but since I've published, it has made me and International Bestseller, been picked up on audio book by Tantor Media Publishing, and it's currently in the process being published in German. It's been a crazy ride that I hope to never get off of. So many people have supported me and I will forever be grateful. For the fans, you mean the world to me; I write for you.
