I’ve lived in shadows all of my life
Feeling empty, but never knowing what I was truly missing
I’ve been taught to hide my talents and be invisible
Until Kendrix walks into my life and sees me. All of me.
I know he is my destiny, but he is holding himself back
There is something he isn’t telling me
I’m afraid when the truth comes out, it will tear us apart


I made a choice to give up my soul and forever alter my destiny
I embraced abilities that I’d kept hidden
But they don’t make up for what I’ve lost
It seems a cruel trick of Fate that I finally met the one who was meant to be mine
And yet, I can never have her
My job is to deceive Alysia and ultimately, to give her up
But the darkness calls to me
Tempting me to hide in the shadows with her forever 

I really enjoy when I see an Elle Christensen novel pop up for review. I'm one who is picky on my fantasy novels, and tend to lean towards those that I have read before, or that really pique my interest. With that being said, Saving Kendrix was really something that took me by a good way. From page one you can tell there is a much different writing style that Elle Christensen uses than she did in the previous novels. And, for this book in particular, I feel that it really did well. I, unfortunately, did not have the pleasure of reading the previous book, Chasing Hayleigh, but I didn't feel too completely lost while reading Saving Kendrix.

Kendrix must sacrifice his position within the Fae Guard in order to save the Fae species. A major decision that is not taken lightly by the Fae as well as the "elders" that come to the decision that Kendrix is the one to save them. Fate has stepped forward to nominate Kendrix to be the savior. Even through this novel, I really couldn't deal with Fate. She seems to have her all knowing status about her - I mean after all, her name is Fate! Truly enjoyed that Kendrix was prepared to take his life as a Fallen to the next step, and sacrifice his life, his status to save the Fae. What he isn't expecting is for his own Fate to step in, and make his life more interesting than what it's about to become.

Alysia is ball of energy. From the minute she is introduced in Saving Kendrix, I could tell she was going to be one of my favorites. Kendrix watches her from afar one night after being told who it is he is looking for. When he witnesses her performing less than stellar acts of breaking, and entering, he knows that she's going to be a hard one to crack. Which is so not what happens when they meet! The sparks that fire when the duo's eyes meet is just WOW. Alysia as a person throughout this novel was pretty badass. She's a great character that learns why Kendrix is there, as well as some of her own history that she wasn't aware of in the first place. Overall, a great heroine that pulls Kendrix into the person he needs to be.

As Saving Kendrix comes to an end, you will be asking so many questions. Not questions concerning the novel, but more questions that have you questioning your own life, and choices, and life styles. Kendrix shows an undying love for Alyisa when they meet, and it is utterly outstanding throughout the novel. There is so much good throughout this series. Between developed characters, a very well developed story line, and a story that leaves the reader wanting more, Elle Christensen really pulls her readers in for an outstanding story. 

I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance. 

I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books. 

I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention. 

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!
