Ariana's review:

4 STARS!

I really enjoyed reading Salvaged! The book continued the story of Dina and Ryder, as well as diving further into the relationship between Brayden and Maggie. It combined two main stories into one, and alternated between a couple different POV's. I liked the way Chelsea did the different POV's in Salvaged because each time it changed from one to another, it continued the story instead of repeating the same part over again. This led for a much smoother read in my opinion. It is difficult for me to write too much about the actual story itself because there are quite a few things that could spoil it for someone who has not yet read it. I remember being just over halfway through the book and having so many questions I just NEEDED answers for. Who was Bianca? What happened to her? What was Brayden's big secret and why did he keep thinking to himself "It should have been me"? It was killing me... but in a good way, and held my interest throughout the entire story. Chelsea did not disappoint as each and every question I had was answered by the time I reached the end. There were definitely some parts which actually had me laughing, like when Dina walked in on Maggie and Brayden naked... her reaction was priceless! 

As the story progresses you get to see a side of Brayden which you had not seen in Restore My Heart. He was troubled, and haunted, but through it all he still loved Maggie with all his heart. But will that love be enough to pull them through what is happening in their lives?

"Maggie, I love you baby, always have always will. My fire and ice, my wild and my calm, you are the only good I have ever had in my life."

Towards the end of the book, Maggie's brother Harrison begins to play a larger part in the story. He moves to Charlotte, and stays with Maggie which really helps get her through a very hard time in her life. Things are going well for him... He has a job working at Ryder's shop, has become close with Sophia (Maggie's friend), and is really enjoying  living there and almost forgetting about his past... until...
*ENTER CLIFFHANGER* AHHHHHHHHHHHH! At least the cliffhanger isn't as bad as the one from Restore My Heart, but still! I cannot wait to see what happens next! Thank god Beyond Repair is almost here!!!!
