I'm not exactly the social type. After spending most of my formative years in prison, I prefer an isolated existence in the wilderness of Canada's Northwest Territories, making what little cash I need guiding tourists to the best hunting grounds. I have no desire for company; I crave solitude instead, especially during the subarctic winter months, but what am I supposed to do when I come across a woman in distress? I can't just leave her to die in the cold, and a storm is on the way.
So now we are confined to my secluded cabin, and I quickly realize there's something not quite right about Seri-or is her name Netti? She switches moods faster than a snowshoe hare changes direction. In fact, I'm starting to think there's more than one person behind the mystifying woman's intense, green eyes.
Physically, only two of us are trapped inside the rustic cabin, but I still feel outnumbered.

The only thing to say about Outnumbered by Shay Savage is buckle up, you are in for quite a ride! I knew from reading the synopsis it would be a different romance, and I was right! Shay Savage had me under her spell from the beginning. My mind is still reeling somewhat! Bishop isn’t the social type. He has found some peace living in solitude in Canada’s Northwest Territories. He lives off the land, and he is fine with that, especially after spending many years in prison. He has a few people in town he talks with but never developing any kind of deep relationship. One woman will turn the idea of a relationship on its head. When Bishop returns home after a day of hunting, he finds a woman, Seri, in major distress. Before he can get any answers, she passes out. When she awakens, he will do what he can to help her move on, but as he spends more time with her, she begins breaking down the walls of his heart. Yet, there is something strange going on with her, her moods switch very quickly…almost as if there is another person inhabiting her body. When you discover Seri’s story, your mind will be blown!!! Speaking of characters…Bishop and Siri are possibly the most diverse and complicated characters I’ve ever met. Bishop is really a good man deep in his soul, but because of his past, he believes he is quite the opposite. His solitary existence is because he feels as if he needs to protects other. He thinks he is a danger to anyone around him. However, Seri, gives him some peace, and he finds himself slowly trusting her and loving her. She will definitely test how deep his love runs for her. Now to Seri…there are so many sides to her. She, like Bishop, has not had the best life. She has experienced pain in her past which directly influenced the adult she would become. My heart went out to her, and I, like Bishop, found myself falling in love with her. If two people deserve happiness and peace, it’s definitely Bishop and Seri! I know when I pick up a Shay Savage book to read, I don’t judge it by the synopsis. She always has some twists in store for me, and this book is no different. It is her unique way of writing and her characterization that pulls me into each and every word she writes. For instance, I felt like I was right there in the harsh Canadian Northwest Territories with them. I could clearly see each thing in my mind, and she does it in a way that doesn’t bog me down. It just adds even more depth to the book. Her writing also tugs at my emotions, whether it’s happy or sad. She makes me feel what the character is feeling, and that makes me feel a deep connection with the book and the characters. Her endings are always fit who her characters are! ***Read and Reviewed for Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews***
It’s best to go into this book with as little knowledge of the storyline as possible. There are definitely twist, although not as many or as astounding as I had hoped. I was still shocked by the ones that were delivered. Bishop was quite a different kind of hero and this is written entirely in his point of view. I really didn’t feel the absence of Seri’s voice which is unusual when I read a single POV. I enjoyed watching Bishop deal with the changes that were occurring in his life and his cabin even as I was horrified by some of his thoughts. And yet, Seri is definitely the driving force of the story and I was totally engrossed in everything she said or did. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was completely original, at least in my reading experience, and as I said, had a few twists. While there’s a lot of internal reflection it still had a nice pace to it. The steam factor was okay but to be honest, I didn’t really feel a lot of chemistry between the characters. Then again, I felt like this book wasn’t about the romance despite the building relationship between Bishop and Seri. It was overshadowed by the questions that when answered only bred new questions. Definitely a great read for anyone who likes a little romance, tinged with just a bit of darkness, with their suspense/mystery/thrillers. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Holy. Crap. This book. One thing about Shay Savage is you’re guaranteed to get a story unlike anything you’ve ever read before. Outnumbered is a flawlessly written, completely unique, mind blowing story. I was completely captivated right from the prologue and spent hours not moving just stuck completely sucked into this unputdownable read. There is SO MUCH to these characters, yet I don’t want to describe them too much. Part of what makes this book so incredible is the slow process of peeling back the layers to finally discover who they really are. There were so many layers, new discoveries that had me gasping. I spent so much time trying to figure things out only to be blown away when the answers were finally revealed. Love, loss, grief, suspense, mystery, and of course some nice heat all combine to create an amazing book in Outnumbered.
