Book Spotlight: Saving Jay (Breaking Free #3) by E.M. Abel

Saving Jay

ARC for Review 


My life was a dark and desolate place. Consumed by work and full of regret, loneliness had become my closest friend. Ink and a tattoo machine were my therapy, a way to claim my own skin with the art that I loved. 
The day I walked into her shop, I knew I’d found what I needed. 
The light I’d been looking for. 

When I first looked into those blue eyes I saw a depth behind them that I wanted to explore. Jason “Jay” Clarke was more than a perfectly pressed suit and dimpled smile. He was a man with a heart of gold drowning in the weight of his world. 
He wanted me to mark him. 
I never expected him to soothe my aching heart. 

When our worlds collide and Jay begins to fall apart, will my love be enough to save him?  

**WARNING** Not recommended for younger readers due to sexual content, and language.

You Don't Find Love, Love Finds You

Its always bitter sweet when a series comes to a close. Saving Jay is the 3rd book in the Breaking Free Series and I have been highly anticipating it since I first read Freeing Asia. My heart always goes out to the unsung hero and I fell for Jay pretty flipping hard. Ms Abel turns up the heat with this one Jay and Jade are absolutely scorching. I highly highly recommend this series!

S-hame, his entire life Jay has wanted to make his own path. The lack of love he received tore away at his soul and would forever change him.
A-lone, Jade has felt the sting of betrayal for the last time she refuses to drown in sorrow so she will move on even if it rips her in two.
V-iews, Jay no longer wants the things he once did all his heart desires now is to find the person who was meant for him. Someone real in his world that is full of fake and power hungry vipers.
I-nk, a tool that has brought Jade much joy will be the tie that introduces these two unlikely soul mates.
N-ervous, Jay refuses to let a small thing like time coming between him and what he knows will be his future.
G-rowth, haunted by his past could mean the end to his future Jay will have to set his pride aside and hear things with an open mind.

J-ust, painful circumstances will come to a close an open hearted apology and forgiveness will go a long way towards the healing that has always eluded Jay.
A-dmitting, knowing that life is short Jay will stop at nothing to have Jade by his side once again. Trusting in her spirit and heart will be the key that unites them forever.
Y-ielding, to each other and knowing love is fearless will bring them the future they both deserve.

The ending was so perfect I could not have asked for a more perfect story. Ms. Abel does not disappoint her characters are raw and relatable. The end result is the realness that is projected through the pages. Jade was the perfect girl for Jay, her fire and spirit were just what he needed. These two had to overcome some personal issues and they did it marvelously but most importantly they did it together. Jay was just as magnificent as always and seeing him get his happy ending was what every fan wanted. This was a passionate read that touched my heart. We were able to catch up with the characters from the previous books in this series as well that is always nice. I cannot recommend this series enough! 

My Favs

His heart is his greatest gift. Not easy to trust but once he does he gives you his all. He had some issues to work out and let go of with the right guidance I’m happy to report he does just that. Get ready for a shocker that I did not see coming! I loved the way he worked so hard to repair what was once so broken.

I fell in love with her right away. Her spirit just jumped off the pages. She was in a very painful situation and had to figure out a way to move on without all the baggage that comes with the life she left behind. The way she was with her friends spoke volumes of the wonderful person Jade is. Talented beyond measure but still down to earth. She loved every moment in life so it was nice to see her share that with Jay. Jade touched his heart deeper than anyone before and he vowed to protect her forever.

My Rating

5.0 T.V. Show, Back Piece, Blind Date, Heals, Mother, Father, ALS, Red, Assistant, Business Help, Ice, Apartment, Surfing, Fight, Awkward, Forgiveness, Secrets, Unconditional Love Filled Stars!!

Letting go, Jay turned toward the table and pushed our dishes out of the way. My glass tipped over, spilling water onto the floor, but he didn’t seem to care.
“Sit down,” he told me, taking my hand and guiding me to the edge of the table.
I did as I had been told, getting up on my toes, before sliding over the edge and sitting in front of him. His warm hands ran up my thighs, and his eyes were so dark and passionate that I couldn’t look away.
Kneeling down, Jay picked up one of the belts from our robes before standing up again. “Do you trust me?” he asked, holding the belt in one of his hands.
I glanced at it before meeting his gaze. I did. I probably trusted him more than I should. “Yes,” I whispered, keeping my eyes on his.
Jay’s lips lifted on one side, exposing one of his dimples. “Good,” he said before lifting the white belt and putting it over my eyes.
I gasped in surprise as everything went black. The soft material held my eyes closed as he tied it behind my head. I could feel his warm body in front of me, his thighs touching the insides of my knees. The rain sounded louder as it hit the deck outside. Licking my lips, I waited for Jay to make his next move.
“Lie back,” he whispered next to my ear.
I grinned and slowly leaned back, afraid I might knock something over. Jay’s hands helped guide me down, and once my head touched, I relaxed on the hard wood. Jay’s warmth left me, and I felt so exposed, lying there while blindfolded before him.
A few seconds later, I heard movement in the kitchen. The refrigerator door opened and closed, and I worked to control the rhythm of my breaths as I waited. I vaguely heard Jay’s footsteps as he came back into the room. It was hard to hear anything with the storm outside. Jay’s leg brushed mine before he moved to stand between my legs again. I had to fight the urge to talk. I wanted to ask him what he was going to do. I wanted to beg him to touch me, but I also knew the silence was only building the connection between us.
I have to trust him.
"God, you're Beautiful," he said, his voice right above me.

About E.M. Abel

My husband is awesome and also a Chief in the US Navy. This means crazy schedules, uncertainty and lots of nights spent alone writing on my computer. I have two amazing kids who always know how to make me laugh. 

I've been passionate about writing since I wrote my first poem in the 3rd grade and I've been using it as a means to express myself since. 

I think because I hold my emotions so close and fear being vulnerable I use different forms of self expression- writing, drawing, painting, photography, tattoos- to show the world who I am.

The one rule I use everyday is the Golden Rule--"Treat others the way you'd like to be treated." I believe karma is very real and sometimes she can be a bitch if you make her that way. 

I love acting crazy, I love to laugh, I love making people laugh, I love the ocean, I love dancing like no one is watching, I love good music, I love good books... oh man I should probably stop there. I love a lot of stuff. 

Please feel free to write me or send a friend request.

  1. Awesome review Ria I never really read a book about unsung hero's before this book looks and sounds fantastic and your review most difinately peeked my intrest to check out these books! Thanks for the great review!

  2. I have read your reviews for both the previous books, and with each review my interest grows exponentially in this series. It is very different from the normal books that I read, but your reviews have made me want to step outside of my "norm" box in a big way. This series, I do believe, is the exact one to start me on a new adventure, and add another genre to my shelves! Thank you so much for your always wonderful reviews!


We love to hear your thoughts, and appreciate you stopping by :)
