Blog Tour & #Giveaway: #Transcendence by #ShaySavage

 Title: Transcendence
Author: Shay Savage
Genre: Pre-historical Romance
It’s said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn’t have the ability to comprehend language?
Ehd’s a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He’s strong and intelligent, but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful young woman in his pit trap, it’s obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. He doesn’t know where she came from; she’s wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache. Still, he’s determined to fulfill his purpose in life – provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.
Elizabeth doesn’t know where she is or exactly how she got there. She’s confused and distressed by her predicament, and there’s a caveman hauling her back to his cavehome. She’s not at all interested in Ehd’s primitive advances, and she just can’t seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive, but beautiful, man is a constant – and often hilarious – struggle.
With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months. As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.

4 I just fell for a caveman stars
I will provide for her. I will give her anything she wants.

Have you ever wondered if it is possible to read a book that only has about 4 words of dialogue yet still love it?

Have you also ever wondered of what would happen if a prehistoric book mated with a Nicholas Sparks book?

If I was a fan of Shay Savage before reading this, I am now full on

This was an amazing, beautiful, one of a kind love story. It was unlike anything I have ever read and I doubt I’d read again. It was unique. It was unforgettable.

I struggled with my rating at first since it did take me a bit to get into the story. I did skim through some parts and found it to be slow in others. But considering it’s been 2 days since I’ve finished and I still can’t stop thinking about it? It deserves nothing less of the 4 glorious stars.

If you read the blurb and are expecting a domineering “caveman” caveman type alpha (You know the type. The “me man you woman we bang” type of caveman”), well you’ll be sadly disappointed. Ehd was nothing like that.

He was vulnerable, sweet, constantly doubting himself with Beh, and at the same time so incredibly endearing that you can’t help but completely fall for him. His inner thoughts never failed to put a smile on my face.

What if I don’t fit inside her?
After all this time of waiting for her to want me, what will I do if I am unable to mate with Beh?
I take a calming breath and assure myself I will fit inside of her. Women are supposed to stretch there so babies can be put inside and come back out when they’re ready. If something the size of a baby can come out, surely my penis can go in.
It’s big, but it’t not that big!

The story is told entirely in Ehd’s POV. The fact that Shay Savage was able to write an entire book from a caveman’s POV that has about 3 words in his whole vocabulary just shows her incredible talent as an author. It’s no small feat let me tell you.

You don’t get much more insight into Elizabeth that what Ehd is able to gather from his perspective.

It wasn’t a quick paced book. There wasn’t a lot of action, no dirty talk, or filthy dirty caveman loving. Don’t get me wrong, it was still steamy, in a very sweet first time discovery way. Both Elizabeth, or Beh as he calls her, and Ehd are innocently naive. But that just added to the appeal for me.

It is told over the span of many years, and unfolds the story of love at it’s most innocent and pure. It was beautiful, albeit not my usual type of book.

Then there was that ending. Oh my poor cold little heart, that ending!

The only other time I cried like that was at the end of (The Notebook)[The Notebook (hide spoiler)]. Good lord. (Highlight to view spoilers)

And just as you think it’s over, Shay gives you a last chapter that just ties everything together.

Were there some discrepancies in the story? Sure. (How can Elizabeth live her entire life in the tribe and even her children talk, but no one else in the tribe, not even Ehd pick up more words? )[How can Elizabeth live her entire life in the tribe and even her children talk, but no one else in the tribe, not even Ehd pick up more words? (hide spoiler)]
But this is not really a book that you expect to be highly realistic, so I didn’t harp on that.

So if you’re looking for a different and unique book about a beautiful and innocent love and discovery, this is not to be missed. You will fall for Ehd just like I did. It’s one of those books that will stick with you for a while.
