Présentation de l'éditeur

"Yep. This is one of thoooose. It had everything I look for in an unputtdownable read. An unfathomable life or death event, and every scary detail to have me living it with them."
-Maryse.net

"There’s a moment when it comes to amazing books... where you realize that the book you’re reading completely and irrevocably owns you... [Surviving Raine] has that moment."
- Ash the Book Snob

As the captain of a schooner catering to the elite on the Caribbean Seas, Sebastian Stark does his best to avoid any human encounters. Interacting with people isn’t his thing, and he prefers the company of a bottle of vodka, a shot glass, and maybe a whore. There’s no doubt he’s hiding from a checkered past, but he does well keeping everything to himself…

…until the night his schooner capsizes, and he’s stuck on a life raft with one of the passengers.

Raine’s young, she’s cute, and Bastian would probably be into her if he wasn’t suffering from alcohol withdrawal. As the days pass, DTs, starvation, and dehydration become the norm. Even the most closed person starts to open up when he thinks he’s going to die, but when she realizes their traumatic pasts are connected, it’s no longer the elements that have Bastian concerned.

He has no idea how he’s going to Survive Raine.

"Shay Savage's website almost cockily proclaims that she writes "Fiction with Teeth". HA! Nothing cocky about the truth, my friends. I guarantee, that is maybe the *only* accurate way to sum up the dark, unsettling, exciting, unapologetic, fascinating, shocking, frank, graphic, primal, crude, sexy, at times horrific, consistently compelling experience that is Surviving Raine!!"
-Elizabeth (Sweptawaybyromance.com)

"There are moments in Surviving Raine that will make you laugh, make you cry, and make your heart (and other parts) clench. This is one you will definitely want to put on your TBR list!"
-Kassie and Lauren (fics2flicks.com)

À vingt-neuf ans, Bastian Stark est le capitaine d’un navire de croisière de luxe, The Oblation. Alcoolique invétéré, fumeur et amateur de prostituées, il ne se soucie de rien ni de personne. Si ce n’était la présence de son meilleur ami à bord avec lui, il y aurait peu de chance qu’il soit bon à quoi que ce soit.

C’est en pleine croisière dans les Caraïbes que le drame se produit. Le navire chavire en pleine mer. Ivre et endormi, Bastian rate les chaloupes mais réussit à rejoindre le radeau de fortune. C’est là qu’il va trouver une jeune femme dans l’eau, l’une de ses passagères, et lui sauver la vie.

Commence alors un voyage long, éprouvant et dangereux. Ce sont les jours, puis les semaines, qui défileront tandis que nos deux rescapés doivent apprendre à cohabiter et surtout survivre ensemble, rationnant l’eau et la nourriture sur le radeau.

Fait intéressant, le récit est entièrement raconté du point de vue de Bastian. L’auteur a su nous créer une sorte de anti-héros auquel on ne peut toutefois que s’attacher. Bastian est un véritable salaud de première. Avec seulement trois cigarettes et sans la moindre goutte d’alcool, la désintoxication va être dure à vivre, pour lui mais aussi pour Raine. Il va se montrer odieux avec elle, lui criant dessus, l’injuriant…

Raine est tout l’opposée de Bastian. Elle est jeune (vingt ans) et peut paraître faible au premier abord, mais c’est une personne qui a une grande force intérieure et surtout le cœur sur la main.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Une des plus belles dark romance que j'ai pu lire 1 novembre 2014
Par Samba COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEUR TOP 50 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Format Kindle
J’ai adoré ce récit et pourtant le huis clos n’est pas vraiment un style d’histoire que j’apprécie, de plus le héros Bastian (enfin non l’anti héros serait plus adéquat) est abject, alcoolique et amateurs de prostituées, fumeur invétéré et égoïste, je me suis demandée pourquoi il avait fait le geste de sauver Raine. Cependant, au fil du récit après qu’ils se sont échoués, et que les démons du passé difficile de Bastian ressurgissent, à cause de ce sevrage forcé, une touche de beauté apparait dans ce personnage. Je ne dis pas que je comprends son attitude, d'autant plus que certains passages sont violents, mais je lui ai trouvé des excuses, c’est quelque part une victime et ces excès étaient pour lui un moyen d’oublier.

Raine est le contraire de Bastian, gentille, compréhensive, à l’écoute, et au départ je me suis posée la question comment une personne avec autant d’empathie allait pouvoir résister aux débordements d’un tel homme. Eh bien, simplement, parce que derrière cette façade de perfection, il y a une force incroyable, elle ne reculera jamais, faisant front à la violence et l’agressivité de Bastian. Tout glisse sur elle, et pourtant les conditions de survie sont difficiles, les restrictions, les sautes d’humeur, certains penseront que c’est une forme de naïveté, je pense plus que c’est une femme perspicace qui a décelé la fêlure dans Bastien.

j'adore le style et l'écriture de Shay Savage depuis que j'ai lu par hasard «transcende». Elle rentre dans les relations femmes/hommes avec une grande sensibilité même si elle expose ces relations dans leur absolue nudité. ses personnages se retrouvent toujours isolés et se construisent contre l'adversité et trouvent le moyen de s'aimer, grâce ou à cause de leurs différences.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 4 stars! Surviving Raine, book 1! 2 broken people from ship-wreck face dire conditions, but biggest obstacles are demons within. 21 mai 2013
Par Avid Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Surviving Raine is the story of Bastian and Raine who end up shipwrecked on a 10 foot emergency raft after Bastian's schooner, Oblation capsizes in the Caribbean Sea. Dire weather conditions and limited supplies of food, water, alcohol and cigarettes put them on a collision course with disaster as an injured Bastian is forced to detox leaving Raine to take care of him and keeping them alive. Both Bastian and Raine have trouble pasts. Once Bastian wakes up a friendship is forged and a romance ensues while their past comes back to haunt them. They are faced with danger and many set-backs while they are waiting to be rescued. But they are also rewarded as secrets are uncovered. Their story is a journey of self-discovery, making peace with one's demons and taking a chance on love.

Hero: Sebastian Stark aka Bastian aka Daniel Greene/29 years old/Captain-former tournament fighter/Masters in English Literature/dark hair/light blue eyes/alcoholic/6'2"
Heroine: Raine Gayle/20 years/College student/dark brown hair/dark brown eyes/5'2"

Bastian Stark aka Daniel is the Captain and owner of Oblation. For the last couple of years his life has been spinning out of control with him constantly drunk. He's lucky to have the help and support of his two friends to run his cruise business. He has reasons for his self-destructive behavior and we learn more about his heart-wrenching childhood and his demons as the story unfolds Bastian the child had nothing handed to him and the lost child is still apparent in Bastian the man.

Five words to describe Bastian: Sarcastic, broken, sexy, brooding and protective.

Raine Gayle also has demons to deal with, albeit more recent. She was a lost soul just drifting through life and taking this cruise was supposed to be the start of a new beginning. As odd as it may sound, ending up ship-wrecked with Bastian might have been the best thing that could have happened to her.

Five words to describe Raine: Sweet, unassuming, loyal, lonely and private.

My only grievance was that the middle of the story was at times a little too detailed and longwinded.

Surviving Raine is told from Bastian's POV and the book title indicates his frustration and fear surviving the shipwreck and his struggle with Raine, who he feels an instant attraction to. As they are waiting to be rescued, Bastian is focused on survival while Raine becomes more and more determined to save Bastian from the demons of his past.

"Don't touch me," I clarified.
"Why not?"
Because I want it and I don't deserve it...."

***
"Your...acceptance of me," I said. "That's really my favorite thing about you. I don't know why you put up with my s***, but I'm glad you do."

For me it was a treat to get a story written from the hero's POV. Both Bastian and Raine are wonderful and you'll find yourself rooting for them to make I through and to get their HEA.

I am happy to report that this is not the end of their story. Book 1 leaves them in a good place, but in the epilogue, unbeknownst to them both, there is danger lurking. Book 2 is expected to be released sometime in 2014.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You will not be able to put down once you start reading it! 20 mai 2013
Par LuciaCalwen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Surviving Raine was my first survival story and I loved it! This book is about human will to survive, about not giving up even in the worst possible conditions, about fighting for your life. This story is about messed up individual getting first chance for true happiness, about finding love under most unexpected circumstances and about finally feeling worthy of yourself. Surviving Raine is intense, emotional, rough and exciting story which you will not be able to put down once you start reading it!

Sebastian is not a people's person. He may be a captain of a schooner cathering, sailing people around the Caribbean Seas but rather than making some contact with people, he prefers a bottle of something strong and local h**ker here and there.

From the beginning it is clear that Bastian drinks because he needs to forget things from his past and to keep his nightmares away. So when during one of voyages his ship crashes and he finds himself on a life raft with one of the passangers and without any alcohol at all, his withdrawals bring all demons back. Especially when he realizes that Raine is connected with his past in the way he never expected...

Bastian's head was one depressive and messed up place. Once absence of alcohol makes it presence, his otherwise bad temper and sulky nature turns into full-blown craziness. Be prepare for some nasty times, as always when it comes to addict in detox. Once I found out things about his past, there were moments I didn't know what to think about him. But seing it all from his point of view? I could not bring myself to judge or hate him. He was just victim of system and sad events in his life. His story touched my heart and I ended up accepting who he was and loving him nonetheless. Kudos to author for making me feel this way about Bastian, he is one of the characters who will stay with me forever!

Raine was inspiring character. She was nice, loving, understanting even when it came to things when most people would not be able get over with. I admired her for her inner strenght, for never backing down. Moreover, she had a feisty side too and she never left Bastian bullied her. I really liked her. Her stubborness, kindness and affection helped her to break down protective barriers Bastian built arround himself and got to know his true self.

Writing was captivating, I could not tear myself away from this book. Moreover, hero POV is my favourite one so this book was like a treat for me. Plotline was exciting, never boring and even though there is no cliffhanger I already cannot wait for sequel!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For Those Who LOVE The Dark And Twisty... 21 mai 2013
Par Liz Murach - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
REVIEWED FOR: Swept Away By Romance

Shay Savage's website almost cockily proclaims that she writes "Fiction with Teeth". HA! Nothing cocky about the truth, my friends. I guarantee, that is maybe the *only* accurate way to sum up the dark, unsettling, exciting, unapologetic, fascinating, shocking, frank, graphic, primal, crude, sexy, at times horrific, consistently compelling experience that is Surviving Raine!!

Truly, there is just no adequate way to summarize this story. There may not even be any way to review this book and do it any kind of justice. Attempting to convey just what Surviving Raine is and does and makes you feel? No, really. I don't believe it's possible. If that's a cop-out, then it's a cop-out, but it would take a far better review than myself to be able to express....this....bizarre, violent, emotional, sexy mess of a story.

**********
Here's the official blurb:
As the captain of a schooner catering to the elite on the Caribbean Seas, Sebastian Stark does his best to avoid any human encounters. Interacting with people isn't his thing, and he prefers the company of a bottle of vodka, a shot glass, and maybe a whore. There's no doubt he's hiding from a checkered past, but he does well keeping everything to himself...

...until the night his schooner capsizes, and he's stuck on a life raft with one of the passengers.

Raine's young, she's cute, and Bastian would probably be into her if he wasn't suffering from alcohol withdrawal. As the days pass, DTs, starvation, and dehydration become the norm. Even the most closed person starts to open up when he thinks he's going to die, but when she realizes their traumatic pasts are connected, it's no longer the elements that have Bastian concerned.

He has no idea how he's going to Survive Raine.
**********

Sebastian is....indescribable. I know what you're thinking. You write reviews on a daily basis. Can you not do ANY BETTER THAN THIS?! But, how do you describe a character that is so horrifying one minute and so loving the next? In the real world, and even in this fictional world, I would call him mentally ill. This man is ALL. OVER. THE. MAP. He needs therapy. He needs medication. He probably needs a prison sentence. He may even need a psychiatric ward. Here's the real kicker. I found him fantastically compelling and absolutely mesmerizing. Yeah. I may need a room in that psychiatric ward right next to Sebastian Stark!

Then there's poor, innocent, slightly stupid Raine. Well, that may not be fair. She's very young. And Sebastian is....maybe more than a little bit of a psychopath. She puts up with A LOT from him. She begins to feel she understands him and where his behavior originates from. She believes there is something worth loving in the man. There were times when I wouldn't have disagreed with her.

Anyone who can write a story like this and elicit the kinds of reactions I've had, and continue to have, has serious talent. I don't even know where the idea for a story like this comes from. I sure as sheep don't know where a character like Sebastian Stark comes from! But, what I do know is that there are very few authors I'm aware of who could have written Surviving Raine. Scary talent. As in, YOU SCARE ME....and you're talented, too ;-)

If this story is "Fiction with Teeth", then those teeth sunk deep into my gut, my head, my heart, my soul. They grabbed on with everything they had and didn't once let go! Surviving Raine will shake you up, toss you around, play with your insides, and then convince you that you MUST HAVE MORE!!

I know for a fact I can't be the only person out there who has been and will be blown away by Shay Savage and her scary talent. All my dark, gritty, twisty story lovers? Step up, sit down, and READ! This one's for you, with love, from Shay Savage.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Implausible plot, unlikeable characters 2.5 stars 27 juin 2013
Par teriwu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Wow, I really wanted to like this book. But I didn't and at 60% I started skimming.

The premise is good. Two people thrown together after a shipwreck, trying to survive in the ocean on a little life raft. The hero has outstanding survival skills and takes care of the heroine in a touching manner. That's about all I liked about it. The first half of the story is too drawn out to the point of being boring and the second half is just ludicrous.

The hero is a tortured soul who is in dire need of love. Unfortunately he has no impulse control and is verbally abusive at best. The heroine is weak and needy, not someone I would want as a survival partner. The two of them together are a recipe for a Lifetime movie on spousal abuse. I can't give any spoilers but at one point I was like "really?, this is how he deals with his anger and fear?". The boy needs serious help. More psychotic than sexy.

The plot has plenty of twists and turns but unfortunately each is more unrealistic than the previous one. After the second drama I thought to myself "this is just ridiculous". I barely finished it and will definitely not read part 2.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Possessive Hero? Yes, please! 2 juin 2013
Par Emily - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Yes, Sebastian has Issues. Serious Issues. The story is told from his POV, and we quickly realize he is crude, misogynistic, over-sexed, anti-social, alcoholic, neurotic, paranoid, and probably qualifies as psychotic too. And I loved him! I loved his mad survival skills, his hidden gentleness, his sense of humor, and his smexy ways. Most of all, I loved the way he loved Raine--obsessively, possessively, totally gone for her. For those of you who follow the Crazy in Love/Crazy Jealous thread, you're going to love this guys. He fights his feelings for Raine out of fear and sense of worthlessness, but when he gives in--Wowsa. He's definitely pi--ing circles. And when bad guys try to take her away, he goes nuts on them! His cray-cray comes out, but you can't blame him. Raine is everything and everyone he's never had and still doesn't think he deserves, and he will never let her go.
I loved the way Raine responded to his problems, his threats, and even his violence. Even though she cries A LOT, she has good reason(ship-wreck, castaway, plus this guy's uber angst). She's a completely sympathetic character. And while the author leaves the door wide open for a sequel, I wouldn't call this a cliff-hanger at all, so enjoy!
