Natalie's Review
I know I know,  where have i been? why has it taken me so long to read, honest answer is I DONT KNOW!!!! but what can i say....  Ok I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!
The book starts on impact and you see the full force of the abuse that Ellie has been suffering since she was Seven years old with her mother telling her she will never be "wanted".  we see her go through relationships where her mothers words constantly ring in her ears. When Ellies meats Gunner she is instantly attracted she has never felt this was before about anyone but after being hurt by so many people Ellie decides that she will only be friends with gunner and no matter how hard he tries she is constantly running in th opposite direction.  
The relationship between Gunner and Ellie is so lovely,  you see how much he cares for her instantly and you are rooting for them to get together.  Speaking of Gunner OH BOY YUM YUM YUM.  HE IS SOOOOOO DELICIOUS I WANT TO LICK HIM FROM HEAD TO TOE AND BACK AGAIN... everything about him makes me wanna scream TAKE ME!!! any which way he pleases,   oh im droooling now.
The men in this series are seriously unbeleviably delicious my favorite is Jeff but i will go into that more when i write the review for Saved.
Ok so the story is written well,  you instantly feel connected to the charachters (Ari is my favorite out of them all) and you are pulled along feeling excited as to what was happening next.
so to finish i give this book a YEEE HAAA 5 STARS BABY
Saved (Wanted, #2) 
Arianna and Jefferson’s love is true but will it be enough?

Ari who comes from a loving home with a family who has had more than their share of difficulties, is faced with possibly losing the love of her life. All she dreams of is growing old and having children with Jeff, but a family history and a conniving Rebecca could shatter that dream. Trying to support Jeff and cope with all the truths and possibilities of her own destiny may prove to be more than one person can handle.

Jeff’s dream is to raise horses on his ranch in Mason with the only women who has ever filled his heart and soul. But he’s running the risk of losing her by trying to be the man he knows he should be by taking on his responsibilities. He’s completely bewitched by the passionate and always outspoken Ari, but needs to do right for the child that could possibly be his.

Despite all the odds stacked against them can their relationship be…..SAVED?
Natalie's Review 

Out of the two books, this is by far my favorite,  i loved everything about it especcially Jeff Hmmmmm Jeff ...... oh boy he is totally AMAZEBALLS,  What i love about Jeff is he isnt perfect he screws up, is terrified to admit his feelings (especially in Wanted) and more than that he is just as cluless in a relationship as most people... Jeff and Ari's relationship seemed a lot more real.  I loved Ari also it was so easy to connect to her,  she is the best friend every girl hopes to have and secretly wants to be,  she is feisty can stand up for herself and doesnt take any shit from anyone... although she is more lenient towards Jeff.

Some scenes in this book were heartbreaking and i had to stop reading while i wiped my eyes and re focused,  i was an emotional wreck!!!!!

we also got a introduction into the third book, Faithful,  Which is Josh and Heathers story and i have the feeling it is going to be even better and i am sooooooo excited for it 

I give Saved a Ride Em Gowgirl 5 Buckaroo Stars
