Review of Transcendence by Shay Savage!!


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.
Genre Pre-historical Romance
Expected Publication Date February 14th 2014
 I so loved this book!!!  I loved Ehd's personality.  

Ehd is a caveman, who has only one responsibility.  Survival.  

When he discovers a woman in his hunting pit, he thinks he's seeing things.  He is all alone in a very unforgiving wilderness.  Losing his tribe and his people to a fire, there has been no one else for a very long time.  At first he thinks it's an animal, and is shocked to find a woman.  

His reaction to her is one of absolute confusion.  It's obvious she's talking to him, but he doesn't understand a word of what she is saying.  He doesn't know how to talk; his only way of communication is making noises, which he does often with her.  

He doesn't know what clothes are, and is baffled by what she is wearing and how they were made.  Her make up is another story entirely.  Everything about her is a question to him, but he's determined to keep her as his mate.  Since she's deathly afraid of him, he knows he has to get her to like him if he has any chance at all with her.  

Elizabeth doesn't know what the hell is going on.  She doesn't know where she is, but she does know this caveman is terrifying.  She's desperately trying to communicate with him, and since it's pretty clear he doesn't speak a word of English, it's really funny how they are with each other in the beginning.

I really enjoyed this book!  I loved discovering things with Ehd, and seeing his absolute determination to make Elizabeth like him.  He knew she would die out in the wilderness by herself, and it was his duty to protect and take care of her.  

Thankfully, my mate does not wake up as I crawl back into the furs beside her. I know she needs to rest. I take a moment to look at her in the flickering firelight. Her eyes are closed, but the blotchy remnants of her sorrow are still evident on her cheeks.

I want to touch her skin, but I don’t want to wake her. Unable to control the urge completely, I touch the skin of her face carefully. I reach down to her strange clothing again, and my fingers brush from her shoulder, over her breast, and down to her waist as I enjoy the feel of the cloth compared to the rough skin of my hand.

She stirs slightly, so I still my movements, deciding to be satisfied with leaving one arm wrapped around her. I stretch out next to her and pull the furs up to make sure she is warm enough. Her mouth opens slightly, and she makes more strange noises in her sleep. The sounds are very soft and deep in tone. Her face scrunches up a bit, and her breathing becomes more rapid. I hold her closer to me until she relaxes back into deeper sleep.

I know I must be right, and she has recently lost her people. I wonder what happened to them and if I will ever know for sure. It doesn’t matter now, anyway—I will be her mate, and I will take care of her from now on. I just need to figure out a way to stop her from being frightened of me. There are so many things I will need from her as well: she will need to gather food for the winter, cook the meat I bring back for her, and accept me into her body so I can give her children.

The thought of that brings another smile to my face and a tingling feeling between my legs.
However, she seems so frightened of me now, I don’t think she would readily position herself on her hands and knees so I can fill her. Still, I am much stronger, and if I want inside of her, I can just hold her while I enter her body. Joining with her in such a way would still feel very good, I imagine, but I don’t like it when she yells and cries, and I think she would probably do that if I have to hold her down to mate with her.
These thoughts are making my penis lengthen and become stiff. I consider stroking myself, but I am afraid it will wake her. I sigh as I look down on her sleeping face and wonder how long it will be before I can properly mate with her. I touch her cheek softly again, and I know when I decide to lie with her, I want her to enjoy it. So how do I get that to happen?

Finally, after thinking about it a long time, I decide I need to make her like me.
