Love. It’s a strange thing, isn’t it? It can make you. Break you. Take you to places you’ve never been before. I know what they say about him. What he does for the Irish mafia in New York. But the thing is, love is blind. It binds. And now, we’re bound for life.
ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.
Carter Savage was the quiet broody bouncer (among other things) at the club Hot N’ Bothered. He prefers to keep to himself and watch people from afar than making a direct contact including a particular redhead.
Quinn was the sexy bartender at the club. Behind her seductive persona, she harbored a dark past. As much as she tried to run from it, it caught up to her and found a savior when she needed it the most.
I’m not selfish enough to have her. I’m a murderer. A fucked-up arsehole. I don’t deserve her.
Carter intrigued me from the last book. And I actually like his creepy stalker persona lol! He may be in the shadows but he got the job done when needed. I also like how protective he was of Quinn.
Yet again, I have reduced myself to that. The victim. The weak, little woman.
I like how assertive Quinn was. If she wanted something, she was not afraid to get it. But behind the tough exterior she was scarred.
What I like best about this book is the stalker element. It added intrigue to both the hero and the villain. Other than that, the story felt a little disconnected to me. The thing with the mob and her past didn’t converge as well as it should be.
The sex scenes were hot but I wanted more of it, especially the kinkiness. My favorite scene is the one when Carter was being a creepy in her bedroom. That was sickeningly hot haha!
We are chaotic and messy and not at all pretty… but this is us. This is ours.
Savage Savior is the story of a couple bound by their broken past. It would appeal to readers looking for a darker short sexy read.
