Welcome to the mysterious world of the rich and the damned in this gritty, modern day fairy tale. Two star-crossed lovers will either find their destiny or meet their fate in a world where demons come in the form of familiar faces and pawns aren’t just players, but deadly.

She was my destiny.

I was her downfall.

We were a match made in hell.

But when we were together, that hell was pure heaven.

The moment I laid eyes on her, I knew she would pay the price for my sins. I wasn’t much older than she was, but old enough to know better. Old enough to know she would be good for me and I was bad for her. But I pursued her anyway. Back then I had hope that maybe she could change my future.

Maybe together we could change our fate...





Wow, where do I start with this! It was freakin’ fantastic! And this is my first book from Scott too, so I wasn’t familiar with her writing or anything but she really blew me away. Savage is a tale of star crossed lovers, and what more could I ask for.

Alexander and Sara Jane are high school sweethearts, but Alexander has some secrets that could put Sara Jane in danger. He has tried to keep her safe, but Sara Jane keeps pushing for him to tell her what he is hiding but whether or not she will be prepared for the truth is a different story because it isn’t pretty.

We get their story in dual points of view and with flashbacks to the past and it was a great way for this to be written, because Alexander and Sara Jane were already in a relationship when we were first introduced to them. So, we don’t really know a lot about events that went on in the past or about their time together. It wasn’t hard to figure out that from the their relationship was intensely complicated but sweet from the start. They are soul mates, they are drawn together, and no matter what happened, their love never for one another never wavered.

Now, Alexander is the handsome, brooding type, but he is fighting his own personal demons, and Sara Jane seemed to be a little naive at first but as the story went on I realized she really wasn’t. I found that she was just a sweetheart and was the one person who loves him no matter what “demons” he had, she only saw the good in him. Their love for each was completely breathtaking.

The story is non-stop from the beginning, there is so much going on, drama, uncovering of secrets and danger lurking. My head was kinda spinning from it all. And the faster I turned the pages, the more I became captivated by their story, their love and before I knew it I was at the end and it left me with so many unanswered questions, I wanted more. No needed more. Luckily, I went and got the second book right away, so the cliffhanger ending didn’t kill me for long and now I am anxious to continue on with Savior, Book 2. This is definitely a fantastic start the the series.

Savage is dark and intense, it’s gritty but romantic and pulls you in and doesn’t let you go. On to book two now!!!

    Sounds like lots of exciting thing going on in this book! I’m posting this from the library, because for some reason whenever I try to get to your site from my computer, it says I can’t due to a virus. No problems here at the library though, so I thought I’d stop by to say hello! Hugs…RO

      I’m sorry you are having any issues. I have addressed this with my hosting company and they tell they can’t find anything, but you are not the first to tell me this. But I do appreciate you taking the time to stop by. {hugs}
