The second book in the Savage Trilogy…
My name is Rick Savage but they call me Savage for a reason. But savage that I am, there is only one woman who can tame the beast in me, one woman who sees the real man. I loved Candace. I lost Candace. Now my enemies have targeted her. For this, they will not survive. I’m back home to save her and win her back, no matter what the cost.
I still stand by my statement that there is way more to this storythan meets the eye and I am still very captivated with what is happening, has happened and will happen, but this particular chunk of story moved waaaay slower than I expected. It’s not a bad mark of the story itself, but the author could have condensed/sped this part up quite a bit and still delivered the plot points that we got. In my opinion that is …. And on that note, I have to tell you something …. Wait for it …. Just kidding lol I can’t say anything *insert evil laugh* just kidding again LOL
Here’s something I can say … Savage Burn may not progress the journey of Candace and Ravage very far, but it does give us a huge perspective into Savage himself. The who/why of him is what the focus of this leg of the journey really is. There’s a bit too much of the whole one step forward two steps back thing for my taste right now and the push/pull between Candace and Savage was a bit much but they burned up my kindle with their chemistry just the same!
So, I’m still intrigued, but not as hipped up as I was when I read Savage Hunger. I’m feeling this could have easily been a duet, but maybe not *shrug* We shall see when the author gives us the final leg in their journey with Savage Love!! Stay tuned …..
“I stayed away for a reason. I knew if I ever touched you again, I’d want all of you. I’d want to own you and I wouldn’t give a shit about the price. So, yes, I’m going to spank you.”
“You think me submitting during sex means you own me?” she challenges.
“One night at a time, baby.”
“One night at a time, until you ruin me?”
“And then some,” I assure her. “There’s no saving you now.” Just to be sure she’s clear on that fact, I scoop her up and start walking.
She doesn’t object. She holds onto me. I want to believe she’ll hold on forever, but I’m not sure we’re there yet. Who am I kidding? I know we’re not fucking there yet, which is why we’re not doing this in the kitchen. This isn’t about sex. It’s about us, it’s about our relationship, our connection, the intimacy we have shared, the past come back to life. That means our bedroom.
The place we started and ended days together. The place we talked for hours. The place where we did naughty, kinky things to each other. Okay, I did naughty, kinky things to her more than she did to me. But it was here where the most intense moments were shared.
Once there, I find a small lamp by her bedside alight, casting the room in a dim yellow hue, shadows dancing on the walls with our movements. Shadows that taunt me with everything I’ve hidden from Candace and can no longer hide if I want to make this work. And I do.
I set her down on the floor in front of the mattress, her back to my front. My hand is on her belly, my erection at her hip. My lips at her ear. “Do you think you’re ready to trust me again?”
Her hand goes to my hand as if she’s trying to control where it goes, to hold it there, and yet, she leans into me. “We’ll find out now, won’t we?”
