I am seriously stunned! I didn't know what expect when I started reading Savage, but let me tell you S L Scott has blown me away. This book is so different to anything I have read from her but Savage is one of her very best works that I have had the pleasure of reading.
This story is passionate, captivating, devastating, thrilling. It will have you an the edge of seat leaving you shocked and breathless.
Alexander and Sara Jane have a love story like no other. Their love is all consuming, dark and so strong that neither of them can leave the other. Their lives so entwined that one without the other is not an option. Alexander has secrets, very large secrets that he keeps to protect the one he loves. Sara Jane has a beauty of innocence, but over time she has become stronger and pushes Alexander to reveal his secrets so that they can become one together and fight the demons lurking that could ultimately distroy them. Their love is strong but is it enough to survive the danger that lies ahead.
This book will have your heart pounding, the twists and turns will have you head spinning and through it all you will be consumed by a story that is so fulfilling and captivating that you will be left speechless like I was. S L Scott has delivered one of the best books I have read and I can't wait for Savior, the epic conclusion to this enthralling duet. Suzie congratulations!
You know it's going to be a great story when you are enthralled from the very first page. The story of Sara Jane and Alexander is beautifully written, with great character development and quite a few surprising twists. Intense. Riveting. Heart wrenching. This is book one of a duet. Be warned; this book ends with a major cliff hanger and you will be left with more questions than answers! Fortunately, book two is due to be released in early August. I am enthusiastically waiting for the sequel!
There is an incredible blending of light and dark in this journey. Alexander King has seen and experienced so much darkness by the age of 19 then he sees the brightest light ever, Sara Jane. From the opening pages, S.L. Scott pulls you into this tragically beautiful romance. Sara Jane and Alexander light each other up and while their romance and relationship grows, Alexander keeps lots of secrets. Sara Jane has always known there is darkness in his world but she sees the true Alexander, the man inside that carries light and love. As Alexander digs deeper to uncover truths that he needs about his mother’s death, Sara Jane gets pulled in and he can no longer shield her from the darkness within his family. I was surprised more than once along this crazy ride but I couldn’t put it down. The story unfolds in a fabulous way being told in the present with perfectly blended memories from both characters as to how their relationship built and grew to get us today. Of course, there is a crazy cliff hanger at the end that has me on pins and needles, I really am not sure where this story will take us next but I’m loving every suspense-filled, sexy moment. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
As I'm sitting here thinking of what to write after this ending I feel like I can't explain how this book turned on me and I never ever expected this kind of outcome.
S L Scott has become one of my favourite authors that brings out the best of a heart rending book. King and Sara Jane from the moment they met to this I rooted for them all the way. No matter the turmoil that King faced I kept wishing for Sara Jane not to give up and to keep fighting but I have to say that S L Scott always leave me in limbo with her stories that will tug at your heartstrings and emotions.
So for me I highly recommend this book and it did take me not wanting to turn the last few pages but I had to.
4.5 stars for me. Wow!!!! Talk about an emotional roller coaster. This book was my first read from SL Scott but it definitely won't be my last.
Alexander and Sarah Jane. A complete mis-match that works so well. Innocence and Experience. Sweetness and Darkness. Naivety and worldliness. None of the differences matter when you love each other like they do. An epic love story.
“She’s not some girl. She’s my girl.”
Major cliffhanger had me slamming my IPad on my lap screaming Noooo!!! Cannot wait for book 2 in August.
I was given a ARC for an honest Review. Savage is added to the list of one of my top favourite book....absolutely loved every moment of reading this book. This book is one of the books that once you pick it up, you wont put it down till your finished. I started this arc this morning, and i have not been able to put it down. In the midst of school holidays, kids nagging me and "having" to clean the house, i haven't been able to do anything, but continue to know whats going to happen. Having to put my kindle down for a small amount of time has me yearning to go back to continue on my journey with Alexander and Sarah Jane. This book has it all from emotion, angst, love and mystery combined in one. I'm on tender hooks waiting for the next book to be released!!! Well Done S.L Scott
This book had my stomach in knots and my heart pounding. It made me angry, sad and hopeful. I was happy that Alexander found Sara Jane. That she was his light in all the darkness going on in his world. The ending of this book gutted me. I can't wait to read the next book and see where the story goes.
What a heart wrenching story!!! This book captured me with the first page and never let go to the last page! This story is full of enigmas and secrets and is told with lots of flashbacks which is holding up the tension on a high level because only small puzzle pieces are revealed one at a time! Sara Jane loves Alexander with all her heart and soul not knowing what she is in for with him and also not knowing if she can handle all his secrets. Alexander loves her although knowing he should keep his distance to protect her from his dark secrets and nor to destroy her heart and soul. Their situation is so twisted, their lives so complicated that you are hurting for them while reading their story! This is one of the most emotional books I have read so far and I am sure I won’t forget it for a very long time and not only because this book ends with the worst cliff hanger ever!
