REVIEW – ROYAL SAVAGE (Savage and Ink, #1) by Victoria Ashley



I CAN’T CLOSE MY EYES… I refuse to. Every time I do, all I see is blood, death, and pain. I can feel it – almost taste it, bringing me back to that night.
It doesn’t matter that I’m still breathing; I no longer need it, I no longer want it. I despise it along with everything else around me.
The only thing I long for is to fucking fade away. I’ve given up. Until her at least…


She comes into my world, knocking me on my ass.
It turns me on to have her around me. Makes me want to wrap my hand around her tight little throat and fuck her until she feels my pain, feels the monster in me, but also makes me want to protect her from the very thing that she should be afraid of… me.
Once she sees the damage that I’m capable of; she’ll look at me like everyone else around me does: with fear.

Avalon Knight
HIS EYES… THE DARKNESS IN them draws me to him, making me want to taste him, feel him… and save him. I shouldn’t have gotten on the back of his motorcycle that day. I know that now. Colton warned me. I was told it was dangerous. I was told that nothing would be the same. He was right.
ROYAL is dangerous, dark, and seductive; the very thing that keeps me hanging on, willing to give my last breath just to touch him… breathe him in.

He’s savage, inked, and highly captivating. So different from his brother…
He’s hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing that I crave. I want to free him. I want to change his mind, but I’m afraid that he’s already too faded…

Avalon Knight is a 22 yr. old woman working at a salon called Stylin’, and dating a guy that she’s absolutely bored with. She heads out one evening with her best friend Madison, & crosses paths with a dark, sinfully gorgeous, tattooed man named Royal Savage. Royal is mysterious & just screams bad boy. He isn’t Avalon’s usual type, but she’s immediately drawn to this sexy man. He seems dirty & rough and like everything exciting she’s been missing in her life. As they spend time together they have a hard time denying they crave one another & finally give in.


-Royal Savage…He’s hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing I crave.

-She’s my calm after the storm. She’s like a poison to my heart, slowly leaking her way inside and killing me in the worst way possible. She’s the salvation that I seek but know that I can’t keep forever, and that’s what scares me.


Royal Savage is a troubled man who suffered a tragic loss two years ago. He is still haunted in his dreams & has given up on life. He tries to avoid most people other than his two best friends. He owns a tattoo parlor/bar called Savage & Ink. He keeps busy at his business & planning his revenge on the person he blames for the pain that consumes his life. He doesn’t plan on having feelings for Avalon. He hasn’t let himself feel in so long, so his feelings for her rock him to the core. Suddenly all he can think of is Avalon & keeping her safe. Royal continues to struggle with his demons, but we get some beautiful moments, & some seriously smoking hot sex scenes. I really enjoyed this book & would love books for Jax, Blaine, & Mark too! 😀


-“I’ve heard shit about men with beards. I know they’re orgasm donors and you definitely needed a donation.” (Madison to Avalon) Lol, loved that quote! ;))
