REVIEW – SAVAGE by L.A. Fiore

SYNOPSIS

They call him a monster.

Pale blue eyes as cold as ice that see right through you.

He’s hard.

He’s damaged.

He’s dangerous.

He lives in a castle fit for a fairy tale, but he’s no prince.

He’s savage.

He’s brutal.

He’s a killer.

By an act of fate, our worlds collide.

They call him a monster, but he is my salvation.

”There’s a beast inside me. It’s part of who I am…the savage part of my nature that allows me to do all the things I’ve done. Being with you has calmed those impulses, but it will come out from time to time. It’s inevitable.” 

 

 

 

It’s been several years since I’ve read anything by L.A. Fiore and after having finished SAVAGE, I know I won’t be waiting that long to read her next book. She is going on my automatic must-read list! This story felt like a dark fantasy even though there really aren’t any supernatural beings in it. I loved the way the author’s writing paints a beautiful picture of the landscape of Scotland, it added to the dark and yet wildly romantic ambiance.

Lizzie Danton is a well-known and hugely successful artist. Her life would seem glamorous to most on the outside looking in, but she grew up in the most horrible of circumstances. Her mother was a conniving and despicable woman who only ever showed Lizzie cruelty and mentally abused her at every turn. When her father left them both, Lizzie’s mother dropped her off at a boarding school and pretty much abandoned her from then on. At the boarding school, she suffered even more at the hands of an abusive headmistress and another student who took great pleasure in bullying poor Lizzie whenever she had the chance. Fast forward to present day, Lizzie finds out that a woman she never knew existed, her great aunt, Brianna, has left her beautiful cottage and the acreage of land it sits on to Lizzie in her will. At first, she is hesitant to go to Scotland because of the connection to her mother but something inside her has her determined to learn more about her deceased Aunt.

As soon as Lizzie arrives in Scotland, she feels a sense of belonging. For the first time she feels like she has a place to call home, and when she meets her Aunt’s husband she quickly learns that she had a heart of pure gold and it brings some peace to Lizzie. While she goes about touring the town her Aunt called home, she runs into a handsome but seemingly dangerous man who is feared by most of the townsfolk. But Lizzie isn’t scared in the least as she doesn’t believe in gossip and is one to form her own opinions instead of being influenced by others.

 

 

Brochan McIntyre isn’t the most law-abiding citizen and he pretty much keeps to himself in his lush and expansive castle. What he has chosen as his profession would make him out to be a monster to most people but once you learn of the sad and horrifying life he was born into, you can’t help but feel your heart break for him. Brochan’s mother died during childbirth and instead of showering him with unconditional love, his demented father acted with nothing but pure hatred towards him. There were adults in his life that loved him unconditionally and did what they could to protect Brochan from his father’s wrath over the years but the damage had been done and it turned him into a cold and detached killer.

As soon as Lizzie and Brochan meet, you can feel that sizzling chemistry they share. Brochan has never felt anything for a women before but something about Lizzie pulls him to her like a moth to a flame. She is the first person to truly see him because she is a kindred spirit. Once the romance takes off between them the story gets incredibly steamy but there is always danger lurking behind every corner as the two seem to have countless enemies who mean to destroy any happiness they have a shot at.

Will their pasts continue to haunt them? Is it possible for Lizzie and Brochan to live ”happily ever after” when there are so many people out there who want to see them fail?

Here are my overall ratings on the book:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5b>
Plot: 4.5
Angst:3
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
