As a huge fan of Cristin Harber's Titan series, I was eager to get my hands on Rocco Savage's story. I have to say, I yet again completely devoured this book. From start to finish it was filled with suspense, strong characters and most of all Cristin Harber's magical writing talents.

Caterina Cruz has one mission in her life; search and destroy the terrorists who decimated her entire existence. She will stop at nothing until she gets her revenge. Since that unfortunate day in her youth, she has h

Shit got real in this book! Harber pulled no punches.

I LOVED Rocco. Absolutely! His inner thoughts were so funny at times. I liked Cat but thought she should have been a little better "trained". The events that took place in the book were gut wrenching. Just when you thought the hero would save the day...he did not. And the ending...yikes! Talk about rip your heart out! Luckily the epilogue was awesome.

Right from the start of this series Rocco has been a favourite of mine (well they are all favourites but Rocco has that extra little bit of twinkle if you know what I mean *waggles eyebrows*) and his story funnily enough turned out to be the hardest one to read, not because it wasn’t good or it was badly written because that is definitely not the case. Savage Secrets tells a story that brings out a variety of emotions including anger, rage and uneasiness and at times my ey
Rocco wanted justice...She wanted vengeance...

4.25+ RATING- I consider Cristin Harber my number one author find of 2013! Everything she has written, just completely works for me. She’s knows what I want from a story and delivers each and every time. That’s why I’m a little pissed at myself for picking up Savage Secrets months ago, putting it down, and not coming back to read it until now. I should have known better. I definitely should have known better!

Dear Cristin Harber....

My gracious woman, you can write a book! This is another fantastic addition to the Titan group. Another one bites the dust, as Roman would say!

Caterina Cruz is on a mission to exact revenge on a man that murdered her entire family. Rocco Savage is the newly appointed second in command at Titan. He was injured in a previous mission and is now plagued with hallucinations that could threaten his position at Titan. While on a mission, Caterina and the Titan group cross paths.

Rocco and Cat! I loved this book, I think this one is my favorite one so far. Rocco had some issue from the previous mission they tackled on so his head is not in the game 100 percent. Cat bless her heart trying to get revenge on the man who killed her family and left her an orphan. The first half of the book it was great they were barley testing out the waters, I liked them together in there "fake marriage". Then BAM! the tragedy struck and it just broke my heart I was in tears. Cat is strong a ...more

This one completely and totally blew me away! Cristin just keep's finding new ways to blow shit up, this time she blew up my emotions! Rocco and Cat's story is so different from the others.
Cristin Harber, you crafty author you. I've read all of your books and enjoyed them but this one is my favorite so far. Everything clicked for me with this story. I loved all the characters, old and new alike. Loved the story and the pacing of it. I was never bored or felt like I had to force myself to read. Action packed from beginning to end.

Catarina Cruz is on a life’s mission to avenge the murders of her parents and brothers. She is so close and then one part of her plan falls apart. She must act quickly and call in a favor; never realizing the man who will help her avenge their deaths will be the one to complete her life.

Rocco is one Titan character I have loved since day one. His conviction to doing the right thing is admirable and his focus to make it happen incredible. Like all

Love the Titan guys and this book was no exception. While it was darker than the other books in the series, it still had some great LOL moments. Rocco and Cat were great together and perfect for each other.

The only reason that this isn't getting 5* is because of the editing mistakes. Unfortunately there were a few missing words in sentences and spelling/grammar mistakes such as "where's" was used instead of "wears", "the" instead of "that" and "damn" instead of "dammed". Small things and

Closer to 3.5 stars. I love this series but Savage Secrets felt kinda disjointed to me, and there were a TON of editing errors. The story was good though, action packed, sexy, devastating & healing.

Warning: Graphic & horrifying rape scene. It was tough to read but I appreciated the seriousness that Ms. Harber took in dealing with the aftermath.

What... what did I just read?! Oh, God, Cristin Harber, can your writing be any more perfect?!

Rocco Savage, now acting as the new second-in-command for the Titan group, accepts a solo mission after being specifically requested by Caterina Cruz, to take out one of the world's most famous terrorists.

It shouldn't be a big surprise that I've read all the books in the Titan Series and each one gets better than the last. This was no exception. Just like the other books in this series, you have your bad-ass alpha male hero and you have your bad-ass heroine. That is what sets this series apart from the rest and I love it.

The second my eyes hit the prologue, it had me. I was in tears before I even got to Chapter 1. Seriously, what kind of book does that? An awesome one!.

Ever since I started the Titan series, I have been blown away with Cristin Harber and her ability to write an amazing romance series that his action and suspense.

This is an ARC Review.

This one threw me for a loop. I had expectations for this book - uber alpha character (most of the male characters in this series have been a smidge over the top), good action, a bit of drama, with a dash of emotion. The story starts that way. Rocco Savage is the new second-in-command at Titan. He is working with a world-class interrogator to bring down a terrorist group. They are posing as an arms dealing couple. Things heat up, buildings go boom, and then our couple goes

Gut wrenching, exciting, sexy.
Not going to lie, this was probably the hardest book in the series for me to get into but once I started going I was hooked until the end.
I was a little put off because I thought both Rocco and Jared acted out of character a couple of times. Rocco's decision to not share his physical condition put his entire team and op in danger and was very unprofessional.
No spoilers here but Jared did something that I thought was simultaneously good and horrible. Those two things

Let me just start with: this book is worth more than the 4 stars that I have clicked, the writing is as good as ever,the story line is fantastic- it's Cristin at her absolute best (I love these 2 characters almost as much as I love Jared - almost ;) ) However... the epilogue.
For that reason alone I reduced this books rating from the 5 star I was pitching it at all the way through to a 4 star when I arrived at the end of the last chapter and turned to Page one of the Epilogue.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the fourth book that I've read from Cristin Harber and they stay just as good as the first book! The storyline is exciting and pulls you in with the action from the very first page.There is tension, both from the action, and sexual from the two main characters towards one another. This helps fuel the storyline further and faster. When I read Cristin Harber's stuff, I know there will be plenty of explosions, both in bed and

I love this series and know that amongst the action and suspense, I'm going find a man to love, a feisty lady that can bring him to his knees and plenty of explosions, both in the bedroom and when fighting the bad guys.

Savage Secrets is all that. Rocco Savage is no stranger and after what happened to him in Chased I couldn't wait to see how his story evolved. As is the case with all the Titan men, he's alpha, but just the right amount and whilst he's not without his secrets, he is a protective g

Another great read in Titan Series! Rocco Savage is 2nd in command in the Titan Group. He's sent on a mission to "play husband" to the beautiful Caterina Cruz.

I really like this author and this series and I would have given this book more stars if certain elements in the book were removed. Caterina's rape and pregnancy. I understand that this is an extremely terrible act that occurs way to often and women can and do move on from it. I just don't want to read about it especially a graphic depiction when I am reading a romance book. I wish there would have been some type of disclaimer before I read it. I retread a lot of books and will reread t

WOW!! What can I say! This author does not disappoint!

For some reason this book seemed off to me in the beginning & I couldn't get into it. I got kind of bored with Rocco's acid like trips from his previous exposure...

BUT!! When it took off, I couldn't put it down! I love Cristin Harber's descriptions! They are very detailed, but not over the top bringing boredom. This author can write! I think the best part of her writing is that she spares no one. If it happens & it is a major part of the sto

Cristin Harber never fails to kick ass. I was pleasantly excited for Rocco. Ms. Harber KICKED MY ASS with this book. Total book hangover. Came out of nowhere, kicked my ass up and down, I tell you. In fact, I ended up messaging Ms. Harber and informing her of my intention to drink some alcohol. True story.

Another great Titan book. I stayed up way to late reading. I do so love me some Titan boys, oh my. And Cat would make a great addition to the team just like Nic. Man, the bad guy in this book was one sick dude, just creepy.

Now enough hints and sneaks, how long to we have to wait for Roman and Beth's story. Just the teaser of the title is not enough.
