I have read many of Ms. Lyons books and enjoyed them, this one included. It is a story of a young man Justice, who with his band mates are in a rock competition and are on their way up. They meet a young college student who is to be their publicist Liza and of course there is a instant connection between the two.
Liza has a past, a very terrible one she is trying to leave behind. She trusts no one and has many triggers that cause her to panic. She finds trust and safety with Justice to the point

Sooooo. First off. I'm Jen's assistant. But she didn't know I was planning on reading Savaged Dreams. I kinda just...did. Yes. I sneaky read it. lol

And I enjoyed it quite a bit. Sexy rockstars, a fiery-fierce heroine, the drama of an up and coming rock band. It was an exciting read and had me pretty glued to my e-reader all weekend.

Oh my god. I could NOT put this down. Good thing my husband cooked dinner or we never would've eaten. Forgot my own work. Ignored the TV show I'd turned on. Skipped cigarette breaks. I even passed on dessert, for petesakes. And it ended on a cliffhanger which made me want to scream until I realized the first chapter of the next book was included, so I inhaled that, too, and felt better. A little. Now I have to wait until next month for the next book. Gah.

Read it now. It's worth it. Seriously. So

OMG!  I have been waiting for a new rock star romance to release that would WOW me like some of the earlier rock star romance series a few years ago.  It seems like so many authors jumped on the rock star bandwagon and the stories began to become predictable cookie cutter romances with the same tortured rock star theme.  I wanted something fresh with intriguing band members that were not your run of the mill manwhore, bad boy musicians with tortured pasts meeting naive innocent women who won the

Jennifer Lyon hits it out of the park once again! She has such a talent for immersing you into her characters feelings, hopes and dreams. I'm not a big fan of rock star romance but I am a fan of hurting souls healed by love. This book trilogy/serial has that in spades. But beware readers, this is not the end of their story and it ends way too soon. You will be salivating for the next installment of this addicting story which will be arriving very soon.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, 

This is part one of a trilogy, and has quite a dramatic ending but books tow and three are scheduled for July and September this year so not too long to wait ;-)
I can live with that, its waiting a year of more that I hate! Forgotten half the story by then, and lost the impetus that kept me reading. a few months means its still reasonably fresh.
I'd still like trilogies like this to be all three parts out simulta

Savaged Dreams is one of the best rockstar romances I've read to date. It's the story of a young band in the making, Savaged Illusions, who are trying to win a rock reality show competition called Court of Rock. Justice Cade is the band's lead singer. When he meets the band's new college student publicist, Liza Glasner, sparks are flying all over the place. Especially because he and the band have accused her of being "a sorority girl whose only experience at promotion is taking selfies." "Or a ...more

Wowzers. This book. This book. This book. I'm not sure what I was expecting when I picked up Savaged Dreams, I've always been a huge Jennifer Lyon fan, but good grief, she outdid herself with this book! Liza and Justice = mega swoon alert. These two have just about every obstacle in their way, but somehow they could not be more right for one another. They're the epitome of "it's so wrong, it's right". From Justice's devoted attention to Liza, to Liza's ability to ground Justice when no one else ...more

Humor, suspense and heartbreak

The first book in a planned trilogy, there's some crossover with the author's Plus One series (this book is actually earlier in the shared timeline than the original series) but you don't need to have read those books to enjoy this one.

Justice and Liza are both smart and talented, both driven by pain from their pasts, but they have very different goals. Justice needs to succeed in his quest to become a star both to prove himself and because he owes it to his band ma

Jennifer Lyon has created beautifully flawed characters in her new series Savaged Illusions. In Savaged Dreams, we first meet the band Savaged Illusions. They're in the final stages of trying to win a record contract on a reality TV show. From the moment Lyon introduces you to the band, you can feel their bond. They are more like a band of brothers.

Enter Liza. She just walked into a staged situation, and handled it like a pro. Her personality is front and center. She spent the last 6 or 7 years

I will NEVER get enough of Jennifer Lyon's books. And this new trilogy is freaking AWESOME! I freaking L-O-V-E-D Savaged Dreams. I am not bothered at all by the cliff hanger. In fact I really REALLY liked how it ended. I feel anxious to get the next one to find out what will happen next. It makes me edgy...its a great feeling for a good story because it makes the book THAT much more filling. I fell in love with Liza and Justice from the start. The Rock-Star dyna

“You’re not that girl. I don’t know exactly what you are yet, but you matter.” That is my favorite line in the whole book. This book is an emotional roller coaster, in the best way. The relationship between Liza and Justice is stormy, passionate and laced with trial. Liza is so caught up in not becoming her mom, she has a hard time seeing what is right in front of her. And Justice speaks volumes in the way he is trying to keep his promise to his grandmother, his devotion is unwavering. Being wit ...more

This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster. We get real characters with real life issues. Liza was victimized at a young age. The perpetrator, the media and her family let her down. She had to bottle up all her emotions to try to survive. Justice feels like he is not worthy. His mother left and his father would rather be homeless than live with him. Liza's character makes you want to stand by her and fight for and with her. Justice just made want to

There are only a hand full of authors I would read a trilogy from without all 3 books released because I hate cliff hangers but Jennifer Lyon is one of them.

Book one, of this amazing trilogy, introduces us to the band of non blood related brothers who call themselves, Savaged Illusions, who are competing for a contract/record deal to be the next big thing through a reality TV show. Each band is given an intern to help promote them and Liza Glasner is not only theirs but also the woman Justice Ca

So good! I loved this. The characters all have really big issues and seeing them come out is thrilling.

Liza is a college student who gets a shot as a publicist for a band on a TV show competition. Justice is the lead singer of the band she works with. They start out on a rocky footing but come together quiet fast. Liza has a secret that Justice learns and he honors her wishes and keeps it to himself. He has demons of his own.

Justice's dad is suffering from PTSD and is out on the streets refusing

I fell completely under the thrall of this book. Justice isn't your typical rock star which I appreciated. I was a little afraid when starting this book because I kind of expected the bad boy player type of rockstar. Justice had a lot of heart. His band was pretty great too. Liza is such a strong character. I loved seeing her fight back her demons. I absolutely adored them together. They connection between them just arcs right off the page like lightning.

First things first. I'm not a huge reader of "New Adult" books. I am, however, a huge reader of Jennifer Lyon. I'm also not that into rock star books and reality TV shows are not my catnip, but I have to admit, Jen dragged me kicking and screaming into this one. Flawed characters, a depth of emotion and all sorts of twisty-turns kept me swiping pages. The reality show/contest and the rock band formats are genre-bending meld by creates a read that I couldn't put down. I had to process the whole e ...more

I can't say enough about this book. Simply amazing. Every page had you drawn in. I seriously couldn't put the book down! Justice and Liza had me on an emotional rollercoaster that I didn't want to get off. But the ending...oh my..... Jesus be a nerve. Simply amazing Jennifer. I hope the band members all get books after this series.

One of the most emotionally intense romances I've read in too long. If you love books that make you feel like you know all of the characters and don't want to end, get this book. The tension doesn't quit and Jennifer Lyons will keep you guessing what will happen next! I immediately pre-ordered book two.

I really enjoyed Savaged Dreams. I have been wanting to read a new Rock Star romance. It is a great start to a new series.

And Liza is trying not to become like her mom. I can't wait to see how it all ends up. The cliff hanger definitely left you hanging in that OMG moment. I wanted more. Definitely give it ...more

A phenomenal start to another great series by one of my favorite authors. Justice and his band are competing in a reality show that if they win will result in their getting the recording contract they so rightly deserve and desperately want. To keep them on the straight and narrow as they go into the finals Liza joins them as their PR person. Problem is, she's a college student who's trying to get her own internship.

The end of this book is probably what saved this book for me and pushed it to 3 stars vs. 2. That ending is also the reason I know that I will be looking for the next book so I can find out what happens to Liza and Justice.
I think the main reason I am not the biggest fan of this book is because I am never a fan of love at first sight. The type of love that automatically over looks all the flaws and problems. Lust at first sight I can understand. A WHAM BAM thank you ma'am can happen in an insta
