She was everything, yet she was nothing.
She was there, then she wasn’t.
I didn’t expect her, never wanted her.
But there she was, everywhere yet nowhere.
She drew me in with her looks. Locked me with her first words, then stole me with her lust.
She was everything I didn’t know I was searching for, yet nothing I needed.
She was a conundrum, difficult and confusing.

** Review by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **

Every time you pick up a novel by T.L. Smith you know one thing is for sure....You are always guaranteed twisted.

And that is exactly what she delivered.

We are reunited with the dark and dangerous Connick, the delusion Derrick, and the fragile and broken Malinka.
A love triangle of sorts, both Connick and Derrick will fight to have the one woman that they are both obsessed with. The one wo

What an emotional charged book....
T.L Smith has perfected the art of ripping your heart out with her psychologically thrilling stories.
Just when you think Connick and Milanka will FINALLY make their way to one another, terror rears it's ugly head once again and turns their worlds upside down.
Words can't express the emotional state I was in throughout the ENTIRE book. This story teaches us that we all have darkness inside of us, and we will the luckiest people if we find that ONE to accept it

This book, this fucking book! And this lady, who made it all happen! I totally lost my shit when this book showed up on my kindle, and I think I’m still in a slight shock.


Holy Baby Batman, it was a brilliant ride! I don’t even know where my head is right now. Milanka and Connick is a couple you can’t forget easily. Roger that – you can never forget them. I totally let them into my life and they’ve decided on staying with me forever. Oh, poor me.

About the story. T.L. Smith is a brilliant mind wit

When you pick up a TL Smith book you never know what to expect, you know it's going to be good, but you just don't know what her beautiful mind is going to give you.

Savage Reckoning was not what I expected. I never expected TL Smith to come up with this kind of love story, and I loved it! I rushed to the end and then I just wanted more!

Connick and Milanka's story grabs you from the very first paragraph. I was hooked from the first sentence in book one right up to the last sentence of book 2.

I am such an emotional wreck after reading this book. I was taken apart and put back together.
It was an amazing journey and I love Connick more than ever. TL Smith wrote the heck out of this series.

Savage Reckoning by T.L. Smith is the second installment in the Savage Love Duet.
Savage Reckoning is not a stand alone. Please read book one, Savage Collision, first.
I was hoping that Connick and Milanka now would get their HEA. But no, that would be too easy.
This book is full of unexpected twists and turns. And I loved every single one.
I read this book in one sitting, I couldnt put it down.
I recommend this book and the duet and I give 5 stars, thank you TL Smith !

You know that feeling you get when you know something is headed your way that will blow your mind, render you speechless and change the way you feel about reading forever. The feeling of a pleasure so intense, it is breathtaking. The feeling so overpowering, you find yourself thinking about the book you just read, with a sense of fulfilment and contentment unlike any other. Well, that is how I felt after reading Savage Reckoning. I wanted to hang onto this feeling forever. I thought the book wou ...more

I think I am on a bloody roll with how fast I have read this series. Fuck me sideways this series was the bomb. I loved this dark, twisted, confusing, hot and sexy book wholeheartedly. Let me just tell you this book is a complete mindfuck and be ready to be blown away.

You should know that this is the second book in the duet so you need to read the first one before starting. When I started this series I didn't know what to expect and this author has outdone herself and has delivered a kickass bo

When you can't put a book down due to complete awe....

That's exactly how I was after Savage Collision I wanted more and now thankfully we have the conclusion in Savage Reckoning.

The plot picks up exactly were it left off.

Complex Character's with many layers, a plot with many layers and with each page turned more is pealed away, more revealed, more is unfolded in TL Smith's unique style.

A gripping and mind boggling plot with twists and turns.

Malinka, after battling with her demons and losing the war, has come to terms with who she is and what she needs to feel complete but Connick is a few paces behind...can he catch up?

Omg I needed this book badly after reading Savage Collision! In this book we get to see inside the head of Connick and Milanka as well as the past between Derrick and Connick. Just like with the last book I can't go into too many details without ruining the experience. I did love that we were shown how and why Connick was involved with Derrick and Milanka did grow from all the tragedy she experienced. I didn't want it to en

I literally couldn't put this book down!

TL Smith has done it again with this twisted conclusion to an amazing story.

Malinka confesses her love for Connick however he totally spoils things between them..again! Derrick is still hovering with his psycho personality and we get to know Harlin, a very complex but loveable character.

I am in awe of this author's amazing ability to create such diverse storylines, all intriguing and extremely entertaining. Her descriptions of characters, settings and mood

"To love someone is to sacrifice your beliefs."

"Even with our sins, even with my demons... I will love him. As he will love me. Because that's what love is about. The unexpected."

After the cliffhanger ending of the first book, this second installment was highly anticipated.

Savage Reckoning picks right up where Savage Collision (SC) left us hanging, demanding more. But it also goes further, or should I say it also goes back? The story around Connick and Milanka unfolds itself while playing in the

The perfect complimentary partner to book one in the series, Savage Reckoning will have you flipping madly through the pages to discover all the secrets from book one, Savage Collision.

With book one leaving us on a cliffy, T.L, the true master mind she is, picked up right where we left off. Tensions, drama, deception and secrets will pave the way for brilliant read.

Conick and Malinka are still tormented by eachothers untruths. Derrick still as delusional as he was in the first installment, mix

The epic conclusion of this highly addictive and gripping story has finally come to an end. T. L. Smith never seizes amaze me with her flawless writing and riveting storylines.

Wow! What an ending to this dark and suspenseful duet.

First let me say that I absolutely love Connick. I loved reading chapters from his pov. You get to know Connick so much better as a character and he definitely comes a long way from the man he was in Savage Collision. I think this story may have been a little slower than the first and not as suspenseful because Derrick isn't really around as much as he was in the first book. His stalker tendencies almost disappear. But when he comes back, its

This book picks up from where Savage Collision ends and it's full of intense, emotionally charged scenes. I love the characters in this book, even the ones I hate. The complexity of not just Malinda but Derrick and Connick aswell makes this book addictive. I needed to delve into their heads to get my answers and I loved every single minute of it.

Milanka has been through so much already and she's finally determined to put herself first. With the connection between Derrick and Connick

I just finished Savage Reckoning and I'm lost.
This series was such a fabulous read. I waited for this book and it did not disappoint me I hung on every word and did not want it to end. Like all of T.L. Smith's books before it, Reckoning has something so beautifully Dark and heartfelt to it. It will touch you in your soul.

Her books touch you, they suck you in till you realise you are holding your breath waiting on the next page. These characters Connick and Milanka are no different they are e

This book was amazing. Connick and Milanka's relationship is unique and unconventional but that is what makes their love story so beautiful. Neither one believes that they want love or a relationship. But they have both gotten under each other's skin and now they can barely get through a day without the other one there.

Milanka gets upset because Connick keeps things from her but in the end she realizes that he was doing that because he didn't want to cause her any more pain. One of my favorite p

After reading Savage Collision, T.L. Smith left me with unbearable angst. I literally couldn't sleep with so many thoughts and possibilities running through my mind with wonder in what Savage Reckoning would bring and let me tell you. She did NOT disappoint. This was the perfect conclusion to The Savage Love Duet and I'll be dealing with one heck of a book hangover for quite awhile. **HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**

Well, I don't think I liked this one as much as the first. So much back and forth with Connick. Him still figuring out how to pull his head out of his ass, but still being super protective of Milanka. And Derrick continuing to be a psycho. But once Derrick was out of the picture, I didn't get (a)(view spoiler) and (b)(view spoiler) ...more

I really enjoyed this book better than the previous one. I'm not sure if it was that I was more invested in the characters and wanted to know how everything turned out or if this story was less choppy.

Milanka and Connick are obviously in love with each other but are having a hard time admitting it because both of them have such rocky pasts. They have a hard time leaning on other people and admitting they need anyone else in their lives. They have to learn to not only trust each other but trust

Savage Reckoning is a brilliant read! It starts exactly where Savage Collision ended with an unpredicted situation. It’s really easy to be captivated by the story from the first lines with all the action. I like the introduction of Connick’s point of view in this second book. It helped understand him better. In book one he was a complete mystery and his intentions toward Milanka were hard to trust fully. The connection between them is more palpable than ever, because it’s more than just physical ...more

Cracking read

What a follow up. I really enjoyed this, however it left a massive amount of loose ends Nicole, his father etc.
Really good characters but I think it's best told from her point of view and perspective.
She was so beaten and abused but so strong and a survivor.
There are so many things I wanted to be investigated, her relationship with her father, it needs another book.
The female lead was a beautifully written character and I rooted for her. The romance was a side story, it was how she

Savage Reckoning gave us the PERFECT ending to this duet!!!
This series was such a FANTABULOUS duet! I couldn't wait for Savage Reckoning after I finished Savage Collision! And I soooo wasn't disappointed!!!
I hung on every word that TL threw at us. The love story of Connick and Milanka isn't for the faint of heart, and definitely won't come easy. Just like all of Mrs, Smith's books Savage Reckoning has a beautifully written dark side, but is so very heartfelt.

Holy crap what an ending!! This duet had me on my toes the whole entire time. T.L. Smith does such a great job with the dark and twisted books that I shouldn't be surprised by how great this duet was. There were so many times that I thought I just knew how it was going to play out but I was shocked just as many times because you can't predict where T.L. is going to take her books.

If you haven't read this series before then you have to read the first in order to enjoy or know what is going on in
