It’s not easy to concentrate on writing a review when your emotions are still tied up in the characters; Where are they now? Are they okay? What does their future hold? I know it seems like I’m asking questions reserved for people that are actually of the living, and yes, I do realize I just read a BOOK. However, here’s the thing. I love these characters so much they ARE REAL to me. The emotion I feel for Sara Jane, Alexander, Chase, Cruise, and Shelly are genuine, raw and consuming.

I was given a ARC for an honest Review. This book is one once you pick it up you wont put it down till your finished.

In a world where secrets and lies are what keep you safe. Would you want to be left in the dark? Or would you want to be let into a dangerous world where nothing is what it seems? Darkness maybe what keeps you safe at the end of the day. But is it worth it when the one you love isn't there with you. Would you want to be let in on the secrets of it means taking it on with the one

You know you read a good book when you stayed up way too late coz you can't keep your eyes off of the book. There were moments so unique, romantic and touching that I skipped back a few pages just to read them again. And when I reached the end of the book I just close my eyes *sigh* and say "I need more".

The story got a bit better as it went on but I couldn't get past the first 30% or so that just had my head falling off. I can't even remember the characters names at this point. the girl was one of the most gullible characters I've met "do you even love me?" and his character was just as bad "leave me, am so bad" "no no! I'll never let you leave me, you are mine!" (insert Christian Grey voice) "just leave-im a bad guy" and every chapter he went on about this secret and if she knew she would sure ...more

If I could give this more than 5 stars,I would. This book had me from the first page. It's addictive and suspenseful. I love Alexander and Sara Jane. They have this intense rare connection,and i can't get enough of them. My heart is pieces. I'm dying to know what happens. One of the best books I've read this year! loved it!!

what an amazing book. I couldn't put it down it was so exiting from the start till the end. Such a strong and beautiful love between Alexander and Sara Jane. The book was so sad at times and it was also romantic and sweet. And talk about the end and don't think I can wait that long to find out what is happening.

My goodness I felt my palpitations all the way to that last line in this book and I am still not knowing what to do with myself. This was my first book by S.L. Scott and I loved it so much. First, of all I just loved the passion and love the main characters, Alexander and Sara Jane have for each other. I love to read romance and this is what romance is for me. Two people who simply can't be without each other. They complete each other. But is love enough? Ha! Thi

I really hate shelf ting book under DNF. Especiall toward the end of the year where everything is being summarized. But I really give up in this book. The writing style reminds me of A.L. Jackson. The writing is full of dramatic effect and not revealing the twist/ the plot at the beginning. Yes I do understand the author might want to build the suspense so we all have to read the book until the very end. But I do not have patience.

Alexander and Sarah Jane's story had my anxiety levels through the roof, you know the type of book I mean the one where there are secrets at every turn, where lives will be changed forever in the blink of an eye and when you are just waiting for the world to just drop from beneath your feet.

I was so eager to read this book. I saw that the ratings were quite high, and it sounded like something I would love. Unfortunately, my biggest disappointment with this read was the fact that it was sooooo slow. Now, I don't know if this is the case of "it's me and not you"; or if it really was slow going...but I had a hard time with how slow it was right up until about 70-ish %! Then it began to pick up, and lead me right smack into a cliffy! Thank goodness the next book is out because after a ...more

The first book I ever read by S.L. Scott was Naturally Charlie and I fell in love with her writing...but Ms Scott, you have outdone yourself with Savage.

The chemistry and passion between Alexander (King) and Sara Jane from the first chapter had me preparing myself mentally and emotionally because I realized this would be one of those stories that would have me loving and screaming at the same time.

1.5 Stars. I didn’t like this one. I didn’t like anything about this book. The audio was slow and the characters were unlikeable for different reasons. First, you have. Girls with convictions and ethical standards slowly rationalizing their morals away neucase they want to save the gangsta. Then you have the mobster who is a monster to everyone except for his girl...but is that really possible?

Or even days later thinking about it makes you cry because it was just that good? This is that book.

I can barely get my head together enough to write a review. This will have to be short lest I scream the whole story and ruin it for other readers

Review to come:

I can sum Savage by S. L. Scott in 2 words: LOVED IT! This book had a lot of the elements I love to read. Romance, angst, suspense, and it had a lot of heart.

"There is no life without you, Firefly."

The writing was just what I have been craving, it sucked me at the turn of the first page. Sara Jane is a young but very likable heroine, Alexander is a dark/brooding hero with too many secrets and hiding too much pain for such a man.

I've drafted this review no less than four times. I have no words to desribe how Savage has touched me. I will start by saying this is SL Scott's best work to date. Every single word is like a brick building a house. A house of cards.

Alexander and Sara Jane's love story is not one of roses and sunshine. It is not a love that is easy nor is a love that is simple. Neither are Alexander and Sara Jane. Individually, they are complex and intriguing. Together, they are combustible.

I was given an advanced reader copy and boy am I thankful. This book is seriously amazing. It beautifully balances the love between a man who is known as King, and the woman he wants to be his Queen --even when he relishes just being Alexander in her eyes. Call it fate, but but the moment Alexander sees Sarah Jane his world will never be the same. Sarah Jane felt the same way as she describes, "Feeling like the little girl once again, I’ve fallen for blue-sky eyes and a smile so bright I swear t ...more

This is a really good story full of angst, heat, sweet emotions, deception, mystery and most of all love. It moves at a fast pace and keeps you in suspense from beginning to the end. I don’’t want to give away any of the content of the story because you really should read it for yourself and it wouldn’t be fair to the author. During the story we see the main characters evolve in every facet, especially the heroine. The characters are complex and so interesting. At one point I was literally pausi ...more

Always interested in the arts, S.L. Scott grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiled her days away lost in a good book and the movies.

With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the world
