”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

descriptionI am going to start by saying this was a really pretty book. The little graphics before each chapter were a nice touch. That said it was also a really enjoyable book. The writing was fantastic. It had a bit of an atmospheric fairytale quality to it. The pace was OK. I found it maybe a smidge too long and slow at times. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. The mystery aspect was good, but I think it could have been a bit more fleshed out. Along with Brochan's profession. I loved

I've never read this author before, and I've enjoyed this read a lot!

Do you like tortured/damaged heroes? Then this one might be fore you. Definitely a dark read.

The beginning sucked me in right away and it was so heartbreaking that I definitely sobbed a bit.

Now, I did also fall asleep while listening to this audiobook somewhere around the half way mark lol. But it was a tiny tiny ... may be a 5 minute nap. :D

This book should really be titled The Awakening of Lizzie and Brochan. Seriously. Because these two people came to new realizations as the story unfolded. They both suffered traumatic childhoods that shaped them into the people they were and unfortunately, the pain they suffered left something broken in each of them. But they were classic. Perfect in their imperfection. And in my opinion, these two were absolutely perfect for each other.

Both characters grew up unhappy, unwanted, and unloved by t

First I just have to say that this cover is amazing! Those pale blue eyes are hypnotizing. I would buy this book just for that cover.

L.A. Fiore has such a gift of taking you to a new place and creating magic like no one else. I saw it in her book "Waiting for the One" when she took us to Maine and when she took us on a high sea adventure in "Elusive." She works that magic once again in "Savage" by taking us to beautiful Scotland.

This author never ceases to amaze me with her vivid storytelling and her ability to capture the essence of these one of a kind characters and this book was no different. It was unique, haunting, with just a touch a sexiness that will leave you wanting more.

Brochan isn’t your ordinary guy and to say that his childhood was rough, would be the biggest understatement of the year. He’s cruel because he has to be in order to maintain a level of distance in his world and expressing anything mo

One of my TOP READS of 2017! SAVAGE was absolute AMAZING in every single way! This is only the second book I’ve read by Ms. Fiore and I gotta say, she’s becoming a FAVORITE of mine, for sure! This beautifully crafted, ominous romance had my heart soaring from the very first page. Lizzie and Brochan are two of the most wonderfully complex characters I’ve ever come across and I fell for them INSTANTLY!

This story was so much fun to write. It's a contemporary romance with a suspense twist, but it has a dark fairy tale feel to it. Brochan (pronounced Brogan) is a loner who lives in a castle in Scotland. Lizzie is an artist who lives in New York City. Fate brings them together. The town calls him a monster, but he becomes Lizzie's salvation. Two damaged souls who find their own version of happily ever after. I love these two. ...more

The wording needs to be edited better. The wording that being used is not enough to build up the tension nor to highlight the story. it feels bit flat and 1 dimensional.

The idea of the story is promising. Hinting Beauty and the beast theme. And choosing Scotland as backdrop is good idea.

Hell, I don’t know why I have read it.
I just needed something different, I guess.


Well, the book is well-written and it is captivating. It flows and keeps your interest.

The connection between the hero and the heroine is good and there is no cheating etc. They have an amazing emotional and physical bond. The passionate scenes are all written very successfully.

The background to the story is also magnificent: Scotl

3.5 Modern Highlander Stars!

This was a bit different....Brochan McIntyre is a modern Highlander Laird with a twist, he’s also a dark broody hitman. Brochan is definitely a troubled soul, he was sorely mistreated and abused by his bitter, angry father who blamed Brochan for his mother’s death since she died during childbirth.

Because of the way he was treated by his father he naturally had anger management problems growing up. He eventually meets Mac (his “Hitman Mentor”) who teaches him

I absolutely LOVED Savage BUT...I couldn't understand a bloody word he said for the first few chapters. OK, I could understand a few words but that was only after I rewound it and listened to it again. Aaron Shedlock's voice is so bloody deep and his Scottish burr was so well done, that I'm convinced Mr Shedlock is Scottish...or he was possessed by a Scotsman while narrating this story. Turns out, all I needed to do was slow down my speed. This also helpe

I was intrigued by the blurb and thought, hey this kind of sounds like a fairy tale with some sexiness BUT this was beyond that!! The Prologue captured my full attention and I got lost in L.A. Fiore's mystical words!!

Despite what people thought about Brochan, I gradually fell in love with him because the monster everyone pictured him to be was just an outer appearance and not the TRUE Brochan!! Despite the childhood he had I knew that deep down he still had some goodness and beauty to share wit
Woot! Apparently I’m in the mood for crazy story like this lately 😬😝.

Our H and had tragic upbringing, they had been abused by the people who supposed to love them for years. A nasty ones 😫

When they were grownups, he end up as a hitman and she became an artist.

Plenty plot holes 😂 in this story, I know, I know 😂 but it suck me in and won’t stop listening until the end. So yeah I enjoyed it.

Oh, I listened the audiobook version, not too happy with the female narrator but the male narrator was ok!

Savage is a thrilling remake of the telling of Beauty and the Beast, of a story between a dark and mysterious stranger and a sweet and passionate young woman who has come to Scotland looking to connect with her past.

What a whopper of a romance and I have to say that this is one of the books I have read so far this year that made the bigeest impression on me. I LOVE Beauty and the Beast retellings and this is one of the best contemporary one

3.5 solid stars.

This was not the book I was expecting but it was an enjoyable journey.

The blurb read like this was a dark tale. In the "dark" literature category, this story read lighter than most and that may have to do with the author's style. She never really delves all that deeply into the events that broke her characters before they find each other. She goes in detail about what happened but I felt removed from those events even though the book is first person dual POV.

SAVAGE by L. A. Fiore is the story of Brochan and Lizzie.
Please make sure you understand that this is a Dark Romance and is not for everyone. I happen to like them and this was a really good one. I was happy to find this book.
Both Brochan and Elizabeth (Lizzie) started with a hard and sad life. Their lives never really got better I think until they meet. They both had so much to overcome from their past and present. But when these two halves come together this made into a great dark romance st

Enjoyed this book and the strong characters in it. With all they went though and to still be able to find love and some type of peace. I guess the witch knew what was going to happen and she probably knew about the evil parents as well. They were horrible people.

LA Fiore knows how to write! Gosh, her stories are sublime and so addicting. Savage was an absolutely breathtaking read. From start to finish, L.A. paints incredibly vivid pictures that make you feel like you're actually in the old castles on the rolling hills of Scotland. Once I started, it was hard to stop.

Savage starts out on a brutal way, it's devastating and sets a tone that flows throughout the book. That deep, intense beginning sets up for a beautiful, yet broken story of darkness, haunt

Every time I need to review a L.A. Fiore book, I can't find the right words.
English is not my first language, so I'm guessing all the above and so many more that I don't know of. Reading Savage was an absolute joy, a beautiful story about fighting the ugly through beauty. Finding the light in the darkness. Letting the monster become an angelic savior.

"Bent, not broken."

I'm a huge fan of this author's work. There's always at least one broken character and lots of twists and turns and surprises in her stories. I can't resist a broken bad boy, and even though several characters tell Brochan that he's just bent, not broken, I can see how he might disagree. But there's no denying that love has the power to heal, and in spite of the horrors he's faced there are still tiny cracks where light might find a way in. Not that he was willing, but

This is the first book I've read/listened to by LA Fiore and was so pleasantly surprised! I was hooked by the story right away, even though my heart completely broke at the start for our hero and heroine. This book was emotional and at times painful, but the author balanced it so well with humor and lighter moments. Brochan was the perfect damaged and broken hero. He is all hard edges and darkness until he meets Lizzie, who slowly shows him that there is still light in the world. I loved watchin ...more
