I love these Savage Shadows!
After watching Slate and Caden fall for the women they love Tanner knew he'd be next. And even though things are hot between him and Crystal he's worried about dragging her into the darkness of his life. But he never expected the shadows to come out and grab her.
Crystal knows Tanner is a dangerous man who doesn't mind getting his hands dirty, but there's just something about him that keeps her coming back for more. But how will she handle it when her life is put on t

Thanks to my friend Alex and Ellie Jean, I had this opportunity to read this book. This is the third book of series,, The Savage Shadows " and this is a story about Tanner, a fighter, and Crystal, fashionista. This story is full of chemistry, drama, danger... These two are made for each other. I love how Crystal pushes him to the limits and I love his alpha-male attitude and loyalty. I want to read other books of this series and meet Slate, Caden and Ocean ( alpha males ) and lovely Emerald and ...more

Absolutely LOVED Tanner and Crystal!

My Monster is book 3 in the Savage Shadows series by Ellie Jean. While this is part of a series, this is a standalone and can be read without reading books one and two, but why you'd want to is beyond me!

One of my favorite things about Crystal is her strong independence. She is spunky and doesn't take any of Tanner's crap. Yet at the same time she was sweet and submissive with him and it made their relationship very well rounded. The fact that she didn't just

"I'm an addict. And Crystal is my drug. My euphoria. My illumination. Crystal was saving me, but my world could kill her."

Crystal and Tanner lit up the first two books with their incredible chemistry, off the charts hysterical banter, and left me dying for their story. So much happened to these two, it was INSANE. It left me breathless, often unsure of where the story was heading, yelling at them both throughout, and screaming YAAAAASSSSS at the end!! There were even twists I never saw coming th

Wow these two are intense! Crystal and Tanner are so perfect for each other, he is ALL alpha, sexy, intense and loyal. Crystal is sassy mouthed, and will make him work for it. These two together are explosive. So much happens in this book, love is tested for sure What a great read this was, and holy I can not wait for more of these men.

MY MONSTER is book 3 of Ellie Jean’s Savage Shadow Series.....And you can read it as a stand-alone, but if you haven’t read the first 2 books, don’t miss them...The Savage Shadows are like an MC only with hot muscle cars... and the four guys are all hot, possessive and all alpha males...and the women are strong, sassy and can’t do what they’re told....makes for some good punishments....♥️🌼🔥

“But for the moment, I’m his possession and he’s my monster to toy with” crystal

Not all monsters are hiding in the dark; sometimes they are right in front of you claiming you. But he is my monster for a reason. Crystal has yet to learn but will soon figure out that Tanner is the Monster that she needs. Tanner is a Domineering take the bull by the horns man who will do everything to protect what’s his even if blood is spilled. Tanner and Crystal’s story is fast paced with action, love, hate, and

My Monster is book 3 in the new Savage Shadow series and the third book I've read by the talented author Ellie Jean. But definitely won't be the last. In book one we met the 4 alpha dangerous members of TSS, Slate, Ocean, Tanner and Caden plus 2 sexy sassy ladies, Emerald and Crystal. Book one is also Slate Saxe and Emerald Sawyer story. In book two the story is about Lace Baxter and Caden Draycott. Now, book three is about Tanner Grayson, a fighter and Crystal Harding, a smart mouthed fashionis ...more

Been looking forward to this story simce I first saw Crystal's sass and it did not disappoint.
Just like book two in series it's full of bombshells and drama that you don't want to miss.
Now that we are deep into the series the author is definitely not holding anything back in the suspense department, you'll be hooked from cover to cover.
Definitely a one click.

I absolutely loved My Monster. It can easily be read as a standalone book.

The story is about one strong willed stubborn sexy fashion designer named Crystal Harding and Tanner Grayson a man like no other. Tanner's strength his control is a lethal weapon, who is fiercely protective of those his considers family, however the darkness he has within is controlling and frightening.

This story is filled with plenty of action drama, darkness, suspense and passion that has no limit.

Holy amazeballs! Tanner and Crystal's story is hot! It's dark and gritty, sinfully arousing, a little angsty and the perfect amount of suspense that keeps the reader glued to the pages. I really loved the fact that the author included Epilepsy in this novel as being a sufferer of it myself. It isn't something that is acknowledged much and most people don't know enough about it. This entire series, which can be read as standalones, is one that I highly recommend. I'm looking forward to reading mo ...more

Turbulent, brooding, protector, a typhoon of emotions is what comes to mind when I think of My Monster by Ellie Jean. This book has me in a bit of a conundrum. I absolutely LOVE Tanner. His dark, sinful, alpha-dominate self is just mouthwatering. I just don’t think I connected well with Crystal and I really wanted to. There is more to her, I know there is and it left me wanting more from her.

Tanner is just delish. A Monster. A dead

They met thur their friends and it was an instant attraction with the normal love/hate vibes, thrown in for good measure.
He is the enforcer for the Savage Shadows, and she is a smart mouth fashionista,with a body to die for.
They come together,first as friends with benefits and then as a team.
There is trouble for the Savage Shadows, and she and the other women in the group are targets.
To find and protect them he turns into a monster,and she sees it. He is afraid that she wont want him anymore.

This book is the story of Tanner and Crystal. We also get to see what happens with the characters we met in the previous books in the series. It’s a story full of action and suspense at times. It even made me cry at some point. Overall, it is a wonderfully told story with ups and downs, action, lust, love, sadness, a little bit of every imaginable emotion weaved into the story and making the reader feel what the character is going through. I love Ellie Jean’s writing and her books are some of th ...more

Yet another fantastic read from this author. My Monster is a gritty hot read with tension, and pull. I loved Crystal and Tanner as individuals characters, but holy wow! When they get together… *fans self* Tanner alone kept me dreaming of smexy alphas and steamy dreams.

The way this book starts and ends is nothing short if a ride and what an enjoyable one it is. This author knows how to hook the reader and not let go! We do reconnect with past characters but this can be read as a standalone. I am

My Monster was another great read by Ellie Jean. I am loving this series! This is the third book in the Savage Shadows series and this story makes it hard to pick a favorite now. It is a dark, twisted book with great characters. Tanner and Crystal make such a great couple, they are complete opposites but complement each other so well. This was a story I did not want to end but couldn’t put down. I look forward to reading more by Ellie Jean in the future and would highly recommend this book and t ...more

I love this series and reading about a good Alpha Male. This series, yeah has some bad a@@ alpha males. Some might even call them/one a monster!
My Monster tells the story of Tanner and Crystal, finally!!!! These two have off the charts chemistry, and I for one loved their wild ride. So much happens with the plot, them, twists and turns, and just really a great freaking read.
And honestly who wouldn't want to have their own personal monster?

Book 1 My Bastard you get Slate and Emerald, book 2 My Devil you get Caden and Lace, now it's time for Tanner. 

This book is dual POV, it's hot, savage and a total page turner. 

Tanner Grayson and Crystal
Causal sex on demand, no-strings relationship, or is it? 

He's a brute force to be reckoned with, she's sassy and too sexy for her own good.

Tanner needs to figure his shit out and decide if one woman can be forever and Crystal doesn't know if she can trust him to keep it in his pants.

This is the 3rd book in this awesome series, and is Tanner and Crystal’s story. Tanner is a possessive and domineering fighter, and Crystal is a feisty fashionista, and the chemistry between them is explosive. This is a well written tale which is gripping, thrilling, intense, dark, violent, emotional, and with witty banter, suspense, twists, danger and love. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I highly recommend for all.

This is the 3rd book in this series. I haven’t read the first 2 but had no problems reading this as a stand-alone. I enjoyed it a lot. This book has a man willing to kill to keep his friends and loved ones safe and just because he feel like it when he gets into cage fights essentially a monster. It also has a woman that is a little spit fire fashionista who says what she thinks and captures the heart of a monster. There are plenty of really bad criminals, lots of blood and fights and killing. Th ...more

Crystal is a strong willed woman who doesn't let anyone tell her what to do. She is a love'em and leave'em kind a girl. She is hard working and getting her carreer off the ground. She doesn't need or want a man, but this monster is pulling out all the stops to try and impress her.

Tanner one of the Savage Shadows, kneels to no one. He believes himself to be the true defination of a monster. But he has found something that he can't get enough of, and is willing to fight for what he wants. Can he

Okay, so let me tell you, I love the Savage Shadows so much! Tanner and Crystal may very much be my favorite couple though, although I think I say that after every one of Ellie's books.

These guys are total Alpha A*holes, and these women take no crap. Crystal may let Tanner think he's the boss, but come on, she is amazing. And while I'd love to let you know my favorite scenes, they would be total spoilers. There is one amazing moment after another, and just when you think you can't be surprised

My Monster was, WOW. Just wow! It was one of those books that pulled you in and you couldn’t stop reading it because you had to know what was going to happen. Buckle up tight because you’re going on the ride of your life with My Monster. The chemistry between Tanner and Crystal crackles with electricity and fire. And OMG the twist I never saw coming or expected it. This book is a freaking awesome read and it so worth the wait for.

It was intended to be casual. Both took and each willingly gave but neither was prepared for the ultimate outcome. Two passionate but resistant people, both determined to have control and both afraid to take the first step. 100% percent guaranteed, just because Tanner is fiercely resisting his desire to claim Crystal does not mean that Crystal is not his and just fair warning, you mess with what is his, be prepared to meet the monster.

My wonderful life consists of my everyday job and looking after my 3 boys and husband. In my 'spare' time I like to try and do some writing.
I love cooking especially desserts and anything chocolate. I am a self confessed chocoholic!
I also love making craft, painting, drawing, cross stitch and calligraphy. But there isn't much time for these at the moment.
Sometimes I just love to grab a cup of tea
