I have to make things clear before starting to write how I feel about this book! I love Mia Sheridan’s writing! She’s one of ten best favorite romance writers of mine! I loved her old school style, I adore her horoscope series!

“Will you die today?”

Well, color me surprised ...

Believe it or not, Ms. Sheridan wrote a romantic whodunit!! Atypical in every sense of the imagination when compared to her other books, but one I certainly enjoyed.

This unusual storyline goes back and forth between the past and present regarding the hero, Jak, who by the way, is quite yummy ;)

It is jammed packed with mystery and backstory details, along with a law enforcement agent assigned to put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

They need her expertise and assistance to help canvas the area. Their only lead so far is a suspect that is described as a savage.

Just know that I’m currently nursing a nasty bookhangover bcs of this beastly of a book. If my current state of emotional distress doesn’t convince you enough to pick this book up, then I don’t know what else to tell you. I think this is perfect specifically for fans of Archer's Voice.

Amazing cast of characters
I think the characterisation is overshadowed by the plot and the romance. However, the characters are believable and real. I’m absolutely crazy about the H and I felt deeply about

An almost perfect read from Mia Sheridan.
Not only did I totally fall in love with all aspects of this story but it also took me very much by surprise.

A romantic suspense and so much more...
The author takes us on such a gripping and emotional journey. It is a poignant yet extremely satisfying read.
Jak/Lucas totally stole my heart in a not too dissimilar way from how I felt about Archer Hale.
This is a standout book from a highly talented author that has already produced some amazing a

Wow! This was such a good book. Probably one of my favorite by this author thus far. It was that good! It was unique, intriguing and so well written. The characterization and visualization...phenomenal. The plot’s more mystery/suspense than romance but there’s such a beautiful, slow burn, love story intertwined throughout that’s chock full of heart-and-soul.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to read an unique, captivating mystery with a fantastic slow-burn romance.
3.5 Stars

Overall Opinion: This sucked me in from the start! It is no secret that I love Mia Sheridan! Her ability to write such damaged characters that work together is such an art! She writes about the ugly things that have happened to people but having it so they always persevere and find happiness and love regardless! I know some people said they felt like this H was similar to Archer in Archer's Voice, but I actually related this book more to Kyland and how the survival instinct kicks in for

Mia Sheridan just raised the bar on her own writing!

I literally have no words after reading this out of this world experience. I’m not even going to try to wax eloquent, and attempt to formulate words that make sense because I simply cannot with Savaged. All I can do is weep and realize the blessing that we have as readers when our favorite authors create magic like this. Mia went outside her comfort zone with this one and it shows.

I absolutely loved this book! The characters were well fleshed out and the sex scenes were definitely hot. I loved the power interchange between them.
Savaged is more than survival instincts and suspense. The imagery is wonderful with it, and the narration by Mia Sheridan allowed me to visualize so much. I enjoyed the book, although I think it lacked romantic intensity.
A thoroughly entertaining and riveting read.

In short:

Savaged was a beautiful story about two characters who are trying to survive and make the best out of the bad hand they were dealt with in life. Both Jak and Harper were great and intriguing characters, and I looked forward to discovering new things about their past. Savaged was mysterious, suspenseful, emotional, and very romantic. Mia Sheridan created an original story with very interesting characters that you can't help but love. I liked that t

3,75 stars rounded up to 4

SAVAGED is a book in which quite a lot of tropes are blended with one another: there is a thick mystery and suspense, there is a survival story and there are murders to be solved, which all give it a thriller vibe. There is also a crazy experiment on children and there is child abuse in really horrific ways. Amongst all this ugliness, a very beautiful love story is born but the romance is unfortunately overshadowed by all the other stuff.

Clearly, it’s me and not the book, but I’m not going to apologize for that. This just wasn’t my kind of romantic suspense. I was expecting a raw and gritty story, but that’s not what I got. The mystery was interesting, but predictable. The romance was syrupy sweet and somewhat sappy. The story overall dragged with limited action scenes. Other than the villains, almost everybody else was just too damn nice.

I'm in awe! Best Mia Sheridan's book for now, I think. Actually, I’m in book-hangover right now.
It's more suspense, mystic and thriller than romance, but there is beautiful love story too!
This is book about hope, strength of mind, waiting for better, forgiveness, love, protection, survival...
A lot of twists, when you think you've got everything out, you'll find new twist.

I said before, Mia Sheridan has her tricks of pulling you in and making you want to hold on until everything is revealed to you. The idea of this book was very original and interesting. I ve read survival books before, but just in the prn/shifters genre(if you could call that survival..anyway). Well, this was definitely different , in a good way.

Revealing something about the plot will spoil the mystery and suspense going on in this book, so I ll just say, this starts with a bomb (vi

Wow! This book is just.... perfect. Perfect blend of romance and Lord of the Flies/ Hunger Games. Again, Miss Sheridan done it. She surely can write anything with romance in it and blew it up into perfection.

Jack character remains me so much of Archie Hale's character. They both complex hero. Sweet loving and vulnerable. I love Jack. He is my new book boyfriend especially with that savage twist. Harper is likeable character. This story can end perfectly without the twist of the ending.

It never fails. Just when I think there isn’t an original plot line left in the world, Mia publishes a book that proves me wrong. Two characters unlike any you’ve ever met. A back story and setting you would never imagine. I fell hard into this story of survival, survival of human beings, human spirit, and most of all love.

Let’s be clear right from the start—this story is implausible, filled with holes the size of meteor craters, and at times laugh-out-loud ridiculous. It’s also feral, animalistic and peppered with enough unbridled lust to make it a GREAT read. This author has mastered the art of character development and does so here with a brilliant, heavy hand that left me breathless and wanting my very own Jak.

The story is that of Jak (aka Lucas), an eight year old abandoned to nature fifteen years prior and

I don't think I've ever reviewed a Mia Sheridan book with 5 stars. This is still the case. But they're usually above 3 stars, and this is also the case.

Maybe 3.5 stars with this one.

I did skip quite a bit. I liked the interaction between Jak and Harper the best. Honestly if the book was cut by 30%, just keeping enough suspense and mystery but focusing on Jak and Harper, it might be closer to a 5 star.

It's LONG. I'm not a fan of LONG books that don't make me want to read every word.

Very unusual story

I am torn between a three and four star read because there were times it dragged a little bit by the end I was so glad I read it. Jak is a young boy cruelly left to survive in the harsh Montana winter as a boy of eight. An experiment in savagery and survival. The th I vs he went through were just too horrible for words but he did make it. It starts out with the death of the man who had been using him as a lab rat. He meets a woman as well as a sheriff that will change his life.

First, I was so excited to see that Mia Sheridan was going to give us another gem and let me just what a gem it is!! When I read the blurb I was like okay this is very different from what I'm used to from the amazing Mia Sheridan but I know she knows how to give us a story that will stay with us for a long time to come.

Lucas's had to fight for his life from a young age and I cannot even begin to imagine how he managed to survive when others didn't. Life taught him to trust no one so he always m

Last time I read or attempted to read this author, people were disgusting calling my review out. I guess they haven’t heard of “no two people read the same book” or maybe just maybe they’re just too damn ignorant. Though i showed proof of what I read was true. And now i won’t even bother anymore with this book or any of this author’s book for that matter.

Savaged is unlike any other Mia Sheridan's that I have read so far!

It is rather a crime/mystery mixed with romance.

The opening scene begins in the night somewhere above a cliff where four little boys will be abruptly thrown into empty air with a question: Will you die today?
These four kids were obviously kidnapped and we'll learn later that they were part of a sick scheme.

Throughout the story we will follow one of them Jack forced to do unspeakable things to survive, totally alone fo

I love a lot of authors but no one can compare to Mia Sheridan. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. So much suspense. So many feels it’s crazy I’m not sure why because they aren’t even similar but I kept thinking at times about Archer Hale. It isn’t even summer yet but this is THE BOOK of the summer. I never saw things coming that happened but I ADORED this book. I finished with a HIGE smile on my face and sadness as well because it makes me wonder does this eve
If you enjoyed Archer you will enjoy this one too.
Mix in some murder mystery and wilderness and you have a really interesting book.
I like narrators so the audiobook was great.
Even though the emotion was there and it did tug on my strings I never really felt it completely.
At the end of it, Lucas was very well adjusted.

wow this book is absolutely surreal and emotional as hell

Savaged by Mia Sheridan is such a heart-gripping bittersweet novel comprising a mystery mixed with romance between two intriguing characters.

The story plot was truly enthralling and I was hooked from the very beginning.
This is such a beautiful romance novel.

Mia Sheridan never disappoints.
