First, let me advise potential readers of two things. One, this book contains a pretty graphic attempted rape scene at the beginning that may be triggers for some (and, no, the H does not perpetrate it; I can't believe I even have to say this). Two, this ends in a cliffhanger. As to the last, I'd like to say thank you, Ms. Henry, for not only clearly stating this in the blurb, but also telling us when the next will be published, which is in only two weeks. So many authors either don't tell ...more

What a crazy story!
Harper wins an all inclusive cruise, which seems too good to be true.
I can't say much more without giving the story away.
Jane Henry's stories always entertain and give the reader lots of steamy Alpha men.
Lynn Thinking out loud
Wow. I really enjoyed this book. The plot us strong and keeps you engaged. I'm not impressed with how much a feminist the h is in the beginning.
But she soon changes her way of thinking.
I know this is an ARC but I really really hope this book gets a good proofread. It was definitely enough to distract a reader.
I read an advanced copy of this book.

Savage Dom is unlike anything I have read in probably ever. Savage Dom keeps you on your toes, nothing is what it seems, at one point I thought everyone was in a simulator but that got thrown out by the end of the story. I was at my wit's end trying to figure this story out and then it ended in a cliffhanger (which I knew was going to happen) so I am still trying to figure it out.

Jane always draws you into whatever world she creates but Savage Dom is different. This isn't your normal romance

Insert all the expletives you could possibly use after reading a mind-blowing book. Of course, with Jane Henry, this is no big surprise. Savage Dom is the first book in her two book Savage Island Duet.

From the beginning of the book, you know something fishy is about to happen. A man named Finley Morose and his military partner, have cooked up a scheme, an experiment. The final part is a woman, and they’ve found her.

Harper is a journalist who writes about women’s rights and feminist issues. She

Wow. This was a wild ride. From the start we know something is up and then we meet both Harper and Cy and I couldn’t help but love them. They were thrown together and I loved seeing them survive together. They didn’t give up. There is a huge mystery to this story and I’m still clueless on what twists are going to come up on the next book. It’s something high and I can’t wait to see what it is. 4 stars #2OCCJD

Oh, Jane Henry, what have you done to me? This book is dark and deviant. I loved every single second of it.

Harper is really interesting with the changes that she goes through during the book. There are all kinds of changes in her life. I think that some of them are good for her.

Cy has definitely been through some things, and I think that there are a lot of not good things that he went through.

The next part of this series is going to be fantastic, I know it.

Wow!!! This story just pulled me in. There are twists and turns and you never know what to expect. It's like a combination of Survival and Hunger Games and that just makes it click for me! I can't really say a whole lot because I don't want to give the story away but it does end of sort of a cliff hanger. The second book will be released shortly so there won't be that long of a wait. Just get the book!!! Ms. Henry has done an outstanding job of creating a world that is outstanding!!

Otay so I wasn't sure how I felt about this book for a minute... I kinda liked Harper but struggled with her thinking. Cy comes off kinda crazy when we first meet him but he's in the wilderness forever and has no sense of time or what's really happening. Cy saves Harper when someone attacks her but there is still danger all around. Its definitely survival of the fittest and will these two end up together? This will keep you on your toes for sure.

Imagine being stuck on a deserted island. Now picture ‘The Hunger Games’. Add in some twists. Remove the children and add in some grown men and one woman.
Can you picture it?
Yes?
Good.
That’s the premise of this story.
And it is good!
I’ve read this in one day.

Fair warning, this is a duet so this one does end on a cliff hanger.
Which I hate. Thankfully I’m reading them one after another.
You’ll love this one!

Imagine winning a trip to a beautiful Island where unbeknownst to you there are dark secrets everywhere. Think hunger games but, with a twist and lies at every turn that'll make your head spin. Kept me up reading until all hours of the night. There is cliffhanger so beware.

Absolutely AMAZING, sensuously suspense-filled with non-stop action romance you MUST BUY/READ!!
SAVAGE DOM knocked my socks off! I read it until I fell asleep, then woke with my glasses on and my Kindle in my lap! Of course, I kept reading until this amazing romance brought me through some of the best mystery writing I have ever read. Readers will ride the emotional roller-coaster as Harper and Cy do their best to survive the dire straits in which they find themselves. And the fierce winds we had

I looooove Jane Henry's books. A LOT. Several of them are all time faves that I love to reread. A LOT.
But although I looked forward to this duet, I found myself somewhat disappointed. Just somewhat.
Not the writing, that is excellent IMO, as always.
The wonderfully smooth flow that swirls the reader into the story effortlessly.
And I found with this one I felt the tropical heat, the humidity, heard the rustling of the trees (palms), the waves breaking on the shore, felt Cy & Harper's desperate

WHAT HAS THIS ISLAND DONE TO ME?

Well, Ms. Jane Henry has spun an on-the-edge-of-your-seat, out of the ordinary, fascinating tale and I’m hooked and ready for book two, Savage Love, due out February 13th. Cy, ‘Something isn’t right, but my mind won’t work right to help me piece together how I ended up here, what happened before the six of us landed on this island—and then one-by-one, strange things started happening, and we started losing men as they became feral.

Wow! Savage Dom is very different from most of Jane Henry's books. It isn't a Bratva story. It really isn't a Dom story. It is a story about survival and what brings out someone's most basic instincts. Harper is a busy career woman. She's a journalist and legal guardian of her disabled adult brother. She wins a surprise cruise which she questions greatly but her friends encourage her to take the well deserved vacation that she needs. What she doesn't know is that she is part of something very ...more

Well now that was interesting. This is the beginning of Cy and Harper’s story.

Harper hasn’t had a vacation in longer than she can remember. She taking care of her younger brother and working her butt off to keep things afloat. She writes on behalf of women’s empowerment. When she wins a cruise it seems too good to be true. When they make a stop at a beautiful island she comes back to the beach to find the shop gone.

I always enjoy a good Jane Henry story and this beginning to the Duet, does not disappoint. I love a good darker mystery read, and this one was right up my ally. I could not put my kindle down while reading. I had to know what happens next. Be prepared for a good plot, filled with a touch of scary, some bloody scenes, mystery, good old fashioned violence and a touch of romance. Or should I say Dominance.

Harper is a journalist and huge on women's rights. She is hesitant to on a cruise that she

I usually read 1-3 books per day, depending on my schedule. For a book to take me three days is unprecedented, but that's exactly what happened with this book. Reading the prologue, I was a bit confused but thought it would work itself out a little further along. Nope, it didn't. The more I read, the more confused I became. Don't get me wrong, the story, once I got into it, was a good read and the relationship between Cy and Harper, is chemically charged within their survival story. But the who ...more

I received an arc for an honest review. I don't know who these authors think of settings and situations, but this book blew me away. I stayed up VERY late last night - I kept telling myself, just one more chapter, until I finished it. It definitely is a page turner. Cy and Harper are the characters in this book. Cy, a SEAL, has no memory of how he got on the island, along with 6 others. Each person has disappeared and presumed dead except for Will, which Cy wants no part of him. However, they ...more

Interesting book

Not your typical read. This is a science experiment gone wrong in so many ways, men taken captive /brainwashed and reduced to animals who kill themselves or others, a woman dropped into the situation to satisfy the parameters of the experience and further the wants of the people controlling the situation. The controllers want to prove their theory but the story leaves you hanging with so many questions, and the blurb didn't do justice to what the story was about, I'll read the

This is a bit of a departure for this author in that this book is very definitely NOT a standalone. It is part 1 of a 2 part series. This means that not all of your questions will be answered by the end of the book. It's a slower, more anticipatory build that will leave you desperately wanting book 2 immediately because you just need to know - who, what, where & why?? Now it did take me a bit longer than usual to get into this book because of how it started. It really doesn't pull any ...more

HOLY HELL! I’m not even inclined to give any sort of description since it’s so much better if you go in blind. Now I know what some could say that the shock value of the darkness turned them off, but it does say Dark Romance everywhere so there’s that. Jane Henry came off brilliant with Savage Dom, as there was so much goodness to feed my dark & twisty soul. This story was darkly (yes I keep using forms of dark but don’t want there to be any confusion) intense sparking some big levels of ...more
