Instincts are all we have to rely on.
And mine were spot on.

There are a few things I don’t like to talk about in life.
My father.
And Kansas.
I hate him, and I hate that godforsaken state.
To this day, I haven’t loved because there’s a fear.
An inkling.
An instinct that I will be just like him.
I convinced myself our blood was rotten, tainted, and sour.
I believe I didn’t have the

I know I say this with every new release from this amazing duo, but these books truly just keep getting better and better! My goodness, it's almost unfair how obsessed I am with this series, lol, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

The prologues of these books always guts me, and this book is no exception. Though it's not an in-your-face, overwhelming and heartbreaking abuse, it's still heartbreak at the same time. Especially when you realize the person you've looked up to your entire life is

Not in Kansas anymore is an understatement...

Fate and karma can be fickle creatures. They can be a blessing and a curse.

Kansas has to come to terms with so much at such a young age,  and that has him scared to believe that he is worthy of what life has given him.   He has been given a new life and a new chance under Boomer's leadership of the AC Kings.

Violet and her sisters were introduced at the end of Boomer's Rise.   She has the task of rebuilding their lives from scratch.  The instant pull

Kansas is the follow up to Boomers Rise, picking up where things left off, doors are opened and we get more insight into some of the other characters, with this being Amos Taylor aka Kansas’s book.

We get to see that Kansas is slightly different to some of the other Kings we’ve grown to know and love over time, not in a bad way, he’s just.. well.. you’ll understand what I’m saying once you start getting to know him more yourself and that’s exactly what happens from the start of this book, we get

Another amazing installment of the Ruthless Kings, Atlantic City chapter. Kansas was the perfect follow up story to Boomers Rise. We get more details on characters mentioned and the doors get opened for the remaining Kings in New Jersey. I have mentioned before and it still hold true; I need a thesaurus to be able to accurately describe my feelings. K.L. Savage keeps the readers invested and wanting more, despite how much we get.

Kansas is a bit different than other Kings. His trauma was discover

The Ruthless Kings of Atlantic City have had their fair share of tragedy, betrayal and pain. It seems that Kansas’ road to love is no different, unfortunately.

Kansas knows how to treat a woman with kindness, honesty and care. He’s loyal, dangerous and yet, he has a soft heart when it comes to women and the elderly. He’s always there to take Homer to Bingo, even though he hates going, and he is always ready to stand by his brothers no matter what. The Atlantic City chapter of the Ruthless Kings

OH My! I was excited to see what all Kansas went through and the why and the hows of the way he is. I just did not realize that it was like this. It broke my heart at the beginning and I am so floored at this point. making it through this book had me seeing Kansas with new eyes and really that is what it is.

Kansas is a different kind of man within the MC. He is broken from his past and is hopeful for the future. His experience with the old chapter made him more determined to be a good man, which he definitely is.

Kansas makes sure to take care of Violet after her and her sisters are washed ashore. Not knowing anything about her, even her name, he is drawn to her completely. Wanting to know more, do more, be more.

Violet, even though she knows nothing about Kansas, she feels safe with him. She doesn

Whipping weevils wiley! Savage serves up some cold harsh reality, rocking this incredibly scrumptious, delectably delightful piece of perfection, delivering one action packed, hard hitting, heart pounding, pulse racing, adrenaline pumping, spine tingling, rock-my-world dynamo, catapulting this hot little number to staggering heights. True to form, Savage wraps us up snug as a bug in a rug, laying out one sensational tangled web so intricately and precise, luring us d

Kansas is one of the few remaining original Ruthless Kings of Atlantic City. After the treatment from the former prez, Kansas is more than proud to be a part of the new Kings under Boomer. He has not had an easy life, like so many of the other Ruthless Kings, but he has come to the other side a better person, bound and determined to prove he was not like his old man. After the turmoil of the last few years, Kansas is ready for a change in his personal life. So, when he feels the pull to a woman ...more

Exciting MC romance with a fierce brothers, dastardly foes and a sexy romance. We get Kansas' backstory and it's tragic and affects the way he sees himself and leads his life. Plus his woes with the old chapter are horrible. And the past doesn't stay in the past in this story. Kansas is not one for romance until a boatload of sisters crash on the MC's shore. He's immediately enamored with the oldest one Violet aka Springs. She's an innocent but she's strong and resilient as she takes responsibil ...more

Kansas is book 2 about Boomer's club The Ruthless Kings in Atlantic City. This is Kansas' and Violet's story. When I first read about this Atlantic City spin off I figured the characters would be similar to the characters in Las Vegas. Surprisingly this MC chapter while just as fierce as Las Vegas is different. I think Boomer's leadership is why. Each spinoff of the Kings Las Vegas is "seasoned" a different way and evoke my emotion a little differently.

Atlantic City is the place to be! Picking up where we left off in Boomer’s Rise, we learn more about the shipwrecked boat during the storm. The three women aboard as well as the product that must belong to someone and that someone is going to come looking for either the women, the product or both. While our Kings try to figure out who is going to be coming, the women heal and Kansas spends every moment he can with one he calls Springs since she hasn’t spoken.

At the end of Boomer’s Rise, Book 1 of the Ruthless Kings AC Chapter, we got a hint of what was to come when a boat with three half dead women aboard, crashed on the beach outside the clubs clubhouse. From that point I knew the next book was going to be a thrilling ride. KL Did Not disappoint me. Just WOW. From the very start Kansas held me captivated. His life as a youngest wasn’t an easy one. It didn’t get much better as a member of the original Ruthless Kings chapter in AC. (the one Boomer Bl ...more

Well we aren't in Kansas, we are in Atlantic City and what's there you ask - EVERYTHING!!!
K.L. Savage has once again created a world and characters that will obliterate your heart and warm it at the same time. This particular story is about Kansas (aka Amos) and Violet (aka Springs).
Violet and her two sisters literally landed on the door step of the Atlantic City MC Chapter during a storm. Do the girls only need shelter from the storm or are they bringing a whole new storm to the clubs door step

Kansas & Violet

Violet and her two sisters were rescued from a boat filled with drugs (end of the last book) Right now they need to get them checked out and warmed up. He can't seem to think of anything but warming her up in the most pleasant way possible. He's told himself he can't love and have a life and family other than the MC. She makes him think there could be a future but with the drugs and the man who wants them out there he has to make sure the women are safe.

Violet & Kansas love story we start with their back story.

We learn why Kanas is his name and his past comes back for him. Violet and her sisters survived a storm in their family boat. They still recovering from the shock.

I'm going to start out by saying that the beginning of Kansas' story is set in Oklahoma (which is pretty original) when he was Amos. Amos finds out his father is a shady fellow who does his shady business in Kansas (a state that I'm not fond of whatsoever living in Oklahoma myself). Fast forward to present day, and Amos is now Kansas, a member of the Ruthless Kings MC in Atlantic City, and he's falling for a woman that they rescued named Violet, but he calls her Springs before she gives her name ...more

What a book! I don't know how KL Savage does it. Everytime a new book comes out I think...This is my new favorite book...and then the next book is even better. I freaking LOVE Kansas. It was so different than some of the other books. Amos "Kansas" Taylor actually grew up in a very loving home with a bright future ahead of him but not everything that glitters is gold.

Kansas aka Amos is going to rock your world and leave you saying "thank the Lord above" that K.L. has the honor of telling his story.

Violet is probably my favorite lady. She's isn't afraid to show that she might be innocent but far from naive. She is that unafraid woman who knows what she wants. The sexual chemistry is the stuff to be envious of. I can tell you that I will never look at peach tea the same!!!! 😉

This is such a thriller read, loved the rollercoaster of emotions in this book. Wow the two main characters were so different but were fated to be with one another. This one drew me in from the first page i couldn't put it down, Kansas and Violet were brought together but completed to halves to make a whole.

Kansas and Violet both were both rescued from death that to me is what makes them a powerful team. Violet and Kansas experienced heart ache and loss yet they found each other. Kansas is hurt

Kansas is the 2nd book in the Ruthless Kings MC Atlantic City series. It kicks off straight after Boomers Rise with 3 sisters being washed up on the MC's beach. The oldest Violet (Springs) being the object of Kansas' (Amos) attention. Violet certainly goes through a lot in this book but she has a strength and a sweetness thats endearing. I liked her from the beginning more so after she took the place of their parents to take care of her sisters. Even when they gave her plenty of trouble.

Oh these Atlantic City boys are stealing my heart! I didn't think that was possible. The Vegas boys are temperamental, unstable and violent. They're amazing. This chapter though, led by Boomer are fierce and focused. They pull no punches but keep their eyes on the road ahead. Maybe its because they are so new and finding their way. Kansas was part of the original chapter, he was tortured when he wouldn't fall in line. He is really such a sweet soul willing to do whatever it takes to protect the ...more

This is the second book of this spin off but we have met Kansas in at least 2 books before his own. This book picks up right after Boomer's Rise. The club has recued 3 young women from a crashed yacht. Boomer is drawn to the oldest sister.
