Rick Savage, but they call him Savage and for a reason. He can make you laugh and then rip your heart out. No one knows that more than me, Candace Marks, the woman he left bleeding from the heart. I loved him. Lord, help me, I’ve never stopped loving him.
Now, I’m engaged to another man, a brutal man I’m trapped into marrying, when to my shock, Savage returns home. Savage who I haven’t heard from in years. I want to hate him. I have every reason to hate him, but I can’t. I still love him and I fear he will save me just to leave me bleeding one last time. He stirs my desires, a dark, delicious, and dangerous man destined to hurt me and leave me. This time I’m not sure I’ll survive.
This book sounded like my ideal read, a bad boy romance/second chance, but I couldn’t connect with the characters. Savage was too over the top Alpha for me, and Candace was an idiot. After 10 years you can’t expect someone to instantly forgive you and if someone broke your heart and left you, then you should make them work for it. The relationship was too instant and unrealistic. I struggled to finish it and just skimmed to the end. I didn’t hate it, but I definitely wouldn’t recommend it.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
