The first book in a new savagely intense trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.
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.
I have been anxiously waiting for Rick Savage’s book for a while now, and I was excited that Lisa Renee Jones was finally going to give Savage his trilogy. Yes!
Now I was curious to find out who Savage was going to find his happily ever after with, and it so happens that his trilogy is a Second Chance at Romance with the love of his life. I love Second Chances!
Candace Marks is the woman that Rick Savage walked away from years ago to keep her safe from his daily life. He doesn’t get called ‘Savage’ for anything. He’s the one that is invited to take care of things. He ends up back in San Antonio, where he left Candace Marks due to the man that needs him to take care of someone in San Antonio. Candace and Rick were engaged, but now Savage finds out that Candace has moved on and got involved with another man. A man that maybe his next target. Savage is not going to walk away from Candace again and will do anything to win her back. Candace, though doesn’t trust Rick. (She’s the only one that can call him Rick and get away with it.) Candace, though, has her issues to deal with, and now Rick is trying to help her with Walker Security’s help. Candace may be engaged to the man that Savage is after, but the man she’s engaged to a sleazeball in my eyes. I’ll let readers figure it out on their own, though. Let’s say I don’t handle well with liars and cheaters. Grrr!
Lisa Renee Jones shows us another side of Rick Savage in Savage Hunger, and I loved every bit of it. I’ve been in love with Savage since previous books/series of Lisa Renee Jones. Savage met his match with Candace, though, especially when they met each other in the beginning. Yes, Lisa introduces Savage’s and Candace’s story from the start, and it’s steamy and insta-love for these two characters.
Now, I have to wait until the next book in the trilogy since Lisa left readers hanging at the end. I’m glad she also has some of Walker Security in the book too. They will do anything to help Savage, and now they will help Candace. There are still some questions that need to be answered about Savage and the bad guy(s) in the story, and I can’t wait to find out where Lisa Renee Jones takes readers in Rick Savage’s and Candace’s story.
If you enjoy Romantic Suspense stories with a Second Chance Romance story, then this trilogy is for you. If you also fell in love with Savage from other books of Lisa Renee Jones, then you will thoroughly enjoy getting to know Savage more in this trilogy. If you haven’t been introduced to Savage, then what are you waiting for because he may become one of your book boyfriends.
