Today we are delighted to be sharing the first book in a new savagely intense trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, SAVAGE HUNGER
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 ever 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.

Second chance romances have and always will be my favourites. There’s no need for getting to know one another, there’s always chemistry from the outset. Always chock full of enough fuel to start a five-alarm fire. I live for the crash and burn of a second chance. I thrive on the insurmountable odds being concurred. The past being burned down around the couple and the phoenix that will soar above, emerging from the ashes of its smouldering carcass.
Nothing could have prepared me for the impact of Rick and Candace. Avoidance and repression had been Rick’s drug of choice. He became a professor in the art of staying the heck away from his past.
That is until he’s forced back to where it all began. Knowing that he has no other choice than to face the only woman who had ever slain the savage beast thriving and devouring his soul.
Candace can handle herself, most assuredly knows her way around a gun, blame that on her upbringing if you will. She can kick butt and take names, she made one hell of an impact on me in the first few pages. She impressed me more than I can articulate. I love a woman who can be tough and then soft. She switches from one to the other like I flick through pages of a book. I could quite easily become her number one cheerleader.
Suspense, action and romance; what more could a gal ask for? As is typical for this author, the story hits the ground running. No build-up, just typical wham bang thank you, ma’am.
Questions, half-truths, and huge abandonment issues are only a few of the issues Candace and Rick have to rebuild from. Candace takes no prisoners, forcing Rick to answer for his past mistakes. He owns them all, open and vulnerable. Body as hard as granite with a heart as soft as cotton wool. She owns him lock, stock and barrel and all she has to do is open her heart and turn the key. Heat and passion surround them. It’s almost as if they’re bathing in the flames of intensity.
But hold the phone; could this book get any better? Oh baby, I’m only teasing. I cannot wait to get the sequel in my greedy little hands. But wait! Be prepared. This five-alarm inferno ends on a cliff hanger. Be prepared to want to throw your Kindle around, instead take a moment and breathe. To do this would mean one sadly upsetting thing. How would you read the sequel?
Thank you, Ms. Jones, for once again reminding me why I relish reading.
“Why are you here alone, Rick Savage?”
He fixes me in a deep blue stare, and I swear I’m drifting in a sea of this man’s making. “To meet you. I just didn’t know it yet.”
The rain explodes around us again, an eternal roughening of the windows that only Texas does with such force. Thunder erupts with it, lightning in the distance, and I don’t know who moves first. Him or me. Suddenly though we’re in the middle of the seat and his fingers are tangling all rough and wonderfully in my hair, his mouth lowering to mine. “I’m going to kiss you now unless you object,” he says.
“Kiss me already, Savage.”
“Rick. Call me Rick.” And then his lips collide with my lips, his tongue a deep stroke of pure heat that has me moaning with the rush of sensation that assaults my body in the best of ways.
My arms slide around his muscular back, body pressing against his body, the hard lines of this incredible man absorbing more than the softer part of me. That need to be touched explodes inside me, demanding satisfaction. He pulls back and stares down at me. “Do you want to get out of here? Together.”
I tell myself this is crazy, insane, wildly out of my character. “I don’t do things like this. Ever.”
He kisses me again and leaves me breathless. “Make me the first.”
