Pain turns me on
Danger lights me up
But she sets me on fire
It’s my turn to fight the shady Organization that’s dug its goddamn claws into every business in my town. Setting up my trap while keeping my friends safe is a challenge—and my private life shouldn’t interfere with my mission.
Except it does. Because the only way to reach the center of the web is to crawl right into the spider’s lair—and that turns out to be the Cronin Scarlet Hotel. Luxury hotel with a kink, and my regular haunt.
The perfect way in. Nobody will bat an eye if I ask for my usual relief from stress in one of their stylish pain rooms with some random girl who likes to dom. It will only take a phone call.
But there’s one complication: Mia.
A very sxy complication.
She works at the hotel as a maid, and she’s prim and proper and damn pretty. So buttoned up, her gaze so icy when she looks at me, she pushes all my buttons. I want to tie her up, I want her to tie me up, I want to try every filthy kink possible with her.
But she doesn’t want anything to do with me ever since I kissed her. One searing hot kiss and I was lost, but she pushed me away.
Why do I want a girl who’s nothing like the women I usually go for? A girl who doesn’t want me. And how the hell am I going to keep my mind on taking down the corrupt Organization when she’s around?

The Warden – A sexy new novella by M.C. Cerny.
Savage is a story of fighting your own demons and chasing hope through love. A contemporary romance with a dark fairytale vibe set in the majestic Scotland. I fell in love with the characters and the vividly described scenery. – Elena’s Book Blog
Savage was an absolutely breathtaking read. From start to finish, L.A. paints incredibly vivid pictures that make you feel like you’re actually in the old castles on the rolling hills of Scotland. It was a masterpiece from beginning to end. –Sophie, Bookalicious Babes
LA Fiore weaved together the perfect romance with Savage. I fell in love with Brochan and Lizzie so completely I never wanted the book to end. – Author Jessica Prince
The author did a brilliant job bringing Scotland alive, everything was told in such graphic detail that if I closed my eyes I was taken on a mystical journey. Definitely a highly recommended one click come release day, this is a journey you will want to go on. –Kitty Kat’s Crazy About Books
Both the main characters were amazing. I ADORED Lizzie. She was smart. She was a fighter. She was feisty. She had a huge heart and accepted everything that was Brochan without censor or hesitation. Brochan was a bit more complicated. He had that sexy, brooding thing down to a science. –Eve, Between the Bookends
There actually was a tingling in my fingers when I saw that I had Savage by LA Fiore on my kindle. I was itching to get home and to have time to start devouring it.
Some authors just do that to you …Sure there might be plots of them that I do not like and will not read even if they write them. But IF I like the plot then I can be pretty sure that the book will be everything I imagine and sometimes even more.
I might make a top 10 list of books I loved within a year but I will never make a Top10 list of authors … I can’t and I won’t but IF I did I am pretty PRETTY sure this author would be on it.
Sometimes I think I need to carry a recording device with me at all times when I read because I usually have the most vivid thoughts for my reviews the moments I read the book. In case of this book I had several approaches ready and later when I sat down to write they have all disappeared usually leaving me (in cases of a great book like this) with a bad case of book hangover and no idea what kind of book to read after a journey like this.
The most intense feeling I am left with is that not everything in life is black and white. There really is a lot of grey and not all is wrong or right. Sometimes there is a something in-between. I was surprised about the way those darker areas wove their way through the story. Maybe it was because of the deep introduction I got to the characters but those dark areas sort of felt like not dark at all.
There were moments when I understood the thoughts of the female lead all too well . Even I as a reader should SO NOT be OK what was going on. I mean there were people (NO spoilers from me – sorry) but I was just feeling kind of “That is the way it is and we will go from here”. Should I be worried about my line of thinking?
Usually I would be worried but I know in this specific case it’s the Fiore Magic hidden in the wafts of mist behind some Kilts in the Highlands. I know many people have tried their Hand in Versions of Beauty and the Beast. Some are good and some failed. And honestly I am not even sure if it was the authors intention to go in that direction but still I am pretty sure that lovers of that specific tale will love this book.
The characters often talk about a very different fairytale (and it fits the story while they do it) but to use that tale here as a comparison would not work as nobody would get the deeper meanings behind it without knowing the details.
There is a lot of magic in that story without even a touch of paranormal. I actually saw myself there with the leads in that beautiful setting. My mind conjured a complete movie style setting and it might be because of the place but somehow even Sean Connery got a role in my play.
Random thoughts :
While I do not agree with how a certain situation was handled because it did not fit my view of the female lead I got why it was done because the characters explained themselves well.
Someone said this is a Dark Romance … it might be compared to other books of this author but I personally think a Dark Romance in this kind of genre is something like Sick Fux by Tillie Cole – this book here is more a grey romance with damaged leads that are good in their core.
Let’s get rid of the ugly – people … it’s Christmas …(soon-ish)
