I was her downfall.

Maybe together we could change our fate . . .

Review by Candy:
“She was my destiny.
I was her downfall.
We were a match made in hell. But when we were together, that hell was pure heaven.”
This is not your average love story of boy meets girl, it is a story of a love that’s true but destructive because lies are told and consequences will happen because of them. I truly enjoyed this sad love story that had all kinds of elements including suspense. The twists and turns on this roller coaster will have thinking one thing and then BAM it’s not what you thought for the most part.
The title only becomes part of the story at the end, Savage. Alexander is a rich kid on a mission but when he notices Sara Jane walking, the mission becomes to paths…finds the answers and follow my heart. Sara Jane is a rich girl but not in the way Alexander is, her world is light where as Alexander’s is dark. Sara Jane sees something in Alexander that no others see, his dark that hides his light.
When lies are revealed can Sara Jane forgive those who lied, especially Alexander? Can Alexander truly let go of Sara Jane after the events of the company party that revealed more lies? Will Sara Jane come back to Alexander after time has passed?
This was a book that once you start you can only put it down when your eyes close from tiredness. This story is told from both main characters but mostly Sara Jane. These two will take into their world and make you wonder what is going to happen to these two that are destined to possibly destroy each other or love each other?
The sex scenes will have you fanning yourself because the chemistry is off the charts for Sara Jane and Alexander. This is a book for those 18+ due to explicit scenes. This is not a stand alone so there is a cliffhanger.
I can’t wait for Savior the second part of this series to see what exactly happened. S.L. Scott is now an author I will look forward to reading in the future. 5 stars for the start to a extreme series.

He moves with assurance, every step taken with purpose. When I met him, he oozed confidence, but I discovered that he didn’t know who he was. It was as if his mother’s death had caused him to lose track of himself. He made me feel safe and secure, taken care of, and loved. He was never unsteady around me. But I would catch him lost in his own thoughts when he assumed I was studying. I remember a night when music played softly in the background, a fire flamed in the fireplace, my books were scattered on the coffee table, and his room was dim with the heaviness of his mood, he stood in the open doorway that led to the balcony. The anguish seemed to cover him like a cloak, his shoulders sagging and his head seeming too cumbersome to hold up. Alexander leaned against the railing and closed his eyes . . .
“Kingwood Enterprises is the only thing left of my mother.”
“You’re left of her.”
“No.” He laughed, looking up at the night sky. “I’m all bad, just like my dad.” Glancing over his shoulder back at me, he sighed. “When are you going to see the real me, Sara Jane?”
“I see the real you every time I see you. This is who you are. I don’t know why you think you’re so bad when all I see is the good.”
With a smile on his face, he turns around, and crosses his arms over his chest. “You’re the smartest decision I ever made. You know that?”
“Yes,” I say, feeling sassy. “Now come and kiss me.”
“You’re so demanding when you get compliments.”
“You like it.”
Hopping over the arm of the couch, he lands with a thud next to me sending my textbooks to the floor. “I do like it. A lot.”
That was a good kiss. A kiss that went from chaste to more in seconds. I still remember it so clearly.
Alexander may not have known who he was at the time, but he knew who he was going to be. I often wonder if it was a self-fulfilling prophecy or falling into a trap set long before he was born. There are a lot of ghosts haunting this manor and I don’t intend to let him be the next.
Tonight, his secrets are protected by a solid wave of muscle that rolls over broad shoulders, crashing down strong arms. I turn over to get a better look at him before he disappears outside. He’s been working out a lot more lately. He says it’s to get rid of pent-up energy. I think it might be preparing for battle.
