They call him a monster.
Pale blue eyes as cold as ice that see right through you.
He lives in a castle fit for a fairy tale, but he’s no prince.
He’s a killer.
By an act of fate, our worlds collide.
They call him a monster, but he is my salvation.
Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
LA Fiore loves losing herself in the worlds she creates. She also loves a good movie; her favorite is Star Wars, a love her son shares. They hope to build their own Millennium Falcon one day. She would like to meet the Winchester Boys to thank them for enlightening her on the versatility of salt as not just a food enhancer, but also a form of protection against supernatural threats. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and kids, their two spoiled cats, their awesome dog and their new puppy.
First I just have to say that this cover is amazing! Those pale blue eyes are hypnotizing. I would buy this book just for that cover.
L.A. Fiore has such a gift of taking you to a new place and creating magic like no one else. I saw it in her book "Waiting for the One" when she took us to Maine and when she took us on a high sea adventure in "Elusive." She works that magic once again in "Savage" by taking us to beautiful Scotland.
Her imagery in the landscape, the castles, the small town feel with all the wonderful small town characters really made this story stand out. But that's just the small piece to this story. What really stands out are our main characters, Brochan and Lizzie.
Brochan and Lizzie have had such a sad introduction into life. Learning their tale of what you can only call survival was heartbreaking, but also inspiring. The things these two have had to overcome would crumble most people. There really is nothing better than to read about two people overcome such odds and finding true love in one another.
L.A. Fiore really has done it again! ARC provided by NetGalley.
I wish I could give Savage more than 5 stars!!!! Savage is another phenomenal read by L.A. Fiore. I wasn't really sure what to expect when I started this book, but I absolutely loved Brochan and Lizzie. While there are some dark parts to this book, the beautiful parts shine the brightest! The chemistry between Brochan and Lizzie is a slow build but oh so worth the wait!! I love the alpha side of Brochan! He is hot and sexy as sin! I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to read what L.A. releases next!
Two Souls Meant to Intertwine
Two unwanted children who become two lost and lonely adults
Two kindred souls who endured hellish situations and dealt with their circumstances in completely opposite ways.
A man who feels nothing…a woman who feels too much.
A man whose life choices continues the cycle of hate that began when he was born.
A woman who chooses to is channel her pain and torment into hauntingly beautiful works of art, finding beauty in even the ugliest things.
A woman’s unknown family member who serves as the man’s conscience provides an opportunity for the man and woman to meet and find a way to be each other’s voice in the darkness, working to bring them into the light and awaken the man and woman beneath the broken and bent surface.
I can’t even begin to explain just how epic Brochan and Lizzie’s story is! Not only does L.A. Foire create two amazingly dynamic characters who continually change throughout the course of their story, but the setting itself, especially Scotland, serves as an important supporting character - one that allows both its majestic scenery as well as its darkened and dense terrain to serve as a healing agent and an obstacle to overcome.
The secondary title of L.A. Fiore’s latest release, ‘The Awakening of Lizzie Danton,’ allows readers to clearly understand which character will transform due to the events of the story, and while Lizzie most definitely changes because of the new opportunities she receives from a long-lost family member, her courage, passion, and perspective on life actually awakens Brochan’s suppressed emotions and allows him a way to stop the cyclical nature of his rage and an opportunity to find happiness amidst the ugly parts of his past and his present.
Savage is an epic love story…a dark and twisted fairy tale where the hero is perceived to be a damaged monster…an unfeeling killer…a dangerous supernatural being hellbent on destroying everyone and everything in his path, and while Brochan, in some ways, exhibits all of those attributes, there’s more to him than that and it’s Lizzie’s endless ability to find joy and happiness despite all that she’s endured that allows Brochan to see his current situation for what it is - an opportunity to fight against life’s ugliness and make a life in the light instead of in the darkness that has always seemed to shadow his life.
L.A. Fiore is a phenomenal storyteller - one who seems to understand the human heart and its many facets and delivers a story that readers can’t help but feel emotionally invested in because the characters, both main and supporting, as well as the content of the storyline itself are beyond captivating and meaningful, making each and every book Fiore crafts, must-read!
