This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Farrell Black is dirty, dangerous, and holds nothing sacred.
Growing up on the mean streets of London, he clawed his way to the top of a criminal empire with nothing but sheer force of will and the determination to need no one.
Then he met Jenna Carver, and all bets were off — until the day she walked out of his life without a backward glance.
Leaving him was the hardest thing she’d ever done.
As a kid, Jenna knew how people looked at her. Like she was stupid. Worthless. Poor. So she spent her life working to become someone else. Then she met Farrell Black, and their all-consuming passion blew a hole in everything she thought she knew about herself.
Until she was forced to make a terrible choice.
Now Jenna is back in London for her father's funeral, desperate to avoid the one man who can banish her hard-earned reason in favor of red-hot ecstasy. But when her father’s death is tied to an abuse of power at the highest levels, she has no choice but to ask Farrell for help.
As they work together to find answers to a puzzle that could have dangerous implications, desire threatens to undo them both — and forces Jenna to choose between keeping the secret of a lifetime and having the one man who can command her body and soul.
I need more!!!
Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. The way it's written between both of the main characters makes you never want to put it down and before you know it, it only took you a day to read it. There were some parts where my heart beat was racing and parts where I wanted to slap some sense into the main character but now I seriously can't wait till April when the second book comes out. I already pre-ordered. If you liked the Mob Boss books, you'll love this one! It's full of hard decisions, adventure, and lust that makes your blood boil. I love Michelle's books!
Hot Mob Man
What is it with Michelle St. James and her HOT Mob men? Ahhh... I fell hard for Farrell Black in Savage. I honestly was not a big fan of him when we met him in Ruthless (Mob Boss #1). Although he is cold, dangerous, lethal and downright closed off, we see a loving, giving, protective man with a soul when he is with Jenna Carver, his only and true love. Jenna never saw Farrell coming. When their paths collided one night at a pub, neither expected their to be an explosive connection. One that shattered both of their defenses, allow their hearts to fill with love. Jenna knew that Farrell lived a dangerous life and excepted it until she knew it was too dangerous for the life growing inside her. Leaving behind the man she loved, she fled London with her secret to New York.
5 Years later, and Jenna was back in London for her fathers funeral. The place that held so many memories, good ones and bad ones. Memories of him and the feelings she tried so hard to forget, but that was easier said than done. Farrell was bitter and mad, mad that Jenna left him. Saying goodbye through a letter. So when he went to pay his respects, he couldn't deny what he felt when he saw her again. All his anger turned to lust. She looked the same, but there was something different about her. Jenna fought her attraction to him, even when he made it clear that he still wanted her. She had Lily to think about now, the reason she left him years ago. But when she discovers items hidden in her father's jacket sleeve, she knows only one person who can help her, Farrell. Together they piece together what the items mean while Farrell reclaims Jenna as his. As truths are uncovered, danger lurks in the shadows threatening everything Jenna worked so hard to separate herself from, and the secret she kept from Farrell. Could it be Jenna's persistence to find out what her father knew that ends up putting Lily in danger? Will Jenna finally think with her heart? Will Farrell learn about his daughter?
Great job Michelle! Can't wait to see what is going to happen next.
Love love love
Okay, I was a bit hesitant to read this because you don't find out much about Farrell in the mob boss series (nico's book). But then you read about him in Luca's book but you're so distracted by what's going on that you miss him. Well I absolutely love this book. This is by far my favorite book of the whole series including Nico's and Luca's. You're writing style has me getting to know the characters and it keeps getting better and better.
But I digress. Farrell Black met Jenna at a bar an was completely taken to her. He started off at the bottom of the "mob" but now he's the leader of the London portion. Jenna was happy with him, she didn't have a very happy childhood or stable one. She ends up pregnant and is afraid the child will not have the security she needs with Farrell since he's involved in mob business. She leaves him without him knowing she's pregnant and moves to New York. Fast forward five years and she's back in London to bury her father. She can't avoid Farrell especially when she seeks his help to uncover her dad's death.
Overall, I loved the storyline, I even liked the ending and can't wait for the other books. I liked this book better than the previous ones. And after hearing he's supposed to look like Tom hardy only taller! Ahhh my man!
