    I'm so happy to have Savage's story begin. He has made one of the biggest impressions for a side character in several series from this author. He has such a huge personality that you can't help but want to know more about him.Savage is one of those men who exasperate you so much that you end up loving him because of it. He manages to joke around at the most inappropriate times, bringing levity when things get too serious. That has endeared him to many in this fictional world, and with the I'm so happy to have Savage's story begin. He has made one of the biggest impressions for a side character in several series from this author. He has such a huge personality that you can't help but want to know more about him.Savage is one of those men who exasperate you so much that you end up loving him because of it. He manages to joke around at the most inappropriate times, bringing levity when things get too serious. That has endeared him to many in this fictional world, and with the readers.As much of an inappropriate jokester he can be, he is also a very deadly enemy. His thirst for violence sits just below the surface. He's a good guy who will go to great lengths to help anyone in danger. It's quite the combination in a man.I have been so curious about his past. I know he has loved before and still pines, but never knew what happened. We finally get to meet the woman who has made such an impression on Savage. I was surprised to find out the was the reason they are no longer together. I'm looking forward to learning more about Candace and what makes her special to Savage. She has already shown that she is no fool and is just as honorable as Savage is. She loves him just as fiercely as he loves her but they have a lot to work through.

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.EXCERPTMy arms slide under his tuxedo jacket, wrapping his body, muscles flexing under my touch. The heat of his body burning into mine, sunshine warming the ice in my heart he created when he left. And that’s what scares me. Just this quickly, I’m consumed by him, the princess and the warrior, as he used to call us. My man. My hero. And those are dangerous things for me to feel, so very dangerous. Because they’re not real. He showed me that they aren’t real. “This means nothing,” I say, tearing my mouth from his, my hand planting on the hard wall of his chest. “This is sex. Just sex. This changes nothing.”“Baby, we were never just sex.”“We are not the us of the past,” I say, grabbing his lapel. “I just need—you owe me this. You owe me a proper—”“Everything,” he says. “In ways you don’t understand, but, baby, you will. I promise you, you will.” I don’t try to understand that statement and I really don’t get the chance. His mouth is back on my mouth.The very idea of forever with this man is one part perfect, another part absolute pain. Because there is no forever with this man. But he doesn’t give me time to object to a fantasy I’ll never own, that I’m not sure I want to try and own again. I don’t need forever. I need right now. I need him. I sink back into the kiss and he’s ravenous. Claiming me. Taking me. Kissing the hell out of me and God, I love it. God, I need it. I need him.

    WooHoo! We finally have Savage!!! I’ve been waiting for this book since I first met him and I am absolutely thrilled at what this author has created. ’Killing and scowling rank high on my list of ways I prove that I’m charming.’ Years ago, Savage and Candace had a wonderful relationship that was everything to them both. But something happened to cause Savage to never return from deployment and that decision broke both of their hearts. Now, he’s back in San Antonio and determined to protect the WooHoo! We finally have Savage!!! I’ve been waiting for this book since I first met him and I am absolutely thrilled at what this author has created. ’Killing and scowling rank high on my list of ways I prove that I’m charming.’ Years ago, Savage and Candace had a wonderful relationship that was everything to them both. But something happened to cause Savage to never return from deployment and that decision broke both of their hearts. Now, he’s back in San Antonio and determined to protect the only woman he’s ever loved.While Savage is still snarky, brutally honest, and full throttle when it comes to taking care of business, the situation he finds himself in doesn’t allow for much of the Savage humor we’ve come to expect from him. Instead, we see how he was initially broken, what resulted in his unique journey down life’s path, and how deeply he feels towards Candace. Even as he battles himself at times, he’s in full alpha protection mode and I loved everything I learned about him. ’I was a ----ing paid mercenary and she’s the angel that I have always known deserves better than the devil I’ve become. But devil that I am, I can’t seem to care anymore. Not after I tasted her again. Not after I touched her again. I have to have her. She will be mine again.’ This book sets up a wonderfully twisted, mysterious plot that Savage and Candace, as well as some of the Walker Security characters, must unravel quickly. The bad guy is pretty obvious, but this author is known to throw in a few surprises so I’m not holding fast to any of my current conjectures. With a relatively fast pace, lots of drama caused by both Savage and Candace’s relationship issues as well as the mystery they are working on, this book kept me completely engaged and unable to put it down. The steam absolutely sizzles between these two characters and there was never a doubt that they belonged together. How they find their happy ever after is going to be interesting and with a cliffhanger that had me cursing the author, I’m antsy to get the next installment asap. Dual POVSafe (view spoiler)[8 yrs separation - both h/H with others during that time; h is engaged but there are some extreme extenuating circumstances surrounding the engagement therefore I was okay with the fact that she has sex with H during this time - her fiancee is also cheating on her but she does not have any feelings for him (hide spoiler)]Triggers (view spoiler)[no apparent triggers (hide spoiler)]

But, most of all, I hate that I have to wait! How could you?!?I have waited to see what LRJ was going to do with Savage. He’s always been intriguing to me. I always felt that his gruff exterior was hiding a teddy bear inside. Granted, a teddy bear that could probably rip your head off with one move, but, a softy, nonetheless. He’s proving me right and wrong and I am loving every time he comes off with one of his off-the-wall remarks or tries to shut down his “team”. I love how he goes from hard to soft … how he could love one moment and threaten to kill anyone who stands in his way of his goal the next. I love how much he loves his Candy.If anyone deserves to be angry, have hatred run through her blood, it’s Candace. She was ruined by Rick Savage and now she has no other choice but to trust him again. All she knows is that he left her, he broke her and left her to pick up the pieces. All she knew was what was in the Dear Candace letter he wrote her. But, now she knows the whole story and, despite everything, she loves him. Just as much as she did 8 years ago. Things are complicated and being made more complex with the more she finds out … about Rick, about Gabriel, about her father. She knows where she belongs. She knows who she loves. Now, to figure out how to get Rick to understand that she doesn’t think he’s a killer and get out of the mess that she’s in.Love. It. That’s the only thing to say about Savage Hunger. I have loved every one of LRJ’s series but, this may be my favorite. I guess because I have been looking forward to seeing the true Rick Savage for so long. And, she isn’t disappointing me in the least. The story is exciting, interesting, intriguing and so very Rick Savage – brash and hot. Lisa Renee Jones hit it out of the park with Savage Hunger. Now, she needs to get me Savage Burn ASAP. I need to know ….Review copy provided for a voluntary review.

    Candace Marks and Rick Savage used to be in love. She was planning on the whole shebang. Then he left her with a note and a heart shattered into a million tiny pieces. Now she's in an unhealthy, unbearable relationship with nothing left to live for, when who barrels back into her life but the man who broke her all those years ago. Can Candace steel her heart against Savage? Not if he has anything to say about it!

Unfortunately, he broke her heart when he did so. But he's back now and he's got the skills (and the alpha tendencies) to protect her. If only she'd give him a second chance. She can work out her anger, work out her broken heart on him. He's more than happy to let her... I always love Lisa's heroes, they're usually alpha with big hearts, and Savage is certainly no exception. He's exceptional - super protective, vulnerable inside, and alpha af. I loved getting his backstory, as heartbreaking as it is, and I loved seeing these two realize (admit) that they were still madly in love with each other. I can't wait for Savage Burn now!

It was addicting, exciting and had me on pins and needles to learn more about what was really going on. Full disclosure, you won't know almost anything reguarding the suspense plotline in this book, it ends in a major cliffhanger and it's part one/three. Savage Hunger is obviously, a romantic suspense, and also a second chance romance about two characters who have been apart for eight long years and now have the chance to be together again in the midst of the danger surrounding them and their loved ones. They still have a lot to work out about how they ended before, about who they really are and what is happening in their lives now. Savage is addictive but also a bit annoying with his back and forth.. truth is he's scared about putting the love of his life in danger but with all that is going on.. he just needs to give in and be there for Candance. These two are sexy and emotional and you just know that even though they were apart for eight years and a lot happened, they still love as each other as much as they did before.I love the little bit where we got to see how they met and got together. That was such a meet cute. I cannot wait to see where life takes them in book 2. I feel like there's so much yet still to be uncovered, secrets, lies, deceit. It's gonna be a bumpy ride I'm sure and I'm looking forward to it!➳ARC kindly provided by author, in exchange for an honest review.➳ Order at: Amazon UK ⁕ Amazon US ➳ Follow me on: Blog ⁕ Instagram ⁕ Facebook ⁕ Twitter
