But you see, baby, I stayed away for a reason. I knew if I ever touched you again, I’d want all of you. I’d want to own you and I wouldn’t give a shit about the price. So, yes, I’m going to spank you.”“You think me submitting during sex means you own me?” she challenges.“One night at a time, baby.”“One night at a time, until you ruin me?” she challenges.“And then some,” I assure her. “There’s no saving you now.” Just to be sure she’s clear on that fact, I scoop her up and start walking.She doesn’t object. She holds onto me. I want to believe she’ll hold on forever, but I’m not sure we’re there yet. Who am I kidding? I know we’re not fucking there yet, which is why we’re not doing this in the kitchen. This isn’t about sex. It’s about us, it’s about our relationship, our connection, the intimacy we have shared, the past come back to life. That means our bedroom.The place we started and ended days together. The place we talked for hours. The place where we did naughty, kinky things to each other. Okay, I did naughty, kinky things to her more than she did to me. But it was here where the most intense moments were shared.Once there, I find a small lamp by her bedside alight, casting the room in a dim yellow hue, shadows dancing on the walls with our movements. Shadows that taunt me with everything I’ve hidden from Candace and can no longer hide if I want to make this work. And I do.I set her down on the floor in front of the mattress, her back to my front. My hand is on her belly, my erection at her hip. My lips at her ear. “Do you think you’re ready to trust me again?”Her hand goes to my hand as if she’s trying to control where it goes, to hold it there, and yet, she leans into me. “We’ll find out now, won’t we?”

I have to admit that I’m jealous of his complete commitment to her and his absolute all in he gives her.The story is on fire both in the bedroom and out of the bedroom. Savage is a damn sexy hunk that leaves nothing to the imagination!!Hot as hell but still more to come in book 3. That’s frustrating but at least we get one more round with the Savage. Jones leaves you wishing this wasn’t pure fiction.* copy received for review considerationfull review - https://amidlifewife.com/savage-burn-...

    So much going on. Rick is balancing on a very thin thread trying to keep Candace and her father alive against some very skilled men, as well as keeping her away from her slime ball fiancé. And what a slime ball he is! Ugh. That man needs to go down. He's also trying to prove to Candace that he won't be leaving her again, so we get a really good look into them being very honest about things.

I really hope that means he is making an appearance in book 3.

    Holy heck! This author is killing me! Hes not good or bad, right or wrong. Hes a man, flawed and perfect all at once. With so many twists and turns as the players in this game are jockeying for position, I couldnt put this one down! Savage and Candace are learning to trust each other to stay, no matter what the future holds, even as they are fighting to protect those they love...all while bringing down the men who put their lives at risk.I loved seeing this couple work through their issues, new Holy heck! This author is killing me! ’He’s not good or bad, right or wrong. He’s a man, flawed and perfect all at once.’ With so many twists and turns as the players in this game are jockeying for position, I couldn’t put this one down! Savage and Candace are learning to trust each other to stay, no matter what the future holds, even as they are fighting to protect those they love...all while bringing down the men who put their lives at risk.I loved seeing this couple work through their issues, new and old. Candace is such a strong heroine and more than capable of handling a man like Savage. I respected the heck of her ability to stand up to him and demand what she wants and expects from him. There is a bit of push and pull as they go at it, but with each push they come back together all the stronger. ”I can’t be a princess in a glass tower. I have to be --”I cup her head and kiss her before I say, “A princess by my side with a Sig in her purse?”“Exactly,” she says. “One I know how to use.”“Now you’re just trying to get me hot and botherd, baby.” We not only get our tough guy Savage back again, but we see his wicked humor on display in some wonderful one liners as only Savage can provide. I kinda missed that about him in book one but then again, he was floundering a bit with making Candace accept him. Now, despite their relationship still being a tad shaky, he’s back in full force and ready to do whatever it takes to protect her. ”Fear makes me want to fight. For you. I want to fight for you and us. I want to fight every war you face with you. And you are better with me. But I am also so much better with you. Because we’re better together.” This isn’t loaded with a lot of action but unveils itself in layer after layer of suspense as all the players take position. Of course, through it all is the undeniable chemistry and the sexual tension between Savage and Candace. These two absolutely sizzle when in the same room together. And just as everything seems to be coming together, plans are laid out and everyone is moving into place, we get the monster of cliffhangers! Of course, I knew we would but I never saw it ending this way. And now to hurry up and wait for the final book in this trilogy! Dual POVSafe (view spoiler)[no ow drama; om is still h’s fiancee who she is trying to find the goods on and send to jail - they are never even in the same town in this book so nothing physical happens between them - remember, the h hates om (hide spoiler)]Triggers (view spoiler)[no apparent triggers (hide spoiler)]

    We start right back up where we left off in Savage Hunger. Savage is hell-bent on protecting Candace and will do anything he has to. We learn more about what Savage has gone through in the past and why he stayed away from Candace. We do have to deal with more of Candace's fiance who is not the nicest man and her father whom we don't know is innocent or not. But with Candace and Savage interactions, we get to have some love on the side with all of the intense action and twists and turns going on. We start right back up where we left off in Savage Hunger.

    Savage is doing what he does best - protecting. Protecting his one and only love, Candace.

    I still stand by my statement that there is way more to this story than meets the eye and I am still very captivated with what is happening, has happened and will happen, but this particular chunk of story moved waaaay slower than I expected. Its not a bad mark of the story itself, but the author could have condensed/sped this part up quite a bit and still delivered the plot points that we got. In my opinion that is .

And on that note, I have to tell you something …. Wait for it …. Just kidding lol I can’t say anything *insert evil laugh* just kidding again LOL Here’s something I can say … Savage Burn may not progress the journey of Candace and Ravage very far, but it does give us a huge perspective into Savage himself. The who/why of him is what the focus of this leg of the journey really is. There’s a bit too much of the whole one step forward two steps back thing for my taste right now and the push/pull between Candace and Savage was a bit much but they burned up my kindle with their chemistry just the same!So, I’m still intrigued, but not as hipped up as I was when I read Savage Hunger. I’m feeling this could have easily been a duet, but maybe not *shrug* We shall see when the author gives us the final leg in their journey with Savage Love!! Stay tuned …..

From the moment this former Green Beret and the General’s daughter first met eight years earlier, their love was inevitable. But after breaking his beloved fiancée’s heart while off on a covert black ops assignment they were forced to live separate lives. Only to be reunited in book one when Savage was brought back into her orbit and discovered the girl he loved and left behind was in grave peril. Book two picks up right where book one left off, with a literal BANG, and Savage is more determined than ever to protect his ladylove from their enemies. While a debt that was called in originally thrust him back into her life, there is NOTHING that can keep this ferocious alpha protector away from her now. But he burned a lot of bridges in his time away and regaining Candace’s trust and forgiveness is still not a fait accompli. As they work on rekindling their relationship, passion and danger reaches a fever pitch. Now it’s not just her slimy former fiancé, Gabriel Manning, who poses a risk but skeletons from Savage’s closet too. With the stakes higher than ever, can this unstoppable duo remain united through thick and thin, or will they be at a critical disadvantage when they find themselves caught in the crossfire?MY MUSINGS: SAVAGE BURN was absolutely SENSATIONAL! Lisa Renee Jones delivered the goods in this second chapter, penning a dynamic, smolderingly seductive, and wildly entertaining romantic suspense tale teeming with palpable emotion, torrid passion and twists and turns galore!Gah. Rick Savage is so big and powerful and mouthwateringly alpha he RUINED me for all other book boyfriends! With each subsequent book, I just keep falling harder and harder for this badass bodyguard. Talk about a man of many facets! I mean, he makes me giggle one minute with his outlandishly crass wisecracks but then can slay my heart with his raw aching vulnerability a moment later! And I adore how he comes across as a cold-blooded killer when facing down his foes yet then morphs into a big ol softie when it comes to Candace, his one true love. And while I thought I had a handle on what makes him tick, as this current story unfolds, I discovered that there’s much more to him than meets the eye. And as we begin to see chinks in this menacing ex-mercenary’s iron clad suit of armor, we gain much insight into not only his checkered past but into the inner recesses of his tormented psyche. And as in book one, Candace, the beautiful, beloved woman he would annihilate anyone to protect, brings out such an aching tenderness in this magnificent beast that you will be left SWOONING! In turn, his smart and savvy, and outwardly fragile, other half proves yet again to be more than worthy of his complete and utter devotion. She’s the sweet balm to his wounded soul. And is more than capable of battling their adversaries right alongside her man!While this book moves at a more leisurely pace than the first installment, there’s no shortage of emotional intensity, red hot chemistry, edge of your seat drama or sizzling hot encounters. And HOLY SMOKES! I just could not get enough of this combustible couple. The sparks between these two are so flammable you will be fanning yourself off, and I felt that Savage’s primal animal magnetism coupled with his foul-mouthed caveman persona played off well against Candace’s sweet and sophisticated yet fiery nature. Sighhhh….their high-octane interactions made my girly bits quiver and my heart skip a beat. But will Savage be able to keep his "Candy baby" safe AND reclaim the only woman who stands a chance at taming the demons raging inside of him? As for the overarching mystery plot, there are many players thrown into the mix which makes the suspense angle even more exhilarating! It’s truly a race against the clock for Savage and Candace as the danger escalates. He refuses to let the sins of his past to harm Candace, or to allow her to be a pawn in a power struggle involving a nefarious U.S. Government society that hits close to home for them both . These dirty rotten scoundrels have no gumption of wielding their influence to gain the upper hand but…EEEP…this is RICK SAVAGE they are dealing with! He is a ruthless man of action and NOT to be underestimated, especially when his beloved woman’s welfare is at stake. Targeting Candace and her father may be the worst tactical move those dimwits ever made and he will neutralize these thorns in his side at all costs. Still, it’s anyone’s guess how this lethal power struggle will play out and how Candace’s despicable “fiancé” factors into it all.We are still left with more questions than answers by book’s end, but that’s to be expected since Savage and Candace’s story is not yet complete. And, of course, the Walker crew can always be counted on to jump into the fray when their elite services are needed! As for the ending? OMFG…once again. LRJ penned a cliffy that left us GASPING! And chomping at the bit for SAVAGE LOVE!BOTTOM LINE: SAVAGE BURN, a story of love and betrayal, secrets and lies, treachery and sweet triumph. This scorching hot page turner incinerated my heart and whetted my appetite for so much more!

For this, they will not survive. I’m back home to save her and win her back, no matter what the cost.•••••••••••REVIEW: 4.5 stars--SAVAGE BURN is the second instalment in Lisa Renee Jones’ contemporary, adult SAVAGE erotic, romantic suspense trilogy focusing on former Green Beret and Walker Security specialist Rick Savage, and architect Candace Marks. The SAVAGE trilogy is a spin-off from the author’s NAKED and Dirty Rich series with the appearance of several characters from the author’s Walker Security series. SAVAGE BURN should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events and cliff hanger of book one SAVAGE HUNGER.SOME BACKGROUND: Eight years earlier Rick Savage destroyed Candace Marks’ heart when he sent a ‘Dear Candace’ letter while on assignment overseas but what Candace never knew was that Rick Savage was recruited by a covert CIA black ops unit, a unit whose former members are now in prestigious and powerful places in the US government. When a debt is called in, Rick Savage must face the inevitable including the woman whose heart he destroyed.Told from dual first person perspectives (Rick and Candace) SAVAGE BURN follows Candace and Rick as Rick must come to terms with the threats against the woman he loves. Having stayed away for close to eight years, a debt-owed brings Rick back into Candace’s life, a debt Candace could potentially pay with her life. As Rick’s past begins to target the woman he loves, Candace must face the possibility that her life as she knew it is spiralling out of control. What ensues is the rebuilding relationship between Rick and Candace, and the fall-out as the number of players in the game of revenge grows exponentially as the stakes get higher and more dangerous. SAVAGE BURN is a story of secrets and lies; sins of the past; issues of trust, power and control. We discover Candace is a pawn in a game that reaches the highest level of the US government; and Rick Savage knows that his past will do anything to destroy the woman he loves. The premise is engaging, intriguing and energetic; the romance is erotic, passionate and intense; the characters are colorful, dynamic, powerful and strong. SAVAGE BURN ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.Copy supplied for reviewwww.thereadingcafe.com

    ACK! Another cliffhanger, but that was to be expected, after all this is a trilogy and only book two. Savage is still trying to protect Candace and her father while the Walker gang gathers info on Gabriel and Tag. Who will come out standing in the end of this roller coaster of a ride? We will have to wait for the next book to find out! **Received this ARC for review**

    Savage Burn by Lisa Renee Jones is the second story in her latest series, The Savage Trilogy . Picking up right where the cliffhanger left us at the end of book one, Savage Hunger and leading us deeper into the intrigue and conspiracy surrounding Candace, her father, her fiance and the man she actually loves, Rick Savage.

Intense and twisted, filled with chemistry and heat, this one ends on another heck of a cliffhanger! Prepare yourself and Enjoy!The Trilogy:

    **FULL REVIEW**First, if you havent read Savage Hunger , stop now. Start from the beginning...dont spoil it for yourself! With that said, this is a spoiler-free review. Maybe its just me, maybe its just how trilogies roll, but the second book always serves as a bridge between the beginning that pulls you in and the ending that gives the answers you so desperately seek.A lot of world building, story building, and chemistry in this book...we learn a little of what we crave to know, but the way it **FULL REVIEW**First, if you haven’t read Savage Hunger , stop now.

Maybe it’s just me, maybe it’s just how trilogies roll, but the second book always serves as a bridge between the beginning that pulls you in and the ending that gives the answers you so desperately seek.A lot of world building, story building, and chemistry in this book...we learn a little of what we crave to know, but the way it ends let’s me know how much there’s still go.I cannot wait for the last book...Lisa, you have some explaining to do!!Following Candace and Rick as they work with Walker Security to find answers, thwart threats, and basically stay alive is the thrill we look for in Jones’ books. Working on their trust issues and growth as a couple plays another key role in this book, and there’s no shortage of action (if you know what I mean *wink*).The banter between characters is laugh-out-loud funny, and the mystery to be solved is true LRJ fashion. Just when you think you have things figured out, another puzzle piece hits the table and it doesn’t seem to fit...until it does, leaving you with more questions and burning for answers. Bread crumbs I tell you, bread crumbs...and they’re delicious!**4 Bridge the Gap, Stars**

    This series is getting Nasty in one of the best ways. We all love Savage and we all want the best for him since it seems as though hes got the full package. The ability to protect, loyalty, hes beyond intelligent, and hes sexy. Candace saw that once years and years ago, and throughout the first book of this series we saw that she still sees it big time.We were left off from the first installment with these two facing Tag an adversary that cant win against Savage in a clean fight or a dirty This series is getting Nasty in one of the best ways. We all love Savage and we all want the best for him since it seems as though he’s got the full package. The ability to protect, loyalty, he’s beyond intelligent, and he’s sexy. Candace saw that once years and years ago, and throughout the first book of this series we saw that she still sees it – big time.We were left off from the first installment with these two facing Tag – an adversary that can’t win against Savage in a clean fight or a dirty one, but he tries and tries and tries. Using Candace as leverage, using her father as leverage and we see right off the bat in this book, using Savage’s father. That doesn’t work, but what it does show us is that there’s so much more to the story that we can’t wait to dive into.Throughout this second book, we see the Walker institution come through big time, and i see EXACTLY what our amazing author is doing here with the introduction of a few new guys. We’re getting to see exactly how she plans to keep this whole group of series going. it’s smart and now i can’t wait to learn about these new guys.Anyway – back to Candace and Savage. They are on the run again, hoping to figure out what’s going on and how to come out of everything alive before it’s too late, and it seems like every time they think they have made progress, a new obstacle pops up. The mystery of where Candace’s father is, and if he’s alive. The mystery of where Savage’s mission buddy Max is and wondering if it’s related. Wondering where the hiding spot is for all the evidence that could shut things down in a legal way. ….On top of all that though is the notion that Candace and Savage still have so much history between them. They were engaged once and had a life planned out that Rick had to run away from to protect her. He’s back with NO intention of leaving her again, but that’s really hard for Candace to believe since she can only base her choices on what she’s seen so far. It’s hard for her to still love him so much but still fear that this will be a broken record.What we do get to enjoy is EXACTLY what our author LRJ does best – the hot chemistry that leaps off the pages so high that smoke detectors go off. There’s passion because of such a deep connection that’s so clear and intense4. I love seeing the guy that we all knew Savage was come to life and even with the INSANE cliff hanger at the end, i want to hope for the best here. We know that everyone will NOT end up alive, and i’m really excited to see who ends p with us

    Well if I thought that the first book was good, this one tops that one in spades, as far as the story line. There is something that does bother me in this book, and it was the same with the first book, but I just can't quite put my finger on it. Nevertheless, this book continues the story line from Savage Hunger and has Rick and Walker Security doing everything they can to keep Candace's father safe, to keep her safe, to take down her fiance' and to end the man that has put Rick in the position Well if I thought that the first book was good, this one tops that one in spades, as far as the story line. There is something that does bother me in this book, and it was the same with the first book, but I just can't quite put my finger on it. Nevertheless, this book continues the story line from Savage Hunger and has Rick and Walker Security doing everything they can to keep Candace's father safe, to keep her safe, to take down her fiance' and to end the man that has put Rick in the position that he is in. As they continue to find the links between all of the players, a new threat comes into play. This one is from Rick's past and he's out for blood. This story line again is intriguing, exciting, mysterious and filled with at heat that makes you squirm. Candace, being the army brat that she is, is stronger than Rick and the team give her credit for, although there are times when I can see where they think that, then she straightens her spine and gives them lip, letting them know in no uncertain terms that she will no be left out of the loop. Again, this story will capture your attention, carry you right along with the characters and it will not release you until....yep...that stupid cliffie wall is right there waiting for you to slam full bodied into. Oh and it's a big one too!I loved this book, I love the story and the characters and yes...I cannot wait until the next book comes out so I can find out what happens to Rick, Candace, her father and the rest of Rick's team. Someone's going down, someone's going to die. The question is; who??I highly recommend this great read!

    So as per usual for Savage, this second book has action and secrets in abundance! Savage, Candace, and men from Walker Security delve deeper into the mystery surrounding Candaces father, her fiancé and a nemesis who wants to use Savage as a weapon. Putting their heads together they find hidden information in a book owned by Candaces mother. The information they find suggests that there was more to Candaces mother's death. Was it a combat-related accident or actually murder. It seems there is So as per usual for Savage, this second book has action and secrets in abundance!

Putting their heads together they find hidden information in a book owned by Candace’s mother. The information they find suggests that there was more to Candace’s mother's death. Was it a combat-related accident or actually murder. It seems there is also more to Candace’s father pushing Savage into the military. Almost as if he had a plan all along for Savage. The information leads Savage and the team into an unexpected new direction and its not a good one.More secrets and lies come to the surface putting Savage and Candace’s relationship with each other, their friends and their fathers front and center. Oh and did I mention, there is an old enemy now added to the mix that seeks revenge on Savage by way of killing him.Our couple is hit left and right with so many emotions as they work through trust issues to find their way to be together. Candace still believes he’ll leave. Savage isn't sure how to stay or how to love her like she deserves. But they are fighters and each day and each new obstacle they grow strength in each other.Personally, I love love love Savage’s character. He is such a smarta**. He, Candace and the entire gang are such wonderful characters and LRJ gives you everything you need without going overboard. The relationship between Savage and the men of Walker Security is very strong and hilarious! I can’t wait to see how this ends!

    Savage is the story I have most been looking forward to reading since his introduction in Lisa Renee Jones' earlier books featuring Walker Security. He is the one sent in to deal with challenging situations and protect the high priority clients. He is such a character that already has endeared himself to me.Savage Burn is the second instalment of his story, picking up exactly where 'Savage Hunger' left off, so if you haven't read already then you need to check it out.Savage is trying to unravel Savage is the story I have most been looking forward to reading since his introduction in Lisa Renee Jones' earlier books featuring Walker Security.

One thing is clear, he will do anything to protect Candace: the only woman he has truly loved. Her father, his father, his old boss, an old enemy and a dirty politician are all somehow involved. The only people that he can truly trust are the men and women of Walker Security and he must fight to come out on top. In typical Lisa Renee Jones style, she leaves us on a cliffhanger and wanting more. April can't come quick enough!I loved the twists and turns of this book that kept me hooked and on the edge of my seat biting my nails. I loved finding out more about Savage and what has brought him to this point. Up until this series he has been somewhat of a mystery. I loved the fact Savage was endearing yet badass as we have come to expect. I also loved Candace for the strong woman that she is and the fact that she can stand up to Savage and give as good back. This was an excellent read through and through.***Reviewed for LBM Book Blog***
