Emily Reynolds, estranged sister to Dane Reynolds, President of the Savage Angels MC, has just lost her father. He was not a caring man and inflicted suffering on his family. Dane abandoned her and her mother years ago, leaving them alone to deal with a brutal man who never showed any love or mercy. Emily wants Dane to feel the pain she felt, she wants him to suffer as she did and decides to make the long drive to see him.
Salvatore Agostino, captain in the Abruzzi crime family is also on his way to see Dane Reynolds. A ruthless businessman, he is fiercely loyal to his family and his men. A chance encounter brings him face to face with Emily.
These two meet and their attraction grows into a love that neither could have anticipated.
Will they be able to overcome the turmoil that awaits them or will their love be destroyed by forces beyond their control?
I am completely overwhelmed. My core is on fire and I want so much to kiss him, to touch him. I feel sparks of electricity shoot through every fiber in my body and every nerve ending is screaming for release. I want his hands on me, all over me. “Amare?”
I put my hands on his chest and push him away. He’s too close, making it hard to form a single thought. I take two steps to the side to put some distance between us so I can speak like a human, not a lust induced zombie. “Yes, they towed my car and it’s in their lot. I haven’t really spoken to them about it yet. I kind of fell asleep on them…”
His face clouds over and he says, “You kind of fell asleep on them? What. Does. That. Mean?” He pauses between each word and growls them at me.
“Jonas took me to see Doc Jordan and he gave me something for the pain, but because I hadn’t slept in days it made me sleepy. I think he ended up carrying me to their clubhouse.” I realize how all this must sound. If someone told me that exact same story, I would be thinking the worst.
“Did they touch you, Amare?” he growls at me, his eyes blazing with anger.
“No, no, no! In fact, Jonas put a guard on my door so no one would go near me. Not that they would. I was safe, Sal.” Something crosses his face and he stares at me so intently that I look away and stare at the floor. He moves back into my space and lifts my head up. “Thank you for getting me coffee. Let’s go have breakfast and I’m buying. I think I shall keep you in my sights to make sure nothing else happens to you. I have never met a woman who allows herself to get into so many dangerous situations, in such a short space in time. You, my Amare, are a handful.” He moves away from me and does up his shirt, then grabs his jacket. He opens the door to his room and extends his arm. “Shall we?” he asks, offering me a smile that reveals his dimple. My core clenches again and I have to fight the urge to throw myself at him.
Savage Fire is book 2 in the Savage Angel’s MC series and it picked up right where we were left off in the first. Savage Fire is a shorter read than the first book and is filled with danger, kidnapping, dirty talking bikers, a really dirty and hot Italian Mafia captain and a sweet young woman trying to come to terms with her life. Dane, Kat and the MC are moving on and coming to terms with the betrayal and stalking of Kat.
The author tells this story in several POV’s and I love being able to hear from different characters. However, for me at times I found it confusing because there are quite a few we hear from. This may appeal to others but for me all I really was interested in was hearing from the two main characters. I did appreciate the POV’s from the bad guys and getting to know their thoughts and plans. It definitely added more suspense to the story, I just would have liked less of them and more of main characters.
In this book we meet Emily, Dane’s young sister, the one that he has not seen since he left home at 15 years of age. Emily is a character that many can relate to. She has been abused by her father for years, her mother died years ago and a brother who left and has never looked back. After her father’s death, Emily has reached her breaking point. She decides to travel to Tourmaline to the Savage Angel’s compound to confront her brother. She is angry that he just left and never came back for her and left her there by herself to take care of her their father. Emily’s is not thinking straight, she is running on very little sleep and along the way trouble finds her. Luckily for her she is saved twice by a gorgeous man.
Salvatore Agostino, god I love him. He is the captain of a large crime family and is headed to the Savage Angels MC to find out how and why they lost out on money. So here is thing, Sal is a tough guy, he does not hide his true nature and something about the sweet, innocent and wide eye Emily has him feeling all kinds of protectiveness. Something has never felt before. Once in Tourmaline, things are not as clear cut as it seems for Sal and the MC.
Dane is both shocked and happy to see his sister Emily, but he is also concerned with how she reacts to Sal. He is trying to figure out why Emily is in town and most of all why she is with Sal. One thing that shocks and scares Dane is Emily’s anger and hostility towards him. He never wanted to leave her behind all those years ago but learning everything she has gone through leaves him feeling both guilty and angry. With the help of Sal and the MC they slowly discover they have been betrayed and everyone is in danger.
The author did an amazing job with the plot in this story. It is fast paced and full of action. I loved that we got two very alpha possessive men who are not willing to let anything happen to their women. It was great watching not only Sal but Dane possessiveness towards Emily. Neither wanted her out of their sight. The connection and chemistry between Emily and Sal was written so well, it felt so natural. Both Sal and Emily have not had people around that they could trust. Sal lived a hard life and there was always someone out to take him down. Emily never had anyone that took care of her or wanted her until now. The author did an amazing job showing how Emily came out of her shell. She becomes stronger, tougher and more determined not to be a victim again. We get to see how Dane and Kat are doing in their relationship and if you read the first book then you know Kat is a feisty and strong woman. Can Sal and Dane, keep Emily and the MC safe? Will the danger and threat take away the only thing Emily has ever wanted in life, Sal? The Savage Angels MC and Sal will be betrayed, there will be death and retribution, but who will be left standing in the end?
