Review: Savage (The Kingwood Duet #1) by S.L. Scott

Goodreads Synopsis:

Welcome to the mysterious world of the rich and the damned in this gritty, modern day fairy tale. Two star-crossed lovers will either find their destiny or meet their fate in a world where demons come in the form of familiar faces and pawns aren’t just players, but deadly.

She was my destiny.

I was her downfall.

We were a match made in hell.

But when we were together, that hell was pure heaven.

The moment I laid eyes on her, I knew she would pay the price for my sins. I wasn’t much older than she was, but old enough to know better. Old enough to know she would be good for me and I was bad for her. But I pursued her anyway. Back then I had hope that maybe she could change my future.

Maybe together we could change our fate . . .

Chick and Brain Rating 5 out of 5

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review

Oh mylanta! There are not words for this book. This is the first time I have had the pleasure of reading anything by S.L. Scott but it will for sure not be my last. She has officially become the newest member of my cliffy ladies club, and trust me she is in good company.

Savage focuses mainly on the story of Alexander and Sarah Jane who knew that they were destined to be together upon their first meeting. The story mainly takes places over about three years, Alexander has been keeping secrets from Sarah Jane and she has had enough. What Sarah Jane does not realize is that these secrets reach far beyond anything that she could possibly imagine. Alexander has been keeping them from her in order to protect her, but what neither of them realize is that these very secrets may possibly destroy them in the process.

S.L. Scott writes an amazing story that grips your attention from the first sentence. We are unable to not be captivated by these characters. We are along for the ride in this story as we watch them grow and develop, specifically Sarah Jane, as they find themselves as individuals but also in their relationship with each other. Although the main focus of the story is supposed to be the love story between Alexander and Sarah Jane, there is a whole separate plot line that is important to the development of their relationship, but does not overshadow them at all. Scott writes out beautifully developed characters that are well-rounded and are indispensable to the story, even the ones that we come to hate passionately. Once we reach the climax of the story we are in for the ride of a life time and do not know what to expect next, Scott ensures that we are unable to predict the outcome and are constantly on our toes.

Oh not to mention that ending! This story should come with a tissue warning. I for one am waiting impatiently for the release of Savior in August to find out what happens next.


Until next time,
