she did and decides to make the long drive to see him.

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?


Review
I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day promotions.

When I read the first book, I was honestly disappointed. Insta-love, biker, romantic suspense things like this aren’t always a hit, and that first book was definitely a miss. Every character had his own POV, which wasn’t really helping the book at all. The base of the story was okay; the author’s intention was clear. It was just sad that it was poorly executed.

On this second book, I purposefully lowered my expectations, so I wouldn’t have far to fall in case the story fell short again. Fortunately, this book is a huge improvement from the first one. There were still so many POVs, but it wasn’t as headache-inducing as the previous one.

Story-wise, this was also more complicated. There’s an Italian crime family, the former heroine’s shady mother, the lying MC member, and the ever-present family drama as well. It was a bit of a circus, but it was a fun circus. I’m glad I did not give up on this series after the disappointment I had with the first book.

Savage Fire turns my opinion of this series and this author around. It’s still not the best biker romance book, but it’s entertaining and steamy, so all’s well I guess. There’s supposed to be a third book which will be released soon. I hope it’s as good one again. I will surely be watching out for that one.

Excerpt

 

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.
