#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan explores uncharted territory in the new Torpedo Ink Motorcycle Club novel.
When Savin “Savage” Pajari and Seychelle Dubois first met, their connection was instant, their attraction undeniable. Their relationship has been full throttle since day one. Even though months have passed, the passion and love between them has only increased.
Savage completely owns what he is: a sadist in the bedroom who can only get off on his partner’s pain. He believes he’s not a good man, but he loves Seychelle with a fierceness that shocks him. He wants all of her, but only if she gives herself freely with eyes wide open.
Seychelle never imagined the lure of mixing pain with pleasure, or how much she’d crave Savage’s darkness. She’s been shaken to her core, but Seychelle is committed to Savage and their life together—even though he’s keeping a piece of himself back. And to truly make their relationship work, he has to give her everything that he is, just as she is doing for him.
Savage knows that what he really needs could break his woman if she isn’t ready. She agreed to come into his world, and he’s not about to give her up. He has to find a way to let her see the monster inside without pushing her away. But the real Savage might be more than Seychelle can bear...and he knows he wouldn’t survive losing her.
Savage Road continues where Annihilation Road left off, so if you haven’t read that one yet, stop and do that!
I will admit I liked Savage more by the end of this book. In Savage Road, we see him actually support Seychelle. Because of his sexual needs, everything in book 1 felt like it was all about him. In this book, Savage starts to make decisions based on what is best for Seychelle. I really struggled with the dark sexual needs of Savage and understanding why Seychelle would accept that when he clearly brought NOTHING to the table for her. Savage Road bridges that gap a bit for me and I was able to look at the relationship more objectively.
There is more action in this book as well, which made it feel more like a Torpedo Ink book. There is trouble in the club, plenty of danger, and that keeps the plot moving. However, there is still LOT of sex to keep things hot. Overall, while I don’t really understand this kink and wouldn’t seek out books with it, I appreciated this love story. I did feel that Annihilation Road and Savage road could be skipped and it wouldn’t impact the rest of the series. The club issues and such aren’t the same as the ones that have been part of the story arc throughout the previous books, so if you want to skip these, you could. There is no movement on the trafficking, or other plot points from previous books.
