Emersyn Sharpe doesn’t belong in our world
In fact, the very last place she should be is with us. But someone is hurting her. We’ve all seen it.
We tried to ignore the warning signs. We tried to trust the people around her.
We tried to believe in her world.
When she nearly died in front of us, we had to act.
We took her.
She doesn’t belong in our world, but I’ll be damned if someone lays a finger on her under my watch.
I’ll kill them first. Now that she’s here… I don’t know if I can let her leave.
I’m Jasper Horan, anyone who tries to take her will have to go through me and my boys.
You’ve been warned.
SAVAGE VANDAL is a full length mature college/new adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. This is a reverse harem novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This is book one in the series.
Savage Vandal is a reverse harem with lots of triggers, so be aware. Emersyn is a beautiful ballerina who has had the crappiest life. It looks perfect from the outside, but she has been abused for years. The Vandals, for reasons unknown, have saved her and brought her back to their clubhouse. She isn’t sure if she is a prisoner or not, but they treat her better than her own family have.
The guys are difficult to figure out at first because the author switches between their given name and the bird name they have all adopted. It takes some time to figure out how many different guys there are which was frustrating. But, beyond that, it is a really interesting story. Emersyn’s an abuse victim and the guys have saved her, but she can’t figure out why. She knows there is something else they are hiding. I like the guys, but this book is still sort of getting to know everyone and revealing some secrets. It is pretty slow burn until the very end where it ignites!
