ROYAL SAVAGE I CAN'T CLOSE MY EYES… I refuse to. Every time I do, all I see is blood, death, and pain. I can feel it - almost taste it, bringing me back to that night. It doesn't matter that I'm still breathing; I no longer need it, I no longer want it. I despise it along with everything else around me. The only thing I long for is to fucking fade away. I've given up. Until her at least… AVALON. She comes into my world, knocking me on my ass. It turns me on to have her around me. Makes me want to wrap my hand around her tight little throat and fuck her until she feels my pain, feels the monster in me, but also makes me want to protect her from the very thing that she should be afraid of... me. Once she sees the damage that I'm capable of; she'll look at me like everyone else around me does: with fear. AVALON KNIGHT HIS EYES... THE DARKNESS IN them draws me to him, making me want to taste him, feel him… and save him. I shouldn't have gotten on the back of his motorcycle that day. I know that now. Colton warned me. I was told it was dangerous. I was told that nothing would be the same. He was right. ROYAL is dangerous, dark, and seductive; the very thing that keeps me hanging on, willing to give my last breath just to touch him… breathe him in. He's savage, inked, and highly captivating. So different from his brother… He's hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing that I crave. I want to free him. I want to change his mind, but I'm afraid that he's already too faded…

Royal - an emotionally broken male with the face of an angel, a punctured heart and a past that no one could expect to survive. His hard tattooed facade would keep most at bay, but once Avalon laid eyes on him, she knew she couldn't be swayed. There was something about this male that made her the magnet to his steel. Maybe it was the way she could see through to his soul whenever their eyes met or how her heart did that funny thing whenever he was near. No matter what his past was or how others perceived him, Avalon fell hard.
Royal blew into her life like a summer rain storm – a hot, unexpected force of nature that left her breathless and wanting more. For him, she was a distraction from the pain he endured after an unspeakable tragedy that plagued him daily. Avalon was everything that he had run away from for so long. She ignited feelings, opened doors that had long since been nailed shut and soothed his demons - if only temporarily.
Where do I start? This book was beyond anything I could have imagined. This story was emotionally compelling from the very beginning to the final words. It was like watching a movie (or listening to one). The first thing that pulled me in was the cover of this book. You could feel the intensity of Royal just by looking at the cover model. Whoever chose this male is a genius!
The second thing was the Audible narration, which I highly recommend. Samantha Cook's and Lorenzo Matthews' performances gave life to Victoria Ashley's expertly crafted words in a way that held me captive and pushed me over an emotional cliff. My heart broke over and over again for Royal as he dealt with a family who didn't accept him and a deep, dark past for which he felt responsible. I felt Avalon's fear when she thought she could never be enough and that she would lose him forever. And fair warning…there is a twist that will make you angry and then have you grabbing for the Kleenex.
This is my first Victoria Ashley book, and she blew me away with this story. She's a powerful writer and I could tell she put her heart and soul into this story. Her hard work paid off…big time. In my short review I can't begin to do justice to this beautifully written story. All I can say is just get this book – NOW. Royal and Avalon will pull you in and make you glad you did.
