Review: Savage Savior (Savage People #3) by Charleigh Rose

Sunday, January 8

My Rating:
4 Stars…

Quote…We are chaotic and messy and not at all pretty... but this is us. This is ours. It's the best thing that's ever been mine, flaws and all.

Love. It's a strange thing, isn't it? It can make you. Break you. Take you to places you've never been before. I know what they say about him. 
What he does for the Irish mafia in New York. 
But the thing is, love is blind. It binds. 
And now, we're bound for life. 

What I loved: 

For a quick and dirty novella, this story had a lot of depth. It was well written, it flowed gorgeously, and I was invested in the characters. 

Carter was the stuff, yo. If only stalkers were actually hot like this, instead of - ya know - something off Criminal Intent. 

Parts of this were super funny. I thought it was pretty bloody impressive that you could take a novella and make it deep, interesting, and funny. Who knew! 

Of course, and one (I've been reading a lot of regency romances lately - so sue me) shouldn't expect anything less from Charleigh Rose, the raunch is strong in this one. A lot of thumbs up for Carter and Quinn in all their dirty glory.

 What I didn’t love: 

My problem with novellas is that they're short. No shit, right? 

But, I feel like if we're paying for a very short book, I don't want any of it taken up by peripheral characters - like, it should be all main characters, all the time. This one had too many of the other people, and too much time where our characters weren't physically together. 
Also, for me, too much unecessary drama for such a short story. If this had been full length, I would have loved it, but I felt like I was running out of time to get all the Carter & Quinn goodness in.


Great, quick, dirty read - but I wish it had either been longer, or had the peripheral characters taken out. There wasn't enough room for everything.
