REVIEW -- Savage kind of Love

Savage Kind of Love


I LOVE Nicole's books... especially her Prairie Devils MC series. So, I was STOKED to get my hands on the third installment of the series.

Shelly "Saffron" Reagan's life is in shambles, and it's about to get worse. Keeping up a broken home and a brother in the vicious Grizzlies MC is more than any woman can handle. Remembering the tough talking biker who nursed her after a savage attack is all she has, a bad boy who's impossibly out of reach.

Or so it seems.

When Saffron gets caught in biker's crossfire, there's only one man to lead her out. One man to protect her, one man to lay his claim, one man to make her burn forever with his kiss...

Michael "Blaze" Sturm swears he won't get tied down by any woman. Easier said than done when the babe with the body he can't forget keeps storming back into his life. When he answers her desperate call one dark morning, nothing will ever be the same.

As President of the new Prairie Devils Montana charter, Blaze always gets his way. Now, his sights are set on beautiful Saffron, and he won't stop until she's wearing his brand and surrendering her lips.

Will Saffron find outlaw love in his fire - or will Blaze's harsh world turn her heart to ashes?

I think this is my favorite book in the series to date! This is the 3rd installment in the series and this time, we're following the story of Blaze and Saffron.

Blaze is the president of the newly-formed Montana chapter and he's walked into some big trouble. Seems there's a rogue motorcycle club that aren't really Grizzlies, but they are using the colors and brandings. That's a HUGE no-no in the unspoken rules of MC clubs.

Saffron used to be a dancer at the Prairie Devils' strip club and she's living a rough life; her brother Jordan is mixed up with the rogue Grizzlies and her mom is disabled. So, when Jordan comes home with a MC buddy of his, Saffron is less than thrilled to see him. Jordan sends Saffron to the pharmacy with his buddy for their mom's medication and that's where things get hairy... The buddy takes Saffron to the middle of nowhere and tries to have his way with her. Saffron doesn't take too kindly to this and ends up killing the guy. She calls Blaze for help, and so begins their relationship.

What I liked most about this book is the way Nicole painted Saffron. In the other two books, she painted the heroines as NEEDING to be rescued. Rachel (Outlaw Kind of Love) seemed shy and reserved... It wasn't until the end of the book that she 'grew a set' and even then, it was still reserved, only being verbal threats. June (Nomad Kind of Love) may have acted tough, but it felt like an act; underneath it all, she was broken and defeated.

In this book, Nicole styled Saffron as a strong-headed woman from the start. She was stubborn and insistent; She wasn't going to let her brother OR Blaze control her. I really liked that trait in her.

Another thing that I liked is the fact that Nicole slowed down the claiming process. In the other 2 books, the heroines were claimed and almost immediately married. In this book, Blaze claimed Saffron and that was it, no mention of marriage. The closest we got to a 'permanent' thing is Saffron getting 'Property of Blaze' tattooed onto her skin.

The sex was hot; way hotter than the first two books. I could picture myself as Saffron and could feel the emotions and sensations she was feeling during the sexual scenes. That's a MAJOR bonus in my book!

The violence may be too much for some readers, but it should be expected from this genre of books. I hate to stereotype people, MC clubs are thought to be violent people. It wouldn't have been believable if there was no violence in the book. I was cringing at the scenes involving the rogue Grizzlies burning Saffron with the cigars, threatening to rape her and purposely overdosing Jordan to the point of near death.

Each book in the Prairie Devils MC series can be read as stand-alone novels, but certain things that are mentioned in the book will make MORE sense if you read the other books, at least Nomad Kind of Love.

This book is a great addition to the Prairie Devils MC series. If you are into the MC Club genre, this book will not disappoint
STARS: 5/5
