Series: Savage #2
Published by Samhain Publishing on October 1st 2013
Someone wants her. And someone else wants her…dead. Savage, Book 2 If life as a not-fully-human has taught Agent Grace Masterson anything, it’s that she’ll never again be anyone’s sitting duck. Whoever is deftly evading the traps around her remote sanctuary outside Seattle, she intends to shove his easily sensed self-confidence way, way up where the sun don’t shine. When she comes face to face—and body to body—with Darrius Hilliard, relief and lingering guilt over past choices weaken her knees. Plus something bad. Really bad. A surprising, intense desire for her fellow agent. Darrius knows what Grace needs, and it’s not the kid-glove treatment. If she’s ever to overcome her past trauma and return to full active duty status with the P.I.A, she needs a strong shoulder. Yet he’s shocked at how quickly he’s become physically and emotionally entwined with her. Fighting their growing attraction to one another becomes secondary, though, when it becomes clear that someone not only isn’t thrilled at Grace’s return, they want her gone. Maybe even dead… Warning: This book contains an alpha male who likes to take control, federal agents that can be a little primal, sex that’s steaming, lives at risk, and nearly orgasmic maple bars.
Agent Grace Masterson is having trouble getting back in the swing of things since she almost died in the line of duty. She still has the lingering feeling that someone is following her with menacing intentions. Fellow teammate Darrius Hillard wants Grace to come back to work and he knows he is going to need to be firm with her.
Darrius never expected sparks to fly when he goes toe-to-toe with Grace. He has this uncontrollable urge to protect her but also knows if he tries she will make mincemeat of him. Trouble is stalking Grace and Darrius and if they don’t work together they may not have the chance to test out their feelings for each other.
Savage Betrayal is a sexy thrill ride. Grace and Darrius have super-charged chemistry. The plot is an intriguing “who did it.” I like that Grace is having trouble going back to work. She may be more than human but she’s not perfect and she needs help to get back to normal. Darrius is the perfect man to kick her butt in gear and it is fun watching them go at it in and out of bed. Savage Betrayal is an exciting addition to the Savage series.
