Biker/MC books have seen an explosion in popularity over recent years with an insatiable market devouring everything in its path be it the Good, the Bad, the Ugly, the mediocre or the downright ridiculous. With more quantity than quality, even though I love MC books, far too rarely do I find the exceptional, special or even just bloody good in this hugely overpopulated market. I’m a fickle, fussy bitch and don’t deny it but I need a storyline, character development, emotion, and I want it all real, gritty and hot, not juvenile and repetitive with no depth, range or world building. My go to authors are Madeline Sheehan, Joanna Wylde and Nicole Jacquelyn, for a softer style I adored Kristen Ashley’s ‘Motorcycle Man’ and have enjoyed many of Jamie Begley’s. My point? Well, a review is just an opinion, nothing more nothing less and we all have different opinions especially with MC books, so if you like my type of choices that I have enjoyed then I highly recommend that you give River Savage a try – in my opinion this is a quality one. I read ‘Incandescent’ a few days ago, what a promising debut that I should have given a chance earlier, then I read an ‘Affliction’ ARC and the growth in her writing, the emotion delivered means I will be stalking River Savage for the next instalment because she is going to be one to watch…..
Three little words are all it takes to rip his world apart. Lost in his own affliction, Sy has been living in a darkness that he doesn’t ever want to let go of.
Until she arrives and shines her light so bright that nothing else mattered.
She was only in it for the chase, for the thrill of capturing the unattainable.
But what happens when her world shatters around her, spiraling her into the darkness beside him?
Can his affliction be her resurrection?
Or will two lost souls living in the depths of deception let it destroy them?
‘Affliction’ is a totally different read from ‘Incandescent’ and the growth River Savage shows as a writer is impressive. It’s an emotional read that is insightful, heart breaking, uplifting and beautiful all in one package.
There is no way to express the beauty of this book without giving away huge spoilers and I refuse to do that, nothing is worse than getting the entire story from a review before you even decide whether to purchase or not. Suffice to say that River has seamlessly interwoven what broke Sylas to become what enables him to put Holly back together while making us cry ugly tears, smile, laugh, get a little turned on then curse the kindle and want to read it all over again.
“I’m not letting you get lost again. I’m not letting you become me.”
From the first time Holly called him Sunshine you knew these two were going to have a story, she didn’t know then what his darkness came from, what those three little words were that so changed the path of his life and had no idea that an all-consuming darkness was headed for her, the wit and sass between them is a pleasure to read but the beauty comes with the pain in the book as this story of loss, grief, hope, love and second chances draws you in, grabs your heart and does not let go.
`Affliction` is Sylas and Holly’s story but features all the characters we met previously in ‘Incandescent’, catching up with Nix and Kadence was a joy and I want Jesse the man whore to get his comeuppance!! I thought Nix was the panty dropping king but Sy more than gives him a run for his money as the chemistry between him and Holly is hot as fuck and the sass she throws gets him every time!
So if River Savage can write a book of this calibre, with angst, heartache, loss, hope, love, sunshine and darkness on only her second outing then I actually worry how much she will tear us up, spit us out and then put us back together as she learns more of her craft. Not sure my heart can take it…..
“What the fuck are you doing in my club?” he asks again, moving his body closer.
“Your club?” I ask, raising my brow. “Last time I checked, I came here with my best friend, not to see you, so if you’ll excuse me,” I say, trying to push off the wall, but he steps right in, his knee coming between my legs.
“You gonna fuck him?” he growls, his eyes growing angrier by the second.
“Maybe,” I tell him, knowing he’s talking about Jesse. “I wonder if he will leave me standing naked after a quick fuck up against the wall,” I continue. His hold on me gets tighter. I know I shouldn’t tease him with my words, but he’s seriously delusional if he thinks he has any claim over me.
“I knew you were a tease, but I didn’t know you wanted to be a club whore,” he replies, and I try not to let his words sting.
“Are you done?”
“Are you?” he counters.
“You left me standing there. I didn’t fucking do anything. What are you so angry about?”
“You coming into my club, throwing yourself at one of my brothers.”
“Jeez, get over yourself, Sy. Jesse was just showing me around the place. And if I decide I want to have sex with him, or anyone else for that matter, I’ll do what I want. You don’t fucking own me. You had me, fine, but it was mediocre at best, so keep your hands off me,” I snap, trying to get out of his hold.
“Mediocre?” he repeats back to me. I’m so pissed at his attitude I don’t falter in repeating it.
“Didn’t feel like that when your cunt was gripping my cock like a vice,” he throws back, his words causing my pussy to throb.
“That’s called pelvic floor muscle exercises,” I say, ignoring my body’s response to having him so close.
“Right,” he whispers, leaning further into me, “and what about when I dragged my tongue through that sweet pussy of yours, and lapped up your juices dripping from you?” he questions. It takes everything in me not to respond. “Now that I think about it, when you walked into my shop, all pissed off, you were walking like you had been fucked so hard. Did you feel me for days, sweetheart?” he continues, pushing into me further. “I bet your pussy is aching for me now, isn’t it, Holly?” he asks, his lips so dangerously close to my neck.
Fuck me. Two seconds ago I hated the man, and now I’m trying to squeeze my thighs together to stop the ache coming from my lady parts.
“Too bad you won’t find out,” I counter, staying strong. I might want him more than anything, but he is still an ass.
“I don’t even need to touch you to find out. It’s written all over your face, Holly.”
“Whatever, Sy. Let me go.”
“You know I’m right. You’re so fucking turned on right now and so frustrated you’re not going to get any relief,” he teases, telling me what I already know.
“There’s always Jesse,” I threaten, trying to get a reaction from him.
“Like fuck,” he spits out, pushing his hard cock against me. “You’re not gonna let that fucker touch you. Do you understand me? None of my brothers will taste your pussy. Do you hear me?” His hand runs up my leg, running along my short denim skirt and finding the outside of my panties. A small gasp leaves my lips at his feather-light touch. “This sweet pussy belongs to me. I fucking had it first. Now, it’s mine.”
“No, it’s not,” I fight back, but my mind is too busy memorizing each lazy stroke of his finger over my lace panties.
“It will be again,” he warns before taking my mouth hard, suppressing me with his tongue. His fingers pull my panties aside, slipping in and dancing over my aching heat.
“Shit,” I breathe against his lips, forgetting where I am for a moment. Forgetting we can’t stand each other.
“You want relief, Holly?” he asks as my hips start to ride the rhythm of his talented fingers.
“Yes, give it to me, Sy,” I plead, feeling myself build with each flick of his finger.
“Say please,” he demands, slipping his thick finger inside of me.
“Please, Sy,” I cry out as he pumps me harder.
“That’s it, girl. Fuck my finger,” he growls. The heat of his voice causes goose bumps to break out on my skin. A wave of impending bliss washes over me, and then my orgasm hits, hard and fast.
“Sy,” I hiss, but don’t get anything else out as his tongue is dancing with mine again, muffling my shouts of ecstasy. His taste reminds me of beer, mint, and all things Sy. He latches onto my tongue, sucking it hard into his mouth, sending pleasure and pain rolling through my body.
Fuck, this man is dangerous with his bad-boy attitude, his sexy as hell dirty mouth and his ability to take me on the highest of highs in less than a minute. He slows the kiss, lingering for a moment before resting his forehead on mine. This right here is why this man is dangerous: bringing me apart in the middle of the club, and making me forget I hate him. Removing his fingers, he brings them to his mouth and sucks them clean.
