I wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of whimpering. For a second, I don’t know where I am, but then I hear a soft beep of a monitor and realize I’m with Springs. I glance down, and my nose gets buried in the bush of her unruly, wild, curly hair. I’ve never seen hair like this before. It’s how I came up with the name Springs. Each strand of hair looks like a tightly wound coil or spring.
Since I don’t know her name, I’ve been calling her Springs.
She quiets down and settles against me again, and I do something weird, something I’ve never done before, and I’m glad she’s asleep for it.
I inhale the scent of her hair, and my eyes roll to the back of my head when I smell peaches. I have to hold back a groan and many, many other things that are not appropriate right now.
I’m such an ass.
She rolls away from me, and blood rushes through my arm. Static tingles my fingers, and I slide my arm out from under her and then fix the sheet as it slides down her shoulders. She has a small tattoo right under her collarbone, simple, delicate, and sophisticated. It’s a simple flower, a rose. The line work is thin, which gives it a feminine, elegant appearance. I want to lean down and kiss it so badly, but it’s selfish thinking, considering everything she’s been through. I shouldn’t want her like I do. I have no right.
There are a few things I tell myself to stay away from.
I like to be balanced. Being right in the middle means nothing can go wrong. There are no expectations to be met. No promises can be broken. No disappointment can be felt. No love can be lost.
I live life in the middle for the most part. Personally, I think it’s worked out pretty well, minus being whipped and strung up like a pig for standing up for what I believe in.
Keeping my desires close to my heart saves me, even if what I want suffocates me every day.
Even though I want love, even though I want more, and I don’t want to slide between the legs of a club whore, I’m scared.
What if I’m just like my father? What if what I have isn’t enough, and I’ll want another life, another family? What if his bad blood runs through my veins, and I’m just this piece of shit human being? Maybe I try too hard to be a decent man because inside I know just how rotten I am.
My stomach growls, yanking me out of my pity party. I rub my hands over my face and look at the time. It’s four in the morning. No wonder I’m hungry. I missed dinner, and that means she did too.
I sit up and swing my legs over the bed as I stretch my neck left, then right, getting the cricks out. My boots hit the floor with a soft thud, and I look over my shoulder to make sure I didn’t wake her. Her curly hair looks like a huge cotton ball on the pillow. Her body is covered by the sheet and all I see are those curly coils. I chuckle to myself and fight the urge to reach up and run my fingers through her hair.
K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind
of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and
as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.
Okay ya’ll, I am not even going to lie I squealed when I got this! I mean seriously who isn’t in love Boomer? Shhh… just don’t tell his main squeeze. K.L. Savage did not let me down. I dove into Boomer’s Rise like a kid in a candy store. And then I devoured him and his club. Knowing how the Atlantic City chapter started and then to see how far they have come was wonderful. Of course it would […]
Tongue’s Target gives us a closer deeper look into Tongue’s mind and life after his finding his love Daphne. I love how K.L. Savage leaps into his psyche. They don’t try to make him softer even though he’s found his one. While Daphne draws him out of the shadows more and more, he still lurks there. In Tongue’s Target he is reminded of why, at times, it is best for him to lurk. Savage rips what you think is […]
Lunatic is the first book in another ground breaking series by K.L. Savage. Let me just say they delivered another hard punching, gut wrenching, and heart pulling story. Lunatic makes you want to hug and protect those that many would deem unlovable or unwanted. I have faithfully read the Ruthless Series by K.L. Savage and I knew that the Ruthless Asylum series would be just as fascinating. Yet for some reason it still blows me away that these two […]
I am such a fan of KL Savage. With every book they are able to make you feel for their characters. Each story is unique and fresh. They have been able to build a world that is realistic, terrifying in ways and yet completely addictive. Knives is book 10 in the Ruthless King series. Savage continues to impress me with every book that I devour. Yes, I devour their writings like they are the air I need to live. I […]
The Groundskeeper from Ruthless Halloween is making his presence known again. KL Savage has brought back an almost perfect antagonist in Groundskeeper. A man who knows more than most about the Ruthless Kings. He aims and hits his mark with precision. That doesn’t mean he takes them out, just that he keeps the club on their guard. I love how Savage twists the club around. You’d think that after all that these men and women have gone through that there […]
Having read every book K.L Savage has put out, I can honestly say that I am dazzled by how the authors always seem to top their previous books. Just when you think there is no possible way for the characters to grab you as much as the previous Savage thrives on proving you wrong. To date Tongue is the most heart wrenching character that Savage has brought forth and that is saying something. Savage brings attention to many different horrors […]
As a huge fan of the Ruthless Kings I was excited to dive into another members life and devour him. Oh lord, how I’d love to devour Doc but I will try to keep this pg rated lol. Every time I read a Ruthless Kings book I wonder how K.L. Savage can top their last book. How they can find a plot or twist that can one up the last book. Don’t ask me how but they always do. Savage […]
Holy wow! KL Savage will keep you guessing even after this book is over. Bringing all your favorite Ruthless Kings together to get your heart racing as they try to solve the trick. Savage is a one click for me. From their tougher than nails and hotter than hell men to their women who fight for what they want and love. Absolutely the best Halloween Novella I’ve read to date!!
Pirate is a book that will grab you fast and rip your heart to shreds. Savage has a gift for somehow one upping herself with each and every book. Pirate is no exception. He is a broken man, whose past will not let him find peace. Sunnie has never had the life that any person deserves, and her future looks even more grim. Savage tackles hard topics such as substance abuse but with such heart and compassion that you genuinely […]
