I CAN’T CLOSE MY EYES… I refuse to. Every time I do, all I see is blood, death, and pain. I can feel it - almost taste it, bringing me back to that night.
It doesn't matter that I'm still breathing; I no longer need it, I no longer want it. I despise it along with everything else around me.
The only thing I long for is to fucking fade away. I've given up. Until her at least…
She comes into my world, knocking me on my ass.
It turns me on to have her around me. Makes me want to wrap my hand around her tight little throat and fuck her until she feels my pain, feels the monster in me, but also makes me want to protect her from the very thing that she should be afraid of... me.
Once she sees the damage that I’m capable of; she’ll look at me like everyone else around me does: with fear.
HIS EYES... THE DARKNESS IN them draws me to him, making me want to taste him, feel him… and save him. I shouldn't have gotten on the back of his motorcycle that day. I know that now. Colton warned me. I was told it was dangerous. I was told that nothing would be the same. He was right.
ROYAL is dangerous, dark, and seductive; the very thing that keeps me hanging on, willing to give my last breath just to touch him… breathe him in.
He’s savage, inked, and highly captivating. So different from his brother…
He's hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing that I crave. I want to free him. I want to change his mind, but I'm afraid that he’s already too faded…

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**
Victoria Ashley has done it again with Royal Savage. She took something that is outside her "normal" realm of writing and really owned it. She kept me sucked into this storyline and on the edge of my seat. I didn't want to put this book down at all and I couldn't wait to get to the very end. I was hooked for the prologue...I mean who wouldn't be...it was amazing and intriguing. Victoria really out did herself with this book.
So, Royal has got to be Victoria's darkest character yet and oh what an amazing one he is. Even though we mostly see him the dark monster he portrays, he is so much more. His loyal, protective, fierce, sexy and loving in his own way. When he wanted nothing more than one night with Avalon, he couldn't deny that he also wanted more after he finally had her. I liked that about him, that even though he tried to fight it he just couldn't help but want to be around her.
Avalon...she is exactly what Royal needed. She was the perfect match for a man like him. She helped to bring him back to life just by being her and refusing to give up on him. I really loved her character from the start even though she was a bit stifled by the douche-bag Colton. She eventually remembered who she was and that he was not for her, but maybe it was his brother, because you know there has to be some sibling drama in this book ;)
True to her writing style Victoria made this book very sexy, a little darker than her normal, but still oh so sexy. There was a lot going on in the storyline, but not enough to lose focus. I liked that glimpses into the past that let us connect with Royal on a savage level and brought so much understanding to who he was in the present. There are even somethings that I didn't see coming and they made me love this story so much more, because it made you see the many levels of these characters.
This book is a MUST read by Victoria Ashley.
