Savage Heart by J. Woods #Review
Posted by brriske
She’s a doctor, guided by her morals. He’s an ex-soldier, robbed of his ethics and programmed to kill. When they’re two worlds suddenly collide, will they crash and burn?
For the last seven years, Ethan Black ceased to exist. Known only as the Reaper, Ethan prefers his solitary life where the only rules he lives by are his own. That is until his life is placed in the hands of his angel and he has no choice but to listen if he wants to survive.
The last thing Stella Savage needs is another overbearing arrogant soldier in her life but when she finds a lifeless Ethan Black on the side of the road, the doctor in her is forced to help him. After escaping his kidnappers and being subject to a drug destined to erase his humanity, Stella is running on precious time to save whatever is left of his soul… and his heart.
I will say that I absolutely did NOT like Ethan at the beginning. I understood he’d been through a lot, but he was really ugly to Stella, even though he knew he had feelings for her. The action of the novel helped bring some of his behavior into perspective and, by the end, I’d quit giving him mental stink eye. I really enjoyed the interaction of the Savage family and definitely want to read more of the series so I can get to know the secondary characters better, especially Stella’s mother.
This book, and I suspect the rest of the series, is very reminiscent of Lora Leigh’s Elite Ops series and I did enjoy it once I realized that I had some mental catching up to do. Like Lora Leigh’s books, this one is definitely for mature audiences.
