"Only true love can reach the depths of a tortured soul."
I just about died waiting for the conclusion to The Kingwood Duet after the WTF? ending of the first book. I was so totally invested that I needed to know what happened because I couldn't get Savage out of my head. I kept replaying it over and over in my mind, wanting, wishing, worrying...waiting.
If you are reading this review, then you probably already read Savage, so you know that I can't tell you what happens. That mind numbing ending is right where Savior begins. You will relive it all over again. You will gasp and hold your breath, bite your nails and worry. You will read faster, turning the pages to get to the answer hoping it's the one your heart needs to resume beating.
Those people that you hate...you will hate harder. Those questions that need answers, you will get them. And they will blow your mind. That love that transcends time will be remembered and replayed. That bad boy that you fell in love with before, will take you even deeper and wreck you even more. Sleep. What is that? You won't be getting any of that until you turn the last page, because there will be no walking away from Savior once you start reading. And when you finish reading it, your mind won't turn off, it will keep churning with every revelation and declaration. Your heart will get a workout that you won't soon forget. And I guarantee, like me, you'll already be waiting for the next S.L. Scott masterpiece. The line forms here...
I sit outside on a bench, looking at the scuffs on the tips of my black leather shoes. The bottoms are worn from wearing them while riding my bike. It was the only sign that set me apart from the other rich kids where I grew up. Other than Cruise, no one rode motorcycles or had dealt with anything worse than getting a warning after getting busted for smoking, skipping school, sneaking out, smoking weed, getting drunk, or driving over the speed limit. The list could go on.
I have a car. I just don’t drive it much, preferring the freedom I feel on my bike. It wasn’t just my clothes or the bike that set me apart. None of them had lived, breathed, existed simply because their soul mate did. Not even now.
From the moment I saw her, I knew Sara Jane was it for me, an angel in a Catholic school uniform, eating a candy bar. She couldn’t have been more innocent. Except she was. The girl had barely been kissed. It’s like she had been waiting to meet me, as if she had saved herself for me. How a girl who looked that good and smelled even sweeter remained untouched for so long was beyond me.
I would have loved her no matter what. She could have been a prostitute, and I would have only seen her halo. I was a ship navigating a stormy sea, but she called me to her lighthouse, a beacon shining in the dark. It was never about her innocence, or the sins I had inherited. The day I met Sara Jane was about two lives that weren’t meant for only one lifetime, but destined to be together forever.
Maybe that’s what had given me the confidence to break away from the kids I grew up with. I knew I was meant for something bigger than a life of partying and getting high socially.
I was meant for Sara Jane, and she for me.
