When he first left Candace Marks behind, Rick Savage promised himself he’d let her be. Granted, she was, and still is, the woman he loves. In his mind, there will never be anyone else. When he’s forced to unexpectedly return him, his past hits him hard in more ways than one. To make matters worse, he must now come face-to-face with the woman he walked away from so long ago.

A lovely start to this series, we’re introduced to Rick Savage, a character who’s been in quite a few of Lisa Renee’s other stories. I’ve always wondered about the circumstances that have made Savage who and what he is. He’s a man who keeps to himself at every turn. A man who seems hard on the outside, but is a huge softy on the inside. This is a certainty the author cements at every turn within the story itself.

In Savage Hunger, we get to know more of Savage’s past. A past he prefers to keep on the down-low. Sadly, doing so is easier said than done. Most especially when it comes to the lovely Candace. These two characters might seem like opposites, yet they complement one another in more ways than one. She’s the light to his darkness, while he’s the flame that keeps her warm at night.

What else Lisa has to bring to the table for these two characters—as well as the rest of the characters that find themselves within this series—remains to be seen. I do so hope that Savage and Candace attain their happily-ever-after. They so deserve it. That, and so much more!


Rick Savage, but they call him Savage and for a reason. He can make you laugh and then rip your heart out. No one knows that more than me, Candace Marks, the woman he left bleeding from the heart. I loved him. Lord help me, I’ve never stopped loving him.

Now, I’m engaged to another man, a brutal man I’m trapped into marrying, when to my shock, Savage returns home. Savage who I haven’t heard from in years. I want to hate him. I have ever reason to hate him, but I can’t. I still love him and I fear he will save me just to leave me bleeding one last time. He stirs my desires, a dark, delicious, and dangerous man destined to hurt me and leave me. This time I’m not sure I’ll survive.

“Why are you here alone, Rick Savage?”

He fixes me in a deep blue stare, and I swear I’m drifting in a sea of this man’s making. “To meet you. I just didn’t know it yet.”

The rain explodes around us again, an eternal roughening of the windows that only Texas does with such force. Thunder erupts with it, lightning in the distance, and I don’t know who moves first. Him or me. Suddenly though we’re in the middle of the seat and his fingers are tangling all rough and wonderfully in my hair, his mouth lowering to mine. “I’m going to kiss you now unless you object,” he says.

“Kiss me already, Savage.”

“Rick. Call me Rick.” And then his lips collide with my lips, his tongue a deep stroke of pure heat that has me moaning with the rush of sensation that assaults my body in the best of ways.

My arms slide around his muscular back, body pressing against his body, the hard lines of this incredible man absorbing more than the softer part of me. That need to be touched explodes inside me, demanding satisfaction. He pulls back and stares down at me. “Do you want to get out of here? Together.”

I tell myself this is crazy, insane, wildly out of my character. “I don’t do things like this. Ever.”

He kisses me again and leaves me breathless. “Make me the first.”
