Publisher's Summary

Royal Savage
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 f--king fade away. I've given up. Until her at least...
Avalon.
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 f--k 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.
Avalon Knight
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...

Oh if only Royal was real ....

I don't know if this should be a disclaimer but I'm going to throw it out there anyways. I love this book. Like serious love. I have re read it at least three times. I have recommended it to friends, I mean I almost brag about it. I love the story, the heartbreak comes through so clearly and you just want to make it better. I loved the characters, I loved the ending because luckily, it's a good one. I'm super excited to read the next book in the series.

Now for the not so great part. I like that it's got M/F narration. I absolutely love Lorenzo Matthew's voice and it did the H justice. That being said, I wasn't thrilled about Samantha Cook. I feel like her male voices sound like they're slurring their words and have cotton stuffed in their mouth. Her regular voice was just fine though, but yeah, the male parts, not so much.

I do still highly recommend this audio book though, it's a fantastic story and everyone should listen to it.

Broken, Damaged But Breathtakingly Beautiful!

All the positive reviews are spot on abut this audio! I LOVE It!

This was my first Victoria Ashley story and not only did she impress me with her writing style and how she keeps the listener in suspense, but she blew past all my expectations. Royal Savage is enthralling, gripping, and shocking and evokes a whirlwind of emotions. It's always the damaged characters who love harder, protect fiercer and seek revenge that make me hopelessly helpless not to fall in love with them. Royal is such a character who's story was not always easy, but it gripped me, had my heart aching, but the chemistry, love and romance between him and Avalon had my heart soaring.

Some Spoilers;
For the past two years, Royal has been filled with anger and pain after suffering a heart-breaking tragic loss and is left with feelings of guilt for not being able to stop it. As he goes about life, he's a shell of the man he once was and is consumed with the need for revenge against those who have taken everything from him, that is until Avalon comes in his life.

When Avalon first lays eyes on Royal, she's a little terrified and in awe of this big gruff, sexy tatted up man whose piercing eyes reflect pain. She soon learns Royal is the brother to the guy she has been currently dating, and is appalled when she sees how he and is family treat Royal. The more time she spends and learns about Royal, the more she is determined to be there for him when he is ready to move on.

I love discovering narrators I've never heard before and Samantha Cook and Lorenzo Matthews performance was a breath of fresh air. This duo did a great job with the characters, emotions and brought the story to life. I would definitely listen to either of these narrators in the future.

A well-rounded emotionally charged story with lot's of drama, spice, action, and a heart warming HEA. Well worth every minute, credit or sale! If you liked T.M. Frazier's King, then you may want to consider adding Royal Savage to your audio library.
