img_4715Being bad has never been so sexy…

Bad boy Ethan Hunt is sexy, hard and tainted by a past he can’t escape. To make matters worse, good girl Ana Kendall is a wicked temptation impossible to resist. She’s too innocent for him, so he leaves, joining the security team for the world tour of the internationally famous rock band, Savaged Illusions.

Being good has never satisfied…

Since moving in with her dad at fourteen, Ana’s been the perfect daughter, friend, student and employee. But perfection sucks. When her girlfriends cook up a ridiculous scheme to reunite her with the one man she can’t forget, Ana hijacks their plot. It’s time to shed her good girl persona and go after what she wants—Ethan.

Being bad together is deadly…

When Ana bursts back into his life at a concert, Ethan has to make a choice. Consumed by fiery passion, Ana and Ethan surrender to their sensual desires…and unknowingly ignite the rage of an insidious stalker. This time Ethan can’t walk away—Ana’s life, and his heart, are on the line.



“I think about that kiss,” he admitted.
Her mouth parted, and her tongue darted out to touch the tip to her plump bottom lip. “You do?”
“Yes. And I think about you.” He ran a hand over his head. Did she have to look so damned beautiful and sleek? By most standards, Ana was cute, with her heart-shaped face and tiny stature. But to him, she was gorgeous and untouchable. “But the reality is, I’m still bad for you.”
Her chin notched up. “Bad is what I’m searching for right now. Short-term bad.”
Heat blazed over his skin at the idea of Ana, his sweet girl, wanting to be bad. “Why?”
“I’m tired of being good, of always trying so hard, and worrying that I’m falling short. I’m ready for some fun, but I don’t…” She looked away.
She’d been honest with him right up until now, so why was this hard? Or did she fear him rejecting and hurting her again? Catching her chin, he turned her face to see her expression. “Don’t what?”
Her eyes shimmered with a need that nearly undid him. “I can’t seem to find the guy I want to be bad with. Except for you.”


Cori 4.5 Stars

I was so excited to get my hands on this book. I loved Jennifer Lyon’s Plus One Chronicles and SAVAGED SURRENDER features two of the secondary characters from that trilogy. It’s also loosely related to her upcoming series the Savaged Illusions Rock Band series. If you haven’t read THE PLUS ONE CHRONICLES I’d recommend reading the trilogy first, but this novella can be read as a standalone. I couldn’t put this novella down. I loved Ethan and Ana together. Ethan was just yummy. I mean a bad-ass fighter that cooks? Ummm yes, please! SAVAGED SURRENDER was a great story with plenty of action and smoking hot romance.  I loved it and can’t wait for the upcoming spin-off series.
