Review: Savaged by Kate Benson

Rating: ★★★ stars
Date published: October 8th, 2014
Publisher: self published
Synopsis: Since the night I met her at a shitty basement party in high school, I’ve wanted her, craved her. Even when we were fifteen, she had something animalistic, primal hiding behind those grey eyes. I still can’t put my finger on what it is about her.

Whatever it is, I’m addicted.

Callie Leveaux? She’s always craved sex. Up until now, she didn’t even care much who it was with, but I’m about to change all that.

I sat on the sidelines, struggling to kick one vice so I could trade it for my addiction to her. You might think I did it to be a better person, but the truth is, it’s always been for her.

My name is Tommy Savage and I’m the man she’s been waiting for.

What I Thought:

I really wanted to like this book.  I thought it was the first book in the series, but it turned out to be the second.  Now it took me a while to figure that out, and that was okay, because I wasn't completely lost.  However I do think my review would be drastically different had I read the previous book.  

The story started out with Callie and Tommy getting it on and it pretty much stayed that way throughout the entire book.  Now I love sex as much as the next person, but it seemed like the book was unevenly skewed, as in maybe 5% of the entire book was story and 95% was sex.  Since this novel wasn't very long, it felt like the entire book was Tommy and Callie having sex and then the scene was set for the next book.  This is probably the one and only time I will ever complain that there was too much sex in the story.  I like to have a balance or at least have the sexual relationship enhance the relationship between the characters.  

I did like the parts I read that weren't sex.  There was emotional conflict between Callie and Tommy, especially due to her previous occupation.  I also liked the conflict between Tommy and his father and look forward to seeing how that's resolved in the next book.  I'm surprised I haven't read anything by Kate Benson before, but know I will be keeping an eye out for her next work.

About the Author

I grew up in Texas and moved to Florida when I met the love of my life 13 years ago. I wrote my first poem when I was five and it was about my love affair with pickles. I still love pickles but I like to think my writing has grown since then. I absolutely adore anything to do with books whether it's writing them or devouring them in one sitting. I live on music, love, and sweet tea. I am known for my silly but blunt personality. I've been lucky enough to find the love of my life, marry him and now we're working on our happily ever after. He inspires me in everything I do, but especially in telling love stories. I'm an ordinary girl living an extraordinary love and I'm so happy I get to share it with the world through my writing.
