Savior is the final book in the Kingwood Duet. It follows Savage, which must be read prior to Savior in order to understand any of it.

*Spoilers if you haven’t read Savage*
Savior resumes where Savage left off. Sara Jane is rushed to the hospital after being shot by Alexander’s enemy and it pulls you in immediately. Alexander is terrified of losing SJ and most of the first 10% of the book is his introspection on how much he needs her. That his life is only worth living because of her.

“Is there a way to trade my life for hers, my sins for hers, to die in her place instead? What kind of deal can I strike? What bargain can I negotiate? Tell me. Fucking tell me and I’ll do it. Anything.”

When SJ wakes from surgery, your heart breaks for everything they’ve lost. Neither one knows how to cope with their pain, so there’s some animosity from SJ towards Alex at first. It doesn’t last though, because he’s the reason she breathes. And he’s only living for her. And life is hard, but still so good because they have each other. Because nothing means more to them than the other. Am I getting on your nerves yet with my redundancy? Because that’s pretty much the gist of the first 30% of the book. At first, it’s heartrending and powerful, but after endless declarations of their undying love and little movement with the plot, it just becomes enough, already.

Once the plot gets moving, it’s interesting and hard to put down. There is a pretty big plot point that happens about 75% in that is nerve-wracking. However, much less time is spent on it than necessary. And THEN there’s a HUGE twist not long after, and I was still left with countless questions even after I finished the book. I don’t expect to have all of my questions answered when I read a book, but something as big as this demands more explanation than what’s provided.

I loved Savage . It was the perfect blend of romance and suspense. Unfortunately, Savior was too unbalanced for me to give it 5 stars. I am happy Jason is getting his own story, though. That guy needs a HEA.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
