All paths lead to destruction in the new Torpedo Ink novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.
Savin “Savage” Pajari is convinced he’s not worth a damn thing. He’s not like his brothers. He’s a sadistic monster, a killer—a man no woman could truly love. So it completely throws him when a stranger risks her life for his, pushing him out of the way and taking the hit that would have sent him six feet under. If he had any kind of sense, he’d leave her alone, but Savage can’t get the woman with a smart mouth and no sense of self-preservation out of his head. With one kiss, he’s lost.
Seychelle Dubois has spent her entire life not feeling much of anything, until Savage comes along and sets her whole body on fire. Kissing him was a mistake. Letting him get close would be a catastrophe. He’s the most beautiful—and damaged—man she’s ever met. He has a way of getting under her skin, and what he’s offering is too tempting to resist.
Seychelle knows so little about Savage or the dangerous world of Torpedo Ink, but his darkness draws her like a moth to a flame. Loving him could mean losing herself completely to his needs—needs she doesn’t understand but is eager to learn. But what Savage teaches her could destroy her.
Annihilation Road is rough and gritty, but it is first and foremost a love story for Savage and Seychelle, and that is worth the read. ~ Amanda – Simply Love Book Reviews
Annihilation Road is the 6th book in the Torpedo Ink series and it’s the first in a duet about Savage Pajari, the sergeant-at-arms for the MC and his love interest. Seychelle Dubois saves Savage from being hit by a vehicle and it intrigues him to meet the woman who would risk her life in order to save his. One touch, one kiss later and he knew that this was the woman for him. Save is a sadist and he never thought he would find a woman to ease his pain and be able to handle the man he was trained to become.
There was a slow and calculated build to this story because it takes time to build trust in a relationship. Seychelle is a healer and she is alone in the world. There isn’t anyone to protect herself from her own powers. Savage makes it his business to know what it would take to have Seychelle as his woman. I like the path that this story is taking because she is a woman who won’t easily submit to Savage, yet she craves the pain and pleasure aspect of what Savage offers. She isn’t sure she can give Savage all he needs and so they put the brakes on things. There is a lot of soul searching in this story along with a ton of drama from 2 individuals who won’t leave Seychelle alone.
With any Torpedo Ink story there is plenty of interaction from the other bikers and their women from previous stories and Torpedo Ink business. The author has created a diverse and interesting blend of individuals and together they are a band of brothers that make a close-knit family of misfits. There is a touch of humor but what draws me into this story is that these men and women find themselves finding a person that gets them. They find someone to love them warts and all. Annihilation Road is rough and gritty, but it is first and foremost a love story for Savage and Seychelle, and that is worth the read. The next installment arrives in January and I can’t wait to see how this story concludes.
