This is a modern day "HOT" version of the Beauty and Beast story. We find that Niki Kincaid had it all money, power, wealth, women but one night suddenly changes all that. After claiming death to prevent those who tried to kill him before successful, Niko becomes a sulcus in his big, beautiful home where he runs his business and beds women who are paid for their trouble with a strict set of rules to prevent any emotions. After a particularly hard day, Niko sends his best-friend and most-trusted employee Jarod out to find him a new woman to bed.
Cambree Evans is down on her luck. She has had to post-pone college to work so that she can pay for nursing home care for her grandmother but is coming up short. Cambree takes Jarod up on the offer to sleep with Niko and follow his rules but soon finds herself falling in love with a man that she has never seen in the light. Niko is equally enamored with Cambree and finds himself throwing out his own rules.
This was a beautiful love story with a lot of twists and turns as well as just the right amount of suspense. The characters were beautifully written and interested. I found myself becoming invested with them the more I read. Ms. Stayton's dialogue is spot-on as I found myself emotionally vested in Niko's and Cambree's story. I even found myself tearing-up on a few occasions. I thought Savaged was an excellent book.
