"Have you ever looked at a stranger and felt yourself going back to another time in your life? A time you just want to completely forget."

Wow! I  was not expecting any kind of emotions going into Affliction. It just broke my heart learning about Sy past in his flashbacks. I did not read any detailed reviews so I was not prepared to shed some tears. For me that was the best experience of not knowing. He is standoffish in the beginning towards Holly that I did have a hard time connecting with his character. For me the flashbacks helped me understand why he does not let any one close to him, feel his pain and was able to connect with his character. He ended up being a broken, sexy dirty talker, alpha male biker hero who I just wanted to see get his HEA

This is the second book I read from River Savage and the second heroine I had a hard time connecting with in the beginning. I do not know how to really describe her but she was just a little over the top energetic for me. Thank goodness because of the plot line she did take it down a notch and was able to connect more with her.

Plot line was unpredictable. So many times I thought the author was going to go a certain direction. Thankfully to my surprise she did not as it led for a better read. This could of easily been a 5 Star read for me but after while I felt like "what more bad stuff can happen to Holly, good night give the girl a break".

Overall I ending up loving Affliction as it was emotional and unpredictable. Sy and Holly were both broken and perfect for each other. I was rooting for them to get their HEA.



  1. I've just read a MC book that didn't work well for me, so you did me a favour by reviewing this because boy, it sounds quite good and I'd like to get back on track! ;)

    1. I really enjoyed this one better than boook 1.

  2. I really had a good time with the emotion in this book as well, so good.

  3. LOL I've thought that on some before. Man they need a break! That's awesome things changed and you were able to connect to the heroine :)

    1. I know why have so much over the top bad stuff happen to the heroine. A few incidents with her would of worked just fine. Thankfully I connected with the heroine finally because it would of ruined the book for me.


Hello Lovelies. Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear from you.
