Release Date: May 13th
Cover Design: Regina Wamba, Mae

~ Synopsis ~

I am the monarch of Manhattan’s underworld.
A corrupt king, ruling a sinful empire.

I wasn’t born to the crown.
Nevertheless, I wear it well.

Aislinn Granville is the Crown Jewel of my empire—my queen.
To my enemies, she’s my Achilles heel—a perfect pawn.

Without her, I am a wounded warrior.
A ruthless, relentless beast.

There is nowhere she can be taken that I won’t find her.
No adversary I won’t crush to get her back.

Even if I have to burn this city to the ground. Savior Teaser 5

With the jaw-dropping ending in Cruel Sanctuary, I’ve been on pins and needles to see what Tara Leigh had in store next for Damon and Aislinn, and she has certainly served up a passionate and suspenseful follow up with Corrupt Savior, the exciting conclusion to her Wages of Sin duet! 

‘I am an unguarded fortress. My gates are open, my weapons surrendered. All for this woman. For my spitfire with the power to incinerate me.’

How can you resist a hero that completely falls head over heels for his heroine? Seriously, Damon’s heart just totally melted for Aislinn, and I enjoyed seeing so much feeling and depth to his character. Aislinn was still a spitfire in the way she fought to get her freedom back, but I was kind of surprised with the way she jumped so easily back into his arms once again without more of a struggle. However, I really enjoyed them together and loved their passion which I’m always a sucker for!

‘Damon King is no storybook prince, and yet he makes me crave a picture perfect, happily ever after ending. He is the man of my dreams. The devil who danced into my heart, the monster who slayed my nightmares, the lover of my fantasies.’

Tara Leigh writes with the perfect balance of sweet and steam and with the twists and turns in the story, this was a really suspenseful read. I still would have liked more depth into Damon’s ‘corrupt’ business dealings, because I’m not sure that I felt like his character was that dark or corrupt. Again, I like the nitty gritty details, but I’m not really complaining because I thought that Damon and Aislinn’s story was still a very engaging read throughout!

I definitely look forward to more of Leigh’s books, and she actually has several that I’ve got my eyes on right now, including Rock King, because I love my rockstar romances, and Legacy of Lies as well!

My heartbeat is an erratic, distracting pitter-patter against my ribs as I take in the stark beauty of the man standing in front of me. He looks like the same man I ran from. Almost.

The same rich black hair and inky eyelashes. The same strong, shadowed jawline and high, elegant cheekbones. The same spark of intensity lighting up those dark, dark eyes.

But now there are smudges beneath them. And faint horizontal lines, like the silvery remnants of a shattered spider web, crossing his forehead.

Damon is glaring at me like an adversary he’s torn between spanking or fucking. There is yearning in his gaze, a faint glimmer of tenderness beneath his infuriated expression.

I like it. A lot.

The panic and fear and pure terror that filled my veins just a few hours ago hasn’t yet evaporated. Those intense emotions are still there, like toxins that have yet to be flushed from my system. I don’t want to be treated with kid gloves. Not by Damon King.

I need his intensity now more than ever. I am desperate to revel in the raging storm Damon and I create when we’re together. The kind of storm that deserves a name. Deserves to be written in history books for its power . . . and for the toll of its destruction.

I want the shocking illumination of lightning. The ominous energy of thunder.

I want to give and take.

Clash and break.

Writhe and shake.

“Damon.” I say his name like a warning. I need the savage who claimed me as his own. My savage king.

He presses a firm kiss to my forehead, his fingers lightly pushing into the hair at the base of my scalp. “Tell me this,” he says. “Is there any hurt I can’t kiss better?”

The throaty rumble of Damon’s voice is like a liberal pour of molasses on my frayed nerves. “No.” My nose is flush with his chest and I breath deep that scent I didn’t think I would ever smell again. Wood and whiskey and raw masculinity. So damn intoxicating.

He sweeps his tongue along the rim of my ear. “Is there any hurt I can’t lick better?”

The tension in my shoulders eases as I flatten my palms against his chest. “No.”

Damon lifts my chin, our eyes locking on each other. “Is there any hurt I can’t fuck better?”

My cheeks warm as I draw my lower lip between my teeth. Then I shake my head slowly, “No.”

He smiles that darkly seductive grin and my stomach flips. “Let’s go take a shower.”

I nod my head eagerly. A long hot shower sounds perfect. A long hot shower—with my savage king—sounds downright exquisite. By the time the water is running, my borrowed bathrobe is just a white smudge of bad memory strewn across the tile floor.

Damon begins unbuttoning his shirt and I eagerly reach for his belt. When he is as naked as I am, he cups my chin between his thumb and forefingers and tips it upward. His kiss is hard but not punishing. The perfect amount of pressure.

I moan low in my throat.

He growls in return. And when we pull apart, we are wearing matching lust-drunk grins.

“Do you trust me?” he asks.

“I thought you said I shouldn’t trust anyone who has to ask.”

“I’m asking now.”

The truth falls from my lips. “With my life.” Savior Teaser 1

  1. I’m so happy to hear you liked the way this one wrapped things up! I read the first book based on your review and I have also been eagerly awaiting this book. I’ve already downloaded it. I just need time to read it! Great review!

    1. She could’ve taken it in a lot of different directions, but it worked for me and I enjoyed it! I look forward to hearing what you think…I have some questions for you when you’re done! 😃

  2. I’m back with another comment because I just finished this one yesterday. I liked it. It surprised me when I didn’t think it would. I also gave it 4 stars.

    1. Gosh, would you quit being such an awesome reader and reviewer??? I can’t keep up with you – haha! I’m kidding, and really glad you enjoyed it! I was a little worried in the beginning, but Leigh pulled it off. I’m sure I’ll get to your reveiw soon, but did you think Damon seemed as dark and dangerous as he was supposed to be?

      1. I’m just a fast reader and I don’t really watch TV and I’m stuck at 3 hours of soccer practice a week. LOL.
        I don’t think I’ll review this one other than on GR. I didn’t have enough to say about it. I don’t know that he was as dark. He did some drastic things, but he was kind of missing an edge maybe?

        1. I used to go to the coffee shop and work on the blog during those long practices too! Unfortunately, we’ve gotten a little hooked on Netflix these days, and I’ve found that I’m a huge binge watcher. It’s just one more thing to add to the pile of what’s thrown off my blogging mojo lately, but things will settle down here soon. Maybe that’s what it was – he was pretty mushy in this one, which was sweet. but overall made the story come across differently. I still thought it was really entertaining tho!
