Dirty Bad Savage (Dirty Bad #2) by Jade West
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
They say Callum Jackson's a savage.
No home. No prospects. No self-restraint.
He's red-flagged on my system, a grade-1 aggression risk, totally off limits for a woman like me.
But the rules don't allow for my dangerous games; they don't bend for my twisted desires.
Callum Jackson is the most beautiful beast.
A beast I can't stop thinking about, can't stop wanting, can't stop hunting...
...I just pray to God this beast bites.
Sophia Harding runs a tight ship. She may work in the dregs of housing association slums, but her patch is on the way up.
Anti-social behaviour is down, employment is on the rise, and she's even been shortlisted for estate manager of the year.
It's looking good. Really good. Until Callum Jackson completes his jail time and lands right back on her doorstep.
She could do without a guy like him on her books: a failure of the system and a pain in the fucking ass.
She should tick the boxes, do her job and keep her distance – that's what the handbook says. The handbook says no one-on-one contact, no at-risk situations, no direct confrontation of any kind.
But the handbook doesn't know of her craving for hardcore submission.
The handbook has no fucking idea how she yearns to unleash Jackson at club Explicit, where his savage can really run wild.
The handbook doesn't know shit...
Woah. Alright first things first. After Dirty Bad Wrong I expected Dirty Bad Savage to be a bit...dirtier. It was great, I loved it, it just isn't as dirty. I suppose not every story can have that level of amazing sexy time in it and still be different. But this was just as wonderful as the first. Really I have loved everything I have read by this author thus far. She is simply amazing.
So Dirty Bad Savage. What a fun story. Callum and Sophie were awesome together. Plus it is not the "normal" story, but I wouldn't have expected that from Jade. Callum is younger than Sophie, poor, doesn't believe in love or anything like that, really he is jaded. Very much so. And he has just gotten out of jail and is returning to the streets he grew up on. His only companion is a dog that he loves so much. He would do anything for his dog. He is all he has in the world.
Sophie is an estate manager and is in charge of where Callum grew up. She is from a well to do family and they all want her to do something else with her life, but she loves her job. She is also a submissive and has become increasingly frustrated with the lack of good partners for her. She wants to be dominated like Masque did, but she can't seem to find that right fit with someone. Until she meets Callum.
Now Callum has never been in the BDSM world so he is not sure what he thinks. He likes rough sex, but what Sophie really likes is a bit different, though they still make it work. They connect as people and that lets the other pieces fall into place. Oh, it was fun watching these two come together. Plus you get to see Callum's introduction into this new world (with some help from Masque! Eeek!) and it was wonderful. He had aspirations early to be an artist, but his mom always shot it down and made him feel bad about that. He hasn't really had many good chances in his life, but then Sophie shows up and things start changing. He was great. Rough around the edges, but he just worked with her. They were amazing.
Overall this was a great read. Not as dirty as the first book, but just as fun to read.
