Giveaway & Review ~ Savaged by Nacole Stayton


The twist of a knife shredded Niko Kincaid’s world all around him, leaving him with two choices—accept his fate and die, or fight to live.

He chose to fight, but the aftermath became a daily reminder, carved into his once flawless flesh.

Despite years of self-imposed solitude, Niko hungers for companionship and suffers from an aching loneliness that the darkness cannot satisfy. He temporarily soothes his pain with women, hired women, whose only purpose is to service him.  Easy.

He didn’t expect a complication like Cambree Evans, but desperation corrupts even the most innocent.

When emotions blend with lust, will Cambree's softness and ability to look past Niko's flaws be the one thing that releases him from his own personal hell?

Will the monster in the dark prove that his savaged heart is worth saving?

   I’ve gone days, weeks, maybe even months without stopping and looking at myself. There isn’t much to see, my body is just a shell, a mask of sorts. The man staring back at me resembles a beast hiding my true self underneath its scarred reflection. I’m not even truly living. The death certification hidden away in my private safe is proof of that.

My lids slip down over my eyes as I remember the image I used to see when I came into this room – a man with russet hair that was a little longer on top and shorter around my ears and neck, dark eyes that were alluring and inviting, a little stubble on my jawline that screamed sex appeal. I was a businessman through and through, but the sexy gaze that I kept on my face at all times was enough for women to want me, a man in a suit, a man who broke all the rules.

My confidence died with the old me. 

Nacole Stayton is the Amazon Bestselling author of The Upside of Letting Go, as well as other new adult and contemporary romance titles, including A Graceful Mess and In the Lyrics. She is twenty-something years young and currently resides in the Bluegrass State where she spends her days working at a local hospital in the billing department and nights writing vigorously on her current novel. She has a passion for helping others and wears her University of Kentucky gear proudly. While her husband loves all things outdoors, Nacole enjoys the finer things in life, like getting pedicures while reading on her Kindle. She is passionate about her faith, family, and The Vampire Diaries. 


My Thoughts:

Our leading man is Niko. He was brutally attacked a few years ago. Now he hides away, in the dark so that no one will see his now scarred face and because one of the attackers were never found.

Cambree is struggling to take care of her Grandmother and her money situation is in dire straits. When her card is declined at a coffee shop, Jared approaches her about a job offer. Jared is Niko's assistant and he was sent on a mission to get a companion for him. Cambree fits the description that Niko asked for to a tee. 

Cambree goes into the arrangement blind. That is, she gets to know Niko in the dark with only a few shadows. It just goes to show us that beauty is only skin deep and to truly know someone, you must dig deeper. 

Their connection was soul deep and I loved it.

This book had intrigue, danger, despair, devotion, a deep connection, deception, and some wonderful conversations.

I was deeply engrossed in the story and couldn't put it down. I read it in one setting.

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. I really liked it. :-)
