Review: Savor (The Empire Chronicles) by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Savor - Cover
About SAVOR:
Jared is Vera's perfect man—until he opens his mouth. An incredible body and set of wings can only go so far when everything he says seems designed to make her mad. Still, she can't deny her intense attraction or the fact that he is the closest thing she has to a friend.

Jared doesn't go for bear shifters, especially ones that are related to his ex, but he can't resist Vera's charm or the way she understands him better than anyone else.

As suspicions build and loyalties are tested, Vera and Jared realize that they may not be able to trust anyone but each other.

My Thoughts:  I adore this series.  In fact, The Crescent Chronicles and The Empire Chronicles, which is a spin-off from that series, are in my top ten favorite paranormal series.  Jared, the main male heartthrob in this book, has been one of my favorite characters since the very beginning, and I was so excited about getting more of his story.  

Jared has had his ups and his downs throughout the course of the series, and despite the "downs" he's recently experienced, I was so very happy to see him finally with a girl of his own.  Jared and Vera are perfect for each other.  She is truly "the female version" of Jared, as is reiterated more than once.  I loved Vera's character also.  She is snarky, strong-willed, independent, and speaks her mind about anything and everything.  The sparks that fly between Vera and Jared are more like an inferno, so needless to say, the romances is hot.

As far as the story goes, It was action-packed and had me totally captivated from beginning to end.  I literally did not want to put it down.  There is never a dull moment in this novel, that's for sure.  More mysteries and secrets are revealed, with many more waiting to be solved.  The ending of the book has left me dying for the next installment.  Though the ending leaves you feeling like saying "No, I want more," it also ended at a point that doesn't leave you feeling devastated and frustrated until the next book comes out, but rather longing for that next installment in a good way.  If you are a paranormal romance fn, this this book and this entire series is one you won't want to miss.  .
