Savior by Jessica Gadziala

A man like Paine told you to follow him into hell, you ignored the demons and fire and went with him.

Savior by Jessica Gadziala
Elsie has a problem. She has a mystery she is bent on solving, a mystery that led her to run for her life down the streets of Navesink Bank until she found herself rescued by a sexy stranger.

Paine has a past. He’s done everything in his power to move on from it, to distance himself from the things he has done. But then one night he finds himself saving a woman whose naive dabbling in matters she doesn’t understand threatens to drag him right back into the world he had done unspeakable things to escape from in the first place…

Paine was absolutely delicious! Like I mean, he was fi-i-i-i-i-ne! One of them boys who stood out like a diamond in the rough. If you ever spent time in the hood and found yourself captivated by the light-skinned brother with the light eyes... you know. So Paine and his fine self used to run the Third Street Gang and when he got out, he started his own tattoo business. And he was successful. He had an amazing family, great friends (big up Breaker and Shooter), and a pretty great life.

Then Elsie comes through, running for her life, and what's a man to do but stop to help a beautiful damsel in distress. Unfortunately, Elsie doesn't see herself as a damsel. Her rich, white privilege has afforded her the luxury of thinking she's above it all. She's virtually untouchable. That is, until she's touched and starts to realize that maybe she's a damsel after all.

I liked learning about Paine's past. I knew he was involved with the gang, but I didn't know the levels of it and I didn't understand how he got out. So now I know and I feel blessed about it. I'm really really hoping that his brother, Enzo, gets a book. I haven't gone through all of the blurbs for JG's books, so if he does have one, can someone let me know which one it is? I loved seeing Breaker and Shooter and their women in this book. I loved the brotherly love. I obviously loved Paine. Elsie... I could kinda take her or leave her. I think what's really getting to me is the heaviness and outright shoved-down-my-throat intensity of the author's push for feminism. It's turning me off of her heroines. And I have a feeling that it's only going to get worse when I get to Repo's story.

Thankfully, the heroes and the overall plot of these stories are what keeps me going and keeps me loving the heck out of these books because I don't intend on stopping!
