Savor by Kate Evangelista
Vicious Feast #1
Genre: New Adult Paranormal
Mature and explicit content. Not recommended for readers below 18-years-old. Yup, you’ve got to be that old to read my story. Consider yourself warned.
I’m Dakota Collins, a tough talking, eye patch wearing, workaholic photography student. Why am I important? Well, maybe because I get to spend an entire month with Vicious, only the sickest indie rock band out there.
You see, I needed a subject for my Spring Showcase introspective in order to graduate. During a chance encounter at a club I’d been sent to cover for the Daily Gossip, our ironically named college paper, the features writer I usually teamed up with introduced me to the band—by accident, I might add. It involved a run in with a scary, bald bodyguard. Anyway, long story short, I signed a contract to take pictures of Vicious.
I should have known their handsome yet way too serious for his own good bassist, Luka Visraya, wouldn’t be able to keep his hands to himself. He’s gorgeous and all, but the way he smiles spelled trouble with a capital L. I’m in for a long month with him around.
Crazy shit happens and then some. So, if you want the skinny on Vicious and the events revolving around my stay at Lunar Manor, read my story.
Again, refer to the warning above.
RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars
What I Felt
Wow! What a book! It made me grab any opportunity to read the book and find out what really happened as soon as possible. I really enjoyed reading Savor and was pleasantly surprise when the characters were familiar to me. They are from Taste! You can read Savor as a standalone as I feel it doesn't affect much.
Dakota is a unique girl. Not only is she sporting an eye patch, she is passionate in photography. Reading about her is fun experience, especially when she thought about all the poses or scenes for her photography. I admire her for the strength she displayed in such situations. I also appreciate how the author slowly reveal small hints about how she got stuck with an eye patch.
Luka is the bassist of Vicious whom Dakota happened to come across in a club where she was taking photograph for her school's paper. Needless to say that Luka is totally cool but he is not without fault. Put the two characters together and you'll taking a fun ride through the book. Also, the supporting characters did a good job in bringing out the whole story.
The paranormal portion of the book came towards the end of the book rather suddenly and the book ended on a cliffhanger! Everything about Dakota is still largely a mystery and I'm dying to find out more about it in Book 2! I'll definitely be following the series!
