Thrasher - K.L. Savage

 




Title: Thrasher
Series: Royal Bastards MC: Portland Oregon #1
Author: K.L. Savage
Genre: Dark Romantic Suspense/Organized Crime
Release Date: February 26, 2021


BLURB

War can never be forgotten.

No matter how many years have gone by.
No matter how many roads I’ve travelled.
No matter how many women I lose myself in.
The memories remain.

And on top of it all, I have the Dear John letter memorized in my head I received the day of the bombing.
War and love can go straight to hall because I’m done with both.
The only solace I have is the club.
We’ve been traveling awhile now and it’s time to go home.
But before we do, I’m collecting my mark and hopefully Reaper remembers.
Because I’m not leaving Vegas without it.

Only, I never thought I’d want a beautiful blondie instead.
There’s a catch.
She’s off-limits because she’s The President’s sister.
Of the Ruthless Kings.
I don’t want love.
And I sure as hell don’t want war.
I’ve lived both and both nearly killed me.
But I can’t seem to stay away, and my terms have changed for the debt has changed.

I’m not leaving without Delilah.
The damn woman’s made me believe in love again.
And I’m not letting that go.
Even if it means I have to fight.

What’s that saying?
Nothing is fair in love and war.

If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

BLURB

The beautiful, ethereal creature ran across the road on my way home one night. I nearly hit her and ended up wiping out in the process. A little dazed, I ran after her…

And found her in the woods. Dirty and cold from living on the streets for weeks—but still so breathtaking, I was sure I was dreaming her.

Delaney is deaf, scared, and on the run from her uncle.

But now that I’ve found her, I won’t let anything hurt her ever again.

She makes me feel something I’ve never felt before. This tightness in my chest causes the beast within me to snarl unless she’s beside me. She becomes my obsession, my reason to get out of bed in the morning. She makes me want to be…better. For her.

I’m never letting this girl go.

No matter who tries to take her from me.

EXCERPT

I inhale the scent that has haunted me for two months. Strawberries. She smells like fresh strawberries.
My voice comes out gravelly when I speak to her. “Why did you do it? Just tell me why.”
She shivers when my breath passes over her neck.
“Why did I do what?” she says, confused.
My hands tighten around her biceps.
I growl in her ear, “Don’t do that. Don’t play fucking dumb with me, Jess. Tell me why you made me go away.”
Her body goes rigid, and she rips her arms out of my grasp. Her elbow slams into the wall, and she curses. With each movement, her ass presses against me more.
“Let me out of here, Allen,” she says, as she tries to twist her body so she can turn to face my direction.
I chuckle because it’s funny; she thinks I will listen to her.
“It’s not funny!” Jessica snaps.
I smirk, and tell her, “It really is. You think I’m gonna listen to you, but you’re wrong. It’s my way now, baby.”
She huffs and rolls her beautiful blue eyes at me.
She hisses, “Nothing is your way, baby! You don’t own me, Allen. I don’t owe you any explanations. And if I recall correctly, you’re the one that walked the hell out and didn’t think twice about it.”
In the process of her spewing her line of shit, her elbow flies back and connects with my stomach.
I grumble, “Stop moving.”
I place my arms around her waist to stop her movements.
“Let me go! Now!” she demands.
I grow serious, and say gruffly, “Do you know how much I want you right now?”
My hands move to her hips and I give them a tight squeeze, rasping out, “How bad I want to fuck you right here in this tiny ass airplane bathroom? The more you fight with me, the harder I get, baby.”
She releases a shaky breath as her body trembles. Jessica doesn’t say a word as I slowly glide my hands under the hem of her shirt. This wasn’t part of my plan. But fuck it. I’m drawn to her and her tight little body. I’m still mad as hell because she thinks she has the right to be pissed at me, but we can deal with that situation later. Right now, I need to touch her.
I don’t give a damn about myself. It’s all about her right now.

Tell me your deepest, darkest wish...
And I will make it come true.
One whisper ...
One single wish ...
And I bought her soul.

TRAILER



EXCERPT

She isn’t as innocent as she once believed.
And now she’s here to come and find out why.
I’m quietly reading my book in the middle of my study on my comfy armchair near the fireplace when she enters. The door closes softly behind her as she comes closer and stops on the red carpet right in front of me.
I lower my book to meet her gaze with a penetrative stare.
“I’m ready,” she says.
My tongue darts out to wet my lips. Right on schedule.
“Are you sure?” I raise a brow.
She nods, standing tall and proud even though I think she knows damn well what she’s asking from me.
“I deserve the truth,” she says, swallowing hard. “Show me what I did.”
My eyes narrow as adrenaline rushes through my veins, filling me with excitement. I put aside the book and lean over on my elbows, tapping my fingers together. “You deserve …”
“Punishment.”
My cock became hard just from that word spilling out of her mouth.
A grin tugs at my lips as I lean back in my seat and watch her. “Beg.”
She sucks in a breath and licks her lips. “Please … punish me for my sins.”
I could listen to her say those words every second of the day.
Instead, I jump up and charge at her, clasping her throat in a single hand. She shudders, beads of sweat rolling down her forehead as I tilt her head backward and look at the pale skin underneath my fingers. She’s vulnerable, completely at my mercy … perfect.
And all it took was a nudge, a single instance of seeing the truth in front of her own eyes.
All this time, I was searching when the answer to the problem was right in front of me.
She saw in Anna what she could never see when she looked at me: Her own guilt.
And now she’s come to repent.
Her crystal clear eyes peer straight into mine, and I can’t help but feel moved. She came to me out of her own free will. And now I will be her undoing.
I push her down, down, down until her legs cave underneath her, and she slowly kneels on the carpet. I go back to my armchair to sit down again and continue watching her, wishing I could see into her mind.
“What do you think will happen now?” I ask, rubbing my chin.
“You will do whatever you want with me,” she replies with a sigh. “And I will obey.”
“Why?” I ask. “Give me one good reason.”
We stare each other down for a second. Her answer is the single most important thing right now, and there is only one right one.
“I don’t want to be free. Not without knowing why I was here. I need to know. I want to know the truth. To confess,” she says, every word costing her more of her soul.
A wicked smile spreads across my lips. “I’ve waited forever for those words.”
A blush spreads across her cheeks.
“And what do you think I want you to do?” I ask, cocking my head.
She’s silent for a moment before twisting her hand behind her back and peeling away the zipper that holds her dress together until it falls to the floor and leaves her completely naked on her knees.
I’d be lying if I said it didn’t turn me on and make me rock hard.
As I shift in my seat, the burning pain in my back is a constant reminder of what it costs me to go over the edge. But for her, I’m willing.
“Come,” I say.

EXCERPT

Even in the dim moonlight, I could see the hard glint in his eyes as he advanced, his arms raised. Startled, I stumbled backward, wrapping my hands around the post at my back to steady myself, and then followed his gaze.
Horrified, I realized the rounded neckline of my gown had pushed down when he'd lifted me onto his shoulder. The curves of my br**sts were spilling over the top, and I could see the white lace edge of my bra. From my position on the bench, my chest was now practically at his eye level, completely on display.
“Christ, babygirl,” Damien growled before lunging for me.
With a squeal, I dipped under his outstretched arm and scrambled in my bare feet along the bench to the other side of the gazebo. Keeping one steadying hand on the post, I yanked up the neckline of my dress.
Once again pointing a finger in his direction, I warned, “Don’t you touch me!”
His mouth twisted in a grin. “We are long past that being an option, my malen'kiy padshiy angel.”
Since he barely remembered to feed me as a child, my stepfather definitely never took the time to teach me his native tongue. I really only knew a few curse words and the phrase useless brat in Russian.
I narrowed my gaze. “What does malen'kiy padshiy angel mean?” I asked, sounding it out phonetically.
Reaching down, Damien pinched the hem of my dress between his finger and thumb. He pulled on the pink velvet. “It means my little fallen angel.”
My cheeks flushed at the implied intimacy of such a nickname, not to mention the sexy way he’d said it.
To be honest, I had never liked the sound of the Russian language. It had always sounded course and guttural to my untrained ears, like they were grinding rocks with their teeth as they spoke. It wasn’t the same with Damien. When he spoke Russian, it was more like the low warning purr of a lion.
He twisted the excess fabric in his hand. The dress pulled tight around my hips. I resisted his tug as I clung to the post behind me. He twisted his fist again. This time the dress shifted down, once more exposing the top of my bra. Without thought, I let go of the post and flattened both palms protectively over my chest.
It gave him the perfect opportunity.
With a swift tug, he propelled my body forward, sending me crashing into his arms. It was like hitting a brick wall. Grasping his shoulders for purchase, I still couldn’t stop the momentum and slid down until my knees hit the padded bench. Now all I had to do was tilt my head upwards for my mouth to be only inches from his….
Time stood still.
I cried out and tried to escape.
Damien leaned in close, his lips caressing my ear as he whispered in a low soothing voice, “Shhh… malyshka. I won’t hurt you. Not if you give me what I want.”
I started at the double-entendre of his words.
He slipped a finger under my chin and raised my head. His eyes were such a dark blue they were practically black. They gave away nothing.
With his thumb, he caressed my lower lip. Smearing the clear shimmering gloss I had just put on. Keeping his focus on me, his hand slipped lower to the opening of my dress. He pulled on the neckline till one of the delicate buttons popped. With the dress gaping open, he could once more see the white lace of my bra.
His thumb swiped the upper curve of my right br**st, then the left, marking them with a shimmering trail of glitter from my lipstick.
I bit my lip to keep from crying out, whether from misplaced desire or fear, I had no idea.
Damien ran his knuckle back and forth over the upper swell of my left breast. He observed darkly, “In my line of work, there are so many creative ways to make a person talk.”
He pressed his hips against my body, and I could feel the push of his erect c**k against my stomach. I inhaled sharply as if pulling away from a hot brand.
He leaned his head down and whispered against my open mouth. “So. Many. Creative. Ways.”
My ears buzzed with the sound of the water lapping against the shore and my own hesitant breath. Beneath my hand, there was the steady drumbeat of his heart. My lips parted, and for a spare moment, we shared the same air.
He lifted his right arm and cradled my cheek. My skin, chilled by the night air, felt cool compared to the heat of his palm. The pad of his thumb caressed the outline of my cheekbone.
“Now tell me, who hurt you, babygirl?”
My heart skipped a beat. Part of me yearned to curl up in his arms and spill all my problems onto his big shoulders.
Twisting my head to the side, I lowered my gaze. “It’s nothing.”
Placing a finger under my chin, he forced me to turn back. “It’s far from nothing. Someone hit you. That’s not acceptable. You need to tell me who so I can deal with the matter.”
My curiosity got the better of me. “Deal with the matter? What are you going to do?”
His jaw shifted as he inhaled deeply through his nose. “That is none of your concern. Just give me the name.”
“None of my concern? You’ve got that backwards. I can’t see how any of this is your concern.”
Damien wrapped his free arm around my waist, placing his palm against my lower back and pulling me forward till his hips pressed into my stomach. He leaned down till his lips were barely a whisper from mine. “If you think that, then you haven’t been paying attention.”
His lips claimed mine.
