Monster (Savages, #1)

Monster by Jessica Gadziala

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

Alex has had one mission since she was sixteen: 

destroy the man who destroyed her life. 

And all was going to plan until one night, a huge 

mammoth of a man breaks into her apartment and kidnaps her, 

holding her hostage for the very man she was bent on bringing down. 

Breaker has one rule: he doesn’t deal in women. 

But when he’s conned into a job for the city’s most ruthless 

crime lord, he finds himself in charge of a fiery-tempered 

hacker who he can’t seem to keep his hands off of. 

When passions ignite and feelings emerge, will Breaker be 

able to reconcile his loyalties before it is too late or 

will their shaky foundation of trust start crumbling beneath 

their feet?


Great story, love the characters!

This is my first book from Jessica Gadziala and I really liked it. There were references to a bunch of different gangs or crime families within the city that Breaker, the Hero and his “brother” Shooter have worked for in the past as well as the worst of them Lex Keith. It seems many of Jessica’s other books are about characters from these other crime families, one of which is an MC, one is a military compound, one is more mafia like with loan sharks that run a gym.

However, Lex is the ultimate bad guy. He runs the largest criminal empire and Breaker, who is a Fixer of sorts doesn’t ever do jobs for Lex. Breaker has rules, he won’t hurt women or children and Lex is known for abusing and raping women. So Breaker does his best to stay under Lex’s radar. Until one day Lex tells Breaker that he has kidnapped Breaker’s best friend and MC brother, Shooter and he needs him to do one job. Breaker has to kidnap someone named Alex Miller and wait for a call from Lex, before he makes the kill.

Breaker has no choice so he does it, but finds out at the kidnap that Alex is not a man as he originally thought. After holding her, things heat up and he isn’t comfortable with killing a woman and knows Shooter wouldn’t be either, so he finds out why Lex wants her and starts working with her to get them all out of the bind they are in. Turns out Breaker isn’t the monster in the story after all.
