SAVAGE BONDS – Ana Medeiros
In the second searing thriller in the trilogy that has “everything you could possibly want and more” (San Francisco Book Review on The Raven Room), aspiring journalist Meredith Dalton is caught between murder, love, and the big city’s most adventurous sex club.
Journalism student Meredith Dalton is driven to launch her career with an exposé on The Raven Room, an illicit and exclusive sex club hidden in the shadows of Chicago’s Chinatown.
But Meredith’s also driven by desire for her lover, Julian Reeve, a card-carrying member of the club who has expanded her sexual horizons. When Meredith uncovers evidence that the recent murders of two women are connected to The Raven Room, and possibly to Julian, only tracking down the true killer can prevent her from an impossible choice between her two passions.
Unsure who to trust, Meredith zeros in on the killer and a web of organized crime. But what are the consequences of diving deeper and deeper into a dangerous world unwilling to relinquish its secrets?
“The Raven Room is really about the evolution of relationships, boundaries, and choices. . . . [A] satisfying story of emotional turbulence.” Midwest Book Review on The Raven Room
My Thoughts: 3.5/5 stars!
Anyone looking for a guilty pleasure read? If you said yes, then here is the mystery/thriller for you. With the romance elements to it and The Raven Room, being an exclusive sex club, it has all the necessary ingredients for a guilty pleasure thriller.
Meredith is a journalism student and she is determined to launch her career by writing an expose on The Raven Room. What is The Raven Room you ask? Well, it’s an exclusive and illicit sex club that is hidden in Chicago’s Chinatown. Only card-carrying members allowed. Meredith finds herself enamored with a member of the club, Julian Reeve. Not only is he of interest to her story, but he also plays a role in expanding her sexual horizons.
She tries her best to stay focused on the two recent murders that The Raven Room is believed to be connected to. Is Julian involved in any way? Who is the killer? Will Meredith be able to find the killer, even if it means picking between her two passions?
This may seem like more of an erotic novel, but there is the mystery, murder, and the dangerous world of organized crime. Are there ties to the mafia? What other secrets are there about The Raven Room?
I really enjoyed this one and the only reason why this wasn’t a solid 4 stars was because I wasn’t aware it was book two in the trilogy. I feel like I missed a little bit of information but would definitely go back and read THE RAVEN ROOM to get some pieces filled in!
