Burn It Down was an explosive finale to the Savage Crew series.
Don’t tell the rest of the crew, but Pen and Gabe are my new favorite.
Penelope was a good girl, follows the rules, intelligent, and quiet. In a moment she let her overwhelming feelings slide out which landed her in a bit of hot water.
Gabe is from the wrong side of the tracks, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure he doesn’t get stuck there. He’s a mix of cocky alpha-hole and swoony. I loved him, I hated him, I wanted to hug him, I wanted to punch him.
Gabe and Pen had a past, and the anger Pen had for him was as palpable as the chemistry they shared. It was so clear that they had shared something profound, and that whatever it was before Gabe had lit the match that left their past in a pile of ashes. The thing is, with chemistry as strong as they share there were still embers in that pile of ash waiting for a little breeze to bring it back to a fiery blaze.
My feels weren’t prepared for Gabe and Pen’s story, my heart felt like a ping pong ball being hit back and forth, aching for Pen, breaking for Gabe, and so on, if there were ever a fictional couple to deserve a lifetime of happiness it was these two.
I loved the exchanges between Pen and Gabe. Pen was sassy with Gabe in a way she wasn’t with others, and Gabe was calm when Pen was close. He was her chaos and she was his tranquility.
I spent countless hours immersed in the Savage Crew world, it felt a bit bittersweet because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to these characters they’ve ingrained themselves in my heart.
Burn It Down is my new favorite in the Savage Crew Series. An all-consuming unputdownable blend of searing chemistry, a swoony alpha-hole, a heroine finding her inner strength, wicked retorts, witty banter, unceasing waves of feels, from giggles to tears, and ultra hot steam.
