I loved Start a Fire, but there was something special in the pages of Through the Ashes that made Bex and Asher my new favorite couple in The Savage Crew series.
Bex’s world is falling down around her and the whispers have started in the school hallways with a guarantee that it’s only going to get worse. She’s a good girl that does what’s expected of her until she hits a point where she needs to not be that girl, even if just for a night.
Asher is drowning in heartbreak and sets his sights on Bex to make himself feel something other than pain. He is a golden boy with a newfound darkness inside, and every ounce of that is directed at Bex.
Asher and Bex start with a fiery chemistry, there’s a lot more between them than chemistry, and all of those things set them on a path of wading through landmines. It’s not a matter of when, but who will be the one that imlodes everything between them. The author did a superb job of bringing these characters to life on the pages, delivering an impactful and deeply emotional storyline.
It only took a few pages before I was completely immersed in the Savage Crew world, and I didn’t stop until I read every single word. A mesmerizing blend of fiery chemistry, anger fueled tension that leads to unholy hotness, witty banter, so many feels, and tears were shed. I loved every single heartbreaking second of Bex and Asher’s story.
This story touches on some deep subject matters, and I feel as though the author did a wonderful job of treating these things with an honest portrayal of the devastation such things can bring to the people connected to those suffering from addiction.
