How much will she risk for love?

Despite her dark past with a rock icon, Liza Glasner can't walk away from the man she loves with a fiery passion--sexy rock star Justice Cade. A surprise pregnancy and marriage give Liza the family she's craved since she was fourteen. But her love is tested when Liza's worst nightmare--Gene Hayes--bursts onto the scene, spreading lies and smears to tear her and Justice apart. Can Liza trust Justice to choose her over fame?

How far will he go for fame?

Justice fiercely loves his beautiful and resilient wife Liza, and he's determined to protect her from Gene Hayes. At the same time, he's loyal to his band. The four other men in Savaged Illusions are his brothers, and together, they are battling hard to come back from a humiliating defeat. But just as the pinnacle of success is within their reach, Justice discovers a truth that will either decimate his band or destroy his wife.

Can their love survive?

Secrets and betrayals explode in a heartbreaking twist that threatens to rip Justice and Liza apart forever.

Savaged Vows is book 2 in the Savaged Illusions Trilogy, and ends in a cliffhanger. Book 3, Savaged Devotion, will be released in September 2017.

Jennifer Lyon's contemporaries are huge emotion books. This series, like The Proposition, is a serial. It ends on a cliff-hanger and we won't get their HEA until the next book when she concludes this adventure in Liza and Justice's love story. For me this was a very hard book to read. It's because of my personal hot buttons and current stresses in my life. This is the middle of the series filled with conflict. Which is to be expected in the middle of any story. I trust Jennifer to get us through it but wow this book is powerful. I think my blood-pressure went up while I was reading it and I know I was dreaming about it. Justice is being split in two with his loyalties to the band AND Liza when she really needs him. Life has made Liza strong but she has demons coming back to haunt her. She intellectually understands Justice can't always be there for her but desperately needs his support. Oh, Gene Hayes is just plain EVIL. I can so see this happening in real life and maybe that's what makes it so hard for me to read. I had difficulty distancing myself from this story. I can't wait to get my hands on the conclusion so I can rest easy. Thank you Jennifer for including me in your ARC reading group so I could go on this journey with you and your fans.

While my overall feelings about this book are positive, there are a few mixed feelings. Time moved very quickly, though it's pretty easy to follow. It's just a little strange to jump several weeks at a time so often. Perhaps my biggest complaint is that the writing is on the wall regarding two very important things. I can't really divulge which things without giving away spoilers, but that was a little disappointing when Liza nor Justice seemed to have a clue. That being said, while Liza and Justice's connection wasn't quite as palpable, it still shone through their struggles even over the long distance. I didn't always love Justice's behavior, but I felt so bad for them both throughout the book. They're often just pieces on a chess board constantly being manipulated for others' fame based agendas. The last few chapters were particularly brutal and I absolutely bawled. On a side note, I appreciate how Jennifer Lyon demonstrates that rape is more about power than actual sex. Gene Hayes exercises his power in a multitude of ways and Liza is made a victim all over again without him ever touching her. This also shines light on how rape culture tends to blame the victim. Savaged Vows left off at an utterly heartbreaking time. I don't just crave the next book, I NEED it. After everything, I need the resolution to these characters' journey: the band, Justice and Liza, and most especially I have to know that Gene Hayes gets what he deserves in one way or another.

SAVAGED VOWS is the second installment in Jennifer Lyon’s contemporary, new adult SAVAGED ILLUSIONS erotic, rock romance trilogy focusing on twenty four year old lead singer for the rock band Savaged Illusions Justice Cade, and twenty year old college student/publicist Liza ‘Beth’ Glasner. For fans of Jennifer’s THE PLUS ONE CHRONICLES there is a slight cross-over with the appearance of Sloane Michaels and Drake Vaughn. SAVAGED VOWS should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately upon the events and cliff hanger of book one-SAVAGED DREAMS. Told from dual third person perspectives (Liza and Justice) SAVAGED VOWS continues to focus on the rise to stardom of the rock band Savaged Illusions, and Justice’s struggle to keep his personal and professional life separate. As the band continues on their road to success Liza’s past forges ahead to destroy any semblance of peace for our leading couple. Gene Hayes is determined to take down and shatter Liza’s fragile hold on both her relationship and her emotional sanity, and in doing so sabotages the band and the couple one betrayal, secret and lie at a time. What ensues is the growing bond between Justice and Liza, and the fall out when Justice picks stardom over the woman he loves. SAVAGED VOWS is an emotional story line of betrayal, tragedy and profound vengeance. Gene Hayes has set out to sabotage and shatter any chance at happiness and success for Liza and Savaged Illusions, and in doing sets into motion a series of events that will end in tragedy, destroying a family, a friendship and any chance at a happily ever after. All of the previous story line characters, including the members of the band, play secondary and supporting roles. Liza’s friends Emily and Nikki tag along for moral support; and Justice’s dad Noah reprises his role as the long-suffering former soldier whose PTSD is destroying what’s left of the relationship with his son. SAVAGED VOWS is a story of vengeance, betrayal, secrets and lies. As Justice and Liza’s personal life plays out before the media, their tenuous hold on sanity crumbles like a house of cards. Liza will come face to face with her past, the sins of her father, and the potentially life-altering reality that no one can be trusted including the man who once held her heart. The premise is heartbreaking and startling; the romance is intimate, sensual and intense; the characters are broken, passionate and lost. Jennifer Lyon will seduce your mind and captivate your imagination. SAVAGED VOWS ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.

Savaged Vows, (Savaged Illusions Trilogy 2), Jennifer Lyon Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  Romance I loved Savaged Dreams, the first part of this trilogy, and have been waiting for this installment. Luckily its not been too long so that was still fresh in my mind, and the final part is out this autumn. I hate waiting long periods between parts in duets/trilogies, I've lost the impetus often, especial when its a year or more....I know I'm not alone in that so a huge thank you to Jennifer for keeping the wait to a reasonable time ;-)  Anyway, the book...well, another winner from me. Lots of Beth/Liza and Justice, and of course the band and their way upwards in the fame search. Having lost the competition - in part due to the negative publicity around Beth and her past - they're now pulling things together and moving on, and upwards they hope. Its just one of those things that happen, none of them could have prevented it but understandably the band are feeling a little as though Beth is a bar to their future. They like her as a person but she is undoubtedly a force that can be used against them, and there's nothing they can do except for Justice and Beth to separate - and they've made it clear that's not happening.  The dramas move on rapidly in this part, scarcely has the ink dried on their marriage certificate than she's pregnant. Wow, their publicity officer really isn't happy about that, and urges Justice into some moves to prevent it harming the band. Some he does, some he stands out against, but its a compromise at best and he feels he's not being fair to Beth or the band much of the time.  Some of the measures isolate Beth from the band a bit, but she's also busy building her career, in a new and exciting job, spending time with her best friends. She does feel as though they're drifting though, with Justice being more and more wrapped up in band stuff. She understands hurts, especially given the nightmare of her past that still affects her badly at times.  Justice is stuck between the traditional rock and hard place, does he give up his dream? Will that affect the band badly if he leaves? And will he come to resent Beth? And of course money, they're all deeply in debt now and only carrying on with the tour can bring them out, and let him give Beth and the baby the lifestyle and protection he wants for them. He has a really tough time in this book, and there's the pressure of Noah too, his father who's struggling with PTSD. Jagged Edge ( or Sin - I can't quite recall their name..)  and Gene Hayes are still lurking around too, providing danger and dramas.  Its all action and just when you feel that's it, nothing worse can happen, there it is. Beth feels betrayed on all fronts and once more there's a nail biting finish. Its all very realistic, very genuine issues that could happen and its hard to see what else either of them could have done, or whether that would have made things worse. Its heartbreaking at times, and I felt so sad for all of them, really difficult choices, just as we have sometimes in real life.  Stars: five, another great read.
