Savage is the 4th book in Vanessa and Renee’s Wolf Ranch series, and the first one that isn’t one of the Wolf brothers, although it could be argued that the Wolf boys are Clint’s brother because after their parents died, Clint’s parents basically adopted the boys and helped them out as much as possible, so there’s that. So let’s get into the gig, shall we?
Clint helps out his pack as much as possible, as well as working on the ranch, but he has one really important and super-secret job. He’s an enforcer for the ruling council of the shifter world. There aren’t a lot of them, and their identities are all kept secret. That’s because they are the ones who handle the shifters who are endangering the secret of the shifters. So, he’s the one who gets called out when there is a shifter who is on drugs and killing humans. Clint has to go out and kill him. During that mission, it just reminds him that he can’t have a mate, because the fact that he had been an enforcer would put his mate at risk. What Clint doesn’t know is that fate has other plans for him.
Becky is a nurse, and she’s Audrey’s best friend. At Audrey’s bachelorette party, Clint and Becky hooked up after Clint got his nose broken protecting her. It was some wild and crazy fucking, and Becky was totally down with it. And then they both walked away. And it seemed like everything was good, except she couldn’t stop thinking of him. Then she found out that she would never be able to stop thinking about him because that one night had one huge repercussion. Clint’s little swimmers got through the condom and knocked Becky up. She hasn’t seen him (mostly because he’s been gone), and she’s not sure that she’s going to tell him she’s pregnant. It’s not that she wants to hide from him, but there are several reasons why she has to do it.
Clint is a good and honorable man. It really tears him up to do his job, but he really does it because he knows that the job has to be done. He’s also a good man because he wants to protect the people in his care. I think that he needed to stop holding onto some of his secrets sooner, because the truth will set you free.
Becky is incredibly strong. She’s had to be, and I’m really impressed by her. She has to handle some stupid shit, and she does, well. I think that having some backup is definitely good for her, but I feel like she could probably go through a lot more on her own, but it’s good she doesn’t have to.
I love this world, and I’m looking forward to more in it.
Ugh, Creepy McCreeperson is creepy and stalkery AF.
OK, that’s all for today. Go check it out! Happy reading!
