ARC Review: Savage Ice by Cynthia Eden

He’s been protecting her since he was sixteen years old…

Beau LeBlanc has a killer grin, a voice that can seduce a saint, and a serious reputation for being mad, wickedly bad, and exceedingly dangerous to know. Growing up, everyone always thought he was trouble with a capital T…until one night the bad boy became a hero. He rushed into a burning house and saved her—Avalon Trahan. He still bears the scars from the flames on his body, but it was Avalon who marked his soul. For her, he wanted to be more than just the most dangerous guy in town.

They grew up. He kept watching her.

Beau knows that he’s obsessed. He also knows that someone has to look after Avalon because the fire wasn’t the last time that her life was in danger. Over the years, he’s had to step in when she needs help…not that she knew he was there. He stayed in the shadows. Watching. Waiting. And eliminating the threats that came her way. You didn’t screw with what belonged to him.

She’s been his fantasy for years. He’s been her dark hero.

He never expected Avalon to walk into his bar. To come straight to him. But when she does, she’s a temptation he can’t resist. Beautiful, bold, and smart, she’s everything he has ever wanted. Desire explodes between them. A need he has fought for so long is suddenly a blazing inferno that he can’t control. But Avalon needs Beau now more than ever before. A killer has her in his sights—a man who loves to see the world burn. And this predator won’t stop until he finishes what he started years ago… The fire is going to come for Avalon again. And this time, he’ll make sure no one is there to save her.

Author’s The Ice Breakers are back once again! A serial arsonist is ready to set the world ablaze. To stop him, Beau and Avalon will have to trace a trail of murders back to the killer. Avalon is a true-crime author with ties to the Ice Breakers, and she will need their backup to unravel the mystery of her past. She’s also going to need some serious protection. Good thing Beau is more than willing to get up close and personal with her. Prepare for smoking-hot pages, danger that will chill your heart, and a hero who is too well acquainted with the dark side of love…and obsession.
I'm always happy when I see a new Cynthia Eden book. She's one of my very favorite authors. I just love her characters. She has some of the best heroes. They are the best alpha men. They protect your while letting you be your own persons and the love you unconditionally. Besides her great characters she often makes me laugh when I read her books. Certain lines in her book just hit me the right way. I don't want to ruin anything for anyone but just remember "crime boss" when you are reading. 

The beginning of this story starts off strong. You see how they meet and quickly get to know them by the first chapter. I don't always like insta-love but with these two it just worked. You honestly felt like they loved each other from the moment they met. The way they act with each other you forget that they really don't know each other. 

I so love Beau. I will admit I forgot we met him in the prior book in the series. I took me a bit to connect him with that story. I'm not sure why. I totally loved him in that book. I still loved him in this one. The way he made it his mission to protect Avalon even though she didn't have a clue it was happening was sweet. Stalkerish but still sweet. He knows it's not the greatest look but can't help himself. I think it goes back to feeling unloved and unworthy. When he does something good, he went a little too far with it. Sadly, he couldn't see all the other good things he had done because he doesn't think much of himself. 

You'll love Avalon. She's fearless and one of the nicest people. Her interactions with Beau and so funny I just love them together. I love how she has kept him in her heart all these years. Once she decides that she cares for Beau that all she cares about. He is her world she'll do anything to protect him. 

This is a great story that keeps you wondering who to trust. The actions run throughout the story but doesn't overshadow the romance and love that's blooming between these two. Not only is it a fantastic story you got to know a bit about Royal and want his story. I'm so looking forward to that.
