Publisher's Summary

Emersyn Sharpe doesn’t belong in our world.

In fact, the very last place she should be is with us. But someone is hurting her. We’ve all seen it. We tried to ignore the warning signs. We tried to trust the people around her. We tried to believe in her world.

Too late.

When she nearly died in front of us, we had to act. We took her. She doesn’t belong in our world, but I’ll be damned if someone lays a finger on her under my watch. I’ll kill them first.

Now that she’s here…I don’t know if I can let her leave. I’m Jasper Horan, anyone who tries to take her will have to go through me and my boys. You’ve been warned.

Savage Vandal is a full-length mature college/new-adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. This is a reverse-harem novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This is book one in the series.

AWESOME!

I loved the book, but I believe I liked the audible version even better! It does leave you on a cliffhanger though and dying for the next one.

Fantastic duet multi narration & Amazing Story

6/5⭐ Extra Star Read Fantastic, addicting new series. I had very high expectations for this book going in. Heather Long plus this genre of book is a dream come true for me. I really love Heather Long's writing especially The Untouchables series. And she did such a fantastic job with the story it has exceeded my already high expectations.

Heather Long has such a distinctive way of storytelling and creating characters. I honestly can't put my finger on it but she sucks you into a story and makes you completely lost inside of it. She writes in a way where everything is interesting. She writes such a variety of characters with their own personality and traits that are very distinctive. I cannot pick a fav MCs...okay maybe Jasper but like it was hard to just name one.

Emerson is such a strong FMC. She's has an abusive past/start of the story and has such inner strength. She fought her way through the situations the best she could had plans, and was/is so discipline in her craft. And when she is "Kidnapped" she shows strength throughout the situation as well. No very realistic way.

I love that she is strong yet has has vulnerabilities. I love that she has been abused but she has a fighting spirit. That dichotomy with this character. She shows a lot of inner and outer strength in these situations. There are a lot of ways to be strong and there are a lot of ways in which we need to lean on others. I love when a book portrays stories and characters in complex situations with complex emotions.

This is a great force proximity story I love the mystery of why the savage vandals have taken Emerson. It's such a contradiction and it's a contradiction for Emerson, they're treating her well, they like her, they're obviously very angry with her abuser, and they are protective.

But they won't let her go, she's still a captive and she has to come to terms with that. So is it like Stockholm syndrome or are these good people? Or like bad good people? What are their motivations? Emerson is definitely wondering that. It's so well-written with some things i didnt coming especially with one of the characters.

I am so drawn into this world and I can't wait to no more. There's so much to unpack still I can't wait for it, yet this was such a satisfying read. There's a bit of a Cliffy it just leaves you wanting more. Heather doesn't keep you waiting long between books either.

I really love this book and I read it from start to finish, I was so sucked in. I love this story and I love this genre from Heather Long. This is my new series addiction & anticipation read. I'm so excited for the rest of the books in this eight book planned series.

So many questions!

I really don't understand why they took Emerson. No real answers we given and I felt the story line just kept repeating itself.

I don't normally...

... write a review for the 1st book in a series. I typically review the entire thing once I've finished the final book, but I'm inspired enough to write one here.

I've been let down quite a bit with promising audiobooks on Audible lately, so much that I've started checking in to other subscription services. So I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this story. The narrators really carry the story, particularly Brooke Daniels (who also narrates one my Top 5 Must Reads.

However, one of the male narrators is a miscast. He has an older, WASP-y, straight-laced inflection that really doesn't do well with most of these characters. In fact, I've commented on his work before, but didn't notice his name before reading this.

Hope this review helps someone considering it. On to book 2!

Emersyn Sharpe doesn’t belong in our world...

From her first moment on the page Emersyn Sharpe stole my heart with her unrelenting strength. No one in her company saw the power that she wielded when she was on the stage, and they all tried to take pieces of her. She was not going to let that happen... she only had to make it a few more months and she could out from under the thumb of her tormentor.

Her whole life is turned upside down when she wakes upon a bed that is not her own, with a strange man there watching over her. Before long there are multiple men the room with her, all looking at her and seeing the scars that she has worked so hard to keep hidden.

Jasper, the man from the show that fixed her doorknob and gave her the first sense of privacy that she has known for years...

Vaghn, helped her get away from Eric when he was going after her yet again just because he could...

Kestrel, her driver, and the only semblance of a friend that she has had while being in this hell town...

Along with the comes Doc, Rome, Liam, and Freddie... Emersyn doesn't know why she is here with all these men but as the days turn to weeks, she realizes that there is no way out. These men want her here but not for ransom and before she realizes it, she is starting to care about her captors. The way that Vaghn always seems to know what she needs to hear, and while Jasper is gruff, he does things for her that will make her more comfortable.

Months of being held in this place with these men have Emersyn craving an escape but if she can escape where is she going to go? Sometimes the evil you don't know is better than the evil you do because being kidnapped might take away some freedoms but if her tormentor were to find her there is no telling what is in store for her...

On to narration, because WOW it was beyond anything I was expecting. Brooke Daniels as Emersyn was entirely perfect. Her voice was fragile at times and then it was raspy with an edge you could really feel for the character she was portraying. This was my first narration by her, same with Toby Scott he did incredible with the different characters he was portraying, and I am really hoping they will be in the second book. Now, Noel Harrison... because delicious is the only word coming to mind. This was not my first narration by him it was my second and let me introduce you to his narrations because you haven't heard a growl done properly until you have heard him do it. Needless to say, I fully suggest the audio for this book.

If you are note one for cliffhangers than I suggest you have book two on hand because you are going to want to dive right into it after finishing this book, I know I do. Heather Long gives you a perfect taste into the world of The Vandals and you are so not ready for all that is Emersyn, Vaughn, Jasper and Kestrel.

Amazing

Emerson has had an abusive past and and even now her dance partner torments her. When she’s attacked she is protected by strangers but when she wakes up in a strange place they have kidnapped her to protect her but they won’t tell her why. Really enjoyed this and the narrators are perfect.

Great start to the series

This is the first series from Heather that I’ve read. It’s been on my list for awhile, just waiting until I could binge a few of the books.

Savage Vandal is book 1 in the 82 Street Vandals series. A reverse harem dark romance series.

Emersyn is a dancer and lead performer, but there is more to her the meets the eye. On one of her last shows to save her, we took her. Hawk, Kestrel, Falcon and the rest of the Vandals.

Emersyn is sassy and headstrong. She’s lived a life that moulded her to be resilient and strong. The Vandals think they’re protecting her. She’s convinced they’ve kidnapped her for ransom. They all have very different personas but have appear to have a strong bond.

This was a great start to the series. Very much a slow burn. The plot is so thick with mystery and danger, while breadcrumbs are dropped throughout there are still very little answers. It’s so entertaining and gripping, making you need to keep reading.

The cliffhanger will definitely have to needing to dive into book 2, Vicious Rebel.
