Wicked Review: Savor by Kate Evangelista

Published: September 2015
Publisher: Spark Books
Series: Vicious Feast #1
Acquired: Paperback

 Mature and explicit content. Not recommended for readers below 18-years-old. Yup, you've got to be that old to read my story. Consider yourself warned.

I’m Dakota Collins, a tough talking, eye patch wearing, workaholic photography student. Why am I important? Well, maybe because I get to spend an entire month with Vicious, only the sickest indie rock band out there.

You see, I needed a subject for my Spring Showcase introspective in order to graduate. During a chance encounter at a club I’d been sent to cover for the Daily Gossip, our ironically named college paper, the features writer I usually teamed up with introduced me to the band—by accident, I might add. It involved a run in with a scary, bald bodyguard. Anyway, long story short, I signed a contract to take pictures of Vicious.

I should have known their handsome, yet way too serious for his own good bassist, Luka Visraya, wouldn't be able to keep his hands to himself. He’s gorgeous and all, but the way he smiles spells trouble with a capital L. I’m in for a long month with him around.

Crazy shit happens and then some. So, if you want the skinny on Vicious and the events revolving around my stay at Lunar Manor, read my story.

Again, refer to the warning above.

Yup, my emotions. I don't even know where it went. I have a strong feeling the lovely Kate Evangelista has it. She probably had it while she was writing Book 2 of this series. I don't know. Or maybe it was with Luka Visraya the whole time. Normally, I would be angry. But not today. To hell with my emotions. I don't want them! (Kidding!) 

We have Dakota Collins who is a photographer. She's proud of her work and her skills even if the whole world doesn't know her yet. She just hasn't found the right subject for her project until she stumbles inside Sacrifice where the hot indie rock band, Vicious, is playing.

I wish that Vicious was a real band. I mean, the way Kate Evangelista wrote how Vicious is as a band, I had a hard time picturing in my head how the band sounded like. It was unique. Vicious has four members: Phoenix, the vocalist, Dray, the drummer, Demitiri, the guitarist, and Luka, the hottest bassist I have ever read in my entire life. Okay that was way out of hand.

I mean, blonde hair, blue eyes, with a piercing on his brow, and that sexy stare. He's a walking sex god basically. You get the picture.

Things fall into place when the band agrees to be Dakota's subject for her project. In return, she has to live with the band in the mysterious Lunar Manor. Lunar Manor is where the band lives, records their music, and makes their music. It belongs to Luka's family. The way it was written on the book was, well, quite ludicrous really. Dakota had her own quarter. Not a room. A FREAKING QUARTER.

Said quarter is a few steps away from said hot bassist.

As Dakota goes along with her project, saving Luka as the last, she can't help but be drawn to the bassist. She enjoyed her time at the manor. The days trickled into weeks and she had befriended the members of the band. She has gotten to know them better than any of their fans. She knew their strengths and weaknesses. Or at least, that's how Kate Evangelista wants me to think because I know there are some things about the characters that isn't completely out there yet. Hence, book 2.

It's beautiful, enchanting, sexy as hell, mysterious, and perfect. I have never read something like this in my life. You have to read this. (When you fall in love with Luka Visraya, which of course you would, hit me up on Twitter! Or comment below. You know where to find me.)

When Kate Evangelista was told she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing: entered medical school. After realizing she wasn't going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department and never looked back. Today, she is a graduate of De La Salle University - Manila with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature. She taught high school English for three years and was an essay consultant for two. Currently she writes full-time and is based in the Philippines.
