American Savages by J. J. McAvoy

Published March 19, 2015 by bookbesties

I have been an avid fan of all things Liam and Melody since Ruthless people and from chapter one was hooked. The Untouchables leaves off at the biggest WFT moment a book can have, but that’s not to say it’s a cliff hanger, it’s just a WFT…

A.S picks up a few months after T.U leaves off and we only get a one sided story for the first few chapters which had me sweating bullets but that’s a different story! Mel and Liam are facing new threats, bigger threats and again trust issues. I love Mel and Liam each individually and for me Ruthless people was Liam’s book(meaning I liked him more) and The Untouchables was Melody’s book, well American Savages was both their book because if you thought you knew them from the previous two you were wrong! Seeing both of them grow and become an actual unit and regardless of the ending this was all I wanted out of the series and it happened, this is not a spoiler.

This book, like all the others are told in multiple POV’s and sometimes it was annoying because I didn’t want to know or care what was happening with the other back up’s or side characters but they did move the story along however bothersome I thought they were I see why they were included.

Who I did love and they could have totally stolen the show was Declan and Coralline! If the book was just about them and Mel and Liam I would be a happy camper! The way they went from extras to supporting characters were amazing and when I finished AS and saw that I had THEIR story on my kindle awwww

To me, AS was a great ending, it had me on the edge of my seat for a while there and I thought I was going to have to boycott JJ for a minute, then I was pulled back reminded (by her) that this was just a book! But she writes in such a way that you forget and could very well have watched a T.V series and it’s the series finale. All in all I thought most things got warped up nice and neat and I wouldn’t mind if JJ revised this world in a few years and see what the Callahan’s are up to!

4 out of 5 stars!
