Synopsis


When the woman you love is lost, how hard will you fight to get her back?


Following the birth of her daughter, Kadence Knight finds herself in a battle she never prepared for. With desperation and unhappiness threatening to overwhelm her, a sense of hopelessness pulls her away from the one thing she has always longed for: a family. 

As Nix watches his wife struggle with something he doesn't understand, he can't help but feel disconnected to his woman. The Kadence he once knew has drifted into the darkness. In her place is a shadow of the woman she once was, one who is fearful of the impossible...failing their daughter. 

This Valentine’s Day, Nix has one goal — to reclaim the woman who gave him everything. 


*Please note this is a novella and features the characters from the previous storyline. 
The events of Reclaimed take place after Incandescent and Affliction. Book one and two in the Knights Rebels MC. 
To get the full advantage of the story, and character development, I strongly suggest you read in order.






My Review

A Letter to River Savage

Dearest River,

Simply put thank you. Thank you for taking such a sensitive topic and making it okay. Okay to admit “Hey that was me!”  As I sit here and type this letter I’m honestly in tears, crying for a past I over came, crying at this amazing novella that has resonated so deeply into my soul and being.
 I’m solo (hehe) in awe how your ability to take our discussions and turn certain tid-bits from them into something beautiful. Something I’m not ashamed to admit I went thought. 



I can’t review Reclaimed I can only relate, respect and be completely in love with it. I thought I loved Nix and Kadence before, but holy fuck balls do I now.  No one in the Kights MC will ever top them for me now, not after witnessing them overcoming this! Together, as a team! 
Mr. and Mrs. Knight are truly an inspirartion!

Love truly does prevail. In fiction… and in life.

I cannot tell you how so fucking proud of you I am. Proud of you for caring enough to research this sensitive topic; always being compassionate, taking the time to ask the right questions, worrying about timelines, accuracy, feelings, and the emotions. And oh boy did you ever kill the emotions part. I often felt like I was looking into my own life, experiencing Kadence’s turmoil while wanting so much to reach in and grab and comfort the incredible man that is Nix, the man who stood by like a rock waiting for his love to return.

Even after having read it a few times now, I can’t not think back to certain scenes without getting completely emotional and teary. I’m in awe of your ability to take an embarrassing moment such as screaming in the bathroom and make me feel like that was okay, that it was just something that needed to be done, something than maybe others have done too.  



You truly have a gift and I am so honored that I got to take this journey with you, as a beta reader as an information giver and best of all as a friend! I love you hard River and will never forget what you have given me.

You are a master at your craft and a beautifully caring person who puts so much care into her writing. I just cannot express how incredibly well written, powerful and breathtakingly beautiful this story truly is.

With Reclaimed you’ve just nailed it! Like holy fucking wow! Looking at how Kadence and Nix have a love so strong they can conquer it all; even something that can be so detrimental to a marriage, having a family can be tough, things can change but thanks to you…you and your brilliant characters you showed us that things can also get better, people can come back, maybe even returning maybe a bit stronger. 

Lady you amazed me, never did I think that something I deemed as ugly, something I always wanted to never ever admit to as having lived through would now make me feel like saying...
 ‘Hell yeah! I had post partum and I survived and I’m a better for it!’
that maybe it was worth it. 

You did that! 

You made me feel it was a struggle worth embracing, worth admitting, worth talking about, maybe being something I’m actually proud of overcoming. River you did that for me with this incredibly realistic, taboo of a little story that I will connect with on a deeper level for the rest of my being. I am bursting with excitement for the world to experience Reclaimed.

Such a perfect title for all which it stands for…Reclaiming loveReclaiming self worthReclaiming happiness, Reclaiming familyReclaiming joy and finally Reclaiming yourself!



Oh and best of all Reclaiming SEX…. River Savage style.  Bust out the spare panties ladies of the book-loving world because you will need them!

I’m talking Nix, I’m talking dirty, I’m talking HEAVEN!

HOLY Shnookerdookies! Does this little novella pack a sexual punch! Nothing beats a dry spell like a ton of hotter than hades beyond scoville scale sex Savage style. Nix and Kadence are sure to leave you gaping like a jealous voyeur at the insane sex scenes River has penned this time around…. holy panty changes needed! Make up sex really is the best! And Nix and Kadence more than make of for the months they missed out!

In the end River all I can say again is thank you, for turning my dark and making it light!

Your friend always,


Gilly xox

Excerpt

“I don’t know what you want from me,” I whisper. Communication was never this hard. The distance growing further between us as each day passes makes me afraid that this is what we’ve become.
“I just want to bring you happiness, baby,” he sighs, but before I can tell him I don’t think he can, Harlow’s cries come through the monitor. I move off the bed to go to her, knowing she will need to be fed. 
“You walk out of this room, Kadence, you walk out on me.” His cold tone stops me from moving any further. It’s the same tone he used in the bathroom. “Leave her,” he commands, but the thought of continuing this conversation, where we tear each other down, has me fighting him.
“Nix, I have to check on her.” I continue to the door.
“Don’t you dare leave this fuckin’ room. I’m important too. I’m your fuckin’ husband. Do you hear me? We are important.” His hand sweeps across his nightstand, causing one big crash that sends everything tumbling to the floor. I’m frozen in place, my hand resting on the door handle. The room is silent. The shock of what has gone on tonight so raw I don’t think either of us knows how to process it.
“I don’t know what you want from me,” I repeat, closing my eyes when Harlow’s cries grow louder, sending my anxiety rising. Doesn’t he know he’s only making it worse?
“Jesus, I don’t know. Give me a look, smile at me…fuckin’ touch me. Give me a connection that says we’re on the same fuckin’ side. I can’t continue to stay in this place we are in. I’m drowning here, Kadence. We both are, and I just don’t know if I can keep treading water for both of us. You have to help me, baby. You have to want us to survive.” He falls to the bed, his head dropping to his hands. Seeing him like this, in this state makes me realize that our situation is bigger than me, than him. It’s bigger than either one of us realize.
“That’s not fair.” I release the handle and turn, collapsing against the wall. The wind knocks out of me as his words resonate within me. We are drowning and I have to stop fighting. At this realization, my knees become weak. Standing becomes too hard. I slide down the wall, dropping my ass to the carpet.
“Life isn’t fair, Kadence. I wish it was, but it just isn’t. Look where we both have come from; look where life has taken us. We won’t survive if you won’t talk to me, Kadence. Talk to someone.” He stands to come to me, but having him in my space only makes things worse.
“Please don’t.” I draw in a breath, defeated. His frustration and concerns only prove what a bad mother I’ve been, what a bad wife I’ve become.
 “Don’t what, Kadence?  Don’t make me walk away. I want my wife back. I don’t know what’s happened, but I don’t like who you’ve become.” His voice is pained, as broken as my soul feels. His confession doesn’t surprise me, but it still burns. I know I don’t like who I’ve become. How do I expect Nix to like me?
“You don’t think I ask myself that question every day? That I don’t look at myself and ask what is wrong with me? I don’t know who I’ve become, Nix. All I know is I should. I should know who I am.” My head thuds against the wall in defeat. I can’t keep going on like this. I can hear Harlow’s cries quietening, as she resettles herself, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting out of this room.
“I know who you are, Kadence. You’re the woman I love. The most amazin’ mother to our daughter, our son.” Saying Z is my son pulls at me harder. The fact that he, too, is affected by what is happening hurts even more. Nix walks over and squats to my level, careful not to get into my space, but close enough for me to reach out and touch him if I wanted to.
“Why don’t I know that? I should know that Nix.”
“You don’t have to know. I know, the kids know and that’s enough.”
“It’s not enough for me.” My hand itches to touch him, to feel his hardness under my fingers, but sitting broken on the floor of our bedroom, I know I can’t. I can’t touch the man who means everything to me and I hate myself for it.
“When did you stop trustin’ yourself?” 
“I don’t know. When did I stop being myself?” I counter, and my admission halts him for a moment. He crawls forward, coming closer into my space. His warmth, his calming presence wraps itself all over me.
“The first step is askin’ for help, baby. Let me help you. You don’t have to be alone. Let me learn to breathe the ugliness you see. Let me share the darkness, Kadence. Just don’t push me away.” His pleading pulls at me, pulls at the hatred that has settled inside.
“I’m not doing good, Nix,” I say, looking up and giving him what he needs. What I need. “Somewhere along the way, I woke completely lost and overwhelmed. And every day, it gets harder and harder to deal.” A sob tears from deep within me, and walls I’ve been hiding behind crumble down. 

“I know, baby.” He pulls me into the hardness of his chest. “We’re gonna be okay,” he promises, and everything in me wants to believe him. Everything in me wants to trust he has me. That he has us. But the truth is, I’ve drowned in so much self-doubt and uneasiness, that trust seems so far away.
