    Without interruption in the storyline, Meredith Dalton’s investigation into The Raven Room and murdered women continues with Julian Reeve as the primary suspect. While trying to launch her career in journalism and attempting to protect Julian, Meredith is secretly getting information any way she can but when she prods too far, certain mysterious figures are ready to quiet her.

    Recovering from the loss of a loved one, Julian’s life is turned on its axis. A long time friend offers him a bit of solace but Julian realizes things are spinning too far out of control. As he regains perspective, he knows what needs to be done in order to keep attention from his extracurricular activities.

    Many plot points are at play with some answers revealed but mostly more questions are posed as bits of information are synthesized to the next level. With the focus on Julian and Meredith, secondary characters continue to gain importance and knowing who to trust is a constant battle since each has their own self-interest at stake. As the cadence begins to swirl a little over halfway into the story, alliances start shifting until the very end reaches a boiling point.

    While I gained some clarity into these characters due to added dimension, Julian’s character still remains a mystery overall. His motivation to protect himself and the Raven Room is clear but there is much more to learn about his past and present connections. With Meredith, she remains a bit of a thorn in my side. I do like her tenacity but still question her judgment and cannot envision her to have a lasting relationship with Julian other than friendship.

    In addition to greed and secrets, eroticism is very present as these characters must feed their desires. I would have liked a little more regarding Julian but was certainly satisfied with the variety and dirtiness.

    the author continues to weave an intriguing web of deceit, mystery and allure. There are many details in this series and reading in close succession is recommended. Hopefully, the wait for the final book isn’t a long one. This series would appeal to those enjoy crime mystery in an erotic setting,

    OMG

    THIS SERIES IS INTENSE, DARK, AND ODDLY SATISFYING

    *CAUTION ~ beware of the content in this book. It’s dark. And has some disturbing stuff in it, but I think it was successfully written in a way to show the effects of each dark situation***

    What isn’t done really well is the description of this book on GR. It’s not just about it Meredith, but it’s about every single one of the characters. Probably rewrite the description for it be an accurate description??

    I think what makes this series is the plot. The second book just added so much to this story and characters. I am just floored with the progress of this devastating story of twisted love, pain, desire. Amazing I think.

    I want to say so much about certain details of the book but I CANT because then I would be spoiling it for you! Nope I ain’t gonna do it...

    But I will say, I am truly excited to read the last book in the series. Great work

    4.5 star rating

    BOOM!! THIS is how you do erotic suspense/thriller!

    To sum it up in one word: OUTSTANDING! Totally worth a two year wait. Absolutely, positively one of my favorite series out there. I know I say this often but The Raven Room Trilogy would make an amazing TV show. Hands down, one of THE best 'whodunnit' plots I've read. This author's writing makes you eat up pages as if you life depends on it. I think it took me 4 hours to finish this because I simply couldn't stop. Absolutely FLAWLESS from start

BRAVO, Ana Medeiros! BRAVO!

    P.S. This is a trilogy and all of the books must be read in order for the story to make sense.

    This second part picks up exactly where it left off and we are in the midst of an on going murder investigation. The death of a woman is the center of the web which will tangle all the players in this book. No one is Untouched or "Clean."

    We have Julian who is the person held by the police with them wanting him to be the answer... Then there is a woman, Meredith who has a "sexual friendship" with Julian. She is Julian's alibi and also has her own ties with the head police investigator. Topping all of this off, it seems the victim was a twin, meaning which woman was involved with whom..

    This entry goes off from there. We are reminded of what Meredith wanted from Julian; access to The Raven Room, for her own career goals. She has concern for Julian, yet she still has the drive to forward her career with an intense revealing article about mysterious, private Sex Club.

    But what Meredith got was more than she expected.

    Julian's ties to the Raven Room are having more impact to his personal and professional life then ever before. He has become embroiled with the investigation, looking out for a number of people who are in danger and trying to hold onto the separation of his critical professional life and his need for The Raven Room.

    This entry lays out more pieces to draw the reader into this Web...There are a lot of moving parts and can be challenging at times. We have many plot points/ villains and making sure you have the overview is critical.

    This gives you much and when The Raven Room #3 is released.. I know the tangled web will be shown... who deceived, who loved and who was in charge of The Raven Room.

    This is the second novel in The Raven Room trilogy and I have been eagerly anticipating it since I finished reading the first book two years ago. I admit I have bugged Ana Medeiros a time or two about when the second book would be out, so when she finally announced it was done I was GIDDY.

    The second book in this trilogy did NOT disappoint. I’m not sure it’s possible but it’s even sexier and more mysterious than the first and I loved being able to delve even deeper into the lives of Julian and Me

    This is the second novel in The Raven Room trilogy and I have been eagerly anticipating it since I finished reading the first book two years ago. I admit I have bugged Ana Medeiros a time or two about when the second book would be out, so when she finally announced it was done I was GIDDY.

    The second book in this trilogy did NOT disappoint. I’m not sure it’s possible but it’s even sexier and more mysterious than the first and I loved being able to delve even deeper into the lives of Julian and Meredith. While the first book seemed to focus more on Julian, this second novel gave us a better look into Meredith and her viewpoint is incredibly enticing.

    I could not put this book down. All the lives within this novel are so complicated and tied up together and I had to know how they would all come together. The sex and the intrigue are heightened to a point where you just HAVE to know what’s coming around the next bend. It’s such an exciting book…

    Except. Then you get to the end.

    And there’s a cliffhanger.

    Ana Medeiros WHAT are you doing to me?

    All I have to say is that I better not have to wait 2 more years to find out how it ends.

    Until then… go out and read the first two novels of The Raven Room trilogy. Just keep in mind, they’re not for the faint of heart.

    The Raven Room was the depraved playground of Chicago's rich and powerful elites. As journalist Meredith Dalton's investigation of a murder connected to the club went deeper, she found out first hand that nothing and no one could be trusted. And her involvement with her lover Julian Reeve could let to a complicated and dangerous entanglement.

    I used to like both Meredith and Julian enough. Meredith was still the driven woman that she was, but Julian turned into something different than what I expect his character to be.

    Throughout the book, I had problem connecting with the characters and the storyline. It's been two years since I read book 1, so it's one of the contributing factor. This type of story needs a good continuity or best told in a standalone book. Aside from that, there were a lot of characters and things happening with some that seemed out of nowhere. At times I find it hard to keep up due to lack of focus in the story and took me almost to the end to finally get in the groove.

    Savage Bonds is book two of The Raven Room trilogy. This book would appeal to readers who like mystery/suspense with a side of kink.

    is the second book in

    trilogy and I have a lot to say about it. I found Meredith to be an interesting character in the first book. She's a journalist major and seems ambitious. She's trying to write the story thats going to make her career without actually having THE job. She comes from an affluent family as her father is a judge and stepmother is a detective. Her character kind of bored me in book two though it did pick up a bit towards the end. Meredith was the perfect character for the book to be centered on. She's basically a millennial who is trying to make it while indulging in an open relationship that will help her with her story. Sounds great right? The author's biggest mistake was shoving all these characters down our throats. We have Pam, Steven, Pete, Grace, Tatiana, Sofia, Vincent, Colton, Isaac, and the list goes on. I was exhausted trying to keep up with it all. Every character also seems to be attracted to one another. Meredith seems to get lost in all these characters.

    Then, we have the mysterious character of Julian who had so much potential and can still shine in book three. Julian comes from a rough background. He's from the foster system and was taken in by a family with two daughters.

    We then see bits of his past and it's just hard to connect with him because you never know what you're getting. Again, too much is going on with his character. Simplicity is key. There is much more but I can't say without spoiling the book. I didn't find myself caring for the other characters. Pete's blah and Grace is okay. We don't know much about Meredith's father. The plot involving Sofia and Tatiana was one I saw coming a mile away. Also, it annoys me that Meredith's super secret article isn't much of a secret at all.

    I am tired just from typing all this out. I can say that the book does pick up towards the end and leaves you at the edge of your seat. Hopefully all these loose threads can be tied up soon.
