Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



I love, love, love when a series gets better and Julia Wolf far surpassed my expectations on this book!!

Asher and Bex were tortured and angsty and so, so broken…it is truly destiny that they would wind up together or would ultimately destroy one another. There was no in between. Their story is one that once you pick it up you won’t be able to put it back down, so buckle in and get ready for an emotional ride.

Through the Ashes wasn’t anything like I was expecting. All the twists and ups and downs of this story were heartbreaking. Bex and Asher were both broken souls who needed someone to care about them, but also so lost they didn’t know what they were searching for.

I don’t want to say too much because reading their truths at the exact right time is what made the story so enjoyable.

While this book is full of emotions, it is also steamy hot. This is a time in your life when discovering your tastes and preferences really come out with the right partner. These two use their emotional outlets for finding out what their boundaries are and YUM! Ash and Bex are just yummy. I’m going to leave it at that.

While this is book two in the Savage Crew series, it can be read as a complete standalone. Bex and Asher’s story is completely their own.


I’ve never fit in, but I have no desire to stand out either. I was perfectly fine hanging in the shadows, but my choice to remain anonymous is taken from me.

I’m thrust into the spotlight. His spotlight.

Asher Beck is a golden god at Savage River High. Football star, whip-smart, and popular, we don’t belong in the same hemisphere, let alone circle. But underneath that perfection is a darkness he only reveals to me.

I have no idea what I did to capture Asher’s attention, but he is relentless in his pursuit. The problem is, I can’t tell if he’s trying to break me or own me…and I don’t know which I want more.

Broken boy meets broken girl.

Author’s Note: Through the Ashes is a high school bully romance with mature themes and dubious situations some readers may find offensive. If heroes who are golden on the outside but dark as night on the inside aren’t your thing, this book isn’t for you!
