My Rating 5 Heartfelt Stars!
What a beautiful talented storyteller Jordan Marie is. I loved Crusher and grew to understand and respect Dani while reading their powerful journey. The story of Crusher and Dani is one we’ve all been waiting for since the very beginning. This story hits you in the gut, then aims for your heart and when you finish your heart is overly filled with so many emotions that Jordan had you endure while reading. Bravo, Great Job woman!!
Claiming Crusher is a beautiful story of overcoming life’s challenges and pushing forward and being strong for those you love when they need you most. Loving those who deem themselves unworthy of being loved. It’s also a story of learning to love and just how powerful real love can be and is.
I highly recommend this book and the complete Savage MC series. They don’t disappoint….EVER!!

* Reviewer for Hellmouth’s Bookblog & Reviews*
This is Dani and Crusher's story. We met Dani, Nicole's troubled best friend, in Breaking Dragon, where a series of bad decisions on Dani's part put Nicole in danger and wound up getting her hurt. Dani wasn't that likable a character in BD. In fact, within Jordan Marie's fanbase, she was a controversial one - she was either loved or she was hated. This book also overlaps with the events in Loving Nicole but is told entirely from the perspective of Crusher and Dani.
"There are secrets in those beautiful brown eyes. Secrets that have broken her."
In this book we learn about Dani and her history, which is the driving force behind her bad behavior and poor decision-making. Hers is not a pretty story. This woman has suffered greatly, horrifically and terrifyingly at the hands of her ex. She sees herself as weak and pathetic, and reinvents herself into the "character" of Dani, the woman she wants to be. Crusher, or Zander as Dani calls him, sees right through her tough facade, seeing more of her pain than even her best friend does. Crusher has his own demons. His youth is littered with his "failures" as he refers to them, but were actually horrible tragedies that were way beyond his youthful control.
"Dani looks up and our eyes lock. Hers are haunted and I want to be the man that takes the ghosts away."
As their fragile relationship grows, Dani does the damnedest thing. She begins to trust Crusher. She begins to crave him and the safety she has only ever felt in his arms. He sees her, he sees the woman behind the attitude and the "Ice Queen" persona. He sees her pain, he sees her fear, and he also sees her heart. He may not fully understand what is behind the fear in her haunted eyes, but he will not let it deter him. So exercising a level of control he did not know he had, with extreme patience and very tentatively, Crusher works his way into Dani's life and heart. He knows what he wants, but being a relationship novice himself, he is unsure how to proceed. He sees their future within his grasp, though, and nothing and no one will stop him from claiming Dani as his.
"I need you Hellcat. I need you more than any man has ever needed a woman in his life."
As Dani begins to relax and let Crusher in, she opens up to him about her past gradually. With each piece of her history he learns, however, his rage builds. Being the alpha male biker that he is, there is no other option for him but to seek retaliation against the man who hurt his woman. But in doing so, he unwittingly puts everyone - Dani, Nicole, his brothers - in harms way. He did not fully understand the man with which he was dealing, and when Dani finds out what Crusher is up to, she does the only thing she can to protect those she loves: she runs.
"If he gets his hands on me again, I won't survive."
The events that unfold in this book are the flip side of the coin to what we saw in Loving Nicole. This book delves more deeply into what happened the day of Nicole and Dragon's wedding and the days that follow told from Crusher and Dani's perspective. Jordan did an amazing job capturing Dani's terror as well as her strength. She also fully fleshed out Crusher's behavior during this time, and you couldn't help but be consumed with his panic, rage and anger.
"If she dies, I won't mourn her. Hell no. I'll make sure I join her. It's just that ... simple."
This book was positively gripping. Jordan Marie took her readers on one hell of a ride through the minefield of both Dani and Crusher's pasts. The bright spot was the development of their relationship. It was beautiful and something that neither had ever experienced before. In this book, we saw how Dani's decisions impacted not only herself, but also Nicole and the Savage Brothers MC. We also got a look back into Dani's history, and it's not pretty. There is a reason she is the way she is, and it's disturbing, upsetting and heartbreaking. Once you read her story, you'll be able to look past her tough girl shell and see her for what she is - a damaged, scared woman that is hell bent on protecting herself and those she loves.
"This is it, Hellcat. This is where we're supposed to be."
This was an incredible journey. Dani held so much pain, but it was her strength that surprised me the most. Jordan Marie continues to surpass my expectations with each book, always delivering an incredible story to her readers. She started this series very strongly, with an amazing debut, and incredibly each addition to the series has been better than the last. Richly developed, full of detail and emotion, this author's writing abilities leave the reader breathless, emotional and anxiously awaiting the next book. Without any hesitation or forethought, Jordan Marie is an auto buy author for me. Well done, Jordan, well done!
I know I am in the minority here, but I love Dani. I was so happy to see she was getting her story told. I think Dani is a survivor and the disgusting actions against her messed with her head. How could it not?! Of course she would act out, drink, drug herself...many of the things she is not liked for. She made it through the other side and, for that, she is one of my favorite characters.
Crusher grew on me. I didn't really like him in the other books. He loved his woman hard. Completely. His dirty-talkin' mouth...whoa! Loved it!! Together they were smoking hot! I was surprised where the ending went but I loved that these two strong people made a life for themselves.
After reading the excerpt at the end of Claiming Crusher, I so cannot wait for Bull's book!! Bull is one of my favorite characters!!
Ok, so my four star rating: I love MC books and this series is one of my favorites. It is a total 5 star book!! BUT, I cannot overlook the grammatical errors. There are way too many. I know, I am in the minority about this but with a fantastic story, there should also be focus on proper grammar and punctuation.
