I vow. I crave. I give in.
I used to be a nice, normal girl. I had dreams. Good, happy dreams of a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and a fairytale love that lasts forever. Nobody ever warned me that sometimes, the prince dies three weeks before the wedding.
Like any addict, I swear this time is the last….
Now, I go through my days, a shadow of my former self. I pretend I’m okay, and the people in my life pretend to believe me. But, sometimes, when I can no longer stand the craving, I roam an underground sex club looking for my next hit. It’s dirty and wrong, but I can’t stop, and my only line of defense between them and me, are the rules I’ve designed to keep me safe. Men always abide by my rules. Until I meet him.
And, like any addict, I’m wrong.
I don’t question the instincts that tell me to run. One look at him, standing there, power radiating off him in waves, tells me all I need to know. He will make me crave those happy dreams I’ve left behind. And that is not an option.
This book is dark, sexy and full of eroticism.
Crave is darkly intense, Micheal’s dominance creeps into your soul off the pages and you find yourself as on edge as Layla is.
I found myself reading faster, swept away in the intensity of the moments when Micheal showed his dominance over Layla.
I think its beautiful how such dominance pulled Layla out of the dark soulless destructive place she found herself in, how she goes from existing day to day to learning how to live again and to see light in the world after such a heartbreaking tragedy she experienced. Michael forces Layla to reconnect with herself with her family and with him.
I felt sorry for Layla, to lose her fiancée the way she did was awful, and I really understand the way she didn’t want to reconnect with the world, how it was much easier to shut down and punish herself.
I absolutely loved this character coupling they worked on such a believable level that carried the story and plot to brilliant heights.
Crave is about finding a way to live again after a tragedy, to regain strength, to not forget about the love you lost, but to learn how to live with their love in your heart and to make room for new love.
a fantastic 5 star read for me, no doubt.
