Book Description

"Romance, and athletes in a love triangle gone wrong, what more could a girl want?"

"It was captivating... an emotional romance."

"I read it straight through, as once I started it, I couldn't put it down!"

Casey Cassidy gets what she wants.

Determined to get over Jason and find a man that wants a family, she moves to Breckenridge, Colorado.

Landing a job skiing every day, Casey finds Blaine Johnson - a wish come true. A hunky surfer turned ski instructor, he checks off every requirement on her list.

Except for the one she forgot to add.

Blaine has a secret. A secret so big it keeps intimacy smoldering, when Casey needs fire. No matter how hard she tries, the embers won’t ignite. Can she live without passion to get the family she craves?

When Jason comes to town, Casey questions everything she wished for. Their consuming love threatens to explode and ruin her dream. Will she have to choose between a family and the love of her life?

A new adult romance set with athletes in a ski town.

2.0 out of 5 stars I really did try to like it June 3, 2014
By tanya w
Format:Kindle Edition
I hate giving bad reviews, but I was asked for an honest review in exchange for a ARC copy.

I usually can read a book in a day or two, finding time to sneak chapters when I can. But this book took me all of two weeks to read. I just couldn't get into it. It was so back and forth. Things the writer could of expanded on she didn't. Things that didn't need all the extra detail had it. So on.

The one thing that bothered me (trying to explain this without spoilers here) was when Blaine realized something about himself and instead of the writer expanding on it, it was more in my opinion a shoulder shrug and "oh ok that makes sense moving on......"

The writer does have a great sense of humor. There were parts of the book I did laugh out loud. The Ski lesson with the kids was funny!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read May 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review as part of LibraryThing’s Members Giveaway program. Brief plot spoilers may follow.*

I normally don’t care for the love triangle situation, but this one intrigued me because both Jason & Blaine happened to be good guys; it wasn’t the typical situation where one of them was a bad person or treating Casey wrong. Casey as a heroine was okay. She wasn’t without her faults; she was selfish and she thought a bit too much with her lady parts and not enough with her mind. She was admittedly both things though and at least had the grace to feel guilty about it, so that redeemed her a bit. Even though she slipped a few times throughout the book, I was able to see her grow as a result of the different situations she found herself in. Blaine seemed a bit too perfect, so I knew whatever his secret ended up being was going to be a big one, and boy was it. As the book progressed, I began to suspect how his portion of the story was going to end, so it bugged me a little when I ended up being right. But instead of having it simply be a case of denial, Blaine’s portion of the story ended up being more real and complex, which partially exposed the desire that many of us have and the dangers of falling in love with a projected/desired image without looking at the person for what they truly are. I felt badly for Jason for some of the book because of how much Casey often thought with her lady parts and turned to him when she was in pain, only to cut tail and leave immediately afterward. I say some because despite him knowing exactly why Casey felt they couldn’t be together, he didn’t give her that honesty back in detailing why he didn’t want a family or why he chose not to celebrate certain holidays.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy and enjoyable June 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I’m usually not one for these sorts of romances, but really it wasn’t too bad. In fact I found myself enjoying it most of the time. It wasn’t too sappy and at least there wasn’t a dastardly villain in the mix, just people being people.

Crave is focused on Casey and Jason, and a few other characters. Obviously this is a love story with mild erotic scenes. Casey has found herself cheated on one again by some new boyfriend, and who’s there to pick up the pieces when she’s cheated on? Jason. He is also there throughout the story for her, as she dates yet another ‘perfect’ guy, who turns out to not be perfect. How long will he be there for her before she realizes that she needs him? Before she realizes that kids are not entirely important.

I found myself really disliking the main character a lot, Casey was such a conceited bitch to everyone. When things didn’t go her way she’d start crying or texting someone to fix it for her. In the end everything goes her way, because she’s pretty and popular. Also there was a slight tendency to over describe things that weren’t necessary to the story.

I liked that all of the characters were all really well thought out, and really realistic. If I didn’t know any better I’d think they were real people that the author knows in real life.

Review for Ramblings From This Chick. ramblingsfromthischick.blogspot.com

I will admit that the cover for Crave is what originally drew me in. I love it, and I knew that I wanted to read this one without ever having read the blurb. But honestly once I read the blurb, it was a done deal for me. I am so glad that I read this book, and I really ended up enjoying. Casey and Jason's story was one that will stick with me and was a lot of fun to read. This book is worth the read for Jason alone. He was amazing.

Casey Cassidy leaves Vermont to head to Colorado after breaking up with the love of her life Jason. Jason is the perfect guy for Casey and they have a great relationship, except she wants a family and he doesn't. Casey tries to get over Jason and ends up getting a job as a ski instructor in Colorado. She meets Blaine through some friends of hers and develops feelings for him right away. Blaine is a former surfer turned skier and he helps Casey get better. While Casey and Blaine have an easy relationship and get along well, their relationship is missing the passion that she shared with Jason. Blaine is also keeping a secret from Casey and she begins to wonder if his desire for a family with her is enough after having what she did with Jason. When Jason suddenly appears in Colorado, Casey begins to wonder what she should do with her life. Can she give up Jason for a family, or will she be willing to sacrifice her desire to have kids in order to have the love of her life and the relationship she needs?

I loved Jason. He was sexy and sweet, and just a genuinely good guy. This is one of those book boyfriends that you want to be real so bad because he is absolutely perfect. He There is not a single thing bad about him, and I loved the way that he treated Casey.
