Ben is a supermodel that every woman fantasizes about but he only has eyes for Emmy, his sweet, curvy Southern Belle. Problem is that at the end of Working It, Ben and Emmy are going to piece back together their broken relationship. I don't want to ruin Working It but the curveball from that book has ramifications seen through 3/4 of Craving Him. I would argue that you need to read Working It first.
Emmy and Ben run through the gamut of relationship problems in this book and it is fantastic to see Ben willing to fight for what he wants and needs….Emmy. Emmy has a hard time dealing with how different their lifestyles are and is not sure she can handle all the baggage that comes with Ben. She opens herself time and time again but ends up being hurt.
Without her best friend and roommate, Ellie, Emmy never would have survived Craving It. Quite honestly, Ellie was my favorite character in this book. She delivered some awesome one liners.
"Oh boy, this douche canoe again…."
“Vodka? Chocolate? A blowtorch to fry his balls? What do you need?”
I can't wait to see what fireworks happens between her and Bray in the next book. Kendall Ryan never disappoints. Every book she writes, I enjoy.
Liked this better than book one in the series, Working It.
In this one, I was kind of proud of Emmy. She made Ben work for it. Well, that was the idea anyways. I mean, he was her ultimate temptation and was "hung like a hippo", not to mention he had a deliciously dirty mouth... So, okay, she struggled with it but it was her intent that mattered. Surprisingly, Ben sort of helped her with her lack of will power at times which was nice but Emmy was awesome in her own right.
I felt like I was Emmy's own personal cheerleader (for the most part) this time around.
I fully supported her decision to not move in with Ben right off the bat. She needed some independence and frankly some breathing room from all of the drama that comes with Ben Shaw. She may have conceded to one of his other requests but you couldn't really blame her.
Emmy was still insecure with herself but she was getting better. Once again, I can't really fault her for this.
*She had to put up with the Fiona BS for practically the ENTIRE book! Oh Gods, that was so awful!!
*She witnessed a photo shoot between Ben and his ex-girlfriend (who was, of course, a perfectly gorgeous supermodel). Who wouldn't be uncomfortable with that situation? Especially when she found out some scenes would be filmed with her topless!
*She watched Ben get it on with said ex-girlfriend... not in a cheating way or in the present but it still cut to the bone.
*Did I mention that b****, Fiona? I don't care if she's pregnant, I wanted to throw down with her!!
Rah, rah, rah! *shakes pom poms* Yup, cheerleading time for Emmy again.
*Major pat on the back when she took Ben up on his offer of a spa day. Instead of watching that uncomfortable shoot, she actually spared herself some unnecessary pain. Smart woman!
*She made him sweat after the "bad publicity" train wreck. Yea, that's what I'm calling it.
*She stood up to Fiona at the hospital. BAM! She put that b**** in her place. Well, as much as you can force Fiona into a place.
As for Ben... he will NEVER equate to Book Boyfriend material in my book, even if he was much more tolerable in this book. I just can't understand how he could continue to remain so clueless where Fiona was concerned. He knew she was evil and horribly rude to Emmy and then he makes excuses for her and is afraid to hurt her feelings.
"She means well, Ellie, trust me. You don't know her like I do."
"I knew I should tell her about me and Emmy and figured now was a good time. I wouldn't have to see the pain in her eyes. I didn't want to hurt her."
"I was happy for her. She'd finally got what she so desperately wanted- to be a mother."
Someone pass me the barf bag, please. Who the f*** cares about her, Ben?!
And Ben, did you actually have your ex pick out Emmy's vacation clothes? *pulls out the stupid stick to smack him upside the head*
On the plus side, he was faithful to Emmy. He loved her and worked hard to earn her trust back, even with the curveballs that were thrown his way.
I was surprised that Fiona was a weaker force of nature to be reckoned with in this book. Don't get me wrong, she played her role as villainess quite well but not to the extent I thought she would. Admittedly, I was relieved!
I adored Ellie! Who wouldn't love a BFF who offers to blowtorch your boyfriend's balls because he's acting like an idiot? Hee hee. I'm curious to see where her and Braydon's story will go in the next book, All or Nothing.
So glad that Ben and Emmy found their HEA with one another. I had so many problems with Working It (and half-promised myself I wouldn't continue on with the series) but can say that I'm happy I completed their journey with Craving Him! (And at half the price to boot!)
Fabulous, page turner, romantically sexy, and my new personal favorite!
I started reading this series after finishing Filthy Beautiful Lies and Fifty Shades of Grey. Truthfully, I was not sure if it would be able to compete. But compete it did. The characters are so real and fun. They are adventurous and flawed in ways that are certainly worth the time and patience. The plot was twisted, but not overly so. K. R. Writes in a way that is sexy, sophisticated, and easy to read--and become addicted to for sure.
I enjoyed the major characters, Emmy and Ben. Their relationship was so exciting and spicy. Ben is sexy. Emmy is real. I loved the minor characters. Ellie sounds just like my own best friend, and Braydon is a total stud. I loved to hate the billion--Fiona the world hates you. But in the end, through the ups and downs, the drama, the wining and dining, I'm left with just one word to describe this series...satisfying.
Buying the next book as we speak. Can't wait to get into Braydon and Ellie's minds!
