This story was just more of the same that was in the first book, Fiona refuses to back off, her constant attempts to win Ben back are really rather pathetic. But what really ticked me off about this story was Ben and Emmy. He has secrets that have the potential to ruin what he and Emmy have, but it's his constant support of Fiona that's really really irritating, he refuses to see her in a realistic light. She's a malicious and manipulative woman that got on my last nerve, but to quote Ben " she means well" is this guy delusional or what. Then he allows his ex girlfriend London to pick out a new wardrobe for Emmy, that was another of his douche moves, and what does Emmy do through all this? Absolutely nothing. When what she should have done was run very quickly away from him, and try to find a backbone.
At one point I even said out loud, "Oh, I have a bad feeling about this. This is not good." My husband looked at me like I was absolutely insane. But, that's how talented of a writer she is - I feel so much I can't hold in and have to express myself out loud.
So let me express myself for a minute: I LOVE BEN SHAW!! Ben freaking Shaw has officially taken my number one book boyfriend spot. I love him. I'm obsessed with him. I miss him!
By the way, for those of you that haven't read Working It you need to, so stop what you're doing and go read the first book in this series and get acquainted with my newest obsession.
Craving Him picks up right where Working It left off. It was the perfect conclusion to Ben and Emmy's story and it was the perfect introduction into Ellie and Braydon's story, All or Nothing.
Ben and Emmy fight pretty much everything in order to be together, in particular Fiona. Ugh, I hate that woman. Seriously, I've never hated a character so much - I even messaged Kendall letting her know this. But I digress.
I love the dynamics between Ben and Emmy. Emmy is still battling insecurities, but she is much stronger in this book than she was in book one. Ben is still figuring out how to be a boyfriend, but he makes tremendous strides in this book. Their love grows and conquers and it's beautiful and freaking sexy! Holy sex!
Please, pick up this series. You won't be disappointed!
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.
Ellie said "Will you please take your girl out tonight, get her drink and tell her to stop worrying? Give her the d**k or something because she needs some serious stress relief."
'"Ellie," I warned.
"And since I hear you're hung like a hippo, I'm guessing that large love-stick would do the trick."
"Before you came along, I didn't know there was a piece of me missing. But there was. You've taken a place in my life, in my heart, that was empty before." Ben said.
