Intelligent, loyal and incredibly kind, Raven is the type of heroine you can’t help but root for. L.L. Collins created a voice that was genuine, easy to relate to and impossible not to love. I felt every bit of Raven’s heartache and agonized over her feelings for both Brecken and Porter. Her experiences became my own as I lost myself to the raw emotions that colored the words of her journey. While Ravenous is clearly Raven’s story, so much of this book also belonged to Brecken and Porter. I adored getting to know both brothers and much like Raven, found myself drawn to each of them for entirely different reasons. I loved the dichotomy that L.L. Collins has created with these seemingly opposite personalities. While I enjoyed exploring their differences, I was enchanted by the similarities they shared and the insecurities that had marked them both so deeply. My heart definitely knew which brother it wanted more, but L.L. Collins had me second-guessing myself on multiple occasions in that fantastically frustrating way only she can.
L.L. Collins really outdid herself with Ravenous. Exquisitely written, perfectly paced and filled with vibrant, one-of-a-kind characters, I absolutely devoured this novel. When I wasn’t swooning over Brecken and Porter or falling in love with Raven, my heart was being invaded by the fantastic secondary characters that colored this book with so much light and levity. The author did an amazing job at balancing the angst of the past with the scorching hot encounters and heartfelt declarations of the present to deliver something magical and utterly captivating. Packed with breathtaking moments of emotional honesty, genuine vulnerability and subtle chemistry, Ravenous owned me entirely. From the first page to the last I was hooked on Raven, Brecken and Porter, desperate to know how their story would play out and anxiously awaiting every twist and turn L.L. Collins decided to throw my way.
Raven has had a rough upbringing, so she's doing everything she can to better her life and help get her sister out of the life she's in now, so when she's offered a job that can help get her the money she needs to help her younger sister Chrissy get out of her mom's care sooner rather than later, she's hesitant, but ultimately takes the job. When her first date ends up being with Porter Kingsley, the sexy surgeon she hits the jackpot, but she didn't realize his sexy twin brother Breck saw her and wants her too. This leads to an interesting story and Raven figuring out who she is and what she ultimately wants in life.
I loved watching Raven trying to figure out what she really wanted, and trying to figure out why she should stay away from the Kingsley brother's. One was the go to have fun with no strings attached buy, and the other was the "forever guy". She in her heart knew which one she wanted, but her head and her heart couldn't ever get on the same page, and this brought a lot of angst in this book. Trust me, at times you will want to throw your Kindle across the room for getting so frustrated with her. Not only is she going back and forth with these two guys, which I will say she isn't even seeing, she just can't get them out of her head, but she's dealing with her sister, and trying to be a good role-model for her, and trying to get through school. Raven is more grown up then most grown ups I know in real life. Her life isn't easy, and throw in trying to have a love life, and her life is crazy!
For being the youngest of the three main characters in this book, Raven to me was the most mature of all of them. She thinks things through and is always thinking of how her decisions are going to affect her and her sister. She puts Chrissy first in all of her decisions, where Breck and Porter hold resentment towards each other but don't talk to each other about it, and act as if everything is fine. They are both amazing men in their own right, but children at the same time. I did have my favorite of the two guys, but I won't say which, because I want you, the reader, to pick your favorite, and also because the other brother is getting his own book this summer, so I hope he ends up becoming more likeable in that book as well.
This book was a great story, but I felt as if we had so much build up to Raven finally figuring out what she wanted, and then BOOM it was over. I wish we could have had more of what it was like seeing her make that decision, and seeing her get her HEA, after seeing all of the struggles it took for her to get there. I loved how much her character grew in this book as well as how much all of the characters grew. It sucked seeing Emma's character sort of disappear in this book though since she was a huge part in the beginning of this story. I really enjoyed how this story progressed and the characters in this book. If you're looking for a unique romance to curl up with I highly suggest picking up Ravenous today!
When the story unfolds you learn Raven's motivation to do what she decides to, and how could you not love her for it; especially since she's lived through so much for someone so young. The money is great, and is more than she could've ever imagined making. It is also helping her get closer to her goal. I'm sure when she started this venture she wasn't expecting to like it, let alone fall in love. And with two men nonetheless.
Raven has always had to make her own decisions, but this is one that she preferred not to touch. But knowing she had no choice, she finally decides who she wants, and I couldn't agree with her more. Don't get me wrong both guys were gorgeous and sexy in the own ways, but I loved who she chose more than the other.
Seeing Raven get everything out of life that she deserved was great to read. She was given a crappy situation at the beginning stages of her life, but she had the ability to persevere. Gotta love that in a girl.
Overall, I would classify this as a definite must read. It grabs you from the very beginning as does not let you go until you read "The End". It'll have you in such a reading trance that you'll finish this in one sitting. It is worth the time it'll take you to read it so do yourself the favor and invest your time. You will not regret it.
