Crave by Sierra Cartwright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A new series from Sierra Cartwright! I was so excited about this book, ran out and bought at the "early release" and devoured it in a day! Pretty much the same way I do all of Ms. Cartwright's books!
I fell in love with the characters right away, immediate connection. Not just the main characters either.
Julien - I really liked how he was true and protective of his friend, Reese, when Sarah wanted him to help her get back with him for just one night. Julien was one tough cookie with a lot of pull! Seems the man could make anything happen!
Reese - Sarah left him 2 years ago, just disappeared out of his life. Left him hurt, disbelieving, sad, mad, and finally "over it", or so he tried to make himself believe. Then after all that time, there was Sarah back in his life, but for how long?
Sarah - For the last 2 years since she ran away from Reese, because of a collar she found in his drawer, she hasn't been able to forget him, no matter how much she tred. No other man compared. She thinks that if she has just one night with Reese, as a submissive that she'll be able to move on.
One night turns into two, three, four.. well you get the idea.
This book was sad when you were given glimpses into the souls of these two people, Reese and Sarah. You rooted for them from the start. They were great together, they made me laugh at some of the things they said. Their relationship was believable. Everything was plausible and believable and I was swept up in the story from the beginning. I'm looking forward to the next in this series.
Hurry Sierra! Write! Write! Write!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Advanced reader's copy received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
An enjoyable read with a lot of HOT SEX!
Emily and Paul are on a journey of discovery, not only about each other, but about themselves too.
Can Emily truly let go and trust Paul to be faithful? Can Paul truly let go of his demons and give Emily the total commitment she needs to move on, and away, from her fear of him cheating on her?
Paul has had enough playtime submissives to last him a lifetime, he knows that he wants to give it all up and be a one sub Dom with Emily, but he knows she's holding back, but he doesn't know why.
A near death experience makes him realize that even though *he* may know that he'll be faithful, Emily doesn't and he sets out to prove it to her in one of the most intimate ways.
I have to admit, when I look back at the meat of this story, looking past the sex, (did i mention a LOT of sex?), that there was a very unique plot that unfolded. Reading a story that was, at least in part, from the Dom's point of view was interesting. I liked it, and it gave me food for thought. I am in a "lifestyle relationship" so reading a "Dom's thoughts" really spoke to me.
Thank you, Nikki, for supplying me an ARC and allowing me to read and review this book for you. It was very interesting! I don't see my Master doing some of the things that Paul did, but it was an interesting twist that left me wondering, "what if...." :)
I'm giving this book a 4 star rating, the only thing that keeps it from being a 5 star is the amount of sex, it tends to overshadow the actual story. It felt like the actual story was written into the sex, instead of the sex being written into the story.
