Gwen Sparks is the typical girl next door – if you lived next door to a skilled witch who could read the thoughts of the dead and owned her own magic shop, that is. Her ex is a werewolf, and her new love interest is a vampire, and if that isn’t enough excitement, local witches are being murdered, leading Gwen in search of a dangerous killer. Unfortunately, she must work with her ex, deal with a psychotic ghost, and try to keep her neck off the chopping block, while simultaneously trying to keep her life in check. Sometimes being a witch that everyone can count on can be a total bitch…
When I saw the photo for this ebook, I was thinking to myself, this is going to be a sexy book. Who doesn’t enjoy a good supernatural romance slash murder mystery? I love them. Craved is going to the top of my list this year though. Craved pulled me right from the start. I love the fact that they live in their own supernatural town. I fully believe that if supernatural beings such as vampires, werewolves, witches, etc were to ever come to light, they would want a place of their own. Its very political dealing with all the different species for lack of a different word.
Gwen Sparks is a very well rounded character who has the normal heartaches of any other young woman. She posses the very rare ability to read the memories of the recent dead. After a witch is found murdered, drained of blood, she is called in to help her ex-boyfriend, beautiful werewolf Micah discover clues about who did it by reading the poor girl’s thoughts. This is all while trying to avoid the advances of Aiden, a sexy vampire. See, just like a normal day in the park right? I don’t even know what to say about the male characters except *swoon*. I told you. I just knew this would be a sexy book and it did not disappoint. Gwen’s roommate was just like every roommate I have ever had so I found that very funny. The plot moved quickly and I was sucked in. I could not put this book down. I stayed up late reading it on my phone because I had to find out what happened.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes action, sexy vampires, romance, seduction, and mystery. I will warn you though, the end is shocking. I cannot wait for book two. I hope it lives up to the first book but with more romance. Hey, a girl has got to live vicariously through someone right? Why not a cute witch with a sexy supernatural boyfriend (I wont tell you who though)? Its my right as a reader to stalk the characters especially while waiting for the second book.
I was provided a ebook copy of Craved in order to facilitate my review. As always, my opinions are my own.
