"Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail.
For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back…different, and suddenly he can't stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences…."
This is another great book I had the pleasure of reading and love. The author, Ms. Darnell did an amazing job in capturing the characters, their world, and the rules that lye within it. I was very satisfied that I had found a Savannah, that no only had backbone to her, but her fierce loyalty to her loved ones made me smile.
What I liked most about this book is the greatly written characters. Both characters Savannah and Tristan showed great developmental traits in their characters as well as power. They used their brains and their heart to fight. As always said, two is better than one.
The plot line of this book had me excited. Every turn of the page was a new rule, a new trial for them to go through, but it did not stop them of who they are. They made their way through lots of distractions. But I believe these distractions will give them the strength the need to endure to the end. I loved all the action, the fighting, the tense moments of love and lust. So much working against them and for them, made my heart thump hard in my chest.
Crave is a powerful written novel that captures the reader right away. Ms. Darnell wastes no time is grasping the reader and pulling them into the story. You will fall in love with the world Ms. Darnell created. Filled with love, action, forbidden love, and characters that break the rules, Crave will leave you wanting more!
I give it 5 BITES!
