    I ll be honest, this book did not sparkle and I hope you are ready for a review with 1 bad twilight puns and 2 Robert Pattinson reenacting my thoughts But before I get to it, I d like to make very clear that my love for the Twilight series has the life expectancy of Carlisle Cullen, and so it has existed since collars were all the rage and it will stay flawless, strong and pretty hot for a dad.So as much as the vampire genre seems to have been buried by authors and publishers for some years I ll be honest, this book did not sparkle and I hope you are ready for a review with 1 bad twilight puns and 2 Robert Pattinson reenacting my thoughts But before I get to it, I d like to make very clear that my love for the Twilight series has the life expectancy of Carlisle Cullen, and so it has existed since collars were all the rage and it will stay flawless, strong and pretty hot for a dad.So as much as the vampire genre seems to have been buried by authors and publishers for some years, my love for vampires in general, even those that don t sparkle, has not been derailed So imagine my restrained excitement when back in 2019 it started to look like the genre may be slowly awakening Although listen, at this rate of disappointment, we may as well keep it underground because y all.Y ALL I seem to keep walking into a wall every time I pick up thenewest, freshest, reinvented, cooler Twilight And it makes me want to cry.And despite it all, and even after the fiasco that was The Beautiful by Ren e Ahdieh, my review here , I must admit that I requested the eARC of Crave with hope and excitement To be fair, it was not as if I had extremely high expectations, as I had never even heard of the author and the title really caught me by surprise But dammit, my little undead heart did start beating and I picked up this book with a little too much joy at the perspective of immersing myself in a world where vamps that go to high school, wear leather jackets, drive volvos with no seatbelt and look disgusted when they find you hot are a damn thing again.Well, just like Bella asking to be bitten once and for all, a girl can keep dreaming.In all honesty, the first third of the book did not exactly disappoint me Vampires and shifters in a boarding school in Alaska does have its own charm Te beginning was the perfect set up for the story I was craving Fangs were out and ready to sink in Much to my dismay, it was like what I expect every Cullen clan member went through as they turned to their vegetarian diet DaMn CaRlIsLe, tHiS aIn t GoOd bUt OkAy I gUeEsS In other words, my mouth stopped watering at the first taste of what I was really getting into, and honestly I continued reading because a girl gotta eat.The culprit The moment the book turned into that recycled tug of war between the snowflake teenage girl whose life is in DaNgErRrR and that refuses to leave behind the bad boy she met 5 minutes ago and the bad boy that hides something and bathes the heroine in warnings to stay away but fails at communicating muchthanI m DaNgErOuSsS oKaAyY .Groundbreaking stuff huh Too bad really, too damn bad If that dizzying back and forth between heroine and love interest had not been taken that far to that dizzying point , Crave would have been a solid read for me Sadly, it turned out to be nothingthan that Onebook that s pitched like thenewest, freshest, reinvented, cooler Twilight and it is nothing like.Rating 2.5 5 stars I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review

    Missed Twilight Grace s life change after her parents died in a car accident, and so, from the life she knows in hot California she moves to the frozen Alaska, but discovers she has to deal with much greater troubles than the cold ,She moves in with her uncle Finn and his daughter Macy Finn runs a private prestigious academy, but from the moment she enters Katmere , Grace doesn t feel like she belong Missed Twilight Grace s life change after her parents died in a car accident, and so, from the life she knows in hot California she moves to the frozen Alaska, but discovers she has to deal with much greater troubles than the cold ,She moves in with her uncle Finn and his daughter Macy Finn runs a private prestigious academy, but from the moment she enters Katmere , Grace doesn t feel like she belongs there Everyone hides something, and she has no idea what In her first day, Grace meets the most popular boys at school, and the great enemies Flint the nice boy who received her with a big smile and Jackson the broken, tormented and mysterious boy who, despite his not so very nice welcome, she can t stop thinking about him and his secrets And so, Grace reveals a new world A world of vampires, dragons, wolf shifters and witches and she, the mortal, is still trying to decide where she belongs But is Grace s arrival at the Academy was destiny Or did someone deliberately bring her there to stir up an old monster and start a new war The book was a combination of Twilight the vampires, werewolves and the mortal linking them and Harry Potter the prestigious school and the girl who finds out about a new world, she is part of BUT it was the modern upgraded version ,I liked that although there were lots of characters which can be confusing, Tracy presented them at the right time, I loved the expectation for Grace to discover the truth However, since this is a teen book , rather than an action between the characters, most of the plot was full of descriptions and explanations which was interesting, until about 70%, where I started to get tired Well, probably because this book is very VERT long 592 pagesHowever, I couldn t ignore the Twilight style plot, of the teenage girl who refuses to give up on the bad boy she met just 10 minutes ago even though when she s with him, her life is in danger every 5 minutes and the bad boy that I had no idea why he was attracted to her in the first place, who warns her that he is dangerous, but can t get away So there is no doubt that comparison to Twilight is inevitable BUT if you ask me, this book was muchsophisticated, with the addition of humor and sexual tension PG 13 obviously which totally made me frustrated, because come on, TAKE OF YOUR SHIRT, GODDAMMIT , , ,I didn t read many YA books to compare, but I totally enjoyed this book and the ending left me curious forthis is a first book from a series, end with a cliffhanger It was full of action, paranormal, love and lots of humor O O E O I T G I IT Y OG O O E E IE

    Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature Apparently the market for breathless YA romances with sexy vampires isn t fully saturated yet, because Crave, a new paranormal romance thriller by Tracy Wolff that cheerfully admits to being inspired by Twilight check out the blatant knock off cover offers readers a slightly updated take on the genre.When her parents are killed in an automobile accident, high school aged Grace reluctantly leaves San Diego and travels to the remote, icy interio Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature Apparently the market for breathless YA romances with sexy vampires isn t fully saturated yet, because Crave, a new paranormal romance thriller by Tracy Wolff that cheerfully admits to being inspired by Twilight check out the blatant knock off cover offers readers a slightly updated take on the genre.When her parents are killed in an automobile accident, high school aged Grace reluctantly leaves San Diego and travels to the remote, icy interior of Alaska, where her uncle Finn is headmaster of an exclusive boarding school, Katmere Academy Grace s cousin Macy, who picks her up in Healy for a ninety minute snowmobile ride to the luxurious, castle like prep school, is anxious to help Grace fit in The problem is, almost all of the other students at Katmere seem to be hostile to Grace especially Jaxon Vega, the hot, dangerous looking guy who is the first person Grace meets upon her arrival Grace is at least at first determined not to let herself fall for Jaxon, although there s something in his eyes that makes her think he s as lost as she is Their relationship runs hot and cold, but there s something or someone at Katmere Academy that seems to want Grace dead, and she may need all the friends she can find Crave promises to deliver an updated version of Twilight, but other than a stronger erotic element and the addition of plenty of F bombs, it doesn t really deliver on that pledge Heroine wise, Grace is a slight improvement over Bella, but not markedly so She makes far too many impulsive, rash decisions Crave s Alaska setting isn t drawn in any detail, other than that it s freezing cold there Though it s set in an inaccessible prep boarding school, shades of Hogwarts, I don t recall any particular mention of any classes or teachers The focus is on the social scene at Katmere, the romantic tension between Grace and Jaxon, and the mystery about who wants to kill Grace, and why.Grace and the book take an inordinate amount of time to get clear about the paranormal nature of Katmere s students, although the book s cover and blurb spill the secret up front There s some interest for readers in finding out what type of powers each of the different cliques at Katmere have hint it s not just vampires and werewolves The romance stays in PG 13 territory, though the erotic bloodsucking scene was somewhat of an eyebrow raiser Crave s mystery element adds some intrigue to the romance driven plot, but readers should know that the book ends on a major cliff hanger Add to the above issues a first person, present tense narration, something that s difficult to pull off well even in much better novels Twilight was a guilty pleasure at the time I read it, sending me scrambling for the next book in the series Crave wasn t nearly as much fun for me Crave is a book I d recommend only to readers who are still enthusiastic about paranormal romances and Twilight type plots, and who are on board with adult language and steamier romance.Initial post Receives ARC of book Nice publicity package BTW Scratches head Is another Twilight knock off really what we need Reads book Twilight withsmoldering gazes and making out,F bombs, colder weather, a slight upgrade to Bella not as much as I hoped , and erotic bloodsucking And bonus told in first person present tense.Another bonus Cliffhanger ending

    Does the world need another brooding vampire love story Yes.Grace s parents were killed in an accident, so she has to move from San Diego to Alaska, where her uncle is the head of a fancy prep school in a remote town And while Alaska itself is a total shock to her system, she s not expecting school to be in an actual castle, nor is she expecting everyone to take an immediate dislike to her.When she catches the eye of Jaxon Vega, the hottest guy she s ever seen, surrounded by a group of broodin Does the world need another brooding vampire love story Yes.Grace s parents were killed in an accident, so she has to move from San Diego to Alaska, where her uncle is the head of a fancy prep school in a remote town And while Alaska itself is a total shock to her system, she s not expecting school to be in an actual castle, nor is she expecting everyone to take an immediate dislike to her.When she catches the eye of Jaxon Vega, the hottest guy she s ever seen, surrounded by a group of brooding, handsome guys, she is mesmerized But he quickly breaks the spell by telling her she s in danger and should never have come to the school.But there s something about Jaxon that she can t shake, and despite his veil of disdain, she knows he feels it, too After a series of near death experiences have him rescuing her every time, she starts to discover that maybe Jaxon is right, and she is a pawn in a battle she has no idea about.As their relationship intensifies, Grace must make a choice go back to San Diego, where she will be safe, or possibly sacrifice everything for Jaxon including her life She doesn t know much about the world of vampires, dragons, werewolves, witches, and shapeshifters, but she s in the middle of all of it.Of course, Crave immediately reminded me of Twilight , and even its cover design is similar But while both share brooding, passionate stories of dangerous love, Crave really set up a tantalizing world of humans being torn apart by events some don t even understand.This was an angsty yet romantic book, but it took a long, long time to hit its stride There were far too many times where things happened and people clammed up rather than tell Grace the truth about what was going on But once she figured it all out, it was like a roller coaster, speeding toward a cliffhanger conclusion for which we ll have to wait until the next book There are no sparkling vampires, no earnest werewolves, but there are plenty of characters to swoon over And that s just fine with me.Check out my list of the best books I read in 2019 at Check out my list of the best books of the decade at all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoria.blogspot.com.Follow me on Instagram at

    Crave is like Twilight grew up to be a witty, sophisticated feminist with a flare for fun and sexual tension When reading, Crave the easiest comparison to draw would be that of, Twilight But I feel like I would not be giving the author the credit due for what she has done for this genre No, Crave may be the vampire love story we were missing from Stephanie Meyer s series but we have arrived in 2020sophisticated, demandingfrom our heroines, and our literature I sat with Grac Crave is like Twilight grew up to be a witty, sophisticated feminist with a flare for fun and sexual tension When reading, Crave the easiest comparison to draw would be that of, Twilight But I feel like I would not be giving the author the credit due for what she has done for this genre No, Crave may be the vampire love story we were missing from Stephanie Meyer s series but we have arrived in 2020sophisticated, demandingfrom our heroines, and our literature I sat with Grace and Jaxon in every room and on every piece of furniture in my home and devoured, Crave from breakfast to bedtime You will fall in love with the elegant world of Katmere Academy You will gasp and plea for each page of romance, conflict, and plot twists You will giggle, smile, and swoon at the texts exchanged and the witty dialogue between every lovable character You will devote yourself to a faction and declare your loyalty to dragon, witch, vampire, or werewolf Your heart will skip, soar, and sink for Jaxon along with his gaze and charm You will identify with the strength, smarts, and cautious vulnerability of Grace, our heroine And you will be left, like me, completely mind blown by an amazing ending, ready to journey Alaska, and what comes next in the world Tracy Wolff has created
