“Craving” is an AMAZINGLY GOOD start and/or the first book to a wonderful saga that is told in three books. “Craving” being the first book that introduced the story, characters, gave me a visual of the story, and set up the MAJOR, MAJOR conflicts that may or may not be dealt with by the end of the saga. Talon and Jade being the main characters of this story came together in a collision of feelings, WILD sex, and definitely experience emotional drama that left me feeling sad for both characters. Both, Talon and Jade had terrible events happen to them that effected their ability to love each other.
Talon had the worst history by far! What happened to him as a child was terrible, horrible, and just plan awful on all levels of humanity. The author would have Talon go back in time when to remember the awful things that happen to him as a child. The reader also got to see how Talon’s memories were being relived due to the relationship that was occurring between him and Jade. Talon finds himself wanting to be with Jade in every way but at the same time he can’t and tells her several times to leave. Jade knows he doesn’t want her to really leave because he’s flipped out in the past. The whole thing is confusing for Jade who has her commitment issues also.
I loved this book for the awesome characters and their role in the story. I think it was a great beginning to a story that could happen anywhere, at any time to anyone. The author wrote about some serious issues that occurred in the past, today, and will unfortunately occur tomorrow. Which lead to the end of the first book. I guess the closer came when Talon kicked Jade out over a massage. Or, so she thought.
There were great elements to this story. I gave this story 4 ½ stars with the hope to read more about Jade and Talon in the future.

Passion sizzles between the two lovers...but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.
