~*★Review★*~ Crave by Teresa Mummert

Author: Teresa Mummert
Release Date: February 29, 2016
Genre: New Adult, Paranormal


All I craved was one night to forget about the tragic murder of my brother Marcus. Elijah Malakai seemed like the perfect person to take my mind off everything my family had endured. He was a hunter and for the first time in years, I felt safe.

But Elijah had his own tragic past. As his secrets unraveled, my world was thrown into turmoil once more.

I had to decide whether or not Elijah was worth the pain his past would bring and if I was strong enough to stand by his side and fight.

Reviewer: Melyssa

Crave is a little different than some of the previous books I've read by Teresa, but much like the other stories, I enjoyed this one as well. For the story in the pages, the characters and what they face, but most of all for being a different type of story.
I enjoy paranormal stories, but it's been awhile since I've taken a chance on a vampire story. I'm glad that I took the chance, coming back to this style and type of book with this one. It was an enjoyable read. The connection between the characters is quite instant, but the reasoning for it, which the more I read the more I managed to piece together, worked for me. I enjoyed that aspect most. I think it played perfectly into the story of Eva and Elijah.
What also worked for me was the emotion displayed by her after the loss of her brother. Also the twists and turns surrounding it, but definitely just how deep the loss of him affected her. Changed her. Made her different from the girl that everyone seemed to know before. But at the same time, somehow better. And as the story progresses even stronger.
Elijah, who is he, what he is, I have to admit I was hoping for that from the start. I wanted him to be something more than just how he appears when they first meet and for the first bit afterwards and the author, along with the characters delivered.
What I didn`t expect was just how deep this was all going to go. The trials, and tests and lies versus' truth that would come into play here, but I did enjoy the fact that it did. It kept me guessing and I`m starting to see with a lot of Teresa`s books, that she does that a lot. At least for this reader.
The only thing that I have to say kept this from being a five star read for me was the deviation from dream like sequence to real time. It confused me a couple of times and did take a re-read or two to get on the same page, but it wasn`t enough that it impaired my enjoyment of the story in a long term way.
After reading this, I look forward to not only reading more of her work in the future, but maybe more books in this genre since this one worked very well.
If you`re a fan of the author, paranormal romance with just the right hint of edge of your seat suspense, then this might be a book you want to give a try. I'm glad I did.
