5 Star Review by Ashley
I'm going to get this out of the way early, this book was hard to read. I can usually knock out a book in a day or two tops- Crave Me took four- FOUR!!! There were a few occasions I had to put the book down and walk away because it made my chest physically ache. But it was so worth it! I'm not even sure I can put into words everything that M. Robinson did to me. Pick and emotion- anger, happiness, joy, fear, shock, shame, love, hope... it poured out of me while reading.
Briggs and Austin's story touched me in a way the others in this series didn't. That isn't to say the other books weren't great because they were but there was something about their story that took me to another level. My heart bled for them for different reasons. They had both been through so much at a young age and it had all but broken them. They handled their respective issues differently and through the magic of fate found themselves in each others path. They found something in each other neither had before- a safe place to land, comfort, acceptance, peace, forgiveness and love. It was all going great until it wasn't.
I won't tell you what happened to get them to the point but it will tear your heart out. Decisions were made. Lines were crossed. Promises were broken. Ultimatums were given. Choices were made. Hearts were broken. AND I cried my eyes out- full on ugly cry.
Now, this is M. Robinson- so every tear she made me cry, she also gave me two smiles. She balanced the hope and hurt so well that I never knew what was around the next corner for Briggs and Austin. While I hated their downfall, I loved their road to redemption. Austin and Briggs' journey was long and painful. Every moment of everyday was a struggle to put the broken pieces of themselves back together. They are so wonderfully flawed and perfectly human that I couldn't help but want them to get their happiness. But that ending...holy moly- didn't see that coming at all and I HAVE to know who, why, what- how?
