Crave by B.J. Harvey

I have a craving.

A dark urge I’ve failed to resist despite years of trying to do that very thing. 

I’ve forced myself to hide behind a mask, a perfect orchestration to hide my true self. 

After I met her, my wants and needs, my inner most desires changed. 

She encouraged me to embrace who I truly am, and she was willing to do anything and everything I wanted, giving herself to satisfy my most carnal appetite. 

Then everything in my carefully managed world came crashing down around me. A moment in time, a loss of control, and the very thing I cherish was nearly taken from me. 

My fate now lies in her hands. 

The very life I’ve built for myself…everything I’ve ever done now waits in purgatory, all caused by a lack of focus at a time when my most concentrated attention was needed. 

The very thing I crave may now be the end of me.

I received a copy of Crave in exchange for an honest review.
At first glance Crave looked like a book about two characters battling with their intense sexual desires and falling in love. However, This book was so much more in every way. Yes it was erotic, there was plenty of suspense and a blossoming romance between the two main characters. Crave was so much more than this  though. The characters were so flawed and complex that i was completely enraptured by their story. 

Callum is such a damaged hero and his fear and cravings make him an absolute wonder to read. You can hardly imagine what he must feel at times even though your reading from his point of view because he feels so deeply and with a beautiful intensity that at times he was completely breathtaking. 

Lucia “Luce” Harding is a fantastic heroine for Callum and his brooding ways. She has all the qualities you want in a female lead, she is Stubborn, independent, sassy and has an abidance of inner strength that she willingly gives to Callum. 

Crave is a compelling read and Callum and Luce's story will stay with you long after you finish the last page.
