blurb red


As a half-breed vampire, Ella Grey’s life sucks. She does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah. He’s hot, dangerous and knows it. He’d be just Ella’s type if he weren’t likely to kill her the moment she put a toe out of line.

A chance encounter with a succubus changes everything. From the second the succubus’s spell washes over them, Ella and Micah are helpless to keep their hands off one another. The sex, when it’s not leaving them on the verge of death, is earth shattering and for the first time in ages Ella is connected with someone on a level she’d feared lost forever. But a dangerous prophecy has been set into motion, and if Ella’s not careful it’ll pull her straight from Micah’s arms and into the deepest bowels of the underworld.

review red

I enjoy finding authors that can keep me entertained in their novels. Dark Cravings is the first novel in a new series that this author has started and it kept me intrigued immediately from the beginning of the story until the end, starting with the cover (which I love covers). She brings to her readers a world that is like a treasure box filled with non stop action, sizzling hot scenes, and twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  Ella and Micah are basically thrown at each other due to a demon; however, not everything is as it seems and there may be more doors that has to be cleared to find out what is going on. Being two Shadow Hunters in this predicament does have some consequences and you learn more about them as you get further into book. The scenes are amazing from the way the author has all the fighting to the sizzling erotic ones (if you turn red trust me you may look like a lobster with some of these scenes) but they are well worth it, you can tell that it is well thought and not something just put together. Another thing that I noticed is that the author loves to keep her audience on their toes, again as I said before you will be on the edge of your seat because how far will you go when the ones you love is in danger? The characters that the author brings to you are exceptional and even the secondary characters are amazing because they each hold a place in this story (and could possibly be useful in other books). You almost always feel a connection between yourself and these characters in my opinion especially the main characters. The descriptions that are given are just enough so we are able to visualize the story line. Of course with every great novel comes villains and in this one there is one for sure possibly two. I and wondering how the author plans are for the possible second one.

If you love the paranormal world filled with vampires, demons, shape shifters then this book is definitely one that you need to be picking up. I have fallen in love with this author’s writing style and will definitely look forward to reading more. Happy reading and be sure to pick your copy up of Dark Craving!
