Review: Crave (Fire & Iced #1)

Crave (Fire & Ice #1) by Violet Vaughn

Publisher: Suagarloaf Publishing, 2014
276 pages, kindle edition
Source: Free though Amazon

Synopsis (from Goodreds):
Casey Cassidy is a girl who gets what she wants.

Determined to get over Jason and find a man that wants a family, she moves to Breckenridge, Colorado.

Landing a job skiing every day, Casey finds Blaine Johnson - a wish come true. A hunky surfer turned ski instructor, he checks off every requirement on her list.

Expect for the one she forgot to add.

Blaine has a secret. A secret so big it keeps intimacy smoldering, when Casey needs fire. No matter how hard she tries, the embers won't ignite. Can she live without passion to get the family she craves?

When Jason comes to town, Casey questions everything she wished for. Their consuming love threatens to explode and ruin her dream. Will she have to choose between a family and the love of her life?

My Review:
Crave is focused on Casey and Jason, and a few other characters. Obviously this is a love story with mild erotic scenes. Casey has found herself cheated on one again by some new boyfriend, and who’s there to pick up the pieces when she’s cheated on? Jason. He is also there throughout the story for her, as she dates yet another ‘perfect’ guy, who turns out to not be perfect. How long will he be there for her before she realizes that she needs him? Before she realizes that kids are not entirely important.

I found myself really disliking the main character a lot, Casey was such a conceited bitch to everyone. When things didn’t go her way she’d start crying or texting someone to fix it for her. In the end everything goes her way, because she’s pretty and popular. Also there was a slight tendency to over describe things that weren’t necessary to the story.

I liked that all of the characters were all really well thought out, and really realistic. If I didn’t know any better I’d think they were real people that the author knows in real life.

My Rating:
