~Rating: 4/5 stars~
With five men for every woman, the selection of eligible bachelors in Breckenridge, Colorado during ski season couldn’t get much better. Casey Cassidy can’t help but enjoy the view. But Casey didn’t move here to sit on the sidelines. Desperate to get over Jason and find a man that wants a family, Casey finds Blaine Johnson – a wish come true. A hunky surfer turned ski instructor, he checks off every requirement on her list.
Except 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?
I was really surprised how much I liked the book when I had finished reading it.
Crave follows a young woman named Casey, her dealings with a perfect relationship that isn’t for her and the journey of self-discovery that sometimes what you think you may want is not the most important thing. Casey and Jason’s road to romance was rocky, but Jason’s emotional transformation in the end was so worth all Casey’s initial heartache. What I enjoyed about these two characters was their abiding love despite their differences and their willingness to forgive each other’s mistakes. No matter where they were, you knew that they were always thinking of the other person. Casey is a headstrong girl who, for the most part, is a likeable character. Her decision-making could use a little help, but she was developed rather well — with the help of a few other characters.
I really enjoyed this book. It had some good plot twists and great characters. I also really liked that a lot of the story revolved around skiing, it was something different that I haven’t read about and was refreshing.
I highly recommend it!
