The next chapter in one of the most romantic love stories ever told
Luxury hotel heir Ian Gregson longed for his beloved Tessa from afar for more than two years, forced to keep his attraction towards her well hidden. But now that his feelings no longer have to remain a secret, he is free to indulge his constant craving for the woman of his dreams.
Shy, innocent Tessa Lockwood is dazzled by her handsome, sophisticated lover, and falls deeper and deeper under his spell with each passing day. But their newfound relationship will be tested by Tessa’s lifelong insecurities, and her fears of succumbing to the throes of depression that have always tormented her.
It will fall to Ian to convince her that their love is strong enough to overcome any obstacles that life might place in their way. And that now that he’s finally been able to make her his own, nothing and no one will ever keep them apart again.
Sweet love story
Crave continues the story of Ian and Tessa, starting right where Covet left off with Ian finding out Tessa is getting a divorce and now free to pursue. The author didn't waste any time getting these two together, which I was thankful for. With book 1 being all about their back story and not spent on their relationship, I was glad to finally see them as a couple.
Crave is a pretty low angst and safe read. Ian is 100% devoted to Tessa no matter how many women wanted him for themselves. He had eyes only for Tessa. I loved that he stayed celibate since the day he laid eyes on Tessa 2 years before and fell head over heels in love with her. This story was more a fairytale story. The rich handsome older man swept the young beautiful woman right off her feet. Buying her clothes, jewelry and sweet talking his way into completely taking care of her. I'm not sure any woman could have resisted Ian. Luckily Tessa was a deserving mate to Ian. Sweet, caring Tessa took care of Ian by loving the man and not the fortune.
A very sweet story and I look forward to the third installment Claimed.
