book review

Title: Crave
SubTitle: The Clann
Publisher: Harlequin
Imprint: HarlequinTEEN
Pub Date: 10/25/2011
ISBN: 9780373210350

Savannah Colbert has been shunned all her life by the kids of the Clann. And when she undergoes some drastic changes after a strange illness, Savannah learns secrets about the group and about herself—dangerous secrets. For the Clann are powerful magic users, and Savannah herself is half Clann and half vampire—a forbidden, unheard of combination. Falling for Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman isn't just a bad idea—it could be deadly if anyone finds out. But her attraction to Tristan—and his to her—isn't something either of them can resist for long.
My Review:
Savannah is not popular, in fact she has been shunned since the 4th grade by the very kids she once called her bestfriends. She is awkward and shy, longing for the approval of her dad that shows up a handful of times during the year to play the role of Father. Tristan is popular, the golden prince of Jacksonville, and possibly the future leader of the Clann. He has been forced to no longer have contact with Savannah, but cannot stop thinking about her.

One day Savannah becomes deathly sick, and thats when her life is flipped upside down. She learns what she is and has to come to terms with it, and the rules that accompany this new life. This is where the book goes from good to gooder by the way! Secrets are revealed and lines are drawn. Now its up to Savannah to follow the rules or face the consequences.

Forbidden love is one of my most fav types of romances, and this book is packed full of it. I was absolutely smitten with Mr. Tristan...he is adorably swoony. And it was nice getting his POV throughout the book and how he was feeling. Especially when he was jealous...I found it quite humorous.

I was absolutely taken with this storyline, completely lost in it.The story was so engrossing, I had to make myself stop each night so I wouldn't fly through it. I wanted what I read that day to sink in. You have these 2 amazing characters that I immediately fell in love with. I woke up the next morning still thinking about them, wondering what's going to happen to them in the next book, Covet. So yeah, Crave is a must read!

With family secrets pulling Savannah and Tristan at all angles, will they be able to make love work or will it end up tearing them apart?
