I finally understand why people compare this series to Twilight so much. The covers are very similar, and they are both teenage angsty vampire romance stories. In addition to being similar to Twilight, I also feel like Crave was reminiscent of Vampire Academy.

I loved the more traditional vampires (no sparkling in the sunlight - yay!) and the inclusion of more paranormal species. Nothing felt thrown in just for the heck of it. Everything had a purpose. I also really enjoyed the relationship between Grace and Jaxon.

On the other hand, I didn't enjoy the pop culture references. It got very redundant towards the end, and I especially did not enjoy the slang/abbreviations (wtf, fml, af, and so on). It didn't really add anything to the story, and it took me out of the reading experience when they appeared.

Crave was still very entertaining and I look forward to reading Crush to see what happens next.

About the Author

Tracy Wolff is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over sixty novels that run the gamut from young adult action adventures to new adult romance and from women’s fiction to erotica. A long-time lover of vampires, dragons and all things that go bump in the night, Tracy loves nothing more than combining her affection for paranormal creatures with her love of writing tortured heroes and kick-butt heroines.

When she’s not writing (which is a rare occurrence), she can be found trying out new recipes, offering make-up tips online, wandering comic book/gaming stores with her sons, and watching movies or plotting stories with her besties. A one time English professor, she now writes full-time from her home in Austin, Texas, which she shares with her family. Her most recent work, the young adult vampire novel, CRAVE, “is about to become fandom’s new favorite vampire romance obsession” (Hypable).
