What It's About!
Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail. For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back…different, and suddenly he can't stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences…


I was hooked right from the first page. I read a good half of the book in the first sitting but after that I had to keep going back to it, because it felt like it was a lot of talking about Tristan and Savannah trying to hide their feelings from each other and too much going back and forth between does he/she like me or not. Get it over with already! 

That's the only complaint I have, besides that, the book keeps a pretty good pace. You get to see everything from both Savannah and Tristan's point of view. Usually I don't like this very much because it feels like too much skipping around and the characters are off doing something totally different and it takes a bit to get back to where they are. But in Crave, it shows both people's perspectives on the same thing, like what the same kiss felt like from both sides. I really enjoyed reading this.

Especially the last few chapters, I couldn't put it down! Savannah and Tristan end up in a bit of trouble, and I actually warmed up to Savannah's dad in the end. I highly recommend this book, it is a vampire book but it's definitely not a Twilight type of vampire story :)
