Review: Crave by Melissa Darnell

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….

My Thoughts: 
Before I start ,I would like to make one thing very clear if you HATE Twilight with your heart and soul,you will not like this book.
*EDIT= I DON'T HATE TWILIGHT! This is for people who do*
That said,I can say I enjoyed this book.Even though I had a weird sense of dejavu while I was reading it ,I couldn't put the book down and this book managed to keep my attention.
This book is told from both Tristan's and Savannah's point of view(YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!)
I love it when I can get into a guy's head and see what's going on! 
I liked Savannah,she was responsible and even though she did remind me of Bella ,she wasn't annoying.She used her brain and didn't act like a dumb idiot when someone she cared for was in danger.I loved the fact that she had such a nice relationship with her grandmother.
One thing I really liked about this book was Tristan.I liked him and the fact that I could actually read what was happening in his head helped me to understand him.
It was a little uncanny that both Savannah and Tristan has so much in common(situation wise NOT personality wise) and sometimes I felt like I should slap them and just tell them to get together already! 
Some of my favorite scenes in this book are between Tristan and Savannah's best friend.I also enjoyed  Tristan's reactions to situations Savannah ended up in . 
I would recommend you to read this book for Tristan because this book doesn't exactly consist of  a new spin on the vampire legends.Though the  Clann VS Vampires thing is a little interesting.
My Rating: 3/5
Quotes( from ARC may differ in  finished copy):

  • I gulped and leaned back in my chair again as I tried to think straight. To remember all the reasons why kissing that curve where her neck and shoulder met would be a bad idea.

  • “I can see why. And is that when you impress everyone with your manly snake-killing skills?” “Uh, no.” He twisted halfway toward me, his smile lopsided. “That’s when my dog Jake impresses everyone with his snake-killing skills, while I run off screaming like a girl and grab a shovel.”
These aren't my favorite quotes but the others are too SPOILERY!

  4. I don't hate Twilight atall and I am not at all ashamed to admit it. I actually think it is a great beach read, or an I need to get out of my own head read. Crave sounds delicious to me. I think the cover is beautiful. And, I have it on my Kindle. I can't wait to see what it is all about. Thanks for your review!

  5. Well, I definitely not hate Twilight but I'm not a super fan either, :)
    Anyway, I have read Crave already (though not an ARC) and I liked it.. It wasn't entirely great but it was not bad either. I have to say I love Tristan's character and I liked that the book was told in alternating POVs.

    Nice review! ;)
