Title: Crave
Author: BJ Harvey
Genre: Erotic Suspense
Release Date: October 20, 2015


I have a craving.

A dark urge I’ve failed to resist despite years of trying to do that very thing.

I’ve forced myself to hide behind a mask, a perfect orchestration to hide my true self.

After I met her, my wants and needs, my inner most desires changed.

She encouraged me to embrace who I truly am, and she was willing to do anything and everything I wanted, giving herself to satisfy my most carnal appetite.

Then everything in my carefully managed world came crashing down around me. A moment in time, a loss of control, and the very thing I cherish was nearly taken from me.

My fate now lies in her hands.

The very life I’ve built for myself…everything I’ve ever done now waits in purgatory, all caused by a lack of focus at a time when my most concentrated attention was needed.

The very thing I crave may now be the end of me.


I wasn't too sure what to expect from CRAVE. All I knew is that I NEEDED to read it and that it would be one of those sexy ones.. That was definitely a good enough reason for me.

Now. Delving into this book was a whole new story. Loving it would put an understatement to describe CRAVE.









I will admit, the beginning was a little slow, only because it resembled every other sexy read. I also wasn't a huge fan Callum having to explain the type of character that he was. In my personal opinion, I'd rather would have had that be witnessed or mentioned by someone else.


BUT was way before all hell broke lose. Everything you expect in new adult romance novel or even an erotica was met by CRAVE, but it went well beyond that. It capture something in my mind that I still can't explain what it is but all I know is that I NEED more!!

Callum was always a mystery to me. Despite having his personality being highlighted I bold, that still wasn't enough to make up my mind in the type of character that he was. Yes he slept with a lot of women. Yes those were all one night stands that almost always seem to want the more that he never so much as thinks about giving them. Yes he is sexy as hell. He even has such a sinful mind that I could not for the life of me, not want to NEED more of it. Is that bad? I mean, I was at the edge of my sit in trying to figure out what he will conjure up next..

He is a player, a well know business man who seems to have that arrogant side to him that tends to taint you once you become famous. But that wasn't in any way a bad thing.. Not until he met Lucia. The woman who messes up his mind and turns up the volume when it comes to what Callum knows..

He loses sight of who he is or who he thought he was, and ends up being swallowed up by all things Lucia. Little does he know..

CRAVE had some great elements that made it an emotional journey with very strong and tainted characters.

Callum and Lucia both have their very own stories to tell.

They both have a past which will play a role in their current and future lives.

They also have a mindset and heart that cannot seem to agree with each other.

Callum doesn't know what it is about her but he WANTS HER. He CRAVES HER unlike any other women he had before.. The only problem is, well, he isn't so sure that the life he tried so hard to master, will come crumbling down. But that really was never an option since he knew that from the moment she said her name, he was gone. His fate is in her hands and he will be damned before he lets her slip away.

Lucia hasn't stopped from having her head in the gutter from the moment she saw who Callum was. It wasn't possible for her to think straight when it came to him. No. But, should she give way to temptation despite hardly knowing anything but what the media is trying to tell us about him? She may be stubborn but will she leave all her built up walls when it comes to love, loyalty and courage? Will she let Callum in?

Giving in to temptations sounds easy enough, but not when it comes to the consequences of the unknown!

A suspenseful story full of an emotional rollercoaster that will bring you to question your own mind when it comes to how worth it love truly is.. and who do you give it to..?

CRAVE is dark, gripping, emotional, sinfully sexy and all round a fast read that will make you CRAVE more...

THANK YOU B.J. Harvey and fellow kiwi ;) for providing an ARC of this gorgeously dark story!! I think I will forever hold a special place for Callum in my heart.. he is one in a million!

“What was that thought?” she asks curiously.

I lift my eyes from her hand resting on the black leather seat between us to her face to see a sly smile has appeared on her lips. “What thought?”

“The one that just had dirty written all over it.” Her smile grows wide, her eyes glittering with heat and a touch of amusement at the position she’s cornered me into.

“It’s a thought that would be more suited to the end of the date, if we are following your predetermined description of a how a first date should be, that is.”

Heat overtakes amusement as the air inside the car crackles with the right type of tension, the exact type of mood I have been hoping for and dreading. Our eyes remained locked, like neither one of us is able or willing to look away from the other.

Knowing I’d need to acquiesce, I look back down to where her hand rests beside her leg and bite the bullet, reaching over and lacing my fingers with hers.

“See?” she says as I catch her smile out of the corner of my eye. “Wasn’t that hard, was it?”

“It’s like that, is it?” I say, my voice filled with humor. She leans over, turning her body toward mine and rests her mouth against my jaw, just below my ear.

“If you want something from me, Callum, you just need to ask for it or take it. I highly doubt any of the thoughts running through that very handsome, highly intelligent head of yours could put me off.” Her breath warms my skin, sending the nerve endings into overdrive. “You’re welcome to try though . . .”

Before I can attempt to put my public mask in place, I tilt my head until we are cheek to cheek. Presented with an opportunity, I follow my instincts and graze my teeth slowly against her ear lobe. “I was thinking how your hand would feel touching me again . . .”

Her breath stutters momentarily, before quickening. She pulls back, leaning her shoulder into the seat but not returning to her side. “I’m sure we can arrange to hold hands again, Callum. It’s all part of getting to know each other.”

I mimic her pose, our bodies still close but not touching, as I let out an uncharacteristic chuckle. “You’re trouble with a capital T.”

“And I’m thinking, Mr. Alexander, there’s something about my brand of trouble that you’re drawn to.”
