Book Review: Crave

He was invading Sandra’s dreams, a man too good to be true. She was Jacob’s remedy to everything, but he’ll have to catch her if he wants another chance. Debut author Evelyn Sola brings you CRAVE, the first book in her Clark Family series. Fans of soulmate romance with light tones and sexy scenes will devour this must-read romance!

Before THAT night, the over the top party and the cake incident, I spent Saturday nights with girlfriends, lamenting my life over margaritas.
I wasn’t ready for Jacob Clark. He was sin and dark edges, wrapped in regret. He was my kryptonite. His words oozed over me like warm honey. His dark eyes pricked my soul, and his touch….those fingers set my skin on fire.
Of course, he was too good to be true. And before I could wipe the icing off my greedy lips, I was walking away.
So, why was he invading her dreams?

She was the remedy to everything. Until my family, my past provoked me.
I made one little scene, and Sandra walked away without a word, despite our mind-blowing connection.
When I finally barged in on her life again, she told me she didn’t want me. I told her in her pretty face she did. She more than wanted me.
Remember the ache? When I’m with her, it goes away.
If she wants a chase, I’ll give her one.
Who knows? When I catch her, I might never let go.

Unable to believe what I’m seeing, I cover my mouth with both hands, silencing my gasp.
Jake doesn’t stumble for long. Both brothers are the same height, and even though Troy is bulkier, it’s obvious that Jake spends more time in the gym. Like in a slow-motion movie, I watch as Jake punches his brother in the stomach, causing him to double over. He takes a step forward, grabs him by the collar and shoves him into my mother’s cake. Troy doesn’t stay down

for long. He tackles Jake, twists him around until they both land on the cake, smashing it completely and breaking the small table that held it.
Mrs. Clark is screaming at Luke and Josh to stop them as the two brothers continue to wrestle on the floor. I almost want to offer Tracy some comfort as the tears start to roll down her cheeks, but Luke puts a protective arm around her and escorts her away from the room and the disaster that’s continuing to unfold.
Mrs. Clark’s screams and the resounding sound of the table crashing finally pulls me out of my trance. Unable to look anymore, I turn around and walk out of the dining room. I find my coat and purse and walk out of the house, grateful that I’ll never have to return or see Jacob Clark again.
As I walk to the van, I’m reminded that the universe always has to balance itself. Jacob Clark was too good to be true.

Review: I love discovering new authors. This is my first book by Evelyn Sola and it was really amazing. 

I love stories that are different from the norm and this one was definitely just that.

Its a story of an interracial couple, which is not what you'd see in the Harlequin romances that I tend to gravitate to.

At times I felt like I was reading a soap opera scrip. OMG the family drama on the Clark side. Totally in your face family feuding! And the reason for the feud is also soap opera worthy.

That's the best part of the book. I don't want to discount the characters, because Evelyn has created two fictional families you will love, and their friends too.  Not to mention some angsty goodness as Sandra and Jacob try to get started. Both have some issues that almost keep them apart which makes for great drama.

However as much as I love all of the drama etc and I love down to earth Sandra, and sometimes jerky Jacob. I wish Evelyn would have given them some common ground to being a couple. OMG I saw you across the room and fell instantly for you, doesn't work for me. Being hot and having hot sex does not equal love and marriage, nor does being beautiful/handsome.

And despite this, I kept on reading because I was in for the drama. So much drama and an awful lot of steamy goodness. Like these two never got out of bed!

I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book.
