4 “I was alone” stars!
Austin, Austin, Austin….I tried really hard to like you throughout this whole story, but you made it so hard!! This angsty read made me crazy!! One minute I wanted to scream and the next I wanted to cry. Crave Me will take you on a roller coaster ride of feelings starting at page one.
“I wanted to save him.”
Austin’s story is part of the Good Ol’ Boys series and honestly I wasn’t too excited about his story, but knew I had to finish up the series since I loved all the others so much. It’s not because I didn’t like him, I just didn’t know enough about him to get excited for his story. But Austin grew on me, even if it took me a LONG while. He does mean well, but man I wanted to ring his neck!
“She was like a diamond, smooth but with sharp edges.”
Then Briggs, AKA Daisy, I had very mixed feelings on her. She is a sweetheart, but, just like Austin, she made some terrible decisions. In the defense of both Austin and Briggs, they had issues. Briggs’ were way more complicated, though. Every darn time I thought the two were heading towards a HEA, the damn rug would get pulled out from under them again…most of the time by Austin! This would be why the story made me so crazy!!!! There were even a few tears, people!!! Yes, one scene really got to me and the tears fell.
“You should stay away from me, Austin. I’m no good for you. This will only end badly…It always does.”
But, honestly, it took me a bit to get sucked in to this story. The beginning starts with a bang and I was like HOLY CRAP!! But then we had to go back to get the backstory and that was where I lost interest a tad. Not all the writers fault, though. I was busy and there just wasn’t enough going on to grab me at the time. But after a few chapters I was all in and finished the second half of the story in a few hours.
“There wasn’t a chance in hell that I was ever going to let her go. I loved her too fucking much.”
The whole gang is included in this story just like the others and it was a tad sad at the end knowing I am all done with the Good Ol’ Boys. But O-M-G, that ending!!! What in the world is that about?!?! I am sad to see the boys go, but will be anxiously awaiting what is coming next, after that ending. Happy Reading!!
