Kason and Adaline.

From the moment they met, they started to fall. Neither of them predicted just how far the drop would be, though.

Loving Adaline was all Kason had ever wanted to do. But layer by layer, he started to unravel, forcing Adaline to face an addiction she never could’ve imagined.

This is what happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond the loving.

First of all, let me start by saying...whoa. Blair has once again left me hanging by a tiny thread with her infamous endings that really aren't endings. I loved every second of this book. 

It was one of those kinda make you squirm because...well, just because. (I totally can't tell you without giving away what also makes it so freaking good!) The love story is one you may have heard a time or two--rich girl, poor boy, fall in love...yeah, no. Well, yes it's that but SO MUCH MORE. It's the depth of these people; their backgrounds, their lifestyle, current situations...their demons. 

So, here's a little info.

Kason is that boy. Adaline (Ady) is that girl. He's smart, a hard worker, and hiding something deep within himself that not even he understands. She's the lonely new girl with a work-a-holic mother and abandonment issues. Undeniably attracted to each other, Kason and Adaline wade through the Tampa-salty waters of relationship firsts, broken trust, and family drama while trying to find themselves beneath the surface of image and status. 

How could one not be intrigued? I wanted to know more from the very first sentence in the very first chapter, on the very first page. And I wanted to know even more as I read the last paragraph...knowing this was it. For now anyway...but it doesn't stop my over-active mind from speculating all the things that could happen in Part Two. I dread to think about it, yet it will keep me hungover until October when I'm finally put out of my misery.

Will it be mutual heartbreak once again, or will Kason and Ady see their relationship in a new way? Either way, nothing is the same. It hasn't been for some time...and it's about to change again. This time though, the damage may be irreversible.

Favorite quotes:

"I want this," he begs on an insistent breath. "And I know I have no right to ask this of you, but I want you. You're all I've ever wanted. My heart doesn't know how to beat without you." 


"I love you. Every piece of you. Even the ones you hate." 

So, now you HAVE to read Crave because you have to know this kind of love. A love so different, a little dark and jaded, but oh, so pure. It's truly an original and heartbreaking story that I hope you'll devour and CRAVE more of. I know I do.
