Book Review: Crave

craveCrave is about a reporter, Harper, who is trying to figure out where a local girl disappeared to.  She is a workaholic and doesn’t even have time to grocery shop.  While she is trying to figure out what happened to the missing girl, she is asked by a friend at work to cover a local band’s concert. The band is called Crave. When she sees a news story on the TV that the missing girl may have been on her way to their concert before her disappearance, she thinks that the band may have some sort of insight as to why she disappeared.

The lead singer seems to have some attraction to Harper, and Harper seems to be attracted to him.  But weird things are happening – when she goes to leave the show and go back to her car, she is attacked by what appears to be wolves. The lead singer, Cass, has eyes that turn red when he confronts them.  While Harper has thought she has seen it all – this is certainly something new to her.  Just what is she getting herself in to?

I have to say that I liked the paranormal aspect to this book – although almost right away when she heard the growling I had a feeling I knew what we were in to.  This story was short and I really like that – if I can read it in a couple of hours that’s awesome.  I wasn’t particularly a fan of the ending at first – if the book ended just maybe a couple of paragraphs sooner, I’d have liked that much better.  However, after doing a bit of research it appears that there will be an additional book coming out relating to this first book – so now it makes sense, it was setting everything up for the sequel.  And of course I loved the fact that the whole story revolved around a band!

About the Book

As a reporter for the Wakefield Post, Harper Erkstine has seen everything. From murders to robberies, all of her recent stories have ended with tragic consequences so great, that she began to question if she made the right career choice for herself.

While all of her friends were dating, or going to clubs, she was winning journalism awards for covering the latest drive-by shooting or a home invasion that cost someone she knew, their lives.

She loved her job, it was rewarding to be a crime solver and get to the truth of the matter. As much as she loved her job, but the hours of a Metro beat reporter began to descend her into burn out mode.

She craved balance. A break, a welcome distraction every now and then. She forgot what it was like to have fun, to take a breath, smell the roses.

Was it wrong to want a great career and to have some kind of a personal life? She couldn’t remember the last time she had a date or danced with someone from the opposite sex.

In the middle of working on a missing person’s story that has rocked her town to the core, Harper decides as a favor to her friend and colleague to do a feature on local an up and coming rock band, called ‘Crave.’

It was a break from her routine, but Harper soon discovers that this band may have ties to the missing person, not only does she question why, but she also finds there is more to this band than just their music?
