Our review request pile is currently closer to a mountain, and we're kind of afraid it's going to fall on our heads and bury us all in a massive book avalanche. Until we can get through the majority of the TBR list we have right now, we at MKR are currently unable to accept any new review requests.

Review: Crave Me by Crystal Jordan

*Crave Me is part of the Prowl the Night duology. My review of Want me, the other part of the duology is forthcoming.

Crave Me starts off really hot. They’re in the middle of mating (panther shifters) but at the same time it’s really sad because he’s thinking the whole time about how he feels very distant from his mate. In panther society, not everyone finds their mate (or has one) so the fact that they found each other is pretty special. But he’s heir to the leadership of the pride in South America. He’s temporarily the second in command in the North American Pride based in San Fran… I’m not entirely clear how the second system works. Even though it was explained, it confused me a little bit.

Anyway. They love each other very much but they’re so different. She’s a traditionalist, he’s progressive. She’s Japanese, he’s Brazilian. She’s into art, he’s into politics. Things worked before he had to step up and be second in command of the North American Pride and now she feels that politics have taken over their lives. The main problem (for her) is that she has been taken out of her culture and thrust into another one where she doesn’t fit in. There’s a huge disconnect between them. He doesn’t have time to spend with her because he’s working all the time, and I completely understand where she’s coming from. On the other hand, as someone who has to work for a living (and enjoys doing so), I understand where he’s coming from too. He has to do these things to make sure that everything goes smoothly for his father’s reign, and later his. No one will respect him if he just tosses his duties aside, even if it is for his mate.

So, Crave Me is about them overcoming their issues to be together. There’s a LOT of mating involved in the novella, because of the way their genetics are – if they find their mate and they don’t bone a lot, they will literally go insane. But they have to work through their issues or they won’t have a successful  mating.

I really enjoyed seeing them work through their problems to find their way back to each other.
