    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    "About the same as Covet was..."

    It is about the same quality as Covet. It is not bad - but certainly is not the Black Dagger Brotherhood stories, not even close (and if you haven't read them, go get them now, all of them.)

    There is some sex, but it's kind of short and has little tension/build-up and is more ho-hum than thrilling.

    The story is wrapped up independently, but the characters are the same and there is little recapping so you probably should read them in order. The narrator seems to distinguish the male characters better in this book than he did in Covet.

    I'm not sure if I'll read the next in the series or not - it's so close to bordering on average that the price of the audiobook when it comes out will probably be the deciding factor, more so than the story itself.

    Looking for similar stories? Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress books are similar. Moning's Fever series is good too, but involves dark fairies instead of vampires.

    "Great Listen"

    This narrator is Dynamite! I read the first one, Covet, and liked it, but I listened to Crave and loved it.

    Story
    "Am I missing something?"
    What disappointed you about Crave?

    The author allows the male characters to speak in this annoying way with slang used every other word. Instead of sounding tough, they usually sound like a bunch of posing teenagers. She also doesn't seem to care much for women which is weird being that she is one. The female characters with few exceptions seem weak or just props for the men to screw. I can't remember the last time I heard the word "bitch" so many times. Wait, it was probably in the first book Covet.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I did not care about what happened. I didn't care about the couple (mostly because I hated the way the female lead was written), and I did not care whether soul #2 was saved or not. That can't be a good sign.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine.


    What character would you cut from Crave?

    Wow, that's just too hard. The cutting room floor would be littered.


    Any additional comments?

    I really want to continue this series because I like the premise, and the main character Jim, but the author's style of writing may be too much for me to move past it. I know this author has legions of fans from the Brotherhood series, but unfortunately I just don't get it.

    I'm an audio book junky! And an avid reader! I love books mostly paranormal fantasy romance, and books that are hot and steamy and fun

    "Another smash hit!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is an amazing listen! It's like a warm blanket in front of the fire in the middle of winter amazing!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved all the characters even the ones I loved to hate! They all have something that make this book and series what it is supposed to be, without them it wouldn't be what it is!


    What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the characters to life in a way that I have never experienced before!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sinning has never looked so good, redemption has never been so sexy!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to finish this series, yet never want it to end!

    "Another Fabulous JR Ward Series!"

    Anyone who loves JR Ward's BDB series will also fall for these angels. I think this one might be even better than the first.

    "Great Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Crave the most enjoyable?

    J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.
