Crave (Undone #1) by Jennifer Dawson **Review**




I vow. I crave. I give in.

I used to be a nice, normal girl. I had dreams. Good, happy dreams of a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and a fairytale love that lasts forever. Nobody ever warned me that sometimes, the prince dies three weeks before the wedding. 

Like any addict, I swear this time is the last…. 

Now, I go through my days, a shadow of my former self. I pretend I’m okay, and the people in my life pretend to believe me. But, sometimes, when I can no longer stand the craving, I roam an underground sex club looking for my next hit. It’s dirty and wrong, but I can’t stop, and my only line of defense between them and me, is the rules I’ve designed to keep me safe. The men always abide by my rules. Until I meet him. 

And, like any addict, I’m wrong.

I don’t question the instincts that tell me to run. One look at him, standing there, power radiating off him in waves, tells me all I need to know. He will make me crave those happy dreams I’ve left behind. And that is not an option.

Layla Hunter is a lonely woman, hiding from every person in her life, isolating herself for the past 18 months, drowning in grief, since she lost her fiance two weeks before their wedding. Knowing that she won't be able to sleep because of her nightmares, she's visiting an underground club, suitable for her cravings.

One night she meets him. The man who could give to her what she really needs. But she has rules and Michael is not the type to follow them. He's danger and she needs to stay away from him.

Layla is also visiting a therapist, trying to overcome her situation and her depression. Her therapist is the only one who knows completely what happened that fatal night , her fears and the only one who knows Layla's secret sexual side.

"I need dominance. Need to be controlled and forced. But sitting at some guy's feet, serenely staring into space as I wait for my next order is never going to be my thing."


Crave was a book that surprised me quite pleasantly. I was intrigued by the sexy cover and the blurb, but I wasn't prepared for the story within. I expected that it would be just a hot read, but it was so much more than that. I loved the characters, even though there were moments that I would roll my eyes or disagree with their actions, but bottom line, I really enjoyed it.


Even though at first, I was bummed, thinking that it would be another insta-love story that would get on my nerves, I have to admit that the writing helped a lot and I loved how funny, sexy, deep and emotional this book was. I liked the character development our heroine went through, the slow, but steady steps towards healing her trauma. It wasn't easy and it was a rocky road for sure, but there was progress and I enjoyed the ride. Plus the ending was so beautiful.
