It was a great book!

What did you like about this audiobook?

It's a great listen altogether. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. The one thing I don't like is that AUDIBLE ONLY HAS BOOK ONE! There are 5 books or more in this series! The only thing I don't like is tI at Audible gives us the first in the series and none of the rest. I would have really liked to move seamlessly to the following books :( lol

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

It's not that kind of book but I do enjoy these fun kind of paranormal books :)

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

You can tell that the author is a bit new in the first book but it's written very well anyways. I'm sure the author will just keep on improving too!

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

I actually liked the narrator and that is really saying something because I'm very very picky about narrators. I enjoyed this narrator even though the voices she has sound somewhat similar at times. I also think she can improve too. I hope she narrates the future books.

Do you have any additional comments?

Worth a credit for sure. There's a world where "otherworldly" creatures (vamps, witches, werewolfs and some hybrids) live amongst humans. Theres romance, the paranormal, great characters and it's just a really great book. I might have to just buy book 2 on my Kindle :)

I couldn't put it down

I was surprised that this book was so good. The world that Stephanie Nelson created was unique and believable. The characters were well developed and realistic. The pace was fast and engaging. I haven't liked a new series this much in a while. I highly recommend this book.

Good Book, but like other books

If you could sum up Craved in three words, what would they be?

Good YA Book

Any additional comments?

I think the only problem with this is she should have been bonded to her boy friend not the bad vampire. If she fed her boy friend to save another witch and then goes to get help with addiction and has to suck his blood , she should have bonded with him. There are certain aspects if you are paying attention that should not be.

Meh

Who even thinks about sex knowing their best friend just went off with the murderer?! Even the sex scenes were poorly written and badly placed within the plot.

Too many inconsistencies

This book wasn't bad. "Did they have the same experience I experienced?" pretty much sums up the mediocre writing. It wasn't so bad that I stopped listening but she should fire her editor.

The plot inconsistencies were what really bothered me. Obviously, vampires and witches would have known about the affect witches blood has on vampires for millennia. It's not like in all of history a vampire never once fed on a witch until a couple years ago. It would have more sense for there to have been a war fought long ago that ended in a bloody stalemate and both parties decided to outlaw drinking from witches. Otherwise, you'd have vampires accidentally draining their new GF/BF because they didn't know they'd instantly become addicted to their blood.

Another reviewer pointed out something I missed. Gwen drank Aiden's blood before she drank Ian's. She should have been bonded to him or the author should have come up with a reason for why they weren't bonded.

Gwen's lack of control when it comes to men is offputting. She's supposedly in love with Aiden but makes out with two other guys anyway. Basically anything turns her on to a point where she loses all reason. The sex/kissing happened in really weird moments. We just found a warehouse where women could potentially be dying, makeout session! We're staking out a potential murderers house, let's do the dirty! They just didn't make any sense.

The narrator was decent. Nothing spectacular.

There's more that bugged me about Craved but this review is getting long. It's worth a listen with the escape package but not worth a credit. I think the author has potential and maybe the series improves but I'm not willing to spend credits to find out.

A bit different witch and vampire book

Vampires have found that by drinking witches and warlocks dry they can steal their magical powers. Gwen is a rare spirit walker in the world of witches and is a strong magic user. She has three men interested in her. Micah who is a type of magic enforcer. Aiden is a vampire who loves her for herself. Ian is a vampire who wants to control her for her powers. She and Aiden are lovers and want to be together. Ian is doing all he can to own her.

Too explicit four my taste.

Stephanie Nelson did a great job with her story telling. And in truth was the reason I listened to the story to the end.
The graphic and very explicit sexual scenes were not needed and there ere far to many of them. so yes it was difficult for me to finish.
Still I realize that there is a market for these paranormal bodice ripper stories.
Again for me Too Much Information.
