Crave by JC Emery (Review)

Title: Crave
Series: Bayonet Scars #5.5
Author: JC Emery
Released: November 1, 2015 - Left Break Press
Pages: 79 Pages per Amazon
Format: Ebook received for review


Elle Phillips’s relationship with the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is strained, much like the relationship she had with her father, a Forsaken brother, before he died. The only piece of Forsaken that Elle wants to hold onto is their sergeant-at-arms and her former lover, Sterling “Bloody Knuckles” Grady. Unfortunately, Grady’s moved on and he doesn’t seem to be coming back. With her heart hurting over one man who’s died and another who’s practically dead to her, Elle throws herself into her work as a private investigator and tries to keep a low profile where the club’s concerned. But when a case comes along that she can’t refuse, she finds herself embroiled in club business in a way that leaves her questioning everything she thought she knew about Forsaken.

Diesel knows that keeping tabs on Elle Phillips is going to bring him trouble. He already loves her even though he barely knows her, but when Grady asks Diesel to keep her safe, he can’t say no. His patience has run out and he’s going to do anything to get Elle to realize he’s the man she’s been craving— even going behind the club’s back to help her solve a case she shouldn’t be working.

Real love is always the cure.

I love the Forsaken MC!  I know I have said it before haha.  JC Emery really has developed a terrific series here, with characters that I really care about.  I think that is quite an accomplishment, to create something that the readers (and definitely not just me!) connect with.

Crave is really short.  It's just a glimpse into the mc life.  Specifically that of Elle, who works as a bounty hunter.  Elle is also the ex of Grady, who has since moved on to Holly (no chance of that breaking up any time soon!) and so she is dealing with a bit of a broken heart.  But even through that, she is able to see Diesel for who and what he was, and I love that she is open to giving him that opportunity to get into her heart.  As for Elle herself, she is Native American.  She's a tall and strong woman, and I absolutely love that she is not portrayed as a cute little pixie of a woman... or even a curvy woman.  I love that Emery branches out women past these two stereo types that we mostly read about.

As for Diesel... well, he's a biker, for one.  He's hot and sexy, and very protective of Elle.  Everything just clicks for them, and I feel like they are a good match.

The storyline moves pretty quick, it's less than 80 pages.  But in that 80 pages, you get a great big glimpse in Elle and what makes her tick.  You get some shoot-out excitement.  Oh, and there is some drawer-dropping heat!!  Hahaha, I knew you'd like the sound of that.  The whole book is great, and I'm glad I got the opportunity to read it.  If you haven't gotten into this series yet, I am telling you to do it.  Emery tackles some sensitive topics from time to time, and it only makes the series even more great.

As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.
