Reads and Thoughts

Ola! I'm one of those crazy girls who is overly addictive to books and reading. I'm weird around books and tends to read them abnormally fast. And I'm a hopeful romantic who is a firm believer of Happily Ever Afters.
Crave - Monica  Murphy Well, it was okay. As I'm typing this, I'm doing my best to think of words that could best describe me while reading this - well first, I was excited then curios, irritated, irritated, a down swooned moment then flat line until the end.

It started good for me. I was honestly excited for this one since Monica Murphy is one of my most awaited and favorite author so grabbing this next new series' of hers was a definite excitement for me. Another thing that gets me excited about it is the plot that revolved around 'my-best friend's-sister' kind of drift. Next to 'friends turn into lovers' and I have a weird a thing for stories that goes along the line of that, so you really cant blame me if I get all excited right? So that feeling went on until I came to the point where it feels like I’ve read the same entire thing or banter on the other contemporary books with the same storyline, but I was still hanging on that maybe something new would still come out – but no nada. It was too predictable for my taste and I can’t help but feel like the story was a complete flat land with no bumps - high or low. Simply a flat deserted place.

Ivy and Archer are okay characters but unfortunately I can't find this connection with them. Their stubbornness and epic miscommunications that goes back and forth was tiring and just too much. But one thing I know for sure is that these two have an undeniable chemistry – chemistry that you would really feel sizzling as a reader.

Crave has this spark that most readers look for and their is definitely fire what with the characters sizzling chemistry but it lacks the fireworks that I was expecting when the end came – also like I was left midair without a parachute flopping down the land face front. Well, at least the ending was happy(which is already given from the start). The chemistry got me but the characters' individual personalities and the whole story didn't quite make it up to me.
