Crave by Shanora Williams Review

4 Smooches


Every Sunday morning it’s just us in a fancy hotel suite.
We fight, argue, and make up like teenagers do.
We touch, we suck, but we don’t kiss.
No, we never kiss.

His lips have been all over my body – everywhere but on top of mine.
I wasn’t supposed to need his touch.
To beg for a kiss…just one little kiss.
But our little arrangement has swallowed me whole.

I only crave one thing, but I know he’ll never give it to me.
Because the only way he’ll ever kiss a woman on the lips is if he loves her.
And my playboy boss–a man who is promised to another woman–will never love me.


Jenna is fucking her boss. There’s no other way to put it. They have an arrangement for every Sunday but things are starting to get complicated. She is having feelings for the dominant, handsome Jude but she knows she can’t do anything about it. He has to marry the women his parents picked for him or he could lose all he’s worked for. But will Jude let his parents dictate his life all the way to the altar or will he finally give in to the craving, desire, passion and feelings he has for Jenna?

“He would be upset if I stayed longer than I was supposed to. He’d established rules and I was going to follow them. This was best for him and me, especially for me because I was already wanting more. Needing more.”

I found it really hard to rate this book at first because it was such a short story with a very quick development of a connection between the two characters but then I remembered this is the whole point of this book and if you are looking for a quick, hot, steamy, romance read then this hits the spot directly!

“All we are doing is fucking, Jenna. We don’t get to like each other. We don’t get to let ourselves sink too deep, so whatever you think you heard me say, you are sadly mistaken.”

As is the case with novellas the characters aren’t as developed as full length stories however I could fell Jenna’s heartache and frustration when it came to Jude. How deep her feelings went and how much it hurt not to be able to be with him. Jude was very clearly a dominant and a sexy one at that. But you could also feel his struggle and that the woman he really wanted was Jenna.

“He always knew how to make me feel dirty. He knew exactly what I wanted—what I needed. It was always him. Having him so deep inside me I couldn’t think straight.”

A very steamy, sexy, intense erotica romance plot. Despite the short length it has enough happening that it kept me interested. We have a…well basically a bitch fake girlfriend that Jude is being forced to marry and a mean mother! And of course we have the question as to whether Jude will give in to his real feelings for Jenna and finally make her his woman and of course whether Jenna will keep holding on despite the fact she keeps getting hurt! Overall a very good little novella with some very hot scenes- perfect for a quick scorching read!
