Everything feels off―especially me. I’ve returned to Katmere Academy, but I’m haunted by fragments of days I have no recollection of living and struggling to understand who, or what, I really am.
Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.
The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.
And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake―unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice.
Maybe more than I’m able to give.
THIS BOOK Y’ALL. The Crave series is my new guilty pleasure. The writing can be a bit juvenile and the plot is not the most original, but I DON’T CARE I LOVE IT! Crush takes the cheese, drama, and angst I loved about Crave to the next level. I love the way Tracy Wolff employs a lot of common tropes and cliches that I normally can’t stand in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way that makes these books purely entertaining rather than grating. Any author who can inspire me to buy a t-shirt declaring my team in a love triangle has written something special.
I appreciated the expansion of the world and the paranormal lore, which is something I wanted more of in book 1. All of the supporting characters were strong and lovable. I had no idea where this story was going, especially since the book begins with Grace waking up with amnesia, but I loved every minute of this ride.
This story had so many twists and turns. While some were predictable, others led to jaw-dropping moments. This book is addicting, bingeable, and so much fun. This is totally an emotional 5-star book for me, and if you disagree you can fight me.
