Review: Crave Me by Cecy Robson

It’s time for the sole sister in the family to discover love.

O'Brien Family #3
Cecy Robson
Releasing Feb 28, 2017

Wren O’Brien isn’t your typical female. As the only girl from a loud Irish family with seven siblings, she prefers fast cars to lip gloss and bad boys to good men. It’s the reason she’s nursing a wounded soul and keeping her distance from a dangerous ex.

Evan Jonah is running an empire and just moved from the lavish thoroughfares of London to the gritty streets of Philadelphia. When he walks into the nearest dealership, he’s expecting to find a reliable vehicle to handle the brutal winters, not a sexy female car rep with killer legs.

Wren doesn’t know why “Hotness in a Suit” asked her out. She doesn’t expect a great time or a night of passion that knocks her on her ass. But that’s exactly what Evan shows her.

She also never counted on how hard and fast she’d fall. But men like Evan—good men with even better hearts—don’t desire tough-talking Philly girls for long.

Evan has never met a woman like Wren. But he’s up for the challenge and ready to prove her wrong.

Wren O’Brien is the only girl in a loud, Irish family of seven siblings.  She’s smart, strong and confident, but she’s also survived an abusive relationship and the same ex is somewhat stalking her.
Evan Jonah is the CEO of a robotics and technology manufacturing company on the verge of bankruptcy, a man working really hard to keep his father’s legacy alive and his company afloat.
When these two meet, the attraction is immediate and, though he’s a gentleman and she tries at all costs to keep it professional, she’ll finally accept a dinner invitation after several failed attempts on his part and they’ll have a night either one wants to forget.
This is my first read by the author and I have to say I was nicely surprised.  I liked the chemistry between the main characters and the fact that their insta-lust doesn’t turn into insta-love and there’s a relationship build up.  Both Wren and Evan are confident and strong in their own right and I really enjoyed how they handled the shady characters surrounding them and each other.  I also liked the fact that I could get a feel of the previous stories of the series from the insight into Wren’s family provided across the book, but felt some things brought up front about the people working for Evan were left hanging without providing additional details.
In all, Crave Me was a nicely paced and engaging book that intrigued me enough to want to read more of the series.
