I said I’d never love another man again. I had no idea I would soon fall in love with four of them.
I, Skye Bellamy, escaped to this little mountain town to start anew. To focus. It was supposed to be easy, because If there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s reinvent myself.
But a series of unfortunate events lands me right next to my favorite R&B boy band from back in the day. And they still look good.
Angelo’s the cocky one. Jamal is the strong, silent one. G is the gorgeous, sensitive one. And Matt, well, Matt’s not on my radar and for good reason.
But I’m already on theirs.
I’m supposed to be working and they’re supposed to be rehearsing but temptation abounds and I soon find myself in their clutches…or maybe they’re in mine. It’s hard to say. But no matter how happy we are with our little arrangement, we’re all hiding something and it’s only a matter of time before it all blows up in our faces. But in the meantime…
***This is book 1 in the Crave Series. Crave is a reverse harem romance, which means the heroine doesn’t have to choose; she can have any or all of the guys she wants. Sometimes at the same time. There is no cliff-hanger but this is the first in series so the story continues in the next installment.
“Can a black girl do it?” That was the overarching theme of this book and it was bomb. I’ve never gotten a book of this nature with a black woman at it’s core, which was the whole point of the story within the story. I love that Shae wrote this. This book showed that it’s okay to put your happiness first, no matter what society says is acceptable. Each character had reasons to both love and hate them, and that’s what made me love the story all together. While this does leave you with many unanswered questions, anyone reading this review is lucky, because part 2 is already available. I’ve been wanting to read Shae’s work for quite a while and I must say I wasn’t disappointed. Looking forward to reading more of her work.
