Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway ~~ Crave Me by M. Robinson
LOUISA’S 5 STAR REVIEW
1st thing first…THIS BOOK IS LONG…many will be intimidated by that. But don’t be. Every word that is written is necessary. The story behind who Austin and Briggs are is needed.
Briggs has a tortured soul. She has been blaming herself for things that were beyond her control; these have led her to lead the life she many find wrong. Many will condemn her but she did what she had to do to survive.
Austin lives the life that everyone wants. He comes from a wealthy family, has 2 parents who work hard to give him a good life. He has friends (The good ‘ole boys) who have his back and Alex, the one girl who always will be his friend. But everything isn’t as it always what it seems. Austin has his own demons. And this book confronts them head on.
It’s raw, it real, it’s heartbreaking at times. I can honestly say at one point I was having (what I think were) heart palpitations. My heart stopped for a moment then began beating again…hard.
M. Robinson has taken a far too common reality and put it into this book. An upheaval of emotions will be felt. At times my heart was soaring for this couple and at other moments I wanted to die along with them as they hit the rock bottom of their relationship over and over again.
This story is about perseverance, love and the eternal need for friendship and forgiveness.
Don’t worry M. Robinson fans – there is plenty of the sexy, hot and steamy that we all have come to love from M. Robinson, but there is a serious side that she delves into head first with this book and the angst…it’s seriously off the charts in this book.
Another amazing installment of the Good Ole Boys from M Robinson. I look forward to more Good Ole Boys later this summer!
KERRY’S 5 STAR REVIEW
This is my favorite Good Ole Boys book yet! I felt every emotion during this read – we got a dose of what addiction can do to relationships but this is book will be the one that leads you into the deepest despair I have ever seen. This book left me raw, M Robinson doesn’t hold back at all. She has poured her soul into this. I was so consumed with Dylan’s story but this story has shown me a different kind of book from M. Robinson.
