review || CRAVE by JC Emery

Publisher | November 1, 2015 | MC Romance
Bayonet Scars, book 5.5



Elle Phillips’s relationship with the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is strained, much like the relationship she had with her father, a Forsaken brother, before he died. The only piece of Forsaken that Elle wants to hold onto is their sergeant-at-arms and her former lover, Sterling “Bloody Knuckles” Grady. Unfortunately, Grady’s moved on and he doesn’t seem to be coming back. With her heart hurting over one man who’s died and another who’s practically dead to her, Elle throws herself into her work as a private investigator and tries to keep a low profile where the club’s concerned. But when a case comes along that she can’t refuse, she finds herself embroiled in club business in a way that leaves her questioning everything she thought she knew about Forsaken.

Diesel knows that keeping tabs on Elle Phillips is going to bring him trouble. He already loves her even though he barely knows her, but when Grady asks Diesel to keep her safe, he can’t say no. His patience has run out and he’s going to do anything to get Elle to realize he’s the man she’s been craving— even going behind the club’s back to help her solve a case she shouldn’t be working.

Real love is always the cure.

As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.

As we get closer to the Mancuso downfall, we see Elle move on from her time with Grady. Elle was Grady's "in between", between his first old lady and Dawn and I can't really say that I understood that aspect in the previous books. For whatever reason, I went into this thinking Elle had been his first and that she was badly scorned by his moving on with Dawn. was easy to forget about Elle's time with Grady, though. Grady cared enough about Elle to push Diesel toward her, and while it started out as protection, I truly enjoyed watching Elle fall for him -- because he had already fallen for her.

This was a greatly written shorter book to the BAYONET SCARS series. I love seeing the brief moments of other characters, but what I love the most about Emery's shorter books is that there is more emphasis on the book's main couple.

There is, though, a ton of set up for Wyatt and Amber's book -- from the moments between Elle and Amber, and then Diesel learning things about Amber... I'm truly excited for that book -- probably the most excited I've been for any in this series.
