Publisher's Summary

After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend's ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn't expect to be attracted to her friend's reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.

Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return...until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he'll never be able to satisfy.

Passion sizzles between the two lovers...but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.

    "ok but not great"

    An ok read but won't have you on the edge of your seat. I didn't connect with the characters and Jades voice was annoying.

    "This EASILY could have been one book!"

    This book is the first of 3. It easily could have been one book. Take out some of the sex and you have plenty of time to fit the story in. That being said, I am being very liberal with the use of the word "story." The 2 main characters fall "in love" in record time based on nothing more than their sexual chemistry. They honestly know nothing about one another. There is too much sex and not nearly enough character development. And both Jade and Talon are completely annoying. it makes you not care if they are able to work things out or not. Please do not waste your money.

    Story
    "Great Narration - Hated the Cliffhanger ending!!"
    If you could sum up Craving in three words, what would they be?

    Disturbing, Sad, Erotic


    What other book might you compare Craving to and why?

    Can't think of one that compares. The sadness of the tragedy and the hope that could be makes for a powerful story.


    What does Sebastian York and Neva Navarre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You truly felt the pain and ecstacy flowing from their lips.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Twisting Road to Recovery


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely HATE when these authors leave a story hanging like this one was left. It creates an unfinished feeling and after all we read for enjoyment and to leave some of our own life behind for a while. The stories should leave you with a feeling of fulfillment not one of loss and longing.

    I would not recommend this book to anyone. The sex scenes seemed forced and the ending was terrible. Ugh. What a waste of $10.

    Story
    "Would A Little Buildup Have Hurt?"

    The two main characters go from being total strangers who start off alternately ignoring each other or bickering. That lasts about 30 seconds. Then they are amazingly drawn to each other and can't stay out of each other's arms or bed. There is no time spent on getting to know the characters, understanding what their attraction is or why it is so all consuming. The fact that they hooked up so quickly made no sense. Nor did it make sense that they were evidently keeping the torrid affair from his sister/her best friend. She was either an idiot or in a coma. I kept reading because I wanted to know what happened to Talon when he was a boy. (Note: Isn't the hero's name "Talon Steel" completely over the top? And the author evidently blew through her entire imagination on that single name. The best she could come up with for his sister was Marge?)

    I kept at it until Jade landed a job, told her new employer who she was living with and then he gave her a file with her first case. Totally ridiculous at this point. That is when I looked ahead, saw there were several other books in the series, so god knows when the big secret would be revealed. And suddenly I didn't care enough to keep reading.

    The narrators do a good job of bringing really poor writing into some semblance of real life. But they couldn't save this stinker

    This book was not bad but not great. Hey at least let me have the big O when you have one. She was falling In love and tooooo understanding for me. Talon had some dark secrets that are hard for anyone with a heart. I say if you can handle the heat, this kitchen is for you😳😳😳

    "Interesting, disturbing yet erotic....."

    This book is very interesting although I wish that it wouldn't given you more in the ending.... However there was some closure and some of the answers were given, you don't get the whole aspect from Talin's point of view. This book was beautifully written and executed and as always, the narrators did a phenomenal job. ...i just have more questions and some of the answers weren't given.

    Would you try another book from Helen Hardt and/or Sebastian York and Neva Navarre ?

    One of those, sold by the chapters, series. Ugh.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Helen Hardt again?

    No, too expensive! Almost $30 without credits and even $15 is too much for by the chapters series, Ugh! I'll check the library in order to get to the ending,


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sebastian York and Neva Navarre ’s performances?

    Depends on the book's author.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Craving?

    By the chapter series... No!

    "I DIDN'T EXPECT ALL THAT I GOT FROM THIS BOOK!!!"

    Wow! Maybe I didn't read the reviews or the trailer fully on this one, but, I did not expect it to be nearly as sexy and mysterious as it was. I loved it! On the surface, Tallon seems to be a troubled man finally meeting his match in Jade, but, the who, what, and why of the past is obscured just enough to keep you hanging on waiting for the full picture. Parts of this story are very dark, but the love that threatens to blossom makes every minute of it worth the time and suspense. My only criticism is the female narrator, she was decent but some of the attempts to change character voices were a stretch. Overall, I can't wait to dig into book 2. Definitely credit worthy!

    Warning this is the first part of a continuing story - I was disappointed that it didn't have an ending at all. Story not the usual standard from Helen.

    "Raunchy with a good story"

    Very racy and sexy.
    However, I found the sections about child abuse a little distressing and found it a little distasteful in an erotic book - didn't seem right. I probably wouldn't have bought it if I had realised.
    The story however was very good and I was compelled to listen on.
    Very explicit and maybe a few too many sex scenes for me.
