What a journey Ravenous was. My emotions were all over the map. There were points where I was so frustrated; I almost threw my kindle across the room. All the biggest issues in this book would have been solved if the characters talked to one another. But I guess just like real life, we all suffer this problem. This is what makes these characters so real. The author fleshed out her characters to the point that to me, in places it was as if I were an unwanted voyeur. The heartache and pain in Ravenous made my mind race and my heart bleed.
Raven, Brecken and Porter, all broken people in one way or another and each is struggling through life, surviving, but not really living.
Raven is an independent 21 year old. In college and working to support her little sister Chrissy, when one day her best friend Emma tells her she has started a new job as an Escort. Seeing how much money she could earn, Raven signs up and this is how she meets the identical twins Porter and Brecken; but more importantly where the story becomes intense and riveting.
“Never in my life had I felt an electric current just seeing a woman until her, and I couldn’t show that to her”
“For the first time, I wondered what it would be like to pay someone for a night of their time. Because I wanted to have her”.
Ravenous is the type of book that leaves you torn; Indecisive about where you want Raven to go and which brother to end up with.
“My throat dried out and my heart thumped in my chest, ‘I know the feeling. I was thinking of you…and your brother…just moments before you appeared behind me.’ I didn’t know how to respond to him, so I chose to stay quiet.”
As the story progresses more and more is thrown at Raven both in her personal and her love life, it becomes very apparent that she is truly torn between which brother to choose.
“You’ll remember that you can’t want both of them. You need to want neither of them”.
“I just know I’m not good enough for you”.
Raven sees herself as a girl from the wrong side of the tracks and that she isn’t worthy of being coveted and treasured by a “real, true and decent man”.
It broke my heart that she truly just saw herself as the daughter of a drug addict who deserved no more than she had and that men like Porter and Brecken could never really love her for her, if they knew the cold harsh truth of her upbringing, and how she had had to fight tooth and nail to get where she was.
“Her eyes widened, and she worked her lip with her teeth again. ‘I’m not a forever kind of girl.’ It was like someone had sucker-punched me in the gut at her soft words. This woman thought little to nothing of herself.”
“How do you read my mind?
Don’t you see yet? I see you, Raven”.
Raven is driven by the need to protect her little sister, to give her the kind of life she never had at her age. Fed. Safe. Loved. All the things any child shouldn’t have to ask for; the basics ANY parent should tear themselves up to provide.
The emotions in Ravenous were palpable; the lows were so low at times I almost forgot to breathe. Toing and throwing back and forth until the very end.
“Because the heart doesn’t have a timeline. Is there supposed to be some sort of schedule to falling in love? I don’t think so. Some people wait a lifetime to find this, and others feel it the first time they meet the person that’s meant for them.”
“For a girl who was never shown love by the people that were supposed to model the selfless emotion, Raven just offered me her entire heart without abandon”.
I knew where my heart wanted Raven to end up. And, with any really good book, you just are never sure until at least the last 10% or so, how it will all unfold. I’m super impressed with how the author dealt with some of the taboo topics in Ravenous. I have never read this author before this, but I’ll certainly be making sure from now on to watch for any future releases. Which leads me to point out; there will be a sequel to Ravenous…Insatiable is coming out this summer and is about the other Kingsley twin…I cannot wait to watch that one unfold. I have no doubt it’ll be another equally scintillating and satisfying train wreck!

Raven has had a rough upbringing, so she's doing everything she can to better her life and help get her sister out of the life she's in now, so when she's offered a job that can help get her the money she needs to help her younger sister Chrissy get out of her mom's care sooner rather than later, she's hesitant, but ultimately takes the job. When her first date ends up being with Porter Kingsley, the sexy surgeon she hits the jackpot, but she didn't realize his sexy twin brother Breck saw her and wants her too. This leads to an interesting story and Raven figuring out who she is and what she ultimately wants in life.
I loved watching Raven trying to figure out what she really wanted, and trying to figure out why she should stay away from the Kingsley brother's. One was the go to have fun with no strings attached buy, and the other was the "forever guy". She in her heart knew which one she wanted, but her head and her heart couldn't ever get on the same page, and this brought a lot of angst in this book. Trust me, at times you will want to throw your Kindle across the room for getting so frustrated with her. Not only is she going back and forth with these two guys, which I will say she isn't even seeing, she just can't get them out of her head, but she's dealing with her sister, and trying to be a good role-model for her, and trying to get through school. Raven is more grown up then most grown ups I know in real life. Her life isn't easy, and throw in trying to have a love life, and her life is crazy!
For being the youngest of the three main characters in this book, Raven to me was the most mature of all of them. She thinks things through and is always thinking of how her decisions are going to affect her and her sister. She puts Chrissy first in all of her decisions, where Breck and Porter hold resentment towards each other but don't talk to each other about it, and act as if everything is fine. They are both amazing men in their own right, but children at the same time. I did have my favorite of the two guys, but I won't say which, because I want you, the reader, to pick your favorite, and also because the other brother is getting his own book this summer, so I hope he ends up becoming more likeable in that book as well.
This book was a great story, but I felt as if we had so much build up to Raven finally figuring out what she wanted, and then BOOM it was over. I wish we could have had more of what it was like seeing her make that decision, and seeing her get her HEA, after seeing all of the struggles it took for her to get there. I loved how much her character grew in this book as well as how much all of the characters grew. It sucked seeing Emma's character sort of disappear in this book though since she was a huge part in the beginning of this story. I really enjoyed how this story progressed and the characters in this book. If you're looking for a unique romance to curl up with I highly suggest picking up Ravenous today!
When the story unfolds you learn Raven's motivation to do what she decides to, and how could you not love her for it; especially since she's lived through so much for someone so young. The money is great, and is more than she could've ever imagined making. It is also helping her get closer to her goal. I'm sure when she started this venture she wasn't expecting to like it, let alone fall in love. And with two men nonetheless.
Raven has always had to make her own decisions, but this is one that she preferred not to touch. But knowing she had no choice, she finally decides who she wants, and I couldn't agree with her more. Don't get me wrong both guys were gorgeous and sexy in the own ways, but I loved who she chose more than the other.
Seeing Raven get everything out of life that she deserved was great to read. She was given a crappy situation at the beginning stages of her life, but she had the ability to persevere. Gotta love that in a girl.
Overall, I would classify this as a definite must read. It grabs you from the very beginning as does not let you go until you read "The End". It'll have you in such a reading trance that you'll finish this in one sitting. It is worth the time it'll take you to read it so do yourself the favor and invest your time. You will not regret it.
"A professional at pretending," Janie had to train herself to be "confident, sexy, and always in control." With no father and a mother that could care less, she knew all too well what see needed to do to accomplish her goals. Attaching her heart was never the plan. See how "Ravenous" her heart and body become as she is sought out by a set of identical twins; each wanting her for different reasons!
Missy - reviewer for Mommy's Naughty Playground
This book has all the FEELS!! You've got a bit of mystery in the characters, there's angst, and there's hot sexy bits that will leave you breathless.
Raven, Breck and Porter will have you hooked and as LL words flow you will fall in love. Highly recommended.
