If you could sum up Craving in three words, what would they be?
Sexiest Vampire Ever.
What other book might you compare Craving to and why?
Obviously there's the Twilight comparison. This was so original and fresh and filled with characters that truly capture the reader. The book sets up a larger story arc without making the reader feel cheated into a cliffhanger... Remy is an amazing character - fabulous and funny and flawed. The interplay between the two lead characters is infectious.
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene when Remy makes a confession to Beanie was fantastic. Summers writes great dialogue and the scene was really well played. Love how the narrator brought the scene to life. It was intense and arresting and really sexy.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I loved it. I imagined it would be just a retread of True Blood or Twilight...but the premise struck me as totally original and the character development is great. Remy is flat out a fabulous literary character. The fact that he has a sexy British accent is just icing on the cake.
Any additional comments?
I hope the others in the series are released soon... i'm hooked. The book is classified as erotica - but I thought that was kind of misleading and might deter some people. There is some steamy sex...but what makes this book work is the skill of the writing and the originality of the characters. It's smart and romantic and funny.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely... I think this book is only made even more enjoyable by the performance of the narrator. The way he voices Remy is fabulous... sexy, smart and really sarcastic. He brings out all the humor in these characters - which is really a bonus.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I'd be insane if I didn't say Remy, the bad-boy British vampire who's forced to move to Willow Creek by his maker. Remy is dry and droll and full of wit... but under it all he is really a vulnerable character with a great backstory. He's a beautifully drawn anti-hero. And he's sexy as hell.
Have you listened to any of Joel Froomkin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is my first... I'll look out for more. He's lively and really commits to the performance. It's not just someone 'reading' - which I love. It's an added dimension to enjoying the material.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There is a dream sequence that was sensual and romantic and pretty amazing.
Any additional comments?
So happy I found this series... I devoured Twilight, and I actually really find these characters more engaging. There is nothing helpless about Sabine - she's a great foil for Remy and they it's totally engaging when the sparks fly between them. I'm a fan.

I was gifted this audiobook by the author. I have read the story a few times and absolutely love it.
Listening to the story has bought this story to life much much more.
Remy is a vampire forced to stay in one town for the foreseeable future.
Sabine is to be a Remy's girl who he is to feed off.
The two of them hate each other and the thought of having to spend the rest of Sabines life together is not something both of them planned
The narrator really does bring each and every character to life making you apart of the story.
Thanks so much for allowing me to hear this story and bring it to life after reading it.
