CRAVE by Dani René

CRAVE by Dani René 
Forbidden Series Book #1
Dark Romance
Can love overcome hate?

When I first laid eyes on the perfect little blonde, I didn’t think she’d change my life. 
But the first time I tasted her, felt her, took her, I knew she was mine. 
I laid a wordless claim because as much as I desired her, I couldn’t have her.

I craved the dark, she filled me with light.
I loved delivering pain, she craved it.

Opposites merged by circumstance.
Hearts melded by passion.

Can light defeat darkness?

I should have feared him. 
Everything about him was drenched in the darkness he exuded. 

But one glance into his cobalt eyes, and I knew I was his. 
My heart allowed him entry, as did my body. And after the first time, my soul recognized his.
Desired what he delivered.

I craved his darkness, he bathed in my light.
I submitted to his desires, he craved my very being.

Running from him wasn’t an option.
Fate bound us in its intricate pattern.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow!! I needed a minute to truly absorb what the heck I just read. I enjoyed this story immensely. There were parts that left me a little squeamish, but the plot and the characters compelled me to continue reading and I'm so glad I did.

At the age of 16, Angel was taken and life as she knew it was over. No longer in control of even her body, she was turned into a sexual toy. The only light in the darkness was the man of darkness himself: Samael. He alone could spark a fire in her and she started to live for him. However, what they shared was forbidden and could get them killed. As their circumstances became more dire and sas they were unable to completely hide their feelings, Sam had to finally make a choice: keep giving in to his desires or make the greatest sacrifice in the name of love.

This story was dark, raw, gritty and oh so freaking sexy. With many elements of a BDSM lifestyle, Dani Rene wove a story that allowed me to see beauty amid the pain. She brilliantly captured the sexual and emotional evolution of the relationship between Angel and Sam. She also gave special hints with regards to the side characters which snagged my interest in continuing this series.
