Crave - Melissa Darnell

Crave (The Clann #1)Serie: The Clann #1 
Release date: 2011 

Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail.

For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes backdifferent, and suddenly he can't stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences.

I really love the cover, that and the summary drew me in to read this story. I’m glad I did! I love how the author switches from Savannah’s point of view to Tristan’s throughout the whole story. It’s kind of a Romeo and Juliet story, I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling that way. It’s really a good love story centered around the supernatural world. Tristan and Savannah can’t fall in love with each other because of their families, naturally they do. I love how Savannah struggles with her feelings for Tristan and how she doesn’t understand things until she becomes very sick. Then the mysteries are revealed, but that keeps you hanging in the story. I love that you learn about the feelings of Tristan way before Savannah finds out.  You learn that he struggles to and that everything isn’t easy for him. The scenes between Tristan and Savannah are clearly the best scenes of the book. The characters were very likeable. I loved that Savannah was very realistic in handling her problems. I also liked that she didn’t feel like she was ugly, while in fact she was beautiful but didn’t know it. No, Savannah didn’t think she was ugly, but she didn’t think she was gorgeous either. More like a regular girl. And well, Tristan.. He’s just the sweet hot guy! Overall, the book is very good and I highly recommend it.
