Synopsis 

Sometimes a crush can break you.

When Gabby Murphy landed in her brother's best friend's lap her whole world shifted.

But after years of watching Cam go through women her heart can't take anymore. Now in college, she's finally ready to get on with her life. Her new boyfriend is the perfect man to squash her craving for Cam. But her boyfriend has an addiction, an obsession that Gabby soon finds out he can't let go.

Some cravings last forever.

When Camron Taylor received a thump to the head, he couldn't help but adore Gabby. When she grows from cute kid to desirable woman his imagination goes to places it shouldn't. Afraid of ruining friendships he pushes her away. Until something seems off with her new boyfriend.

The past isn't always left there.

Cam is the savior she's always needed. Gabby is the woman he's always coveted. When past mistakes come back with a vengeance will their love be strong enough to fight it? Or will the past keep them apart?




My Review

It has been a long time since I have read such an emotionally charged book. This book had me holding back tears before the second chapter. I could actually feel the heartache and undeniable love that these two had for each other. To read about the way Gabby went from having a crush to loving Cam with all that she was over 10 years made me want to go hug my hubby and be thankful that he got his head out of ass faster than Cam..lol But then to read how Cam has been in love with Gabby for the past five years but is afraid to show it outta fear of losing her brother Josh as his best friend and then screwing things up with Gabby and losing the relationship he has with her, was absolute torment.





Gabby first laid eyes on Cam at the age of eleven and literally fell for him that night. Fast forward ten years and she still carries a flame for him but it has grown to full blown love that all but consumes her. She feels like he will never reciprocate and after her twenty-first birthday party he tells her just that. (And let me tell you that seen will tear your heart out and have you giving your book a what the fuck look.) So she decides to move on and meets Brandon, at first he is so loving and caring towards her but then she starts to notice something is off but can’t put her finger on it. When everything comes to ahead she realises that the love she feels for Cam can never be replaced by any man and decides to end it but when she does all hell breaks loose but never fear one sexy ass man is there to pick her up..Cam



Cam has been best friends with Josh for the past ten years and watched Gabby turn into a beautiful women and he slowly fell in love with her. But fear keeps him from moving forward till one day after countless nights of being a man whore, he realises that Gabby could very well be the love of his life and he’s throwing it all away. He vows to show her the man he can be and be the one to make her smile, scream out in pleasure and hold her in her lowest times. When Brandon is in the picture he just knows something is off about him and when push comes to shove he is there for Gabby every step of the way.




So I don’t want to give more away to you all so I’m just going to let you in on my love of this book and its characters. Gabby and her best friend Tiffany have a friendship that I think every girl can relate to. The names they call each other and the shit they say and do to each other had me smiling and laughing till it hurt. Plus I had to call my bestie to let her know I love her to death. The way I see it any book that can bring out every emotion known to man in me is a must read in my opinion!! So do yourselves all a favor and read this book…hot country men, hot sex and one hell of a story that goes from crush to burning bright love.
