I Liked It!
L.L. Collins has another hit with Ravenous! This book has angst, drama, and a story that will grip you from beginning to end!
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!
