Series Book Review: The Crave Series by Nina Levine 1

all your reasons


Book 1 All Your Reasons






When heartbreaker meets ball breaker, sparks will fly.

Rockstar, Jett Vaughn, isn’t against settling down, but no woman has ever held his attention long enough for a relationship to develop. That is until he meets Presley Hart. She’s confident, opinionated and headstrong. She drives him to the edge of crazy, but he can’t deny how she makes him feel.

He wants her heart, but she only wants his body.

Presley’s not against giving her heart to a man, but she has too many reasons why he’s not the one to give it to. Jett isn’t a man who will take no for an answer though. He’s about to declare war on her reasons and take what he wants.

** Please note this is a novella of approximately 25000 words



be the one

Book 2 Be The One




Rock star Jett Vaughn has one thing on his mind these days – Presley Hart. He will do anything it takes to make her his. At least, he thinks he will.

Presley Hart wants one thing in life – a man who will make her his number one. After being married to a man who never put her first, she swore she’d never settle for second best again. At least, she thought she wouldn’t.

When Jett’s life comes crashing down around him, his flaws are laid bare for all to see. Presley stands by her man but there’s only so much she can do to help him. She loves him and wants to be with him but she has her limits and Jett’s about to reach them.

In the midst of hurt, loss and destruction, can love win out? Can a man who is struggling to find his way, show the woman he loves just how much he wants her to be the one? Or is there only so much a heart can take before enough’s enough?


My Rating:

4.5 hearts

Favorite Quotes:

Book 1 – All Your Reasons

“Love’s an everyday experience; it’s something shown in the mundane things you do for your partner.”


“I’ve never had a mad look at me the way he does.  It’s want, need, and hunger all wrapped up in appreciation, and I want to bask in it forever.  I never want him to stop looking at me like that.”


“His kiss delivers bliss as if it’s being injected straight into my bloodstream.  The effect is intoxicating, and I want a never-ending supply of his drug.”


Book 2 – Be The One

“Yes, I’ve already decided on this.  I want you, Presley, and I’ll do anything in my power to have you.”


“And while I think she’s being slightly irrational, I understand that when you fear something, everything is magnified and easily blown out of proportion.”

“Lennon may have broken my heart but taught me something.  He taught me to own my story and to love myself regardless of any parts that need editing.”


“Sure, the guys and I have people all over the world who think they love us, but when all is said and done, the only opinions that count are those of the people we love.”


“I think he needs you guys more than he knows.  When someone’s hurting so much that they lash out at those they love, it’s a sign they need you badly.”


My Review:

All Your Reasons was an excellent start to Nina Levine’s sexy new rocker series, and I was quickly hooked.  Jett declared that Presley would soon become addicted to him and although it took her a while to come around, I was instantly a Jett junkie.  The man has all kinds of mad skills.  I don’t usually do rocker stories but hey – it’s Nina Levine – I knew it would well done and I was not disappointed.  The story held my interest from page 1 and quickly picked up steam.  It was a quick, light, and steamy read, just enough to lure me in and leave me clamoring for more.   And Be The One was the more I was wanting, and proved to be another stellar story from Nina Levine.  Swoon, she certainly brings the heat in these sensual romances that contains considerable emotional ups and downs in addition to a rather intensely morose patch in Book 2.  I enjoyed the humor and banter of the band members, but Ms. Levine squeezed my heart with her insightful writing as the characters battled a full array of relationship and professional challenges, as well as their grief, fears, media storms, and each other.  The characters speak in extensive expletives, which prevented the use of many of my favorite quotes, as they would never have made it past the Amazon censors.   A satisfying conclusion to this love story, although Book 3 promises to focus on the most mysterious and contentious band member, and I am already looking forward to uncovering Van’s story.
