Audiobook Review: Crave by Tracy Wolff
No question about it – Crave was written with Twilight fans in mind. Not only does it give us readers the same vibes, but it outright plays with the tropes and lets you know exactly what kind of book it is from the beginning. With that in mind, I’m here to give you reasons fans of Twilight (and paranormal romance) will LOVE Crave plus a few reasons why it’s so much more than a copy of the story we all fell in love with so long ago.

My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.
Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.
Which could spell death for us all.
Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.
There’s a reason why Crave is the perfect title for this book!
For fans of Twilight
- A love triangle. If you loved the love triangle in Twilight, this is for you. It’s angst light and it’s clear who you’re shipping from the beginning.
- Familiar paranormals. Tracy shapes the paranormals around familiar tropes, though she does give them their own spin!
- Turf wars. There’s no shortage of drama happening in Crave!
And something new!
- Academy setting. Tracey is obv a fan of Legacies (also mentioned in the book) so fans of the academy setting will get a taste here. I hope we see more of it play out in book 2!
- The last chapter. OMG. If you were looking forward to Midnight Sun, that chapter is for you. Tracy, I NEED MORE.
- Variety of supernatural characters. It’s more than vamps and werewolves, which is what I love about the Legacies world, so it’s nice to see it play out here.
- Steamy. For a YA novel, there’s quite a bit of steam. I’m here for it.
- Dual narration. Oh, you just wait for that last part.
