Review: Crave Me - Cecy Robson
Wren O’Brien isn’t your typical female. As the only girl from a loud Irish family with seven siblings, she prefers fast cars to lip gloss and bad boys to good men. It’s the reason she’s nursing a wounded soul and keeping her distance from a dangerous ex.
Evan Jonah is running an empire and just moved from the lavish thoroughfares of London to the gritty streets of Philadelphia. When he walks into the nearest dealership, he’s expecting to find a reliable vehicle to handle the brutal winters, not a sexy female car rep with killer legs.
Wren doesn’t know why “Hotness in a Suit” asked her out. She doesn’t expect a great time or a night of passion that knocks her on her ass. But that’s exactly what Evan shows her.
She also never counted on how hard and fast she’d fall. But men like Evan—good men with even better hearts—don’t desire tough-talking Philly girls for long.
Evan has never met a woman like Wren. But he’s up for the challenge and ready to prove her wrong.

I've been looking forward to reading Wren's story ever since we were introduced to the O'Brien family and Crave Me didn't disappoint. As the only girl growing up amongst six brothers Wren learned to stand up for herself from a young age, her brothers are all incredibly protective of her but she has grown up fierce and ready to fight her own battles. She has a loud personality and knows exactly what she wants from life but she also has a really sweet, generous and loving side and she cares a lot about the people in her circle.
Evan is a wealthy businessman who is working hard to turn his company into something successful after the previous managers nearly ran it into the ground. He's is a bit of a geek, definitely a tech expert and he's totally different to the kind of guys that Wren usually dates but there is no denying the attraction between them. They are opposites in many ways but their differences compliment each other and when it comes to important values they're definitely on the same page.
I absolutely loved the way their romance develops, their attraction may be instant but the friendship and respect that builds between them takes time in a totally natural and very believable way. They have great chemistry but they fit together outside of the bedroom too and I really enjoyed watching them work together to achieve their goals. There are some issues that they have to deal with, mainly thanks to Wren's stalker of an ex but I though they handled their problems brilliantly and I liked the way they talked things through with each other and came up with solutions together.
We get the chance to catch up with all of Wren's brothers which is always fun and it's just made me more eager than ever to get to know the ones who haven't had stories yet. I'm not sure who I hope comes next but I have a feeling it might be Declan, I want to read all of their stories eventually though so I don't really mind what order we get them in. This series is definitely a must read for me, the sex is hot, the romances are sweet and well developed, the banter is amusing and the sibling rivalry always makes me smile. The O'Brien's are a close knit family, they may drive each other nuts but they are always there for each other and I love the way they're so protective of each other, you just know that if any of them has a problem the others would drop everything to help them.
