In Working It, New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan delivered a sexy and addictive contemporary romance about Emmy Clarke, a sweet southern girl out of her depth in New York City’s cutthroat fashion industry, and Ben Shaw, the hot male model who introduced her to a world of pleasure. But their story is far from complete…
Emmy Clarke is no quitter. Toughened by her experience working for fashion heavyweight Fiona Stone, Emmy has come a long way from her country girl roots, embracing her fast-paced and unpredictable life in New York City.
Though that life comes with more than a few complications.
First there’s the mystery of Fiona’s pregnancy, which may or may not involve Emmy’s boyfriend, superstar male model Ben Shaw. Emmy has always known that Ben comes with more baggage than she can handle—and not the Louis Vuitton kind. Yet Ben is the only man who has ever loved Emmy for who she is, and she wants nothing more than to do the same for him, even if it means forgiving his past and overlooking their wildly different lifestyles.
But when a shocking secret from Ben’s past comes to light, unraveling all of their progress, Emmy must decide if their relationship is worth the fight, or if it’s time to ignore her passion for him and let go.
I love this sequel! I was so scared to start it because I thought the author would rip apart my all-time favorite couple and break my poor little heart! I really, really enjoyed CRAVING HIM just as much as the first.
Emmy and Ben have such a strong connection and I loved that Kendall Ryan did not destroy this. Usually the second book in a series the author breaks a couple up, and more than half the book they are separated, only to end up together at the end.
In CRAVING HIM, Emmy and Ben are together for almost the entire book. They face a lot of issues, but go through them together. I LOVED THIS! It was such a huge change from all the other books I've read lately. I have become such a big fan of Kendall Ryan’s books and will continue to read them. I have her on my AUTO BUY list. She writes great stories filled with believable characters, strong situations, lots of humor, and tons more. I just cannot get enough.
CRAVING HIM was a great sequel with a perfect ending. Ben grows a lot in this book and you really see the change in him. He was true to his word. Despite his past and all the loose screws in his head, he knew he wanted Emmy and was willing to change his life and give up all the fame and fortune if he had to just to keep her. I am literally blushing writing this review. Love me some Ben!
My only complaint was the wedge that finally does come between them (NOT FOR LONG). I didn’t really think that was a good enough reason to really get upset. And it sucks that I can’t really go into details because it would be a spoiler. So, back to why I love this book so much. ;)
I just do! It’s steamy, entertaining, romantic, and very emotional. You definitely have to read WORKING IT – book one in the series in order to really follow book two. Don’t worry… it’s worth it!
A definite Good Choice for Reading!
