RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in Crave Me, it’s time for the sole sister in the family to discover love.

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.

Crave Me ( O’Brien Family #3) by Cecy Robson •Protection I just finished reading CRAVE ME my first Cecy Robson novel. It may be the 3rd book of the series but I didn't feel lost while reading it. Each story is it's own standalone HEA focusing on one O"Brien sibling. I cannot wait to read the other stories. Although they don't need to be read in order I plan to go back and read them that way so I can read what I've missed! I was hooked from the beginning to the end. This one focuses on Erin (aka Wren) and Evan... I literally laughed out loud due to these characters, they go through quote a bit, but several times throughout this story... and is just possibly an Amazing Love Story! Due to sexual situations and adult language, this book is recommended for readers 18 and older! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Tasty Book Tours for an honest blog tour review.

Every time I read a Cecy Robson O'Brien book I think it is my favorite. However, Crave Me is definitely at the top of the list. Wren and Evan sparkle together and their romance is both hot and yet endearing. Wren's "in your face" personality covers up her vulnerability and Evan's childhood has left him remote, lonely but yet driven. The two of them together are dynamite. This is a well written book with a plethora of passion, plot twists, and a captivating story...all woven together for a dramatic conclusion! Thanks Ms. Robson for a wonderful story. PS...I want an Alfred!!!

Audio-book: Narrator – Tara Langella The narration here was exceptional! I loved how this narrator gave voice to Wren who had a deep Philly accent that I’m actually going to miss now that it’s over. I did struggle some with her British accent for Evan but I loved everything else about this narration that I was able to quickly adjust to it. (I did have to adjust the speed a few times when she was giving us his POV.) Each character here had wonderfully distinctive voices that I adapted to quickly and was able to recognize. This was just an amazing listen and I’m definitely going to be hunting up more from this narrator. Wow! This book was wonderful! I loved Wren and Evan! Their relationship was completely organic. I enjoyed watching them grow closer and even deal with “real life” as Evan is struggling with his business. When the big conflict between these two arose, I was really, really afraid one of these characters was going to make an awful decision. I was thrilled when this author kept what Wren and Evan felt for each other true and allowed them to work through it. This had a great pace to it and a ton of steam and chemistry between the hero and heroine. And holy heck! I’m absolutely in love with Wren’s family! That alone will have me searching out the other books in this series. Overall, I can’t recommend this book enough! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I had an absolute blast with this book! I like a good romance and have seen Cecy Robson's books around for several years but had never had the chance to read one so I excited to give her work a try. I think I have been missing out because this book was amazing. Once I started listening, I didn't want to stop. I am so glad that I decided to take a chance with this book. Wren and Evan were such great characters and they worked really well as a couple. Wren is tough, smart, and seems to win everyone over very quickly. Evan is dedicated to keeping his company going and is willing to make the necessary sacrifices to make it happen. He is very focused on business until he meets Wren. I thought that these two characters had fantastic chemistry and their relationship felt really authentic. This book has so many elements that I enjoyed. I loved the fact that there was a good amount of humor worked into this story. I was actually laughing out loud as I read certain passages and had a big grin on my face through much of the story. I also liked the bit of mystery in the story. I had a feeling that something was going to happen but I was never quite sure what it would be. There were a few pretty exciting moments before this book was over. Tara Langella has easily made her way onto my list of favorite narrators with this book. She really brought this story to life through her narration. Her voices for Wren, Evan, and the other characters were all incredibly varied and full of emotion. I thought that the special effects that occasionally showed up during phone calls and other similar events really added a nice touch to the overall audio production. I think that the quality of the narration really added to my overall enjoyment of the book. I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This is the third book in the O'Brien Family series but I thought it worked perfectly as a stand alone. This was a wonderful romance filled with fantastic characters that really had me wanting to see them find their happily every after. I can't wait to read more from Cecy Robson. I received a review copy of this audiobook from the author via Caffeinated Services.

How I Feel About The Story I have been following the O’Brien family from the first, and had been waiting for Wren’s story. I always pre-order the ebooks and read them as soon as they go live. For those who enjoy watching a brood of siblings develop not only in their individual books, but also as they unfold across the series, there is a lot to appreciate here. We see the bond between the O'Briens deepen as much as we see them work to achieve their own romantic HEAs. The individual characters and their family bond really pull you into the story. Wren’s tale has a lot of joy and warmth, but there is also an undercurrent of harsh life experiences to balance things out. We have a ‘villain’ of the piece, whose machinations speak to the current social and cultural climate in a way that never trivializes or makes Wren’s dealings with him into a parody or caricature, which is too often an unfortunate effect in some novels (exploiting trauma for a plot device). It’s a delicate line to tread, and Ms. Robson does a fine job. Though there are times when the dialogue can be trite or a little forced, this is the exception rather than the rule and does not long distract the reader/listener from an interesting plot and endearing characters. This really is another fine book in a great series. How I Feel About The Audiobook Unfortunately, this is where my review takes a bit of a turn. However, I will start with the strengths before getting critical. Tara Langella’s characterization of Wren was spot on; she imbued Wren with the perfect balance of snark, sass, strong, and, sweet. I loved those parts of the audiobook. Ms. Langella really brought Wren off the page. That being said, I wish a male narrator had been hired to read Evan’s parts. When a book is told in dual gender POV book, there should be a male and female narrator for the audiobook. The Evan sections were a real let down for me, even more so, because I truly love his character in the book. I tried really hard to keep an open mind (or ear), but Ms. Langella’s attempt at a British accent often pulled me out of the story and sometimes I found myself speeding up the narration to get through it. It is a shame, because I really did think she did such a fantastic job narrating Wren. If Ms. Robson decides to have audiobooks made for the other O’Brien stories (and I sincerely hope she does), they should have both a male and a female narrator to help the audio version better achieve what her books already do, well-delineated individual characters who can't help but endear themselves to the reader. I would recommend reading the book, even if you don't listen to it. The O'Brien's are a great bunch. I'm grateful for the opportunity to listen to this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Two and a half stars. Wren, the only daughter of seven O’Brien siblings is a mouthy car sales person. Evan is a mild mannered genius nerd from England looking for a more rugged car to cope with the Philly weather. Wren sells him a car but the sparks fly and they become more. When Wren’s psychotic ex deliberately torches her place of work she comes to act as Evan’s PA and help him save his company. This has billionaire nerds, psychotic ex-cops, jealous PAs, unscrupulous adversaries, an electronic ever/present ‘assistant’ and endless sex. OMG no wonder the company is circling the drain, Evan spends like 15 hours a day in his office having sex with Wren. Watching themselves in home videos and taking erotic selfies. This was just ludicrous, unbelievable, ridiculous and OTT.

Following the O’Brien’s through it all has been fun, exciting, intriguing, alluring, and more of a pleasure than I could have expected the first time I picked up the series book. I have enjoyed a great deal getting to know about this Irish family that loved hard, protect fiercely and have ties that bound and bond a family beyond the ordinary. This time around we get Wren. She has punch that will set you on your toes. She was not in the past book or know the typical female. That makes her that much more fun to get to see up close. Wren was not your typical female lead and she was the one sole female in a clan of boisterous males. I found that Evan made a perfect match for her he had his own strength of character. Nerd or alpha. Guess you will need to read to find out which Evan will be or would it be both in different ways. The characters here are rich and satisfying. There was no insta-love. This was a relationship between two people that had time to grow. Become more with each new encounter. The fact that real life occurred and happened allowed for the characters to feel that much more like a friend you were working to support.

I am craving more myself. I am putting Wren and Evan on my short list of favorite couples. I absolutely loved this story! I mean it. I absolutely love this story and I want to read it again. Cecy Robson always makes me cry, but this time it was in a good way. Wren and Evan are so opposite they are perfect together. Wren is the only girl in a family of seven children. Wren is larger than life. She is someone who always stands out in a crowd especially considering all her big, strapping brothers, and as she says “I came out of the womb mouthing off.” Evan is a more reserved personality. I think everyone is compared to Wren. He is just an all around sweet guy. He is trying to save the U.S. division of his tech company which had been mismanaged and rather than just closing it up and firing all those workers, he risks the entire company’s future on saving it and the people who work for him. Evan stops at the dealership where Wren works to buy a car that will be better in the snow and sees Wren. From that moment he is hooked. “I didn’t believe in love at first sight until I saw you.” But this isn’t an insta-love story. While Evan and Wren have an insta-attraction, Wren ends up working for Evan and helping him to save his company. They agree while they are working together that they shouldn’t be sleeping together but in working together, they get to spend more time with each other than the dedicated CEO would have been able to give Wren otherwise. It also kept them in close quarters and allowed them to get to know each other much better. It is months of this close working relationship and spending day after day with each other that allows them to really get to know each other before they begin to add sex back into the mix. I just loved watching these two building on their connection while working hard to save Evan’s company. They shared the ups and downs of that together. It was only the raging jerk of an ex-boyfriend and several of overprotective big brothers that were gumming up the romance. “Aw, come on. You and the others kept the key to my chastity belt too damn long. I would think you’d be happy Evan bit that lock free with his teeth.” Crave me is such a good romance and no one earned their HEA more than Wren and Evan. Even though this is the third story of the series, you can feel free to jump right in. I think you need to stop reading this review and download a copy.

Crave Me had me fooled for the first few chapters. I thought that this was going to be a lighthearted romance between two main characters who seemed to be complete opposites of one another. Then I started to notice the underlying angst that both Evan and Wren had, and as the story progressed, these two actually had a few more similarities than I gave them credit for. Cecy Robson gave us heart and heat, with the continuing thread among all the books in the series being about the power of love that a family like the O'Briens share. I found myself tearing up a couple of times in a number of chapters in the latter half of the book, but there were more smiles and even a laugh or two because this family had no boundaries, whether it be teasing or razzing each other or loving unconditionally. Evan may have been the shy, nerdy, wealthy CEO of his own company, but being around someone like Wren certainly brought out a more playful and passionate sides to him. There was no stiff upper lip with Evan! I love how these siblings are so interconnected with one another but you can read their individual love stories on their own. Of course, because they all belong to the same family, you're going to want to read the books that came before Wren and Evan's. There are enough hints that make you curious about each of the O'Brien brothers, whether they've already had their stories told or are still waiting for their time in the spotlight. How do I know? Because I actually ended up reading Crave Me before the first two novels in the O'Brien Family series or the three books in the Shattered Past series, from which the O'Brien Family books were spun off. After reading this third and latest release, I couldn't help myself; I had to read the other books and I'm glad I did because Cecy Robson is a master when it comes to tugging your heartstrings but leaving a happy smile on your face. Five stars for Crave Me. ♥

A deliciously sweet, sexy and heartwarming story that gripped me from start to finish. As the youngest of seven and the only girl in the bunch, Wren O’Brien loves sports more than fashion, is as loud mouthed as any of her brothers and is equally brave. But her bad choice in men has left her with more than a few painful scars and a sociopath stalker that pushes her to avoid any kind of relationship with the opposite sex until a well-dressed, well-mannered, mouthwatering, nerd visits the car dealership she works at and changes her life forever. Evan Jonah moved from London to Philadelphia to save the empire his father left him. He’s overwhelmed with work, consumed by his need to succeed and barely has time to eat much less to get involved with the sexy sales rep who helps him find the perfect car and captivates him with her strength, gregariousness and ability to make him smile. Will he run for the hills when her past comes knocking or will he prove to her that as with his company, he’s not afraid to fight for what he wants? Cecy Robson became an instant author to look out for with her great writing, loveable characters, good plot development and a story with just right pace wrapped up in sexy, sweet and swoony delightfulness, and Crave Me definitely delivered on all fronts. I liked Wren instantly, she didn’t take anyone’s baloney sitting down, she’s outspoken and strong, smart and not afraid to work hard. I kind of wanted to be her friend. Evan is perfect, actually he was a little too perfect for me at first with looks, smarts, money, he doesn’t just want to save his company, he wants to help the world be a better place. But I couldn’t help but fall for the man as I got to know him, who can deny a wonderfully sweet, attentive robotics nerd with an alpha caveman edge? From the moment they met the attraction was clear and they didn’t hesitate much to act on it. Even though they came from different backgrounds they complemented each other well and I loved how Robson builds their sweet and very hot relationship from lovers, to friends, to a very deep and lovely romance even though the road to get there is somewhat bumpy. There were so, so many sexy moments as well as very tender ones I highlighted my eReader I had a really hard time deciding what to put. I’m glad Robson made great teasers! I really enjoyed Wren’s family and all the rest of the supporting characters which gave the story an added layer. I can’t believe I haven’t read the first two books in the series, something I’ll remedy ASAP and I can’t wait to read the next one. Crave Me is book #3 in the O’Brian Family by Cecy Robson. It is a standalone contemporary romance told from both points of view with a happy ending.

This was awesome and so much fun to read. I was just going to take a peek to see what it was about and I ended up reading half the book in one sitting. This story was just so entertaining and super hot. Fans - self - cold - shower - Hot! Great Characters Loved Wren and Evan. I thought they had great personalities and were both so sexy. Evan was sex on a stick. But he was also quite the Gentleman, he was smart, sensitive, funny and patient. I loved how he was fiercely protective of Wren. They had such a fantastic connection from the get go between them and I loved the playfulness and the connection they had with one another. Excellent story as everything developed and unfolded. Nice details and build. I loved how their relationship continued to grow under some dangerous and difficult circumstances. There were also some great secondary characters that added so much to the story. I couldn't read this story fast enough. It was super enticing and super, super Hot, with lovable characters and a fantastic story. This had it all, a bit of drama, emotion, suspense, danger, love and heat. A Fantastic, Funny and Sexy 5 star read! Loved it! Highly Recommended! I voluntarily requested a arc through the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

Holy hell this book is emotional! The O'Briens by trade are big and bad. There's no exception for the only female O'Brien. If anything she just might be stronger than the others! When she feels, she feels strongly. So she needs her perfect match and that is most definitely Evan. He might not be the most alpha male around but he can hold his ground. He sticks to his beliefs and doesn't let anyone convince him otherwise. The two together build each other up and they can most definitely tackle their problems together. When things get hard and they're tested it only makes them stronger. Evan is most definitely the man Wren needs and vice versa. I loved the dynamic and chemistry these two have. I love that when things get really bad they believe in each other, their trust and their love. Most of all I love the sense of family Cecy always portrays. Definitely a great addition to the series!

This is the 3rd book in the O'Brien Family series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order. Erin AKA Wren meets Evan when he comes in to buy a car from the dealership she works at. The heat between them sizzles and sparks right from the start! Evan knows what he wants, but Wren is not planning to mix business with pleasure. Evan has never had his skin set on fire by a woman like this before. He will have to plan carefully to make his move. They both have some secrets in the past that may derail the future. This series just keeps getting better. I loved the heat between the two main characters. Familiar favorites are here too. I loved the suspense, the pace, and the humor. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

I have a confession I have never read this author ever before. She tends to write suspens eful romances with some very dark elements and I am more of a fun romance reader and I tend to stay away from suspense. But this book sounded so good that I could not resist and let me tell you this book was a total HIT!! Yes there is a lot of suspense, related to Bryant, the heroine, Wren's ex boyfriend and let me tell you it gets absolutely CRAZY. And that part of the story kept me on the edge of my seat. But for most of the story it is pure fun. I LOVED Wren. She is beautiful and peppy and smart and pretty much can do anything she puts her mind to. She meets the hero of this story, Evan when he comes to buy a car. She is this car salesperson and she is amazing at her job. She sells Evan on more than a car, he falls pretty hard for her. And well based on her first date, Wren falls hard for him too. Then things happen and Wren ends up jobless just as Evan fires is assitant and so Wren ends up working for Evan. And OMG I loved their boss/employee relationship. Yes you read it right, this is a boss/PA romance book too. Once Wren gets employed by Evan, I freaking loved this story so much. I loved her great ideas and how she treats Evan and how romantic they are with each other. This really was an absolutely wonderful story and mixed into all this story is Wren's brothers and their girl friends who are a total hoot as well. I beyond loved this story and I plan to read the other books about the brothers.

4.5 stars Crave Me by Cecy Robson was a great read. From the first page I was hooked, I found myself turning the pages and getting lost in Wren and Evan and all the O'Brien clan :D The storyline was sweet, romantic, swoon worthy, angsty and HOT! The characters Wren and Evan were wonderful, memorable characters and I couldn't get enough of them. They made me laugh, they made me swoon and they made me cry. Damn I loved! Having read the previous books in the O'Brien Family series I couldn't wait to read Wren's book and I'm thrilled to say it didn't disappoint. Author Cecy Robson created the perfect man for our beloved Wren. Evan was smart, sensitive, funny, patient and I loved how he wasn't afraid to open his heart and to give all of himself to Wren. Crave Me is a beautifully written, heartfelt book that will bring out all the feels and leave you with a huge smile on your face. Another fab read by author Cecy Robson, and I highly recommend it!

I can always expect a good story when reading a Cecy Robson book, and Crave Me is no exception. Both Evan and Wren are well developed characters that draw you into their world. On paper, Evan and Wren are complete opposites, but there is something about each other they can't resist. Evan doesn't know what it's like to have a real family and love, but Wren shows him what that's like when she begins working for him and sharing her family with him. She's a tough girl with a heart of gold, who finds her prince charming when she least expected it. Evan is a caring and giving man, despite his past, and I loved the way he looked out not only for Wren, but also for his employees. Highly recommend the book as well as the series - can't wait for the next O'Brien! 4.5 stars I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

An amazingly touching love story! I LOVED the love in this book. First of all, I loved Wren. Raised by six brothers, she knew sports, could throw down at any time and swore like a trucker. The fact that she's not the typical contemporary-romance heroine had me really intrigued. Evan was absolutely adorable. Tough on the outside, yet he didn't fight his feelings once he realized what they were. The story has some romantic-suspense elements in the form of Wren's ex, Bryant. This brought Wren and Evan even closer together, and the urgency of the situation put a lot of things into perspective for them. And I almost cried like a baby at the end. Lol! The final scene was so touching and so well-written, and I can't wait to catch up with these two in the next book (this is totally a standalone!) I am HOOKED on these O'Briens!!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

Wren is one tough cookie. She knows her heart, speaks her mind and never turns away from a challenge. To look at her, no one would guess the insecurities that hide beneath her tough as nails exterior. Crave Me guided me through a number of firsts. Not only am I discovering a new author, but Erin and Evan are my introduction to the O'Brien family as well. Wren is the spice. The flavor that grabs hold of the senses and lingers after the last bite. Evan is the main course. He knows how to satisfy the heartiest of appetites in the most subtle of ways. If every O'Brien is as magnetic, I just may have to make a return visit. A grand introduction to a spirited family.

I admit I was a tad wary going into Crave Me as I didn't get on with it's predecessor, Let Me , but most of what I've read from Cecy Robson has worked for me in the past and I do love the O'Brien family, particularly Wren. "You’re a breathtakingly beautiful woman, Wren. I want to know everything about you." There is nothing quiet and unassuming about Erin O'Brien: she's grown up with six brothers, 5 of them older, so to say she's headstrong and driven would be an understatement. But she's lovely with it and, as her feelings for Evan Jonah develop, we get see deeper into her: beneath her confidence lies a vulnerability and one that is hugely understandable. Evan is a complete sweetheart, I loved him. British, a gent, wealthy but so down-to-earth, he's a big-hearted loveable geek, who brings out the very best in Wren as she does him, and I appreciated how angst-free their relationship generally was and how they were simply two people navigating their way down the path of true love. "I’ve been trying to be good. But tonight, I want more than a little naughty." There is drama and action--you don't pick up a book by Cecy Robson and not expect to find that--but it wasn't overplayed: it didn't take the focus away from Wren and Evan's romance and instead added to their growing feelings and being of importance to the storyline. Basically the complete opposite to Let Me. And I loved the technology aspect with Evan's invention, Alfred who is basically the bigger, badass brother of a fairly well known voice controlled machine from an equally well known online retailer. "As much as I’ve lived, I wasn’t alive until I met you." Crave Me is romantic, sexy and full of feeling, and was an all-round, well-paced enjoyable visit with the O'Brien clan. And with Declan featuring a little more this time around, still amusingly putting his foot in his mouth when it comes to Mel, I'm hoping their story is soon.
