CRAVE: is ‘Part Two’ of a duet and is not a standalone. You need to read part one first. 
This is the conclusion to Adaline and Kason’s story which is spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives.’

This starts off right where the previous book ended. This is Adaline's story, it’s not an easy story to read, but she needs to tell it. 

In the previous book whilst at a frat party she was victimised, her drink spiked, waking up with no recollection of what had happened, where she was, or who the guy was beside her, the only thing greeting her was a used condom packet and naked from the waist down. 
Not even a solid twenty-four hours at college, and everything is so screwed. 

The debilitating shame has her flunking classes and turning her back on all her friends but not only them but Kason too. He has no idea what happened to her. But he knows something terrible has come between them. He tries to break down her walls and get her to open up to him to no avail the end result just made her push him away even harder. Until she can’t bear it any more. 

She's drifting, and I don't know why. It was sudden at first, a quick change, a fast drop. But now she's on a slow descent, slipping even further away from me.

Fleeing her home town and running to Miami seemed like the only option to her, leaving Kason behind. A disconnected cell phone and no idea where she is has him turning back to his old ways. 

Years go by and a phone call from her mother out of concern has Adaline coming back home. Things aren't the same as when she'd left, Kason has slipped further into his addiction,I'm constantly fighting against old habits she's the only one that can help him. A second chance romance between them reignites but along the way she has to break someone elses heart to lay claim to Kason's again.
 I will love you until the sun dies. 

MY THOUGHTS: 
Along the way I kind of lost all respect for the heroine, one wrong decision created so much heartache, not just one heart was destroyed by her reckless decision, if she had've stayed and given him a chance I think I would've connected with her character on a whole different level. My heart broke for Kason, like literally broke. Here’s a guy that would literally take a bullet for Adaline and that’s what made this so unbearable to read.I can understand and appreciate why the author went the way she did though. 
I just hope many devices are insured, because like me I think many would have toyed with the idea of taking a hammer to it or throwing it at something. 
Admittedly the angst and emotional turmoil had me turning the pages like a junky getting her next hit. That roller coaster of wrongs and rights that had me glued to my ipad lapping up everything this author threw at me, moments I hated, but moments I loved. The feels were wrung out of me, and at the end of it I really hope we get Micah's story. I loved his strong mature character, and am hoping we get to read more about him.

Weeks became months, and months became years. Each day, nudged Kason deeper into his addiction. Each memory of the girl destroyed fed the craving for what he could never have again. 

Leaving a life-altering first love behind, Adaline tried moving forward to find love and trust and happiness. Pain eventually faded, wounds slowly healed, yet scars were forever left behind.

But some scars feel like kisses. 

When the shattered pieces of their hearts are forced to meet again, the two of them must decide how much pain their love is worth enduring.

This is what happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond the loving.
