Mine To Crave
(Mine Series, bk #4 )
By Cynthia Eden


New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Eden continues her dark and sexy “Mine” romantic suspense series with…MINE TO CRAVE.

From the moment that billionaire casino owner Drake Archer sees Jasmine Bennett, he’s obsessed. Consumed by desire for the mysterious redhead, Drake will do anything necessary to claim her.  Yet as desire rages between them, danger is stalking ever closer.  Drake’s past isn’t dead, and the ex-Special Forces agent will soon have to face the ghosts he left behind.

Jasmine isn’t who she pretends to be. She’s a woman on a mission—and she’s supposed to be stealing secrets from the mysterious Drake. Falling for him isn’t on her agenda, but when lust and love tangle together, all the rules get broken.

When Drake learns of Jasmine’s betrayal…all hell breaks loose.  He knows that he should turn his back on her, but it’s too late for him. He can’t let her go, but he can teach her a lesson. No one betrays him…not without paying a heavy price.  Drake will destroy all of the enemies on his trail, he’ll bury his past, and he’ll teach Jasmine to want only him…just as much as he craves her.

This is an uncomplicated, straight forward story filled with heat and sensuality. Like the other books in the Mine series, there is a dark edge to it.  We start with a tortured hero who hides his pain behind a façade of control and stoicism.  He’s an uber-alpha who is vulnerable in unexpected ways.  I think this is why I liked this story.

Jasmine is spunky, strong, and honest.  I appreciated her character’s decisiveness, both in actions and ability to know her own heart.  Having grown up betrayed by her mother, she always carries that hurt and vulnerability with her.  But this does not stop her from making decisions and taking risks.  Little waffling, lots of loving.

This story is accelerated journey with no time to be bored.  It is completely engaging.  Once I started, I put down my other books, risked getting car sick by reading while riding in a car, and read under the covers. It is that addictive. 

Whether you have read the previous books or not, you will enjoy this latest add to the Mine series.  I literally could not put it down.  


“I know what I want.” Her voice was soft. Seductive.
            Drake stopped.
            “I-I have to ask, though…is that the way it works?”
            His back teeth clenched.
            “The ladies you take upstairs to your private room…they all ask?”
            Those women knew the rules going in. Sex. Hot. Fast. Hard. No promises. No ties. 
            Ties were the last thing he wanted. 
            He turned back to look at her.  “You came to this place looking for me.” 
            She backed up a bit.
            He let his lips curl and knew his smile wasn't going to be reassuring. “Be very careful. You don’t want to play with me.” 
            He expected her to scurry away then.
            But her chin notched into the air. “Maybe I do,” she said and her voice made his cock jerk. Sex and sin—that was what she sounded like just then.

  1. Nice review. I love this series and just started reading MINE TO CRAVE and am loving it. It's going to be interesting to see how Drake resolves his past to his present.

  2. I haven't got to the series but of course they are already on my TBR! Cynthia Eden is an excellent author and I know anything she writes is awesome. My fave genera are PNR and Historical but her excerpts are making a convert out of me =D
