Review ~ Ravenous by Eden Summers

RavenousTitle: Ravenous
Author: Eden Summers
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: August 1st 2013

She’s a small town caterer, he’s a big city chef, but they don’t need a kitchen to make things sizzle...

Erin McDonald likes her simple life in her small town: no drama, no fuss, no uncertainty...until Jesse Hackett breezes back into town. Erin never quite got over how he left for the bright lights of the big city, and took her heart with him.

Jesse never regretted his decision to leave small town life behind and chase his big city dreams, but he’s always regretted leaving Erin behind. No woman has ever compared, and once he convinces Erin to let him touch her again, he’s never going to let her go.

Sparks fly and fires are rekindled, but the basic divide still remains: what really matters in life — location or love?

Ravenous is a novella that I really enjoyed!! It is set in a little town, not far from where I grew up in country NSW, Australia. I have been to the town numerous times, and have visited the places mentioned in the book. I think that because I had that personal experience, it really helped me connect with the book.

The characters in this story are easy to connect with as well. Erin is a country girl who lost her first love when he decided to move to Sydney, to broaden his horizons. She has created her own business and is content with her life. Jesse wanted to build a new life, but Erin didn't want to re-locate, so he put all his focus into succeeding. When these two reunite the sparks are still there, but the stubbornness and determination are too.

I loved watching the tension between these two. They know they still have feelings for one another, but find it so hard to back down or concede. The sexual tension is definitely off the charts as their chemistry is stronger than ever. Although it is a short read, I was able to understand the characters and their reservations easily and I wanted them to find their happily ever after! Eden has again delivered another sizzling story that any country girl can relate to!

PictureEden Summers is a true blue Aussie, living in regional New South Wales with her two energetic young boys and a quick witted husband.

In late 2010, Eden's romance obsession could no longer be sated by reading alone, so she decided to give voice to the sexy men and sassy women in her mind.
Eden can't resist alpha dominance, dark features and sarcasm in her fictional heroes and loves a strong heroine who knows when to bite her tongue but also serves retribution with a feminine smile on her face.
