RELEASE BLITZ ~ Craving Absolution by Nicole Jacquelyn!

Farrah Miller and Cody “Casper” Butler have a longstanding relationship that both refuse to discuss.

It isn’t romantic.

It may not even be classified as a friendship.

Casper’s been saving Farrah from herself for longer than he’d care to admit, watching silently as she drowned herself in alcohol. Then, when she finally got her act together, he left. 

He told himself he was giving her time to sort herself out. 

He tried to give her space.

But getting shot in the chest can change a man’s perspective, and Casper’s done waiting.

When he shows up on her doorstep one night, everything changes.

He’s the man who’s seen her at her very worst.

She’s his weakness.

He runs when things get hard.

She never lets anyone see below the surface and is terrified of being abandoned.

He knows it’s a long shot, that there’s a good chance she’ll never drop her guard for him—but he has to try. Because a life with Farrah is exactly what he wants—even if he has to fight her for it.

This is by far my favourite in the Craving Series (yes I know I say that every time) but this time Nicole just shot it out of the park. I LOVED Casper/Cody & Farrah.

There were so many players in this story and they all weaved together beautifully to give us some real insight to Farrah & Cody.

Where to begin, we all know Farrah watched her boyfriend being murdered & that Cody was shot as a prospect on guard duty, Farrah had suffered at the hands of her abusive mother & step father & Cody was the all American boy next door whose parents had been brutally murdered & his sister was lucky to escape with her life. Farrah has always seemed self absorbed & wild in the past two books so I just couldn’t see how this relationship was going to work.

Cody had decided that Farrah was worth the trouble and saw beyond her issues and he was there for her whenever she called, she’s so damaged & delicate and has made real attempts to turn her life around. I get it now, I get why she hit the self destruct button and I really warmed to her & wanted her to have happiness so much. When they finally figured out the way forward it was hard to imagine them ever being apart!

Nicole just blended all of the side characters seamlessly, the plot was clever and kept you guessing and not knowing who to trust. I adored how they were a calm in Camerons storm and Farrahs seriously screwed up relationship with her father was heartbreaking. Brennas protectiveness of Cody & Farrahs selflessness for her best friend & her god son. Gran & Lily were awesome and when put together so seemingly effortlessly it all kept me completely enthralled and it was a definite could not put down read.

Nicole Jacquelyn is the mom of two little girls and a full time college student. She hasn’t watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. At eight years old, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told people she wanted to be a mom. When she was twelve her answer changed- to author. By the time she was eighteen, when people asked her what she wanted to do with her life, she told them she really wanted to be a writer- but the odds of that happening were so slim that she’d get her business degree “just to be safe”. Her dreams stayed constant. First she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year- with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool, she sat down and wrote a story.
