Craving (Willow Creek #1) by Stephanie Summers

Title: Willow Creek: Craving
Author: Stephanie Summers
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: March 8, 2014

A small idyllic town nestled in the Appalachian Mountains is home to a thriving community. People are happy, crime is practically nonexistent, life is good…unless you’re Sabine Crowley, who has been chosen to be the next blood bag for the vampire lord who has protected the town from otherworldly creatures for 200 years.

Sabine has big dreams for her life, and none of them include becoming a vampire’s concubine. On her 18th birthday, she seeks solitude to process the cruel turn her destiny has taken. As she sits alone in Cleary Park, a sexy stranger approaches her. He’s tall, mysterious, handsome, and a complete jerk. He soon reveals himself to be a vampire and she’s terrified of him and her strange attraction to him. She wants to get as far away from him as possible, yet finds herself wondering if she’ll see him again.

Remy, the cocky newcomer vampire, has been summoned by his maker, Bastian, to take his place beside him in the hierarchy of vampires inhabiting Willow Creek. He’s none too thrilled to be stuck in a boring little town in the middle of nowhere where he’ll have to feed exclusively from the girl he’s been paired with. He’s repulsed by the whole situation.

When Sabine tries to run away from her fate, Remy is forced to follow and bring her back. They’re unwillingly thrust into each other’s lives and reluctantly find an undeniable attraction between themselves. Will they ever look past their contempt for one another and act on their urges? Or are they destined to hate each other forever?

Sabine wants nothing more than to get out of her small town go to college and see the world, but in her town every 10 years one 18 year old is chosen to become a donor  to the vampires who protect Willow Creek. And Lucky(yeah right) her she's been chosen now she'll never leave and will basically become the property of one of the blood suckers to keep him fed, he's arrogant, chauvinist and drop dead gorgeous. As the years pass and she becomes closer to 21 and beginning her duty of feeding him will she accept her fate? And what about protecting her heart?

Remy want nothing to do with the small town his maker lives in he doesn't want just one human to feed from and he certainly doesn't want to be stuck in an area where's there's nothing to do. Guess he'll just have to entertain himself and what better way than to mess with the girl he's supposed to be paired with especially when she's so easy to rile up. But the more he sees her the more he cares and feelings aren't something he's had in over 400 years since before he was turned. He wants out but what happens when he becomes ok with staying?

This is about Vampires finding a place where it's ok to be themselves and people know what they are. Willow Creek citizens may not know why their town is so special but they know better than to go back on their agreement. Sabine is feisty and strong and wants a life she'll never have. Remmy is cocky and an ass but you see more and more of him as he opens up if only in his inner monologue. Seeing them both grow to know and understand each other is their journey throughout the book and trying to understand why Willow Creek is so important is the clincher at the end that makes you want to read the next one to see what is really going on.

At the ripe old age of 30, she finally decided it was time to put aside the thought that she didn't have what it took to write a novel and began writing her first story. She has since began and finished a paranormal romance, The Willow Creek Series: Craving. Her short story, Love Forgotten, was chosen to be published in the upcoming Stardust anthology. Her contemporary rock star romance, Undone, is scheduled to be released later in 2014.
