My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.
Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.
Which could spell death for us all.
Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Being the new kid is hard enough for the heroine of this irresistible modern fantasy, even before she discovers her new school is full of vampires and monsters. After Grace’s parents die in a mysterious car accident, she moves from California to Alaska to live with her uncle, the headmaster at a prestigious academy. We were hooked by Grace’s dangerous and provocative relationship with sexy, menacing vampire Jaxon Vega. But Tracy Wolff’s heroine is far from a pawn in this supernatural romance—she’s an awesomely strong main character who takes control of their relationship. The chapters from bad boy Jaxon’s point of view also give him that much more depth. This thrilling start to Wolff’s Crave series is so much more than your typical girl-meets-vampire tale.
Decent YA book
Fun and quick read. Reminiscent of Twilight.
Elaborate writing, cool plot, bad delivery
So I love supernatural tropes and plots! Most of the time they’re very interesting to read and drown yourself in. However, if you hate the cliches of romance, especially with teens, then this isn’t for you. If you don’t mind these cliches, you’ll love it! Whatever floats your boat. However, it wasn’t great for me. The character development is good in the beginning but takes a nose dive once the female and male main characters meet. It’s that sudden “omg I look at you and all I can think about are these carnal desires I’ve never had before even though I don’t know your name.” There’s no true romance between the two, just sudden sexual tension thrown in your face. It has that cliche of “wait! Don’t go!” several times instead of any communication development between them. It also has that cliche of “I’m dangerous, you’ll die if you’re with me” and the girl responds with “psh die? I don’t believe you, you’re a good guy.” It’s a predictable book, not the plot kind of predictable, but predictable in the sense of how they interact with one another and how certain events at one moment will turn out. Like if the girl’s in danger, she’s obviously going to be saved by him while he’s all angst and brooding. Not all teenage interaction is like this and although we can fantasize about it as much as we want, the depiction is not realistic. Without the guy, the girl has no spine of her own.
Made it two chapters
The author loves the work "pretty". "Pretty sure", "pretty freaking (cold, hard, scary. Honestly take your pick) and, of course, "literally". Lazy writing, lazy editing. I am curious to know who is giving this book 5 star reviews. It's written like a pre-teen twilight fanfic, devoid of original thought and effective writing.
