CONSTANT CRAVING by Tamara Lush is my first novel by this author and I am can say that I am a new fan. I am always looking for a great sexy read and when I was asked to participate in this blog tour I decided to take a chance and am so happy that I did.
This past Summer I became dedicated to reading smut and thus generating the #summerofsmut. I read many books in this genre and quickly found out that the second-chance romance trope has become my new favorite. So, you can imagine how happy I was in reading CONSTANT CRAVING, a second chance at love novel centering on two vivid characters: Justine, a journalist turned publisher who is trying to save her family business and Rafael, the ex-boyfriend that poses to have the solution to all her problems.
Fifteen years have passed since they parted ways under strained circumstances and now they face each other once again and Rafael makes her proposition that she can’t seem to refuse. But only if she will live with him for a month. Justine is conflicted when he suggests they spend the next month together, because she is unwilling to re-open old wounds but she wants to move forward and is hopeful this arrangement will help. For Rafael it was supposed to his way of moving forward and a step towards the healing process and getting over Justine, but he only finds himself falling deeper and harder.
I loved seeing these two together because their former history lent a bit of a bittersweet edge for these two former love birds and it made their rejoining hot as heck. I found myself routing for them and enjoying their hot and tempestuous relationship come alive on the pages of this book. Tamara Lush had penned a great book that is well worth the read.

Justine Lavoie is shocked when her first love appears at her newspaper, offering to save it from bankruptcy.
Rafael Menendez de Aviles is one of the richest men in Miami, and still has a powerful hold on Justine’s heart.
She’s even more shocked when Rafael makes a proposition: spend the next month together, allowing him to do anything he desires with her. And make no mistake: he will demand everything, and make her submit.
If she agrees to his indecent proposal, her newspaper gets everything it needs.
But is Rafael only back in Justine’s life to show her what she’s missed all these years? Or is he out for revenge? Or something more dangerous — like love? Justine isn’t sure, but Rafael is still devastatingly sexy. She’s powerless against his touch, his kisses, his body.
Opening their hearts and giving their bodies to each other a second time may destroy them forever…especially when the pain of the past and difficult choices for the future collide.
