The BookChick
My Rating: ★★★★
VERY GOOD: The characteristics of a 4 star book include: a great story; I loved the characters; and there was an interesting plot and unique story elements; there may have been a few odd things kept the story from being amazing. I would read it again and I would recommend it to a friend.
My Thoughts:
Fans of the Talisman series will absolutely love this one. It was high octane from beginning to end! I loved the twists and turns of the story as the author navigated the various facet

Like I said in my comments "How can you not love this man?" When I met Dante in Obsession, the first book in this amazing, mind-blowing series by Sofia Grey, he came across as a “screw you & your friendship” type of guy - the bad boy, rough around the edges, Harley riding, HOT Dante in a "good girl/bad boy" way that makes a book a favorite. But Dante is so much more than that – he is a man who has lived his life on his own terms and is ready for whatever life throws his way – except maybe love a ...more

I usually love Sofia Grey`s work after this book I think I need to worship her. What can I say, I absolutely loved it.

This is book 2 in the talisman series and book 1 was awesome this was even better. I don’t even know how to star it really.

Dante is a rough guy with a motorcycle, leather jacket, piercings and tattoo`s. His attitude is not real sugary sweet ether and he is in a bad situation. On top of that he is a medium with dead people approaching him constantly wanting stuff from him. H

Dante. Dante. Dante. Oh how I loved Dante. In this second installment of the Talisman series we see Dante who was originally seen in book one. Dante is a psychic and lives his life running from one problem to the next. He does a lot of bad things but he's just trying to get by and take care of his grandmother. Dante is hired by a bunch of students to hold a seance for them. It is there that he meets Katherine. He is immediately attracted to her but is sure he isn't good enough for this girl who ...more

Katherine Fitzwarren

Once again Sofia Grey has given us great strong characters with a purpose.

I fell for Dante in Obsession and nothing has changed for me, except the man has gone and got himself tangled up with Katherine (Kitten) Fitzwarren.!!!

This is a wonderful continuation of the story Ms Grey started in Obsession, with all the main characters having large parts to play in the overall story. This has lots of twists and turns and yes, we even get to revisit

Like the first book in this series, this one immediately sucks you in, getting you caught up in the lives of the characters and in trying to puzzle out what's going on around them. You'll quickly find yourself lost in all the labyrinthine twists and turns, sure that the answers are just around the next corner as it were only to find that they're still nowhere in sight. But you won't care because the tapestry that's being woven is so fascinating that half the fun is watching to see which threads ...more

Holy Crap. Where has this series been all my life!?
I loved "Obsession" and this book is a wonderful continuation of that story. I loved the multiple POV in the first book and loved it in this book as well. I was so happy, when I turned the page and found that Josh & Suki had been intertwined into this book. All the characters are strong, well developed and you can't help but to fall in love with them. They're all amazing! The story was fast pac

Another totally addictive read by Sofia Grey.
Full of paranormal action and so worth it, another story of hers that I found hard to put down.
The two main characters are not as unlike each other as they think in the beginning and it was fun to see them come to that realization.
This has peaked my interest and I look forward to reading the next in the series.

Don’t you just hate those bad boys, with their bad language, bad attitude, and bad influence on good girls? Of course you’d never be interested in motorcycles, leather jackets, tattoos, or smoking hot stares?


Katherine Fitzwarren knows it’s true—bad boys are bad news and Dante was the worst.

“Try as I might, I couldn’t find any redeeming features about Dante. I counted his failings in my head: his obnoxious, cocky attitude; his pierced and painted wannabe girlfriend; his leather jacket and bl

"You are an asshole, but a misguided one." ~Eve

A big thanks to author Sofia Grey for giving me the opportunity to read and review the second installment of her Talisman series, Craving. I also had the privilege to read book one but I have to say, I liked this one better, love it actually!

As noted above, Dante is kind of an asshole. He's grumpy, has the a chip on his

Craving is book 2 in the Talisman Series and I can honestly say that it wasn't until I was about half way through that I found anything that made me wonder what I'd missed in book 1. This was such an enjoyable read.

Dante is a psychic biker, a young man with tattoos and piercings who is short of cash. We meet him holding a séance in an old RAF aerodrome in Cornwall for students who want to record any activities.

Katherine is one of the circle and Dante labels her as "posh" but is surprised when

Craving is book two in the Talisman series. I was offered this book as an ARC in exchange for a review from the author so here goes…

The story starts with Dante, who is someone I was curious about at the end of Obsession. The story retreads some of the same beats of Obsession, Katherine has an asshole father who plays a similar role in her life to Gabe.

I liked that a lot more of the paranormal aspects of the stor

WOW... That is all I can think of after finishing Craving. Sofia Grey has blown my mind with this one! I was on the edge of my seat through the whole read. I was hooked from the beginning! It was non stop action and I have to say that by the time that I got to the last 30% of the book or so my anxiety was ratcheting up. I had NO clue how Dante and Katherine were going to manage to have a HEA after everything that happened. I kept looking at the percentage to the end of the book dwindling down an ...more

No lightweight romance, Craving delves deep into the dark world of the paranormal, creating a compulsive story with threads winding through to bind the whole thing together and pull the reader in deep. A creative storyline, cleverly told.

Not normally a fan of first person stories, I was totally absorbed by Grey’s ARC which I’d requested after seeing some of her snippets. Pleased that I had, I think Ms Grey may well have convinced me that first person works. It certainly does here, and having alr

A deal with a demon, a biker psychic and the girl who might just be his salvation... if the demon doesn't get to her first.

Dante isn't your typical medium. With his leather jacket, tattoos and piercings, he looks more at home on his motorbike than he does holding a séance and Katherine has no intention of getting involved with him. He's the complete opposite of the kind of man she wants and represents everything she's tried to leave behind, but she needs a medium and he's the best one around.

This is the first book of Sofia Grey's that I have read and it won't be the last. This story pulls you in from the beginning to the end and has you on the edge of your seat. Has HOT romance, suspense, action and so many twists and turns that you wonder if there will be a happy ever after ending.

Loved Dante, the hot tattooed, psychic biker and Kitten (Katherine) the smart and down to earth woman he falls for. Love how their relationship develops. I definately recommend this book and intend to get

Once again I have found someone to give my book boyfriend a run for his money and his name is Dante. I was getting kind of scared towards the end because I didnt see how Sofia was going to be able to pull this off and have a HEA but she did and I was so happy for it.

She devours pretty much anything in the fiction line, but she prefers her romances to be hot, and her heroes to have hidden depths. When writing, she enjoys peeling back the layers to expose her characters’ flaws and always makes them work hard for their ...more

“I counted his failings in my head: his obnoxious, cocky attitude; his pierced and painted wannabe girlfriend; his leather jacket and black motorcycle; his tattoos and multiple piercings. Even his name rankled. Dante. I’d spent my formative years dodging his type. I refused to be intimidated by him. That poncy lot. I seethed some more. And geeks? Surely he could come up with something more original. My entire year’s work depended on a successful outcome here, and Tristan had assured me this guy was the real deal, not just another charlatan. We only had two night’s use of the control tower. As of next week, it was scheduled for demolition. I’d convinced myself Dante was just a means to an end, and then he smiled at me, his hard, uncompromising face lighting up for just a second. With his sharp cheekbones and proud chin, he looked almost beautiful, and my stomach turned cartwheels. His eyes glittered like diamonds, pale silver that appeared luminous in the badly lit room.” 3 likes
