He was more than obsessed. He was lost in her. And if he didn't stay away, while he could, he knew that Jasmine would never be free of him.

I've been waiting for Drake's book since first meeting him in Mine to Keep. Nothing better than a broken, brooding alpha male that suffered the ultimate betrayal. I couldn't wait to meet the woman that would bring him to his knees. Maybe the problem was that I set my hopes too high? I'm not sure. But for whatever reason, this book didn't quite

"There was a danger in loving too much. When you loved too much, you had too much to lose."

Mine to Crave is the fourth book in the Mine-series by Cynthia Eden and once again, it was a sexy, suspenseful, thrilling ride that kept surprising me until the end. Ever since I met Drake in the previous books of the series I was intrigued by him and excited to find more about this tortured bad boy. And after having read the story, I like him even more! That in combination with a strong,

Life’s a gamble.

Drake is a man, who is haunted by his past; a man who takes what he wants but after a very hard lesson he has lived his life with one rule, never trust a pretty face. Jasmine is not a woman to trust, Drake can see the secrets she hides when he looks into her eyes, but something about her keeps calling out to him, even though he just should turn and walk away.
He looked at her, and he ached. He touched her, and he craved.

Drake was supposed to be a means to an end, bu

***2.5 Stars***

Unfortunately, this one didn't live up to the expectations of this series.

I'll keep this simple and to the point. The Cynthia Eden suspense that I've come to expect with this series was here, but felt watered down. Still enjoyable, but I missed the usual OOMPH her stories have. Even her big "holy shit!" twist was predictable.

But my biggest letdown was the romance. I felt zero chemistry between Drake and Jasmine. Their insta-connection didn't work for me...I didn't get it. I felt

Why did I wait so long to read a Cynthia Eden book? This one was perfect read for me. It had enough mystery, action and enough steam between Jasmine and Drake to keep things interesting.

I'll definitely be reading her back list and future titles. :)

Mine to Crave is the fourth book in the Mine-Series and though I didn’t love it as much as I expected to it was still a good read. I’m not reading this series in order, don’t ask me why, but for me it really doesn’t make it difference. You get enough of the back story with the relationships in the story so it is easy to understand the connection between the other characters in the book.

When Drake Archer and Jasmine Bennett meet there was no denying that instant attraction. Drake is no

Not bad, but a little too chaotic. Too many mini plot twists and misdirections that muddied up the main plot and distracted from the characters.

3.5 I wanted a bit MORE Stars!

I feel like I have waited for Drake Archer’s tale forever, especially since he has peaked my interest two books ago. He has always been in the background, waiting to be needed, fiercely loyal. Yet his past is quite traumatic. He has a fortress around his mind and heart and he trusts no one outside his two military brothers. For this reason, I was pretty shocked at how fast he fell for a mysterious red-head set out to deceive him.

Jasmine Bennett has had a rough life.

I won’t lie; I have been waiting patiently for Drake to get his own book since we were first introduced to him in the Mine To Keep, I loved Noah and Trace as well, but there is something about his dark and elusive character that drew me to him, and has held me in its grip from the get-go. So here we are! Drake has gotten his book, and I have to say Cynthia Eden did not let me down, Mine to Crave, just like all of its predecessors grabbed me from the start and ke

3.5 Drake Archer Stars!

I love Drake Archer, he is a such a badass, and I have to admit I have been eagerly waiting for this book. The Mine Series is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES and Cynthia Eden writes so AMAZING suspense stories.

Drake had some serious dark brooding going on in the other Mine books, so I was expecting some AMAZING THINGS, but I think out of all the books this was my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, it is so worth the read especially since I hope we get to learn more about Vi

“I want to belong.” To some place. To somebody. She wanted a home. A real one. When the holidays came around, she wanted to bake cookies and state up at a Christmas tree and be held in the arms of a man who loved her.

She didn’t want to be alone forever.

Mine to Crave is the fourth book in author Cynthia Eden’s Mine series. While the series is sequential, this book does work as a stand-alone. If you like to read your books in order, you may want to start with Mine To Take,

I received this book from Netgalley for my honest review.

I liked this book better than the previous 3, but it still had the same flaws as the previous ones.

Here we have Jasmine and Drake as MCs.

Jasmine is a very skilled hacker, but we don't see her skill in action, we are only told about it. She's also deternimed to flee Drake and here we have again the notion that Drake is
I am a sucker for books in series. But hated that sometimes they came out pretty similar/identical to each other. It gets boring when you already know what to expect, because you've already read it in the previous books. Same ol' same ol' just different names and different places.

The bad guys wanted to hurt the heroine, the hero will save her no matter what, because somehow by some kind of magic SHE IS HIS.

"She is mine," he growled. Looks familiar? Yup. The exact same line in book #1. And book

4 Stars and another great, fast paced read from the "Mine" series. Drake and Jasmine are a very well matched couple. The bad guys in Eden books are always very 'bad' and Maxwell Case was no exception. The twist from the past concerning Noah was a nice touch that added continuity to the story line of the series. Eden mentions another book for the series, but I'm not sure who is left to feature. Possibly Saxon? I hope it's not Victor, since I dislike him with a fiery passion;)

The fourth book in the Mine Series by Cynthia Eden brings us the long awaited story of Drake Archer. The one that has been more lost than the rest, the one that made the mistake. When Anna Jean strikes out to claim revenge, it is her former lover that has blood on his hands. It's the man that doesn't forgive himself for sleeping with his friend's girl all those years ago and it's his lack of hesitation to end her life that haunts his ni

Well... I guess my first impression of this book needs an explanation.

It was Cheesy!! A wanna be erotica book, that only bordered erotica, and at the same time totally cheesy talking about who's pleasuring whom... Just over kill in that department. And, everyone had a hesitant stutter! For example, but not a quote: "Are you...Are you sure you want to do this?" And last, a woman who keeps saying she's not a whore, but meets a guy by trying to get him to sleep with her as a diversion. Well... Fir

I loved this book. I totally love the romantic suspense genre. This was an edge of my seat, page turner. Drake Archer is the typical tormented, possessive, hard ass hero. He is suspicious of Jasmine from the start but cannot seem to resist her feminine wiles. Drake is a billionaire casino owner and just wants to build his empire and forget about a painful, dark past.

Jasmine Bennett is a women of mystery that catches Drakes attention from the beginning and works to lose him, every chance she has
The fourth book in the Mine series by Cynthia Eden. Jasmine Bennett is hired to collect information about billionaire Drake Archer. But Drake is suspicious and distrustful.

Drake and Jasmine's story is my favourite from the Mine series. It was a roller coaster of a read what was going to happen next was anyone's guess it had so many twists WOW and the secret Jasmine had about Noah kept me gripped. Great having more Trace and Noah as well. Can't wait for book 5.

Jasmine is by far my favorite female lead in this whole series up until now , Drake ... not so much , his character wasn't developped enough for my taste , I would've loved it better if they matched Jasmine with Trace , that would've been a definite 5 stars for me , nevertheless this was still highly enjoyable

My rating: 4 of 5 ⭐

His wealth and and reputation as callous playboy casino magnate belie Drake Archer's sharply honed skills and instincts as an ex-Special Forces agent. Those same instincts tell him the gorgeous redhead in his casino, trying to draw his attention, is not his regular 'hook-up' fare. His suspicions are confirmed when despite his misgivings, he lets her get close and at first opportunity has her trapped into showing her true intentions.

Cynthia Eden is a prolific romance writer and has written a number of series that have caught my interest. Although I have read and greatly enjoyed her For Me series, I had not had the chance to read any of the books in the Mine series until now with this fourth installment. When I began reading the book, I soon realized that characters and aspects from previous storylines in the series are more interconnected than I expected, and I worried that I might not be able to fully enjoy and appreciate ...more

I really enjoyed reading this but the thing is as much as I enjoyed this book .. as much as I was sorta of disappointed I expected Drake's book to be explosive .. dramatic .. edgy .. especially since Drake was a very f*cked up individual very complex character .. what I got was a great entertaining read but not the ...more

3 Stars

After being burned one too many times, billionaire casino owner Drake Archer has sworn never to fall for a woman again. But when Jasmine Bennett walks into his life with a sexy smile and risky secrets, Drake finds himself irrevocably drawn in even though he cannot trust her.

Series Note: This is book 4 in Eden's Mine series. While it can be read as a standalone, there are references to events in previous installments that provide important background to the hero's characteriza
Romantic Suspense is one of those sub genres in romance literature that can be very, very good or very, very bad. This is an example of very, very good.

You have a former military man who now owns and runs multiple casinos with a tortured past. He has everything that money can buy but happiness. To have happiness you have to trust and Drake Archer trusts a very select few people but never a woman. He learned that lesson the hard way a long time ago.

Drake Archer owns several casinos, and when he sees a redhead in the bar curl her finger at him, he's shocked and intrigued. He's above the casino floor in his office, looking through tinted glass, yet it's as if she can see him.

Jasmine needs to get into Drake's office. The only way he'll take her up there, is if she can convince him he wants her for the night. Drake is able to ignore her until he sees a big brute of a guy put his hands on her.
