Were-lynx Kennedy’s world implodes when she’s sent to a facility for illegal and torturous experimentation. Only after she’s rescued does she learn she’s been living a lie for 22 years.

This novel picks up right where the previous story in the series left off and takes readers deep inside the world of the were-lynxes. It is action paced and suspenseful at times, wildly romantic at others. Crandall does a fantastic job of drawing readers into her story & giving them a world to loose themselves in. The novel is well written & edited, the polished finish making it infinitely more enjoyable for the reader.

The world that Crandall creates is well rounded and developed on all

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Cravings, by Lynn Crandall, is book 2 in the Fierce Hearts series. It is the story of Kennedy, a were-lynx, who was found at a research facility that her adoptive parents placed her in. She ends up in the care of a colony of were-lynxes run by her brother. This book is about how she learns to cope with what her parents did, the fact that they weren't really her parents, and how to find where she truly belongs. She meets Asher,

So, my only reason to read this book was because it was said the genre was paranormal-romance (see the bold? Yes, that’s pretty much explained everything…). I thought this gonna be the same old paranormal-themed story but Cravings brought new creature to the story called were-animals. Cravings was my first book of Ms. Crandall so as usual I made no expectation

I read the book because it was in the series. I also read it to make sure I did not miss any information for moving forward in the other books of the series.
Upon being introduced to Kennedy I felt her pain and confusion. I could understand her feeling out of place. Not connected or no connections. She had to find out who and what she was and disregard what her life was for the last 22 years.

Kennedy for me was like a wild card. I was not sure what to expect from her. Where she was going or what

OMG LYNN CRANDALL HAS DONE IT AGAIN EXCEPT THIS BETTER THAN EVER BELIEVED!! I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest opinion of “CRAVINGS”. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion of her book.

Ms Crandall has a very unique writing style that is all her own. She has taken fantasy and mixed a bit of reality into. By that I mean, one day in the future -who knows we might actually see these things come true. At the moment though it is EXCELLENT PARANORMAL !!! You the reader – are s

I love a great paranormal read, and this was a really good insight to a new--well, to me--breed of shifters as the book revolved around lynxes.
I also enjoyed this new concept of 'colony' and instead of shifting, they 'shimmered.' On top of that, it was a new take to have the shifters develop another supernatural trait. Asher, the hero, could nudge people into doing something they didn't particularly want to do, and the heroine, Kennedy, could understand how something worked within sec

***I was gifted this ARC for an honest review***
Kennedy has just had her life turned inside out. Everything she has ever known has been a lie. The people she thought were her parents are fakes, and she just found out she may have a brother. The Colony, the group that saved that saved her from danger, has decided to take her in. With all she's been through, Kennedy is not sure who she can trust, and the members of the group are not sure she can be trusted. Asher, a member of the Colony, has decid

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Cravings is Book Two in the Fierce Hearts series and although the author has written each book as a standalone I’m really glad I decided to read Secrets first as I personally believe I had a better understanding of the storyline and characters.

I am a huge Paranormal Romance fan and this book did not disappoint as it had all the elements I love, shifters, romance, suspense and a bit of a thriller at times.

Author Lynn Crandall allows us to slink into her were-lynx world once again in the second installment of her Fierce Hearts paranormal series.

On the pages of “Cravings,” Ms. Crandall gives us characters that exist in two worlds – our world and their lynx colony, with traits so believable, readers will find themselves looking at their neighbors, the mailman, or their best friend and waiting for them to shimmer into a were-lynx. No need to fear, though, these folks w

Cravings had the elements in a book that I really love!! It had the paranormal aspect of having were-animals and it had plenty romance with not so perfect characters. Kennedy has had a rough life growing up with some awful people posing as her parents. She has been beaten and abused into submission for no reason. On the other hand, her love interest, Asher, has a hard time forgiving himself for misusing his

*****This book was given to me free in return for a honest review******
This is the second book in the series. This book is about Asher and Kennedy. Kennedy was rescued from a research facility.She is a were- lynx. It was an okay read. It is typical in that the shifters there are being used as research animals to see what makes them tick. Or being used to create some type of super solider. Kennedy was stolen from her biological parents at birth,they were told she'd died. Instead she was being gro

Spoiler alert!

Despite not having read the rest of the series, "Cravings" was written very well that I was able to catch up to speed pretty quickly. I found it to be an interesting read, as I haven't read much of that particular genre before. However, I found there to be quite a lot of background information that wasn't necessary to understanding the story so I skimmed over those parts. Also, I couldn't understand why Kennedy went back to the Novaks twice. One minute, she was working at the vet's

The story picks up from a previous book, and since I hadn't read it, I was a little lost for a while. There are many characters and it took a while to get everything straight. I liked the story, though. Kennedy's adoptive parents sent her to facility to be experimented on. She is rescued and finds out she has a brother and he takes her in and introduces her to his colony of cat shifters. She had never realized there were other were-lynxes until she was sent to be experimented on. She gets to kno ...more

I have received this book as part of a blog tour in exchange of an honest review.
I have read another book by Lynn Crandall and I can say this is as good as the previous one.
The auhtor did a great job writing about this different and interesting creatures and making them seem real.
The story moves at a good pace and the story is very good.
Paranormal fans will definitely be able to enjoy this book, I think.

I was asked to read this book for an honest review….What an exciting read! If you enjoy action, adventure and drama you will love this book! This is a story of finding yourself with a riveting edge of your seat adventure! I laughed, I cried and I fell in love with Kennedy!

Kennedy and Asher complement each other. This is a beautifully written story….take yourself away on a new and different kind of adventure/love story.

This book was given to me by the author for an honest review. I feel like I've stepped into the middle of a series and it took me awhile to get caught up with all the characters. This story is about Asher, a bobcat who can nudge people with his mind and Kennedy, a were-lynx who has a photographic memory and is a computer whiz, great at hacking. Two misfits who are on the outs with their families, taken in by a colony of were-lynx where they learn to trust in themselves and each other.

It all came down to trust. And to have the right to make her own choices and freedom. She found all that finally and a lot more.
