Raven: To seek, plunder, or prey. To devour ravenously. To seize as spoil.

I am Raven.

I knew what it meant to fight my way through life.
To be the victim, the spoil, the prey.
I decided long ago I would take control of my future.

No more bug infested couches.

No more drug-addicted mothers or absentee fathers.

No more welfare checks or moldy bread.

No more settling.

I though

description I like this cover. I guess it's a pretty good representation of the story. I mean they have *lol* The composition is good. Interesting typography for the title. The name and the tagline is a little too big in my opinion. Otherwise it's a great cover.description

I'm not new to L.L. Collin's books, but Ravenous has made its way into becoming one of my favorites. One word, Breck. I loved every part of him. His compassion, his heart, his vulnerability were the perfect combination to have me tearing through the pages. Ravenous is a compelling story filled with real, honest, flawed characters who will have you rooting for each and every one of them.

"I'm an escort." A what? An escort? What the hell was that? Like...a prostitute?

Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks has left Raven mostly responsible for her twin sister due to their mother’s drug addiction. In an effort to make enough money to get her sister out of their mother’s house Raven begins working for an escort service. Raven doesn’t expect to meet the two alluring Kingsley brothers and have such a strong attraction to them. Porter Kingsley is the over-confident playboy Doctor
Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
I loved Raven!! I admired her courage,determination,and strength! She wanted a better life not for herself but for her sister, Chrissy. She needs money, a job and to remove Chrissy from their mother! When push comes to shove and opportunity comes knocking.... Raven answers! That same opportunity puts her in the path of 2 men! Identical in looks but, different in every other way!

Breck is a teacher and ex-military and Porter is a famous surgeon. I felt Raven had a hard choice to make! One offers

“How do you read my mind?”
"Don't you know yet? I see you, Raven."

This is one of those that the title had my attention and I want to read it. Another new-to-me author and so going in, no expectations and no anything.

The first couple of chapters were actually a meh for me, but I was curious enough to continue reading and I was glad I did. Since this is another case of going in blind, I'm glad I did.

Raven is an escort, whose new to the job, so she could save up money and get her sister

I love it when a author can make the reader feel as if what they are reading is really happening. I got so into these characters that I couldn't put the book down afraid I was going to miss out on something crucial going on in their lives. Crazy, I know but that is just how involved I got while reading.
The characters Breck, Porter and Raven are well crafted, plot well thought out and beautifully written..

Excellent Read.

Ravenous by LL Collins 5 Stars

If I say I ravenously devoured this book, is that too cheesy? – Maybe? Ok, I won’t say it then :)

If you have never read L.L. Collins before, this is a great book to start with.

Ravenous is the standalone story of Raven and Breck. Raven is a strong woman who is taking control of her future. Breck is a guy who absolutely knows what he wants to do in life. When Raven and Breck meet there is an undeniable chemistry. Both of them are strong in their convictions of doing

Ravenous by LL Collins will not disappoint. There are many facets to this book, and that's what I loved about it. Raven, the heroine, is a young woman who is mature beyond her years - for a good reason. She does what she needs to in order to protect and provide for her little sister.

Breck is a swoony, sexy and lovable book hero. He's modest, and like Raven, he cares about others. He has a very close relationship with his twin brother, Porter, who is equally swoony. In all honesty, I was torn be

L.L. Collins is a new to me author and I'm so happy I've gotten to read her work. She's been on my TBR but this is the first book of hers that I've read. While I admit that I thought this book was going to be a bit darker than what it was, I'm happy with the outcome. I really didn't know that I would have swooned over someone as much as I did.

I enjoyed the plot a lot. I like the idea that the Raven could like both guys for total different reasons. I won't give away anything but the idea of just

I have become a huge fan of L.L. Collins' books, so I couldn't wait to see what this book was going to be like, since it looked different that what she usually puts out. Let me tell you, I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED in the slightest, as Ravenous showcased her brilliant writing style on new levels. Raven was a character that I fell in love with instantly, and cheered her on the whole book. She will do anything to keep her sister safe, not to mention, make sure she doesn't have the same childhood that R ...more

I love L.L. Collins writing and this book made me feel Ravenous!

The story of Raven and Emma struggling in college and having to become escorts is emotional when you learn of the backstory and their lives leading them to that point. Raven is doing it all for her sister Chrissy.

Meeting Porter that first night was life changing for Raven- he was gorgeous, successful and craved her. Who knew he would have a twin that was as equally gorgeous that actually gave Raven sparks. I loved her and Brecken t

Ravenous by L.L. Collins is a gem, a 5 Star read.
Raven is a young woman who hadnt an easy life. She cares for her little sister and her own education. She does what she needs to do.
At her "job" she meets two men. Two enticing men. She has insta-chemistry to both.
But decisions are to be made.
I loved this book from page one. I love LL Collins writing, and I love the characters. I love how they struggle and fight for the things they want.

LL Collins has been one of my automatic one click authors since I read her first book. This is now her 13th book and once again she has blown me away. She NEVER disappoints. EVER.

This book has all the FEELS!! You've got a bit of mystery in the characters, there's angst, and there's hot sexy bits that will leave you breathless.

Raven, Breck and Porter will have you hooked and as LL words flow you will fall in love. Highly recommended.

This is my first book by this author, but I can guarantee that it will not be the last. I fell wholeheartedly for Raven and Breck. A fantastic story that is backed up by amazing and complex characters. L. L. Collins captivated me from the start and I thought of nothing else but the characters and the sensationally deep yet blindingly beautiful story they told. I have found a new auto one click author to add to my list. Love, love, love this author.

Slow hand clap for this book. It was awesome. L.L. Collins delivers another hit. I have been with her from her first book, and I will continue to read anything that she publishes. Her writing is flawless. She puts her heart and soul into her work. She wants her product to be perfect for her readers. This book will take you on a roller coaster ride with your emotions. Will you cheer for Porter? Will you cheer for Breck? I devoured this book. My jaws clenched. My stomach was in knots. I just could ...more

I know many books have a lot of positive reviews in the first few days after their release, but damn…I can’t understand why this book has so many positive reviews.

It’s entertaining, I’ll give it that much, and I did manage to finish it and although I considered giving it 3 stars at one point, the fact that this is supposed to be a love triangle and, imo, it completely failed at that…I can’t give it more than 2 stars.

I’m not the biggest fan of love triangles because the heroine is usually wishy

I gave this book 5 stars!

This was my first book from Ms. Collins and I am defiantly hooked now!!!!

This book is a standalone about Raven and Breck. Raven is a strong woman who is mature beyond her years. BRECK is sexy, compassion, the best heart. This book will take you on a emotional roller coaster ride and will leave wanting more. The chemistry is off the charts and both have things from the past that makes them the people they are today.

L.L. Collins has another hit with Ravenous! This book has angst, drama, and a story that will grip you from beginning to end!

Raven has had a rough upbringing, so she’s doing everything she can to better her life and help get her sister out of the life she’s in now, so when she’s offered a job that can help get her the money she needs to help her younger sister Chrissy get out of her mom’s care sooner rather than later, she’s hesitant, but ultimately takes

She works hard, saves her money and dreams of the day when she can bring Chrissy, her sister to live with her. When her best friend Emma, sets her up in an escort service, all Raven can think about is the money that she will make.

You know that feeling you get sometimes - hopefully not often - when you get to the end of a book and you think... Why did I bother with that? Seriously, why did I keep reading? Why did I waste my precious time with that rubbish?

That was me after finishing this story. And to be honest I don't want to waste even more time writing a review for it, so I'll keep this brief.

Things I liked

- Identical twin love interests (I can't resist twins, and they were identical - bonus)
- The heroines

But, in doing so she meets two men who are so similar but so very different at the same time. How can she choose when both men make her feel weak in the knees? When she has such strong chemistry with both of them? Will her decision be the right one or will she go down the wrong path? Will they be able to handle all the secrets she kee ...more
Could've been better

So I liked the idea of the plot and was excited to read this book but the way the characters were really turned me off to the book. Some of the things that were said during the sex scenes weren't what people say in real life - it made her seem like a professional hooker and I hated that there was this insta-love at first site thing JUST by her looks alone and he basically was in love with her before he knew ANYTHING about her. It was an ok read but could've been better

I'm blown away! L L Collins writes the absolute BEST leading men EVER! This story is so sexy, sweet, heart breaking, and beautiful. The writing in captures it very unique. Loved the storyline as I totally related to Raven and her insecurities. I highly recommend this read!!

I absolutely love everything that LL Collins writes and this was no different! It's not your typical love story but it works!! Two people who have been hurt in their past, somehow find love with each other. This book is amazing read and I can't wait for Porter's story. Well done LL

4.25 stars. Really solid love triangle that scratched my itch for this trope. The only reason why I didn't give this 5 stars was cause I wished this was longer to flesh out the characters more. Either way, I am definitely looking forward to the next book!
