Every Sunday morning it’s just us in a fancy hotel suite.
We fight, argue, and make up like teenagers do.
We touch, we suck, but we don’t kiss.
No, we never kiss.

His lips have been all over my body - everywhere but on top of mine.
I wasn’t supposed to need his touch.
To beg for a kiss...just one little kiss.
But our little arrangement has swallowed me whole.

I was warned that this book wasn't going to be have a real, deep story...
So I wasn't surprised that it was what It claimed to be.
Crave was fun, sexy,over the top ... NO frills when it comes to "good old-fashioned" fun chick lit with a huge heaping of Sexiness!
This was a no-brainer as in,this book literally was a ridiculous fun book to read.

This book was short, very sexy and entertaining. I really liked it!

The relationship between Judas and Jenna was nice. I wish we could’ve seen more of them before their arrangement so we could understand more their feelings, but that didn’t really affect my investment in them.

Overall this was a pretty hot read that kept my interest and never felt rushed even though is just a little longer than a novella. If you are looking for a fun read, with a sexy hero and steam this book is for you

Smut and lusty Love.

If you’re looking for quick reads with lusty, smutty love then Crave and the short story that comes after it, Bad for Me, are the perfect reads for you.

First is a no strings secret lovers office romance. Second story is a enemy neighbors to lovers romance. Both very hot and steamy. Book one is a tiny bit angsty, but not much. Book two is just hot hot hot.
Tink Magoo is bad at reviews

This was a prime example of why I have a shelf called 'contains people I want to punch'.

The heroine was like a threadbare doormat - there was one point where I thought she was going to tell him to fuck off and stop taking his shit only to turn the page and she's back to being meek and stupid.

The hero was an asshole - not a sexy 'Oh you rogue' asshole, just a tit.

His Mum is a bitch

His Sister is a bitch

His future arranged wife is a bitch

And the 'I love yous' come out of nowhere. 1 minute he's re

Nora is packing a lot of heat nowadays😉
Yanno the song" The Heart Wants What The Heart wants" . It turns lovers into fools and sane men into dumbasses. Why else would Selena keep crawling back to Bieber. Or Jenna Taylor keep running back to Judas Clement !! They're boss and Secretary and as they say, Office Romances are the hottest romances. This one is no different

I was so dumb. So dumb around him, but I couldn’t help it. Judas Clement had a spell on me—one I wasn’t even trying to break.

*4 Craving Clement Stars *

I never expected a novella to pull me in so quickly, nor would I ever expect it to turn me into a puddle of mush and literally craving for more.

Love wasn't part of the agreement, but those Sunday escapades tangling in the sheets with the sinfully delicious Judas Clement has turned Jenna into a lovesick puppy - the only problem? He was her boss and ran in a totally different social circle. While he is the King, she is the peasant. Any form of relationship between them

Crave was a quick, yet sultry and sexy read that will have you craving for your very own piece of Judas Clement!

Jude is the boss and Jenna is his secretary. They have an arrangement; spending every Sunday under the sheets... Until Jenna wants more from her boss.

She wants his heart.

This is one read that will have you wondering if Jude will give in to his feelings for Jenna or if he'll remain the playboy when it's all said and done. From previous Shanora books I think it's safe to

Sunday Sex - that's all it was ever meant to be. Her Boss - Jude doesn't do relationships and Jenna tells herself that she's content with what she's got. Until she's not. Plenty of angst, hot chemistry and nasty society women made this an easy, fun Novella to read.

I received an ARC of this book.

Crave is the third Nora Heat Collection story, but it works perfectly fine as a standalone novella. I read it as such, and found it worked perfectly fine without having read the prior books. It seems to me, you can pick and choose which of these stories you wish to read.

You're warned at the story of this book that it is not the kind to have a deep story, focusing more upon the quick and steamy elements. Such is certainly the case with this story, and people should be aware before entering. I kno

Crave is clearly the best in these sexy treats in the Nora Heat Collection. Shanora Williams combines charming with off the charts passion as Judas and Jenna find themselves more involved than just boss and secretary. Their Sunday trysts were naughty from the time they both entered their hotel suite and continued with dirty and flirty banter back in the office. I found myself wondering where my cigarette was after one of their romps!

And as sizzling as their chemistry was, it was truly heartwarmi

If you love super sexy, very sweet and a bit smutty, then you will love “Crave” by Shanora Williams.
Jenna is a secretary for Jude but on Sunday, they are more than just boss and secretary--- Jenna is at a hotel having the best sex of her life with Jude. He made it clear love wasn’t part of the agreement that they had for this agreement but she has to be content with what he is giving her…or does she?

Jenna is fucking her boss. There’s no other way to put it. They have an arrangement for every Sunday but things are starting to get complicated. She is having feelings for the dominant, handsome Jude but she knows she can’t do anything about it. He has to marry the women his parents picked for him or he could lose all he’s worked for. But will Jude let his parents dictate his life all the way to the altar or will he finally give in to the craving, desire, passion and feelings he has for Jenna?

One thing I will say about the Nora Heat Collection is…Hot, Hot, Hot!! This one doesn’t disappoint. Crave, like the others in this collection is a quick, steamy read.

Jenna has a standing Sunday appointment. One that leaves her totally fulfilled and satisfied. It’s a simple arrangement that when it was made, it made total sense.

Judas is the sexy, hot, single boss who is quickly realizing that he needs more than just Sunday’s with his secr

Nora Heat, definitely brings the HEAT in Crave. I believe it's now my favorite story by the ever AWESOME Shanora Williams/Nora Heat!

Crave gives us a sexy, fun, passionate, charming couple with Judas and Jenna. I'm a HUGE fan of office romance. And this one definitely quenched my thirst for this trope. Can an office romance lead to more???

When Judas, the Ceo, and Jenna his secretary find themselves falling for each other, outside the normal Sunday tryst they have, can they continue their chara

If you are looking for something steamy, with a feel-good story-line then look no further.

Every Sunday there is an agreement between Jenna and Judas. They both know the rules; anything goes except kissing and come Monday it is back to business. And by business, I mean literal business where Judas is the boss and Jenna is the secretary. Also, it is just a Sunday thing. No fraternizing during the week and no feelings. I do have to say, at first I was not a Judas fan but over the pages he grew on

Crave is the third book in the Nora Heat Collection and can be read as a standalone. It is not a book with any depth or drama but if you are looking for a quick sexy romp with the boss then this is the book for you!

I found it very OTT especially the Sunday nights and act as normal whilst in the office. The h lacked any backbone but this is fitting for this story. However not having read any of this series I wasn't aware of what I would be reading. I much prefered the author's Tainted Black book

OMG! This was a filthy, dirty, steamy novella that reeked of sex. I loved it! Sometimes you need a story that is just a panty ripper (forget bodice). I read it pretty much in one sitting and it really was hard to put down. Jenna has an agreement with her boss Judas Clement that outside of work they will meet on Sundays for balls to the wall sex but no kissing and outside of the hotel room...they are not to speak of it. Unfortunately for Jenna...she starts to develop feelings for Jude and thinks ...more

I had never read Shanora Williams before, but when I read the blurb for Crave I knew I wanted to read it. It seemed simple enough. Sundays only, no strings, no feelings. But how long can two people share their bodies and not let feelings get in the way?

Crave was a quick, sexy and steamy read. Judas and Jenna met every Sunday to enjoy their bodies, nothing else. But Jenna’s feelings begin to change for her boss, a man she can never have. Judas does not do relationships and though Jenna was okay

Oh my Mr. Clement... how sinfully sexy are you?
I absolutely loved this story in the Nora Heat Collection. Jude Clement is a devilish angel. He oozes sex and arrogance causing a panty melting read. While this is a novella, there is nothing "short" or missing in this story. Every single page is gorgeously dirty. And while the physical chemistry between Jude and Jenna was off the charts, their emotional chemistry made this story real and lanced the heart.
I didn't want the story to end. I needed a

Loved the story. It had some drama which wasn't bad. With a secretary and a boss who's supposed to be married to someone else you know there has to be drama. Plus there's a short story in this nook that was amazing (Bad For You). That short story was like 5 stars. Its about an arrogant neighbor who likes to party and a red head across the street who hates the noise.

If you want a quick, sexy read this is definitely one to check out. Judas and Jenna will light your kindle on fire and leaving you begging for more. This is a quick read filled with lots of dirty sex and a small plot. I instantly liked Jenna's character and wanted to knee Judas in the balls. The chemistry between these two just radiates off the pages. You can instantly feel it, all the emotions, the lust. I would love to read more with these two like a second book.

This was one hot sexy little novella that will leave you sinfully satisfied.

Judas and Jenna had an agreement that they would meet up every Sunday to have some hot and sweaty sex that left them both satisfied. It was a routine for them, but was it enough for Jenna? She was starting to feel like her feelings for her boss were starting to evolve to more than just a sex-capade with her boss once a week. But what did Judas want? He made it very clear that it was nothing more than just sex for them.

Crave is Book #3 of the Nora Heat Collection, a series of sexy Novellas, and if you’re in the mood for a quick read, or to get in the mood, **wink, wink** this will be right up your alley. This story features Jenna and her boss, Judas.

Jenna Taylor is Judas “Jude” Clement’s secretary and for the last three months they’ve been meeting in hotel rooms for sex. Casual, meaningless sex, nothing more, Jude made it clear that was all that it would ever be. He made up the agreement, meeting every Sunday,
