Review: Tell Me You Crave Me by Joya Ryan (Search and Seduce #3)

Note: This ARC was provided by Entangled Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Tell Me You Crave Me is the third novel in author Joya Ryan's Search and Seduce series and employs the falling-for-your-best-friend's-sibling trope but with the surprising twist of enemies-to-lo---vers included. Easton Ambrose has no desire whatsoever to be in any sort of committed relationship. He likes to keep his intimate affairs completely void of strings or attachments. While on the search for his latest hook-up, the last person he expects to be his target for seduction is his best friend's younger sister, Natalie St. Clair. The St. Clairs were there when Easton had no one else to turn to and considered them his own family. He's always treated Natalie like the annoying little sister she was, but he can't help but be aware of just how grown up she is at twenty-five. She's always pushed his buttons, but when they share what was to be just one night together, both can't help but push for more. They crave to be together, however, will the St. Clairs be accepting of their romantic relationship when East and Nat were practically raised as siblings?

I loved the first book in the series, Tell Me You Need Me, but was left wanting with the second one, Tell Me You Want Me, but goodness, Search and Seduce has bounced back with this third book. The back and forth between Easton and Natalie was great and the story was really engaging. From the banter to the sex, these two were well-suited to one another. The added element of a taboo relationship because they did grow up seeing each other as siblings and that's how the rest of Natalie's family treated them as well was intriguing. Because of East's past, it's easy to see why it would be difficult for him to risk his relationship with the St. Clairs, seeing as they were the ones who took him in and welcomed him with open arms as a teenager. Now, there's a hell of a lot of sex in the book, but it's not gratuitous, and it actually shows just how amazing they are when Easton and Natalie are together. Chloe Franklin and Gage McGraw remain my favorite couple in the series, but East and Nat come a close second. 4.5 stars for Tell Me You Crave Me. ♥
