CRAVE

In Trey Stone’s world, it’s rare to find someone not playing some game. Innocence is never really innocence, but an act designed for some other purpose – to inveigle an invitation into his bed, into his inner circle, or into his confidence. He’s never foolish enough to fall for it, but Trinity Howard, it wouldn’t be falling. It’d be something else… something he craves. And tonight, it’s his for the taking. (Source)

“Trey craves her honesty with an intensity bordering on obsession…”

CRAVE is recommended for 18+ and can be purchased on a pre-order basis here.

The book follows this pattern until the end where Tests are given including the one seen below:

This book is great for any audience who wants to challenge their mind. It would be a great way to introduce young children to the concept of illusions, and give older children a more in depth look at them.

Do you remember when you were introduced to optical illusions?
