    4 StarsI just finished Break me and jumped straight into Craving You! I have to say in the beginning of this book I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to finish it, I just struggled to relate to Kelsey and Parker at times but I'm glad I persevered and finished this story. I really enjoyed it in the end.I found Kelsey really hard to like in the first half of this book, I knew she had been through something at home but I just couldn't get past the whiplash she was giving me with her attitude towards Parker. I have to say though after about 60% of the book I ended up really liking her character and had a total change of heart where she was concerned! Again I found Parker hard to relate to at times but I have to say I loved him a lot sooner in this story than Kelsey!! He just softened my heart and I couldn't get him out once he dig his way in! I loved how he called Kelsey sweetness! Parker also had demons he had to deal with and my heart hurt for the secret he had to carry by himself since his mothers death but I loved the outcome and can't wait to see what develops between everyone! I really enjoyed Ashley's writing style, her debut and second books show what a talented writer she is. She catches your attention and keeps it throughout the entire story. The storylines were very good and I have to say I can't wait to see what happens with Jamie and Tim!!! I hope Blaine will get a story also.

    *I received an ARC for my honest review*Parker - A sexy BMX rider who doesn't do relationships, but that could change once he's had Kelsey.Kelsey - She doesn't believe in love, in her mind there's no such thing. Will Parker show her that there's more to them than just lust?This was a good read. it was angsty, hot, and sweet. At times I felt it was a bit rushed, but not so much that it took away from my feelings toward the story.~Alison

    I loved this book, it was the second in a series. Parker is awesome, and Kelsey was great as well. There story was reality based, and it ended awesome. Looking forward to book 3, and the next story, and the rest of this one. Please hurry.

    Craving You by Ashley Christin is the second standalone book in her new continuing TBX series and can I just say, really great stuff! This series is based on a group of 2 brothers, a sister and a “surprise” addition to the cast that will be revealed by the end of this book and you won’t want to miss it. Alongside their good friends and while attending college, these brothers are focusing on building their Pro BMX riding careers. Make sure you grab hold of your reading devices because the ride into their future is filled with some crazy bumps, a whole lot of smoking hot sex and some downright sweet and swoony moments.In this book, I was so happy to finally get to “know” Parker and wow, he met all of my criteria for a perfect book boyfriend. When I say this guy was just about everything one could want in a man, I am not kidding. He was beautiful inside and out, he was sexy, sweet, hot as Hades, he knew exactly what to say, how to say it and when to say it and he left me panting throughout the book. Parker, from the start of the book until the very end, never wavered from his charming self. He not only grew in terms of a young man becoming a man but also grew in discovering himself and what he wanted to achieve in his life. He grew so much from Colt’s book and it was simply amazing to watch and experience. Parker’s backstory was so sad and what I loved was that it was so relatable that I was able to connect with him completely and truly understand his internal struggles.Kelsey, oh Kelsey, she frustrated me so much that at one point I didn’t know if I wanted to throw my Kindle against the wall or her head. If it weren’t for Parker and the rest of the gang, she could have single handedly ruined this story for me. Her character had so much potential to have been executed in a far better light, it’s really a shame. I knew she was harboring a “secret” that was holding her back from trusting and loving but when the “secret” finally was revealed, I was like WTH, really, that’s IT???? I mean if an author is going to have a character holding out and annoying the reader throughout the story at least make it so that as a reader I can understand her, connect with her and why she acted the way she did but this “secret” was definitely not played to potential for me. The “secret” could have and should have been executed in a more believable way, which in turn could have redeemed her character almost completely but it was too weak of an excuse and I didn’t buy into it. By the latter half of the book and once she finally faced up to her feelings and most importantly accepted them, I really did warm up to her and by the end of the story I really loved her.I loved still seeing Colt and Brealynn and how their relationship was playing out and let me tell you it was awesome! Tim, Jamie and the “mysterious” character introduced towards the end of the book was a really great twist and hope we will get a book on that one too, wink, wink!Congrats Author Ashely Christin, this storyline continue to improve, grow, mature and I can’t wait for the next book!

    ***Arc was given by author for honest review***Kelsey Whitten is all F***ed up about love. Well look at her roll-model, her mom, who has been married all of seven times. Not to mention the dark things from her past; that just makes it that much harder to believe in love. When Parker Taylor strolls into her life a couple rolls in the sack does not mean love. Oh, but she craves him so much, and he her, but no matter how many times they end up together, and how much Kelsey wants Parker she is convinced it can't last. She. Won't. Let. It!Parker Taylor F***ing wants Kelsey but the walls she has built up keeps pushing him back. Every time he thinks she has finally let him in, she flips and pushes him right back out. All this back and forth is tearing him up. One minute they are all over each other and the next she's on a date with someone else. He's about had it. Also his family secrets that he has tried to keep hidden since his mom committed suicide are about to come crashing into the light. I loved this book! Kelsey and Parker are an explosive duo. The two are constantly at each other, whether it be in bed, or out of bed. They fight they make up. they swear every time will be the last time, but the two just can't seem to stay away from one another!

    Tina ~bookaliciousbabes blogI'm a little speechless right now. I have a complete and utter book hangover. This book was all kinds of feels... funny, sexy, heart wrenching, love, and completion. I am trying to compose myself enough to write after this emotional rollercoaster ride. It was a great ride too!! I am forever an fan of Ashley after this one.Kelsey and Parker both have had emotional pasts that have scarred them for life. Watching them go through this journey of breaking down each others walls was emotional to say the least. One minute they are fine, the next the walls go back up.I'm not going to give any details of this book away because it will take away from the emotional journey that they go through. You will feel like you are there on this journey called life with them. But trust me, you will get all the feels at the end.Parker fan for life here. I think.I love him more than Colt. Don't tell him please!!. If I haven't convinced you to one click yet, what is wrong with you? This is beyond a 5 star review for me. Thank you Ashley. And by the way, you won't put the book down once you pick it up!!

    I have been anxioulsy waiting to get my hands on Craving You!! I was dying to read Parker and Kelsey's story and boy oh boy, Ashley did not disappoint one bit!! From page one I was immediately pulled in until the last page!! This is a story about believing in and trusting in someone and love itself. It was packed with angst and drama and of course some amazing characters!!I do not want to give anything away, but I loved everything about this book. The writing is amazing and captured and held my attention the entire way through. The characters are funny and honest and they actually remind me of my group of friends. The chemistry is off the charts and sexy!! This one had the perfect mixture of drama, angst, some laughs, even some tough topics, but overall an amazing journey of two people trying to figure out something new and foreign to them.I would definitely recommend this story to everyone. I am now an even bigger fan of Ashley!! I am dying to see what happens next and will be eagerly waiting!

    I won a copy of Book1 and reviewed it. I sent Ms. Christin an email telling her what I thought of it and how much I enjoyed the ending. My favorite part was the interaction between Kelsey and Parker. Well, that email got a response with an ARC of this book.Yes, it's better! I enjoyed book 1 but the spunk and angst in this book I like better. Two broken people doing their best to avoid love and actually any sort of relationship.With the two of them living in the same house, it makes the pull they feel even more uncomfortable. But when you are constantly pushing love away, will you ever really live?

    After reading Break Me and not really connecting, I still decided to read Craving You. I am glad I did. I really enjoyed reading Parker and Kelsey's story. Maybe it was because I've already knew them from the previous book but I felt more connected with these two characters. The story has more emotions, drama and takes you for a fast ride.

    ** I was given a copy for an honest review. **4 "Sweetness and burning" stars!! Next book please???Review to come.I love Ashley Christin’s stories; new adult novels with explosive characters.Parker and Kelsey are the bomb, smoking hot and frustrating as hell.Well, what happened when these two are together? Fireworks and a banter off the charts! Foreplay was as its best and I had some much fun reading about this couple. This book was very punchy and refreshing. These two couldn’t stand each other for one minute and the other they were ripping their clothes off. A tumultuous, deep and consuming love story.Parker is a talented BMX rider, but always in his brother’s shadow. Parties, girls, having fun is his life but when he met Kelsey, he knew he wanted her, even if she’s off limits. Always for the challenge, the thrill of the chase is too tempting. One taste and he was ruined and he couldn’t get her out of his head. Damn this dirty talker ...Kelsey is the feisty fire cracker! This girl is a tornado and Parker didn’t know what hit him. No relationships, no attachment, just sex and having fun. Everything in this guy was as much infuriating than enticing, and he was driving her crazy. Her mind was saying no and her body told otherwise.They were craving for each other, fought a lot, rejecting their feelings and completely in denial unless when it came to intimacy. Their ways of communication could be repetitive or solved by sex but there was an incredible chemistry bringing their feelings to another level. Just intense.I really liked the characters' background. They had substance, they made you feel. Parker and Kelsey knew how to hide their scars pretty well but when they let it go, they could feel alive and for once have someone to rely on, a home.They didn’t have the best role models as parents and in a way made them tougher, harder and for sure not believing in love, something unrealistic to them. It was very interesting to read how these two are going to be together but not without fighting a lot. Anything is easy with these two and at times, they were driving me crazy! Really!High five Ashley, it was entertaining, fun, sexy and emotional! I can’t wait to read the next one!You girl rock!** My rating **

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review over on my blog (Pretty Little Book Blog) At the end of Break Me we knew there were going to be major sparks between Parker and Kelsey But their story is so much more! I honestly love their book more than Colt and Brea's. Break Me was an awesome story and set everything up for this book but with Craving You - Ashley gives us a much deeper story and the characters are more intense. Parker and Kelsey both are serial daters and totally against having a monogamous relationship and the push and pull of them both makes this an intense thrill ride of a book. I love Kelsey's character and we see how her backstory affects her present situation with Parker and how He has to fight against that and his previous reputation in order to find something worthwhile with Kelsey. I was so hopeful for them when she agreed to ride with him to that first competition in but then it got a little broken during their conversation in the truck when she was trying to say she was proud of him. He can't take someone who wants him for more than just his status as a pro rider and in his pants. Kelsey sees Parker as so much more and it scares both of them. So it takes a while before both of them get over all of their issues. But the fight to get together is almost as sweet as the being together part. I love their snarky back and forth. Parker's ride to fame as a pro rider is also a pretty cool part of the story. Seeing him successful and doing what he loves and is so talented at really makes Kelsey stop and look at him differently. And it's her support (that he constantly says is misplaced and that he's not good enough) that really inspires him to keep improving. Also, he is making strides to keep TBX running as a successful business so he definitely is a multi tasker. Adds to his charm perhaps. The rest of the book gets pretty intense and I think you guys are really gonna love It! Either way, for My opinion though Parker and Kelsey are on the list of my favorite book couples ever! Ashley has truly outdone herself with this book!

    Craving You is the second book in the TBX series. I would recommend reading Breaking Free first, then you can see how Colt and Brealynn's story intertwine with Parker and Kelsey's storyKelsey Whitten is a gray eyed beautiful girl who is going to college with her best friend Brealynn Sutton. Kelsey had one explosive night with Parker Taylor four months ago that she is now regretting. She knows she is having feelings for Parker but it couldn't be love because happy endings don’t exist. The prince never shows up to save the damaged princess.Parker Taylor with his brown eyes and brown hair and panty dropping smile goes to college with his brother Colt Taylor. They also ride BMX bikes for the family business TBX, which one day the brothers want to run. Four months after having great sex with Kelsey he finds out that her and Kelsey's best friend, Brealynn are moving in. How can he handle living with Kelsey, she is like his addiction that can't come true because love just sucks the life out of you.Taylor and Kelsey both had a emotional childhoods that have left them scared for life. Can Taylor and Kelsey break down each others walls to rebuild each others hearts and let love in?Ashley Christin did awesome job with her debut novel Breaking Free and Craving You was just as good if not better. Ashley knows how to show all sides of her characters. I can't wait to see what happens between Jamie and Tim. I hope that Blaine gets his own story soon.I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review. Review by Melissa K for HEA Fanatics.

    An ARC was received for an HONEST ReviewReviewed by LeeI really liked this book part two to break me. This story was about Kelsey and Parker . Their on again off again lust fest . However both have strong feelings for each other but both have been put through the ringer a time or two. Kelsey due to her upbringing and parker due to the loss of his mum .Parker a BMX rider and college student is brother to Colt also a BMX rider and they both make the cover of magazines. Parker knows his good at what he does but knows that colt is better and his ok with that he wants to take over the family business TBX. Kelsey is Braelynn's best friend /sister, she's never been in love because she believes it doesn't exist . Although the feelings she has for Parker are in fact love she fights it tooth and nail, even to the point of sabotaging a possible relationship with him. Kelsey got on my nerves doing this, I hate the back and forth, to and fro between a character and what they want in the relationship with someone they know they love. But in saying that, Ashley Christin is a awesome writer and brought out the best and worst of each character and as much as i hated the worse, the good made up for it. I'd definitely read more from Ashley Christin, her writing is open honest funny and raw. I give craving you 4 stars

    Kelsey and Parker have one strong addiction...Craving You picked up right where Break Me left off! All the awesome characters from the first book are back, plus a few more. We learn more secrets, fall in love, run in fear, conquer our dreams and nightmares. What more is needed? And now a bit about the story...Kelsey has moved in with her best friends boyfriend and his brother. Having a nice house to live in should be way better than the dorms, right? Except when said brother is Parker Taylor. Her body wants him, again. Her mind knows there is no such thing as a happy ever after. It should be perfect, a live in friends with benefits, but she is scared of her cravings.Favorite passages: - “Come on, sweetness.” I encourage, not beg. Let’s get that straight. I don’t beg. - “But I want you to want me just as bad as I want you.” I stare at him, dumbfounded. “I want you to crave me, and I always get what I want.” - “...there’s more to this world than what’s troubling you. That even though you may feel certain feelings, the world moves on. As gut wrenching as life may sometimes feel, beauty still exists.” - “Don’t you know two lost people can find each other and make a home?” - ‘Dark secrets always find light,’ - Brealynn’s knight in shining armor sh¡t is rubbing off thick on me.

    I really loved this story. Kelsey Whitten has no desire to trust a man so she doesn't do relationships. She's had no problem keeping men at arm's length, until she meets Parker Taylor. Whenever she's around him, she can't stop being a witch, and/or keep her clothes on. He's her bad habit that she can't stop being addicted to. Parker has never had to chase women, as they come to him. But the moment he and Kelsey hooked up, he can't get her out of his head. One minute he's got her naked, and the next he's trying to get over her when she pushes him away. Both have strong feelings for each other, but neither is willing to admit to it. WOW! The back and forth from these two characters had my heart racing cover to cover. The character development is great, as two stubborn people evolve while getting over their past to trust each other. A fast paced, frustrating, and well written storyline flows smoothly. Simmering chemistry kept leading to explosive sexy scene goodness, and well placed humour had me rolling. Ashley Christin's easy writing style kept me on my toes, while frustrating me with the back and forth. I CANNOT WAIT to read more from this author, so I happily HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Holy hotness on a bicycle Batman! Kelsey and Parker give new meaning to “riding a bicycle”. This story was amazing and the sex was incredible. I might just get wet thinking about it! The storyline was wonderful and flowed effortlessly. I loved the emotional upheaval that both characters were going through. It gave both of them that next level of depth that I crave from characters. I like to know there is something underneath the pretty packaging. Kelsey struggles with “becoming her mother” and so she closes herself off from any kind of relationship. Parker doesn’t back down though. He fights for all he is worth. The chemistry between these two is exceptional and very fun to read. I am looking forward to the next book (maybe two?). Reviewed for FMR Book Grind

    Great readI can happily say that this book was so much better than the first. Don't get me wrong...I liked the first book, but this one was more graduated than the first. Parker and Kelsey had issues to resolve and they couldn't get it together long enough to work them out. Their constant issues were back and forth starting in book one and continuing through half of this book. Luckily there were a lot of other characters that had something to say, where the angst was partly eliminated. However, in order to go through their relationship woes, you got to learn about how they resolved their problems together. I'm actually looking forward to the next book.

    For the most part, I enjoyed this book. The writing was spot on, no major grammatical errors were noted and it was a decent premise for a story. I guess my only issue with this book was the....teenage like back and forth dramatics of the relationship dynamic. I did find myself very tired of Kelsey's poor opinion of herself and how she would seem to purposely set out to ruin what she and Parker had. This is definitely more of a YA book, in my opinion.But with that being said I did feel that the story itself, the BMX aspect, was decent. I will most likely read the next installment.Overall, I gave it 4 stars!

Filled with passion and angst this is a red that is a must have for every e-reader and book shelf!I loved how exciting his life is with being a BMX rider but the pain he held with in from his past just melted my heart even more for him.Kelsey was a smart and tough nut to crack for Parker giving him hell and mixed signals. A journey for the both of them and us, which is what I look for in a good read.

    Oh the trials and tribulations and on and offs of a relationship.Parker and Kelsey are both tainted with parents who have problems with their love lives. This has caused them both to swear off love for ever.They fight their attraction and keep pushing each other away. I liked this story but it was a bit too on and off for me. It didn't make me want to pick up my kindle and read to desperately find out how it all ends.Not much drama either to keep me entertained.But, it's a good little read.

    Received an ARC for an honest review. Ashley Christin brought the ingredients for an action packed, captivating and off the charts chemistry in Craving You. You get laughter, sexy times, and honesty from all the characters. Your attention is caught from the beginning and you just need to hold on until the end of the ride. Can Parker and Kelsey survive the ride and the addiction for each other? Sometimes addictions ca be hard to kick.
