Craved by Stephanie Nelson : Guest Post, Review, & Giveaway {Bewitching Book Tours}

Today I am hosting Stephanie Nelson, author of Craved, on the blog for a guest post, review, and Kindle Giveaway. Enjoy!

Craved Casting Picks, by Stephanie Nelson

A lot of people ask me if Craved was to be made into a movie, who would my ideal cast be. As an author, who created characters out of thin air, no movie star looks exactly like what I had in mind. But If I had to choose……

Megan Fox would play Gwen Sparks

Matt Bomer would play Aiden Blake(Sigh!)

Sara Paxton as Fiona Bennett

Taylor Kitsch would play Micah Reynolds

Ryan Phillippe would play Ian Despereaux

Camilla Belle would play Penny

That is one very attractive cast! Thanks for stopping by Stephanie!

Gwen Sparks just wants to live a peaceful life in the supernatural town of Flora, but from the moment she read about the first murdered witch, all hope of peace was abandoned. Possessing the rare ability to read the memories of dead, she volunteers to help catch the culprit behind the string of drained witches. Gwen has to team up with the one man who broke her heart, deal with a ghost who pulls her into the deathly realm at will, and a fight off the advances of sexy but frustrating vampire who not only craves what runs through her veins—he wants her heart.

Review by Kate
CRAVED, by Stephanie Nelson, is a fantastic start to a new paranormal series. We are introduced into a world of witches, weres, and vampires. Gwen Sparks is a witch in the small paranormal town of Flora. Using her awesome gifts she is thrust into an investigation to find out who is draining witches of their blood. Along with her new vampire beau and were ex-boyfriend she struggles with more than just a criminal mastermind.

I honestly did not think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. Nelson created a cast of characters and a setting that sucked me in and held me there until the end. I connected well with Gwen and I loved her connection with Aiden. Their chemistry was steamy and I really rooted for them as a couple.

Nelson truly has a talent for creating a great story with the perfect balance of ups and downs to keep a reader interested. I did, however, notice that she did a lot of 'telling' versus 'showing' and sometimes that took me out of the story for a minute but did not hinder my love for the book. She is an awesome storyteller and I am excited to read the next Gwen Sparks book after the semi-cliffhanger in this one.
