Description: Bakery owner Annabelle Sparks’ business is booming ever since she won reality TV's Cupcake Wars. The one thing deflating her happy soufflé? The extremely sexy Kaden Chance only sees her as a best friend–and Annabelle wants so much more. After waiting a year for him recognize their chemistry, she’s giving up and dating other people.
What she doesn't know is Kaden's heart doesn't actually beat. He's not human. Heck, he's not even from Earth. To retain his intergalactic immunity, no one can ever know he is an extraterrestrial. But when Annabelle starts dating, something strange happens to Kaden's unmoved heart: it begins to beat. Now he faces an impossible choice—tell Annabelle the truth and be deported–or lose his last chance at love.
Disclaimer: I received a review copy (via NetGalley) in exchange of an honest review. (Not my usual NA content . . .)
Characters/Plot: Kaden is quite the character. The cover does his description justice. Annabelle is sensible, I suppose, up until you realize how attracted she is to Kaden, who is an E.T. Right from the start, you learn that they both have feelings for each other, more than best friends should. And then things get steamy, like a lot. Also, you get attached to their relationship, and when the road gets bumpy, it hits home.
My Honest Opinions/Thoughts: I bloody cried towards the end, when Kaden lied to Annabelle. My heart was wrenched from my chest, and I bloody L♥VED it! Totally worth the read for those of you who like Sci-Fi and steamy romance. And hot-headed best friends who will kick a guy's butt for breaking her girl's heart.
I have read a lot of EntangledPub's books, mainly Crush and a few from Embrace. But I did not know what to expect from Crave, and I was not disappointed. Under His Skin was a great read and I am sure I will read it again.
