Crave by Melissa Darnell

Goodreads Description:

Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail.
For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back…different, and suddenly he can't stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences….

My Review:

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I am not a big young adult fan but this is one I would recommend. 

There is a girl, Savannah, who's life was changed in the 4th grade when all of sudden her best friends deserted her and she became a persona non grata. Then when she was 15 she gets another shock, she's a Dhampire, as if things couldn't get worse! She has to be a freshman in High school with special powers, like telling what emotions people are feeling an whenever she looks a boy in the eyes they act all possessed and crazy. She misses her best friend, Tristan even more when all these new things start to happen. Tristan is Clann and even worse the presumed next ruler of the Clann, though not if he has anything to say about it. Tristan helps her out of a uncomfortable situation and then they start spending more time together, even though it's forbidden by the Clann. Savannah finds out more about herself as does Tristan and during Sophomore year they break the one major rule, that they should stay away from each other. 

Their relationship is very well written and I love the dream visits. I absolutely love the revelations at the end. It's not quite a cliffhanger, which is good because I HATE cliffhanger endings, but it definitely leaves me wanting more and I will have to get the next in the series to see what happens to Savannah and Tristan.
