She seems to see through the layers of deception to the primitive heart of him. With her beside him, Al stalks the dark forces that crouch in the city's night shadows.

MY REVIEW

Summary:
Jenna Maloy comes to visit her sister, worried and concerned for her, so when she comes to Philadelphia, she never realized how much her life would change. Al  is having a hard time learning to control his urges and instincts, having only been put into a human body only a few months ago, the hunter in him hard to keep in line at times. So when he meets Jenna, his urge to mate becomes only stronger whenever he is near her. Jenna, is shocked when she realizes what Al really is, and the kind of life her sister has chosen, to help save the world, and despite the dangers to herself, she knows that she will make the same decision to stay with the man that she loves….no matter the cost.

The Hero (Al Endeka)
Al is short for Allosaurus, which is the dinosaur that Al truly is inside. Al is used to being a part of a pack, of hunting, mating, and resting, never having to worry about much of anything, now millions of years later, the modern world is much different than the one he once knew. He isn’t used to all the feelings he is feeling especially when he has to be near Jenna who awakens his feelings of lust and desire.

The Heroine (Jenna Maloy)
Jenna grew up in a family never feeling like she was enough. Jenna got a degree in English Lit and then becomes a journalist. After hearing that her sister Kelly suddenly up and marries a man she didn’t know very long, and being invited by Ty’s boss, she decides to come to see Kelly and meet her husband. However she is soon brought into a world that is shocking and seems surreal and with her strong physical attraction to Al, she starts to realize that she is falling for him despite the danger that surrounds them.

My Thoughts 
 Eternal Craving is the second installment in the Gods of Night series by Nina Bangs. Having already read the first and most recent books in the series, I have always wanted to read this one, so I couldn’t find it in paperback so I decided to get it in E Book form. I have just loved the idea of this series, shape shifters who turn into dinosaurs, definitely a bit different than your usual shape shifting genre. Eternal Craving is a sensational read, with mystery, danger, passion, characters that are captivating and a plot that will draw you in until you addicted to this world that Bangs has created…..A Stunning Read!!!!

My Favorite Quote 
And Jenna was looking at a master. A woman could crawl on her hands and knees to a man with that smile. It was a soul searching, sensual lifting of his lips, all savage beauty and frightening secrets. 

About Nina Bangs

I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in English Literature and a determination to avoid books that induced eye crossing or had tragic endings. The only things I managed to write during those years were research papers.

I taught second grade for several years then spent two years in Dublin, Ireland. A friend and I supported ourselves by singing folk songs in Irish pubs. We weren’t great, but we were young, enthusiastic, and wore short skirts. It was obviously my destiny to be the next Judy Collins. I spent a lot of time poring through music books.

Returning to New Jersey and reality, I taught elementary school until I grew restless again. My cross-country odyssey included stays in Arizona, California, and Texas. Along the way, I indulged my love of horses. No black stallions, but I did have several beautiful Arabian mares. I read tons of books on breeding and showing.

Somewhere between California and Texas I grew addicted to romance novels and cats. The cat’s independent attitude was exactly the quality I admired in my romance heroes. And once I decided to try writing my own romances, I made sure a cat crept into each story.

Texas is my permanent home. I’ve come full circle. Born in San Antonio, I spent most of my life in New Jersey. Maybe the Texas in my blood accounts for my attachment to strong men, fast horses, and wide-open spaces. My love of cats? Haven’t a clue.
