Crave and Claimed, 3

From the moment Evil sees Noelle, he has to have her. She’s out of a job, and he needs a PA. She doesn’t have to know who he really is, how his name instills fear. He owns the city, and soon, he’s going to own Noelle.

Noelle knows exactly who Evil is. When she’s attacked, Evil’s protection goes into overdrive, and she has no choice but to fight him if she wants to be free. She pushes his buttons, but he can’t let her go. He needs to make her his, and the only way to do that is to knock her up.

Evil can’t rest until he knows his enemies will leave Noelle alone. He has to protect her, especially when he learns she’s pregnant. But as soon as she tells him, he disappears.

Was Evil’s need a lie, or will he surprise her with the family she has always dreamed about?

Be Warned: anal sex



Evil sipped his whiskey. The burn didn’t help to rid his body of the arousal he’d been suffering for the past few hours. None of his men were around, so he didn’t have to hide his reactions to Noelle. Everything she did was fucking enjoyable.

The way she ate, the few appreciative noises. It made him think of how good she’d look with her lips wrapped around his dick. This didn’t help to stop the arousal. All this did was make him even more fucking horny, and it had been a long time since he’d been with a woman. A long fucking time.

Having a drink in that bar had been the wrong thing for him to do. The day he met Noelle, all other women ceased to matter to him.

Tilting his head back, he closed his eyes. Noelle was right. The two men who’d gotten to hurt her before he made it to her were dead. He took great pleasure in ending their sorry asses. It hadn’t been hard to do. They’d hurt Noelle, so they had to die. He hadn’t been able to make it slow and painful. It had been painful but had ended far too quickly. More quickly than what they deserved.

Evil didn’t need to open his eyes to know Noelle had entered the room. He lifted his head and turned toward her.

She stood in the doorway, and as if to torture him some more, she wore a white negligee, complete with a white silk robe. He’d purchased them for her. In fact, all of the clothes in the room she was staying in had been bought with her in mind.

“You’re drinking?” she asked.

“I’m … taking the edge off.”

Noelle didn’t like drinking. The night he’d first seen her, when he asked the bartender what she’d been drinking, he’d responded with a soda. Noelle never drank. Another insecurity she’d gotten from her deadbeat dad.

She took a step into the room, then another one.

Evil couldn’t help but look at her body, appreciating the way she moved. The sensual movements drew his gaze, making it impossible for him to look away.

She wasn’t wearing a bra. With each step she took, her full tits bounced to the movement.

He expected her to take a seat, but instead, she stepped right in front of him. She placed a hand on his thigh, leaned over him, and then took his drink from him.

“That’s enough,” she said.

Evil didn’t fight her taking the drink, but as she stepped away, he couldn’t hold back anymore. He grabbed the back of her neck and pulled her in close.

“What are you doing?” she asked.

“You’ve taken my whiskey from me, and might I point out, it is damn good whiskey. What are you going to give me in return?”

“Your liver.”

He couldn’t help but laugh.

She was so close. Of course, it was because he’d forced her to be this close, and all he wanted to do was kiss her. To smash his lips right against hers, to deepen a kiss that wasn’t even happening.

“My liver and I are good with drinking,” he said.

“You don’t need to drink,” she said. “Talk to me.”

She didn’t pull away, and he hadn’t let her go.

The bruising had really come out in the last few hours. He hadn’t gotten a doctor to help her. Noelle had demanded that he help her. So, he’d taken care of her cuts. There was nothing he could do for the bruises.

“Those men died too peacefully,” he said. “Is that what you want to hear?”

She sighed. “If that’s what you need to say.”

He let her go, and Noelle didn’t go far. She sank to her knees, running her hands up his thighs, and then back down again. His dick was already hard before she came into the room, and now with her this close, touching him, it wasn’t helping.

Staring into her blue eyes, he couldn’t look away. Didn’t want to look away. Cupping her cheek, he ran his thumb across her bottom lip. She didn’t pull away.

“Noelle, I want to fuck you,” he said.

“I know.”

“Then you need to get up and go back to your room before I do something you’re not going to like.”

She kept her hands on his thighs.

He stared at her and waited. She lifted up, and he watched her as she came in close. He felt her as she put one knee on either side of his legs, straddling him.

“Tell me what you want, Evil.”

He put his hands on her ass and drew her down so that she rode against his cock. “I want you, Noelle.”

Thank you for NetGalley for the eARC. I really enjoyed my time reading this story. I have not heard of this author before, but this title really satisfied the itch of the lover who would do anything for the main character. I highly recommend if you would like a smutty story with a strong female main character. I will definitely be checking out this author's other works.

Satisfaction guaranteed!
Written by Kmhall on 13th Dec 2022

Whenever I see a new release from this author she is automatically a 1 click buy for me and this book wasn't any different. I love that you get darker romances from this author but that she doesn't go too deep and you still get to see the romance shinning through the darkness. Now when reading the blurb for this book I couldn't hold in my excitement as I love a good mobster/crime sub genre. This book had a big 'mafia' vibe which is one of my favourite type of romance but in saying that it wasn't a dark as some I have read and i think that is due to how the male character is different when it comes to the female character and they share a lot of interactions. Also in saying that this book still had those alpha/possessive/protective vibes we all crave and that is one of the things that I love when it comes to this type of story. The storyline had me hooked from the beginning where it opens up with a scene that takes place between the male and female character so it gets straight into the story and you get to see and experience their relationship as its beginning to change into something romantic instead of just boss and employee. Even though this book wasn't a novel length story, the story was the right length for what the author wanted to create (even if I still craved more of these two characters) it was a complete story and it didn't feel rushed or like it was missing anything, all in all this was a very satisfying read and I was very contented after I had finished it. I cannot wait to hear more like this from this author... but I'm sure I'll happily devour anything she writes in the future!

Quick, fun read…
Written by Diane R on 13th Dec 2022

This steamy novella felt like a tantalizing reading bite! Evil’s protectiveness knew no bounds. He was going to protect Noelle at all costs. Give her everything she ever wanted. And more. The drama was real and it was spectacular! I wanted it to be so much longer to hear all the details. More of the banter! More of the backstory. It felt like being dropped into a song already playing and I need to know everything! This worked as a standalone but now I need them all! Maybe there is more of this story already told…

I've read several books written by Sam Crescent; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

Noelle and Evil
Written by Redfaeryrose on 30th Nov 2022

I found the title intriguing and curious. Now, I got my answer. I liked the story and I even liked Mr. Evil. He was obsessed with our Noelle but he was gentle with her. He may have done bad things, theirs is a bad world, but there is still something good in him. He made Noelle's dreams came true after all

Need more!

Great Book
Written by Danee on 30th Nov 2022

Crave and Claimed is a great series and this is the third book in it. It's a short story but gripping and it holds your attention from start to finish. The author Sam Crescent has written a good story and the characters Evil and Noelle were great and the chemistry and attraction between them is perfectly described. I can recommend this book but also the other parts to read

I enjoyed this story quite a bit
Written by Cindy V on 30th Nov 2022

Noelle has bounced from job to job, leaving a difficult childhood behind is just looking for someone to care for her. When crime boss Mr. Evil sees her, he wants her and makes her his personal assistant. He pines for her but doesn't make a move until she is attacked. They have lots of sex, while Mr. Evil protects her and finally admits how he feels for her. I enjoyed this story quite a bit but the end does feel a bit rushed.

Evil can be good
Written by Kwallywoman on 30th Nov 2022

Noelle hadn't had a great life. She barely made it out of her parents home without being sold for the next fix. Now she is in Evil's grasp. Can she stand to be in that grasp or does things she tell him make him run? Great read. Cool name for a person, Evil.

Fun and steamy
Written by LBing on 30th Nov 2022

This was a fun and steamy romance that jumped out of the gate on page one and never looked back :) Noelle and Evil were such a great couple together and they sure sparked chemistry off the pages. She was strong and he was obsessed - that's a great combo for and OTT romance with a fab HEA. I have to say I loved the epilogue that finished things off beautifully for me. I enjoyed this story and look forward to what's next by this author :D

Is Noelle finally about to get the family she dreamed of?
Written by Nicole P on 30th Nov 2022

Awesome read worth 5 stars. Evil & Noelle's story is intense & there is an attraction simmering there just waiting to boil over. I love how Evil is kept on his toes by Noelle as she continually tests him. Will they get their HEA or will Evil not say those 3 magic words to Noelle?

Absolutely Delicious
Written by TattedMomma3350 on 30th Nov 2022

This book has it all. Angst, broodiness, deception, intrigue, and romance. The main male character is the most unlikeable likable male EVER! There are some things he does I do NOT agree with, but some I’m in awe overrrrrrrr. This book is absolutely delicious.

Not Evil when it comes to Noelle

This was one of my favourite books to date from Sam Crescent. It had a lot of elements in a book that I like. Some darkness Insta attraction and love ❤️ Smart Heroine Possessive Obsessive Protective Hero Lot’s of steamy scenes An epilogue with a HEA

A good book
Written by Pat L on 24th Nov 2022

A quick read but had everything you want if you are looking for it in a book. Suspense in that Evil the crime lord is looking for the people who are wanting to harm his PA. Noel who had been working for Evil for months tells Evil that the bruise isn’t that bad and she is okay. He sees red. After everything he does he cannot be tough with her anymore and they end up in bed together. His problem comes when he wants to keep her confined and to her, that is like a prison, so after walking in front of the guards naked he starts to understand that she is not one to be taken lightly. This was a good book with some really hot bedroom scenes and kitchen ones as well. This helped the story and made Evil not so bad. You get to see a different side of his character when he is with Noel and the two of them together make a good team. The ending is really good and her character is very good. I found this to be a good book.

Great read
Written by Sua on 24th Nov 2022

Evil and Noelle’s relationship was so steamy and deep. I love that Noelle was able to push Evil’s buttons and get him to open up to her and how Evil’s priorities were keeping Noelle as safe as he could.

Sweet evilness
Written by Diana Acero on 24th Nov 2022

I really enoyed reading this story. How the good and the bad mix together taking care of each other. And working each insecurities together but without knowing. Love the characters too much.

An alpha male romance with plenty of spice
Written by Sarah ES on 24th Nov 2022

Wow!! Evil is kind of an anti hero because he is an alpha male who takes what he wants despite what anyone says. There was definitely some bad boy vibe's coming off of him that made for some really good steamy love scenes filled with extra spice!! Loved it!!

Written by JJ on 24th Nov 2022

The play on names was good. Their story is quick but full of the stuff we come to know from this author and it is a bit cute-ish. I received an ARC for an honest and voluntarily review.

Loved it!!!

Wanted by Mr. Evil was a quick read for me but oh so GOOD!! Loved reading about Noelle and Evil. Awesome book!!

Fast-paced read with intense chemistry
Written by Tammy S on 24th Nov 2022

This is the 3rd book in the series but it can be read as a standalone. When Evil sees Noelle, he knows that she will be his. He hires her as is PA and when she is attacked he will stop at nothing to protect her. Fast-paced read with intense chemistry, loads of drama, emotion and steam. I liked it.

Lots of sex
Written by Barb K on 24th Nov 2022

Noelle has bounced from job to job until she walks into a bar one night and meets Evil. As soon as Evil sees her, he knows he has to have her. Evil is a “ crime lord “ and he hires Noelle as his personal assistant. When Noelle is attacked, Evil goes into protection mode and moves her in with him. He is determined to protect her even if he has to take all his enemies down. I know this is short but the book is short and I didn’t want to give anything away. The beginning feels like you are dropped in the middle of the story. Lots of sex. Noelle just wants someone to love her. Evil has never had anyone love him and doesn’t really know what to do. ( I hate the word “ spunk “ in place of semen. ) * Voluntarily read and reviewed this for NetGalley *

A rather sweet, quick read
Written by Jane H on 7th Nov 2022

Noelle and Evil. A rather cute story..yes, an odd way to describe a Sam Crescent story. Evil felt an insta attraction to Noelle the first time he saw her. He gave her a job. She was attacked by his enemies and to protect her he moved her in with him. From there, the story moves quickly as does their relationship. Sexy times, talking about their childhood, a misunderstanding and a lovely epilogue.

Written by Jilllovesbooks on 7th Nov 2022

Great story!!! I love Sam's angsty, possesive, alpha men. I loved Evil and Noelle. Especially the beginning with the flirting and innuendoes and then trying to figure each other out.

Wanted by Mr. Evil by Sam Crescent
Written by Spender of Money on 7th Nov 2022

Quick, fun, spicey, darkish and ‘hits the floor running’ with page one jumping right in. I love when an author can successfully do that, taking the reader with them so quickly. This is part of the Craved and Claimed series, and can be read as a stand-alone. I mean, I did go back and buy the rest of the series and my morning is pretty well mapped out now, but a stand-alone never the less. This book, this series, is a great way to dip your toes into the Sam Crescent backlist. I received a copy of this book and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

The best of the bunch.
Written by Mary S on 7th Nov 2022

Wow this was actually a great read in the Crave and Claimed series I’m going that is was the best of the bunch. It had a bit more of action a bit more of a story and even as I didn’t love so much the name of the male character he was the best alpha protector Noelle could have.

A great read
Written by Adrianna L on 7th Nov 2022

I love Sam Crescent's world building and characters. The beginning feels like you are dropped in the middle of the story. There was pretty steamy smut in this, and it was really a great read eventually they both get their happily ever after.

Loved it!
Written by Michelle C on 7th Nov 2022

This author writes just the kind of “I’ll do anything for her” heroes I love. Completely OTT and obsessed with their women. This had a quick paced storyline with interesting characters and a heroine who had a great backbone. Throw in a breeding kink & I was a happy reader. Loved it!

Never touch what belongs to Evil
Written by Bookbunny on 7th Nov 2022

Noelle knew all about Evil. She knew what kind of man he was. She still wanted him though. Evil has had Noelle working as his PA for six months and has yet to make a move. He knows once he does, he will never let her go. When a thug roughs her up, he isn’t about to let that stand. No one hurts Noelle. I have to say this was fun. Noelle was pursuing Evil and boy was she making sure he knew it. She was a bit unsure at one point but she knew she would get her man. Evil was on point. That man kept Noelle safe after one incident. But you can’t keep a woman caged. These two were hot for each other. SO must fun. Loved it. Short but sticky sweet.

Another wow book from Sam
Written by Shortbec on 7th Nov 2022

Noelle works for Evil, sha has been his assistant for 6 months now. Evil has kept Noelle as his assistant to keep her close she is his and he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

Thank You NetGalley for the eARC. I read this as a stand alone because I am a huge fan of the author. It was OK as a stand alone I Just wish I had the back story. For Xmas i will be buying myself everything this author has ever written ha ha. If you like a man to take charge and protect you at all costs (like I do) then this is the book for you!

Great story
Written by PHOENIX96 on 2nd Nov 2022

Evil was instantly drawn to Noelle the first time he saw her, so much so he offered her a job as his PA to keep her close. Noelle knew what type of man Evil was yet she wasn't afraid of him like most would be, she was drawn to him just the same, but can Evil keep her safe in his world? And keep her his? Well written packed with steamy scenes, desires, action and more!

OMG! Author is Amazing and so is this story!!

This book. It’s going to play with you. Hard. And you are going to be so glad you make it to the other side of this terrific ride. The twist is superb, the storytelling is chilling, the talent Sam Crescent displays is outstanding.
