RELEASE BLITZ/REVIEW - Crave: Part Two by E.K. Blair

Title: Crave: Part Two
Series: Crave Duet #2
Author: E.K. Blair
Genre: New Adult Romance/Coming of Age
Release Date: October 16, 2017


Weeks became months, and months became years. Each day nudged Kason deeper into his addiction. Each memory of the girl destroyed fed the craving for what he could never have again. 

Leaving a life-altering first love behind, Adaline tried moving forward to find love and trust and happiness. Pain eventually faded, wounds slowly healed, yet scars were forever left behind.

But some scars feel like kisses.

When the shattered pieces of their hearts are forced to meet again, the two of them must decide how much pain their love is worth enduring.

This is what happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond the loving.

The first book was good, but this book was amazing. I can't remember the last time a book was able to pull on all my emotions...I found my heart squeezing, tears falling and hoping for a HEA that I wanted. There were so many times where I suspected that something would happen or hope it wouldn't happen is more like it and E.K. Blair swooped in and surprised me with something even better than I could have ever imagined. Dealing with depression, sexual addiction, abuse and abandonment issues is no small feet and she does it so seamlessly. 

When the last book ended I cried out, "NOOOOOOO!" and cried for Adeline. And to see how she deals with what happened was the most heartbreaking thing to read. I can totally understand the way she handles it, but I was quickly reminded that she was eighteen...seeing and feeling the world around her with eyes of an eighteen year old. I don't think anyone is emotionally equipped to deal with what she did, but it is even worse when you are young and still formulating who you are as a person. It rocked her world and she made choices that forever changed her and the people she cares about. 

This book will rip your heart out, make you ugly cry and still manage to give you hope. It is raw, real and heartbreakingly beautiful.

Crave: Part Two is the 2nd book in the Crave Duet and what a doozy it is.

Trying to find the words to describe what this book did to me is nearly impossible but I'm going to give it the old college try. From the very beginning, there was pain. So much pain. Ady's thoughts were so difficult to read but you could just FEEL her anguish, her pain, her guilt. What she went through is most women's nightmare and to not remember any of it made it even worse. Her inability to allow others to help her during this time just kept feeding the darkness she was completely mired in. In her attempt to shield Kason (because no matter what, he is always what mattered most to her), she lost herself entirely and did the unthinkable.

"My imagination is my worst enemy. It recycles my fears like a never-ending revolving
door to which there is no escape."

It is hard to really get into all the ins and outs of this story without giving so much away. I literally could not put the book down. I knew I should have been working, but I could not wait to find out what EK had in store for me next. The roller-coaster ride of emotions throughout this book kept me glued to it. I cried...oh how I cried. I laughed. I sighed and I swooned. This story is not only about Ady and Kason, but about all the people in their lives who did the best they could to bring them back to the light. I had some major WTF moments...not where I judged the characters or the author but where I simply did not see THAT coming...or THAT...or maybe THAT. I had an ending in mind. We all want that HEA. The ending that I perhaps wanted was not what I got...but what I got was so flipping beautiful.

Can people who are so completely tormented by both their pasts and their present ever make it out of the darkness that controls them? Whether through addiction or action, the pain is real and EK Blair brought me there right into the midst of the pain and destruction but she also brought me through to the other side to healing. EK takes a few very difficult subjects and treats them both with so much class and love that you almost wish the story would keep going. You feel for the characters with your heart and soul.
