Release Blitz + Review -- Crave: Part Two

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.

Where do I even begin? The second half of this duet has completely drained me of all coherent thought. Emotionally, I am exhausted. This conclusion has given me one doozy of a I'm in no hurry to get rid of.

The mental anguish and heartbreak I've experienced in this book are of epic proportions. The way my heart was ripped open and mended has completely changed me in a way you can only begin to understand if you read this book. No, scratch that. EXPERIENCE this book. This love story. This second-chance at...well, everything. Because it's nothing short of an experience.

"I love him so deeply, but this fear of mine reaches even deeper. The fear of him finding out and having to watch his love for me morph into blame and contempt." 

Kason and Adaline face their darkest days in this story...together and apart. I was equal parts furious and distraught as I flipped the pages. The selfishness and seemingly selflessness were almost unbearable at times. I wept. Openly. I wanted to walk away, I wanted to be done with this emotional rollercoaster. Yet, I kept going because I just had to know. I still have questions. I still want more. It may be over, but to me, it may never be.

"We're unfinished." 

This isn't just a tale of a man and woman who find their way back to each other after years of separation. No, it's deeper. Darker. And so much more complex than that. This is a story of boundless love that transcends beyond time and miles. There are no limits to this kind of love, the bone-deep, pulse-pounding, infinite connection cannot be ignored...or erased. It can only fade...until the craving gets too much and someone gives in.

"And that's where it happened--somewhere between the breaking and the healing, I fell in love." 

Walking away from this story, I feel I've not only learned just how addiction of any kind can affect everyone involved, but what strength and determination it takes to not just share in your deepest shame, but to seek help. And to stick with it. To learn and grow from it. To beat it. Taking back control is half the battle...both Kason and Adaline learn that the hard way.

Pick up this duet. Find out how Kason and Adaline maneuver through life, love, loss, and's a tender topic with hard-to-read scenes, but what you get from it is so much more than just that. You see what true, soul-bending, heart-wrenching love is like. And how much it hurts sometimes.
