Title: Am I the Only One
Author: E.K. Blair
Genre: Thriller/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 10, 2020
Blurb

Desperation had a flavor.

It was all Emma could taste as her life in Washington DC started to crumble
before her.

In a city filled with prestige and American dreams also lay political fallacy
and corruption—corruption she would soon find herself indulging in.

Emma would have done anything to save herself from the downfall, gone to any
length, sacrificed her soul if needed.

What she didn’t realize was that someone else was more desperate to save their
own life and that the worst was yet to come.

Spoiler Free Review
***
I have been a huge fan of E.K. Blair’s novels since the beginning when she released the Fading Series in 2013.  Her novels range from angsty new adult novels which consist of emotional subject matter to dark twisted romance loaded with suspense, intrigue, and dark subject matters.  No matter what genre or subject matter she chooses, her gift of story telling shines brightly and keeps her readers glued to the pages.  The one thing all of her novels have in common is to expect the unexpected.
***
As I began reading Crave- Part One it became clear that this book was not what I was expecting.  In fact it begins as a Mature Young Adult novel touching upon subject matter that is very rarely written in any romance novel let alone in the Mature Young Adult / New Adult genres.  How she handled the subject matter impressed me because it was delivered without the usual preconceived notions or any form of judgement.  She clearly gave her readers an honest view of how this type of addiction affects a person physically and emotionally,  She also gives the reader the perspective from the other side, from the person closest to them and how they deal with someone affected by this problem.
***
The pleasant surprise is that it is not all there is to this story. Crave Part One is a beautiful love story filled with those special wonders of first love.  From the insecurities to the consuming passion, she reminds readers how wonderful first love is. She captured the true teenage spirit, with all the inexperience of mature relationships to the naivety that love can fix it all. It’s something none of us ever forget and will always cherish.
***
 Once again that is not all there is to the story but rather a fragment of it. Crave- Part One  is the first part of  a duet and is going to span the college years and adult years.  It’s only the beginning.
***
I fell in love with Kason and Adeline.  They were both bright young people with good heads on their shoulders.  They both were surviving the lives they were born into and suffered from some form of parental neglect. Although their lives were vastly different and their reactions were different, they found a common ground that brought them together. Adeline was lucky because she had one supportive parent that was a positive influence on them both.  Aside from their homelife, they built a solid, normal teenage relationship that was pretty healthy until it wasn’t.  Where these two wonderful kids go from here is the beginning of their life journey that tests their inner strengths and need to hang onto each other no matter what.  Their stormy journey is just beginning.  Their lives are just beginning to shatter.  Their hearts are going to be shredded into a billion pieces.  I have complete  faith in E.K. Blair,  I know she will rebuild these two into strong adults with hearts made of steel but full of love.
***
This title is so appropriate for this duet.  The moment a reader begins the first book they will CRAVE more.  I can’t wait for Crave- Part 2 to release in October.

It’s been said the longest echo ever measured lasted 75 seconds, but I can assure you, this will last much longer. The bang deafened the world around me, muting everything into nullity, allowing the reflection of its destruction to live far beyond its intended life.

Bang – Book 1

“BANG is one of the most talked about books of 2014, quickly earning E.K. Blair acclaim for her ability to weave a dark, twisted tale of revenge that will keep you on the edge of your seat till the last word.”

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.
But I’m not innocent.
I haven’t been for a very long time.
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.
Vanished.

I never even had a choice.
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.
Until now.
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only.*
