“You might have run away, but you never left me.”
OMG, EK Blair brought out her full emotional arsenal with the concluding part of this duet. Heart meet wringer with EK Blair cackling as she turns handle. This was another one of those books that left me emotionally drained, completely and utterly. This was one heck of a roller coaster; the highs were adrenaline high but the lows were emotionally terrifying.
“I get one thing and wish for the other, only to get that and wish for the opposite. Then I grow frustrated and pray for an escape I can’t seem to find. I’m stuck in perdition’s labyrinth with no way out.”
EK Blair has that knack of tying her characters to my fragile heart strings and having followed Ady and Kason’s story in part one and what with that ending, I knew that this was not going to be a walk in the park. What I didn’t realise was just how hard EK Blair would make it. EK Blair threw every single emotional bone in her body into this book and the reader feels it, every twist of the knife hurts like a mofo.
“I would’ve done anything to be in that nightmare with you just so you wouldn’t have had to be alone.”
After the ending of part one, we all knew what had happened to Ady, I’m not going to mention the word, just in case someone hasn’t read it yet, but it was this defining event that paved the way for book two. Here EK Blair excelled herself, the pain and agony that bled through the pages literally destroyed me. The anguish, the guilt, the ramifications were soul destroying, there wasn’t just one victim in this book, the reach was far and wide. At times, it was torture to read, but the more you fell into the dark abyss that Ady found herself in the more entrenched in the story you became. I couldn’t put it down.
As with any EK Blair read she makes you work for it and angst is her middle name. I loved these characters but some of their decisions did leave a lot to be desired. Frustrating and infuriating, but unless you have been in that situation I don’t think you can truly appreciate how thoughts and feelings, no matter if warranted, can warp your judgement. Yes, I wanted to bash heads against brick walls, but deep down I could understand somewhat even if my heart and soul didn’t like it one little bit. This was typical of EK Blair though, the road to her happy ever afters are fraught with obstacles, curves and bends, peaks and troughs, I lived and breathed them and was emotionally exhausted by the end.
“You were made to be healed and loved by me.”
My only gripe was Kason and his addiction. Introducing this affliction had me all excited in book one, but I never really felt we got to the crux of it in this book. I really wanted his back story explored, maybe as he healed, but we never really got that either. This book centred around Ady, but I would have loved to have had more Kason at times. Kason was such an interesting character, so broken in his own right, that I just wanted more of him. The relationship that Kason had with Ady’s mum brought me to tears and I was so glad that he truly had someone in his corner.
“I’m so alone, so miserable, so damn pathetic. Shameful, uncontrollable, and possibly even unlovable. Maybe it just took her this long to realize it.”
I loved this conclusion even though it killed me to get there. Kindles were thrown, tears were shed, but that is the sign of a good book. I ran the gamut of emotions, but I expect nothing less from EK Blair. Another great story from this author.
In book 1 we were informed about Kason’s sexual addiction and his choices with coping. In book 2 we learn that two characters that shared a similar situation could choose different forms of coping mechanisms to deal with the stress that this experience caused. We also learned that both characters were terrified to acknowledge their issue for fear of hurting others and by doing so they had no control over their lives.
Adaline’s process was a challenge for me to read. This was a struggle for me as I wanted to reach inside this book and express my views with all these characters. I wanted to play the fixer. It’s hard to read about characters that make choices differently from the way you would. I felt helpless because it was sad, emotional, and disheartening.
With themes of self-hatred, abuse and toxicity, Crave led these characters into dark places. Both characters were buried in shame with both having moments of weakness and strengths.
The supporting characters played an intricate role in supporting and comforting those dealing with the pain. I was pleasantly pleased with the support these characters exuded in offering sound advice and comfort. This book concludes Adaline and Kason’s journey at living with a brokenness inside them.
