Review Source: eARC

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.

This book totally wrecked me. I don’t think there was a dry Kleenex in the house! I can honestly say that I have never cried so darn much! But don’t let that scare you off. This duet is engraved in my soul. I haven’t read anything quite like it before. Part one ended in one hell of a cliffhanger and that alone made me cry. Thankfully part two wasn’t far behind and it picked up right where Ms Blair left us in awe.

Ady, oh this poor girl! She had everything going for her. She had a wonderful boyfriend and they both were going to the same college, until one night it was all taken away.

Kason has already been through so much in life but Ady made it all worth pushing through life for. Moving away for college isn’t easy on anybody but with Ady by his side made it easier. Until one night, the sanctuary he once knew is slipping through his fingers.

This was a hard story to read. At times, I felt as if I wanted to shake Ady to bring her to her senses and then bear hug her to take all of her hurt away. Kason, oh my heart!! This book was truly a rollercoaster, a heartbreaking, life changing, oddly beautiful rollercoaster. Ms Blair sure does know how to break your heart and slowly, meticulously put it back together. 

OMG! Really? Ms. Blair....I need to have a word with you!!! Seriously? Do you have any idea what you have done to me? I mean you literally took me apart and put me back together. This book!!! This story!!! OMG!

I hope you guys are prepared because y'all are not gonna forget these books for a long time.

Adaline & Kason. WOW!!! This one picks up right where we left off at the end of the first book. Oh and let me tell you CLIFFHANGER!!! For real! Anyway, so something happens to Adaline at the end of the first book and things go downhill from there. I mean there was screaming at the kindle, grabbing the phone and messaging Heather (review above) and quite a bit of cussing. OHHH and lets not forget about the tears and the box of tissues!

However, I pushed through and I'm SOOOO happy I did. With certain authors like Ms. Blair you just know she is going to put you back together at the end. The road was bumpy, gritty, dirty and heartbreaking at times but isn't the best stories like this? Even life is like that sometimes.....the hard road is the one with the best outcome.

The writing is excellent. The story off the charts. The characters I wanted to hug & slap at almost the same time (so they are perfect). Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Very Highly Recommend!!!!

E.K. Blair, takes her readers on an emotional roller coaster with her dynamic and intense writing style. Noted for her ability to create fleshed-out characters that will evoke a realm of reactions, you can be assured that her stories will linger with you far beyond the last word.

A former first grade teacher with an imagination that runs wild. Daydreaming and zoning out is how she was often found in high school. Blair tends to drift towards everything dark and moody. Give her a character and she will take pleasure in breaking them down, digging into their core to find what lies underneath.

Aside from writing, E.K. Blair finds pleasure in music, drinking her Starbucks in peace, and spending time with her friends. She’s a thinker, an artist, a wife, a mom, and everything in between.
