Blog Tour: EK Blair's "Crave (Crave # 1)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for EK Blair's "Crave (Crave # 1)."
Amazon UK:


Kason and Adaline.

From the moment they met, they started to fall. Neither of them predicted just how far the drop would be, though.

Loving Adaline was all Kason had ever wanted to do. But layer by layer, he started to unravel, forcing Adaline to face an addiction she never could’ve imagined.

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

Review: Surj 

When it comes to EK Blair, the only books I've read of hers are the "Black Lotus" series and "Author Anonymous" both of which were as crazy and as f**ked up as you can get. Mind blown doesn't even come close so I guess when I read the synopsis of "Crave," I was expecting something along the same lines. Well what a surprise this was because "Crave" was nothing like those books, nothing at all and to say this author did a complete 180 when it comes to her writing would be an understatement. I've got to say though peeps, the story I got as a result of this change in direction was phenomenal and yes, it absolutely blew my mind. 

My truth is so unworthy of the girl my heart has started attaching itself to. 
When I think about how pure she is, it only reminds me of how dirty I am. 

"Crave" was an unexpected read that I'm dying to talk to the world about it but I can't. There is so much I want to say but I feel there is a reason why this author chose to be vague in the synopsis. She wanted to give her readers that element of surprise and boy did she do that. From the sub genre to the characters, from storyline to the twists, I loved what felt like such a natural course for Adaline and Kason's story. But as much as I've said this hasn't followed in the same footsteps as some of this author's other books, please don't think this will be a walk in the park kind of read. Hell no. This story played on my mind so much so that I found myself wide awake at 3am thinking about the characters and desperate to know how it would all end. 

"This feels like a dream. You feel like a dream."
"Then lets never wake up."

In terms of the characters, it was difficult not to love each and every one of them. They were full of so much heart and soul and they weaved their way into my affections so very easily. I felt their joy and sorrow, their anguish and heart ache, their insecurities and vulnerabilities, their guilt and shame, their highs and lows, god did I feel such an overwhelming melee of emotions. And then when it all went tits up, I felt like my heart would never beat again, that feeling of being on a knife's edge a constant. 

The two of us stare into each other's brokenness, and I swear I can
feel him breathing through the holes of my wounds...

I love the way this author covers subject matters that are... let's say "unique" for want of a better word and she definitely did that in "Crave." She absolutely put her own stamp on the subject matter that's for sure, making this book as unique as they come but also making it unpredictable so amen to that. 

Another job well done EK Blair. The writing as always was impeccable  the words stamping themselves on my emotions. The visuals ensured I felt like I was a fly on the wall experiencing this book instead of just reading it and the story line, well what can I say other than there was so of meat on the bone and plenty to sink my teeth into. I absolutely loved "Crave" and cannot wait to get my mitts on the final instalment in this duet. Hands down a ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

She understands me when I don't even understand myself. 
She's forgiving when I refuse to forgive the things I've done. 
And she gives me hope in the eye of hopelessness.
