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.

~ 4 Emotional Stars ~

Crave : Part 2 takes off right where we left off in Part 1. I have to say I loved that about this story because there is no time lost. I also really loved that we got to grow with these characters in this part. In Part 1 we only read about them in high school, in Part 2 we get to see them travel through the years of college and then going into to the real world after school is finished.

I knew after reading Part 1 that Part 2 was going to be an emotional rollercoaster and pretty heart wrenching, and I wasn’t wrong at all. This book will definitely have your heart going in all kinds of directions. My heart broke, but then got put back together only to get heated and I wanted to do was throw my kindle. Even though I went into this book guessing what was going to happen, and I was correct on some of it, EK Blair still took me by surprise with the direction she took with these characters.

I can’t explain what I mean by this because I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone. I also can’t discuss this storyline without spoiling Part 1. Just know that you are in for an emotional and wild ride with this story.

I thought this was a great conclusion to Adaline and Kason’s story. Their journey to finding happiness is not an easy one and it has many ups and downs. This is definitely a marathon and not a sprint.

I will admit that I liked Part 1 better than this one only because we get more of Kason and Adaline together and we also got more of Kason’s POV. In this book the focus is more on Adaline’s journey and dealing with what happens at the end of Part 1. Now don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed this book and would 100% recommend this book/Duet and if you have read the first book you NEED to read this one. I just wasn’t sucked into this book like I was with Part 1.

As with the first book this story was so well written you couldn’t help but feel everything the characters felt. I felt their happiness, the sorrow, the anguish and of course their heartache.

EK Blair is such a wonderful storyteller. I look forward to reading more books by her in the future.
