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.

As a politician’s wife, Carly Montgomery was committed to being by her husband’s side and forgoing her own career aspirations. Though they’ve been happy for years, she now suspects infidelity. But Carly needs answers before she can move forward with what she’s rightfully earned and that’s where college student, Emma Ashford, enters a world with high stakes.

“Pushing against him, I search for comfort within his hold. It’s the craving to simply belong when I’m so lost.”

From the beginning,

Whoah!! Now this is the E.K Blair that I’ve missed!! Cunning, thrilling, eye opening, heartbreaking, and oh so exhilarating!! This author held back nothing and when it came to giving us a complex story that was so messed up, so damaging, you had no choice but to hold your breath for the entire read and exhale slowly at the end.


Two women from two completely backgrounds with an endgame that will change the course of each other’s lives. If you want something in life, you have to go get it yourself

Emma Ashford had her life all planned out but when her carefully built dreams crumbling down brick by brick, she was desperate for an out. Along came Carly Montgomery who could provide her with what she needed. But it came with a price that could change both of their lives for better or worse.

I could connect to both Emma and Carly who were in similar but separate situations. I liked seeing how both of them reacted when forced into

A savagely clever thriller filled with twists and turns, intense emotion, and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page! Add it to your TBR!

One of the lowest hanging premises in psych-thrillers is to make the female lead an unreliable narrator since it then gives the ensuing twists and reveals more shock-value.

Likewise the reduction of women into deranged wives or psychotic mistresses with zero agency or money, who then either get saved or killed by their men. It's misogynistic and the holy grail of all cliches.

Am I the Only One overflows with cliches, still, I liked it and would have read it in one sitting had it not been for that

The absolute thrill that comes from reading Blair's witchy, twisty reads is hard to articulate because they're books for the heart. A broken, bleeding, contorted heart, but heart nevertheless!!
EK has always brought us hard hitting, jaw dropping, psychological thrillers which belie your senses. Unputdownable reads with greyish brush strokes, they're hard to figure out.

WHAT. DID I. JUST READ??? Just kidding....I know what I read. It was a slice of the brilliant mind that is EK Blair.

Talk about an adrenaline rush!!! Holy cow, I'm on a high right now after reading this one and I must say that I loved it. LOVED IT. I have missed this depraved, creepy side of EK Blair for some time now. Her writing is glorious and has been for some time - I thoroughly enjoy it!! But this book, this storyline

Pun ahead and definitely intended! "Am I the Only One" who felt like I got thrown over a cliff at the end and all those dangling ends offered nothing to hold onto?

Yep! E.K. Blair did it -- immediately pulled me into this web of deceit, lies and worse, and then kept me breathless awaiting a gift from the gods proving that one of these characters, someone, anyone in this wicked story deserved to survive.

At this point, I'm going to step away, maybe read this menacing masterpiece of unscrupulous d

Am I The Only One is E.K Blair and her ability to fuck with your mind at it's finest!

Now onto my shortest review not because I am afraid I'll spoil you but because of the mere fact that there's no amount of words best decibes this book. Admittefly too, I have no idea how to pen what I felt towards the book. ;)

Oh Em Gee!! That was my first thought after finishing this psychological thriller.

This book explores the lengths someone will go to protect oneself, not realizing that in the process, they are slowly destroying themselves. What makes this story unique, is that the two main characters both experience this in their desperate need for survival.

With a sweeping kiss to his cheek, I seal the decision to make the man I once thought as my savior into my enemy.

Addicting psychological thriller. I was completely suckered into the whole storyline. This brilliant writing deserves 5 stars, but I just can’t. I can’t get over that ending. OMG.! Read it, but go in blind.

I don’t even know how to describe let alone review the book I just read!!! Nothing I say will do this story the justice it deserves.

All I can say is that it was mind blowing, jaw dropping and totally addictive. E.K. Blair totally blew this one out of the water. I think this is my favorite book of hers to date!!

Am I the Only One is an all encompassing, intriguing and captivating story. I knew right from the beginning that I was h

Wow! This story gripped me right from the start! Two desperate women caught in a web of deceit. Two very different circumstances leading them toward each other.
I’m utterly speechless yet have been left with so many emotions and scenarios playing in my mind hours after finishing a book that literally held me enthralled and which I read through in hours!
Well developed and intriguing plot, two complex female characters, and two endearing male characters...loved Luca! And Matthew!

My mind is still reeling from this book.
There is so much suspense and craziness. Everything I thought I had figured out was up-ended at each turn. This story kept me guessing. It made me uncomfortable, angry and shocked in all of the best ways. I haven't felt this way since reading Verity by Coho.
I loved the characters and hated the characters. It was such a confusing situation for my mind to be in because I found my feelings were changing from page to page.

Wow so much to love in this book. If you have not read Bang (Black Lotus, #1) by E.K. Blair get that book too.
Mrs. Blair just brings thriller and suspense to a whole new level. I loved this book. I can't go into details, but it did not end in a HEA, nor a cliffy. It was the thrill at the end that made this book.

So many complexities and substories woven together. Yum

Try it, it will put a smile on face in quite a few places.
Desperation has a flavour, a face a soul and a heart which beats frantically and its beat is oh so so fast so fragile so... desperate

When I first saw a new release by Ms Blair I put it straightaway on my tbr list and proceed to pre order it, just like that, no question asked no info no blurb nothing at all, it’s EK Blair we’re talking about.
When it was time to read all I saw around were “go into this blind” the blurb didn’t give much away, actually it didn’t give anything away sooo I did just th

My first ever book read by E.K was Bang, how I was entranced with each book in that series! Years and books later including some deliciously addictive YA stories EK has become a favorite of mine, a go to, dance of happiness when hearing of a new book she’s coming out with and counting and checking my kindle for days until it’s beautiful cover and words are upon my screen.

Errrrrrr where is the rest? What the hell!!! You seriously cannot end a book like there another one? Nothing is resolved. Yes, you could use your imagination, and yes, that last chapter I already knew was going to come, but what the resolution whatsoever. I just don’t get it. I read a lot of crime thrillers and this is definitely one of those, but you always get an ending. Not left hanging. I’m just at a loss for words because that is ridiculous.

I hadn't read this author in a very long time and I picked just the right book for a comeback to this author.

Very well written. Amazing storyline. Intense at every page turn... and a plot twist I didn't expect.

I had a few theories of how I thought this would end and none of them were right. LOL. I love it!!!!

Well that escalated quickly. What a mind trip, all of it. I’m not sure where to begin or what to say without giving too much away. We get two POVs Carly and Emma with a few others at the end. It flows nicely together and leaves you with more questions. So many lies and betrayals. If you are looking for a read that will keep you up late at night this is it. I do wish we would have gotten more and I'm hopeful that maybe we will. **FINGERS CROSSED**

Well I sat with this for a bit and I still don't know how I can review this without Spoilers. I've been waiting for another thriller from my Favorite Author E.K. and she DID NOT disappoint! Just when I thought I knew where things were going EEEEEK! So many twists and turns. The main Characters were Emma, Carly, Luca, Tripp and Olivia. It begins one way like I said. I thought I knew where the story was headed. I was totally wrong!

EK Blair has woven a brilliant thriller that does not disappoint. Politics, lies, power, money, and a whole lot of suspense. They are all so effortlessly combined in this circle of events that'll blow you away as they unravel. This novel will make you grip the edges of your seat unable to stop yourself from the anticipation so you frantically turn the pages to see what twist happens next.
