(Crave Duet #2)

4.05  ·  Rating details ·  752 ratings  ·  170 reviews
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.

CRAVE: is ‘Part Two’ of a duet and is not a standalone. You need to read part one first.
This is the conclusion to Adaline and Kason’s story which is spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives.’

This starts off right where the previous book ended. This is Adaline's story, it’s not an easy story to read, but she needs to tell it.

In the previous book whilst at a frat party she was victimised, her drink spiked, waking up with no recollection of what had happened, where she was, or who the guy w

The first book left Ady in a bad place and this book picks that right back up...and continues until half the book! I wasn't a happy camper about this because we trade one depressing thing for another. Plus more unhappy news happens...and then the twist! (but we all saw that coming right?)

E.K. Blair really takes us for a ride with Ady and Kason. It was a lot for these young people to go through and as the years pass by more drama happens. I wasn't sure how she was going to fix things and

Cannot be read as a standalone

This is the conclusion to Kason and Adaline. Adaline is struggling with the terrible events that occurred in part 1, and Kason is struggling with his sex addiction.

The first 20% of the book is about Adaline's emotions. She feels lost, dirty, and alone. To start her healing process, she feels like she needs to start over. A different city, a different scene, a different college.

Kason gets left behind and gives into his addiction completely. With

Crave Part 2 (Crave Duet #2) by EK Blair
4.5 stars!!!

“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.

Crave: Part One MUST be read before reading Crave: Part Two. This review may contain spoilers if you have not yet read part one.

Crave: Part Two is just that, the second book in the Crave Duet about Adaline and her young love for Kason, a struggling addict. Part Two picks up where Part One left off, following Adaline as she faces her fear of what happened at that first party at college and as she runs away from everything. She feels shame and fear, she's failing classes, failing to connect to any

“Maybe we were too perfect, and because of that, we were meant to be pierced by thorns.”

I wasn't a big fan of Crave: Part One, but the cliffhanger at the end was what pushed me to pick up the sequel. I needed answers. I needed to know what would become of Kason and Adaline's relationship. I needed to know if the sequel would be any better than the first book. Let's just say that I may have set my expectations a bit too high with this book. There will be minor spoilers in this review

This book seriously went full circle for me in the emotional department!!! If you read my REVIEW for CRAVE Part 1, you can see how messed up I was after waiting for the next installment. I was D-Y-I-N-G for the next book. This one did NOT fail to deliver on an epic tale of pain, fear, love and devotion. What an emotional rollercoaster!!!

I need to digest it all. The second book is very intense. E.K kicked up a notch on the emotional front. I wanted to kick my Kindle or the characters at a few points lol. Book two was my favorite out of the two. I don't have a book hangover. I think I need a drink though lol. Full review to follow.
There were times I wanted to hug Kason and Ady, and there were times that I wanted to smack them upside the head while reading Crave. Come to think of it, I wanted to drop kick my Kindle!  These

This is the Conclusion to Ady and Kason’s story and it was a good read. The vulnerability was real and raw for these two characters and I felt sorry for them but at times I felt a disconnect because of the decisions that they make. The secondary characters brought a lot to the table and didn’t over shadow Ady and Kason.

Good read!

This is the second in the crave duet.
After where, book one left us I could not wait to get my hands on this book and it didn’t disappoint but my heart hurt most of the way through. I found this part more emotional than the first I think I went through a box of tissues while reading.

Kason and Adaline story is not an easy one. This one was just full of emotion; I think I felt so much while reading this one...

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.

There is so much going through my mind right now. So much I need to release. So here goes:

I don’t know who E.K. Blair is. I don’t know if the E stands for Erica, Ernesto, Emma, or Edmund. I don’t know how I have never managed to actually pick up one of E.K.’s books (though several are on my TBR and at least one is on my kindle). I don’t know why this duet screamed to me- not called. No, screamed at me that I needed to read it. I don’t know why more people aren’t talking about it and forcing it o

Adeline is a victim. In the end of book 1, she's victimised and this book starts from there. The horrific assault she suffers leaves her body and soul shattered . She withdraws in her shell, gets depressed and starts avoiding people. Her mom, her lover, her friends , her classes. And she fails on every count. This is what happens to assault victims.

She’s drifting, and I don’t know why.

Hmmm...not really the ending I was expecting or even really wanted. I'm kind of disappointed in Ady.
Full Review -
This was a hard review to write…at the beginning of the book Adaline is dealing with being drugged and raped. She wants no help and is embarrassed by everything that has happened. She truly believes she has cheated on Kason. That she is no longer the girl he fell in love with.
My problem is the choices that she makes afterwards. After refusing help or any kind of support she turns to

Where do I even begin? The second half of this duet has completely drained me of all coherent thought. Emotionally, I am exhausted. This conclusion has given me one doozy of a I'm in no hurry to get rid of.

The mental anguish and heartbreak I've experienced in this book are of epic proportions. The way my heart was ripped open and mended has completely changed me in a way you can only begin to understand if you read this book. No, scratch that. EXPERIENCE this book.

This book picked up right where the first one left off – thankfully. I was eager to get back to Adaline and Kason’s story, although, I’ll admit that my eagerness was also met with a healthy dose of trepidation and unease.

This book is dripping with emotion. E.K. Blair didn’t hold back. She delivered a story that was raw, ugly, and painful. There was no way around it. With the subject matter and the way the first book ended, this part of the duet had to hurt. My heart broke for the characters, I f

Wow, EK Blair you broke me! I seriously had to walk away from this one for a couple of days; the emotions were just too much for me. I could feel the pain, heartache in these characters and the emotions were carrying over into my real life.

The characters feel so real, I felt like I was going through this with them. It was such a long journey for both of them but Adaline’s avoidance as she struggled through this healing process made this one tough to read. The tears are still on the surface for

With the way part one ended, I knew part two had to be an emotional read. But HOLY HELL, I was not, WAS. NOT. expecting this story to take the turn that it did. E.K. Blair had my emotions all over the place. This truly is a read like no other.

I love/hate/love this story. It absolutely broke me. My poor little heart broke for Kason and Adaline. Adaline suffers emotionally and poor Kason is left to suffer heartache on top of all his other struggles alone and I wanted to hate Adaline for it. Kason

This book starts right of where the first one ended. This is the conclusion to Adaline and Kason story. It’s raw, emotional and very angst. Adaline I have a hate, love feelings towards her. Adaline drove me crazy how she hurt her family, friends anyone you could think of over and over again where I wanted to yell at her myself. Then Kason I felt his pain and yes even he drove me crazy at times until the end when it all came together. Adaline and Kason such opposites but both dealing with there o ...more

This is the second book of an unforgettable duet that I’ve been waiting to read since the heart stopping ending of book one.

This one was different because we now have two vulnerable people. Ady is in pain she’s floundering but can’t bring herself to talk to anyone. Kason is still that messed up young man trying to live with his addiction but without Ady’s support he’s cut adrift and drowning.

I understood Ady’s actions but that doesn’t mean I liked them in fact I was so angry with her at first. C

Crave: Part Two is part of a duet and not a standalone. You must read part one first.
Part Two picks up where part one ends up. Adaline left Kason without explanation and moves away. She hides out by friends and refuses to grét in contact with Kason.
He´s devastated and goes back to his addiction.
Years later they meet again and all the betrayal and pain are a fresh wound again.
Adaline and Kason are soulmates and destinated to be together. But is it really worth the price?
I can´t say that I liked

Great story! I loved Kason and felt every tear and pain he did. He went through so much in his life. Adeline I liked and disliked. She just kept hurting people who cared about her. Micah was a truly amazing man and friend. My thoughts on Micah is that he truly deserves love! I’d love to have a book about him.

I like this author, I really do. I thoroughly enjoyed some of her other stuff. But this one is absolute rubbish (like that?).

This conclusion picks up where we left off with Addy having just woken up from a party with another guy. She struggles with it in the most basic way, blaming herself, not able to see the reality of the event. That was all fine. She keeps it from Kason, because she doesn't want to seem soiled, doesn't want to add to his problems, etc. and the ultimately decides to abandon

E.K. Blair did not disappoint with Crave 2!! After I finished, Crave I was beside myself. I knew Crave 2 would be rough, but rough is an understatement. This was one hell of a tremulous ride! EK took me to hell and back. My heart was pulverized, leaving me exhausted for most of the book. As heavy as it was there were glimmers of hope...

I finished this book two days ago, and I am still dealing with a book hangover. I'm sure that my family and co-workers (I don't recommend reading this book at work) think I'm special because I cried like a baby through about 70% of this book. I was so sad for everyone involved in this book. I am not going to lie, I was happy for Adaline at one point in the book, but then it all went to heck and by the end
