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.

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.

The pathos is the central heroine of the story. For The uphill ardous task , that is recovery ,The courage has to come from within. Ady is not in a state of togetherness of her mind yet. Shes going through the stages of post trauma
The toughest being bargaining, cause she bargains her heart to the abuse. She literally crushes it under her own foot.
I was flabbergasted, hated Ady so much. She had so much support and love all around her, but I guess her trust was broken and she lashed out and recoiled from it.
Kason Stratton. O. M. G. Whenever he came to the scene, I cried my heart out. This guy has suffered so much .. his own horrific past and now Ady withdrawing, it's like God is stabbing and then twisting the knife ! He's seeking solace and reprieve but it comes wrapped with shame and guilt
I cried and sobbed and bawled for him
I kneeled and pleaded and begged with him
I crumbled, I went to hell, I lost myself after him

"I’m so alone, so miserable, so damn pathetic. Shameful, uncontrollable, and possibly even unlovable. Maybe it just took her this long to realize it.
My body is its own machine, and I gave up on it a long time ago. It calls the shots, not me. It drives me from one high to the next. When I’m not high, I’m consumed with shame. And when that happens, I drink to become numb. And it’s somewhere between those three emotions that I bury myself in work and school."

He's a fantastically created tragic hero. One you want to cuddle, hug and envelop in your arms. 
EK has angst pouring out of her proverbial pen. The discerning grief just casts a gloomy grey cloud over the story and excruciating pain is just soaked with tears. 
The central theme is courage and conviction, to fight your demons, you have to leave the dark and step into the light , as excruciating as the steps maybe. Just one foot after the other !
I'm not a YA / NA fan at all. Yet this story touched me. Especially Micah and Kason.
It's a cry fest so get the tissue box handy people.
