Crave: Part One by E.K. Blair
Tanya Rae’s rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
I had read one of her other books and this book is very different from Bang.
I will admit Crave story wasn’t exactly what I thought the book would be about. Oh, and Crave is Part One. Part 2 will be out in October so not a long wait.
It starts out while Kason and Addy meet in high school. Addy is the new girl and Kason while he goes to an elite school he is from the wrong side of the tracks. But that doesn’t matter. Kason also has a secret that he tries to hide until he can’t hide it any more. Of course, I can’t tell you but, it is not the usual kind of addictions you normally find in romance books.
I love Kason’s mother and Addy’s mother too. There are emotional elements to this book too. The ending will get you too! Get ready for the cliffhanger and OMG NOOOOO moment at the end of this book! I can’t wait for Crave: Part 2!!!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I give Crave 4.5 Stars and bring on Crave: Part 2!!!

Crave Part One (Crave Duet, #1) by E.K.Blair Kason goes to an exclusive private school. He is part of the cool kids in high school and is on track to getting a college scholarship. However his close friend knows he is not part of the elite class but lives in the poor part of town. Kason has a secret and he has been able to hide it until the new girl. Kason is very popular with the girls but Adaline is different. He has tried to fight it but he cannot stay away from her. Adaline has just moved into town. Her parents are divorced and her mother is a high power attorney. Her first day of school she collides with a guy that has caught her eye. This is a cute story of two people from opposite lives. She lives in a big house with a pool and Kason lives in a sparse rundown apartment. Kason has to deal with a mother who works multiple jobs just to make ends meet while Adaline has a workaholic mother and a father who is remarried with a new family. Theirs is a relationship of unconditional love. I enjoyed this story from the beginning to the end. I have previous books by this author and I like the way she tells a story. The secret that Kason has I really didn’t see coming and the ending to the book blew my mind. I cannot wait till the next book comes out. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book and give 4.5 stars
