Crave: Part Two (Crave Duet #2) by E.K. Blair


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 out of 5 stars

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. Without Adaline, he is alone and has no more drive to get better.

Days turn into weeks, and the weeks turn into years. But the craving for each other never goes away. Kason and Adaline aren't done.

I really enjoyed this book, but a part of me wanted to shake Adaline. If she made different choices, a lot of pain could have been avoided. I wouldn't say this was my favorite series by E.K. Blair, but this was still a very good read.
