Publisher's Summary

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.

Way Too Dramatic!😢 and plot is pathetic!👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This book had so much potential but unfortunately the author saw fit to make the main female character, Adaline, a selfish, spoiled brat totally destroyed Kason, the hero. So she gets raped and what? Instead of telling her boyfriend, Kason, she acts like a bitch and eventually breaks Kason’s heart by leaving him. She eventually ends up engaged to his best friend? Seriously? She is the absolute worst human being around!

What could E.K. Blair have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She should not have made Adaline into such a selfish bitch. Kason deserved someone better than that tramp!


What about Jacob Morgan and Elena Wolfe ’s performance did you like?

As always their narration is perfect!

Any additional comments?

If you want to read a romance book in order to hate on the female love interest then this book is for you!👎🏼

Addictive 😜

I couldn't decide who I wanted Adaline's HEA to be with. R.K Lilly made it hard to choose. Regardless of who you root for this series is worth the listen. The writing and narration are absolute perfection!!

Oh My God!!!

Beautiful... Elena & Jacob was amazing. The story stole my heart! Some points got so intense that I started to stop reading but I couldn’t. Coming out on the other side was so so wonderfully beautiful. I truly loved their story and didn’t want it to end!!!❤️

Dealing with addiction...second chances

EK Blair broke my heart into pieces. I felt Adeline’s pain and I felt the emotional turmoil of these characters. EK taps into the human side of this emotional turmoil quite well. She expressed feelings of pain in a way that most can’t even talk about.

Overall: Crave part two is about second chances. These characters got in my head. I suppose it’s the emotional turmoil that grabs at me. I almost forget that these are characters in a story because the emotions are raw and honest.

Crave part two is an entirely different story than book 1. I wouldn’t even say this one begins where part one ended due to the circumstances that transpired. It’s about new beginnings and second chances. It’s about finding common ground with mutual understanding.

Story:
When one young girl takes the weight of the world onto her own shoulders the weight becomes too much where she turns to the person she has always trusted. People come and go into our lives for a reason. When we find what we need to heal from one we grow stronger taking back control. Then that strength is used to help others when they need that strength. It’s a give and take.

I kept waiting for one of the boats that Adeline counted to match one of the boats visible from Kason’s window. Some tell from the name giving perspective to a moment. I also kept waiting for closure about Liam. With Adelaide’s mother a lawyer I thought somehow he would find himself in her court room. I hoped for an epilogue with Micah.

Narrators: Elena Wolfe narrated Adeline’s voice. Jacob Morgan narrated Kason and Micah’s voice. This was a dual performance. Elena’s performance was brilliant. Her tone and sound was perfect. The more I listen to her performances the more I enjoy listening to her. This was not my first audiobook with her narrating and it won’t be my last. As for Jacob’s performance I envisioned an entirely different tone and sound for Kason’s character. Both performances had great sound quality.

Wow, what a turn!

I honestly didn't see that plot twist coming. I didn't think the story would take that kind of path. I usually don't care for love triangles, but at the same time, it needs to be done well. Because if not, it'll turn me off and I don't enjoy the story as much as I wanted. Thankfully, this wasn't one of those.
Part 2 immediately starts where Part 1 leaves off. It's also been a few months since I read the first part. I still remembered alot of what happened, so I knew going in, what had happened at the end. I was actually shaking my head at the end of book 1 because I saw it coming and said "oh boy... Here we go".
Ady did drive me crazy for the majority of the book. But to keep in perspective, she was a college freshman (and before the last few chapters in part 1, a high school senior)... So it's kind of to be expected she's going to make some "not so great choices". But at times I just wanted to shake her and just say "CONFESS AND LET IT ALL OUT! YOU WILL FEEL SOOO MUCH BETTER. I PROMISE. IT WILL GET BETTER!!". Maybe not THAT dramatic, but something to that effect. ;)
I loved the audiobook- I think it was done fantastically. Both narrators NAILED emotions! I love when narrators can really make a story come to life... And that's what I think these narrators were able to do.
You have those books that yes, its an audiobook... Yeah, it's a great audio... But then you have those that really capture the emotions and feel of the story. This was one of those. I can only imagine Part 1 is similiar to this one (I just read the e-book, so I can't compare the audios for Part 1 and 2).
Overall, I love E.K. Blair's books. There's only 2 books I haven't gotten to yet (one being her newest release). But I love her writing. Definitely not for everyone as she usually has tough subjects.. And a trilogy that is VERY dark in my opinion...
Another amazing book from E.K. Blair.. I'm excited to catch up!

A Very Emotional Story!

This was a very engaging and highly emotional story. I spent most of the book being unhappy with all the heartbreak and poor choices being made by the characters but I suppose that happens in real life all the time as well. I didn't see how this was going to end happily for everyone or maybe even anyone, but the ending was better than I anticipated it would be. Both narrators were very good, but Jacob was amazing at showing Kason's wide range of emotions. I will definitely listen to this series again and would recommend it to anyone.

Crave - the title says it all. You will be hooked!!!

Amazing Read!!!!!
As always EK Blair has me in complete awe with this fantastic story of first loves and second chances.
After the conclusion of book 1 and the way things ended with Kason and Adeline, I wasn't sure how this would play out.
I absolutely loved it though.
I hated that Adeline found comfort and healing in Micah when Kason wanted to be there for her from the beginning but I loved how it all turned out.
Beautiful writing. Amazing storyline. Creative layers and heart-pounding chemistry.

This book was amazing!
I loved every moment of it!!!!

Highly Recommend!!

The narration is fantastic!!
So emotional and consuming!!!

Shredded!!

OMG- I looooove this book. I debated on getting it bcz I was a little bored with the first book about 1/2bt bcz EK Blair is one of my favorite authors - not to mention that I love BOTH narrators, I couldn't pass it up any longer. First let me say, Jacob Morgan KILLED IT with the emotion in this book. SebYo doesn't even come close to the intensity Jacob portrayes as Kayson. Sorry- not sorry! Gosh he was soooo heartbroken; I was too! Made me wanna slap the shit outta Adi! Honestly, I didn't like her character in book 2 at all. SHE (and Kayson's addiction) was the cause of him not having any friends. I get why she pushed him away but she should've confided in Kayson and trusted in their love but chose another route. For some reason I still feel like I'm missing something from what happened to her. I really hope there's another book in the series. Trent and Micha deserve their own story. Anyway- this book had me so conflicted about the choices the heroine made and who was hurt in the end. IDK- it's fiction but definitely a good freggin book!

him with the acting.

A Love Triangle

Having listened to Crave Part One I knew I had to listen to Crave Part Two. This is a story of young love that is wrenched from each person's hands and the direction that each of them takes in an attempt to heal. One person chooses the 'love' of her best friend and the other person chooses his own nemesis, until a tragedy forces them to reconsider their true feelings for one another.
I found E.K. Blair's story telling powerful. This was a love story with passion and at times it was raw and powerful. Combined with the brilliant narration from Elena Wolfe and Jacob Morgan, I was drawn into this story and couldn’t put it down.
The way the Author has ended Crave Part Two leaves, in my view, the option to take this story to a third part. I enjoyed this story and would definitely recommend this read Parts One and Two for the complete experience.
