Release Date: June 27, 2018
Genre: Young Adult

Synopsis: Under suspicion for a crime she watched him commit, Lana will pay for her silence. Her new lawyer strikes a deal, sending her to a boarding school in Vermont. It’s supposed to be a second chance. An escape from a dead-end life in Sherling. Except Lana doesn’t want to leave those who depend on her behind. 

Lana is convinced she has nothing in common with the sons and daughters of celebrities and politicians who attend Blackwood School. But she soon finds out, that they're all delinquents... just like her. Theirs is a world of contrived headlines and publicity facades, and Lana's unabated honesty is a keen contrast to their lie-filled lives. She finds herself with new friends, just by telling the truth. 

But not everyone is welcoming. Someone is out to destroy Lana, and she has no idea why. The longer she stays at Blackwood, the more dangerous it becomes for her and everyone she cares about. And it will only get worse when Lana discovers the truth.

Review:Knowing You by Rebecca Donovan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 Once again Rebecca Donovan delivered another unputdownable installment in the Cursed series. Lana is shipped off to a luxury boarding school for juvenile delinquents. Who can she trust? Lana is “cursed” with having to tell the truth about everything. She’s brutally honest, but are others being truthful with her? It’s a wild mystery! What an ending! I need the next book NOW! 

Excerpt:
“If I tell you, they won’t come true.”  I stuff a mound of cake into my mouth.
Lily releases a small tinkling laugh. “Do you believe that?”
“Do you believe they’ll come true at all, no matter if I say them out loud or not?”
“I think we always receive what we deserve, and belief has very little to do with it. It has more to do with our character, and how that balances out on the scales of good and evil. Can’t have one without the other, right?”
I look at her curiously.  “But isn’t good always supposed to win in the end?” I can barely function, forget about contemplate karmic balance. And we’re going down a strange and windy path right now. Because I know good doesn’t always win. 


Meet Rebecca: 
Optimism seeps from every pore of my body. I truly believe that what's supposed to happen... will! In that regard, I don't know how to give up; it's not part of my biological make up.

I'm a passionate (and some would say, overly enthusiastic) person. I learn by doing (and have been burned more times that I'd like to admit), but I will always throw my entire self into whatever I do - fail or succeed.

I think this is evident when I write, leaving nothing behind and spilling it all out on the pages. I give it all to my readers - love it or hate it.

The path I'm on is very often my own, veering off the beaten path at the sight of something more interesting or captivating, getting caught in the vines and thorns in order to experience the beauty and intrigue others often pass by. And I always meet the most interesting people along the way...

Kason and Adaline.

From the moment they met, they started to fall. Neither of them predicted just how far the drop would be, though.

Loving Adaline was all Kason had ever wanted to do. But layer by layer, he started to unravel, forcing Adaline to face an addiction she never could’ve imagined.

This is what happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond the loving.

REVIEW OF CRAVE:
Crave: Part One (Crave Duet, #1)Crave: Part One by E.K. Blair
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 I binge read this heartbreaking story of love and addiction. This book was highly addictive in the best possible way and had me craving MORE! OMG that ending.... Full review to follow.

UPDATED REVIEW:
Crave is totally different from EK’s other dark and twisted adult books.  Crave has a YA'ish/New Adult feel.  Ady and Kason are both high school aged young adults dealing with some very adult issues. I have to keep my description very brief so that I don't spoil this book for anyone.  I want you to go in blind. Let me just say that this book isn’t like anything out there.  This coming of age romance tackles some complex physical and emotional issues. Addiction is never an easy topic to write or read about. EK injected her signature story telling abilities into one hell of a raw and unique read. This book was highly addictive in the best possible way and had me craving the second book in the Crave Duet before I hit the last page.   That ending…
