February 26, 2018

Title: Secret Lucidity
Author: E.K. Blair
Genre: Student/Teacher Forbidden Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2018


This wasn’t supposed to happen.
But it did.
This wasn’t supposed to be my life.
But it was.

I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn’t see my way out of. That was, until him.

I never could’ve imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty.

The only problem?
He was off limits.

But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences.

My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story.

This is wrong. But when the whole world is spitting its wrongs at me, what the hell is just one more?
Secret Lucidity by E.K Blair rocked me to the core. It's depth and briliiance was gripping, I was mesmerized throughout my extraordinary journey with Cam and David. It was a ride I will surely never forget forget because the intensity of the FEELS I experienced with them was one that left me wanting and needing for more
...Because that's what love it; it's the same as death - it's a separation from reality. It's a moment suspended in time, and when it's over, that's it - your moment is gone. All you're left with is this - this righ here - the mourning of what will never be again.
Gahhhhhh!!! One book. One sitting. Rivers of tears. Angsty rollercoaster ride. Intense Love. That's what it takes to ruin me. Yes! I am ruined by Secret Lucidity. It took me 4 hours to finish the book, but the feels it left will linger for long, of that I'm sure. It was beautiful and painful at the same time yet I can't help but basked all of it because I can't help not to. I really did not intend to finish it that fast. I couldn't even say it was fast paced, all I know was, I was reading and basking all the feels with my heart in knots, my anticipation so high and the level of angst felt like it's killing me. Tears were just flowing and I was sobbing like a baby and my fingers just kept on turning the pages anxious to what may happen next, curious as to how the story will end. Teacher-studen romance? Gahd! It was just tip of the iceberg, this story defines what love is made of. The beautiful, the ugly and all the in betweens. If I'm not married right now, I would definitely say, "This is how I want my love to be!" 
"How do you do that?" 

"Do what?" 
"Make me love you like it's a necessity?" 
Cam and David's story wasn't your ordinary teacher-student relationship. Sure, the forbidden vibe was there but more than that, it was the depth of the story that made Secret Lucidity addictive. I did not expect the flow of events. I was reading something I did not have an inkling where the author wants to take me. I was just reading and feeling it. I am just devouring it and boy this journey was edgier and touching and taboo all the same. The character's development was exceptional. Their pain was my pain too. Their happiness was my happiness too. And the love they felt for each other, was mine all the same. I felt it. I connected with them. And it was the best feeling. It was poignant, it was raw and it was REAL.

I don't want to go into details about the book in fears of spoiling you. I just want you to read it but read it with your heart and mind's open. Feel each words and lines, savor each moment you have with them. Honestly, I can't think of Cam and David and not cry. Their love story is just something you don't want to forget. It's something you want to hold on to despite the overwhelming feels of pain and sadness. Because in the end, it's what makes their journey beautifully satisfying. It was EUPHORIC.  
To EK Blair, thank you for this journey! very well written and perfectly delivered. Secret Lucidity is one of a kind and so are you.

If it’s one thing that I’ve learned from reading anything by e.k.blair, is that this woman is not afraid to go there. Her stories are always somewhat controversial in a sense, but it’s thought provoking, sexy, mysterious, and there has never been a moment when you’ve finished reading that you didn’t wish for more. When I saw that this was going to be a forbidden romance, I literally had to brace myself because if I’m being honest, this author scares the shit out of me!! Her words will lead you on the edge of a cliff and without ever meaning to, you freefall into the unknown. 

Very Vague Review ahead 

Being the only child to two loving parents and the star swimmer of her school, life couldn’t be any more better than it is right now for Cam. Closing out her Junior year on a high note with her loving boyfriend and best friend, Cam knows that her final year in high school is going to change her life. But what she didn’t expect, was to have it change so devastatingly drastic and life altering. They say how you deal with grief, will determine your life’s course in the blink of an eye and for Cam, this was just the very beginning.

“The world has thrown me the worst curveball ever. Annihilating the life I once knew and forcing me to go at it alone". 

I really have to applaud this author in going in depth when it came to the grieving process. There were certainly A LOT of things that I didn’t agree with when it came to the coping mechanism, but I felt the pain and sadness and I truly wished that I could’ve taken some of it away for Cam. Her entire world was turned upside down in the blink of an eye and the only thing that she was left with was pain and dirty looks.

“In a world where we’re both struggling, what if this is where we're supposed to be? Right here. Right in this very moment. Because this is the place where our broken pieces have settled, connecting perfectly without any gaps". 

I loved how David became someone who looked out for her but took care of her when she needed it the most. Their relationship was forbidden and scandalous in it’s own right, but their connection and understanding of each other was simple and pure. They loved in the dark and were outcast in the light but through it all, they LOVED.

I know that this story will not be everyone and that’s ok. If you’re like me and you crave forbidden, then this one will be for you.
