New Book Review: 'BANG' by E.K. Blair

by EK Blair

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence. 

But I’m not innocent. 
I haven’t been for a very long time. 
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.


I never even had a choice. 
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs. 
Until now. 
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only as some scenes may be particularly disturbing.**

5 Stars!

I feel like I am missing a link or a friend…..or a beating heart. Yeah, that happened. My heart was ripped out and I want to hate Ek for making this so addicting. This book was like a drug. I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t get enough of it! I absorbed every word in this book…


I have never read a dark book and I have never felt like this at the end of a book. I am seriously……lost. I want, nope….I NEED something. Anything.  A lifeline would sure be nice…..but holy hell!! I have never felt this shocked at the turnout of events that happened in a book. I want to cry….but I don’t really cry with books. I want to purge these emotions I am feeling by talking it through with someone because bottling it up would be painful…..but I don’t want to spoil someone else’s rollercoaster of necessary emotions. I want to just curl up in a ball and rehash everything I just read and dissect it. There was so much going on, so much to think about and so much to question…..

Damn you Ek. You are simply amazing. This book is unlike anything I have ever read….and when it was coined a psychosexual thriller, well that was pretty precise. I am shaking my head as I am trying to formulate my review….yes, it appears I do this after I read a book that affects me on this level. This book won’t leave me. I can’t process what I am feeling in my weary mind. I am shaken to the core, my mind is overloaded, my heart is crushed and my soul is wounded.
I have promised a NO spoiler review, which means that the synopsis you read up there is the depth of what you will get from any reviews at this point. But I will say that this book will test your limits beyond anything you have ever read.

This was a single POV book, but it was written with such depth and description that it truly encompassed ALL sides to every one of the characters. The characters were believable, the storyline was deep and the outcome was gut wrenching and heartbreaking!! It moved me and it tore me up, it made me feel for her and made me despise her….I will never be the same.
I am told there are more books in the series…..but I don’t even pretend to understand how that is going to work out. I have my theories, but with the way I was tossed around with the twists and turns in this plot, I won’t really entertain those theories because everything I thought I knew, I truly didn’t. Everything was tested by this book and I am honestly shocked and stunned by the outcome.
Ek is my superhero…..her mind is an amazing place to visit, because this book was beyond extraordinary; it was so unique and beyond comprehension. Just……wow. Amazing. Phenomenal. Fanfreakingtastic.

5 mind-numbing stars. Nothing compares…..nothing.
