Read my early review for the soon to be released Author Anonymous with E.K. Blair

If there was ever a time when I said you must read a book,
Pay Attention.

I know many of you have seen images and the buzz floating around the interwebs about E.K. Blair and her soon to be released new book
Author Anonymous.
(Pre-Order links below)

Well I am super excited to be able to share with you my 
***Spoiler Alert*** 
I loved it! 

So take a look, TBR this baby PRE-ORDER NOW and get ready for one of the most anticipated release of the year...

A TRUE STORY told through the voice of New York Times Bestselling author E.K. Blair.

She’s an author.
She’s a mother.
She’s a wife.
She’s a fraud. 

A woman marked and bound by her own deceit, this is the astounding tale of how one choice knocked her world from its axis forcing her to battle through a year of scandal and betrayal, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. 

This is an intoxicatingly risqué stand-alone true story tangled in lust, heartbreak, and contrition.

Ok. Let me first explain how this is going to go. This being what you are about to read from me. There are times when words flow freely from my mind onto the keyboard after I read a story, then there are times where I need to dig deep to pull my thoughts together to form a coherent thought. THEN there are times where I spend days trying to write a sentence and all I do is backspace more than I hit the period key, and I give up trying to write and just lay down how I feel, without care about run on sentences, or the over use of commas.

This is that latter time.

We all know the talent that flows from E.K. Blair. You can google her and find her rankings; you can go to any retail platform and see hundreds of favorable reviews that include phrases like “favorite author”, “must read author”, “brilliant writer”, and other positive words. What I didn’t expect was to be completely enthralled from beginning to end when I opened up my kindle to read the Author Anonymous file that was sent to me before publication. I expected a great story yes, but I didn’t expect to actually feel like I was in this fictional world. Because it’s really a world that I split my own life in half to be in. I felt every emotion that was being told to me. I walked alongside the characters as they walked down the street. I was watching the author character and her assistant sitting at the table at the book signings. I felt every kiss, every thrust, and every graze of the finger. I heard every scream and listened closely to all the whispers. I too had the tears, and the triple beating of the heart, the stomach drop when the truth began to come to the forefront.  I sat and read these words from beginning to end with no break in between for fear that I was going to miss something, never mind the fact that I couldn’t possibly miss any words. I was invested 110%. I came upon the end with sadness and relief, I wanted to keep going but I know I needed to let it go. Author Anonymous is just that good.

I can go back to the original emails I received with the words saying how E.K. Blair felt the need to tell this story that isn’t really her story and I now understand fully the need for this story to be told. Author Anonymous is beautiful as it is devastating and perfect in its execution. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
