Book Review Double Header: Bang and Echo by E.K. Blair


Title: Bang (Black Lotus #1)
Author: E.K. Blair
Genre: Erotic Thriller, Suspense
Length: 420 pages
Rating: 4 stars

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.**




Title: Echo (Black Lotus #2)
Author: E.K. Blair
Genre: Erotic Thriller, Suspense
Length: 335 pages
Rating: 4 stars

It’s been said the longest echo ever measured lasted 75 seconds, but I can assure you, this will last much longer. The bang deafened the world around me, muting everything into nullity, allowing the reflection of its destruction to live far beyond its intended life.

It will follow me forever, destroying me—destroying you.

You want answers?

So do I.



YaYa's Review

There is not much you can say without intentionally giving away a spoiler, but I’ll try my hardest as this is 2 reviews in 1.

Yes you need to read both books starting with Bang. The first book is where it’s all plotted out. Don’t try and guess what’s happening. It’s far beyond what you may be imagining. Just let it sink in and go with the flow.

What happens when you find out the truth of why you were handed such a shitty card in life? Or what if you find out the person behind all these life events? Do you seek revenge or hope Karma plays a better card for them? These are some of the questions you may want to think about before you read this series. There are some very strong, disturbing context, warning is out there if this is not an easy type of read for you. There is also some great mind-fuckery as I mentioned earlier about not tying to guess what goes on.

This is not a fairy tale. (Maybe?) Where someone gets to live happily ever after. (I hope there is some kind of H or E or A). But what I know is one particular person drags another into such a web full of receipt and lies, no one will be allowed to crawl out. At least not alive.

Some say the past is the past, but when it comes to haunt you out of the pits of hell that not even Jesus can save you, what do you do? Getting into the second book Echo you get some answers but yet are left with more. The demons from the past are now in the present and may even continue on the future. Because right when you thought life was finally easing its choke hold on you, now the rope gets tighter and tighter. And what, all in the name of love? Can you love someone so much will do anything for? Even if it costs you your sanity?

I’m telling you, I can’t even answer my own questions. I also went back and re-read Bang because I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything. Here comes EK Blair and fucks with my head again. Did it make me pissed enough to not read or want the next book? Isn’t that the point of you wanting to read it? It messed you up so bad you probably cursed your kindle and the author. But yes I want to read a next one. Who is coming back now? Are you giving us a redemption, because quite frankly, is there anyone who deserves one here? All these characters are crazy and need therapy. Lifers.

Hope it’s not too long before the next installment because I will forget all the good juicy stuff you need in order to understand what the hell is going on. Happy Readings Dark Read Lovers1f48b
