BANG (Black Lotus, #1) by E.K 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.
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.**

Packed with seat-gripping suspense, a plot that is flawless and intricately woven, coupled with a distressing back story makes this one explosive and addictive read. Absolutely Brilliant! - Kelly, Perusing Princesses Blog
Bang is not your everyday poor girl meets rich boy love story, in fact, this goes above and beyond anything I ever imagined, and from that vague synopsis it's obvious now that is the way the author intended it. To give a full plot overview would be a true misjustice to this powerful and intricate story.
All I will say is Bang is a story built on a web of deceit and lies for the sole purpose of vengeance. The characters are far from perfect, their innocence destroyed by monsters which sadly had a detrimental affect on their future course.
Oh yes...This is a dangerous game, a titillating and addictive read that will sicken you one minute, have you hanging onto your seat for dear life, then sighing in lustful elation the next.
But the end... Oh my goodness! This book goes from 0-60 at a hares breath and it doesn't let up, not even at the final page. E.K Blair is the master of manipulation, her characters are well formed and her art of keeping the reader gripped is second to none.
This book is no fairy tale, but it tells of one lost... And one gained...'almost.'
Brutal, gripping and packed with suspense, this is a must read!
