Bang 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. 
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.

I've read this book after there romance author and reading event last year and till now I just wasn't able to write a review. A week ago, the second book came out so I decided (after reading Echo, the black lotus series part 2) to do a re-read and write both review. Warning this book will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. It also covers some pretty dark stuff and some things are pretty disturbing so if you can't take or aren't interested in that sort of things, this book might not be for you. And by the way when I say dark I mean dark.  So that might tell you something about my brain because I loved it. I just had to put the book down a view times, but never for to long. I really had to take in what was happening at some points during the book. It wasn't a boring flight home, I'll tell you that. 

What is this book about
I  don't even know where to begin. There is so much depth to this story .  I just won't be able to do it justice.
The story is about  Nina, she is the wife of Bennett Vanderwall, who is a very wealthy  business men. The first thing you have to know about this book. That's nothing is what it seems.  When you first see the married couple they look very happy but like I said nothing is what it seems. Nina's real name is Elizabeth. When she was 8 years old she got ripped away from her father and was put in several foster homes. In the last foster home she met her brother Pike. Pike and Elizabeth share a very strong and unusual bond. They say mutual trauma creates a strong bond between people. And the trauma they both went to is just horrible.   The story really takes a very dark and twisted turn. 
    And then there's Declan. He is a strong, dominating, alpha, very sexy Scottish business man. He get's what he wants and he isn't ashamed to go for it. He is unapologetic in his pursuit after Nina, and It's not for the reason you think it is.  Nina isn't planning to fall in love with declan, she has other plans for him, but plans aren't always going according to plan. 

What did I love about this book.
I love the thrill and the excitement of it. This book really kept me on my toes and It really kept me interested. But sometimes I had to take a step back and take it all in.  This book doesn't go in the way you might things it will go. There are many twist and turns. And the debt, story building and character development are amazing. 
There are some pretty desturbing things going on in this but, that made me question why I liked it. Not all of it but most of it I do.  If you like a dark romance themed book, this one is the one for you. And if you're not sure, pick it up and try. Oh and be warned, ek blair really ends her books with a bang. 

Declan and Nina 

"you've heard of Newton's first law of motion right? The one that states that an object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. It's a science that can't be negated, and with the game in full speed, I'm about to learn the catastrophic consequences of that law"
