#NewRelease #Review #Forbidden SECRET LUCIDITY by E.K. Blair @EK_Blair_Author @GiveMeBooksBlog

Title: Secret Lucidity
Author: E.K. Blair
Genre: Student/Teacher Forbidden Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2018


This wasn’t supposed to happen.
But it did.
This wasn’t supposed to be my life.
But it was.

I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn’t see my way out of. That was, until him.

I never could’ve imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty.

The only problem?
He was off limits.

But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences.

My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story.

Before I started this amazing book, I read an open letter from the author. Her talent is beyond words. She has captured my heart and stolen my breath. So when I read her letter saying she had to do this on her own, it actually hurt my heart. I was so amazed by her talent I couldn't understand why...But I get it now. I understand why but it doesn't mean I agree.

You see, this book is a student teacher romance. It's about two broken souls finding THE ONE that makes them whole. It's messy, complicated, and complex. It's life- in its horror, it's passion, and it's fragility. 

Some of you will judge both book and author.
Some of you will be uncomfortable.
Some of you will write it off.


Some of you will see the beauty in an unappealing situation. You will see a spark, a hope where there was none. You may not be blind to societal concerns and they may even affect you but you won't be stuck on a number, it will be the unconditional love carrying you through. Unconditional Love.

I spent the better part of my afternoon shoving my reactions in the author's inbox. I had to vent, to cry, and to sob. Yes, I actually started sobbing. It was cathartic in such an odd way. I have never been in the particular situation that David and Cam find themselves. It doesn't take much though to relate...To relate to loss, abandonment, insecurity, and overwhelming grief. 

Cam could be any one person searching for their own David to keep from drowning. If only every one is that lucky...

Now for all the haters that read this and label me...bring it on. I have plenty of fight and I'm not afraid to say my piece. If you want a life lesson, I'm more than happy to share. 

For the rest, I hope you truly enjoy the controversial, but no less valid love in these pages.

I’ve read a lot of student/teacher books but trust me this will be unlike any you’ve read before but then I should have guessed that this author would put her own unique spin on it.

From the moment we meet Cam you can tell she’s an amazing young woman but what she goes through broke my heart I just wanted to hug her. David is the new swim coach/English teacher who has had struggles in his past.

One thing I can always guarantee with this author is that her words can destroy and then heal you in equal measure. I felt Cam’s devastation and pain it literally bled through on every page. David wasn’t just in the right place at the right time he was the only one that saw her pain. 

Devastating and at times heartbreaking but so good I loved it and both main characters.
