Author Anonymous by E.K. Blair

*An intoxicatingly risqué stand-alone book.

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.

Experience the astounding tale of how Anonymous battled through a year of scandals and betrayals, how her world fell from its axis with a single choice, and how she lost herself between reality and fantasy.

This is a stand-alone tangled in lust, heartbreak, and contrition.

*Based on a true story.

So if you’re at all involved in the book community, you’ve heard about this book. I just read this in one sitting, so great writing from E.K. Blair. For the record, E.K. Blair wrote the book for this anonymous person. It’s not her story.

With all that said…what did I just read? I have never been on such a high of emotions. From absolute elation, seduction, and heartbreak. I feel like my mind is utterly spinning out of control with everything I just read. This is a book that I will not forget.

You go from loving Tori, our “author anonymous” to hating her, to loving her, to feeling your heart shatter with her.  You can feel her anguish as she goes through all of these emotions. Her confusion really just sinks into your soul as hear her story.

Then…as the story goes on and she makes her final decision, we see everything, and I mean everything, come crashing down. Its all a smoke and mirrors game with fantasy, you know. Fantasy can never be reality because fantasy is perfect. No one ever says the wrong thing, no one ever lies. Even if you feel unattractive, someone thinks you’re beautiful. It truly is like a drug. And Tori is addicted.

I will say this: I’d recommend this book based on the amount of emotion it had me going through. I was literally covering my mouth (and subsequently fogging up my reading glasses) from gasping and being shocked by Tori, to absolutely sobbing at one point. I felt love for her, then pity, then hatred, then just back and forth. I really couldn’t pinpoint how I felt. So based on the spectacular writing by E.K. Blair, I’d say to read this book. But it does deal with infidelity, and if that is a subject you prefer not to read about, then you will not want to read this book.
