Dear E.K Blair

This is a new concept of book reviewing for me, but I felt the need to do something different, therefore I’ve decided to write you a letter.

I’m going to start off by saying you are one incredibly gifted, gutsy lady and I applaud you for writing such an honest, deep, and at times shocking account of the ultimate betrayal.

Reading this felt like diving into that little black book, a sexual diary with no filter and a total disregard of the consequences.

Did I love our Victoria aka Madilyn Kline? No, I didn’t. Like many readers, her betrayal was a bitter pill to swallow and not one I can condone, but what I will say is as a woman I could understand her need of escapism. Victoria is a writer, a weaver of words and a fantasist, to act upon those fantasies and taste the bite of forbidden fruit is not a crime, but a personal choice. That choice came with consequences, such as excitement, pleasure, guilt, lies and ultimately heartbreak. The way you weaved this story into one of sexual obsession was a real page turner and I take my hat off to you for taking the bull by the horns and putting this story out there. This author, whomever she is, was right to trust you with her story. And you know what, even if this is a marketing ploy which many have accused you of, it’s a genius move. Only you know the truth, and girl, hold onto it as tightly as you can.

As for our male counterpart, I could respect his penchant for honesty but I was never really sure what to make of him. His opening conversation of ‘why so secretive’ was ironic in a sense, because that was how I felt about him, he was pretty much a closed book whilst being a killer in the sheets. I can’t say he didn’t intrigue me, because he really did and stone me dead but I saw the appeal, I got it even though I believe she was more invested emotionally. I say emotionally, she lost herself completely and she will be the first to admit that.

Author Anonymous is that book that get tongues wagging and speculation coming from every corner, but from what I can tell the backlash has been unprecedented and completely unjust. This is a story that you had every right to tell, and even though it states this is a true story, it doesn’t mean that every reader has automatically gained a key to unlocking the mystery because that’s not what this story is about. Yes, I admit it won’t be to everyone’s taste, and for many cheating is a hard limit but that’s life. Life isn’t always sunbeams and rainbows, sometimes it’s challenging and hard. Many of us live each day best we can but that doesn’t mean someone or something is going to come along one day and throw you completely off your axis, turning your world upside down – that is what this book represents to me; it is a story of life’s trials and the concept that acting on ‘more’ may not necessarily be better; in this case it was a sure recipe for disaster and heartbreak.

There are no monsters here, just humans.

With utmost respect.

Yours Sincerely

Kelly – Perusing Princesses

small frame review

Author Anonymous is a raw and completely frustrating story that made me want

too fling my kindle against the wall several times.

Made me skip parts and shut off my kindle and walk away pissed…

exasperated, shocked and amazed…

only to run back to the story and read everything I skipped,

and then I couldn’t put it down… it consumed me.

It has taken me days…. DAYS!! to get my head wrapped around this story… I have had the hardest time putting into words the tilt-a-whirl of emotions I felt reading it… HELL, I am still feeling them.

I can honestly say… I have no clue if I loved it or hated it… and that shocked me… How can one story make me this insane… make me get really really upset… think hurtful thoughts like wanting to junk punch this chick and hug her at the same time to heal all her wounds.  After letting it simmer, I think I have a better handle on it.  Let me explain… I love dark, difficult angst filled books… my heart beats to the beat of bleeding hearts and souls in books…. I am not normal.. I know…  But here is the thing… Although I have read some really twisted dark stories… they are stories… they are fiction… I can separate (compartmentalize… whatever…lol) my feelings into knowing the fact that this human being who wrote this amazing story with their brilliant brain, made it fiction… fake… does not really exist!

Ohhhhh… but in this wicked story by the always brilliant E.K. Blair… I am shattered… no wrapping up this story in a neat little bow, because it is true… it is real… it is raw, hurtful, hateful and beyond scary.   Now that I am being so very honest… My gut deep feelings about the horrible, horrifically selfish choices she made, at some very secret level, made me realize the reality that is if the majority of the women/wives/partners I know, (including myself) were in the very same situation, living this out as their real world… How many would not have done the same thing… lived out this life, no matter how messy and how bloody the battlefield of causalities it left behind…  Be honest… I would think that most of us might have just made some or maybe even all of the same choices…  and that my friends is the pang of pain I feel.  It is not that I hate this story.. it is that I hate that it could easily (too easily) be me… or you….

Ok.. take a moment to swallow that…

So knowing that this is based or is 100% the honest truth of a real life scenario…someone’s true world that does not have a song track or a safety net. And it absolutely does NOT have a pretty little happy ending wrapped up in a fancy bow, where all wrongs are righted and everyone lives happily ever after… that right there gives you a must read book… and BRAVO E.K. Blair and whoever you are Author Anonymous for pouring your heart and soul and letting it bleed out all over the pages…. all over this messy thing called life.
