Book Review: Fading by EK Blair

Fading by EK Blair: Can a guilty conscience keep wounds from healing?

Fine arts major, Candace Parker, grew up with a mother who thinks image is everything, and her daughter’s perfection will never be good enough. About to graduate college and pursue her dreams of becoming a professional ballerina, Candace decides it’s time to let go and have a little fun. But fun is short-lived when a brutal attack leaves her completely shattered.

The memories that consume and torment Candace are starting to destroy her when she meets Ryan Campbell, a successful bar owner. He feels instantly connected and tries to show her that hope is worth fighting for. But is Ryan harboring his own demons? As walls slowly begin to chip away, the secrets that are held within start to become painful burdens.

At what point do secrets become lies?

My thoughts: It took me a little bit to become fully invested in FADING, but let me tell you... once I did, I was pretty annoyed that I had to put it down to do things like work, sleep, eat, you know that annoying thing called real life kept interrupting.

I was sucked into the book and found myself tearing up several times. Candace has backbone. She would be someone I would like to hang out with. The interaction between her and Ryan was well written. He was infinitely more patient than most guys might have been given a similar situation.

Candace's mom. What can I say? It's sad that a parent could be so cold toward her own child, but it happens all the time.

I loved Jace and Mark. Wish I would have gotten a chance to know Kimber a little better, but maybe next book??

Well done EK Blair. I look forward to books 2 and 3!
