5 Star Review ~ Author Anonymous: A true story by E.K. Blair and Anonymous


A TRUE STORY told through the voice of New York Times Bestselling author E.K. Blair. 

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, this is the astounding tale of how one choice knocked her world from its axis forcing her to battle through a year of scandal and betrayal, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. This is an intoxicatingly risqué stand-alone true story tangled in lust, heartbreak, and contrition. 

"A scandalous tell-all and cautionary tale penned by E.K. Blair but based on the true-life story of another romance author. Author Anonymous is based entirely on real events that transpired in the life of another New York Times best-selling romance author. 

Blair was approached by Anonymous to pen the work, as it was perceived as too illicit, and possibly too damning, for Anonymous to write herself."

When I read the blurb for Author Anonymous I didn’t know what to think. Would the book be good, will it give me what I expected, and the biggest question…IS THIS REAL?? Let me tell you this story is in my list of top reads for 2016!!

Author Anonymous was a heartbreaking, tear jerking rollercoaster ride.  When I began this book I thought it would be the typical book but this was far from it.  Author EK Blair gave us a story of someone who was lost, needed something that she wasn’t getting and the story of finding who she is and what she needs.  There was something about her self-worth that I questioned and if she knew what she was doing and why.  I was confused with why she didn’t want to move on but I realized she was lost. She needed something and had no way of telling what she needed. 

I cried when she did. She didn’t have anywhere to turn and I felt it. I felt her pain, her sorrow and most of all her fear. I suffered with her for the fear of being alone, the fear of wanting, not getting what she needs, the fear of losing everything and losing herself.

I loved this story. EK Blair did an amazing job taking us into the life of someone who wanted us to understand that we are human, she did some things that may not be okay with a lot but it happened and she worked through it.

New York Times, USA Today, and International Bestselling Author E.K. Blair, takes her readers on an emotional roller coaster with her dynamic and intense writing style. Noted for her ability to create fleshed-out characters that will evoke a realm of reactions, you can be assured that her stories will linger with you far beyond the last word. A former first grade teacher with an imagination that runs wild. Daydreaming and zoning out is how she was often found in high school. Blair tends to drift towards everything dark and moody. Give her a character and she will take pleasure in breaking them down, digging into their core to find what lies underneath. Aside from writing, E.K. Blair finds pleasure in music, drinking her Starbucks in peace, and spending time with her friends. She’s a thinker, an artist, a wife, a mom, and everything in between.
