New Release ~ 4 Stars for The Replacement Wife by Britney King

Title: The Replacement Wife
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: May 3, 2018 
From the bestselling author of The Social Affair comes a new riveting, powerful psychological thriller which offers a savage look into a utopian cultish society where beauty and perfection are valued at all costs. 
For readers of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins, The Replacement Wife offers a peek into the lives of a married couple up against impossible odds and the notion that history has a way of repeating itself.
Statistically speaking, fifty percent of marriages end up in divorce. What are the odds for murder? 
Widower Tom Anderson is a savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Problem is, one is a lonely number. Thankfully, he solved for X by finding the perfect woman. It wasn’t easy. Tom is very specific. He has to be.
Having checked ‘find trophy wife’ off his list, life was moving along swimmingly. Until that perfect woman let it slip–she has a past. One she kept hidden, almost perfectly.
Sure, she lied–she fudged the numbers. Most women do.
Now, Tom has buyers’ remorse and according to cult rules only two options: get rid of her–or single-handedly erase her past.
She’s a liar. But she does keep house well. And she makes a mean lasagna.
Decisions, decisions.
Razor-sharp and utterly gripping, this electrifying story explores the lengths one will go in the pursuit of perfection, little white lies that can turn lethal, and the danger lurking behind the smiles of those we trust most.

My Review

4 Stars!

Get ready for secrets, intrigue with this new psychological thriller from Britney King!

This dark, psychological thriller is a twisty, engrossing read. Set in the world of a cult seeking to create a utopian society, we meet Tom and Melanie. I won’t go into the plot so I don’t spoil, but let me tell you, there is a lot going on. Nothing is as it seems and when some secrets come to life it creates a whole new mess for those involved. And the ending will blow you over!

Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.
When she’s not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.
Currently, she’s writing three series and several standalone novels.
The Bedrock Series features an unlikely heroine who should have known better. Turns out, she didn’t. Thus she finds herself tangled in a messy, dangerous, forbidden love story and face-to-face with a madman hell-bent on revenge. The series has been compared to Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, and Basic Instinct.
The Water Series follows the shady love story of an unconventional married couple—he’s an assassin—she kills for fun. It has been compared to a crazier book version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, Dexter.
Around The Bend is a heart-pounding standalone, which traces the journey of a well-to-do suburban housewife, and her life as it unravels, thanks to the secrets she keeps. If she were the only one with things she wanted to keep hidden, then maybe it wouldn’t have turned out so bad. But she wasn’t.
The With You Series at its core is a deep love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. Packed with drama and adventure along with a heavy dose of suspense, it has been compared to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Love, Rosie.
The Social Affair is an intense standalone about a timeless couple who find themselves with a secret admirer they hadn’t bargained for. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, the novel explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience. It is reminiscent of films such as One Hour Photo and Play Misty For Me.

Blog Tour ~ 5 Stars for Such Dark Things by Courtney Evan Tate

From New York Times bestseller Courtney Cole, writing as Courtney Evan Tate, comes the psychological thriller that will keep readers up turning pages long into the night, SUCH DARK THINGS! “Written in breathless style, this page-turner relies on quick thrills, surprise twists…[for] readers seeking a fast entertaining tale…”(Publishers Weekly). Grab your copy of SUCH DARK THINGStoday!

A HORRIFIC RECURRING NIGHTMARE IS THREATENING TO STEAL HER SANITY…

Dr. Corinne Cabot is living the American dream. She’s a successful ER physician in Chicago who’s married to a handsome husband. Together they live in a charming house in the suburbs. But appearances can be deceiving—and what no one can see is Corinne’s dark past. Troubling gaps in her memory mean she recalls little about a haunting event in her life years ago that changed everything.

She remembers only being in the house the night two people were found murdered. Her father was there, too. Now her father is in prison; she hasn’t been in contact in years. Repressing that terrifying memory has caused Corinne moments of paranoia and panic. Sometimes she thinks she sees things that aren’t there, hears words that haven’t been spoken. Or have they? She fears she may be losing her mind, unable to determine what’s real and what’s not.

So when she senses her husband’s growing distance, she thinks she’s imagining things. She writes her suspicions off to fatigue, overwork, anything to explain what she can’t accept—that her life really isn’t what it seems.

 My Review

5 Stars!!

Holy wow! This book… twisty, dark, psychological… amazingly great read!

This review will be short, sweet and too the point so as to avoid any and all possible spoilers.

Nothing is as it seems in this book. Nothing. It is edgy, erotic. It is shocking.

I loved it!

Review Tour ~ 4 Stars for The Social Affair by Britney King!

Title: The Social Affair
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: January 18, 2018 

In the tradition of Gone Girl and Behind Closed Doors comes a gripping, twisted, furiously clever read that demands your attention, and keeps you guessing until the very end. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, The Social Affair delivers us the perfect dark and provocative villain. The only question—who is it?
A timeless, perfect couple waltzes into the small coffee shop where Izzy Lewis works. Instantly enamored, she does what she always does in situations like these: she searches them out on social media. 
Just like that—with the tap of a screen— she’s given a front row seat to the Dunns’ picturesque life. This time, she’s certain she’s found what she’s been searching for. This time, she’ll go to whatever lengths it takes to ensure she gets it right—even if this means doing the unthinkable.
Intense and original, The Social Affair is a disturbing psychological thriller that explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience.

My Review

4 Stars!

Britney King is quite talented. I think we all knew this already. (Hello, Water Under the Bridge series anyone?) So, in case you don’t know what you’re getting into with this, just think deep, psychological thriller.

King outdid herself with The Social Affair. It is twisty and full of crazy turns that you will never see coming. I finished the last line of the book with my mouth agape and my head spinning. I turned and looked at my husband and said a few choice words followed by a long exhale. I was lucky to be on vacation from work with this one, because once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. And it is NOT a fast read by any means. There is too much to pay attention to, to remember and to learn as you read along. I stayed up all night and into the morning to finish it and I do not regret it for a second.

The writing is amazing. The plot is crazy twisted and so unique. The characters will intrigue you. Some you will despise, others you will feel pangs of sympathy for, but none of them is really as they seem. However, cleverly enough, this IS a romance with a HEA. Believe it or not. And, it is quite a satisfying HEA.

This is not a book you want to miss! Take a ride on The Social Affair train. You will NOT regret it!

Hot New Release ~ The Perfect Roommate by Minka Kent!

 

 

 

 

 

She’s my roommate.

I know how she takes her tea, how she organizes her closet.

I know when she goes to bed each night, what she eats for breakfast, the passcode on her phone.

I know she calls her mother on Mondays, takes barre on Thursdays, and meets her friends for drinks on Fridays.

But more important than any of that … I know what she did.

 

 

 



 

 

 

Minka Kent has been crafting stories since before she could scribble her name. With a love of the literary dark and twisted, Minka cut her teeth on Goosebumps and Fear Street, graduated to Stephen King as a teenager, and now counts Gillian Flynn, Chevy Stevens, and Caroline Kepnes amongst her favorite authors and biggest influences. Minka has always been curious about good people who do bad things and loves to explore what happens when larger-than-life characters are placed in fascinating situations.

In her non-writing life, Minka is a thirty-something wife and mother who equally enjoys sunny and rainy days, loves freshly cut hydrangeas, hides behind oversized sunglasses, travels to warmer climates every chance she gets, and bakes sweet treats when the mood strikes (spoiler alert: it’s often).

Review Tour: 4.5 Stars for Nelumbo Nucifera by Cristina Slough

Title: Nelumbo Nucifera
Author: Cristina Slough
Genre: Women’s Fiction/Psychological Thriller
Published: January 24, 2017
On the surface, Gaby Parker has it all; however, behind closed doors, is a woman who lives in constant fear of the man who was supposed to love her: her husband, Kyle. Beaten, desperate, and broken, Gaby realizes the only way to escape from her violent husband is to kill herself — on paper. Gaby is dead, and Riley Locklin is born, residing in the tranquil coastal town of Chesswick Bay Montauk where she hopes to start over and meets a man who shows her bruises aren’t kisses. Meanwhile, back home, Kyle is doing everything in his power to prove Gaby isn’t dead. But…police find her burnt-out car and remains? Kyle isn’t buying it; he knows she’s still alive. He launches his own full investigation to find his wife — and he’ll stop at nothing to claim her back. A female Detective assigned to his wife’s case doesn’t like him very much after discovering a domestic violence report – scorned by the history of her mother’s domestic abuse, she’s determined to send Kyle down for his wife’s murder. And then he finds her. Will Gaby finally take a stand? – NELUMBO NUCIFERA

My Review:

4.5 Stars!

 

Nelumbo Nucifera is a smart, well-written psychological thriller/Women’s Fiction novel by a new to me author.  Well, after reading this, let me tell you…I am a fan of Cristina Slough for life!

This is a spoiler free review, because giving anything away would be an injustice to you the reader.  The book is exactly what you think it is and then suddenly it isn’t.  It is told by multiple narrators and I wasn’t sure who to trust or believe.  I was in the dark about the real story until it was revealed, very cleverly, I might add.

This book is raw and gritty and emotional and will pull you in from page one.  Set aside some quiet time and dig in, because once you start you won’t want to put it down!

 

“Nelumbo Nucifera is a cleverly crafted book that will keep readers hanging on the edge of their seat and FEELING some very powerful emotions. It is not necessarily a romance rather, a psychological thriller with a romance added in making it the PERFECT read for fans of either genre.” ~Pretty Little Books

When Kyle went to his car, the club was aglow with flashing blue and red lights. The wail of sirens assaulted his ears. Two ambulances were parked outside.
He caught a glimpse of a woman being carried out on a stretcher. Police had concealed the club with yellow tape. The last thing that he needed was to get pulled into this shit. To his relief, as the gate opened, he was able to get straight on the road. The timing couldn’t have been worse. Right now he needed Randy, but now he was embroiled with the night’s events. Kyle pulled out into the interstate. He pushed his foot down heavy on the accelerator; his pulse was beating hard in his chest. He tried to think back: Had there been any clues? He debated the pros and cons of going after her. If he found her, he knew that his rage would win and he wouldn’t be in control anymore. He imagined her, out there somewhere, laughing at him, thinking that she had gotten away with it. Meanwhile, he was under the microscope with the cops—especially with Detective Isla Bitch Morany. Even thinking about that woman made him want to punch something; he would love to wipe her smug know it all look off her face. But her badge protected her; it acted as a shield, because if she was working a normal job, there was no way she wouldn’t have had a fist or two to knock her back in line.
Kyle thought about the money he had parted with since this all began; he was satisfied that the bulk of his funds were off shore; Morany may have uncovered his dirty dealings, and they were enough to get him in hot water, but his reserves would be enough to save him, probably. He drove past a parade of billboards advertising the Love of God:
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.”
It felt as if that sign had been placed there especially for him. Things between him and Gaby had never been smooth, but he thought he had things in a structured order, and he was desperate to claw it back. He decided that he was going to do just as God had instructed: “Be wise as a serpent.”

What did I just read?!  Pretty Lost Dolls is crazy creepy goodness!

The second book in the Pretty Stolen Dolls series, Pretty Lost Dolls picks up where book one left off.  Jade has already been through hell at the hands of Benny.  She got out and has been planning her revenge.  Now she is back in Benny’s hell, but she is not the same girl from all those years ago.  Now, she is determined to survive and to fight back.

The writing in this book is insanely good.  The words hop off the page as if playing out the twisted scenes in your head.  The use of multiple POVs was spot on, giving us a look inside the minds of the crazy Benny, the kick butt Jade and the concerned Dillon.    Dukey and Webster come up with some seriously twisted stuff in this series.  Sick, twisted, crazy goodness.

I’ll be honest.  I hadn’t read book one when I got my hands on this.  I immediately went out and got book 1 and I am glad I did.  Book 1 had a devastating cliffhanger and had I had to wait for Pretty Lost Dolls, I’m not sure I would have been able to be held responsible for my actions.  Lucky for all of us, I was able to binge the books together and once I started, I couldn’t put them down.  For real.  I started book one at 8 p.m.  Bad choice.  I didn’t get to sleep until after 4 a.m. and that was only because I fell asleep because my eyes wouldn’t stay open any longer.

Pretty Lost Dolls is a must-read, unputdownable masterpiece of crazy, messed up, sick and twisted goodness!

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

Come find me on Facebook, where I love interacting with my readers.

Blurb:

I am not a good person.

In fact, I am the worst of the worst. I am a god. I give life and I taketh away. I can ruin someone at the drop of a hat and often do it for fun. Yet the world would never know. I smile for the cameras and live the privileged life. But with every vile existence comes the opportunity for redemption.

She is my Redemption.

I am the Huntress.

Society doesn’t realize how deadly I truly am.

My Review:

4/5 Stars!!!

This series just keeps getting better!

I have a fascination with this series that keeps sucking me in a little bit further with every book.  No answers in this one.  This is the psychological mindf*%k that delves into the psyches of our characters.  Not enough action for you…too bad, because you just don’t want to miss the development the authors throw at us in preparation for the final installment.

Ellie is a badass and Linc…oh, I love Linc!  I want these two together so bad I can taste it.  Because, really…Ellie deserves her HEA.  We get a softer side of Ellie, more personal and it made me love her even more.

A short, quick read with so much going on…the intriguing mystery continues and you don’t want to miss it!

I am not a good person. In fact, I am the worst of the worst. I was dragged down into the gutter and have thrived in this seedy underbelly where I was recreated. Reborn as Eleanor McGuire, socialite and professional hitwoman. The filthiest, dirtiest, high profile pieces of shit, I end them.

I am the huntress.

Corrupt men are my prey.

Coming soon on January 2, 2017

I am a good person.

In fact, I am the best of the best. I am a saint. I made the greatest sacrifice of my life in hopes of forgiveness from my sins. I saw the light and he saved me from the darkness.

I am Nameless.

Does anyone know who I really am?

Dawn and Kristen want to warn you: this is not for the faint of heart! But if gore, violence, and extreme sexual situation are your cup of tea, this is the series for you.

Kristen Hope Mazzola

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.

Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.

Dawn Robertson

Three times best selling author Dawn Robertson was born and raised in Connecticut before relocating to Florida in 2013. The same year first novel, Hers debuted as an Amazon Best Seller. Replicating that success with two additional novels in the following years.

The Indie publishing world has grown to love her raw writing style depicting strong
women in real life situations, topping the charts in erotica, romance, and romance-suspense. Robertson has even insinuated that the female characters in her book mirror her real life. But, that I’ll leave to speculation.

When Dawn Robertson is not writing she is a full-time Real Estate professional in Florida, and mother of three amazing children.
