Marley: A Carnage Novel

Want to know what really happened in that hotel room in Paris?

Want to know if the rumours of Marley, Sean and their sexploits were true?

We got to watch Georgia fall apart but what was Sean going through in those four years they were separated?

Marley will give you the answers but he might just break your heart along the way.

“‘So, they want me to write a book? They want to know about my band, my life, my loves and my losses. But they have no idea what they’re asking for. If I give them what they want, they’ll get so much more than the sex and drugs and the rock and roll they’re expecting. They’ll get the secrets that I’ve kept for so long, they’ll get an insight into the person I really am, or at least was. They think they know my story, they know nothing.

If I do this, if I write honestly and give them the ugly truth, people will get hurt. People that I love, people that have already suffered in the worst possible ways.

Do I do this, or do I walk away? Taking my secrets to the grave.”

Marley is an adult contemporary romance. It contains content suitable only for grownups with an open mind. There are scenes of group sex which include m/f/m a little bit of f/m/m and even some f/f/f/m/m/f/f/f. There is drinking and drug taking involved. A lot of swearing, some Essex slang and some very high emotion. Please don’t complain after reading this book that you weren’t warned.

And yes, of course you’ll need tissues.

Title: End Of Day

Series: Jack & Jill Series Book One

Author: Jewel E. Ann

Release Date: 17th August, 2015







Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life.

Four caskets. Two bodies.

Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.

Four months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.

Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.

Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don’t kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.

Where, for crying out loud, has this author been hiding? Why we haven’t read any works by her is actually a dilemma since her genre is right up our street. But as they say, ‘better late than never.’ A unique style combined with a solid and original storyline and brilliant character development left us in awe. We found it gripping from the first page and although it was a tad confusing to start off with, this was to soon be rectified as we read on. Words, paragraphs and chapters were savoured to the very last drop only meaning that one has to be on the ball as every minute detail is of extreme importance. Angst-ridden moments flourish, humorous banter abounds but more often than not, touches of disparagement outweigh the laugh out loud occasions. We have to say how much we loved this authors writing style. She must have a very witty, dry sense of humour which came over in the dialogue in boat loads!

“I bet you’re a missionary man. By the book: seven-point-five minutes of foreplay, thirty seconds of clitoral stimulation to get her lubed up and exactly thirty five seconds of thrusts until climax, followed by ten minutes of spooning, a kiss on the cheek, and maybe even a gentlemanly ‘thank you’ before insisting she leave so you can get your necessary eight-point-five hours of sleep.”

The story overflows with complexities. Two thirty-year-old siblings joined at the medulla aren’t what one could say, conventional. Chapter one is unusual in the respect that two lives end and then begin for unknown reasons! We are still asking why they were so highly trained in the art of hand-to-hand combat; however, book one told us about how the two protagonists adapt to their new identities, their new surroundings and their expectations. Regardless of so many unanswered questions, we most certainly connected to this quirky pair. Told in third person from multiple points of view, the story flips back and forth from past to present throwing light on their former selves.

“We can put bullets in our heads tomorrow if that’s what you want, but don’t self-destruct on me. Not after everything we have been through.”

Jessica Day and her brother, Jude, have no option but to move on and become Jill and Jackson Knight. Moving to a neighbourhood where the residents are close-knit, generous and gossipy isn’t exactly what they expected, but they won’t waste any time integrating into their new community and jobs. Brother and sister have a very special relationship and we loved it, we loved them. Tenaciously sassy; Jill has a soft spot – her vulnerability. How she made up for this was a little rebellious on her part. Her outrageous dress sense is second to none. Oh lord, red welly boots… her attire… well lack of it, has its repercussions and made us smile more than once with the comments flying back and forth! Mainly from a neighbour whose traits are totally fitting for his military profession. It took us time to come round to AJ but when we did, there was no going back.

“I’m going to fuck your mouth first.”
“Interesting choice of foreplay given my …. need.”

Jackson. Tattooed, drop-dead gorgeous and add his positive attitude to adjust, had us swooning. Jill worries him no end and with reason. The aftermath of a traumatic experience left her damaged, the circumstances she’s in and what she had to leave behind don’t help either. A huge heart to help out where she can and Jackson’s unconditional love and comprehension gives her an inner strength to carry on. The love between these siblings is unquestionably the backbone of this story. We’re not sure either one could go through the experiences they’ve had without each other. They haven’t had what one would call a traditional childhood but so far in this book, you don’t get to know the detail. As with most of this read, you are picking up snippets as you go along which fall into place as you near the end!

“It’s a kiss, Jessica. Not sex.”
“Whoa…. Clearly you don’t understand. A kiss is a save the date, an RSVP to my vagina that says: You. Will. Be. There.”

Wow, the ending! That really did leave us blown away! We aren’t going to spoil it but unusually, the ending of this read isn’t really the ending! Confused? You will be but let us explain. The author kindly gives you a little taster of the beginning of book two, Middle of Knight. You don’t have to read it but being gluttons for punishment, we did! Let’s just say we ‘one-clicked’ as soon as possible! Although we were left bereft from what we’d read, we have to know what happens next to this brother and sister. All we know is their lives are about to get a whole lot more complicated!

“So you want me for my body?”
“I think we both know it’s not for your stellar personality.”

If you are looking for a read full of intrigue, suspense, passion and without question, originality, this book delivers! It’s not your typical love story per se but it was an amazing insight into the minds of two extraordinary individuals. The book comes under the erotica genre and to a point, we have to agree as the book does contain some very steamy sex scenes; notwithstanding, it’s so much more than that. Our recommendation would be to go in blind and get ready for the ride of your life! Also, do not be tempted to skip a few pages to find out what happens next (tempting we know!) as the chances are you would miss a vital piece of information which could be key to the story. Bravo Ms Jewel E. Ann!
