BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY - The Replacement & The Prisoner by Rachael Wade



Book & Author details:

The Replacement & The Prisoner by Rachael Wade
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

Synopsis for The Replacement (January 24th 2014):

*Contains sexually explicit content and mature subject matter, including language and elements of abuse.*

A gritty New Adult drama about a young woman’s self-destructive quest to find purpose, self-worth, and love in a broken world.

My name is Elise Duchamp. I’m twenty-three years old and I’m known as the town whore.

No, not the kind who exchanges sexual favors for money. The other kind. The kind who gives it all away for free, whenever and however she likes. I am that girl. The one everyone whispers about and the one none of the girls seem to like, because all of their boyfriends either want to sleep with me or already have. Promiscuity is my thing—the kind that slowly, violently turns my insides black, but gives me something I need.

All things considered, I’m not completely reckless. I’m safe, and contrary to popular opinion, I do have a heart. I live in a world of careless choices, and with those choices come careless people. I cannot judge them, because I am one of them. I too bow down to the altar of the self-serving. I am not a good friend. I am not and never could be anyone’s girlfriend. I’m convinced any goodness in me shriveled up and died long ago.

But I am a replacement. That is something I know how to be, and this is a story of the lengths I’d go to in order to keep it that way.

**** out of 5 (really liked it)


This is the story of someone who is broken, who is doing what she can to find her 'fix' and doesn't care who she hurts by doing so.  She justifies it by thinking that if someone uses her to be unfaithful, she's actually helping them.

This is not an easy book to read, especially from that point of view.  The love story between Elise and Ryder is tender and poignant as she tries to keep her distance from him (emotionally) and tells him that she really isn't worth it.  Ryder knows all about her but sees something worthwhile in her.  Not many people do, most just hear and believe the gossip.

With a great supporting set of characters, whether you like or loathe them, this is definitely a gritty book for you to get your teeth into.

Synopsis for The Prisoner (July 24th 2014):

***THE PRISONER is a novella (approx. 25,000 words) intended to be read AFTER The Replacement. Contains explicit material and language.***

My name is Christian Walker, and Elise Duchamp is my drug of choice.

No matter how hard I try to break the habit, it’s a lost cause. Okay, maybe I haven’t really tried to quit this particular habit. All I can think about is owning her. Making her mine. Can you really blame me? With that sinful body, luscious mouth, and wicked tongue, she’s every man’s dream, and she knows it.

No one is immune to her charm, not even me, a man who has everything—a beautiful wife, an office with a view, and more money than most people can spend in one lifetime. Only I know how to make her toes curl. Only I know her body better than the other men she screws in her free time. None of them can compare to me.

But the joke is on me. I’m the prisoner.

The one who will never compare to him. The one man who makes me see red. His name is stored in her cell phone. It’s the first one she calls out to, the first one she cries for when all hell breaks loose. Ryder Jacobson.

The name makes me cringe.

She loves him, and I love her. In my own way, I always will. But the bad guy doesn’t always belong with the bad girl. Sometimes the bad girl needs a good man to believe in her, to give her that final push toward ultimate transformation. I wish I was that good man. That I could be her happily ever after. I guess that’s the thing about prisoners, though. They’re left alone with their torment, and in the end, they have no one to blame but themselves.

Review:


**** out of 5 (really liked it)


This novella gives you some of Christian and Elise's back story and brings you up to date with where they are now.  Christian is very dominant and expects things to go his way because for years, that is simply the way that things have worked out.  He has friends that will do as they are bid and agree to the conditions that Christian puts down.

Christian is not a good boy so don't be expecting this novella to paint him in an angelic light, unless that light is 'fallen'!  He is a bad boy and knows it.  However, he does prove that there is a small spark of hope that he will find his HEA.  A wonderful addition to The Replacement.
