*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.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

If you are looking for the sweet girl next door, you’re in the wrong place. Who you’ll find here is Elise Duchamp, the unabashed town whore of Gig Harbor. She’s reckless with who she gives her body to, but has her heart chained up, determined not to share it with anyone.

That is until the Ryder, the outdoorsy bibliophile shows up in her life, determined to find the key to unlock those chains, and try to show her that she’s not just a replacement.

“Today has been art and ink and blood, but it’s also been emotion and confusion and sweaty, lecherous sex.”

I always find it funny when people in books are talking about their love of book kind of like they’re breaking the 4th wall without really doing so. It reminds me of the movie fans in scream, although it usually works out better for the book characters!

Rachael Wade takes us on a emotional roller coaster ride as she switches things up from steamy and hot to devastatingly heartbreaking in a few short sentences. There were a few scenes that fully qualify as tear jerking, but honestly I was too busy picking my jaw back up off of the ground.

If you’re looking for a some spice with a lot of heart, be sure to grab this book!

***THE PRISONER IS AN ADDITION TO THE REPLACEMENT. IT IS A STAND-ALONE NOVELLA INTENDED TO BE READ AFTER THE REPLACEMENT.

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

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Short but sizzling, The Prisoner gives us the point of view of Christian Walker as he weaves in and out of the story from The Replacement. Without having read The Replacement, things in this story will seem to jump around a bit and not make very much sense other than a collection of hot scenes.

Those of you who have read The Replacement I think will enjoy a peek into the inner workings of Christian. And brings a little more clarity to what had been happening between him and Elise.
