RELEASE BLITZ PACKET – We Are One ~Volumes 1 & 2 ~ Charity Anthologies

We Are One
What can I do?
Haven’t we all asked that question?
What can I do to help these people in need as fire destroys our beautiful country?
With big celebs donating money we could never match, which we are SO incredibly
grateful for, we wonder how our little donations can make a difference? But they can. Every SINGLE cent makes a difference. Every person makes a difference. Everyone coming together MAKES a difference. 
So, I decided to make a difference. I wanted to give back. I wanted to help. 
What I never expected was the incredible support my fellow Australian authors would give me. These utterly BEAUTIFUL women all came forward and happily threw themselves into my cause. They wanted to help. They had lived the pain. Cried the tears. Seen the destruction. They, my friends, are angels. 
So, there you have it. This is how we’re helping our country. 
Today, Australia Day, we are so proud to be releasing not one but TWO incredible anthologies into the public. Volume One is available on ALL platforms (Nook, Apple Books, Amazon, Kobo etc) and Volume Two is exclusive to Amazon and FREE in Kindle
Unlimited. We wanted to open it up to EVERYONE. 
Two incredible editions, full of amazing books, for the price of $3.99. That money you spend will go directly into helping two incredible charities that need our money the most right now. Your purchase will go towards saving things that are so utterly broken right now. We need to heal our country. We need to
heal what’s broken. 
VOLUME ONE will go in full to HIVE AID. Bees are everything, you guys, and they’re being destroyed. Without them, there is no us, they need our help

VOLUME TWO will go in full to WIRES – Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization
– 
https://www.wires.org.au
Our native flora and fauna need us, and we’ve decided to give to them. 
The most important part, is me giving a shout out to the incredible people who have graciously helped us without question. Who have given their time to us without hesitation. 
For this ABSOLUTELY amazing cover, I give full thanks to Ben Ellis from Tall Story Designs. He has worked with us to give us the most beautiful cover I could ever imagine. Ben, thank you, no words can express how grateful we are.
Please, go and give him your support –

From the outside looking in, Sarah and Liam’s bond has been unbreakable since the moment they first laid eyes on each other.

Love, romance, and friendship should form the ropes that tether them together.
But when old insecurities rise to the surface, Sarah loses sight of her self-worth and feels her identity fading. Faced with a choice that threatens to fray those ties, she finally begins to unravel.
Until one day, those ropes snap, that bond is broken, and their relationship sent spiralling off course.

It only takes one defining moment.
One look.
One dance.
One conversation.

Sarah knows from the second she meets Liam that their connection is more than just instant attraction. It’s deep, it’s consuming, and has the potential to be the real thing. But true love comes at a price.

Fuelled by Liam’s past, Sarah’s issues, and a messy web of family ties, business partnerships, and exes, the combined forces threaten to snuff out their new found relationship.

Will that spark be smothered by outside forces? Or will they be carried like smoke from the ashes and sent spiralling skywards?

Written in Lesley Jones’ usual heartfelt, witty, and emotional voice, this dual point of view story is just the beginning of her Spiralling series.

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.

Lesley Jones Biography

Lesley was born and grew up in Essex, just outside of London, England but moved with her family to Australia in 2006 and now lives close to the city of Melbourne. As well as writing, Lesley is an avid reader and also enjoys watching a game of football- the round ball version- while sipping on a glass of wine, during her down time. Despite now living in Aus, she is still an Essex girl at heart and remains partial to her waxing, tinting, sculpting and shellac routines. Lesley is a huge fan of social media and can often be found chatting to her readers in her various groups. She is a sucker for a reality TV show, with TOWIE being her obvious favourite.

Saviour/Resolution Boxed Set Book Summary

Saviour Resolution Cover

Book 1 Saviour…

Lauren has decided that her marriage is over, she has had enough of her husband’s abusive and unreasonable behaviour. After making this decision and resigning herself to the fact that she will now be middle aged and single, she embarks on a girl’s night out and spills her guts to her girlfriends about what she has endured, in secret all these years.
Gabriel joins his brothers for a drink at a local bar. He’s thirty five and very single. Good looks and a good job mean the ladies are generally lining up every night, which is just the way he likes it, straight sex, no complications.
Then their worlds collide, neither of them looking or thinking that what they need is each other but the chemistry is instant and overwhelming and has the possibility to consume and destroy them both. Despite her husband’s behaviour, Lauren is not a cheater and refuses to get involved with Gabe until she has moved out of her marital home and ended her marriage once and for all but events take a catastrophic turn and Gabe ends up coming to her rescue, becoming her Saviour and a relationship forms at lightning speed. Can they overcome both their pasts to survive the future, together? Is the amazing, mind blowing sex enough? Join Lauren and Gabriel on their emotional, funny, sexy and traumatic journey as they try to conquer the demons from their past and build a future together. Their story will make you laugh and it will make you cry and sometimes do both at the same time! This isn’t a hearts and flowers romance, it follows the story of two broken people, trying to find a way forward together after being let down in the worst possible ways. Saviour approaches a serious subject with realism, heart felt emotion and even humour.
Lauren has issues that will drive you insane and Gabe is lost, unsure of how to express what exactly it is that he’s feeling, making them both behave in ways that you will find somewhat frustrating…

BOOK 2 Resolution…

Resolution picks up exactly where Saviour left us all hanging! Having left an abusive marriage at 45, Lauren can hardly believe that she has found Gabe, a 35 year old blonde buff sex god, their instant chemistry has convinced him that that he wants to change his serial shagging ways and to make what they have found permanent, he knows that he loves Lauren but relationships are a whole new concept to him and he doesn’t always get it right.
Lauren, still reeling from the abuse she has suffered at the hands of her ex-husband is not convinced that jumping straight into another marriage is the right thing for her, despite how much she loves Gabe, the sex is amazing, they have no problems there. With Gabe she is growing in confidence and trying things in the bedroom…and everywhere else… that she never even considered during her marriage but they have known each other for just 10 short weeks and already they have been through enough drama to last a lifetime.
Will Lauren listen to taunts from jealous exes and her own self-doubt; or will the love (and lust) Lauren has found in Gabe’s arms be enough for her to let go of her painful past to build a future with Gabe. Resolution is the conclusion of Gabe and Laurens story, it will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, with some steamy and erotic sex scenes, just to keep your pulse racing, like Saviour, some scenes are gut wrenching, it will have you laughing, crying and wanting to not only hug Gabe and Lauren but also wanting to shake some sense into them. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Resolution is the final book in the Saviour Series

THE CARNAGE EXPERIENCE BY REBECCA 

Thinking Out Loud Ed Sheeran on repeat play – check

Big girl panties on and pulled up – check

Still a sobbing shredded mess four days after reading Carnage #1 & #2 – check

So where do I start this review?

Lesley Jones – I Love the Fuck Out of You

That’s where I’ll start.

I’ve spent four days unable to even start trying to put into words how I feel about this book. I am not eloquent enough, humorous enough or clever enough with words to do it justice, but fuck, do I wish I was.

My love of reading has spanned nearly forty years and as an avid reader I have devoured many, many books across different genres with all types of writing styles as my tastes have changed over the years. The list of all-time favourites that I reread to death or the ones that have touched me for whatever reason and stay with me years after is miniscule in comparison to the amount read however, there are many I liked, lots I loved and some that amazed me but Carnage is in that tiny handful that are special beyond words. This crazy talented author has written this story so raw, real, gritty, sad, heartbreakingly crazy beautiful that I am literally shredded after finishing.

I am going to say very little about the story because of spoilers, to experience these books you need to go in blind because you will not see it coming. No way. No how.

I love him, from the instant I set eyes on him when I was just 11 years old I have loved him and nothing will ever change that, he owns me, he owns my heart and he owns my body and no matter how many lies are told, no matter how many people conspire to keep us apart, despite the fame and the distance, we will find a way.

“Georgia Rae, when we made love you used to cry” … He waits for me to sing my bit. I try to swallow down a sob but I just end up singing through it…
“I said I love you like the stars above, I’ll love you till I die”

Carnage is an edgy coming of age love story that breaks all the rules and transcends the decades. Georgia and Sean’s story will stay with you long after you read the final word.

An emotional, smoking hot, gut wrenching read – yeah thanks for that Goodreads, understatement of the century. Four fucking days later and I have the book hangover from hell. I got the “feels” so bad. I cried Ugly Tears when I finished Carnage #1. Sobbed like a crazy woman. Heartbroken and in awe of an author who took that type of chance. Wrote it as it was meant to be, no matter whether that was going to be the popular choice or not.

Since finishing I have stalked Lesley Jones online (sorry I meant researched…) and discovered that initially it was meant as a standalone but, due to popular demand and threats of violence, she did Carnage#2.

This gets difficult because if I put anything about the story of #2 here then I will spoil #1 for you if you haven’t already read it. So I’m only going to quote one tiny sentence that I loved and not disclose any spoilers.

“Life’s fucked, Kitten. It’s cruel and twisted and it does spiteful things to good people. “

And that’s part of why this book touches you so deeply, because life is fucked and sad and crazy and beautiful with sometimes more bad shit than good, with times you can’t seem to claw your way out of but, if you are really lucky friends, family and that special certain someone will carry you through with love, laughter, tears and no bullshit reality checks. Then that fickle bitch Karma sometimes gives you the good surprises and second chances.

The banter, love and affection between characters is funny as fuck especially between two main characters, I adored them together. I also want a brother like Marley and a friend like ‘No Filter’ Ash! As I’m a woman of a certain age I was LMAO at outfits to impress the boyfriend involving stilettos, fishnets and leather – been there, done that, got the t-shirt!

So, as I sit here re-reading this review I’m as unhappy as I knew I would be. Because these books gutted and shredded me in the best, best way and if I had the words you would all be running off to one click them and experience Carnage. But if this means even just one reader discovers them then it was worth me trying.

Lesley Jones has written the most amazing, heartbreakingly beautiful story I have read in many years with such a punch that I will return to these over years to come just because I won’t be able to resist, the draw is that strong.

 

Lesley Jones I Love The Fuck Out Of YOU!!!!!!!!!! 



Lesley Jones Biography

I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne Australia. It’s a whole new way of life for us down here, we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.

As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football…The round ball version.  I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work. I am also rather partial to a glass… or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.
