SOPHIE

Posted in Uncategorized

Well, it’s official. The last installment of The Boss Series is on-sale. And here is everything you need to know!

Black and white photo of a brunette with long hair, shown from just under the eyes, down to her cleavage. She's wiping the corner of her mouth with her fingertips in a suggestive manner. SOPHIE is printed across the bottom in huge letters.

The conclusion to the internationally bestselling saga…

It’s been fourteen years since Sophie Scaife tried to run away to Tokyo only to find herself seduced and stranded by an enigmatic stranger. Now thirty-two and a reluctant socialite presiding over a lavish Hamptons estate with that stranger and their partner, she’s living a life she’d never dreamed of—and a love more perfect than she could have imagined.

She just never thought she’d end up raising someone else’s children. Technically not a mother—and definitely not cut out for motherhood—Sophie struggles to figure out her role in the parenting of Neil’s precocious granddaughter, Olivia, and El-Mudad’s teen daughters, Amal and Rashida. But when a custody dispute threatens to topple the family they’ve built, Sophie learns just how fiercely she’ll fight for them.

And when a dark secret is exposed, fighting is what the Elwood-Scaife-Atis will have to do to save the life of the last person Sophie ever thought she’d protect.

E-Book: Sophie is currently available in .epub at Smashwords and .mobi at Amazon. I’ve recently switched from uploading .docx files to Smashwords to uploading .epub and I didn’t realize that .epubs didn’t convert to multiple formats the way .docx does. So, I’ll get that fixed AQAP. As always, there’s a gap between when the book comes out and when Smashwords distributes to other major retailers.

Audio: Currently, there isn’t a deal in place for audio, but it’ll happen, I’m sure. Details to come.

International: See above.

Radish: I had so, so wanted Sophie to debut on Radish the same day as the ebook, but I’ve got to coordinate it with Radish’s release schedule. As soon as I know further details, you’ll be the first to know!

I’m really feeling the love today from everyone on social media. This series has truly been a journey for me. I’ve been writing this series through poverty, C-PTSD, epilepsy, three Doctor Whos, two major breakdowns, one broken bone, and a Trump presidency. Thanks to everyone who cheered for Sophie and me along the way.

Onward and upward. New series details coming soon.

    I bought the book last night around 2am thinking “Oh, I’ll read the first chapter before I fall asleep.”

    Nope. 5am and I’m weeping because it’s all over. I couldn’t put it down!

    Sophie has been my gateway drug to dozens of authors & literally hundreds of books. I found my way here because of the 50 Shades recaps, and then you, Jenny, shifted what I read and how I think about feminism and sex and mental health. I’ll be forever grateful to both you & Sophie for taking me on this journey!

  4. Thank you So much for writing these books. They have been such a good thing for me in so many many ways. I’m definitely sad it’s the last book, but it’s also comforting knowing there’s an end.

    The Boss is the book that got me reading romance for the first time since all those Mills & Boons when I was a teenager (I’m speeding towards 50 now…). I started reading Sophie when I finished work yesterday, and basically didn’t put it down til I finished it. I laughed! I cried! I loved it! Thank you, Jenny, for such a wonderful series!

    I finished it in 2 days between working and absolutely loved it. Probably going to be re-reading over the next week. Very sad it’s done.

    I’ve been re-reading the whole series for the last few weeks, and I bought Sophie as soon as the book came out. The damn thing made me cry, and I am absolutely not a crier. I’m going to miss these guys.

    Woo! I just bought it, and am now torn between “I want to read it NOW NOW NOW” and “but once I’ve read it, it will be OVER and Idonwanna!”

    I’m a pretty regular stalker here, which I hope isn’t too weird because this is hands-down my favorite blog/website/whatever ever, but I didn’t check recently enough to get this book the day it came out, which is a bit of a bummer. But I checked back today and downloaded it immediately at like 11AM, at work, and just finished it 7 hours later. (I’m a slow reader.) I was . . . an extremely unproductive employee, but I can’t really bring myself to regret such an incredible ride. I didn’t cry, because I don’t cry at things like this, but I do feel like my chest and skull have been scooped out like ice cream — drained and exhausted and deeply emotional.

    I never wanted to touch a romance book before I discovered this blog, because . . . you know, those are lame and pathetic and not “real” stories. The 50 Shades recaps and other posts about romancelandia worked wonders to disabuse me of that notion, but reading the theory is never quite the same as real-life experience. I’ve never responded so intensely to a fictional work the way I have to this series; this gorgeous rollercoaster — which totally still keeps its emotional impact upon rereads, a super hard putt — has made me a better writer, maybe even a better person, and mostly just an emotional wreck.

    This is all very melodramatic, but I just finished the last page 5 minutes ago and I still feel all wrung out. If you ever read the comments/reviews, Jenny, I don’t have the words to thank you for creating this world and letting us live inside it for a while. I’ll miss Sophie and the rest of her family, but I’m excited to see where you take us next.

    I . . . guess I should go paste this into an Amazon review, because you deserve to have the algorithm fed and there’s no way I’m coming up with *new* things to say. If you’re here because, like I was, you’re a big fan of Jenny’s sense of humor and blog posts and were curious, but really don’t think you could ever get into “rOmAnCe NoVeLs” or enjoy kink, I can’t recommend you pick this series up enough. (But start with the first one; it’s not a series you can just jump into partway through. Plus that first book is free.)

    Not to get all weird, but it kind of changed me in ways I didn’t see coming. Thank you.

    Now I’ve reread the entire series, as one does whenever a new book in a series is released. (Which also means that for a lot of series I know the first books nearly by heart, and the later ones not so much…)

    The upside of rereading is that I get to notice things that I miss on the first readthrough, when I’m so eager to find out what happens that I nearly skip across without taking it all in. And this time, I noticed Valerie.

    She gets a bit of an uneven characterization, because Sophie is something of an unreliable narrator when it comes to Valerie. Sophie interprets her words and actions, and reacts strongly to them – not surprisingly, not a fault, but I feel that I can’t really take Sophie’s word for who Valerie is, and definitely not Neil’s word either because he’s got so much history that he can’t see clearly. So as a reader, what I can go on is what Valerie actually does and says, rather than Neil’s or Sophie’s interpretation.

    So, there’s the scene where Sophie overhears Valerie talking to a friend in the ladies’ room during a party. Valerie says that she’s convinced Neil will break up with Sophie, and Valerie herself has been dropping gentle hints which he seems to take to heart. Cue rage from Sophie, and on my first read I found this entirely warranted, because I saw everything from Sophie’s point of view.

    Now, though, when I read that, I hear something different in Valerie’s tone. I get the feeling that she’s trying to keep her facade up for her friend, that she doesn’t really believe what she’s saying but she can’t face admitting it to someone else. And especially, she can’t handle having to deal with that during a party for her daughter.

    I feel so sorry for poor Valerie.

    In a different but slightly related vein, how do you feel about fanfic being written about your characters?
