One Week to THE BABY!

Posted in Uncategorized

Hey everybody! We’re a week away from the release of The Baby!  I’m so excited for you to read this book. But so far, I haven’t posted much about it.  I previously released an excerpt (that hadn’t been through proofreading yet, so ignore the typos),  but today, I’m releasing the blurb (or, “back cover copy”, as we old-timers say).

The cover of The Baby, on which a baby grasps a man's finger.

 

When life unravels, someone has to wind it up again. Sophie Scaife has found herself in such a position one time too many. She should be celebrating a new year and bountiful success; instead, she’s trying desperately to hold her world together as it tears apart.

For Sophie and her husband, billionaire Neil Elwood, coupling the domesticity of marriage and their steamy games of Dominance and submission comes naturally. Rekindling their sinfully kinky affair with an old flame makes their passion burn hotter than ever, and Neil’s lust for Sophie is matched only by his drive in undertaking an ambitious new philanthropic venture.

But in the wake of Neil’s greatest triumph comes a staggering life change neither of them are prepared for. Overnight, Sophie finds herself in a new reality, wholly unlike the life she’d planned. As emotions run high, Sophie struggles to reconcile the husband she cherishes with a man she no longer knows; a man she loves too much to let go without a fight…

Content warning: contains mention of suicide and suicidal ideation, as well as recovery.

The Baby will be available at Amazon, Smashwords on November 10, and all other retailers as they make it available. If you read on Nook, Kobo or the iBooks platform,  those formats are always available from Smashwords, as is the option to read directly on the Smashwords site. The paperback edition will follow.

One thing I beg of you is to avoid spoilers for this book, and to avoid spoiling it for others. There is been a lot of speculation with regards to the title, and  and I’m sure there will be even more speculation with the release of this blurb. It would be awesome if you tag spoilers on social media for this one, and I would really appreciate it.

    The feels! First reading that this is the last of The Boss series, now the hint that all is not well in Sophie and Neil’s marriage – I feel like hiding under a rock until release day to avoid this suspense! I can’t see either of them cheating. So what is it?! *deep calming breath*

      I thought something similar myself when I saw the blurb, and then they take her kid in?

  10. well, I already don’t read these in public in because of the smexy times, but i’m afraid that this will make me look like a weirdo on public transit in a whole different way. Dear Joel, Jenny, please don’t kill off anyone I love.

    Hey Jenny, I don’t know if you’ll read this but I wanted to thank you for your trigger warning. I’m a huge fan of the Boss series, I’ve read each book multiple times. They never get old. I’ve been looking forward to reading The Baby since you announced it, but now I’m going to have to wait. I’ve struggled with mental illness now for a decade and reading anything to do with suicide at the level of health I’m at would not good.
    I’m seriously so thankful for the trigger warning, lots of people like to mock them but they’re so helpful. As much as I cannot wait to learn more about the Bossverse I’m going to hold off on reading your next book until I’m doing better. I guess what I’m trying to say is thank you for giving me a heads up.

    Is this book still coming out? It’s the 10th here in Australia and it’s not listed on Amazon and I can’t actually find any promo material anywhere :/

      Yup! I’m in the US, so it’ll be more like the 11th for you. And I don’t do much promo. I’m low-key like that.

    Gah! I’m going to kick myself in a few hours when I have to be up for work but the book was/is amazing! I can’t believe it’s the last one in this particular series. 🙁

    Oh Jenny you’ve got me really worried. Absolutely love the series and last time just before The Ex you replied to a post and said Sophie and Neil would be together forever! Well I’m holding you to that cos I am just going to cry if anything bad happens to their marriage.
