THE BABY is here!

Posted in Uncategorized

The Baby is available on Amazon and Smashwords TODAY!

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.

    You bitch.
    I read the first couple chapters. I can’t read anymore because I am at work and I have customers. It would be poor customer service if I started bawling my eyes out. I haven’t read it all yet, but I know it is going to be beautiful and heart-wrenching. I can imagine it was a hard decision to make and never have I ever felt so sad about made-up people.
    You did it again and I cannot wait to read the rest of the book when I am all alone in my bed, so I can cry freely..

    I downloaded The Baby yesterday evening after dinner.
    I finished it at 4:30 this morning. I really meant to get some sleep last night, but Neil and Sophie had other plans for me.
    I am having SO MANY FEELINGS.

  4. Oh gawd I have been trying not to cry at work.

    MAYBE A BIT OF A SPOILER:

    I kinda feel like there should be a content warning about psychiatric hospitalization? But that is probably just me because I was hospitalized for a week last month against my will (ultimately it was a huge help, but I still resent my doc for it and am looking for a new one).

    • I feel like I should follow-up on this: I really should have taken the trigger warnings more seriously. It’s been a long time since I felt like I needed them and recent events in my life should have alerted me to that. Oh well. Anyway, it was pretty upsetting for me and I ended up just having a bad night (just crying, so not really terrible). I could have stopped reading, but I didn’t, so I have no one to blame but myself for that.

      I guess I just want people to really consider the trigger warnings carefully before reading if they have a history of depression, suicidal ideation, or attempts (their own or someone else’s). The book was really incredible and all of the representation felt very real to me. How Sophie handled the initial response was amazing.

    Bought it this morning, downloaded, wandered around the house with phone in one hand and a tissue in the other, weeping.

    You have really made me care about all of these characters over the course of the series, but I was actually a little surprised at how much of a gut punch this all was.

    You’re one hell of a writer. But… I don’t know that I’ll be obsessively re-reading this entry in the series as much as I did the others. It’s just so raw and brings up so many deep feelings.

    I finished the book, with great difficulty. It was highly upsetting because:

    **SPOILER**

    One of my biggest personal fears was played out in the first few chapters. I had to put the book down and take a walk because I was too upset about what happened. I didn’t realize how much I actually cared for Emma and Michael until that point. Neil and and Valerie’s pain broke my heart too. So well done, you made me so sad but I couldn’t stop reading once I picked it back up. Thank you for writing characters who are multi-faceted and realistically flawed.

    OK, so I read THE BABY in one go early today, and obviously it was FANTASTIC.

    I’m currently under the influence of narcotics due to an injury, and so my ability to modulate my mood/behavior isn’t at all all-time high. So I started bawling pretty loudly, and my father came running in to check on me. I had to play it off as being because of the pain … the physical pain, not the emotional torment you put me through, that is.

    Basically, you’re amazing.

    I had just finished reading “Angela’s Ashes” the night before, and when I saw this and remembered that The Baby came out today, I bought it right away thinking “Oh, good! Some nice, steamy romance to offset the crushing depression I felt reading about children in desperate poverty!”

    …and then I actually started reading it.

    ALL THE FEELINGS aside, I enjoyed it a lot! Well done, Jenny, and congratulations!

    I admit to being an emotional wreck while reading this book. Given what’s happened in my life recently, and the trigger warnings you put up, I probably shouldn’t have read it just now but I couldn’t help myself. You’ve made me fall in love with the characters and the series and I wanted to know what happened next. As upset and wrung out as I am, it was a beautifully written, lovely ending to a fantastic series. Above all, I want to thank you for sharing with us–reading about Sophie’s emotions from her point of view was cathartic. It feels like someone else gets what I’m going through. It made me feel like it’s OK to feel this way and like I’m less alone.

    So, from the back cover description, I figured that something would happen like exactly what happened. I didn’t realize how much I really liked Emma and Michael until I read these first few chapters. Wow, just…..Wow. I felt like I was really there and experiencing it for real with everyone else. I love writing that makes me feel like that and brings real emotions out in me. Job well done, Jenny. Never stop being you, never stop writing, and always know that we are with you for every step of your journey.

    So I have to say, I’m not one to generally cry or get very emotionally attached to a lot of characters; but some of this really hit me like a punch in the gut. Well done. I found the way the characters dealt with theses situations heartbreakingly realistic, and I love that you didn’t shy away from how difficult dealing with a loved one’s mental illness can be. My one complaint is after they return from Iceland, things seemed to wrap up….rather quickly from there. The confrontation scene was AMAZINGLY well written, but it just seemed like after that the wrap-up was a bit….rushed. Of course, that could just be me wishing for more of these characters.

    Also, after reading the trigger warnings, I do have to say that I knew almost right away exactly what was going to happen based on them and the blurb; while I know trigger warnings can be incredibly useful for some people( and I’m personally never one to care for spoilers) I almost wonder if there should have been been a bit of a spoiler warning ahead of that since it happened to be such a MASSIVE part of the book as a whole.

    Wow Jenny, I didn’t just cry, I sobbed. This is the second book that has ever made me feel so sad. Your characters are so loveable and real, and the writing so completely enthralling, that I think I forgot that I was reading a book, and genuinely felt like I was experiencing the events first hand. The biggest problem I have now is that I’m not sure if I will ever recover enough to read the series again without remembering all of the emotions from this one!
    But well done, absolutely fantastically written. As others have already said, please never ever stop writing. You are so talented, and deserve so much success.

    This isn’t really a romance novel. A romance novel would be Sophie realises she could do better and runs away with Emir. What happened to Emir anyway???

    I just didn’t understand WHY she loved Neil. Because I didn’t. I ended up hating him. Sorry, I didn’t love this.

    • I’m sorry that you ended up feeling that way. Dealing with a loved one’s depression and/or suicide attempt is in no way easy, but it’s important to remember that it’s due to illness. A person who is severely depressed is not entirely in control of their own mind. In my mind, leaving a person over their depression would be akin to leaving them over diabetes. I hope that makes sense.

    I needed to thank you for adding the little bits of comedy in the middle of a heavy story. I actually lol’d at “And my current action was to slap my jealousy in the face and shove her into a vat of shut-the-fuck-up.” Because all I could do was imagine “Jealousy” starting to do a pirouette and just getting backhanded. Wish the Inner Goddess had gotten that treatment!

    Like many others here, I read the whole thing in one day. What happened with Emma and Michael actually made me incredibly sad, which is a testament to what an amazing writer you are. The scene I loved the most was, however, when Emir came over to help Sophie – despite being a fairly fantastical premise, it felt incredibly down to Earth and real. I do, however, think a bit less of Neil after this book – not due to what he’s done, but due to his perpetual cycle of shutting Sophie out in attempt to hang on to his control freak tendencies. It was apparent even after their first breakup in the boss, but really became a great character flaw over the subsequent installments. Nonetheless, I adore the series and while I think the Baby is the perfect last book for it, I secretly hope you will write some more 🙂

    I re-read the Boss series pretty frequently. Whenever I need entertainment, I turn to your books (I’d be ashamed to tell you how many times I’ve read Penny and Ian’s stories). However, after finishing The Baby, I feel that it’s probably going to be a one time experience. It was just too emotionally draining. I’ve grown to love these characters so much, and seeing them go through that pain was very difficult. It put me in a sour mood for a few days because I felt like I was experiencing it in real life.

    You’re very gifted for making these characters so real to me.

    wow, nice work. I recently witnessed a similar situation, and your treatment of the mental health issues was spot on. I came for the tear down of 50 shades, stayed for the sexy smut, and ended up with something much more intense and emotional than I expected. that said, i probably won’t be turning down pages in this one for “quality tub time” as Sophie might say, but it was well worth the journey.

    I wouldn’t object to anymore Sophie/Gena, if you can find it in your heart.

    I just wanted to tell you that I think you are an absolutely fantastic writer; I don’t often find authors who create characters that I become as emotionally attached to as yours, and I’m glad that you have the balls to do what you did knowing that some of your readers would be upset (even if you did it to my favorite character). Many kudos to you.
    But, for the life of me, I can’t get past the fifth chapter.
    My father died last month. On top of being an emotional wreck, I’ve had to do all the death certificate/cremating/social security stuff on my own since my brother’s out of state. I just finished picking out what to wear at his funeral. At work last week, a client that we’ve known for several years told us that his teenage daughter died in a horrific car accident that made the local news. I’ve been looking forward to this book for months, but by the time it came out I was SO EXCITED to have something to distract me from real life for just a little while…

    FAIL .

    I’ll probably finish your book next year. In December. Then I’ll let you know how fantabulously awesome it is. Until then… can’t do it. Too many feels.

    I have to agree with so many people on this! I am guilty of reading way too many romance novels and I cried in the past over something that has happened to one of the characters. But I have never experienced what I have while reading The Baby. I can’t even express how badly I was waiting for this book to come out and I told myself I would buy it on my birthday, and no offense, I am soooo glad that I bought it early! It took me a few days to recover from reading this! I truly felt like I was there! Like I was a part of the book and everything that was happening to Neil, Sophie, and Valerie was happening to me too! I finished the book in seven hours and that was with putting it down more times than I can count because I just could not stop crying! I have never felt depression before until now (overdramatic, I know), but it’s very true! I remember a point where I had to put my iPad down so I can try to stop crying and I kept saying “why!?! Why would Jenny do this!” I honestly don’t think I will ever understand why, even though I tried.

    Sorry! I know this sounds negative! But it’s really not! I think you are an absolutely amazing writer! To make your readers feel so attached to the characters and to make the story feel so real is truly a talent! Neil and Sophie have been my favorites ever since I read the first chapter of The Boss! I have read each book more times than one probably should have read a book! I hope you write more about Sophie and Neil! Not only because I love them too much to want this to end but also because I guess I want to know that they really are okay! That they have truly gotten past this! I kept imagining what I would feel if I was Sophie, and I’m not sure I could have forgiven Neil so easily! It would have taken me much longer!

    But again, I hope you write more about Neil and Sophie, and I hope I won’t need an entire box of tissues for that book! 🙂

    Now that I’m not an emotional wreck about the losses and grief, though………….. I’m having another set of responses. I am feeling a little annoyed and frustrated that yet another character that was fully and happily child free wound up “seeing the light” and finding the True Joy Of Parenting and seeing that it’s ok to have unexpected kids because You’ll Love Them When They’re Your Own, etc etc etc. With how sensitively Sophie’s choices were treated throughout the series, I feel very betrayed that this is how the story ended. I’m really sorry, Jenny, but I felt I had to say something. It was really disappointing.

      While I see your point and have several very happily childless couple-friends, I don’t agree with your analysis. I don’t think Sophie “sees the light” of becoming a mother. I think Sophie simply puts on her big girl pants and realizes that her husband and his granddaughter will need her, regardless of her not wanting children. I think the realism of this story is what makes it so amazing. You make decisions, you decide how you want your life to be, then BLAM! shyt happens and you have to make adjustments to your plans and wants. I think Sophie’s acceptance of a situation she wanted nothing whatsoever to do with shows her maturity and depth of love for Neil, which in turn overflowed to Emma (and Michael) and Olivia. This is the opinion of someone how did get unexpectedly (unwantedly) pregnant and chose to raise my child alone. I’m ashamed to say, there were plenty of days that I wondered WTF I had gotten into. I honestly love my child and probably wouldn’t change a thing, but there are STILL days when I wonder how my life would have turned out if I had made a different choice.

    Oof. I’m not certain reading The Baby was good for my mental health, but even if it wasn’t, it was totally worth it.
    I don’t think I’ve cried that much in one stretch since I was in my deepest period of depression, but the difference was that this time I was crying for someone else’s pain, and it was so incredibly cathartic, even though I felt hungover for the following two days.

    I really hope there are more books in the future for Neil and Sophie, because even though we left them in a somewhat okay place, it really wasn’t far enough from the pain to feel happy for them.

    Jenny, I’m not sure I’ll be able to reread this one the way I do the others, but I’m pretty sure this is the best one. Congratulations!

    I would just like to say that I was reluctant to even begin the series but a friend of mine insisted even though I am kind of a prude. I loved the the 1st 4 books and was furious with her when she told me the final book wasn’t out yet (I read them in August.) So I couldn’t wait to get The Baby and read it. When I read the first books my friend and I would cast the book using the actors of the today and we had some interesting choices. But I myself made up a soundtrack to go with the books. My music choices made thereading them so much more interesting and every time I here them I remember different scenes in the book. The theme song for “The Baby” is Sam Smith’s “Lay me down.” When I finished reading the book I listened to this song and I cried for Neil, Sophie, Emma, Michael, and Olivia. Hell I even cried for Valerie. This song has new meaning for me. I was truly moved by this book while this is far from my life I was able to identify with all characters. Bravo Jenny this book was well written and I would recommend to everyone. Best bookof them all!!!!!!

    Please write just an other book, it can’t end like this.
    I hope to read more Sophie and Neil in their kinky world with Gena and Emir, and how they manage this new life with what they are now and what they always been.
    In the past I suffered of depression and I knew on my skin what it is the suicidal ideation, so I totally understand what means when a sorrow and a grief like that fall your world apart and change you completely. When things like that happen a part of you is destroyed, and you remain a person in half or less.
    It’s true, a perfect “happy ending” would it be with the end of the 4th book, but you remind us that real life has not always the perfect happy ending. And people aren’t always strong when they face tragedy like this. They change and they have to deal to what remains.
    And it’s for this reason that we should see them again, maybe cheerful and witty and kinky.
    So please, you made us suffer so much, now give us a bit of sweetness and hotness 😉

    I find that “Coldplay -Fix you” could be a theme song for this 5th book.

    Sherry, I’m on the same page as you. My S.O. is godfather to his niece and is named in the parent’s will as who would take her if something were to happen. I am avowedly anti raising kids by choice, but I’ve never thought twice about if Sophia needed to live with us. She would be welcome. She’s family and that’s what you do.

    I’m casting my vote for a Deja/Holli book at some point.

    Okay, now that I’ve read the book, I can visit your blog again. 🙂

    First of all – Damn, Jenny. Are you competing with Shonda Rhimes for ways to destroy my life??? Also, do you just HATE Neil for some reason? I get it, bad things happen to people sometimes. But why does everything in the world have to happen to Neil? Neil has to deal with the death of his beloved mother, alcoholism, a bit of a drug problem, cancer, the death of his daughter, his own attempted suicide, etc. You’re treating him like Shonda treats Meredith Grey. How is this going to play out in the end? Sophie dies saving someone’s life and Neil has to deal with the fall out? C’mon now, give the poor man a break.

    But second – What an incredibly gifted storyteller you are! I full on sobbed with Emma and Michael died, and I didn’t even care about Michael that much. I was curled up in the corner of my bed sobbing and whispering “Not Emma, not Emma! Oh my god, please not Emma!” as if I actually knew the girl and she wasn’t just some fictional character.

    Seriously, though? I wish Sophie had slept with Emir at the end there. In the grand scheme of things, I think they’re pretty well suited for each other. So if that could somehow happen in whatever next book you write for them… well, thanks. 🙂

    I finally had time to read “The Baby.” Jenny, it was outstanding. Thank you for making me care about these characters so much that I shouted “oh NO, NO!” on a crowded ferry and got some very concerned looks. Brilliant, just brilliant.

    I’m only at the start of chapter 6 and I’m trying to distract myself to continue reading because I know I will have an emotional outburst of tears and just waiting for the perfect night to continue reading. Well done, madam

    I loved your book as well as the whole serie! I rarely cry over any book. However I had to take a few break reading this one (I still read it in one day). You managed to depict the whole thing pretty realistically, so much that I had to remind myself it was not my life.
    I jutst have one regret; the ending happened a bit to fast for me. SPOILER After their return, one last argument in the “pavillon français” (though i loved that she managed to express her anger even if she knew it was not Neil’s fault), and it just ends. I mean, ok! one year later everyone is almost back to normal, and happy and everything. But I feel the recovery was too easy, it does not happen that way in life… (And I have to admit that I also did not want the book to end 🙂 )
    All this to say, thank you, this book and the other ones were geat, and I kind of feel empty now that I finished them. I hope to read new ones soon!
