AN ALL-NEW STANDALONE FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JULIA KENT
One hundred years ago when I was young and impulsive (okay, it was five, alright? Five years ago...) I let my boyfriend take, let's just say... compromising pictures of me.
(Shut up. It made sense at the time).
Surprise! The sleazy back-stabbing jerk posted them on a website and, well, you can guess what happened. That's right.
I'm a meme. A really gross one.
You've seen the pictures. And if you haven't - don't ask. And don't look!
As face recognition software online improves, I get tagged on social media whenever anyone shares my pictures. You try getting a thousand notifications a day, all of them pictures of your tatas.
So. I'm done.
It's time for revenge. Let him see how it feels! But how do you get embarrassingly intimate pictures of your jerkface ex who double-crossed you five years ago?

Reviewers, Here's How I Beat the Big, Bad Bots on the 'Zon

As Amazon works to combat fake reviews and paid reviews, it gets harder and harder for ethical reviewers. Reviews are being critiqued more carefully and less is allowed. The problem comes in when Amazon refuses to communicate with us exactly what the problem is with a particular review so we can fix it and avoid the same mistake in the future.

It's frustrating, to say the least.  I've gotten weary enough of my reviews being held back that I started paying attention and critiquing my own reviews to discern what might possibly have resulted in them being held hostage for as many as ten days.  After evaluating and pondering, here is what I think is happening.

The Obvious



Amazon is strict about swear words in reviews. Most are obvious, and you can get creative in finding replacements like frick, flock, duck, etc.  Others should be completely okay in context, but the bots don't seem to read context.

Saying something like, "Sebastian's life had been a living hell before…

JULY 2019 MOST ANTICIPATED ROMANCES

My only goal this weekend is to ensure my sister's wedding stays on track. As if keeping my family in line isn't enough to turn me into an alcoholic, the best man has decided I'm rigid and argues that I'm using my job as a crutch to avoid love. Now he has pulled me into his chaotic world, and devised pranks to prove to me he's right.
At first, I fail to see how such childish antics will hep me escape myself, but I quickly realize there might just be a method to his madness and Ethan Wiley may just pull off his biggest prank yet.
The one that wins my heart.






My Review

Give me a hero who knows exactly who he wants, will let nothing stand in his way and even has a well formulated plan to get his girl and I can’t help but go all goosebumpy and swoony. And that's exactly who we have in Ethan Wiley and, quite honestly, Sienna Sadl…
