MANIK by Amo Jones
Author: Amo Jones
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: September 29, 2018
I’m Beatrice Kennedy, but everyone calls me Beat. I live a low-key life, fresh out of college and drifting from town to town until I find my home.
I love music, and how it stirs even the deepest and untouched parts of your soul. Depending on what you choose to listen to, would depend on what it touches. It’s the drug we all damper in, only different strains. My strain is Jazz. The smooth instrumental strums that take over me. The sound of cigar smoke, bourbon and an old dusty fedora hat. My strain wasn’t rap, and it sure wasn’t laced with some A-class shit like murky blue eyes casted down from the Lord and the Devil’s handcrafted smile. I knew who he was—the whole world did. One fateful night set off a chain of events, events that no one was coming back from. You can’t save people who don’t want to be saved. You can’t pull them up from the ocean when they’ve latched themselves to an anchor. Love was my anchor, destruction was the water that was drowning me, and the rope that was so tightly clamped around my ankles, was woven with the lyrics of Aeron Romanov-Reed, also known as, 'Manik. He steals hearts from all around the world, but one night, he stole something that wasn’t his to steal.
*this is a full length standalone.

"I'm drawn to his shadows so I can see who they reflect."
Amo Jones never fails to blow my mind. I love her twisted mind and the characters that she gives a voice. Never a dull moment and never a minute of sleep until I turn the last page. She's always good for a book hangover.
Manik is one of her best alpha assholes. I know that you will love/hate him as much as I do. "She's awoken the beast."
Beatrice (aka Beats) is a gifted dancer but is currently working as a bartender. She's stayed at her current job longer than most because Kyle, her coworker, and roommate, is the closest to a family that she's felt in a while. All was right in her world until the night that Manik walked into the club where she worked. Even I felt the chemistry between them. That would be a night that would change her life forever...
Manik is used to getting what he wants. If it's not given freely, he takes it. He took her.
He's so jaded and rude and arrogant and hot and sexy without trying. If she ever gets free she needs to go to the doctor and be checked for Stockholm Syndrome, that's a real thing, right? Her head wants to go home, but her body responds to him without asking permission.
It just gets gooder and gooder from there. It's dark and dirty and full of secrets and lies. It's sexy and scandalous and full of bitterness and betrayal. It's all that and more. I didn't want it to end and I didn't stop reading until it did, the following day. I'm ready for more of Amo Jones, wherever she wants to take me. The line forms here...
Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.
