PLENTY BY KELLY K. LAVENDER - VIRTUAL & REVIEW TOUR + GIVEAWAY



Plenty
by Kelly K. Lavender

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Erotic Paranormal Suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

When Camille volunteers for the youth outreach program in the small town of Prosperity little does she know that she has put herself in harm's way. Sheriff Griffin, the program leader, and his son, Grant, lord over an empire of criminal activities ranging from - illegal drugs, robbery, murder, political corruption and pornography. In short order, Grant becomes Camille's lover and introduces her to life as a recreational drug user. After Camille weathers a brutal beating by Grant's disapproving Dad, she turns to her newly-widowed, fiery friend Jennifer for help. What can two downtrodden women do to rid a tortured town of its misogynistic Machiavellian sheriff and malevolent mayor?Plenty.

Plenty, the powerful feminist flip side of Fifty Shades of Grey, captivates as a spine-tingling suspense novel about the risky yet all-important road to self-actualization and happiness in spite of a horrible family situation and consequential bad decisions. The dark side of sex kitten training will prove jarring to some readers, but others will see how evil insidiously manifests itself in the lives of injured souls - especially trafficked teens. As in life, a dysfunctional childhood, sets the stage for victimization, while violence and heroin, create the craving to please - all represent tools of the trade to control and peddle young women. Plenty holds special appeal for resilient, smart, resourceful women who rescue themselves and the men who love them. Plenty infused with spice, a lot of naughty-never nice. Not for the faint of heart or for those looking for a tame, sleepy time story. Written by a long-time James Bond  enthusiast, action-packed Plenty jets along at a jolting 007 pace.

EXCERPT

“Are you going to shoot the sheriff’s son in front of his friends for talking to someone? I don’t think so.” Turning his attention back to Camille, he continued, “Well, Camille, are you going to let them lay down their lives for you? Think about Dad and all of his friends, allies, and connections—politicians, peace officers, attorneys, addicts, and folks just needing a favor. Tsk, tsk. What a shame if he had to make a call,” he said with a shake of his head in mock concern.

Excerpt From: Kelly K. Lavender. “Plenty.” iBooks.



MY REVIEW
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The title of this book is pretty accurate, because there is PLENTY, plenty action, emotions, sex, violence, corruption and plenty twists and turns. At first is a little overwhelming, because everything happen in the first chapters, but the story kept me on edge all through until the end. I don't want to give up too much information, because it's really hard to put in words the emotions that I felt reading this story.
Beware!! The author uses a raw vocabulary and some situations are extreme, this is not a book for everybody.
So, are you in or are you out?

    1. I'd work with horses or in finance while doggedly pursuing a career as a screenwriter. I dream of the opportunity to write stories or movie scripts for James Bond, The Transporter or Lara Croft series or tv shows like Blood and Money, Grey's Anatomy or Vampire Diaries. Do you enjoy writing, Mai? Do you plan to write a book?

  3. Thank you Julia BookReader for hosting this book tour!! Thanks for taking the time to read and review my book. I appreciate your intelligent, thoughtful, insightful comments.

    I'm so happy you enjoyed the book. I did a lot of research for this book on many subjects - corrupt peace officers, sexual assault, guns, car crashes and bees. I interviewed Department of Public Safety officers, a physics professor, a bee keeper and paramedics, about medical consequences, to build this book. Also, not surprisingly, I had to research sadism for the antithesis to Fifty.

  6. I don't know what to say about this story. It sounds like a scary mystery and that a lot of bad things happen, but it also seems to have a HEA. I sure hope so. Interesting review.

    1. I tout my novel as the powerful, feminist, flip side to Fifty. I only write allegorical novels because I want to express an opinion or tell a meaningful story. So proud that I won an Eric Hoffer Award for "...writing of significant merit..." as a debut author. I'll always strive to win that award. Having said all of that, my novel would definitely earn an R rating for LSV. These story threads aren't gratuitous but integral to the book. By the way, what's your favorite suspense film?
