The Letters: A Carnage Novella Book Summary
It's just a box of letters, right?
Words that were written a long time ago.
From a boy to the girl that he missed. From a man to the woman he loved.
But what if those words carried more impact than anyone realised?
Will they finally give Georgia the closure she needs and lessen the guilt she battles every day?
Or will everything she thought she knew about the boy and man who wrote them and the life they shared be forever altered?
All will be revealed in The Letters.
A story about life, love, and acceptance.

My Review (ARC provided)
5 stars!

Damn, Lesley Jones took me by surprise with this book. I expected to bawl through the entire thing, and although there were many times I teared up it wasn't as bad as I anticipated. Of course I needed chocolate and wine but that goes without saying when you read her novels. ;)

So I've always been team Sean, I thought Georgia and him belonged together, I thought they were soul mates. Well this book made me fall hard for Cam. It's not that I didn't like him before because I really did but dare I say I think now Georgia and Cam were meant to be and belong together. Ahhhh...I don't know, I'm torn.
"We'd taken a long and winding road, with unimaginable loss and heartbreak along the way, to get to each other, but we got here."

We get a lot more of Cam and Georgia than I thought we would in this book but I'm glad. I'm glad we saw how Sean was feeling through his words in the letters to G, but I'm also glad we saw how they affected Georgia and Cam.
Lesley always writes with passion and meaning she has a realness in her writing that makes you feel like you're living it. I loved this book and the way it made me feel. There was also a scene that was a laugh out loud moment for me. It is between Georgia, Jimmie, and Ashley and as I was reading it I took a sip of wine and spit it out everywhere.

Lesley has done it again with her words, she has evoked many feelings in me. I am blown away with how much I loved this book but also, Georgia and Cam together.

"I thought you and Maca had an epic love story, but you and Cam, that's just... I don't even know what to say, George. You're like magnets or something."

I highly recommend!
***make sure you read the Carnage series first though!***

Marley: A Carnage Novel

Want to know what really happened in that hotel room in Paris?
Want to know if the rumours of Marley, Sean and their sexploits were true?
We got to watch Georgia fall apart but what was Sean going through in those four years they were separated?
Marley will give you the answers but he might just break your heart along the way.
"‘So, they want me to write a book? They want to know about my band, my life, my loves and my losses. But they have no idea what they’re asking for. If I give them what they want, they’ll get so much more than the sex and drugs and the rock and roll they’re expecting. They’ll get the secrets that I’ve kept for so long, they’ll get an insight into the person I really am, or at least was. They think they know my story, they know nothing.
If I do this, if I write honestly and give them the ugly truth, people will get hurt. People that I love, people that have already suffered in the worst possible ways.
Do I do this, or do I walk away? Taking my secrets to the grave."
Marley is an adult contemporary romance. It contains content suitable only for grownups with an open mind. There are scenes of group sex which include m/f/m a little bit of f/m/m and even some f/f/f/m/m/f/f/f. There is drinking and drug taking involved. A lot of swearing, some Essex slang and some very high emotion. Please don’t complain after reading this book that you weren't warned.
 And yes, of course you’ll need tissues.
