Manik by Amo Jones : Release Blitz

‘Manik, an all-new standalone Dark Romance from Amo Jones is Available Now!

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.

My Review


Rating : 3.5 Stars

Aeron Romanov-Reed, aka Manik, is a sexy, intense and secretive rock star and the son of a Russian mob boss. From the start of the book, Manik was a total mystery and a very dark character. I loved his vulnerability though. He seemed to be always fighting against himself, he is a deeply troubled and damaged man. He is loyal to his mob family, but his actions clearly haunt him.

The heroine, Beatrice Kennedy, is just trying to make something of her life when she is hunted, captured and locked up in a basement, as part of a revenge scheme, by a man who seems to hate her without reason. The way their relationship develops is questionable, the lines between consent and non-consent are blurred.

Obviously, neither one of them is looking for a relationship, but they are drawn to each other. Their forced encounter changes the course of their lives. But there are secrets that threaten to tear them apart. In Manik’s violent world, loved ones are liabilities and could get hurt or killed. Their forbidden love could destroy them.

Manik was a quick and fast read. It was also a tough read because of the dark and gritty subject matter, there is a lot of violence. The story started off a little rocky for me, the characters were at times very confusing, but their connection was undeniable. The story was gripping from start to finish even if it was a little rushed and predictable. Overall, this was an entertaining read.

Many thanks to the author and Social Butterfly PR for my copy of this book!

About Amo Jones

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.
