Blog Tour Stop with Extract - The Obsession by Amanda Robson

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for Obsession by Amanda Robson

Publishes on 4th May in eBook and 1st June in paperback. It’s already infected the minds of its readers, and it’s coming after you, too…
“Compelling and thoroughly addictive” KATERINA DIAMOND
“Thrilling, unputdownable – I was obsessed by this book” BA PARIS
A taut thriller full of page-turning suspense” EMMA FLINT
“Amanda Robson expertly injects menace into the domestic … a dark and disturbing journey” HOLLY SEDDON
A compelling psychosexual thriller, with some very dark undertones” PAUL FINCH

What They Say:

One evening, a wife asks her husband a question: who else would you go for, if you could?

It is a simple question – a little game – that will destroy her life.

Carly and Rob are a perfect couple. They share happy lives with their children and their close friends Craig and Jenny. They’re lucky. But beneath the surface, no relationship is simple: can another woman’s husband and another man’s wife ever just be good friends?

Little by little, Carly’s question sends her life spiralling out of control, as she begins to doubt everything she thought was true. Who can she trust? The man she has promised to stick by forever, or the best friend she has known for years? And is Carly being entirely honest with either of them?

Obsession is a dark, twisting thriller about how quickly our lives can fall apart when we act on our desires.

Read on for an exclusive extract from the book!

I pad to the front door, still wet, water puddling around my feet, tracing my passage across Amtico flooring. I open the door and Carly is standing in front of me. My boys run past me into the house. Always running, hurtling towards the next thing; this evening it’s a Spiderman cartoon. They disappear into the sitting room.
By Jenni’s standards, Carly is wearing too much make-up, but I like it. It suits her. She is bright.
Carly Burton bright. Stage bright, with her red shoes, red lipstick and lemon-bleached fifties hairstyle. She smiles, a Hollywood smile so wide she might swallow me. I step back a little and look down at her well-toned legs, her pointed knees. The sort of knees they use on Jimmy Choo photoshoots. And then I blush. I look up, away from her pussy pelmet skirt to find her saucer-like blue eyes watching me.
‘Thanks, Carly,’ I say. ‘Thank you so much. I owe you big time. One day I’ll make it up to you. I’ll pay you back.’
She puts her hand on my shoulder. It burns into me. I smell her breath as she leans towards me. Mint and vanilla. Strong enough to get high on.
‘Sooner rather than later, please,’ she says, tracing her index finger across my right cheek.
I catch her hand in mine.
‘What are you playing at, Carly?’ I ask as quietly as possible; I do not want the children to hear this.


This book is going to be brilliant and I an very eager to read it! Thanks to Amanda and Helena Sheffield for allowing me to be part of this amazing blog tour!

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!

What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
