TCP_RELEASE BLITZ
The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas Publication Date: May 22nd, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance
TCP Final Cover
Her father is The King of England.
She is The Controversial Princess.
Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors – lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.
That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her – his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.
But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.
And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

Meet Jodi:
Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction.
Jodi went on to self-publish the second book in the trilogy, Beneath This Man in Jan 2013, just before Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, picked up the popular trilogy and the unknown Jodi. The third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time.
With so much love, enthusiasm and a thirst for her words from her readers, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. Her first stand-alone novel, THE PROTECTOR, released in September 2016 and has since been nominated for a Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. Jodi’s next stand-alone novel. THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017.
All seven of her published novels have hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as the Sunday Times list and various international best seller lists. Her work is now published in over 24 languages across the world.
Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a mojito addict, is famous for her obsession with Converse, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers

Title: Keep Happy
Author: A.C. Bextor
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: May 14, 2018
Cover Designer: Margeet Asselbergs of Rebel Edit And Design

Those who think they know me would tell you I’m a caring mother, a loyal friend, and a dutiful wife. They’d say the golden path which led me here is the road every little girl dreams of taking.


However, the guise of my happy existence has come to be just that—an illusion. A mask of contentment intended for the world to believe.

Not many years into my marriage, I became an abandoned housewife to an adulterous husband. A proud, but sad, mother of two beautiful daughters. 
My days were spent somewhere lost between empty and alone.
Then he came back. 
Mason Cole offered a second chance to share the life we were supposed to have together. He gave me a glimpse of myself. The woman I'd forgotten long ago. 
My road to hell was paved with good intentions. But sometimes good intentions get lost amidst a heart's desire.
At least mine did.
Now I’ll tell you why.




Author Freya Barker: “I have yet to meet an AC Bextor book I didn’t like, but Keep Happy just moved that bar even higher.”

Michella: “A gripping story of love and loss that expands over years.”

Linda Diamond: “Wow I am a huge fan a A.C. Bextor and this book is absolutely amazing!!”
Opening my eyes, I find what I knew I would. My life’s happiness coming to full circle. All the memories of us together push forward. All the laughter, intimacy, and peace emerge. Everything we had, everything I never expected to end. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye. 
I don’t think I ever truly did.
“Be with me,” I whisper. 
“I’m not sure I can do that,” he returns with reverence. 
“Be with me,” I say again.
Mason drops his head, staring to the ground at our feet. 
“We do this, it’ll change you, Katie,” he tells me. “It’ll cut deep.”
Mason doesn’t know about Thomas and his life outside our marriage. He doesn’t understand how long my days have been or the grief each is filled with. He couldn’t fathom my reasons for staying in a marriage because I’ve promised my daughters the life they deserve. An oath not unlike the one Thomas gave me on our wedding day, but one stronger and more protective, as only a maternal promise could be.
Grabbing his hand that now cups my cheek, I lace my fingers with his. 
A subtle sob breaks through my words but manage, “Mason, being with you again won’t cut me.” 
“It will,” he assures. 
“It doesn’t matter if it does,” I reply. 
“Of course it fucking matters.”
“No,” I assert, shaking my head. “My heart is already bleeding.”


You have to understand that I try and not DNF a book and I'm probably in a really harsh mood right now, but this book...where do I start? Do I start where, Mason, the hero is having sex with another woman but pretending it's the heroine? Or do I start where the heroine has an affair with the hero because her husband had an affair? Two wrongs don't make a right but boy does it in this book and don't get me started on the...but he did it first excuse!! Seriously I'm kind of sick of authors writing stories or books with the trope that cheating is cool as long as the other person is not "really" with the person they're with. The writing was good, but nowhere near this author's first series and I had to go back and read that because I wanted to make sure it was the same author. This book unfortunately just didn't do anything for me in the sense that in the end I was like...whatever.


AC Bextor lives in a small town in the Midwest. When she's not writing she can be found reading or watching her favorite sports teams. She enjoys spending time outside fishing, swimming, or camping.

My Review

What can I say about this book that’s not gonna make me sound like an absolute gob?  I didn’t really like it.  I wish I did because I’ve been looking forward to it for months, which might be why it rated so low on my scale.  Maybe I was in a foul mood while reading this book…I don’t know, but I’m reading everything that people are saying about “How strong Madison is” to “How empowered the character Madison is” and I’m sitting over here going…”Did y’all read the same book I just read?”  Seriously?? 

Let’s break this book down into real life, shall we?  If this had happened in real life…most all of these men-children would be in jail serving death row.  Let’s be honest and throw some realism on this b****.  There’d be some lovin’ going on, but it would be in the big house.  My problem with this book is probably gonna get me in trouble and I just don’t care…this book doesn't portray what real love is.  Real love is about men stepping up and being men.  It’s not about pushing boundaries and seeing how far you can push someone until they break emotionally.  This bothered me to my core.  If you’re gonna write a novel, whether it be suspense, romance, erotic romance...whatever – then fine…but to have a man treat a woman how the hero and heroine treat each other is in complete opposite of what the book is trying to “so call portray” and the women who read these think that it’s perfectly okay to have a man call you a derogatory term….it isn’t.  It’s not okay to make your husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend bleed for extracurricular fun.  It’s not okay to hit your significant others.  I don’t care who you are and I don’t care if you’re doing it during playtime…if it’s taken out on someone in the moment of anger – it moves beyond that.  This is why we have a slew of information on the internet about rape culture and assault.  This is why we tell our children early on about the right to say no, why we give them proper information about when and why it's okay to say “no” and that just because books like this make it seem like it’s romantic to have “hate sex” - it’s not.  It’s disturbing.  I wasn’t going to DNF because I was going to get all the way through this book because I work in mental health and I wanted to see if maybe there was a message in this book…BUT THERE IS NO MESSAGE!  It’s glorified rape culture and a girl who likes to be passed around to a bunch of guys because she can’t make up her mind her body stop.  

I have never read a book and thought to myself “I know this author has daughters and for her to write this, makes me alarmed.  Not just as a professional in the mental health field, but as someone who wouldn’t want a child to ever read that.” 

There were so many characters in this book that they blurred together and after awhile I was writing down who they are.  Bishop was making decisions that thirteen-year-olds make and I was like “Dude if you don’t like what your girl is doing…then have a conversation with her, but getting drunk and then dragging her all over and chastising her, berating and generally acting like a douche isn’t cool.” 

I could write a page on Madison and here’s why – the chick is crazy.  She’s just loco.  Maybe it’s me and maybe it’s the fact that she talks like a 9th grader who’s been watching Buffy reruns, I just don’t know.  I think the author is a great author, so don’t get me wrong.  I feel like she wanted every detail in this book and it showed so much that it clogged up the storyline.  I also feel that a lot of the stuff that was in here just wasn’t necessarily my cup of tea.  It didn’t flow the way that the other books did and that’s okay because some people will love this book, but for those looking for a different point of view this is it.  I had a lot of issues with the inner monologues that rambled…it went on forever and although I won’t ding this a one star, I probably won’t three star this.  Will I read another book by this author?  Yes because every author has a book come out that I might not like or they might have a book that is different than what I perceive as being “morally acceptable” however, that doesn’t mean I scratch them off my list.

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.
