The next novel of psychological suspense and obsession from the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us
Seeking women ages 18–32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed.
When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money, and leave.
Question #1: Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt?
But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr. Shields may know what she’s thinking…and what she’s hiding.
Question #2: Have you ever deeply hurt someone you care about?
As Jess’s paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what in her life is real, and what is one of Dr. Shields’ manipulative experiments. Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.
Question #3: Should a punishment always fit the crime?
From the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us comes an electrifying new novel about doubt, passion, and just how much you can trust someone.
Praise for The Wife Between Us:
“A fiendishly smart cat-and-mouse thriller” ―New York Times Book Review
“[A] seamless thriller that will keep readers on their toes to the very end…Readers will enjoy the dizzying back-and-forth as they attempt to figure out just who to root for and as the suspense ratchets up to one hell of a conclusion.” ―Booklist
She’s the Sweetheart of Sweet Romance. He’s romance’s reigning sex god. When the two accidentally collide at a book conference, sparks—and their luggage—fly.
“One of the first rules of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club.” The same goes for most, if not all, motorcycle clubs.
Hattiesburg, MS: With shows like Sons of Anarchy, MC (Motorcycle Club) Romance has been a hot commodity in the entertainment world due to popular TV shows, Local Mississippi author, Scarlett Holloway took notice. Spinning her own MC Romance, Policy of Truth which releases February 22, 2019, Scarlett has one big advantage over most undertaking the genre: she actually lived the MC Life.
The result of Holloway’s experiences, being introduced to the MC world by a close family member, and her eventual creation of her own an all-female WMC, is a riveting romantic thriller that delves deep into the club world. And, with this new series, realism is the key, but it’s also touched with romance and the intrigue of mystery. She also tackles subjects which many authors refuse to broach: domestic violence, drug abuse and even suicide. The kicker? Every character in the series is a member of her own street team or friends that have helped her in some way. Holloway does not hide the fact that she was once a victim of domestic violence and wants awareness to reach women out there, that there is help for them.
When asked what her experience in the MC world, Holloway says, “It was rewarding and punishing at the same time. Always on the road having things you had to do, away from your family, tired and sore. At the same time, you are with extended family, making new friends, helping with charities.”
Knowing the ins and outs of club bylaws, and life in general, she wanted to erase popular fiction about stereotypical bikers, and give readers something fresh, and new. In the media, motorcyclists are looked at to be abusive and sexist, and oftentimes, this is perceived to be “sexy.”
The truth and attitude definitely show through in Holloway’s writing and every reader would be wise to reach out and get familiar with Holloway’s work. So, grab your favorite blanket, a cup of coffee (or wine) and kick back with her first book in the series, Policy of Truth, and let yourself get lured into the thrill of an all-female MC and the men who desire them.
Five years ago, Tamra “Durty” Simon’s life was falling apart, and she had a one-way ticket to six-feet under. And if it hadn’t been for the Death’s Angels Motorcycle Club swooping in, dusting her off, and transforming her into the badass biker she is today, she’d be taking a dirt nap. Now, she has everything she ever wanted—or so she thought.
Brett “Sting” Jackson is on a mission, and nothing is going to stop him—not even the sexy, enticing female biker who makes him hard with a single look. Too bad he’s lying and keeping secrets from her. But the alternative could get her killed, and that’s not a risk he’s willing to take.
It took Sting crashing into her life to make Durty realize there’s something else in this world she wants to ride as hard as her bike—too bad fate has other plans for them. When a rival club makes a move against the Angels, all hell breaks loose. Lives will be lost, secrets will be revealed, and lies will be exposed. Because in the motorcycle world, lies may get you hurt, but the truth can get you killed.

Growing up on the Central Coast, Scarlett Holloway always dreamed of seeing her name on the cover of a book and on the New York Times Best Seller List. What better way than to bring part of her past onto the pages of a novel, as well as writing about issues that women face on a daily basis? When she is not in her bunny hole writing, she is a massage therapist, trying to help people through therapeutic healing. Scarlett is hopelessly devoted to her husband, who she lovingly calls her plot bunny, and is active in her teenage son’s life.
VERY good! Makes you really dive in!
IF you love psychological thrillers then buy it and read it NOW. The plot was tight! It will be hard to put it down, picking it up, well that is worse! So read on my lovelies!
With different characters POV. I did see in some reviews that it was hard to keep up, but I found it flowed. Twist and turns throughout! The view I will take is that the victim, Julie, who was kidnapped/stolen, morphed herself into different personas to survive. Maybe that gives away a part of the plot. Sorry! Now when you read it please take that into account.
I applaud the author on a well done novel!

Ethan Fitzell has been avoiding his stepsister Jenny since their parents got married, but when she shows up at his apartment uninvited, he’s forced to face the fact that her absence has only made his heart grow fonder… for Ethan, his Mom has passed, that part of his character’s explanation doesn’t come until about 50% in. Not at all typical. Bravo!
Jenny was so sweet and sort of naive when she got to New York City. She can act, sing and dance. She wants to be on Broadway.
Sounds so simple right? NO There is a story running concurrently with the relationship between Ethan and Jenny, and it is how difficult breaking into theater is.
This part and all that goes with it was what really won me over. Some parts are so socially relevant now. Not too in depth, but you will be getting the message for sure.
Personally, this book had a lot to offer. The family aspect for both Ethan and Jenny was fascinating. I have to say, when some truths came out they were serious, but funny too. For example just blurting out “I read your diary” was hilarious. Then equally you have something heartbreaking, like Ethan’s teen years. It’s a series of stand-alone novels, which we all love. I am moving along right now with book 2. There are 4 more in this series and the author has 3 other series too!
**Author’s note: This is a full-length, standalone romance novel with no cliffhanger and no cheating. It is intended for a mature audience and has an ending that will leave you smiling so hard it hurts.
