Cover Reveal: The Replacement by Rachael Wade

We've got a cover reveal for yall today and damn it sounds interesting to me. I'm loving the cover too. It's sexy and has some grit to it. From the blurb it sounds like it's pretty fitting too! If you've read Rachael before in her own words this is "a dark, gritty drama" that's completely different from anything she's written before and isn't a romance. 

Alright kittens. So what do you think? Sexy? A little too much? 

Does it sound like one you'd give a read?


Title: The Replacement, A Novel
Expected Publication: 2013
Cover Design: Robin Ludwig Design

A gritty, coming-of-age drama about a young woman’s self-destructive quest to find purpose, self-worth, and love in a broken world.

My name is Elise Duchamp. I’m 23 years old and I’m known as the town whore.

No, not the kind who exchanges sexual favors for money. The other kind. The kind who gives it all away for free, whenever and however she likes. I am that girl. The one everyone whispers about and the one none of the girls seem to like, because all of their boyfriends either want to sleep with me or already have. Promiscuity is my thing—the kind that slowly, violently turns my insides black, but gives me something I need.

All things considered, I’m not completely reckless. I’m safe, and contrary to popular opinion, I haven’t chucked my entire moral code out the window. Just most of it. I live in a world of careless choices, and with those choices come careless people. I cannot judge them, because I am one of them. I too bow down to the altar of the self-serving. I am not a good friend. I am not and never could be anyone’s girlfriend. I’m convinced any goodness in me shriveled up and died long ago.

But I 
am a replacement. That is something I know how to be, and this is a story of the lengths I’d go to in order to keep it that way.

  2. Don't usually read this kind of book but; it does sound intriguing so I would give it a try. It is a great book cover. Really stands out.

    1. I don't usually either Sue. Rachael has a contemporary series that I just picked up that looks great and right up my normal ally. I'm really caught by this one too though and going to give it a read when it comes out. It sounds pretty interesting. And yeah I love that cover too. You're right it stands out in the crowd!

      Thanks for dropping in!

  3. I think I will wait on this one until you give us a review. Great cover.

    1. LOL I'll definitely let yall know after I've read it :)

  4. The other day I was looking at books on Amazon and felt like I was reading the same description over & over. Bossy dominating billionaire hero meets shy virginal heroine. Well, THE REPLACEMENT is definitely a description I've never seen before. I wonder....... is it a romance? And is it just one book?

    1. LOL, right? When I saw the description I had one of those whoa now that's different! reactions.

      I don't know about it being a book or a series but she said it's not a romance book. I'm going to read it once it comes out and will let yall know :)
