ย 
Several times a week, Charlotte Jones leaves suburbia behind and boards a chartered flight to parts unknown, where she wraps her hands around the necks of marks for just as long as she has to.
ย 
Then she goes back to domestic life with a paycheck, defense wounds, and the sense that she can handle anything.
ย 
Which is good, because being a wife, mother, and sociopath, with an insatiable taste for murder, gives the term work-life balance new meaning. When one life unexpectedly bleeds into the other, leading to a secret admirer and borderline insta-fame, Charlotte is forced to ask herself if she really can have it all.
ย 
Slick and unnerving, Kill, Sleep, Repeat is a cunning tale of deception and desire that begs the question: Do we ever really know people the way we think we do?

Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat,ย andย a partridge in a pear tree.
When she’s not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.
ย 
Currently, she’s writing three series and several standalone novels.
ย 
The Bedrock Series features an unlikely heroine who should have known better. Turns out, she didnโ€™t. Thus she finds herself tangled in a messy, dangerous, forbidden love story and face-to-face with a madman hell-bent on revenge. The series has been compared to Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, and Basic Instinct.
ย 
The Water Series follows the shady love story of an unconventional married coupleโ€”heโ€™s an assassinโ€”she kills for fun. It has been compared to a crazier book version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, Dexter.
ย 
Around The Bend is a heart-pounding standalone, which traces the journey of a well-to-do suburban housewife, and her life as it unravels, thanks to the secrets she keeps. If she were the only one with things she wanted to keep hidden, then maybe it wouldnโ€™t have turned out so bad. But she wasnโ€™t.
The With You Series at its core is a deep love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. Packed with drama and adventure along with a heavy dose of suspense, it has been compared to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Love, Rosie.
The Social Affair is an intense standalone about a timeless couple who find themselves with a secret admirer they hadnโ€™t bargained for. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, the novel explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience. It is reminiscent of films such as One Hour Photo andย Playย Misty For Me.ย

ย 
Terrifying visions torment Starra. Lost moments of time and flashes of images too horrific to accept fill her with icy fear so complete she canโ€™t escape it. With too many unanswered questions, she needs answers. Now. Itโ€™s her only hope if she wants to save whatโ€™s left of her shattered mind and soul.
ย 
Unlike Starra, Mina cares nothing for her soul. Damned long ago, sheโ€™s too scarred for redemption. There are people meant to enjoyโ€ฏlivesโ€ฏof love and family and friends. Mina isnโ€™t one of these people. Her life is in the shadows, unafraid of the dark… until she realizes that something lurks in those shadows, something that wants to tear her apart.
ย 
One never knows what the darknessโ€ฏhides…

ย 
I was born and raised in a tiny town in the wilds of northern New York, a pretty, little college town called Potsdam. I grew up in a family of lawyers and teachers and bucked all the traditions. Before becoming a writer, I spent a lot of years wearing combat boots in the US Army. I spent most of my time in boots working as a Signals Intelligence Analyst (no jokes!) and a linguist. I also worked as a tech writer, an entirely different kind of writing, for Corning Glass Works. Now, Iโ€™m an Army wife and a mom to four sons. โ€ฏOver the years, our Army life has taken us all over the place and I have been lucky enough to work and live in some pretty amazing places.โ€ฏ Now we live in Hawaii, just minutes from the beach!
ย 
I am a writer thoroughly in love with words. Reading them, writing them… I love that words can take you outside of your world and let the unimaginable become imaginable. When Iโ€™m not writing or lounging on the beach, Iโ€™m probably somewhere with my nose in a book.

Ethanโ€™s cock throbbed with need at the way Lily responded to his decision. Her already flaming cheeks seemed to blush harder and her breaths were coming out in short pants. He threw her a smile as he closed the drawer and made his way back to the bed clutching his choice of implements. As his shins hit the side of the covers, he tossed them down, just a few inches from Lilyโ€™s head.
She lifted her gaze, eyeing all three with obvious suspicion.
โ€œSo, my naughty wife prefers the paddle, does she?โ€ he asked, for some reason still talking about Lily in the third person even though she was right there on her knees in front of him. There was just something about the deed, somehow it seemed to objectify Lily furtherโ€”an objective they both wanted him to achieve.
โ€œDoes that mean I should use it first or last?โ€
Lilyโ€™s wide eyes met his gaze. โ€œSir?โ€
He didnโ€™t have to look into her thoughts to see the panic swelling in her now, Lilyโ€™s body language was giving it away effortlessly and his erection grew as a direct result. After all this time, that flicker of fear in Lilyโ€™s gaze still made him hard. But then Ethan guessed some things would never change.
โ€œNever mind,โ€ he told her with a smile. โ€œI have decided to be kind and save the best until last for you.โ€
She gasped, probably uncertain if that was a kindness or not, but wisely, Lily said nothing. Ethan reached forward, selecting the thin cane from just beyond her nose and holding it up for inspection. It had been a very long time since heโ€™d last caned Lily, but based on the huffing and puffing that was coming from her, she hadnโ€™t forgotten its keen bite.
โ€œOh God!โ€
The words left her lips in a rushed breath and Ethan knew how much effort it was taking for Lily to remain in position for him. Every instinct in her body was telling her to get up and run for the door.
โ€œBut youโ€™re not going to run, are you, Lily?โ€
She pressed her palms down in front of her, as though she needed to ground herself. โ€œNo, sir,โ€ she promised. โ€œBut please. I hate that thing.โ€
Ethan lowered the cane and moved toward her. โ€œHate is a strong word, little one,โ€ he replied in a soft voice. โ€œYou may not like it, but do you deserve it?โ€
Lily screwed her face up. โ€œMaybe, sir, butโ€”โ€
He lifted the cane above her prone arse as her protest began, bringing it down swiftly across both helpless cheeks and ending her sentence.
She leapt from the bed at the impact, yelling out into the covers as she buried her face in them.
โ€œThere will be no excuses, Lily.โ€ Ethanโ€™s voice was little more than a growl as he tilted his head to assess the mark the implement had made against her pale skin. โ€œYou will kneel there and take your punishment like a good girl. Got it?โ€
Lily lifted her head, blinking away tears as she answered. โ€œYes, sir. Iโ€™ve got it.โ€
Ethan nodded. โ€œGood. Six strokes of the cane then?โ€ย 
He presented it as a question, though he didnโ€™t know why. Lilyโ€™s fate was already sealed.
โ€œSix more, sir?โ€ she whined.
โ€œAbsolutely, six more,โ€ he repeated. โ€œThat first one was just a warning about what happens when we donโ€™t accept our punishment.โ€
She pressed her face back into the covers at that and Ethan smiled. It was such an ironic sentiment coming from a man like himโ€”a man who had successfully dodged his punishment for decades. Inching forward he raised the cane over her vulnerable backside.
โ€œYouโ€™re going to thank me for each strike, Mrs. Reilly,โ€ he told her. โ€œAnd then, once weโ€™re finished with the cane, you can tell me what youโ€™re being punished for.โ€
Lily sniffed, twisting her head at the news. โ€œYes, sir,โ€ she mewled.
Ethan swatted her with the cane again, and this time he did it with real force. He watched with satisfaction as Lilyโ€™s fingers clawed at their bedding, but somehow, she swallowed down the pain. Ethan smiled. He was almost proud of her.
She lifted her head. โ€œThank you, sir,โ€ she managed, although Ethan could tell it was killing her to have to say the words.
โ€œYouโ€™re welcome,โ€ he replied happily. โ€œThat was one.โ€
He landed the next strike a little lower than the first and this time she squealed.
Damn it, Ethan! That hurts so much!
โ€œGood,โ€ he told her sternly. โ€œI want it to bloody hurt, Lily. I want you to remember why it hurts every time you try and sit down.โ€
She inhaled at that, the defiance radiating from her body. โ€œThank you, sir.โ€
That was said between gritted teeth, but still, she had said it. Thatโ€™s what counted. Ethan could work on getting her to mean it as they went.
โ€œThatโ€™s two, Lily. Brace yourself.โ€
Lilyโ€™s cheeks tensed at his command and Ethan wanted to chuckle.ย 
โ€œNot like that,โ€ he chided, tapping her cheeks with the end of the cane. โ€œRelax those cheeks and just be ready.โ€
She panted again, and in Lilyโ€™s thoughts Ethan caught a myriad of complaints, but he ignored them, instead lining up his next shot. He aimed for the place her thighs met by delicious arse, and this time Lily jumped clear from the bed at the hurt.
โ€œOw, ow, ow!โ€ she yelped, reaching around to claw at the punished area.
โ€œGet those hands away,โ€ he barked. โ€œYou know better than that, Lily!โ€
He ensured he locked gazes with her and Lily bit her lip in shame as she withdrew her palms. โ€œIโ€™m sorry, sir,โ€ she whimpered. โ€œBut itโ€™s too much.โ€
No, itโ€™s not, his thoughts told her. Itโ€™s not even close to being too much, sweetheart.
Watery eyes blinked at him.
Accept your fate or I will be harder on you.
It took a moment, but Ethan saw the moment she ceded the point. Her shoulders slumped, her head falling forward again.
โ€œBetter,โ€ he praised. โ€œNow, thank me and then you can tell me how many strikes you have left.โ€
Lily shifted her head miserably. โ€œThank you, sir,โ€ she mumbled. โ€œThere are three to go.โ€
Though God knows how Iโ€™ll get through them.
โ€œYouโ€™ll get through them,โ€ Ethan said with a smile. โ€œYouโ€™ll get through all of it, and do you know why, little girl?โ€
Lilyโ€™s gaze had the temerity to narrow at that. โ€œBecause I deserve it, sir.โ€

 

โ€œRight,โ€ he replied. โ€œNow spread those legs and get ready. The last three are coming hard and fast.โ€

Title: In Her Words
Author: J.S Ellis
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: May 7, 2019



โ€œEdge of your seat read!โ€ – Amazon Review

โ€œIn Her Words is a thriller that will capture a readerโ€™s curiosity until the very last page.โ€ – Crazies R Us Book Blog

โ€œThis was excellent. An engaging and intense read I read straight through. I held my breath a few times. Twisted and heart breaking. Fabulous debut!โ€ – Novels and Latte Review






While she seems to have it all, Sophie Knight is looking for more. When gorgeous and carefree Michael Frisk walks into her life, he offers the excitement and passion she desires.

Sophie is willing to risk everything she has. After all, she is used to concealing things from her husbandโ€”like her alcoholism, her unhappiness. But soon she has more to hide. She wakes up one morning in an alcoholic haze and finds bruises on her body, but has no recollection of what happened to her. Was she raped?

When unsettling notes and mysterious phone calls start, Sophie wonders whom she should turn to. Is Michael the cause of the frightening things happening in her life, or is he the answer to her problems? 






While preparing the evening meal, I slammed pots and pans, and slipping into a terrified murmured, 

Couldnโ€™t I be? There is the address of another man in the bin! Shall I remove it? Itโ€™s unlikely Richard will go through the rubbish.

Iโ€™ve done nothing wrong. I admit, I find Michael positively beautiful, and Iโ€™ve flirted a bit, but Iโ€™m sure he gets it a lot from both women and men. Heโ€™s a talented musician. Itโ€™s his job to create a certain allure, but luring me into seeing him in his apartment? The danger of being with him in a room alone! How suffocating the whole experience would be. I have a fairy tale image in my head of the goblin leading the princess to his lair. 

I stopped cooking and caught my reflection in the living room window, surprised how flushed I appeared. The streets were empty except a few people walking by. Does Richard have plans tomorrow? He told me something, but I canโ€™t remember. Everything he says is a blur. Iโ€™m sure he has to go golfing. Michael has conquered my eyes. Why have I allowed him into my imagination? I have a healthy marriage, not ideal or a perfect one, but I accept it for what it is. I get lonely, but Iโ€™m not alone. I have Richard. I get bored too sometimes because of the routine, but thatโ€™s marriage. I never thought of it as a sport. If I did, I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago. 

Did Michael sense something, or give him the impression Iโ€™m trapped in an unhappy marriage? Even so, the logical thing to do is not get involved with another man’s wife. I took vows that Michael is breaking. I canโ€™t say Iโ€™m a fabulous wife, or Richard is a fantastic husband, but weโ€™ve managed all these years. Heโ€™s older than I am, and uses his authority and superiority which makes me feel inferior to him, but I donโ€™t dwell on the petty stuff. Iโ€™ve learned to ignore him. 

I inspected my wedding ring, which Iโ€™ve never removed since Richard slipped it on my finger. My life commitment, forever. But forever is such a long time. How did I get myself into this mess?

While she seems to have it all, Sophie Knight is looking for more. When gorgeous and carefree Michael Frisk walks into her life, he offers the excitement and passion she desires.
ย 
Sophie is willing to risk everything she has. After all, she is used to concealing things from her husbandโ€”like her alcoholism, her unhappiness. But soon she has more to hide. She wakes up one morning in an alcoholic haze and finds bruises on her body, but has no recollection of what happened to her. Was she raped?
ย 
When unsettling notes and mysterious phone calls start, Sophie wonders whom she should turn to. Is Michael the cause of the frightening things happening in her life, or is he the answer to her problems?ย 

I took a long bath with Maria Callas playing in the background, emptying my mind. I put on a black long-sleeved skater dress, but as I inspected myself in the mirror, it seemed too provocative. I didnโ€™t want to send the wrong message, so I changed into a different dress that wasnโ€™t so short. I applied too much makeup which made me look like a tart, so I removed it and started again. My hands trembled as I drew on my eyeliner. I drank a glass of wine and took several drags of my cig to steady my nerves.


ย I went outside and hailed a taxi. I must have been out of my mind. The cabbie kept looking at me through the rear view mirror. I bet he knew what I was up to, or maybe not. I probably looked like a corporate woman heading for a meeting with a client.


ย ย I almost told the cabbie to turn around, but when I opened my mouth, nothing came out. Mama by Phil Collins was playing on the radio. Here I was on my way to meet a kid, who had seen me at my worst, if not at my most degrading. It wasnโ€™t too late to change my mind. However, I didnโ€™t change my mind when I paid and tipped the cabbie. I didnโ€™t change my mind when I scanned the block of flats and rang the bell. I didnโ€™t change my mind as I plodded along the corridor adjusting the hem of my dress.


When I arrived, Michael was leaning against the doorframe, waiting for me looking flawless in black, with long earrings dangling from his ears. I like how well dressed he is, unlike those boys who wear jeans under their buttocks – they make me want to pull them up for them. He led the way. It was too late to change my mind now.
ย 
He shut the door. I smiled, and he smiled back. With the back of my hand, I ran it across his cheek feeling the softness of his skin. A sexual wave built in my groin, I moved close enough that my lips almost brush against his. I was intoxicated by his beauty, his talent, his strangeness. It was so forbidden and sexy.
