A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Following the success of L.S. Hilton's Maestra series, it appears that wicked and murderous females are back in vogue (but had they ever truly faded away?). Alvina is down on her luck in London when she receives a call from her more successful and beautiful twin sister to join her in Sicily. Soon, she is murdering people with distracted aplomb and turning her life around in unexpected ways, accumulating male conquests on the way. It's the Talented Mister Ripley with a twist and a sharp sense of humour as the amoral Alvie rises and rises on the back of all opposition. Sisters, brothers in law, local Mafia studs, sculptor lovers next door, crooked priests... nothing can stop her in her quest for the perfect life she confidently believes she is owed. The first person narrative takes you into its conniving confidence and makes you almost an accomplice to her misdeeds. Wonderful guilty fun and the beginning of a trilogy with Bad and Dangerous to Know to come next. I can't wait! ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Synopsis

Mad by Chloe Esposito

Alvina Knightly: Uncensored. Unhinged. Unforgettable. 'There's something you should know before we go any further: my heart is in the wrong place. Now don't say I didn't warn you...' Perhaps that's why nothing in Alvie's life has ever gone right? Until now. She can finally abandon her credit card debt - and her fruitless three-way relationship with Tinder and Twitter - when fate gives her the chance to steal her identical twin's perfect life. It's just a shame Beth had to die to make Alvie's dreams come true. So begin seven days of sex, violence and unapologetic selfies - one wild week that sees Alvie break every rule in the book. She never did have much respect for boundaries. It might be madness, but rules are meant to be broken. Right? Mad is the first in the sexy, shocking and compulsively readable Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know trilogy, and the beginning of a rollercoaster ride that those still alive at the end will never forget.

Pure, unadulterated entertainment. There is nothing Chloe Esposito's Alvie won't do. Strap in for a fun, fast and fresh read' -- Ali Land, author of Good Me Bad Me

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
