Product description

Product Description


‘So, they want me to write a book? They want to know about my band, my life, my loves and my losses. But they have no idea what they’re asking for. If I give them what they want, they’ll get so much more than the sex and drugs and the rock and roll they’re expecting. They’ll get the secrets that I’ve kept for so long, they’ll get an insight into the person I really am, or at least was. They think they know my story, they know nothing.
If I do this, if I write honestly and give them the ugly truth, people will get hurt. People that I love, people that have already suffered in the worst possible ways.
Do I do this, or do I walk away? Taking my secrets to the grave.’
Marley is an adult contemporary romance. It contains content suitable only for grownups with an open mind. There are scenes of group sex which include m/f/m a little bit of f/m/m and even some f/f/f/m/m/f/f/f. There is drinking and drug taking involved. A lot of swearing, some Essex slang and some very high emotion. Please don’t complain after reading this book that you wasn’t warned.
And yes, of course you’ll need tissues.

This is the best book of the series - we finally get some new stuff! The beginning half was just a repetition of the last two books with no new revelations, but the second half we get to know Marley and Ash and get some new stuff about Sean. I actually quite enjoyed this book and I even shed a little tear at Maca's death, which I might add, I was ecstatic I finally got some insight into. Book one could have been so good if it was addressed then.

WOW what can I say, this is the hardest review I have ever had to write. The emotion and feelings run so deep and to put this book into a review is almost impossible to do it justice.
Can I just say that Carnage books 1 and 2 MUST be read before this book.
This is is the story of the four missing years told from Marley Layton's point of view. The sex, the drugs, the music, the heartache and what exactly happened in that hotel room in Paris between himself Sean and Whorley. The Sean and Georgia years told from his point of view and what Sean was going through when he and Georgia were separated.
Be warned, this book WILL blow your mind, rip your heart out, stomp all over it and then maybe put some of it back together again. I absolutely loved seeing the vulnerable side of Marley and Sean, their emotions and their feelings pour out, and Marley has captured it all in a tell all book he has written, but as yet not decided if he wants to publish, as he knows some of the contents of the book will cause lots of hurt feelings for Georgia and his family. You see a different side to Marley than in Carnage 1 and 2, the softer side, the funnier Marley, the loving Marley. The interactions between himself and Ashley are priceless and some of the one liners are hilarious and soo soo touching. You just want to put you arms around him and give him a big hug.
I didn't think it was possible to love Sean and Marley more than I already did, but I was so very wrong.
I have loved Lesley Jones since the first time I read the Carnage story. She is a fantastic writer and I am in total awe of her and even more so after this awesome story. If I could give this book 100 stars it would not be enough.
Lesley thank you for giving the world this beautiful, heartbreaking and wonderful story and I love ya guts lady.
A must read not to be missed !!!!!!!!!!!

A Carnage Novel
Lesley Jones

Get ready to collect the peaces of your heart after reading Marley. The carnage that he leaves behind will mark you forever.

Marley had the chance to tell his side of the story that has the potential to destroy Maca's memory and his beloved sister George will be heartbroken to beyond repair.

Marley has been carrying so much pain and guilt for so long but is he ready to shine all those secrets to the world and hurt the people he most love?

As always didn't expected anything less from this story. Knowing is a novel from the Carnage series you know tears, sex, drugs and rock a roll will be present. We expect to have one unbelievable experience just like Carnage 1 & 2 and as always it delivered every single expectation.

You don't want to miss this amazing and incredible series I guarantee it. We recommend for you to read Carnage Book 1 & 2 prior to Marley.

***As always be aware there are adult situations with sex, drugs and foul language please we advice this book to be read by 18 years or older. Readers Discretion Advised.

Gifted by author in exchange for an honest review.

Marley is a companion book to the First book in the series, Carnage. Carnage was aptly named as it was Carnage on my heart, and although I knew what to expect with Marley, I have still needed to wait a few days before posting this review as emotions are delicate things.

Marley tells the story of Carnage from his point of view, as well as reveling the story of Marley and Ashley. This book is a must read for Carnage fans.
I know that some people will say that these books are just make believe stories, but the way they are written and the story that is told by Lesley Jones is one that will never be blurred with other novels that I read. It is hard to write a review without spoilers, but please DON'T be put off reading this series because you are worried about doom and gloom. I can't reiterate enough that this book is so much more than a "tear jerker" or "ugly cry" series.

Lesley Jones is a gifted storyteller and I look forward to following her journey as an author.

Holy Jesus. My freakin’ world has been ROCKED by Marley! And I enjoyed....





Lesley! Just. Wow. I knew, I just KNEW that this book was going to take me on an incredible journey, but what I didn’t know is that it would LITERALLY leave me speechless long after I finished it. How does one write a review that is even going to do this masterpiece justice? I’m going to give it a try.....

What did I know going in? Questions would be answered. Secrets would be revealed. Hearts would break. Lives would be forever altered and changed. Hell. My damn life wasn’t going to be the same after reading this story. I knew that much. That’s the power and utter genius that is Lesley Jones! She has the brilliant capability of evoking such raw emotion through her words that you feel you are experiencing everything the characters endure.

This story was was everything I thought it was going to be and MORE. SO. SO. MUCH MORE! I loved Marley in Carnage One and Two...but this? This book? God oh God. Did I cry? Oh, yes. Hard. We know the scenes from reading Carnage, but what I didn’t know was the story of Marley and Ash. This is when I fell utterly and COMPLETELY head over heels IN LOVE with him! SO. DAMN. HARD. Of course he is flawed, who isn’t? Who doesn’t make mistakes? He was so young when he started on his journey as a rock star! What I quickly learned was that Marley is truly a beautiful, emotional soul and a genuine man. He loves with his whole heart, his family is his life. To me, he is everything. The story of Ash and Marley had me tearing up so many times. I laughed out loud dozens of times. Too many to even count! These two just stole my heart.
