Here is the deal: Suanne Laqueur send us (people who signed up for her newsletter) a mail titled: Heads Up! Breaks Up! Tits Up! (If I didn’t love her already with that tagline I would 😀 ) where she explained that she’ll have a sale and if we were interested, we could share it but, hey, no pressure. They will be 2,99 USD till 01/11.
Of course woman I will share!!!! Are you kidding me????
And I know that I probably should use the media kit she sent us with a variety of choice but I’ll go for another road and will share some excerpt of my reviews to convince you to : JUST BUY THESE BOOKS!
Because you’ll never have read anything like these.
Sorry Suanne, this was a looong introduction and so not “buy links first and blablabla after” but well, you know me! All chatty, overenthusiastic and bossy.

Adult content, for readers 18+
Book 1 of the Venery series, but can be read as a standalone
Grand Prize winner in the 2017 Writer’s Digest Book Awards.
Some now what I wrote about it:
Suanne Laqueur penmanship is extraordinary. She gives all these little details (the shape of a button, the color of Val’s creations, the smells and tastes…) helping the reader to really SEE the story. She made me live inside her characters head. I was their friend, their lover and I HURT with them.
She is able to give all the nuances and intricacies of human relationships. She proves nothing is black or white, even topics you’re certain are wrong or taboo. She is shaking your beliefs, moving you out of your comfort zone not with brute force but with feather touches here and there. Who would have guessed I would have rooted for a male escort. Found his profession perfectly “honorable”? Would have been nearly ready to support this attraction? Me the “straight laced” girl?

And some of what I wrote:
This book was like being hit by an enormous emotional wave!
The story began on a huge “bang!” and I was panting, heart galloping like a wild horse inside my rib cage. I was having a panic attack. I WAS Geronimo and I wanted someone anyone to come save me. It was the worse betrayal you could ever imagine. One hitting you in the flesh. Earth shattering aftermaths.
That’s how talented Suanne is: immediately sucking you in her story barely releasing you from her clutches from time to time just to let you breathe a little and give you a false security feeling before the next blow.
Seriously this book should come with a warning. Suanne tells a terrible and powerful story. One where you’ll call for your mom to come rescue you because the fox is in the den and you’re the panicked little chick.
I love her and I sometimes hate her equally as she loves destroying her heroes before rebuilding them. They are real Phoenixes reborn from their ashes and throughout this long, painful but glorious process we suffer right alongside them. It’s raw, flesh against flesh will against will, it’s messy, painful and cathartic. It’s life in all its glory.
You end up shaken, overwhelmed, emotional with a gigantic book hangover because it was so exceptional that you want more. Always more.
So read at your own risk!
All complaints have to be sent to Suanne Laqueur author extraordinaire and living in sunny California.
Now there is a third book in the venery series, not on sale but also excellent: A Scarcity of Condors where I said that : “
Suanne Laqueur has once again demonstrated that she is a force to be reckoned. A powerful writer able to embark you on the cathartic journey of her characters. She will make you suffer. She will sometimes make you blush and cringe. She will open your eyes. She will make you cry. But she also will make you rich with human knowledge.”
So, what are you waiting for now???
