New Release and Review: MANIK by Amo Jones


‘Manik, an all-new standalone Dark Romance from Amo Jones is Available Now!



I’m Beatrice Kennedy, but everyone calls me Beat. I live a low-key life, fresh out of college and drifting from town to town until I find my home.

I love music, and how it stirs even the deepest and untouched parts of your soul. Depending on what you choose to listen to, would depend on what it touches. It’s the drug we all damper in, only different strains. My strain is Jazz. The smooth instrumental strums that take over me. The sound of cigar smoke, bourbon and an old dusty fedora hat. My strain wasn’t rap, and it sure wasn’t laced with some A-class shit like murky blue eyes casted down from the Lord and the Devil’s handcrafted smile. I knew who he was—the whole world did. One fateful night set off a chain of events, events that no one was coming back from. You can’t save people who don’t want to be saved. You can’t pull them up from the ocean when they’ve latched themselves to an anchor. Love was my anchor, destruction was the water that was drowning me, and the rope that was so tightly clamped around my ankles, was woven with the lyrics of Aeron Romanov-Reed, also known as, 'Manik. He steals hearts from all around the world, but one night, he stole something that wasn’t his to steal.

Manik is a dark, standalone, enemies-to-lovers romance that sucks you right in from the first page and keeps you entertained until the very end.  I love all of Amo Jones’ previous books and Manik does not disappoint.  It is fast paced that is guaranteed to give you a book hangover. 

Aeron “Manik” is a famous rap artist who is also a member of a Russian mafia family.  He has a dark soul, is very sexy, and is very much an alpha antihero. Beatrice “Beat” is a very strong survivor who discovers that everything she thinks she knows isn’t necessarily true. I don’t want to give anything away, but let’s just say it is interesting to watch their relationship evolve.  There are so many twists and turns and just when you think you have it all figured out, the author throws you for a big loop.  Manik and Beat together are dynamic.  Their chemistry is palpable, but there were times where I really wasn’t sure if they would and maybe even should end together given all the obstacles and revelations.

This author always does a great job with character development.  She writes about characters who are beautifully flawed and dark.  The author creates an anti-hero that you want to dislike, but you cannot help but love instead. The storyline of Manik is unique and Amo Jones’ has an amazing way of leading you through Manik and Beat’s journey.  I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.

About Amo Jones

Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand. New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.
