Sunday's Author Spotlight: Jade Eby


Today I’m super excited to have Author Jade Eby on the Sunday’s Author Spotlight. Jade is the author of the Back to Bad series, the Finish series and several other books. Jade also wrote the Cupid series together with author Kenya Wright.

Jade Eby writes contemporary romance novels and although I haven’t read any of her books before I’m really adding them on my To-Read shelf because they sound great. 

About 'The Right Kind Of Wrong':


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22494137-the-right-kind-of-wrong
Nothing stays hidden forever.

Kara Pierce has held onto the same dream since she was a little girl: to be the next Katie Couric.

Vince Gage, a budding filmmaker whose I-don't-give-a-shit attitude cancels out his charm, almost ruined it for her once, and now he’s back, threatening to do it again.

When the two of them are paired together for a college competition with a $20,000 prize, the only thing they agree on is winning.

They return to Iowa where Kara grew up to research her grandfather's service in World War II, instead they find themselves in the middle of a family scandal kept quiet for far too long.

As Kara and Vince investigate the scandal deeper, they realize the price of uncovering the truth is so much more than they bargained for.

Praise for Jade Eby's books:


The Finish is a difficult, unsettling and ‘real’ story and one we’d definitely recommend picking up for those readers who love being pushed outside their comfort zone just beware of the obvious triggers.
- Totally Booked Blog, about ‘The Finish’

This book and Jade’s writing literally blew me away. It was so beautifully done and it just made me feel.
- Three Girls and a Book Obsession, about ‘The Finish’

Dirty Proof takes you on one heck of a roller-coaster ride of emotions. It brought out emotions in me that I didn't even know existed.

About the Author:


Once upon a time there was a little girl who fell in love with books then she grew up to write her own.

Jade has participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) seven times and enjoys copious amounts of coffee. When she's not writing, she enjoys trashy reality T.V. and reading everything she can get her hands on.

Mommy to two dogs and two naughty kitties, she feels like she might be on her way to having a zoo. You can find her on almost every social networking site that aids in her procrastination.
