For those of you who haven’t heard, a lovely witty and charming lady by the name of Jenny Trout is writing a serial novel. Her pseudonym is Abigail Barnette, and Abby is a dirty girl. She’s the author of many an erotic romance, and she’s spinning a new tale called The Boss.
It started with these. Jenny Trout is incredibly smart and fucking hilarious. It’s a beautiful combination in her recaps of the ever popular 50 Shades trilogy. Basically she takes each chapter, and tells you what happens so that you don’t have to read it. She also explains why what’s good is good and what’s bad is bad every step of the way.
Of course, as much as I worship her for doing this, there are always people that oppose. And the biggest idiots are the ones that say something along the lines of “why dont u just writ ur OWN storys and stop making fun of other ppls!?@?@?!”. This is retarded because Jenny is an established author, and DOES write her own stories, she’s just expressing her opinions (that many of us share) about a piece of shit trilogy that has somehow weaseled its way into the spotlight. But alas, Miss Trout must make a point where a point must be made, so she’s decided that Abigail Barnette is going to kick the shit out of 50 Shades with her own story.
The Boss is going to be released chapter by chapter on the 15th and 30th of every month. The first chapter was supposed to debut tomorrow, but she released it early, so it’s live right now!
Sophie Scaife almost ran away once, trading her ticket to college for a ticket to Tokyo. But a delayed flight and one incredibly hot night with a stranger changed her mind, putting her firmly on track to a degree and a career at a New York fashion magazine.
Six years later, she’s shocked to find that irresistible stranger is now her boss, billionaire Neil Elwood. And Sophie can’t stop thinking about their one amazing night.
But Neil has eccentric tastes, and he wants to be sure Sophie can handle them. Sophie will have to prove she’s his match both at work and at play, and surrender to her Master’s every erotic whim.
Torn between their professional duties and their sensual desires, Sophie and Neil embark on a journey into their darkest sexual fantasies. But when Sophie gets the chance of a lifetime, will she follow her dreams, or her heart?
I’ve read the first chapter, and I’m extremely impressed. My first thought is that Abigail Barnette is an extremely eloquent writer. She keeps in simple, gets the point across, and also adds in the flavour that is going to bloom and grow into Sophie Scaife, this main character that I’m already falling in love with. She’s very down to earth, she’s realistically reacting to the situations I’ve seen her in thus far, and I’m rooting for her every step of the way.
And her first encounter with Neil. Very electric. You can taste the tension. I’m extremely excited for more of this story to unravel. I also read on Jenny Trout’s blog that the first sex scene is over 3000 words. Yes, please.

P.S. Congratulations to Emerald for finding Alice
! She’s totally fucked, she thinks that she’s stuck in her bedroom with melting walls. I think I’m going to leave her there for awhile. If you want to swing by and talk to her, she’s only communicating through blog posts, but she’s reading her comments.
