Black Flagged by Emma Jaye Release Blitz

Will a Black Flag end love before it leaves the starting line? Lights Out Series. RJ Scott, Lisa Henry, Charlie Novak, H.L. Day, Emma Jaye & Beth Laycock.

Will a Black Flag end love before it leaves the starting line?

Dren is a mercenary, not a babysitter, yet protecting an F1 “bad boy” from his own recklessness is his next contract. The media darling everyone loves to hate is annoying as hell and a target both on and off the track.

Staying close is the only way to protect Karl from himself and others, but the forced proximity reveals the man behind the uncaring, flippant mask. In public and private, Karl craves attention, but it's not Dren’s job to provide it. But Dren can’t help falling for Karl’s provocative passion, and he shouldn’t because when the contract ends, he’ll return to the organization that holds his soul.

Karl avoids people he can’t trick, charm, or buy, and his new bodyguard falls into that irritating category. But before he knows it, Dren’s imposing presence becomes his seatbelt in the rocky, perilous world of F1 because there’s genuine concern and interest behind the gruff exterior.

When a fiery crash gets Karl suspended for dangerous driving, can the pair find his mysterious enemy before Karl loses his career and Dren?

This M/M romance from Emma Jaye features an arrogant F1 driver with a hidden past and a bodyguard who is in way too deep. Set in the high-octane world of Formula 1, it features fast cars, spectacular crashes, heated rivalries, and of course, a HEA.

**Each book in the Lights Out collection is a standalone story, and the books can be read in any order.**

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I am really enjoying all of these Formula 1 based M/M stories by a group of talented authors. Although each one can be read as a standalone, the stories interlink – and in this one, we finally get to read Karl's side of the story!

Karl Neumann, the bad boy of the circuit, the one most likely to cause others to hit out – in one case, whilst holding a koala which got dropped! It has been very easy in earlier books to dismiss him as the rich nephew of an owner, racing only due to his parentage and the money to make him a reasonable driver.

Well, be prepared for a completely different side to this man! As we get to learn about his family history, the threats which he hasn't even clocked, and the real way that his family come by their money... let alone how Dren, his bodyguard, was raised to behave! WOW!

I was fascinated by the insight into an Albanian brotherhood of the most horrific violence, but honour. I loved that Karl and Dren found the person who valued the other more than themselves, but in that very act understood that they too had value.

Really great way to turn it all around, and to see incidents both on and off the track from a different viewpoint. That it also provided a scorchingly hot romance was just the spray of champagne on the winning trophy!

Black Flagged is the fifth installment in the Lights Out multi-author series. Each book is made to be read as a standalone, BUT you get so much more out of them if you read them in order.

Karl Neumann is the "bad boy" of Formula 1. Fans love him and other drivers love to hate him. He's egotistical and conceited but that's what he wants everyone to believe. Throughout the rest of the books in the series, you get to see what other racers see in Karl. In Black Flagged though, you get to see a side of Karl you never expected. When he's not "on" for everyone else, he's a completely different person. I can honestly say I wasn't excited about this one since Karl just rubs me the wrong way in other books, BUT I loved seeing the other side of him. And Dren... hot damn, Dren was everything I needed and more. I was so invested in the suspense and thrill of this story. I loved getting a "darker" read involving F1.

Emma Jaye is a new author for me and if they are anything like Black Flagged, I am looking forward to going through the rest of her back log!



Author Bio

EMMA JAYE is the #1 Amazon bestselling author of angsty, dark MM paranormal, scifi, and contemporary series, including Incubus, DeMMonica, Paint, Lies, and Malthusia.

Born in Hungry Bottom (yes, it's a real place) as an unexpected twin, she was destined to be a little different!

She loves putting damaged, often sweet and funny characters through hell before letting them have a well-earned HFN or HEA.

Writing sci-fi, paranormal, and contemporary romance with m/m, m/f, and multiple partner characters, she concentrates on men who love men these days. She blames her rebellious muse (who looks like Chris from the Paint Series) for the hot aspects tickling the angst, and the humor cuddling up with the hotness.

She always answers questions and comments from readers, so feel free to get in touch.
