Followill Loyalty by Erica Chilson Release Blitz

Followill Loyalty. Rayna is about to learn the importance of loyalty and how it binds you into a family much tighter than blood ever could…

Life changes in less than a week…

Rayna Scott was showcased as her momma’s maid of dishonor, learned everything she thought wasn’t as it seemed, caught her boyfriend in the act during the reception, managed to graduate at the top of her class, reached the age of majority with little fanfare, and was deflowered in the most baffling of ways…

Those were just the highs.

Life as Rayna knew it ended in the most violent of lows, forcing her to swallow the stubborn pride her daddy instilled and welcome the torturous emotional side her momma tried so very hard to draw to the surface.

Falling off her high horse, Rayna figuratively breaks every bone, battered by life lesson after life lesson, learning the importance of loyalty and how it binds you into a family much tighter than blood ever could.

“He’s done!” Chad shouts at every officer in the vicinity, and there are a ton clogging up the hallway. A solid wall of uniformed officers and elected civilians. “I want him handcuffed, processed, and caged.”

Stunned stupid, the officer who brought me in sounds both hopeful yet cautious. “Sir, we need something to charge him with.”

“Gimme.” Chad turns me to face him, palms landing heavily on my shoulders. Then his fingers dive beneath the collar of my dress, plucking my new phone from my new bra. “You’re Heather’s daughter, so you use your bra as a purse, and cops don’t tend to pat breasts down when it’s a young girl. You’re also Russ’s daughter.”

Fiddling with the phone, half a dozen text message alerts ding at once. “There’s your proof. The video and audio were purposefully turned off in the interview room, but Rayna was thoughtful enough to record everything that happened from the time the first responders arrived. Goodbye.”



“We’re not on the same page. We’re not in the same paragraph or chapter. Hell, I don’t even think we’re in the same book, or series, or genre. I don’t even think we’re in the same language. Jesus Christ, Rayna. I don’t even think you’re in a book at all.”



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

For the quick and dirty first, there is no cliffhanger at the end of Followill Loyalty. Your fingers can relax. However, your tear ducts are likely to get a workout – at least mine did, several times, even when I read it a second time and knew what was coming. And they weren’t all sad tears either as I shed some tears in frustration, in anger, in empathy for Rayna’s poor self-image and the hits she kept taking, and bittersweet tears for a mother who, knowing her life was being cut short, prepared to be there for her daughter in the only way she could when she left this mortal coil behind. I also have to say, I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT!! I KNEW IT!!! I can’t say what IT was that I knew because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read book one yet, or who did and didn’t pick up on it, but I’m feeling pretty smug about it.

As for the book itself, I’m not sure how much I can actually say without giving too much away. A LOT of questions from the first book are answered, not all of them, but a lot of them, even if Rayna missed the answer or misunderstood what was being said. I adore Rayna and I empathize with her immensely when it comes to her poor self-confidence for her physical appearance and feeling like she doesn’t fit in with much of the world around her, but I am so glad I am the reader of her story because both of those characteristics severely color her interactions with those close to her, often leading her to misunderstand or misread the situation. Mind you, it doesn’t help any that Charlie is appallingly dreadful at communicating with Rayna and far too readily accepts her at her word when she says they’re on the same page. Of course, Rayna remains the queen of assuming how others feel about her, specifically assuming they harbor negative feelings toward her. But she does show the beginnings of change in that aspect during the farewell pool party with her interactions with a potential future Mrs. Followill – you’ll have to read the book to find out who the Mister is.

Some of the most significant scenes in Followill Loyalty are events I can’t discuss because of how spoiler-heavy they are. The injustices that Rayna experienced at the beginning and at the end of this book… UGH!!! I can’t even go there because my heart broke for her even as my blood boiled for her. She may have been forced to grow up too quickly with all that has happened so far, but she was wise beyond her years and capable of meeting the challenges she faced thanks to her parents. Oh yeah, Rayna’s rollercoaster ride did not slow down much during this installment and had more than its fair share of panic-inducing drops along the way. I’m buckling in extra tight for book three because I know her harrowing ride isn’t over yet. Don’t let the catharsis of the final chapter fool you, Chilson is sure to be saving the sharpest twists and turns and the biggest bumps and drops for the finale. But I’m gonna throw this out there right now, I would happily (and greedily) read more stories featuring the other residents of Followill once Rayna’s trilogy is complete because the Followills absolutely fascinate me, and I suspect there are far more secrets than Rayna can even begin to fathom. Bring on book three because I’ve got more questions than need to be answered.



Seated on a blanket next to my feet, Mindy’s son and Peri are playing like angels, while their sisters and cousins practice for a lifetime as roller derby combatants.


Author Bio

ERICA CHILSON does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.

Born, raised, and here to stay, the Wicked Writer is a stump-jumper, a ridge-runner. Hailing from North Central Pennsylvania, directly on the New York State border; she loves the changes in seasons, the humid air, all the mountainous forest, and the gloomy atmosphere.

Introverted, but not socially awkward, Erica prides herself on thinking first and filtering her speech. There are days she doesn’t speak at all. If it wasn’t for the fact that she lives with her parents, giving her a sense of reality, she would be a hermit, where the delivery man finds her months after expiration.

Reading was an escape, a way to leave a not-so pleasant reality behind. Reading lent Erica the courage she gathered from the characters between the pages to long for a different life. Writing was an instrument of change, evolving Erica into the woman she is today – a better, more mature, more at peace thinker.

Erica has a wicked mind, one she pours out into her creations. Her filter doesn’t allow all of it to erupt, much to her relief. Sarcastic, with a very dark, perverse sense of humor, Erica puts a bit of herself into every character she writes.

The girls and guys ruffle their plumage, trying with all their might to draw attention. They succeed, preening and wiping water out of their eyes. The girls make sure their tiny bikini tops are barely covering their nipples as they bob in the water. The boys elbow each other, chuckling and smirking as they edge closer. It’s like watching a disturbing episode on Animal Planet, the lions creep closer to the gazelles at the watering hole. Instead of this being an episode about stalking and killing practices, it’s more inter-species mating rituals.
