Today we have the blog tour for Jamie Magee’s Disengaged. Check out this new dark contemporary romance and grab your copy today.
Dark Romance Novel, sensitive topics with religious undertones (hope in the face of hell).
Finding herself stranded in a new city, eighteen-year-old Ember Bloom thought she’d reached her all time low. She was wrong. A mindless walk to a dead-end job landed her in the path of her gambling fathers’ enemies. Her only defense was a stranger, Slayton Winslow, a known enforcer and fighter—rumored to be Odin’s prince, underground royalty.
On sight, Slayton stole her breath and rushed her heart. His enigmatic attraction to her and how stoically he shielded her only churned Ember’s attraction to the bad boy who had given her safe haven in a real life hell. The draw to him gave her a reason to fight, to awaken. She knew every second could be their last in the city seeded with treacherous deceit and life threatening power plays.
This is NOT an easy book to read, and I am not saying this lightly. It is hard, it is dark and it is gritty, definitely not for those who are sensitive to certain topics.
Ember Bloom is a teenager, a teenager who doesn’t really have the best life around. She has lost the only person she cared about and now living with her father, a man she only loves because she has to, has not been a fun ride.
One mindless walk late one evening (after repeated orders from her father not to go out alone, for he has enemies), the prophecy was fulfilled. For she encounters Slayton Winslow aka “Slayer”, a bad boy extraordinaire, and an ex-underground fighter, sent into take Ember to collect on the debts her father owed. Their first encounter leaving us with a whole lot of questions and not a lot of answers!
But what followed was love and it’s consequences that they had to face.
“Everyone wants a bad boy until they realize they aren’t really bad- some unattainable alpha- but just a boy with layer and layers of hell that have to be dealt with.”
Right off the bat, there is insta-love happening in this book – in fact, majority of the plot happens so fast that it just might give you a whiplash, but the better part is that this doesn’t prescribe to the whole “love is the solution for everything” – which is exactly what a dark romance should have! But the plot definitely takes a turn when we get Slayton’s POV – which I do believe should have been more than just 2 chapters – and there is a whole lot of monologue in Emme’s POV that just about became repetitive and that’s exactly when Slayton’s POV came to the
To be fair, this isn’t the darkest I have gone, but I liked the way author went with the plot. She didn’t mince words or even experiences – they were brutal, they were in you face and they were definitely felt by me as reader. Every single thing that happened to H&H was written in a way that gives you an insight into their circumstances, not as a third person but as themselves!
This one was my first book from this author, but I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more! ❤

Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.
