Something About Eve

An Eve Sumptor Novel

Eve Sumptor has it all. She’s beautiful, wealthy, successful, and sexy. But she is haunted by a past that should have destroyed her. Unable to free herself emotionally, Eve keeps her personal relationships at an arm’s length. Even if she secretly feels more than she wants to admit.

Lainey Stanton needs a change. She loves being a mother, but her marriage has become mundane. When her husband begins treating her like his mother instead of his wife, Lainey decides she needs to change. Going back to work – against her husband’s wishes – is just what she needs.

When Lainey begins working for Eve at Sumptor Gallery, an unexpected and passionate friendship develops between the two women. Just as Eve is beginning to learn how to open herself up emotionally, her past catches up to her. Now she finds herself having to save the lives of those she loves, or lose everything she has worked so hard to achieve.

This is a unique and powerful story of two completely different women who, through fate, find each other and teach each other how to love.

"I could not put this book down once I started reading it. The writing was excellent, with so many twists throughout - it really leaves you on the edge of your seat. I liked exploring the relationship of Eve and Lainey, while they both struggle to find themselves and heal wounds. Well done aspect of the book. Can't wait to see what happens next!"


"There was truly Something About Eve - a woman you'd love to hate; and hate to love! She had everything sex appeal, smarts, money - and her own empire of businesses. If you're looking to read a book packed with intriguing action, this is the one. There is a multitude of going-ons: from romance, betrayal, sabotage, fantasies, suicide to murder. I was hoping the two women would not let their emotions get the best of 'em -since they both had a lot at stake. Guess, it was bound to happen, thou. I was constantly trying to figure out who the real villains were, trying to destroy Eve and her empire. The way the author played this story up was awesome - it took a level of imagination to make it all so real."


"The writing was flawless with too many twists and turns, which will force your grey matter to work, yeah quite an intelligent novel, and highly intriguing plot, which will hook you till the last pages of the book. The chemistry between the two women is totally rocking, which will make you want more to happen between these two, making the USP of the book. The characters were strong and powerful, at times we see they are at the point of breaking down, but still they manage to recover and to stand tall, totally apt and justifies with the plot.

So I recommend you all to read this book, if you want some badass drama!"

About Jourdyn Kelly

I’ve been in Houston, Texas, writing novels and designing websites since 2009. Moving here was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, because I’ve been able to live wonderfully, and write my heart out. I’ve always enjoyed the arts in one form or another. Music sets the mood, reading stimulates my brain, and writing allows me to utilize my imagination in any way I want. I’ve been writing stories since I was a teen, and figured out writing was my passion when I finished my first novel, Something About Eve.

I love being captivated by books that lead me into different, exotic places, and through impossible scenarios. I love being able to become someone else for a time. Reading has always inspired me to bring my own characters out to play. My hope is that my writing will inspire others, or at the least, give them a way to escape from everyday life for a little while.

As web designer, etc. for singer/actress Deborah Gibson, I’ve had the opportunity to be involved in wonderful experiences, travel around the country and meet exciting people. Just recently, I was able to travel to Berlin, and meet some fantastic people. It’s experiences like this, I believe, that help me create unique, and (hopefully) lovable characters.

I will be continuing the LA Lovers series with Ellie’s book next. Each book will be a stand-alone, but look for Eve, Lainey, and Adam to show up here and there. I truly hope you enjoyed Blaise and Greyson. You’ll be able to see more of them in the next book!
