4 Fang Review: The Replacement by Rachel Wade
Posted by brriske
A gritty New Adult drama about a young woman’s self-destructive quest to find purpose, self-worth, and love in a broken world.
My name is Elise Duchamp. I’m twenty-three years old and I’m known as the town whore.
No, not the kind who exchanges sexual favors for money. The other kind. The kind who gives it all away for free, whenever and however she likes. I am that girl. The one everyone whispers about and the one none of the girls seem to like, because all of their boyfriends either want to sleep with me or already have. Promiscuity is my thing—the kind that slowly, violently turns my insides black, but gives me something I need.
All things considered, I’m not completely reckless. I’m safe, and contrary to popular opinion, I do have a heart. I live in a world of careless choices, and with those choices come careless people. I cannot judge them, because I am one of them. I too bow down to the altar of the self-serving. I am not a good friend. I am not and never could be anyone’s girlfriend. I’m convinced any goodness in me shriveled up and died long ago.
But I am a replacement. That is something I know how to be, and this is a story of the lengths I’d go to in order to keep it that way.

I give this Book 4 fangs
Good Read. This book is about a woman named Elise with a bad reputation due to sleeping with just about any man and a few sex scenes in the very beginning of this book prove it. Then a man named Ryder comes into her life who turns her world upside down. This book kept me reading because just when you think everything is going to be great there is a twist. The woman has severe parental and family issues that cause self worth issues that are always there and make her hesitant around getting close to anyone. I recommend this book to people who like to read books with a lot of emotional turmoil, personal image issues, parental issues, and sex scenes. Review by Beth Kennedy (Independent Reviewer)
