A mafia princess. The nation’s favorite football player. Can they make it work?

An unlikely matching of the stars.
The opposites had it all for one year.

Justice Bexley, the daughter of Cain and Calla leaders of The Diamond Syndicate, sacrificed true love to protect Liam. Her selfish action destroyed them both.
Liam Blake moved on with his prestigious career. However, his outlook on life was never the same. If his parents could fight for true love with a Pinky Promise he can keep moving forward. At least he tried convincing himself of that.

Some say true love has a way of finding its way back. Justice and Liam know better to believe. That’s up until the day they find themselves in a heated meeting.

She owns a new football team.
He’s coming back from an injury and thirsty to prove the nation wrong.
Years of pent up anger and hatred may fuel an epic second chance love story or ruin both of them for good.

[Release Blitz & Book Reviews] 🎥The Director 🎬by Lily White



The Director Cover social media size   

  Everybody wants to be an actress, right? The lights, the camera, the action? The fame, the money, the beauty and esteem. It’s all part of the package. Unless, of course, you’re part of HIS films. Ethan Cole was one of the best directors in the business until the day he disappeared. He was charismatic, gorgeous, intriguing and so brilliant that no other person could compare. People believed he’d simply quit. In truth, he’d gone underground. I found him after being stolen from the streets. I was thrown into his new world, his fantasies, his decadent chaos, and I found myself fighting just to stay alive. He seduced me while tormenting me. Made me a star while keeping me hidden from the public’s eye. He asked me one simple question before shoving me in front of the glittering lights and dark lens of his camera. One question, requiring only one response: Fuck or Die?

I should have known better. I solely based what I thought this book would be about by the title alone. Cute Actress want to be moving to California to pursue her dreams of becoming the most sought-after actress…who falls madly in love with the first Director she meets… Buhahaha!!!! This is Lily White people….

Right out of the starting gate, this story had me hooked. Started and finished in one day due to the intensity of this story. My nails are chewed down to the quicks, my hair has been twirled constantly, I’ve done nothing but junk it food wise today… All because of this book!!! 
It’s one that will test your limits in the dark scene… Will have to admit to constantly chain smoking while reading this book! Because of the stress level that not only Emma goes through but what Laura went through reading this. 

Poor Emma just wanted to make it home after a date turned upside down. Walking to find a place to hail a taxi, she finds herself being tossed in the back of a van. 
Now at her final destination, acting is now her calling. However, these are not the movies you see on the Hallmark channel! 

Ethan is the director of these movies…he has finally taken the step to more freedom in his abilities to direct. A more beautiful way to show the ‘art’. He runs a tight ship, that’s for sure. 

Emma is quick to realize though that...
Ethan is like a sour onion with many layers that only made you cry harder the closer you go to his core. 
Along with being like a sour onion…
Monsters shouldn’t be good looking. They’re supposed to be big, lumbering men with scarred skin and receding hairlines. 
Without giving more away, put dinner in the crockpot, grab you a pot of coffee and dive in to this one!!! You will be so glad that you are at home reading this and not auditioning for a part in Ethan Cole’s next movie!!!

The book is super dark , so much so that Lily has decided to only publish through smashwords & website and not through Amazon. Well that's as explicit a warning as they come. Don't want no uptight , self appointed guardian of the modalities read it, then go around shaming it.
The content is no holds barred, no prisoners taken , even by LilyMeter! I had to stop at several places to just take a deep breath, Then continue on, cause book keeps you guessing what's next, where's the hope in this dismal, hopelessness ? A slap to the face warning about the monsters lurking around us in broad daylight. We warn our kids about it , we watch over our shoulders , we don't venture after dark in questionable neighbourhoods, lest we get taken. And that's exactly what happens to Emma. 
She gets abducted in a seedy part of Boston and thrown into a dark van. Immediately her ordeal starts. Bound, tied, gagged.......and Raped ! . Then stuffed in a container, shipped overseas. Landing in the hovels of the Earth , she's in a maze of horror chambers , treated like fodder & prey , to be devoured by predators. 

"The world was a cruel place full of monsters, and if you weren't constantly on guard, eventually one would sneak up from behind to drag you into the shadows"

I'd read about the subject as it happened in South Africa once, saw some movies about it, but reading a book ,is my first. It happens for real, in Our World, In modern day, Right under our noses. 
Emma meets the Director. He's a maker of horror films, lost to the real world, hiding in these dungeons, trying to create his kind of art , that pushes boundaries and is very realistic in the emotions. There's a market for it in rich depraved society and shadowed hallways of dark web. Everything is illegal and immoral, but does that stop it - NO ! 

I'd offered new stories, new visions, new ways of looking at the world around us,How would you like to direct whatever you want? The actual occurrence of true horror and helplessness that can't be found in the films you so tirelessly vomit out? 

Emma is projected as a victim but soon shows her steely spine. Not to be easily subdued , her sass trumps her brain sometimes. She's forever curious, questioning and a survivalist. Keen observer and her meek persona hides a true warrior within. Ironically THIS warrior is very early noticed by Ethan Cole, The Director, who thoroughly goes about exploiting that vein in her and capturing it on film. 

Ethan Cole - The Director is suave, polished and a Devil with piercing Light eyes that observe EVERYTHING ! Nothing escapes his attention ! Every minute detail on the set and off it is carefully logged and recorded for future usage. 

"Monsters shouldn't be good looking. They're supposed to be big, lumbering men with scarred skin and receding hairlines. Their teeth should be absent , or they should have eyes that are dead instead of sparkling. They should have big rounded guts and meaty hands that bruise and maim when they touch you. But they shouldn't look like Ethan.
Meticulous. Businesslike. Lacking warmth, emotion, remorse or regret. His desire to produce this film - his need to create his art - was the only driving factor for Ethan Cole.
I would learn quickly after meeting this well dressed man, that no matter how bad your circumstance, it could always deteriorate, that Hell itself could rise up and swallow you when you'd convinced yourself you'd experienced it all. "

He's a handsome Devil with pure ice running in his veins and a stone mask for a face that gives nothing, shares nothing.
Their relationship is of The Director & Actress . very hands off, professional and work related only. So when do emotions seep in through the cracks ? 
How do they deal with it?
How will their relationship survive when they are on a treadmill of death?

"I've just given myself to you. That's what I've done. It's up to you now to decide what to do with it."
"I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, Emma, but you just sold your soul to the devil." 

One thing that I observed , during this process. When you read in pages, chapters, the story has nothing but heinous INTENT on the directors part. He's merely there to make the product and deliver it, absolving himself of all responsibility of blood on his hands !! But something somewhere must be sticking to his soul , so filthy and caustic, that to wash it off , he deviates from his established norm of letting the girls be eaten alive. He let's Emma employ a weapon . 
Now why would he do that ?
There's a possibility that he's attaching subconsciously to Emma
His own ego pushes him to prove over and over again , that he can top himself !!! 
Seriously I'm having an epiphany here 💡 I had to finish the book and step back to see the story in its entirety, to understand the concept.
Why doesn't he let her escape, because, in my opinion, his ego as the BEST DIRECTOR , refuses to stop before he completes his perfection of a movie made with his Offcuts !! So technically he's the Hero AND the villain, BOTH ! 
I dunno if Lily intended that way, but I had to go and read the last chapter THREE TIMES to get into her headspace ! She is his MUSE, and in a role reversal, The Director not only gets inspired by her , he almost ends himself in order to live up to the pure standards of his MUSE ! 
Emma is triumphant purely on the Ferocity Of The Spirit , even when trapped in Clutches of death , that she involuntarily forces The Director to finish his project, putting both their lives in danger 
Know what I'm saying !!! 
Mindfuckery of the highest order , only could be grown in the overly fertile mind of Lily. How she's remained sane for so long is a million dollar question.
But then sanity is subjective !I'd say tread carefully in these illusive corridors of The Set. NOTHING is what it seems, NOTHING is real and The Director controls EVERYTHING. 
He's the Ultimate Puppet Master ! The alpha dog always wags the Tail when the Studio Head Masters whistle and summon, unless of course Emma open her mouth, then the Tail Wags The Dog !!!
