Blog Tour: The Man Upstairs by Jade West

She really was a Cinderella. Shame I wasn’t a Prince Charming.
The Man Upstairs, a deliciously dirty erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Jade West, is available now! You don’t want to miss this dark, taboo romance featuring a tortured hero.

There’s nothing more dangerous than someone who has nothing to live for…

The man upstairs in apartment six doesn’t belong here, in our rundown block on the slum side of the city.

High-class and educated, suited and booted, and at least thirty years my senior.

Yes. Thirty whole years.

But that doesn’t matter, he’s absolutely gorgeous.

What does matter is, they say he’s a disgraced teacher that preys on his college students. A filthy, sick man, who deserves prison.

Other residents are always repeating the same morbid mantra.

Rosie, don’t ever talk to that dirty freak upstairs, no matter what. Don’t you dare!

So, I did what I was told and stayed out of his way, and I never, ever talked to the man upstairs.

Not until one crazy bad night, in total desperation, when I had nowhere else to turn…

Trigger Warning: This novel contains some scenes and situations that may be triggering, including domestic violence and suicidal thoughts. There are also some very taboo and hardcore sex scenes.

It was five months ago that our block got a new resident upstairs in apartment number six. The new resident might have been beautiful, without the heaviness of the world on his shoulders.

He was tall, with dark hair stranded with silver, and sculpted eyebrows over bright green eyes. Well-dressed but unkempt, in tailored suits slightly too big for his lean frame. He looked gaunt, like he’d seen happier days. Much, much happier days…

A man like him shouldn’t be here in block four of Crenham Drive, with its faded green carpet hallways. He was out of place amongst the stale smell and the chipped windowsills, and the broken lock on the door downstairs.

No. The man in apartment six didn’t belong here, but he’d arrived with a barrage of whispers and rumours. Disgusting, seedy, nasty. Fucked up. Perverted. Arrogant, reclusive. Sinister.

They said he was a disgraced teacher, who’d preyed on his students. A sick man, who deserved prison. Someone on the run.

They said a lot of things, in fact.

The other residents would scowl at me with hissed voices, always the same morbid tune.

Rosie, don’t you ever, ever talk to the man upstairs.  

You’d better stay the fuck away from the man upstairs, he’s trouble, Rosie.

So I, sweet little Rosie, heeded their advice. I’d shiver whenever I caught sight of him, eyes dropping whenever he passed by me in the hall. I did what I was told and I never, ever talked to the man upstairs.

Not until one night, in total desperation, when I had nowhere else to turn…

Best known for Sugar Daddies, Bait and Call Me Daddy, she began her career in 2015 with the launch of her debut novel, Dirty Bad Wrong – the first of the Dirty Bad series.

She is a dirty, obsessive fantasist, who couldn’t hold back the words if she tried.

Outside of writing filthy romance novels, she likes sparkly things, black velvet and businessmen in suits. Late nights, and 90s game shows, and the dramatic lyrics of pop ballads.

Oh, and chocolate fudge cake. She likes that a lot, too.
