Hi guys, guess I'm going first (thanks, Brigitta). :)
Book name: Carly
Link: Carly
Genre: Mystery, with an underlying touch of thriller
Word count: 8600
I can give a mobi copy if you PM me your email address, it is free if you have KU (please don't forget to add you received an ARC for an honest review, Amazon is getting very strict).
FYI
It may be the end of next week before I get the file to you, I have a heavy schedule over the next 5 days.

Steven Simpson | 5 comments Don't you have to purchase (or be gifted) a copy to be able to review it on Amazon? That is, if you do not have a KU account.

No, that's not neccessary. You can review whatever you want, you just need an account.
