SynopsisI'm Devon Harper and there are only two certainties in my life: 1. I live to dance. 2. I'm a prostitute. Do you know when your life is suddenly turned upside down? Setting in action a sequence of events, you never saw coming. That's what happened to me. My story is not a pretty one, nor is it your typical love story. My world was rocked at 18 and again three years later. My life is a series of let downs. The only constant in my life is dance. When unlikely ally, Enzo, enters my messed up life I start to believe that just maybe there's hope for me yet. Trying to get a degree in dance and get out of prostitution might leave me with more to lose than before.
My review is going to be a work in progress due to not being finished with the book. This is what I can say for now...this book has it all...mystery, sex, a HOT ALPHA male, and a strong woman. From the untimely death of her mother, Devon is forced into a life of prostitution to fulfill a debt owed by her mother to the Boss. Throughout Devon's life, she has always thought her mother loved the lifestyle more than she loved her. Little did she know, it was really just the opposite. Her mother remained in the business to keep her out of it. Did this work? Of course not. Now Devon has to fight and find a way out of it. During this fight, she unexpectedly meets a cop, who happens to not be on the Boss' payroll, named Enzo. He is determined to befriend her and become her confidant, her protector, her more. Does she let him in? Honestly, I don't know because I haven't finished the book. My opinion is that she should. I know she is just trying to protect him, but doesn't she deserve that same protection? Anyway...stay tuned for part 2 of my review...the finished product.
Be sure to grab this one...you won't be disappointed.
PART 2...OMG...I finished the book and it is suspenseful, mysterious, and so TABOO!!! Seriously, heed the warnings on this book...it is definitely dark! Devon is an extremely strong heroine who doesn't break throughout all the trauma she has endured her entire life. Enzo, a man who doesn't take "NO" for an answer, is not only strong, but devoted to Devon even though he knows what she is going through at her "Father's" house. I found myself holding my breath through many scenes, only breathing after I knew Devon survived yet another traumatic visit from her father and step-brother, as well as her pimp the Boss, aka Brian.
This book will not only make you hold your breath but it will hold your attention. It pulls you in from the beginning and will carry you until the end. The author continually throws you curve balls so you never know what is about to hit you next. I definitely loved this book...the mystery, the suspense, and the taboo nature (hopefully that doesn't make me crazy). I hope to see more books by this author...more sex from Devon and Enzo would be nice too. Anyhow...great book, seamless writing and transitions that offer multiple POV's. Not to be missed out on!
