I'm just sick. SICK. And I'm so angry that it's really hard not to cast aspirations on the author. After reading this and Bedded by Blackmail this morning, both by the same author, I can say I will never read anything by this author again. Ever.
In this book the male main character since he's not a hero. He's a pretty much a rapist. And considering the poor lead female character has major post traumatic stress after being subjected to a night of humilation by the main male character, rape is not far off, at all. He tries to explain this away by saying he heard she was that kind of woman anyway so...
Yes Eve does read him the riot act. But she still goes back to him and spends her life with him? WHY?
And the "twist" that Alexi's sister was both forced into prositution by rich men, and than he saves women from it, including one who goes and guilts Eve by "he's totes a nice guy. really. i mean he saved us so that totally cancels out what he did to you."
Both books I read by this author involve men buying women, using them, making them feel unclean and dirty, Eve responding to this in an extreme though understandable manner. So I'm done with this author. She will never get another moment of my time or money.
The plot has been covered by others, so forgive me if I don't include it. Though the basic is rich jackass buys woman who is desperate and trying to save her brother whose a little kid and in a wheelchair and she and her mom run a rehab clinic for kids in wheelchairs. But it totally, according to some weird damn logic in this book, would have been fine if she was one of them evil rich wimmens who entraps men with their sinister lady bits to get money or luxury goods.
I can't recommend this book to anyone, but I seriously want to warn off survivors of sex trafficking and rape, as while the phrase arguably gets overused, this book is triggering as hell. There are lovely, loving, funny, sweet and sexy romance novels out there.
This is not one of them.
