captivating story but execution could be better
on 10 September 2011
Romance, crime, action, mystery, thriller, good cops/bad cops - all elements of a good story are present. The story is captivating and thought-provoking. I also appreciate that prostitutes are portraited as normal women who have emotions, thoughts, dreams, hobbies, and humour like everyone else; but who unfortunately ended up in the harsh world of prostitution. The main characters Jessie and Gabe are funny, likeable, intelligent and brave; and you make wish to follow them through the end.
So why didn't I think that this book is fantastic? The writing is poor in several places. The story is slow at the beginning, then moves on very quickly, after it suddenly ends.
By all means, give it a try - especially now it's free - it's still a good weekend read!
