In my world, there is no such thing as
love. It is just a lie we whisper into our client’s ear. Love is foreign and
hazardous. What I did not expect was to bare my soul to a man who is as
egotistical as he is dangerous.
His name is Landon. Despite his blackened soul, he tried to save me, but what
he didn't expect was my torturous fate to catch up with me.
To your father, I'm the escort.
To your mother, I'm the whore.
To the legal system, I'm the prostitute.
In the end, I'm just the other woman.
I have no idea if I will continue to survive, if I will ever find my path aside
from the gritty streets I know so well. There is a good chance I will wind up
in the ditch like most women in my position. Surrendering to my fate is the
only choice I have. I must relinquish it all.
Relinquish was not what I expected….. In a
good way! When the story starts with Charlie as a 9 year old, my heart literally
broke for her. Then chapter one brings you up to the now, when Charlie is 18
and leaving her foster home. This foster home disgusts me and I cannot blame
Jayden (Charlie’s only somewhat family) for wanting to leave with Charlie.
Charlie goes in search of a job after her
life savings is stolen, while she slept on the bus to Vegas. The guy, who tries
to help her get a job, ends up collecting on his favor and, at first Charlie
makes herself believe that this is her “boyfriend” taking care of her, but in
her sub conscience, knew she was selling herself.
Landon….. Wow. He is one gorgeous, sexy and
damaged man. He now runs the Blackwell Estate, previous run by his father.
After some run-ins with Charlie in front of a coffee shop, Landon ends up
coming to her rescue, when her “boyfriend” tries to pawn her off on his
friends. This is when Charlie comes to terms with what she was doing the entire
time. After the attack and Landon’s saving, Landon takes Charlie for a drink,
which leads to so much more.
Charlie and Landon’s attraction is one that
they can’t ignore. It’s as if fate keeps throwing them in to each other’s path.
The twists and turns of their story kept me on the edge of my seat and the
mystery behind Landon’s father was a total curve ball. When Landon and Charlie
can no longer deny their Love, these two go “All In.”
