Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Alessandra Torre.... This is not a story of servitude. This is a story of strength. I was happy in my small town. In my life as a single, 32-year-old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence. I also hadn't gotten laid in three years. Hadn't been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and wearing makeup...a while ago. Then Brett Jacobs waltzed in. Caressed my thigh, dug rough fingers into my hair, lowered his soft mouth to my skin, took sexual control of my mind, and stirred it all around with what he packed in his pants. He flipped my quiet life upside down and crawled into a place in my heart I thought was dead. The issue is his secret. The issue is her. The issue is that I don't even know she exists, and he thinks she's dead. The issue is that shit is about to hit the fan, and I can't hold on to him tight enough. Note to readers: This standalone book contains themes which could be considered dark.

Firstly, I really didn't know whether to give this emotional story 1 or 5 stars because there's no doubt it was well written but it took a very sinister direction that I really really didn't like. From being a flirty fun romance it morphed into something quite different.

I will try not to give anything away in this review but I was totally caught out by this listen unaware of its true nature.... because it started out in a happy place of instant attraction and a sexy one night stand that turned into more sex, passion, caring and love. But then slowly interspersed between those Chapters crept in secrets, suspicions, doubts and very very dark Chapters of someone's horrific reality. And, as it counted down the months then days til that horrific terrifying reality, it starts to get your pulse pounding because you know just where the love story is going to lead you to..... and it's into Hell. However, as the midnight hours turned into dawn, I couldn't stop this listen because I was gripped to every word waiting for the inevitable turn that would change everything...... and then praying for a miracle.

It's mainly told from Riley's POV and very occasionally from Brett's and both narrators did an excellent job. Some listeners may give this 5 stars and they'd be right to but for me, who loves all types of romance, this took an unexpected raw, dark and distressing turn that I just didn't like. But it was one that I had to get through to reach the much needed HEA ending and to hear just how it was accomplished. I also thought that Riley did the dumbest most unrealistic thing ever, that no sane woman would do, but she did live to regret it.

Worth a credit? One of my credits NO even though I liked the characters and the narration however, as explained, although captivated it wasn't in a good way and I didn't enjoy the turn this listen took. But I appreciate other braver listeners may find this a creditworthy purchase. SPOILER ALERT contains talk of torture, kidnapping, the slave market and more.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Very interesting book

First of all this book is not dark. After reading the reviews I was a little hesitant to purchase this book out of fear it would give me nightmares. That wasn't the case. This book gives you a glimpse of the sex trading world but not the whole view. I'd describe it like the movie Taken. Second of all It was an excellent well written book that made me cry at some point towards the end. The characters were well put together and the twists kept me interested. Don't shy away from this book based on the "dark nature" other reviews describe. Like I explained, there's nothing very dark about this book.
