Hook - Book Review




Blurb

Women loathed me without even knowing my name. Men coveted the very idea of me.

Escort. Call girl. Prostitute. Hooker. Whore.

I'd heard it all. Done it all. 

Over the years I'd felt a lot of things about my occupation...but not regret--never regret. I had my reasons for doing what I did and nothing and no one had ever made me question them.

UNTIL MARCO VALENTI.

He'd changed me and I'd naively fed into the fairy tale.

But Marco wasn't my Prince Charming. He had secrets of his own. Secrets that would eventually rip away everything I held dear




5 Stars

Sin City.  What happens here stays here.

Brandi is an escort, not by choice, but because she needs the money to help raise her disabled son, Daniel.   Then Marco Valenti strolls into her life and makes her an offer she can't refuse.  To give up the other men and be at his beck and call.  No other men, he'll give her the $$ for her time, but time for him only.  Brandi needs the money for her dream project, so she accepts, but he only gets the nights.  Days are for Daniel.  

Time spent with Marco is different from the others.  He cares about her, he woos her, he loves her.   She does things with him that she didn't do for the others.  She lets herself hope.  

Things change when a threat is made on Brandi's life.  She must rely on Marco to keep her and Daniel safe, but that means letting him into her fragile heart and life.  Does she trust him enough?  

I couldn't put this book down!  I was Hook-ed from the beginning when I read the ending!  Now I'm seething for book 2!!    Brandi and Marco are both well-written characters.  There were things that Marco did that scared me, but it was because of his love for Brandi.  What I didn't understand was the ending.  I never saw that coming!  I was shocked and it kept coming and coming. It was a punch in the gut, but I should have known, I read it first at the beginning of the book.  Elisabeth Grace sets us up for love, heart break, and shock.  Well played.  Well played!

If you have Kindle Unlimited this book is free!  Even if you don't run and one click this book.  You won't be sorry.
