I’d say I’m down on my luck, but that’s an understatement. I’m flat on my ass. Homeless, hungry and in hiding with my little sister at the age of twenty-one, I’ve never been so desperate. I’ve hit rock bottom when I get an offer I can’t refuse. Sell my body to save my sister? There’s nothing I won’t do to keep her safe. I make the rules and I’m not afraid to defend myself if this rich guy crosses the line. But once I see beneath his cold, calculating façade, the lines aren’t so clear anymore.
She’s an intoxicating mix of tough and vulnerable I’ve never known before. This homeless woman who fits right into my upper-class world is running from someone powerful, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. But Quinn isn’t meant to be controlled, so I’m forced to choose between owning her and loving her. I’ve finally met my match, and I’ll do whatever it takes to make her truly mine.
So I must admit I was a tad on the fence about this book, I mean I was worried that Quinn would come off as a victim and that Andrew would be the man who saved her. But I honestly couldn’t have been more wrong, Quinn was everything I could have wanted her to be and more.
So Quinn, is kind of awesome, she might be homeless, but man she is a strong woman. So when you first meet Quinn she is searching for food, trying to get enough food to feed her sister, who is also homeless like her. But unlike a lot of homeless people, Quinn and her sister can’t go to a homeless shelter or for help, because they are on the run, and on the run from something or someone powerful. I loved how much Quinn wanted to take care of her sister, she is willing to do whatever it takes, put her like indefinitely on hold, just to make sure that her sister is safe. How can you not love a woman like that?
When the book starts with Andrew, he is coming off of a gold-digger trying to claim her child was his, and he basically swears to himself that he will never leave himself that open to anyone again. Enter his less than palatable habit of paying women to share his bed with him. Which is of course how he ends up in the path of Quinn. Now that’s not to say that Andrew went out and found a hot homeless person that he could bribe with money (which is honestly what I was afraid of), he actually has his assistant find the women for him. But Quinn is the first person who doesn’t seem to be on board and happy with the arrangement, and this was the make or break for me, was Andrew going to just go through with paying her for physical intimacy or was he going to be more human than that. And thank God, he genuinely feels bad for her and is fascinated by her, and doesn’t want to do anything with her that she doesn’t want to do. Andrew time and time again proves that he is a good guy.
I really did enjoy this book from beginning to end. I loved the chemistry between Quinn and Andrew, and I loved how the two of them make such a good match, in every sense of the word. I was without a doubt emotionally invested in Quinn’s journey and wanted the best outcome for her and her sister. I will say that the ending resolved itself super quick, like it was almost a bit on the anti-climatic side of things, but honestly it didn’t bug me. I would easily recommend this book.
