Hooker is one amazing story that kept me on the edge of my seat right up until the last page. I have loved everything that J.L. has written and after Bastard which was phenomenal I didn't think Hooker cold top that...well I was wrong. Hooker is emotional, its suspenseful, its sad, its happy, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry; it makes you feel every available emotion at some point in the story. Every time I thought I had it worked out, BAM I was wrong and it took the story in a different more exciting direction.
Jade had a horrible start to life and when she meets M you think that she is going to have a happy life but you are wrong. While she is happy, sort of, she isn't truely happy until she meets Brock and lets him into her heart. Brock is kind of a jackass in the beginning but you can see that beneath his tough exterior he has a heart of gold and Jade was just the girl to chip away at his exterior for him to become the hero and sweep Jade off her feet. Together Brock and Jade are unstoppable. I will also never look at a snicker bar the same again.
I loved to hate M and I think she is probably my fav character in the book, even though I want to vagina punch her. There is nothing off limits when it comes to her and her ruthlessness has no bounds.
Another character I loved was Rupert, he is Jade's guardian angel. Without the support of Rupert, Jade would have crashed and burned years ago and never would have met Brock so we have Rupert to thank for so much in Jade's life.
I highly recommend Hooker and all books written by JL Perry.
This is another awesome book by J L Perry and would be in my top 5 reads for this year. We meetJade , she’s had a really tough life. Her moth died while giving birth to her and while he father couldn’t’ look after her she was placed into the Foster Care System. She stayed in that system for the next ten years before she was adopted by a wealthy socialite when she was 11 years old. Jade thought all her wishes and dreams had come at once. She was living in a with a rich lady… in a big house… had lots of lovely new cloths…… but (yes there is always a BUT) her adoptive mother had other plans for her new daughter. We meet Brock Weston he grew up in a very privileged household…. He had everything… Lots of Money….. He was extremely good looking…. He had charm… he was successful at work…. And he had a large amount of beautiful women…… He was happy with his life…. And was a confirmed bachelor….. he wasn’t interested in commitment….. Women threw themselves at him all the time with the hope of finally taming the bachelor…….. Brock meetsJade… she is the opposite of every other women he has ever met……. She’s a breath of fresh air…… a challenge……. They spend one night together…. And Brock is smitten…. He is fascinated with her……. He wants her….. he wants more with her than he has ever wanted with anyone else…… and Brock always gets what he wants without fail….. Due to circumstances they are bought back together again……. Will Brock get what he wants???? Will Jades secrets totally shock Brock????? There are twists and turns in this story…… it had me totally captivated right till the end………
Jade has had a horrific upbringing, her mother died during childbirth leaving her in the system and moved from foster home to foster home. Never feeling loved or cared for by another, she hoped that someone would adopt her and she would find happiness. If Jade thought her life was bad before it's nothing compared to what she is about to endure every day with M.
Brock grew up very differently to Jade, he has two parents and a sibling. He comes from wealth, runs a the family business and is free to do what he likes. He's living life as any good looking bachelor with money would with no strings attached.
Meeting Brock will change her whole life. One hot night together leaves them wanting more but Jade knows that can't happen. For one night it's nice to be just Jade to do what she wants and feel for the first time, for one night her life is hers now she's had a glimpse of what life could be like she knows she needs to return to the woman that owns and controls every aspect of her life. But now Brock has had a taste he wants more, and he will do anything to have again regardless of who is in his way.
M and Brock both want Jade, both for different reasons, both always get what they want. One wants to protect her and the other has a contract. Will Jade go back to the only life she knows or will Brock be able to go up against M and protect her?
I really like these characters, Brock is is perfect for Jade he is so sweet and protective of her, he wanted Jade, set his sights and wasn't letting go. Jade is one tough strong cookie, she has had a hard life but never let her past define who she is.
Wow. I was HOOKED - the story follows Jade, who has been brought up in the foster system until, at the age of 11, she is adopted by a seemingly wealthy socialite. Madam Melody (or is it Monster Melody?) ensures that Jade has everything she could ever dream of, personal trainer, clothes, vacations, finishing school, but never love or affection. It soon became clear that Madam had big plans for Jade, and at the age of 18 she was groomed and ready to face life as a high class escort. Brock on the other hand grew up privileged, owned his own company and never had relationships. When Brock and Jademeet at the airport en route to New York the attraction is instant. Jade knows that nothing can come of this, she still has 2 more years with Madam, but when their paths cross in a New York hotel, the temptation is just too much. One night together changes both their lives forever. Brock is used to getting what he wants, Madam Melody never lets her girls get involved with other men. It's a battle of good versus evil with so many twists and turns along the way. I loved the plot, loved the dual POV, some super hot chemistry between Brock and Jade, interesting characters and lots of emotion all make for an entertaining read. I received an advanced copy this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, this story grips you from the beginning! Jodi Perry is an awesome author who shows how diverse she is with this book.
Jade is an orphan who is adopted by a wealthy single woman, this has dire consequences for Jade. Brock is a wealthy CEO of his families security business, he is very successful except never sees himself as the setting down type. The two meet and form an immediate bond.
This story has so many twists and turns that you are definitely intrigued the whole way through. A few times I thought I predicted something to find it a different situation entirely. I really enjoy this 'on the edge of your seat' type of thing in a book.
So many aspects of this book could be discussed however I feel that the emotional roller coaster is paramount. It's through the eyes, ears and heart if each character that we really feel the story! From chuckling out loud to feeling angry, frightened or excited, all are a part of this ride.
I loved the characters Jade, who had a rough upbringing suffering abuse in foster homes, only after being adopted and having to work as a high-class Hooker and stuck in a contract, and Brock the playboy rich boy. Although they meet by chance there is an instant attraction and meet again by chance. Brock can’t understand what he’s feeling for Jade, but doesn’t want to stop feeling it. Jade can’t believe that what she has with Brock will last, as everything from her past reminds her she isn’t wanted, but can’t help the strong feelings she has for him. Even after Brock finds out that she is Hooker, he sets a plan in place to help Jade, leave M, her madam. Just when you think things are working out for the couple there’s some twists thrown in, in the form of interfering family and the return of Jade’s Madam M. Brock and Jade fight for their love strongly before either one of them realises they are in love. Watching Brock the rich playboy transform in being devoted to Jade, and Jade letting go of her insecurities to let Brock in was an amazing read.
Madam Melody adopted Jade because of her looks. She groomed her to become a high class hooker. On Jades 18th birthday she was told of her fate and lost her virginity to the highest bidder. She felt she had no choice because she had no money or anywhere else to go.
Jade goes on mini vacation and meets Brock in the airport. There one night of passion stirs feelings in both of them that neither have shared with another. Jade is afraid of telling him about what she does for living and decides its best just to walk away. Brock is hurt by her walking out on him. He feels there is reason why she walked away and he wants to know why.
This story is an emotional one. Jade is a strong woman for all she has been through and always has a positive outlook on life. Brock is a player until he meetsJade. She makes him want things he never thought he wanted. He wants to give Jade everything she deserves, a happy life with a man that loves her. When he learns about Jade's past will he still want her?
I loved this story except I despised Madam Melody for what she did to Jade. I was happy when Melody got what she deserved. I enjoyed the connection and chemistry between Jade and Brock. Thanks JL Perry for another fantastic read. I look forward to your next release.
Jade grew up learning to be something someone else wanted her to be. not only does she have to go through so much so young she has years to wait to get out of it serving her time when all she wants to do is become a chef. Brock grew up in very different circumstances but all wasnt great. when he meetsjade before and on a flight to New York he knows he needs to have her.
Jade needs him just as much as Brock wants her and through all the struggles he will fight to get his girl. One night changes his whole life. Jades lifestyle could ruin everything but Brock wants her.
This author wrote this story and opened my eyes to a whole new world. She doesn't just write she makes the story so real that you feel like you are actually living the whole book page by page.
