OMG how can you not love this book! It's everything and more than I need from an author. Jodi is amazing with her writing! I REALLY get her wave length.....
Jade Davis is an abused foster kid that gets adopted at the age of 11. She is slowly groomed to become a high class working girl. She's too good for this kind of work but feels she owes her (boss) adoptive mother her life. With no other choice, she continues to work out her 7 year contract hoping for a better life when it's over to do what she'd really like which is to open a small restaurant to continue her love for cooking. Jade sets out on her yearly vacation with her body guard Rupert to New York that's where she literally bumps in Brock Weston and the story begins.
Brock Weston is your typical multi-millionaire, good looking rich fit body and no commitments kind of guy. When he bumps into Jade he gets more than he bargained for. What starts out as a one night fling gets them both needing more and when their paths cross at a party where Jade is an escort date for the host, that's when Brock finally finds out what his mystery woman does for a living but it doesn’t stop him from wanting her more.
The heartache they both go through to try to be with each other really pulled at my heart strings! Her madam and his father…ugh, I wanted to punch so many times and shout at them to let them be together! This story engrossed me so much! I loved it and couldn't put it down! It's a must read for all hopeless romantics like me! Brock is a knight in shining armour
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, 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.
Jade may be one of the toughest, more resilient female characters I've ever read!
Adopted at 11 by "Miss M" - a woman who is determined to turn Jade into the perfect, compliant woman. Dieting, fashion, finishing school all became the norm for Jade as she tried to grow up searching for the love and affection she'd always craved.
The moment she turned 18, the world as she knew it changed forever. Forced to sign a contract for 7 years, Jade become one of "Miss M's" girls and repay her.
Brock wants to break free from the family mould and be his own man. So when he runs into Jade, he can't let go.
Brock is a sweetheart and all he wants is Jade.
This book breaks your heart and gives you hope - all with a twist you didn't see coming!
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 meets Jade. 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.
