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.
I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. Jodi L Perry has done it again!!! What a masterpiece of writing skill this author has provided, I couldn't put it down. The story starts off as a gut wrenching heartache, taking you on a journey of the life of a 'hooker.' It is a love story with twists and turns which keep you hanging on the edge of a cliff, hoping that particular people would slip off. This is a story of rediscovery, love, fighting for what you believe in, trust and above all happiness. The story is extremely well written, the story amazing. I was in tears one moment, laughter the next. Jodi L Perry has over the last year has become an author I will place on my 1-click list with-out hesitation, to say she will improve with time is wrong, to say she has got there with her writing is my statement. You cannot go past this book, if I could have given it ten stars I would have easily. Congratulations on such a wonderful book Jodi L Perry

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………
Another outstanding read from author J.L. Perry with a very different backstory. I loved where this book came from, sure we all know the outcome with these books but the story it took me on kept me devoured on every page.
Perry has a knack for making the reader either love or hate her characters, gaining a commitment to the story from the reader from the very beginning of her books. I love how I don’t have to get through half a book for the story to catch me and I love how well rounded her books end.
I’m a huge fan of this author and I look forward to anything else that is published under her name!
Do not judge a book by its cover....in this case the title. I did just that. I thought the lead female character would be a certain way. Boy, was I wrong. This book should never be judged on the title alone. J.L. Perry gave the story and characters strong depth. The element of human trafficking weaved into the story made my heart hurt. It made the story heavy at times, although there were lighter moments to balance the story.
Jade is an awesome heroine. She gives the appearance of being meek & mild mannered. I guess you could even say a bit weak. Weak as Madam M appeared to pull all the strings. In reality, Jade shows tremendous strength as she takes the life she has been given head on. She has layers upon layers of strength that only the perfect man could see in order for him to see the true Jade.
This is Brock Weston. He is the perfect strong hero to Jade. I won't giveaway any spoilers, but he truly gets who she is. Brock sees the strength Jade has to have in order to get through life.
"I take a moment to appreciate everything she is, to appreciate her. I’m not sure she’s even aware how extraordinary she is."
Thank you, J.L. Perry. This is truly an awesome read. I was luck to receive an ARC. If you are looking for a romance with serious topic and bits of lighter moments, this book is for you.
