I can’t say I was too fond of either McKenna or RJ. They are both selfish people to a point, but also have a kind of honor about them, albeit tarnished. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone could take the high road to get what they wanted? But that’s not the way our world works, and McKenna and RJ know the dark underbelly better than most.
McKenna was equally weak and strong, depending on her circumstance. RJ was not as fleshed out as a character to me and he moved around like a shadow most of the time, never quite in the light. A byproduct of his past but something that bugged me nonetheless.
Not to give away any surprises I was let down by the missing woman mystery resolution as well as the answer to McKenna’s quandry. This was a sad and dark story where even the happy ending wasn’t all that happy. Even with all the negative energy this produced in me it still kept me reading and had a few surprises I didn’t see coming.
Caught up in a life built on secrets and blackmail, there isn’t much McKenna Lacey can do to change her circumstances. She’s been bought and paid for by a man who has no problem using her body for his own selfish needs. She bides her time, but doesn’t trust when a way out comes from the most unlikely of places—the scarred man who breaks into her home.
RJ has his own history with the man who owns McKenna. On the search for a missing woman, RJ thinks McKenna might be able to provide answers. It’s a simple thing—lay out his case and give McKenna a chance to help him, and herself in the process. What isn’t easy is knowing he can’t have the broken woman, but wanting her anyway.
