I have no idea how Ashley survived to adulthood.
Porn is an interesting industry and many people are fascinated by it. I think it was really great and unique that the author came at it from the point of view of a child growing up with a mother who was a porn star. Ashley made a couple comments that let you into the world she grew up in and her connections helped her and Michael solve a case. Even though Michael and his partner judged her at first, Michael realizes that she is not only a great person but someone who is vulnerable and is not as hard as she makes others think she is.
All in all this was an OK romantic suspense story.
