Quinn
I’d say I’m down on my luck, but that’s an understatement. I’m flat on my ass. Homeless, hungry and in hiding with my little sister at the age of twenty-one, I’ve never been so desperate. I’ve hit rock bottom when I get an offer I can’t refuse. Sell my body to save my sister? There’s nothing I won’t do to keep her safe. I make the rules and I’m not afraid to defend myself if this rich guy crosses the line. But once I see beneath his cold, calculating fa├žade, the lines aren’t so clear anymore.

Andrew
She’s an intoxicating mix of tough and vulnerable I’ve never known before. This homeless woman who fits right into my upper-class world is running from someone powerful, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. But Quinn isn’t meant to be controlled, so I’m forced to choose between owning her and loving her. I’ve finally met my match, and I’ll do whatever it takes to make her truly mine.

{ review } .

This was a book that I didn't love, but I also didn't not like. It was very middle of the road for me. There were times I was hooked and so completely drawn into the book, and other times that I fought the need to put it down and start a different book (which I do normally, so it's not like that's a huge indicator of whether or not I like a book).

Quinn was such a strong heroine for our story. She's protective of her sister and was a likable character; she had her flaws and little things that annoyed me, but altogether, I enjoyed her character. Then there was Andrew; while he may have money, his life wasn't all that pretty, either. He had his own roads he had to stumble through to get to the place he was at in life, and watching as these two opposite-sides-of-the-tracks characters find common ground in one another was beautiful.

The pacing of the story was done well and I felt that the emotion was given time to grow and expand. Altogether, this was an enjoyable read!
