I received an advance reader edition of this book from Kensington Books and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

I give this book a solid 4 stars. This is one of those books that will work for some readers but not for others. I liked this book and found that it did work for me but many romance readers will not feel the same. This is not a hearts and flowers feel good romance. This romance is rather dark in my mind with characters who have had a tough life.

Laura is a whore and has been one since she was 15 years old. She lives with her friend, Bette, and the pair have taken care of each other. Bette is sick and Laura is doing her best to provide for the both of them. She has always been drawn to the theater and decides to see if she can find work there. She is able to find an honest job selling treats at the theater where she meets Adam. Adam is an actor and aspiring playwright who knows that the key to the play that he has written is Laura. Adam pursues Laura and convinces her to be in his play. The pair become close and eventually Laura and Bette both move into Adam's home for protection from the neighborhood pimp. Adam knows about Laura's past but is able to look beyond that and they both start having feeling for each other.

This book is darker than most historical romances, at least those that I have encountered. Laura has been a prostitute in order to take care of herself and has a hard time believing that anyone will ever see her as anything but a whore. Adam has been at the mercy of wealthy widows in order to find work. They both have a hard time learning to be together without falling back on past behaviors. This is not simply the story of two people falling in love.

H: Adam Lacey

So you got Laura who has a difficult life that forced her to make decisions that she not proud of but she had to do it in order to survive. Then you got Adam who will do almost anything to "make it" . I thought they were a good couple willing to let go of the past for each other. But I didn't feel the heat, the consuming love or want of each other. I thought the book was good

Review: 2.5 stars
General: Unfortunately for me this book didn't hit home. The blurb intrigued me based on concept and my curiosity at what time frame this was taking place. However, I was unable to engage in the plot, characters or the time frame it was set in. I did finish as the overall idea was interesting but it isn't one that I'm keen on reading another from the author. For me everything just was a little flat, the characters weren't as strongly developed as I would have liked and the time frame felt like it was just slapped on for the sake of making the characterizations work.
