This book could have been a really good read except for 1 thing --- Mia suffered brain damage and is like a child. That was rather creepy. There were times when she seemed like she was under the age of 10 but at other times, her thoughts made her same older -- spoiler !!!! the part were her father is killed (and her father definitely needed to be finished off) she pats him on the chest and says bye bye --- there were so many parts that made her seem really young mentally that I could not root for them to be together ---- I was just to weirded out by the whole idea. If Mia had not been child-like, I think that this would have been a good read ... I know I keep saying it, but it was just a little too creepy.

This one was just creepy and weird to me. I really wanted to like gator but after reading about Idget Gidget,yes that's her name, being childlike and carrying around a baby doll it was waaaay too creepy for me. Skip it. I wish I had, didn't finish it as it was.

This was an awful book, I'm surprised Amazon allowed it to be published. It's the story of a hired killer who teams up with a brain-damaged girl. I don't want to say he falls in love with her, though that's how it's presented. I'm used to MC stories making light of rape, domestic abuse, drug use, etcetera, but 'Gator' takes it to a whole new level.The whole story makes a mockery of mental handicaps, acting like they're no big deal. The character, Mia, who may or may not be underage, became brain damaged as a result of a sex game which involved asphyxiation. This is not a joke! But Hunter acts like it's the equivalent of a broken arm or something, where you spend six weeks in a cast and after that you're back to normal. So what you have is a hired killer in a beautiful love story (snark) with a brain damaged woman who before that was a child prostitute, and it's treated like they're just normal people overcoming normal setbacks. I felt like I needed a flea bath after reading this.

I feel like I should be weirded out by Gator and Mia's relationship but I'm not. Gator is haunted by his past, doesn't want Mia to be haunted by hers. He has some sort of a moral compass when it comes to her. He has made her his, and won't take advantage of her like everyone else in her life. I find that admirable in a very twisted way. Gator is constantly fighting his rough nature, trying be better for Mia even though she doesn't know any better. They couldn't be more perfect for each other though-both damaged, lost looking to be owned by someone.

I just read this again. It's one of those books that you want to get out once a year and read it again.

Most books are fun reads, and you can't wait for the next one. This one is dark, but a classic. Bijou Hunter does not try to hide the characters faults, she not try to make them better then they are, but she does make them Triumphic over the evil that destroyed their childhood.

Just Excellent.

I must confess I picked this book up warily based on the comments from other reviewers about the childlike nature of the heroine and how the hero is an unrepentant killer. I think it would be more accurate to describe the heroine who, for reasons of self-preservation, puts herself into a zombie like state and because she did experience oxygen deprivation as a child, a part of her brain is damaged, limiting her ability to be as articulate as she'd like to be. However, this doesn't mean she thinks/perceives at a childlike level - once she is under Gator's protection, she really grows to where she sees Gator's insecurities and knows how to calm him. The childlike behavior you initially read about (her fascination with snow globes for instance) are more a result of lack of socialization which she quickly overcomes once she's out of the clutches of her pimp.

Gator is someone who has no problem killing the scum of society (and they are truly scum). He is not a psychopath about it and he doesn't try to gloss over his killings as a heroic deed. It is a beautiful thing to read how he slowly builds the relationship with the heroine. I really liked how, after rescuing the heroine, he had her checked out by both a doctor and dentist. That really made sense to me, seeing how badly she had been treated throughout her life. One thing that was unrealistic, was the heroine not having any STDs (highly unlikely with the clientele she was forced to serve) - I know, no one wants to read about that and neither do I, but maybe if her character had been a high class escort whose clients always wore condoms, that would have made the fairly clean bill of health believable.

This isn't a breezy, lite romance. The backdrop of the book is actually hard to think about, although it likely happens more than most of us would like to think. But Bijou does it so much better than I could have expected and in the end, it IS an erotic romance and it certainly fits that bill!

"Gator", or Jake, grew up in the swamps more or less fending for himself, and once he left, becomes,due to lack of any real skills other than killing things, a contract assassin. And he's a successful one...thinking of settling down for a while and building his dream house in Nicaragua (yes, I said, hunh?, but I've since learned it's actually an up and coming area for people looking for a good, tropical lifestyle without needing to be rich). Scouting out his last job, he sees Gidget (later she takes the name Mia) through the scope of his rifle and immediately feels she is "his". Gidget/Mia is a prostitute, with her father her pimp, and Jake finds out pretty quickly she may not be all there. But he's made the decision and commitment and he's keeping her.

I won't spoil the book by explaining the details about Mia, but will make a point to say, since it seems several people missed it or ignored it, that Mia wasn't incompetent, and there was no rape, force or coercion. Jake would have let her go - she didn't want him to. And there's a point in the book where she is thinking to herself about the fact that she has all these thoughts she wishes she could express - she just can't figure out how to express them (for those who may have read the book, I was thinking part of her problem may have been damage to her communication abilities).
