Vegas hooker and guy with a shady past. Lies, murder, prostitution, revenge but eventually HEA.
Brandi, the escort with a heart of gold that bleeds for her son, Daniel, and him only. I loved that she has hopes a dreams that are far bigger than what she does for a living. When work brings her to the door of the mysterious and uber sexy Marco Valenti, all bets are off. This man. I don't even know how to put him into words. He is broody and dominant but also refined and a gentleman. I liked that, initially, I didn't learn much about him except for what he does when his suit comes off! These two steam up the sheets and the door and the shower and the...you get the point. The chemistry is undeniable and as Marco demands more of her time, they come to an understanding and even a friendship of sorts.
But when outside forces plot to get their way no matter the cost, Brandi is left in the cross fire- and by extension, Daniel. Gah! I didn't see this turn coming but I enjoyed how it changed the dynamic of Marco and Brandi's quasi relationship. Cue increased intensity and a mother of a twist!
I really liked how much the Daniel situation changed both Marco and Emily. They were living on emotions and those feelings carried over into the choices they were making. I absolutely LOVED getting some Marco POV. There was so much more to that sexy Italian than what you saw on the surface. He felt deeply and loved wholeheartedly. When he lost both of those things he had to channel his anger and pain into something, anything. Ugh, my heart broke for them. They were fighting for the same thing just on different sides and with a different end game in mind. And Emily! This woman never ceased to surprise me. She has to be one of the strongest female's I've read. The lengths she was willing to go to see justice served had me on the edge of my seat.
I can't get into all the details because this duet is something you just have to read and experience for yourself. Yes you will yell and throw your kindle. Yes you will want to shake Elisabeth Grace for doing this to your head and your heart. Yes you will want a hug and a glass of wine. But most of all you will want so much more of Emily and Marco
This was my first read of Elisabeth Grace's work. The blurb had me intrigued from the moment I read it and the cover had me wanting it even more! Grace did not disappoint with Hook!
This is a tale of someone who's been dealt a bad hand in life. Someone who's struggled. Those who "loved" her turned their backs, when she needed them most. Brandi, the hooker, whore, prostitute. Call her what you will, but one thing stands true. She's not ashamed of her work. She's done what needed to be done in order to give her disabled son the best care possible and still keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. She's overcome obstacles life's thrown at her….she's persevered!
"Early on, life had handed me that lesson on a tarnished silver platter. But I'd be damned if I sat back and let life roll right on over us, leaving its tread marks behind."
Mmmm Marco. I can't way enough about him. Marco Valenti is a hotter than sin, sexy, dreamy Italian who's in Las Vegas on business. His life is work. He doesn't have time to do relationships; scheduling the occasional prostitute to satisfy his needs. He uses women as temporary bed warmers. That is…..until Brandi.
" "Cosa mi stai facendo?" I looked at him in confusion, having no idea what he'd said. " What are you doing to me?" "
Brandi and Marco have an undeniable, attraction and connection to each other. They come into each other's lives like a hurricane, shaking up the lives they've known since they can remember. The chemistry between these two is breathtakingly palpable! I was in deep swoon with Marco Valenti and if were into chicks, I'd be swooning for Brandi too!
Will Marco's secrets destroy what they have?
Will Brandi push him away?
"Careful how far out you wade," he said in a low voice laced with warning. "These are shark-infested waters."
Hook had me hooked (pun intended) from page one! The story was mesmerizing, intoxicating. I was so entranced with this story that I couldn't put it down. Grace brings out the heart pounding, edge of your seat scenes in Hook! I flipped page after page until I had completely finished the book and was left begging for more!
Bravo Elisabeth; on a beautifully written, edge of your seat, steamy read! I can't wait for Burn!
