What would you do for your children?
I loved how we meet Emily aka Brandi, she is a strong fighting women who has more gumption in her pinky then most people will ever have. She is fierce and loyal and most of all a mother to an incredible little boy who needs more than most. And so that she can provide it for him she does anything necessary for that to happen. So what if she gets paid to sleep with men. It’s a job just like any other only she gets paid a heck of a lot more than just the regular old Joe who owns a bar. Just because someone uses their body to make money does not make them weak or uneducated.
Emily is a character I have a lot of respect for maybe because I am a mother with a son who needs more than most, not the same as hers but it’s a common understanding. You would do and say anything to put your children first. I have no judgement for how she takes care of her son.
Marco comes in to the picture this hot Italian man you just want to get down and dirty with. But no, no you don’t expect him to be so patient. I love this about him, just because he pays for a women’s time and body doesn’t mean he gets to be a bastardo as he calls it.
He’s a formidable business man and knows what he wants and will get it at any cost. Even at the expense of others but he is sly about it you don’t really see it so much as feel it.
Watching how Brandi gets under his skin was fun and funny he wants more from her but to her he is a pay cheque and she has to keep it separate.
These two together is explosive. And when her life is in danger and Marco comes to her aid. I love how lines get blurred it’s an incredible story of finding what you didn’t expect.
Also Daniel steals the show as most 9 year old boys do.
Watching him show his mom that it’s okay to be a kid and to not worry so much is sweet and makes you smile more than once.
Here are some of my favorite quotes you had to know they were coming!
“It should matter not what you do for a living. You are still a woman, are you not?” – Marco
“You’re mine. Do you understand? I don’t care what your ------- job is. You. Are. Mine.” – Marco
“Baby girl, you are looking F-I-N-E this evening.” – Leroy bodyguard
“Even the angel has a devil that sits on his shoulder.” – Marco
And can I just say that was sooo mean that Cliffy!! I want more!
If I get down on my hands and knees and beg really, really nicely?
Brandi (Emily) and Marco...what characters?!?..strong, determined, passionate, loyal, stubborn and so human in their flaws and pain.
Emily is so multi-faceted you just keep going so that you can see how the story develops.
Marco is an alpha male who is caught totally unaware by Emily. He owns it though and is thorough in getting Emily to understand how he feels.
This book ends with a cliffhanger as Emily's world shatters..one almost cannot understand why Marco didn't play ball. You almost resent him for the excruciating pain Emily experiences...
So many thoughts and scenario's around the ending of this book..I cannot wait to get my hands on book 2.
My first exposure to Elizabeth Grace and well.. I'm hooked, I want to read all her other books. Not often an author holds you in the palm of her hands throughout a book..this one does..you feel and experience everything the characters do. WELL DONE on such an amazing book!!!
The story is told from Brandi's POV about her life as a high end escort and the love she has for her physically challenged nine year old son. She's not who you imagine an escort might be, she's got dreams for herself and Daniel, and she's working hard to get there. Enter the hot Italian businessman who engages her time exclusively while he's in Vegas working a real estate deal. I won't spoil the story but it's completely engaging.
I'm really looking forward to Burn to find out what happens next, and you will too.
Being an escort is a means to an end and she leaves it at her front door and becomes a doting mother. She has no real personal life and is fine with it. Until.She.Isn't. What changes? Her client Marco Valenti is in Las Vegas on business. He calls Italy home. He captures more than just her interest and he wants her too.
Danger lurks around every corner due to something in Marco's life. Secrets threaten them and chemistry ignites them. Hook ends in a cliffhanger that left me burning for Burn, book two in the Duplicity Duet. I can't wait to read it!
