From goodreads: I screw men for money. Not literally, think phone sex operator with a 15 megapixel web cam thrown in. They tell me their deepest, darkest fantasies while paying me $6.99 a minute.
What would possess me to engage in such a business? Throw in a tortured past, 24/7 murderous thoughts, and a desire to keep the innocent people of my small town safe.
I was contained, out of the way, sexcamming my way to utter obscurity until HE came along. A twisted client armed with a target’s name. Annie. And in that name, everything changed.
I had such high hopes for this book and I wanted to love it because the blurb seemed so intriguing. However, I think it fell short of my high expectations and ultimately I was torn between a two and three star rating. And I do have my reasons for settling on three stars…
This is not your typical romance story and initially, that’s what pulled me in. This is the journey of Deanna (aka Jessica) who cams for a living and closes herself to the world. However, her monkey mind is a constant nightmare of a companion and there is a reason why she does what she does for a living. I would say the first half of the book is about her, her memories and her clients. I think I got the picture what camming was all about after two clients and all the other time spent on the others seemed unnecessary.
The alternating POV between her and a few other characters was a bit confusing at first, making the story seem choppy but once I get them all in order, it started to make sense. The pieces of the (psychological thriller) plot started to take shape and I became invested. I wanted to find out what happens to all the parties involved. That part of the book was absolutely riveting and really disturbing, hence where my three star rating comes into play. It’ll make you want to reach through the book and cause some serious pain to the offending pig.
The ending seemed to be rushed and I would have liked more relationship development between Deanna and the other characters in the book, especially her love interest.
It’s safe to say that this book isn’t for everyone because it borders on the genre of erotica and it tackles the topic of a pedophile. I did struggle with that part of the story because it’s grossly disturbing but it’s also what makes the book interesting, I think.
If you are feeling courageous and want something erotic and different…this book has your name on it!
