This book was completely outside the realm of what I typically gravitate to as far as books go, but I must say I am happy I decided to give this one a go. While I may not be an illegal alien prostitute from Columbia, I think many of us can relate to Hope's rough and tumble exterior and her strong desire for true and unconditional love. This book is dark and WOWSA is it steamy and extremely intense at times! In the end, we can clearly see there is hope for Hope. *pun intended :)* Coming from someone who can take months to get through a book, this one took me one and a half evenings and would've been less if that pesky little thing called sleep didn't get in my way. I honestly enjoyed reading this book and found it hard to put down! An excellent read for sure!
I really enjoyed this book. There was a major plot twist at the end that was a total surprise but explained Stephen's reaction to information he obtained earlier in the story. I would definitely like to know what happens next!
The only complaint I had about the story is the number of characters. While I understand the point in telling the story from the voice of various characters, I honestly had a hard time keeping up with who was who and who did what. It may have been easier to keep up if I'd read this over a period of a couple of days instead of weeks...
Overall though, I enjoyed reading this book!
