When I read a book I expect to read something similar to what the blurb promises I will read. The blurb for this book is not exactly off the mark, but it covers the last 40% of the book only. This review will be spoilery because I believe the potential reader should know what they are getting into. First of all I was surprised to find out that Whiskey is an escort. In the prologue she seems more like a prostitute, but that is explained later in the story. Then she meets Sawyer has a magical night with him, they fell for each other, but she decides to leave him and avoid him while she tries to become a woman who is more fit to be with him. Unfortunately, she doesn't get the chance because she is kidnapped, rapped countless times, was forced to participate in an orgy and was given too many drugs. Whiskey was ganked rapped and the author failed to warn the reader. In the email I received from the author at the end of the blurb you can read a warning (displayed below), but last night I checked the GR blurb to remember what was going on in the book I did not find it. By the time this review was written the warning was missing on Goodreads and amazon. I don't know who decided to remove it, but I believe the readers should know what they are getting into.

The heroine manages to get away from those evil people and finds a job at a burlesque club. That's when the blurb and the books content start to match. Sawyer appears before Whiskey's odyssey begins and tries to find her. His and Whiskey's relationship is one of the worst cases of insta lust. They don't get to spend a lot of time together and yet they are crazy for each other. To make things even better in the beginning of the book the author introduced us to the girls who work at the burlesque club. I was worried that I wouldn't remember the info that was given to me, but as it turns out I had nothing to worry about. I barely saw the other women. With the exception of Jeanne the others have a couple of lines tops. And we don't even learn their real names. For me if the author had decided to skip the kidnapping stuff and focused more on the club and the girls this book would have been so much better.
I want to read the second book in the series only because I want to see how things are going. I like the idea of reading Jeanne's book. I believe that a reader who knows exactly what s/he is getting into will enjoy this book more than I did.

I am a mother to two young children, who in turn keep me young. I live in Dublin, Ireland but, I’m originally from South Devon in the UK. I work full time in a pharmacy and write in all my spare time: in my lunch hour, when watching TV at night and anywhere. I have always been interested in reading from a young age and then 2 years ago I was given a kindle as a present and it was the best thing that happened to me. I was able to read lots of books every week and then I started to write reviews for all the books I read. I took this one step further and started my own facebook page – Sparkling Pink Bookshelf. I intended to upload all of my reviews for the books I read. This was purely for pleasure and then I answered a post on Facebook for someone to read for reviews and thought I had died and gone to heaven. I was reading about 7/8 books a week, the kindle made this achievable. I would read at any opportunity I could, even staying up til the small hours to finish a book. I loved it. Then one day I was asked to beta read a book – I loved this side of it, it was so exciting. I have worked with a number of indie authors and have remained loyal to a few select authors and I beta read all their After a year or more of doing this, I thought maybe I could write some of the stories that were in my head and I just decided to write and see what happened. I wrote about 70% of a story and then saw a post for the NaNoWriMo competition – to write 50,000 words in 30 days, I decided that this was a challenge I wanted to take and the Til Death Us Do Part series was born. I am always thinking of situations that can be turned into a story and have started a few stories, which in turn will be completed and released to my readers. I love to hear what my readers have to say about my work and please find my links below. Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy this series of books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
