What I rated it
What it’s about
My life has never been my own. I’ve always been a rule follower—the obedient girl who always did what she was told. I played the part given to me and got engaged to the man my parents set me up with. He was supposed to be my Prince Charming. He promised me a happily ever after, only he delivered a nightmare instead. Now I’m on the run. No money. No plan. Just freedom. How ironic is it that my desperate escape lands me in a place called Hope Town? I lost hope a long time ago.
Beau Rivers Lair
I’m a manwhore. It’s a known fact and exactly how I like it. I make my own rules and live without expectations. Returning to Hope Town to help the woman who raised me with her restaurant meant my past was here to greet me, but I refuse to allow the mirage of possibilities to engulf me a second time around. I don’t believe in love or fairy-tale endings. There’s lust, and there’s screwing. I don’t have time for anyone or anything outside of these two principles. There is no hope for me. Accept it or not … you’ve been warned!
This novella was a really good read that I really enjoyed! I love a good story about a woman who has beaten the odds. She may have been beaten down, but she isn’t going down without a fight.
This spin on the Hope Town world brought about a young female who has always done what she was told. When she finally is able to escape the horrible circumstances she’s been forced to endure, she is finally able to spread her wings a bit. She proves to us she still has some fight left in her.
I loved that we’re brought back yet again to Hope Town, where we see some familiar faces and hear some familiar names. Corps Security was one of my favorite series years back, and it’s like coming home whenever I read one of these novellas.
The relationship between Beau and Bleu felt natural, but there were many times I just wanted to knock some sense into Beau! Eventually, he got his head screwed on right, and comes through for Bleu when she needs him the most.
This novella was a short but sweet, very enjoyable read! Overall, I really enjoyed this novella, and you will too!
