HIS by Brenda Rothert - available now
A contemporary romance, standalone title
I’d say I’m down on my luck, but that’s an understatement. I’m flat on my ass. Homeless, hungry and in hiding with my little sister at the age of twenty-one, I’ve never been so desperate. I’ve hit rock bottom when I get an offer I can’t refuse. Sell my body to save my sister? There’s nothing I won’t do to keep her safe. I make the rules and I’m not afraid to defend myself if this rich guy crosses the line. But once I see beneath his cold, calculating façade, the lines aren’t so clear anymore.
She’s an intoxicating mix of tough and vulnerable I’ve never known before. This homeless woman who fits right into my upper-class world is running from someone powerful, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. But Quinn isn’t meant to be controlled, so I’m forced to choose between owning her and loving her. I’ve finally met my match, and I’ll do whatever it takes to make her truly mine.
Holy crap was this book good. I loved the intensity that I felt while reading this book. Quinn has been running with and caring for her sister for so long that when she meets Andrew she has forgotten how to let other people take care of her. She has been on the streets hiding from her past and keeping her sister safe with Bean's help. Andrew sees Quinn and he knows she is different. He wants to do everything in his power to save her and protect her but will she let him in to help her. Will he be able to let her in as well? Can Quinn figure out how to be a part of the world she ran away from again? Will their secrets come out? Can Quinn continue to protect her sister alone or will she finally let Andrew help her?
You have so many questions as this book moves forward that you can't stop reading. I hated every time that I had to put this book down because it meant I spent hours and hours thinking about what I thought would happen next in this book. There are very few authors I can say that about and I absolutely love when I feel that way. I will definitely be looking for more by this author in the future.
This book had amazing characters and a unique plot. I can honestly say that I have never read a book with a plot like this one. I was left guessing at every twist and turn. I would love to delve deeper into Andrew's company in the warehouse. I was surprised when Quinn actually told Andrew why they ran. I was left without any questions and it is definitely an HEA ending. Can't wait to read more.
