Genres: Romance, Contemporary
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.
Not having read any other works by Brenda Rothert before, I was extremely impressed with His, it was a page-turner that had me reading nonstop. It's definitely not your typical Cinderella story, but it's unique enough to keep you wanting for more.
It all begins with a simple proposition, sleep with a wealthy man for one night and receive $500 dollars in the process. If anyone were asked that, some might simply say no, but not Quinn. After been a runaway for a couple if years now, she has to take care of her younger sister, and $500 dollars would help her get her sister the medication that she needs. So when a stranger comes up to her and asks her exactly that, she immediately accepts not knowing what she was getting herself into. Now, it was only supposed to be one night, but meeting Andrew changed the game, and now she has to do her job without getting her feeling crushed in the process.
Andrew is a wealthy man, who can get just about any women he wants, but that is exactly why he doesn't want the women he attracts. They are all after his money, and or attachments that he is not willing to give. So when he gets the idea to pay women to sleep with him for one night, he thinks that he just solved his problems, but meeting Quinn has left him in doubts that his money can't even solved. Now as he learns more about her, the attraction and chemistry between them grows even more as days go by. It is until they start to reveal their secrets that they both wondered if there could be a potential relationship for them in the future or not.
I really enjoyed reading this book, it was filled with twists and turns that had me reading until the very end. The characters have their pasts that they're trying to move away from, but when they meet they find out that they could confide on each other and grow stronger. There is a part of the story that might just be a bit hard to believe, I mean who would actually do what Quinn did, but it really works out well in the end. I loved the ending very much, I would highly recommend reading this story, it will not disappoint. :)
