Slut (Labels Book 2) Kindle Edition
Rebecca “Bex” Foxworth likes that description of herself. It makes her sound strong, dangerous, and powerful—like she’s standing against some grand injustice by using her body as she sees fit. That’s how her friend Claire Howard sees her and if Claire has taught her anything, it’s that labels are defined by the people who wear them, and not the other way around.
But SLUT is more than a label to Bex: it’s her armor. It protects her from ever having to share her true self. The loop in her head tells her she’s innately flawed and wholly unworthy. Why else would her parents insist she go under the knife for a new nose, a new body, and plastic perfection?
That’s something Thornton Henry Edgeleaf would never understand. Thornton is perfect, in every way—handsome, worldly, passionate—with just one unforgivable flaw: he’s utterly sincere. It makes Bex want to run screaming, back into the familiar, indifferent arms of men who won’t fail to dismiss and mistreat her. But nothing’s as easy as it used to be…

Sara Wylde definitely has a way with words and knows how to dig deep into a character's psyche. Readers will see a bit of themselves in each of her characters and, hopefully learn along with them. We all have our demons and we all label people, even ourselves. Learning not to live by those labels is the hardest battle.
If you've read Fat (Labels Book 1), you'll know what I am talking about. Whether you are fat, were fat, or simply uncomfortable with your body shape, size, looks, for any reason, Fat touched you. Or at least, it should have. Through Claire, we learned that no matter how we physically view ourselves, no matter how other people view our physicality, it is how we see ourselves that truly counts; and that even if we have a deeply held negative view of ourselves, we can still find the path to loving ourselves.
Slut (Labels Book 2) reaches inside to force out a different kind of preconception. This is one of sheer physicality; sexuality, sexiness, prowess.
Saranna's Label books remind me of an incredible and moving speech made by Barbra Streisand in 1992. She presented a list of points that was true then and is true now: the difference in how we view men and women when they are doing the exact same thing.
" A man is commanding – a woman is demanding. A man is forceful – a woman is pushy."
When it comes to sex, it is no different. A man who sleeps around is a stud; a woman is a slut. Why the double-standard?
In Slut, we get to know Sexy Bexy (Rebecca) and join her as, like Claire, she learns to love herself, but Bex is on a much different journey. She has spent her life receiving affirmation - but really nothing else - from the hunt and chase of a new sexual partner; but once they're in bed, she's detached. She hides everything behind the physicality of sex.
Bex claims the label of Slut; she defines herself by it (the label doesn't define her); but as we get to know her, we learn that, like all of us, the face she shows the world isn't necessarily the face she sees in the mirror.
Then comes Thornton Henry Edgeleaf, who stirs up thoughts and emotions that Bex doesn't want to deal with; yet . . . there's something about Thornton. Can she get in touch enough with herself to be in a committed relationship? And can she want that true connection enough to see it through?
Slut also allows us insight into other sides of characters we already know, like Gavin, showing us just how complex people can really be. It adds to the depth of this wonderful, not-to-be-missed book.
Sexy Bexy or Rebecca is hiding her real feelings through sex. During the story she pulls open the layers and deals with them. I loved that I felt her emotional scars but also her healing. Her character was real and her reactions felt real. The humor lifted the mood on some real serious emotional times but worked really well.
I loved the secondary characters and warmed up to her father. Thornton was hot and almost perfect; Ryan and Rosa are awesome friends. I hope the next book is about one of them.
Now I have to read the first book in this series because this story was that good.
I feel like the author is really speaking from her heart with this book series and I hope she continues to write more.
The characters are very likeable and very real to me.
I also enjoyed the fact that we got to hear more about Claire and what was going on with her.
