Foxxy was abandoned as a child and raised in foster homes until she ran away, only to be taken in by a pimp. We start her story right after she's been beaten and gang raped as punishment for holding on on her pimp Eddie. She's vowed to get revenge and make him pay and it had me hooked. Then the story saunters off into the unbelievable and lost me.
Richard Tate the man of many aliases sees Foxxy at a fund raising event. He decides he must find out who she is and make her part of his life. Within one day, he not only finds her but has hired her as an escort and has her in his hotel suite trying to convince the jaded hooker to trust him with all her secrets.
This book started out strong for about a minute and then just fell flat. While the author keeps telling us how big and strong Richard is, he comes across as an insecure and bumbling. His inner dialogue and behavior don't match the rich, strong, confident man the author keeps telling us he is. The other characters are interesting and I liked the idea of Foxxy getting revenge for her abuse and finding a way to help other women but it often felt juvenile. Others may enjoy this story but it wasn't my cup of tea.
I received an ARC copy and am voluntarily leaving a review.
