“I need a reason to exist.”

Beautiful, intelligent, independent, strong-willed, wealthy—Lilith Fontenot seems by all appearances, to have it all. But that’s not how the highest paid prostitute in New Orleans sees herself.

A stain on society. A scourge. A waste. Outsider. Prisoner…

Any idyllic dream of the normal life she may have once imagined, Lilith buried long ago. Her only plan now is survival.

But mob boss Nico Santelli and community center owner Soti Christos have not given up on Lilith. Each has his own very specific, very opposing, plans for her, and neither will rest until it becomes a reality.

WHORE is a singularly bracing take on an ancient tale of tireless love, betrayal, and the possibility of redemption.

 

I take a sudden deep breath and my breasts brush against his chest. The contact surprises us both. I do it again, intentionally this time, trying to gain control in the only way I know how. His neck flushes and he takes a step back. I enjoy the rush it gives me, knowing that I affect him too.
“Hey, would you like to come around the corner with me to—”
I swallow my surprise and shake my head, holding my hand up before he says anything else.
“Please,” he says louder.
“What’s your name?”
“I am Sotirios … Soti.”
“Soti, what makes you think you know anything about me?”
He tries to make eye contact, but I focus on a spot just past his left ear.
“I just want to help you…” His words trail off.
The wind blows my hair forward, a sheet of black coming between us until I smooth the long strands down on either side. I gaze down the street and see a blurry little girl with black hair down to her waist in middle school, standing shy and hopeful in front of a group of girls.
“We know what you are,” they said. They hurled spit and names on her and she stood there, taking it, until the teacher came and helped her.
Help only got me so far.
“You listen to me, okay?” I say so softly he leans in to hear me. “I was born for this.”
When my eyes finally land on his again, I know his face will haunt me forever. He looks as bleak as I feel.
I clear my throat. “Now, if you’ll excuse us.”
With that, I loop my hand through the arm of my next income source, calculating how I can get the most money out of him for the least amount of time. It takes every ounce of willpower I own to not look Soti’s way one more time. Once we round the corner and I know he’s out of sight, all the adrenaline leaves my body, and I’m actually glad to have someone to hold onto.
I avoid my reflection as we walk back to the house. I don’t want to know what the rest of the world sees when they look at me.

 

 

 

REVIEW:

~ 5++ Unconditional Love Stars ~

WOW!!! This book has left me speechless!!! I really don’t even know how to put into words how much I loved this story. Nothing I say really will do this book justice.

I didn’t know what to expect when I decided to read Whore by Willow Aster. This is the first book I have read by this author, but I have wanted to read her work so many times, and this just happened to fit into my schedule. The blurb is what drew me into wanting to read this book.

This book was so far past my expectations of this storyline. The twist and turns of this story will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is a storyline I can’t talk in detail about because I don’t want to spoil anything for other readers. Just know this book will suck you in right from the beginning. I had a hard time putting this book down once I started it. I would have finished this in one sitting had life not gotten in the way…LOL

This is a book that I know will live on in my mind for some time. These characters were amazing and the storyline is unlike anything I have read lately. This is a story that is told in Dual POV and is a story about redemption and unconditional love. This story will have your heart racing, your minding running and the tears flowing, but in the end you will end with a huge smile on your face. This book truly blew me away and I look forward to reading other books by Willow Aster.

I know this review is short and vague, but I don’t want to ruin anything. I am just going to say this…. READ THIS BOOK!!!! I don’t think you’ll be sorry. This is definitely making my Best of 2017 List!!!
