Publisher's Summary

What’s a girl to do when she’s going broke? 

Sarai Emery lost her job as a radio disc jockey when a heated breakup with her wealthy drug dealer boyfriend was accidentally broadcast live. With the sudden loss of income, she goes from living it up to giving it up for cash when she meets a stranger who promises her a steady income working for a high-society escort service. With thoughts of dodging the repo-man, past due bills, an impending eviction, and a bill from the nursing home that cares for her Alzheimer’s-afflicted father fresh on her mind, Sarai feels she has no choice but to plunge into a world where the line that separates sex and money is blurred beyond recognition. When she meets the man of her dreams, will she come clean about how she’s been paying her bills, or will her low-down, dirty secrets rise to the top on their own?

Never say what you wouldn't do for a Klondike Bar!

I love how this book tells the truth what some men and women choose to do when their bills are due. I would just say don’t be so quick to judge. You or me could find ourselves in this very predicament. Sarai really did not want to put herself in that situation, but After much protest, she allowed it to happen. She felt like she had the world on her shoulders. Sarai’s twin was dying of A-I-D-S”. I could really appreciate this book because she was paying her own bills instead of looking for handouts. I like how Sarai got back at Roland, but did not expect him to mail those pictures to the house. I was overjoyed when Tremel got his record deal. I feel this is a phenomenal book and I approve this book for reading.

THIS BOOK

IN THE BEGINNING I WASN'T SURE IF I WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET INTO IT, AS I MADE MYSELF LISTEN ON IT ENDED UP GETTING MY ATTENTION AND ENDED UP BEING A GOOD STORY. I DIDN'T CARE FOR THE ENDING AT ALL. I UNDERSTOOD THAT SHE GOT HER PAYBACK FOR WHAT SHE HAD DONE TO OTHERS BUT AT THE SAME TIME SHE WAS ONLY TRYING TO SURVIVE HERSELF. BEING THAT SHE GOT HER HEART BACK TO A STEADY BEAT WAS THE BEST PART OF THIS BOOK. AND TO REMIND PEOPLE NOT TO JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER. WISHING THAT IT WOULD HAVE ENDED DIFFERENTLY OR THAT SHE WAS REVIVED AND THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HELD FOR THEM AS A UNIT. OH WELL!

A Roller coaster

This book had me on a roller coaster of emotions. Sarai got on my nerves A LOT and sometimes I didn't want things to work out for her, while other times, I was hoping for the best. There was so much going on that I knew something was going to go left eventually with all of the dirt she was doing. I guess I'll have to get the sequel to find out the rest.
