Publisher's Summary

Quinn

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 21, 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.

Andrew

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.

EMOTIONAL, ENDEARING & REFRESHINGLY DIFFERENT

Wow.. this may have been my first Brenda Rothert book but it certainly won't be my last because she very quickly hooked me all the way in with her riveting story about twenty-one year old Quinn and her sixteen year old sister Bethy. They had fled their lives four years earlier and have been surviving on the streets, in the tunnels and in the hidden spaces of NYC ever since - trawling through dumpsters in search of morsels of food. And for two years they've had the support/friendship/guidance of Bear a thirty+ year old homeless man. Quinn is strong and she's determined to keep Bethy safe, protect her and provide for her sister no matter what.. but Bethy's getting sick. So, when a stranger offers Quinn $500 and will provide shelter and warmth for just one night, Quinn simply can't refuse.. even if it means temporarily splitting up with her sister and Bear.. even if it means selling her body.. and even if it means losing her virginity.

Successful businessman Andrew Wentworth has had his share of heartache and bad memories which has left him jaded with very high walls - so now he gets his assistant to find willing women all too ready to spend one hot night with the handsome sexy alpha twenty-eight year old in exchange for money. And, when Andrew is introduced to the beautiful blond his assistant has 'acquired' for the night, he thinks she's going to be just as greedy, just as flirtatious and just as manipulative as all his other hook-ups. But Andrew soon realizes that Quinn is NOTHING like the other women.. she is innocent, mysterious, strong-willed, caring, shy and totally uninterested in his money.. and him. Andrew instantly becomes charmed by Quinn's refreshing personality and makes her another proposition.. one that will eventually lead them on the path to their HEA. However, both of them are keeping secrets.. and bit by bit all is revealed as the plot, their secrets and their lives start to unfold and unravel.

What a wonderful dual POV slow-building love story this was between survivors of very different traumas who lowered their defences and gave up their secrets for love.. and fought their way to a better life. It picks up its pace towards the end as the focus changes from their budding building relationship - to the secrets that are keeping them apart and this injects twists, surprises and a bit of suspense too. There's dangerous drama and some angst along the way and, although they can't yet trust each other to share their secrets, these two loveable protective nurturing characters are very tender, compassionate, understanding and supportive of one another's feelings. Slowly Andrew shows Quinn how much he cares, what lengths he will go to to protect her and he teaches Quinn about passion and sexual desire too. Their journey brings them character growth, sexy times, testing times and happy times.. but, as Andrew and Quinn get closer and closer, Bethy Bear and the very real threat they ran away from, is never far from Quinn's thoughts. And, before their story can end, there will be tense times, twists and turbulence.

Worth a credit? Absolutely 100% yes.. a well-written meshing of two very different worlds, the emotional uniting of two very different characters and they are brought together by very different needs. However, at the end of their bitter-sweet struggles, what was left was a deep unwaivering soul-soul forever love. Ms Rothert's well-placed words formed wonderfully vivid and detailed scenes.. and the good, the bad, the shocking and the ugly were all brought to life by the talented team of narrators who each had a part in turning this awesome book into a 5* listen.

Riveting and Suspenseful!

I discovered Brenda Rothert through Audible’s “Romance Package.” This is a 2-2 winner - Come Closer was the first book I read. Her characters are likable and the storyline grabbed my attention and held it throughout the book, from beginning to end. Dual narration by Lee Smith and Kristen Leigh turns this book into a good performance. Definitely credit-worthy!

Ridiculous climax

I have to admit that this was a little disappointing. The story had potential and I was looking forward to finding out what had happened to make the sisters run. When the truth came to light, it was so anti-climatic it was ridiculous. Not to mention the guy who stayed with them while they were on the street - it seemed like the writer wanted to put the hero and heroin together so she twisted the friend to make readers hate him. All in all, the story was disappointing.

Very sweet

This was a sweet love story with a little but of suspense included so it kept you a little on your toes but not a lot of violence.

A tale of love and danger

It’s been awhile since I’ve been so engrossed in a story of love, drama, and danger. The characters and dialogue are believable. While it was good, it wasn’t perfect. There are several times when you want to give Quinn, the main character, a sharp rap on the top of her head for being stubbornly stupid and several times where the author missed the boat by not fleshing out another character. It was like throwing a rock in pond and not seeing any ripples. These flaws are not so very noticeable in a better than average story. I’m going to read another of Brenda Rothert’s novels and hope it’s as least as good.

Preview doesn’t do it justice !

I needed new books to listen to and this popped up.
The preview clip part. Sound interesting enough but may be I wanna read it maybe I’ll listen see if I like it. But woah I I starred to listen narrators hooked men and the story just kinda started its predictable and suspenseful. At same time. I would love to read more about bethys side or story.
