I have to open this review with how amazed I am with the works of all these first time authors that I have been reading lately. Evie rates up there with the seasoned pros! This book was believable, well written, excellently edited and a great storyline and the title could not be more perfect. I am looking forward to reading the next books in this series.
This story is about human trafficking and how it happens right under our noses without us even realizing it. The book starts out with Lilly and Sasha two sisters from Australia who have recently lost both their parents. They have a pretty large farm that they have inherited from their parents. They take a break to travel and see some places they have always wanted to see, first stop New York. On their first day there they go out to check it out and have a bite to eat and some drinks. When they leave they are kidnapped and taken by car then by plane to where they do not know. When they arrive at the destination they are torn apart and one is sent to one place and the other somewhere else. Lily was basically hand picked to become a collection piece by the man that runs the trafficking ring his name is Marcos. He sister Sasha was only taken because they were together so she ends up being a slave. The slaves do all the work, cleaning, preparing meals, gardening and waiting on the collection pieces until they are sold off. The collection pieces belong to Marco and are treated well given nice things to wear good food to eat, but this comes with a price. They are Marco’s collection and are put on display once a month at a party and men are there to bid on them. The highest bidder gets the collection piece for their sexual pleasers to do what they want as long as they do not damage the goods. Each collection piece has a private guard, Lilly’s guard is Jake. They become pretty close but there is just something secretive about Jake that has you guessing all the way through the book. He has some kind of mission to complete and he is not letting anything get in his way. He makes you believe that it is a position working right under Marco, but some of his actions make you stop and rethink that possibility. He is very mysterious but oh so sexy and caring of Lilly and Sasha.
I have a hard time with some reviews where there is so much I want to say but cant because I will give away the story and then you will not want to read the book lol! I hope that this was enough of a tease to make you want to read this one, I promise you will not be disappointed. Evie did such an amazing job that I wish I could give more than five stars, but they have not opened the rating for anything higher yet. So I will have to settle for 5 of the shiniest gold stars for this book! Thank you Evie, I am so looking forward to reading more from you in the future!
