Summary

When you’ve lost everything, you’ll do anything to survive.
Saskia Frost’s world is blown apart when her dad dies. Without any family, she’s on her own now and up to her eyeballs in her father’s debts. He owed a lot of money to some very dangerous men – Joshua and Vincent Harper. Before long, aspiring ballerina Saskia finds herself lap-dancing in a London club to survive. A club run by the infamous Harper brothers. Saskia is now their property and they’re going to make her pay every penny back.

Teenager Lena Cona has fled a cruel and controlling marriage. She arrives in England with her newborn daughter, desperately relying on strangers for help. But she soon learns that not everyone can be trusted as she finds herself caught in the clutches of Colin Jefferies, a twisted individual obsessed by his own sinister secrets. As the sickening truth is revealed, Lena is forced to fight for her life - and her baby’s.

When their worlds collide, Lena and Saskia form an unlikely friendship. But with the terrifying Harper brothers on their tail, as well as Lena’s vengeful and violent husband, can they escape with their lives?

Intense and a little disturbing

A very well written book that is quite harrowing in places and definitely deserves the "Not for the faint-hearted" warning that is apparently in the ebook edition but missing in the audiobook edition. It's also not for those who have an issue with swearing as there's plenty of it in the book but considering the setting it's also what you'd expect in this day and age.

Both Lena's & Saskia's storyline are realistic and believable and a little disturbing. Colin's storyline seemed a bit unnecessary to me, taking the story into a horror theme which was less believable but that's just my opinion and it did help tie up the outcome.

An enjoyable listen with good narration. I'll look out for more from this author.

I received a free copy of this book at my request and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
