    Had me holding my breath!

    Enter Silvio Brianza, the handsome Sicilian billionaire who literally comes to the rescue of the lovely Jessie, a woman from his "dark" past. However, this beautiful and talented singer didn't want to be rescued! Bought: Destitute Yet Defiant" by Sarah Morgan literally had me holding my breath.-----

    Bought: Destitute Yet Defiant was a non-stop read with lots of heated passion and excitement. They had a past but had not seen each other for three years. Jessie blamed Silvio for her brother's death and now she was in trouble. There were men after her who wanted to hurt and kill her. Since her brother's death, she had been working three jobs, singing in a seedy nightclub in London and living, well let's just say barley living. While reading the first chapters and how Jessie and Silvio had once had secret feelings and now he's come to save and rescue her had me sitting on the edge of my seat. One learns that Silvio and Johnny were friends and Jessie was ten years younger. Ever since she turned around sixteen, they both had feelings for each other but never acted on them. They both grew up on the streets and their childhood; well let's just say not too many happy memories. Now they are both faced with getting Jessie safe which means Silvio takes her to his penthouse apartment.-----

    Jessie is probably one of the strongest and fabulous heroines I've read. She's strong in that she's been working to pay off her brother's drug debts; she's a real fighter and determined to survive. When Silvio rides to the rescue, he pampers her, buys her designer gowns, pays off her brother's debts, takes her to Sicily to live on his yacht and makes arrangements for her to sing and launch a career. However, none of that matters, only Silvio in the end matters. She has no self confidence where he or his socialite friends are concerned. Life for her is simple and straight forward and to be loved by only him.-----

    Silvio was a marvelous Italian alpha who could have led a life of crime but chose to work hard and become a success. He was so much of a success he had a yacht, homes and fancy cars all over the world and dated famous models and actresses. However, he never forgot those who were in trouble. In fact one will learn while reading this beautifully written love story, he gives those wanted to leave the crime world a second chance and goes so far as to employ them. And he wants the same for Jessie, wants her to become a successful singer and wants to build up her confidence, so he makes it possible for her to sing at a wedding and she's an immediate success and offered a career in North America. Will this destroy them with no second chance at love? Trust me, you'll want this book on your shelf.-----

    As most of us have learned though our experiences in life, clothes, hair and make-up, wealth don't make the person, it's what's underneath, it's what's inside us, it's what drives us to become a better person and Bought: Destitute Yet Defiant brings that home! -----
