Hussy

( 9 )

Overview

The Eskimos may have over a hundred words for snow, but that doesn't even come close to how many words the English language has for "slut"-and Lindsey has been called them all. "Hussy" is Lindsey's personal favorite, given to her by her own grandmother, who likes to pat her on the hand and whisper, "Don't worry, dear-a hussy is just a woman with the morals of a man."

But Lindsey's not ashamed of her reputation. She knows she's earned it-and she's proud of it. After all, you only...

Overview

The Eskimos may have over a hundred words for snow, but that doesn't even come close to how many words the English language has for "slut"-and Lindsey has been called them all. "Hussy" is Lindsey's personal favorite, given to her by her own grandmother, who likes to pat her on the hand and whisper, "Don't worry, dear-a hussy is just a woman with the morals of a man."

But Lindsey's not ashamed of her reputation. She knows she's earned it-and she's proud of it. After all, you only live once, right? In fact, she goes out of her way to make it known to every guy she comes in contact with, she's available for the taking-the rougher, the better.
That is until Lindsey meets Lieutenant Zachary Davis, a man who refuses to treat her like the trash she believes she really is.

But can Lindsey change her impulsive ways and learn to value herself the way the Zach does?
Warnings: This title contains graphic language and extreme sexual situations as well as a girl with a slutty attitude bigger than Texas covering a haunted past, and a sweet, hot man in uniform dead set on rescuing her from herself.

Note to Readers: This novel was previously released as "Falling Down."

    **Obviously an Adult/Over +18 book.

    This is my first Kitt book and Wow. This book deals with almost everything taboo you can think of...and in explicit detail. This is a damaged girl who has no self esteem but seems to truly like having twisted sex with just about anybody...until she meets an older boy who actually makes her "feel" something and treats her like a person, not the hussy she is.

    This book is not for the faint of heart. At least there is happiness in the end.

    free copy courtesy of author

    The Cover
    The cover is basic. It's very suggestive and bright.

    The Characters
    There are a few characters. Lindsay and Zach being the major ones.
    Other characters that add to the story are Billy, Lindsay's mum and her stepfather.
    In the beginning, we don't know much about Lindsay except that she likes sex and has a bad rep. Zach is the nice, kind guy who patiently helps Lindsay with her problems.
    I'm indifferent to the characters. I don't like them and I don't dislike them.

    The Story
    It didn't grab me. I was actually bored for like the first 30 pages of the book. I had to flip through.
    I didn't find it hot or steamy. It was annoying even. I liked the romance between Zach and Lindsay. It was sweet. The proposals were my best scenes.

    Generally
    I've heard good things about the author so I had high expectations. The book was a bit disappointing.
    It's a short read. Nothing fascinating.

    This book contains sexually explicit scenes and graphic
    language which may be considered offensive

    Recommended To
    I'll recommend this book to people who already read dark, heavy stuff or who can handle it.

    WOW...JUST WOW!!! I received a e-copy of this from NetGalley

    WOW...JUST WOW!!!



    I received a e-copy of this from NetGalley in return for an honest review and am very grateful. I have been a huge fan of Ms. Kitt's for a very long time now and when the opportunity arose for me to read/review her latest I was beyond excited. I went into this with the preconceived notion of Selena's usual writing...deeply erotic, explicit and super steamy. It did not disappoint...I was wet and squirming within a few dozen pages, but I also had this sense of disgust for the complete disregard that Lindsey has for herself. I'm a mom of a teen and I spent the better part of the first 30 pages wanting to shake her and scream at all those around her. This isn't Selena's usual book about women's sexual empowerment and freedom...no this is soo much more. This is the story of a young woman who in hopes to protect all that's left in her allows everyone to hurt her...even herself. As women, young girls we tend to turn the hurt and pain inward, hurting ourselves in some sick way of helping and easing the burden on everyone else. The fact that Selena allowed Lindsey to crawl her way back to pride, confidence and most importantly love with the help of Zack and most impressively alone was the best part in my opinion. I would love another...novella maybe to follow up on these two. I want to see their success in life and love unfold. Thank you Ms. Kitt for an amazingly surprising journey into an amazing young woman.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Hussy isn't just the name of this story but how Lindsey identifies herself. She seems like a completely sexually free spirited rebel without a cause. Everything from her walk, to her clothes screams "for a good time call," and she is completely fine with that. When she meets Lt. Zachery Davis in the midst of one of her adventures, he seems like another possible addition to the roister. She just is unsure about what he see when he looks at her.

    I have never read this author before, but knew she is a very popular erotica author. I was expecting a quick smut fest, which I got. I actually liked that this book featured an unrepentantly promiscuous heroine. I am not feminist by any means, but recognize that Lindsey marks a sharp contrast to the innocent untouched ingénues in most of my reads lately. It was a great surprise that the hero Zach was black. I actively search for interracial romances, but don't find a lot that feature white woman/black man pairing that doesn’t feel overly fetishized. What made this book special was the great exploration into the how "bad girls" sometimes get that way. This is erotica that is thought provoking and feels emotionally true.

    First let me say that I understand the concept of the book. I get what the author was trying to do, but inspite of the warning of this girl being basically the biggest whore ever, I was so disgusted with this book. If I could give it zero stars I would, for three reasons (1) the story was rushed, wow she basically changed overnight (2) there was no closure with her mom, with the court case, or with Brian or Ralph (3) it was very unrealistic - I realize that this is a fiction book, but a book should be able to have a sense of reality and everything just seemed unrealistic. I'm sorry but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

    This book was raw and emotionally all absorbing to read. Raw because of the subject matter it deals with. Emotionally all absorbing because the author's writing brings you into the story and you relate to our main character completely.

    Lindsey is rebelling to the abuse she suffered when she was twelve. As it typically happens, the victim feels dirty, promiscuous, tail spinning into self-punishment. Her behavior is obvious to anyone who would care to stop for a moment and face the facts. Unfortunately, adults who would rather not “see” the truth surround Lindsey.

    My only disappointment in this story was how the educational system and the teachers, principal, etc. were so blind to Lindsey's problems. I realize in a perfect world they should have been the ones to identify the issue not exacerbate it. Perhaps the news during recent years of educators abusing children is what the author is trying to bring to our attention. I still hope that the predominance of good educators will outweigh this recent trend and the children will continue to be safe and looked after.

    The romance with Zach is uplifting and healing. His love for Lindsey grows slowly in strength and healing quality. This is Lindsey's salvation. Zach is able to show Lindsey what true love looks and feels like. He is her anchor and safe haven.

    This book is not for the faint of heart. It is erotica but with a double-edged blade. I was deeply moved and absorbed in this story. Great writing!
