Overview

Hooker by J. L. Perry

One night of passion with a sinfully hot stranger will change everything. By the author of the #1 bestseller BASTARD, J. L. Perry.

Jade's young life was tough. After her mother died during childbirth and her father could no longer look after her, she was placed in foster care where she stayed for the next ten years. She grew up feeling unloved and unwanted as she was passed around from one screwed up home to the next.

Things began to look up for her when she was adopted by a wealthy socialite at the age of eleven. Sometimes, though, things aren't always what they seem. Jade didn't know it at the time, but her new adoptive mother had big plans for her . . .

Brock grew up privileged. He had everything going for him. Money, looks, charm, success and an endless array of beautiful women. He wasn't interested in commitment. To him women were easy. They practically threw themselves at his feet. All they wanted was to do something nobody had ever managed before. Snare the hot, rich bachelor.

Then he met Jade. She was like a breath of fresh air. A challenge. Nothing like the women he was used to. Their one night together ignited something within him. A burning desire to own her, possess her, but Jade had other plans. Nobody says no to Brock Weston, nobody.

But, when fate brings them together again, will he get what he wants? Or will Jade's secrets crush him, and destroy any chance they have of being together?

This was a new author to me and I have to say I have no idea why. This is one of those books that I did not want to put down. I was riveted from the first to the last page. Hooker is told in dual points of view from Brock and Jade and I think this really works well. Brock comes from a privileged background and is the head of his family’s company. They say money can’t always buy happiness and this is true in Brock’s case. A strained relationship with his mother, loathing his father, his brother is the only family that Brock wants to have anything to do with. Jade is a product of the foster care system gone terribly wrong, she has been forced into the life of a high class Hooker by her adopted mother M; she hates her life and the only bright spots in it are Rupert, her driver who has become a friend. The only break she gets from her regime is when she is allowed to go on holiday a couple of times a year to either New York or Paris. Even then M controls as much of that as she possible can. After buying a Snickers bar, she bumps into Brock at the airport and they are both instantly attracted to each other. Despite her attraction Jade knows nothing can come of it, after all she has another 2 years left on her contract with M and she knows what happens when someone tries to defy her. When fate ensures these two meet again in New York, what Jade doesn’t count on is Brock’s determination to keep seeing her. This book was such a roller-coaster of emotions, and at times I wanted to cry. Both Brock and Jade are very lonely in their own ways and I cheered so much when they got together. Brock’s ability to see past the “Hooker” and see the real Jade was simply beautiful. Jade has held her head up and dealt with the life she has been given. She has dreams and Brock wants to ensure that her dreams come true but first she has to escape the employment of her Madam. Never have I disliked a character in a book more. I was absolutely thrilled when justice was finally served to M. J.L Perry has written a beautiful and romantic, if at times heart stopping book about acceptance and love and I highly recommend to anyone you take the time and read this Australian author. I was so invested with this book that I truly hope that J.L. Perry considers writing a follow up book.

Hooker by J.L. Perry is a deep and emotional read that delves into the difficult story of Jade and her terrible life so far and of Brock, the enigmatic businessman who becomes addicted to everything that Jade is. Jade has been through it all and is finally adopted by someone she thinks will be her savior. At the age of eleven she soon learns that she is out of the frying pan and into the fire. M is grooming her to be a hooker and once she turns eighteen, she locks Jade into a contract that will force her to allow others to user her for money. Brock is a successful businessman. He has taken over his fathers security company and has it headed into a more profitable and successful direction much to his fathers dismay. He also is a serial ladies-man. He never misleads the women, they all know he isn't out for a relationship of ANY sort, but he definitely isn't settling down any time soon, if ever. When a run-in at an airport store puts Jad and Brock in each other's sights, all bets are off and anyone who has it out for them better watch themselves. Emotional, deep, and involved, this story will take you from Jade's early years through to the happy ever after and it is such a great journey. The characters have depth and passion and the story is steadily paced.

Jade had a rough childhood, was adopted by a wealthy woman and was given almost all that money could buy. She was not given love, affection or freedom. Brock was born into wealth, was a chick-magnet and ran a multi-million-dollar business. He never got the love and respect from his father that he desired. Jade and Brock meet in an airport, spend a bit of time together in New York and then Jade disappears. They meet again and fireworks begin to occur in more ways than one. The characters were well developed. The story was complete with no cliff hangers or unexplained issues. Brock and Jade were gorgeous on the outside and good people on the inside. They had issues to contend with individually and together and managed to do so without losing themselves. The book is told in first person alternating between the viewpoints of Brock and Jade (not my favorite story telling style). Brock and Jade provide an interesting story and I hoped as I read that they would get and enjoy their happily ever after. I have to confess that I am not sure how Jade could experience instant attraction to Brock coming from the background she had. This is my first book by Ms Perry and I enjoyed it. It made me wonder if predators like “M” are in the system and if so how they can be eradicated. There was a lot going on in the story but it was all tied together well and the supporting characters were a nice addition. Thank you to NetGalley and Hachette Australia for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
