Being born into slavery, I never thought my owner, my very mother, would sell me. And she didn’t.
I was tormented, struggling to come to terms with my new life then he narrowed it down to two things.
The man confused me at every turn with his unexpected and unattainable desires.
If only he’d speak to me.
If only he’d tell me how to avoid upsetting him.
If only I could please him.

My heart just went out to Gia in this story. This is a good read if you like dark and this, to me, was very dark and some what twisted. I dont read very many of these kinds of stories but every once in a while I am glad that I took a chance and gave it a read.
This book has slavery, rap, violence, and more. It is a dark story and if you have a problem reading about those types of things then this book isn’t for you. I liked this book. Gia was raised in a horrible way. Her mother is a madam and even though Gia is her daughter she is treated just like the girl she sells. Gia never though her mother would sell her as she has turned down other offer for her. Matteo went to find a good slave girl who could give him a child and get his dad off his back. None of the girls he saw were what he wanted then he was shown Gia and wanted her immediately. However Gia wasn’t trained like he thought she was. She knew some things but not everything. What Matteo didn’t expect was to develop real feeling for Gia. Gia has only ever known this type of life. She wasn’t prepared for how bad things could get though. She learns there are all different types of pain. While this book is dark there is a HEA at the end. I like books like this because life isn’t all sunshine and roses for everyone. These types of things happen. While they aren’t nice they are happening. Matteo must decide if he is going to continue to do what makes his father happy or what makes him happy. I felt bad for Gia because she spends most of the book confused and trying to figure out what she did to displease Matteo. Matteo is stuck between his feeling for Gia and what is expected of him. Matteo is the son of a mafia boss and things are done a little differently in his world. He feels so bad that because of him all these things are happening to Gia. He keeps hurting her and doesn’t want to keep doing it. Will he be able to be with her and not hurt her in some way? This book drew me in and I read it in a couple of hours. It was wonderfully written and the characters are great. This is the first book I have read by Rachel Orman. I look forward to reading other books by her in the future. I was given this book in return for an honest review.
