I get paid to photograph intimate moments in other peoples’ lives—specifically one man. During the day, I watch while he’s working, and every night I watch him while he’s f***ing. It started as a job but quickly turned into an obsession.
His name is Nikolas Gallo.
I spent years in front of the camera before I escaped. Now I’m behind it and in control of what my shutter captures. The moment I viewed Niko in the lens of my camera I found the escape I’d been searching for. I finally felt connected - whole.
There are two types of celebrity photographers; those that wait for their victim to venture into public to get their pay day; always allowing some small semblance of privacy. Then there are those lurking in the shadows, steadily invading private lives, hunting and searching for the most intimate of shots; that’s what I have become.
My name is Brook Beckham and I found my inner peeping Tom.
Recommended for 18 and above.

No background info on the characters, I get it, it's a prequel but the intent should be to draw readers in, and that doesn't happen with this book. We're giving the impression that Niko has feelings for Brook, yet he practically screws her on the dance floor in front of dozens of people, who does that to someone they care about? And her allowing that to happen makes me as a reader lose total respect for her and puts her into the slutty bimbo category.
