I really enjoyed this book. The storyline was great, the characters are great and the plot developed at a good pace.

Lana was brilliant. I loved how she was willing to do anything for her mum. She was a little naive at times, especially when she wasn’t quite seeing how much she actually meant to Blake.

Blake was a brilliant character. He may have purchased Lana, but he actually saved her from a far worse situation. I loved how they grew to know one another and I loved the spark between them. I like his dominating nature, and the way he treated her, but he didn’t exactly share his true feelings clearly.

I feel like there is more to his family than he’s letting on. The storyline was good and the end shook things up a bit. I think Lana made the wrong decision, but I can also see why she made it. Blakes actions deserved more than being left without a word.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the next one. I would definitely recommend this book.

My rating: 5/5*
