***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Casey Williams and her family are poor. Her parents work non-stop and so does she, just so they can keep the trailer roof from leaking.
They’re getting by fine enough when the headaches start. Then there’s the nosebleeds. And the inevitable doctor’s bills.
Fortunately for Casey, there’s MyTrueMatch.com: an exclusive, quick, and almost easy way to pay it all back before her parents even have to know.
All she has to do is give a man she’s never met whatever he wants from her body.
Inside or out.
This was a very interesting story. It was fairly obvious that Casey has some sort of (possibly) terminal illness from the beginning of the book. What isn’t immediately obvious is the type of site MyTrueMatch is. It seems to be a dating site, but it isn’t exactly what it seems. The idea of this is something I haven’t encountered before, which I love! It is nice to come across a unique story, that doesn’t follow the normal paranormal rules. I will stop there, because I don’t want to give away anything about the plot that would spoil the story.
The relationship between Casey and Jonah is interesting. At first it seems weird. Generally age doesn’t bother me, but once we learn a bit about Jonah’s past, it is almost as if he is treating Casey like a daughter. Then he seems to bounce back and forth between caring father and somewhat controlling Edward Cullen (please note I am NOT comparing this to Twilight, they are NOT even remotely similar – just the male character and his need to control all things).
The ONLY reason this book is a 4-star instead of a 5-star is because it could easily be a full-length novel with more information about what happens when the story ends. There is a very obvious outcome, and I understand the author leaving it so open-ended. But this novella has the potential to be a very good, very impact-ful (don’t judge, I’m using it) novel.
I am a new Nikki Rae fan, and fully plan to read her other books this New Year! ((P.S. You have effing awesome hair ;) ))
