For fans of spine-chilling Cape Fear? Yes.
When tragedy affects his life, an unconvicted, "politically-shielded" professional killer blames and hunts a young woman. He pursues sweet revenge. Her beloved adoptive family circle the wagons around her. This time, for him, it's more than a job. It's a welcomed war. Can the family survive? How?
In Prosperity, Texas, charm begins at the county line, a large mint green sign reads: "Wholesome Living in a Storybook setting". A town park - resplendent with yellow, pink and red roses, a white gazebo, a stout limestone footbridge, a pond flanked by Weeping Cherry trees and nesting Mallard ducks - locks-in the message.
Yet, beneath the idyllic sugar-coated appearance, plenty of problems plague Prosperity - political corruption, an influx of illegal drugs, road rage, theft, prostitution and pornography. Sheriff Gordon has put his stamp on Prosperity - reaping huge profits in the process. His go-to-enforcer, Bruce, a cocaine-addicted, misogynistic, hit man maintains law, order and iron-fisted justice as per Gordon's aggressive agenda.
Camille, a gorgeous, lonely, young woman has caught the unwavering eye and attention of Gordon's son, Grant. Handsome, wealthy, powerful, sadistic Grant and naive Camille become a couple in spite of Gordon's fury. Camille has also enchanted Ben, Bruce's only son, and Grant's best friend.
Crippled by circumstances - trafficking, adolescence, immaturity, a bad romance, a lack of education and ambition, how can she prevail?
Can this nightmare become anymore hellish? Yes.
For mature audiences only. DLSV - sex trafficking fiction inspired by a true story.
Wow! This was one heck of a read!
This book intrigued me especially after seeing the Fifty Shades movie(s). Plenty was the perfect pick for a long flight. I don’t even remember taking off! This book was entertaining, kept me guessing, and convinced me that Fifty Shades fell short in several ways. Reading Plenty, a story about strong empowered women was way more meaningful, suspenseful and enduring. It did not disappoint at all. On a deeper level, it's the optimal antithesis to Fifty because it makes me consider the unvarnished version of sadism, domination and real world ramifications for girls and women inside the sex slave industry.
