The Eskimos may have over a hundred words for snow, but that doesn’t even come close to how many words the English language has for “slut”—and Lindsey has been called them all. “Hussy” is Lindsey’s personal favorite, given to her by her own grandmother, who likes to pat her on the hand and whisper, “Don’t worry, dear—a hussy is just a woman with the morals of a man.”

But Lindsey’s not ashamed of her reputation. She knows she’s earned it—and she’s proud of it. After all, you only live once, right? In fact, she goes out of her way to make it known to every guy she comes in contact with, she’s available for the taking—the rougher, the better.

That is until Lindsey meets Lieutenant Zachary Davis, a man who refuses to treat her like the trash she believes she really is.

But can Lindsey change her impulsive ways and learn to value herself the way the Zach does?

Warnings: This title contains graphic language and extreme sexual situations as well as a girl with a slutty attitude bigger than Texas covering a haunted past, and a sweet, hot man in uniform dead set on rescuing her from herself.

This book is raw and emotionally all absorbing to read. It is disturbingly raw because of the subject matter it deals with–there is rape in this book. It is emotionally absorbing because the author’s writing brings the reader into the story and you relate to the main character completely. Be forewarned, this book deals with extreme promiscuity, non-consensual sex, and multiple partners. The subject matter will be difficult for some readers but the writing style of the author is impeccable and full of emotion.

Lindsey is rebelling to the abuse she suffered when she was twelve. As it typically happens, the victim feels dirty, tail spinning into self-punishment. Her behavior is obvious to anyone who would care to stop for a moment and face the facts. Unfortunately, adults who would rather not “see” the truth surround Lindsey and ignore the real reason for her promiscuity.

The romance with Zach is uplifting and healing. His love for Lindsey grows slowly in strength and healing quality. This is Lindsey’s salvation. Zach is able to show Lindsey what true love looks and feels like. He is her anchor and safe haven. This relationship is multi-racial and frowned upon by some. Zach is such an upright human being that you soon forget the multi-racial aspects of their relationship and grow to admire him for his integrity and devotion to Lindsey.

My only disappointment in this story was how the educational system and the teachers, principal, etc. were so blind to Lindsey’s problems. I realize that in a perfect world they should have been the ones to identify the issue, not exacerbate it. Perhaps the news during recent years of educators abusing children is what the author is trying to bring to our attention. I still hope that the predominance of good educators will outweigh this recent trend and the children will continue to be safe and looked after.

This book is not for the faint of heart. It is raw romance novel but with a double-edged blade. I was deeply moved and absorbed in this story. Great writing!
