I got the free Kindle version, and it was not complete. There were three blocks of writing and a note saying that the second would be incorporated into the whole. I hope that this was merely a case of the wrong version being posted, as it was most annoying not to have the complete story, and not acceptable practice. The most annoying thing is that the story has potential, which is why it got the second star.
Lonely and scarred, believing no one wants his disfigured looks Jackson settles for finding a mistress to warm his bed and help him on the Farm. He goes looking and finds Sophie who has her own reasons for dragging her feet.
Highly improbable scenario but a quick light read.
