1 star.. it sounds like a terrible review to give. I think this book if it had been longer would have easily placed this a 3 star I can tell something is building and it would totally capture my attention. the book ends and its really not a cliff hanger.. you really just don't care about any of the characters.. it just falls flat.

Great story with character development

I like how Lacey is a down to earth, simple woman. She likes a manly man. A man who can assert himself. I like how when she was waiting for Ric she was thinking about having date at McDonald's with the maitre d'.

I love the character development in this story. You get the background of who Lacey never wanted to be. Knowing that her mother was a prostitute and that she was forced to do things that she didn't want to do you get to see the struggle going on in

A young lady attempting to escape her past has landed a job at a prestigious magazine in New York City. She has left behind a mother who was a prostitute and who tried to save her by getting her to move out of where they lived and start on her on at an early age. Before that could occur she had already been turned out by a pimp at an early age. With her mother’s death there was nothing that held her there so she fled to NYC. Here she is befriended by an editor of the magazine and she lands a job ...more

I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. Another great beginning to a great story by Abby Weeks. Lacey is a journalist, she is trying to not turn out like her mom. Her mom was a whore and while they were living in a motel, Lacey saw more than any child should see. When she turned 16, her mom moved her into an apartment and got her a job as a waitress and that was the last time she saw her mom until her funeral. She did not want Lacey to be like her. Now ...more

Cliffhanger series.
This is the first book I've read from this author and I don't think I will be reading anymore. I will not be reading the rest of this serial series. The writing was just ok. The story sounded good but it fell short. I really couldn't get into the character she was to weak and I didn't feel that sorry for her. she was dwelling in the past to much and how could she let Ric do what he did to her?

Overall I never got hooked on this story. Only reason I finished this book was fo

Not what I usually read so I thought it might be fun to try something different. This writer has you feeling sorry for Lacey and her lack of self confidence. Which makes Abby Weeks a good writer. What a bad childhood Lacey has overcome and now her boss has thrown her into the very thing she was trying to get away from. This story has some very disturbing scenes. I feel like these things really do go on but we just don't hear about them. Disappointed the book ended so soon. I must read the next ...more

After picking up a free copy on Amazon, I didn't really know what to expect. It is kind of along the lines of 50 Shades of Grey stories that are pretty abundant around now, but it was a decent fast read. The main character is likable and the story-line is interesting. The rest of the series would be interesting to read if only for the story-line of this underground "Club" and who are involved in it and why.

Personally, I believe this book is bad in sooo many levels.

What is up with her and Ric? You just could not do that >:( Where is your digniiittyyy??

Also, with the job. I just don't get it. Why do you have to sacrifice yourself just for the assignment? Reporters may go undercover and all that but that was just too much. And that thing with the dog... too disgusting that I can't even mention it here. Also, I do not want to spoil it to others :p lol

Intriguing Read

The Assignment - A Call Girl's Fantasy, Book One in a trilogy got off to a bit of a sluggish start, but ended in a doozie of a cliffhanger.
Lacey is a bit of a sad creature who is struggling to figure out who she is and doubts her self-worth. Her assignment through the magazine she reports for is quite intriguing, unnerving and potentially dangerous. I am anxious to get book two so I can see where this adventure takes her.

Don't even bother with this one

Don't even bother with this one

if you like cheap sex novels this is for you, I personally don't and thought this book was disgusting from the first few pages. Plus being short, which maybe these type of books are. The last chapter only begins the next sexual setting so I suppose one needs to purchase the next book, and so on. I will stick with my murder mysteries.

A journalist with a rocky childhood is given the opportunity to join an escort service that caters to a club full of the most rich and powerful people in the hopes of discovering the biggest story of her life.
This book is merely setting the scene and if you want to read more you have to buy the rest in the series. Not a fan of writers doing it this way. It didn't blow me away so I'm unlikely to pay for the rest of the set.

Wow! Abby Weeks create has a way with words. This erotic fiction is not for the faint of heart. I personally thought this book had a great story line and was only disappointed by the abrupt ending which certainly left me wanted to read "the rest of the story". Abby Weeks is a talented writer and I would recommend her for adult minds only!

Review of The Assignment 1

The book started out ok enough but the turn it took was a complete surprise to me. It was a bit too dark for me even though it left me curious as to what will happen to lacey in dealing with her pass. am curious to know how she dealt with that sort of humiliation and how she overcame it.

A well written story of a young woman who has worked her way from an abusive childhood to a respected journalist. She is faced with writing a story by going undercover that could bring her great acclaim or throw her back into the darkness of her past.
This is the first of a series of four books. I look forward to reading the next book of the series.

Once again, Abby Weeks has given us a very interesting story like no one else can. An exhilarating, easy read with a couple scenes that make you say "WTF???" The first part of the book was a little slow for me, but it picked up fast and now I want more!

In this part of this series, you get to see the start of Lacey's journey for a mind-blowing story for her magazine. There is a minor cliff-hanger at the end, but it's just giving you a reason to see what happens next.....

4 Stars, good read, interesting storyline. Shame it's such a short book and part of a series. written well, didn't notice any mistakes which makes a change. I liked the main Character, storyline and I have already purchased book 2 as I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.

While understanding the allure of sexual power can not get past the degradation Lacey allows done to herself, not wanting to read further installments even though the story was well executed it is just not something wish to pursue.

Was disappointed that book one ended can't wait to continue reading this! Lacey has shown such conflicting emotions so far and you get pulled into what the big story is going to be. Can't wait for the next book

This was a nice quick read. To know what goes through someone's mind when they are put that predicament is interesting. The fact that men can be so cruel is disturbing. It was well written and I can't wait for the second one.

It's a...

teaser story. I am glad I read this so far. I am not sure if I'm going to get the rest of the series. It was good but I am tired of getting into a story then having to buy the rest.

So I like a lot of this author's work. I can skip past some of the parts, but why in the world beastiality needed to be added is beyond me. I will NOT be reading any more of this series. I really think Abby Weeks is better than that! Truly disappointed!

Arhhhh again there is no ending, yes I knew it was a series but this takes the Micky... All through the book is should I do this or not, then when she decides to become a prostitute for a magazine article we are left hanging on a cliffhanger...

Interesting story

This was a short interesting story which continues on. The characters are interesting as well. I will think about continuation into the series.

This book has one amazing sex scene between Lacey and the guy she went on a date with and that was all there is to it. Very nice scene.

Hi, my name is Abby. I hope you enjoy my exciting new romance and erotica stories.

I love stories about strong, female protagonists that give you a good character arc and background to the action as well as providing the steamy details of what they get up to. I am particularly attracted to themes like wife-swapping, voyeurism, exhibitionism, and public and group encounters.

I am thirty-years-old and
