*****Five winners will receive copies of Damaged Girls I & II*****
Get excited, cry, curse, hate, love, and despise! If you’ve already read Damaged Girls I, then these emotions should be familiar. The Damaged Girls Family & Relationship Series began with an introduction to the complex love triangle of Steven Briggs, Jillian McConnell and Jessica Rodney. In the second book of the series, Damaged Girls II, get pulled deeper into the trauma and gain valuable knowledge of why Jillian and Jessica might be such easy targets for a womanizer such as Stevie. Jillian has to come to terms with the crumbling idea of love that she desperately needed to find in Stevie. And Jessica is forced to grow up and away from the man she so badly wanted to keep forever. Stevie even realizes that he needs to get a grip on the drama he created years back; while his decisions and behaviors continue to spiral deeper into selfishness. Unfortunately, Stevie’s insatiable appetite has not diminished, only causing him to become less likeable.
Will the three ever learn? As life progresses, we must confront our past, move into our present and plan sensibly for our future. How will Stevie, Jillian and Jessica cope, when life just can’t seem to smile in favor of their original desires? Damaged Girls is not a romance novel outlined in love. It is not pleasant and idealistic, but very cruel and extremely unsavory. In fact, it is deep and rather dark at times. The story focuses on emotional, physical and sexual abuse, and how easily its effects can cause some to own the title of Damaged Girls. [close]

While Agata’s year and half that she worked as a documented nanny for the German family comes with certain benefits in form of a social security number and experience crucial to establish herself in the United States, Mario is driven by his will alone to make enough money to cover the medical expenses for the kidney transplant that is needed to save his mother’s life.
Their vibrant relationship comes to a crippling halt when Agata has a daughter. Met with inflexibility from the US government, which refuses to pass an immigration reform that would allow the couple to live in the United States legally; Mario and Agata decide to gain legal status through a fake marriage to a United States citizen, to free themselves from the ever imminent threat of deportation.
Within this tale of romance and tragedy lie the underground immigration scene’s tools of the trade, at once cleverly disguised and boldly “in your face.” A must read for anybody even remotely interested in the politics of illegal immigration.
