In my world, there is no such thing as love. It is just a lie we whisper into our client’s ear. Love is foreign and hazardous. What I did not expect was to bare my soul to a man who is as egotistical as he is dangerous.

His name is Landon. Despite his blackened soul, he tried to save me, but what he didn't expect was my torturous fate to catch up with me.
To your father, I'm

When I'd quickly breezed over the book blurb for Reliquish, I honed in on one word...ESCORT. A self-proclaimed escort fanatic, it took me 2.5 seconds to request an early copy for review. What I didn't quite grasp was that this book is about a FEMALE escort (darn) but the book was still quite enjoyable, nonetheless.

Relinquish is the story of a young 18-year old girl named Charlie (short for Charlotte). She's lived a rough life within the foster care system after her mother wa

Ok this is a DNF for me, I'm so sorry I enjoyed the first 15% but it went downhill after that, I liked the synopsis and it seemed like an intriguing plot but I feel like I'm reading the start of Pretty Woman without the romance and that's my biggest issue for me, I need to know and feel a future in the couple I'm not feeling it (even with darker reads I usually feel a connection) plus the heroine is very immature no self respect for herself, I'm struggling. This is just me though, I know people ...more

This may be a case of « It's me not you » so don't let my rating or my review deter you from reading this book.

I feel cheated by the blurb from the start and never throughout my read I could get past it. So I guess, the whole book was a big frustration for me and I think you can see it with my different updates.

If I have to find a word to summarize my feeling for the book, it would be : immature.

After reading the blurb, I thought I would read a book about a

Okkkkk so just under half way, there's a scene in the book that has kind of sent a red flag up.. Without going into detail and wrecking it for readers, I'll just state why a red flag has popped up, when something so terrible NEARLY occurs in your life you would expect the leading female character to be hysterica

This was a good one, I thought it was a unique idea for a story and I really enjoyed my reading experience, the only reason I am not rating it a full 4 stars, is because it was missing the x-factor for me. I thought the character development was good on Charlie's side, I just felt a little disconnected from Landon at times.

Charlie suffered a terrible traumatic experience at the age of nine, and has been in the care of the state ever since. The day she turns 18 she flees to Las V

This book surprised me. It had, first and foremost, a very unique and fresh storyline.
Charlie has been alone her whole life. She grew up in foster care and she never had a real family. Her young life has been full of sorrow and misery. On her 18th birthday, she decides that she's had enough and decides to leave the foster home. She moves to Vegas in hopes that things will get better, that she will get a job.
But nothing gets better. Instead, she finds herself tricked. She realizes that when love

This author has a fan in me...every book I have read of hers just pulls me in and doesn't let go. Her characters are flawed, strong, and possess a force about them that keeps you riveted to their story. You start this story from the beginning...a tragedy strikes and you can feel the momentum moving towards all worlds eventually colliding.

Wah, this one much different from what I expected to begin my week family vacation with. *Thank god my hotel had wi-fi for my copy to register through my kindle!*

Relinquish is the story of survival, you against the world. It's about picking yourself up, being able to relying on your own wits and intuition to keep you alive, and protecting those you love.

M.N. Forgy seductively hypnotize her readers to a world of madams, escorts and prostitution in Relinquish. Ms. Forgy engages the readers to relinquish their inhibitions and get lost in this dark romance that tells the story of Charlie and Landon. Charlie is haunted and plagued with a gruesome past. As a child of the Foster Care System, she was able to leave when she was of legal age. Life is not easy for Charlie until she meets

The heart wants what it wants...
I am a big fan of the author's MC series and look forward to getting my hands on anything she writes. Relinquish is a heart breaking, thought provoking, mind bending, boundary stretching story. I think one of the things that is hard for the readers is that when we are reading Charlie's POV, we are inside the head of a teenager who knows nothing but the extreme dysfunction of the foster system she was raised in. Her reality is not the same as ours and her expectati

4 Stars!

I enjoyed this one, a look into the escort business, I found it compelling and addictive. Think Pretty Woman with suspense. A bit of grit and some twistedness.

Charlie, a foster child that's blocked out the memory of her tragic past, the reason she's alone. Charlie and her spitfire friend take off to Vegas, finally free. But at what cost?

To be truly blown away by a book nowadays, when it seems like there are so many books in the world, is a feat. This is one of those books that, days later, will still have you thinking about it.

I don’t want to give a summary of this book because I feel like I may slip with one little detail and ruin the experience for you, so I will just say the story was awesome and well executed from start to end.

The main characters each have an attraction to the other; neither has felt anything like it befo

Unfortunately this was a DNF for me. I loved the synopsis and the first 10% or so was really good. It went a little down hill from there and I think that's mainly due to the heroine. I just could not connect with her at all and absolutely did not get the decisions she was making. She just seemed to make bad choice after bad choice and to be honest, she ended up grating on my every nerve. Despite her age, her actions seemed unrealistic and unbelievable which made the story exactly the same. i'm s ...more

“I was just trying to survive. I didn’t know I was becoming a whore.”

The definition of a whore is as follows:
'a woman who engages in promiscuous sexual intercourse, usually for money.'

Now, there are different variations of names for a so-called 'whore' such as call girl, escort, strumpet, harlot, prostitute, lady of the night. Really, the list can go on and on. But what this definition doesn't state is just how one becomes one. In Charlie's (and Jayden's) case, it was out of pure desperation and

I'm starting out by saying I absolutely love M.N. Forgy's writing. I reviewed one of her books in her Devil's Dust series, so I was very excited to get the opportunity to review Relinquish. It's different from anything she's written and I couldn't be happier for her.

Charlie is a runaway. She has no family and very few friends. She decides when she turns eighteen that it's time to leave her foster house and make a new life for herself. After all of her savings are stolen, she's left with virtuall

Well, a hot and very interesting story. It could have gained more stars if the heroine was written differently. After her first horrible experiences I expected to see a change in Charlie, but she never learned from her mistakes...she remained naive...fortunately Landon's love for her was her salvation.

I liked how Landon's character was developed. Despite what was revealed by the end in that bomb twist...he really was a fascinating character.

This was a nice fast read.

3.5 stars and here's why... I felt like the ending was a bit rushed. Our couple, Landon and Charlie, have been through some stuff to end up together and at the end, all of a sudden, they're together and all is ok. I would have liked to see how Landon dealt with (view spoiler)

I do have to give major props to M.N. Forgy though. She wrote a fantastic book that pushed my comfort zone at the beginning. I kept texting Amanda to ask if I'd be ok reading it since we r

M.N. Forgy introduces you to the world of pimps, escorts, and prostitution. But one thing that must be made clear is that this book... this story is so much more than that.

Charlotte 'Charlie' Evans hasn't had it easy since she's been 9. Plagued by the nightmares of a past she can't remember and growing up in the foster system life hasn't been easy. Finally, at 18 she catches her first break and leaves the foster home behind with her foster sister and best friend,

This story is like no other. The synopsis ma not give much away, but that is a good thing. It shouldn't. It should entice you, which it does. At least it did me. However, I loved all of author's previous books, so for me to read it was a no brainer.

I can't really give you too much of the story itself. This is one of those books where if I say the wrong thing, I have spoiled some of the book. And I am no spoiler.

These characters are spot on. One couldn't have written these characters any better.

This book takes the reader that on one hell of a journey.

We meet Charlie. She's had a tough life, but she's survived - almost - by blocking a lot of her childhood out. 
Just when she thinks she's able to be free at last, in jumps Jayden. They barely know each other but Charlie's kind heart wants to help, so the girls decide to stick together.

But sticking together is one thing, surviving together is a whole different ball game.

I have read all of Ms. Forgy’s books since she started her Devil’s Dust MC Series and I really have loved them all. I was really excited to see that she was going to be coming out with a book that is completely different from her MC series. Relinquish was amazing. The characters were well developed and the premise of the story blew my mind. This story deals with topics that some might find offensive but when you get to know the characters and all they lived through and
