I’d say I’m down on my luck, but that’s an understatement. I’m flat on my ass. Homeless, hungry and in hiding with my little sister at the age of twenty-one, I’ve never been so desperate. I’ve hit rock bottom when I get an offer I can’t refuse. Sell my body to save my sister? There’s nothing I won’t do to keep her safe. I make the rules and I’m not afraid to defend my

You all think you would say no. Wouldn't sleep with someone for $500 and a night in a hotel for your sister. And a long time ago Quinn would have thought she would stick to her morals too. But now she's cold, hungry, and needs to take care of her younger sister. So when she's propositioned to sleep with a wealthy man, she accepts. And her life changes from there.

It was supposed to be one night, sex and that's all. But when Andre

It's no secret that Brenda Rothert is a wizard with the written word, and it comes as no surprise that she's also at the top of my list for authors that I'll always be happy to read. So when I was given the chance to read and review this authors latest release I was one happy reader. 'His' is a tale of opposites attract in this latest romantic suspense novel.

Rating Clarification: 2.5 Stars

Who doesn't love a rag to riches story? Or even a Cinderella story, complete with a fairy tale ending. His by Brenda Rothert is exactly that, although Quinn isn't as helpless as our Cinderella was.

Quinn lives on the streets with her little sister, Bethy. They've been on the streets for years dodging danger at every turn, scavenging for food from dumpsters but at least they were safe from the very real danger they escaped from back home. But their luck has finally r
3 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was just ok for me. I just wanted...more. I felt like we didn't get deeply into the characters or even the storyline. It felt like I was waiting for that "more" throughout the story. I didn't hate it and it wasn't bad per se, but I didn't love it either. Just middle of the road and kind of meh *shrugs*.

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Quinn and Andrew's story. Quinn is living on the streets with her little sister and they are hiding from someone. One day, sh

How far will you go to protect your sister? Will you be able to steal? Lie? Sell your body? In Brenda Rothert’s latest new release, His, Brenda brings forth these question into light. When it comes to surviving and having food in the stomach, can a young woman sell her body for $500 for one night? But what happen

I was actually very pleased with this ,as everyone would put it, a "modern cindarella" story...

But i liked it, it wasn't sappy or mushy (God knows, i steer clear from that.. lol), it was done with style, a dose of mystery and suspense...

and it worked as a perfect little treat!

I liked this book, a lot. This is definitely modern day Cinderella done right, and I loved every second of it! I’m a fan of Brenda’s hockey books, love all of them. So I immediately jumped on the chance to read and review this one, not to mention the blurb sounded amazing.
This is mostly a story about survival, and how far would you go to survive and protect your family. What would you be willing to do? Quinn ran away from her home 4 years before in order to save herself, and her little sister f

This didn't really work for me - I liked the first half of the book and was cruising for an easy 4 star read, then I'm not really sure what went awry but from the halfway mark nothing much happened. I got bored and fed up waiting for her big reveal as to why she was on the run. This didn't happen till around 85% and it was done with so quick I blinked and almost missed it. Too little, way too late.

The wrap up of the bad guys was so anti-climatic, and I was left scratching my head. Uh wu

I swear if Cinderella had a modern version story then this would be it!! LOL

The story starts with Quinn living on the streets with her sister (Bethy) and a friend called “Bean” who she met on the streets. Quinn and her sister are homeless, escaping from their step dad, too afraid to even go ask for help as Bethy is still underage. What I loved about Quinn is her fieriness and the love she has for her sister!

I’ve read some amazing reviews about Brenda Rothert’s books. I own a few of her books and I’ve been wanting to read one of them for a while. I loved the sound of this book. I wondered how the homeless woman will meet the rich man. I loved His and it definitely won’t be my last read by this author.

Quinn and her little sister ran away from someone a few years ago. They have been living on the street since, because they need to hide. It’s not easy, but they are together and alive. Quinn is having a

Great story! Grabs you right from the start and carries you through the duration of the book. It leaves you smiling with that happy, satisfied feeling by the end of the Epilogue.

The relationship of Quinn & Andrew was well told. In the beginning they thought they had virtually nothing in common but through their unexpected growing friendship, they find out they share more in common than they first thought. Both are broken and lonely. They each have secrets to keep but hers

Does the heroine some sort of FLASHDANCE fetish? That's the only reason I can think of for her to be sporting those leg warmers...*lol*

Meh. It started out really good but the big secret the H/h were hiding was so anticlimactic. It was so bad I just couldn't believe all that buildup led to that big reveal. Also, the scene with Paul was just so random it felt like the author just wanted to throw it in there at the last minute to wrap things up.

I tend to add books to my tbr at an alarming rate. I'm honestly not sure if I will ever manage to read them all (though I do make a valiant effort.) I also tend to forget what drew me to a book, but trust that if it's in my tbr, then I wanted to read it for a reason. So, as in this case, I go into books blind quite frequently. I had no idea what to expect and this is one of those times that turned out particularly well.

"Sometimes surviving is exhausting."

I was already a Brenda Rothert fan when I started reading this book. I've especially enjoyed her #HockeyHotties. But this's She drew me in with broken characters that had big secrets. She teased me with the mystery of what Quinn was running from. She had me biting my nails, waiting for the past to catch up with her at any second. Surely it would happen on the very next page I turned, right?

And then, there's Andrew...sigh. He's a no-no

I'm at a loss for words to explain why without giving away the story. Except - Read this book.

Quinn and Andrew are what I want in characters for a non-stop read. Quinn is strong. She's motivated. She knows what she needs in the relationship with Andrew and stays strong throughout the story without wavering. Andrew's request for the neat and tidy relationship he's had in the past is turned on its head. And it's Andrew's quiet, steady perseverance that the terms of agreement can always be revampe

WOW! Okay I started HIS after the kiddos were down and I finished it at 3 am. I could not put this book down for the life of me. That is how much this story totally captivated my attention from the beginning until the end. Brenda Rothert is seriously one of my favorite authors – I read her book Blown Away for the first time and I was obsessed with her writing since.

I really like the heroine Quinn – she is strong and such a badass. Quinn escaped with her younger sister from a desperate and horri

I first fell in love with Brenda Rothert’s writing several years ago the moment I picked up Bound. I absolutely love her writing style and love the stories she creates. I have to say that Him was no different than. I really didn’t know what to expect going into this book and must say I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a great mix of suspense and angst, sweet and at times funny but also a bit heartbreaking.

This book has a kick-ass, awesome beginning. Quinn and her sister are homeless. They are running from a secret, so they have to stay low. I really enjoyed how the author doesn’t give all of the secrets away so it made me want to keep reading. Quinn needs money because her sister is sick.

Not having read any other works by Brenda Rothert before, I was extremely impressed with His, it was a page-turner that had me reading nonstop. It's definitely not your typical Cinderella story, but it's unique enough to keep you wanting for more.

It all begins with a simple proposition, sleep with a wealthy man for one night and receive $500 dollars in the process. If anyone were asked that, some might simply say no, but not Quinn. After

I finished His today and absolutely adored the story. Truly a five star read. There was a bit of Pride and Prejudice meets Cinderella then turned into Pretty Woman in play throughout it. I highly recommend this one for anyone looking for a story with a strong heroine, a swoon worthy hero, a passionate coming together and a whole lot of other thrilling elements thrown into it.

Meh.. this was alright more 2.5 stars then 3 even then I'm not sure.

There was nothing epic about the H and h's love. It was just there.

Also, I didn't really like how the heroine just left her sister. I get that the $$ would help but why not just somehow take her with you?
4.5 Andrew and Quinn Stars

I really enjoyed this grown up , dark themes , Cinderella-esque novel. Andrew is a 28 yo smart, rich and successful man. Quinn is a 21yo reosourceful . homeless , runaway girl who is also protecting her 16yo Sister. Quinn has nothing and Andrew has everything. The story has glimmers of Indecent Proposal when Andrew offers Quinn money to stay with him for 6 months. Quinn is not obliged to have sex with him but the chemistry is positively crackling between them. I loved t

Great story of a girl on the run with her sister willing to do whatever it takes to keep her safe and have food in her stomach. I loved the slow friendship turned into love, Quin might have been strong when she talked but only because she knew Andrew would be there to save the day if she was in trouble. Great story
