Not your typical prostitute ... this is a story of unconditional love.

“I need a reason to exist.”

Beautiful, intelligent, independent, strong-willed, wealthy—Lilith Fontenot seems by all appearances, to have it all. But that’s not how the highest paid prostitute in New Orleans sees herself.

A stain on society. A scourge. A waste. Outsider. Prisoner…

Any idyllic dream of the

It’s been a while since I’ve read a Willow Aster book, and I couldn’t wait to read this one! Her writing is so stunning and poetic. Whore was one of those books that captivated me from the start.

The title Whore describes the leading lady, Lilith. It’s her job, the family trade. It’s not what she wants to be, but it’s all she knows. She’s not a cheap whore, though. She’s expensive. She’s from New Orleans and lives in a house that’s been in her family for generations. She thinks this i

Lilith/Lili is a prostitute at her families brothel Maison D'amour in the french quarter of New Orleans. The brothel was started by her great-grandmother and passed down, her mother the queen bitch Madam now runs it.
No one plans to be a whore. Except maybe my mother. It certainly wasn't my life's dream as a little girl.

This book was such a pleasant surprise. Having found out about this from another author, I was actually nervous to read it. There seems to be a lot of mixed opinions, with people saying they either loved it or hated it. For me, I most definitely enjoyed this story, especially after the halfway mark.

You know that moment when you read a book that everyone loves and raves about? That book that you're giddy with excitement to get your hands on? That book that you simply drooled over reading the synopsis? And then you end up the redheaded stepchild of the bunch because you're in the severe minority that the book just didn't work for?



This tells you two things automatically:

Gah! I just loved this book. The story was compelling and intense. It was swoon-worthy to the max and left me breathless more than once. It was so much more than I expected and I expected a lot based on the blurb and that gorgeous cover.

Whore is a story about Lilith who the book is named after. She’s been groomed for her role her whole life growing up under her mother’s tutelage. She does her job, she’s good at it, and doesn’t expect much else. Making attachments is something

Heather❀Book and a Blanket❀
I was intrigued by this book from the blurb. I loved that this was based on the biblical story of Hosea and Gomer. It's kind of like a modern version of one of my favorite books Redeeming Love. It started off really good. Lilith has been essentially raised by her mother to be a high end prostitute. She has never really been given the option to be anything else.

There are two men in her life. Her ex Nico is in the Mafia and a new man Soti who walks into her life. I won't go into details to avoid a

Really, really good!

This was simply a great read. Kept me on my toes the entire time. Super likeable main characters you would want to root for the entire time. Although I own many Willow Aster books, this is the first one I’ve actually read. It definitely won’t be my last.

Whore started out amazing. Fast paced and intriguing characters. I ate the story up but close to the 50% mark I felt the story started to fizzle out and I lost interest. Nothing happened. It wasn’t until the 85% that the story started to pick up again. Lili was a great character who never gave up despite the cards she was dealt and the same can be said about the gorgeous and kind Soti. These two were incredible and I enjoyed their scenes together which delivered laughs, romance and heartbreak. O ...more

DNF 58%. I wanted to love it, I just struggled with the writing, the characters, the pacing, and ultimately the instalove that carried this storyline. I couldn’t connect to the chemistry between the characters and didn’t believe the connection they had. I kind of blame my high expectations going in to the book. For some reason I expected a wickedly sexy love triangle. This isn’t that. At all. It’s totally different. I just couldn’t get into it.

Ahhh what have I just read?? This was an addictive read to the T I was hooked from page one..

Lilith has been brought up and taught to be a whore, ahh can you imagine? But it’s the most elaborate kind, in an expensive hotel ‘as such’ so she wasn’t not looked after. Well not in the ways of luxury, but maybe she wasn’t cared for emotionally.. with her boss as her own mother Lilly was crafted to be the perfect ‘whore’ and that’s just the start..

I give this book 5 out of 5 Completely Blown Away Stars!!! Like holy crap, this book is not what it seems at all. When you read the blurb and read the beginning of this book it seems like we are going to be swept away in a sweet romance that resembles “Pretty Woman”. You know how it goes, when the guy is in love with theprostitute but she has her guards up and eventually there is all that warm and fuzzy love. Well no, this book goes way beyond the realms of that and is uniquely designed! I could ...more

There’s no better feeling than diving into a brand new romance by an author that is new to you, and being absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the impact it had on you. This was the feeling that I had once I DEVOURED Whore by Willow Aster. Who is this author, and where has she been all my life! I’m shocked she hasn’t been on my radar this whole time, but I’m incredibly grateful that she is now, and there is NO GOING BACK!

I wished I had more reactions while reading this book.

One thing I can say I LOVED was the phrases at the beggining of the chapters.

This book didn't do it for me. I have nothing against the writing style, in fact, just because this book didn't work, doesn't mean I won't read other works from this author. I can guarantee that I will.

My main problem was connecting with the characters. I was initially intrigued with Lilith, but then....POOF....all her charm and mystery seemed

This book is now called Lilith.

Whore is a standalone book. It was listed on netgalley under romance and mysteries & thrillers. And I think this is accurate. There is romance. But there is also a mystery aspect to the book.

This is my first book by this author.

The book is divided into four parts. The book is narrated in first person POVs. The main narrator is Lilith/Lili (22).

When the book begins Lilith works as a prostitute at Maison D'amour in the French Quarter/New Orleans. Her mother Alexi

"I wish I could wander through your mind and heal every single bad memory."

Whore was my introduction to the writing of Willow Aster. And I must say, it was memorable. Being a fan of books with broken characters, this one was right up my alley. You can't get much more broken than Lilith. She didn't have a chance at normal, born and raised into the lifestyle predetermined by her family took away her choices. Her childhood dreams of finding love and living happily ever after were shot down very e

Honestly though, did Willow Aster REALLY write this? Sweet, sweet Willow? Did she? Wow! I am so very impressed with her. As I always am. Whore had the twists and the turns and the angst and the yearning. I did not see that coming with this book. Not at all.

“In another life, he looks exactly like someone I’d want to know.”

Whore was pretty cool because it shows just how versatile Willow can be as an author. She can write angsty love, she can write heartache and longing, and she can write mystery

UPDATE:
Is it too late to add another book to my Best of 2017 list? Nope. I make the rules, and it’s still 2017.  

Whore, by Willow Aster, is absolutely incredible. This emotion-packed, unconventional romance was intense. There were a few times I had to put this book down to keep myself from peeking ahead every few pages.  My anxiety levels were pretty cranked up from the angst and suspense-filled plot.
