's review

it was amazing

Two words: MALE POV... or I guess that was actually one word, one acronym.
Whatever, this is not a drill. Exclusively male POV! Something I don’t think Skye has ever done before.. except maybe in Leashed.. I digress.
I don’t know if I could have had this any other way. Hugo’s perspective was so unique and delightful. Instead of hearing Bea internalize her insecurities, we got to see her beauty through Hugo’s unbiased eyes. His narrative was so deliciously Hugo - there really is no other way to describe him. The way he speaks - I just want to go around starting sentences with, “But no...” I’m not doing this justice. Let me try again.
When you pick up a book about a virgin and a prostitute, you’re expecting a lot of innocence and naivety. You probably don’t expect the characters to be matched in either. On the one hand, here you have a man who sells his body and enjoys women. But you’ve also got a boy who was manipulated into this man and who never learned anything about love. In this, Bea and Hugo were matched perfectly. Their shared spark was apparent immediately. Watching a hero bend automatically to that instead of running from it was refreshing and yes, completely swoon-worthy. I love a dark, gritty taboo as much as the next gal, but this one was sweet and full of heart, even despite the darker undertones. Skye has done it again with her timeless, beautiful words and her ability to make you just sit back and dream and feel.
