My Review in a Nutshell:
I remember reading Brenda’s novels whenever she first began pursuing her dream as an author, and seeing her evolve as a writer with every book she released. His is indefinitely my favorite contemporary romance. The plot line, action, mystery, intriguing characters, and of course the romantical scenes that will make a grown woman blush, had me so engrossed that I finished reading in a day.
What’s It All About?
His rotates between Quinn and Andrew’s perspectives. Quinn and her younger sister have been homeless and in hiding for several years, someone powerful is after them, and Quinn’s sole purpose is to keep her sister safe from harm. But living on the streets for so long has taken its toll, and Quinn is desperate for relief. By the luck of a draw, a man approaches her with a proposition- money for sex. She accepts, begrudgingly. She will do anything to help her sister, regardless. But rather becoming a sexual object as expected, she finds herself whisked away into a world of upper-class glamour by a man who in fact, is not a prostitute buying weirdo, but a gentlemen who finds himself mesmerized with her. So much so, that he wants to save her.
His had action, romance novels NEVER have action. Quinn is a knife wielding/kick your ass/no bullshit heroine, what’s not to love? And Andrew, the crème de la crème of men; Prince Charming doesn’t hold a candle to him. Imagine Charming with edge, and a dirty mind to boot. A lot is going on with these two, other than their odd arrangement. Quinn has secrets, Andrew has secrets, every dang person has a secret. None of which are too easily guessed. Like I wrote earlier- GOOD PLOT LINE, as well as a heartfelt love story that puts Titanic to shame! The suspense of it all was almost too much to handle!
I’ll admit, the overview of His sounds a tad creepy. A man basically purchasing a woman? Odd. But trust me when I say it is the furthest thing from odd. You must read to understand. Imagine Pretty Woman, not Taken, eh la Liam Neeson. I cried from fear, sadness and joy, this book made me a blubbery mess. I loved every minute of it. If this doesn’t become a movie somehow, the proverbial poo will hit the fan. Seriously.
