I’m a pawn, a piece of chattel, a toy–used and forgotten.
When you’re done with me, you can walk away with no regrets. That’s how my husband sees me. I try to be the best wife possible for him. After all, he took me on when no one else would. Now–he’s in debt and owes more money to the loan shark than we can possibly repay.
But, don’t worry, he’s come up with a solution, it’s just not one I was expecting.
…I’ve been TRADED.

I bought this book from the author after meeting her at a signing plus seeing this book and thinking HEY that looks GREAT!!
SO I thought based on the blurb that this book was going to be kinda dark. Don’t get me wrong, the subject matter of domestic violence is not pretty or light to touch on but it wasn’t the dubious consent kinda book I half expected…SHEW!!
Elena is married to an AWESOME guy said no woman ever. She is subjected to daily abuse by him. When he shows up at home one night and tells her to get dressed up, she thinks she finally has pleased him. She finally is a good wife. She is so excited to have a date with her husband even if she is ugly and fat and pasty and and and…get the picture….anyway, she dresses up and goes. When she gets to the baseball game her spidey senses go off that things are not ok and oy is she right. Seems her hubby owes a lot of money to a loan shark named Ashton annnd well, he has pimped his wife out to clear the debit. WHAT!!??? Yup!!
Ashton is stunned stupid but was raised by a good family. He takes Elena not to use with as he wishes like her hubby told him but to help her overcome this abuse and move on with her life to be happy with someone else.
We see Ashton helping her gain her strength and her independence but we also see his desire for this woman. She challenges him and makes him want more than just this life.
Elena loves the new woman she has become and is shocked when Ashton reveals his desires for HER…the ugly, fat, horrible house wife ……what!!!
The story is a lot of them figuring out what they are and then coming to terms with their feelings. Ya see Elena only has 3 months but that time is ticking away. Her husband is none too thrilled to see his wife happy and in caring hands so he starts to make some waves and boy is in gonnna pay for that….
The book was great. I loved it to pieces and cant wait to start Miller, Ashton’s brothers book!!
