Well that was different… but in a really awesome way!
Cash Braddock is a drug dealer. But the classy kind. Pills. She really doesn’t get why people are so uptight about that sort of thing. She has a decent operation, a little business to launder money through, and only a few Mommy issues.
Laurel Collins is the perfect girl for Cash. She wears vintage ties and is totally chill. She doesn’t mind the dealing or Cash’s cat. It’s almost like she’s Cash’s dream girl. Sometimes she’s a little closed off about, you know, life. But who isn’t?
Sadly, the drug game doesn’t always run smoothly. There are dealers who don’t respect boundaries and unreliable customers. And, of course, dealers don’t fly under the cops’ radar forever. Even when they work with dirty cops. Which is a damn shame. It’s not like they’re hurting anybody, right?
I actually really enjoyed this book by Ashley Bartlett. Cash Braddock isn’t your standard Lesfic Romance but it was done ever so well!
Cash Braddock is a drug dealer… but don’t write her off straight away! She’s so sweet, caring and (by the description) extremely hot… and actually if there was ever going to be someone that deserves your time it’s Cash. She’s a second parent and friend to the young girl next door, she’s a great friend and when she falls for you, she really falls for you.
So can we look past the drugs?
…I did and I’m glad I picked this book up.
The book is written from Cash’s POV, Which normally I’m not a fan of but it worked for this novel. I especially enjoyed the sarcastic quips from Cash and her girlfriend Laurel, I definitely had a few laugh out load moments; I love a bit of humor and sarcasm in a novel so this was a big tick for me.
I thought all the characters developed well as the story continued and the twist (don’t we all love a great twist) was done well. I had a feeling from the start something was up but when it happens it flips your perspective on more than one character.
If you read my blog you all know I love a good sex scene and this book not only delivered but it was written extremely well. I felt the build up to it was cleverly written, and when it finally happens the reader is hooked.
Ashley Bartlett was able to leave me hanging on every word and then at the end just like a junkie from the book… I was hooked and craving more!
Come on Ashley Bartlett we need know when we can expect our next ‘hit’ from Cash Braddock…
