KD Williamson has managed to write a thought-provoking story that went places I didn’t expect and made me question certain behaviours. Shawn was at a low point in her life after breaking up with her cheating ex and moving in with her old college friend Veda. With her help she gets a much needed job in a sex emporium and starts getting on with life. But how she does it doesn’t go in a straight line. She is so down and needs to feel good again, using sex as a way to get there. The sex was hot and varied and very well written. There was much about Shawn’s actions that I found very unappealing but it was such an integral part of the story. There was also a lot of humour, mostly from Shawn’s work in Stump’s sex shop. This added a welcome lightness at times and showed variety and depth.
I recommend this book as it wasn’t an easy read. People change and sometimes we really hate their behaviour but that doesn’t mean we give up on them. I left this book feeling that the journey was worth it . I ran through a gamet of emotions and realised I want more. I hope we hear more of Shawn in the future .
I was given this ARC by Ylva Publishing in return for an honest review.
