SYNOPSIS

**This is a short story**

Lacey Caldez is in a bind.

Her bills aren’t paid, her mother is broken, and they’re about to lose their house. Realizing she’s low on options, she buries her pride and approaches the last person she ever wanted to owe a favor to.

Robbie Reynolds is brutal, demanding, and one hell of a mobster. He’s also her ex. But despite his character flaws, he offers her a chance to avoid financial ruin—but can she stomach what he’s asking of her?

J&G: 4 Stars

Gitte: Well this was another very short but high impact story from Jade Eby, wasn’t it Jenny?! It really astounds me just how much emotion and character connection she can achieve in such few words. Did I wish it was longer, absolutely, because the writing and the depth is flawless so would love a full story from this Author. I ended up feeling kind of satisfied but I wanted more, the ending was a tad abrupt albeit powerful. I thought our heroine had real strength and conviction whilst struggling in life and the snapshot we got was very compelling.

“I don’t know why I wanted to play good for so long when being bad feels so much better.” – Lacey

She’s an enabler and a provider with her wits fully aware. She sure packs a punch and I’d love to read more about her.

‘That’s the thing about power: it consumes you from the inside out. Races through your veins like a shot of crack, begging you for more….’ – Lacey

Jenny: Sure was Gitte! This author sure does possess a talent for packing so much into few pages and I honestly don’t know how she does it and yes I am desperately waiting to get my grubby little mitts on a full length novel by Jade Eby because if this is what she can do with 30 pages…what would she do with 300!!! It would be epic that’s for sure!!!

“You don’t have the luxury of quitting. I own, you remember?” – Robbie

What a heroine! I thought Lacey was going to be something very different to how we first met her and her strength and fortitude were commendable. Backed into a corner she shows off some real gumption that’s for sure and I really would like to know more about this kick arse character. Robbie was a complete dick who played on Lacy’s weaknesses.

“I was that heroin addict back for her latest fix” – Lacey

So yeah, I really enjoyed this one and whilst this may have been short it was anything but sweet. It was gritty and gripping and I inhaled it….I just would have loved more!! This is a great in between read when you want something quick and enthralling.
