Title: Aurora James
Author: Jessica Ingro
WEARY. DESPERATE. BROKE.
I did what I had to do to save her.
I sold my soul to survive.
I fell in love with the devil himself.
I'm Aurora James, and this is my story.
DANGEROUS. MENACING. FORMIDABLE.
He is darkness and danger; I am his light.
He is cold and ruthless; I am his warmth.
He is a heartless pimp; I am his whore.
And this is our beginning.
I've come to expect three things from Jessica Ingro's writing -- a taboo story featuring a relationship that pushes the boundaries of what's "normal", an intensely erotic connection between the hero and heroine, and characters who are going to make me both love and hate them. Aurora James lives up to all of my expectations and more. If you're looking for a tender love story, Jessica Ingro's novels are not that. She knows how to write a story that will get under your skin, set you on fire, and leave you wanting more.
Aurora is a single mother who has found herself at rock bottom. In order to provide the necessities for her daughter, she vows to go to any lengths to get money. Yes, any lengths. I loved her character because her foundation is built upon a genuine love for her child. Her devotion pushes her to let her moral compass stray. My initial reaction to her employment choices may have been to judge, but you can't fault the heroine for the path she's chosen when all other options proved to be empty.
Enter the hero. Or at times villain. Xavier really tested me as I delved deeper into their story. The connection between Aurora and Xavier is tumultuous but addictive. They can't deny their desires, but Aurora does her best to not mix business and pleasure. I really don't want to get into the plot specifics because that would spoil the story for readers. I will, however, deliver this warning -- this ending is going to make you regret reading the last page. I am still in shock and DYING to get more from Jessica Ingro. Her words are both infuriating and alluring, which is why she is a favorite author of mine.
No matter what the title of the story, if the author is Jessica Ingro, readers can expect a story that lures them in, commands their attention, entices them out of their comfort zone, and exposes them to a raw, gritty world where the right decision is never easy.
