“I’m breaking all my rules here. I’m breaking them all for him.” -Nine
“Baby, do you know what you’re worth? Men should be fighting over you. I sure as hell would.” -Trig


The first book that I read by Jennifer Raygoza was Silver Lining, which I loved.  So when I saw she was writing another book about an escort and a hit man I just had to read it.  I loved this book.  I had trouble putting it down.  It was a quick read and filled with drama and suspense, which is what I loved.  There was never a dull moment where Trig and Nine were concerned, and that is a really good thing. 

Nine was dealt a crappy hand in life.  She had two parents who could care less about her, an Uncle who just disgusts me, has lived in several foster homes and then forced to leave home.  Living on the streets with nowhere to go she meets Jenny who quickly becomes her best friend.  But they both need to find some way to survive.  Nine is desperate so her and her best friend decide to start their own business.  Ok maybe it’s not the most admirable kind of business but Nine needed to do what ever it took to be able to survive on her own.  It seemed like her only option.  But now a few years later, she has more money that she ever dreamed of and a reputation for being the best in the business and  there is no way she is quitting or leaving it all behind.  That is until she has no choice but to do so.

Trig had a good childhood with a mother who loved him and a brother and sister who he was very close to.  But when he has no choice but to get involved with the wrong people he becomes a man that he never thought he would be.  Trig is a hit man for one of the biggest drug dealers in Vegas.  His life as a hit man and Nine's as an escort bring them together in a difficult way.  He saves her, but at the same time in order to keep her safe he needs to hold her hostage.  Now here is where you wonder what will happen to these two?  Who is the real Trig? Is he really a cold hearted killer or is there a good guy trapped in there somewhere?  You will have to read to book to find out all of the answers.

I really loved this book and the story for me was different.  And escort and a hit man seems very interesting and it certainly was.  From the moment I met Trig I have to say I loved the guy.  Killer or not the guy was sexy and there was just something about him that I loved.  Nine and Trig had chemistry and you could feel the connection immediately, even if they appeared to hate each other in the beginning. 

Nine is feisty and takes no crap.  She isn’t about to give in to Trig that easy, no matter how hot he is.  But Nine starts to see that maybe Trig really isn’t the bad guy here.  And I think that is exactly what I saw in him.  There is so much more to Trig that what you see on the surface.  I loved how he wanted to protect her and give her what she deserved.  There is a moment in the book that just melted my heart completely.  Nine missed out on a lot because of her childhood and Trig wanted to give her everything.  He was just amazing.

I loved Nine and in ways felt really bad for her.  You could see what her childhood did to her. She put on a front, her game face you could say and became Nine when she was with a client.    But I think deep down you felt that this was not who she was or really wanted to be.  Trig saved her in more ways than one.  He showed her what life was really like.  And I loved him for it.

Nine is one of those books that you do not want to put down.  It was quick and fast paced.  I loved the drama and the suspense of not knowing what is going to happen next and how it will all play out.  There were some moments I didn’t expect  at all.  Tri and Nine were perfect together.  I loved their banter back and forth.  They fought and had their moments, which I think came from Nine’s stubbornness but they had a lot of great moments together.  I think my only issue was that one part of the story felt like it wasn’t completely resolved for me.  But otherwise this book was excellent.  I felt like it was non stop action but in a really good way.  I look forward to Jennifer’s next book. 


“Nine, It’s me. Look at me,” Trig yells. “It’s just me,” he repeats.
I collapse in his arms. I’m sobbing, as we both fall to the floor. He scoots me up into his lap and cradles me. We stay like that for a few minutes until I calm down. He suddenly moves and picks me up, carrying me back to the bed. He gently places me down and covers me up. He’s about to walk away, when I grab his hand.
“Lay with me.”
He looks at me with uncertainty.
“Please,” I beg.
He climbs over the bed and lays down next to me. I need to touch him again. There is something soothing about it. I don’t even care what he is or what he does at the moment. He makes my demons disappear and I need that right now. I turn on my back and inch my hand closer and closer to his. Our fingers are now slightly touching. I move my hand entirely inside of his. He wraps his hand around mine, and that’s where I find my peace. I close my eyes and fall back asleep.


 I was listening to him and the more he talked the more he stole my breath away. I wasn’t sure what this was between us, but whatever it was, it had me feeling weak.
“You don’t have to feel sorry for me. I don’t need your pity,” I snap.
“Do you think I feel sorry for you? I feel a lot of things, Nine, but sorry isn’t one of them.”
“Yeah? What do you feel then?”
“Outraged mostly. I want to take you back up into that cabin bedroom and make love to you. I want to kiss you until you can’t even think straight. I want to give you all that shit you should have experienced a long time ago. I’m not angry. I’m fucking livid when I think about your life.”

About me: Jennifer Raygoza also known as the rebel of writing, burst through the writing scene in 2012 with a vampire series called, The Guardians. It was a story originally written just for fun, but ended up being self-published out of curiosity. Little did she know, the series would be strongly embraced by vampire readers. Since then this down to earth, California girl has been picked up by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing.  
She break hearts, kills bad guys and gives you characters that make you fall in love. This writer will have you turning pages and thirsting for more.
