One girl, one secret …

Teagan Grant is homeless and on the run from her family. Life on the streets is rough enough but it’s about to get worse as she takes her fate into her hands by agreeing to a mysterious assignment from a sinister stranger calling himself “Sir”. With no idea she’s about to find herself in more peril than she can imagine, Teagan enters Sir’s shadowy world of beastly curses and clandestine rituals.

From murky alleyways and sparkling penthouses to menacing midnight forests, she pursues the answers her new employer will do anything to conceal. But as her relationship with the enigmatic Sir grows closer, so too does a new enemy—one with plans to destroy them both. Will Teagan and Sir learn to trust one another in time to join forces against this looming threat?


Review: I will start off by telling you that this story doesn’t have a lot of romance in it. It is a book about trust and helping each other out. Both have secrets that they don’t want to tell and they do have some strange things they do.

Teagan is running away from her family and lives on the street and will do just about anything to get some money because she is starving. So this man comes up to her that she calls Sir. He wants her to do some crazy thing for some money.

This book was different and I really don’t know what I think about it. In one way I liked it and in another it was a strange read. I liked trying to find out what secrets that they both had and I was surprised. I am still trying to wrap my mind around this book. There were so many things going on and when you thought you had it figured out, you realize that you really have no idea.

I really am trying to come up with the best way to describe how I feel and I am so afraid that if I do I will give too much of the book away and I don’t want to do that. So I will just say that I enjoyed the plot and I didn’t like the ending much. I felt it was missing something at the end.

If you like a book that has a little romance and some mystery and suspense then this is the book for you. It wasn’t what I thought it was but just take the time and try it yourself.
