A Penny’s Worth
by Cynthia Austin
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: July 28, 2017
Sara Conrad just about had it all, wealth, beauty, a prominent place in Las Vegas society as the owner of a popular nightclub, and a reputation that was second to none.
There was only one thing Sara failed to possess…
That’s because it was dominated by a despicable sociopath, her husband, Ezra Silverstein, who rarely let Sara out of his sight and manipulated her every move.
Out of desperation, Sara turned to a bodyguard at her club, Max Tobias, for sanity and salvation. Before long they are on the verge of a torrid affair that threatens not only to engulf them personally but their very lives, as well.
When Silverstein catches wind of Sara and Max’s relationship, he is determined to make them pay for their betrayal. He makes it his mission to inflict a blood thirsty punishment on his beloved Sara and her romantic rescuer.
As events reach their dramatic climax, Sara is stunned to discover Max is not really a bodyguard at all. This revelation turns her entire world upside down leaving her vulnerable and unable to trust anyone, especially the man to whom she had given her heart.
Riveting. Unpredictable. Page turning
The story of a good woman trying to survive in Sin City where Satan himself has set up camp in her own marriage, and the only man she had truly loved turned out to be a virtual stranger.
God help her.
Overall the book was okay, it was hard to stay focus, and it was just missing something, it was hard to keep going. I did not feel much of a connection to any of the characters. The plot of the story had promise but it just fell short.
Sara was too swishy washy for me, I’m all for a little drama but this woman was a little over the top with her back and forth between the husband that cheats and a sexy bouncer that only shows how much concern. I wanted to see her develop over the book and I really did not see much of that. I will give this book a 3 <3’s
