I screw men for money. Not literally, think phone sex operator with a 15 megapixel web cam thrown in. They tell me their deepest, darkest fantasies while paying me $6.99 a minute. 

What would possess me to engage in such a business? Throw in a tortoured past, 24/7 murderous thoughts, and a desire to keep the innocent people of my small town safe. 

I was contained, out of the way, sexcamming my way to utter obscurity until HE came along. A twisted client armed with a targets name. Annie. And in that name, everything changed.

I am not even sure where to start with this book. It was totally different from anything I have read and out of my comfort zone. At the beginning I was intrigued, then kind of shocked and a little bit horrified, then intrigues again, and then got invested in the story. It was dark, depraved, sexy and then even touching.

Deanna is probably one of the most twisted, broken females I have ever read about. She is a hermit, a Cam Girl(Men pay to watch her perform sexual acts on the internet), she has a tragic past, and she lives a solitary existence. She isolates herself due to her  homicidal thoughts. Everything she needs, she gets off the internet or from people she meets online. They way she lives is sad and she is kind of scary. The descriptions of the Cam Girl life and her clients was very detailed and at times shocking.

Jessica. Not my real name. He thought he knew me. They all thought they knew me.
After all, they've seen my Facebook page, seen the photoshopped photos that construct my manufactured life. They believe what they see because they want to believe.

...but homesick in that I want to crawl into someone's arms and have them comfort me. Rub my back and tell me that everything is going to be okay. You don't realize how much you miss human interaction until it is removed for your life.

At the times the book was disjointed as you learn about her clients, their fetishes, and also have chapters interjected about a young girl named Annie and a UPS delivery man Jeremy. But as the story unravels, the disjointed pieces come together and the story morphs into a frantic race against the clock. Deanna feels she has no choice but to get involved  to help someone and uses all her contacts available to her. Deanna shows strength, determination, intelligence, and bravery and is able to push past her own fears and needs and think about someone else. 

I really liked Jeremy and his attempts to bring Deanna out of her miserable existence. He was kind of obsessed with the quirky hermit...Deanna had no clue what to do with him.

"I don't now what's going on with you, with your whole 'I don't talk to people, I kill them' act. But I know what's going on with me, and that's that I can't get you out of my mind. Please let me in."

" I wanted  him to f**k me, but I also wanted to kill him. It was exhausting--an inner battle that, at one moment, would have the sexual side dominating, winning the war--then I would lose control and want only to hurt him..."

I loved having an epilogue and seeing changes in the characters. It was a very different type of story for me, but in the end I think I liked it. 

Thanks to Alessandra Torre for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review
