☆✮ My Review ✮☆
☆ I received an ARC via TRSOR PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆
#What an extraordinary read!!
Assumption was my first Aurora Rose Reynolds read *ducks head sheepishly* and it couldn't have given me an even better introduction into this talented author!!
I've always had a fascination with books that dove into more underground, gritty types of themes and Aurora delivered that for me... along with some steam! *wink wink*
Take two different individuals from two completely different worlds but once they come together, it's like magic!
I mean, when the vibe and the chemistry is there,
it's only a matter of time before love begins to show and once it's there it's highly insurmountable.
Even when all odds are pitted against you.
#A book I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to my book buddy pals that features a strong, dominating/alpha male and a broken yet strong willed female heroine!

☆✮ Excerpt ✮☆
I see you judging me. I know what you’re thinking. She has to be a slut; she works at a strip club and takes off her clothes for money. Yes! I work at a strip club, and you may think I’m a whore for showing off my body, but this is a talent that has been forced down my throat since I was a young child. Look pretty and smile. I put on a show for those who choose to watch. However long I’m on stage, I’m not even me. It’s what I imagine an out of body experience would be like—a performance, nothing more, nothing less. The people watching make assumptions about who they think I am, or cook up a story in their heads of whom they want me to be. I’m just another beautiful face.
Beautiful. I hate that fucking word. Who gives a crap if someone is attractive on the outside if they are dying inside? My whole life has been about what I look like. I swear, the only reason my mother kept me was to have a real-life, living, breathing doll she could dress up and control, which is the exact reason why as soon as I became eighteen, I got as far away from her special brand of crazy as I could. That’s also why I don’t date. The first thing guys do is look at me and see a pretty face, a nice body, and an empty space where my brain’s supposed to be. They have no interest in getting to know the person I am on the inside. They don’t care I volunteer my spare time, and they couldn’t care less I’m going to school to be an RN. They don’t ask about my hopes, my dreams, or about where I see my life in twenty years. They don’t care about me at all.
They just want someone pretty to follow them around and tell them how handsome they are, how special they are, while agreeing with everything they say. Fuck that! I did that for too many years. That’s why I live inside books. At least there I can choose where I want to be—from the highlands of Scotland, to a king’s bed in a faraway land—and even if it’s pretend, sometimes that’s a lot better than reality.
