Character development: 😭😖😔🤐
The heroine: Paige – a nineteen year old student struggling to pay her bills and get through college with her degree. She has an older sister named Phoebe whose boyfriend opened up massive debts in her name to finance his crack habit, many of which were to loan sharks that wouldn’t like not being paid.
The Heroes: Brandon – He and his brother had been in business together with some other guys for years. It was an under the radar operation run through the dark web where he sold women for sixty days. The clients didn’t like the kind of women that would usually go for something like this. Brandon’s service offered the kind of girls that wouldn’t, the innocent, shy type.
The Story: Paige had been hearing about a club that sells girls for 60 days of submission, no safe words, no backing out. The girls are used like rag dolls by one or more men and don’t get a say in what is done to them, but sign up because the payout is big. There is also the assurance that at the end of the sixty days they will be delivered with the full payout and healthy with no lasting injury. Paige is desperate to help her sister and signs up.
This was an odd one. Brandon is a very shady character. Despite the whole business being consensual and the fact that the girls are getting paid for what they are doing. He is definitely looking for girls that have no inkling of what they are getting into. They can’t even comprehend the filthy and depraved things men with lots of money want for the prices they are bidding. So Brandon is definitely taking advantage of the women.
At the beginning we see Brandon with another one of the 60 day girls. He debases them on camera while his clients pay by the minute to watch and then bid on the things they want to do to the girl. Some of the bids he takes, some he declines and he does more and more to the girl on camera every day. When he first meets Paige, he forces her to beg to do a sexual act on three college guys. Though Paige does find that she likes it rough, she likes pain, and wants more. Though she have a clue know how f*cked up Brandon actually is.
The book was told in dual points of view in dual narration by James Grey and Lucille Walker. They are both British speaking narrators, which matched the book. Their voices matched the characters. Being from the United States, I am partial to the American accent, as the more formal British accent sounds a bit funny to me with all the dirty talk.
