Reviews by Marina, Jackie & Maimeo's Angels: Hooker by JL Perry

HOOKER - A heartbreakingly beautiful love story. One night of passion with a sinfully hot stranger will change everything ...


Jade’s young life was tough. After her mother died during childbirth and her father could no longer look after her, she was placed in foster care where she stayed for the next ten years. She grew up feeling unloved and unwanted as she was passed around from one screwed up home to the next.

Things began to look up for her when she was adopted by a wealthy socialite at the age of eleven. Sometimes though, things aren’t always what they seem. Jade didn’t know it at the time, but her new adoptive mother had big plans for her, and spent the next seven years grooming Jade for that role.

Jade learnt early in life that she couldn’t rely on anyone but herself. Instead of letting her circumstances beat her, she took all the negatives she’d been dealt, and used them to her advantage. She grew up to be a strong, successful, determined and independent woman. She was a loner by choice.

The only thing lacking in her life was companionship and love. She’d never experienced it, so she didn’t know what she was missing, until she had a one-night-stand with a handsome stranger. One night, that would change everything.


Brock grew up privileged. He had everything going for him. Money, looks, charm, success and an endless array of beautiful women. He wasn’t interested in commitment. To him women were easy. They practically threw themselves at his feet. All they wanted was to do something nobody had ever managed before. Snare the hot, rich bachelor.

Then he met Jade. She was like a breath of fresh air. A challenge. Nothing like the women he was used too. Their one night together ignited something within him. A burning desire to own her, possess her, but Jade had other plans. Nobody says no to Brock Weston, nobody.

He’s left wondering about a woman he knows he can never have. But, when fate brings them together again, will he get what he wants? Will he be able to claim the unattainable? Or will her secrets crush him, and destroy any chance they have of being together?

5 Star review
The title says it all, I was hooked from page one and could not put this book down..
Jade is brought up in the foster care system moving from home to home until she is adopted  by a wealthy socialite Madam Melody. On the face of it life is rosy  she has vacations, clothes and a private schooling but life is not always as it seems. M controls Jade and has her under contract.
When Jade walks into Brock at a airport shop  the attraction is instant, but for Jade the attraction can go no where she is still controlled by M what she didn't expect was Brock's determination to keep her in his life.
This book is a love story that's full of emotions, its a rollercoaster, it has twists and turns but most of all its good v evil .
Can true love win, will Jade escape M and will she be able to move on...
 "You may not be able to change the past, but you can shape your future" 
This book is told in dual POV and I loved it. I loved the characters and the bonds they had.
This is an amazing book and I'm not sure my words give it justice so I'm going to leave you with you need to read this book .

Hooked on the amazing words
Orgasmic in certain scenes Outstanding storyline Kinky times.... Exciting & Riveting characters!!! I was most definitely Hooked by Hooker!! A gripping and sexy story that you will not want to put down!! I couldn't stop reading! It was a story unlike anything else I have read before and the whole book intrigued me!!! JL Perry has written something that will leave you breathless, shocked and wanting!!! I truly believe she has a winner on her hands with this book!! I would read anything she writes!!!

This was a new author to me and I have to say I have no idea why. This is one of those books that I did not want to put down. I was riveted from the first to the last page. Hooker is told in dual points of view from Brock and Jade and I think this really works well.
Brock comes from a privileged background and is the head of his family’s company. They say money can’t always buy happiness and this is true in Brock’s case. A strained relationship with his mother, loathing his father, his brother is the only family that Brock wants to have anything to do with.
Jade is a product of the foster care system gone terribly wrong, she has been forced into the life of a high class Hooker by her adopted mother M; she hates her life and the only bright spots in it are Rupert, her driver who has become a friend.
The only break she gets from her regime is when she is allowed to go on holiday a couple of times a year to either New York or Paris. Even then M controls as much of that as she possible can. After buying a Snickers bar, she bumps into Brock at the airport and they are both instantly attracted to each other.
Despite her attraction Jade knows nothing can come of it, after all she has another 2 years left on her contract with M and she knows what happens when someone tries to defy her. When fate ensures these two meet again in New York, what Jade doesn’t count on is Brock’s determination to keep seeing her.
This book was such a roller-coaster of emotions, and at times I wanted to cry. Both Brock and Jade are very lonely in their own ways and I cheered so much when they got together.
Brock’s ability to see past the “Hooker” and see the real Jade was simply beautiful.  Jade has held her head up and dealt with the life she has been given. She has dreams and Brock wants to ensure that her dreams come true but first she has to escape the employment of her Madam.
Never have I disliked a character in a book more. I was absolutely thrilled when justice was finally served to M.
J.L Perry has written a beautiful and romantic, if at times heart stopping book about acceptance and love and I highly recommend to anyone you take the time and read this Australian author.
I was so invested with this book that I truly hope that J.L. Perry considers writing a follow up book.

That dream was realised on the 6th of June, 2014.
