Rio Hardin is not even nineteen yet, but has already had a very tough life. A runaway at sixteen, he has been selling his body for nearly three years.

Mick Matranga is much older and a werewolf enforcer. He lost his wife four years before and is just getting by.

When Rio is made into a sex slave by a deranged werewolf, someone has finally seen too much and gives an anonymous tip to the CSBE. The assignment is given to Mick. When Mick sees Rio for the first time he is on all fours on the end of a leash, and bleeding. He saves Rio but Rio has already been bitten by his captor and is due to have his first shift. While something about Rio calls to Mick, he does not want to listen. Instead, he tries to give up responsibility of Rio to others. Will he realize he is the best thing for Rio?

Just to tell you how good this book is, I read it all the way through twice in two days! I loved how the author showed how easy it is for young people to get sucked into prostitution, and why it happens. She wrote Rio with such sensitivity and emotion that as a reader you could not help but understand and even sympathize. I also thought that Mick being so much older than Rio was handled with style as well, Rio needed someone of his maturity. The way Ms. Steele handled the relationship between Rio and his father and how that all worked out was very well done as well. The lovemaking is hotter than hot as always, and a definite selling point for this reader. Put simply, go out and buy this one folks, you will not be sorry!
