Beautiful, intelligent, independent, strong-willed, wealthy...
Lilith Fontenot seems, by all appearances, to have it all. But that's not how the highest paid prostitute in New Orleans sees herself.
A stain on society. A scourge. A waste. Outsider. Prisoner...
Any idyllic dream of the normal life she may have once imagined, Lilith buried long ago. Her only plan now is survival.
But mob boss Nico Santelli and community center owner Soti Christos have not given up on Lilith. Each has his own very specific, very opposing, plans for her, and neither will rest until it becomes a reality.
WHORE is a singularly bracing take on an ancient tale of tireless love, betrayal, and the possibility of redemption.

*** 3 Star Review ***
I was drawn to this book based on the title and cover. Those two components drew me in. I was seeing the book all over the place. People were raving about it everywhere I turned. So I decided to dive in.
I get why many are over the moon about this book. However, I didn't follow their train of thought with the characters and the story itself. I just didn't connect with the characters. Lilith and Soti felt under-developed to me. I didn't really jive with either of them. The supporting characters... eh. I just couldn't be all-in.
I love the idea of a woman standing up and forcing her own path instead of letting others dictate it for her. Lilith is one of those characters I really wanted to cheer for. But her story just didn't pull at me. It felt forced. I felt like Willow was holding back; afraid to really delve dark into this story.
I was thrown when Soti's revelation hit. That one really made me do a double-take. Kudos Willow, you really got me there!
Overall, this isn't a bad book; it's just not a book I am able to rave about. It was missing a little something for me.
