I screw men and get screwed for money,
living my life everyday as Jericho Lane.
My clientele list is immaculate.
I am sought out, demanded
and damn good at my job.
I don’t care that these men have families at home,
or that they are important people.
I do it for the money.
There is nothing that could make me
feel a bit of remorse or
concern about what I do because
I was born with the inability
to experience or feel emotions...
I don’t feel PAIN
I don’t feel SORROW.
I don’t feel extreme HAPPINESS or LOVE
I am VOID.
A blank canvas of emotions.
an empty hole in an endless sea of
circumstances, moods and relationships.
Until one client changes EVERYTHING.
If you are looking for a book, that from the start, will have your complete attention, has characters that are riveting, add in some suspense, and has more twists and turns than your favorite rollercoaster then Void is the book you must pick up and read right now. I don’t want to give anything away so this review will be short and sweet but just please take my word that this is one that will stay with you even after you finish.
I had never heard of Alexithymia prior to reading Void and to be unable to understand or describe feelings like anger or sadness or even regret has got to be one of the hardest things a person would have to deal with. I know I am an emotional person, that is who I am, but to never be able to identify those emotions that I feel on a daily basis would be destructive to me, kind of like what it did to Nicola. Turning into an escort was the way that Nicola was able to finally feel something, even if it was through sex.
Okay remember when I said I don’t want to give anything away because I just really want you to read this? Well because of that I am not going to give anything away, but I will hint at this. Everyone has secrets, and sometimes those secrets are kept for good reasons and sometimes for bad. Not everyone is always who they seem to be. Just go out get this and read it. Cassy Roop has a winner on her hands with Void.
Cassy is a work at home mom where she spends her days surrounded by children running her in-home daycare. She loves to cook, read and spend her nights and weekends being a Les Mills group fitness instructor. She has been a lover of all things romance from a very early age. She hopes and dreams that everyone can receive their happy ever after. A good ol country girl at heart, she was born and raised in Arkansas and now resides in Charlottesville, Virginia with her husband and three young children.
