Pierced by Sydney Landon, review by Dee

Lucian Quinn is the wonder boy of the business world. At twenty-nine, he owns one of the hottest software companies in the world. Personally, his life has been filled with tragedy and loss. He has learned to use his hate to survive and even thrive professionally, but his demons are always there, lurking just out of sight.

Lia Adams is a college student who has suffered through years of abuse at home to get to where she is today. She has done whatever was necessary to survive, including working as an escort for Date Night to pay for her education. Her life changes forever the day that Lucian Quinn’s friend convinces him to hire an escort for an important business dinner.

Circumstances bring two people that should have never crossed paths together and in the days and weeks ahead, they grow close quickly, each seeing a kindred soul in the other. As ghosts from their past rise to haunt them, they cling to each other as their lives start to spiral out of control. Soon, they realize that they’re both damaged possibly beyond repair. Will their love be what saves or destroys them?

This book very much reminds me of so many rolled into one. But it really makes me thing of wreck me by JL Mac. The young broken billionaire with the broken girl who's family has left her.  I'm not saying it's bad. It's very good. In fact I was sucked in from the beginning of the story of Luc and Lia. Luc has a big secret you know is going to be painful and Lia has a family, and I use that term loosely, that abused her and treated her like shit. She has the scars to prove it. Luc has scars too, emotional and physical and we don't get to delve too far into them, we just get a taste here and there. Then all the sudden's laid out there for us, though Lia still has to find out the story. Kind of hard to find out when the man rarely ever opens up. Their relationship is hot and heavy fast but they click on a level that they don't understand. A deeper level. We also get a dose of  a jealous ex but they both handle it so well. Especially Luc. I kinda loved the way he handled Cruella, to be honest. And I really love the way he handles how he feels about Lia. 

This book is written well and flows wonderfully. You will get sucked in and hate when you see the words "to be continued". It killed me. Especially where she left the story line.

 I give it 4 hearts.
