* By Sara Davison and The Mosaic Collection
This was a tough book to read in some ways because it went into detail about the harsh treatment of girls that were forced into prostitution, an unsavory topic. But it brought the reality to the forefront and causes you to stop short and have pity on those caught up in this destructive behavior.
But the story was not all gloomy. It focused on compassion and a slow wooing of Starr by Detective Cole Blacksky, who was a very honorable man. Not only Starr but Cole grow spiritually and overcome things in their past. You cannot help but root for them as their love blooms. And you love to hate the villains.
A hard subject but an absorbing story and it shows how God can be with us even in the worst of circumstances. There are hints that another story will continue.

She is willing to testify against her trafficker.
If she can stay alive that long.
“You’re safe here, Starr.”
How many times has Detective Cole Blacksky said that to her since helping her escape the life she’d been forced into eight years earlier?
Starr desperately wants to believe him, but she knows Brady Erickson, her former captor, too well. Although Cole has promised her protective custody on his family’s remote ranch, no place on earth is safe enough. Brady will stop at nothing to permanently silence her before she ever reaches the witness stand.
And he is powerful enough to do it.
If Starr wants to help the other women, she has no choice but to put herself in God’s hands. And Cole’s. But the longer she and Cole stay hidden, the more her life is at risk.
And her heart.
